Susan Lucci has found herself in a familiar place – that of sad cancellation of a show in which she stars.  On Thursday, Deadline revealed that Lifetime has chosen to not renew the soapy Devious Maids for a fifth season.

Devious Maids was executive produced by Eva Longoria and starred Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez and Judy Reyes and developed and created by Marc Cherry.  The series wound up on Lifetime after being developed by ABC, and the network chosing to  not pick it up for series.

While the soapy ‘Maids’ got off to a solid start, the ratings have slipped in each consecutive season, with the most recent fourth season averaging 0.923 million viewers (L+SD), but the show has been consistent, with virtually no drop-off throughout Season 4. Its average still was twice the viewership of Lifetime’s other original scripted series, the critically praised UnReal.

Wrapping a respectable four-season run, Devious Maids, from ABC Studios, was the first all-Latina ensemble on English-speaking television.

Darn that’s bad Lifetime, this show was good, and funny and all, had an awesome cast.
As for the other show UnReal, it’s not that good.

That sucks!! They left it off on a cliffhanger!

Nooooooo! This was campy, soapy fun and Rebecca Wisocky stole the show as Evelyn Powell.

If GH is adamant about not bringing Ron Carlivati back as head-writer, they should reach out out to the Devious Maids writers who knew how to tell a story with twists, character development, humor, AND a pay-off in only13 weeks…something Jean and Shelly have yet to do in nearly a year’s worth of episodes.

Preaching to the choir!

I loved this show and it got better each season. Please bring it back or if not do a movie to wrap it up. There is no more shows on this channel, army wives another’s how I loved is also gone and so am i.

Wow this is s shocker, I loved the show. Susan Lucci can come back to Daytime. Y&R please hire Susan Lucci as a new love interest for Victor Newman.

I watched approximately 5 episodes.. ehh didn’t care for it..
And Susan Lucci, well she was still Erica Kane LOL

NOOOOOOOO! This was my favorite night soap and the cast is stellar and MUST be brought back somehow…! On-line petition anyone?

I loved that show. It was so funny and every season ended with a cliff hanger. It would be great if they could at least have one last “movie” to wrap up the loose ends. I am going to miss it , the actors and the wonderful writing.

I LOVED THAT SHOW! IT WAS HILARIOUS!

Lifetime finally has something worth watching, and they cancel it. Stop the insanity, TV people!

You could tell that for Season 4’s closer that they were trying to “wrap it up” just in case in got cancelled, I suspected it might though season Four was good.
Nothing lasts anymore, it’s a shame really. I enjoyed seeing Susan on it, and the show itself was similar to Desperate Housewives – I liked it, sorry to see it cancelled but I’m getting used to alll my shows being cancelled a this point.

Boo! Such a great show. Susan Lucci was at her best as Genevieve and the couple playing the Powells were my favorites.

I would love the writers of this soap take on daytime dramas. They know how to do comedy, drama and cliffhangers.

Susan Lucci should go, to Days of Our Lives as the new Vivian Alamain, I would accept a recast. I still love Louise Sorel as my madam, but Louise will not come back to Days.

– another – network should pick this up… an established show

my first thought… they didn’t want to have to pay for syndication right

a lot of shows are cancelled because of this reason

I’m disappointed saddened… and just a little pissed

this is a great MIX of cast… LOVE the Latina

I think that is a very unfortunate decision for Lifetime. They could use a good show in their stable. And why couldn’t they give “DM” another season to wrap things up? That’s so unfair to those of us who have stuck with this show through all four seasons. There’s not another show on Lifetime that watch. Boo!

But a big “Thank You” to the cast and crew of “DM” for some very funny and entertaining moments over the years. Best wishes on your future endeavors. You’ll be missed.

shame for susan lucci and former all my children fans who had her back on tv . It is show biz and cancellations come with the territory . Hope marc cherry comes up with a new concept , maybe ” Desperate networks ” revolving around the drama between 2 rival networks , the people who work there and their families at home .

Susan Lucci Reveals She Was Contacted to Gauge Interest in Becoming ‘The Golden Bachelorette’

All My Children icon and Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement honoree, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), apparently was being considered for the lead in the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelorette.

Making this all the more intriguing is Lucci admitted she really enjoyed The Golden Bachelor’s season and has become a fan and thus a part of ‘Bachelor Nation.’

Although former ‘Golden Bachelor’ contestant Joan Vassos was the ultimate pick by ABC and the producers of The Golden Bachelorette, Lucci told PEOPLE that the show reached out to her people.

Susan shared, “I believe that they contacted my publicist and it wasn’t for me.” She added, “I watched The Golden Bachelor, and I really enjoyed watching The Golden Bachelor. This is a new addiction for me.”

And a few years back. her assistant got Lucci hooked on The Bachelor, as she expressed on the dating series, “I was immediately engaged. I cared. I wanted to know more about these people.”

The outlet shared that they did reach out to ABC and Warner Bros. about potential interest in Susan. However, they did not respond. A source then told the publication that Lucci was not offered a role.

For Susan, finding a second chance at love is an interesting proposition; given that she had the most incredible and enduring 53-year marriage to her late husband and manager, Helmet Huber, who passed away at 84-years-old back in March of 2022.

So, what do you think of Susan being contacted to see if she was interested in becoming ABC’s ‘Golden Bachelorette’ for the senior dating-reality series? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
