Well it depends on how “classic” these episodes are. We know for holidays and stuff, ABC’s idea of classic episodes is something from eariler in the year or a couple of months eariler. I would love for them to go back to the 80’s or even 1990’s. Glad Brothers & sisters is comming on though. It was a good show and deserves a bigger following.

I have always wanted the ABC soaps to air repeats on SoapNet so I am most excited by the classic episodes that will be airing of AMC, OLTL, and GH. It still amazes me how great these shows were 15/16 years ago when they were so much more entertaining to watch. The whole one hour daily drama needs to change from a production standpoint so much and the stories need to improve and I am hoping Prospect Park plans on evolving AMC and OLTL and not just airing them. As far as GH, if they thought all they needed was… Read more »

If the network is called Soapnet, why not feature soaps? Another World, As The World Turns, Generations, Sunset Beach, Santa Barbara, Guiding Light, Port Charles, The City, Loving…..I could go on. To me, this network was a joke since day one. I mean it’s nice that they air the soaps at night, if you miss them in the day, but they never really focused on featuring daytime programs. Hours and hours of Beverly Hills 90210, or One Tree Hill…that are prime time dramas should never have been the major focus. Plus I miss watching Soap Talk with Lisa Rinna and… Read more »

Hey, the reason they don’t show the old soaps is because you and I would see how good the writing and the actors use to be. They did use to show AW and the old Dallas, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest but then they decided to go with the younger crowd. A shame!!!

I miss the older soaps, too, kay killgore. I find more and more I drift on to youtube to catch scenes or openings of our dearly departed programs. There is always such chatter about the diversity of cable. And while it really isn’t all that diverse actually, a soap network with classic episodes and reruns of classic primetime programs would be welcome by me. Seems it is not going to be SoapNet, however.

I have read that AMC and eventually OLTL will be on the internet. That is fine and dandy but internet people that have a cap on their internet may not get to watch them because it will use all of there k bits or whatever there are called. I was hoping that soapnet might show them all on the weekend. I’m going to be pretty upset if I won’t be able to see them at all. I look forward to watching them and now there taking two of the best soaps off the air to put on what, another reality… Read more »

I agree with you 100%. I said they should call Oprah!!! There are not too many good shows on her network, so an assortment of daytime and nightime soaps would be an added feature. Then maybe I would watch more of her network.

Why did you cancel “Young and the Restless” on the weekends, Saturdays? It was comforting to catch up on the soaps, from Mon thru Fri; on Saturdays. Why did you mess with a perfect arraingement? Please re-schedule my favorite soap in the intire world, back to the old way it was; it is so inconvienant to try to catch up with what go’s on with the story during the week!!!!!!! Are you at least considering putting the soap back to it’s original weekend slot from 7pm- till midnight? It did make the stories flow better. YOUR THROWING ME OFF EVERY… Read more »

I have enjoyed watching the reruns of AMC from 12:00am – 3:00am and wonder if you will be airing the new shows that will be starting on an internet station this April, 2013. I also wonder if you will go way back to the beginning of AMC or perhaps air shows during a time when the plot lines were the hottest , i/e When Erica was married to Traves Montgomery but then his brother Jack entered the picture!!!. AS a matter of fact, what would stop your network from airing the new AMC shows in primetime?

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
