Fast and furiously things are starting to take shape as the new platform gets set for launch this coming October with this just announced programming block that will kick things off during the fourth quarter of 2015!  From a brand new soap opera, to a brand new soap opera talk show and game show, to several hilarious and competitive reality series, to fashion and style programming, and more, takes aims at the soap opera audience and gives them a plethora of programs to watch each night.  ‘Sudsville’ creators Kelly and Craig inform that they’ve nicknamed fans of the new platform “Sudsies”.

AM Sudsville (11:30-12:00 AM every Monday, Wednesday and Friday) kicks off the week with a half-hour of celebrity interviews, questions from our viewers, and re-caps. Three fun hosts, lots to love.


Mondays are fun days on SudsvilleTV!

8:00 pm – Michael’s Amazing Soap Trivia Challenge debuts in December.  In this fast-paced half-hour trivia challenge three lucky contestants will face off on Michael’s front porch to win the title, $1000.00, and an on-set chicken dinner with Michael and his co-host. The winners of the 10 qualifying shows will advance to the Tournament of Champions and compete against each other for the Grand Prize of $10,000. Michael’s Amazing Soap Trivia Challenge is more than a game show, it’s also a story. Michael’s moved back to Sudsville with his new wife of 37 days, the enchanting Dilly, to live next door his parents, the eternally optimistic Tammy and the ever cranky Earl. Tammy, one of Sudsville esteemed triplets, thinks Michael is perfect. Earl’s got a different take and often drops by to correct anything his son might be doing wrong.

8:30 pm – Grandma’s Unleashed! Hosted by actor/Model Cody Blymire, Grandmas Unleashed!, is a cross between a reality show and a game show. Blymire takes three grandmas on fun, fast-paced adventures around New York City. Like we say in Sudsville, life begins at 70.

Tuesdays are for Beauty on SudsvilleTV 

8:00 pm – The Fashion Report – Our sweet hostess and her stylish sidekick will show fans how to make a favorite soap star’s style theirs. Fans will also learn how to I.D. their personal style, look like a million while spending a dime, and make an outfit work for every age.

A fabulous half hour where lucky women get to be Cinderella for the night and lucky fans get A list beauty tips!

Buckle up for Wild Wednesdays Sudsies!

8:00 pm – Wash Out starts the night with a blast. Contestants get a choice between answering a question (no cream puffs, these are all toughies) or to do a stunt (hilarious and hard). Whatever they choose either gets them closer to the cash prize – or washed out.

8:30 pm - Reenact! is a hilarious new show that follows former soap star Bradley Cain and his brother Benny Cain who along with their office mates launch a company to supply low cost reenactments to cable television’s true crime shows.

Starting in December Thursdays are for Schemers!

8:00pm – Year Rounders – Welcome to St. George, a once-upon-a-time New England fishing village that has become a summer playground for the wealthy. Year Rounders is a riveting drama with great twists, a spectacular ending, and favorite Daytime stars.

Fridays are for Dreamers!


8:00 pm – Actor/Waiter follows four supremely talented young actors around NYC, as they try to break into show business. Fans will get to know and root for these actors, as they try to balance work, auditions, relationships, and bills. This half hour gives a peek into a life we only think we understood.

8:30 pm – A Second Look at My Life – This show follows 10 empty nesters/divorcees who return to the work force late in life. Fans will cheer for these women, as they go with them on an intensely personal journey.

    maybe we will finally get to see classic One Life To Live re-ran! :) fingers crossed!


  2. Nancy (Save Thesoaps) says:

    Tell us more about Year Rounders, Will any of our AMC / OLTL actors be on?


  3. CJ says:

    I watch soaps in part because I despise most so-called reality TV. There seems to be awful lot if reality on this schedule. I hope that Year Rounders is successful, but I don’t see me hanging out in this town.


    Karen replied

    Gotta agree with you. Reality TV is really not what I want to watch there are plenty of other channels dishing that out and choose not to watch. I want to see soaps


    su0000 replied

    I have read that younger peoples like Reality TV..
    They can tune in and out and not be lost and they also like fast, fast paced, show me and then in 20mins over and out ..
    younger gen like different media than older folks, they grew up with fast paced internet programing and quick view reality stuff..
    hey, they like it.. lol
    I do not care for those stupid staged reality shows that are not even real reality , they are phony ..

  4. su0000 says:

    I want one network broadcast tv station that will run Dark Shadows in full, from black&white day one..
    And, AMC and OLTL..
    then I’d be a happy camper :)


    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Dark Shadows is my all time favorite soap…the first few months of the show is very slow but it sure picks up when Laura The Phoenix returns from the dead to claim her son David!…by the way Laura was married to David’s father Roger who is also Laura’s grandson…in 1897 Laura was married to Rogers grandfather Edward…Edward and Laura had a son named Jamison who grew up and become Rogers father…lol…campy twisted DS was cool and fun!!!!


