Can it be that time already? Afraid so.  But today in Los Angeles, the cast and crew of All My Children completed taping its final episode in their remarkable 41 year run on the ABC Television Network.  And while the final episode scripts are shrouded in secrecy, and the actors  (as you will see from Ricky Paull Goldin’s tweet) were apparently not permitted to post any thing from the final taping on the Internet via social networking outlets Twitter and Facebook, a few of them did get a few moments to share with their followers and fans their sentiments on the bittersweet and sad final tape day.

Here a just a few:

Wednesday:

Susan Lucci (Erica) @susanlucci “Last day of shooting here at AMC..doesn’t seem real. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all our passionate viewers. Love you. Susan…”

Tuesday:

Lindsay Hartley (Cara) @ L_Hartley “Such an intense and deeply emotional day in pine valley. We don’t know what the future holds. We just have to keep the faith. Goodnight.”

Chrishell Stause (Amanda) @chrishell7 “On the last day of taping AMC THIS was my fortune from my cookie! 🙂 Silver lining on a sad day http://yfrog.com/h79znxcj”

Ricky Paul Goldin (Jake) @rickygoldin ” “Hi live from the last day on the set of ALL MY CHILDREN!! Crazy emotional!!” http://yfrog.com/kf88949472j”

Cameron Mathison (Ryan) @cameronmathison “Thank you all for the well wishes on this last day of taping #AllMyChildren . Let’s hope we are all back together again in a few months!xxoo   I wish I could GIVE each of you all the happiness and MORE that you have given me through your support on this show. Sending lots of love.”

From On-Air On-Soaps and from the entire soap community and its legions of fans, we salute you Pine Valley and the cast and crew of All My Children for an astounding 41 years on network television! A job well done!

Next up, a move online via Prospect Park, but for now make sure to watch the final weeks of episodes of All My Children on ABC, with the final airdate, September 23rd!

I can’t believe it will be gone, Watched since I was a kid, grew up with many of the characters. Taped it and watched when I got home from work for years.

So bummed I was not asked to participate in any capacity whatsoever. I guess quitting the show so many years ago really rubbed someone the wrong way. I wish peace and happiness to all those who are now without work after ‘drinking the koolaid’ and moving to L.A….

Sad day for soaps on television. I was hoping Ryan Lavery would end with AMC final ABC episode, and now I find out he is moving to PP online AMC.. Ugh… I am sick of AMC revolving around Ryan & Rylee. I was hoping Ryan and Greenlee would leave Pine Valley for good on the 9/23, and never be heard from again.

Because there’s so much that is unknown about AMC/OLTL going online with Prospect, who is staying and who is going, I can’t help but feel this is a huge loss to everyone who has been entertained by these soaps for all these year. We were told at first that it was just rumors that our shows were going off the air and then to learn with very little warning to even the cast and crew that this was going to be come a reality shows how ABC has very little integrity for their network and the people that keep the… Read more »

I met my husband while both of us were watching All My Children in a bar. In 1984. When Tad was involved with both Liza and Marion. In November we will have been together for 27 years.

AMC is part of my family and I will miss you all.

I can’t believe my daytime soaps are ending. I watch them on the soap channel every night when I get home from work, since I work evenings. I have been watching AMC, OLTL and GH since I was big enough to remember. Started watching them with my mother in the early 1970’s. OMG, and I have introduced my children and now my grand children to the soaps and they love them. What will we do. I honestly feel as though a part of me is dying because the soaps are such a huge part of my everyday life. Even now,… Read more »

I’ve been watching AMC since 8th grade, I am now 56! My grandmother, mother, me and my daughter/son all watched it. I met quite a few of the actors over the years, can’t believe a stupid cooking show is replacing it, just ridiculous and I will NOT be watching it. Same with One Life to Live, met some of them and that is way better than General Hospital. What a shame so many people will lose their jobs over this selfish man and is shenanigans.

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.
