Every time I see these new promos, I get emotional and pumped up at the same time. Jennifer Pepperman “grand slam” comment is on the money because for me, this is a beautiful grand slam that these soaps are back. Of course, the icing on the cake for me is my girl, Tea “F-fantastic:)” Delgado is keeping it realz:). Thank u Agnes Nixon, Prospect Park, show crews, actors, fans, and everyone involved in breathing new life into these shows and last, but certainly not least is thank u Mr. Fairman:-) for all that u do for the soap community to include keeping me as a fan informed:-).

I love Florencia (Tea) as well. I just love how Flo makes you forget she is acting. I only wish I could have seen the clip before it was taken down. I am surprised they didn`t re-edit it and re-post it 🙁

I can’t find the newest video (first day of school) on the oltl page it just has the 3 previous videos. AMC has theirs up I downloaded that one in case they shared it but that is only AMC and I don’t care about that one. Did they take it down for some reason. I really want to see Tea tearing into Mathew

I hate iTunes..
It was the most evasive program I ever had in my PC and I took it out and freed up a huge amount of storage space getting rid of the bandwidth thief..
dumb thing was in my drivers etc too..
And it is a nightmare to navigate,, confusing.
I go to Amazon for my movies, download music etc..
One clean click and the download is done and music mine 🙂

I know some people will be forced to use iTunes to watch the 2 soaps, but HuLu is 100 times better and one click.
I will stay with HuLu:)

So far, I agree with you. Just signed up with iTunes today. The customer service person I spoke with had no information about OLTL or AMC. He didn’t seem to have heard of either and certainly had no information about them being available on iTunes. What he did tell me was episodes of TV shows cost $2-$3 per episode or a bulk rate of $26 per series season. He said we would have to wait until the shows air to learn the actual price of these shows. If this is true, and I’m not sure it is since this guy had no information about OLTL or AMC, Hulu seems like a better source.

It’s looking like .99 cents per episode on iTunes.

If you’re looking at more than 8 shows a month, Hulu plus is cheaper

It’s not listed on iTunes. Apparently there is rumor it was pulled. I watched the preview video and when it ended the list of videos showed up with the newest one. I had watched it earlier so I’m not sure if that is why it popped back up that way.

Oh, PP pulled the OLTL video because they were careless and might have made a confirmation they wished to avoid. We missed it. I hope someone can post it for us.

I saw the video yesterday morning when it first came out. PP pulled the video a few hours later because in it someone put a scene in a hospital and in the background in a far off doorway was Trevor St John(Victor Lord Jr). I guess his being on OLTL was supposed to be a guarded secret but SOMEONE boobed up big time.

not the real Todd Manning – his twin Victor Lord Jr. The real Todd is played by Roger. But love them both. Since both showed up I like Todd with Blair and Victor with Tea cuz they are really good chemistry together> It goes to show all for actors are great because no matter which combo they are currently in they are all good.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”
