UPDATED: All My Children and One Life to Live Premiere: TOP 5 On Hulu & iTunes!

The numbers are coming in over the last several hours and they are updated through the day so keep checking back, but fans are putting the premiere episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live over the top!

At Hulu, the soaps are amongst the most watched episodes being viewed so far today.  In this update this evening: AMC is currently # 1 and OLTL is #3!  In addition over at iTunes, in the all important “Top TV Seasons”, which tracks the popularity of a show with viewers who’ve purchased a season pass, AMC is #1 and OLTL is #2.

It’s important that the fans continue to show their support of these platforms and all-new episodes throughout each and every week to drive home the popularity of the genre and to support the vehicles where now Pine Valley and Llanview can call home!  What do you think fans? Looks like we accomplished our goal of kicking Mad Men out of the top spot on iTunes!

What do you think of today’s performance by the two soaps online ?  Let us know!

Hour shows were only 36 minutes or so. These are 27 so less than 10 mins different.

But the regular show is only 37 min long the commerical so reall it’s about the same length as tv. .

There should be no anger. Be happy we have them back at all! We worked a lot these past two years and PP heard us and worked right alongside us – even if we didn’t know it then! 🙂

I will be watching every freaking day!!

I want to send out a very special thank you to you Michael Fairman…..thank you so much for fighting the good fight along side all of the soap fans, and thank you so much for always keeping us informed with what’s going on in the land of soaps.

I agree! Today was a happy day for me where the soaps were concerned. I too want to thank Mr. Michael Fairman for supporting these shows, the fans and letting our voices-wishes and and wants be heard!

I too want to say THANK YOU for giving me back a piece of my heart. LOVE the shows. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the fight you kept to get our shows back!

I watched both but I preferred AMC. OLTL is really geared for a younger audience. I will continue to watch both for awhile to see if OLTL gets better. I am so glad to hear that both soaps are doing well. Yea!!! Now that the shows are doing so well, hopefully more of the original actors will come back.

Bam Carle
Bam Carle

I disagree. OLTL is geared for a…brighter audience? I can’t see a storyline involving a political scandal (Dorian) on AMC: it wouldn’t really work.

Kathy
Kathy

Political scandals require intelligence?

Elisabeth

So, people who watch AMC are dumb, while people who watch OLTL are bright and intelligent. Thanks for clarifying that for this moron, who would have thought any competition between the shows would have been buried when BOTH got a chance at revival.

Fans we should all give ourselves a hand for supporting our revived soaps on hulu as well as OWN. To be honest, I enjoy both soaps equally because they are more realistic now than before. I don’t think that OLTL is geared toward a younger audience, I think that fans are expecting the soaps to be as before. Yes I miss the old cast but I enjoy how PP has revived the soaps to stay current with society now. I have a feeling we will see more of the old cast in the future when they see how well the soaps are doing. To sum it all up, I love AMC& OLTL and thank you PP,

Llanviewer717
Llanviewer717

I don’t know that I agree with OLTL being geared to a young audience. I’m already hooked into Viki and Clint’s impending marriage and the next chapter in the Viki and Dorian feud. How will Bo and Nora cope with their adult son? What mess in Todd into now? What is the meaning of that circular symbol and tattoo? Poor Tea looks for lost. And best of all, what about the man in the hoodie? What does seeing him mean for our folks? Stay tuned.

debbielg1203
debbielg1203

the man in the hoodie is victor, todds twin. I loved oltl, but thought amc was just ok, think it is more tuned to the younger crowd.
would be better if they would tell us what happened 5 years ago!

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I think Llanviewer was trying to be kind and not spoil the surprise of who the hooded man was for those who may not have seen the episode yet.

As for AMC…they will tell us what happened in time. We are here for the story….

The newest one.

I have the newest version also…just bought my iPad mini a couple months ago…and it would not let me watch it either. I am, at the moment satisfied watching it at hulu.com. I can watch it on my laptop anywhere. 🙂

HULU on the ipad or iphone can be watched with a paid subscription to Hulu Plus for $7.99 a month. Totally worth it! But if you want to watch for free you can watch it on a regular computer at hulu.com

I agree with Kathy, AMC seemed better than OLTL. They have changed the characters and it will be interesting to see how it unfolds. Glad they are both back!

Robert

I disagree, OLTL was way better than AMC. It was current and the story easy to follow. So glad both shows are back!!

oltl much better than amc. But hoping amc gets better.

I love both, but I liking the more laid back quality of AMC…so far OLTL has been too loud…I guess I am just too old for the bar scene and music! LOL

I loved them and love watching on-line. Can watch when I want to and pause when I need to. Hopefully OLTL will be online for another 40 yrs. Woo Hooo!!!!!!!!!

