When Loving first premiered, it was big on television. After all, this was the child of two great and creative geniuses, Agnes Nixon and Douglas Marland. It had great potential and lasted for as long as it could. It never recovered from Ryan's Hope as a lead in show. I remember the cast. The actors and actresses were pretty and the set always looked like you could put it on All My Children. But sadly, the show never maintained or garnered a large audience like All My Children. There is no question that there were great actors on the show like Wesley Addy, Celeste Holm, Christine Tudor, Larkin Malloy, Lisa Peluso, Nada Rowand, and more that I have forgotten. I haven't seen the show in years but it never got much recognition like it's sister shows, All My CHildren and One Life to Live. Maybe if Douglas Marland had stayed on as head writer, the show would have become more like AS the World TUrns. But the truth is that it was worth watching when soaps ruled daytime. Now, there is only 1 30 minute show on the air.
