126 July 17th, 2013 Get Your Old Soap Block Back With A Twist! – Are You Tuning In To OWN in the Afternoon?

This Monday marked the arrival of All My Children and One Life to Live to Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network!  The revival of the iconic shows debuted the first three episodes of their original online return on Hulu on Monday and the action has picked up from there, where the first 40 episodes of each show, will be shown in Oprah’ declared, “Summer Fling with the Soaps!”

While some viewers of the new AMC and OLTL may be confused by all the repeats of episodes running concurrently or the next day on OWN,  On-Air On-Soaps wanted to break this down for a minute, and when we looked at it, this really gives long time fans of the old ABC Daytime programming block a chance to see all their favorite soaps in relatively the same line-up that they were accustomed to up until September of 2011, when All My Children sadly left the airwaves, followed by One Life to Live in January 2012, but with a small channel change tweak, and a a show time switched around!

So now in the summer of 2013, you can watch All My Children at 1PMEST/PST on OWN, then head over to ABC and watch General Hospital at 2PMEST, and then go back to OWN to watch One Life to Live at 3PMEST/PST!  

Now we ask you, have you be checking out OLTL and AMC on OWN this week?  Do you think you will now watch all three of your all-time favorite ABC originated soaps in this new format?   Let us know your thoughts as we saw many comments that fans wanted AMC and OLTL back on television and in the afternoon, where they belonged!

    I will continue to watch both on OWN and HULU. I am at work at 1pm but I have gone back to my old routine of DVR my AMC and watching it as soon as i get home. But i will still watch first thing monday mornings on HULU to get my full hour of AMC! I want my AMC to be around for many more years so i will support both mediums.

    DVR’ing doesn’t count as a view.. so what’s the point of recording it?

    Reply

    clh replied

    Actually it does now and has counted for the last year, if the recording is watched within 72 hours.

    Rose50 replied

    In the Nielson Ratings it does…up to a week of programing.

    Christy replied

    as far as I’ve always known, the dvr recording is counted if it’s watched with 24 hrs. but if you record several days and binge watch on the weekend, it doesn’t get counted.

    now if you use a dvd or vhs recording and you’re using cable then they will count you… if you use over the air thru digital tuner, it is not counted.

    I’ve been using the later for years, so haven’t stopped watching, but haven’t been counted since 2008, however now that OLTL is on hulu and itunes, I’m counted again – and I even watch GH on hulu now too, so get counted for that too.

    Alina Ross replied

    It is counted., in 3 ways:
    Live Program Viewing (Live)
    Nielsen measures Live viewing both at the national level and at the local level. Though when it comes to national reporting (pretty much everything you see on our site) it is almost never reported. In fact, we do not use it at all other than for the purposes of counting the total number of people who watched on a DVR

    Live Plus Same Day DVR Program Viewing (Live+SD)
    By far, the most commonly reported Nielsen metric for national viewing. This is a combination of Live program viewing (see above) plus any DVR viewing that happens up until 3am the morning after the program airs. Our overnight reports, any daily finals and all weekly numbers reported are all Live+SD

    Live Plus Seven DVR Program Viewing (Live+7)
    This is live program viewing plus a week’s worth of program viewing on DVR. The same day DVR viewing is already included in this number (in other words, you can’t take total DVR viewing for the week and add it to the Live+SD numbers or you will be double counting the same day portion,

    AJ replied

    I’m not saying DVR doesn’t count, I don’t know because I’m not an expert, but DVR was given as one of the reasons viewership was down for the soaps on network TV. If DVR is in fact counted, then why was that given as a reason?

    Yes I am watching on OWN to.We need a network for these cast members to remain.They are working for low pay for hopes of a network.No matter if she turned them down the first time.The cast and PP need this to work.Backing my soaps no matter what network they are on.ABC gets paid by PP and Hulu for these soaps.Rather they get a network and ABC stop getting double pay for these soaps.They cancelled them so done with ABC excepted GH.

    If you wait until Aug to watch on Hulu, you are going to be behind. NEW episodes are still posted on Hulu every Monday. OWN is showing reruns but that has nothing to do with Hulu.

