    Post Bad News!

    Not sure if you've all heard this yet, but ABC has cancelled AMC and OLTL. I'm crushed!

    I don't know what to say. I truly wish some of the basic cable networks would pick up on doing soaps instead of running the same old shows over and over and over. I'd even settle for a 4-day week! I just need that continuing story fix.

    I hadn't heard this. I am going to be soapless. I used to watch Another World, then As the World Turns.. and have watched OLTL over 30 years.
    What is Soap Net going to do ?

    Soap Net is going off the air in Jan of 2012 as well. I had read that a while back.

    This just saddens me to no end. Like all of you, I grew up with these shows and now being in my late 40's, soaps have been such a big part of my TV viewing for most of my life. It's so sad that we are losing two more long-running shows. I wonder how much longer Days will be on?

    ABC is going with a cooking show and another lame idiotic talk show ? Really?
    They are going for the cheap fix and ignoring long time viewers. I know it's too much to ask.. but I wish OWN or some cable channel would pick up these shows. I, for one, will not be watching ABC daytime. Talk and cooking shows are a dime a dozen. Very sad about this turn of events.

    I heard last night that AMC will be ending in September and OLTL will end in January.

    I will not watch ANY daytime talk shows or game shows or news shows. I DVR practically everything I watch and FF commercials.

    I started soaps on the RADIO with my mom. I remember Guiding Light and Search for Tomorrow in black and white and only 15 minutes! I remember when ATWT went to one hour!

    I think the only clout we have is to NOT watch their daytime smutz.
    I don't know what year OL began. I didn't start with it right away. I think when Viki was married to Joe Rielly. I hope ABC at least does a nice book with the sl's and pictures like NBC did with Another World. I flipped through the AW book not long ago.
    I hadn't heard about SoapNet either. I changed cable companies a few years ago just to get SoapNet.
    I don't really watch any other soap. I kind of have half a clue on GH.. just
    from 10 or 15 minutes I might watch occasionally. It's pretty fuzzy though.

    Yea, some show called "The Chew"?! What an awful name for a show! I think I read that Dr. Oz's daughter will host it. And Tim Gunn will host the "make Over" show "The Revolution"...I like him, so I may tune that in, just to see what its about. But, its sad that shows that have had Loyal Viewers for close to 50 years are given 'the boot"!
