On-Air On-Soaps is very excited about all the plans in the works for you, the long time fans of One Life to Live, as it begins its countdown over the next few months of episodes to its network television conclusion on ABC.

The returns continue and they are quite intriguing! John Wesley Shipp who was murdered as father-from-hell, Eddie Ford by Matthew Buchanan is returning during the finale week! The Daytime Emmy Award winning actor announced it on his Facebook page, by teasing the following! “The ideas for this last week of OLTL on ABC truly approach brilliance; when I was told, roughly, what I would be asked to do, it was not what I had thought, and man was I psyched. I tripped on the idea for a week before I ever got the script lol. Kudos to Ron Calivati and his staff, to Exec Producer Frank Valentini whose praises I continue to sing (some show is going to grab him up if they’re not careful) and a technical crew that not only functions with the proficiency that comes from doing this alot of years, but every time you give, they give back, and you feel it.”

Then One Life fans will get some interesting revelations when Tonya Walker Davidson returns as Alex Olanov on Thursday November 17th!  Tonya originated the role of Alex in 1990 and played it until 1997.  She was last seen as Alex in March of this year.   “For years I have been asked to bring the notorious Alex Olanov back to One Life to Live, where she usually finds herself in the middle of a sinister plot,” said Ms. Davidson. “I relish the opportunity to bring Alex back to OLTL with surprises that even shocked me.”

So are you excited about the upcoming revelations with Alex? And Eddie’s mysterious return? Let us know!

Yes! Yes! YES! Very excited!! So glad that Tonja Walker will be back as Alex. I wonder what her surprises are? I really hope that Tonja will make the move with Prospect Park. I love John Wesley Shipp’s reaction to the script. Isn’t Frank Valentini going to be with Prospect for OLTL 2.0? I’m very curious about Eddie Ford’s return…hmmm….is he really dead?

YIPPEE!!!!!! JWS is returning to OLTL He should not have left. Matthew should have killed Prick the Porno Producer, instead of Our beloved Eddie. A friend of mine met JWS on Veterans’ Day, the day he taped his scenes.

I *heart* JWS. What was your friend’s exeprience meeting the man. I think he is a fine actor and must be a blessing on any production he does.

@ Iakovos: I am the person Patience DePhazio was referring to. I met him as he was leaving the ABC building. Let’s just say he is more like ‘Kelly Nelson’, the character he played on THE GUIDING LIGHT in the early ’80s. The sweetest guy on the planet. He was more happy to meet me as I was to meet him since we have been communicating of FACEBOOK for the last few years.

So glad that Alex is coming back, hope she stays until the network end (along with Tina, Cord and Gabrielle).
I wish OLTL could have brought more favorites back towards the end, Max included. I could have done without a LOT of characters that are on, especially since they aren’t going to Prospect Park so why not go ahead and write them off or show them less? Like Ford, Rama and Vimal’s little sister.

Totally agree. Alex is a true villianious of the 90’s. Seeing her on screen yesterday was hilarious. I hope PP offer her a deal, at least a recurring one if she’s really Cutter’s mother.

TODAY: B&B’s Sean Kanan Visits ‘The Talk’

Friday on CBS’ The Talk, Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharpe, The Bold and the Beautiful) is one of the afternoon series special guests, and will discuss and preview the continuation of the crossover story arc that finds Deacon in drama with Y&R and Genoa City’s Nikki Newman.

Next week, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) comes to B&B as she tries to get dirt on Diane (Susan Walters) and wastes no time in telling Deacon he has to help her with her revenge plot.  After all, Deacon helped frame Nikki to look like she murdered Diane many years ago.

Kanan weighed-in on Deacon’s motives in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, sharing: “He actually wants to help Nikki.  Deep down, I think Deacon is more of a good person than a bad person.  He’s a guy who wants to do the right thing be he’s got issues.”

Tune in today for The Talk at 2pm ET / 1pm PT on CBS and Paramount Plus as Kanan reveals more of what’s to come with the show co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, Sheryl Underwood and Natalie Morales.

In addition, Morales may have a thing or two to add to Kanan’s visit, since she has been making appearances on Y&R playing ace reporter, Talia Morgan, who has been investigating Diane Jenkins.

Looking forward to seeing Sean on ‘The Talk’? Will you be watching next week for the crossover to continue with Sean and Melody Thomas Scott in scenes on B&B? Comment below.

Elizabeth Gillies First Post-‘Dynasty’ Role Revealed; GH Alum Bryan Craig Also In Cast

Now that the CW’s Dynasty has come to its conclusion after five seasons, many have wondered what series star Elizabeth Gillies (ex-Fallon) will be seen in next.  Part of the answer was revealed today in casting news via Deadline.

Gillies will star and is the co-executive producer of a new Tubi film called Spread.  In it, Liz will take on the role of  ambitious and aspiring journalist, who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king played by Harvey Keitel.  The character must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed.

Spread is written by Buffy Charlet, who is another of the films Co-EP’s, and is inspired by Charlet’s real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose in the ranks to become an editor.

The film also stars two-time Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig (ex-General Hospital, Good Trouble).

Look for Spread to drop on Tubi in 2023.

So, intrigued to see Liz and Bryan in Tubi’s new film, ‘Spread’? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.
