Changed my usual posting name for this post. Raven is 100% correct. This has positively been in the work for at least a year. About a year ago Disney tried to feel out the syndication marketplace with The View. Enough Local station did not want it at the cost they(Disney)
needed to make the move to syndication. Fronz is the axe man not the author of the plan.

I have watched all three soaps all my life. Yes there are times that I abandoned one or the other but I still watch OLTL religiously and keep an eye on AMC and GH.

I will still watch all 3 as long as I can, and even play them on Hulu. But I will honestly boycott all ABC show during November except the soaps, why because those rating help decide upfront dollars. While networks make money all year, the bulk of $'s come during the upfront. I love cooking shows I watching them all weekend long on Food Channel, Bravo TLC, will not watch as part of daytime.

I also believe that this DECISION was made at least a year ago. When Soapnet announced going to 24/7 PreSchool programming, that sounded the alarm. Having lived through GL and then ATWT's cancellation, when AMC moved to L.A. I found it all too familiar .... cost saving my a$$. The handwriting was on the wall, the joke on us. But when Michael Logan spoke the truth AFTER Raven spoke the truth, the denials started flying, which just made the truth all that more true. Reactions from people OTHER THAN fans has been embarrassing ... couldn't anyone keep their mouths closed, for at a least a few days. The immediate "no one was watching" and "get over it" really ignited the firefight which I hope won't be extinguished. They slapped us in the face and are now telling us we screamed "OUCH" too loud.
