The ratings are out for the week of August 5th -August 9th for All My Children and One Life to Live’s continuing summer fling on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN television cable network!

This was the first week of the OWN programming scheduling change for AMC and OLTL, that had AMC stay in its 1PM slot and moved OLTL up to a 1:30 slot immediately following AMC.   So now viewers can get a much cleaner picture of the ratings and total viewers since there are no more repeat episodes sandwiched in front of, or after the new episode of the day.

When looking at the breakdown by day, All My Children scored an impressive Tuesday and Wednesday, while both shows continue to be strong in their numbers in comparison with the previous ratings week.   Check out the numbers courtesy of TV Media Insights below!

All My Children

Mon Aug 5 1:00PM 0.1 HH, 142,000 total viewers
Tue Aug 6 1:00PM 0.2 HH, 216,000 total viewers
Wed Aug 7 1:00PM 0.2 HH, 276,000 total viewers

I havent watched OLTL since early July but glad these shows are doing well…people will still watch soaps on the network which is proof the genre isnt dead…i like soaps on network better but also like watching online too, and on demand, especially if i missed something…glad we have a choice how to watch which serves our individual needs.

Is this good or bad? Is OWN going to keep the shows on regularly ? Hope so!

OLTL is must-watch TV for me. OWN’s new schedule for it and AMC is a good idea, IMO, but it’s a shame they can’t repeat the same day’s episodes later that night or over-night. These series need all the exposure they can get.

Michael, can we get an analysis of these ratings? Have the shows lived up to expectations? What are the ratings like on iTunes & Hulu? It would be nice to know what the ratings mean.

Oprah’s network FINALLY made a profit this year thanks to Tyler Perry, AMC and OLTL…

I haven’t watched OLTL in a while but AMC is amazing! I’m falling in love with my favorite soap all over again. Shout out to Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams, Vincent Irizarry and the rest of the cast and crew! I’m at all not surprised AMC’s doing so well in the ratings. Hope AMC keeps up the good storytelling and it continues to well in the ratings.

I still do not see these numbers on OWN being a mandate for more. I hope I am wrong. I have watched OLTL through episode 53. I have watched OLTL on and off since 1977 or 1978 when I was a little girl. The regime under Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati was superb. Sadly, PP’s production of AMC and OLTL appear to be typical operations run by Jeff K. . It appears to me that the blessings came from Richard Frank, former Disney executive and NATAS leader. He has an interesting interview on the Emmy Foundations Oral History archive recorded… Read more »

What you do not seem to be skipping;
The soaps are .. reruns…

Most all fans have seen the soaps that are running on OWN, and do not go back for seconds..
To have numbers that high for reruns, is excellent.. (especially from daytime viewers)

Hopefully some of those numbers are ”new” viewers..

It is very good to be having those high numbers for reruns ..

Torrey
Guest

Exactly! What people are forgetting is that these aren’t first-run episodes…these are reruns that the soap fans have already seen. If these were new episodes, I’m sure the numbers would be much higher.

su0000

Yes! for reruns being rerun for daytime viewing, the numbers are really good!!
Not many do not like reruns nor daytime viewing..

IF, OWN ran the current soaps (not the reruns) in an evening time slot, they would get tons of new viewers..

Ron, is that you? You’re probably still mad that your shirtless Ford boys stories were dropped, and that your ridiculous version of clowny Todd was corrected. PP is getting everything right and it’s only getting better this fall. More good new on the way for OLTL.
Ratings win all over the place. Not so much for GH.

It’s good to see that both show’s are doing exceptionally well on both “OWN” & their online homes via Hulu & iTunes. The ratings if I’m understanding them correctly is proof that the new versions of both AMC & OLTL are indeed getting their groove back. Did someone call Stella? I hope that @Susan Lucci, makes a pit stop in Pine Valley to check on her daughters & grand daughter. Though, I’m not sure how likely that will be considering she’s juggling two shows at once. However, like it or not “Pine Valley” is her home and that is where… Read more »

I agree…wish that Susan Lucci was back on AMC, but you’re right I think it seems unlikely right now. I really don’t want her to just “pop in” for a cameo visit like Kendall did, what does that do for us? AMC needs help, it’s all right but it is lacking the “heart” of the ABC-TV inception. I hate to say that since I like many others are still furious with ABC but to me it’s an honest fact. I miss familiar faces on AMC and some of the re-casting hasn’t thrilled me nor has the writing but I am… Read more »

I am a longtime OLTL fan who found it difficult to watch online have “caught up” on OWN. I can honestly say the AMC storylines are more compelling. I think the storylines for “season 2” need to be more dramatic. and surprising. Have John McBain come to town and get killed or something. Fast paced needs to also be SHOCKING to attract online viewers.

