(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Soap Opera Network first reported news of a Josh Duhamel return being in the works at "All My Children" in May following the 38-year-old actor making curious comments relating to the cancelled ABC soap on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," Twitter and Facebook.

ABC Soaps in Depth reports that Gina Tognoni (Kelly) and Tom Degnan (Joey) will be both be leaving Llanview behind later this summer as their storyline winds down.

After news broke today that ABC would be bumping "General Hospital" from its long time 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT timeslot beginning in September 2012 in favor of a new Katie Couric talk show, the network was forced to calm the nerves of fans who are still reeling from the cancellations of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." Unfortunately, the network is just delaying the inevitable to placate fans from believing that their favorite soap could be next.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- While "The Chew" and "The Revolution" have yet to debut nor have "All My Children" or "One Life to Live" even taped their last episodes, the ABC Television Network is already making moves with its fall 2012 daytime schedule. The network announced today plans to launch a Katie Couric hosted syndicated daytime talk show which provides the failed evening news host with a hefty $20 million a year salary plus ownership of her program and reunites her with failed network executive and CEO Jeff Zucker, who will be an executive producer with Couric on the yet-to-be-named series that will be based in New York and produced in conjunction with Disney/ABC. The show will take over the 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT timeslot from the networks "General Hospital" beginning in September 2012 after the network returns the hour to its ABC affiliates no earlier than that time.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- While "Days of our Lives" has still not officially confirmed that actor Freddie Smith has joined the cast of the NBC daytime drama series, Soap Opera Network confirmed two weeks ago that Smith had signed on with the show and will be portraying the role of Sonny and we can now confirm his first airdate will be Thursday, June 23. If that was't all, we can also confirm that Sonny is in fact one of Adrienne and Justin Kiriakis' (Judi Evans and Wally Kurth) son's. To be precise, presumably the name "Sonny" is a take-off from their biological son Jackson (the two have three other children either adopted or birthed from other relationships). Look for Sonny's return to Salem to be a welcome surprise for his parents when he reunites with the two at the Cheatin' heart.According to sources Smith will share his first scenes with Kate...
