Oprah and her network, OWN are trying to ensure they keep their success going this Summer. Lady O tweeted moments ago, that OWN has acquired the rights to 40 new episodes of the popular All My Children and One Life To Live webisodes.
The 10 week limited engagement will begin on July 15th and half hour episodes will air Monday through Thursday. If you’re not familiar the sop operas, they were popular day-time fixtures for over 40 years and were cancelled back in 2011. In April of this year Prospect Park and The OnLine Network brought back both popular series as online episodes.
I am excited for all of the new programming on OWN and it appears Oprah is turning this network around, like she said she would in an interview with Kempire Radio. Also, the Forbes Most Powerful Celebrity recently beat BET in the ratings with the addition of Tyler Perry’s ‘The Haves And Have Nots’ and ‘Love Thy Neighbor.’ Congrats O!
