185 June 25th, 2012 Frank Valentini On OLTL & AMC: “Maybe you haven’t seen the last of them. Keep your fingers crossed.”

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital’s executive producer and the former EP of the beloved One Life to Live, Frank Valentini spoke to the Chicago Tribune in a piece that was posted the night before the Daytime Emmys, which talked about all the One Life to Live and All My Children nominees reuniting and seeing each other for the first time in quite awhile at the telecast of the 39th Annual Daytime Emmys at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and broadcast on HLN.

Valentini stated in terms of moving on post-One Life, “I don’t think I’ve fully mourned the end of ‘One Life.’  I’m trying to prepare myself for seeing everyone again.  ”

Frank is hoping that the tributes given to the two shows on the telecast are not actually the final farewell for either program — and not just because One Life, which aired two weeks of episodes in January, may be eligible for awards next year.  The talented EP added, “Both shows will live on for years to come.  There’s still incredible equity in both of those brands.  Maybe you haven’t seen the last of them.  Keep your fingers crossed.”

Over the weekend online rumors began to ramp up that perhaps something is in the works to make  GH and OLTL more of hybrid, including posts and comments on different message boards that have said that GH now has some of One Life sets, and as we know, John and Tea see each other in Llanview this week.   But on the converse, that could also just be for this one story point.

Also of note in the Tribune piece, who also spoke to Erika Slezak (Viki, OLTL), they said that if S lezak wins, she plans on thanking the show’s many fans.  Valentini, who was a nominee as one of the show’s directors, said veteran director Larry Carpenter would deliver the speech if they’re victorious. “Larry’s a great guy.  He said if we win, it’ll give him a chance to say something nice about me which will make my mother very happy.”   Sadly, neither happened, and One Life to Live never got their moment to have someone so close to the show deliver a victorious and emotional speech Emmy winning speech for the million of fans who still mourn the loss of the show along with Valentini.

So what do you think of Valentini’s comments?  Let us know!

    Keith replied

    As a longtime OLTL fan, this “hybrid” is the worst of both shows because it disrespects their rich history and the fans. Why does Frank and other keep up this BS? Either be honest and tell us what’s going on or don’t say anything. All this you haven’t seen the last stuff is cruel. OLTL got dissed at the Emmys. The tribute was to Lucci who said AMC and Erica Kane 16 times and OLTL only twice. Some tribute. ;-(

    susan M. replied

    Ms. Lucci took over that whole segment on the emmy’s….She was so full of herself that night…Everyone should have gotten a fair turn…She seemed to be the head honcho that night…She really wanted to get noticed something awful…I t wasn’t fair about OLTL at all…That really pissed me off….It should have been50/50 chance to talk not 80/20..The 20 for OLTL (Viki)….That wasn’t done fairly……………….

What’s up????????????????? I think it is a whole bunch of nothing…………..

I would of liked to hear what Ms. Sleszak had to say if she had won…I look at the cast picture of OLTL everyday……And say to myself: I CAN”T BELIEVE my favorite soap OLTL is not on anymore !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They could have done more to put it on another cable station BUT, they gave up so quickly…The saying goes if you don’t succed at first, TRY, TRY, AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe nt. time that would be their last chance……Where was the tribute for OLTL & AMC ??????????? NADA TRIBUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Miss OLTL like “CRAZY!” Still watching you tube and soapnet classics. I thought OLTL was snubbed at the Emmy’s and in my opinion the best soap that was. Have been watching GH but if John McBain leaves his family, Natalie & Liam behind, I will leave GH behind. His character just would not of done that. Love Michael Easton tho’! Hoping for GH & OLTL to combine and go for 2 hrs.

    FYI Melissa Archer’s father is her agent and has forbid her to do anymore daytime. You cannot blame GH. I would love more than anything to get her on GH but I think her father wants her to stay away. I think they will recast her. Give the new people a chance because if we lose GH we have nothing but the crap ABC thinks we want to watch. Obviously they think we are stupid idiots.

    Tali Smith replied

    I have heard that rumor so many times – yet I’ve heard her say herself she is very open about coming to GH, but there has not been any discussions as of yet. Not blaming GH for anything, wish it all the luck in the world!

    I agree with your question. People come and go on the soaps all the time, sometimes they just don’t want to come back. It’s not the soaps fault, why threaten to leave?

    Terri replied

    I strongly agree with Tali and I saw an interview where MA was interested in coming to GH is she could? I think no one knows the real story do we. I just really miss my OLTL and especially mourn the unfinished Jolie story. I cried when I saw Erika on the Daytime Emmys she deserved to win.

    I truly hope that we have not heard the last of OLTL and AMC. I think OLTL was more of a reality drama than any of the others and ABC made a grave mistake when they took both shows off. I used to think ABC was #1 but not any more. ABC you can still redeam yourself. I also thought the “tribute” was more about AMC and Susan playing Erica Cane. OLTL got the shaft.

