The ratings are out for the week of May 9-13th and it looks like the return of Roger Howarth and great story including the antics of a crazed Marty Saybrooke continued to keep One Life to Live strong and firmly in the number three spot this week.  The soap also garnered an additional 85,000 viewers in total viewers.

On the converse, General Hospital which just fired it’s head writer, Bob Guza with Garin Wolf effective immediately, slid to the number five slot.  Days of our Lives landed at number four and gained the most viewers last week with 250,000.

The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful held steadfast the number one and two positions for CBS Daytime and in total soap viewers.

I hope Garin Wolfe has a chance to bring General Hospital back to it’s former glory. I’m really tired of mob related stories 24/7. Back in the ’80’s and 90’s General Hospital offered a nice balance between mob and hospital story lines with much more cast interaction between most if not all of the cast members. During Guza’s reign, the centerpiece became anything mob related. As a consequence, most of the well known characters were left High and dry or dumbed down to prop the mob stories. I really hope Mr. Wolfe is given the opportunity make GH his own… Read more »

WE need to get OLTL to number 2. It is on the upswing. BandB is on downswing. As great as the numbers look, we have to keep in mind that last year, OLTL was experiencing their lowest ratings. The massive gain from week to week and last year is an improvement, but it can be better. WE have to get the word out that OLTL is on fire, Roger is back, Viki has story, Marty is off her rocker, Jessica thinks she is a boy and hitting on girls, Hottie Cutter is married to a woman who thinks she is… Read more »

I LOVE General Hospital first and foremost. Although I watch OLTL on occasion, and even more so lately with its improved writing, it will never have the same place in my heart as GH. I want BOTH soaps to be saved!

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.
