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.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
