Will Returning Soaps Survive Online?

eaction to the return of All My Children and One Life to Live -- albeit on the Internet -- was generally positive among both fans and the show's actors. On Hulu, which is among the sites carrying the show Monday through Thursday (with a recap on Friday), Cady McClain of All My Children remarked, I know it was a long wait. I know there have been a lot of ups and downs. I just want to assure the fans that it feels like another era of golden years for this show. It's truly the best that All My Children is and can be again. Los Angeles Times media writer Meg James spelled out the difficulty the new producers, Prospect Park, face if they are to keep the two shows alive. The challenge for Prospect Park will be to recruit advertisers and younger viewers while still delivering compelling stories about veteran characters that a majority of the audience grew to love, James wrote. In addition, many older viewers are not as technologically savvy and might be less inclined to make the leap to Internet services.
