Brian Kerwin’s Last Airdate Set on ‘One Life’

Thursday, April 21, 2011 2:23 AM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — As we previously reported, Brian Kerwin (Charlie Banks) has been let go by "One Life to Live." However, despite the fact that his character's marriage to Viki (Erika Slezak) is all but over, don't look for the actor to exit Llanview for several more weeks as more drama lies ahead for Charlie. Even though Charlie was recently reunited with his old flame Echo Di Savoy (Kim Zimmer), that doesn't mean the lovebirds will be riding off into the sunset together. That's right, there's about to be some trouble brewing between the pair courtesy of Viki and Dorian (Robin Strasser). But how will Charlie react when he learns what Echo has been keeping from him?  Tune in to find out! According to Soap Opera Digest, Kerwin's final airdate is expected to be Wednesday, May 11. He joined the show in 2007 and was nominated for Daytime Emmy Awards for the...
In a rarity for soaps, CBS posted on its Twitter page today your first look at Genie Francis in her newly created role of Genevieve, who looks to be the next villainess on the networks "The Young and the Restless." The image was first posted on on-screen son Daniel Goddard's (Ethan 'Cane' Ashby) Facebook page. From looking at the image (posted at right), the actress' new character is surely nothing like her iconic character, Laura Spencer, from her time on "General Hospital, which is what she wanted when she spoke with Oprah Winfrey in February. "If there is a way to go forward with Laura and make her into what I’d like her to be now, then perhaps I would do it," said Francis. "I would like her to be funny and have a little bit of an agenda that might look a little bit vengeful, but it really...

Robin Strasser Reacts to Cancellation of ‘OLTL’

Tuesday, April 19, 2011 12:20 PM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Never at a loss for words, the "One Life to Live" grand dame takes to Twitter to speak out against the cancellation of the long-running ABC soap. Strasser, who for years has been remembered for her rather outspoken telephone hotline messages to fans, finally joined the popular social networking site last Friday, one day after ABC canceled both "OLTL" and sister soap "All My Children," in favor of new cooking and lifestyle programs "The Chew" and "The Revolution." After just four days on Twitter, she currently has nearly 4,500 followers. The veteran actress wasted no time in weighing in on ABC's decision, tweeting "Let's trade two iconic dramas for two untried cooker/realities? kill off hundreds of jobs in the process? delete protests? Diss-aster brew. Hanging in or hanging myself? All due respect: There is NO honor giving into some one else's bad program(ming). Respect/honor your...
After news broke earlier this evening that Hoover was pulling all of its advertising from the ABC Television Network on the heels of the networks decision to cancel "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," Soap Opera Network got word from a high ranking Disney official, speaking on condition of anonymity, that Hoover's decision would not only not change the networks mind about the cancellations, but that it would only hurt, not help, the soaps in their final months on the air from a financial perspective. According to the insider, ABC Daytime has been producing both soaps at a financial loss and the decision to bring on "The Chew" and "The Revolution" will allow ABC to bring in approximately 80% more revenue from the demise of each soap as it cost ABC between 30-40% less to produce a talk show than it would a soap opera.As we all...
People seem to think that boycotting ABC, sending soap to networks headquarters in New York and Los Angeles, etc will get ABC to change their minds about canceling the soaps. Unless you want the FBI on your butt, you will do no such thing. You watched enough soaps over the years to find a more constructive manner in dealing with this. Calling is a waste of time and energy as the network is deleting your messages and changing telephone #'s for their employees as fast as you hit a key stroke on your keyboard (for many, that isn't fast enough). Tuning out only gives you less time to tune in. If you find yourself seeking input from the 2-3 people that "boycotted" outside of "The Early Show" studios after "Guiding Light" and "As The World Turns" got canceled, you'll come across as much of a loon as you've been...
