    I love Susan Lucci and miss AMC terribly. And OLTL as well. I don’t like Deadly Affairs. All the stories presented have already been told repeatedly on several other ID shows and Snapped and Dateline, etc.

    i would really rather see susan in something else that would really showcase her talent…………………ijs

    Lucci, you need to be back on soaps. It’s the genre that made you, you are a NAME in the mainstream and you owe it to your peers to come back to daytime and fight the good fight for the few remaining dramas we have left. May I suggest the role of Julia Newman on Y&R, Victor’s first wife? Come on Susan, it’s time to come home to soaps.

    I saw an ep and wasn’t impressed. I think it would be better with just a voice over.


  6. Tad says:

    She needs another show where she is more than the hostess. I hope Devious Maids will showcase her enough or what about a sitcom. It would be nice if she could maybe finish off the AMC story on say GH and then do a new character on Y and R or something.

    ABC if you are listening I know money and pragmatics. But you could start with the premise of the Erica Kane movie that was part of the cliff hanger. The scene would open with a funeral and it is Erica. That way you do not have to worry about the old sets. Jack, bianca, Kendall and Pine Valley is mourning; – those missing can be partially explained they were all killed in a shoot out by JR. The body and funeral is for Erica. AFter saying some poignant words by Jack and her family they go to lay her to rest at the buriel sight. When rising out of the Ashes is Erica Kane. She is alive and thus her movie. It was the doppleganger Jane who had broken out of prison with several other people. She was mad she took the rap for stabbing David and in jail. She took Erica’s place. You can even have a dying scene with Erica (Jane) trying to tell Jack who declares his love for his dying “Erica”. They could then cut to a wedding of Jack and Erica to tie up loose ends; it could be a “fundraiser” to allow old AMC stars to return to the wedding even those who don’t know Erica well as it is a fundraiser. ABC could have some competition for a wedding gown to save money for an upcoming desinger they could say size 2 or 0 hinting it could be Brooke or if that is too far fetched Kelly Ripa’s Hailey renewing vows to Mateo. They could hold suspense by having three dresses with somehting happening to the first two til the winning design is shown on Erica as she marries Jack and then Dr. Martin closes the “book” for ever.
