Technically deficient soap opera fans may have felt slighted when long-running serials "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" made the transition from broadcast TV to online-only this year. But the good news for them is that both shows are coming back to cable TV, for awhile anyway.
OWN has announced a limited 10-week summer engagement for both shows, which will include the first 40 episodes of both soaps produced for the OnLine Network.
The half-hour episodes will air Monday through Thursday, with "All My Children" at 1 p.m. PT and "One Life to Live" at 3 p.m. PT.
"These shows have proved to be very popular with a significant, loyal fan base, not to mention Oprah herself is a big fan," OWN President Erik Logan said in a statement.
