Here now is what many fans of All My Children and the soaps have been waiting to see, the final ratings week that included the 41-year-old soap.   And, we can report for the ratings week of September 19th -23rd, that AMC added a whopping  +499,000 viewers, which was expected with the exciting returns and the fact that the culmination of the series was covered every where in pop culture and people wanting to tune into see how the show decided to end its run on network television.  This gave AMC its best weekly performance in years with a total viewership of 2,990,000 eyeballs.

The week was also a good week for soaps with 5 of the 6 soaps adding viewers!  The Bold and the Beautiful also added  + 201,000 viewers, and with the addition of Jacob Young back to his old stomping grounds, we can anticipate that next week  in the ratings should be a good week for B&B as well!  The Young and the Restless once again retained the top spot and also added +99,000 viewers. One Life to Live fell to fourth place this week, but still added +110,000 viewers.

And why doesn’t this surprise me? AMC has alot more viewers than the idiots in charge claimed that the daytime genre is a dying breed… Viewers watch on their own time with our busy schedules. Total outrage. I CANNOT WAIT for The Chew to fail, the AMC fans will prevail!

Why am I not surprised that DAYS is last again. Maybe if the new writers gave us EJAMI they would be at number 1. I am not looking forward to this new reboot even though my faves have come back

Good for AMC, i was hoping they would climb higher towards the end but it really didn’t happen til the last week.
Days should jump higher next week because of the reboot, and hopefully OLTL will return to # 2 for good until it ends in January. GH deserves to be in last place at this point.

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
