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.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.
