MORE All My Children and MORE One Life to Live debuted on Friday on Hulu, which gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the backstage production, in-depth interviews with the series stars and creative teams, and also added into the mix are some lifestyle segments.  In the case of MORE All My Children, it was a relationship expert telling us how to spice up our sex lives with our significant others!

Hosted by Leslie Miller, MORE All My Children’s focus for it’s premiere episode was an interview with Vincent Irizarry (David), Denyse Tontz  (Miranda) and AMC’s executive producer, Ginger Smith!  From discussing the current stories of David Hayward’s return to Pine Valley, the secret that Cara is holding about their baby, and what will happen between JR and David, Vincent teased the audience well, without divulging much of anything.

Denyse Tontz talked about Miranda being “friends with no benefits” with AJ Chandler played by Eric Nelsen, and playing the key role of Bianca Montgomery who is the next gen Kane woman!

Denyse couldn’t really explain the inappropriate relationship with AJ. Always fun listening to Vincent. I think I would rather have another episode. I doubt I will watch the recaps. Because the episodes are so short I will probably just watch them all together over the weekend. With the exception of Miranda, loving all the characters. It is not that I don’t like Denyse, I just don’t like the character. Also, there is too much cursing. Cursing is appropriate sometimes but too much gets to be distracting to the story. AMC has always been a classy soap….please don’t lose that. Love my AMC! Great job PP and Agnes Nixon.

All interesting however when I went to Hulu to get lost in my stories I was pretty disappointed that they opted for this discussion time. Hope this is not going to happen every Friday.

It is going to happen every Friday (for now). I wonder if they will change it later on when the shows start to do really well and they can afford to tape extra shows.

How is the relationship between Miranda & A. J. Inappropriate? They were born on the same day, grew up together, and are close.

read this wrong what did I think of the recap I liked it. I like seeing the actors. Makes me see the characters differently and not dislike them as much makes them more human. I am not a David fan, but I did watch GL when Lujack came on, played by VI.

I think the More recaps & interview shows of AMC & OLTL are interesting. I like to see behind the scenes of our favourite shows. I like the interactive aspect of it, too.

I think they should combine both more eps & turn it in to a soap talk show where the host goes behind the scenes of both shows & have 3 actors form each show come on & take about the shows & also have a spot in the show where they tell what else the actors are doing & the show will have fans from both show & there will be a Q&A sport & at the end gave a sneak peek of the next week shows .

I liked the recap show until they got to the lifestyle segment. I would much rather have longer interviews and Q&As with the cast and crew as well as a more in-depth recap. It would be nice to see how the actors feel about the situations their characters are in for that week.

I think the relationship advice is idiotic – sorry, that’s my opinion. If they want to interview the actors on Friday and ask them what they think of their characters that is fine, and some “behind the scenes” is all right, but aside from that I like the storylines and I don’t need to be inter-active. If they want to do a Friday re-cap that’s fine, I guess, but I don’t need relationship advice thrown at me and I don’t need to see where you can buy a bathing suit. I just want to see the show(s). I feel very strongly that every Friday of this kind of thing will get old really fast with the viewers.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

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.

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”
