Could do without Frankel and Jenner.

I’d like them to have a host.

I can’t help but feel bitter knowing that the Daytime Emmys completely ignored paying tribute to the greatest actress who has ever graced the soap opera genre – Beverlee McKinsey.

Maybe Ms. McKinsey will be remembered this year. I don’t remember a memorial tribute on every Daytime Emmy telecast. Have they done one every year? I remember Ms. McKinsey as Iris on Another World. Did not watch her on CBS (Guiding Light?) Also from Another World, Jacky Courtney is gone too. Maybe she will be remembered if she has already been.

Why does Betty White have to be everywhere? She’s like the Ryan Seacrest of TV these days.. ANNOYING!

Bite your tongue!!! Betty White may be all over the place, I give you that. But she isn’t 1/10 as annoying as that in-the-closet, overtanned nobody.

haha!! Okay, okay… the lady needs to follow Barbara Walters and hang it up already though!

Why should she “hang it up” when it is something she loves doing and has done for years? Just because someone is older in age does not mean they should stop living. Look at legends like Jeanne Cooper, 84-years-old and she worked until she could no longer physically go on. I think it is very ignorant to be agist and insist elderly men and women should retire from something they love and are good at just because of their age.

Well, Jeanne Cooper was on one show and Betty White is all over the place. It’s not ignorant & I don’t appreciate being called names on here since I didn’t attack YOU personally, now did I? It’s called too much of one person splashed all over the place and it is annoying! Kind of like a movie star that makes 20 movies a year — that gets old too.. OR the Kardashians all over the frigging place. Too much of anyone is annoying. It’s my opinion & I’m entitled to it and sticking to IT!

Nikki

How is she “all over the place”? She has one show that she is on and she is presenting at the Emmys, which isn’t a stretch since she was on Bold & the Beautiful. I didn’t call YOU ignorant, I said it is ignorant to be ageist, which you appear to be from your comments. I understand that is your opinion and that is very unfortunate and I feel badly for you.

Keep up the good work, Betty White! You are an inspiration to a lot of people…just not ALL people! (smile) Sounds like this detractor is a good candidate to get spoofed on “Off Their Rockers”! LOL!!!!!!!!!

I think it sounds great thus far, and I am thrilled that HLN will broadcast it. Clearly on this channel, it will be based more on content than fluff advertisements as in recent years past. I look forward to tuning in!!!

I guess I’m old school, but I am more interested in hearing what soap opera stars are going to be presenting. If they need these other people to help bring in ratings and keep it on the air, I can live with it, but none of those stars outshine my daytime TV stars.

Me too Rodd….it’s sad & shameful when talk shows are built around the daytime Emmys because there are more of those damn talk shows now then soaps….depressing…

The only part that I want to see is the Jeanne Cooper tribute so I hope someone puts it on YouTube because I will not watch the Daytime Emmys anymore. The show hasn’t been any good since they stopped showing clips of the soap actor nominees. I don’t watch any game or daytime talk shows so I’m not interested in the rest of it.

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
