In a terrific interview last night on the Jay Leno Show, All My Children’s Susan Lucci discussed the cancellation of AMC and how she found out the terrible news.  In addition, Lucci chats on the persistent rumors that she may be joining Desperate Housewives, and ensures fans of AMC that the show will go out with a bang in the hands of Agnes Nixon come this September. Here is an excerpt below of what she said on how she got the news of AMC’s axing.

Lucci: “I was completely blindsided. I had just started the book tour. I had been to cities all over the country meeting thousands and thousands of people enthusiastic, so excited about the show. I had no idea. I was shocked.  I found out just like the rest of the company of actors. I found out five minutes before. I received a call from Brian Frons, the Vice President of Daytime television, asking me to come upstairs to the producer’s office.  He informed me our show had been canceled and we were going off the air in September. I kind of knew something was going on because when I went up the stairs there were a lot of very seriously dressed executives coming down. I was shocked.  I had asked Mr. Brian Frons what they were replacing us with. And he said a reality show that costs 40 percent less to produce.”

I truly like to see AMC and OLTL saved. There are thousands and thousands of disappointed soap fans. I think Brian Fronz if I spelt his name right, needs to reconsider the followers who have been so faithful over time. Very dedicated viewers who enjoyed both these shows. It is not about the ratings. The ratings are there. The fan voices speak the truth and say it all. I HOPE he decides to do the right thing by the writers, the actors themselves and the viewers who made the shows success over the years , Many of the viewers who… Read more »

I’ll have to check to see if the clips are up on youtube because Hulu video clips can’t be viewed up here in Canada yet.

I’m still wavering from disbelief and being pissed off that ABC treated the casts and crews of both shows so cavelierly.

Poor Susan lied to and had to answer all the inquiries on her book tour…I liked how she said they would give a good performance. “This Mr. Brian Frons” is right Susan says a lot without saying. I like the Agnes Nixon tribute “the one the audience loves.” Great interview.

Susan looks fantastic, as does Rob! first & foremost, I am going to fight until the end for this show, but if it doesn’t pan out, I’d much rather see her on Hot In Cleveland permanently than on Desperate Housewives. maybe an appearance episode, but definitely a regular in Cleveland(;

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

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.
