Those are teasers, not spoilers..
I know there are many who do not know the difference of teasers and spoilers..
Spoilers Tell What will happen and when, and the outcome….
Teases are nothing more than a description of the daily show; much like what TV guide would tell of the daily show for that day in the guide..
Teasers do not— tell what will happen/outcomes etc of stories..
There is a soap site that has a terrible time with what spoilers are and what tease promotions are, and people are scared to tell the promotion teasers, and they are meant to be told, they are a form of promotion…
and I am looking forward to another awesome week, the teasers tell me it will be a very good week and not to miss it 🙂

Victor and Todds storyline is what im most interested in…

Just watched today’s episode. I have decided to give AMC two months to work out their problems. AJ and Miranda are making the show unwatchable. All the other actors are wonderful and I like the story lines. I understand the need for bringing in young soap fans but as an older fan, the AJ and Miranda show is not what I want to watch. Aj’s cursing and shooting the finger is just too much. I really don’t mind a few curse words but it was way too much today. I really don’t see AMC lasting very long and it will be because of AJ and Miranda monopolizing the show. Young actors are inexperienced actors and they are taking over the entire show. So unless AMC can bring in young viewers to replace the older viewers….. Also they hop between too many story lines. I think because the shows don’t last as long, they can’t really get into the stories like they use to. I was disappointed with today’s episodes but will continue to watch for awhile to see if things get better.

Todays episode was a letdown…i can let pass some cursing but with it in todays episode and popping the finger seemed more like lets do it just because we can…it seems this is what the writers are most excited about doing instead of delivering good storylines! I can understand using younger characters to attract younger fans but at the same time these writers need not to push away their established fan base. I turn 30 May 25th…maybe im too old for this! I like younger characters and older ones just the same! Hopefully Adam, Brooke and Opal will get more to do instead of being props for the younger set. My 55 year old mother dont mind younger as well but feels too much focus on AJ and Miranda is ruining the show too!

I totally disagree. This is AMC. Jesse, Angie, Tad,, etc. , even Erica– started as teens. Keep it up Agnes, I love it!

I disagree. Like it or not that is how real teenagers speak. I am loving the new actors and i think the writing is more authentic.

Soaps are not suppose to be realistic! They never were! That’s what made them fun. Most people would never do these things! How many people have died & came back to life? Soaps are not reality shows!

I’m wondering if we are watching the same show? Miranda and AJ have not been monopolizing the whole show. All My Children has always had a focus on the younger set. Thus the title of the show. Just the younger set we grew up watching grew up,just like we did.

AMC is great! there is variety…
The vets are all in good stories, suspense and mystery..
Jesse and Zac are heading into an awesome story..
Jr and David’s story has just begun, too ..
There are very good stories for the vets and the new young of the cast are doing a good job and their stories all effect the vets..
All the stories have just started and looking forward to them to get into full swing!

I hate the cussing! I think it hurts the shows, because they will lose some of their audience if they keep it up. I love my shows, but I hate cursing. What’s next will they take God’s name in vain? All the reasons I love my shows they are taking away. I will have to stop watching them if this continues. I hope enough people say something so it will stop. It is totaling unnecessary, and it is a change that needs to go! We lived without it for a year, we don’t have to watch filth.

Let me change that to… really… really… really… miss RC’s writing!!!

Me too! Im still watching but im not addicted like before…that could change in the weeks ahead! Too soon to give up at this point…i do like it but it needs more drama, a little Roxy humor, and romance! Romance outside the bedroom all soaps need! Like when me and my husband take a picnic lunch and long walks at the beach!

It is not possible to have all that you want in the beginning; 5 shows, sheeshhhh ..

I finally seen both reboots…AMC seems like two seperate soaps…The Young and The Restless and the Old and the Still Beatiful. OLTL is the best of the two. Both lack addiction and i agree with my friend Kim that the cursing and more explicit love scenes do seem to be there just because they can do it without network cencorship and does seemed overused. But me and my friends will remain watchers hoping for more story improvement. Had Victor not return OLTL wouldve had problems, im just saying!

I have not watched but the New York Times gave both shows a scathing review with all my children really ridiculed. The reviewer said the acting was awful and the younger set was playing roles they were too old for. i feel all my children died ten years ago as it ran out of gas. I have no interest in starting up again when there are much better shows to watch and I mean non daytime soaps. I have not heard a single comment at the water cooler or in the neighborhood about these reboots. There is better entertainment out there folks.

