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.

Scott

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.

I will always, always miss AMC and OLTL! Still boycotting ABC/D!

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

TODAY: Mia St. John Visits 'The Doctors' To Raise Awareness On The Tragic Deaths Of Julian and Kristoff St. John

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
