Is this good compared to how OWN was previously doing during the daytime? I’m no expert on ratings, but these numbers look decent to me. One thing that strikes me as odd is how large the AMC numbers are at 1:30, which if I’m not mistaken is a repeat of the episode shown at 1:00.

Those numbers are excellent considering the episodes are re-runs ..

(all ready viewed by millions, so to get that many watching re-runs, is very good..

Are these ratings better, worse or the same compared to what used to air in that time slot…just curious! Is it enough to keep them showing repeats in the future? I think they should air them between noon and 1pm, and then again in the evening for those who cant watch in the daytime. I still think the shows would do better on a more popular cable child like TVGN or Lifetime!

I believe they should remain on OWN…i just felt theyd have more of an audience on a different cable network…is what i meant to say but now i feel OWN could help save the genre after all and just maybe more new soaps will be on the way.

To the naysayers, I say HAHA! This genre is here to stay!

oprah was one of those naysayers.

Oprah was NOT one of those naysayers. I am SICK of this revisionist history. Oprah said she did not believe it was possible to make a dime from soaps. Given the way in which they were being produced, she was right. That’s why they were cancelled by ABC. They were too expensive. THEN PP came up with a NEW BUSINESS MODEL. If you recall, it took them OVER A YEAR to figure out how to do it. Oprah was not against AURING soaps, she just didn’t have the $200,000+ an episode to PRODUCE them.

Let’s keep one foot inside reality and look at what Oprah ACTUALLY said and WHY she said it, instead of rewriting facts so we can feel like we’re smarter than Oprah. The MOMENT it appeared that the shows could be successful on TV, without her taking on production costs, SHE PUT THEM ON and left it to us to watch or not watch.

I am no Oprah fan, but this ridiculous gloating everyone is doing has nothing to do with what actually happened.


While it’s true Oprah said that the soaps couldnt make money the way they were being produced and she didn’t have the resources or know-how to try and revive them, fair enuff.

BUT Oprah also said ‘there is a time an season for everything’, I’m paraphrasing. Oprah went on to say how the soap fans were simply not there to support the genre anymore. Oprah pretty much said that the soaps time had come, when we’ve shown her and the rest of the world, the fans are very much here.

So I believe it was CORRECT to say Oprah was a naysayer, because she agreed the genre was dead, when in fact it was not.

Yep, AJ is correct.

Why does it matter.These soap need a network.Plain and simple.Remember Nielsen ratings is saying soaps are dying.ABC canelled them not Oprah.I still watch GH everyday on ABC just to back my soaps.Nothing but GH to on ABC.Not making them any money anyway except for the soap genre.So I turn on Oprah everyday just for the my soaps.I’m backing my soaps and praying they get a network for the cast to be able to make a good enough salary to stick around and they don’t fade off to a seasonal web series.This is what these actors have worked for.Dreams of them back on a network.Remember its for our soaps.Oprah will make one way or another.We may not.the actors will find better jobs sooner or later…

Whoo hoo we are doing OLTL & AMC fans. I am not sure what the numbers represent is good or bad but to me it looks darn good. I see OWN picking up our favorite soaps soon for good.

The numbers for both shows are trending upwards and both are on the cusp of 200k for the first run airings.

For those interested in how well each episode is doing with all the individual airings added together, here’s my “Adjusted Ratings Chart”. When the total airings of each episode are added together in this manner, these may not represent unique viewers as some of them may have watched a particular episode more than once but they still all represent viewers that were tuned in to the station during a broadcast and saw the ads shown during each one:

Episode 5 (repeat): 42,000 viewers (one airing) (Total: 201,000/four airings)
Episode 6 (repeat): 147,000 viewers (two airings) (Total: 347,000/four airings)
Episode 7: 536,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 8: 476,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 9: 303,000 viewers (four airings)
Episode 10: 306,000 viewers (three airings)

Episode 5 (repeat): 92,000 viewers (one airing) (Total: 363,000/four airings)
Episode 6 (repeat): 100,000 viewers (two airings) (Total: 294,000/four airings)
Episode 7: 332,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 8: 363,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 9: 406,000 viewers (four airings)
Episode 10: 273,000 viewers (three airings)

I watched them!

