Isn’t it ironic that ABC Daytime is tossing out of its line-up All My Children, but yet the alphabet network’s hit daytime talk show The View will be celebrating its ending and demise with with a special full-hour special episode airing September 23, the same day the soap ends its 41-year-run!

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.

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
