Thank you Michael! I am never going to get over the loss of OLTL! Heartbreaking! I am still in disbelief and the thought of going through this again in September. I wish the best for all involved with OLTL! They have been awesome! I am really going to miss them so much! They have been a part of my life since the 60’s. Reality will really set in on Monday the 16th! UNBELIEVABLE!

All of this is so sad, Today on one life to live when vicki was talking during the end of fraternity row,I cried ,erika slezak has made me cry so many times I will miss her ,all the wonderful stories ,the insane stories, the love ,the hate, the fighting ,This is not going to be easy,saying goodbye never is,the thought of never seeing this cast together in this wonderful place called landview ,Im at a loss for words,to explain how I feel.Its like your reading a good book then it comes to the end and you feel a little sad,that its over,this book in landview with so many pages has been open for 43 years,I still cant believe that tomorrow at this time ,the book closes,its over ,the end.

Did you know Erika Slezak herself said recently that a soap is like a good book that you never finish? It never ends & that is so true-every day is a new exciting chapter to look forward too. Haven’t we all slowed down at the end of a good book & clasped the book to our chests after the final page, feeling the emotion of it all? Why is our good book of OLTL ending tomorrow? WHY?

I can’t begin to tell you how sad I am that the show is ending I have been there from the beginning, and for it to end this way is so upsetting not only for myself, the fans, the cast, and crew members. With so many people losing their jobs this is just another example of the mighty dollar winning. I want to thank of you for the great job you have done over the years Erika Selezak you are a great actress and will be missed, and far as Michael you are one of the lucky ones to go onto GH (I already watch that show my cousin Tony Geary is on it) Best of luck to all the cast and crew.

I’m extremly sad as well, Mad too…….This is sooooooooo wrong. IMO the most horriffic thing ever done to Television…To destroy a program, that, Imo, happens to be the Best Soap on. I haven’t watched GH since They made every single show about Sonny..
Tony Geary was The best Actor on that Program..Love when he is on..But can’t stand the same ole Sonny, Jason Mob Garbage.. I just can’t. Same Looks, same storyline..YUK.
I think Geary Should have had never been off of that show..When he left..I did too.
I know he came back…and caught some of those episodes, But ALL ABOUT SONNY…enough……
The Last Show of OLTL is about 15 hours away…VERY VERY SAD.
I HATE FRONS AND DISNEY.

Agree 100%

I’m shocked at how very sad I am…..I’m losing family…….DAMNIT.

I know it. Me too, exactly.

Thanks Michael!!! They could do hours of those kind of moments. It’s really sad and the end is too close. OLTL will be missed!

Maybe the next time Jeanne Cooper is out ill… Erika S could fill in for her… she would be great in that role. I do not wish any illness on Ms Cooper… just think it would be interesting.

While I feel your pain of not seeing the one of a kind dearly loved Erika Slezak every day on OLTL-girl, she is only 65 years old! Jeanne Cooper is 80! Lord, Erika is WAY too young to play Katherine. But I thought Michael Learned did a great job recently replacing Jeanne temporarily. I guess the next oldest women on Y&R would be Jill, Gloria, Niki-they are late 50s to early 60s? There is not really that many women on that show of Erika’s age.

Ooh-what if she replaced Stephanie on B&B??? Not wishing illness of her either-but give Erika a chance to play a real “B”? She could pull if off! Funny to think about. And I am desperate for something funny to think about right now.

Forgot to say… thank you Michael for the best soapy site! While we are sad to see our stories go… this is the best place to come and find content and share with like minded people who love the genre and it all starts with you and your love and care of the genre and your fab site! Thanks again Michael!!! This has to be one of your biggest weeks for hits!

Michael… why don’t you do your favorite OLTL moments over the 40+ years you have been watching? That would be fun for all of us. Why doesn’t ABC ask the fans their favorite moments and make a DVD of them for us to have and remember? A DVD of more of the casts favorite moments and then the fans favorites would be great. I’d pay for that! Soapnet could put out the request and compile the list and they could run those episodes on Soapnet and then make some compilations of clips.

I just read that after all of the Damage Brian Frons Has done, He is Leaving abc Disney…This Month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

What he has done to Millions of Viewers, thousands of Actors, writers, etc with these shows..at a great Financial Loss to Those people..Many from AMC sold their homes, relocated to L.A..Then Cancelled The show.

He has destryed the Lives of many from OLTL..
I hope KARMA GETS HIM.

Do you have an address or emails where I could send a fan letter to Erika Slezak and Jerry Ver Dorn? As they’re no longer at ABC Studios I can’t send it there. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, Thanks much!

I have dreaded this day and want time to stand still. I don’t know how I’e made it through the last two weeks, watching the final shows. I want to see the end but yet I don’t because if I don’t it won’t happen, which of course is ludicrous. I feel so bad for the people who will lose their jobs, and wish I could tell each one how sorry I am. I will miss the show so much, wil miss the characters who I have grown to love: Vickie, Clint, Bo, especially, but all the others too. God bless them all and my b est wishes go out to these wonderful actors. Thank you for they years of enjoyment you have given us all.

In one of these comments, Carol Painter said that the perpetrator of this dastardly deed is leaving ABC soon. If that is true, I hope Brian Frons is unable to ever find another job and is forced to live under a bridge and eat roadkill!

Just remember “Slick”, Karma is a bitch!!!

Remember on Monday, don’t even turn you TV to ABC! I know some might get curious about how bad the new show will be, but the best way to really stick it to the network is not to watch at all. Let’s show ABC, just how big of a mistake they made by canceling OLTL!!!

yes,and thats the way to do it ,no more abc ,unless its general hospital.and there is no way anyone can be curious,The commercials said it all ,dumb dumb and dumber thats how the lineup on abc will be ,the only break from that cheap programing will be general hospital,well not now ,but in feb.and thats right around the corner .one life to live will continue in port charles.very happy victor is alive ,todd is not a killer.let this all play out on general hospital.dont watch abc anymore ,only general hospital.

On General Hospital, Elizabeth played Meg Baldwin who had a young son, Scott (Kin Shriner) from a previous relationship and who married Lee Baldwin (Peter Hansen).

In 1973, Dr Lesley Webber was assigned to her case. Meg became jealous of Lesley and began to think that she was trying to get to have sex with Lee. During an argument with Lee, Meg died of a stroke and soon after Lee adopted Scott.

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
