Michael E. Knight On If He Will Return To All My Children!

Long time All My Children fan favorite Michael E. Knight is sorely missed these days as Tad Martin on the revival of the series from TOLN and Prospect Park.  Knight is keeping busy though, and will be seen in a fantastic guest star role on an upcoming episode of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva on the July 14th episode!

TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan caught up with Knight to ask him not only about his guest star turn but if he plans on finally making a return to Pine Valley and All My Children, where the character of Tad has been recently talked about on new episodes!

Knight has this to say if a return is imminent to AMC:  “For sure I will be back. You know, the reason I didn’t want to continue with AMC when Prospect Park took over was that I had done the show for 20 years straight and one move cross-country in two years was enough for me. I was tired! Plus I felt I had done everything there was to do on the show. I came back from the dead. I was twins. I had amnesia. I did everything but give birth and marry Erica! But I’m definitely up for a visit so, yeah, Tad will make his presence known in Pine Valley. Maybe not really soon but someday. And I mean that. “

Knight on leaving Cady McClain (Dixie) solo on the new AMC :  “Now she knows how I felt. [Laughs] She died twice and was gone for ages. Now she knows what I had to deal with! I love Cady. ”

So AMC fans, are you optimistic that Michael will be back as Tad sooner than later?  Do you think a big piece of life in Pine Valley is missing without him? Share your thoughts!

I would be happy with Tad there full time but if he can’t just a few shows every month would really make me happy.

I grew up with Tad. I started watching AMC with my grandmother. My dad wasn’t a fan of AMC until Tad, and all his teenage antics. Ever since then my dad was hooked. I think I’ve been watching since 1973 or 1974 when I was 7, or 8 years old. I know in a perfect world everyone would be back, but its no, and abc saw to it that it couldn’t be. For right now ill take what I can get.

I certainly do hope that Michael E. Knight does return to AMC! He is a talented actor, and I truly miss Tad. He and Dixie are definitely a couple!

I sure do miss him very much. I am glad to hear that at some point he will visit Pine Valley. Now to get Greenlee, Ryan and Kendall back would be icing on the cake! How about Jack and Erika and please more Adam!

Beth

ICAM about Kendall, Jack and Erica, and Ryan and Greenlee are ok, too, but I especially want more Kanes back on the show! Hopefully Susan Lucci and Alicia Minshew will be returning to AMC soon for more than just one episode’s worth of scenes. As for Tad, MEK should always have a home at AMC. The show needs more veterans and more Martins, and I want to see a Tad & Dixie back together again, and I hope to see Zach and Kendall reunite onscreen, too! There’s no good reason for the Slaters’ divorce. None.

AJ

I believe it’s a BIG mistake for Alicia Minshew not to return ASAP. I know she has other things going on and what’s to explore her fame outside of soaps.. but this is her opportunity to seize power and become THE star of AMC, like Erica Slezak is of OLTL and Susan Lucci was of AMC.

Minshew has an opportunity to take on the role of the lead woman on a soap that could give her job security for decades. While there is still the perception that soaps are going the way of the dood.. I believe they’ll come back in a big way and prove themselves sustainable.

My sentiments exactly Lisa. Tad was the stable.predictable character on the show whereas Greenlee, Kendall, and Ryan were the fireworks of fantastic acting. I pray the day comes they all return even for short stints. Anything appearance is better than none and it would keep the storylines coming. My fingers are crossed!

Would love to see Michael Knight back on AMC with Cady McClain. I love Michael’s character and sense of humor on the show. The show is lacking that now. Definitely the show needs him back. Miss ya

Johnny

Have to agree Deborah the show really and truly is missing some humor. It’s also missing some stronger scripts but hopefully that is in the works down the road a tad. Speaking of Tad, yes I hope that Michael Knight returns to Pine Valley as TAD MARTIN because brother, they really need his presence. It’s like, he’s the link between Dixie being there and Opal and a close friend for years of Angie and Jesse Hubbard.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I would like to see Billy Clyde attempt to romance Opal…they together could add some humor to the show…they could be the next Phoebe and Langley…id come back and watch that…probably no agreements her to the pairing but i feel it could be comic gold if written right. But first Opal wouldnt be attract to him.

Kari

Yes he is missed so much!! I would love to see him back full time, but will take what I can get. I have to say that Micheal/Tad have been what I missed and still miss the most since the ABC/D cancellation.

