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.

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