    Fingers crossed that we see lots more of Llanview and OLTL. Leave Todd and Starr as permanent GH cast members, move a few PC people over to Llanview and interweave the stories more often. Filming on the same set and sharing production costs would reduce the cost of these shows and more fully taking advantage of new media would increase their profitability. What fans are more loyal than OLTL’s – we’re still mourning the show more than six months after its final episode.

    I said this a while back – it would have been a much better idea rather than slash two good soaps to save money… if they have to cut the shows back to 45 minutes and do a lot more crossovers, and of cours

    As usual, his comments are very coy.

    I have heard that the Llanview sets are becoming a permanent fixture and that he is basically throwing the kitchen sink for September. September is supposed to be a HUGE month because that is when GH takes over OLTL’s old time slot in most markets and they NEED the viewers.

    I am forever hopeful these series will return in some form but I wonder if any entity has what it takes to revive AMC and OLTL in the style in which we are accustomed. The TV landscape and ways we tell stories are changing to such a large degree. Even the four stalwarts that remain disappoint on some fronts. Daytime and overnight are vital dayparts in our busy 24-hour-a-day culture. Su in their crazy gram to stay in the webs’ good graces. rely something can happen other than the repetitive new cycle, mindless babble, and contrived reality that is all too prevalent anymore.

    I love love love Frank Valentini. I believe it is not the end even though I never never thought my shows would come back. I will never watch ABC again except GH only because of the way they negate our feelings and their manipulations of the cancelled shows. I can hardly wait to see what he has in store.

  19. Barb Harnedy says:

    The most positive thing I can come up with from this, is perhaps Soapnet will stay around and will continue replaying old episodes of OLTL and/or All My Children as they do now in the early morning hours. I would love to see somebody like the HLN network pick them up and order new episodes…but I don’t know if that’s very likely or not. I feel this is just another Executive Producer trying to keep everybody happy which is impossible to do. Don’t know why he would start getting people’s hopes up once again only to disappoint them….best he just keep quiet unless he means business!!!!

    I would love to see a show before GH that was a half hour of AMC and a half hour of OLTL. But I’d certainly settle for whatever I can get. If it’s a hybrid, or half GH and half OLTL, bring it on! i’ll be watching!

Just another chance for the fans to be disappointed, yet again….

    Please don’t take this as an insult, but Frank Valentini, “Maybe” isn’t really something that inspires confidence in me. It kind of gives me the impression that someone, who can either be honest with us or deceitful, is choosing to drag his/her feet and leave me hanging by a thread. The SOS Movement has been driven by a lot more than keeping our fingers crossed and wishing for the best. We have openly tried to make the best out of an ugly situation since April ’11 and I, for one, would like to take some comfort and security by believing that I am not being lead astray by someone who said ‘Maybe you haven’t seen the last of them’ as opposed to ‘You have not seen the last of them’ or ‘It’s over’. Say what you mean, mean what you say, and give it to us straight without the sugar.

    I was so upset that OLTL was snubbed and didn’t win anything!!!! I personally didn’t like the Emmys because I felt that it was a joke! They had categories like the coutroom, culinary, and there was another category that had to do with food but i cant remember what it was, and internet viral video that wasn’t even necessary and hosts that should not have been apart of the show! I would have liked to have seen presenters from the soaps, not presenters that had nothing to do with daytime! Besides Anthony Geary’s wonderful speech and everything else GH won for! I just didn’t find it interesting! I am for the shows like AMC OLTL and GH becoming one show! Now that would be interesting like the did with the webisodes I think it was called!!!

Susan Lucci made sure everyone saw her on the t.v. when she went on her tippy toes when presenting an award & the winners came on stage…And you coudn’t see her…

    Oh, come on susan m. give Oscar the grouch a break, he was the least of our problems, His trash can could have come in handy to throw a lot of the idiots that showed up Incuding Ericka Kane, God How I hate that name now. I think we were finished when Ericka Kane showed up and she took over the camera and the microphone and we didn’t get to see our precious Ericka Slezak, And that music, that was bad, But at least HLN let us see the awards they got good ratings, so maybe they will put it on next year and they can have a suggestion box on how to put on a good emmy show. Yes I had to change my name, there are 2 barbara t’s here, I am the real one.

    Mary replied

    HLN didn’t have the time to change a sit down dinner and hand out awards show.It takes months.At least they jumped in and did what they could with what they had.ITs on Tvline.com there where legal issues over showing any clips of oltl and amc.So I assume ABC did it again.No I didn’t wanna hear about Erica Kane neither and I am an AMC fan.But put the blame on ABC for screwing us over again.

    OMG was I ever right about this man! He wants OLTL 2.0. I am so sick of this man and his unprofessional agenda! He was hire to be the leader of GH! I have watched GH for 42 yrs and I dont want to see OLTL 2.0. I watched OLTL about 20 yrs but Cartini ruined it for me. I liked old school OLTL not Cartini’s vision. He’s ruining GH for me now. I have watched very few episodes since Cartini took over with their agenda. Since there is no one overseeing him he can run rampant now. GH is steadily becoming just like Cartini’s OLTL-lame DID plots, slapstick ridiculous comedy, lame shirtless actors who cant act. And comic relief story lines disguised as serial drama. They have turned Heather into a cartoon. The show still belongs to the same 4 actors-Burton, Bernard, Monaco and Wright. Ugh! If they meld GH & OLTL I am truly done!
    GH will never be the captivating, quality show it was under Gloria Monty. SMH.

