One Life to Live is showing everyone,  “Um. Hey, you cancelled the wrong soap, guys!”  The ABC soap continues to show growing numbers, despite that three network soaps for the week of August 8-12, 2011 took a loss in total viewers including One Life.

But here are the facts that illustrate that OLTL is on a continue upward swing that is nothing short of phenomenal!  The series is now tied for total households viewing the show with a 2.1 share, tying with The Bold and the Beautiful! This is the best showing by OLTL in total households, since December of 2008.  Add that to the fact that One Life to Live has gained +641,000 viewers since last year at this same time, and the show is garnering good steam when it migrates online via Prospect Park.

Of note: General Hospital, All My Children and Days of our Lives all gained viewers for the rating week of Aug 8-12, 2011.  View the entire ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network by clicking here.

sounds great when you say it like that, but aren’t you forgeting to tell your readers that the network only care about the 18-49 demographic/ rating #, so even though oltl is doing great in household #, the networks make their money off the 18-49 demo # and the ones doing great in those # are the y&r and gh, and yes oltl is climbing their too, but those are the # we should be paying more attention too.

ONE LIFE TO LIVE is “chewing” up the competition these days, pun intended. By the way, what a slap in the face to be bombarded with these chew promos. The mouse network and its evil minions continue to disrespect us, but I digress. FV and RC have wowed us with an unstoppable joyride of purely delicious soapy drama. Meanwhile, in all the insanity of story lines that require suspension of disbelief, believable, character-driven, heartfelt dialogue and interactions pull us in, making us relate to and empathize with these characters. Now THAT is excellence! Sure, Irene’s story sounded like something out… Read more »

Prospect Park needs to find a way to keep both Carlivati (as HW) and Valentini (as EP) at OLTL. They’re both doing great work and are integral to the continued success of this terrific soap. ABC stands to make millions if OLTL and AMC do well on the web. Holding RC to his contract and demoting him to the position of script writer for GH would be a huge mistake. He and FV MUST be allowed to keep helming OLTL! They, as well as the show’s wonderful cast, are a winning team.

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

Lori Loughlin To Make Holiday Movie For Great American Family

Lori Loughlin (Ex-EON and Full House) will be making a holiday movie for Great American Family. Look for production to start later this year.

The announcement of the upcoming Christas pic follows on the heels of Loughlin’s Fall Into Winter which dropped on January 28th on GAF.

The movie marked Lori’s first romantic comedy screen appearance since serving time in 2020 for her part in the college admissions scandal. She returned to acting after her prison time, and after being let go by the Hallmark Channel in When Hope Calls which was a spinoff of When Calls the Heart.

Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media had previously shared: “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years. We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

So what do you think of a Lori Loughlin/Great American Family holiday film on the way for later in 2023? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
