All My Children Comes to an End: Creator Agnes Nixon and the Cast Look Back

All My Children

After nearly 42 years of scandalous affairs, decades-long rivalries, fairy tale romances, kidnapped babies, serial killers, resurrected loved ones and the occasional Pennsylvania tornado, All My Children as fans have known it will come to an end on Friday. Two weeks before production wrapped, TVGuide.com spent a few days behind the scenes of Pine Valley as writers, producers and cast performed something of a three-ring circus, rallying to deliver what they hoped would be a satisfying conclusion for their loyal viewers.

During one morning meeting, longtime director Steven Williford planned out the moment in which Angie (Debbi Morgan) would get her sight back, enacting how she would stumble, joyful and teary-eyed, toward Jessie (Darnell Williams). Downstairs on set at the Pine Valley police station, Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Dixie (Cady McClain) -- together, at last — confronted David (Vincent Irizarry) perhaps for the final time, begging to know read more

Exec Producer Betsy Thomas: There's Room Among NBC's Snobby Sitcoms for Whitney's Comedy

Whitney Cummings and Chris D’Elia

NBC's Thursday night lineup was once dubbed Must-See TV — and with shows like The Office, Community and Parks and Recreation leading the comedy block, it's hard to say things have really changed from the days when Friends and Seinfeld once held court. This makes it even more challenging for new comedy Whitney to gain its footing at 9:30/8:30c, a spot previously held by the likes of 30 Rock, which returns midseason, and the short-lived Outsourced.

Whitney: How different is Whitney Cummings from her TV persona, really?

Meet Phoebe Tonkin, The Secret Circle's Bad Girl

Phoebe Tonkin

The Secret Circle's Faye may be labeled the show's resident bad girl, but star Phoebe Tonkin insists that's she just misunderstood. "She's not really evil; she's just misguided and pushes people to their limits without realizing what the consequences would be," Tonkin tells TVGuide.com.