    I have been watching AMC/OLTL on Hulu and OWN. Even though I have seem the episodes airing on OWN already, I am DVR’ing and watching Daily. And I am right there on Mondays for all new episodes on HULUPLUS on my t.v. Wherever the shows are, I am there!!

  7. Michael Smith says:

    Admittedly, I was a bit confused at first. I thought the OWN was airing three “new” episodes per day. Of course, the math would not hold up with that lineup (forty episodes would have been aired in just a couple of weeks). Also, I never saw the first episode of OLTL. It seems it started airing with episode two.

    That is a minor quibble; I am just thrilled to have the shows back in my living room—where they belong!

    Reply

    Christy replied

    if you want the first episode, you can buy it for 99 cents on itunes… or any other episode of the online version, and I think hulu.com has all the new episodes

    Michael Smith replied

    Thanks, I did see the episode the first day it aired online; I just wondered if they aired it on OWN. If they did I just missed it with my DVR. I have not seen anyone else saying that they skipped the first episode.

    Annie replied

    They aired the first 3 episodes on Monday July 15. And I believe they reaired episode one on Friday July 19. After that the new episode airs Mon – Th at 3PM ET for OLTL.

    I watch on Hulu plus but am also recording them on OWN so maybe they will be picked up after the summer for those who only want to watch on cable, for whatever the reason. To show my support I have also staryted to record “The Have’s and Have Nots” on OWN.

    I think showing the soaps during early day hours is putting them back to a problem that helped kill them..
    People are not home during the day to spend 3 hrs in front of the tv as they were 30yrs ago to watch daytime soaps..

    The elderly/retired, disabled, mothers getting assistant are home during the day all others work..
    Out of say 2 million a high percent are working during the day and unable to watch..
    That is why daytime tv is mainly very low cost talk and cooking shows, because there is few home to watch tv during the daytime.
    Just once, when PP had the chance, they should have explored airing the soaps during the evening on OWN .

    I don’t get OWN and I’m surely not going to Upgrade my already too expensive Cable package to get it – I currently pay monthly for HULU PLUS and that’s enough, and HULU PLUS has way too many commercial breaks.
    But I am happy for those who are able to now watch the show and I support anything that allows the iconic soaps ALL MY CHILDREN and One Life to Live to continue.
    Any way you slice it, ABC-TV really really made a big mistake in letting these shows
    go. They should have just trimmed each show down to a half hour and ran them back to back.

    If you are going to pay, get the multipass on iTunes. 20 episodes for 9.99 and commercial free. Then you hook an HDMI cable to your laptop and your TV and watch on the flat screen.

    I might be the only one that would like have soaps air in the evening.
    Days are very busy.. and to be able to be in front of the TV from 12pm to 3:30pm doesn’t work..
    I believe that would work for retired people or people who are home during day, but for all others not convenient and no time to daytime watch ..
    DVR is ok, but ideal, and not all have the ability to DVR..
    DVRing is to watch at night so why not just run the soaps at night ..

    We got rid of cable after our provider dropped SoapNet and currently we use Hulu Plus to watch AMC and OLTL and we DVR GH. I watch my shows while I’m on the treadmill on an iPad (which was a gift that really came in handy). I love watching my stories this way!

    If you have HuluPlus and a Roku, BluRay or gaming system you can watch on your TV anytime, or you can hook up a computer/laptop to your TV with a HDMI cable. I’ve been watching AMC on my TV since April streaming through my Wii.

However, i hope those who have not discovered the shows online will find out about them now– and that oprah will have to pay big bucks to help PP/ TOLN.

    It is all in PP benefit to have the soaps on OWN, and PP are the winners on this more so than OWN ..

    OWN’s rating may increase during the 3 hours however it will increase for PP 10 fold.
    PP is gaining more than OWN..
    and so far it just for set weeks this summer ..

    Thanking Oprah is the same thing as if somebody punched you in the face and then your nose started to bleed, and they handed you a towel.

