In a report outlining the tremendous turnaround daytime soap operas have experienced in recent months, following five years of consistent cancellations, which found numerous soaps ending their runs starting with "Passions" in 2008, "Guiding Light" in 2009, "As The World Turns" in 2010, "All My Children" in 2011 and "One Life to Live" in 2012, Deadline is reporting that CBS and ABC are about to forgo another year of fan heartbreak. According to the sites sources, the networks are expected to continue production of "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "General Hospital" for the foreseeable future. This news would follow in line with NBC's recent announcement that it had renewed "Days of our Lives" through the next television season (2013-2014).
Earlier today we reported on word that Prospect Park would not be airing online episodes of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" on TOLN/The OnLine Network, as had originally been expected, following today's announcement by the company that Hulu, the green internet hub owned by The Walt Disney Company, Comcast and News Corp., had acquired digital distribution rights to both series via Hulu's subscription and free-to-view platforms. In a blog posting on its website, Hulu clarified that news report.
