The ratings are out for the week of September 9th -12th for the continuation of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable channel’s ten-week fling with the first season episodes of Prospect Park’s All My Children and One Life to Live!

Once again this ratings period data supported the notion that more people are tuning into All My Children than One Life to Live.   In fact, the Monday September 9th airing of All My Children was the most watched program on OWN with total viewers at 235,000! AMC had three episodes of over 2oo,000 viewers for the week, and only the Thursday episode showed a decline to a low for AMC at 169,000.

Over at One Life to Live,  the series slightly dips from the previous week, but is still under performing compared to AMC with its best showing off the week on Thursday of 154,000!

Here are the official stats courtesy of TV Media Insights:

So what is your interpretation of the data on how AMC and OLTL are doing on OWN?   Do you think that given the fact that AMC out-performed OLTL on Hulu and OWN, it is a direct cause and effect of missing key characters and not gripping stories form the start of the revival of One Life?  Or, do you think it’s just because AMC originally has had more cache name recognition over the years?  And, are you watching the soaps on OWN?  Weigh-in below!

Oprah I think both shows have shown you will have a hit on your network. Add in those of us who caught the shows online, both shows will have an increase in viewership once fresh ones return. Well at least when AMC returns since OLTL is on hiatus.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

OLTL stories did not begin very well but picked up near the end…a few characters like Roxy and Jessica shouldve been there…Victors return lacked suspense…i feel Victors return was too short, and that hurt the show more than what gh wrote for the OLTL 3…Tea was more interesting on GH…there was too much focus on Shelter…when i went to clubs i never seen any high society women like Viki there having lunch…a big wedding for Clint and Viki, imo, couldve brought higher ratings…a lack of story 4 Bo and Nora made their appearance almost pointless…why didnt Bo investgate who was in Victors grave after he was found alive…anyway if there is a season 2 i hope new writers improve things…i give the show a C- 4 its first season…ill always wonder what the reboot wouldve been like had Frank and Ron continued with it like originally planned…AMC has always had better publicity than OLTL over the years and talked about more…it usually was better rated when on network tv except in its final year compared to OLTL…

p.s. both reboots would do better if the repeats were on a more popular cable channel and aired later in the day like 6pm to 9pm…imo

Even after 4, Why compete with other Soaps, Put it on when there are no soaps playings. I don’t get OWN so I watch them on HULU, which I prefer. I just wished they released those numbers. They know exactly every IP Address that goes to it after all.

Mary SF

Call me old fashion or a purist, but in my mind a daytime drama isn’t the same when you watch them after 6 pm. Back in the day, when there were a lot of soaps and I had to tape some and watch them at night– never got into them as much. I know they aren’t live, but watching in the day, when they are being aired for the first time, without a fast forward button or avoiding commercials– makes them work best. At night they just seem like a poor cousin to the better funded and higher production values of prime time shows and prime time soaps like Dallas. But I have always been in a fortunate position work wise to be available to watch my favs in the afternoon most of my life– maybe I would feel differently if I couldn’t do that.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

Mary, I have been taping these shows for years, so I almost never actually watched them live. I didn’t find much on primetime that interested me, so I stuck with all my shows.

Mary SF

Unless Meg is Canadian, they don’t have HULU there, and OWN Canada license states it can’t air any scripted shows– so all they get on OWN are reality shows or talk shows. — they had a deal with FX Canada to show the shows until PP decided to go to only 2 shows a week so FX bailed— so in Canada they have to buy it from ITunes

Harry

Hey, Meg All Caps–what are you talking about? Trevor IS on OLTL? Are you speaking of the other two actors who had to go to GH?

I watched AMC to support it, but I really couldn’t get into it. I watched every second of OLTL. The characters are so much more interesting. I would be devastated if OLTL didn’t return. They could improve the storytelling, but I could tell they were improving.

DVRing the repeats of AMC on Soapnet. Getting close to the final episode. Crying all over again. Why is it taking so long for PP to start production of AMC?! Also watching OLTL on Hulu to show support. I think AMC has always had a larger audience. OLTL ended with a large audience because AMC viewers were watching to show support. Both great soaps but I just think PP’s AMC was written better. I started watching OLTL but it just got very boring. I am watching the rest of OLTL now so I will be ready for season 2 and hope that it will be better. There are wonderful actors in OLTL, the storyline was weak. PP needs to get moving, bring back our original actors and start production!…….please, thank you. Recast only the actors that can not return.

They are repeats if they were new more people will watch. They are also on when the other channels have the bold and beautiful and days.

I tried both on HULU and basically, the story on AMC was way better. More gripping, great acting with Angie/Jessie/Brooke etc….This actually surprised me since I had stopped watching AMC about a year before it went off the air.
OLTL was my favorite and I loved the old characters. HOWEVER the nightclub scenes and drugs turned me right off. It had nothing to do with recasts. I loved seeing David and Dorian but it wasn’t the same feeling. I don’t know why. It had nothing to do with Todd, Starr or McBain. Why can’t people get it. A nightclub with drugs is not in my demographic. I hope they can save OLTL in some way shape or form.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I understand the need to have Shelter – but I agree, in the beginning they focused way too much on the club and not other stories.

