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.

My daughters and I are so pleased to have “All my children” back on t.v. and can’t wait for the new season. I ordered own network when I heard it was bringing “All my children” back and I am really happy I did.

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
Guest

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!

I would love to see Guiding Light repeats and I know others who would too. I still miss the show. I will not watch the stupid game show they put in it’s place!

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!

Bad choice.. I will miss it now. I watch y&R at this time and DVR Days… so there is no way I can watch it. I wish they would leave it alone. STUPID.

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!

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.
