(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — If you happened to be watching the east coast feed of “One Life to Live” today, you may have felt you were in a time warp and it was Wednesday, August 24, 2011 all over again after nearly thirty minutes into the broadcast. Turns out you weren’t in a different dimension or anything more soapy, but you were witnessing a “technical glitch,” an ABC rep confirms to Soap Opera Network.

Today’s east coast glitch, which found a segment that originally aired during the soaps August 24 broadcast taking the place of another previously scheduled segment, had been rectified in time for the mountain and pacific time zone broadcasts (central time zone feeds off of the east coast feed directly) and the original episode will air as it was originally intended on SOAPnet and ABC.com.

This marks yet another occasion where the east coast feed of the soap had been interrupted this week alone. On Tuesday, August 23, an earthquake rocked the east just before the program began and caused local news to interrupt that days broadcast for all or part of the show. The episode aired in its entirety later that evening on SOAPnet and upon availability on ABC.com.

DAYTIME EMMYS: ‘Y&R’s’ Amelia Heinle Celebrates First Emmy Nod

With over 20 years of daytime experience, you’d think that Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) would have already been nominated at least once for a Daytime Emmy Award, but shockingly enough, this year’s nomination marks the first for the actress! And she says it’s all due to the incredibly emotional Delia’s death storyline she and her “Y&R” counterparts were given this year. “I don’t always put myself in the running, because I don’t always have [strong material to submit]... but this year, I just thought, you know, I’m just going to put myself in there, so it feels really good, because my instincts, I guess, were right!” she says, adding that the impact of the storyline was felt by everybody right from the beginning. “The first day of shooting the Delia stuff, after she died, this weird sort of camaraderie came over all of us. I don’t think we anticipated the magnitude of how heavy it would be, because sometimes you get a storyline that’s really heavy and nobody is into it and nobody can play it, and it’s like, ‘Ugh, this isn’t really working.’ But that day, it meant something to everybody. It almost felt like [the death] really happened. It was surreal, because it was the first time I’ve ever experienced this in all of my years of daytime, where the storyline actually felt pretty real.”
