So now it’s all making sense, right? The fantastic Oprah Show was looking for the ultimate soap fans on their website earlier last week, and now it has been announced that on the February 9th edition of The Oprah Winfrey Show that many soap opera legends will be her guests, with a full hour devoted to the soaps!

Leading the list of names is none other than The Young and the Restless, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), but tonight we are also hearing that All My Children’s, Susan Lucci (Erica), Darnell Williams (Jesse) Debbi Morgan (Angie) and Michael E. Knight (Tad) will also be part of the special episode.

If that’s not enough, there is more big news.  We are hearing that General Hospital’s Tony Geary and Genie Francis (Luke and Laura) will be re-united on Wednesday’s soap-studded line-up as well! Make sure to check times and local listings in your area! It’s all to much for us soapers to take!

How about Victoria Wyndam, Erika Slezak, Kim Zimmer, Deidre Hall, David Canary, Suzanne Rogers Susan Flannery, and Eileen Fulton.

I wish all the soaps would take a cue from OLTL. Vicky, Dorian and Echo are so enjoyable to watch. I can’t get enough There is something to be said for talent.

I hope they have some of ATWT Vets like Larry Bryggman,, Don Hastings,, Kathryn Hays, Eileen Fulton, Marie Masters, Liz Hubbard, Colleen Zenk,Anthony Herrarra, etc.then i hope she has a show with the most popular younger group, especially with the sweet and gorgeous Van Hansis who I’m still missing terribly!

That really stinks…not only were we cheated out of a good ending for a 54 year old soap, but now we’re still being dissed by omission.What a shame and a disgrace…..ATWT had some of the best actors thriugh the years.I’m surprised at Oprah , but I guess the old saying is so true ….out of sight , out of mind!

I watched this today,it was all about AMC and a little of Y&R,,, I thought it was going to be about the 6 soaps thats still on the air?

I’m sorry, but I feel that La Lucci is sooooo overhyped. So she’s been on AMC for a hundred years… big deal! The only notoriety she had was not getting an Emmy so many years in a row. If they are deeming “legends” by that statistic, then Melody Thomas Scott should be one, too! She is, without a doubt, the most overlooked performer in daytime. She should soooooo get an Emmy nom this year for lead actress. I will boycott the show if she isn’t, and I’m not even close to kidding! Seriously… I’ll go straight for the Vodka.

Even though Y&R is not a show I watch often, i do think Jeanne Cooper deserved more air time.Sad that she was left to the end.And while luke and laura might have been the super couple all those years ago….it was Luke and Reid from ATWT who became the super couple in 2010!!!!

I couldn’t agree more. Shame on Oprah, and her staffers, for sticking Jeanne Cooper at the end of the show – for approximately 2 minutes – and severely editing her segment down to a bunch of nonsense. But, by all means, let’s parade around the completely overexposed and overhyped Luke, Laura and Erika and her has-been husbands. YAWN! A real travesty.

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!

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…)
