Rachael Ray very excited about replacements for OLTL & AMC!



Looks like syndicated talk show host and cooking expert, Rachael Ray, is the only person in America excited right now about the new replacement series for the just canned, One Life to Live and All My Children!

As announced this past Thursday by ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons, AMC’s replacement is the cooking show, The Chew! And, OLTL’s replacement show is a makevoer show, The Revolution. Ray was seemingly ectastic to have these concepts in the daytime mix.  Rachael stated to, “I think it’s exciting. My good friend Mario Batali and Michael Symon are going to be part of The Chew and I’m thrilled to see them join the roster.”

Ray also commented that now that Regis and Oprah will be off the daytime landscape as well,  things are forever changed.  “I will miss Regis, of course, but I will be excited to see Kelly Ripa with her new partner in 2012  I’m a big fan of Anderson Cooper, and he’s coming to daytime. I’m a big fan of Katie Couric, and she may be coming to daytime. Those will be fantastic afternoon shows, but I’m interested to see who joins up in the A.M. I always say, ‘The more, the merrier’. The cable and syndication landscapes are blurred, and I think there are more than enough viewers and customers out there for everybody. I’m really excited to see a lot of the new shows.”

Wow Rachael, you are a bit out of synch with the rest of us! How many more cooking and makeover shows do we all need on network television?

Well I can add her to shows I will boycott-along with ABC primetime,news etc. I will watch the soaps until the last day they are on.

So will i What an ass!


Well, Rachael…your show (and magazine, and cookware!!) just went on my boycott list!!

Me too .. I can easily boycott her show ,, here her show plays opposite OLTL ,,, I guess she thinks people will start watching her instead. it won’t be me …

well I guess she is out too!!!

Mrs perfect Rachel Ray isnt all that perfect anyways wasnt it in the news awhile back that her marriage is in the shams and besides that Im pretty sure she steals her recipes from others and calls them her own! I cant stand people like her that thinks only of herself and her viewers. What about the viewers of the soaps? maybe she hates the soaps because she tried out for them and couldnt get a role because her acting SUCKS! I wont watch her show havent ever! She will lose alot of viewers because shes that much of an idiot! BOYCOTT this one too! Oh I think I know why she is agreeing with Frons because she is probably sleeping with him! Thats also probably why her show is still on the air too! BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT!

I always watched Rachel Ray’s show, now I will never watch her again in anything ever! ABC will see when it starts losing viewers, and Ms. Ray’s new show will also be boycotted, hopefully off the air!!

She’s a big moron is what she is. I hope she knows she just alienated ALOT of people…. I don’t watch her show either and don’t know anyone who does. I am frankly surprised she’s been on the air this long but I guess since her programming isn’t quality and that probably only have to pay her in those cooking supplies that she’s a cheap get. It would serve her right if The Chew chewed her on out of daytime too.

LOL, I totally agree. She’s so annoying with her cheesy fake smile.

Of course she is on the air because Oprah got her started just like she got so many other shows started. I never watched her show just read an article that she is too selfish to ever have a child and she is great with that. Than an article of her gaining like 50 pounds in a short period of time. That is about it other than that she is mean for being happy all those people that got laid off and all their fans. I can’t wait to see her ratings drop!!!!!!! BYE BYE

u know what Rachel ray needs to be canceled and when this is all said and done she will be on the list.. i am so pissed off…
we need some of these soap stars to use their contacts discretely to help us get some serious coverage. If protest marches and boycotts of Disney and abc and talks of down stocks make national coverage then we will win… but they are sitting on their thumbs..

Leah, the Protest and Boycott dates have been released. I am just in this for Brian Frons’ head. He was after our shows since he came on ABC and it is time he sits on the shorter end of the stick for once. Here is the Info Website for the Actions… it doesn’t matter where you are… let your voice be heard. Even if it just means the feathers are ruffled, it is the least we can do. Soon we will have no soaps and no Soapsites, no Messageboards and no real form of Entertainment. There is no way we are going down, they killed too many soaps already.. it is time to stop the madness!

Here the Addy:

Well, two of her friends got jobs I guess that’s why she’s so happy. Forget the hundreds out of their jobs.

Does she have a financial interest in these?

Rachael Ray has been removed from my Tivo. Will never watch her again.

Very disappointed in Rachael Ray’s comments. How many people are losing their jobs not just actors, writers, the crew members, and the soap magazines employees? But its great news because her friend got the new show, wow how lame Rachael. Add my name to the list of people who will now boycott her show as well as her good friend show The Chew.

