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.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
