DEVIOUS MAIDS Renewed For Second Season!

Score on for Lifetime, who picked up on the pilot of Desperate Housewives’ Marc Cherry of Devious Maids after ABC Television Network eventually decided not to move forward with it!

Today, the cable network renewed Devious Maids from ABC Studios for a second season and 13 all-new episodes in 2014, meaning All My Children’s former star, Susan Lucci will be back filming another season of this soapy dramedy! Current AMC star, Paula Garces has played the killed-off devious maid in season one!

Since its premiere on June 23, nearly 23 million viewers have watched Devious Maids on Lifetime. It is the network’s fastest-growing drama ever, and has catapulted Lifetime to cable’s number one network in the Sunday 10:00pm ET/PT time slot among Women. Its 18% Hispanic composition nearly doubles Lifetime’s primetime average.

“One of the most daring series on television, Devious Maids has quickly become a hit,” Lifetime exec vp and GM Rob Sharenow said of the drama, from ABC Studios, Televisa USA and exec producers Eva Longoria and Sabrina Wind. “ABC Studios has had a great partnership with Lifetime and Televisa and we’re looking forward to another terrific season with Marc Cherry and his talented cast and crew,” said Stephanie Leifer, Senior Vice President, Current Programming, ABC Studios.

Devious Maids revolves around a group of maids (Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes) who are bonded by their jobs, struggles and employers’ “upstairs-downstairs” universe.

So what do you think of the renewal of Devious Maids?  Is it one of your favorite new shows? Do you think now that Maids’ will be back in action, Susan Lucci is less apt to join All My Children and reprise her role of Erica Kane? Or, do you think she will still work something out to return?  Weigh-in!

Great news, love this show. But, this tells me that Client List is NOT coming back. If they have already renewed DM, & still no word about Client List, & one of the main actors got another show, does not look good.. JLH must really be sticking to her guns about having her baby daddy deep into the show.

I wouldn’t give up hope for The Client List. Since Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant; the show won’t be able to resume production in the immediate future. They may be waiting to hear how much involvement she’ll want to have after having the baby.

This is truly horrid bec this is probably 1 of the most racist dramas. Telenovela remake only cast latin american actresses as the help. While majority white actors were cast as their rich employers. Yet telenovela had the help and their employers portrayed by latin american actors. Of course hollywood kept all of the help as latin americans but made the rich chars majority white bec tolerant hollywood obviously wouldn’t be comfortable w/ a white maid cast member serving a racial minority char. Shows like this only encourage more racism towards latin americans. What makes devious worse is that its… Read more »

This is a fun show that let’s you forget the stresses of every day life. It isn’t meant to be a political statement good or bad or some revolutionary show that will solve world peace. The issues of racism and stereotypes is not necessary. It is entertainment. Sadly, the public – not just Latinos may not be supporting it enough. It looks like it may be cancelled but I am hoping that someone can save it. It is so much fun. Guilty pleasure. As for Susan Lucci, All My Children is gone yet again. I do think she would have… Read more »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
