Actually, OLTL is not going on the internet, That project was scrapped last month. The final episode on ABC will be the final episode of the show altogether.

So disappointed this show as well as AMC is ending. I’ve watched both of these shows since the first day they aired. I’ve vowed not to watch any ABC shows except for Desperate Housewive’s after January 13, 2012. Hope the network has countless failures. Very sad.

Farah….you should be proud of your achievements this year. The scenes where Gigi talked Shane down from the roof yelling “we need more minutes” was heartwrenching. Gigi quickly became one of my all-time favorite OLTL characters and will remain so. If there is any justice, Farah, will win the Emmy this year in Supporting Actress if she submits that episode. I will continue to support JPL and Farah in whatever they do next. I am so sad to not be able to see Rex and Gigi every day, but I look forward to great things from these terrific actors. BTW…Farah……we… Read more »

Great fun interview, Michael. JP and Farah are a great couple, on the show and off.You can se how comfortable they are as a couple. They truly have matured as actors . Now , I feel they have really shown how good they can be. The return of GIGI has been written so well and played so well. The latest show captivates the audience.The reveal to Shane was so sweet and he handled those scenes beautifully. And today when Clint and Viki saw Gigi come into the room was priceless. Clint grabbed his heart which was meaningful because of the… Read more »

with OLTL’s rating increasing on a weekly basis, maybe TPTB should take another look at the potential harm this is causing OLTL’s viewers. If ABC keeps it, then great you’ll have all the support you’ve had for the last 43 yrs. If you don’t keep it………….then and this is where it gets difficut: I will NOT be watching one show on ABC daytime or nighttime. That does include The View and 2 of my primetime faves: DWTS and CASTLE (because I love Nathon Fillion on OLTL I followed him to his new show). That the kind of respect and loyalty… Read more »

Nope. ABC doesn’t care about soaps or soap viewers. The Chew replaced AMC. It costs 40% less than AMC and has equal ratings. That leaves more money in ABC’s pockets, which means more bonus money for the ABC executives.

Remember, corporations do not care about people. They only care about making money. Employees and customers are disposable and replaceable.

The best thing you can do is to vote with your viewership and wallet; spend your time and money on non ABC/Disney programs and products.

In reading your comment i question the part that The Chew has EQUAL RATINGS…Says who, ABC??? They will say anything to cover up their mistake,like taking AMC & OLTL off the air. I doubt they have equal ratings of these long standing shows. Besides have you watched any of the chew? Its horrible,the cast is nothing but a bunch of misfits & poor directing. This show won’t last 43 years thats for sure.

I agree! We soap fans are loyal. I will begin watching GH due to the fact that some OLTL stars will be going there. Starr and John just signed 3 yr contracts and who knows who else will follow. Cutter Wentworth went to Bold and Beautiful CBS and the old skye chandler is there too. Nora will be going to B&B so I’ve attached myself to that show now. GET IT ABC. We are really not happy with you now. I get it, Soaps cost alot more money than a quick one table talk show but how about combining the… Read more »

Watching this interview, i could see how sad & lost JPL was. It’s like looking in the mirror,i have been so upset knowing the show will be ending soon. I keep a box of tissues with me @ all times when watching. The charactors are like family too me,which is how most of this cast is with one another as you can see by watching Bo & Nora & Rex & Gigi interviews. This show was truely a blessing to have as a distraction to real life for 43 years.I will miss all of you in Llanview…

abc/disney doesnt have enough kids shows so there turning soapnet into a kid show.keeping the soap channel would be a good thing for us soap fans ,but it wont happen with abc,they want to save money and loose millions of fans for cheep crap reality shows.because they donjt care about the viewers.got to go ,one life to live started.

I can’t say much more without going on forever. I just echo so much of what has been said about losing OLTL.

Great interview, i’m glad they come across as upset that the show is going off. I can’t believe the show only has 2 full weeks left, and unfortunately I heard that tomorrow’s show January 2nd show will be preempted for a game, I hope not! And it’s so cool that Soapnet is showing a marathon of OLTL shows over the years. It’s so sad that OLTL and Soapnet are both going off for good soon. I still can’t get over this. I have watched OLTL when it was really good around 2002 (around the time they had the live week),… Read more »

What is ABC thinking? Shame on them for cancelling OLTL! I have watched it for years! I tweeted, fb, sent letter to ABC, begging had a petition! they don’t care what the people want! Sounds a bit like congress! Not to mention the actors are out of jobs! I will NOT watch another cook “The Chew” show or makeover home! ABC lost alot of viewers. Myself and many others asked Oprah’s network OWN to please pick up OLTL. If a network is smart they will pick up OLTL because duh! there are dedicated viewers! thousands! Sad for me, my friend… Read more »

I was wondering if we’re going to see Rex,Gigi and Shane again before January 13 or was “The Wedding” episode their final air? These past 2 weeks were great to see.I enjoyed every story they’ve been in.

I feel like I am losing part of my life with OLTL going off the air. They
have been part of my daily life for 12 years. I started watching in 2000
when my other favorite soap was cancelled. I watched Another World for 17 years and looked around for another soap that was as good and
found OLTL. Goodbye to all my tv friends. I guess it is silly because you don’t know me but I feel like I know all of you.
Till we meet again. I hope. Jeanette Wilkins

What JP said about “not seeing 90% of the people” he and Farah worked with is, sadly, true.
That is something I learned many years ago, in a similiar situation. The thought of never seeing people, who you worked with, and spent more time with, than your own family and friends, didn’t enter my mind. That is, until a co-worker said, “good luck Tim, and if I don’t see you again..have a good life!”
JP…you are so right.

Loved the interview with JP and Farah. I am so glad Gigi and Rex got back together. I cried at the wedding, it was so beautiful. I am not surprised JP and Farah are a couple in real life, because their chemistry is amazing. Looking forward to seeing JP on Loving Llanview on Jan. 21. Good luck to both of them in future endeavors.

I am one of those fans who has watched from day one. Erica, you and Robin have become “mature” ladies with me, I think the acting that you all have done has been from your hearts and to me the BEST on television…so my dear precious friends……thanks for the memories, the hours of escape, letting me pretend while ironing clothes, taking care of my babies, and for all the love……..LOVE you all!!!

The last two episodes were so heart-wrenching, but I think the saddest of all was a week or so ago; the shot of David and Roxy leaving the darkened studio of Fraternity Row. I couldn’t help wiping a away tears.

Have to agree, I think ABC screwed the pooch with their decisions about OLTL and AMC! My DVR will have a lot less recording on daytime now. I could barely stand that it would catch about 15 sec of that god-awful The Chew before recording OLTL!
