'One Life to Live,' 'All My Children' cut to twice a week


UPI News Service, 05/16/2013 

"All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will air new episodes online two times a week instead of four, producers of the U.S. soap operas said Thursday.

Starting Monday, fresh installments of "All My Children" will premiere Mondays and Wednesdays, while new episodes of "One Life to Live" will air Tuesdays and Thursdays.

"In the past these shows had their vast majority of views within the first 24 hours," Prospect Park producers Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz said in a joint statement.

"Instead, our shows are primarily consumed on different days than when they originally air. Primarily, fans have been binge-viewing or watching on demand, and as a result, we feel we have been expecting our audience to dedicate what has turned out to be an excessive amount of time to viewing these shows. ... We are finding that asking most people to regularly watch more than a half hour per day online seems to be too much."

ABC announced it was canceling the shows in 2011.

Prospect Park revived the programs this year and new episodes began airing April 29 on The Online Network.
