I’m happy they made this video because reading people’s rants about this was annoying the hell out of me! And for those who keep saying put it back on tv stop your bitching and be grateful that these shows are back and have the potential to be a groundbreaking success for the soap genre.

I agree with you about the rants people were posting. Some just like drama which is why they watch soaps. Ten to one next week the very same drama queens will be crying about not being able to watch the shows online because sometimes you just can’t fix stupid! 🙂

There are many fans of these shows PP will loose because some do not get internet for different reasons. Whats so wrong with people in the U.S. wanting it on their fx too so they can also watch in the comfort of their homes. More viewers the more success for these shows! Wouldnt you want that?

Im on my own campaign to hopefully convince some cable channels to air repeats of the shows after their original internet airings…my old computer doesnt support hulu so i am one of those people who cant watch on the internet.

Whats wrong with some people wanting it on a cable channel…Candians who couldnt get these shows via the internet are getting it on a cable network which is a good thing. The more viewers the better! There are many people in the U.S. who want the same chance to watch these shows but dont have internet for whatever reason. Having it on a cable network here on our fx or maybe mtv could increase viewership and making both shows bigger success. I see nothing wrong if they were on cable too, especially when PP is new and needs all the help it can get with the reboots!

I have nothing against the shows being on cable
I hope they will be so successful online that cable networks would want them. My problem is fans being close- minded about some changes. They worked so hard to bring back the shows and some fans seem so ungrateful.

I completely agree! And jimh – it may be time to get a new computer. They are not that expensive and it’s worthwhile investment all the way around!

Instead of ABC focusing too much on M.E. K.A. and R.H., they should create a new 30 min. soap for weekdays at 12:30 pm call ‘All My Life To Live’ staring Susan Lucci as Victoria Banning owner of The Manner newspaper with Bobbie Eakes as her rival Dr. Doreen Kramerst, and Trevor St. John as Erik Kane, Vickis half brother who discovers that his identical twin brother Victor Banning J.R. played by Micheal E. Knight has been impersonating him for the last 8 years and married to his one true love Blaine Kramerst, Doreens niece, played by Gina Tognoni. It could be a big hit!

Dont you know a thing about name copywrite laws? ABC anyway is good only for talk and cooking shows, and lawsuits! By the way i want nothing to do with those reboots unless i get a new job at Prospect Park! lol

Now that’s a good video showing people who are not aware of Hulu or Hulu Plus… what to do! Well done! Can’t wait!

I hope anyone who wants to watch them has a way or chance too… would be nice if people reached out to people who need help getting to it whatever their constraints. PP would be great if they gave away some tablets to some more challenged individuals in a contest or promotion. Many libraries have computers and headsets that may allow people to watch their stories there on Hulu for those without internet access or computers… check it out!

Simple, informative, (non-offensive), and classy, just like the OLTL I’ve come to know.

Better yet..
why don’t the people who know nothing of the internet nor HuLu ask their son, daughters, grandchildren, neighbors , nephews, etc etc. to help.
They would be able to set them up and get them to HuLu is 3 minuets..

(when there is the will there is a way)

Once you guys purchase a Roku ($98) to stream the soaps from your PC to your TV, YOU. WILL. BE. HOOKED!

“The Roku Experience” reminds me of the first time I discovered and went on the internet all those years ago. It is amazing and beyond worth the price!

There are more than one Roku think there are 4 starting at 59.99..
Just go to… Roku.com ..
also through amazon you get a Roku for 50 plus too ..

This is true. The basic ones start around $59 or $69 but the reason I purchased the $98 (premiere one) was because I didn’t want to stream wirelessly but wanted to use my ethernet cable.

I heard that if you use an ethernet cable vs. going wireless, you get a better picture and guess what? THAT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE 100% Since hooking up about two months ago, I haven’t had one single problem with “buffering” or a bad picture or anything.

I still wish I could get my shows on TV only because I have a stupid laptop that doesn’t work very well period..& I can’t afford to get a new computer..it took me forever just to get on the hulu website..

If you do not have a good higher speed internet you will not be able to watch very well, it might be your internet speed, not your PC ..

Its the computer not the internet speed I have the highest AT&T provides..

I do not understand what the problem is – just go to any Electronic Store (or On line) and buy a RoKu box for about 59 bucks. Hook it up to your TV set, and you can stream Hulu Plus (it’s a whopping 7.99/mo) and that’s pretty much it. Once you start watching TV online in this manner, you won’t want to bother with broadcast TV where you are literally bombarded with tv commercials, which I can no longer tolerate. I am not a young person, and I can do it, and I have a 91 year old Aunt who sends me e mail and watches on-line streaming – why are people making it more complicated than it needs to be? Trust me, the Producers want to give the viewers every opportunity to be able to watch the shows. I could watch it on my Computer, I just choose to pay extra and have it streamed on my TV set, because I like to watch it propped up at night in my bedroom, that’s just my choice.

To be fair, there are people (college students, older people on fixed incomes, and people who live month to month with children and other expenses) for whom $59 and $7.99 ARE a lot of money. They aren’t just whining. They may or may not already have cable (remember these soaps were on free TV before) or already pay $100+ for cable and adding to that any more becomes burdensome, and it’s not like they can trade away cable (which may be bundled or that they and their other family members watch and enjoy already) for 2 shows. I work with people who have almost no money to spare–they decline going to lunch (even McDonalds) with the group because they’ve brought their lunch to save money or who worry every day about all their expenses, from children in college to a water heater that’s breaking down. As the senior manager, I make much more than they do and neither a Roku box nor Hulu+ is too much for me, but so many of the admins, interns, and customer service reps (our entry level and/or lowest paying jobs requiring only a high school diploma) don’t make enough–especially often with spouses who are laid off or similarly underemployed–to just spend $59 plus an additional $7.99 a month on 2 shows (yes, they will get more for it, but they don’t need or want that more–it’s to get two shows). I know some people are whining like the sky is falling and they really need to dial it down. But for those who genuinely don’t have the money, telling them (though I’m sure no one here meant it in a negative way) to get a new computer because “they really aren’t that expensive anymore” or joke that it’s only a “whopping 7.99” after you get the $59 hardware is (unintentionally) insensitive. Many people still don’t have high speed interent because they are rural or can’t afford it. There are a lot of people–many of whom, like the elderly living off of social security or the kindness of their grown children, who are long-term fans of AMC and OLTL–who honestly aren’t whining, but will have to do without because the shows aren’t on a free network anymore and/or on a service (cable) they ALREADY pay for.

I understand what you state here – my own mom is on a fixed income, trust me I can relate. But, when people complain “the shows should come back to abc-tv” or that “another station should pick up the shows” I am thinking, well it is what it is – and I see many a younger co-worker who breeze by me in the hallway so busy looking down at their phone and communicating that no one bothers to say hello to a live person standing next to them. These same people (some of them, not all) are whining about Hulu Plus costing extra. Keep in mind by having Hulu Plus they will also be getting Movies, TV shows, documentaries, etc., not just the new versions of AMC / OLTL – but, you responded to my comment in an intelligent and thoughtful manner so I have to respect you for that.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”