    Thank Oprah? She’s not doing the soap fans a favor.. we are doing HER the favor! I doubt OWN was the only channel wanting the repeats (Lifetime, Oxygen, TVGuide). The soaps are a HIT on the internet.. they really don’t have to show the repeats to stay a success.

    I sure didn’t hear off any other networks wanting to pick them up. No one stepped up to the plate when ABC decided to
    Lose some viewers to stupid shows like CHEW????? Uck.

    AJ replied

    Lynda,

    That’s incorrect. There were networks and channels interested in BUYING AMC and OLTL from ABC, but they refused! ABC is only LEASING PP/TOLN the soaps on a 10-yr basis.

    Oprah didn’t offer to help, only thing she did was talk down to the soap fans and tell us all how the genre was dead and that there was no money to be made. Which is funny, because Oprah’s CHANNEL, not a network(more than one) is bleeding money.. so she’s turning to the soaps to bring in viewers.. which will make MONEY.

    OH THE IRONY!!!

    I have been reading all comments regarding the Summer Fling Oprah has taken on on her network. I am a longtime AMC & OLTL fan and has watched every episode on huluplus. I personally am ecstatic that Oprah has come to her senses in picking these soaps up. I know we all can’t forget that Oprah did not want any part of saving these soaps in the past and since Tyler Perry’s The Haves and Have Nots Soap is doing well on her channel. There is the revived Dallas with good ratings so that is telling her that soaps are not completely dead. She sees that online is doing well so why not jump on this ship. Let’s be realistic fans, her network was struggling for awhile with all the wrong programming and now she has some good stuff on OWN now so she figures let me get a piece of the action by bringing the soaps to my network briefly to see how it goes. She may never admit this but we all know that this is the truth. It is all about the benjamins and it is not personal its business. This could make or break her. So come on put what she said in the past and move forward and support the soaps on her network so she realizes this is a moneymaker and bring back all episodes to traditional TV.

    Rhonda R replied

    All of the episodes that have been posted through Monday, July 15th are available on Hulu. I don’t watch OLTL, but I just checked Hulu and this weeks episodes for OLTL are #39 and #40 and the More show is #41. (If you hover over the thumbnail of the episode, it will tell you the date it was posted). Both AMC and OLTL are on scheduled filming hiatus but they have shows ready to post through Sept, the hiatus does not affect the posting of episodes. AMC resumes filming on Aug 12th and OLTL will return 5 weeks later.

    Of course, she had to wait for someone to actually produce some shows for her to rerun first.

    No to OWN!
    So far, the network has been an embarrassment with the majority of it’s programming. I’ll continue watching on Hulu+.

    If the numbers are good, she will work something out. It’s why we all need to watch even though we have seen them before.

    I watch on HuluPlus and have since April 29th. I don’t watch on OWN because I’ve already seen the episodes, and I can watch any previous episode at any time on Hulu.
    I’m happy that OWN came to an agreement with PP/TOLN to be able to purchase the right to show reruns of THEIR shows for 10 weeks and I hope that the agreement can be extended, for those that either do not have a computer/internet or didn’t realize the shows had been brought back to life.
    However, the thanks for the shows being back goes to PP/TOLN who put their money on the line, bought the rights to the shows from ABC, hired actors, writers, productions crews, rented studio space and actually produced these shows. I am loving the new shows and hope that more eyes on the show from OWN helps PP/TOLN continue to produce these shows for years to come.

    I hope Natalie & Cutter aren’t a permanet thing… Never really cared for Cutter . He seems sneaky and dishonest…Not on the up & up..He;s out for what he can get & not sincere at all. He’s the wolf in sheeps clothing…I hope Natalie sees right threw him and meets someone else…

    I still want to know how he got out of jail in Kentucky. And no one mentions Jessica at all! And FYI to the writers, Natalie did not grow up in a trailer park in Atlantic City.

    Yes I will watch as have watched all three soaps for 35 years. OWN should have picked up the soaps where ABC left off but hey they are on board now. So good move for the network, shows, and fans!!
