36 January 7th, 2012 Good Morning America pays tribute to One Life to Live this Monday!

One Life to Live fans, make sure not to miss this coming Monday’s January 9th episode of Good Morning America on ABC.  That is when GMA’s special correspondent and former star of All My Children, Cameron Mathison (Ryan) will host a very special segment as the show pays tribute to OLTL as the iconic show draws to an end and becomes part of television history, while the viewers at home get ready to watch the last five episodes as it wraps up its final week of airshows!

We are hoping they will look at the history, interview the actors in the current cast, and gives us a behind-the-scene glimpse of the final days of life in Llanview.  Whatever the case, make sure not to miss it!

    I feel the same ,and Im sure abc will insult us with there boring ,loud commercials of the chew and the revolution .I have no choice but to watch good morning america and the view ,( only to support one life to live) but abc will make out in the ratings ,And I have a problem with that .The view says there will be a big announcement on that day,Are they going to bring on those idiots from the chew ,and share a hamburger or maybe that apple and oranges doctor will give us advice on how to deal with the fact that abc canceled our soaps.Either way abc makes out and that makes me sick.

    I hate abc. Prospect park needs to send the soap to cable… but then again they were in on it with Frons… they just wanted the fans to shut up. This show NEVER should have been canned…. Someone feel free to tell ABC that OLTL trended 2 days in a row world wide. And also tell Disney the phrase Disney is pathetic trended too….

    This may help;
    Twitter’s Trending Topics algorithm identifies topics that are immediately popular, rather than topics that have been popular for a while or on a daily basis, to help people discover the “most breaking” news stories from across the world. We think that trending topics which capture the hottest emerging trends and topics of discussion on Twitter are the most interesting.

    This was not Fronz’ idea – this was all Ann Sweeney – new head of ABC at Disney. I’m thinking the new name of ABC should be the Already Been Canceled network. Such a shame because so many people worked so hard to bring this network up and now one person is taking it down.

    I did see that, pretty cool that they had so many pages and featured most of the actors and gave them a photo shoot.
    So sad that all the cancelled shows get the best publicity when they are canned.

    I’ve always known somehow that Fronz wasn’t behind this all by himself. He answers to somebody., so I AGREE with you. Ann should share som of the responsibility, OR all………….of it at this juncture bc she isn’t doing anything about it.
    JOIN US in sending bar’s of soap to the ABC studio’s in nyc. Abc can use them to clean up the mess they have made. Better stll the soap should be sent to Ann Sweeney, who is present and in a positon to change things around NOW. Let abc studio’s be BOMBARDED by soap arriving to the studio by the dozens from people ALL across the Utnited States and Canada. So get your soap (form the dollor store) and get it in the mail.

    All I can say is that I’m thankful that it’s Frons instead of Sweeney who made the decision to cancel the soaps. That woman wanted to cancel General Hospital along with the other two soaps.

    I’ve read that Frons successor, Vicki Dummer, is not better than the rest of them. Actually, she’s worst. Whereas Frons had somewhat of a background in soap operas (having, for example, appeared on the soap opera Santa Barbara in 1989), Dummer is all 100% about reality television and so-called “lifestyle” shows.

    the demise of daytime television ,bring back all the soaps,we want entertainment not cheap talk and food stuff ,shows like that are for idiots,thats why I wont be tuning in ,who hires someone who is the queen of reality shows?I would love to be a fly on a wall and find out the real reason abc got rid of frons,It cant be that he was the only one with the balls to kill all my children and one life to live.unless they wanted us to think that he is the reason the soaps are gone ,all of us head honchos at abc had no Idea what this guy was going to do , we will play stupid ,sorry abc no one is buying into that ,and I ll go further ,I know what your doing with the lets put the cast of one life to live on goodmorning america and the view we will sucker the fans for a few more hours of ratings , maybe you should it will be the last of you high ratings , you alienated alot of people,Is that vicki DUMMERS idea?She will fit in good at abc,with her cheezy cheep reality shows.

    Heather replied

    From my personal point of view, I think that Frons got into an argument with the management of ABC over the future of General Hospital. ABC wants General Hospital out of the picture while Frons wants it to stay on the air.

    Frons has always liked General Hospital. I don’t know what are his reasons for his love for GH. But long before the announcement was made that Frons would be leaving the company, I knew it all along that it would be impossible for Frons to cancel GH. Someone else would have to do it.

