I still can’t believe it. I keep hoping it a bad dream. as flash back of the stories go across my head and I remember sitting in front of the tv everyday to watch my stories. so much of my life revolved around the soaps. I thought I would be able to someday past this down to my child. The Soap are more then a television show. it is a generation thing and I trust the Actors will move on with better things. But still they will be miss. I am praying I am able to make it to the… Read more »

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone, Silence the pianos and with muffled drum Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come. Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead Scribbling on the sky the message OLTL Is Dead, Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves, Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves. OLTL was my North, my South, my East and West, My working week and my Sunday rest, My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song; I thought that love would last for ever: I was… Read more »

It’s too reminscent of AMC’s final promo. Has ABC gone so cheap that they can’t even come up with some originality? At least CBS gave GL and ATWT final promos that were significantly different from each other.

And at least CBS gave GL a proper ending! Not like the liars at ABC who told us we would get one too but left us without an ending on AMC & probably none on OLTL too!

Heather
Guest

They also gave ATWT a proper ending which was even better than GL’s ending.

Can’t wait to see how OLTLwill end. Erika Slezak say that she thinks an alternate ending was filmed in case the Prospect Park deal would fail. Let’s hope that she’s right and that they air this version instead.

What I realized, while watching Vicki in her early years, was;
I grew older along with her..
The original cast and those who followed later, all look so very young in the flashbacks, as did I during the 60/70’s..
A soap is the only series that one will and has aged along with the cast / 43 years later, here we are, gray with wrinkle creams (some of us)

Send your SOAP BAR’S to the Abc studio in NYC and show your fustration, by BOMBARDING THEM with soap, which is arriving from all across the United States and Canada. WE NEED to do this so that it can MAKE the News, and draw public support……!!!!!! And put the Revolution show out of work BC of No viewership! So “we” CANT SAY, “HeY, it’s enough people sending soap, I dont have to.” No, ” WE ALL” have to do it..!

One Life To Live is by far the best of the remaining soap operas and the last week has me on the edge of my seat, scene for scene. The production & writing have been superb under the current show’s leadership. Losing this soap is disgraceful for ABC – release classic episodes on DVD of One Life To Live and I assure you the sales will be through the roof! Us diehard fans are not ready or willing to give up this fabulous show! I hope & pray ABC’s loss will be another lucky network’s gain…

Words cannot say the sadness I feel for the ending of my favorite show. What hurts most about it is that this show had the same potential it had 43 years ago. OLTL was the show that Rat Channel always ignored did very little promotion and seldom showcased Erika Slezak and Robin Strasser and many others like they showcased Susan Lucci and Tony Geary. The following and OLTL movement while not visible is and was the strongest movement on ABC. ABC and Disney will live to regret this poor decision. Its also shameful that they did not release or resell… Read more »

I totally agree with you. They should have released the rights to it to Agnes Dixon because someone would have taken it and we wouldn’t be losing it!! I think ABC doesn’t want us to be able to watch it anywhere. Jerks. After Friday’s episode, I won’t be watching anything ABC has to offer, not even GH because IMO, they’ve gone so downhill I rarely watch it anymore. I usually only watch OLTL and they’re taking it away. Sad.

I have watched AMC since near day one..
When it ended it took 42 years of my time watching it, with it, and it was hard very hard to deal with it being gone.
I have watched OLTL for 40 years, and now I must go through another loss..
It is a double whammy for me, and it is hard, very hard, once again…
AMC and OLTL were my only soaps- Those 2 hours will be empty for a very long time..
(damn Disney!- I wish I knew how/were able to put a course on Disney LOL )

Michael,
Please correct me if I am wrong. Wasn’t Ms. Nixon’s original working title for OLTL “Between Heaven And Hell”? And didn’t we hear “Luna” say that to “Cole” today? Wow, what a great episode. Just like everyone else posting comments here, I do not want this series to end.

Did AMC get this much Bra-hah when they were canceled? I know there was media attention, and I read stuff on abc.com, amd the like…. AMC, I read on this site Sunday, Jan, 9th got the Cover of People Magazine, and more media attention. What Im asking is, in your opionion do you think that AMC got the Fan-fare/ the Fall Out/ the Out Cry as OLTL?

Nobody will watch The Revolution just as nobody has watched The Chew. For over 40 yrs these time slots have belonged to AMC and OLTL, the only people that tuned in to ABC in those time slots were the long time soap fans that HATE ABC for cancelling AMC and OLTL. These new shows are GARBAGE and will be BOYCOTTED. AMC didn’t even get an ending??? I will still tune in to ABC to watch GH, but not before. I even change the channel during GH if an add for The Chew or The Revolution come on, Just the adds… Read more »

I can’t believe that all of the soap operas are getting cancelled. I am so upset to see amc and oltl get cancelled. I can’t imagine not seeing these shows on. They have great storylines and are entertaining to watch. I want to have hope that another network will pick up these shows. ABC is making a huge mistake, there are too many cooking shows and talk shows on tv already. There is a foodnetwork channel and so many other networks with food shows. Every channel has back to back talk shows on. There should be more of a variety… Read more »

I really am truly going to miss OLTL. I have been watching since the 80′s. Too bad it wont be online, like All my Children. My mom watched All my children since it came on in the 70′s. It started with a half an hour, then one hour soap. I hope one day it will come back on the air or on line I really liked story of two sisters, Jessica and Natalie. It just broke my heart about the story line. Even though I have three sisters. Thanks for all those years. I will miss One Life To Live… Read more »

To end One Life to Live is absolutely horrible. I’ve watched that show since it first started. ABC is a horrible excuse for a TV network with the decision to have nixed AMC and now OLTL. ABC’s programming seems to go after the market of the mindless with its cheap budget, reality? shows. My entire family has already dropped watching all other ABC shows. How can a network not respect the audience and a show that’s been on for 43 years? And the way they’re marketing the View’s tribute to OLTL. Ratings, ratings, but no respect for a show that’s… Read more »

I won’t believe this is the end of OLTL and AMC. As a dedicated fan of both these soaps since 1968 I want to believe ABC will come through and the very least release these soaps to NBC, who has announced that they are interested in them. Please do the right thing, ABC. Fans are a very powerful tool, they can make you or break you. Do I see an end to ABC? Thank you to all the wonderful actors and crew who has kept soaps on a very professional level. Wishing you all the best.

There are enough reality , self -help, cooking and game shows on the networks to bore an elephant to death !! The “soaps” were an escape from daily life and allowed so many to live a little outside their own routine. All the soaps with their excellent stars, writers, producers, directors and staff will be missed but their contribution to the entertainment community will be remembered always. Happiness and good fortune to all.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