I did catch Dixie’s mention of Tad this week and I got very excited that it could mean a return soon. Even if all we get is an occasional appearance, that is better than nothing. Thank you for posting about his upcoming appearance on Drop Dead Diva – will set the TIVO to record that for sure. I miss Tad, and Michael so much! Excited to be able to see him acting again.

Yes, Tad’s presence is needed at the very least to explain where he was that Dixie couldn’t reach him. Tad & Dixie were one of the last super couples around and I hope he can come back full time sooner than later!

I would love Tad back as long as he is not with Dixie..
That terrible mess should end, needs to end..
I could not go one more round of them..
They both need to move on and give something different..
T&D have become tiresome ..

Hope Tad would have another love time with Carla , they were great together ….

DoeR

Yeah, he did have a lot of different story lines but so did everyone else. I understand he is now established in LA (unfortunately thanks to ABC) but fans have been very vocal about wanting him to come back. A guest shot on Drop Dead Diva?? Sure, whatever. Sounds to me like his AMC fans aren’t really that important to him. And that’s sad because he was such a nice guy when I met him at the WDW Super Soap Weekend a few years back. So, IMO, if he can’t come back fulltime to be with Dixie then I would just as soon he not come back at all. And if you choose to cut me down because of my opinion go ahead, I really don’t care.

DoeR

Oh, and footnote .. he doesn’t even have an official FB page where we can leave comments for him.

Michael is very missed and needed in Pine Valley. We desperately need him and want him back! He is one of the biggest part of AMC. I will keep praying that it works out for him and he comes back, because without Michael, there is no TAD.

I adore Tad/Michael E. Knight and would LOVE for him to return to AMC, as Pine Valley is not the same without him!!!!

Jewell

Its funny, that he thinks Tad has been played out, yet Susan Lucci has been played Erica 41 years and she wants to come back, but she did movies and other shows, so that’s probably why she isn’t burnt out.

ME/Tad has done a few movies, also .

I hope Michael E. Knight (Tad) decides to come back full timel to AMC. He is my favorite character on that show, and the show definately needs Tad’s wit and wisdom. I would love to see him back with Cara again. Fights between Cara and Dixie over Tad. I would love that.

Kristie S
Kristie S

No, not with Cara. Please. They were not a good couple. No chemistry. Cara needs to be with David! They deserve each other! If Tad can’t be with Dixie, then I say put him back with Brooke again! I liked them together!

He needs to get back sooner, since AMC and OLTL will be returning to broadcast television via the OWN network.

I really miss Tad the Cad too. It has been mentioned he is away on a case. Where are his children? I think Dixie will soon have a new love interest in the doc at the hospital.

There is not now nor has there ever been anyone on AMC that makes my heart jump. MEK is just the best. I’m a 41 year fan and have never missed an episode. I am struggling to get into the new version without him. So please MEK make my dreams come true, come back.

from what Michael said, he sounds like is bored playing Tad and only wants to come back for short guest roles. I’m disappointed, but he gave us many, many years of great performances and I wish him all the happiness and luck in the world. I’d love if prospect park could give him a story that would persuade him to come bak long term. But it sounds like he will not be ready for some time for even a guest shot. I understand. Part of it is ABsleeze fault for moving AMC to the west coast and then canceling so quickly. Sounds like he’s be willing to guest sooner if he had never moved west. Michael, I love you and wish you all the happiness in the world. I miss seeing you on AMC and miss Tad.

I live in California. When I first found out that AMC was going to be moving out here, I had mixed emotions about it. As much as I would have loved maybe seeing one of the stars out here, I really didn’t want them to be here. I just had a bad feeling. I told myself, if they move the show out here, that was going to be the end of AMC. And I was right. I felt so bad for all the people that moved out here, only to lose their job a year and a half later. Maybe I’ll get lucky and see Michael out here sometime! They’re always filming things near where I live. You never know! I still miss him on AMC though. I do hope he’ll be back to stay!

Lin
Lin

I hope you get to see him, Kristie. I think it was very bad ethics to move everyone out west and then cancel the show. The economy was very bad so they probably lost money on their homes when they moved, and for those who moved back, probably lost again. I agree with you totally. If it’s the right thing for him, I hope he comes back to stay. They need to offer him an interesting storyline. I don’t think he and Dixie is it.

