Ready for more TV dish? Well…
• I have some good news and bad news, soap fans. First up: ABC’s long-running All My Children may be in trouble, says Deadline. The network is the only one of the big three (also, CBS and NBC) who has yet to pare down its daytime sudser lineup in recent years, yet now there is talk that they might be ready to do so. Should ABC choose to trim its slate, AMC is the most vulnerable due to consistently low ratings. On a more positive note? CBS will air the Daytime Emmys live from Las Vegas on Sunday, June 19 at 8/7c.
• It’s miniseries mania! ABC has picked up a four-hour Titanic miniseries by Oscar winner Julian Fellowes, Deadline reports. Also, HBO is developing a miniseries about former Vice President Dick Cheney, based on the book Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency.
• 30 Rock and True Blood were both honored at the 22nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday night for their “fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.”
• The CW’s Secret Circle continues to round out its cast. In addition to Natasha Henstridge coming on board as vice principal Dawn Chamberlain, Australian actor Louis Hunter will play the series’ leading man, badboy witch Nick, says Zap2it.
• TV Land has renewed freshman series Retired at 35 for a second season, as well as officially picked up Fran Drescher’s Happily Divorced.
