I am a former AMC viewer who has tuned back in I really think the show has gotten so much better since the new writer came in. I love MINX! David and Tad/Cara. Heck I even found myself enjoying Greenlee and Ryan for the first time ever!

I hope people tune back in to GH. I know there have been some disappointments over the years but Jonathan Jackson, Laura Wright, Chad Duell, & so many others are kicking some great stuff out there. They are really doing a great job. If you’ve stopped watching, it’s worth another look especially with new writers on board.

I am really glad to see the gain in viewers and but it is sad that the ABC network does not care about the loyal fans. I think they should really look at keeping these ICON daytime shows on the network not just online even if they have to find another time slot for them and if they can’t sell them to another network at a fair price to keep them alive. I Grew up watching these shows and have been loyally watching them for 40 some years even though I have to tape them sometimes. I am glad to… Read more »

Had abc/disney truly done a survey from the beginning, they would have known that cancelling these soaps would be a devistating move! Instead of it bringing in more revenue for the company, it would in fact, cost them money by losing their reputation and the respect of their viewers! Abc/disney, you have the opportunity to make things right with the soap fans, take it! Find a way that all soap fans can/will be able to continue viewing these programs over the air. You know any and all options u are left with!! You can redeem yourself with the soap fans!!!

Really happy for AMC & OLTL’s increased ratings! They’re both doing great. Sad to see them both go off broadcast in Sept/Jan – to switch over to web-based shows. Really looking forward to seeing how they transition.

my hope is pp will put the shows back on t.v. in the same time slot and kick abc a**. What a net work mess at abc. How does one sabotage their own net work and still have a job. I dont know about anyone else-but i will for ever view ABC Disney as a net work of liars and lies. where ego and greed rule over the wants of the fans…. whom ever put in place the saboteurs- they did a wonderful job-you should be able to buy ABC for a little of nothing in another year.

…Here goes the adage, write good stories and you will have viewers. Everyone is tuning back in now that Lorraine and Agnes are on board….and the character driven soaps are revived.

OLTL #2 in the important women 18-49 demographic! Go OLTL! Frons made the biggest mistake of his career.

DAYS is still at the bottom- did they gain any viewers? I hope it gets better for them as I am a DAYS fan but Im so happy for AMC and OLTL.

Hopefully GH will bounce back once Garin Wolf’s material starts airing, and he can start cleaning up the mess that Bob Guza left behind. It won’t happen overnight, cause Guza had many years to ruin GH. But I’m confident the show will bounce back. They still have the best cast on daytime, in my opinion. It’s just a matter of someone being able to give all those talented people some good material to sink their teeth into.

i think it is sad they are cancelling these iconic soaps! There are millions of fans that dont have access to the internet and this is their favorite part of the day.They are shut ins, disabled, Some people even tape the shows while they are at work to watch at night for their “escape” It is a crying shame ABC doesnt care about their loyal viewers.I have been watching AMC since the first day it came on the air,Shame on you ABC and mr Frons!

Funny how GH, the only ABC soap not cancelled is the lowest rated soap in the ratings! OLTL and AMC are on fire and are high in the ratings (OLTL # 2 in demos?!?!?) and have gained hundreds of thousands in a year, while GH has dropped over 300,000!
Frons and ABC are complete idiots.

I grew up watching one life to live, GH, and all my children with my mother. Partly because i couldn’t watch my cartoons until after my mothers soaps were over. I am a dude,but i love the soaps. Yes, i think all my children and GH have gotten too stupid for me to watch, but i love One Life to Live. Especially, Todd Manning. One Life to Live is as part of my life as breathing is. It’s a damn shame ABC is taking it off the air and once it’s off the air, ABC will not be allowed to… Read more »

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.