Stefan

OLTL majorly dropped the ball with Victor’s return from the dead storyline…..THAT hurt the show in a big way I think…

curry-girl
curry-girl

Totally agree. The lack of reaction and concern for Victor being alive especially by his own sister Vickie was the beginning of the end of OLTL.

rebecca1
rebecca1

we’re just rehashing the same conversation. OLTL reboot was not good; only picked up slightly toward the last few weeks. Thus, they supposedly hired new writers. Only if/when OLTL returns will we know if the stories improve and thus their ratings…

There were no and are no numbers/ratings on HuLu..
HuLu goes by what is most popular and ”both” AMC and OLTL were in the popular top ten..
So, both soaps were doing very well.. Both rebooted well..
Nobody can say the numbers for OLTL were low, there are no numbers ratings on HuLu..
Which is better is merely assumed by peoples personal preferences, not numbers/ratings..

And, iTunes do not rate.. It goes by how many downloads and people downloading do so for many different reasons, and still not ratings..

Why are they only counting people 18 to 49? Not enough interest in 18 to 49-year-olds is part of the reason the brainiacs at ABC canceled the two soaps! I’m way over 49 and I’m sure there’s many more of us oldies out there watching. Do we not count? Is our loyalty to the soaps not important enough?

cri cri

Sadly 50+ doesn’t matter to advertisers – which is a big part of the problem.

Marlene

I totally agree with Peggy. Why limit the age to 49. My God! Most of those people are out working . It’s the semi or semi retired that are the backbone of soaps. We are the ones that have been watching these programs since their duration. Personally I haven’t liked AMC for over 30 yrs. I have been a faithful viewer of OLTL since before my first child was born , and that was in 1969!! I will be more than upset if “after all this”, they pull the plug on OLTL. I know it was hard at first getting to know all the “new” characters on OLTL but after giving it a chance I totally fell in love with it again………C’mon PP……….keep this showing coming.

su0000
su0000

No you do not count lol Well, you do as a number but not as a desired customer ..
You do not fit into the ”advertisers” demographic of what they want..
The ”18 to 49” are the important numbers that count in the ratings..
Sponsors don’t look at how many viewers they look at the 18 to 49 numbers. 🙂

Christopher

Perhaps all of us 50 yr old and older AMC &OLTL fans can HELP the writers out for both shows story lines afterall most of us have been watching one or both shows for MANY years and we can probably create fantastic weeky stories at least for the main characters after all we know their history inside and out…their family trees, their real true loves, and their children and even their childrens children and the evil people they have known over the years especially those who refuse to die…the monsters and the mobsters from their lives and so on. ..A THOUGHT… Perhaps both shows producers/writers can work together and set up a web site or something …a contest if you will so that anyt true loyal and and long time viewer over 49 who REALLY KNOWS 1 or both shows history can write in and suggest better story lines and once those ratings come in the winner OR winners will win a GUEST SPOT on their favorite show because after all …good story lines equal BIG ratings period & who better to give the writers great ideas for more desirable stories are the long time loyal AMC & OLTL viewers!!

I bought Hulu plus to watch OLTL – I started watching AMC to support both shows. Forget it. I’m done. I’m sick of the nonsense from PP. those guys don’t know how to do a soap- hire people who can.

I am very much enjoying both and tune in every chance I get! Thanks OWN and PP.

The key to any successful show is good writing — you can have all the great characters in the world and if you don’t have solid story it won’t matter. AMC may not have had as many vets as OLTL did, but they had better writers in place and it showed on screen. Ron Carlivati set the OLTL reboot up to succeed with the show’s final episodes and in my opinion the writers dropped the ball with too many new characters and silly plots that didn’t hook viewers.

kathryn

I believe it is possible that people have stopped watching OLTL because of the fact that it has been put on hold. I will be disappointed if it does not return, both shows are good but OLTL has always been my favorite. However, with Prospect Park’s decision to delay production, people may not want to invest their time when they think the show will not continue. I feel that way to a degree.

lance

one life to live will not be back. lets face it, the reboot sucked big time. lets move on and watch season 2 of all my children soon. one life to live really was awful. poor writing and even poor erika slezak couldn’t save one life to live. rip one life to live.

The reason there were more viewers for AMC might be that there were still new episodes. The episodes for OLTL had already been seen.

Samantha

I have watched One Life to Live everyday since it’s been on Own. I just feel like no matter how much people watch the executives of the show just don’t want to air it. Online , tv, or Internet!!!!!!!

Debbie Hamilton

I don’t watch Own because I have seen AMC and OLTL on Hulu and I don’t care to watch them over again. Why are they counting the ratings by what is watched on OWN. Probably alot of other people feel the same way. I never missed an episode of either show.I am really getting tired of this run around up and down maybe on and maybe off OLTL

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

They are counting them and watching because if they do well enough as ‘reruns’ on OWN, then OWN or another cable channel will be more likely to pick them up.

Debbie Hamilton

I hope and pray they are both back soon, either online or Own. I miss watching them, and thank you CTWildheart.

I bought a ROKU box back in March so that I could watch them on TV way before the Oprah Winfrey announcement.

Glad I did … ROKU is addictive!!!

I watched both on Hulu and Oprah. Although I miss Todd, Starr and John, I probably will get used to it, and I can watch them and support them on GH. I think the things that turned me off the most about OLTL were what they did with Dani’s character, plus all the cussing (it just seemed forced and unnatural) and also the whole bar atmosphere. Everything just always felt “dark”. I feel like the writers don’t really know the characters they are writing for. They all seemed to be “acting” their characters, not “being” them like before – with the exception of a couple actors. I believe it is mostly due to poor writing, NOT poor acting. I watched every episode though and I will keep watching when they come back on.

