In another show of support for the online rebirth of One Life to Live and All My Children, The Online Network and Hulu.com have created two fantastic billboards!

The billboards can be seen if you are in Los Angeles (and we drove by the All My Children one!),  and they are incredibly heartwarming and clever! When was the last time you saw a billboard advertising your favorite soap opera?

Yesterday, All My Children’s Lindsay Hartley tweeted upon seeing the AMC billboard “Wait… what????Retweet!!! @TOLN @allmychildren #amc ”  AMC’s Denyse Tontz (Miranda) also posted an image of the surprising Billboard to her Instagram,  “Spotted this little gem on the corner of Laurel and Sunset AMC 2.0”

For One Life to Live’s billboard slogan is: ‘Who Says You Only Have One Life to Live?”  And for All My Children the slogan is  “You Took My Children, I Want Them Back!”

One Life to Live and All My Children have their online premieres on April 29th on Hulu, HuluPlus and iTunes!

So soapers, what do you think of the marketing concept for the billboards? Do you like the tag lines/slogans?  Let us know!

I enjoy both shows and think Hulu and toln Are doing a great job. I do not know what Toln has to do with Hulu. Can you explain that one to me. I think wattching the shows on my computer is great and the way to go. If I miss a show I can come home and watch it. TV is for the old days and recording a show is also.

Such an awesome show of support!! I almost wish GH would get cancelled so PP could get them too!! More support from them before start up than in 50 years on ABC.

You have to believe the entire TV industry is going to be watching to see how this turns out, if this a success.. we are going to instantly see internet TV production companies popping up everywhere trying to produce content of their own. The future is in internet TV, and the sooner a internet TV venture is successful the quicker we’ll see the death of network TV.. let this one be it. How fitting that the revival of soaps on the internet spell the death of the very entity that said soaps were extinct.

Good Point AJ!

God, I hope they air on cable too. My mother and grandmother can’t watch through the internet. 🙁

Have them over to your house to watch….at least until they are able to work out a deal with a cable channel.

It should have said “You took my children, I want them ALL back!” LOL

I love these slogans, and the idea of bringing back the soaps. I just wish it was for As The World Turns and Guiding Light. 🙁

Agreed. I know it’s wishing thinking, but how about Another World and Ryan’s Hope too. Bringing back Dallas was a huge success. Let’s take a drive down to Bay City and open up Ryan’s Bar again. Until then, counting the days for the return of my favorite soap of all time — ONE LIFE TO LIVE!

I wonder if anyone outside the soap world audience would know what they mean…the amc one kinda sounds like a custody battle and OLTL kinda sounds somthing religous like there is an afterlife, im just saying! lol

jimh

Then again AMC sounds like PP battle with ABC over the OLTL characters while OLTLs sounds like PPs way of saying they brought back these two iconic shows back from the dead!

FABULOUS! If this is any indication of the writing and storylines, then we are in for a treat! Can’t wait. Easily ordered Hulu Plus yesterday. Can watch on my phone, iPad, computer, and TELEVISION!

Having worked in advertising for 20 years, I don’t love this effort. No web address, no photos, no logo… nothing. Unless you’re already in the know that AMC and OLTL are coming back, you wouldn’t know what these billboards are about. How many people are going to notice them and then go figure it out? There’s a lot riding on this effort to reanimate the shows, I would have done a more direct billboard even if it is more conventional.

That is the way to get people to the site to see what in hell is this sign about/curiousness ..
At bottom of sign it says …. TOLN and HuLu ..

It is just a click on your phone or tablet, to feed ones curiosity to check it out, what the sign is about, and once they are there, to watch, well…………………………………….!

What a waste of time. Let this idiocy end and get Todd, Starr, and McBain back on actual TV ASAP.

You sound like a disgruntled GH fan. Well we AMC and oltl fans deserve our shows too. You are not the only one who counts. And we are excited!

I think these web versions will have difficulty due to demographics of former viewers. Younger hulu users aren’t interested in soaps, my daughter laughed when I watched. TV soap viewership eroded greatly when anyone with a basic tv could watch. TV soap viewers were older and less affluent based on demographic info and I doubt they will watch in sufficient numbers in the restrictive online portal.

Derek

Yea right that’s why gossip girl, one tree hill, 90210, etc stood on so long because younger.viewers don’t like soaps. And guarantee you many of those viewers watch online.

VERY CLEVER! THANK YOU HULU, TOLN FOR BRINGING THESE BACK!

I think the AMC one should say, “They took all my children. I want them back!”

I love them, but maybe AMC should have read “YOU HAVE MY CHILDREN, I WANT ALL MY CHILDREN BACK.

Have any other OLTL & AMC fans noticed, like I have, how ABC is going out of their way to push & promote GH here lately? I haven’t ever seen so much attention being given to a Daytime soap opera in my entire soap watching life….LOL I know they’re celebrating the 50th Anniversary, but it seems a little excessive. Why couldn’t that have happened for AMC or OLTL when they were on the air?

Rapids

Young people will discern the two shows are former daytime soaps watched by their great grandmothers. They will not confuse all my children with gossip girls. Demographics were the downfall of daytime soaps, young people were not interested and did not watch. I say the shows, particularly all my children, have many challenges due to limited portals to watch the show. Many daytime viewers do not have high speed Internet, streaming devices or computers. I have all the technology but have mixed feelings and I watched all my children for roughly 35 years. The last ten years mostly bored me, plots and characters ran out of gas. Will I be interested in sorased teens? Doubt it. Still undecided if I want to start again.

will the soaps be repeated during the later afternoon hours or will i have to wait til they come to tv? from what i’m hearing they will be on at noon & im still at work then. help!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
