This is so great

Fantastic. It is going to happy Dinah. I have a feeling we the fans will get our wish soon, and that is that Oprah will be picking all new episodes of both soaps.

Ohhhh I hope OWN will bring AMC and OLTL back for good. I have been lost. Without my shows!!! No PC at home just satellite tv- OWN keeping them for good is my best
Chance to watch! !!! Please Oprah! !! Please Oprah! !!!

Im sure there are a lot of people out there who would watch but dont even know its on OWN. It should air repeats in the evening for those who cant watch in daytime. More adds too…both shows should be advertised during OWNs more popular shows.

I am so excited in these numbers. I currently watch the new shows on Huluplus and thoroughly enjoying both soaps. I have a gut feeling that OWN is going to pick up the new episodes. That would make a lot of viewers happy including myself to have them back on TV. Eat your words Oprah!

I know a lot of people that would watch if it was on in the evenings, all the soapnet watchers said they would watch it at night.

Taking into consideration that the 2 soaps are re-runs, they are doing much better than I personally expected..
I am one that does not watch re-runs..
When I have seen a show and know what will happen,where and when it will happen, and the outcome, I find no interest in watching a re-run..
I am joyed to see the 2 soaps doing extraordinarily well!!!!!!! 🙂
I see long future for both the soaps, and that is a good thing!..

See Oprah, you were wrong.. Soaps Still Matter..

I agree Jewell!

You are so right Jewell. I have a feeling we will be getting good news soon; that is Oprah will carry the new shows. Keep watching fans.

I agree with Jewell also!

Congratulations fans! We are proving to Oprah that soaps still matter. I love how Prospect Park has made the soaps realistic and up to date with this century if I may call it that. My gut is that after the summer fling Oprah is going to cut a deal and start carrying the AMC & OLTL. I believe this to be true because why else would she run the re-runs. My thought is that she sees that Tyler Perry’s soap The Haves and Have Knots are doing great in ratings and Dallas returned to TNT with great ratings. So Oprah eat your words and apologize to the fans that you were wrong.

i can’t get OWN on my TV 🙁 so i keep watching it on Hulu thanks PP 🙂

I dont think these ratings are very remarkable at OWN. Still think that the shows would be better placed at 7pm or later in the evening on cable.

Lack of ads reminding viewers of day and time and channel – is a hardship. And ever changing scheduling and # of episodes.

It all seems very uncertain. Hoping for best. I am watching OLTL new epis on Hulu.

The ratings are very good considering the 40 episodes are ”reruns”
The ones watching the reruns would mainly be fans who have fallen behind and new viewers..
The soaps/reruns, are doing well on OWN .. 🙂

Is it enough for her?

Wish they weren’t having a break.I been tunning in everyday for ratings hoping for a network.A network means better shows.But there is no advertising on major networks where people mainly watch who have no clue these soaps are on.with the season ending really don’t need that.PP needs to be able to produce more shows.People are not happy…

I am very happy..
And a network does not mean better shows lol ..
TRON is a production network..
The soaps would be exactly as they are now, produced, written and filmed in the PP studios.

(the soaps are doing very well, and are a product of the internet 🙂

Don’t get me wrong – I love my soaps. Have for 30+ years. But there’s no way on Earth I would support Oprah, her network, or the soaps airing exclusively on her network (if that’s where this is heading). I would stop watching the shows I love so much if that happens. And coming from me, that’s really saying something. I seriously don’t understand how anyone could support Oprah after she was given the opportunity to save our shows with OWN back in 2011 and she said NO. She said soaps were a dead genre, so why should we allow those same soaps to save her failing network?? That’s just hypocritical. She didn’t want to help me, so I sure as heck ain’t gonna help her!

So because you’re angry at her because she didn’t take on the MASSIVE task of the production of these shows, so you’re willing to just let them go completely? I find that pretty childish actually. She was wrong then…so let’s punish her forever and screw EVERYBODY now., eh? ::tsk, tsk.:: 🙁 Personally, I’m very glad the shows are on OWN, because that allows my 79 year old mother to have a chance to actually watch these shows that she loves so much, and I don’t want her to lose them again just because you’re pissed off about the past. I find that pretty damn selfish, actually.

We have to remember cOprah was using Discovery’s money and just now making a profit where she is now paying them back for debt she owes them.Another Nielsen said the genre was dying.No one wanted them.Many were ask.ABC is the reason they where cancelled.I watch GH everyday on ABC.Thats all I watch.Only to back the soap genre.I watch AMC and OLTL on Own only to back the soap genre.I do this to prove the genre isn’t dying.Even though they have raised with Nielsen I still believe more then 2.5 million people are watching GH.Bad thing is Nielsen has the say.I didn’t like she turned them down but I will back them no matter where they are at.Oprah will survive regardless if they make it or not.We need a network.To many without internet cannot see them.It also means higher revenue and that can only mean better shows and hopefully more coming back.

