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!

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.

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.
