One Life to Live
One Life to Live celebrates its 45th anniversary Monday, and is also celebrating a new beginning. New episodes will premiere as scheduled on Hulu and iTunes, and the show will also begin its limited 10-week run on OWN.
"I'm just glad that we can actually have an anniversary, that we're not having a funeral," star Kassie DePaiva, who plays Blair Cramer on the long-running soap, tells TVGuide.com. "Hopefully 45 years from now, somebody else will still be talking about One Life to Live."

He'll play Charles Van Horn, a lawsuit-happy curmudgeon who is representing himself in a court case involving his dog's unplanned pregnancy. TV Guide Magazine had a chat with Knight to score some scoop on his role and, of course, to get his thoughts on the AMC Internet reboot. Will he ever return to Pine Valley?
