Today on this very special celebration for the fans of One Life to Live, the series 45th anniversary,  creator Agnes Nixon sent a very special message to them and to everyone involved in the show!

Illustrating in her words how One Life to Live came in to being and how it was only originally given six months by ABC, Agnes tells the story of how this show, this most wonderful show filled with so much human drama,  came to be.

But what makes it all the more heartfelt is that on this week’s episode of MORE One Life to Live, the letter is read by Erika Slezak (Viki). And as fans know, Erika gives credit and her utmost respect and love to Agnes for her enduring career and for casting her, and creating the extraordinary world of Viki Lord!

Now after the jump, get ready to watch this very special anniversary message, but we suggest if you are a die-hard One Lifer and have fought for this show to come back from the dead, that you have a hankie nearby!

With love to all of you, who have stood by and watched One Life to Live for decades, and in it’s new incarnation with Prospect Park.  Llanview is forever in our hearts, and is still going strong!

I’m with everyone else. OLTL has always been my favorite for 45 wonderful years. I have watched AMC (when Tad and Dixie are together), GH, Y&R, and others sporadically but OLTL is my all time favorite. Thank you Agnes Nixon, PP and all the stars of the best soap ever.

I’ve loved this show for as long as I can remember, and I’m 32 now. My grandma watched, who passed it on to my mom, who then passed it on to my sister and I. These characters have been like a second family to me, and I’m truly grateful to Agnes for creating them, and to Prospect Park for bringing them back. Happy 45th anniversary One Life to Live, and here’s hoping for 45 more!!

AMC had Susan Lucci-GH had Luke and Laura…They
may have had the buzz,the notoriety and were familiar to the casual
and the occasional viewer
but One Life to Live was the daytime drama devotee’s
true favorite

I love this show! I have watched it since 1978 and even though there have been many many MANY times I’ve wanted to slap the crap out of many characters (and head writers who split up Bo and Nora but I digress) I have never given up. I have threatened but I could never quit my precious Llanview. The year in between I spent writing a couple fan fiction (Bo and Nora related of course!) and watching clips of all my favorites. But the reboot – and the pride in Ms. Nixon’s voice (via Ms. Slezak) have proven to me that this is more than just a show – it truly is a lifestyle – it’s my lifestyle and I am proud to say I am a OLTL junkie! Happy Anniversary One Life to Live – best wishes for another 45!

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