OF COURSE! I’m very optimistic that Tad will return and of course a big piece of him is missing considering that he has JR, AJ and Dixie in Pine Valley and of course there are the unanswered questions, what happened to Krystal and the little girls? are they with Krystal, are they with Tad or are Tad and Krystal both together and they are with them? Hey! I want to know and I’m sure everyone else does too.

dawnhaze

Michael’s Tad and Walt’s Jackson are who I want to see. I was happy to see Dimitri back too. Now bring back Tad for Dixie and Dr. Joe and Jackson to complete my wish list. Erica and Kendall could pop in every so often but I don’t really care. Tad and Dixie are my favorite all time couple.

Diane

I hope and pray that Tad (Michael Knight) will be back and I can’t wait. I think with the actors doing 5 weeks on and then 5 weeks off gives them a chance to do other things. I hope he realizes this and comes back because he is very missed. I also miss Kendall, Ryan, and Greenlee and I hope they come back too. I also hope that Oprah keeps picking up the soaps but I hope after this summer’s marathon that she buys more shows and airs them simultaneously with Hulu so those without computers or internet service can enjoy them too. Please come back MICHAEL KNIGHT.

Joan Brigham

It isn’t All My Children without Michael E. Knight. Tad was always my favorite character, and it is NOT the same without him. Not at all. Love you, Michael!! Please come back, we are tired, too, we fought like hell to get the soaps back, and then you didn’t come, I cried when you didn’t.

su0000

I do hope when hope ME/Tad returns he won’t be an old worn out man, and that he will be someone to be reckoned with and the ‘cad’ in Tad will once again be alive!!

For him to be vivid involved character once was..
And he needs to be Dixie free to grow into an awesome character befitting him.. and be a half of Dixie..

Liz

Oh I do hope he comes back! When he does, I hope that they can keep it a secret so I can really be surprised. They leaked TSJ’s return to OLTL. I found out on twitter that RKK was back as Stavros 5 minutes before he showed up. I was still glad but, it is so much better when it’s a surprise. Like when TSJ’s execution on OLTL, you REALLY thought he was dead until the next episode. Traumatic yes, but GREAT DRAMA!

Kim Wyatt

We need Tad back and Jackson and Krystal .
And Erika? Kendall? Annie? Jake and Amanda? Greenlee and Ryan ? and bring back Janet too!

They are “All My Children” too! I love them all 🙂

I feel sad for the comment Tad made about coming back for a visit someday. He is so missed by tons of people, not just me, and I miss him so much on the show. I understand his feeling about the bad treatment by ABC, but it seems like Prospect Park is really trying to make the fans happy. But they are working too much with the young teens’ storylines and they really need some more of the veteran players for us longtime fans. I have loved watching Tad the Cad since he was first on AMC. Come on down, Tad, … give it a try … lots of your acting friends are there and they need you. Wish you would put up a Michael E. Knight website for us fans to find out what you’re doing and where you’re performing. I saw you playing in that play. I was in the first row and couldn’t take my eyes off of you. I am such a fan of your acting.

AMC needs to get a good storyline going. It needs to move past the Cassandra moaning and Angie crying thing. Has there been one day that Angie hasn’t cried? I do hope Tad as well as other original cast come back. David needs to get more evil. Love the Billy Clyde story. I am now fast forwarding through AJ/Miranda and Cassandra. I like Cassandra but this story is hanging around way too long. The only thing that has my interest right now is Billie Clyde. Glad AMC is back and hoping for some great story lines from the new writers. Krystal needs to be running the coffee shop! Of the new actors, I like Cassandra and Lea. Miranda, AJ and Jane…not so much. Haven’t decided about JR.

Johnny
Johnny

I have to laugh, because you are right Kate, I love Debbi Morgan but she needs to stop crying hysterically through every scene as Angie – it’s like, I get the feeling emanating from her “this script is nothing to brag about (which it isn’t) so let me act my socks off to make it work” – she is great but some of these scenes come across rather forced.
I don’t think there is tremendous chemistry between the young actress who plays Celia and the new Petey Corland. I don’t hear anyone asking questions about them as a couple here so I don’t think anyone cares. That’s a sign from viewers that the chemistry isn’t really happening there.
Yes, Krystal needs to be there – I agree. In fact, many people from Pine Valley need to be there, but sorry to say it doesn’t sound like Michael Knight is exactly dying to hop back into Tad Martin’s shoes. I don’t know if the viewers will accept yet another re-cast at this point – in the early days, Tad was played by several young actors prior to 1983 when Michael Knight took over the role but I don’t think today another actor would be accepted as Tad Martin.

