    Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) from All my Children to Desperate Housewives? Seems like a perfect fit and too easy, unless I’m wrong

      Paget Brewster has been cast in an NBC pilot, “My life as an Experiment”. Criminal Minds is on CBS.

      Which shows are struggling to get another season?

    It has to be a big name for the producers to expect it to be a ratings booster. I’m going to say Katherine Heigl to Desperate Housewives.

      I immediately thought of Heighl too. However, it’s well known that the reason she wanted out of her contract so badly was to pursue a film career. I can’t see her going back to television. Not yet anyways…

        Maybe it is the cougar trend. I guess it also depends how they decide to use her if it is Lucci – she could play someone over 50 (or 60 since she is 64) or in her forties, heck late thirties. I think there were jokes about her and Eva Longoria how they could be sisters but Lucci is like 30 years older.

    I don’t think its Paget Brewster; she has a comedy pilot for NBC and if that doesn’t go to seriers Criminal Minds has an option to pick her up on ABC.

    I would guess Susan Lucci from AMC to Desperate Housewives.

    By TVBytheNumbers’ renew/cancel index, my guess is Elizabeth Mitchell (V more likely to be cancelled) to Brothers and Sisters (toss up between renewal and cancellation). As of right now, Desperate Housewives is listed as certain to be renewed and it’s way above the network’s average ratings.

      rethinking desperate housewives as I believe it’s safe for renewal, and the blind item mentions that the show hopes to stay on the air for another year. The way it’s worded (“a prime-time show”) seems to imply that the actress previously wasn’t on a prime-time show, and since All My Children (an established TV series) was canceled today and will be gone by September, I’m going with Susan Lucci. As far as the prime-time show she could be joining: Brothers & Sisters, a show with a large cast that could use the ratings boost that would come from Sally Field sparring with Erica Kane.

      Yes, whatever show it is will have a new viewer, namely me cause I love me some Susan Lucci. Another guess to piggy back on the Rebecca Budig by treyc would be on Castle because I know she guess starred on an episode (I didn’t see it so I don’t know what happened with the character or if it’s possible to bring her back on).

    For something different I am going to go with Rebecca Budig from All My Children joining Housewives or Grey’s. Brian Frons has a h— on for her and probably used his influence to cast her on a prime time show.
    Most likely, though, it is Susan Lucci joining DH

    How do they find out this gossip is what I would like to know. I do not think it would be a star from V. The person who looked at the choice of words pointed out some interesting facts. It did make it sound like the actress was moving to prime time tv and All My Children is an established series. But the thing is the gossip said the actress was supposed to bring in ratings. Also, AMC is on ABC as is Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters both formerly strong ABC shows that could do with a little life. Good point about how old Lucci is but maybe she was a Cougar when she hooked up with someone on DH or it could be a new role or something. Likewise for Brothers and Sisters. Somehow I think DH rather than B & S. No one has that bite since Nicolette Sheridan left. Lucci or Erica Kane (people seem to like or want Erica Kane) would add some zip. But Brian Frons ABC honcho loves Rebecca Budig. Also, if Lucci is going to prime time – how did they do it so fast. AMC just got cancelled. And is Lucci a big enough name to bring in ratings. She has not done a prime time move in about 15 years folks. Even then it was Lifetime tv I think. Granted ALL of her tv movies have done well with most in the top ten and a couple in the top twenty. Age (though she looks great) and star power is the big issue.

    Huh? I don’t understand? This is so confusing??? How in the heck? This is like deja vu. Lucci has been telling the world (and she has been everywhere)that she has not signed on with DH although she has been coy as she didn’t say it was a possibility. Then on another report a so called insider said Lucci wasn’t even considered for a role. This was after it was pointed out that AMC would still be filming while DH started filming. I thought that wasn’t a big problem because well wouldn’t it take a while to write her in unless she was like a maid or something in the back ground. EVeryone has been denying it. Some saying she is too old. Some saying the other actresses would not be thrilled. Really though how much competition is Susan Lucci to the ladies of wisteria lane. She is at least 20 to 30 years older them. I think she is “fatter” than Teri Hatcher but fair enough she may give her a run for skinniness. And more importantly, how did BG do it? How did they find this out when everyone else other than that Tony nominated lady said Lucci wasn’t going to DH? And didn’t anyone see Entertainment Tonight preview for Monday May 9. Lucci already gave an interview to them. It would be “shocking” to think ET already knows and that we will be “shocked” on Monday that Lucci instead of keeping up the front she is not going to Wisteria Lane and not even a hint of discussions is suddenly on DH. It appeared from the preview the interview was already filmed.

    On the other hand, I am thrilled for soap fans, DH fans and the world of fairness and justice if such a classy, talented, loyal person gets a job in spite many believe she is too old. Let’s hope BG is right. I would love to see the faces on those housewives on Wisteria Lane when whatever character Lucci shows up. (Does anyone know is Lucci “fatter” or bigger than Longoria? it would be hilarious if Longoria’s character felt she had competition from an older petite lady)