Oprah hasn’t had such high ratings till now! Because of OLTL & AMC … Well if she had
put them on her own channel from the begining her station wouldn’t have had low ratings & Oprah wouldn’t had to let go the employees on her channel.

I love OLTL and I do watch the reruns on OWN when I am off from work every other Friday. I do wish Oprah would repeat the shows at night because I love OLTL, since like AMC is doing good but I would say OLTL does not begin to be must see tv/internet until episode 40, it goes back to its basic soapy formula and has a lot of surprise twist.

I hope Oprah does choose to show these shows past 40 episodes because after episode 40 of OLTL I think the shows have been excellent.

Brett

Why oh why does Oprah have these shows airing at the same time as soaps on major networks, they should air immediately after GH!

su0000
Guest

Actually;
Both the soaps should air during the evening, on OWN, when people are home to watch them..
Daytime viewing is terrible, not many people are home in this 21st century to watch during the daytime.
I do not believe any soap should be daytime viewing, they all should be evening, perhaps on cable..

Oprah needs to renew these soaps for the fall season too.

Maybe it will negate her negative press due to the “Switzerland” incident with the purse.

I used to watch both AMC and OLTL religously until they went of air. When they came back I started streaming from my computer. I lost interest in AMC because so many characters were replaced or didn’t return which made it less interesting for me. I’m still giving OLTL a chance and now watching on the OWN network. I hope my show has found a new home with OWN.

Derek

Carol, please give AMC another chance. It is so good right now. Yes there are new faces but, you will grow to care about them too. Everyone was new at one point.

I do agreethatthe writing and storylines on AMC have been much more intersting BUT I also think OLTL is about to hit its stride with the Ron Raines storyline.

I love both shows but I have to say OLTL is my favorite. I watch all new episodes of OLTL but AMC seems to be made up mostly of young kids which some of them is okay but I have watched AMC since the first and I am more interested in the characters I was invested in when it was on ABC. I know it is impossible to get every character back because the actors have gotten other jobs but I would prefer to have more storylines about original cast members and more of them. I would love it, love… Read more »

If you don’t like the new AMC fine but to suggest they increase airtime for OLTL but not for AMC is a bit much. There are a lot of people who enjoy the new AMC as evidenced by the ratings. AMC is even doing better than OLTL. Personally I prefer AMC to OLTL but I would never suggest that they not increase airtime for OLTL because I respect the fact that OLTL has many fans that enjoy watching it.

I really didn’t expect to watch the AMC/OLTL reruns on OWN as I pay for them on iTunes and watch them downloaded on my iPad. But to my surprise, I am loving watching them again on my big-screen TV! Today I was home from work during the day and even got to watch AMC at 1 p.m. like in the old days. I have to tell you that when I’m home during the day I make a point of not turning the TV on during that time slot, just out of sorrow for the loss of my soaps–until today! A… Read more »

I’ve been watching both All My Children and One Life to Live since I was 15 years-old – some 30 something years ago. Needless to say, I was very disappointed when both shows were cancelled. Now, I am very happy to see them return – even with fresh new faces. Life goes on, even soap characters grow up. I am very pleased.

Very pleased that they have been picked up by OWN, but I have always only allowed myself to get addicted to one show and that is All My Children. I don’t watch the other because I limit myself. I feel certain that it is an excellent show, but once a person gets hooked on a show it is hard to give it up.

Oh No!! Am I wrong? I have been doing some checking … it looks like All My Children and One Life To Live will no longer be on OWN after Thursday, Sept 19th. I believe that is the LAST DAY! OWN stated that both soaps would be on a ten week limited run beginning on Mon, July 15. So if you count ten weeks … it ends on Thurs Sept 19. I AM DEVASTATED! I guess the ratings must have been very low because it looks like OWN will no longer air AMC and OLTL as of Mon, Sept. 23.… Read more »

What happened to AMC? Is it true that the series ended in September? No warning or anything. I am very disappointed. After 43 episodes, to leave its fans hanging was unforgiveable. Can fans be informed ? What about this ten week run? I am so sad about the situation? what fans do, if the show is closing after 10 weeks?

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.

Share your thoughts and condolences on the passing of Chadwick Boseman via the comment section below.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
