The Cast of Saturday Night Live Spoofs the AMC Wrap Party – Watch the Video!

Last night on Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin was the host. During the show, the SNL gang and Baldwin, a former soap star himself on The Doctors, spoofed daytime soaps with a fictitious look at the All My Children wrap-party which had Susan Lucci addressing the cast and crew about the end of the 41-year-old soap.  During her speech, many former cast and crew members popped in and the comedy ensued.

So watch the clip after the jump and let us know, do you think it was funny or offensive?

I hated it, thought they made a complete mockery of the Genre, as a whole. Not to mention how raw AMC fans wounds are right now. Shame on SNL, I realize the premise of the show is to make fun of current events but this was just wrong on so many levels.

I liked that they did a sendup but it just wasn’t that funny. It would have been better if they could have had real soap stars jump in and I would have loved to have seen Sarah Michelle Gellar play Susan 😉 The only thing that irritates me is that I know my beloved OLTL won’t get the same send off.

I thought is was funny. For SNL writers that probably did their best to nail every soap convention, they did a good job. What soap hasn’t had its share of lame amnesia stories, coma, evil twin, weird incestuous relationship, secret paternities, and back from the dead surprises.

I agree. I wasn’t offended. The skit was horrible. It wasn’t funny. It was stupid. Now, I remember why I quit watching SNL years ago — the writing is terrible.

Some of it was funny, but I think they could have done a better job. Nice idea, but poor execution.

It wasn’t that funny, the girl playing La Lucci is horrible, she needs to stick with the Miley character.

I loved it [although I thought SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE would not mention ALL MY CHILDREN’s ending since SNL is an NBC show & AMC was an ABC soap] & was pleased that it was mentioned. I think Vanessa Bayer [sp?] is a great actress/utility player. I still feel sad that AMC has left the building…but seeing the SNL skit made it a little easier to take.

I wasn’t offended but I agree, good idea but poor execution. SNL might also need new writers.

It would have been alright with me if it were funny, but it wasn’t.

Horrible. It definitely made a mockery of the whole genre, instead of celebrating AMC’s long run in any way. It made me sick to my stomach to see the way they made fun of Susan Lucci. This is only contirbutes to the negative cultural bias in America of soap operas. Absolutely appalling. The end of the skit took it too far. With the ‘The End? ……………….Yes!’ The least they could have done was give a congrats to the show in that last second, but instead they took it a step further with the mockery. Appalling.

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.
