Soap replacements; The Chew & The Revolution Promos Revealed!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Soap Opera Network got their hands on the first look video promotional materials for The Chew, the replacement for All My Children, hosted by Mario Batali, Clinton Kelly, Carly Hall, Michael Symon and Daphne Oz, (daughter of Dr. Oz!) and, The Revolution, the replacement series for One Life to Live.

The Revolution features Tim Gunn, Harley Pasternak, and Kimberley Locke as co-hosts who take woman on a 360 degree metamorphosis. ABC Daytime is launching these new series under the new promotional banner/campaign for the day-part; It’s a Brand New Day. Materials for the campaign will be sent out to advertisers and press outlets beginning next week as the network presents its 2011-2012 Upfronts at Lincoln Center in New York City on Tuesday, May 17.  This is also the place that soap protesters will be making their voices heard in defiance of the decision by the network to cancel AMC and OLTL.

Since The Revolution is premiering on Monday, January 23rd, that would mean that One Life to Live’s last airdate would then make sense to be Friday, January 20, 2012.  The last episode of OLTL had been in question as to which Friday in January would be the last time we see the residents of Llanview.

Make sure to watch the new series promos and then let us know what you think of them. We are  sure everyone has something to say or a comment to share on this.

Boo. Hiss. How could they possibly do this, with all the money they already have, knowing how many people (who don’t have their fortunes) lost their jobs so that these shows can air? We have basic cable channels for these types of shows. ABC, CBS, and NBC are where we look for soaps in the daytime. I have not watched Let’s Make A Deal or The Talk and I won’t ever watch these two shows either. People just don’t give a darn about others’ livelihoods anymore and I won’t support it. Shame on all who are responsible for the loss… Read more »

Two thumsb down, way down! If I wanted to watch either of these shows, I would tune in to The Food Network, or watch The Biggest Loser on NBC, or Extreme Makeover the latest version set to appear ABC Primetime any day now.

ABC can promote this crap all they want. I don’t see those of us who have watched All My Children & One Life to Live all these years watching these shows. Congratulations ABC, you are about to make your network unwatchable.

You should make more comments like this… It’s been six months now..Why haven’t you made more comments concerning the soaps? There are commericls for The Revolution now…Doesn’t that upset you??? We should support the soap’s with alot more comments like this one..I will be watching OLTL on the internet when it comes on in Jan. 2012..Everyone will be watching AMC & OLTL on the internet & no one will be watching daytime programing on ABC……..A lot of the actors & actresses agreed to do this such as Michael Easton & viickie Etc..

These new shows that ABC is putting up I have absolutely NO interest in. If I wanted to watch this type of show there are plenty of channels that are promoting these . To take All My Children and One Life to Live for this is unimaginable. Why ABC would make such a bad mistake. Money is the only motive, but what about all the ones that are going to lose their jobs now…what about them. Brian Frons is the only one that he cares about …himself, his pockets. More money for him, and who cares what happens to the… Read more »

Nobody is interested in these new shows. AMC and OLTL have a very large and loyal following. They even have an entire publications that sells millions dedicated to these shows. I’m really tired of corporate america deciding what we want to watch without any real data to support their decisions. These are not quality shows; they are just dirt cheap to produce and will most likely be off the air after a year or so. Keep the soaps and quit feeding us a load of you know what.

This very avoidable public relations fiasco, spawned by Sweeney & Frons’ gross and erroneous miscalculations and skewed ratings systems – will be studied in business schools throughout the world for many years to come, as how NOT to run a business, how NOT to a broadcasting enterprise, how NOT to run an entertainment conglomerate that was founded on all things HOSPITALITY. When all is said and done, it will be said that these cancellations were an infamous decision on the part of Anne Sweeney, Brian Frons, and Asleep at the Wheel Disney’s Iger. Walt Disney must be spinning in his… Read more »

I havent even thought of have the points you have made in your comment. Someone should contact AARP. That would be interesting. I also like the connection of the womens movement, and how Mrs. Sweeny would not have a job if there was no movement, and then back handly wipe out a industry that would of supported her and her acomplishments to be in a man’s world. Such disrespect. Also shame on the Disney brand for cashing in on the capture of Bin Laden

