Courtesy/OWN

Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network announced its Summer Fling with the Soaps a few weeks ago and thus All My Children and One Life to Live found a television home for the first time after being axed by ABC a few years back!  On OWN, the first 40 episodes of the revival of both series from TOLN, starting with episode #1, are being broadcast.

So just how did the first week of episodes do  on OWN? Well, we have published the numbers below released by TV Media Insights for the week of July 15th -19th.

Check them out and let us know what you feel about the numbers? Do you think the shows are performing well? Under performing in the cable landscape afternoon in which it is in? Or, do you think it would help if more fans of both shows tuned in to watch episodes they may have seen before? Goal of course is: for OWN to want to carry more new episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live in the future, after this ten week exclusive TV deal!

Other than the initial promotion when the shows were first announced, neither OWN nor Oprah have done ANY advertising of the shows. Not on Facebook or Twitter. So anyone who finds out that the two shows are on OWN are finding out from other soap fans and soap sites or by pure luck. What a shame that neither OWN nor Oprah could be bothered to promote them once they got them!!!

I don’t claim to totally understand ratings, but I think (hope) the ratings are respectable for what they are. A lot, if not most, fans of AMC and OLTL have already watched these shows on Hulu or another device; thus they are repeats to many. I think there would be a significant jump in the ratings if they had been first-run shows. All in all, they did OWN a good bump up.

I have been watching OWN, but have been a loyal OLTL fan on Hulu+ since April 29th. These numbers only track Nielsen viewers, correct?

GH has on average a little over 2,000,000 viewers per day. Keep in mind this is on cable and most fans have already watched the first run of these episodes on the net.

When OL was on ABC it pulled the most views, which I believe were 2.1 – 2.3 million. It was better than GH at the time of cancellation!

I`m with you on this one Karen….I was so excited when FX Canada was carrying the shows – then the ball dropped when that was cancelled because they changed the viewing of AMC and OLTL . I wasn`t about to pay a hundred dollars to iTunes Canada for 50 shows either. Then came the news that Oprah was going to run the first 40 episodes of each show on her network…..but not Canada. As a fan I feel ripped off and repeatedly smacked in the face. At least I can still see Roger Howarth on GH albeit not as Todd.… Read more »

As I understand it one of the problem the IATSE union had was that it was airing on FX Canada. The claimed that violated the contract the union had with them. If that is true then that would be the reason why it is not in Canada. I don’t know when they will be able to broadcast internationally.

I think it is wonderful that it is on OWN television, and more fans have acess to the show. I am watching it on the computer, only because I already saw the other episodes, and don’ t care for repeats nor do I want to miss the new ones. But happy for others, and will watch where ever I have to to get my “fix” of OLTL and AMC 🙂

Disappointed with the numbers. I do understand that you have to be signed up with Nielsen ratings for the numbers to count. I am NOT and surely there are a lot like me. I’ve already watched them on hulu, but watching them again. Just another nail in ABC’s coffin for me, they should of never canceled them!!!

If you go by only the new episodes then it’s not so bad. 110K for AMC/109K for OLTL. But once you start factoring in the other episodes totals go down to 85K for AMC & 73K for OLTL. Any way you slice it, OLTL is losing viewers in the timeslot for the network. AMC is doing better or the same as the previous week. I guess the question would be how many new viewers did the shows attract to the network? If by airing the shows OWN could increase their reach, that would be an added value to to the… Read more »

No one is saying that OLTL is a bad show. I was just going by the numbers published. When you take the average, it is less than what they reported for the week before. I don’t have access to anything other than what was in the article, and then I did the math.

I love OLTL. Liked on ABC & like it online. Like it on OWN.

I think the rating for both shows need some improvement. However, I don’t think these ratings include the people who DVR it and watch later. I am curious to see how they would do with a show that people haven’t already seen.

