AMC Head Writer Canned! Julia Barr to Return?

Effective immediately, ABC has confirmed that Megan McTavish has been fired as head writer of All My Children.

Fans will most likely be rejoicing, as many voiced outrage concerning several dark storylines that had been unfolding, as well as the recent killing off of fan-favorite Cady McClain (ex-Dixie) by the Satin Slayer.

Hopefully this will be a chance for AMC to get back to basics, and to reinvigorate its fan base, as well as the tired storylines. McTavish's ousting is also sparking rumors that Julia Barr (Brooke English) might be coming back this spring (after being unceremoniously dumped late last year after almost 30 years on the show).

As of this writing, ABC has not named McTavish's replacement.
