All My Children

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

Earlier today, Soap Opera Digest posted breaking news on their website when they reported that actress Cady McClain would be returning to ABC's "All My Children" in the role of Dixie Cooney. Shortly afterward, Soaps in Depth posted their own version of the news. Who to believe? At this point, it doesn't matter as long as Dixie's back! Then again, Cady did return in early 2010 when Dixie, who died via poisoned pancakes (what were the writers thinking?), and her ghost/spirit was used to usher out Palmer Cortlandt, who had "died" on the soap a few months after his real-life portrayer, James Mitchell, passed away.
Could the incompetence of a network executive get any uglier? Why yes, it can! The latest in a series of blunders by Brian Frons, President, Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group, since the announcement that he has decided to "evolve" ABC Daytime by canceling "All My Children and "One Life to Live" by replacing them with "The Chew" and "The Revolution," while sticking his foot in his mouth in interview (, after interview (Entertainment Weekly), after interview (The Wrap), comes a scathing report by another Disney Insider that paints Frons as an executive without much imagineers (Disney speak for imagination).
Following months of speculation, the announcement has finally been made official today. ABC has announced plans to cancel two-thirds of their daytime soap line-up. According to reports, "All My Children" will last air in September, while "One Life to Live" will leave the air in January 2012. The move will leave "General Hospital" as the network's only remaining daytime drama.
( -- As we reported on Saturday, April 2, ABC has now confirmed to Soap Opera Network that Lorraine Broderick has been named head writer of 41-year-old "All My Children." Broderick replaces David Kreizman and Donna Swajeski, whose contracts were not renewed by the network. Unfortunately, Broderick's escalation to the top writing position does not put a stop to rumors of "AMC's" pending cancellation despite reports to the contrary. In fact, in the rarest of instances, ABC did not include a single quote from Brian Frons, President, Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group, or Broderick herself in the press release issued...

As previously reported, Jeff Branson is joining the cast of "The Young and the Restless" in the role of Detective Ronan Malloy, Chance's (John Driscoll) new partner. Soap Opera Network has your first look at Jeff on the set of the soap. His first airdate is set for Tuesday, June 22.
In a not so surprising development, is reporting that CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" has dropped veteran actor Winsor Harmon (Thorne Forrester) to recurring status. Harmon, who joined the cast of the drama series in December 1996, has had relatively nothing to do on the soap since his character's relationship with Katherine Kelly Lang's Brooke Forrester fizzled some years back, which was expected as Brooke's world always revolved around Thorne's older brother Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss) anyway. Prior to joining the cast of "The Bold and the Beautiful," Harmon enjoyed a successful run on the ABC soap "All My...
