Rob Scott Wilson has been one busy guy!  First, becoming the first male model ever in the history of CBS’ top rated daytime game show, The Price is Right! And while there, he landed the role of Pete Cortlandt in the online reboot of All My Children!  And then, came word officially yesterday that Rob is actually been at Days of our Lives as the recast for the role of Ben, replacing Justin Gatson in the role.

This morning, Rob shared his sentiments on his final The Price is Right episode that airs today, and moving on full-time to Salem, and most importantly being from Boston, Rob remembers  the anniversary of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing today on his Instagram account.

Wilson shared:  “As you all may or may not have seen, my last taped episode of #PriceIsRight aired this morning. I thank God for such an amazing experience/opportunity and for being a part of history.  That’s all I ever wanted.  But in NO WAY am I leaving for a bad reason, some of you may have already read, but it’s for a GREAT reason… And I can’t wait for you all to see it unfold. Stay Tuned, and as always thank you all for your continued love and support. And lets not forget the most important part of today, 1 year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. Thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected 1 year ago xoxo #BostonStrong”

Rob also tweeted his acknowledgement of his time on The Price is Right:  “Thank you ALL for your love and support! @PriceIsRight will always have a place in my heart and my journey. Many new things on the horizon!”

I still think he shouldve played a recast Chad…unless Ben and Jordan turn out to be Eve’s children or get this story moving Days may no longer be my no.1 soap!!!

Same with the return of John Black who felt more like a day player…what was the point!!!

Hi jimh, I think the new Ben looks more like Jordan, which is good because they are Eve’s twin sons! The story could be slow because of the subject matter. The stalled talks with Charlotte Ross before settling with Kassie DePaiva could have slowed things down too. I think things are looking up! If I’m right, who would you like the father(s) of the “twins” to be: Frankie and or Jack or someone different?

Forever Days:Frankie should be the father…if the show goes that way!

4everDAYS did Eve have twin boys? I hope that they are related to Eve but was Jeanie/Teresa born when Eve was still on the show? If so then the ages don’t match up for Jordan. Maybe Ben is Eve’s son but Jordan is older and her step daughter.

It’s funny, looking at his photo, I thought it was the actor who played Chad. I hope he brings some excitement to the boring Jordan, Rafe, Ben “mystery” storyline.

BTripp, It has never been mentioned that Eve had children. Jeanie/Theresa is Eve’s half sister. The ages of Jordan and Ben have not been revealed.

Surprised CBS let him get away—- but trust me NBC and DAYS will have him Shirtless in Salem in no time, which I suspect is the main reason for switching Ben, this guy has better ABS LOL.

Patrick

LOL….

i’m certain.. he’ll be featured nonetheless…

I do have to agree : with the actor… who portrays, Nathan… on GH

he is far and away the winner in this category… and in hindsight… or full on headlights… should be

Oye! thank Goodness… Britt and Nathan… are : safe

Levi… is a little out there… and it’s not his doing… but… he reminds me of done over.. Bruce Jenner… all the national enquirer.. speculation.. that he’s in the TRANS – for – mation mode… fits this actor to a T

off track: but… doesn’t Levi ring true… on a comparative… to Spinelli… (Levi) own oddities and beats to his own drum…

back to Nathan… I thought.. he was much better on Mondays eppi when talking with Madeline… at the jail , and was a little better with Britt

Hopefully he will have some interesting lines on the show as the character Ben – so far, Ben has been kind of an uninteresting role.

How to be an Actor on a Soap Opera:

1.) Know your lines
2.) Look good with your shirt off
3.) Master that inquisitive look as the scene fades to commercial
4.) Look good with your shirt off
5.) Polish your teeth
6.) Practice that “sincere” look
7.) Look good with your shirt off

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

Meanwhile, Riegel sent out a series of tweets: “Hooo boy…cat’s out of the bag! Fans, please don’t judge our show based on these leaked videos!! The effects are going to knock your socks off. And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

Now below, check out the Wild Cards “leaked footage” and let us know if you think of the …. um … drama! Comment below.  And one more thing … Happy April Fool’s!

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.