    Joanne replied

    I have to agree…gotta say…I was hopeful about this, but judging from the shows..not what I thought it was going to be. Mabye it will change, and give us reruns of out soaps. Until then, I’ll pass.


  5. Rod says:

    This doesn’t seem soap opera related AT ALL seems like weird programming and MORE reality that we don’t need. Not seeming to original and not driving me to the computer to watch. Not a fan of web shows really but was willing to try, Since its based towards Soap Viewers but now NOT BOTHERING
    GOOD LUCK Suddville “But I’m Out”


  6. Lou Piikes says:

    The line-up looks good. My only gripe is that it doesn’t include more soaps than reality shows. Oh well, it is only the beginning . I will give the network a chance to add more programming.


  7. Mark says:

    What does most of this have to do with soaps? A style show? A fashion show? I think I speak for my fellow soap fans: WE WANT SOAPS!!


    Llanviewer717 replied

    I totally agree with you. We want to follow the development of interesting characters and see complex relationships and situations. We want to see interesting stories develop and play out to resolution. We want characters that grow and adapt to changing situations. We want something to invest in.


    davlestev1 replied

    I am kind of baffled at the programming being as it’s called sudsville with so called sudsies??? Not only that but the length of time in between launch and the only soap drama offering two months later. I would have thought the roll out would have included the new soap and not shows about make up artists and grammies and newbie actors running here to there. SMH..and a game show with a chicken dinner ending…is that every episode?? This is more like E or POP and they already have their niche audience. Unfortunately this may go the way of Prospect Park in a now you see us now you don’t before the soap even airs. I don’t see this working…LOL…but we’ll see. Or rather others can.


    CeeCee replied

    You bet, Mark. I hate reality shows….not true to life. Becoming famous over one’s grotesquely huge, monstrously out of place butt is ridiculous. That thing is supposed to be a thing of beauty?
    Then there are the plastic Hollywood housewives etc.
    WHERE ARE THE SOAPS!!!!??????


    Timmm replied

    And unfortunately CeeCee there seems to be no end to the Kardashian brand! Now theres a 17 year old female pimping herself out all over the internet and looks to be the next Kim! Uggg!

  8. Linda says:

    I may watch if there are some good dramas and not reality shows. I miss some of the soaps like OLTL and AMC as they had great actors. Most of these reality shows on tv have people who do not deserve the name of actor or actress.


  9. Johnny says:

    Please listen to us, we need All my Children back and One Life To Live. I am not giving up hope. I will not forgive ABC, for cancelling AMC and OLTL. I hope ABC chokes on it. Brian Frons needs to be punished, and I will call Sheila Carter to finished the sob LOL.


    Johnny replied

    I meant Sheila Carter to finish off the sob LOL.


    Llanviewer717 replied

    I totally agree Johnny. There is no reason in the world why OLTL and AMC are not in production and on the air now. If they were so concerned about production costs, there were several alternatives to cancellation. Like you, I will never forgive the alphabet network or the mouse company for this horrible betrayal.


  10. Mike says:

    Not one soap related show on the schedule.
    Nothing but garbage. Gong


  11. Blake says:

    What a disappointment! The only thing that looks interesting is the soap opera trivia with Michael O’Leary! And that’s not until December? Why is it on a Days of Our Lives schedule? Nothing else looks appealing, they have nothing to do with soaps.


  12. pat says:

    Not impressed. Just more reality programming. Just what we need. NOT!


  13. Timmm says:

    All networks or in this case, “Webworks” start out in their infancy with less than stellar programming. ESPN used to show softball games! I hear what people want and that used to be called “Soapnet.” Soapnet tried their hand at rerunning old soaps and talk shows. It sputtered out after a couple years and is gone now. Maybe this will turn out differently. Internet TV is now longer the future. It is now. One of the best shows on “TV” is on the internet and stars Jerry Seinfeld. He drives a classic car, picks up a comedian and they have coffee. Its great! Give this a chance and we’ll see what happens. As for classic soaps, it may cost too much to show them or they may be held up in some sort of legal mess.


  14. Brett says:

    I will watch the soap and the soap related trivia show, that’s it. I hope these shows will be available on demand.


  15. MH says:

    Wish they had more about the soaps that are no longer on the air (I’m still missing my ATWT). Sorry, but the lineup doesn’t sound too interesting to me at this point.



    Year Rounders and the platform is what is so exciting to me! It seems these shows and contests surrounding them will keep me coming back for more. Sometimes I can’t wait until the next episode of a show and it seems with this line up I will never get bored! So cool and I CANT WAIT FOR FALL!


  17. KateA says:

    The only thing that has possibilities for me is Year Rounders. I really do not like talk shows.


  18. Tim Key says:

    Sudsville had me hoping for more soaps. Why couldn’t they broadcast a “best of web series”. or a “Web Series preview show:. That would at least be soap related. .
    Seems there could be done relatively inexpensive. (the word is relatively) . Would love to see soap opera repeats. . I wonder how the Doctors is doing rating rise for Retro tv?
