(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As in previous weeks, ratings for soaps are unavailable at press time but the numbers are out for talk shows including “The Chew,” “The Talk” and “The View.”

Per Marc Berman at TV Media Insights, ABC’s “The Chew” has reached its largest audiences since premiere week (week of September 26-30, 2011) in viewers while remaining flat in Women 25-54, Women 18-49 and Women 18-34 compared to its post premiere week averages.

Ratings for recently introduced ABC daytime talk show The Chew remained consistent from one week earlier, still trailing former occupant All My Children by noticeable proportions.  Based on the Live Plus Same Day data from Nielsen Media Research for the week of Oct. 17 (week four), The Chew averaged 1.94 million viewers, with no change demographically.  One year earlier, long-running scripted serial All My Children averaged 2.31 million viewers, with the demographic breakdown compared to The Chew as follows:

All My Children (ABC) – Week of 10/18/10
Viewers: 2.31 million, Women 25-54: 1.2/ 8, Women 18-49: 0.8/ 6,
Women 18-34: 0.5/ 3

The Chew (ABC) – Week of 10/17/11
Viewers: 1.94 million, Women 25-54: 0.9/ 5, Women 18-49: 0.6/ 4,
Women 18-34: 0.4/ 2

All My Children Advantage
Viewers: + 19 percent, Women 25-54: +33, Women 18-49: +33,
Women 18-34: +25

The Chew, of course, is cheaper to produce than All My Children, hence the programming change.  But sometimes the value of the audience is more important than the raw dollar figures, and the pending departure of One Life to Live for another talker, The Revolution, is also not likely to resonate in a daypart gutted with similar appeal programming.

Disney/ABC Television Group

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Since we reported an update to ABC’s decision to hand over the “General Hospital” timeslot in September 2012 back to its affiliates in the Disney/ABC Television Groups plan to launch a new talk show hosted by Katie Couric, fans have been up in arms over the possible demise of a daytime institution (on top of the demises of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live”) after a number of them started calling their local ABC affiliates and reportedly were told that the network had informed them they would be pulling “GH” off the ABC Daytime schedule as early as June 2012. Now an ABC Daytime representative tells Soap Opera Network that those rumors are just “not true.”

“This is not true…our ABC stations have not been told that the ‘General Hospital’ time slot will end in June. The confusion probably lies in giving back the ‘GH’ ‘Time Period’ to the stations come September 2012,” said the rep who reminds us of the following statement issued back in June of this year:

“The announcement does not mean the inevitable cancellation of ‘General Hospital.’ Rather it means that in September 2012 we will program our daytime block with our three strongest shows.  We’ll have options for the Daytime daypart just like we do each year with Primetime.  We believe in all of our shows and the ones that our viewers want, will be the ones that continue. There are MANY options that could happen…only time will tell…we are simply giving ourselves options for the future, which is a smart way to do business.  The best way to ensure a favorite show stays on the air is to watch it.”

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As Soap Opera Network first reported yesterday evening, Lisa De Cazotte has been hired to fill the shoes of the departing Noel Maxam as Co-Executive Producer of NBC’s “Days of our Lives.” In a statement issued earlier today to the press, Co-EP Greg Meng confirmed that De Cazotte will be joining him as Co-Executive Producer and that, “[Executive Producer] Ken Corday is excited to have Lisa join the ‘Days of our Lives’ family.”

The change from Maxam to De Cazotte is effective immediately.

De Cazotte was the Executive Producer of “Passions” for the show’s entire run (July 5, 1999 – August 7, 2008). This reunites her with former “Passions” writers and current  “DAYS” Co-Head Writers Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr. and Marlene McPherson.

De Cazotte began her soap opera career as an intern for “One Life To Live” in the early 1980′s and worked her way up to Coordinating Producer before leaving in 1991 to join “Santa Barabara” as a Producer. When “Santa Barbara” ended in 1993, she joined “All My Children” where she was a Coordinating Producer and later Supervising Producer. In 1996, De Cazotte left “AMC” to help start NBC’s new soap opera “Sunset Beach” where she worked as a Producer and Supervising Producer. In 1998, De Cazotte was chosen to be the Executive Producer of another new NBC soap, “Passions.” After “Passions” ended, De Cazotte was name the Executive Producer for the second season of SOAPnet’s “General Hospistal: Night Shift” (July 22, 2008 – October 21, 2008). In 2009, she returned to “All My Children” as a Producer and worked there for a year.

