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.

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.

After speculation a few years back that at some point, Milo Ventimiglia would find his way onto the hit comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, that would reunite him with his former Gilmore Girls boss, Amy Sherman-Palladino, now appears to be coming true!

News out of TV Line reports that Milo will guest star in season four of the series.  However, details of who he will play are being kept under wraps.

Ventimiglia will be the second cast member from This Is Us to appear on Maisel, following Sterling K. Brown who appeared in season 3.

The fourth season of the Amazon Prime series has been in production since January – after plenty of stops and starts due to Covid-19 and restrictions.

Gilmore Girl fans remember Ventimiglia as Jess Mariano, the troubled love interest of Rory Gilmore.

Ventimiglia will also wrap his time as Jack on This Is Us, when the show finishes its upcoming sixth and final season of the NBC drama.

So, what role do you think Milo might play on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
