'AMC,' 'OLTL' won't find new life online

It looks like the Web won't be the saving grace for soap fans, as Variety reports that ABC's canceled series "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" will not find new life online.

"All My Children" aired its final episode on September 23, and was expected to launch again online thanks to media/production company Prospect Park. "One Life to Live" was to face the same digital rebirth after it airs its last episode in January.

However, Prospect Park says in a statement, "It is with great disappointment that we are suspending our aspirations to revive 'One Life to Live' and 'All My Children' via online distribution."

The Throwback: A mini 'Full House' reunion

Joey and Steph together again? Cut. It. Out.

In a “Full House” reunion of sorts, Dave Coulier and Jodie Sweetin star in the web series “Can’t Get Arrested,” which pokes fun at some of their post-“Full House” experiences in Hollywood.

You may recall that Coulier played Joey Gladstone on “Full House” throughout the series’ 1987-1995 run, and Sweetin played his niece, Stephanie.

'Twilight's' Jackson Rathbone lands Facebook series

The "Twilight Saga" isn't going to last forever, and on-screen vamp Jackson Rathbone's got another project lined up: Warner Bros. Digital Distrbution's "social series," "Aim High."

Rathbone stars as high school junior Nick Green, a kid who battles your typical school drama by day and international spies by night - he's one of the country's 64 "highly-trained" government agents.

This wouldn't be a series about high school if there wasn't a love interest. "Friday Night Lights'" Aimee Teegarden plays Amanda, the "wickedly cool rocker chick," as the Facebook page for "Aim High" describes her, who's caught Nick's eye.

It's Lil Martha Stewart!

It's Lil Martha Stewart!

Imagine a children's cartoon character saying things like: "Something about the lactic acid in milk makes your hands soft," or, "It's hard to sit on a beach when all I wanna do is make invitations," or "Use this to trim off the dead skin around your nails."

It doesn't seem plausible... unless that character is an animated, 10-year-old Martha Stewart.

As it turns out, Stewart is borrowing a page (a hand-letter pressed one, no doubt!) from the book of "Muppet Babies." The digital animated series "Martha & Friends" chronicles the crafty adventures of Martha and her pals Lily, Hannah and Kevin.

OK Go covers 'Muppets' theme song in new video

"Muppets: The Green Album" arrives in stores today, and there's already a video to go along with one of the tracks.

"The Green Album" is a collection of covers of famed "Muppets" songs (or fave songs performed by them) by the likes of My Morning Jacket, The Fray and Weezer, and OK Go took on the task of reinterpreting the "Muppet Show Theme Song."

In the clip, we see our favorite characters, including Fozzie, The Swedish Chef, Animal, Kermit, Gonzo and Miss Piggy join in. Don't miss Statler and Waldorf's appearance a minute and a half in.

2011 is shaping up to be the year of the Muppet: a feature length film starring the old-school Jim Henson creations, appropriately titled "The Muppets" arrives in theaters on November 23. (See trailer one and trailer two at the links.)
