by Michael Maloney, posted Feb 17th 2010 3:30PM
David CanaryABC has officially confirmed what many soap opera fans have been speculating for months: Fan favorite David Canary ('All My Children') is retiring.

The actor will continue to appear on the show through the end of April, setting up for a major power struggle within the Chandler household.

"My career on 'All My Children' has given me more than words could ever convey, both professionally and personally," Canary said in a statement.

Luckily, Canary's retirement won't mean the final end to Adam. "I will be back to check up on the Chandler clan," he added.

Without Adam appearing on a regular basis, 'AMC' will have to find someone with the combined evil of JR Ewing, Hannibal Lecter and Simon Bar Sinister to fill the void. Canary, who started on the show in 1984, won Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in 1986, 1988, 1989, 1993 and 2001,making him one of soaps' most celebrated actors.

Here's a look back at five of Canary's most memorable moments on daytime TV:

David Canary Is Leaving 'All My Children'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 15th 2010 3:29PM
david_canary_all_my_children_abcOne of the biggest stars of daytime, David Canary, has chosen not to renew his contract with 'All My Children,' in large part because of the soap's relocation to Los Angeles according to Soap Opera Network. ABC hasn't confirmed the information, but the creator of 'All My Children,' Agnes Nixon, did. And prior to her confirmation, David Canary's daughter Tweeted about it to David's fans.

David Canary has been on 'All My Children' as Adam and Stuart Chandler since 1983, winning five Daytime Emmys (out of eleven nominations), and he's a fantastic actor. The roles of Adam and Stuart have been integral to the show, even after it was revealed that Adam was responsible for shooting – and killing – Stuart last year.

All My Children's murder mystery rip-off

by Allison Waldman, posted May 23rd 2009 12:01PM
All My Children logoAfter weeks of hype, scoops and spoilers, message board fodder and threats against columnists to not reveal a thing lest they be flogged and embargoed out of the business, All My Children's big murder mystery kicked into high gear when it turned out that the victim was not really one of the characters on the cover of Soap Opera Digest.

For the network, all this was great. ABC Daytime got a bump in the Nielsens and it seems the post-murder intrigue, i.e. whodunit, is keeping viewers DVR'ing, Soapnet watching, or just planning on watching during their lunch hours (like the old days). But getting back to the victim, AMC had a chance to do something really bold and dramatic. Instead head writer Chuck Pratt Jr. played it safe. More on the victim, including the name in case you don't know by now (yes, that's a warning), after the jump.

The Daytime Emmy nominations announced

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 30th 2008 2:02PM
EmmyThe Daytime Emmy nominations were announced this morning on The View. My initial reaction is this: there are so many repeat nominees! This list is filled with actors who have won multiple times. Are the Daytime Emmys in a rut? I'm afraid so. This list seems very stale to me, not that many of these performers aren't worthy, but a lot of other worthy actors were completely overlooked. Again. Emmy could use an overhaul, but we'll discuss that another time.

Here are the main nominees -- and some comments -- and you can check out the complete list and a photo gallery of the Daytime Emmy nominees at AOL Television. On Friday, June 20, ABC will broadcast the awards in primetime (8-11 p.m. EST) from the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.

Outstanding Daytime Drama
General Hospital
Guiding Light
One Life to Live
The Young & the Restless


Here we have the usual suspects. Last year, Y&R and GL shared the prize. My choice would be OLTL this time around -- they had a great year and have been on the uprise. However, Y&R has a lot of actor nominations and that could mean another Emmy for the Bell show. I'd be flabbergasted if either GH or GL win. Both shows have received critical blasts this past year.
