In a hilarious satire last night on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert compared the latest Washington D.C. sex scandal involving former CIA Director, David Petraeus to a soap calling the entire lurid story the latest steamy episode of “General’s Hospital”!

After illustrating all the “characters” in Petraeus’s sex saga and saying it’s time to move on from it, all of a sudden All My Children’s Susan Lucci walked out on to the stage and revealed that, “General Petraeus has developed amnesia, and cant remember that he’s pregnant… by his own evil twin… who’s in a coma… and is my lover.”

And there is much more hilarity to this segment between Lucci and Colbert, especially when Susan slaps him from afar saying she has telekinesis, just like General Petraeus!

Watch it after the jump and let us know what you thought of La Lucci, and how General Petraeus’ scandal is very much like a convoluted storyline on of our favorite soaps!

I’m not surprised. I think the whole Petraeus thing is beyond soapy. My hubby said he’ll never make fun of my soaps anymore after this crazy story.

My husband cannot get enough of this show as well as The Daily Show, but I did not see this one. Thanks for sharing, Michael.

I always felt that the name “Petraeus” sounded like “betray us.” Ever since he was put in charge and his name became household, I have thought “betray us.” I suppose it is fitting that he is now part of [yet another] stupid sex scandal.

This was laugh-out-loud funny! Susan has a great sense of humor and it was good to see her sharing it!

Loved it. The fact that it was done with a tongue in each cheek makes it even better. But it also helps to prove the point that the soap is an American treasure that MUST be preserved…

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…)
