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

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!

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.

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… Read more »

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 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… Read more »

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 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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

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,… Read more »

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
