After many were of the belief that the little-soap-opera-that-could, One Life to Live would finally be in at number two in the ratings, it has finally achieved it.  The cancelled ABC soap is now in second place.  But while OLTL ended up in second, it, and all the other daytime soap operas, lost viewers for the ratings week of September 12-16th.

The CBS soaps were hit the hardest.  The Young and the Restless still in the number one show lost -382,000 viewers for the ratings period,  and The Bold and the Beautiful which has been in the number two slot, slipped ever so slightly to third, which gave OLTL the runner-up position this week. B&B also lost – 349,000.  All My Children also lost over 200,000 viewers that week.

Hopefully every show will bounce back in short order!  To view the entire ratings via Soap Opera Network And c’mon fans, we need to support these shows and watch them for the genre to stand a chance on network television!

All My Children ended today…I don’t think anyone liked the ending. Is it true they are going to be online? will they be the same?/

With Y&R’s downward spiral, that could happen. The last few years, ONE LIFE TO LIVE has been the best soap, so I’m happy it is finally getting the respect it deserves, at least in the ratings. As far as Y&R is concerned, Mr. Fairman, is there any way you can do an investigation and let us know what is going on over there? It seems to me that the decline since MAB took over has elements of deliberate destruction. There are so many of us who grew up with this soap, and we’ve always gotten excellence, at least until LML… Read more »

of course ratings dropped. It was likely the first full week of school for much of the country. Young people are still watching, they are just not being counted by Neilsen. College kids watch on their computers, or Hulu, or You-tube.

We devoted OLTL fans knew they would hit number 2 in the ratings. Keep up the great storytelling and unbelievable performances. It will be great for the cast to go out on top. I look forward to seeing former characters returning in the next few months. And I will be there when they make that move to the internet on January 16th. I hope a cable network is still in the works for the future as well. Bravo OLTL

It would be a horrid shame for the amazing show of Y&R to lose to this…. “show.” MAB messed up big time by throwing out Maura West and taking her time getting MTS back. I have faith Y&R won’t lose their spot to this series.

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
