TVLine Update on AMC & OLTL Rescue: "Some inaccuracies & press release due out soon"!

TVLine.com has been doing some digging after last night’s bombshell from the New York Post that has All My Children and One Life to Live being saved and moved online to continue their sagas by a three year old media firm, Prospect Park, founded by former Walt Disney Studios  president, Richard H.  Frank and talent management executive, Jeff Kwatinetz.  Here  is what TVLine had to say below after doing some investigative work on the confusing situation:

TVLine: “While a Prospect Park rep did not immediately get back to us and an ABC Daytime spokesperson declined to comment, a well-placed ABC source did tell us that the Post‘s reporting contains “inaccuracies.” The insider could not elaborate on the errors — Will only existing episodes be streamed? Are Lucci and her hefty paycheck in fact not part of the deal? — but soap fans shouldn’t be kept guessing for long. I’m hearing that a press release regarding the rumored “rescue” is due out soon.”

Did the Post jump the gun here?  On-Air On-Soaps is continuing to report on the situation throughout the day.   Stay tuned for more info on this developing story!

If Prospect Park picks up One Life To Live and All My Children, we (hundreds of millions of LOYAL viewers) will come immediately…. and as we have done for 40 plus years, in support of our beloved shows, we will bring our significant Sponsor Product buying dollars with us.

Yes, there are millions of soap viewers, but not online. I pray this isn’t true, the shows won’t make it. Not good enough, ABC/Disney.

Many of us are not able to get online coverage. I hope this
is wrong and someone picks up the soaps on tv.

I AGREE THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE WHO DONT HAVE A COMPUTER.BESIDES I DONT TRUST COMPUTER THEY ALWAYS GET VIRUS . AND THEY ONLY LAST A FEW YEARS THIS WOULD BE SO EXPESSIVE FOR US. I DO NOT LIKE THIS IDEA AT ALL..WE NEED A SOAP CHANNEL PERIOD .

Wouldn’t do me any good. Live in rural America, along with lots of soap fans, can not get DSL access. This means could not watch the shows. Will not stop fighting for the soaps to come to a regular channel. Please join coupon mail in campaign to help find a real home for the soaps go to sudz.tv

Where is the web address?

So instead of selling OLTL and AMC to Sony, they sell it to a former Disney lackey???

I only have DSL will I be able to pick up the soaps on Prospect Park, I will watch them if I can PLEASE let me know,ok?

‘Live with Kelly and Mark’ Scores Most-Watched Week of Syndicated Talk Shows in 2 Years; Delivers Strongest Week in Nearly 3 Years

In another case of soap alums doing great things, come news that former All My Children stars and real-life marrieds Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) are having a great ride together as on-screen co-hosts of the syndicated morning series, Live with Kelly and Mark.

New numbers were just released by ABC that share that during the week of January 15-19 2024: Live with Kelly and Mark hit series highs in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). Interestingly enough, former GH star, Rick Springfield (ex-Noah Drake) appeared on the show that week performing with friend and musician, Richard Marx.)

But there is more good news: Live with Kelly and Mark delivered the franchise’s strongest week in nearly 3 years in both Households and Total Viewers, as well as double-digit week-to-week increases in key demos over the last three weeks.

With 2.673 million Total Viewers, ‘Live’ delivered the most-watched week of any syndicated talk show in 2 years ( since Dr. Phil second week of January in 2022).

In even more solid gains for this ratings report: the talker stood as the week’s top  daytime talk show in Households (1.81 rating) and Total Viewers (2.673 million). ‘Live’ also ranked as the No. 1 entertainment talk show of the week across all key Nielsen measures, topping all daytime and late-night entertainment talk shows.

Overall the Live with Kelly and Mark is up 4%  from the the previous year averaging roughly 2.4M viewers across all of its episodes. ‘Live’ also stands as the season’s No. 1 entertainment talk show across all key Nielsen measures.

Consuleos arrived officially on the season on April 17th 2022 taking over for the departing Ryan Seacrest to co-host the show with Ripa. While many voiced concerns that the on-screen and off-screen coupling might make for lower ratings if they were not entertaining, just the opposite has happened, the series seems in a very healthy place; given the constant downturn in linear ratings and viewership in daytime TV.

Are you enjoying Kelly and Mark as co-hosts compared to Kelly’s other co-hosts through the years? Comment below.
