Well this bit of news while making us smirk with vindication, that finally more viewers are tuning in to One Life to Live during it’s recent fantastic episodes and storylines, comes with such bitter irony!For the week of April 4th- 8th, One Life moved into the number three spot among all the soaps. A position it has not held for quite some time! And yet, ABC while garnering some additional viewers and picking up steam still axed it from the line-up this past Thursday.
One Life added +56,000 viewers, while General Hospital fell below OLTL losing -115,000. Now All My Children on the other hand was at the bottom at number six as the lowest rated for the week losing another – 80,000 viewers.
So again, we ask, did Brian Frons and ABC have to cancel both soaps at one time? View the full ratings from Soap Opera Network after the jump!