    Yes, and you know ,I was also thinking, What really aggrevates me sooooo much, is the Greed of Disney/ abc, and other networks, more than anything. When I look at so many of these Horriffic ,horrible programs that are on the air, and REMAIN on the air such as, BRIDEZILLAS, Jersey Shore, Houswives of this and that…It is disturbing. MEAN , ugly Horrible people, Screaming yelling cursing, and THIS is what People Want????? It is ver Disturbing to me. These are the lowest skankiest people, who are being made into T.V stars??? Sickening. All for more money in exec’s pockets? where is the moral compass for these greedy creeps?

    I always told my sons growing up to work hard, and good things will come, and you will accomplish them.. What makes me Mad, is that THESE are the people losing their homes, and struggling in Life..BUTt we give Drunken, crude , loud horrible people T>V shows, and Tons of money.

    We fire Writers, actors, entire crews, and hire Losers to drink and get drunk on beaches??????
    WTH ???
    Really bothers me very much.

    Dg, I am curious to know–what do you think is the difference between old school OLTL and Cartini’s vision?

    “The show still belongs to the same 4 actors-Burton, Bernard, Monaco and Wright. Ugh!” If you don’t like GH centered on these four, what would you prefer?

    “GH will never be the captivating, quality show it was under Gloria Monty.” What was GH like under GM compared to now?

    Just watching the Emmys made me nostalgic and brought tears to my eyes. I thought Ericka Slezak was robbed. If Anthony Geary could win again, then so could she! To overlook Robert Woods for another award to Mr. Geary, just made me sick. I am not saying Anthony Geary is not a good actor, but enough is enough! In my opinion OLTL was terribly overlooked….as a matter of fact, so was AMC. I would really like to see my shows come back…I watch GH to see the OLTL cast members who have migrated, but quite frankly, it just isn’t the same. I MISS ONE LIFE TO LIVE!!

    That’s what I always say, you don’t fix something that was never broken and abc made things worse for their network because it will never be the same as it was before they cancelled the soaps. The only way they can fix it is to get rid of that trash tv they replaced the soaps with and at least bring One life to live back.

    With regard to One Life To Live and All My Children, I agree wholeheartedly that their individual Brands are extremely viable so in view of that, I have to keep hoping that something wonderful will happen and that we will see their return

    Bit with regard to General Hospital, I am so very pleased and encouraged by the direction Frank Valentini has taken General Hospital in.

    I have been watching GH as well as One Life To Live since the first day each of those shows aired and before Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati showed up we all know that the ratings for General Hospital were not in a good place.

    Since Valentini and Carlivati came onto the scene, General Hospital’s ratings have risen considerably as General Hospital is wonderfully alive again with great fluid storylines that the incredible actors at GH play brilliantly.

    Since Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati took over the helm at GH, General Hospital hasn’t been this good since the heady days of Gloria Monty and I think that she would be pleased with what FV and RC have done with the show.

    I love the hybridization of General Hospital and One Life To Live and having read numerous interviews with the actors at GH they love it too.

    With what we are seeing on General Hospital now, moving forward I have nothing but hope for a bright and brilliant second 50 years for General Hospital.

    First I want to say that I “liked ” OLTL, was it the best show ever? only if you drank the oltl koolay. No matter how much OLTL fans want to re write the shows history as this masterpiece that got killed off wrongly in favor of a ‘lesser show” its not going to happen, ABC did the soap world wrong, that i’ll give you, but believe me if AMC OLTL l and GH were on CBS or NBC and they had to kill off two shows, those networks would of picked the same shows abc did to kill of. I bet if GH got cancelled by ABC, it would probably have a better chance getting picked up by another network, or cable outlet then its two sister shows, thats a given.

    Unless Frank has $4-5 million extra dollars per month in his pocket and the permission of ABC, forget it! Disney/ABC Television Group (DATG) couldn’t bother to give legal permission for clips or music from GH, OLTL, or AMC for the daytime emmys. Disney/ABC isn’t going to do a damn thing to promote soaps because it reminds everyone what a mistake they made cancelling OLTL.

    Disney/ABC would still like to rid itself of GH because it can make more money with less expensive programming. Maybe they will give Frank a little leeway at the start of the new season in September for ratings now that The Revolution is gone, but nobody cares about soaps at Disney/ABC besides Frank, except about how to get rid of them once and for all.

