Hell hath no fury like soap fans, Jimmy Kimmel!  The late night talk show host of ABC”s Jimmy Kimmel live apparently thinks there is only one, count em, one fan who will be watching the new One Life to Live when it premieres on April 29th!

In his opening monologue on last night’s episode, Kimmel poked fun at Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dog) for writing and producing the new theme song of the revival of One Life to Live!

Kimmel then says Snoop, who had changed his name several times, is now going to have to change his name to “Middle Age Housewife” and it goes on from there!

Watch the clip after the jump and then let us know what you thought?  Offensive to One Lifers?  Weigh-in!

    All in good fun! Could turn out to be a good thing, at least some more people will be aware of OLTL coming back. And let’s face it….when one thinks of daytime soaps, Snoop Dogg, or Lion, does not immediately come to mind. Seems like an unlikely pairing, but that just goes to show the power and appeal of OLTL.

    Meh, I thought it was kinda funny…and the comment about 1 person watching was more about the apparent incongruity of liking both Snoop and OLTL, not really about the estimated audience for OLTL. *puts away torch and pitchfork*

      Agree. Nothing to get all bent out of shape over.

    Once I saw the video I wasn’t offended at all, twitter made is sound like he was bashing OLTL. Snoop with OLTL is a strange combination, especially if you don’t know that he has guest stared before. If it highlights OLTL, I don’t see how it could hurt.

    Who cares what ABC thinks, they know they screwed up by canceling OLTL. They’re just bitter.

      Makes OLTL even MORE POPULAR!

    Pretty sure he didn’t say only one person would watch. He said only one person who watches One Life to Live is also a Snoop Dogg fan. Probably about right, those aren’t demographics with a great deal of intersection.

    I watched OLTL 5x a week for almost 3 decades and saw Jimmy Kimmel once when he was on Entourage….

    Well this is one person that will be watching OLTL and I won’t nor have I ever watched Jimmie Kimbrel -lol!!

    Wasn’t Snoop Dog on OLTL a few times a s a friend of Bo and Nora’s? I didn’t like the reference to the one fan. The rest was fine.

    • CTwildheart

      April 16, 2013 at 10:31 am

      Yes he was! He and Bo have history.

    I have to agree some what with Mrs. Rafferty & Advidreader. The biggest problem is his statement 1 fan. He needs to understand that OLTL has millions of followers & they range from children to Seniors not just middle aged housewives. There is where he stepped on my toes. I don’t watch Kimmel anyway & now never will. It is possibly good for OLTL to bring Snoop’s fans on board. Mr. Kimmel needs to know how much soap opera fans love their soaps. Might just tell him myself.

  11. GHFan

    April 16, 2013 at 10:06 am

    It’s his job. He wasn’t knocking OLTL but just poking fun at the unlikely pairing of Snoop and OLTL. I see nothing wrong with it.

    • Joliefan Forever

      April 16, 2013 at 10:31 am

      And when he Pokes fun at GH make sure you say the same thing!

      • GHFan

        April 16, 2013 at 1:41 pm

        I absolutely would because I wasn’t offended in the least by what he said. Even if he was making fun on OLTL (which I don’t think he was) I wouldn’t be offended. Please, offended because someone makes fun of a show I watch? Uh, never happen. It’s is just a show.

      • Joliefan Forever

        April 16, 2013 at 5:39 pm

        After you go threw what we went thru to get our shows back then to have some idiot like Kimmel make comments like ONE FAN, I don’t care how he meant it, Middle aged housewife was childish too, you would be “Offended” too…..

  12. Shirley Miller

    April 16, 2013 at 10:08 am

    I like Jimmy Kimmel and think he was just having some fun with Snoop Dog and One Life to Live. If you think about it, if you have never watched One life, it does give the impression that the soap revolves around “One Life” and I think this is why Jimmy made his remark about “One person” watching. Hope this helps to promote the return of this soap … and I will be “one person’ watching it!!!!!! LOL!!!!

    It was funny, and OLTL finally got a reference from main streem so they should be gratefull.

    • Joliefan Forever

      Grateful? We should be grateful to ABC?

  14. rebecca

    April 16, 2013 at 10:25 am

    I think it was rather amusing and derogatory at the same time. Jimmy was obviously mocking soaps…and Snoop for being associated with one, while insinuating neither had many fans. He also pokes fun with Dancing With the Stars, which I LOVE…but still the couple voted off goes on his show to have their “dancing shoes” officially thrown into the fire. Like everything, if you’re a fan of a person or a show, etc…your view won’t be changed. Likewise, if you’re not a fan…it just reinforces your negative opinion. And…I do like Jimmy.

  15. CTwildheart

    April 16, 2013 at 10:33 am

    I understand this brings the OLTL relaunch info to a wider audience and that he was doing this all in good fun. BUT…I don’t like that he continues to perpetuate incorrect stereotypes by saying Snoop’s name should now be “middle-aged housewife”. If our fight has proven anything, it’s that MANY people from all walks of life watch these shows, not just midd’e-aged housewives.

