Susan Lucci (Erica) will co-host, along with the ladies of The View: Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.  Special guests will include AMC‘s creator Agnes Nixon and Lucci’s cast mates, Cameron Mathison (Ryan), Rebecca Budig (Greenlee), and Vincent Irizarry (David).  There will also be several surprise drop-ins by other AMC cast members, past and present.

According to TV Guide, “Expect lots of exclusives, including never-before-seen footage of AMC‘s final day of production (sob!), interviews with many of the AMC alumni who made return appearances during the soap’s final weeks, and a sneak peek at the finale.”

And soapers, the entire View audience will be filled with devoted fans of the series.  So if you want tickets to the AMC homage on The View… you can mail your ticket request to: The View Salutes AMC, 320 West 66 Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10023 and maybe you can be in the audience, as we say farewell to one of daytime’s all-time greatest soap operas on network television!

This is great for fans of AMC. I surely hope they do the same for OLTL which has been on longer….is consistently higher rated…..and has Erika Slezak (The greatest soap actress on all of daytime television).

Forget this. Why give “The View” good ratings? I’d rather just watch the final episode of “AMC” and be done with ABC.

Done with Abc. Byebye Brian Fronz. And FYi, hope you choke on your stupid Chew. Nobody cares about a Food Network show. If we did we’d flip the channel and watch one. You are a jerk and a loser and I am so done with this network.

Kelly Ripa To Guest Star On CW’s Riverdale

Here’s a fun bit of casting news!  Live with Kelly and Ryan and former All My Children star, Kelly Ripa  (Ex-Hayley) is joining her real-life husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) on the hit CW soapy drama Riverdale.

Consuelos already plays the the role of Hiram Lodge, and now Ripa will plays his mistress, Mrs. Mulwray.

Kelly shared the inspired-casting choice on Instagram relating: “It’s a family affair …23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play. Coming soon to the CW;s Riverdale.”’

The CW released a statement on the casting of Ripa, adding: “Kelly Ripa will guest star on Riverdale as Mrs. Mulwray. Confident and tough, she is Hiram Lodge’s alleged mistress. She’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”

Film buffs take note!  Ripa’s character name is borrowed from Faye Dunaway’s Oscar-nominated role in Chinatown (1974), Evelyn Mulwray.   Those who saw Chinatown know that Evelyn was a femme fatale as well caught up in a conspiracy!

And there is more “All in the Consuleos Family” casting.  The couple’s son Michael is portraying the teen-aged version of Hiram on tonight’s all-new episode.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT
