Erica Kane’s new man arrives on the scene on the May 24th episode of All My Children.  That is when Michael Nouri debuts in the newly created role  of Caleb McGraw, a cranky mountain man whose home is destroyed when Erica’s private plane crashes into it!  The fun begins when Erica, ever the diva, is stranded in the woods with this crusty guy. But is he really a moutain man?  I mean, something had to happen that he ended up living isolated in the woods, right?  TV Guide Magazine spoke with Nouri on what fans get expect from this new romantic entaglement for La Lucci, and what could be behind Caleb’s life in the woods!  Here are some excerpts below!

Nouri on why the world is a sucker for hate at first sight relationships:  “Susan Lucci, and I feel the same way. It’s really classic Hollywood, isn’t it? It’s a very Capra-esque set-up. Caleb is a guy who left civilization to live alone on a mountain with his dog, his guitar and his books. Erica represents everything he loathes and he’ll do anything he can to get rid of her, including trying to gross her out. The challenge is to keep the tension going for as long as possible because as soon as there’s a resolution, as soon as we deliver what the audience is expecting, it’s not as fun anymore. I think it’ll also take a while to find out what drove Caleb to be a recluse. The writers haven’t shared it with me yet.”

Nouri on returning to daytime and working in show business: “It’s very difficult making a living in this business. You can be a snob or you can take care of your financial responsibilities. [Laughs] My reality is determined by the price of gas! I’m very grateful for the career I’ve had and the opportunities that have come my way, and I’m delighted to be on AMC playing a wonderful character and working with terrific people. Susan is such a sweetheart. A great example of grace and professionalism and bonhomie. And I’m so glad I have her as my partner in this job. I’m a very happy camper.”

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.

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…)