Sal Piscioneri

EXCELLENT now I WISH OTHER CABLE NETWORKS liked soaps. AMC was always a better written soap than OLTL. OLTL WAS EXCELLENT THE FIRST 10 YEARS IT WAS ON BUT LOST STEAM when THEY CHANGED THERE TIMESLOT AND IT WAS ON BEFORE General Hospital. OLTL did real good when Dark Shadows and GH we on before and after OLTL. I know I’m living too far in the past.

MIKE ZVIRBLIS

At a half hour each, it’s kinda like watching one program. So I can’t imagine NOT watching the two.

Johnny
Johnny

I agree with you Mike. I couldn’t keep up with both soaps when they were on abc tv because it was too much (demands of my job) but I promised myself I would watch both AMC and OLTL on line since they would only be 23 minute increments.
Both on line inceptions require work – stronger writing and more connectivity between characters.
I do feel like it’s almost one program, visit Landview and then visit Pine Valley, they are supposed to be near each other anyway. Actually I think they should just combine the two and make one show and in that way keep some of the fine actors at OLTL going strong.
What really bothers me though, is how PROSPECT PARK has everything so completely and totally shrouded in mystery. There’s been more melodrama behind the scenes than has been depicted on our computer or TV screens. The current “rumor” out there is that they are slated to go back into production “sometime around” October 21st, 2013 ~ yet, nothing official has been released by PROSPECT PARK and to my knowledge not one actor has tweeted or stated anything about “happy to be going back” or “enjoying the preview scripts” or anything like that. It makes me wonder what in the heck is going on ~

I watch both and I must say that AMC’s stories started off w/bigger bang! It was great to see the old characters on OLTL but there hasn’t been much sizzle or antagonism going on, though I do see it picking up now. I liked that they repeated the shows just not HOW they repeated them! I wish they’d show a new episode at the top of the hour and repeat that episode immediately after, at the half. And it would make more sense to move the shows to a different time when they’re not competing w/soaps on other major networks, say 12 noon or after 3 p.m. (EST) I hope that they continue to create more shows of both soaps! They never should have been cancelled! Nothing they’ve put in their places has fared much better! OLTL should have taken a page from AMC’s book and started their new story a few years down the road like maybe 3 yrs. instead of 5. That would have helped, too. Thanks OWN, PP, TOLN!

I just wish someone would pick up AMC and show it in Canada. I had watched it way back when it first started and watched until it went off the air, then it was in Canada for just 2 weeks, nicely getting to know the new actors and lost it again. OWN was to air it and then something happened so that they couldn,t air it in Canada. What are we??? Contagious or something ?? Don’t we count at all. Please bring it to Canada again. !!!

I love both shows! I rather watch on Hulu than OWN! When they asked Oprah to put the shows on when they got cancelled she refused and now she wants them because she wants people to watch her network so she can get more money! As much as I love AMC & OLTL,I will not watch them if they are on OWN!

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

While I share your angst….watching them on OWN will help these shows stay financially viable. You aren’t hurting Noprah by not watching – you are hurting AMC and OLTL.
And there are those who still cannot watch online, if they can watch on OWN, then I’m all for it.

Any discussion of last week’s ratings should note that on Tuesday, OWN accidentally ran a repeat of Monday’s episode (#34) skipping over #35. (Someone else will have to chime in as to whether or not the same thing happened with AMC.)

I’m not watching on OWN because I already saw all those episodes on HULU this summer, so all those people like me are not counted in the number of viewers. There are many fans who are waiting for the next season of episodes. Don’t tease us again with this off-again, on-again possibility of seeing OLTL.

Lisa Z.

Do these ratings even matter anymore? Prospect Park refuses to communicate with OLTL fans which is a huge mistake. Last week, the same OLTL episode was shown two days in a row on OWN. That would bring the ratings down.

I’m grateful for OWN because while I watched AMC on Hulu, I’m enjoying recording the show on OWN and keeping it for future viewing. I don’t watch OLTL and I can’t comment on it, but AMC was more “hit” than “miss” this past season and it deserves a second season, one which I hope OWN will also carry. It took AMC a few weeks to find some storyline traction and focus more on the returning characters as much as, if not more than, the new faces. When it did that, it worked much better, IMO. Still, from what’s been previewed, it looks like more returning characters will show up on AMC for season 2 (Bianca, Tad, Kendall, maybe Erica) and I want to be able to record those episodes, too. I’m very happy for the good ratings on OWN for AMC. If AMC continues to be successful, maybe OLTL can resume production, whether the lawsuit is settled or not. For all the OLTL fans out there, I hope so for their sake.

Am I wrong. I read OLTL isn’t returning because it didn’t do as good as AMC. Are they bringing it back or not? It was my favorite and I watched it on Hulu every time a new show aired . I didn’t watch AMC because I didn’t watch it on network .

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

All we have officially now is that OLTL is being ‘shelved’ temporarily until the lawsuit has been worked out.

