I’m curious what this means the total number of viewers are for each show.


I read a 100 times, there are no numbers just popularity ..


I will keep watching – I’m even watching OLTL (which I haven’t watched for years) and some of the scenes between Vicki and Dorian are almost cartoonish compared to years ago and it’s a little hard to take their love/hate relationship seriously after all these years. THAT is not to say that Erica Slezak isn’t great, because she is, but sometimes the tension between the characters of Vicki and Dorian seems a little forced and over-the-top – as for AMC, thrilled to have it back but am hoping for more familiar faces to return to Pine Valley.


i think they… the writers… like Vicki does… have a life… outside of their feud.

need to give Dorian… a love interest… or show a lil’ more interest in her children… or her possessed… infatuation with self.

spoiling her ego.

not have Dorian so channeled.. with just Vicki.

I disagree about the scenes between Viki & Dorian are cartoonish and the tenison
between them doesn’t seems forced. I enjoy their cat fights. I have for years! Give it a chance it was only the first week. And will be watching the second week!


Ditto, how many viewers does this translate to?


Ill be watching both everday lov them


I will be watching just as avidly next week! So glad to have 2 of my favorite soaps back but I’m greedy – I want As the World Turns and Guiding Light back as well!


Boy me too Lena, makes me so sad to see those R.I.P by my two fave soaps for forty five yrs. every time I come to this page! Lets hope the internet soap biz takes off and someone brings back ATWT and GL!


I’ll keep watching. I’m so thrilled to have OLTL back. I wake up thirty minutes early to watch it before I go to work. Llanview lives and I couldn’t be happier.


I watched some episodes twice…are they both counted or just the first time i watched? How accurate are they? I mean if they count the episodes i watched the first time as well as the ones i watched over(had trouble hearing dialogue like some others had so i watched again to see if i missed something)then not as many might be watching like those numbers suggest, im just saying!


I can’t even find episode 5 of AMC or OLTL on the hulu web site. They are mislabeled – what shows as episode 5 is actually something else. Hulu needs to fix this for us! They have no customer support phone number to call. Was looking forward to watching my shows today!


Episode 5 is the recap and special episode, they are doing that each Friday. So that is considered episode 5.


This makes me so happy! Congrats PP, AMC, and OLTL.


I wanna see numbers.. which they should have an exact number of viewers. If it’s topped 1 million on any given day, then it’s a great success!

CW primetime doesn’t average one million viewers for any of their shows, the average number of viewers for any primetime show is around 3-4 million. So if a internet show is able to achieve 1/3 or a quarter of a primetime network show.. that’s big!

I think i’m going to watch the week over for both shows.. love OLTL. I didn’t watch AMC towards the end of their run on ABC, but i’m hooked back in.


Congratulations TOLN, PP, AMC, and OLTL!!!


According to Prospect Park, AMC and OLTL’s break-even point is 500K viewers.. anything over 500K, means the shows are successful. Couldn’t find any numbers yet.


I will be watching both soaps. Can’t wait.

susan M.



Well, of course our soaps are up on top, I had no doubts .. 🙂


I will watch on every gadget I can to help keep the numbers up.

I mean, we cannot forget that many soap fans (and others) fought very hard to bring these shows back to us, while many of us (me included) just wished they’d return. Now a miracle has occurred and OLTL and AMC are with us again. This is a new format and there are bound to be both good and bad. We ALL must promote and support these shows as they learn to stand in a different medium; brand new just like when soaps went from radio to TV. For every little complaint I want to see fixed, I stop myself from remaining so critical and thank TPTB that my show is back where I can visit with these characters several times a week.

I have to wonder how many fans of other defunct soaps wish their soaps had been brought back to life. I know I sure have my Wish List for back from the dead soaps.

My sleeves are rolled up and my clicker-finger is ready to watch OLTL and AMC for years to come on my computer if that’s what it takes.

I can’t say THANK YOU enough to those who fought so hard to bring these shows back to us and to the actors and production team members who came back to bring us our favs.


yep I’ve been letting them run every available way I can. Hopefully those count as separate views. It’s still not fully sunk in that my shows are really back. Will support however I can to keep them back now.


I am so happy. i will keep watching for sure though those recap shows are kind of lame!


I have searched on line to find out how to get/see numbers for the soaps’
there are no numbers at HuLu, none..

So, people maybe should stop asking for numbers because they will get the same answer; there are no numbers.
If, PP gets the numbers and shares them with us., it would be the only way will ever see numbers..
The internet is different than Network TV, for one thing, Nielsen is not on the internet counting, and that is a very good thing that the Nielsen Ratings are not at HuLu..
Everything I found on-line about numbers at HuLu, there are none, and that it is all about popularity.


This is wonderful news. I hope the trend continues. I know I’ll be watching both shows everyday.


Both shows everyday!! Love prospect park for saving this project! Well worth it. Both shows amazing!!

Tali(not Smith)

Isn’t it great!


I am watching. Both good. I actually prefer watching on huluplus thru tv. Click and there they are.

I do hope the fans of these shows get more like the primetime soap fans. I think the daytime fans have gotten where they feel comfortable criticizing everything. Saying they are loyal just doesn’t fit anymore. There has to be change there for this venture to work. Just compare the Scandal/Dallas fans to daytime. It is sometimes embarrassing how the daytime fans have gotten. Go back to enjoying and even though I hate saying this I will, If you don’t like what you are seeing, don’t watch.

I do see viewing going more and more this way. It is just matter of time. Not sure how sports will fit in. I still watch with huluplus and tv. I like huge screen. Went back to basic cable. Hope the ratings continue to rise on these two shows. I think they have advantage of pulling in younger viewers because of viewing venue.


I agree. I’m so sick of all the couch potato criticism. If you want things to go exactly the way you want, and characters to speak to you personally, I say to these type of fans to write fan fiction. There’s many people, many tastes, and shows can’t cater to just one fan’s or even a particular group’s pov. Its just gross to me. My theory is that if anyone is to blame for Disney not wanting to deal with a soap opera on its network, these fans, who can take a look in the mirror, and own it. If a fan has to see things their way, they should not watch television at all, let alone single out a show that knocks itself out to care about the fans.


Love having AMC back, bought the ITunes season and will continue to watch and renew as long as it is available. Are they charging for the recap episode?


One negative for me though, not a fan of the foul words, especially coming from the veteran characters. Not necessary.

susan M.

Oh well.. They can say things on line that they could never say when they were on the T.V. I think it isn’t necessary either.


I will be watching every single day! 🙂


Loving my soaps on Hulu. Congrats & thanks to all involved in the reboot!


All My Children ROCKS! Thankyou to all the faithful actors who stuck by this vision with HuLu and made AMC a success. How could you not with the appearances of Dr. Joe Martin (The Matriarch)Adam Chandler (icon) Brooke (ol’ faithful) sweet Dixie, ageless Angie, Villon David, and my favorite – the hilarious Opal. You all look as great as ever! If we as fans continue watching and supporting our favorite soap AMC, this will be in the History books! ABC eat your hearts out. I for one never watched the other shows that replaced our beloved AMC and must admit, became a Days of Our Lives fan instead. But I’m back and I hope Petee makes Mama proud!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit:

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
