On last night’s OLTL Finale Special – After the Show with Michael Fairman, Michael announced the results of our final poll for One Life to Live.  And that was, “What Character You Will You Miss the Most?” And, as expected the majority voted for Victoria Lord Lord Riley Burke Buchanan Buchanan Carpenter Davidson Banks, played by Erika Slezak.  Viki received 29% of the votes!

The runner-up was Natalie Buchanan played by Melissa Archer, followed-by (in third), Victor Jr. played by Trevor St. John. Fourth place in the voting went to Tea played by Florencia Lozano, and fifth place went to Todd played by Roger Howarth.  Take note that there were only a few vote difference in these spots, and very close.

Most notable was also the comments from fans in the write-in option who informed us that it is impossible to choose since all the characters of Llanview will be missed the most! Ain’t that the truth!

Let us know what you think of the top five picks as voted on by the fans of On-Air On-Soaps and OLTL?

Really for me since Brandon Buddy left OLTL , the show lacked something really SPECIAL. The canvace was never the same without the cutest couple being together on daytime tv.
Thought it was so sad when he couldn’t return, and of course this second time after really showing interest.
I just wish ALL of them the best.

To me Vicki personified OLTL…when I thought of OLTL I thought of Vicki first. And Erika Slezak played her with poise and dignity for many years. What a wonderful actress playing a wonderful character. She and the show will be greatly missed!

To all My children and One Life To live…… You have been there for me in the good times and in the bad. I worked my jobs around your time slot and when I had no choice I had my Lunch along with all of us that loves you from the heart. All the while it was being recorded on my TV. We have long conversations in the Brake rooms and on the cashier lines. With our co workers and our customers. We cried we laughed and sometimes Shouted You Bastards! to the Villains and mostly when The News would brake for things like who’s who in Hollywood Now !!!! Woke to watch it at 3 :00 AM when it was to air what we missed . Thanks God ! I am insomniac! In between commercials washed the dishes . Vacuumed and dusted., prep dinner As well as Nursed All Of My Children. Learned to Dress to impress how to Decorate my House , Bought Crystal to Always Have a Wet Bar. Now Its a Coffee Bar. And Serve Coffee or Tea in a Fancy glass or your Best China …. Yup! I even Once owned a Sliver server set on top of my Coffee table for Years ! Now its replaced with an issue of People magazine Tribute to Soap Cast All My Children. Hands OFF! unless you are a TRUE SOAP FAN. I also learned to Never let guest go with out a nice something to enjoy,Learned to Wrap my gifts al la soap Styles . I Learned Many Fancy Words. And dainty ways of sitting and placing my napkin. I learned how to be Strong and Bold. Learned to Check my Breast and understand that Beauty is only in the eye of the beholder. Abstinence is best. And when you do. Make sure you don’t forget That if he Truly loves you he WILL take Care of You. But remember You are Nobody’s Fool….. As well as Its OK To Tell. I canceled many appointments Made sure when I had my surgery’s It was AFTER MY STORY’S! And Thanks God ! I had All My Baby’s Before Noon! so I can be up in time for All My Children ! And Yes I did Dress Fancy in my Hospital Bed ! Erica Dose ! Always Went to bed Fancy For My Husband. Just like Dorian dose. I made sure All My Girls Know to always look your Best for Your Man.

It is a great list. It was too hard to pick one. I would have liked to see Robin Strasser and Tuc Watkins on the list..

Viki will definitely be missed! I can only hope the Bucannons move to Port Charles too – why not, they fit in with the Quartermaines and afterall, Todd is going! Hoping they all do! Hope they take over Port Charles! I am going to miss them so much but very thankful we are at least getting a few of them – it’s better than nothing! OLTL is just my all time favorite Soap! So in love with OLTL and will never stop!