No one Ever mentions the theme song to OLTL and it is TERRIFIC along with the dances, characters perform. Especially TnB. The theme song written by Snoop Lion bka Snoop Dogg just makes me wanna dance in my chair and snap my fingers Everytime I watch the show. The lyrics, “It’s a brand new start, brand new art. I’m not scared. I’m glaaad” etc. pulls me into the show and keeps me focused on the fact it is a re-boot that premiered online. With that being said, the characters on OLTL are More gripping than those on AMC. 1. Simply because I know who they are, 2. The veterans have delivered even when story was not as interesting. They worked with material given and Most Importantly 3. Susan Bedsow-Horgan was no longer co-head writer effective around April 9th but the show premiered on Hulu April 29th. When revisiting the fact she left the show for personal reasons left a HUGE HOLE in storyline development overall. This lady Understood OLTL the way other writers did Not understand or Know the show. Her lose was a traumatic blow. She was at OLTL when the show SIZZLED and POPPED in the 90’s. The Very first show of OLTL made me cry with Excitement along with the first week. All this to say, Susan Bedsow Horgan was the missing piece to the show. She was executive producer during the Michael Malone and Josh Griffith years. Example: Marty’s Rape, Bo and Nora, The Gannons, The Vega’s, AIDS Quilt and Viki’s Powerful performance of split personalities best known as DID. Bottom line for me, OLTL is my FAVORITE soap and no matter how storyline development did not occur during the re-boot it kept me interested from beginning to end.

AMC was good but the characters left a Lot to be desired (meaning the recasts of popular characters). Yes, storylines Much better because Marlene McPherson did her research going back to a time AMC was my beloved show. Returning Billy Clyde Tuggle and how he interacted with Angie and Jesse just brought back a rush of what I loved about AMC in the late 70’s and through the 90’s. Loved seeing popular old fan favorites but only their storylines kept me watching but not on a daily basis. Surely, this is not a popular opinion but the fact Egorica Kane (over-rated) was NOT present actually helped me to enjoy the show and boost it’s ratings because it was not about her as it basically became in the 2000’s. Show was basically unwatchable but more watchable during the re-boot.

new people see the ”opening”’ of OLTL , which is very lame, and don’t watch because that screams what is to come is lame..lol..
Really, the opening is terrible and that is a turn away ..

I believe PP gave OWN a sweet deal to air the rerun soaps, a trial offer..
I wonder if Oprah will pay the big bucks to air season 2 ..
OWN has to buy the soaps to air them and trial offer has now ended,,

Both soaps need theme music opening that labels them as dramas of quality..
The openings are terribly lame lame lame and they label the soaps before one even would watch them as being lame ..

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I disagree about the opening…well the song anyway. I don’t like the ‘dancing’ it doesn’t really match the song – but I LOVE the song! I didn’t at first, but then I watched it with closed captioning and understood all of the words and I changed my mind.

Nope, both soaps are still internet ..
OWN is showing reruns, the first 40 episodes and no news as to if Oprah and her people will pay-out to air both soaps after they run on the internet/season 2 ..
OWN has to pay PP to rerun the soaps..

That is what we hoped when OWN announced this trial. But we don’t know about Season 2 yet. And just an FYI…you only need an HDMI cord to connect your television to your pc and then you can watch everything online on your tv.

Thanks! My tech savvy son just went off to college, so I’m learning the ropes. Appreciate the tip. I will be praying to the Gods (aka Oprah in this case) that this will bring soaps back to life on tv. Hopefully the Internet ppl will be bought out or play nice together with the tv ppl.

I,think that ,both soaps are excellent n I,m so happy ,that ,they,re back ,on the air/internet,whatever ,but I think that the reason why AMC,S,ratings were better than OLTL,S was the storyline between ,Jesse,angie,n Cassandra,that was such a dramatic story,even,if you don,t agree with me,you have to admit ,that that was 1 of the best storylines,that AMC has had ,in a long while,I see daytime Emmy nominations for Darnell Williams,Debbi Morgan n Sal Stowers,the writing for that story was so briliant n kick-ass ,it made you believe that cassandra was being Brutilized,I,felt like I was watching a Law n order SVU,story,I cnt wait for more stories from AMc,I,also cant,wait for more stories from OLTl,if they ever get ,their Lawsuit with Prospect park,straightened out

Johnny

I will state again that I do not care for the way PROSPECT PARK has handled certain issues – they should be more communicative with the fans (of both shows) and not keep everything so completely shrouded in mystery. Is ALL MY CHILDREN going back into production in October? No one seems to know. I suspect the actors have been asked not to tweet, not to issue statements – with the exception that I believe that PP asked Erika Slezak to release a statement since she has a huge fan base (and is a great and respected actress) ~ but other than that, we know nothing. Many of us bought ROKU devices, subscribed to Hulu Plus (that’s what I did anyway, I’m in front of enough computers at work) and have been loyal fans for years. Don’t we deserve to have accurate information about our shows given to us? It’s all been so sketchy and scattered (like some of the on line scripts but that’s another topic for another time) and above all, so terribly vague.
I won’t ask about One Life to Live since it’s been placed “on hold” and even that seems terribly wobbly but if they are going to concentrate more on ALL MY CHILDREN than it would be nice to at least give us a production date.

Tracey
Tracey

I totally agree with you. I emailed PP this week, stating my displeasure with the way events didn’t unfold as fans were originally led to believe. I understand and appreciate that is venture began on uncharted waters and there is no set formula to this. If you release a statement saying the objective is to resume production in time so there are no interruption of shows and then a month later or so announce each show is going to have a season finale with no real/honest explanation as to why the change, that is going to upset fans. Here were are in mid September OLTL is being shelved indefinitely and no firm date for AMC. Should PP be surprised fans are in an uproar given we don’t know all the reasons behind the their decisions because PP won’t tell us. That was my basis for the email.
I was very nice in my email and I did thank them for bringing the shows back, also that I would always be a loyal fan.

