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!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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!!!

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

So, who are you rooting for to win the gold at the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
