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!

My Comcast does not carry TVGN..
Hope HuLu carries it, but doubt it..

My sister lives in Mi and has comcast which carries tvgn…id call the cable co. and ask them why some areas carry it and yours dont if you havent already?

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.

Will somebody please upload the special on YouTube? And will somebody upload the first 18 years of DAYS on YouTube? LOL!

I noticed the special is uploaded on youtube, but part 1 (9:55) of 6 parts is missing.

I found it.

It’s there now…just checked.
Thanks for the tip…I’ll watch it there!

Hey thanks I will check it out tonight, at least that way I can see the special, I don’t receive the TV Guide Network on my cable system.

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?

Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.
