Before you head to bed tonight, or stay up with anticipation and excitement that in only a few more hours brand new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live will be posted for the first time in their new home – Hulu.com, NBC Today’s Mara Schiavocampo’s report looks at the behind-the-scenes returns of the shows including clips of the production in action in Connecticut in this Xfinity video!

As well, the segment look at the ABC finale cliffhanger of All My Children, where someone is shot after JR fires a bullet from his gun! But just who is it? Will it be revealed in short order on all-new episodes?

And while the NBC report also reminds us that Susan Lucci, the most heralded name in AMC history as Erica Kane, is not back at the moment as part of the reboot, One Life to Live’s major star, Erika Slezak (Viki) is … and so is Viki’s on-screen feud with Dorian played by Robin Strasser.  (would be nice if the voice-over announce on this piece would pronounce “Slezak” and “Strasser” properly, but that’s a whole other story!)

All My Children legacy stars, Darnell Williams and Debbi Morgan (Jessie and Angie Hubbard) are interviewed for this video package celebrating the returns of the series by letting everyone know how excited the fans truly are:  “They are counting down! We have our own countdown for the show, and they are counting down too!” Darnell added, “It just makes us feel like it’s going to be POW!”

Although this report also called AMC and OLTL “web series”, it has been made very clear by Jeff Kwatinetz and Rich Frank of Prospect Park, that they do not view these two soaps as “web series” but fully realized television style productions. This video also talks about shows moving into the digital age and keeping up with the time,  and series with dedicated fan bases like soap operas! Watch the video report below, and let us know what you thought of it?

Just finished watching both shows and it’s great they are back. It’s fun to see all the familiar faces. This is huge for the future of television. Love all the references to new technology. Both shows have a different vibe than the ABC versions. They both had a few words not allowed on broadcast TV. The OLTL club scenes were a bit too much.

Already both shows have had more location shots than ABC did in a whole year. AMC has great credits and theme song. Love the ‘on the next episode.” ABC used to do that until they needed time for more ads. OLTL needs different credits and theme song, they not so good, and include on the next episode. Oh and TSJ TSJ TSJ! That was kept pretty quiet. Good move. It’s nice to see that PP listens to the fans.

I just watched OLTL, mixed feelings, not sure it was that great. Maybe they were just getting people acquainted with the characters but loved the appearance at the end of the show.

I just watched both shows and wow! In terms of which one will last, One Life To Live unless the writers at AMC change their tune. I don’t want to give anything away, but AMC felt jumbled and disconnected. OLTL had perfect flow with the writing and the story they set up and picked up with from the end last year. The last scene on OLTL will have you jumping for joy at the future of the show!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
