Soap Fans, Rejoice! All My Children And One Life To Live Will Continue To Live…On The Internet!

abc soaps will continue on the internet

Very exciting news for Soap fans!

Back in May, hardcore fans of All My Children and One Life to Live were NOT happy that their shows were being cancelled, and to express their anger, they wrote a letter to ABC's president of daytime Brian Frons, AND they went so far as to protest outside The Lincoln Center in NYC.

Looks like ABC was listening, because even though the shows may not continue on TV, they'll have a new home on the Internet.

According to a press release by ABC, both soap operas will continue on the web "as part of a multi-year licensing deal with upstart media firm Prospect Park."

We're very pleased to hear about this, and we hope they'll also make room for General Hospital if that soap goes off the air as well.

Nice move, ABC! You've def earned some points in our book for this one!

Will U watch these soap operas when they hit the web?

    yaaa to bad the majority of the people who watch it are old with no functioning computers.

    This is GREAT news for AMC and OLTL fans.

    However, ABC already passed on selling the rights to its competition. Frons and Daytime Head Marinelli didn't want to risk the embarrassment (and exposure of their own incompetence) if another network took the series and made them successful in the wake of Frons/Marinelli/Disney's failures.

    By selling to an alternative media source, Frons/Marinelli appease the fans (and may save their jobs — until the craptacular "Chew" and generic "lifestyle" shows crash and burn) and feed their own self-interest in avoiding comparisons and their own incompetence being highlighted.

    Okay, this is stupid.
    The majority of the fans watch on TV.
    They are older ladies, like my mom, who don't want to watch on a computer, or dono't have computers or don't have internet and aren't interested in all this technology.
    .
    It is stupid and it will fail and they will finally just end the series.
    .
    You know what? Good things come to an end. Let it go, soap fans! I used to watch the shows faithful in the 70s and 80s, in the heyday of Soap Operas. Those days are over. Let it go.

    That's awesome but didn't Susan Lucci already get a job at Desperate Housewives????



  5. 5

    I'm 21 and enjoy both these Soaps :-D I'm glad they will be online but I still wish they could of been put on Soap net for anyone who doesn't have a computer or have problems working with computers

    Question: Are the stories going to be the same? I prefer to watch it on TV. Mario that will cut into time spent kicking it with you! LOL! Oh, well can still catch up if the stories are current for the shows. Hope the keep the same cast.

    Why do you praise ABC??? They have been absolute morons and jerks about these soaps for years.



  8. 8

    I think what everyone is missing here is that these soaps will be licensed to show "REPEATS" on the web. It will not be new episodes.

    Re: Vertigozeroplex – Unfortunately Soap Net is going off the air in a few months. I'm just happy that AMC and OLTL will continue even if it is online. Not everyone over 40 watches tv. We catch programs online all the time.

    Re: redstang42
    They're making new episodes not running reruns. Prospect Parks is going to be going to the writers, producers, directors, actors to see who they can keep on the shows. There will be new shows.

    Re: sayswho
    ABC wanted out and they took it. This is going to come back and bite them big time. They don't care about the fans or the shows. I know alot of people don't agree but with more people watching things on the internet or other places, this could be the change soaps need to do to keep the genre alive. I'm almost 40 and been watching soaps since I was a little girl. Still tape 4 a day now and am so happy they're not going anywhere.

    Re: Axl4ever – AMEN!

    What's the dif betw watching on-line on ABC's site or the new one? More DVR room — since I don't watch/record any ABC shows EXCEPT AMC, OLTL and GH (all to make a point since I actually watch on-line).

    ABC fvcked the fans — and it's riGoddamneddiculous to think we're going to follow their ads and watch "The Chew" or other "lifestyle" talk show. I'll catch up on Y&R and DOOL, which I sued to watch in college. Alread stopped watching The View - only exception will be Kelly (Hayley Santos) and DH if La Lucci ends up there (or to continue to watch Tuc Watkins' antics).

    In any case, ’tis good news for the talent and crew, esp. the AMC'ers who moved 3000 miles to keep their jobs and the shows going.

    ABC needs to spew The Chew!!!
    Save One Life To Live on ABC or we will be watching days Of Our Lives or The Talk.
    We will never watch this rip off mess of cable shows that nobody watches.
    Fire the jerk who came up with this junk and put so many people out of work to save ABC a few bucks. Brain Froud I hope you rot in hell you cheap overpaid hack!!!!!
