I hope both OLTL and AMC continue but ive already lost interest in both shows. Great characters, nice sets and the music is ok but for me they just havent renewed my interest. I plan to watch a few more episodes of OLTL and ill take a peak at AMC to see Billy Clyde again but thatll be it for me! Just not interested in a serial that cares more about how edgier it can be with the love scenes and all the cursing instead of writing compelling drama! OLTL has its good moments but there just isnt enough to… Read more »

I’m happy I don’t have to watch GH anymore now that my shows are back. The only reason i watched it was for the oltl characters. I love that these shows are edgier and i think AMC is better that it’s been in years. The writing and acting on that show is fantastic and the cast of oltl is awesome.

Glad the soaps are back on air, but I don’t watch them. Perhaps I will soon. I have no interest in giving my ratings to DOOL right now. Now THAT is terrible writing!

I agree. DAYS is just a mess right now. Storylines go nowhere, characters make no sense, there is no one to root for. Someone hire Lorraine Broderick as HEAD Writer…she will fix it.

I am not digging AMC at all at this time. It is so apparent that they are directing that show towards 20’s/30’s something and since I’ve been there and done that I don’t see any reason to live vicariously through a soap. I gave it 8 eppie’s and now I am done. OLTL I will stick with as long as Trevor St. John is on the canvas but as soon as he is gone which I believe will be next week I’ll be done watching until he returns. I am not interested in tnb for the up tenth time the… Read more »

What is wrong with them trying to reach new viewers? If we want the shows around for more decades they need new generations of viewers. And i don’t care what you say AMC is off the chain right now!

Ron…there’s nothing wroing with trying to reach new viewers as long as you don’t turn off and discard the original, loyal ones who fought to get these shows back. There are a lot of people in all age groups who like the revived shows…but at the same time there is a sizeable amount who don’t. Considering that the ones who don’t were all looking forward to the return…there is obviously something wrong that is alienating so many of us. Now it’s a matter of whether PP cares and makes changes…or if their ratings are so great that they could care… Read more »

I’m see nothing but wanna be adults who are actually spoiled rotten brats thinking they can make it out in the world that don’t have clue. IMO Tea should have toss Dani out on her a%% the day she got home and totally cut her off of any financial funds which is something I hope she does now that the ungrateful little brat has left. But stupidly Todd is there buying his way into the brat’s life as well as Jack. I didn’t allow my children to act as spoiled rotten brats and I don’t enjoy watching spoiled rotten ungrateful… Read more »

OLTL I will stick with as long as Trevor St. John is on the canvas but as soon as he is gone which I believe will be next week I’ll be done watching until he returns.

That is if he does returns in some point in time. However I do believe Trevor St. John’s talent is way above a online soap opera but respect he did revive his character to wrap up lose ends. Kudos to Tevor St. John.

So happy to have OLTL back & especially to have Roger Howarth back as Todd in his own habitat. The 1/2 format really works & the pacing has been great so far. No more spending 6 months waiting for significant story movement or payoff. Am interested in where story can go creatively when out from under network dictates. Love the smallish cast which allows focus. Keep Roger Howarth as Todd please! He is still such a linchpin.

I find it interesting that some mature viewers aren’t completely happy with the new direction of the show. I’ve watched OLTL since the first episode in 1968. Yes, I’m 60+ and I can tell you the OLTL we saw before the cancellation was NOT the same as in 1968. It has grown. Story lines and characters have grown, changed and developed over the past 45 years. But, the focus has always been and remains human interactions. Some of those humans are families and some are friends and associates who also live in the town. I see the current show as… Read more »

I am so happy AMC/OLTL are back and better than ever. The writing is superb and better than ever. I can’t wait until the next day to watch it and never losing interest. The stories are fast past and entertaining. Love Vickie, Natalie, Blair and Todd. On the other hand, losing interest in GH and plan on NOT watching it come Monday and thereafter because of the pickle Lila/Eddie garbage and the Chew crap. I do not watch anything else on this channel so I guess it is Bye Bye ABC

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
