All My Children
ALL THINGS RELATED

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

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.

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.

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.
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!
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.
Early this afternoon, Entertainment Weekly broke the news that daytime's number one drama, "The Young and the Restless," has put another former "All My Children" star on contract to join Genoa City's ranks. This happens just several weeks after wooing the ABC Daytime drama's acclaimed and long-time casting director, Judy Blye Wilson. The CBS drama and Wilson have snatched up one of Wilson's most popular Pine Valley finds, Melissa Claire Egan. Beginning on November 11, Egan will debut in the contract role of mystery woman Chelsea.
