This is not so strange once you hear what show is going to get some special attention on the CBS daytime show “The Talk.” The actors are coming from “All My Children,” the week immediately following the end of the long-running soap opera on ABC.
The Talk is pitching September 26-30 as “All My Meals” week, with guest appearances on three days by “daytime hunks” Jacob Young, Michael E. Knight and Ricky Paull Goldin from All My children. They will cook up their favorite recipes and join The Talk hosts at the table to reflect back on the legacy of All My Children, which ends its 41-year run on Friday, September 23.
Jacob Young (JR Chandler) will be a guest on Monday (9/26), where he’ll also discuss his return to CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” that same day. Daytime Emmy Award winner Michael E. Knight, best known for his role as Tad Martin, will appear on Wednesday (9/28) and Daytime Emmy Award-nominated co-star Ricky Paull Goldin, who played Dr. Jake Martin, will be a guest on Thursday (9/29).
Not coincidentally, the week will also see ABC’s launch of a new daytime talker, “The Chew,” a direct competitor to The Talk, in the former All My Children time slot.
