Michael can you ask Ginger about the rationale for the headwriter change at AMC?

I have been so pleasantly surprised by Marlene McPherson’s work at AMC (and have been hearing some concerning things about Chip Hayes from some former AMC writers).

Michael: Please ask Ginger how the viewer ratings have changed since AMC and OLTL changed from 4 days to 2 days airings vs. all the weeks episodes being released each Monday. Has it been a positive effect for PP or are there still issues that need to be addressed and tried out to gain more viewers watching online?

I would love to know if we can expect more returns from veterans, and in particular, if the Kane women (Kendall and Bianca) will be back in the future. Those short two scenes with them where we learned that Kendall is very ill can’t be all there is!

I know the focus will (and should) be on the current show but if there is time I would love to hear Ginger talk a little bit about her history with AMC. She was there forever (until it moved to L.A) and has seen a lot of ups and downs.

What were her favorite and least favorite periods, regimes etc.

How did she feel when the show was moved to L.A. and away from her?

Thanks.

Could you ask Ginger about Agnes Nixon’s involvement? I know we’ve heard that she is working as story consultant (for both shows, I believe, but particularly All My Children,) but never any details on how active a role that actually is. There has been speculation among fans that some stories (like the almost gothic Celia and her “Guardian” story as well as the focus on young love triangles) seems in keeping with some of Nixon’s classic AMC.

Thanks so much!

Michael could you please ask Ginger does anyone in Pine Valley dine anywhere at
all other than Jane’s Coffee Shop where the town’s characters evidently go for Breakfast, lunch, a quick informal business meeting, a light dinner, a snack, or to meet for Coffee. In other words, any chance of a third set possibly being built in the future?

Johnny they also go, for more fancy meals, at The Pines (at least that’s what it’s called in the credits…) We’ve seen it a few times–no idea if it’s connected to the Pine Valley Inn, or not. 😛 Regardless, I get your point–I understand the use of less sets, but… Though for a while AMC on ABC was driving me crazy with everything being done at ConFusion or occasionally the odd yacht club.

Yes Eric you make a good point, for a while they were always at the Yact club and at ConFusion –
If you go to You Tube and watch the Tornado episodes from the late 90’s, the sets were so impressive and the show was so great. Now, on line, the show is a sad memory of what once was. The lack of sets to me, is apparent – I don’t wish to dwell on the negative but the glory days of AMC seem to be in the past. I sincerely wish that the show could bring back Higher production values. I don’t have a problem with the actors at all, they are doing their level best with not terribly compelling scripts nor sets to work with.

Would love to find out from Ms Smith, what is the biggest difference being involve in production in television broadcast and now with online broadcast. Are the expectations the same from the powers that be or do they differ? Is there more pressure online or in network tv for u to deliver?

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!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

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…)