I think that many people just don’t receive OPRAH’s network – I already pay for HULU Plus just to watch AMC and OLTL – both of which by the way are not up to par to what they were on abc-tv.
ABC-TV should be ashamed at what they did to these two iconic soaps.
If there is any justice abc should re-insert the shows into their afternoon schedule.

boes
Guest

One thing is immediately clear. When it’s a “new ” episode, the numbers go up – for both shows.
An older acquaintance of mine is watching on OWN and got confused by the repeat episodes each week. Now she watches, but only the new ones. I don’ think there are very many people out there who have either the interest or the time to watch very many repeat episodes – either on OWN or online.

rebecca2

I think A) a lot of people need to pay to get her station and B) many won’t watch her station because of her original attitude.

Maybe if she actuallly apologized for her original condescending refusal…..instead of acting like she’s come to some great realization and is “listening” to the fans like she’s doing them a favor…more people would tune in and it would be a win/win. Although of course the apology would be insincere but at least make ti instead of acdting like you’re “hearing” the fans.

Considering the soaps are reruns, it is doing very well..
Most people do not watch a rerun when they already know the outcome..

The biggest mistake;
Putting them back on daytime air times ..

PP should have dealt to air them during the evening 9pm`ish

People are not home nor have the time for daytime tv..

Only the Retired, Disabled, Mothers on assistant and Millionaires are home during the day to watch daytime tv..

((daytime watching is what is helping kill the soaps, people are not home))

PP doesn’t need to put them on at night. You can watch them on Hulu round the clock. There’s no set time.

Nancy

Thank you. That is exactly when I can watch, after 7:00 pm or between 4:30 to 5:00 am before I go to work. I had always picked the shows up on Soap Network in the evening.

Yes did not make sense to me. If they started them at 3pm even they would not be competing against another soap.

I don’t know if the ratings are just based on Nielsen boxes alone or if other factors are used as well. Most people have already watched these episodes AMC & OLTL online or on iTunes. While others watch Y&R, B&B and Days during the 12:30-2:00 time frame. Also there are those who still don’t know AMC & OLTL are on OWN. It would be nice if OWN advertised the soaps more and if Oprah had said yes back in 2011!!

Are these good or bad? Someone please clarify.
Either way, it was me who had to tell my mother in law about it being on OWN and she even gets Soap Opera Digest. My news came from Michael and FB.

My cable company does not offer OWN on HD so the video quality is not good on my HD TV. The audio isn’t great either. Plus, I’ve already seen all the episodes on Hulu so am less inclined to watch the repeats on OWN. If OWN was in HD and the shows were first runs, I would DVR them and watch at night when I get home from work. I’ll bet a lot of people have a similar situation.

I was happy the shows were being broadcast on OWN because I fell behind and I really didn’t like watching on my laptop. However, I do not understand how they are showing the past episodes. The first week I must have seen the same one episode 4 times! I don’t know if someone has goofed I just don’t understand why they keep repeating the same episodes over and over. Can anyone explain this to me? I would really appreciate it.

Angela the new episodes of AMC are on at 1PM EST and repeated at 1:30pm EST

The New episodes of OLTL are on at 3pm EST and repeated at 3:30pm EST.

All other episodes aired at other times are repeats

Well I have checked out the numbers and honestly I don’t know if they are good, bad or fair. I watch all new episodes on huluplus every Monday and have no desire to watch them again but I encourage everyone who has not seen them to support OWN. We all know that Oprah is continuously trying to get her numbers up and with the help of her good friend Tyler Perry, Iyana Vizant and so many more it is happening. So if we can put how we feel about Oprah behind us and move forward and support AMC & OLTL… Read more »

Folks, no matter how you slice and dice these numbers, they are just not good even for a cable channel like OWN, compared to what aired there before. That can’t bode too well for PP’s plan to find a regular TV home for the soaps after they are produced for the Internet. I realize that lack of advertising could be an issue, as well as confusion as to the order of episodes in each half hour, not to mention that some people may have seen the episodes already. But you really do have to wonder just how many mainstream people… Read more »

I agree with you Nick. These #s do not bode well. They overall lower than what was being shown before on OWN. Given this, I doublt OWN will want to keep running these shows or even have these “fling” specials. And I’m afraid other cable outlets will be looking at these # and figure that if Oprah can’t get them to work, why even bother. I’m just hoping that PP can still continue producing them online after the initial year since they were hoping to offset some of the production cost by airing these shows somewhere. Not good news at… Read more »

Well, prior to their cancellations, I believe that All My Kids pulled in just under two million viewers, with One Life close to the same. I watch One Life on Hulu Plus (on my ipad), but I’m glad to see the shows on OWN. There has been zero publicity for the OWN experiment. It is important to note that the above ratings only reflect the cable TV viewers, and are not inclusive of Hulu and Itunes. One Life rocks- I h ope they get more viewers on OWN, before Oprah pulls t he plug on the ‘summer fling’.