Robin Strasser has tweeted more than once she keeps hoping to hear something from PP.

As far as the ratings, this season was rushed at best and AMC had the better storylines. I hope this summer PP has gotten their duckies in a row and both shows will come out firing on all cylanders. OLTL finished with the better cliffhanger and if written well, OLTL could have several juicy stories spun from the cliffhanger.
I sincerely hope PP is still writing scripts for OLTL so when the suit is settled, they are ready to resume production immediately.

In my opinion only after a well thought out S2 can it be decided if one show is better than the other.

Thank you OWN for showing AMC and OLTL. I am watching both on OWN, much more convenient for me than on the internet. Been watching both soaps since 1980 and was crushed when they went off ABC. I will be disappointed if OLTL does not return. I watch both shows but OLTL has always been my favorite. Hoping Prospect Park reconsiders their decision to halt production of OLTL. And once again thank you OWN and OPRAH for showing AMC and OLTL.

I would tune into OWN daily for new episodes, espcially if they were repeated them later at night. Please settle this silly lawsuit and give us back OLTL!!!!!

AND if that doesnt work out… How about a hybrid,,, One Life to Live with All My Children (Or All My Childrens Lives to Live) . an hour long saga of life in Suburban Philadelphia (Llanview and PineValley) ..

Since they share the same sets and studio.. it would give us the possibility of Clint Buchanan Vs Adam Chandler.. Brooke and Viki being BFF’s, Dorian Vs Opal and even Jack vs AJ…. come on everybody – this could be great!!!

Nancy K

I really do agree with you on this one. This would be great to see all these actors on one show. It would be entertaining to watch!! The name could also be All My Childrens One life to Live!!

OLTL got me hooked during the final week, Yes it neefs tocome back to see the poentials

I cancelled my HULU Plus subscription as soon as I heard OLTL was “shelved”.

Lets face it, OLTL was not weak because of what went down at GH, it was weak becasue of poor writing.

While Iapplaud PP for taking this on, its clear to this day, they bit off more than they can chew.

Instead of working with GH in order to have limited access to three major characters, they are blaming GH for killing off a non-contract recast and two kids. I never liked that they killed children but lets face it, they werent integral to the continuity of OLTL.

This is poor writing and poor management. I never really watched AMC but watched it to support the cause. Its definitely betetr written and more engaging. The acting isnt as good as OLTL. I wont watch anymore. I think the dye is cast and OLTL will not be returning. I hope it does but it may be too little too late at this point.

I watched both shows forever and rejoiced when they came back to life online. I DVR’d the repeats on OWN. I will watch them both again WHEN they come back. (hopelessly optimistic!)

I have no idea why one did better than the other. It is actually humorous reading peoples reasoning and explanations why they like one show over the other. Many times they cite the exact same things.

I think it’s because many so called fans just didn’t want to watch online. I don’t see how the method of the polls can be accurate when so many people record the shows for later watching. Also they are missing a great many viewers count by not counting past age 49. I guess my faithful viewing for 40 yrs for OLTL doesn’t make any difference, but I’m still watching because I love it and the characters.

PROSPECT PARK (supposedly) stated that they “refuse to discuss when ALL MY CHILDREN will return to production” (for season 2) according to what I read on-line, and of course, who knows what to believe anymore. The rumors were flying for a while that they were planning to resume production on October 21st, but now no one seems to know if that’s an accurate date. If anyone hears of anything since there has been no formal statement from PP please post.

I have watched both shows for many years. I can’t get OWN. I wish I could. I watch them faithfully on Hula plus. I still enjoy them very much. I hope both shows continue on for a long,long time. i am O K with the 2 shows a week ,if that is what they need to do.

I feel like I’m the only one who loved OLTL from start to finish (with the exception of the way they handled Victor’s return.. botched!) and was quickly turned off of AMC (too much Angie screeching and too much bad Russian accent). I liked OLTL so much, I stopped watching the OWN broadcasts and watched the last dozen episodes over the course of a weekend. Glad I did, it was great (although Clint’s meltdown wasn’t near as spectacular as reports made it sound … and thankfully the last moment in the hospital hadn’t been spoiled).

Shame if we never get any more, but to be honest, I think there was just too much bad blood between PP and ABC regarding the GH characters. GH saved OLTL and AMC’s butts by keeping the spirit of the shows alive (more OLTL of course but there were some references to Pine Valley along the way) and taking Todd, Starr and John into some different directions. True, Ron/GH did some odd things (like the Natalie stuff) but overall I think how they integrated everything was pretty amazing. Sad that we’ll never see any resolution to the Alcazar/Tomas story, because that could have been INCREDIBLE to watch those worlds collide. And now that the actors are playing entirely different characters on GH, I don’t see those characters ever coming back into GH continuity… everyone at ABC and PP is to blame for gross stupidity and selfishness.

OLTL deserves a second chance. great stories, great acting, great production values…

PP messed up everything by changing the number of episodes per week and then shelving the production, based on a flimsy lawsuit with ABC.. just figure it out… we soap fans are foregiving and we want our OLTL on a daily basis.

And forgive me for saying this.. but the MORE episodes are just PR — the budget for them should go back into the actual show, we need less MORE and more OLTL!