    A lot of people were (and still are) interested in keeping OLTL going – but until Prospect Park’s hold on the rights expire, it’s doubtful there’ll be any official announcements. Frank’s comments are very positive (i know some people left comments that they didn’t like the use of “maybe” – but given what Frank may know versus what he’s actually allowed to say, this is great reassuarance)

    I strongly appreciate that in doing the crossover with OLTL characters on GH that it keeps the characters, stories, and momentum “alive” until they can get a permenant home back. This is a great **temporary*** solution but a permanent hybrid would not be the answer. Each show has its own style, tone, characters, history, setting and when one mixes them together, the result is that everything great about the individual shows end up diluted and neither fan base is happy.

    However, keeping Llanview alive IN THE MEANTIME helps keep the characters visible which makes it easier to fully revive the show and im sure Frank is well aware of this.

    To take things a step further and acknowledge something that Frank himself most likely can’t come out and say, there’s a huge possibility that Frank’s recent comments are directly tied to the huge momentum to get Hulu partnered with bringing the shows back and EVERYONE that considers themselves part of the Save-Our-Soaps movement or wants OLTL back NEEDS to post a comment on AMC/OLTL thread here: http://www.hulu.com/discussions/6

    I agree with what you said about a hybrid not being the answer but a temporary solution… I know that OLTL fans don’t want to hear this…but GH is losing it’s identity. That’s not a good thing…especially to fans who love their GH as much as they loved their OLTL. As a fan of pre-mob domination GH, the show is virtually unrecognizable to me these days. Frank will throw a bone to fans like me with Mac/Felicia and Anna/Luke/ Tracy. But he is trying to please too many different fan bases and the result is frustrating and unsatisfying. With that said…I think he has a terribly hard job. He is fighting an uphill battle to save GH any way that that he can. I wish him luck. He’s gonna need it.

    Thank you much Hope! Cartini is doing a hatchet job on GH. And I really dont care how it upsets One Life fans. Those hacks need to go! Valentini is the most unprofessional producer I have seen at GH in the last 43 yrs!
    Before he even set foot in his office he offered Kristen Alderson ( Starr) a freakin’ job! She said she called him on the phone to congratulate him on his new position and bingo he says “You want a job?”
    Talk about nepotism. He and Carlavati are distorting and marginalizing GH history and trying their damndest to continue One Life stories. This is GH! Now Valentini is proposing a One Life/GH hybrid show and even considering adding AMC characters! This is a disaster waiting to happen!!!
    All three shows are mega-different with different identities!! He already hired One Life’s old music director so now the show sounds like One Life! He even removed GH’s signature building ( The LA county Med Center which has been the signature of GH for most of its history!!). He doesnt give a damn about GH. His agenda from day one was to continue One Life. I despise him for what he is doing. GH is as close to me as if I created the darn show myself. I watched it at 5 yrs old with my mother. He and Carlavati are hacks who will run this show into the ground and into cancellation! Am I heated enough?? I see red I tell you! That’s why I have turned off the show.

    GH shouldnt be a show about cartoon villains and DID any more than it should be The Sopranos. And Ill say this a million times if I have to…nothing has changed politically under Cartini. GH is still the Maurice Bernard, Steve Burton, Kelly Monaco show. This whole matter is pathetic. And once Cartini has tanked GH and they pull the plug this entire conversation will be a moot point.

    Carol you are completely selfish. If the tables were turned and GH got cancelled you wouldnt want Sonny Corinthos, Jason Morgan and Sam Mccoll coming to One Life and monopolizing screen time! I think you need to get real with yourself and admit the truth! Just like Cartini and all the other rabid One Lifers all you care about is getting One Life back at all costs! Just admit it and Ill respect you oh so much more!
    And to answer you’re last replay to me…you asked me to explain the difference between old school One Life and Cartini’s vision.
    I really can’t believe anyone who watched One Life in the 70s and 80s would ask that question. We are talking about two totally different story telling modes!!!!
    In the 70s One Life was a serious, issue driven, family based show.
    They had racism ( Carla Grey in the late 60s), pornography,( Marco blackmailing Viki with naked pics of Tina, housewife prostitution and sexual addiction ( Karen Wolek), wife beating ( Brad and Jenny Vernon).
    The stories were compelling and ripped from the headlines. And there wasnt this looney slap stick comedy. When people died they stayed dead ( Brian Kendall, Naomi Vernon, Lana McClain). Of course the directing style was a bit over the top but when I watched One Life back then I didnt feel like it was insulting my intelligence for the most part.
    Fast forward to Cartini- You have Jess, Tess, Bess and Wes, then you have the Bobby Ford attempting to romance a split personality and his lame brothers just strutting around half naked and wrestling in saunas like in a gay porn! BTW not a damn one of them could act!
    You also had some of the most ridiculous villains since the 60s batman series ( I watched the reruns as a child so I know). I mean Alison Perkins,Ursela and Cartini ruined Mitch Williams and grossly misused the talented actor Roscoe Born. By the end of his run he was a cartoon!! And whats worse Cartini resurrected Victor Lord Senior and made him into some kind of brain dead zombie! This was the show’s signature character from the beginning!!! How lame is that?
    They made a mockery out of the shows very first family!!! This wasnt serial drama it was a cartoon!!
    I could go on and on but the point is that Cartini’s vision of soaps is to make them, tongue in cheek parodies disguised as serial drama. Everything is campy, immature and light hearted. If you like that kind of thing then have at it. But I think its just plain lame.. I dont want to have to leave my intellect on the shelf to watch TV! I myself am a writer.
    Im going to school for TV writing and Ive studied serial drama in particular for most of my life. Ive written scripts, breakdown story and entire show treatments. I know how its done. Every writer and producer has a creative vision but I dont share Cartini’s . I was inspired by Agnes Nixon, Irna Phillips and in part by Gloria Monty. Cartini’s version of One Life was nothing like Agnes’s original premise!
    As for GH’ being too centered around Steve Burton, Maurice, Bernard and Laura wright. Consider this….When bryan frons took over at ABC daytime he had an agenda to wipe out all of GH history before Sonny came to PC.
    Under his reign the writers were only allowed to deal with history moving forward from Sonny for the most part. Under Fron’s direction Guza benched most of the GH vets and killed off the Quartermaines. For long time viewers like me that was pure hell! When MB first came on as Sonny I loved him but nearly 20 yrs of him was too much!
    I want to see the Q family revitalized in story. I want to see Stuart Damon( Alan) and Sean Kanaan ( AJ) rehired and their characters resurrected. I what to see the Qs back in front burner business stories like The newmans on Y+R.
    I want to see vets like John Lindstrom ( Kevin Collins) and Lynne Herring ( Lucy Coe) rehired and given story. I want to see Kin Shriner ( Scotty) return and pair with his old partner in crime Heather! That stupid baby switch story and the Franco is Jason’s twin garbage was stupid. Both Guza and Cartini have destroyed Heather’s history and she’s a cartoon now. In her original incarnation Heather had no interest or relationship to Luke. So this junk they are writing about her stalking Luke is just dumb! Again it’s good slapstick comedy, but its not serial drama.

