One Life to Live

SOAPnet: The Definition of “Classic” Made Clear

Monday, August 15, 2011 2:13 PM EDT
On Friday, August 12, both Soap Opera Network and Soap Opera Digest reported SOAPnet's post "All My Children" schedule (Monday, September 26), which included the insertion of "Brothers & Sisters" re-runs and the shuffling of more than 80% of the schedule into different time periods. Other than "Days of our Lives" picking up a primetime spot (8:00 PM ET/PT), nothing caught reader attention more than the network announcing classic episodes of "All My Children," "General Hospital" and "One Life to Live." So what is a classic episode according to the network?
After nearly a two year absence, Kathy Brier and Chris Stack are set to return to ABC's "One Life to Live" just before the series ends its run on broadcast television. According to Brier during last nights "Divas" concert at the Triad in New York City, Michael (Stack) and Marcie (Brier) McBain are heading back to Llanview for a few months beginning in October, although the actors have yet to begin filming their first scenes.
"One Life to Live" fans hoping to catch another glimpse of some of their favorite recurring characters before the show wraps production on its TV run in November, can now breath a collective sigh of relief. In the coming weeks, several of Llanview's "seen, but not heard" characters will be appearing in upcoming episodes.
As Soap Opera Network first reported on our Twitter page, Prospect Park has quietly confirmed that "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will premiere online on Monday, January 16, 2012 and "One Life's" last airdate on ABC will be Friday, January 13, 2012. Previously "One Life" was expected to air its ABC finale on Friday, January 20, 2012, according to sources.
After a number of years being relegated to the 11:00 PM time slot (outside of the primetime hours of 8:00 to 11:00 PM), SOAPnet's same day re-airings of NBC's "Days of our Lives" are about to replace ABC's canceled "All My Children" in the 8:00 PM ET/PT slot after the latter soap goes off the air on Friday, September 23.