Well I will miss Viki and the rest of cast especially Natalie, Nora, Bo and Dorian. These are the few characters that stayed consistent which is what I loved. It feels really horrible and there is indeed a loss I feel today, which I wasn’t expecting as much or soon. I think our ES/Viki summed it up quite nicely so these stories /characters/actors have come to be a part of our everyday lives….. So yes there is a big void from losing so many people. My only hope is OLTL can still be saved. I only say that because with hope because I do believe of all other canceled soaps, this one left a impact on Network that soaps are still appreciated/love/wanted/desire. There was a large valuable fan viewership that was just tossed in the garbage. In this time with so many options yet we still tuned into ABC to view. How insulting but more importantly how foolish to cancel this show…. Thank you OLTL I didn’t like some of the storylines or the characters sometimes but I still hung in there with for I knew you would get back on track and you always did…….What a great ending…

I just can’t pick one character. I will miss Bo so very much. He was not always given a lot of action, but he has so much heart. I thought Robert S. Woods gave the best performance of anyone on the last show. And if it wasn’t really a performance, if it was all coming naturally from the heart, so much the better. Tuc Watkins’ David was a delight. I will miss the character Brody. Besides being very good looking, when he was mentally fit he was just a good guy. Really it’s the interactions between the characters that makes the show so wonderful. One character I miss very much is Evangeline. Such a shame they killed her instead of keeping her in a coma, so maybe if the show continues in some way she can come back. How can we have John go off without Nataie and his son. And that baby has got to be the cutest boy i’ve ever seen. I love Sean, such a warm, softie, but no pushover. I could go on and on.

Trevor I think you did Todd the best!! You had the moves, facial expressions and I just think you played it perfect. I know the long die hard fans watched Roger back and he’s okay but he is certainly no Trevor St. John. Thank you for all the years you played such a wonderful Todd

Marci Miller Final DAYS Episode Airs Today As She Shares Heartfelt Goodbye: “Thanks For The Sweet Ride, Abby”

In two years time, Marci Miller became a household name in the daytime arena as one of the brightest talents to grace the soap opera genre in a very long time.

Now today on Monday November 19th, viewers of Days of our Lives are watching her final episode as she wraps up her run as Abigail Deveraux on the NBC soap opera.

And what a run it was! Earning her a Daytime Emmy nomination for Lead Actress this year, and a possible nomination next year, Miller was heralded for her gut-wrenching performances in the DID storyline (Dissociative Identity Disorder) where she played Abby’s alters, Dr. Laura and Gabby.  Not to mention her complex love story with Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn).

On key episodes today, Miller’s Abby goes toe to toe with a vindictive Gabi (Camila Banus) who gloats how Abby ended up back in a sanitarium … thanks to her!

Miller made the decision to leave DAYS and pursue a career in feature film and primetime TV roles

In an Instagram post, Miller shared:”This is a picture of me 2 yrs ago, painting my nails (and a dear friend’s while I’m at it) for a screen test the next morning to play a woman named Abigail Deveraux Dimera on Days of Our Lives. Who would’ve thought?! This morning I sit in the same exact spot knowing that today, my last episode will air as this beloved character. I reflect, and am grateful. I am better for having been a part of it all. Knowing I’ve laid her in a pair of loving and capable hands does me good. Thanks for the sweet ride, Abby. My heart is full today. Xx #Days #Milly#Chabby”

So, send your well-wishes to Marci here as we give her a standing ovation for an incredible job well-done for her portrayal of Abby et al.  Will you miss Marci? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Intriguing casting news out of Port Charles on Sunday. The ABC daytime drama series has tapped former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert to play the character of  Yvonne,who is said to be a love interest for Mike (Max Gail) at the nursing home he is now in.

According to EW.com, Yvonne will end up having a connection to someone or someones on the canvas.

Hubert’s first episode is slated to air on December 7th.   Sitcom fans remember Janet from “Fresh Prince’ in scenes with Will Smith in the series in the role of Vivian Banks.

GH is not Janet’s first soap, either.  She appeared on One Life to Live as Evangeline Williamson’s (Renee Elise Goldsberry) and Layla Williamsom’s (Tika Sumpter) mother, Lisa.  The actress also appeared on All My Children as Alice Dawson.

In another twist, Hubert will reunite with Vernee Watson (Stella)om GH.  The two appeared together on “Fresh Prince”, where Watson played Will’s mother.

So does this mean that Yvonne and Stella are both going to be romantically interested in Mike Corbin?

What do you think of the casting news?  Interested to see this next leg of Mike’s story as he declines from Alzheimer’s, but may find love?  Comment below.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