Well , I guess I won’t be watching her anymore either. Biggest fake around.

How insensitive!

Patti, Skyla and Leah… I agree with all of you, lets get rid of Rachel Ray and BRING BACK ROSIE!!! And keep AMC and OLTL. I never watch RR anyway but she could use a SELF-HELP show to watch … on another channel!

Won’t be watching ANY of her shows on ABC or The Food Network EVER again that’s for sure!!! Way to show how insensitive you are and that you have zero compassion or empathy for the hundreds and hundreds of people who are about to loose their jobs and the millions of fans who are loosing shows they’ve watched for decades!!!!! Rachael Ray is shown on ABC before The View in my area and I rarely if ever watch it. Rarely has now turned into NEVER!!!!!!!

Rachael Ray loves to name drop all the celebs she knows. She only cares about the big names. She was recently on Joy Behars show and talked about Celebs who are on her show that surprised her were not very cool in person. They seem all nice and perky but in person they suck… well guess what Rach, in person you suck too, unless of course your name is JLo, or Gweneth, or any other big star that you think you fit in with.. . I know I have actually seen you in person. I am tired of overweight, bloated chefs or in your case Cooks – telling me how to eat healthy. So you can bet I am excited that my soaps are canceled to watch a very bloated Mario Batalli telling me what is healthy for me to eat… One thing I do hope – that THE CHEW beats the RR show in every market and your rude ass goes back to cable where you belong. You self centered media Whore!! Soap Fan BOYCOTT THIS BITCH and Impeach FRONZ for ruining ABC DAYTIME!

Boycott Rachel Ray, Mario Batali, Tim Gunn, ABC, Disney, Disneyland, Disneyworld, send bars of soap to Brian Fron and Anne Sweeney. People are getting tired of reality shows and afternoon talk shows. With the economy the way it is now, people need something they can watch and escape to and AMC and OLTL are it.

HEY RACH!! You hear that sound…??? That is the sound of ALL the SOAPFANS turning off your Crappy show!!!


She is a total miscreant whose show should be canned…look at her ratings…no one watches her…Julia Child, girlfriend, she’s not…PLEEEEEEASE.

wow i used to like her but after that comment im not so sure now..i mean seriously rachel there is gonna be over 600 people out of work here,how happy can you really be….

one word can say it all….”Schadenfreude”

It is very sad that Rachel Ray has decided to completely ignore the millions of fans of the soap operas. Let’s put aside the fact that many of us are fighting to keep our beloved soaps. Her remarks are callous and uncaring for those of us in mourning, not to mention the 600+ people who are loosing their jobs. She has lost a ton of viewers, and her ratings will reflect this. Well, I wish that they would reflect this but let’s face it the ratings system is really flawed. The fate of every show on the air rests with just a few thousand people, not the millions who really watch.

What a shame. How would she feel if she was loosing her job, or how how would she feel if her show was cancelled? She’s set with her she is still on foodnetwork. I am pissed. Forget ABC…. without All My Children no daytime tv for this gal!!!

Don’t even get me started on Rachel Ray! lol

I guess Rachael Ray was not a soap fan.Only a true fan can feel so devastated to lose a soap of many years.These were not my soaps but ATWT was and i’m still in mourning for that show.I only hope if these shows do go off the writers and TPTB will have some respect for the loyal fans and give some sort of decent ending to them.After what was done to ATWT fans and the horrible ending we were given i would never want my fellow soap fans to go through the same.i hope some miracle happens and your soaps are saved.Good luck to all AMC and OLTL fans!

I used to watch her show, but I found it too boring. She just does not come off as being sincere with her guests. In regards to her insensitive comment, just remember what goes around comes around.