    I want to see Jason out of the mob and with a completely new life and storyline-either a doctor, a secret agent or a Q business magnate. I want Jasam ended for good and Jason to have a new love interest. I want Sam written out for good. The character has run its course, time to move on. I also want Sonny Corinthos off the canvas for good!! He came in 1993 I believe and its time him shove off and the show turn the page and move on!
    It time for GH to get back to its core history with its core families-The Hardys, The Webbers, The Quartermaines and The baldwins. There are new generation characters from all these families just waiting to be written back in. Audrey Hardy has a biracial grandson ( Tommy Hardy Jr) that could be written in. Scotty has serena who should be college age now. The Late Rick Webber has a son Rick Jr by Ginny Blake he could be written back in as a hot young intern. The Qs also need new younger blood. How about bringing back Dillion Q . There are a million different directions GH could go in and move on from the same old junk that Cartini is doing now. I write a fan fiction dedicated to GH and these are some of the ideas I am exploring. I could write Gh a million times better than Cartini!! SMH.

    I have to say, that in the same vein, If GH was cancelled, and you were never ever going to have it back again, and 6 months later, they showed up on another soap as THEMSELVES, I think yOU would be just as happy as I.

    Secondly, I would love to have the Quartermaines ,the Baldwins ETC..,… ALL back…no problem here!

    I don’t read as much into all of the storylines as you, I don’t get that Deep into it. I don’t . I just don’t. Never have.

    I watch these soaps for one reason, ENTERTAINMENT! LEAVE MY BRAIN AT THE DOOR ENTERTAINMENT! Period. Nothing more, nothing less.

    It’s fun, it makes me smile, Laugh. It also makes me curious as to WHAT’S NEXT?? Just plain Fun!! It is a blast to watch.

    If I wanted to feel bad, be serious, be depressed, I’d watch The news . No thanks.!

    Those are things to get upset about.

    It’s just a T.V show…and we all are dealing with the loss of those.

    And if you think that I am not aware that GH is going away at some point..you are mistaken. ABC/Disney is nothing more than a bunch of arrogant greedy shmucks…so…I know the ending to this story.

    Anne Sweeny is still going strong at ABC. And I admire your intelligence for surmising that this was not just Fron’s idea. Anne Sweeny and Bob Eiger ( Disney Chairman) think soaps are out dated and too expensive to produce.
    Anne’s original agenda was to cancel all 3 shows at once. But Frons said that AMC and One Life should be the first to go because they’re ratings were lower than GH.
    Despite the fact that for it’s last 6 months on the air One Life topped off at over 3 million viewers, for most of the last decade GH out performed it and AMC in the ratings.
    Fans are really fooling themselves these days thinking that GH is safe. All of the insiders say ABC is just biding there time looking for a suitable replacement for GH so they can get rid of it. Bob Eiger holds the purse strings and he has said in no uncertain terms that he believes that serial programming is not cost effective and times have changed.
    If they can find a replacement show that is cheap to produce and can perform well ratings wise, GH is going to get the ax. I think Cartini ( Frank Valentini & Ron Carlavati) are taking some major risks with GH’s future with their agenda to blend One Life and GH. But to some degree its all a moot point. Unless the can raise GH’s ratings considerably I mean at least to 3 million of more GH will remain under the gun any way. In the final analysis this isnt about ratings, it’s about production costs.