I hate to say it, but I must agree with you. I hate the fact that Oprah talked down to us, the soap fans, she did it in a very condescending way. I think most people did not have a problem with her saying no to us, but rather the WAY she said no. Since then, I stopped watching Oprah, and obviously I was not alone as her ratings have been terrible. With all that said, I love AMC and OLTL much more than I dislike Oprah. And if I have to watch OWN to see AMC and OLTL, then so be it! I am a true fan of these soaps and will watch them on any channel to support them! And that should be the mindset of all of the fans of AMC and OLTL! Everyone says that the ratings are great to be reruns. And while I certainly agree with that statement, I still think that the ratings are higher than what is being told. Once again, how are these ratings being tabulated? By Neilson? And if so, here we go again! I have not heard of any soap fan being a Neilson viewer. And I also think that many fans still are not aware that they are on OWN. It would be great if some advertising could be done. But anyway, I beg all fans of AMC and OLTL to please watch these soaps on OWN, regardless of how you feel about OPRAH! Like me, let your love for these soaps be greater than your dislike of Oprah!

Well said Lynda W.It isn’t Oprah we are backing its our soaps.She really doesn’t have anything on i’m interested in watching.Way before she turned them down I just didn’t like her shows.So I just DVR the soaps like I do GH on ABC and no other reason do I turn either network on.Just to back my soaps…

For those interested in how well each episode is doing with all the individual airings added together, here’s my “Adjusted Ratings Chart”. When the total airings of each episode are added together in this manner, these may not represent unique viewers as some of them may have watched a particular episode more than once but they still all represent viewers that were tuned in to the station during a broadcast and saw the ads shown during each one:

Episode 9 (repeat): 49,000 viewers (one airing) (Total: 352,000/four airings)
Episode 10 (repeat): 112,000 viewers (two airings) (Total: 418,000/four airings)
Episode 11: 423,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 12: 461,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 13: 374,000 viewers (four airings)
Episode 14: 305,000 viewers (three airings)

Episode 9 (repeat): 56,000 viewers (one airing) (Total: 462,000/four airings)
Episode 10 (repeat): 110,000 viewers (two airings) (Total: 383,000/four airings)
Episode 11: 333,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 12: 358,000 viewers (five airings)
Episode 13: 328,000 viewers (four airings)
Episode 14: 274,000 viewers (three airings)

Well, pending any further schedule changes or upcoming marathons, looks like this will be my last Adjusted Ratings Chart. Will be very interesting to see if next week, the numbers trend more like this chart or if they still are comparable to the first-run episode’s so far.

I think the ratings for both soaps on OWN would be much higher if more people were able to get OWN. I know folks who have cable but they would have to pay extra money to pick up the Soaps. I don’t think these shows should be considered like the HBO’s, Cinamax, Showtime. This show should be on regular cable and I know more people would watch the show. My mom loves both of these soaps but her cable network wants her to pay extra to watch OWN as well other channels and for what we pay for cable it should be included and not an extra expense. Thank you!

I’m happy for the ratings especially for summer viewing and re-runs.
I watch AMC on ITunes. I would be viewing on OWM if OWN Canada would pick it up. It would be nice to have both options to view.

Love OLTL on HuluPLus AND OWN.

Oprah gotta pay her bills too – so this may help!

OWN has made it impossible to know what episode to watch of AMC or OLTL. They come on 3 episodes in a row, most are repeats, and trying to DVR them doesn’t even work. Only one will DVR. I honestly have had it trying to see them in order. No where does it list any list of times to see the new ones, and OWN has done a terrible job of organizing these shows. That is why the numbers are not better.

I still watch the OLTL &AMC on

Jeffrey on OLTL has that tatto on the bottom of his foot…Is a trader or not? Is he putting one over on Viki at the paper? I wonder what he is up too? No good?


Sorry to hear that. There are a lot of people behind the scenes who would wish that you would check it out for the shows, not the network it appears on. It’s only there livelihood, after all.

I am sorry to here you feel this way about Oprah. There are so many that hold a grudge because she did no pick them up previously but you know she is a business woman and I believe she realizes she made a mistake or she would not be running the first 40 episodes for the summer. Trust me there is a reason for this. I honestly believe OWN will be picking up the 2nd season and that could not make us fans happier. I have watched both revived soaps faithfully on huluplus and thoroughly enjoyed them. Please support our soaps if you are a fan and if not please keep your negative comments to yourself and that is no disrespect to you.

i like the time all my children 1:00 oclock and oltl at 1:30 and general hospital follow i get a chance to watch all three. keep them running oprah i have to record but watch them when i get home. good work oprah. thank you.
Helen mason

keep supporting OWN. keep in mind that all of your hard-earned dollars are going to contribute to the OW fund to buy $38,000 handbags. such fools. why don’t you just get HULU Plus. what is the big whoop about OWN prey tell?

