( -- As of this writing, ratings for the week of May 2-6, 2011 have not been released to us by Nielsen Media Research. With that in mind, based on the latest information we have (week of April 25-29, 2011), "One Life to Live" has surpassed "General Hospital" as ABC's most watched daytime drama series for the second consecutive week.

( -- You may have heard that ABC Daytime's soap opera fans recently purchased an advertisement in The Hollywood Reporter and that said fans are planning to protest outside of Lincoln Center on Tuesday, May 17 as ABC unveils its new schedule for the 2011-2012 television season to press outlets and advertisers, but I bet you didn't know that said fans received a better gift than they probably ever expected from their efforts.Earlier tonight Soap Opera Network received an advanced copy of the magazine set to hit newsstands on Friday, May 13 with an issue date of Friday, May 20. The magazine, which features the cast of "Glee" on its cover, placed the now infamous soap fan paid advertisement on page 15 out of more than 60 pages.
