This is potentially great news! I’m still waiting for some kind of definite confirmation from Prospect Park, or at least ABC/D. Why the silence?

Yeah! They should be shouting it from the rooftops if it’s a go so why aren’t they? I don’t trust them!

woo freakin’ hoo! Vincent Irizarry is certainly one of THE best of AMC! Great news and very exciting to think this might actually happen this time around!

As always, thanks, Michael for keeping us informed. I know I’m watching any PP news with great anticipation.

Now when they announce Erika Slezak signs on for OLTL you’ll probably hear me yell “Woo Hoo” from my home 😀

This is wonderful news if the show does indeed become reality this time. With Lindsay Hartley signed on also, I would love to see David & Cara together again with their baby! I hope Prospect Park can make a go of this.

This is all very hopeful, so I am cautiously optimistic. I will certainly look forward to seeing Dr. David again, as he is a great character, and played so very well by Vincent Irizarry, as only he can do!!! My fingers are soooooo crossed for both shows to come to fruition on the internet !!!!!

I think ABC was short sighted and showed how little regard they have for the fans by cancelling AMC & OLTL. I have not watched any of the replacement shows, nor will I. Which means I don’t see any of their commercials for their nighttime shows nor those of their sponsors. Because I don’t know what shows are on ABC everything I watch is either on CBS, TNT, USA, PBS, & NBC.

It would be interesting to see their daytime and nighttime numbers and see if others have also turned them off.

I’m being cautious on this news, I hope they pull it off but it won’t be the same..I’m hoping eventually if they do get it up and running they can get it on cable….also what happens to the Characters like John, Todd, Starr on GH? I want them back on OLTL but I understand the actors now have contracts with GH/ABC how does this work? Things there are messed up….this time around its going to be easier to get AMC up and running instead of OLTL< that ending wasnt messed with, RC totally messed up Jolie and Tea/Victor etc

I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer but we have heard this same news before in July 2011. There has to be an official joint statement from PP and ABC/D before I believe this!

I would much rather hear the news that Vincent has signed with GH. That would be a “sure thing” that we’d actually get to see him on our screens again. I still don’t trust PP to pull this off, and really, I doubt if I would bother going to my computer every day to watch a much-shortened program. PP is making all the right noises right now, but they also did that when they first bought the rights to the shows, and look how well that turned out. It only tied up some actors and prevented them from going to… Read more »

I would have loved him on GH also but they are pretty full up over there now. I think with all the news of producers and a few actors that I have faith they got their stuff together. I’m keeping a positive outlook until I hear differently 🙂 Keep the faith people. We need these shows back for the actors and crew.

Exciting news. Two great actors! What a great start! Sign up Debbie Morgan! Susan, even though is an icon, she can be recurring — her storylines were inane, unless her character is tweeked; her spunk can remain but do something. Bring back the Martins — Tad and newbies as his chidren. Bianca and newbies as her children! And Kendal and newbies as her teen sons! Can I have Dixie too! And another twister can hit town and Ryan and another suitor can come back to save the day!

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.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
