Like “All My Children” co-star Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt) before him, Vincent Irizarry (David Hayward) has posted a message on his Facebook page discussing the “AMC” and “One Life to Live” episode order reduction by Prospect Park. In his message, the actor notes, “With the great number of episodes being offered for this year, I’m confident that we’ll all be satisfied with the many hours of viewing pleasure available to us all. We, as a cast and production team, are extremely proud of our beloved shows airing, and can’t be more grateful to all of you for your overwhelming expressions of excitement and support for all we’re doing to bring these iconic shows back for you to enjoy. We’re also sincerely humbled by your very vocal expressions of love and enthusiasm for what you’ve all been seeing. It is ours, and most importantly, Prospect Park’s intention to do whatever possible to enable us to continue bringing these cherished shows into your homes, whether via your flat screens, your tablets, computers, or even your cell phones for many, many more years, and hopefully, generations to come.”
As previously reported, The OnLine Network has released a recap video that hopes to bring viewers up to speed on the goings on in Llanview on the network’s “One Life to Live.” At nearly 30 minutes in length, “Who’s Who in Llanview” is available online via Hulu.com (free) or Hulu Plus (via subscription).

EPISODE ONE OF ‘ONE LIFE TO LIVE’ AND EPISODE ONE OF ‘ALL MY CHILDREN’ NOW AVAILABLE ON THE TOLN YOUTUBE CHANNEL
Los Angeles, May 22, 2013– The Online Network (TOLN) has plans to catch all fans up on their favorite shows, “All My Children” and “One Life To Live.” While brand new episodes of “All My Children” will post on Mondays and Wednesdays and new episodes of “One Life To Live,” will post on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning this week, the company said today that plans were in place to provide viewers with several opportunities to catch up on recent episodes of the series which made their historic online debut on April 29th. Newly-produced recaps bringing fans up to date on key storyline developments that took place during the first three weeks of episodes are now available on the free Hulu.com service and to subscribers of Hulu Plus:
“One Life To Live”
“All My Children”
The revival of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” could be just the start of cancelled network shows finding new homes in other places. Not only will “Arrested Development,” a popular comedy Fox cancelled in 2006, continue on Netflix starting Sunday, May 26, but ABC’s recently cancelled ‘Body of Proof’ may get a similar second chance!
According to Deadline Hollywood, the series — which stars “Desperate Housewives’” Dana Delany — is being considered for pickup by TNT, USA and WGN America, and here’s why: The show picked up 8.6 million viewers last week alone (several million more than ABC’s “Nashville” and “Revenge,” two shows ABC decided not to cancel).
The onscreen sparks between “One Life to Live’s” Melissa Archer (Natalie Buchanan) and Josh Kelly (Cutter Wentworth) have definitely been worth noticing, but could the actors truly see their characters forming a meaningful relationship? Or will their fling be over in a hot second? We caught up with the pair to find out!
“It’s a very fun exploration, and I’ve love to see what they are planning to do and where they want to take it,” confesses Archer of Natalie and Cutter’s attraction to one another. “We’ve had fun so far, and I definitely think it’s exciting; I think we have good chemistry.”
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 “One Life to Live” 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.
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.
“When the demand grows for more episodes we have the ability to readjust quickly,” a statement read on the “AMC” Facebook page after a concerned viewer asked,”how far into the future will a decision be made about whether there will be more episodes ordered beyond the 110?” The “AMC” Facebook page added to their response in which they said, “The demand of episodes is measured by viewership of each episode.” Of course, that means the more you watch, the more you get. Isn’t that how it’s always been though?
What Do You Think?
For the first time ever fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” will be able to watch a legal copy of the premiere episodes of both soaps, which launched on Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes. Just a short time ago, Prospect Park‘s The OnLine Network uploaded the premiere episodes on its TOLNSoaps YouTube page for the viewing pleasure of fans all around the world (ie. no region cap). “TOLNSoaps on YouTube is a hub for all fans of the shows, a place to watch Behind the Scenes content, Recaps, Previews and Interviews through a platform that allows for free streaming on all devices including mobile.
