OWN Rethinks Excessive Daytime Drama Airing Schedule

When OWN and the big O – Oprah announced they that they would be hosting a SUMMER FLING with All My Children and One Life to Live and that they would be airing all 40 episodes of each show in an excessive way, I had my reservations. I wondered how airing these shows several times a day could give them an accurate reading on who is watching and when? I also thought it would highly dilute accurate viewer amounts and I felt that it was giving viewers way too many choices. This is and was a clear case of less is more and it looks like OWN has come to release that. Let’s just hope it is not too little too late.

According to recently released listings, “AMC” will continueairing at 1:00 PM ET/PT and “OLTL” will immediately follow at 1:30 PM ET/PT.

The OWN network began airing both soaps on Monday, July 15. Ratings the first week could have been better and it was reported that they did better the second week.

Now that they are going to run the shows more traditionally and in fact, All My Children is being run in it’s old time slot of 1:00 p.m. with One Life to Live following immediately at 1:30 p.m., I am sure OWN will see much more substantive numbers as well as getting a more accurate accounting of viewership. It will give them a better idea of what they would see if they were to consider bringing the shows to OWN on a regular full time basis.

It is very important that ALL DAYTIME DRAMA FANS that get the OWN NETWORK tune in to watch these shows on Monday, August 5th, 2013.

What do you mean you will miss OLTL? OWN is still showing it. And it's still on Hulu!

I will. I miss OLTL.
