Anything with Adam(Y&R) torturing Ashley, including covering up her miscarriage,etc. makes me want to barf…. the stealing of Sharon’s baby after he delivered it is the ugliest moment I have seen in a long time. Oh, yes ,there are many more..UGH…

That’s some list. Although I feel you could have used AMC’s entire year for that list, lol. Pratt’s writing definitely should have been higher, maybe even #1.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that 2010’s list is harder to write meaning 1) that soaps are much better next year and 2) that Agnes Nixon and co. can get AMC back on track.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Ethan turning out to be Luke’s son (instead of Robert’s) was definitely the worst for GH. It spit on two supercouples (Luke & Laura and Robert & Holly) and a great friendship (Luke & Robert). No wonder GH is doing so poorly in the ratings. GH has no respect for history.

ITA Ethan being Luke’s son instead of Robert and Holly as he should had been was the absolute worst use of history.Whoever dumb idea it was to make him Luke’s by spitting all over the king and queen of all daytime couples history Luke and Laura,and GH most romantic couple and love story Robert/Holly Scorpio shouldn’t be allow to give anymore idea better yet keep that person away from any storylines idea that person is lclearly lacking in the creativity dept.

And to think the #1 worst got me back into soap land this year after being away since ’96. The twins sl on ATWT sounded intriguing since they’d be interacting with my fave characters (Luke and Noah). It wasn’t that bad but oh, well, I still must thank them for getting me hooked on ATWT, not to mention other soaps (Y&R, AMC, OLTL). Gosh, I’d missed soaps!

Ethan being Luke’s son was the worst moment on GH this year. It was completely unbelievable and a mess of a story. Luke cheated on Laura with Holly? and the time line was so fuzzy it’s impossible to even figure out when it was supposed to happen because it didn’t fit with GH’s history. It trampled over Luke and Laura and Robert and Holly and there was no payoff. Ethan as a Spencer is boring. As a Scorpio- there was so much more potential. No wonder cancelled soaps have higher ratings than GH.

Anything concerning the Jason & Sam reunion. Totally unbelievable and contrived…they’re chemistry-free birth control for the soul…

Couldn’t agree MORE. THAT was the absolute WORST Story line of the year and unbelievable that the crap is still going on. Nasty is what that is.

Leaving Jeffrey out chasing Edmund while grieving widow Reva turns to Josh at the Lighthouse, with Jeffrey’s little boy in tow, has Ellen Wheelers messy fingerprints all over it. What a totally disappointing and contrived ending to one of the gems in daytime, Guiding Light. I’m not surprised that Ellen nor Jeffrey’s fate made the worst list because THEY DESERVED TO BE THERE! Talk about out of touch with the fans.

My problem is with Ashley Jones on B&B. She is a no-talent wannabe actress that brings down every other character she is paired with. Just how many “Worst” categories can she be elected to before DumbBell gets it into his head to be rid of her? A totally unsavory character in every way.

While I like AJ, I find Bridget to be the most useless character on the BB. The Madame X line had to be the dumbest of last year. And to make it worse, in doing that SL to reunite the WORSE couple of 2005, 2006 and 2008, Nick and Bridget, they dumbed down the character of Nick to do it. I wish Bell would take Nick out of the kiddie pool and put him back with the grown-ups and put Bridget with a more age appropriate man like Owen, so they would not have to do these dumb SL’s in order to try and “put them across”.

James has Brooke and Taylor MUDWRESTLE, give each other massages–while he seemed to leer watching them. This was supposed to make them friends to make Ridge’s life easier. It was like some guy’s sick fantasy.

I whole-heartedly agree on all Bold misses of last year.I think you were too kind to Bells mess of a (once) good show.The biggest fiasco is that Nick Marone is still with Bridget Forrester.Jack Wagner is so underused and stuck in the kiddie pool with Ashley Jones,an actress who´s character Bridget belongs with the younger set,and at Forrester Creations,not Jackie M “designing”, it´s not even funny.Other embarassing “storylines” were the Donna&Pam frienship complete with having them make a fool of themselves on a game show and Jack Wagner was further humilitated at same game show in a “special” episode with a less than skilled actress at his side.My hopes for B&B in 2010 is that Nick Marone once again is front-and-center and in an adult storyline,prefrebly with powerhouse actress Sarah Brown and her Sandy character.Any adult character in Nicks storyline would be perfered acctually,so he no longer have to share screen with his former (immature)step daguhter,Bridget Forrester.Ever.

Ethan as Luke’s son was just a horrible, horrible decision. He was meant to be Robert and Holly’s and that would’ve been brilliant and it would’ve fit perfectly into the show’s already established history. Had they gone with Robert and Holly as the parents I have no doubt this would’ve been one of the best plot points of 2009. Instead they made the totally wrong choice and every magazine and website has voted it amongst the worst things of 2009. Guess what, GH—it’s never too late to fix your mistake ! Change Ethan’s paternity and make things right.

I actually loved the Zac and Zoe storyline! I don’t watch anything besides ATWT so I can’t really say anything about the other moments, but thw twins couldn’t have been the worse! I thought their interaction was great, also with Luke and Noah..Adam suddenly disappearing was much worse if you’re asking me..

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.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

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…)
