The Edge of Night on ABC and Somerset on NBC was the very first time that two soap operas both owned by Procter and Gamble aired opposite each other.    Plus, Somerset was also airing at noon (Cental Time) on NBC.

When did ATWT and AW start airing opposite each other? Texas aired opposite GL, right?

In 1980 after they ended the ill-fated 90 minute version of Another World and moved it from 2:30 Eastern to 2:00 and begat Texas running at 3.  The Young and the Restless expanded to 1 hour around the same time airing at 1-2 pushing ATWT to 2-3 opposite AW and Guuding Light 3-4 opposite Texas

I’m still saying CBS claimed they couldn’t move EON to 3,3:30, or I suppose 4 because it would compete against P and G s Another Would and Somerset breaking the sponsors no compete rule

 

However ABC didn’t seem to have a problem not complying with P&Gs rule

I know that I have seen two books based on All My Children and at least one based on One Life to Live.   It seems as though I heard that was a book based on Search for Tomorrow, but I am not sure.

There are more Soap Opera Books out there based on AMC!

yes there is a book out there of Search of Tomorrow
