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 !

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
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!

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
