Starting Monday Aug 5th OWN Scheduling Change: All My Children Stays at 1PM while One Life to Live Moves to 1:30!

Looks like Oprah’s “Summer Fling with the Soaps” is getting a bit of a scheduling makeover beginning this coming Monday, August 5th, and the change should make for a much less confusing, and easier time for soap fans to watch these two iconic series return to television and much more streamlined!

All My Children will remain at 1PM EST/12PMCST with their new episode of the day, while One Life to Live previously at 3PM, will now be showing their new episode of the day directly after AMC starting at 1:30PMEST/12:30CST!

So now you can get your soap block back as you originally had it during its ABC days! You can watch first All My Children, second One Life to Live, and then if you are a General Hospital fan too, you can head over to ABC for the 2PM new episode!

In addition, it appears OWN has removed the AMC and OLTL repeat airing of the episode from the day before immediately before the new episode of the day, and the immediate re-airing of the new episode of the day.

What do you think of the scheduling shift?  Glad you can catch AMC and OLTL now immediately back to back? Weigh-in!

It looks like Prospect Park isn’t the only one that likes to mess with schedules. But it was confusing. Would make more sense to air the block and then repeat the block.

It does make better sense, meanwhile, I will continue to watch on huluplus. 🙂 any time I want to.

I don’t even understand what Michael wrote about Oprah’s change. Why is there so much freaking confusion…it’s not rocket science!!!

Makes more sense to keep them together, then it doesn’t interfere with GH. Too bad ABC didn’t just keep them on air like it used to be! Thanks to Oprah for airing them at least for the summer. Hopefully they will air Autumn/fall, winter and spring too!

It probably is better one right after the other, but I’ve been watching B&B at 1:30 ET, so that messes it up for me I don’t watch AMC at all.

This is a better idea. It would be great, also, if they could repeat the block at 7 PM to see how many fans would like to follow it then. Until first run episodes are aired, numbers will never hit their potential!

They should repeat them sometime. And what about friday? I guess OWN took that away too! I wonder if they’ll even finish playing all the episodes they promised?

,
It would be so very much better if the soaps ran during the evening..
Daytime viewing is near dead, so few are home during the day, it is no longer the 80’s..

PP should have gone for a primetime airing of the soaps on OWN !

Love that they are back on TV. Would love to see “Guiding Light” repeats not to mention other lost shows. Who can make that possible?

Blake

Oh larri, that would be awesome to have Guiding Light repeats wouldn’t it? I would definitely DVR and watch those! And record them to dvds!

The shows shouldve always been airing back to back. I just wish OWN was better promoting the shows. Why not advertise them during The Haves and the Have Nots? I regularly see ads for that show during OLTL.

Not many people knew they were on! Why not promote the soaps during GH? That’s where the viewers are!

At least the change is sensible. AMC, OLTL and GH in a 2-hour block even if you have to change channels at 2pm! LOL.

Sounds like OWN plans to retain broadcasting the two soap reboots, a sensible move. Now let’s hope PP does not tarry long before inaugurating “season 2”.

Well, I guess the first thing I would say is that OWN must not have been happy with the ratings, as we are going from 4 hours to 1 hour per afternoon for soaps. Yes, he schedule was a bit confusing…I especially didn’t like the double airing of the new episodes. However, I did like the ability to miss a day and be able to catch the previous day’s episode. I also thought OLTL was performing well at 3pm where there are no other soaps airing on other channels. At 1pm, at least on the East Coast, AMC and OLTL… Read more »

I agree. Liked the 3:00 time for OLTL much better. Both B&B and Days are on at 1:30.

The 2 soaps are re-runs..
It is not as if they were actually airing on TV, just 10 weeks of re-runs.. 🙂

The ratings had to be better than those old repeats OWN runs all the time! Not enough people knew they were on. Why not promote them during GH? I can’t think of a better place!

Michael, for God’s sakes, what’s up with this “season finale” business? Since when did any soap have a season finale? Will AMC be taking a break from broadcast? If so, when will it be back on the net? Also it sounds like TOLN/PP is dropping hulu? Maybe I am mis-reading their press release, but so far, NO ONE from PP/TOLN is responding AT ALL to my repeated inquiries/posts on FB. An email which says I can write to ask questions just comes back with an auto-response. HELP US OUT HERE! We fans do not want AMC to have any break,… Read more »

I was informed;
The second season is merely the crew, cast ect returning from their 5 weeks off and resuming filming of the 2nd season and during that time season 1 will still be running as usual until the 2nd season starts.. There will be no break.
AMC and OLTL will always be on HuLu that is now the TOLN sub network.
Both sops will remain on HuLu and for 10 weeks ”re-runs” of the first 40 episodes will be shown on OWN.
So, all is well from what I was told.

It only started a few weeks ago & they’re dumping it already! Why? I liked the original schedule where they repeated episodes! The big summer fling has been reduced from 4 hrs to 1! I was really enjoying those 4 hrs. Now no repeats at all! What a let down. They would rather play repeats of old programs than new soaps! That’s why nobody watches OWN!

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
