With the NBC network coverage of the Summer Olympics pre-empting Days of our Lives and Passions for the next two weeks beginning Monday, August 16, 2004, ABC Daytime is hoping that NBC daytime soap fans will tune in to the ABC daytime line up.

To sweeten the pot, not only for potential new viewers, but for ABC daytime long time viewers as well, ABC is running not one, but two fun programs to pique interest in All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live. 

First off, The View is pre-empted Monday, August 16 to make way for SOAPNet Reveals ABC Soap Secrets.  This one-hour special will give you the inside scoop on AMC, GH and OLTL.  SoapTalk hosts, Ty Treadway and Lisa Rinna will work their magic to pry secrets from the likes of Rebecca Budig (Greenlee, AMC), Cameron Mathison (Ryan, AMC), Alicia Minshew (Kendall, AMC), Kamar de los Reyes (Antonio, OLTL), Bree Williamson (Jessica, OLTL), Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH), Tyler Christopher (Nikolas, GH) and Natalia Livingston (Emily, GH).  From the looks of Soapdom's First Look photos, all the featured stars must spill a few pretty interesting beans!  Get your First Looks!

 "This special will be the only viewing option for fans to get exclusive top secret information about stories we have planned for their shows and their favorite characters," said ABC Daytime president, Brian Frons.  "This is a great way for us to share our excitement about upcoming plots with the fans, and we will definitely be delivering some big surprises!"

The hour promises to be filled with never-before-seen interviews, behind the scenes footage and hints at some shocking plot twists that fans have to look forward to this fall on their favorite ABC soaps.  SOAPnet Reveals ABC Soap Secrets will air again on the SOAPnet Cable Network. at both 6 and 11 PM.

And ABC Daytime is not stopping there.  Enter ABC Daytime's fun spoof of the network's own groundbreaking sports news coverage...

ABC's Wide World of Soaps

It's the ecstasy of adultery and the agony of deceit as Bob Guiney (The Bachelor) takes on the role of soap commentator on The Wide World of Soaps, a playful and fun promotional campaign to air on the network for two weeks, beginning August 16, Brian Frons, president, ABC Daytime announced.  

Get Your First Looks

The campaign is specifically designed to mentor, inform and entertain ABC Daytime fans, while targeting fans missing their soaps due to Olympic coverage.  Namely, Days of our Lives and Passions fans.

The spots will feature reporting from Bob Guiney, the signature ABC yellow blazer, and the popular stars of ABC Daytime.  The Wide World of Soaps will air at the end of The View and twice an hour during All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital.

"Fans need their soaps, and we wanted to alert every soap viewer, especially those whose soaps might not be on during this period, that ABC soaps are on the air and have a lot to offer," said Mr. Frons. "Bob Guiney was the perfect choice to host the men's free style six pack competition, sweat it out in the locker room, engage in play-by-play scene analysis with our hottest guys, and get up close and personal with our villains and vamps."