    I will dvr this and only watch the OLTL segment. I understand that the new Soap Opera Digest that’s out has only OLTL in it and nothing else. I haven’t seen it yet but i’m gonna go buy it at the store this week.
    I did see the People magazine with Erika Slezak on the cover (a small pic) and it has like 6 pages in it of OLTL, I was surprised to see that! The only thing I saw in Entertainment Weekly was the article about Lindsey back on the show. I hope the new one has an article about the show ending.

    Hey Blake, telll me something, did Soap Opera Digest devote the entire magazine to AMC when it went off? Let me know. And what did people magazine do in honor of AMC, or Entertainment Weekly.

    Reply

    Blake replied

    No AMC did not get all of that but they got at least one whole special magazine for themselves and got more news coverage.

    Why are you giving me attitude about AMC? I didn’t say anything about AMC. So back off.

    Hey Blake, telll me something, did Soap Opera Digest devote the entire magazine to AMC when it went off? Let me know. And what did people magazine do in honor of AMC, or Entertainment Weekly.) Where do you see ATTITUDE in my question? If you read very closely, I’m merely asking a question, and I ask pcolitely, “Let me know”. In contrast, you need to BACK OFF away from your OWN SELF. Your a DANGER to yourself IF YOU FIND a simple question to be Threatening. When I read your response, I first thought, “Oh, ok, he’s right, maybe AMC did get more coverage”. But then I thought. “this week isn’t over with yet”. And then I get to the end of your message, and out the BLUE, you got “BACK OFF” there, and screwed up the whole thing. You OWE me an apology. We are suppose to be working toward the same goal, part of the same movement, and here YOU ARE STARTING TROUBLE. If you dont want to be part of the movement, and be positive with the people involved in it, then you should not be apart of THIS SOCIAL MEDIUM FORMATE. I have been reading conversations from people on this site most of the day, and they haven’t agreed on many things, from the shows, their favorite character’s going to other shows, plots, etc. Even one guy my the name of Scott said he was glad AMC and OLTL were canceled since his CBS soaps were. He called GH boring. I read twhere 2 women, Heather and Barbara went back and forth with Scott over his opinion, BUT never did they get personal, or insult Scott. They just defended their positon, opposed to his. And here your negative behind, I ask you a question, (certainly it wasn’t wasn’t even a negative question, and You telling me I have attitude (behind a question) and to back off. You owe me an apology. If you can’t handle the maturity of this site, you shouldn’t get on. We are respectable adults on this site, fighting the same cause, not one another.

    Scott has nothing against AMC. It’s only OLTL that he hates.

    I do not understand how so many can give Frons the power to cancel the soaps..
    Frons never had the power to cancel the soaps, why give make him out to be what he was not/ a power head of ABC/D with the power..
    Blame whom is actually the head of the cancellations, and that would not be Frons.

    It is a terrible mistake to kill-off OLTL.. It is very strong and wanted by millions.
    I have a problem believing that in a few days OLTL will be dead, I still see it being revived.

    Hey, Thank you for explaining that trending thing. It’s just a new term, I gathered how U explained it, which helps decribe what’s going on on twitter. (It’s a TRENDY word too lol.) I hear it when they use it on the news and I’m not sure what it means, I dont twitter or Facebook. I only wanted to know bc it was posted that OLTL was ‘trending’ all over the world. I know OLTL is not known ALL OVER THE WORLD, so that is why I wanted to know and I suppose Barbara too. So Thank You, for myself and Barbara. And see below this post where I have found the OLTL song that someone on here requested. Make sure U STOP at the post office tomorrow and mail out your soap bar’s to the abc studio’s in nyc, to show your fustration. See how the exec’s and new shows feel about being BOMBARDED with soap coming in ALL across the UNITED STATES. Pass this along about the soap and HELP TO POST on this site and other sites. Thanks Again.

    Did AMC get this much Bra-hah when they were canceled? I know there was media attention, and I read stuff on abc.com, amd the like…. AMC, I read on this site Sunday, Jan, 9th got the Cover of People Magazine, and more media attention. What Im asking is, in your opionion do you think that AMC got the Fan-fare/ the Fall Out/ the Out Cry as OLTL?

    i When i foounf out that you could talk to celebs on the internet i was amazed and to be a fan of theirs and to say what i was thinking in the stories of the soaps. i felt like i was in heaven because i never was able to go see them in person but i felt like wow i am getting closer to them just by being able to watch them and comment and now it is going away and i just don’t like it. I mean ABC had Soapnet and ABC to show their shows how can that not be enough. i would go back to ABC to watch but they keep taking our shows away that i am afraid to see what they have on now. and i have been watching abc since Al Albert showcase . what the heck ABC what is going on here. I still love channel six and the weather and all the shows they had before now and taking the soaps off is a big gigantic mistake.
