‘All My Children,’ ‘One Life To Live’ To Air on OWN

All My Children

Series made digital return April 29

The online revivals of “All My Children” and “One Life To Live” have found a smallscreen home in OWN.

OWN has acquired the first 40 episodes of each of the Online Network’s soaps and will air them over 10 weeks beginning July 15.

“All My Children” will air at 1 p.m. on weekdays, with “One Life” Airing at 3 p.m.

“These shows have proven to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan,” said OWN prexy Erik Logan.  “Many of our viewers across numerous platforms have expressed their passion for the soaps, so we are especially excited to air this limited engagement on OWN.”

The series, which ran for four decades on ABC before leaving the air in 2011, made their return digitally on April 29. Originally airing four days a week, their schedules were halved to two original episodes for each per week in May, with Prospect Park producers Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz saying that data indicated viewers were having trouble keeping up with the volume.

    Leave it to Oprah to set a wrong; right.
    I have a 42 year old son and have been
    watching these two shows since his birth.
    I was in disbelief when ABC cancelled these
    two shows. The other networks didn’t feel
    the need to cancel their soaps. There is
    still a huge audience of “baby boomers”
    that enjoy soaps and look forward to them
    on a daily basis. I don’t understand why it
    will only be for 10 weeks though. I hope the
    format will be exactly like it always was with
    a new episode every day.

    Thank you Oprah!!!
