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 plan to watch each episode several times to generate ad revenue for TOLN and HULU.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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,… Read more »

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.
