It’s a great forum to get a direct dialogue going and for me to hear and respond to all of the chatter that “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” inspires among our passionate viewers.”

In addition to exclusive interviews, special guests and interaction with fans, the weekly broadcast, which airs the same day as the TOLN Soaps final episode of the week, host Michael Fairman will identify and playback the standout moments and performances of the week from All My Children and One Life to Live, plus other special audio content throughout the show.

This sounds wonderful, but I’d like to say honestly I am sure confused, you get this kind of news and it gives one hope that this whole concept is going to work and it’s exciting. Then you get news that the network is shutting down for hiatus even earlier than originally announced, right on the heels of the shows now only two a week instead of four. What are the ratings looking like? I am feeling frustrated as a long time fan who really looked forward to this then went through the let down then miracles of miracles, the shows do come back. I don’t know what to believe it makes it really impossible to fully embrace the whole thing when it changes every day. Im sorry Michael Fairman, what a great opportunity for you and I hate to be a downer here. I think continuity is what was always a big draw for us that love our shows, so this is unsettling and I think that’s what I have. Anyone have anything more encouraging, I’d love to hear it right now. Thanks for listening. kel

The shows have stopped filming just one week earlier than the scheduled hiatus. The ‘ratings’ on Hulu are fantastic. Both shows are consistently in the top 5 from everything I have read. You will not miss any shows…they have enough shows ‘in the can’ to air through September. Writers are continuing to write – so when they come back from the hiatus in August (hopeful the union disagreement can be worked out by then) they will not miss a beat. We won’t notice anything as viewers. I hope you keep watching…

1st question. Why does OLTL get treated like a unwanted step child. I keep seeing all these posts about AMC but not OLTL.

Am I talking about this post and did I ask for anyone else’s opinion. I’m talking in general and if you haven’t noticed your not very observant.

Gee…when you post this question on this post – yes, most people would assume you are talking about this post. And when you ask a question – yes, most people would assume you are asking for an opinion. If you weren’t talking about this post and weren’t actually wanting a response to your question – WHY are you here and WHY did you post it?

Sounds good. Get Carolyn Hennesy back if you can, but doing it solo is okay. As much as I loved the old podcast, new episodes went from once a month to once a year.

Jeff Kwatinetz sure has brass ones to subject himself to the wrath of the fans. I hope everyone is polite. Good for him! Taking the bull by the horns and talking to us directly. IMO, it shows just how much he is invested in making this thing work. I am very much looking forward to tuning in. I will try to call in as well.

Mr. Kwatinetz, you truly are my hero. You have done what most of us thought was impossible. You have brought back Agnes Nixon’s shows and are a guardian of her legacy. I know with all the recent developments you must be fielding more negative comments than you would like. I get worried too, we are all a little gun shy but I felt the need to tell you how grateful I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Congratulations to you, Michael. I am very glad that you will be doing this show. I know how big a fan you are and that as a fan, you will ask the questions the fans want to hear. I’m really excited about your new collaboration with TOLN. Cudos 😉

YES! I can hardly wait for this to air. People, keep watching both shows. It would be great if we could watch enough to suggest that maybe hour-length shows are warranted to make up for the 2-days of each show instead of 5 days each show. I think 2-days each show 1-hour shows would work. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

Your suggestion unfortunately, would put them right back where they were originally. I believe (and maybe someone can ask Jeff) that if we keep watching both shows (which I do!) eventually they will be increased either in length or episodes shown each week.

I will be anxiously awaiting to see what is in store for our shows. After watching since they 1st came on they have become my family. I am enjoying meeting the new members of the family & how they have grown up. Thank you so much for being my family back home again.

Yes remember to spread the word that we need our views back all of them & new ones too. Numbers need to continuously stay up in the 500,000’s. This is the number that shows the advertiser’s we are serious about our shows & if you can start purchasing products from these sponsors & let them know why you are taking the time to purchase their product. They are paying for our shows to be on. If everyone can get 1 person back or a new one to watch we will be in a position to ask for things. We as fans said that we would pay for our shows to be back then why are we complaining because of the prices. They have given us our shows back & they have given us 3 avenues of watching them. Right now they just can’t get any easier. Join all of us that currently watch everyday & if you want you can watch over & over on the weekends.

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.
