TV Guide Canada on One Life to Live on "Why to tune in to Llanview"

one-life-to-live-logoIn a new feature out today from TV Guide Canada’s, Nelson Branco takes a look at the Top 15 Reasons people should tune in to One Life to Live and Why it is the Best Soap You’re Not Watching. On-Air On-Soaps has been miffed on this whole situation as well. Why on earth is OLTL been basement dwelling in the ratings, when it is simply the Best Soap on the airwaves?  Here are a few excerpts from this excellent read, including some quotes from two-time Daytime Emmy Winner Judith Light ( Ex-Karen Wolek) and Crystal Chappell ( who played Maggie Carpenter on One Life)

“Head writer Ron Carlivati and executive producer Frank Valentini were granted loving custody of Nixon’s baby, and despite the economic and political obstacles in their way, these two angels nurtured this historic, precious legacy and evolved it. In fact, some critics would argue that One Life has never been this superior since its debut. Today, One Life is soaring in all aspects — except in the dog-eat-dog world of ratings. It’s sad because One Life is the closest thing soap fans have to a post-modern Santa Barbara, and many pundits hail it as the best daytime drama to ever air.

For Emmy winner Judith Light, who is now ironically toiling on One Life’s prime-time equivalent, Ugly Betty, she’s furious if ABC is even thinking of cancelling this iconic, enveloping soap opera. Our friend tells TVGuide.ca, “The show is very close to my heart. I wouldn’t want to live in a world without Llanview. It was the smart person’s soap — and still is. We need One Life … because it’s relevant.”

Even soaps’ most powerful and popular superstar, Crystal Chappell raves about all things Llanview! “One Life is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a fan since I was a girl. One Life will always have  a special place in my heart and life. Yes, my One Life character, Maggie, wasn’t a breakout hit, but I was still honoured to be a part of this iconic show. One Life rules! Start watching, people!”
