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!

What a shame. Never wanted to see this day. It is so sad and unfortunate for all of us. I will miss watching AMC at 12 on abc and soon OLTL at 1. Goodbye abc. Hello Prospect Park.

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 money flowing in their pockets. I have lost much respect for those who run this network. Shame on you.

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, I feel some sort of depression setting in on me.

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.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
