It wouldve been nice if some former soap stars of cancelled soaps from the last 30 years were interviewed and gave their opinions on what they think got their shows cancelled and what they think of the renewed popularity of the remaining 4. Former stars like Vicki Wyndam ex AW, Eileen Fulton ex ATWT, Micheal Levin(is that right) ex Ryans Hope, Jada Rowland ex The Doctors/Secret Storm and Ann Flood ex E.O.N. and maybe a few others if available! I mean it would be very interesting to hear from a blast from the past and hear what they have to say! imo!

I did call in, Mn. does not carry TVGN, at least not in my area and I’m in the metropolitan area..
I was told that TVGN was once carried by Comcast, but it was dropped..

I’m in the MPLS metro too, and it pisses me off that we don’t get TVGN! It would be nice to be able to see Y&R and B&B reruns when the shows get pre-empted. I’m sure there’s some legal BS that keeps them from showing it around here, but it’s the customers who suffer. 🙁

Michael, any chance you could post the show on your site? I do not have TVGN either.

Many thanks if you are able to.

I think it’s already been removed from You Tube, due to copyright infringements. Too bad, I really wanted to see this show. Does anyone know where else it can be seen?

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…)
