Looks amazing!

The show needs either Erica or Kendall to anchor it, like Viki anchors OLTL.

Alicia Minshew has nothing going on, she needs to sign on to be Kendall again. I think AMC’s plan was to pass the show from Erica to Kendall anyways, prime opportunity.

They have neither Erica nor Kendall. The actress, Alicia Minshew came back for an episode and it’s reported that Erica has returned for one episode as well, but it could be just a rumor.

Just because Susan isn’t on the show, does not mean over a dozen actors and crew can’t go on with the show.

And as for Alicia, she is currently prepping for a play and has other opportunities in the works.

Making blanket statements like Alicia Minshew has nothing going on is ridiculous. She’s a working actress, with a full schedule. She’s not just sitting around waiting for the phone to ring! She’s filming a movie this spring, is slated to star in a pilot and also works on an online drama series. Maybe YOU have nothing going on.

I honestly believe that it would be best to just recast the role of Kendall. I know that Alicia has a lot of die hard fans out there, but I see nothing wrong with moving forward with a new actress. After all, Alicia was a recast….As for Susan Lucci, I think the show will be fine is she is put in recurring status and appears when she has the opportunity. PP can utilize Julia Barr, Cady McClain, Jill Larson or Debbie Morgan to anchor the show. I would like to see Susan on a more regular basis, but think the show will survive just fine, if she’s put in a need-to-show only basis (like when there’s a big story going on for Bianca).

But in the overall spectrum of things, I believe that both shows are going to have to make some recasts in order to drive more stories. And as a long time soap watcher, I can deal with seeing the proper actor replace another, in order to improve story development.

the show must go on! Kendall can be recast easily and at this point, i dont think she is a “must”. Let the newbies develop their roles and all will be fine.

Many ”kids” just like the AMC of the 1970’s ..
It is starting out with a mystery, I like that ..

I always loved both soaps near equally, but now I think OL will be the front runner., with me..
Nonetheless, I am a die-hard fan of both soaps and can’t wait to see them once again..

That was neat. I liked how they filmed outside and the music was good too. I am on the edge of my seat and can’t wait to have both of them back in my life. This is just thrilling and a joy all wrapped up in a big pink bow! Here we go again! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

The outdoor scenes look great, and it has its moments…dont mind the teens but alltogether it just doesnt seem itll be as good as OLTL. ill have to just wait and see first!

I think it looks like a great new show but this isn’t the old AMC. I didn’t recognize 90% of these charactors. I’m going into this as a new show and not expecting anything more but I do think that they will lose many of those fans (after the initial few weeks) who wanted it the way it used to be.

WOW Just WOW!!! I love all the outdoor scenes! To see Brooke and Adam is just beyond words. Seeing Dixie Hug Adam brought tears to my eyes! I can not wait for the 29th!!!

Loving the location shoots. It’s going to be so brilliant to have AMC back in my life. Marissa was definitely killed off; Marissa or someone else close to Bianca. Still wish CBL was coming back. But AMC looks so amazing and like it should have been during the Pratt years! Cannot wait to venture into Pine Valley once again, all rejuvenated!

The new AMC, it looks to me to be a really solid half hour drama, the way daytime soaps should be. Great to see the returning performers and I look forward to figuring out who the new youngsters are portraying. Love the location shooting, Stamford area makes a terrific stand in for Pine Valley!

The exterior shots are OUTSTANDING-all in all, a great preview. But, of course, the complainers are once again being selfish. Quit worrying about who’s NOT there-and appreciate who is. These people have taken a leap of faith, primarily because of their love of AMC and the fans, and it’s time to suck it up and take the leap with them. Once again, if AMC-and OLTL-fail under the weight of people’s unrealistic expectations, there’s no bringing them back

Troy – as I said before, this is a “new” show. Problem is people are refusing to admit that it’s a “reboot” and want it to be the same AMC. I feel these folks are in for a rude awakening and will probably drop off within a couple of weeks time. I don’t blame the marketing department for trying to gain new viewers – as they should. I’ll be watching but with the expectation that this is a “new” show with SOME roots in the old AMC.

i love how they showed the picture book from the early 90s at the end. Gives me a walk down memory lane when Erica’s pic would fall into the page and the book would close…. I LOVE that my soap is BACK!!!

Opal, Jesse, Angie, Thor and David, um, let me see…guess that’s it. 4 good actors lured into a pile of crap. I said I’d watch a couple of episodes out of curiosity. But this ‘teaser’ has pretty much summed it all up for me before it even begins. Don’t think I even have to bother with HULU. Back to my television, news programs and re-runs of AMC BEFORE all the drek and the new demo appear. Sorry. This looks like a real dud.

Bianca, Brooke, and Adam are also back. I am going to give it a try but I think most of the story lines will involve the new young actors. I am not sure why they don’t recast Kendall. Hopefully Tad will return. Hope Erika returns also. I just don’t think they are going to get enough young viewers to make up for the older viewers they are going to lose. I would celebrate the return of AMC if it was truly a return to AMC. I know they think that older viewers will not watch online but all my friends and I have iPads. It is going to be so sad to see these soaps not make it again. These soaps have a large fan base that would watch if they just hadn’t changed it so much.

I can’t wait until AMC comes back on?? lets go!!!!

I think veteran viewers will be disappointed after the initial,excitement wears off. Especially if they think stories will revolve around the veterans. I have low expectations and I’m unsure whether to bother with all the new kids.

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”

And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”