Maxam joined “DAYS” as a Producer/Director in August 2007. In late 2008, Maxam was promoted to Supervising Producer. Beginning his daytime career with “The Young and the Restless” in 1997 as an Associate Director, Maxam directed a number of episodes at the drama series starting in 1999 until his departure in August 2007 to join “DAYS.” He was named Co-Executive Producer along with Meng in June 2011 in what producers called a “reboot” of the series.



Disney/ABC Television Group

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — With the cancellations of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” back in April it was unclear at the time as to where their replacement shows “The Chew” and “The Revolution” would film their daily episodes. Now with “Chew” filming in New York and soon “The Revolution” set to begin filming in New York as well, Soap Opera Network has learned that ABC Daytime is shifting much of its operations to New York City including talent management and media relations.

Along with the behind the scenes shift to New York, look for Katie Couric‘s new syndicated talk show to be filmed there as well. As previously reported, Couric’s new show will replace “General Hospital” in the 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM CT/PT timeslot as ABC is set to hand over the hour back to its affiliates beginning in September 2012 in hopes that their affiliates will choose to pick up what the company deems to be a more profit sharing program.

With just three hours left available to program effective September 2012, “General Hospital,” which will be the last remaining regularly scheduled daytime soap still airing on ABC and the last daytime series (scripted or otherwise) produced by ABC filming in Los Angeles, will be fighting for its survival in the coming months as it goes head-to-head with “The Chew” and “The Revolution” when it comes to the almighty dollar (ie. which show brings in enough income relative to cost). Upon announcing the timeslot shift for “GH” back in June, Jori Petersen, Vice President, Publicity, ABC Daytime/SOAPnet stated via a company press release that “The announcement does not mean the inevitable cancellation of ‘General Hospital.’ Rather it means that in September 2012, we will program our daytime block with our three strongest shows. We’ll have options for the daytime daypart just like we do each year with prime-time. We believe in all of our shows and the ones that our viewers want will be the ones that continue. There are many options that could happen … only time will tell. We are simply giving ourselves options for the future, which is a smart way to do business. The best way to ensure a favorite show stays on the air is to watch it.”

New York’s last remaining regularly scheduled daytime soap opera, “One Life to Live,” is set to film its final episode on the afternoon of Friday, November 18 and air its series finale in January 2012. “All My Children,” “As The World Turns,” “Guiding Light,” “Another World,” “The City” and “Loving” were the last regularly scheduled daytime soaps to film in New York City. In the case of “AMC,” the soap moved to Los Angeles in January 2010 in a cost saving move after nearly 40 years on television. The soap was later canceled along with “One Life to Live” in April 2011, four months after celebrating its 41st anniversary.



JPI

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — EXCLUSIVE! Sources have confirmed to Soap Opera Network that “Days of our Lives” has fired Co-Executive Producer Noel Maxam. His replacement will be former “Passions” Executive Producer Lisa De Cazotte.

This comes as a shocking development as Maxam was named Co-Executive Producer this past June, along with Greg Meng, who will remain as Co-Executive Producer.

De Cazotte was the Executive Producer of “Passions” for the show’s entire run (July 5, 1999 – August 7, 2008).   This reunites her with former “Passions” writers and current  “DAYS” Co-Head Writers Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr.  and Marlene McPherson.

De Cazotte began her soap opera career as an intern for “One Life To Live” in the early 1980′s and worked her way up to Coordinating Producer before leaving in 1991 to join “Santa Barabara” as a Producer.   When “Santa Barbara” ended in 1993, she joined “All My Children” where she was a Coordinating Producer and later Supervising Producer. In 1996, De Cazotte left “AMC” to help start NBC’s new soap opera “Sunset Beach” where she worked as a Producer and Supervising Producer. In 1998, De Cazotte was chosen to be the Executive Producer of another new NBC soap, “Passions.”   After “Passions” ended, De Cazotte was name the Executive Producer for the second season of SOAPnet’s “General Hospistal: Night Shift” (July 22, 2008 – October 21, 2008). In 2009, she returned to “All My Children” as a Producer and worked there for a year.