  16. Joliefan Forever

    April 16, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Maybe Jimmy should keep his mouth shut…..He’s an idiot! Isn’t ABC his boss??? Enough said about him then isn’t it?

    Hey, now even more folks know OLTL will be coming back on and that it’s on the Internet. Free publicity is great! Plus, mayb some Snoop fans will tune in just to hear it and get hooked like the rest of us! All great stuff! Snoop is a big fan of the show and has been a guest star a few times so its all good! Can’t wait!

    • Troy Turner

      April 16, 2013 at 1:39 pm

      I fall into the “any publicity is good” category. Kimmel was jabbing Snoop more than he was OLTL. As with the housewife jab-that’s just something we need to continue to fight. All in all, there’s nothing to see here-move along…

  18. danicajolie

    April 16, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    OLTL’s return has been all over the various media! Any publicity for it is good publicity! I like OLTL being on peoples lips! Jimmy Kimmel probably secretly watches it too! His dirty little secret! lol

    Well, the soap audience has always been stereotyped as for ‘housewives and seniors..
    True or not, they have been typed..
    But now, PP is trying to undo that imagine of soap operas..
    And the ssoaps have been made fun of by comedians since forever .. LOL
    most all started out as younger women in the 70’s and 80’s watching but they grew old along with 40/50 year old soaps lol ..
    wow a half of century aging with the soaps..
    BUT, many many new younger have joined in and always will join in to carry the torch on hopefully for the next 50yrs!
    Long Live The Soaps !!!!!
    ((all publicity is good publicity.. And Snoop can bring it on!!

    Jimmy pokes fun at everyone but means no harm. However, won’t ABC be eating a lot of crow when they find out how well OLTL does on line, while no one is watching their “Chew” or “Katie”….Oh, what a price ABC is still paying for their big faux paux.
    That’s what they get for hiring Frons from Hell!!!!

    • Joliefan Forever

      April 16, 2013 at 5:46 pm

      Karen, Frons did not cancel anything he just did not speak up when it came to the shows. I used to blame him too, but facts are facts ABC/D are the ones that cancelled the shows not BF, For AMC & OLTL to thrive on will be the BEST REVENGE on ABC!!

    Jimmy who????

  28. Mr. Jones

    April 16, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    Jimmy Kimmel is a comedian. And he’s also RIGHT! I’m a 41 year old black male, and am horrified and disgusted that this slug (AKA Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., AKA Snoop Doggy Dogg, Snoop Dogg, and Snoop Lion) is STILL being associated with the show!

    What the hell is wrong with PP/TOLN!?

    Consider this, from WIKIPEDIA:

    “In 2002, he released the album Paid tha Cost to Be da Bo$$, on Priority/Capitol/EMI Records, selling over 1,300,000 copies. The album featured the hit singles “From tha Chuuuch to da Palace” and “Beautiful”, featuring guest vocals by Pharrell. By this stage in his career, Snoop Dogg had left behind his “gangster” image and embraced a “pimp” image.”

    The (illiterate) criminal/thug life ‘image’ being sold as the only viable option for black American males, while also being commercially exploited by ‘Dogg-Lion’ and his ilk is one of the most damnable, venal, sickening and pathetic things to come out of the entertainment/pop culture industry in the last 15 years, and this man has been one of it’s prime peddler’s!

    Hey there, P.P. Charles Manson, apparently, fancied himself a musician, once upon a time. Why not see if he’s written anything that could be suitable for a theme song?

    How about using some of John Wayne Gacy’s ‘clown’ artwork to hang in Llanfair, while you’re at it?

    Jimmy Kimmel? You mean Ben Stein’s unfunny former game show sidekick is still on TV?

    Joel McHale shows that you can poke a little fun at the genre in an entertaining way on The Soup, occasionally showcasing some of soaps’ goofier moments with actual clips.

    Apparently all Kimmel can do is play to old, outdated stereotypes to try to get a laugh.

    But hey, if those idiots on The Chew have managed to stay employed, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Kimmel is considered a talent by the same network execs.

    I am no Jimmy Kimmel fan, but from what I have seen of him…he poke fun at lots of things, so I don’t see the harm in what he said…he is a comedian after all. I agree with the post that says he provided OLTL with free publicity! Those of you who are upset by this, just relax, it will be fine…you know that there are more fans that watch OLTL than just ONE for crying out loud…just be happy OLTL will be back on…can we all just enjoy and celebrate the return of our soap…No time to be angry…April 29th is almost here baby! woohoo!

    On one hand, what did you expect from an ABC ignorant? B) He at least told viewers we are back, C) Don’t talk about something you obviously know nothing about, D) He recently did a “Back to Brooklyn” show right after Sandy hit. He lived in my friends home yrs ago. They welcomed & FED the whole camera crew, for free all day, & in return got nothing, barely even a thanks. HOW RUDE!!!! We weren’t even acknowledged in the audience. I had to apply for tickets for us, like everyone else. He did comp them a few the first night. Woopie….To make things worse, outside the studio, you had to stand against the wall and a bird dumped on her head TWICE!

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.    Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
