RCA recording artist and American Music Awards winner Hot Chelle Rae stopped by the set of All My Children yesterday  in Stamford, CT for a special performance.

In the scene, AJ Chandler, played by actor Eric Nelsen, asks Hot Chelle Rae to make a special stop to Pine Valley to sing their brand new single “Hung Up” as a surprise for his best friend Miranda Montgomery, played by actress Denyse Tontz. Hot Chelle Rae is AMC’s first musical guest. The episode is slated to stream on Thursday, May 9!

“We’re pumped to be performing on All My Children.  It’s such an iconic show that bridges our parent’s generation with ours. Now that the show is online, we can reach even more people with our music. All of our fans have been loving the song, and it’s cool for these characters on the show to represent our fans,” said lead singer/guitarist Ryan Follesé.

Winners of the 2011 American Music Awards for Best New Artist, Hot Chelle Rae continues to make their mark in the music industry. Their sophomore album, Whatever, featuring the mega-smash hits “Tonight Tonight,” and “I Like It Like That,” sold more than 6 million singles. “Hung Up” is the first single released from their upcoming album which is due out later this year on the RCA label. During 2012, Hot Chelle Rae spent much of the year on a worldwide headlining tour and support dates with Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. On April 1, Hot Chelle Rae premiered their ‘Hung Up” video on the website, VEVO. Hot Chelle Rae is lead singer Ryan Follesé, lead guitarist Nash Overstreet, bassist Ian Keaggy and drummer Jamie Follesé.

These real life musical acts are a great idea…but its nothing too new! I still think PP could succeed much better if they made two versions of each soap…one that is edited and removes the f bomb ect. and graphic sex and nudity for those who dont want it, and an unedited version for those who do. PP wins and so does all the fans!

The idea of showing two soap versions would appease fans on opposite sides of the content debate plus i feel it would also be good for ratings as well because it would attract more fans, especially those who oppose the addition of certain curse worse, nudity and graphic sex scenes. This way both sides can enjoy the show we fought so hard to keep!

Most recent funny soap line…when A.J. on gh told Tracy he owned the name rights to pickle lila…sound like an inside joke about the debate over the use of OLTLs John, Todd, and Starr on GH…now thats funny! LMAO!!!

Who? Just bring the shows back.. i’ll fast forward past the crap passing as music. Don’t wanna sound like an old foggie, but music died for me about 8 years ago. I know they are making stuff and passing it off as music, but I find music from the 90s, 80s, 70s vastly superior to the crap today.. but then again those people had talent. Music was about something then, and not merchandising.

I new there would plenty of good music on the soaps.. That was their plan 1st time around.
PP, their business is mainly handling huge music stars/bands..
Most likely that is where most of the many came from to take on AMC and OL ..

It is money in PP pocket as they will offer the downloading of the songs probably for .99 a download..
They will continue to promote their stars on the soaps, a great combination!!!

I think the more music the better! I think it’s a great showcase for musicians.

I love that these shows are not going to be the same old tired dog. And I wish people stopped complaining about the additional profanity and sex scenes – these shows were never chaste to begin with. I find it funny that it’s NOW that people are starting to get riled up. I say do whatever you have to do to have these shows stay on and more importantly, bring in new, younger viewers.

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.

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”