Cindy

Really? Instead of reading what some reporter at NYT who has probably never watched a single episode has to say,why not take 25 minutes out of your day. All My Children is better than it’s been in a decade.

I agree that reviewer came off as a moron who probably didn’t like either show in the first place.

So far I am loving both shows. Love the new Miranda, but not sure about AJ yet. The younger kids actually act like real life teenagers and not characters of father knows best teens. “Oh gee golly gee guys” is not life like and silly. I like the story of Miranda as this is really what teens of two moms or two dads put up with everyday in school. Whether it’s right or wrong, it’s life..

It’s a lifestyle choice for the parents but not the children, so it’s really refreshing to see how someones choices, any choices, really affect more than just them. I am looking forward to see how Miranda comes to terms with who her parents are, who she is, and how she really feels about that.

I think the younger cast so far are a great addition and I’m an old lady.

As far as teasers vs spoilers, I much prefer teasers. I think all the spoilers and soap magazines have really ruined the surprise of a cliffhanger and a must watch story line. I remember when I was a kid coming home from school and rushing to watch GH, and being excited about AMC when I was home sick. You never knew what was coming and it was great suspense.

I’m loving both of these shows, and so glad they’re back! Of course there are going to be differences from the televised versions, and it would be unrealistic to expect otherwise. I feel that there are enough familiar characters and stories to bring us right back to Pine Valley and Llanview, and I’m enjoying the journey!

clh

I agree. I can’t believe how many are complaining when they should be happy just to have our shows back. They have been updated from the 70’s to the 21st century and are much more realistic to today than they ever were on T.V.

I am giving AMC and OLTL every chance to succeed. I know going in these are not the soaps I watched in ABC for decades. They cannot be.

I caught up on first week over this past weekend. I nearly cried seeing Opal. Love her. I also loved seeing Bianca in the form of Eden Riegel (a life favorite!), and of course, Brooke and a surprisingly docile Adam. I was surprised by my enjoyment and interest in the Celia storyline and am curious about who her guardian is. A private girls school is very Pine Valley! And the actress playing Celia is very interesting. I do expect some contemporary touches overall, such as the three-way pitch Miranda dodged and some language. Storyline is key and there is plenty I found riveting. I was not watching at the very start (January 1970) but I think the reboot is similar to the original in its concern for the children. Also, AMC 2.0 can get lots of mileage from mining five years we did not see.

Let’s keep tuning in! Rarely do we get second chnaces like this!

AJ

Gotta give them a chance, I’ll watch.. I don’t care how bad it gets. I know it’s better to have them and suffer thru growing pains, than to not have them.

rebecca

I haven’t watched today’s episodes yet but why should they have growing pains??? There’s always a new show on prime time…we don’t “wait” to see it will get better! The writers of these soaps are supposedly experienced and should be able to tell a story and hold the viewer’s attention from the get-go…I would hope they caught up on both show’s histories…they should know how to write the characters without a blip.

I’ve posted this thought before but the whole “drawing a younger audience” is ridiculous. The fanbase that fought for these shows are the ages they are…they are the automatic demographic/numbers that these shows need to survive in the short run. if they lose us…I doubt they’re going to have “millions” on new viewers based on the finger and some random curse words thrown in to show how young and hip they are. LOL…people of all ages curse…you either do or you don’t. It doesn’t draw viewers…

Think of all the shows from the past…Friends, Seinfeld, Thirtysomething, Saturday Night Live, all the Vampire shows…they didn’t attract young viewers because they use certain words and give the finger.

These writers beter step up to the plate and start telling stories…not little meaningless segmants sewn together or even the most diehard fan is oging to close the book on their new “chapters…”

rebecca
rebecca

and…if I only knew how to edit or correct my typos I’d feel much better about my rant!!! LOL…so:

“wait to see IF it will get better…”

“of” new viewers

better not “beter”

going not “oging”

sigh.

Johnny

I am trying to really keep an open mind – I am not quite as interested in the younger set but DO UNDERSTAND that they need to attract younger viewers. I am more of the age bracket of Dixie-Tad-Angie-Jesse so naturally, I am the most interested in those characters ~ I don’t want Adam and Brooke to just be set decorations, I’d like to see and hear some interesting and meaningful dialogue transpire between them. I don’t want Opal to just bake brownies and give them to Petey, I feel she deserves a storyline of her own. These are just my observations and comments, the “new” ALL MY CHILDREN will need time to grow and expand and I’m sure we all agree on that.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”
