OLTL ranks higher than debut of "The Talk"

ABC Daytime put out their own press release today, pointing out that its soap, One Life to Live, fared much better in the same day ratings as the premiere of  the replacement for As the World Turns, the mommie-fest talk show, The Talk.

From the release:  “Against the highly-promoted debut of CBS’ The Talk, in head-to-head competition at 2 o’clock EST/1PMPST, ABC’s daytime drama One Life to Live defeated The Talk by a solid 13% in Total Viewers (2.5 million vs. 2.2 million) and 19% among Women 18-49 (690,000 vs. 581,000). ” Source: Nielsen Media Research (Fast Affiliate, Live + Same Day Ratings), 10/18/10

So now both networks have spun ratings in their favor.  Let the games begin!  ATWT fans  can only hope One Life delivers a knockout punch to The Talk.  So, make sure to start watching the goings-on in Llanview if you are not already on-board!

The Talk is nothing more than a cheap knock-off of The View. Do we need another talk show? I think not. I hope OLTL continues to beat The Talk in the ratings and that network execs understand we love our soaps, and we have more than enough talk shows at the moment. So sad to think that ATWT was cancelled for The Talk? I doubt many long GL or ATWT fans will be tuning in to see how The Talk fares.

But get this the hosts’ of the Talk are not interested in beating one life to live just has long as they beat ATWT!!, so said holly R pete in a very recent interview she also said apparently that she is oh so happy that juile chen is host because of JC husband But my question is what do these women trutly kn about raising babies when you look at that reality show w/ SHARON OSBORN an all the drugs unage drinking so on. Do we really want the future children of america growing up like that? Remember it only takes one bad egg An you want yr viewers taking advise from S.O or juile chen, or sara G cbs?? we really should had a 30 minute reality soap with daytime actor’s A day in the life of part fiction/ part reality… Loads of gossip So funer…. Lol.

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs. The campaign is set to run until June 6th, by which time the producers must have attained their goal of $60,000, or if you contribute and they have not met their goal, it is refunded. (more…)
