On-Air On-Soaps couldn’t let the year come to a close without taking a look back at the truly worst year the genre has ever faced and endured!

From horrible storylines, ridiculous individual moments, annoying characters and terrible judgment calls by head writers, producers, networks, and wannabes, our Top 28 choices comprise the many, many missteps of the soap year.  2011 was unique in that for the first time there was to be more dreadful behind-the-scenes drama than on the shows themselves, and believe you me, they are taken into account in our countdown!

So to remind us all of what we endured on screen, and off screen, we present to you our Top 28 image countdown. These moments had us scratching our heads, throwing more things than usual at our TV’s and computer screens, and in our opinion, showed viewers just some bad soap opera.

We hope you enjoy, get mad, and share a laugh, and of course, we welcome your thoughts on if you agree with our picks, or may have some more of your own to add to the mix.

View the Worst Moments of 2011 countdown gallery after the jump!

Michael, what a hoot! You are spot on with the worst happening on soaps this year. Most of these people and storylines have had no purpose, no reason to even be there let alone to even speak. Loved the pictures You are great and entertaining with your pics…

So agree:Huge mistake letting go of Nadia Bjiorlin and Crystal Chappell .Both amazing actresses.And Chleo become a prostitue is the worst story ever.So out of character and so unfair to Chloe and Nadia fans

You forgot the moment when Anne Sweeney announced that ABC Daytime would be no more and renamed “Time Square Studios”. That was a big pisser for me.

I was kind of hoping this list would be more about terrible storylines rather than soap politics off the set.

You named it! Though a lot of Days Storylines were a hot mess. Even though Carly’s drug story started off AMAZING, it ended horrible. Carly started off losing Bo as a reason of her addiction, plus her history with Larry and then turned it into an obsession with Daniel and almost ruined a great friendship with her and Jen. Then to go to Rehab just to leave Salem? Plus Viv goes to Bollywood? REALLY?! It left us all empty and unsatisfied. Plus us fans didn’t even get a proper goodbye with Bo and Carly. Such a slap in the face… Read more »

No thanks…Danloe reached the point of no return with Daniel’s reaction to Chloe’s suicide attempt:He couldn’t care if she lived or died.There is no excuse for that.No matter how angry,hurt ,upset,you are at the person you claim to love more than life itself, when that person is about to die,your true feelings appear.And Daniel’s did: He couldn’t care less if she lived or died.No Danloe ever again.Bring back Chloe,have her reconnect with Brady,rediscover each other and fall in love again slowly,have them go back to their passion,Singing, have a child together,…There is so much to write for this couple.But keep… Read more »

So the worst moment for days was firing Braun, Chappell, and Bjorlin? Doubtful. How about in Taylors case DOOL tried fixing things with Natalia versus miscasting braun which made an awful storyline worse. The issue was never the actress, it was the character and story. Chappell good riddance. Her behavior on twitter with Branco condoning his tirade against Kristian Alphonzo that got him fired was disgraceful. Carlys return was awful anyway. And Chloe, Nadia is a terrible actress but I do like her and agree Higley did her wrong. But Chloe is a character that needed a break. Corday damned… Read more »

Naida is an AMAZING actress and DAYS failwed to use her talents.In 4 years,since her return in 2007,she ahd VERY LITTLE to work with:The HP,PPD,Chloe, losing her baby.These are the only “meaty” material she got in 4 years and BOY did she rock them.She totally delivered just like she’s rocking VENCIE THE SERIES now,since 3 seasons…HUGE mistake letting go such gorgeous and wondeful talent and a fan favorite with 4 huge fanbases(Chloe) from 1999.

SPOT ON. I just about lost my breakfast having to see that ugly mug (Frons) on the last slide. SO glad he’s been axed; too bad it wasn’t this time LAST year!

Oh Michael you are too nice with Days..ALL the storylines were AWFUL, contrived and boring except few exceptions at the very end of the year (Johnny missing, Ejami sexual encounter/grieving, Will/Marlena new relationship with Will character development..and that is not disgusting Highley..). But on top of the awful Days 2011 i would add the RoboRafe horrible story (doppelganger with a dull character like Rafe at the front center..au secour !!!) and the uber boring and cheesy Nicole/Ej/Taylor triangle (JS has no chemistry with any of these actresses, painful to watch..well i did not watch for the most part, what i… Read more »

Nice to see that someone else hated everything I hated about “Y & R” this year – bad casting, incoherent stories and a nearly six-month “whodunit” that left NOT ONE viewer on the edge of their seat – just bored to tears.

2011 saw the exit of Dena Higley from DAYS – can Maria Arena Bell and her co-hacks be next??

That year, 2011, was pretty bad for DOOL. EJaylor was unwatchable, as well as that disgusting EJami grief sex. EJole’s romance was cute, so were Safe and Dannifer. I hated watching the Imposter Rafe storyline as well. Sad to see Chloe and Carly destroyed just for Daniel. Did not like Jack coming back to split up Dannifer, only barely to get any screentime. Hated the whole thing with Melanie stealing Chad from Abby (well, Chelanie were OK), only for Abby to have a crush on Austin. Vivian’s departure was terrible too, but I was glad to see Taylor leave.

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
