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!
