I think it’s very sad with all the television that is on that they picked such programing to cancel. AMC and OLTL are awesome soaps. I have been watching for years. It is fun entertainment. It also focused on important topics, abuse, rape, eating disorders, peer pressure, bullying and dealing with coming out and being gay. I enjoyed and look forward to watching both shows. Both soaps have such creative and talented actors. It’s not just the writers who make the show it is the team as a whole who brings it and makes it what it is. I think… Read more »

I am appaulled by the news I’m hearing that OLTL is being cancelled. I have watched OLTL for 19 years or more. I will not support any other Daytime soap once OLTL is off the air. I appreciate all the hard work that the producers. behind the scenes crews last but surely not the least the actors/actressses that put in a whole lot of dedication to their art & fans to keep us glued to the show for so so long. Some of us have been watching longer than others but we share the same sadness. I am so so… Read more »

I can’t believe it. Who wants to watch another food show. I’ve watched All My Children since I was 12 I feel like I just lost my bestfriends. Hopefully they will show up on another TV channel or cable channel.

I’m still upset over this. I can’t believe they did this. I have been watching abc soaps since for 30+ years. I’m just so numb right now, don’t know what think anymore. I feel so sorry for all the actress/actors of both shows. My favorite is OLTL and I can’t imagine them not being on t.v. I will not watch any talk shows or cooking show. That is just not going to happen. Fans are in an uproar right now about this. This one is hard to take. I hope that another Network picks them up or something. Brian Frons… Read more »

I agree that this idiot Brian Frons should be fired. It’s bad enough listening to those cackling hens on the View, which I would never watch, but to replace two outstanding soaps with this Crap called the Chew and the Revolution is being comprehension. Don’t worry come spring this time next year, they will realize what a disaster it was taking these soaps off the air. I know I won’t tune into ABC to watch this garbage. As a matter of fact this was the only reason I watched ABC. the rest of their programming sucks!!!!

I want you all to know that we are fighting to keep the soaps on the air! We do not want to see AMC or OLTL end and have all of you wonderful actors be out of your job you love so much. You are wonderful actors, none of you deserve this, and us fans sure don’t deserve to have these shows taken away, especially when most of us have been watching since childhood. My mom and I have set up a group on facebook, we are sending complaints, signing petitions and everything to do everything we can to change… Read more »

DON’T Cancel OLTL. I DVR it or watch on abc.com. I don’t think I was counted in the 2.6 million that watch. Many more watch it. After a 16 hour day of work and kids, I like to be taken away and entertained by OLTL. They make me laugh, sometimes cry. I never have to worry about stupid reruns or finding something to watch. Brian Frons has no idea what OLTL means to the fans. He obviously is not connected to the fans. Bring it back or lose an ABC watcher!!

This is the worst decision ABC has ever made. I think they are more interested in $$$, then they are about the Millions of Viewers who watch these programs, (and HAVE watched for 20, 30, and 40 years.) I don’t believe it has ANYTHING to do with ‘Lack Of viewers” MILLIONS of people continue to watch AMC and OLTL..And ALWAYS WILL. It’s all about producing a cheap reality show, and making more money for THEMSELVES. I believe that with every inch of my being. I’m mad, as I am sure millions of your fans are. These shows are so much… Read more »

I am so very sad that AMC & OLTL have been cancelled. OLTL is the best show on the ABC lineup as each episode is so entertaining! I will not watch the replacement shows. Very stupid decision, ABC.

This is definitely a HUGE mistake. Not all of us wish to watch food shows. Even if we did, I would only turn to the Food Network where the fabulous and famous cooks have been cooking for the last decade. I won’t be tuning in to see your new shows because it’s very unfair to the fans of so many years as myself i”ve been watching now since 1964 by taping and DVR”s. To just up and end good shows like One Life To Live. it saddens my heart. I will say in the future you will be wanting to… Read more »

I feel this is a HUGE Mistake!!! Who wants a cooking and talk show. We all
ready have that with FOOD NETWORK inwhich I dearly Love, and THE VIEW.
IF I want to watch a show regarding these subjects that is what i will watch,
NOT your new shows………..what’s wrong w/u people . Trying to replace
Jerry Ver Dorn and Robert Wood with a cooking channel. GIve me a Break here!
So unfair to us devoted fans since 1964. I’m 60 years so and still LOVING my
soap. You had better make the ending the way it should BE!! REALLY GREAT!!!

I have commented on just about every site I can find about how poor of a decision this is to cancel these shows….but I am thinking it is not going to do any good because the public is apparently not listened to!!!!!

I just found out today that AMC is being cancelled. I began watching the show in January 1970 and have watched almost every day since. When I can’t be home to watch , I tape it (yes, I still have a VHS tape). It’s been my one daily escape from all the pressures in my work and sometimes in life. I’m not a fan of more talk shows or cooking shows. It’s doubtful I’ll be watching the replacements. I guess I’ll have more time to read. I’ll miss this show.

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