De Cazotte is a graduate of Fordham University and has 4 Daytime Emmy nominations.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Soap Opera Network has confirmed with an official Prospect Park spokesperson that Darnell Williams has reached an agreement to continue with “All My Children” for its scheduled online resurrection in 2012. This afternoon, Williams’ former and future co-star, Lindsay Hartley (Cara) jumped over the production company that licensed “AMC” and “One Life to Live” earlier this year to reveal the news on Twitter. The excited actress exclaimed to fans that the popular actor “has officially signed on!! More to come.” All deals between Prospect Park and performers remain tentative at the moment due to the fact that an official deal hasn’t been reached between the actors’ union AFTRA and the production company.

Williams originally joined the cast of “AMC” in 1981 as Jesse Hubbard, the future love of Angela Baxter’s (Debbi Morgan) life. The actor remained in the role until 1988 when Jesse was killed off. Before returning to “AMC” for a second long-term gig in 2008, Williams played Jacob Foster on ABC’s “Loving” and “The City” opposite his long time co-star Morgan and enjoyed a recurring gig on CBS’ “Guiding Light.” The 2-time Daytime Emmy winner has also appeared in a multitude of prime-time series including a recurring role on “Felicity.” Before rejoining the cast of “AMC,” Williams was the acting coach for the daytime drama for some time and occasionally directed an episode of the daytime drama. On an important side note, Williams’ on-screen other half, Morgan, is currently starring on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.”

Williams, so far, is only the third “AMC” performer to sign on to continue with the soap opera once it goes online. He joins Hartley and Cameron Mathison (Ryan). Multiple sources indicate that the sticking point for a multitude of actors, besides not being contacted in some cases, has been that the Prospect Park executives want all of their actors to sign on to 4-year contracts. After years of being misinformed and tied to the controlling atmosphere of ABC Daytime, many “AMC” actors don’t appear to have a strong desire to oblige to long-term contracts.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – TV Line revealed today that  Susan Lucci has landed a gig on “Army Wives” which airs on the Lifetime cable network. The popular series stars Lucci’s former “All My Children” co-star Kim Delaney. For at least two episodes of the sixth season of the series, which will begin airing in the spring of 2012, the daytime legend will be playing a former Army wife and a new confidante of sorts for Delaney’s character, Claudia.

“Army Wives,” which averaged 3.7 million viewers a week in its fifth season and has earned the distinction of being the number one scripted drama series on cable in the Female 18-49 demographic, debuted in June 2007 on Lifetime with Delaney as its headline star.

The beautiful Delaney played Jenny Gardner, one half of super couple Greg (Laurence Lau) and Jenny, on “AMC” from 1981 to 1984. Despite some ongoing personal issues that have recently put the actress on the news, Delaney has enjoyed a successful prime-time television career with starring roles on series including “NYPD Blue,” “Philly” and “CSI: Miami.” Lucci, of course, is an original cast member or “AMC” which debuted in 1970. Along with the prestigious honor of hosting “Saturday Night Live,” during her career the popular actress has been the commercial spokesperson for brands including Ford automobiles, guest-starred on numerous series and starred on numerous television movies.

Last she touched on the topic, despite prior reports to the contrary, Lucci confided that she was still in ongoing negotiations with production company Prospect Park to bring Erica Kane back to Pine Valley. “AMC” is scheduled to debut online at some point in 2012.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — You may be asking yourself why in the world would we be doing a ratings reflection that highlights ABC’s canceled “All My Children” as ranking second in households (amongst all soaps) for the season when the show has already gone off the air with its last episode airing on Friday, September 23 and talk show “The Chew” already replacing the soap in its old timeslot. If I were to tell you that because ABC scheduled the series finale of “AMC” during the first week of the 2011-2012 television season that the soap would remain in the season-to-date rankings until September 2012, would you believe it? You better!

