The Revolution continues to be a huge bust in the ratings … leaving OLTL fans outraged!

Courtesy/ABC

While ABC Daytime’s decision to decimate their line-up of daytime dramas, was due in large part to the belief that they can put out to the viewing public less expensive and cheaper production replacement programming to replace the soaps, and do it with content that is informational for women, is proving to be a huge bust! Well, at least where One Life to Live’s replacement, The Revolution is concerned!

The Revolution in week four of its programming life, had abysmal ratings! According to TV Media Insight for the ratings week of February 6-1oth, 2012, “Based on the Live Plus Same Day ratings, week four of The Revolution averaged 1.52 million viewers (versus 1.44 million one week earlier), which dipped by 43 percent compared to year-ago occupant One Life to Live. 

Erosion demographically was as much as 50 percent as follows:  One Life to Live – Week of 2/07/11
Viewers: 2.69 million, Women 25-54: 1.4/ 8, Women 18-49: 1.0/ 6, Women 18-34: 0.5/ 4 The Revolution – Week of 2/06/12 Viewers: 1.52 million, Women 25-54: 0.7/ 4, Women 18-49: 0.5/ 3, Women 18-34: 0.4/ 2 Percent ChangeThe Revolution vs. One Life to Live Viewers: -43, Women 25-54: -70, Women 18-49: -50, Women 18-34: -20

However, ABC is feeling good about their decision to replace All My Children with The foodie show, The Chew!  As for The Chew for this ratings period as compared to All My Children, the for the ratings week were seven percent in total viewers (2.57 to 2.38 million), eight percent in women 25-54 (1.2/ 7 to 1.1/ 6) and 13 percent in women 18-49 (0.8/ 5 to 0.7/ 5).  Results were equal among women 18-34.   This begs the question, have some of the soapers decided to give The Chew a try?

Meanwhile, die-hard and long time One Life to Live fans who have now gone over a month plus now of not having their favorite soap on-air are left scratching their heads, wanting to believe that the network will see the error of their ways and give life back to Llanview, while others believe that ABC will just put up another show of the same ilk as The Revolution but just revise the concept.   Whatever the case, with General Hospital in dire need of ratings and The Revolution tanking, how can this be good for the ABC programming block?   Soapers, let us know your thoughts!

This is absolutely crazy. Is ABC trying for bankruptcy, so it can get out from under Disney? I can’t think of another reason for such a suicidal move to make daytime on ABC a total wasteland. I’m certainly not watching either of the new infomercial shows. They’re idiotic, condescending and degrading to women (and men). Thanks, but my tv will be off until/unless they return OLTL to the airwaves.

So much for their idea that we’re mere sheep that will watch anything during those hours.

OLTL is so missed but looks as if ABC/D doesn’t care if anyone watches the replacement shows or not. I will never ever watch anything ABC day or night except GH. I can;t believe that anyone watches the Chew either. Susan Lucci said it best–
a deadly combination of arrogrance and ignorance.

I miss OLTL so badly and am so happy that the Revulsion is bombing! I have to believe that someone somewhere will realize the potential profitability of OLTL and the huge audience that is just out there waiting, and produce the show!! I dont care where, cable, internet whatever!! Just miss Llanview!
I have no faith in ABC to “do the right thing” they have done nothing but manipulate us for the past year!

They are not going to listen to the fans. You’re right, they’ll replace that stupid show with yet another. As for resurrecting Llanview, I think the hopes for that are dismal as so much time goes by and the actors and crew are signing on to other shows and pursuing other projects. If it does come back, it will probably be with all new actors and writers and will be a shell of itself. I tune into ABC/Daytime at precisely 3:01 to catch GH and once that goes, it will be turned off in my house for good. Fools, they… Read more »

I have been a fan if both shoes for 30 years, but at this point rebuilding landview is the only thing that makes sense, I do have faith in the team in place at GH now, but honestly so much damage has been done to that show, like all my children , that with Disney in charge, the will never be given the… Read more »

I have not watched CHEW or REVOLUTION and will not but from reportage here and elsewhere, CHEW has a couple of personalities I think are more watchable than some on the REV team. Also, food is a more logical center of conversation than rapid makeovers. REV’s concept in description seems a little aimless. And CHEW is on at 1 PM instead of 2 PM. Makes snese why CHEW is doing better. That said, both shows are weak in content and presentation, I am guessing, or they’d be hits. They are not. I do miss CHILDREN and ONE LIFE. I miss… Read more »

I want to watch GH but can’t bring myself to. as it is just not the same without Melissa Archer and the chemistry she shares with Michael Easton, and I am a huge fan of his.

