Why on ABC talk shows…fans and actors complain about talk shows replacing soaps but then hypocrite actors appear on them and the hypocrite fans who claim to ban watching talk will turnaround and watch using excuses that they are supporting the actor on them? Im not going to stop watching any network…all shows get cancelled on any network and so will online shows. Besides AMC and OLTL had amazing long network runs and there were other cancelled soaps that never lasted as long: Another World, The Doctors, Ryans Hope, Passions, Santa Barbara and Edge of Night. We all want shows… Read more »

Try reading the lawsuit you would understand why ABC is doing that!!! Stop calling ppl hypocrites when all you do is look like an Uninformed fool! BTW Jim maybe if the fans of those shows stood up and did what WE did they might still have their shows! Jim you really need to quit with the “Older ppl don’t know how or they don’t have internet” Most older ppl do KNOW how to use the internet to keep in contact with Family that lives elsewhere! If they go on cable at sometime in the future GREAT if NOT that is… Read more »

Some of us did try to save those shows to no avail…if most of us had internet back then it might have helped. And i wasnt talking about all older people…i was talking about those who dont have internet who still would like to watch these shows but cant…and i have nothing against watching these shows on the internent…my suggestion to hopefully get a cable channel to air the soaps as well, ive contacted several, which if works out could help PP even more in the long run.

I would like to watch these shows just like you can but unfortunately my browsers too old, i cant afford to change my computer, and it doesnt support hulu. Im disabled, and i cant go do bowling or golf, and thats why i stay home much of my life watching these soaps and i hated to see them cancelled. I wasnt saying they shouldnt be on the internet…i was suggesting more possible outlets for people like me to enjoy them. Ive mailed out a half dozen letters to different cable places hoping to convince them to air repeats shortly after… Read more »

Actors sign contracts and they include promoting the show that pays them, no matter what the venue. I don’t blame the actors for appearing, but that doesn’t mean I’ll be watching those shows.

ABC is only doing it because of the lawsuit anyway and I’m sure they will do as little advertising as they can get away with.

Because why not promote the show on any venue they can?

And I hate the complaint “They should have put it on a cable network!”. Obviously a cable network wasn’t interested. So in a choice between the soaps on the Internet and no soaps, I vote Internet.

This wasnt a complaint…i wasnt saying it should be on cable and not the internet…i was suggesting cable also carry the show for those who cant watch on internet for whatever reason. The more outlets the better. Im writing to cable stations to see about them airing the repeats shortly after airing on the internet. So whats wrong with wanting more outlets for these shows!

I am one of those boycotting abc/d. I don’t watch those other shows even when my soap stars are on. That is my choice. I don’t fault anyone else for choosing a different boycott strategy. I don’t fault you for not boycotting at all. I am glad you ‘moved on’ from these shows. I chose to fight and am going to enjoy their return. PP is trying to find a cable channel that will air them…maybe you know someone who owns one that will do this? And there are many older soap fans who know how to use the computer… Read more »

I wasnt griping…i was trying to make suggestions to help those who cant watch on the internet…i am one of them. My browser is too old to support certain things like hulu! And ive written to several cable stations hoping to convince them to carry these shows for some of us not lucky like you who can watch on the internet! I cant afford to update my computer…i just dont have the spare cash…im not young anymore and unfortunatly disabled…i miss these damn shows just as much as you and anybody else and i keep working on ways to increase… Read more »

Okay Jim, thanks for responding.

You say your ‘browser’ is too old. What do you mean by that? Are you talking about internet explorer?

Jim – You’re right, many of us have fought to get these shows back. But we DID win. We wanted them back in any format and we got it. We’ve been fighting for 2 years and were well aware of (and happy with) the possibility of these shows going online. A cable channel can’t just air repeats. They have to pay PP in order to do so. Considering no cable channel wanted these shows to begin with (yes, they were all asked/begged), I doubt it’s going to happen unless these shows are very successful. The problem is these shows were… Read more »

Thanks 4 reply. Cable comes with my rent fee and if cable goes up so does my rent…internet i pay extra for thats not included in rent, and my internet charge has gone up as well. Hopefully when i renew my lease agreement in 2015…i just signed a 2 year one in Jan. ill be able to work out some changes with my landlord!

