Roger Howarth, who played Todd Manning on One Life to Live from 1992-2003 will return to the show later this year.
What does this mean for the show? For Roger? For Todd?

I would Love to continue to wAtch OLTL some more I didn't like the idea @@ I don't want the new Tood to be change, I always record my show I don't I will be watching any other show@@@@@
"Old" Todd coming back? Let me guess, he was in a coma and the "new" Todd stole his identity because he was escaping from some bad people or he was a bad person looking to escape.
AS for the soaps going off ABC? You can count me OUT of watching the new shows you suggest. I HATE reality shows AND talk shows. Your scheduling S*cks!! the only shows I watch on your network now are AMC and OLTL with DWTS. looks like its down to one show for a few weeks. Unless that one goes south, too. I don't watch your news, morning daytime shows aren't recorded and your night schedule s*cks! SOmething needs to give and it's not shows! it's the people who THINK of the shows. Change it up to compete!
Reason soap's are getting cancelled :
It's all about the ratings to put a show on the air someone with a product needs to help finance the show by buying a spot for a commercial if the show does not get good ratings no one wants a commercial spot on that show though its true that different shows depending on the ratings cost more or less for a commercial spot it still has to be enough to support the show.
Reason rating's are down and keep going down :
years ago it started going down when more women went to work then soapnet came on the air people our family yes were guilty and sorry for it watch the shows on soapnet because they had better picture and sound and they came on at prime time the time we watch them , also now you can watch them on the internet all this takes away from the rating's of the orginal soap's time and channel were is the place the show gets its monet from , all the wonderful new technology with the old rating system is destroying soap's and other good televsion.
As for the actors playing todd I love them both but I think it's wrong to replace the orginal with the current when the current has been doing a excellent job for a long time unless the current just wanted out for some reason I do not know if this is the case.
It is sad that the soap opera era is ending when I was growing up I watched with my grand-father and mother and sisters and brother and for the last bit of years I watched with my mother and my kids and talk on the phone with my sisters and brother about them it's a family past time for generations and makes us feel like the ones no longer with us are still with us for a while , not to mention nothing entertains us more then soap opera's so for our family it is a veeerrryyy sad time.
The only way I can see a way to change things which a PTB would have to want to do is to create channel's that only showed one type of show like in this case a soap channel that showed nothing but old soap's and made a bunch of brand new ones and to Instead of relying on adversment to finace it , people would have to pay a small price to get that channel that would finace it.
I think its cool that he is coming back but I HATE that the show is going off the air. I have watched the show more than half my life. I love this show. I used to come home from school and watch with my Mom. Why would they take it off?? I can not find the answer anywhere.
I think it's so cool that he's coming back. He was amazing on the show. It's crazy about the actor and the social clash of the character todd. back then the todd he played was psycho and just pure brute- like pure evil with the spring fling and the constant sexual harassment on nora and marty. but if I was him I would've left the show too because A. why would the writers try to push a rapist and a victim as a couple (especially how horrific it was). B. I would just be uncomfortable about some female viewers being sexually attracted by the character. Imo I feel that the actor should come back because his acting was amazing and one life need some more good actors from the 90's golden age of soaps.
Thank you Roger and TPTB!!!! Cannot wait to see the real Todd return! HOT!
I agree with all I have read!
ABC shouldn't cancel AMC NOR OLTL!!!
I have watched both from the day both 1st aired.
I will never watch anything on the network again.
That means the evening news, dwts, nothing!!
If I desire reality shows, I watch the cable ones at night!!!
I agree with you. Don't change Todd...He should not have left the show in the first place. Keep the Todd we have now.
i'm glad to see the original todd manning coming back. he's the real deal. welcome back roger. make me proud.
I agree with so many other soap fans regarding the cancellations of AMC and OLTL. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THEM OFF THE AIR! I, as well as many other soap fans will BOYCOTT ABC AND THEIR SPONSORS. I tape all of the episodes so I don't miss any! I've had enough of reality shows! With the exception of American Idol and Dancing with the Stars, other reality shows disgust me! Even though DWTS is on ABC, I will still BOYCOTT ABC ANYWAY, AND THEIR SPONSORS! IF ANY IF THE ACTORS ARE TIRED OF DOING THE SHOW - REPLACE THEM! KEEP AMC AND OLTL ON FOR THE FANS WHO LOVE THEM! PLEASE RESPECT THE FANS' WISHES AND KEEP OUR SOAPS ON THE AIR!!!!!!!!!!!!
