While thus far the cast list has been small for Prospect Park’s online version of All My Children, especially with the returnees from the ABC version of the iconic series, there is some very encouraging news today from ABC Soaps In Depth.

SID is hearing from multiple sources that fan favorite Cady McClain is set to reprise her role of Dixie in the online reboot.  Given that Prospect Park has yet to announce additional names to the cast, many feel an announcement may be imminent.

Are you excited about Cady being part of the new All My Children? Would you like Michael E. Knight to come on board, so the duo could continue to tell the love story of Tad and Dixie?  Let us know your thoughts!

I’m excited but need Michael too, I’m hoping more actors have signed on and we just haven’t been told yet, Last I heard Walt WIlley hasn’t been contacted or Bobbie Eakes, Sarah and Christine.

I agree, Jewell. I can’t understand why Walt and Bobbie haven’t been contacted! They have been major players on AMC for years. Walt even posted that he’d be happy to bring Jackson back. I don’t get it!

I just adored Krystal….. what a transformation…. from good girl innocent Macy… to smelling salt femme fetale…. Krystal….. She gew in to her womanhood…. course she could have dallianced more with that hot dr. david hayward…. loved her twin daughters….

especially, now with Marissa, wed to Bianca! Krystal is a must have on the nuAMC.

Since LH, Cara Castillo will be returning Tad should be with her.
He does love her and those two had chem and Tad was soooo alive when they were together, Tad was renewed while with Cara, an awesome couple..

Tad and Dixie were worn out, they are not good together any-longer, but Tad and Cara WOW!! they are great together!! Loved Tad with Cara!!

Patrick
Patrick

I couldn’t believe it…. Tad and Cara….. SIZZLED….

we both know… they were split to accommadate Dixie….

I was so happy Cara at the very least ended up with Dr. David… and was Pregnant… Tears…. even for Dr. David….. for all the drama of his “demons”… watching him with Marissa and Krystal…. and hopefully… now, with Cara….

if Cara was to triangle with Tad again…. and Dr. David….. that would make for excitement…. and notwithstanding… Dixie.

Call me confused but we found out in 2009 (when we found out that Trevor was not his) that Dr. D couldn’t bear children. Whose baby is Cara really carrying?

Praise the soap gods if Cady is on board! Her and MEK sign on, I’m there. My T&D back on my screen, oh that will be a happy day. 🙂

Yes, Yes, Yes, Tad and Dixie together again. What could be any better. Father Clarence told me that Tad and Dixie is AMC’s favorite couple. I know he is right. He always is you know. He told me if I were patient, AMC would return. I left my trust in him and now look. Ta Da. All our friends and family are returning to Pine Valley. I am so excited, I hope I don’t pee my pants.

I’m hoping to see Chrishell Stause & Ricky back and that sweetie Stephanie Gatschet. Thorston Kaye & Alicia please come back home.

I’m wondering if the lead actors haven’t been contacted or if they have been sworn to secrecy? Maybe AMC for the most part is going to be a BIG surprise. Didn’t Jennifer Bassey aka Marian Colby Chandler hint at a big surprise a few weeks ago someone said in a tweet but she couldn’t say what it was? So it makes me wonder??

SL/Erica and MK/Tad did not want to go on with PP, online, I doubt they will change their minds..
No matter if we’d like them back some simply do not want to go on-line and now it seems they have retired from the soap scene.. .

time will tell ..

Yay!!!

Well it would be great if she could return as Dixie, to help give advice to the “new” JR Chandler [whomever he may be] – I have not heard a word about Michael Knight returning as Tad Martin, maybe they will recast Tad – there have been 4 Tad Martins through the years but of course the role is most remembered as being portrayed by Michael Knight. Maybe actors are holding out for, how can I phrase it nicely, more lucrative offers than what is currently being put on the table. At any rate, they need to at least launch the show with familiar faces and then as momentum builds they can gradually add in new additions to Pine Valley but it would be nice to have the Martins and the Chandlers and the Kane women in place.

Yes, love Cady. Was always a fan of hers. It would be fantastic to have Michael E. Knight back too. He adds the humor to the show. I’m quite excited about this going online. Will be wonderful to have old cast and some new. Looking forward to seeing AMC again (maybe with a new twist).

YAY! I was hoping Cady would sign on for the online version. Dixie really was great her last return, and need more years of her being alive on my screen! Bring Tad with you!

I am so excited she is coming back! Now Tad must come back!!! He was my favorite actor on the show, so so funny! Please bring back Tad & Dixey!

BRING BACK TAD and DIXIE. Michael Knight should come back for the fans who have always loved him and his superior acting abilities. There isn’t anyone better for a romantic and/or comedic role. Please consider coming to Online AMC!!

Michael isn’t returning at this point. Something about scheduling conflicts and he can’t do it right now. Vincent, Darnell, Debbie, Thorsten and Cady are the only members of the main original cast signed on. Everyone else is really supporting cast. They’re supposedly trying to play to a younger audience, but if they don’t get more familiar faces to play the characters we love, the reboot isn’t going to work.

Love Tad & Dixie. Need Tad and Dixie. Need Cady! Need MEK!

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

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.
