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.

It doesn’t air on OWN in Canada at all. Our only option is ITunes.

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.

I have them scheduled on the dvr so it changed automatically. Glad to have them back on tv at any old time.

Yes!

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 !

Paula

I don’t care!! I will watch them anywhere any time!! I’m just sooo glad they are back!!!!! 🙂

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!

Nettie

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!

Paul

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.

lipstickcat

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”.

Eric Buchanan

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 are up against soaps on both CBS and NBC.

Karen
Karen

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.. 🙂

lipstickcat

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, nor should it, if at all possible. It feels like PP/TOLN, while I appreciate all they have done, are just playing hide the ball with us by issuing vague press release bombs, then clamming up when anyone asks questions. This is disrespectful to us loyal fans! Help us out, please, with some clear answers to these very important questions! THANK YOU!

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!

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

TONIGHT: GH and Marine Vet, Chris Van Etten Featured In All-New Episode Of '68 Whiskey'

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

Photo: SOD

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
