WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

Photo: ABC

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.

I am probably being over-sensitive, but I thought it was in poor taste that Strahan mentioned that his show now has “AMC’s” time slot. Does he not know this is still a sore spot with “AMC” and “OLTL” fans? But, I appreciate the show giving us a mini reunion. Since Cady was there, I would have loved to have seen her with Michael E. Knight.

Pretty bad show!! Great seeing them all but it was like they were making fun of the show with those recreations. How many times did S\S say something about fans!?? ABC get the hint even from your ‘talent’ the fans want AMC back in the air!!

I too felt as if they were ‘mocking’ the show and I didn’t care for that aspect of it – they need to bring ALL MY CHILDREN back, plain and simple.

Miss my OLTL so much. Not the same watching GH. When I see Roger Howarth I think there’s Todd and when I see Michael Easton I naturally see McBain. Makes it hard to watch.

THAT’S the way Jack/Erica should have ended. Thank you Walt & Susan for caring for your fanbase since AMC writers did NOT. Loved seeing them together again..

some of the amc characters should pay GH a visit, especially Susan Lucci, in fact, the time now would be perfect with the reason health scare Susan had, Erica could be visiting Port Charles when she starts feeling not so good and is taken to GH were she’s having similar symptoms that Susan had, so she’s hospitalized and of course she comes out ok, but while recuperating she runs into Anna Devane, and meets other characters and some fun ensues. in fact even before Erica has her surgery she insist David Hayward operate on her, and guest who he would… Read more »

I feel sad for AMC fans on one hand because it has to still sting that their show isn’t on where it should be. On the other hand, I think they’re lucky because they keep getting little reunion spots on various shows over the years. I wish it would happen for some of my favorite shows. I long for that. I long for a great big show that celebrates all the shows that have departed and those four that are still with us. One can dream.

Damn……this was great. Even so, it brought tears to my eyes. I really still miss this show.

The Talk also does this sometimes with the Proctor and Gamble shows. I’d love to know what the ratings are when they have these soap reunion shows. If they can do a Brady Bunch reunion show and a Downton Abbey movie why can’t the soaps show Erica Kane and the Martins over a couple of days with the grand kids. We’d see Erica and Jack in their twilight years. Learn if Kendall and Zak stayed together. Watch JR mourn Adam. It would be so moving. I guess the networks don’t want to feed the appetite for soaps again.

All My Children and ‘The Bay’ Star Eric Nelsen in the Cast of ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1883’

On Thursday, the full cast was announced for the highly-anticipated Yellowstone prequel that will bow on Paramount+ beginning on December 19th.

The Taylor Sheridan drama tells the tale of the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one family fleeing poverty to seek a better future in America’s promised land — Montana.

According to Deadline, in the cast is none other than The Bay’s Daytime Emmy-winner, Eric Nelsen (Daniel Garrett), who was also part of the cast of Prospect Park’s reboot of All My Children as AJ Chandler.

In 1883, look for Nelsen to take on the role of Ennis, a young, handsome cowboy who agrees to help escort a group of inexperienced men, women and children north to find a home.

The series also stars: Billy Bob Thornton, Faith Hill, Gratiela Brancusi, Sam Elliott, Stephanie Nur, and Tim McGraw to name but a few.

So, will you be checking out Eric in 1883? Comment below.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