I wonder if ABC really cares about the ratings, or figures they just want to save money and OLTL was expensive to produce. No soap fans will ever watch the REvolution, and people who were not soap fans see nothing worth watching in the Revolution. If ABC does not want OLTL they should give it away (if they don’t want it= why charge) or sell rights very cheaply. Anyone reading this from a network or online entity- we’ll watch you like crazy and loyally if you give us OLTL 2.0

ABC put out a casting call for audience members for The Revolution… yup $30 per person to sit in the audience and look like u r having fun!
So, they can’t get a studio OR viewing audience… yet they’d rather air this dismal attempt at a talk show instead of OLTL?
This tells us exactly what ABC thinks about scripted story telling… and for this reason, I fear it does not bode well for the future of GH. 🙁

One difference between the Revolution and the chew, is the chew is up against 2 soaps. The revolution is up against (at least in Orlando) up against THE TALK and ANDERSON. That is 3 talk shows. 3 you have 3 shows competing for the same viewers. It’s called counter programing. 3 drama’s or 3 sitcoms competing at night would not be real successful. The daytime landscape used to be more diverse with DRAMA’S game show’s talk shows and repeats of prime time shows. Probably didn’t help the soaps that we have had 3 drama’s competing at the same time, for… Read more »

They should have just done the whole natural disaster thing and created 1 new show where a bunch of the characters end up to combine viewers of all 3 soaps. Though not idea, I would have been okay with that and I’m sure most fans would agree that a combined show is better than no show. I am beyond irritated at this point. I started watching GH again because I NEEED at least 1 soap in my life!! but I’m really concerned that GH will be torched as well. Makes me sick.

As for THE CHEW- I can see why that one is doing alright– everyone can enjoy a food show, but the revolution… no one wants to watch that junk every single day. It wouldn’t surprise me if THE CHEW loses steam at some point as well… not sure there are enough recipes to fill up the next 40 years. 😉

The network only cares about money. It’s all about the bottom line, and that’s it. Decision makers in America, be they corporate or government, do not care what the average person thinks or feels or wants. It’s all about spin and putting on a smile while they screw us; but if we speak out, we’re unreasonable, undiplomatic and disagreeable. That’s just the way it is in 21st century America. Long live ONE LIFE TO LIVE.

Ten months after the cancellation bomb shell, I continue to ask the same question; why was OLTL cancelled? It made no sense to me at all (still doesn’t). Boy ABC is really in dire straits regarding daytime decisions. What to do, what to do with replacement #2? Are they really willing to risk replacement #3 tanking because of poor lead in ratings? GH’s ratings are low due to the hideous ratings of replacement #2. I’m no TV expert, but it doesn’t take rocket science to figure that out. Maybe it was the plan all along, who knows.

Intersting numbers for the Chew, some thought they did well because of the holiday shows. I’ve seen it a few times, the 2 women are pretty good. ABC is cleaning up on the switch from AMC to the Chew. Darn. I have not seen 2 seconds of the Revolution, sounds too intense for a mid day show. People want to escape their problems. I’ll bet they are coming up with a replacement for the 2pm slot. It won’t be a soap. ABCD will not go back. They’ll cancel GH and be done with the soap genre. I don’t plan to… Read more »

GH is suffering because of the weak lead in from the Repulsion. The Chew numbers are a mystery and I bet ABC is manipulating the numbers to make it seems like it is a better show than AMC. I watch the Food Network Channel for a reason and only they will get my viewership for any type of food programming. The Chew is a sad replacement show that will not last and the Revolution really only has one life to live and that will end very soon!

I have no confidence whatsoever in our favorite soaps ever returning….none. ABC will never concede to our sentiments or our outrage.

The thought of working her once again into network television right in the midst of these changing tides of daytime makes my blood boil. CBS putting her on the evening news a few years back was simply awful judgment IMHO and the ratings decline over there proved it.

