On today's ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey, Jillian, Melodie and Bernard discuss the latest in All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live storylines and news, including:
All My Children's David continues to manipulate Amanda and Jake. AMC finishes taping in New York City on December 11. Jamey gives an update on Brian Frons' visit to New York City and what he's heard about which AMC stars are moving to L.A. Should a daytime soap be like Melrose? Jamey doesn't think so.
Did General Hospital's special carnival event breathe new life into the show? The DC gang discusses whether or not Claudia saw Kristina in the rubble. Liason's brief scenes warmed Jamey's heart. What will happen to Jax and Carly's marriage when it is revealed that Jax knew about what Claudia and Jerry did? Would General Hospital's ratings go up if it fired its six biggest stars like Days of Our Lives' have?
If One Life to Live had the PR and push that General Hospital and All My Children get would it be ABC's highest rated soap? Jamey believes that if soap fans only watch one soap it should be OLTL. OLTL figured out a way to incorporate a mob storyline that didn't eat the show and involved core characters, but its ratings didn't go up. Why didn't it work for OLTL when it does for GH? Patricia Mauceri talks to Fox News. Is Roscoe Born returning to OLTL? If so, what might his storyline include?
