‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

Photo: ABC

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.

Please bring back “All My Children.” Do we need another talk show? I know Drew Berrymore was planning a talk show and am hoping this will not be the S,S&K replacement. There are too many shows doing the same things with different hosts. Nothing feels original anymore. If ABC does not bring back “AMC,” how about an entertaining game show. “Lets Make a Deal” and “Price is Right” scores huge ratings for CBS. I’d like to see “Password” or “Concentration” come out of the vault.

It doesn’t hurt my feelings that it was canceled. We need something entertaining, not news, or just music but something good for a change. They decided to take all the soaps off maybe they could take some of this mess off. Pretty soon shows like GMA will be all that’s on during the day and that’s when I turn my TV off.

straham Sara and Keke was a mess to watch, Sara Haines does way better at the view wish I hope takes her back, or she can do what you need to know with Amy Robach. straham already got plenty of jobs, and Keke can go back to doing movies. all will be good.

Yes, they should find a replacement….uh…guess what – I KNOW – they could do a reboot of ALL MY CHILDREN ~ YOU know, that show that should never have been cancelled in the first place? Yeah, uh huh, that one.

Not surprised at this news! The show was doomed from the start because it featured Michael Strahan! The only time I watched was when they had part of the AMC cast on and it was so awkward!!
Sara & Kiki are fine, I’m sure. But how Michael got a show featuring him is beyond comprehension! He was awful on Kelly & Michael Live too!!

Janet K Penn
Guest
Janet K Penn

That show was awful – Kiki way to stinking full of herself – as is Straham. I refused to watch the chew for a couple years but once I gave it I actually enjoyed it. Did not understand why they got rid of it. If we can’t have AMC – why not a cooking show???

Either AMC or One Life to Live should be brought back! But I have never expected ABC or the CBS (to bring back GL or ATWT) network daytime executives to do anything that actually makes sense. One Life to Live closed in Jan 2012 with ratings reflecting 3.1 million viewers. Guess that ABC would love to have 3 million viewers in daytime again.

Don’t know if there’s any chance of bringing back any of the dead soaps to fill this timeslot, but maybe they should move GH up by one hour, so the idiot TV affiliates in some markets don’t have it running against Days of Our Lives at the same time.

Also, they should drop the idiotic cable company “lockdown” on abc.com. No network that broadcasts over the public airwaves should be requiring a cable subscription to watch the programs carried on that network.

It will likely be 2 game shows. ABC has several they have the rights too that run at night over the summer. When you look at daytime ratings before all the re-runs of the summer took hold, 2 shows were tops in ratings and demos….CBS’s The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal. They are cheaper to make and are paying off with ad rates. Bet ABC goes the same direction. Soaps are too expensive to produce.

Dawn
Guest

Who cares if another reality show hits the dust or, for that matter, another fake news show? The networks seem to think they know what viewers want more than the viewers. I don’t even turn my television on except for episodes of GH. There just nothing on daytime except for GH. Networks just cut their own audiences by digging to the bottom of the barrel to bring out these blabbering hours of nonsense.

I liked the show. It was meant to be light hearted anf fun, so the timing with the pandemic and 120K deaths was off.

I figured the cancellation was coming. The show wasn’t for me.. and the ratings were low. I had hoped with all the attention reboots and AMC were getting that what would come would be a 30 minute GMA3 and – 30 minute AMC, which would return to taping in NYC. Guess not. :/

Of the co-hosts, Haines has always been a favorite of mine. I do hope she finds a quality assignment that allows her to sparkle. Perhaps a return to The View?

Please bring back Guiding Light and As The World Turns! I know you won’t even consider canceling one of the Bell SOAPS to make room.Get rid of the talk…its not the same as it was when it premiered.Better yet, how about putting GL and ATWT IN NIGHTIME…at 10 or 11 at night? Or even at midnight! I think that timeslot should be considered and tested out.The 11:00pm timeslot would allow for the network programming to still air. I for one, will definitely watch… Thank you.

Here’s the line-up:
10:00 – The Talk
11:00 – Price is Right
12:30 – Y&R
01:30 – B&B
02:00 – ATWT
02:30 – GL
03:00 – Let’s Make A Deal

12:30 thru 2:00 keeps the Bell series together as today. With ATWT at it’s old time slot with GL following but at 30 mins each like Bold. Do I need to come up there and help these CBS executives?

Barbara from Atlanta

I like this comment. Too often, ATWT and GL get overlooked in the lamenting of cancelled soaps. I am no television executive but have wondered, from an economic angle, how much cheaper would it be to produce a 30-minute show than an hour series? I’d guess that it wouldn’t be half the cost but it clearly would not be as much as producing a whole hour. I’ve wondered why (especially in the case of ATWT) reducing the show to 30 minutes was not considered rather than wholly cancelling it. A 30-minute ATWT would have fit nicely in a block with… Read more »

Please bring back “All My Children”…several of the cast would come back. There is a Food Channel for those that want to watch food/cooking shows, there’s a Game Show Network, all these different types of channels, yet that one guy, (on ABC who I won’t name) wanted AMC gone for a cooking show. BIG MISTAKE!!! AMC still has a huge fan base. If you’re not going to start it back up, at least put it on Netflix or Hulu, bring the Soap Opera Channel back; or put it out on DVDs so we can buy it! Thank you.

G8ad it is go he I liked it at first,but but when you added Kiki that ruined the whole thing you know I mean it’s just took away the limelight for Sarah and she deserves it she’s a good girl with a couple of kids and doing a show bless her heart I am god why ruin a good thing the panama the Panamanian whatever it is ruined it but Kiki attitude I thought she was too over-the-top loud and took away from Michael and I like Michael but she needs to go please we don’t need another talk show… Read more »

I’ll never have & never will watch anything that they put on at 12:00 or 1:00 on ABC since they took AMC off. They should’ve left All Zmy Children & One Life To Live alone.

Why cant ABC make a good decision anymore?! First they cancel 2 most beloved Soaps of all time, then they fire the best hosts of DWTS, now they cancel a really good noon time talk show (one of few on ABC i might add). I hate what they’re doing & i know there are many many who agree. I cant imagine Tyra Banks being half as good of a host on DWTS. I wonder if they’ll put another damn cooking show on at noon. Most of my nighttime favorites are on NBC anyway. After General Hospital, i switch to NBC… 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.
