We are sure All My Children fans feel the same as soap icon Susan Lucci in that they have gone through the grieving process of losing the town of Pine Valley and the characters they love from the soap opera map!

Earlier this week to promote her new series that debuts Saturday on Investigation Discovery, Deadly Affairs, Susan stopped by HLN’s Showbiz Tonight and chatted with host, A. J. Hammer.  During their chitchat, Susan went on to say that, “It’s been a year of mourning. It really has been a mourning period.”

Lucci continued to say how much she missed playing Erica Kane, but most importantly her cast mates and extended AMC family, who had become her friends and the laughter they all enjoyed every day on the set.

After the jump watch the segment with Susan, and let us know if you are still mourning the loss of AMC too!

I still miss AMC every day – it was a ritual to sit down at night and watch All My Children and General Hospital. I am now watching AMC classic episodes on Soap Net and they are still better than 90% of what’s on tv today.

ABC/Disney should be ashamed of themselves for cancelling such a classic irreplaceable show.

I truly feel like ABC pulled the plug on “All My Children” far too soon. Once Lorraine went back into power as the head writer, the storylines were consistent and true to the origins of the series. If Lorraine had taken over before Pratt could have come in and destroyed the series, I would bet $1M that it would still be on air.

What should have happened is FOX should have picked up “Guiding Light”, “As the World Turns” and “All My Children” and become the best network for daytime television.

Have never understood why Fox or The CW never took the opportunity to get into the daytime drama game. It’s such a waste to have all of those stupid court room tv shows on Fox during the day, and I have no idea what the CW shows during the day….but I think both networks lost out big on not getting involved. Not to mention, Oprah Winfrey not picking up AMC or OLTL on her now struggling network.

FOX/The CW probably didn’t have the funds to home GL/ATWT/AMC so they couldn’t pick them up. FOX has been battling becoming an official main network for a while, picking up GL/ATWT/AMC would’ve made them a solid daytime channel and have excellent success within Daytime.

And I get why Oprah didn’t pick them up. I don’t blame her for making a business decision that she felt she couldn’t make.

I have alway’s felt that oprah didn’t make a wise buisness decision…Look at her OWN channel it’s not doing well at all…..

OWN is failing because Oprah herself in incapable of programming a full network of variety instead of repeated old episodes of her friends’ series.

I do still miss ALL MY CHILDREN and likely always will. Thank goodness for Youtube and such which allow us to enjoy scenes and clips from this awesome daytime drama. Like a novel once read, we can “pull from the shelf” something from Pine Valley to relive the pleasure. Ms. Lucci is correct. It has been a year of mourning. And it is a crying shame the series did not get a pat close because of that misfire called Prospect Park. There is a song from the musical RAGTIME that goes “We can never go back to before…” It;s true, but I do allow myself that wish from time to time.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