While many of the personalities in these new daytimes series are appealing and favorites of mine, I cannot and will not pay attention to their new shows. Most of these hosts already has a place somewhere on the dial, but where does daytime drama live now? Apparently nowhere. ABC’s decision to drop AMC and OLTL remains most disappointing and upsetting to me. I stil mourn the cancellation of ATWT. Surely in a tele-universe that promises (but really does not deliver) so many options, this entertaining genre of programming has a place. I love daytime and do not like this current… Read more »

Did you also notice in the names that Dr Oz’s daughter and some of the fashion people are people that work with Oprah. I dont want to bash Oprah but no wonder she’s not sticking up for the soaps. I know she said it was a finacial reason but she has a connection by the people involed. I also did not know that The Talk was a replacement of ATWT so in honor of ATWT and their fans I will not be tuning into that program anymore.

Regarding the food show, why would I want to be associated with an alleged tip-stealer? Why would I want to cook like him unless I wanted to LOOK like him. YUCK! Also, I do not need a make-over, a new attitude or anything else associated with a metamorphosis. I have spent 54 years honing who I am and I kinda like the result. Now let’s move on to the meat of this comment. These soaps have a loyal following consisting of millions of viewers who are multi-generational. Alas, they cost money to make. How about Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, all… Read more »

I watched the revolution promo and can’t believe ABC would replace our soaps with this stuff! BORING! OVER DONE! I don’t watch this kind of show on other networks, so why would I watch it on ABC?!!!!!
So ABC, if you do cancel the soaps, I won’t be watching anything on your network!
ABC- you are clueless and also greedy beyond belief!

No, no, no, no, no!!!!! I will not be watching. I have been a loyal fan of AMC/OLTL for 41 years. If ABC goes forth with this my household will not be watching ABC or Disney, no Disney Stores, Disneyland, or DisneyWorld, no Disney Cruise vacation. I don’t need to watch some fat, red faced Mario Batali cook! Obviously it has done wonders for his “full-fat-bellied” body! I know all I need to know about cooking and keeping healthy! What this world does not need are more stupid reality shows that Mr. Frons, obviously having a “hate-on” for women, feels… Read more »

The only people I see viewing those shows are Rachel Ray and the parents and family members of the reality casts. Otherwise they both look like duds and been there, done that-shows to me.

These shows are more than likely doomed. Yes, I am bitter as a devote AMC and OLTL fan, and will not watch them, but putting that aside, clearly, there are enough reality shows with these themes (with varied twists), and they are certainly not needed on network TV as well. I understand that reality shows cost far less to make, BUT if the viewership is next to nothing, what exactly are you saving – 0 from 0 still equals 0, leaving no profit margin. BTW, while I have always liked Katie Couric, if she comes to ABC with her spin… Read more »

If you want to air these shows put them in the right place, on a cooking channel or a reality show channel! we love our soaps that have had DEDICATED fans from the beginning….the Kanes, Buchannans, Kramers etc….thats OUR families too! some of us grew up with them! YOU WANT A REVOLUTION??? wait and see the revolution that is gonna happen to your networks when America turns you off and wont even hit your channels on a surf! CHEW on that ABC!!

I don’t think i could sleep at night or at least sleep with one eye open. Does ABC seriously really think that these shows are going to last? I know they won’t! and knowing full well that they are putting all these people out of work?

Another dumb show from Disney/ABC. Chew on our dollars that supports and supported ABC. ABC if you’re thinking changing shows will help the budget. Wait till nobody watching day time or primetime on a ABC. Guess you will have to close up the network. Your going wish you satisfied a few million people, In the business world the word of mouth can make you or break up. Current million or more ABC fans are angry now and forever, You betrayed us and we have no use for you.

I am really saddened by the loss of AMC and OLTL. I have already given up on ABC programming. I have not seen anything in new lineup worth watching. When soaps are gone then so am I ABC. To be a loyal fan means absolutely nothing to ABC. All I watch now on that network are my two soaps. I switch to different chanel when soaps are over for the day. Lots of chanels to choose from rather than ABC. I have been a loyal viewer for over 40 years. I wonder if The Chew and Revolution will attract millions… Read more »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