just scrolled ‘up’ and read some of your comments. amazing! so many of you dislike Oprah and for good reason, not flip reasons, and yet you pay to watch OWN. Don’t you know that your wallet does the talking. what is wrong with HULU and the others that play the 2 soaps. why are you going to support someone you don’t like, who lives the way you never will (which is fine for her) only to be recognized when the $$$’s start to show. it amazes me. use your heads. I’m fine with HULU and the others. my provider charges for OWN and it would never occur to me to subscribe. I detest the woman and would never support anything she does. let her go elsewhere for her funds. I work too hard for my money to throw it away on someone I do not like (who basically thumbed her nose at us) or something I do not like. In my book I believe that is what you would call smart and cost effective.

Jas, you asked, “why would you support someone who lives the way you never will”? Well, then that would be many, many, many more besides Oprah. I watch Dr. Phil, Modern Family, Scandal, OLTL, AMC, General Hospital, Law & Order, Jimmy Fallon, Greys Anatomy, The Middle, Two & A Half Men, etc. And every single one of those shows have people on them that live a life that I never will! Everyone on TV basically lives a life that I never will. So are people supposed to not watch or support the shows or those people on the shows, because they will never live a life like the celebrities/stars? Also,not sure if you read my comments a little ways above, but I stated that if people are really fans of OLTL & AMC, they should put aside their dislike for Oprah, as their love for these soaps should be greater! You ask why does anyone want to watch them on OWN instead of on HULU? Many reasons. First off, they belong back on TV. Also, many people like myself can never watch a single episode without my PC freezing up, or it stops constantly as it is BUFFERING, and most times the sound and what they are doing is not matching up. Also, I hate watching it on my little laptop screen. Again, I am no fan of Oprah, but to get these soaps back on TV where they belong, I will watch any channel to make that happen. Also, keep this in mind. The more people that watch the soaps on OWN, and the numbers keep on increasing, we the fans that Oprah snubbed will have the last laugh, as we will be able to say, “TOLD YOU SO”! I can’t think of a better way to get even with Oprah, than to make her eat her words! I hope you will keep an open mind to what I have said, and support the soaps that are being shown on OWN. You don’t have to watch any other programs on OWN. We are supporting AMC & OLTL not OWN or Oprah. I certainly respect how you feel about Oprah, and I feel the same way actually.

Well Lynda W, you have definitely taken clueless to a whole new level. Go ahead and throw your money away. Obviously, you enjoy doing that and probably complain later that you don’t have enough money for other things. Or, another thing you probably aren’t even aware of, is that investing some money in something that will enhance your future financially is far more beneficial. So go ahead and support Oprah. Not to mention that the point of my story was NOT about people who have more than I do or live greater than I do. My point, again, which you seem not to get, is why support someone who clearly didn’t support you from the git go. OWN is the only one who profits here and you will ultimately be held captive by how much you pay for OWN, when the programs are aired, how much of a hiatus will be taken, etc. The other stations offer much more for much less. I will not contribute hard-earned money to OWN, plain and simple. You will not gain more from OWN, probably less.

I am SO happy that my beloved AMC and ONTL are back on “tv”!!

BUT, I am really sad that I missed the first few weeks!! I didn’t even know these soaps were coming back to tv. ?? Where was (is) the advertising??? The news should have been advertised on other cable channels, as well as on OWN. Actually, I never watch OWN. I only caught wind of the soaps airing because I happened to see them on the tv guide channel accidentally.

I hope Oprah is going to keep these two soaps on permanently!!
ABC made such a huge mistake when they cut them. I’m sure the replacement shows (Chow something or other?? and the other show??) are HUGE fails, but I doubt ABC would ever admit it.

*does happy dance that the 2 BEST soaps everrrrrrrrr, are back on!!! YAY!!*

Why do people keep telling Oprah to apologize for not wanting to originally save Soap Operas? SHE IS SHOWING our shows now. No, she didn’t want to be responsible for saving soaps and producing them. There were lots of risk and minimal reward if it failed. But, she is graciously purchasing and giving airtime on her network for the fans. Instead of eat it , I say THANK YOU!!!

I have been watching these shows since inception. My “relationship” with them lasted longer than my 2 marriages… lol.. I was so happy to see they came back on TELEVISION. It’s just not the same watching from a laptop or online. PLEASE keep these two shows on OWN. thanks Oprah for your smart thinking :).

More advertisement is needed. I just found out that Own picked up the series. Since it is no longer offered on one if the free local channels you’re bound to lose alot of viewers but for those withe a cable or satellite provider we just need to know what network will air our favorite show as well as the days and time the series airs. Im a huge fan and I will oder OWN on my network provider just to watch All My Children.

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Photo: JPI

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

Photo: JPI

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
