Given time soap fans will be a force not to be ignored once we get organized. And now we have Agnes Nixon on our side!
Let's pace ourselves as it could be a long battle! Get some rest Raven!
Meanwhile let's keep watching our beloved soaps at the very least on ABC!

Raven WHAT is the rationale behind canceling GH if ABC wants the 18-49 demographic? It is #2 behind The View in daytime, and at times, it has surpassed it.

The Talk has lousy ratings, according to this article -
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2011/01/cbs-finds-a-way-to-make-low-ratings-roll-the-right-way-for-julie-chens-the-talk-.html

...and why it was renewed is inexplicable, as you can read in the article.

So it must be money, but what is the point if no one is watching? Does anyone honestly think there are viewers for a cooking show and a weight loss show in the afternoon?

Joan, Julie Chen is married to Les Monvees, the murderer of GL & ATWT, the creep who referred to both soaps as "grandmother's soap operas", the guy she had a baby with about a year or so ago & then ATWT was cancelled & she got a talk show about babies.

Does it make more sense now?

I understand about The Talk but I DON'T understand the rationale for giving GH a year at most. If the networks want the 18-49 demographic, and GH vascillates between #1 and #2 for ABC daytime, WHY replace it? What is the rationale? Cheaper, okay, but do they think they can get that demographic to watch another reality show?

I just wrote to my local ABC affiliate about the cancellations of AMC and OLTL, to try to keep them on the air!

What else can we do? I have blast emailed sponsors and called and have written letters. No one is listening. Every day something else is taken away from us. Whether its a tv show or our simple rights. Is there any chance at all that the OWN network (Oprah Winfrey) would consider taking the shows to her network?
