    Because, I guess, ya know, Sawyer has to get his every little wish in a certain thread. Or maybe I am thinking of someone else, I dunno, whatever.


    :wow: NEWS.


    http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/201...ark-raised-25-million-in-abry-deal#more-19733


    So, how much did Prospect Park raise from that Abry Deal? Only $25 Million it seems. Wonder if they got money elsewhere. Once the soaps go into production and start airing, they get a cut out of the ads on Hulu and I guess, a cut of the sales on iTunes.

    In this thread, you can talk about any daytime soap you want. From canceled ones like Passions and As the World Turns to the current four on tv. Days of our Lives, General Hospital, Bold and the Beautiful, and Young and the Restless. As well as returning ones One Life to Live and All My Children, which launch online on Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes, and theonlinenetwork site this April.

    So what's the deal with the status of Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson on General Hospital?

    I thought I had read that due to Prospect Park being petty about owning their characters, they had to stop airing on GH on Feb. 8th -- but they're still on.
    :huh::huh:

    (Thanks for creating this thread, ETM!)

    February 8th was their last day at the General Hospital studio for the time being. Since soaps are filmed weeks in advance anything that they had filmed prior to the February 8th deadline could last until sometime in March or possibly April.

    Ah ha! Thanks - the report I read was vague.

    I've read that those three will be back . . . but no mention yet as to how the show will transition them to entirely new characters. (Except Easton can continue as Caleb Morley, I guess)(not digging the whole Vampire thing :whatever:)

    I get most (really all) of my info from the General Hospital imdb board and Daytime Confidential and Soap Opera Network, but...


    Last I read OLTL and AMC will work with GH to make sure their universe is more shared from now on. Howarth and Anderson are only suppose to film 4 weeks for OLTL, then be back on GH, likely as their OLTL characters. Easton will be shared by OLTL and GH.


    The Lorenzo/Thomas storyline will finish on OLTL, even though it started on GH. Howarth, Anderson, Easton last air first or second week of March.

    This week's ratings.

    Also, disregard EVERY THING i just said about Easton, Howarth, and Anderson lol. Guess only Howarth will do OLTL and GH?

    Is that Susan Lucci narrating? Interesting. Is she expected back?

    I follow Bobbie Eakes on Twitter and she hasn't mentioned anything about going back for this . . . but she was extremely excited over a year ago when the possibility of this retool first came up

    Yes, Lucci is suppose to do one episode of the new AMC.

    Howarth is suppose to film for 4 weeks. There are rumors out there on GHH (General Hospital Happenings) I read in a thread on the GH imdb board about his character.

    There was a episode this week of GH...and Todd was in a cell in the PCPD with Rafe. Talking to McBain, whose in a cell across from them. Todd Manning says 'Oh Snap' in such a way, that, it further cements Howarth as my fav actor on GH.

    She's a terrific actress -- uncannily natural, no matter how bad the dialogue may be that they give her!

    I bet she'll do well wherever she goes. And she's already got a couple of Emmy statues on her mantle! :yay:

    Yeah, she has a chance for brighter places.

    Last week's soap ratings are in, and everybody jumped up.

    http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2013/03/ratings-all-soaps-up-big-in-total-viewers

    1. Y&R 4,726,000 (+126,000/+142,000)
    2. B&B 3,625,000 (+105,000/+541,000)
    3. GH 2,885,000 (+243,000/+531,000)
    4. DAYS 2,734,000 (+288,000/+245,000)

    Dat 30 minute B&B is up so much. Don't watch it, but proud of it. I watch GH and Y&R. When OLTL and AMC hit online, I will watch them as well.

    Most of the One Life To Live returning cast members, doesn't look like there are very many to even put on a full show. Thankfully my fave Melissa Archer is returning.:hrt: They recast the Destiny character with a more attractive girl to go along with the more attractive Matthew recast.

    Some good news. No bad news here FYI.

    http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/201...ntracts-for-shenaz-treasury-and-roger-howarth

    And...April 29th 2013 (Monday) is the online debut on Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes.

    http://www.deadline.com/2013/03/the...ate-for-all-my-children-and-one-life-to-live/

    No mention of 'The Online Network' Site. I think The Online Network is the digital division of Prospect Park is all now. Since the soaps air on Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes. Which is FREE, pay, pay in that order.

    No big deal is right -- wasn't SoapNet supposed to have been shuttered over a year ago?? I'm surprised they're still around.

    On what happend with Luke and Helena...

    Err, one rumor is with Disney wanting to move GH to PP in 2014, thus making it a internet soap, they want the feud to end. But I thought Helena was suppose to last til end of summer.

    Also, SOAPNet is slowly being put out. It's a issue with contracts. Where I live in Eastern NC, we have Disney Jr AND SOAPNet. I honestly can't recall when the last of the contracts are up with various providers. 2013-2015 time frame, I think.

    Llanview to get a shot of JWOWW

    by Dan J Kroll

    Posted Thursday, March 28, 2013 5:30:20 PM


    Reality star Jenni "JWOWW" Farley has landed a role on the relaunch of One Life to Live. JWOWW will appear in scenes at one of the show's newest sets, the Shelter nightclub.

    MTV personality Jenni "JWOWW" Farley has landed a recurring role on One Life to Live.


    Farley will play the role of Nikki -- not to be confused with one of Viki's alters -- a barmaid at Llanview's new nightclub, Shelter. In a case of fiction mirroring reality, it's said that Shelter's owner, Blair Cramer, has to keep a close eye on Nikki at all times.


    While on set, JWOWW got some acting tips from Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth), but things quickly got out of control. After Kelly showed JWOWW how to do a "pretend" soap slap, JWOWW tried to demonstrate what she'd learned and slapped Kelly for real!


    In related news, Australian DJs Nervo taped a special appearance at the Shelter nightclub earlier in the week. For more on that, click here.


    In addition to starring on MTV's Jersey Shore, JWOWW is currently appearing in the second season of the spinoff Snooki & JWOWW. Outside of her television success, Farley has written a book, launched a clothing line, and started her own web site.


    Prospect Park has not yet announced when JWOWW's first appearance will air. The relaunched One Life to Live debuts online on April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus, and iTunes.

    And the episodes will be available for FREE viewing on HULU.

    Thanks for the link - I love this techspeak:

    " the company will leverage Internet distribution to disintermediate traditional entertainment distribution stakeholders." :huh:
