Soap fans take a deep breath, read this, and keep your fingers crossed!  The New York Post is reporting late tonight that ABC has sold the online rights to All My Children and One Life to Live as part of a deal with TV, Film and Music company, Prospect Park!

Sources are telling the NYPost, “The daily dramas will pick up where they left off on a new, as-yet-unnamed, TV-focused online network once the soaps finish their four-decade run on ABC. The firm will take charge of the same cast, crew and talent — even soap star Susan Lucci as the villainous Erica Kane — and continue the story lines.

Prospect Park is said to be finalizing its current round of funding for its Hulu-style venture in the next month to 45 days. Other unnamed financial backers are involved. The financial terms couldn’t be learned. The soaps are expected to be the first of a number of brand-name TV shows to eventually land at the site.”

OK soapers, how would you feel if this indeed is true? That AMC and OLTL will live online? Can it be possible for Prospect Park to be able to afford the salaries of the large casts of these soaps? Will it be a scaled back version of the soap if moved online? So many questions! 

On-Air On-Soaps will be on top of this developing story within the next 24 hours.

I’m willing to bet if this is true, we will see actors taking pay cuts, or scaled back episodes with the big names in it. Which honestly in a way is fine with me as much as I adore Vicki (and her alters) I would love a continuation online.

I am excited if it’s true, though I’d love to have them on an actual network, on-line is fantastic compared to the alternative. My only concern is for those viewers who have been watching for years who don’t use the computer, there are actually folks who don’t, and how they will watch. I know my mom probably wouldn’t watch on the internet if i didn’t pull it up for her, and with people who are not internet-savy that could cause quite a decrease in viewership only for them to take them off again while ABC/Disney flips off the fans saying… Read more »

All that will mean is AMC and OLTL will have unsatisfying conclusions on ABC, before they finally peter out online.

Pardon me, as a soap fan, if it is coming from ABC, then I won’t believe it until I see it. And also, I will still DVR any shows put on in there current time slots….While watching them online…..Just my opinion.

Will they tell you the time they go on. ? For sure I will watch it here on the internet if thats all they can offer, It’s better than nothing, but will really seem strange then watching TV. This should be interesting I’ll tell you that much. I still wished someone would buy one of the networks on TV it would make it so much easier. What if our computer breaks down, than what? We are domed.

I am not a fan of this soap but I was a big fan of Guiding Light. This move excites me because if successful this could save the soaps as a genre. It even could revive deceased soaps. So please by all means make this a success.

To save some money, all they have to do is get rid of Erica. She sure is paid like she’s an actress, but she and Vanessa Marcil have got to be tied for the worst actresses in history. Did you see the fiasco with Erica overpowering Jane and knocking her out? What a joke! If OLTL went to the internet, they better have better (video) players than ABC has now. It’s awful and too frustrating for me. Even though I love the show, it would be a threat to my sanity to watch. There are enough open cable channels for… Read more »

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