I cannot stand RR…anyone who can’t say extra virgin olive oil and had to make up her own acronym is a doofus!!
I’d like to fry her ass in EVOO…hope her show is the next to go. We already have the Food Network and the Cooking channel…let’s not have more food shows invade the other channels!!

withe the cancellation of the soaps people may watch new shows instead of hers?
What goes up goes down shes a great girl but not even a cheif in cooking food?
well i hope Oprah takes sopa over and boost her tv network OWN

RR: They need to give her an I.Q. test… A maker of grilled cheese sandwichs doth not a talkshow host make! WHO, PRAY TELL, WHICH OTHER NETWORK GENIUS LET HER OUT OF THE KITCHEN? SHE DOESN’T COOK ANYMORE, NOW SHE’S A PROFESSIONAL YENTA – WITH BOTH FEET — IN HER MOUTH! Me and mine have watched our last RR show, purchased our last RR cookbook, and that goes for obese Mario, too and his restaurants and product lines! And, for anyone else, who attempts to “replace” OR CONDONE SUCH, the irreplaceable masterpiece of Daytime, OLTL – and its wonderful company of writers and actors/actresses, producers, director, etc, they are consummate professionals one and all producing entertaining programming on contemporary socially responsible themes. The last thing American audiences need today, is another food show and another weight reduction campaign a la”lifetime issues” program with guest “experts.” [talk about mixed messages!] Please. “Chew” on this “Revolution”, ABC management (since obviously leadership is wanting. there..duh). We are going after YOUR corporate sponsors next – one and all! And Karma, RR, Mario, Frons, Disney/ABC Television ad agency et al. is a real bitch! You will wish – that you had – more than one life to live — when OLTL fans get done with you! My wife and I have watched OLTL, religiously, for two decades now…

And her brains are in what part of her anatomy?

It would have been nice had she said ‘too bad about the soaps – I’m really sad about that but looking forward to the food shows’ or whatever. But really it was a very stupid thing for her to say.

I always found her to be insincere, phony anyway, and this just confirms it for me. Funny thing is her stylist/friend husband is one of the people/actors losing his job on AMC. I guess one friends gain is another ones lost. She is a loser and I am boycotting anything on ABC daytime after OLTL goes off the air. So does my tv channel & DVR machine.

what an insensitive person!!

I never watched her anyway! Learned all my cooking from my mama! Rachel Ray ,you are a very mean person for not caring about all the ppl that this will effect! Who the hell is Mario Batali anyway?????

Rachel Ray’s food tastes like poop. Her recipes are lackluster, and so is she. Ina Garten, despite the negative press she’s received lately, is a good chef/cook. Her comments about my BELOVED One Life to Live aside, she sucks… BADLY.

Well, Rachel, I have watched your show everyday, subscribe to your magazine, but that is all over now! Just what we need another show about food and what we are suppose to eat and what we are not. I won’t be watching you AND I WON”T BE WATCHING ABC IF THEY TAKE MY SOAPS OFF THE AIR. Maybe you will get cancelled real soon!

Who the Hell cares what Rachel Ray thinks??? Here’s what I say to your opinion, lady, YUCK-O!!!

And I will be very happy when your show is cancelled. I will not be watching it! How mean of you to say that about 2 soaps that so many people love to watch!

I wonder how her “favorite gal pal Gretchen” feels about these comments in light of the fact that an AMC actor is the father o her child. Way to support your friends there Rach.

Wow, I knew there was a reason I just couldn’t warm up to her, what a horrible, insensitive thing to say, not only for the soap fans that are devestated, but for all the cast and crew and their families that are losing their livelyhood…unlucky for her we are all already boycotting ABC shows except the soaps. I am going to her website and let her know how I feel or find some contact info…

Figures another fat hobag preaching on eating healthy is excited another fat butt is getting a new chew…PULEAZEEEE….I never liked her anyway!!!

She is a joke. She will not have any longevity like our soaps. Hopefully, word will get out to boycott her. I personally don’t care for cooking shows. I prefer scripted television. She is also very annoying so hopefully she will be cancelled very soon.

How can she be so sensitive?” Hurrah for me and the hell for them. My friends are coming on now.” Well guess what , you just lost alot of viewers for your cruel remark. Another show to boycott.

How would you feel if that was said about one of your shows. They was excited it was cancelled and will love the show that takes it place. Is that what you say to the people who worked on All My Children and One Life To Live. Your “friend” Gretchen that father of her child works on All My Children are you excited he will loose his job?

SHE COOKS ??????

wow what a loser !just sayin

How would you feel Rachel if your SHOW was cancelled? Would you be excited? From a Avid Faithful Fan of AMC & OLTL .

I can’t stand her. I tried to watch her show a couple of times, but her phony smile, name-dropping, and voice made my skin crawl. Rachel, honey, no one cares what you think.

How can you be excited about so many people loosing their jobs? I thought you would remember how it was before you got all that you have now. There is a lot of people like me who love to watch their soaps during the week. I am not skinny myself, but I do not need a over weight person tell me how to eat healthy. When you can see that do not follow their own advice!

