The drama continued on the third installment of the revival of All My Children on Hulu and iTunes today! And as the story picked up, we learned more of the back-story of the five years away from Pine Valley that affected so many of the veteran central characters the night JR fired the gunshot at the Chandler soiree’!

First and foremost, Dr. Evil, David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry) made his way back to Pine Valley and headed straight for the hospital where he realized that it was Angie (Debbi Morgan) who helped him get out of jail early!  David then learned from Angie that Cara (Lindsay Hartley) had miscarried their child.  However, Cara didn’t want David to apparently ever know what happened to their baby!

Meanwhile, Cassandra (Sal Stowers) is being beaten by Vlad (Alfredo Diaz) and held against her will, and next we learned kind of, sort of, what happened to Kendall!  Zach (Thorsten Kaye) revealed his casino business and dealings had to do with problems in his relationship, and now it looks as if its caused trouble for Cassandra!

Pete (Rob Scott Wilson) and Celia (Jordan Lane Price) had a lot of airtime as fans as fans are learning this is one of the new young couples the show is pushing front and center!

I have to agree…really enjoying AMC – it is soooo improved!

I completely agree! AMC is back and has truly nailed the look & feel of Pine Vallley! Pete and Celeia have the possibility if being the next Cliff and Nina or another great AMC supercouple. Great to see Zach back, the tortured hero. Adam & Brooke are the perfect Joe & Ruth for the best generation. The actress that plays Moranda reminds Mendoza much of a young Eden Reogel when she started on the show. Can’t rave enough about AMC – so glad it is back and well written/produced.

I am in love with the show more then ever. I am hoping we are not going to deal with a rape storyline right now,I think that would be to dark. I turned away when that monster pervert removed his belt.

AMC is a lot better than OLTL at the moment but that could change. Both are entertaining but i dont feel addicted just yet. Will watch about a dozen episodes before ill see if ill stick around. My friend Jim remains in hospital and hasnt seen them yet. My husband likes Rama and OLTL! But we both hope it gets better like it was on abc! Kelli doing best job as Dani so far…almost emmy worthy!

I don’t buy the explanation as to why Kendall and Zach aren’t together, not after all they’ve gone through as a couple. Otherwise, the show is very good.

So happy to be able to watch AMC and OLTL again! Great to see so many old faces (Francesca James! Joe McDonnell!) If/when they bring Tad back, my soap-watching life will be complete, lol. Loving both shows, the stories are promising, the pace is great and I look forward to watching for many more years!

To me, and please don’t gang up on me, it feels like a show called “Some of My Children” instead of “All My Children”. After watching this show for, hate to admit it, over thirty years, I miss seeing Tad Martin, I do miss Erica Kane, and I miss Krystal but I realize that time has gone by, new characters have moved in, have to give them a chance. It’s ever so slightly difficult to get some real storylines moving with 25 minute episodes – I am not complaining, I love the show and the characters and I can accept the introduction of new people in town, some of it just feels a little distant to me like, here’s Adam and here’s Brooke but they don’t seem to have much to say or do so here’s Petey and obviously they are pushing him at us like crazy as he obviously will be pursuing new cute gal Celia – here’s Dr. Joe just for ol’ times sake – so far, the most intrique that I can see is who is Dixie visiting in the hospital, is it her son J.R. who may have been injured by his own gun (?) or is it Tad ~ they keep showing his photo so there must be some inside word that Michael Knight will eventually join the cast – and I hope he does, they need him and they really DO need more familiar faces – please, I love the show, have given it the highest rating on HULU PLUS, these are just observations and feelings.

Johnny, I totally agree if the show were longer, maybe we could see our favorite TOP characters back. I am enjoying the pleasure of seeing Dr. Joe Martin, Adam and Brooke, Vilan David, sweet Dixie, beautiful Angie, and my favorite hilarious Opal (for starters). Kudos to these actors to be faithful to AMC and making it a HUGE Hit on Hulu (My gratitude for pulling it all together). Lets show our support by watching AMC to keep up its continuing this success! I would say “Eat your heart out ABC” and personally, when AMC went off, I tuned out. I have not watched any of those replacement shows = not even a glimpse as I am a true soap addict!
I did get involved with Days and General Hospital,unfortunately, they come on at the same time in Tucson. Thankyou for making a semi-retired woman happy once again.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”
