Oprah has spoken! This time in an excited fashion ushering in All My Children and One Life to Live’s landing successfully on their new television home, Oprah’s OWN beginning on Monday July 15th for OWN’s Summer Fling with the soaps!

In the first video where Oprah is promoting her network’s decision to air the iconic returns of All My Children and One Life to Live, she exclaims, “I heard you! You posted, you tweeted, you Facebook’d, and I listened … and now they’re here! Pine Valley, Llanview, Victoria Lord, Adam Chandler, Angie and Jesse…  all of your favorites.  We’re having a summer fling with the soaps!”

As far as the programming schedule on OWN for All My Children and One Life to Live, even though both soaps will launch on Monday July 15th to kick things off the first day, OWN has scheduled back-to-back to-back half-hour episodes starting with the first three episodes of TOLN’s All My Children which will air from 12:00-1:30 PM ET/PT, with the third episode repeating at 1:30 PM ET/PT.   One Life to Live will air the first three episodes from TOLN from 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, with the third episode repeating at 3:30 PM ET/PT.

Then, starting on Tuesday July 16th, All My Children and One Life to Live will begin it’s regularly scheduled time slot at 1:00PMET/PT for AMC, and  OLTL at 3:00 PM ET/PT.  The soaps will air Mondays through Thursdays for 10 weeks equally the first 40 episodes.

Now, watch the promo featuring Oprah after the jump! Certainly a far cry from the video a few years ago AMC and OLTL fans! But, are you excited that the shows are coming to cable? Do you like Oprah’s Summer Fling with the soaps promo? Let us know!

Good for her. That’s why she’s Oprah. She does listen and she isn’t afraid to do what is best, even when she has to own up to making a mistake. However, it isn’t exactly true that she said there was no money to be made from soaps. She said it, but the context is important because it was before there was a PP to produce them. She said it when we were asking her to produce them. I think she probably didn’t see how she could afford to do that and now that PP is covering those costs, OWN can… Read more »

well said. LOL. like the inference.

the bottom line, for me; that soap actors’ have other avenues to venture… to find employment. and we’re talking AMC and OLTL… etc… so… I applaud Oprah for furthering what was “RIP”… MIA… and is now a part of our lives, again.

Oprah is cyclical… she knows that.

Oprah Winfrey… Fans have “long” memories… Thanking You for the duration of what helped you.

You are correct, context is important. She DID say there was not one more dime to be made from soaps and that there was no more audience for them. No problem understanding that statement. For me, it was her arrogant, condescending attitude toward the very people who made her a success that ticked me off most. And I don’t know what videos you’ve seen – but NOprah has not owned up to any mistake. She is doing this for her network. That being said – I am glad these shows will have a chance on a cable channel though, even… Read more »

Bottom line is;
Oprah is a big benefit to PP and our soaps, that need new and more and viewers and through her network it will help keep our soaps going and prospering ..
This is way more beneficial to Us and PP than it is for Oprah ..

I an glad she now able to help..

You know what, I’m actually sick of seeing these types of comments. Not just you kcphilly, but others like you. How easy do you think it is for Oprah to secure syndication rights from both ABC and Prospect Park? Do you people think she can just snap her fingers and get what she wants? What about the cost factor in all of this? Do you know how much Brian Frons lied about the state of AMC/OLTL, and he did so for years? She has repeatedly said that soaps were expensive. Just because she’s a millionaire doesn’t mean she should just… Read more »

My problem was not with her being unable to pick the shows up, it was the rude way in which she did it. Kind of like your reply right now. All she had to do was say that while she was sad the shows were ending, it was not something she could take on at the time. But she didn’t do that, she basically put down the shows and said they weren’t worth anything. THAT was the slap in the face to the fans. I think the fans are well aware of the business side of the situation, we do… Read more »

I totally agree. It is a big difference between saving the shows and airing them; I don’t think people realize that. She wasn’t in a position to save the shows, and now she is in a position that she can help. I will watch the shows on both avenues. I support PP and whoever makes the effort to keep them on regardless of the person or network. This is business, not personal.

JustSayin’….it was NEVER about the fact that she wouldn’t (or couldn’t – whatever) help try and save/revive the soaps. It was her attitude toward the daytime fans and the genre. She was condescending and insulting and forgot these were the same people who made her successful. And still no apology or acknowledgment….
(soaps won’t be canceled once and for all either….)

Disdain? That’s pretty harsh. Did you have a bad experience with the woman on a personal level? Lol. We are all mature and informed enough to realize that the business of soaps is the same as any other facet of show business. The dollar is the bottom line. Unfortunately, business supersedes our (the fans) love of the soap genre. Business is and will always be business. Oprah’s OWN is no different than TVGN airing Y&R. I’m not sure about the rest of you but I’m pleased to see the support coming in from OWN, TVGN, online outlets etc. It only… Read more »

I don’t like Oprah for many reasons, her attitude and statement about the soaps two years ago was just pushed it over the edge. I said I would be watching them on OWN, I’m glad for the shows that they will be on tv. Soap fans that get OWN will be “moving on” and supporting the shows, but doesn’t mean we can’t acknowledge the fact that she’s eating crow now. She said there was no money to be made from soaps, basically that their time was over. Now her network is in more trouble than ever and she now is… Read more »

Yeah! She finally heard us two years later… All the things she said about people work and are not home to watch the soaps! When I was working I would record them. So that statement was not true. And a thing of the past.. This is only a temporary thing just for the summer and they are episodes we have already seen. I would rather see new episodes than ones I have already seen. I hope the soaps get a lot of publicity by showing these repeated episodes and get more and new viewers for both soaps..

