Still 2 episodes a week but both episodes of each show will be available on Monday starting next week.

I don't think this instability is the best idea.

Ok whew thought they were cutting to 1 a week. Guess that was the whole "for the moment" language in their email yesterday. Another change looks kind of crazy but I think I actually like this schedule better than the staggered especially with the short eps. I don't know- whatever they have me no matter how its scheduled so my viewing habits are irrelevant.

Is PP schizophrenic or something? WHY does this stuff keep changing every 2 weeks? Id find all this inconsistency more of a turn off and more likely to make people tune out

It's not a change to the episodes per week so I can't get that fussed. I agree they should stop changing the schedule for a while, but it's not as big a deal to me as, say, cutting two per week or removing profanity.

 

It sounds as though it's reactive towards people still wanting binge viewing - they got complaints about daily viewing being enforced when they cut to two per week, so now there's this. And I don't encourage hyper-reactivity, but at the same time I'm not gonna complain about being able to watch an hour a day of OLTL. So whatever. As long as they're not cutting the episodes per week again I've seen it all before at this point.

 

In any event, I'm sure the self-appointed sages will do plenty of hyperventilating for me for about eight hours before moving on to something else.

They're probably still not getting as much viewers as they hoped for with the alternating schedule. It's clear the shows gets their highest viewership on Monday and then fall off. That's true even on television with serialized drama. There's very little competition Monday morning, due to lack of new Sunday night programming, on Hulu during the summer too. It's not a terrible idea.

Um..I thought they didn't like viewers binge watching?  isn't that why they cut down to two episodes week?

My new way of thinking of the TOLN soaps is by calling them the "schizo soaps." I can't anymore...


They might as well just release AMC and OLTL as 1-hour shows at this point. Why bother spreading out 2 episodes to release on Mondays? I mean, is it even worth it? 


Sorry Errol, I looked and didn't see it reported here. 

 

It didn't hit the boards yet. No worries.

Reading between the lines of business spin, the reason they cut the episodes is most likely because they weren't getting enough views to get the necessary returns they need.

They really might as well.

 

I expect that announcement this time next month ;)

Can we keep the thread structure pretty much as it is. Maybe Monday we have a thread for AMC and Tuesday we have a thread for OLTL,. I feel like having separate threads for each episode posted on Mondays will get chaotic. Or create one huge monthly thread for both shows similar to the rest of the soaps.

Exactly, this is getting annoying.

We can just do 1 thread for each show a week and that's it.

At this point, starting next week, both soaps WILL have a weekly thread. Daily Threads are done!

I have to spend the next several weeks immersed in dozens of films and deadlines, it's ninety degrees here, and I can't settle on a sleep schedule. So at this point they could show my soaps on the back of a giant luck dragon as it sails through the skies of Brooklyn and I wouldn't care that much.

 

I was already well-immersed in the Land of Magical Thinking when AMC and OLTL came back from the [!@#$%^&*] dead, and were actually good - anything else is gravy to me. Yeah, I'd like 'em to stop changing it. No, at core nothing much has changed for me viewer-wise. And I got far bigger fish to fry this next month, so I can't really care.

Though will people who want to spread out their viewing get grumpy about spoilers?  I thought this meant originally they woul send one One Life and one AMC on Mondays and ten both on Wed.  Oh well--though I agree it seems odd.

If they don't want to be spoiled they should not go into the threads until after watching the weeks worth of episodes. A weekly thread is actually a good idea regardless of the lack of scheduling with each show. It's only two 20-24-minutes episodes a week for each show.
