All My Children

Daytime soap opera airing on Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet.

Each week Entertainment Weekly puts together "The Bullseye," a gathering of images in which "pop culture news that was right on target" for the week comes together leading to the "events that missed the mark." For its October 7, 2011 issue, the magazine placed a "Bullseye" on "The Chew's" Mario Batali.

"All My Children's" television run comes to an end, "The Chew" debuts in its place, and "One Life to Live" asks fans to sample Ford's wiener.
"All My Children," aired its series finale on Friday, September 23, 2011 with its largest weekly audience in over four years (since week of August 20, 2007), its largest single day episode in more than 4 1/2 years (since the May 11, 2007 episode) and tied its highest weekly household rating in four years (since week of September 24, 2007). The canceled ABC soap managed to place second in households for the first time in 16 years (since week of July 10, 1995) and placed second in viewers for the first time in nearly seven years (since week of December 6, 2004).
Although ABC did not expect "The Chew" to outperform "All My Children" every day nor did they expect it to beat it in the long-run, after all the ultimate goal is to save money by producing a cheaper show, the network should still be a little worried about "Chew's" performance after three days of ratings data have been released.

Earlier today, Soap Opera Digest shocked the soap world when it reported that after five years on "Days of our Lives," actor James Scott (EJ DiMera) would soon be vacating Salem after a contract dispute with show producers Corday Productions and Sony Pictures Television hit a snag, now hours later like sands through the hourglass, Scott's "DAYS" have changed.
One day on the air and "The Chew" is already beating "All My Children's" most recent performance in Total Viewers and the key sales demographic of Women 18-49. The new food and lifestyle talk show also beat the soaps season to date performance for the 2010-2011 television season that concluded on Friday, September 16.

Nearly three months after licensing the rights to "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" from ABC, Prospect announces the launching of a new web channel, The Online Network, which will air both soaps along with the upstart company's other current and future programming.
"All My Children's" replacement show "The Chew" debuts today, just three days after "AMC" aired its final episode on ABC, and I can't help myself in wishing it would just go away. No, it isn't the show or what it is all about. In a perfect world I'd care to watch it from time to time, after all we all have to cook good and healthy meals don't we? But it is the way the network went about handling "The Chew" which included non-stop advertising during "AMC's" final weeks on television along with non-stop advertising on soap opera centered websites including Soap Opera Network that I find myself saying "what a way to spit on your audience."
The 25th Annual Broadway Fleamarket sponsored by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS took place today and several of daytime's biggest stars were on hand as celebrity guests including stars from "One Life to Live" such as Kristen Alderson (Starr Manning), Andrew Trischitta (Jack Manning), Gina Tognoni (ex-Kelly Cramer), Sean Ringgold (Shaun Evans), Ilene Kristen (Roxy Balsom) and even former cast member Judith Light (ex-Karen Wolek). Also in attendance was former "Guiding Light" actor Ron Raines (ex-Alan Spaulding), who is currently appearing in previews for the Broadway production of "Follies." Raines' former "Light" co-star Marj Dusay (ex-Alexandra Spaulding) was scheduled to appear but had to cancel due to illness. Also scheduled was "As The World Turns" actresses Eileen Fulton (ex-Lisa Grimaldi) and Ellen Dolan (Margo Hughes). Soap Opera Network spoke with a few of the stars and learned some interesting tidbits, one of which being that Ringgold received his offer from Prospect Park on Friday and he's since decided to continue with the show when it moves to the web in January along with "All My Children."
This week has been full of well deserved tributes, accolades and goodbyes to a 41-year old television institution, "All My Children." Lost in the avalanche of interviews with the actors who have contributed their talents to the popular soap opera may have been several of the shows most popular actors sharing if they have been asked to follow it to the internet and if they're willing to. The production company that has licensed their soap opera, Prospect Park, has recently stepped up talks with "AMC's" cast members locking in deals with Cameron Mathison (Ryan) and Lindsay Hartley (Cara). Where do "AMC's" other popular stars, including their biggest star Susan Lucci (Erica), stand on moving to the net? Continue reading to find out.