In the latest ratings released on Friday covering the week of October 3-7, 2011 and the season-to-date ratings of September 19 through October 7, 2011, ABC’s “All My Children” jumped from a 2.3 in households based on the previously reported Live+SD ratings to a 2.4 using newly released Live+7 ratings reflecting the soaps final week on television (week of September 19-23, 2011). In Women 18-49, “AMC” jumped from a 1.1 to a 1.2 rating and in Women 18-34 the soap jumped from a 0.6 to a 0.7 rating. The soap is tied for first in Women 18-34 with “Days of our Lives,” “The Price is Right 2,” “The Young and the Restless” and “The View.” “AMC” is second in Women 18-49 for the season just behind “Y&R,” which ranks first with a 1.4. In Women 25-54, “AMC” ranks second again behind “Y&R” with a 1.7 for “AMC” and a 1.8 for “Y&R.” In the original Live+SD numbers “AMC” ranked second with a 1.5, which shows the soap gained .3 when Live+7 was factored in.

With “All My Children” no longer a factor in the current daytime climate, for the week of October 3-7, 2011 CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” remained daytime’s most watched soap with 4.2 million viewers watching the daily antics in Genoa City. The soap has lost 15% of its audience (or 765,000 viewers) compared to its performance a year ago (week of October 4-8, 2010). Despite receiving more viewers than any series aired on The CW, including in the rarely reported Adults 18-49 demographic, and remaining the most watched daily serial, the soaps performance would place it in serious danger of cancellation if it were aired in primetime on any of the big four broadcast networks with the exception of maybe a Friday night airing on ABC, FOX or NBC. “The Bold and the Beautiful” by comparison has lost only 8% of its viewership compared to the same point last year (2.9 million vs 3.1 million). Overall CBS has lost 12% of its daytime viewership compared to last year (3.0 million vs 3.4 million). The network is down 8% in households (2.2 vs 2.4) and another 16% in Women 18-49 viewers (530,000 vs 631,000).

Steve Fenn/ABC

ABC is down 5% in households year-to-year (1.9 vs 2.0) and 9% in total viewers (2.5 million vs 2.7 million). The network is down a whopping 24% in both Women 18-49 and Women 25-54 viewers (541,000 vs 712,000 in Women 18-49 viewers; 714,000 vs 941,000 in Women 25-54 viewers) compared to its performance during the same week last year. ABC is down another 28% year-to-year in Women 18-34 viewers (163,000 Vs 225,000). With “All My Children” no longer in the mix, the network is losing ground in every ratings category with “General Hospital” losing as much as 30% or higher in a number of key demographics including a 50% drop in Women 18-34 rating and 51% in Women 18-34 viewers. “One Life to Live” has lost only 17% of its Women 18-34 (rating) audience and just 23% in actuals. “The View” is the sole bright spot for ABC with a gain of 10% in viewers (3.7 million vs 3.4 million) and another 12% gain in households (2.9 vs 2.6) compared to the year-ago.

NBC’s sole program during the daytime hours remains “Days of our Lives,” which is up 5% in viewers year-to-year and either flat or marginally down in most other categories.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Ratings for the week of October 3-7, 2011 have not come out for soap operas as of this writing, but ratings for “The Chew” are! The talk show that replaced “All My Children” in the ABC Daytime lineup is now down to an average of just 1.78 million viewers tuning in for cooking advice according to Marc Berman of TV Media Insights.

For the week of October 3-7, 2011, “The Chew” is down a whopping 322,000 viewers from its already dismal debut week (week of September 26-30, 2011) and an even steeper decline of 650,000 viewers from what “All My Children” had during the comparable week last year.

TV Media Insights:

Based on the Live Plus Same Day ratings results from Nielsen Media Research, new ABC daytime talker The Chew dipped from its already lackluster opening week ratings.  The Chew averaged 1.78 million viewers for the week of Oct. 3, which was down by 322,000 viewers (or 15 percent) from the 2.10 million it delivered for the week of Sept. 26.  Demo losses were 20 percent in women 25-54 (1.0 to 0.8 rating), 14 percent in women 18-49 (0.7 to 0.6) and 20 percent among women 18-34 (0.5 to 0.4).