Watched both shows and loved them. And the best part is being able to see them at our convenience! This is going to change everything: the internet IS the new TV. 🙂

OMG Both shows were awesome! It was great seeing Jesse and Angie still so much in love! It was wonderful to see the kids all grown up on AMC and how they unfold the mystery behind the shooting is going to be awesome! Whoever it was it changed Pine Valley and A LOT of the residents including Brooke!
OLTL was beyond my expectations, Loved every second of it epically that ending!! I LOVE BEING RIGHT IT FEELS SO GOOD!!!! Viki and Clint, Bo and Nora, Shelter, and that ending was just beyond!
I have NO complaints at all, Except I don’t like seeing my Girl Nat so missing John! Bring him home!!

I loved both episodes of AMC and OLTL today, and I will watch them everyday from here on out! So happy to see the veteran characters, and intrigued by some of the new ones. Many thanks to PP, the casts and crews, all my fellow soap fans, and you, Michael, for all the hard work that got us to this point! Our soaps are back!!!!!

I purchased Hulu Plus just to be able to watch One Life on my Ipad. Eight bucks a month is a small price to pay to watch a show I have invested the last 25 years. No brainer for me.

IowaMan

And Hulu+ opens a whole lot of doors to a whole lot of other great viewing!

This is so true! I purchased Hulu Plus a month ago in advance of the soap launch and find myself using it to watch other shows nearly every day! It’s very rich in content.

I bit the bullet and decided to go with Hulu plus for right now since I spend much more time on my IPad then my computer.. I just finished watching both shows … And all I can say is…. I am so insanely happy they are BACK! I hope the audience will build and build, once they discover how easy all of this is to access!

The biggest problem with Prospect Park having both shows just on the internet like on Hulu and iTunes is that a lot of older people either don’t have a computer or internet access so they can watch All My Children and One Life To Live.Just today I was talking to 6 people that live in my apartment complex who are older then I am and they knew both shows were coming back today but they didn’t know that you needed internet access to watch All My Children and One Life To Live.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

Those are the people I try to help. You can offer to host a viewing party…or go over their options. Luckily, many “older” people DO have computers and/or internet, know how to use them and/or have people around them willing to help.

I hope the momentum keeps up. Top 5 and AMC & OLTL just keeps getting popular & popular. Then PP will show’em (2 face ABC) how it’s done!!:) The tracking of viewership seems to be more accurate. Yay!! Thank you PP:)

I watched both shows starting at 5:30 this morning and both were great!! GO PP.

Loved both and will absolutely continue to watch. Best part is that you can watch anytime…

What does it translate into # of views? In the NY Times article today it said that the numbers have to be at least 500,000 every day for PP to break even. If they don’t hit those #s consistantly, these shows aren’t going to last. Pretty much all the actors have signed a 1 year contract. PP has 1 year to make this work.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I’d like to know the exact numbers also. I will do my part and watch them every day…

How many times must I watch OLTL to see it move up in the ratings? LOL! Already watched it twice today.

The internet and HuLu do not go by ratings.. they do not have a rating system..
It goes by what is Buzzing, mostly..
Web and network tv work differently..

CTwildheart

Views are counted once a day. So if you watch it on the same device in the same day it will only ‘count’ once.

I liked OLTL the best…didnt care for its Cosby Show type opening…shouldve been more like AMCs opening but OLTL is far more interesting. I plan to watch more to see if they can keep my interest up. The ratings sounds good so far but that can always change for better or worse…im sure some new viewers tuned in to see what the fuss was all about but will they stay and will fans stay with it in the months ahead…only time will tell.

Barbara Hawkins

I was so happy to watch All My Children and One Life to Live. The story line on both were great. I will be watching all the time.

Christy
Christy

so are the 30 minutes per episode all soap opera, or are there commercials within that time? (or any commercials)

I’ve been watching old OLTL episodes from 2008 and they’re all about 33minutes (no commercials), so if it’s all soap for 30 minutes that is ok with me.

how much is iTunes selling the episodes for?

I figure I’ll buy the ones I really like after I watch them on hulu.

RobertC
RobertC

Christy I received an email from Prospect Park in which it .99 per episode on iTunes or $9.99 per month for a multi pass which allows you to watch all the episodes

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I believe it figures out to be about 27 minutes of content…

OLTL Outstanding!!!! AMC Great! The only way they could be better is with more original characters, but I’m thrilled with what I saw today. I’m loving what one life had to show today – keep on bringing it on!!!

heidi

Great news!!! I hope PP knows how much you… Michael Fairman helped them get to those incredible numbers!!! Will continue to support them both! Michael do you know if Hulu can capture time stamps on their numbers and will they be able to report the “anytime” hours watched vs the “daytime”.