Riki Lake, Katy Curik and others will not last 40 years nor will they make the money the soaps have made for ABC. Sure they will get numbers, but Katie Curik and Riki Lake combined, just aren’t going to have a fan base like ABC soap opera’s. Look at The View,The Chew and The Revolution. The Revolution is already canceled. (after 6 months) when Barbra Walters leaves The View, so won’t half the viewers. It takes time to get established That’s why we love the Soaps they are established and have a loyal following. If Gh is cancelled around September 10,2012 goodby ABC i will have no reason to watch your silly and mindless programming. That includes sports.
    ABC Gambled right now they are still in the game but September 2012 will be pivotal for ABC Daytime!

    I am praying that more OLTL cast members will xfer over to Port Charles….as the GH ratings continue to soar…hopefully TPTB @ ABC will finally realize what a mistake they made to cancel the show and totally combine the 2 shows paving the way for a future spin-off….OLTL the next Capter….kind of like from the 70′s like AW spun off Somerset and Texas….as far as AMC isf ABC would sell the rights to CBS I can see more of this cast kind of merging into Y&R….already Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams, Melissa Claire Egan….and the actors who played Jonathon Lavery and Maggie are on Y&R….also Peter Bergman, Amelia Heinle and I know some more that I have left out are all alums of AMC. I guess all we can do is hope and pray and keep our fingers crossed that FV knows more than he is saying….for now!!!

    Given today’s announcement by ABC that GH is moving to the 100pm time slot, don’t think that they’re incorporating OLTL into the show. That’s just gossip, “not based on fact” but not responsible information, just “someone’s wishes”. The fact that 2 main characters, well 3 have migrated to GH is due to their storyline, Starr Manning, and that snake Todd Manning. People get over it OLTL is over the online deal stuff from last year is over and never going to happen. I would not watch it online anyway, poor quality and not like live from the network. The pundits who said that the Revolution was poor television were right!!!!!! Thank goodness its over. Daytime drama, unfortunately has become the stepchild because of “Reality Television” which has become the new soaps of tv, but they cost less than a third of the cost of a network soap, and they have a ton of bad acting being done by “real people”. The daytime soaps don’t stand a chance of surviving in this new arena.

    I know that the hope was that crossing some characters over it would keep Llandview alive to possibly fight another day. As long as soe characters live on there is always hope, I think it will b harder to resurect AMC but not immpossible. OLTL story still cont. on so they could pick things up where they leave. th Quote Garth Brooks “…As long as one heart still holds on then HOPE is never really gone…” Dallas is back after how many Yrs? :)

    Carol dear I’ve watched soaps since I was a mere tyke in 1969. I watched the character of Heather since she was originated by Cher’s sister Georgina LaPierre (sp), lol. You cant educate me on her. And I also watched Port Charles from day one and I know all about the roles that Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco played.
    And I watched OLTL since the 70s shortly after the role of Viki was recast with Erika Slezak. She was working with Lee Patterson as Joe Riley when I first started watching that show. And I know all about the convoluted story of Todd Manning and Victor Lord. That was another completely ridiculous implausible concoction of Cartini. BTW Cartini is an acronym of the Executive Producer’s name Frank Valentini and the head writer’s name- Ron Carlavati meshed together. Acronyms like that are common in cyberspeak. Please dont think you’ve given me any new information because you havent. I know the history of OLTL and GH far better than Cartini, lol.
    I’ve watched over 15 soaps for the last 4 decades. I know of what I’m speaking. And give up you wont change my opinion of the hatchet job these guys have done on GH. I dont like it and never will. I have quit actively watching GH again much like I did last yr with Guza and Phelps. I DVR it and Ff through looking for something appealing and I usually find nothing. Over the last month I usually erase the DVR after the first few scenes in boredom and disinterest. I love the majority of the cast of actors and I cherish the history of the show. But I Cartini’s method of soap story telling is not my cup of tea. If you like it have a ball. But it leaves me quite cold and Ive chosen to tune it out until they change. I wont hold my breath. We are all entitled to our opinions. You are not required to agree. So lets agree to disagree and you have a good day. Peace.

    Absolutely! Oh, and I get the Cartini thing now! LOL! Ok..funny!

    You may be interested to know, that Ron Carlivati also watched these shows OLTL, and GH as A child growing up..He too knows and loves all of the Characters from those days as well……I think that’s why he wants to try and bring people, and the show back before it was turned into the ” Sonny and Jason Mob/Let’s glorify murderers” program..just guessing..but I do think he wants to bring back some drama and fun stories that aren’t Mob related..
    You and I both like the soaps…. but prefer different types of story telling styles I guess..
    Ya know, it’s funny, because no matter who is at the helm, writing…It goes Up and down for me…sometimes storylines are boring…and I take a break…but what kills me is that ,they always seem to get GREAT when I take a vacation, Them I’m forced to try and sneak peaks in Hotels! It’s ussually when someone comes back from the dead..and no one knows..!
    Can’t miss that. I am hoping that They find a way to have Trevor St John come over, I want everyone to know he is alive, and that Todd (Roger H) didn’t kill him..

