On Friday, May 21, 1999, Susan Lucci won her first Daytime Emmy Award in any category after portraying the iconic Erica Kane for (at the time) nearly 30 years on ABC's "All My Children." On Tuesday, May 21, 2013, 14 years after winning in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, fans are still pondering whether the actress will reprise her role on the soap opera now that it's back in production via Prospect Park's The OnLine Network. In the meantime, tell us where you were on that special night when one of daytime television's biggest stars won the coveted award.

Former "One Life to Live" star Brittany Underwood (ex-Langston Wilde; ex-Loren Tate, “Hollywood Heights”) has announced on her YouTube Channel that on Tuesday, June 4 she will be releasing her debut EP. While no title has been announced at this time, the actress and singer released her debut music video directed by Robert Adamson (Noah Newman, "The Young and the Restless") on February 28, entitled "Flow." The song, which is expected to be part of Underwood's EP, features appearances by “General Hospital‘s” Kristen Alderson (Kiki Jerome) and Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) as well as " Heights" co-star from “Heights,”Ashley Holliday (Melissa Sanders).

With weekly episodes of "All My Children" now reduced to just two originals (down from the previously scheduled four), Prospect Park's The OnLine Network has released a revised breakdown schedule of episodes for the weeks of May 27 and June 3, 2013.

This Week on ABC's "General Hospital..."

In a video highlighting their YouTube Channel, TOLNSoaps, Prospect Park's The OnLine Network has the cast of "All My Children" talking about all the handy little features and noteworthy items.

Former “General Hospital” star Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky Spencer) may be busy with his current gig on ABC’s “Nashville,” but lucky for fans, he managed to find the time to hit the road with his band, Enation, and he may be coming to a town near you!

After the news that “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) passed away earlier this month, the long running sudser announced plans to air a tribute episode to honor the soap veteran’s 40 years on the show. Cast members, friends and family gathered on the set last week to film the special tribute (which is scheduled to air on Tuesday, May 28), and an official teaser trailer has been released!

The former Hollywood Hills home of Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos, “General Hospital”), which was once a pad possibly filled with soap scripts and dramatic scene rehearsals, is now being “pumped up” a little bit with a new resident: Foster the People frontman Mark Foster.

As we previously reported, “The Young and the Restless’” Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers) has decided to walk away from the role she began in 1994, news which has now been officially confirmed.

On Thursday, May 16, Prospect Park announced its plan to reduce the episode orders of both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" from the previously planned 168 original episodes per year (excluding Friday "MORE" shows) to just 110 episodes. Fans remain divided on whether the stated reasons behind the change from four original episodes to just two per week was in fact due to the binge viewing the company claimed in their press release or some bigger reason(s) we're all not privy to, however, the company does admit they can quickly change things should the demand catch up to the supply.

Cancelled primetime dramas "666 Park Avenue" and "Zero Hour" may no longer be in production but fans will get closer to a conclusion to their epic tales as Deadline is reporting that ABC plans to burn off the remaining episodes of both series starting in June. In its report, Deadline says that "Zero Hour" will begin airing its final episodes on Saturday, June 15 from 8:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT. Then, on Saturday, June 22, "Hour" will continue airing from 8:00 - 9:00 PM ET/PT as it leads into "666 Park Avenue," which begins airing from 9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT that night.