I dont know about where U live, but there is room for Kati in my market. She would come on at 4pm, as Oprah did, and the local news would resort back to airing at 5pm, as it had done for year’s after Oprah. I don’t understand all the fuss about making room for Kati, by axing General Hospital. There is room for Kati at 4pm, by moving the local news BACK to 5pm. No one wants to look at news from 4pm until 7pm anyway. That’s over-kill. 5pm until 7pm is more than enough news.

Why hasn’t that train wreck of a show The Revolution been cancelled yet? ABC has no problem cancelling their Prime Time shows when they tank (Working It) so why don’t they do the same for Daytime, is it because they’re afraid that would be admitting that they made a HUGE mistake in cancelling OLTL? I think we all know the answer to that question.

Heather

While it’s always great to read about The Revolution tanking, this author from Media Insight TV seems to have a bias in favor of One Life to Live, meaning that what he says about The Revolution may all be wishful thinking.

For me to have insurance that The Revolution has a chance of getting cancelled to make room for General Hospital, I need to read the news on a third party source such as the NY Times, Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, EW, etc.

I miss the days when broadcasting was a public service and the Networks cared about what programing they put out over the airwaves. Unfortunately, today… all the networks are owned by corporate parents that care more for the bottom line than quality and what the viewers want. I have not watched ABC daytime from 12 noon onwards since they cancelled AMC and OLTL. I rarely watch any of ABC prime time lineup… and they seem to be cancelling the shows I enjoy. So… until the rat at Disney changes his mind… I’m not bothering to watch the American Banal Co.

Max
Guest

Actually, you are right. You have brought up an important, perhaps overlooked issue here. The Federal Communications Act requires broadcasters to act “in the public interest.” This is because the spectrum (airwaves) are considered to be publicly owned. Clearly, the replacement show is proving not to be the greater public’s interest, but rather in the networks financial interest. While there has been much debate what that means, a knowledgable attorney may want to make a name for themselves by suing the network in the “public interest.” just a thought. 😉

Given the poor results from the revolution, abc may reconsider if the affiliates pressure them to. The meeting of ABC Affiliates is at The Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena May 21 and 22, 2012. These are the local abc TV stations. They are bound to be loosing money because of the revolution and they can put enormous pressure on the network.

Sorry to hear this. Some are like that, fortunately most local stations care what viewers think especially when you call the GM or owner, and it adversely affects their profits. Perhaps calling the owners of local business that advertise on them may help. I have been a part of groups which have done that and it worked. They eventually got the message.

Still devasted over loss of OLTL. Will not watch ABC daytime with exception of GH,which by the way was not my fave. I tried watching CBS/NBC soaps but am not familiar with story line. If I want to watch TV at 1:00 I will listen to The Talk on CBS. I, too, like the idea of the Real Housewives of Llanview. ABC should bring back OLTL..they can always streamline with fewer characters. Or, perhaps, bring it to primetime since 1/3 to 1/2 of ABC shows are really worthless.

Dancing with the Stars

Chrishell Stause Has Taken Steps Towards Motherhood

Former soap opera star, Chrishell Stause, who is current appearing on the reality series Selling Sunset and the the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, shared some personal news with PEOPLE that she hopes to start a family

In the exclusive, Stause shares, “I have taken the steps to freeze my eggs.”  Adding,  “I definitely had a different idea for where I would be at this age and stage in my life.  There’s a family aspect that I’m missing that I hope is still a possibility for me.”

Of course, Stause is still pretty fresh off her shocking marriage break-up in November of 2019 with This is Us star, Justin Hartley.  But because of that she wants to take the pressure off of herself and a potential life partner in terms of a time-frame to bring kids into the world.

Photo: ABC

Meanwhile, Stause continues to prepare each week for ballroom dance competition on Dancing with the Stars with pro partner, Gleb Savchenko

She admitted that she was actually getting ready to freeze her eggs when she joined the cast for season 29 of DWTS.  “I was in the middle of the process when DWTS approached me. So for the first weeks of rehearsal, I was giving myself daily hormone shots while learning the tango, and the procedure was done a few days before the premiere of the show.”

So, what do you think about Chrishell’s plans to become a mom when she is ready?  Are you rooting her on Dancing with the Stars? Comment below.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.