Repeat – the story episodes were great..need more OLTL, need more Viki, Clint, Dorian, Blair and yes even Jeffrey …

PS…if no news about the return, I will have to cancel my paid HuluPlus subscription…

I could not wait for either to come back. I have watched both since the early 1970’s and that year long wait was painful. I tuned in for the first few episodes of each and it was dissapointing and I stopped watching. I guess I was expecting for them to pick up where they had left off and so many characters are gone. I know that they are trying to capture a new audience, but for viewers like me, it is just not the same. I also think getting use to watching them on a computer is strange. I liked watching them on OWN much better. Now GH is great and that is because some people from OLTL went to GH.

Eva LaRue Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination, And Opens Up About The Loss Of John Callahan

For Eva LaRue, the past two months have been some of the most emotionally gut-wrenching and challenging of her life, following the passing of her ex-husband, father of her child, and dearest friend, John Callahan (Ex-Edmund, All My Children). The outpouring of support she has received not only from her former AMC cast mates, but the soap world in general illustrates just how dear Eva is to all of us, and how many people had special memories of their time with John.

While mourning the loss of Callahan along with their daughter, Kaya, there was some heartwarming and re-affirming news that any actress would love to hear. Eva was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her work as Celeste Rosales on CBS’ The Young and the Restless, and she is great company as her former AMC co-star Michael E. Knight (Ex-Tad) is also nominated along with her for his work on General Hospital.

The coronavirus pandemic has hit our country and world hard, but through it All My Children virtual reunions emerged as fans were engaged by the content, transported to happier times that brought them back to familiar faces in Pine Valley in which Eva participated along with her good friends, Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos and so many more, thanks to the EW. com weeklong event which concluded on Friday.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Eva in this very candid, at times heartbreaking, and open conversation where she shares details into the final days of her beloved John, her last moments with him, and how she tried to plan a memorial in his honor during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For so many of us, 2020 has certainly seen more lows then highs, but in the end for Eva, to receive a nomination now (an award she was last nominated for back in 1997 as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work as Dr Maria Santos on All My Children) couldn’t have come at a better time. Here now is our conversation with Eva.

I’ve been thinking so much about you.  I’m glad we could do this, and in the midst of the tragedy of losing John Callahan, and then receiving a Daytime Emmy nomination.  What was your reaction when you learned you were nominated in a category with none other than your former AMC castmate and good friend, Michael E. Knight (Ex-Tad, AMC, now Martin, GH)?

EVA:  Oh, I know!  He’s the first person I texted!  I was like, “Congratulations, Michael!  Did you ever in a million years think that you and I would be in the same category of anything?”  Then I said, “And when you win this, can I just borrow it for the weekend just to dress it up and take pictures with it… just want to borrow it, just babysit the trophy for a weekend, please?” (Laughs)

What did you end up submitting that landed you the nomination for your role as Celeste on Y&R?

EVA: I submitted a scene with Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R), who I have been friends for 30 years, if not more, and in all that time we had never worked together.  I met him when I was married to John O’Hurley (Ex- Dr. James Grainger) because John was over at The Young and the Restless at the time.  I went to a Christmas party with John to Peter and Mariellen’s house, and do you know who else was there?  Lisa Rinna (Ex-Billie, Days), and it was before she had gotten Days of Our Lives. She was dating Peter Barton (Ex-Scott Grainger, Y&R) at the time. We both ended up on soaps at the same time.  So, I submitted a scene with Peter, who is amazing, warm and open and such a great actor. Then I submitted a scene with my on-screen daughter Sasha Calle (Lola, Y&R) – I love that girl, and another one with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R) who has also been my great friend for a couple of decades. The other scene I put on my reel was with me and Jordi Vilasuso (Rey, Y&R) who I also adore.  He is awesome and such a sweetheart.  I only had two months worth of material to draw upon.  So, I just submitted the scenes that I liked the best, and they all were within story, and all made sense.

Where is Celeste supposed to be now?

EVA:  She went back to Florida, and that was that. I would never say never to anything, but it was always supposed to be a short stint, and it was great.

So not only is it you and Michael E. Knight, but Jeffery Vincent Parise, Chrishell Stause, and Elissa Kapneck. This Guest Performer category is loaded!

EVA:  I know! I know and love, Chrishell (Ex-Amanda) because we worked together on All My Children, too, right before I left, and she is a doll.  She just might be the sweetest, kindest, girl on the planet.  She literally might be the sweetest person who ever lived!  I don’t know the other two nominees personally.  So, I’m excited for them too.  It’s such a diverse category.  It’s just really fun to be nominated with all of them.

You were nominated before, though, for your work as Maria on All My Chldren during the emotional baby switch storyline; working opposite Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica) for a lot in it.

EVA:  Yes.  I was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for All My Children, and I was nominated for Best Original Song.  I wrote a song when Maria came ‘back from the dead’ to All My Children, with a producer friend of mine from Miami Sound Machine.

So, you’ve been doing all of these All My Children virtual reunions, which is so interesting that in this pandemic, people are looking for content, and they dip back into these beloved shows.  Was it fun doing the EW.com Santos Family reunion with everybody?

