Wouldn't it be cool if Soapnet picked up AMC and started it back from the very beginning?

I don't watch AMC, BUT, "The Chew"? Really? These so-called 'reality" shows make one want to chuck the tv out the window. They're like roaches.

It is pure stupidity. They have alienated a lot of viewers. Having done this, how do they expect these new shows to be a success?

I grew up watching All My Children. I work during the day and really don't have time to watch recorded episodes, but it's like an old friend. It's nice just knowing it's there, just in case I want to visit every once in a while. This is a sad time for day time television. Very sorry to see it go. As for the new daytime line up, it's getting as bad as the evening. There is absolutely nothing on at night during the summer. Just a waste of air time. These games shows are not entertainment, just someone stupid getting paid meticulous salaries. At least this gives me more time to read and enjoy nature. All My Children ~ thank you for many years of entertainment and you will be greatly missed.

So only people who watch tv durng primetime are contributing members of society, what a narrow minded view, You have no idea what your talking about. More disrespect for soap fans, its to be expected, a genre that has been around longer than most. TV shows lasting 40+ years while no others in primetime come close, but we th daytime viewer is somehow the lesser?? Keep your reality tv, I'm sick of them showcasing the absolute horrors of our society.
