Day-To-Day Ratings – HH/Total Viewers
As previously reported, with “All My Children” wrapping production in less than a week, actress Debbi Morgan (Dr. Angela Hubbard) will be heading to CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” Although her “Y&R” role has not been revealed, a CBS representative has confirmed to Soap Opera Network that Morgan will begin taping scenes beginning Thursday, September 1, which is just one day after her contract with the ABC Television Network is set to expire.
Morgan returned to to the soap that made her famous (“AMC”) back in January 2008 after a near twenty-year absence. She debuted in the role of Dr. Hubbard in 1982, but departed in 1990. In between her “AMC” stints, the actress appeared on the ABC Daytime dramas “Loving,” “The City” and “Port Charles” from 1993 to 1998. She portrayed Dr. Hubbard on both “Loving” and “The City.”
Alongside Daytime Emmy Award Winner Darnell Williams, Morgan created daytime’s first African American super-couple in the form of Jesse and Angie Hubbard. Morgan’s daytime career has also extended outside of ABC Daytime. From 1990 to 1991, Morgan moved on to NBC’s “Generations” and then to CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” from October 2006 to June 2007. The two-time Image Award winner has also had a successful career outside of daytime. She has appeared in numerous primetime series and films.
With “The Young and the Restless” filming roughly five weeks ahead of airdate, a representative has told Soap Opera Network that Morgan will begin airing on Friday, October 7.
“All My Children,” which taped in New York City for much of its broadcast run before moving to the Andrita Studios in Los Angeles after just a year and a half, will cease production next week. Morgan and Jacob Young (JR Chandler) are the only actors confirmed not to be joining the series when it relaunches on the new Prospect Park online network in January 2012. “All My Children” airs its broadcast television series finale on Friday, September 23.

On the Next All My Children…
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Even though Jessica Brennan (Bree Williamson) appears to be fully integrated, that doesn’t mean the end of the line for her infamous alter ego Tess. As we previously reported, fans can expect yet another visit from Llanview’s least favorite alternate personality soon. However, it may not be in quite the way you think.
With an increasingly unsympathetic Jessica maintaining control, Ford (David A. Gregory) is at his wit’s end over the loss of his beloved Tess. However, just as he is about to give up on ever getting her back on Wednesday, September 7, he conjures up a vision of Tess who urges not to give up on their love and chastises him for not fighting for her hard enough.
But will he open up to Jessica or will someone from the past interfere with his plans? Tune in to find out. Though be forewarned, Gregory has listed his September airdates as only the 6, 7, 21, and 27.
Last Friday, I had stated on my personal Twitter account that I had been hearing reports that “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” might be heading to Bravo as a part of a cable deal with Prospect Park, which is reportedly looking for a cable network to supplement costs for its online network debuting in January 2012. Although it’s taken longer than expected to get an official response from Bravo, a spokesperson has stated that “these are all just rumors.”
If you happened to be tuning into “One Life to Live” or “General Hospital” today and you lived in New York City or its surrounding areas, you may have noticed no shows! That’s because both shows were preempted by WABC, the nations most watched station and ABC’s flagship station in New York. If you don’t have SOAPnet or access to the ABC.com Full Episode Player (if you are reading this you should), then you are out of luck when it comes to viewing today’s episodes.
According to a station representative, due to coverage of Hurricane Irene, all ABC broadcasts will be preempted so the station can bring viewers wall to wall coverage of the upcoming hurricane scheduled to hit the New York/New Jersey coast by 9:00 PM Saturday evening. The station will not resume broadcasting ABC programming until an unspecified time tomorrow or until time warrants.
Today’s interruption for “One Life to Live” in particular is just the latest in a series of interruptions/preemptions that have occurred this week alone and will likely impact the series greatly when Nielsen Media Research releases ratings data covering the week of August 22-26, 2011 next week.
If you do have SOAPnet and/or access to the ABC.com Full Episode Player, “One Life to Live” and “General Hospital” will be available in their entirety as scheduled.