She’s a has been. I have never supported her.

Rachel Ray is dumps for saying that. Shame on her. She has had La Lucci on her show before too….. she is clueless. Stick to cracking eggs.

Well i use to like her but i will NOT watch her show anymore..bye bye Rachel Ray

Rachel Ray got Guiding Light’s old sets. I’ve been boycotting her for a while now. This will only add to it.

Rachel WHO?

Rachel Ray is jealous of Gretta Monahan thats why she is not supporting AMC because Gretta is with Ricky Paul Goldin.

She is just thinking of herself thats all. Maybe she should think about losing weight instead of cooking and eating so much. Why should she care whether or not the
soaps go off. She doesn’t care if people on there lose their jobs. I’m very upset about all this and I would never ever watch her dumb cooking show in a million years. Boo to you.

Billy Miller Memorial Scholarship Endowment Created at His Alma Mater to Help Others ‘Realize Their Dreams’

Two months since three-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Billy Miller passed away, the beloved All My Children (ex-Richie), General Hospital (ex-Jason/Drew) and The Young and the Restless (ex-Billy) star, will now have a permanent scholarship endowment in his honor at the University of Texas at Austin which was Miller’s alma mater.

Through the scholarship, it will be able to help radio/television and film undergraduate students with financial need. Billy’s family and friends have established this permanent scholarship in his memory, naming it the William Jon Miller II “Billy Miller” Memorial Scholarship. They hope the endowment will be a legacy to his life and love of acting.

Before becoming soap-famous, Billy graduated from the the university’s department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) at the Moody College of Communication. On its official website, they shared the news of this special memorial scholarship and how Miller died at the age of 43 after surrendering his life to bipolar depression, which he struggled with his whole life.

Megan Hubbell, Billy’s sister, expressed, “We want something positive to be held in his name in perpetuity through the University he loved. He would be honored to know that even in death, he can help someone else realize their dreams.”

She added how she hoped her immensely talented brother will be remembered: “I hope BJ (as Billy was known by to his friends and family) is remembered for the kind-hearted, silly, funny, goofy, generous, beautiful soul that he was His megawatt smile, deep belly laugh and gorgeous mug were gifts on screen, but his true self was a bright light that will be carried with us forever.”

Photo: JPI

According to Miller’s family, Billy had his picks of schools and UT was his first choice. When he first came to the university, Billy started in the zoology program before switching to radio-television-film, where he felt he belonged. Miller was one of just 20 students at the time accepted into the department’s prestigious production-sequence program.

“BJ was extremely proud to be a Texas Longhorn and always remembered his time there fondly,” Hubbell said. “The time he spent at UT allowed him the space to explore who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish.”

In honoring her brother’s work and strength to persevere in the often heartbreaking world of entertainment, Megan related: “I always admired the guts it took to go after a dream in Hollywood that so many people tried to discourage. He heard, ‘You’ll never make it’ more times than I care to count, but he used those comments as fuel and said, ‘Watch me.’”

Miller’s roles went far beyond those on daytime soap operas, as throughout his career he played major parts in primetime’s Suits, Ray Donovan and Castle to name but a few.

Photo: JPI

In his death, Billy’s family is encouraging people to take stock of their own mental health. “BJ would want anyone struggling with intrusive thoughts to seek professional help,” Hubbell said. “Do not suffer in silence or try to muscle through on your own. Mental health is vitally important and shouldn’t be spoken about in silos behind closed doors but rather in open forums with open arms. Shame has no place in the discussion to seek help.”

More great numbers for Live with Kelly and Mark. The talk shows Live’s Halloween: The Eras Show scored an impressive 2.9M total viewers on October 31, making it the most-watched Halloween episode in four years, according to the Nielsen ratings.

As is tradition with “Live’s Halloween” episodes, they are always filled with costume and pop culture moments and special guest surprises. Ripa and Consuelos were right in step with the biggest social media love story at the moment; that of Swift and her burgeoning romance with Kansas City Chiefs Tight End, Travis Kelce.

During Halloween week which started on Monday, October 30, Live was up up 11% versus the week prior in total viewers, and averaged 2.6 million viewers throughout the week.  Year-over-year, the talk show was up that week by 15% in terms of total viewers.  It looks like the former All My Children’s alum on-screen chemistry is just as palpable as it off-screen; as the two marrieds are making quite a successful run together on morning television.