Kate
Kate

I had forgotten about Celia. We haven’t seen her for awhile. Colby and Pete I liked until the sex scene. I fast forward them unless they are talking to David. These shows are becoming 5 minute shows for me because I fast forward through a lot. I am keeping my fingers crossed that more vets return and the new writers turn things around.

Johnny
Johnny

Yes, and when I watch the “More” Show, they made it appear that many people enjoyed the unnecessary sex scene between Colby and Petey. The truth of the matter is, most fans OBJECTED to it – but they didn’t say that. I found it personally, not needed – stronger writing is needed, not a hot sex scene with groaning and moaning. I mean, we get it, we know Colby is now being portrayed as a sexy trampy get outa my way bitch kind of gal, we have imagination, they could show her kissing Pete and do a fade out, we know how it goes, we don’t need a “blow by blow” depiction, pun intended. As for Celia, pretty gal, cute personality but not the most memorable character to walk through Pine Valley.

Carole

I want to see Tad back and I would also like to see Janet and Marion, too. These characters added humor to the show.

Of course Michael Knight (Tad) is sorely missed. He, Erica & Jackson were such a huge part of the old show that it’s not the same without them. Hope to see him back soon!

Oh my gosh, yes, he is certainly missed. And I remember his lovely speech in the fareweill toast. Sooner or later, if at all possible, they all return home to Pine Valley.
I, for one. will be ready. He could move in with Opal, because Dixie might be crushing on Billy Clyde. Hahahaaa. All My Children has brought so much joy!

Nicole
Nicole

I miss him as tad Martin and would love for him to come back, I know his story lines have seen just about everything but with the new writers I am sure they can provide even better story lines for him especially with billy Clyde so if he comes back (which I really want) then yay! If not I wish him all the best!

Let me say this…. Just as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west; Tad Martin will return. His character is an integeral part of All My Children. I am 100% possitive we will be seeing him one day. 🙂

Any one who is an AMC fan has to miss TAD. Like he said he was on for 20 years straight and was a big part of the show. I think he was truly the HEART of the show. Hurry back Michael….you are missed.

Sheryl

I Can’t Wait for Tad to come back, then hopefully Erica will join him, then Kendall and Ryan, Greenlee too? Heck, I want them all back!! Glad to see Dimitri after soooo long, and hopefully Adam will return again. I’m not really thrilled with AJ’s and Miranda’s acting, but give them time, they may grow on me. The new JR and Pete are okay, but Colby is too full of herself. Other than that, Jesse and Angie, Zach, Opal, David, Dixie, Dr Joe, Brooke, and Bianca, Griff (where did he go?)and Cara..even Billy Clyde, are all as great as ever, and I’m so glad to see them all back on my show!!!

I miss Michael so much. He was the reason I watched AMC. I hope he does come back. It’s just not the same without him. Please, please, please Michael! Come back to AMC and stay. You are missed so much. The show just isn’t the same without you!

SUSAN

Would love, love, love for Michael E. Knight to come back and play Tad. Wouldn’t it be great if he came back and continued his living arrangements with Cara, and have Dixie be upset that he was feeling love towards Cara? I would love it. Either way, when he comes back, I hope he loves it so much, he decides to stay. We need more of the main core characters back for all the fans who have watched them for so many years. I can hardly wait till I see Michael/Tad back on AMC. Yea!

Sue
Sue

I’ve been a loyal fan since the mid ’70’s and I AM SO HAPPY to have more AMC, even in this mini-version. However, the show is definitely NOT the same without Michael E. Knight’s “Tad”. Not only is he the cutest guy, but he & Cady McClain/Dixie are the best and belong together. Plus, I miss his humorous quips. Also, Erica needs to return, at least for a visit, ASAP, to keep everything grounded and give Brooke a piece of her mind. Glad to hear Opal mention her “bestest buddy.” BUT WHERE IS JACK??? He is my 2nd favorite guy and I miss him a lot. Zach is amazing and so hot, but he REALLY needs Kendall, as does Miranda. Alicia Minshew should come and rule the show!
SO LOVE, LOVE, LOVE ANGIE, JESSE and DAVID. They are pros and just great with each other!!

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.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

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”

Meanwhile, Riegel sent out a series of tweets: “Hooo boy…cat’s out of the bag! Fans, please don’t judge our show based on these leaked videos!! The effects are going to knock your socks off. And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

Now below, check out the Wild Cards “leaked footage” and let us know if you think of the …. um … drama! Comment below.  And one more thing … Happy April Fool’s!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