Excellent news! But I’m not sure why this comment: “with One Life to Live actually scoring higher on their first run episodes than AMC on the Wednesday and Thursdays airings!” is necessary. Both shows are doing well. Why turn it into a competition?

you are right, we need both shows to do well!

Yea!! hope our soaps keep doing good.. AMC.. OLTL.. Thank You ..OWN..

I watch on Hulu – usually from work during my lunch break on an iPad – a nice break mid-day from the office. One person at a time caught my little “me time” during lunch. Over the past few weeks, the break room table has been getting full watching. Soon we will need to use the conference room with a laptop on the big screen because too many people are crammed around the iPad. My Mom (79 yrs) is home all day and watching from OWN.

I paying HULU $7.99 for Super Monday once a month & rest of the week, it’s MORE. If this continues I am canceling HULU. I don’t watch any other of the shows except AMC & OLTL. Put in on cable like Own,so I could watch like I do with the other soaps like The Young & Restless, Bold & the Beautiful, General Hospital, & Days of My Life. I’m retired & am on a budget, I have cable & that is an expense without adding a few dollars here & there for only getting 2 episodes once a week First it 4 episodes & 1 MORE, then 2 episodes each, now it’s 1 on that so called Super Monday. I’m really upset.

It’s free on regular Hulu why are u paying any $?

On my Apple IPad , which my children bought me 2 years ago i’m unable to only get only clips not the full episodes. My computer does not work properly, so I guess I out of luck

You do not have to pay 7.99 a month to watch the soaps, HuLu is FREE to all !!

People pay 7.99 a month to be able to watch the soaps on their mobile phones and iPads etc..
You can watch the soaps FREE on you computer ..

Cancel your subscription, you do not need it, and watch for FREE on PC..

The reason is PP needs a network to be able to maake enough profit to make them bigger and better.Its really important.This what they have been working for to get better pay.We are the ones to gain and the cast and crew..

They are not down to just one episode on Mondays….is that what you mean? They call is Super Monday because they release two new episodes of each show and the More shows all at the same time on Mondays.

I see AMC is out weighing OLTL….not good BUT people ARE on vacation’s now.
I don’t think OWN is promoting well or is it?

PP and Own both need to run ads on soap channel for all the people who do not have internet that have no clue they are back on…

If you’re talking about Soapnet…that channel’s days are numbered…

I wish Soap Net would air the shows. For now, I watch them on Hulu. I don’t support egomaniacs, so I don’t watch own.

Soap net is going off the air any day now lol

I have been watching AMC and OLTL since they started on Hulu and I am fine to still watch this online. This has turned out to be a little down-time just for me. 🙂

Does anyone actually know, or has anyone actually met a Nielsen viewer?? I would be fascinated to actually meet one for real.

Funny you should say that .I used to say the same until I was just picked to be a Nielsen viewer in early July. It was before Oprah picked up the soaps but there was a space for comments so I added that I would be watching the soaps on Oprah.

One Life To Live get back to “more of the original feel” by episode 36, in my opionion.. and now it is on fire ! Will watch for another 40 years !

I watch on Hulu – but am enjoying the reruns on OWN. Hopeful they will be picked up full time for all those who can’t watch online yet…

I watch OLTL every Monday on Hulu Plus. I also think that the show is getting better every week. I loved the Clint and Viki scenes this week. Clint was so sad… I have been putting the “new” OLTL episode on OWN on my DVR every day and then watching it later. I have also been checking out OWN. I had been boycotting OWN previously, but I will watch it as long as OLTL is being shown on it.

I have watched OLTL since its first episode and will continue to watch it until the end !! Just love those guys at Prospect Park for believing in the fans and the soaps to keep these two going.

I would jump around and scream like a crazy person if they started airing episodes from the 80’s and 90’s. OMG that would be AWESOME. And I’m willing to bet good money that the ratings would sky rocket if they aired those. As for Oprah- eh, I can live without her. “/

Guess my original comment about Oprah and OWN have not been printed. Too bad, they were so true. She is horrid and I wouldn’t sign on to anything w/her name or anything about her. Put it on OWN and bye bye AMC – for me anyway. Never watched her on TV, rejoiced in her departure and will rejoice when she takes a final departure!

He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
