Subject: Where to find sponsors (and other important info) - http://community.webtv.net/dw_m/saveoltl
In reply to: Ravenbeauty 's message, "Note to my readers................................." on 19:23:20 04/16/11 Sat

http://community.webtv.net/dw_m/saveoltl has a continually updated list of OLTL sponsors and will continue to track sponsors of The Chew & The Revolution. In addition, the site is being updated with helpful and essential info for fans interested in saving the show. Add it to your bookmarks and share the link with other forums/groups/sites/link pages.

A section on alternate actions and methods of allowing OLTL to live on will be included. I'm waiting to see RB's write-up in regards to the details of the Oprah plan before putting it up.

Until they're on the page, some other stuff being bandied about:

- contacting other networks to see if they can pick up OLTL
- getting OLTL reformatted as a primetime drama series
- sending fish (inspired by Oliver Fish) and lemons (inspired by "lemon in my eye") to ABC/Disney (every save our show campaign tends to have a "gift" attached to them!)
- having OLTL live on in book/print form written by novelist and twice-former OLTL headwriter Michael Malone.

RB, thanks for mentioning stuff that needs to be said in regards to not boycotting the soaps themselves, and targeting sponsors and affiliates (again, that's all ground i've been covering at the site). Remember to include Robert Iger in your letters/calls/emails as he's above Sweeney/Frons and one or both of those people need to lose their jobs over this.

Just remember the what is happening in the world because citizens got on their computers, phones, etc and invited people to work togeher for a common goal. We can do this too, if we all stick together-we need team work. Hopefully another network-station will pick up the soaps. We have to be the voice and show unity and that we won't back down. Stop supporting all ABC shows-there are more fish in the sea to watch then ABC shows.( and only watch the 3 soaps till they go) If we stop supporting them on a larger scale, they won't get the advertising revenue. So, stop watching and supporting all of their advertised products. The tv shows are for us-it is our dollars that pay for the ads when we buy the advertised goods. Somehow the executives forget that we are who they should be pleasing-if not, the products won't sell and advertising dollars will dwindle. It should not be about cutting costs but rather quality. Maybe the execs can take pay cuts instead of unemploying 600 plus people. We need to keep jobs not get rid of them. The two shows that are slated to take their place may cost less to produce but they will not offer up as many jobs. Nor will they offer the comfort that the shows do. Shame on Disney for not trying to help America to recover economically: they are just pushing America into a dip hole that is hard to dig out of. We should also be boycotting Disney Parks, too. And what about, Disney movies, music, videos, Disney Channel, etc. Disney wants to play hardball with us-we can play hardball with them. It is our money that they use-so we should be able to choose what we want to watch. Isn't that fair? Stick together-we are the voice. We have the power to change things, but we have to be willing to make sacrifices and work together. Also, hope to look as good as Robin when I am her age. She looks fantastic. Ms. Handler is just a symptom of what is wrong with America. She is vile and says and does outrageous. She and all the others like her and what the networks want us to watch. I for one won't and tired of seeing such poor quality shows for the sake of money.TLC shows a woman and 8 spoiled kids out of control. What is wrong with America today? Bad shows are a like a virus spreading. We need to get rid of trash and bring back quality. I tired of quality being traded to save a buck. We will all lose more than a buck in the end.
