On the launch of TOLN SOAPS first BlogTalkRadio show, and his upcoming appearance Kwatinetz related “I’m very much looking forward to chatting with Mr. Fairman and especially hearing directly from fans, without whom we wouldn’t have these shows. 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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

In My Daughter’s Double Life, previously titled, Fatal Following, the story follows Heather, a single mom who is desperate to find her daughter Ally when the teenager goes missing.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