    It’s nice to know that you have watched as long as I have. Great to hear.
    And there are millions that have also…and continue.
    I hope someone brings the shows back..
    Have a great day dg

They had really good stories then…Bobbi’s daughters heart went to MAXI…That was a sad scene when she died…
    I’m Glad That CARTINI, are there as a great team…Love them…!

    Dani replied

    When you add more OLTL people into GH you take away parts of GH. we have to Remember that General Hospital is not One Life to Live and its not set in Llanview. Sam lost her baby which will be her second time so Tea could go on thinking that Todd saved her son. Todd just took over kates office and got rid of Crimson without consulting her. And everytime you turn around there is a reference to OLTL and there characters. This is GH not OLTL. the more One Life characters you bring to GH the more GH characters you have to fire or let go. They really need to bring back OLTL. I will admit i do like having starr todd and john on the show but sometimes when i turn on GH i’m not sure if its OLTL I’m watching and if were in Llanview instead of Port Charles. General Hospital has been on for 49 years. die hard GHer’s want to see Luke and Laura Frisco and Felica and Jason and Sam. Not Todd and Blair. I love OLTL but not when it takes over my favorite show. they really need to bring it back!

I’m watching GH & I love it but most of the cast have changed since I watched every day I’m having to learn them again. I would not watch anything else but OLTL if that would bring OLTL back.

You’re doing a terrific job with GH (along with Ron). But, while I’m grateful to be able to see some of my beloved OLTL actors, a hybrid GH-OLTL (even with an infusion of AMC) is not what we are looking for. We want all three soaps on the air – away from the #$%^&*(){ who took them from us in the first place. Oh, and, if I have my say, you will be the EP of all three and Ron would be the Head Writer.

    I read that abc had to pay to do a tribute and they didnt want to spend the money so thats why AMC and OLTL didnt get a better tribute. And i see so many fans saying they will pay to see these soaps and since abc is so hard up you think they would use that to there advantage. But its not just about the money. there have been emails and letters leaked saying they didnt like the soaps and they needed to be GONE! And as far as prospect parks goes that was all a set up. They knew PP didnt have the funds to showcase AMC and OLTL so thats why they gave them to them. But PP ended up signing a contract stating that if they couldn’t afford to keep these shows running that the rights would go back to abc. i think i even saw something somewhere where it said that PP was owned by Disney. I don’t know if this is true or not but if it is it would make a whole lot of since. And when I look for information about them I can’t even find there websiite. It’s all just so fishy. I really do hope Hulu can make some head way with abc and get our soaps back. but if they wont give them to Anges whos to say they will give them to Hulu? But either way i’m not giving up hope for my shows!

    I have never stopped hopeing that they will bring One Life to Live back and keep General Hospital on. As for a Hybred, I don’t really like the idea. I would rather have both shows back the way they were before. Letting ABC get away with what they have done by accepting a combined show seems like selling out. And what about All My Children? Are we supposed to forget that show ever happened? I cannot get over the feeling that this is just another of ABC’s tricks to woo back the boycotters because their network has gone into the tank since they have tried to eliminate ALL the soap operas. If we cave and accept this “combined show,” what’s to prevent ABC from dropping the combined show in favor of some other “Reality” show at a later date?

    One Life and AMC are gone and they are gone for good. ABC made a business decision to cancel them. Destroying GH’s history by trying to blend the three shows is a horrible idea that will only eventually lead to GH’s cancellation as well.
    ABC is just waiting for a proper replacement and a reason to ax GH any way. Anne Sweeny and Bob Eiger have not love lost for soaps.
    If One Life and AMC fans want these shows back their only hope is to convince ABC to sell the rights to some one else, if anyone else is interested. As a long time viewer I wont stay silent while Cartini destroys a classic, iconic show while he attempts to resurrect two others that are no more. Its unprofessional, its selfish and misguided. That is all. Good day.

    I don’t agree it was a “Business’ decision, in the way You mean…or in the way decisions should be made, regaurding profits. It was pure greed Period, and I do Blame ABC disney 200%.

    Here is the number one Problem with This country today, imo, News, Entertainment , healthcare, Everything, ….. have one thing in Common……..Greed have become the number one Priority For everyone. News isn’t the news, Healthcare isn’t about saving lives, entertainment is now showing every murder possible they can Glorify for ratings , ALL FOR MONEY.

    Well written programs are tossed because they can show drunks on a beach! (Jersey shore) example.

    People with health insurance Die everyday, because it makes more money for ins. co, to deny people medical procedures to save lives,

    Television is filled with Crap shows, because it makes more money for the BOB Eigers of the world.

    How much money is ever enough for those greedy losers?

    The same people that spend THOUSANDS at their theme parks, are the same people who watch these programs. they just don’t care. It’s all about the Top making extreme amounts of money, at the expense of the employees, and their families. GREED.

