I watch on Hulu (don’t like Oprah, never have, never will & after she snubbed soap fans when we BEGGED her to pick up AMC & OLTL just after they were cancelled? Please…) and I’m loving AMC!! It started out a bit rocky, and some of the new characters are rather dull, I do love the fact that they brought back just enough veterans as well as SORASed some younger characters. The fact that they are keeping things edgy without being to the point of ridiculousness is refreshing & I’m hopeful to see season 2!!!

Watched OLTL on Hulu, not watching on OWN but watching classic OLTL on soapnet.
Need more male characters reprised on OLTL and get Natalie away from Cutter, she’d never hook up with him, if the writers would just honor the history, all 45 yrs!! Please bring back OLTL with more eye candy and better storylines!!

And I think AMC has a better time slot at 1pm – I think they should have kept it at 3pm on OWN.

This whole thing is annoying. These shows are old shows and have generations of people watching them. The whole comparison thing is silly. Not everyone watches the shows consistently. I watched on HULU when it came out and LOVED LOVED LOVED it and watched a little on OWN when I could but I work. It’s crazy to think fans have to watch the same episodes over and over just to hopefully keep it alive. What other show has to have that much validation ???? I haven’t watched and don’t watch AMC since I was a little kid (im 43 now)… Read more »

Those are terrible numbers,regardless of it being a shortened week. Oprah only did this as a ratings grabber for her failing network where her only popular shows are those cruddy Tyler Perry shows and that awful “The Haves and Have Nots”.

Thank God for Hulu & TOLN.

I didn’t enjoy watching online as well as I did on TV so I stopped watching. However, when they began to air on OWN, I DVR them and watch them when I always used to. Hope they keep showing them on OWN.

The future of how shows are viewed is evolving. Unfortunately, the rating system and attendant contracts/ad pricing (which funds these shows) hasn’t caught up. Viewers, understanding this, would/should show their support where it counts NOW! To only place blame on the corporations is shortsighted and selfish. All play a part in these shows success/failure.

I’m sure if the ratings were checked for all of us who starting watching AMC and OLTL online they would be close to the same watching on the OWN network. I’m happy to see as many people watching. Not everyone has a computer so if OWN will continue I will probably watch TV instead.

I watched them on TOLN . I ve been making a point to watch OLTL since Prospect Park decided it won t be returning . I feel very dissapointed and lied to that they told us to watch both shows. Out of loyalty to the network who saved us like a good soldier I did. They should of been up front and honest and said this is a competition and fans pick your show. I dont think Im the only OLTL fan that would not of helped All My Children

I agree with you. I have watched a variety of soaps over 25 years since before I was a teenager. I tried to watch AMC many times, but I never became hooked to the characters or stories. OLTL is my show. It’s my second family. I care about them. So when they both came back online, I tried once again to watch AMC. It didn’t interest me once again. However, it’s a soap that never has captured my interest. I hope PP does right by us OLTL viewers. I hope the lawsuit is resolved quickly and OLTL returns.

Marc quote
” I feel very dissapointed and lied to that they told us to watch both shows. ”

PP never ever promised us anything, they did not lie..
What happens happens, there were no promises broken, ever..
We were given our soaps back with no obligations, FREE to watch.

PP never told anyone to watch both soaps..
What we chose to watch and when to watch was in our own hands..

PP has never use AMC and OLTL as competitors. They want both soaps to do well, and both did very well; HULU top 10..

The numbers are more than I expected.. Those are good numbers..
Both soaps are ‘reruns’ ..
not many watch something twice so a good percent must be new viewers..
Also, how the heck can that many people be home during the daytime working hours to watch reruns at 1:00 & 1:30 pm lol ..

I watch Y&R and GH during the evening through the internet..

AMC has been a total disaster.The “veterans and their story line and history couldn’t save this mess.First, David,our beloved love to hate doctors story,is silly,how dare he now claim love and affection for JR Jr.,the Kane clan missing, leaves Zach with nothing to do there is no chemistry between ,that forgettable actress,the show is like a music video with too many directors,and too little talent.The tease at the end of season one,that Tad Martin was coming in to save Jessie is too little to late.Face it without Susan Lucci, and the other stars, and a decent writing staff,this show will… Read more »

Thank you for your thoughts, i will ignore the “drug”remark, The writing staff was replaced if you recall within weeks of the debut of AMC, the head writer, and Agnes Nixon is still getting a preview of all story line , story outlines. whether this is because Prospect Park, executives are worried, or need expertise, and Agnes Nixon is the best writer in the world, after all she created AMC, ONE Life….etc. need I say more. if the shows are canceled it will be for other reasons, pending litigation, sponsors pulling out not wanting to be associated with the step… Read more »

I think we have to also take into account that Oprah’s OWN channel is also not ABC-TV – many people do not get OWN as part of their cable package and I am one of those people – I already pay for Hulu Plus so that I can watch AMC through my TV (silly in a way I guess but it makes me feel like I’m watching my old show) but I agree with you, Charles, the on-line inception of AMC really needs work. Even with Debbi Morgan acting up a storm and the others doing their very best, the… Read more »

I watched both on HULU+ and watch both on OWN, but I am only watching AMC to support the overall effort. OLTL is my show. I wonder if any of the AMC fans are watching OLTL in reciprocation?

