(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — After months of speculation as to whether or not he will be returning to “One Life to Live” before the wraps production on its TV run in November, Terrell Tilford (ex-Greg) responds to the rumors. But do his comments lead to more questions than answers?
Tilford, who played the contract role of Llanview’s Dr. Greg Evans from 2009-10, teased fans about a possible “OLTL” return in a video posted on his Facebook page back in August, which was recorded while he was on the set of the Lifetime drama series “The Protector.” Two months earlier he told Soaps.com that “I’d love to make a final appearance before it goes off, especially considering some of the stuff coming up story-wise with my little sister (Destiny Evans, played by Shenell Edmonds) and all that. We’re talking about making it happen, so we’ll see.”
Further adding to the speculation, Tilford posted the following message on his Facebook page on September 11, “To Everyone who has asked if I’m returning to ‘OLTL,’ thank you for enthusiasm of me and the return of Dr. Greg Evans. The only truthful answer I will give for now is ‘NO’ so that if it is ‘YES’ then it will hopefully be a welcoming surprise… Stay blessed, amazing & know that I miss my ‘OLTL’ family, fans & friends…”
Around the same time, Greg’s name was mentioned on screen when Destiny admitted to her big brother Shaun (Sean Ringgold) that she had went to visit Greg in Statesville Prison to get his medical opinion on Matthew’s (Eddie Alderson) condition.
“One Life to Live” will cease taping for the show’s television run in November before transitioning to online-only distribution with Prospect Park. The soap will air its final ABC episode on Friday, January 13, 2012.
UPDATE: Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at 2:33 PM ET
Since we originally went to press early this morning, a “General Hospital” representative has since stated that Butler’s first appearance on the soap will be “sometime later this fall…,” although not necessarily contradicting our earlier report of October 24.
Stay tuned to Soap Opera Network as more information on Butler’s “GH” role comes in.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – Marc Berman of TV Media Insights has been doing an excellent job in reporting the overnight ratings data for ABC’s new daytime talk show “The Chew,” which replaced soap opera “All My Children” in the 1:00 PM ET/12:00 PM PT timeslot on Monday, September 26. Since the talker debuted it has lost ground compared to “AMC’s” performance at the same point last year in television households. Now more than a week since its debut, Berman has revealed that the show is also losing ground in the all important Women 18-49 sales demographic compared to how “All My Children” had performed as well.
Per TV Media Insights, “The Chew” is averaging a a 0.9 rating/6 share among women 18-49 out of a 0.8/6 from the average ratings of its lead-in programming from the ABC affiliated stations (ie. syndicated fare such as “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” or local news) after six days on the air (September 26 through October 3, 2011). “All My Children” by comparison averaged a 1.1/7 in the female demo (using October 2010 averages), which was 18% better than how “Chew” is performing so far. In the less important Women 25-54 demographic, “Chew” is averaging a 1.1/7 out of a 1.2/8 from its local lead-in averages. “AMC” averaged a 1.5/9 (again using October 2010 averages). Based on these numbers “Chew” is down 8 percent from its local ABC programming lead-in and 27 percent from how “AMC” performed one year earlier.
Final first week ratings data, including total viewers, for “The Chew” won’t be available until Thursday.
