ONLINE VIEWERS SURPRISED BY "SEASON FINALES" FOR "AMC" AND "OLTL": Expecting that "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" would run continuous episodes online, as they did on broadcast television, viewers were caught off guard when first season finales were announced for both shows.

Having already trimmed the number of weekly episodes and offered anytime viewing, the producers opted for a periodic format with a break in between. "OLTL" has just completed its debut season, with "AMC" ending Monday, Sept. 2. Production of both shows is expected to resume this month, making an autumn return feasible.

New Zealand actress Rose McIver has been signed to the coveted role of Tinker Bell for the third season of ABC's Once Upon A Time, which begins this year in Wonderland. The recurring role will include multiple episodes. Later in the season, which debuts on Sept. 29, the character of Ariel, The Little Mermaid, is also set to appear.

Jack Wagner ("General Hospital"/"Bold and Beautiful") and Cameron Mathison ("AMC") will co-star in "My Gal Sunday," a two-hour pilot for The Hallmark Channel that is being considered for a possible primetime run.