EVA:  Oh yeah, it was really, really fun.  I only saw in the big picture everybody else’s photo who was a part of it, and the people who I actually do hang out with the most, and see the most, and talk to the most, are Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley), Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo), and Sydney Penny (Ex-Julia).  I don’t see Sydney as much, but I do see her probably once every two years at least, but Sarah Michelle Geller (ExKendall) I see all the time and talk to all the time.  Kelly, Mark, and Sarah are the ones who walked me through that first week when John Callahan passed.  They literally were on the phone with me, the three of them, almost every day, but I got beautiful outreach, from what seemed like everyone.  This is when no matter how many years have passed since you have been in daytime, that the daytime family as a group – there used to be fifteen shows, now there are four – and people have bounced around and they are on other shows- – but the entire soap opera community reached out,   I cannot even tell you how much that meant to me.  It was overwhelming, and it was really, spectacularly beautiful.

I hope it was some solace to you knowing how much people loved John, and also that they love and care so deeply for you.

EVA:  I mean, people who did not even work with John reached out.  Every soap was represented by getting a hold of me, sending a text or a phone call, or if they didn’t have my personal information, they tweeted, or whatever it was… literally from every reach of soapdom.  It was amazing.

And your relationship with John was amazing with all of the ups and downs you went through; that you remained such dear friends.

EVA:  We remained really great friends all the way.

Photo: JPI

I so remember when the two of you first got together and it was this storybook real life soap couple romance.  John was always so sweet to me.  I was so, so sad, and you know, my heart just broke for you.

EVA:  I think it was just such a shock.  I don’t think anybody, and even Kaya were talking about it, because she graduated this week, and her dad is not here.  We’re not having a graduation, because of COVID-19, which sucks on top of it, but we were just kind of talking through the feelings of it.  She said, “You know what’s weird?  I guess I never pictured dad getting old, and I always wondered why, and now I know.”  When I would get on John about his heart or his health, he used to always say, ‘Oh, don’t worry Evala, (he always called me “Evala”).  I’m going to be here.  I’m going to be here a long time.  I’m fine.  I’m going to be here to walk Kaya down the aisle and see her kids and all that.  Stop worrying,” Every time he said it to me, something in my gut said, “I don’t think he is.  I don’t think he is,” but I always just dismissed that.  But never in my wildest dreams did I think John wouldn’t make it to her high school graduation.  He was only 66.

Photo: JPI

I had heard you ended up running to Palm Springs to be near John.  I can’t even imagine what that must have been like.

EVA:  The only good thing about this pandemic is that we had been shut down for only two weeks at that point.  Kaya and I got in the car.  John had some heart procedures the day before, on a Thursday.  I called him in the morning before he went in for the procedure.  I said, “Call me as soon as you get out of there.  Call me as soon as you come-to again, and you’re good,” and he said, “Okay, I will.”  I said, “I’m going to send Kaya out to you on Friday for the weekend, just so you have somebody to hang out and watch you, and I might come out too,” And then, I said, “Maybe, I’ll come down too in case you are feeling weak, just to watch out for you for the weekend.”   So, he called me after the procedure.   I said, “I cannot believe they sent you home! You just had some major heart stuff done.”  He said, “Oh no, they said I’m fine.  It was just run-of-the-mill heart stuff, angiogram…”  I was like, “Are you sure?”  He said, “Yeah, I’m fine.  I’m just tired.  I’m going to go to sleep.”  I said, “Do you want me to send Kaya out tonight?” and he was like, “No, no, no.  Send her tomorrow.”  So, in the morning, I called him at 9:00am.  No answer.  I texted him.  He always texted me like Johnny on the spot, and then texts me immediately back.  So, I call him again at 10.  Nothing.  His best friend calls me about a half-hour later, “Hey, I talked to John at about 8:00 this morning.  He said he was feeling really, really shitty and was going to go back to the hospital, and then, I texted him again at like 8:30 to just tell him something, and he hasn’t texted me back, and he always texts me immediately back.”  I said, “Oh my, God, I’ve been trying to get a hold of him for two hours; he hasn’t texted me back,”   I said, “You know what, I’ll call you back.”  So, I called his friend who lives down the street from John, and I said, “Go to his house, please right this second, knock on the door, jump the fence, knock on his bedroom, he might be asleep, I don’t know.”  So, he gets there, nobody is answering.  I said, “Break into the house please.  So, he did, and John was collapsed in the bathroom.  They called the paramedics, and as soon as they called me back and said, “John is unresponsive in the bathroom,” Kaya and I threw everything in the car, and what usually takes us two and a half hours without traffic, we made it down there from Los Angeles in an hour and forty-five minutes.

Photo: JPI

I don’t know how you made it down there in one piece. Thank, God!

EVA:  I drove so fast, like literally broke all land speed records and thank God because we got there just in time.  He was in emergency.  He hadn’t been put up in ICU yet, where we wouldn’t have been able to see him.  They weren’t going to let us in the hospital.  Thank God the person answering the door was an All My Children fan.  She was the one saying, “Sorry, no one is allowed in the hospital, no one can come in,” and I was like, “No, no, no, my ex-husband just came in.”  She said, “Was it Edmund?” and I said, “Yes, it was Edmund!”  She said, “Okay, follow me.”  Thank God for All My Children.  Thank God.  So, we followed this woman secretly, and we get to spend a half-hour with him in Emergency.  He was already on life-support, totally unresponsive, but we got to play John his favorite music, we got to just sit there and hold his hand and talk to him, and tell him how much we loved him.  Sarah Michelle Gellar called right when we were in the hospital in Emergency, and she said, “Put the phone by his ear,” so I put the phone by his ear, and she talked to John too, and she told him how much she loved him.  She used to always call him “GP”, which was short of grandpa, because she came on the show when she was 15, and she didn’t have a dad, and John acted like a dad to her – but she used to always call him “grandpa”, and he hated “grandpa”, so he was like, “You can call me “GP”, but not grandpa,” so she always called him GP.  I just put the phone by John’s ear, and what was crazy is that when she talked to him, his feet started twitching.  He started moving his feet.  Then, when Kaya was talking to him about Yankee season, he started moving his feet.  We were kind of hopeful that something was changing for the better.  We had about a half-hour with him, and then, they took him up to ICU, and then, we knew we couldn’t see him again.  They called us later that night that he had passed.