The only viewers that count are the ones watching via HuLu, pay or free, for the ”new” episodes.
the reruns on Oprah are just another way for people who have fallen off or behind to catch up..
Our soaps will remain on HuLu, until they die.. And the viewers on HuLu will be the numbers that, that we do not see and never will see, but they exist, are the ones that count/mater.
Reruns are not the numbers that hold any real importance for PP only for Oprah ..

This is for 10 weeks, only..
If that would change, it is still reruns..

I’m glad OWN is showing AMC because i just am not into watching it on my computer, but why is OWN showing the same episodes over and over? They repeated the same episode back-to-back – yawn. Why show 4 episodes per day if half are repeats of the ones you just showed? Still, I’m happy it’s on tv, but show more episodes without repeats.

It makes no difference how many watch the ”reruns” on OWN/Oprah.. It is only the new episodes on HuLu that count.. Reruns are a whole different thing.. They do Oprah good for her network OWN, and hopefully PP will get some new viewers from OWN airing reruns.. PP wants to air the reruns so the people who are behind can catch up and to hopefully get some new viewers, also. The mistake PP made was airing the soaps during the daytime when there way fewer viewers than they could get during the evening. The network soaps are going down because… Read more »

I’d consider these good numbers. If anyone was expecting network-comparable numbers, they’d be bound to be disappointed. But both PP & OWN would have more realistic expectations: — They’re on daytime cable — They’re on a station that’s in most places, a higher-tiered cable station, not part of the most basic cable package in most areas. — These had all been previously available online. There may be a few viewers here and there that had already seen them online tuning in to support the tv airings but these viewers largely represent those who hadn’t seen them online previously. So these… Read more »

These figures don’t look that great, but we really need to take a few things into account when analysing these figures: 1 A lot of people do not get OWN 2 The episodes are shown several times so we need to add up the ratings for each screening to get a true picture (I don’t know why they show them so many times) 3 Even before the first screening on OWN, they are in essence re-runs, as most fans have already watched them online. As loyal as some people want to be, not every one has time to watch episodes… Read more »

It is difficult to get a true reading on these statistics. All of these episodes are reruns. Each episode is shown on OWN more than once. The schedule would be somewhat confusing for the casual viewer of OLTL. First an OWN rerun is shown then a “new” episode, and then a rerun of that “new” episode (I think). On my Time Warner cable guide, the description of the OLTL did not match the episode when I watched it. One day it said that a “MORE” episode was being shown, and that was incorrect. I boycotted OWN after Oprah made those… Read more »

The “new” episodes seem to be doing decently. I don’t get why they are rerun so much unless she is trying to fill up airtime cheaply. In response to a comment I saw above about putting the shows on at night, I believe the person was talking about OWN putting them on at night, not the hulu because of course those are “anytime” viewing. That’s not PP’s issue though. That’s whoever does programming at OWN. I wish they would just do the “new” episodes during the week and then a marathon of each weeks episodes on the weekend like soapnet… Read more »

I am not really well versed in reading what the numbers mean but if these are considered mediocre, then there are factors involved. Number one, these are reruns so for that many to be watching reruns may not necessarily be a bad thing. Second, many folks who have watched them on Hulu are not watching so their numbers are not added in. Third, many cable providers may not carry OWN depending on where you live. So all of those things can play a part, but that is just my take. If fans are not watching due to being angry with… Read more »

If the soaps run new shows every day stop running them on Hulu while they are on OWN we might see a spike in viewership. Who will watch a show on tv that they have already seen on the internet? Also more promotion of the shows should bring in an audience of about 500,000 which would be nice and move on from there. People will watch both soaps even on OWN because of loyalty, they need to get rid of the reruns.