To Jimh,

I read your comment about your browser not supporting Hulu- this is likely due to a plug in within the browser. Try downloading ” Google Chrome” or “Mozilla Firefox”. Just type in the name of one of these browsers in a search, both are free downloads. You can use any of the browsers for the internet. All you need to do is follow the prompts during the download. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the update, Michael, so we can set our DVR’s. wondering why the national promos have not surfaced on the major networks; only on CW, etc…….anyone know? Or did ABC (or the others for that matter) put the Cabash on promoting soaps elsewhere?

I am still running into people who have NO idea this is happening……

I actually saw a promo for the new soaps on ABC DISNEYS SOAPNET this a.m.

HOW come we got nothing from the amc and oltl party i looked at this site son soc sod and i got nothing only we love soaps that i saw something on with less than 4 days to go i think the soap websites should have been all over this it was a big night and we got nothing.

I completely agree Ladylove! I just said that to a friend of mine on how these sites including this one have nothing about the last 4 days before the airing of these 2 BELOVED and ICONIC shows! You think they would be all over this but I guess if it is not about GH it’s no big deal!

I’m confused as to why ABC is having any of the soap stars on their shows. Especially the Chew which replaced AMC. I won’t be watching The View or the Chew because I have banned ABC. I will, however, catch all the other network shows. I can’t wait for Monday! Hulu here I come.

Well, I just watched the View for them, but don’t watch the show otherwise. ABC is promoting these Online versions as they get a piece of the pie. As far as Tuc Watkins being on The Chew – there’s no way in hell I’d watch that, but I know he has to it’s part of his job. Bring them on – can’t wait til Monday!!

Watch all but the Chew. Never have & never will. Thank you Michael. Some of this I had not heard. I saw Erika-you know she is my favorite-on The View. I broke my pledge not to watch ABC except GH. Nothing can keep me from watching Erika. Again thank you for the info,

i do not understand the actors…going onto shows on ABC when this company was responsible for the demise of AMC & OLTL….I am still boycotting the replacement shows that ABC put on in place of these soaps. ABC has screwed the loyal viewers of the soaps & now some of the actors r going to do these shows, like the Chew. I am not impressed by the thought process some of the soap stars r showing…why would u help out ABC….the actors should NEVER APPEAR ON ANY ABC PROGRAMMING, ESPECIALLY THE SHOWS THAT TOOK THEIR PLACE ON THE DAYTIME ABC… Read more »

It isn’t up to the actors which media outlets are used to promote the shows. They have no say in that. Also, it’s been the ABC viewers who have supported them for all these years. Why wouldn’t they want to tell them the shows live on and have moved to a new home since it’s that EXACT audience that watched them for over 20 years?

Don’t you just find it funny they don’t have anyone from AMC on the Chew? I mean imagine how awkward that would be.

For anyone who has a slow internet connection or who’s computer and or operating system/browsers or etc. cause them not to be able to watch these show… please check your libraries. They usually all have computers and you can use headsets and they may have sufficient bandwith to see the shows on Hulu. Remember on Hulu you can watch them whenever. Head there any day of the week and catch up on them. Maybe there will be some viewing parties in various cities,,, people could meet-up and watch together. Also there might be some internet cafes that the shows could… Read more »

Personally, I think it is brilliant having some of the actors appear on ABC shows. It helps reinforce what a stupid move it was by the network to cancel the shows in the first place. Whether or not ABC profits monetarily from these appearances is small potatoes compared to reaching potential viewers and helping build an audience for both shows. THAT will keep them filming and alive. I don’t normally watch The View, I am not home at the time it airs, but did record it. I watched the segment and then turned it off. Erika Slezak looks fabulous. Dare… Read more »

There seems to be alot of interest in the OLTL and AMC’s new start and new format. Please people quit your bashing of ABC/D and be glad 2 of your beloved Daytime programs are returning at all. ABC/D started the mess but may reconsider if there is enough viewers. The number of viewers was not the problem it was that certain People at ABC in the Executive role (If I remember correctly) did not want to do “Soaps”. Actors have to do what they have to do in promoting even if it is on a program that ABC/D re[laced them… Read more »

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
