Hello all... I have a question. I have been a loyal ABC soap watcher since birth. I am heartbroken over the AMC & OLTL. I see all the protests and read all the tidbits about our shows going to Sony (or other places). My question is... when other network soaps were cancelled were there protests and campaigns like the ones I see today?? Did those fans fight like I see the ABC fans fighting?

[> Five Current Events Everyone Should Know About -- DWinPhx, 16:25:03 05/03/11 Tue [1]

1) Hershey's needs 10,000 calls before they'll commit to pulling ads from ABC. 800-468-1714

2) ABC's official OLTL website has a poll asking OLTL viewers if they'll watch the new shows taking AMC/OLTL's place. One of the multiple choices is No - won't even watch ABC at all anymore (paraphrased).

3) Globe Magazine (similar to National Enquirer) has been very good at continued coverage of the outrage over AMC/OLTL's cancellations. The latest issue has a clip-out ballot to send to Globe which they'll deliver to ABC en masse. Now while i personally don't think this will be The Thing that saves the shows, i do think everyone should make the effort if for no other reason than it'll look bad if they get an underwhelming number of returns.

4) May 17 is the beginning of ABC's Upfronts meetings where sponsors commit ad dollars for the fall season - so these next two weeks should be HUGE ones for contacting the sponsors.

5) We're now in May Sweeps which is one of the bigger more important Sweeps periods. Be sure to support the soaps! (And keep tuned out of anything else ABC/Disney). Very crucial if you're in the Ratings system - but if you aren't, contact your local affiliates and cable companies to let them know why your viewing choices are as they are this month.