    Fire everyone if those at the top can put more millions in their bank accts. Period.

    That’s the problem with our country today. NO ONE cares about the other person.
    All bout GREED. Not business.

    Soaps are SILLY. We aren’t talking “GONE WITH THE WIND”, we are talking about Soaps here. Silly stories, ridiculous seneriois, etc…
    They always have been, always will be,

    Except OLTL was able to poke fun at itself, and allow the viewer in on the FUN.

    At what point has a soap ever been NOT RIDICULOUS? And the writers also manage through all of the fun story lines, to intertwine, serious Social issues, Cancer, HIV, Gay…etc…as well….

    dg replied

    No offense Carol but I think people characterize this as greed just because they dont like the decision. “Well written programs” as you consider them are a moot point if they dont gain enough viewership to justify the expense it costs networks to produce them.
    In the case of soaps it cost networks millions of dollars to produce these shows. Im sry but as viewers that money is not coming out of our pockets. And we dont have to answer to a board of directors and stock holders who expect us to protect their investments.
    Viewers always complain when any show gets cancelled. But the problem is that viewers just want what they want on TV. The dont think about the cost to produce TV. TV is a business!! If a program doesnt get the viewership to justify the network expense it gets cancelled. Plain and simple. In the case of daytime dramas viewership has declined. Twenty short years ago daytime serials had around 8 t million viewers. Now they struggle for 3. And production cost are way more expensive now with HD TV.
    You can call it greed all day long, but I dont blame the networks for trying to save money. When a business loses money they go out of business. I dont think 3 million viewers justifies the reported 50 million dollar a year budget that these show reportedly costed!
    As fans and viewers the shows are priceless to us. But Im sry when I think like a business man I can’t blame ABC or any network for trying to survive. I am not a fan of the majority of reality programming, but again when thinking as a business person I dont blame the networks for going that route. Reality and talk shows are much cheaper to produce and the younger generation loves them. Like it or not TV advertising is about the younger demographic.
    So again no matter how you characterize it based on your bias its still a business decision. You only look at it negatively because you dont like it.
    The average soap viewer is way out of touch with the realities of business and with the tastes of the current generation. In order for a network to remain solvent they must stay current with the times. Yesterday is gone.

    Carol Painter replied

    A few short years ago, people didn’t have DVR’s.They do now. They now can choose to watch these programs on their own time.

    They may not watch when they are aired, but they do watch.

    I don’t for one second believe that viewership is down at all. As a matter of fact, , Not only do I think Millions more watch then you choose to believe, but I also believe that viewer ship would have continued through generations as it always has, for 20 ,30, 40 , plus years.

    They don’t care how many watch. They only , care how much it costs them to Produce, compared to so called reality garbage. (That I will agree w/you on).

    Let’s be real. OLTL AMC, GH, Had PLENTY of sponsers. TOP , High Paying sponsers. LOT’s of money rolling in, and they were always under budget, IT Didn’t matter. The Top exec’s could make billions more ,by replacing them with the likes of Snooky, etc.
    You know it, and I know it.

    They had options. They could have had the soaps on 3 days a week, instead of 5 for example. 2 days, perhaps ? ???

    (When I think of all of the classic programs that never would have seen the light of day due to poor ratings in the beginning,, over the past 40 years…it’s sickening.. but many made it through…Thank Goodness (but that’s another conversation, for another time) .

    When I look at how good shows that are now successful, such as GREY’s ANATOMY, and how we are lucky to see 2 new shows a month!!, (instead of one a week, every week.).it makes me mad. It’s always the viewr that gets the short end of the stick. GREED.

    I can’t count how many times I’ve planned my day around seeing grey’s anatomy, for example, and find out that IT ISN’T ON! After waiting 4 monthes for the new season to begin, we see 2 new shows…and another week without it being on..

    Happens every year now. GREED.

    But hey, if I ever want to see some sleazy Low life getting arrested, on drugs, hancuffed by police. Passed out, slurring words, or beating his nieghbors….I can always count on some horriffic sleazy program like COPS.

    Sickening what is happening to Television.

    More and more HOUSEWIFE shows, with shallow, horrible females, screaming yelling punching people. Great. just what the world and the YOUNGER people of today need. (NOT)

    And…. If I were raising children today…I wouldn’t have a Television in my home.

    There comes a point, where we have to get back to having some sort of moral responsiblity in our leadership. People in the news used to have ethics, codes. No more.

    People in Television , used to have standards. no more.

    We are raising an entire generation of DESENSITIZED human beings..who see murders, 24/7 on their T.V sets..never ending. It’s like breathing. And they are USED to it. And we wonder why kids are killing kids? I Don’t.
    Children Learn what they Live.

    Someone needs to be responsible. And the direction that Television shows are going, imo..is not a good one at all.

    I’m all for profit…But you’ll never convince me that The richest Americans at the Top, ..in most corp. are GREEDY, self serving #@%&^ . Not all…but most.
    Including ABC/ DISNEY…IMHO.
