I remember during the 84 Summer Olympics in L.A. that aired on ABC, for those 2 weeks, Edge of Night, Loving, and Ryan's Hope were completely pre-empted (EDGE even took out full page ads reminding everyone to tune in after the Olympics) and AMC, OLTL, and GH aired 40 minute episodes crammed into the 1pm - 3pm time period. It was pretty much all Olympics all the time -- and the abbreviated versions of those 3 soaps were a compromise for affiliates who didn't want to lose their regular daytime programming! Originally, all of ABC soaps were supposed to be off for 2 weeks but the affiliates had a fit.
