AMC & OLTL Cliff Notes Viewing Guide: 5AMEST Episodes Posted! New Episodes Up for Ten Days FREE on Hulu!



Alright our dearest All My Children and One Life to Live fans, the time is upon us! We are t-minus less than 24 hours and counting till the first episodes of the revivals of All My Children and One Life to Live are posted for the first time on Monday, April 29th!

So with several questions still looming and perhaps not clear to our loyal, faithful, and amazing On-Air On-Soaps fans, we want to give you a quick Cliff Notes version (remember when we used those handy books to cheat on our knowledge of what Shakespeare was trying to say in written tests in English Lit in High School or College?) of the important facts of when and how to see  all-new episodes of AMC and OLTL, so you don’t miss a beat, and can get the full digital experience of watching these beloved shows return!  It’s their homecoming, and you should be there with open arms! So here is our round-up of facts:

* All New Episodes of AMC and OLTL will be uploaded Monday-Thursday at 5AMEST/2AMPST time to  The new episodes of AMC will live on the All My Children page and the new episodes of OLTL will live on the One Life to Live page.   Just because the episodes are uploaded each day at 5AM, does not mean you have to watch it then.  They are up for your viewing pleasure at any time during your day that you can log on to  Select “All My Children” or “One Life to Live” from the list of shows offered on the Hulu platform, or type the show name in the search bar and look for AMC and OLTL, so you can be caught up with other fans of the show before the next episode is posted the following early morning.

*New Episodes of AMC and OLTL will be available for FREE for ten days on Hulu! So count the first upload day as one and you have nine more days to catch the episode for free in case you missed it,  or simply want to watch it again.

* Hulu Plus is another way which you can be connected to new episodes of AMC and OLTL anytime, anywhere, at a cost of $7.99 a month.  With Hulu Plus you can watch new episodes through devices that display online shows on your television, such as Apple TV, Roku, Wii or Xbox gaming systems and some Blu Ray DVD players.  If you are not sure you want to pay the fee for Hulu Plus, you can click here to try a 1-week FREE trial!

*You  can also download episodes from Apple’s iTunes store using your personal computer or Apple TV.   You can also watch AMC and OLTL on apps from iPhones, iPads, etc. On Apple’s iTunes, ad-free versions of All My Children and One Life to Live will be 99¢ per episode (or $10 for a month of shows), for playback on computers, iPads, iPhones and Apple TV.

* Many long time fans are resistant to watching their soap on the computer- but with Hulu Plus and as stated above, most newer computers have the ability to run a cable from your desktop or laptop to be able to hook it up to your television! That way you can sit on your couch, spread out, grab some popcorn, and watch it as per usual!  Make sure you check with the company or store if you purchase a new computer to ensure you re able you to view the show on your TV set.

*Important Rules For The Road:  You can have your coffee with AMC and OLTL, you can have your lunch with AMC and OLTL, you can have a cocktail and watch what goes down in Pine Valley and Llanview, you can tuck yourself into bed and watch it before you nod off for the night.  The luxury of the new viewing schedule is,  you don’t have to consistently try to figure out if you taped or DVR’d the episode, if you missed the replay on SOAPnet, or if you missed the original daily showing!

We hope our Cliff Notes will help you enjoy the experience of seeing brand new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live!  Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns! And, if you will be part of soap opera history tomorrow!

I’m so looking forward to All My Children and One Life to Live’s return! I have missed these shows, and was extremely disappointed when they were taken off the air. I wish these shows huge success in the near future!

Thanks so much, Michael, for all the great information.

Can’t wait for the return of both, just hope they haven’t changed too much to attract the new, younger viewers. 🙂

Looking forward to the return of Pine Valley and Llanview!!!

AND no more interuptions due to weather , news breaks or Presidential stuff! I think I’m gonna like this. : )

I can’t wait…is this the same for the first episodes? I had heard that the first shows won’t be avaliable to 12:00 p.m. EST on Monday? I am now confused. CAN”T WAIT to watch them though no matter how long it takes to figure this whole thing out 🙂

Apparently it’s 5 AM EST now-I know of people that are staying up late on the West Coast tonight to catch the premiere. But if you want to sleep in tomorrow, you can-the shows will be there waiting for you!

Thanks for the info, Michael. So glad we had the chance to meet on Tuesday! Look forward to seeing you again!

I will be up at 0400 tomorrow to watch the first OLTL and AMC…probably won’t do that every morning…but definitely tomorrow. I Just hope I can sleep tonight….SO EXCITED!!!

I can barely contain myself. I am completely thrilled.

I will MOST DEF. be watching AMC!!! I can’t wait. I’ve missed this show so much.

I can’t wait! I watch almost most everything on my computer anyway and we will never have to worry about our shows being interrupted but some lame special report that wasn’t all that special to break into my show!

I think what will happen will be–

When the new to the internet people get to HuLu they will not know how to use the features as; full screen —
To make the soap ”’full screen”’ and they watch it in the small box lol

They won’t won’t know how to ”pause” or fast forward, use the closed captioning, and all the features to view..
((will they?

I am so looking forward to the return of One Life to Live. I watched it from beginning to its end on ABC over the years, and now I get to see it return again! Tomorrow cannot come fast enough!

If you search on-line there are offerings of ”a month free” of HuLu Plus..
(twp ladies I work with, last week got the free month)
If you bought a Roku you will get a month or two free (depending) of HuLu Plus with it..

I’ll certainly be waiting with bated breath for these shows.

I was wondering about the times..thanks!

I am so very happy to see my favorite soaps again!!!!

my heart is pounding so hard right now just thinking about tomorrow………..



The beauty of being retired and a night owl is 2am Pacific is just right for me to see the new AMC! 🙂 My pizza and cheap wine party is at the ready!

I saw the first episode of OLTL this morning.. All I have to say I really enjoyed seeing
Llanview and all the people that live there! AWESOME! And AMC children comes on after OLTL! I will watch AMC later! Now, when I see the cast picture of OLTL I have framed , I don’t feel sad anymore! You can watch them anytime you want, there is no
specific time. You will love it! It made me laugh , and it made me happy, seeing the
characters I missed a lot! VIKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Etc……… Happy watching to all!

Just watched the first episodes of AMC and OLTL online at Outstanding. Loved it. So glad they are back and can hardly wait for tomorrow’s episodes. Wow!

Are there going to be new episodes Mon. – Fri. or one new episode per week?

I’m just thrilled that my show, OLTL, is back and it’s exciting fans. All our favorite stars are back also. It’s memorable reuniting Bo and Nora and a new Matthew, a gorgeous Destiny and great music and it’s hip. A few new actors are also to look for. BUT, the ending of the first show is fabulous and a shocker…stay tuned…

So happy for the people who have the internet at home but I don’t. Guess the only way I’ll watch again is if I move to Canada! So disappointed!

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
