Thank you Oprah!

Now if you could just put "The Haves" as an option on OnDemand and reair the interview you did on Sunday with Viola Davis, Alfre Woodard (who I love), and the other two women I'd love it! I missed it.

Smart move. Maybe this will lead to a permanent home for them. I guess the "Haves" changed her mind about the draw of a soap.

There's an Oprah's Next Chapter marathon this coming Sunday, and the Viola Davis, Alfre Woodard one will air at 10pm eastern. Smile

Thank you Oprah.

I was a bit disappointed when I heard about her collaboration with Tyler Perry. As a woman I find his work to be a bit demeaning and always found Oprah to be above that type of 'entertainment.'

With that said the decision to bring AMC and OLTL to OWN will bring me back to her network. Good decision but I still have no interest in "Haves.."

I'm guessing this is a good business decision too since PP is the one who invested all the upfront $ in production costs. I'm still thrilled to have these soaps aired on tv in addition to the net. Maybe the influx of additional cash will help keep these shows in production?

@snizzle: Maybe she had to make a deal with the devil like Jesse did on AMC to get these shows on there. Evil That devil being Tyler Perry. Ghost

@everyone: I am living my best life right now! Let's make this summer jaunt with AMC so successful that it will be extended. And with that, the world can be our oyster.

I didn't expect Ron C. to be a hater. "The woman" said she heard us. As far as I'm concerned, it's all water under the bridge, like the debacle storyline surrounding Michael Easton aka Caleb/Silas/Stephen Clay/John McBain.

This from the "writer" who keeps telling the same stories no matter who the cast of characters happen to be.

Ron doesn't want the shows to succeed if he isn't working on them. His reaction to OWN's announcement paired with his behavior at the Emmy's when he lost suggests that he is spiteful. You can tell more about a person on how they handle their losses rather than their wins.

but did she though???

Did Oprah say that there was no money to be made...or did she say that SHE didn't have the resources or wherewithal to do it herself?

Why is RC salty?

If I knew where to find all these gifs, it would be a perfect time to insert the one from "The Soup" about Brian Williams.

Ron C. is so annoying. He must be mad that not everyone thinks he's GH's savior the way the people lied to him and said he was OLTL's.

I'm thrilled that the soaps will have another platform and catch more eyes but I think O is overstating by saying she's hearing us.
It's more like when I remind my sister to get my mom a birthday present and she doesn't listen then wants to throw me some $ and slap her name on my card.
Still glad to have her supporting the shows whether or not fan input motivated the decision.

I have to say, she didn't want to pony up the cash to make the shows, but she wants to just sit back now and try to benefit from their popularity.

Typical 'Oprahtunism'!

Then again, the network probably didn't have any money until Iyanla and Tyler Perry put them on the map with Black oriented programming. Once OWN blows up more financially, she will probably drop the 'Black' programming and replace it with other 'Lifestyle' programming.

well now she recognizes the benefits of having more than one soap on OWN
as this will bring soapy eyes to "To Haves" and other OWN shows -
not to mention sharing some history with OLTL with "To Haves "
in the prominent place ex-OLTL's Tika Sumpter has in their cast.

AMC /OLTL and THOHN (?)viewers will all be sampling each other... I hope it catches on. I guess OLTL and AMC's first 40 will get a re-edit to take out all cuss words before they are aired on OWN. "To Haves" seems to have some kind of Christian backdrop ( backstage) with group prayers. I wonder if anyone can decline to participate in those?

What exactly did Ron Carlivati do at the Emmys?

I doubt that Oprah had any intention of having the kardashians on her show either until she realized she needed to change her views, if she wanted her failing network to succeed. I Will not watch the have and have bots, not my type of show, but I will try to show support to amc and oltl.

What is rc' s problem? That is why I don't like him. He just seems to always have a negative air about him. I wish gh would get rid if him.

Think about this from Ron's perspective...

He signed on to write the original online version of OLTL, and that was at the time when Oprah was not interested in bringing them back to television. As happy as I am for this turn of events, I can see why he'd write that tweet. I would have been slightly upset had it been me.
