Before the clock strikes twelve and we ring in the New Year, Y&R will end the final week of 2016 with the airing of a classic episode featuring the wedding of Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). It happens next Friday, December 30th.

These nuptials were originally broadcast on April 13, 1984, and featured the first marriage of one the most beloved couples in daytime history.  Look for longtime current cast members in the episode as well including: Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott), Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) and Doug Davidson (Paul Williams).

Programming note: Due to CBS’ broadcast of College Football’s Sun Bowl, this airing of Y&R will air from 10-11AMPST, while Y&R will retain its regularly scheduled timeslot on the the east and central time zones.

So, are you looking forward to seeing this classic soap opera wedding all over again next Friday? Comment below.

I love these classic rebroadcasts— and the added bonus is we now know what happened after that moment in time, so I am sure some of the dialogue will be tainted with irony and inadvertent foreshadowing of things yet to be. To see some of the old sets like they were might to be, to hear the lovely real music the show used to have instead of some tech’s guy IPod playlist– and it was a grand affair–not too much of those any more on soaps— and may be the best fun of all is laughing at all those ugly… Read more »

I too love when they rebroadcast old episodes. Remember when every grand event took place at the infamous Collinade Room? It will be fun to see past cast members and try to rehash the storylines. 1984 was the year I graduated from H.S. I can’t believe I was watching on and off since then. Well now that eveyone who will read this, and knows basic second grade math will figure out my age, I will say MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!! Happy New Year as well. And as always, tune in tomorrow for the next… Read more »

I could not watch one more Luke and Laura wedding..

Addison

Who said anything about Luke and Laura? What about Anna and Robert’s wedding in Italy? Or their “From Here to Eternity” love scene on the beach? Or Tiffany and Sean’s hilarious wedding at the Q mansion?
Or flash forward to the 90’s when Brenda locked eyes with Sonny.
Or how about a flashback to the Q mansion back when it was the social place to be.
Y&R is demonstrating how to incorporate backward glances into the present. This is how you do it.

LOL.. GH….I’d love them to flashback the whole show!

GH could take a note from this, and do a flashback of Dr. Hardy or Alan Q reading to the kids at GH at Christmas. Or even have another Q pick up the mantle like Ned or Michael and continue with this lovely tradition.

The first of many of their marriages. How many times have they tied the knot with each other? I’ll bet they have as many as Sonny and Carly on GH.

My assumption is they are pulling out this classic because something related to this will become important to an upcoming story line. Ms. Sussman is great at breathing life from the past, and I think this will be no different. Something will tie into this in 2017.

Finally—we’re getting a REAL classic episode. The last several that aired as “classic” were just episodes that happened a short while ago. That’s good for refreshing anyone’s mind about the current story or trying to reel in viewers who might have just started tuning in but I wouldn’t call episodes like that classic. Something from the mid-80s is classic and Y&R knew how to breathe fire into the stories back then and the budgets were much bigger than what they are today. If I remember right, Nikki’s dress for that wedding cost $300,000. This was also when Bill Bell was… Read more »

Who is the baby in this episode? He is in a woman’s lap during the wedding

Halley

It’s a girl….the baby was Victoria!
I did some research…Nikki had Victoria before she and Victor were married!!

Ron
Guest

The woman holding the baby was Liz Foster, Jill’s mother. I believe the baby she held was her grandchild… I think it was Snapper’s child (Liz’s son.)

Ron
Guest
Ron

It was Liz Foster. But I think others here are correct. Nikki had the baby before the marriage.

Theresa

Yes, the baby that Liz was holding was indeed Victoria, born onscreen in 1982, I believe she was almost 2 when Victor and Nikki got married

That was Eve Howard. Victor had a one night stand with her. She had a son named Cole, who she told Victor he was the father of. Victoria later married him. Victor had to tell her he was her half brother, at which point they had their marriage annuled. Victor found out later he wasn’t his son, him & Victoria got married again. She hot pregnant with his child, but miscarried. He also had a relationship with Ashley, & Nikki. Miss those good old days!

I enjoyed the flashback to Victor and Nikki’s wedding. There was a young adorable boy that they flashed on a couple times and when Nikki walked down the aisle, he whispered “Mama”. Who was that supposed to be? I have to admit to not watching this show until 2000.

Halley
Guest
Halley

Do you think that was Dylan????

Bright blue eyes…..and we know now all these years later she had that other baby….
It must be!

They need to release ALLLLLLLLL of the past episodes, from the very beginning. I’d pay for the opportunity to watch all those shows from before my time to when i was old enough to start watching up through now even. It breaks my heart I can’t see these.

That is Victoria, who was born in 1982.

Victoria was 2 at the time, so it should have been her. But who was the woman trying to kill her??

So I looked it up. It was Cole’s mom, Eve Howard. She escaped the mental hospital.

By 1984, Victor was planning on marrying Nikki. When Eve read about this in the newspaper at the sanitarium, she tried to switch places with her roommate, who was about to be released but wanted to stay in the sanitarium. Eve knocked out a caterer and changed clothes with her to get into the hotel where Victor and Nikki were getting married. After the wedding, Eve went to Nikki’s room, and she prepared to stab her, but she was interrupted by Nikki’s sister, Dr. Casey Reed. So, Eve climbed into Victor’s trunk which was about to be placed on the… Read more »

I’m only 38 y.o. n have only been watching this since the 90s as I entered high school in 1992, so no I’m not interested in this episode; in fact I’m thoroughly confused n quite annoyed by this old and ancient episode no matter how classic only cuz I haven’t the slightest idea who a lot of these ppl are, so its highly frustrating. I’m more partial to actually knowing the characters n storylines of everyone on screen….trying to Google to keep up with this episode n get some point of reference is totally n completely exhausting!!!

The woman trying to kill Nikki was Eve Howard, Victor’s former secretary who claimed her son Cole was the result of a one-night stand with Victor. When she learned that Cole was named in Victor’s will, Eve came up with a scheme to slowly poison Victor and claim his fortune for her son. Eve’s plot was foiled when Victor’s ex-wife Julia stumbled onto the plot via a phone call she overheard between Eve and her partner in crime Max. Eve was sent away to a mental institution which she escaped from just prior to Friday’s episode. Years later while Victor… Read more »

That was Niki’s conjoined twin. She suffered from a blood disorder which was causing poison to flow through Niki. It was imperative that they be separated. She then grew up trying to poison Niki with the mindset that Niki was supposed to be poisoned because they should’ve never been separated….Bad blood between them!

Bill Bell wrote the episode himself. Not only was it a great wedding, but he made it clear that the Newmans and Abbotts were now the main families of Y and R, as he appeased many fans of the earliest years of the show when he brought back all the Brookes girls and Liz Foster as a farewell to them; they were the original families in the 70s when the program was only 30 minutes.

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Photo: ABC Archives

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

Photo: JPI

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Photo: ABC

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

Photo: ABC Archives

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.

Meanwhile, Newman took to his Facebook page and made this statement: “Thanks to everyone for the sweet posts and messages about my joining the cast of Y&R. I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve had great respect for the show and its wonderful cast for many, many years. I’m happy to be a part of it. I had a lovely zoom meeting with Josh Griffith and Anthony Morina last night. We talked quite a bit about the character, and I’m very excited by the scripts I’m getting so far. I’m scared to death, of course, but I think that’s healthy.  It’ll be a new adventure and I’m feeling pretty blessed to have the opportunity. Cheers”

Look for Robert to make his Y&R debut in February.