If Oprah couldn’t have saved the soaps.. then it’s not in her power, case closed. Oprah went OUT OF HER WAY to release a tape telling the soap fans that the genre was DEAD!!! Oprah said if there was another dollar to be made from the soaps, they’d still be on the air. Oprah said that soaps simply didn’t have a fan base anymore and that there time had come. She didn’t have to say all that, no reply would have been just fine.. telling us the soaps were dead and to stop bothering her was pompous and arrogant.. and… Read more »

Absolutely correct. I will watch them on OWN too just to get the ratings for the soaps, but wish it was on another network, and not hers. She was very condescending. And, I am one of the many who started watching her years ago only because it was on the same channel after my soaps. She has no gratitude to the fans that helped make her show so famous.

And if she doesn’t apologize that is fine. We will watch the soaps on OWN because we love the soaps. I still won’t like NOprah. IF she ever does actually apologize, that may change my opinion of her. But I don’t think she really cares either way, and I will not thank her.

Cool they’re starting with a marathon…but then that creates a snag – if they air the first three episodes of each show in a marathon on Day One, then at some point during that ten week run, they’ll need to show a repeated episode on two of those days. Unless they actually end up airing the first 42 episodes rather than the first 40 during the Summer Fling.

CTwildheart
Guest
CTwildheart

I am very happy to have this limited showing of these shows on ANY cable channel! This will help out fans who can’t watch online and will hopefully give us some new fans. The shows are very good and just need more publicity.
And proving NOprah’s words of two years ago wrong will be sweet as well – even if she is going to profit.

Eye roll, cue music and wind, I look into the camera…breath and click the remote to OWN.

Because I’d rather have these shows on my DVR to watch in bed, than on a laptop. Bottom line, I look at a computer all day…..I don’t want to use one to watch TV at night.

Oprah did this out of the GOODNESS of heart, instead of trying to save her failing network!

Oprah told us the soaps time had come, and they had no audience and there was no money to be made, so it wasn’t worth her time.. now that they’re profitable here she comes trying to benefit off other hardwork!

I have watched OLTL & AMC faithfully since their return on line thanks to Prospect Park. I enjoy both soaps as much as ever. I know what Oprah said about not taking the shows to her network two years ago but I am not holding any ill wills. I am glad she is bringing the first 40 episodes to OWN. She now wants a piece of the action because they are doing well online. If we support this Oprah may start airing them on a regular basis. I have faith.

Exactly, where’s the apology or her saying she’s wrong?

Oprah has actually convinced people she’s doing them a favor!

Are people so naive that they believe OWN was the ONLY channel that wanted the soaps? I’m sure there was a bit of a bidding war: Lifetime, Oxygen, OWN, TVGN and a few others. OWN had to really wanted them to get them, Oprah being the ‘smart businesswoman’ likely overpaid.. but either way it made national headlines and gives PP/TOLN great publicity.

I’ll watch, but Oprah is so full of sh*t it isn’t even funny.

Good grief. Why should Oprah apologize for making a business decision? So what if she was wrong? So was Brian Frons. So was CBS. So was ABC. They were all wrong about the soap industry. Now you want an apology?

She made a business decision and thought that soaps were dead. Clearly she was wrong, but it was still her decision to make. So if she wants to change her mind, so be it.

Hold grudges all you want. At least she’s broadcasting the soaps again.

You still don’t get it. WE do get it. It was a business decision, a financial decision. She could have just stated it that simply. BUT she went out of her way to tell us that there weren’t enough of ‘us’ to make it worth her while in a manner that was rude and condescending. THAT is what we would like an apology for.

I have to agree with both sides of this debate. OWN picking up AMC and OLTL is a good thing, and I appreciate that it’s contributing to their ongoing survival. Oprah didn’t have to do it (though I’ll bet another network would have). But I feel compelled to point out that she wouldn’t be, if it weren’t profitable for OWN to do so (which supports the argument that some other network would if OWN hadn’t). And I find her advertisement disingenuous at best. This isn’t about her “listening” to anybody. She made a business decision then (when she said soaps… Read more »

Extremely well said, it almost IS INSULTING for her to say ” I heard you ” – and I’m like — whaaa–t?
You are right she should approach it in a different manner, one that reflects what actually is happening.
Something like “Oops guess I was wrong, same as when I ate that pork shoulder last night”….now that at least would be funny.

I’m glad that Oprah is going to air the repeats for the people that haven’t been able to see them online. As for Oprah, it’s too little, too late for me. After proclaiming for years that she was the biggest AMC fan her rude, condescending video to the fans 2 years ago was a slap in the face. I think she owes soap fans an apology before she rants about how she “heard” us because she really didn’t.

Maybe if she said “I was wrong believing there was no more audience for soaps – I’ve heard you all this time and now I’m gonna do something about it.” or something anywhere near this – we wouldn’t still hold bad feelings for NOprah. But she didn’t. So we will support our shows on any and every network, cable outlet, online website – just like we supported our shows for two years when they weren’t being produced. But we still don’t like her.

Exactly-my biggest problem with this ISN’T that they’re being shown on OWN, it’s her “savior” attitude. I sincerely hope these shows find the audience they should find, but those of us that have been in the trenches since Black Thursday know her true attitude, and can smell BS when we hear it

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