Tony Polar
Guest

Well I am a long time (LOOOONG time) fan of AMC and I’ve been watching OLTL as well even though I hadn’t watched it on ABC-TV on a regular basis in years, and that was because since I work so many hours during the Day it’s hard to keep up with two soaps but since the shows went on-line and were trimmed down, I figured I could easily keep up with both shows. So, it’s a fair and honest statement for me to say I have watched BOTH shows for their Online inceptions. HOWEVER I will say that I have… Read more »

I really, really don’t get the complaints about the writing. I felt that in almost every storyline they penned on current events, social trends, and more realistic situations. I found them compelling.
Broadcast soaps are still telling retreads on variations of Who’ s the DNA. That kind of improbable storytelling and fallback plots is my idea of poor writing.

I have to say that I agree with some of the comments here about how this version of AMC has let me down by not having Erica, Tad and Kendall on at all, in Erica’s case, and with quick cameos, in Tad’s and Kendall’s case. I’ve needed to see more of my favorites than I have. I also haven’t liked the writing for some of the storylines. I agree with some critics who say that this version is much better than what was on ABC for the past few years but I’ve had problems with some of the younger actors’… Read more »

Also, who decided that there is ANY chemistry whatsoever between Petey and Celia? I can at least appreciate Kendall’s health problems and given her past it would at least be somewhat believable. But of course they left us high and dry on that one as well. None of the characters really interact with each other, it’s all so disconnected – it’s like, a quick scene here, a quick scene there, which is usually limited to Jane’s Coffee Shop or Chandler Mansion. Dr David Hayward is seen needling JR Chandler and then in the next scene he is at the Hospital,… Read more »

I liked the online version better than ABC’s. I’m not saying RC wasn’t good but he was more storyline driven than character driven. Our favorite couples would be happy for only 1 week if we were lucky. He definitely messed our characters up on GH and couldn’t care less what we thought. As for AMC performing better I believe after reading several website comments that OLTL fans helped AMC more then they help our show. Remember OLTL fans made sure nothing but a soap would succeed@2pm the same can’t be said for 1pm. According to Nelson Branco’s source both shows… Read more »

I started watching ONE LIFE TO LIVE around 1992, albeit casually. I REALLY got into ONE LIFE TO LIVE around the time when Ron Carlivati became the head writer, and I enjoyed it immensely up until the end. I wish the initial plans for the internet would have worked out, because RC/FV would’ve been the show runners, and more of our favorite actors would have been involved. This incarnation of the show just didn’t do anything for me, so I didn’t stay tuned in. Sorry guys. 🙁 I am enjoying GH for the most part, so maybe I’m more of… Read more »

I watch One Life to Live by any and all means available to me. I watched them on HULU first, now I watch them on OWN. I also watch ABC reruns of OLTL on SoapNet. I thank God for SoapNet every day, they have never let me down. Unlike Prospect Park! I believe many fans are not watching as much OLTL now because of PP’s poor decision to put OLTL on “hold”. Fans don’t want to get hooked again only to have it SNATCHED away yet again. I have a message for PP – To Prospect Park: Please resume production… Read more »

I watched OLTL on HULU and DVR on OWN to watch later. I’m enjoying the reruns as I’m finding the experience on TV is different from watching on my computer or tablet. I’m loving OLTL and am going to miss it (again). I hope PP puts it back into production soon. I started watching AMC, but just can’t get into it. I hope for AMC’s fans sake PP keeps it going. OLTL has a really talented cast. They have 45 years of characters and stories to draw from. I wish PP would focus on what they DO have instead of… Read more »

We should not be pitting AMC versus OLTL. In the past overall AMC has had better ratings which are even better considering they had no lead in show to help them AND they were up against far tougher competition than OLTL. Yes, OLTL has Erika Slezak and she has six Emmy’s versus AMC who had Susan Lucci who only has one Emmy. However no matter how great Slezak is she cannot and could not garner the media attention or interest of Susan Lucci. Even today AMC without Susan Lucci gets attention because she was on AMC. AMC really needs Erica… Read more »

It’s difficult to believe AMC has a higher number of viewers than OLTL. OLTL has more cast members from the television version than AMC and AMC seems to pander more to the young crowd than OLTL. Like any show on television the first episodes are the building shows and sometimes aren’t smoothed out but in my opinion OLTL carried on from the final television episodes in a smooth way. Since there are so many new characters on AMC it is difficult to keep up with the storylines. The acting is good but it’s like I’m watching an entirely new show.… Read more »

I plan to watch OLTL on Hulu because fans say it got better. I agree that they were hard to watch in the beginning but AMC got much better and Tad is coming back. Hopefully, next season will include more of the original cast. I have a hard time watching AJ, Miranda, and Jane but when David hits the screen…it is all good. You might want to try again. I am ready for them to age Miranda and AJ another 10 years!

Why is it that the faithful viewers always get screwed!!Watching amc & oltl was a pleasure until you stopped production. Why was it stopped and will you bring it back??It is not fair to all the people who have been so unbeleivably true blue to not have what they longed for. Is it the bottom line at all times, or can you do the right thing once in awhile.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.

Share your thoughts and condolences on the passing of Chadwick Boseman via the comment section below.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
