All My Children & One Life to Live Are Back And Better Than Ever!

Soap Opera Fans Unite! All My Children & One Life to Live are back and better than ever.  I know what you are thinking to yourself. But they are no longer on television! How can this be?!

The shows will premiere on Hulu starting at midnight on Monday, April 29th and will also be available on Hulu+ (AMC / OLTL) and iTunes for on-the-go viewing. Woot! Woot! That’s not the only change that’s happening either. The episodes are now 30 minutes long and will be available each weekeday, with a recap on Friday.

Now… I have to warn you. Since the shows are no longer on television, they might be a bit more adult oriented. So, look out for profanities and other material NOT suitable for younger children. In other words, do NOT watch these shows while feeding little Jacob his lunch. 🙂 These shows should be considered your guilty pleasure for when you are away from your adorable little tots.
