Peter Bergman believes what's good for one soap opera is good for all soap operas.
That's why the actor -- who has played Jack Abbott on the CBS weekday staple "The Young and the Restless" for 24 years, winning three Daytime Emmy Awards for the role -- is rooting for the former ABC shows "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" to succeed in their new form as online offerings, with production on them set to resume at the end of the month.
"We have lamented the loss of that crazy wave of fascination with soap operas," Bergman tells Zap2it, "but the things that are hot now in primetime, from 'Downton Abbey' to 'Mad Men' to the rebirth of 'Dallas,' are serials. I'm hopeful this will go on for a while, and the reason these shows do go on is that when people tune in, they know who they're going to see. »
