Vincent Irizarry on All My Children Schedule Change: "It’s Now 'Anytime' Rather Than 'Daytime'"


 Vincent Irizarry is speaking out on The Online Network's recent decision to cut All My Children and One Life to Live's episodes down from four per week to two. Said the actor on his web site:

Please understand, the decision was made out of our producers being sensitive to the viewing patterns and busy lives of all our faithful viewers. They were able to analyze by the 3rd week, many viewers were still just watching shows from the 1st week, thereby having fallen behind by 12 hours of viewing at that time already; if they were watching both shows. Their decision was based on their genuine desire to prevent any of you from falling so far behind, whereas you begin to experience catching up as an obligation, or worse, as a burden.
