In the brand new issue of Soap Opera Digest which includes their highly anticipated Best & Worst in Soaps in 2011, the publication had named the canceled, One Life to Live as the Best Show of 2011!  And, if you pick up a copy of the issue at newsstand now you will see that OLTL picked up many “Bests” including Best Story of the year for Tale of the Two Todds!  And, Best Social Issue for the Teen Bullying story.  OLTL also picked up a nod for Best Special Episode for the hilarious and very memorable Vicker Man Premiere!

The Young and the Restless was picked as the Most Disappointing Show of 2011, while another canceled soap, All My Children was picked as the Most Improved Show of 2011.  The Worst Story of the Year honors went to Chloe’s A Prostitute on Days of our Lives.

From Best and Worst Wedding,  Best and Worst Recast, Best and Worst Villain, Best and Worst Location, Best and Worst Triangle, there is lots to discuss as the magazine expounds on their choices! Make sure to grab a copy.

All we can say, is kudos to SOD for getting it right giving the Best Show of 2011 to One Life.   This is the year that it will most certainly be the critics darling.

I should get that, I always loved SOD’s best and worst of magazines. And OLTL deserves Best Soap, along with Y&R as Worst Soap. They got those right!

It’s such a shame that they canceled the best soap on tv! I’ve always considered it the best soap and have been a loyal viewer since day one. Why did they have to break our hearts all over again by promising us a re-boot future and then pulling the plug?

Agreed. Let’s all make this the biggest selling issue ever. Perhaps if all the fans purchase a copy, Soap Opera Degist can hand Brian Frons and ABC those numbers too !

OLTL was voted Best Story: Tale of Two Todds, Most Shocking Plot Twist: Gigi/Stacy, Best Triangle: Viki-Charlie & Echo, Best Returns: OLTL Vets, Best Exit: Dorian Lord, Best Social Issue: Bullying, Best Special Episode: Vickerman Premiere, and Best Show….In the worst category OLTL received the following….Worst Secret: Who Killed Eddie Ford, Worst Exit: Marty, & Worst Trend: Dual Roles

The next one was received, but had nothing to do with what OLTL did…it was
Worst News: The Cancellations of AMC & OLTL (Which made Brian Frons the soap fans’ biggest villain – a title that he earned),

I’m thrilled for One Life to Live and I’m hoping that some bright and creative entrepreneur will find a way to save this show. With 2.6 million viewers and cast and crew willing to do whatever it takes to keep the show alive, why can’t someone make this work?!

After the week of Thanksgiving, OLTL is at 2.8. They have over 400,000 viewers from last year. I wish someone would pick it up too.

Not gonna happen. It’s over folks. Move on and devote your energy to save the four soaps left so that they don’t suffer the same fate.

@Heather

The other four soaps are not worth saving. OLTL is the only that should be saved.

I hope OLTL submits the Todd reveal or the Todd/Blair cabin scenes for Emmy consideration. Hands down, the best episodes of the year.

Hey.. and before we lose our show.. let not forgot how even Janet Jackson gave credit to the show in one of her first hits “What Have You Done For Me Lately” from 1986…

“You ought to be thankful for the little things,
but little things are all you seem to give
You’re always putting off what we can do today
Soap opera says, you’ve got “One Life To Live”
Who’s right, who’s wrong?
What have you done for me lately?”

Maybe we need a OLTL trivia page… so we all can remember and discover how much this show touch everywhere.

Blake
Blake

Yeah I always thought that was cool that she put that in her song! And let’s not forget Sarah Michelle Geller is a big fan of OLTL instead of AMC while it was still on, that says a lot.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