I am just so thankful that you got to see John one last time.

Jack Wagner On 'When Calls the Heart' Renewal By Hallmark Channel: "WoooHooo Season 8 Thanks to All of You!"

EVA:  I thank God every day that we got to say goodbye, because if we hadn’t gotten there in time to say goodbye, I just don’t know.

It’s very rare that a couple after a divorce, who have a child, and went from romance to dear friends, end up maintaining that relationship so many years later in their lives.  I know so many people who were together at one point in their lives, for years, and they don’t even talk to each other now.

EVA:  Well, you know, like any divorce, the first four years afterwards were super contentious but then, by year five, we kind of had this major breakthrough, and from then on, he was one of my closest friends, and one of the things we always kept alive for each other was we loved to  dance together. We fell in love, I think, dancing because originally our characters on AMC met at this country-western bar, and we had to take country line dancing lessons on the show.  They hired a choreographer for us so that during those scenes where we were falling in love, we would actually be able to do a two-step! So, we went out and practiced at Denim and Diamonds, which was a big country-western place in New York City at the time.  We used to go out with a whole group of us.  It was me, and Teresa Blake (Ex-Gloria) and Kelly Ripa, and her boyfriend at the time, Winsor Harmon (Ex-Del), sometimes Walt Willey (Ex-Jack); we just had a whole crew of us who would go out country dancing.  John and I also loved singing together.  He had the most amazing gravely kind of rockstar voice, but his real talent was harmonizing.  He could harmonize to anything.  So, when he would come over, we would sit in the kitchen and sing, and sing, and sing until the late hours because that’s what we loved to do, and that’s what he loved to do.  That’s one of my favorite last memories of us.  He was just over the month before, and Kaya’s bedroom is near the kitchen, so she came out and was like, “Can you two shut up?”  It was like two in the morning and we were still singing in the kitchen. (Laughs)  John was my dear friend and my confidant.

Were you able to have some kind of service during this stay-at-home pandemic we are all dealing with, in order to mourn the loss of John?

EVA:  It’s been so crazy.  We couldn’t even have a funeral.  That’s what made it all the more heartbreaking.  There were less than twenty of us, and we just got on a Zoom call and memorialized John.   I thought we were going to do a big Zoom memorial, but it seemed so overwhelming and so impersonal, it just was rubbing us wrong in every way.  Every way we were looking at it, we were like, “Oh my, God, we just can’t.”  We wanted to invite everybody he had ever worked with, and we were like, “No, we want to do that when everything can open back up again, and invite every person, and have a party” because John was always the life of every party.  Maybe we can do that in the fall or next year.  I kept trying to write something for the small memorial we did do for three days.  I kept coming back to this one song, because John was always the consummate bartender, too.  I sang a song that Bette Midler sang on the very last episode of Johnny Carson.  It was “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)” and it’s about a bartender who has got a big personality and a lot to say.   I changed some of the words around a bit just to reflect who John was, and so, I ended up singing for it instead of speaking.  We always talked about that last episode of Carson; how stunningly emotional it was when Bette sang that song to kind of sing Johnny off for of all of his years on the air.  So, that’s what I did and because we loved to sing together, it just made sense.

Photo: HutchinsPhoto

I do think you touched upon something, earlier, too.  I don’t think any other genre would have that kind of unbridled camaraderie.  It’s such a family, like you said.  I don’t think you would find that quite like this; certainly in show business. 

EVA:  I really don’t think you can. Even though there is always a good amount of competition in the soaps as well; between the soaps it’s like they are any sports team, but there is always a level of respect, love, and familial connection within the community.  I think that is why they have stood the test of time.  I really do think that is what hooks our audience, that is what keeps them there after all of these years, even though unfortunately the genre is antiquated looking, there is something about it that is nostalgic, familial, and comfortable for people.

Photo: JPI

Every time I talk about All My Children, why do you think everybody go ga-ga for it, when it’s been off the air for several years now?

EVA:  It speaks to people’s childhoods.  It speaks to how we grew up.  You can’t undo nostalgia.  You can’t.  It’s in the way we grew up, the things we loved, the things that we scheduled our lives around, the people we fell in love with on the shows that we watched, who we cared about and loved their storylines. I grew up watching All My Children, General Hospital, and Days of Our Lives.

It must have been a spectacular moment for you when you realized you were actually in Pine Valley and a member of the cast of All My Children then?

EVA:  It was amazing.  I was a fan when I got the show.  I was a straight up fan.  I fangirled walking through that dressing room hallway for the first time! I was trying to keep it in check, but you know … (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

So, in closing, you would say, “Thrilled to be nominated”?

EVA:  Yes.  So fun.  It has really been a rollercoaster of a couple of months here.  That nomination was literally the bright, shining spot in all of this.
