Investigation Discovery Renews Susan Lucci's Deadly Affairs For Third Season!



While Susan Lucci won’t be reprising the role of Erica Kane of Pine Valley any time soon, she will reprise her gig as host of Deadly Affairs for cabler, Investigation Discovery! Today, the channel has greenlit the real-life soap opera crime series for a season three.

“We just can’t get enough of Susan Lucci — our affair with her is out in the open and we couldn’t be happier to continue for a third season,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Military Channel and Destination America.  “Our viewers are often tempted by the suspense of ‘will they or won’t they?’ — and with Deadly Affairs we already know they did — and they probably shouldn’t have!

According to the official press release, Deadly Affairs was one of ID’s top five shows during 3Q 2013 in delivery for W25-54, W18-49, and P25-54.  The series continued to entice fans with titillating stories all season long reaching over 9.7 million unique viewers P2+.  The new season promises to deliver stories of passionate love affairs turned crimes of passion when it premieres summer 2014.”

La Lucci weighed in on the renewal pick-up and stated, I am so excited to be going into Season three with Deadly Affairs, And I’m even more excited that so many fans are telling me that they are ‘addicted’ to the show!”

So have you been watching Susan Lucci on Deadly Affairs?  Will you be checking out season three?  Comment below?

No… but do love her in Devious Maids, and can’t wait for season 2 !!!

Never heard of it.

good for susan lucci, she is one busy bee. lol. i love susan so much. still miss her alot as erica kane.

What happened to all her commercial endeavours did they dry up after All My children ie. malibu pilates and that skin program thing?

I would love to see Erica make a guest appearance on GH!!


Yes, more La Lucci on GH, Deadly Affairs and Devious Maids – I wish she were on mainstream tv though. Devious Maids and Deadly Affairs are both worthy of more tv. She should wrap up the Erica Kane role on GH or have her continue at least too.

I do not watch that show, but I recommend everyone should tune in for Devious Maids..Good show with an all around great cast that includes Susan..Look forward to season 2.

I watched an ep of the show and didn’t enjoy it.

I don’t care much for Ms. Lucci anymore..And don’t watch these shows.. No interest.

I am not a big soap fan but admired the Erica Kane character when I watched All My Children until the last few years when the show went stupid and crazy and didn’t write for the key characters like Erica Kane. Lucci is so good on Devious Maids though and so campy and vampy on Deadly Affairs you have to like the show. Lucci is a goody goody on Devious Maids and is a supporting role but I think Marc Cherry should use her more she should have committed suicide again at the end of the first season after losing her son to Africa and her husband to be again due to murder/suicide. She brings fun to tv.

Even though I STILL MISS her as the VERY FABULOUS Erica Kane on AMC, I’m glad to hear that Susan Lucci’s career is STILL GOING STRONG. RIGHT ON, MISS LUCCI!!!!!


Susan Lucci is stealing the show on Devious Maids. Wow – all the criticism in the past about her acting is gone. She is amazing. She deserves an Emmy for this work. She has amazing comedic talent and you really believe her character even though Genevieve is so crazy.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos to Kick Off Season 36 of ‘Live’ with New Show Opening

The new season of morning talk shows begins this week, and one of them, Live with Kelly and Mark, is starting things off with a new show open starring the hosts and married couple, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, formerly of All My Children fame.

Make sure to circle Tuesday September 5th, when Kelly and Mark begin their first official season together as co-hosts of the long-running show now in its 36th season.  As many know, Consuelos joined the show back in April of this year, after Ryan Seacrest made the decision to depart the series and move back to Los Angeles full-time, since the talker is shot in New York City.

In the concept of the new opening, the husband and wife duo are seen brushing their teeth in their apartment, then going through a couple of outfit changes/looks, before they settle on what they wearing as they are driven to their New York City studio where ‘Live’ emanates from, and arrive in its corridors.

In addition, this season will have a new trivia game segment called Stump Mark.  In it, Mark will try his darnedest to keep the coveted Live mug away from trivia callers trying to stump him with their two statements — one true, one false.

Scheduled guests for the week: Derek Hough, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Etheridge, Josh Gad, Shinedown, Phillip Phillips, Nikki and Brie Bella and more.

Take a look at the opening title sequence for Live with Kelly and Mark below, and then let us know what you thought of it in the comment section, and let us know if you are looking forward to the new season of the talk show.

Kelly Ripa Teases New Season of ‘Live’ with Husband Mark Consuelos: “Our Show Is Best When It’s Going Off the Rails”

Since Mark Consuelos joined his real-life wife, Kelly Ripa on the morning talk show Live with Kelly and Mark, the ratings have never been better.  In fact, according to the Nielsen ratings, the former All My Children stars came in second behind The View for the 2022-2023 television season in total viewers averaging 2.293 million.

Now with the new season upon us come September, Ripa spoke with the Purist about what fans can expect now that Mark is coming into his own as her co-host.

Kelly shared, “We’re going to provide the same sort of humor and irreverence that people have come to know and love. Mark has taken the trivia game, where Ryan (Seacrest) and I would just give away coffee mugs to the audience, and decided that he’s not going to do that any more. There are no participation trophies in life, he says. If they want to win a mug, they’re going to have to stump me. I don’t really follow the ratings, but from what I’ve been told that since Mark has taken over, people stay with the show all the way through because they want to see whether or not Mark gets stumped.”

When asked what favorite segment on Live is her current favorite, Ripa expressed, “I love talking to the trivia callers. Our show is best when it’s going off the rails, when our audience gets to see the slip-ups. It is not this highly polished, Hollywood thing. It is two people meeting, having coffee, having just read the paper. We never cover actual news, we cover absurd news. When you factor in a person calling from their cellphone in the parking lot of a grocery store, what have you, it is rife with the ability to derail very quickly, and I think that’s what I love the best. I also love our viewer feedback at the very end of the show, where we take our viewers.”

So, are you looking forward to more Live with Kelly and Mark? Enjoying the duo on-screen together on the morning talker? What are your favorite staple segments from the show? Comment below.

The Broadway community is mourning the passing of one of their most beloved members, who also appeared on several daytime soap operas throughout her career.  Pamela Blair, the original Val in A Chorus Line, died at her home in Phoenix, Arizona on Sunday following a lengthy illness. Blair was 73-years-old.

Throughout her career, the singer/dancer/actress continued to showcase her exceptional talents in shows such as: Promises, Promises, Wild and Wonderful, Sugar and Seesaw. She also gained major kudos from the musical theatre community for her portrayal of Amber in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. 

Pamela also had notable roles on soap operas taped in New York City. First, Blair played Elizabeth Shank Ryan on Ryan’s Hope in 1980. She followed that with her most-known daytime role as Loving’s Rita Mae Bristow, a part she played from 1983-1985.

Later in 1985, 1986 and in 1992, Blair made brief appearances in two roles on All My Children, Maida Andrews and Mrs. Goodman.  It was the role of Maida Andrews that landed Blair a Daytime Emmy nomination in the newly named Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series back in 1987, only losing that year to John Wesley Shipp for his role of Martin Ellis on Santa Barbara.  Blair’s last soap role was in 1994 as Another World’s Bonnie Broderick.

Throughout her enduring career, she appeared in numerous television and motion pictures including: Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, Law & Order and the motion pictures version of Annie.
