Reducing 58 Episodes from Planned 168 Per Year Schedule Leaves Only 110 Eps Each for ‘AMC’ and ‘OLTL’; Can Prospect Park Grow It Back Though?
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?