Ground- breaking day! I loved watching OLTL today! I can’t wait for tomorrow!!

As thrilled as I was to see my favorite actors back on screen on OLTL, they got me going even more with the ending. I did not expect that at all. I’m going to bed early so tomorrow’s show comes that much sooner…..

su0000

I;m surprised that OLTL isn’t #1, it is the better of the two..
and I’m a lifer AMC fan..
Maybe it because the name of the soap isn’t as grabbing for a look-see as AMC.. lol
(both dramas are awesome..

All My Children
One Life To Live

someone looking in would think which the better one by its title?

Nancy (Save Thesoaps)

I AM OVER THE MOON! WATCHED THEM BOTH TWICE ALREADY, THEY BOTH WERE INCREDIBLE, CAN’T WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!

PP should sell these shows to another cable channel, one month behing original episodes. TBS, TNT,lifetime. Are u listening.

Robert

I hope this is the final straw that will break the fatcat idiots backs at ABC when they realize they made one of biggest mistakes in broadcast history by cancelling these two great shows!

su0000
su0000

they will never see it as a mistake, and they are still making big money off of both the soaps.. jingle in their pockets for doing nothing lol whatta deal!!
and ABC still owns the soaps, for whatever that counts, they are still theirs..

Margie

ABC looks foolish in every news article over the last month. Variety, NY Times, EW are all reporting on the fan backlash. It hurts them plenty.

su0000
su0000

ABC dose not look foolish, they are taking care of business like all the mega power media Co’s.
ABC decided to fight not settle with PP, that is all, nothing more..
ABC has more millions of viewers than one could count, a handful of soap fans is nothing significant in their realm . 🙂
ABC is doing very well without us… sorry, but it is the facts ..
I’d love to see PP take them but it will never happen, sorry again..
Most all ABC prime time shows, and that is huge number of shows, get 6-9 million viewers and soap fans of soaps were 2+ million..
But!! PP is doing very well!!! so, can’t count them out.. 🙂

kay

ABC does not own AMC and OLTL anymore, they sold the rights to PP. They made money in selling them but their profit days of the shows are over.

Even if they don’t realize it…we know. 🙂

LOVED AMC! Not a OLTL fan, but I will favorite both on HuluiTunes and will turn on/download OLTL to have it ‘counted’. IMO, the shows have a better change of survival if they BOTH do well. Way to go, PP! (Take THAT, ABC).

” Where’s my shit?” Came out of Daniela’s month today and Todd’s eldest son.
” Baby Momma.” Came out of Mathew the losers mouth looking like he didn’t give damn about he’s own kid or her.
They disappointed me how they think it’s cool to want young people to catch
this garbage. Natalie went from mother to tramp in seconds.
Sorry I’m afraid Vicki might become a stripper next. Not joking either.
Who’s running from who? If they think I’m catching it again no way.

So there’s no one here but me thought this? wow….

“Young people” here A LOT worse in their everyday lives, in school especially.

Dani saying that was perfect for the story line. Matthew is a young man – and they say that!
I don’t think PP is trying to make this ‘cool’, they are reflecting today’s youth.
Why is Natalie a tramp for dressing sexily and dancing sexily? She did not look trashy to me.
Viki will not be a stripper! Please, don’t be ridiculous. The show is edgier and more realistic – not trashy. Erika Slezak herself said it’s not like Viki will start dropping Fbombs.

I was very happy with both shows.

I was SO EXCITED to watch AMC today, and y’all didn’t disappoint! I actually had to go back and watch the last AMC episode and get re acquainted! Today’s new episode was a bit more riske’ but GREAT! I loved it!

Bonnie

I also think that AMC was the better of the two today, more classic and true to itself. Loved right away seeing the love and playfulness of angie and jesse. Dr,. Evil ready for more, and the next chapter for Miranda and AJ and Petey. Thought I do not like the AJ and Pete character. Opal does not quite seem like the Opal I remember.

OLTL is geared for the younger set, sexing it up with Natalie, Dani, Destiny. Also was too loud hope this night club is not on alot or if it is maybe when it is closed. I did like the end thought tht was a nice surprise.

Lainee

I’m with you on the nightclub scene! My first reaction was that I must have aged too much but still reserving judgment…like you, hoping not to see too much of that noisy nightclub! 🙂

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
