Robin Strasser Reacts to Cancellation of ‘OLTL’

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Never at a loss for words, the "One Life to Live" grand dame takes to Twitter to speak out against the cancellation of the long-running ABC soap. Strasser, who for years has been remembered for her rather outspoken telephone hotline messages to fans, finally joined the popular social networking site last Friday, one day after ABC canceled both "OLTL" and sister soap "All My Children," in favor of new cooking and lifestyle programs "The Chew" and "The Revolution." After just four days on Twitter, she currently has nearly 4,500 followers. The veteran actress wasted no time in weighing in on ABC's decision, tweeting "Let's trade two iconic dramas for two untried cooker/realities? kill off hundreds of jobs in the process? delete protests? Diss-aster brew. Hanging in or hanging myself? All due respect: There is NO honor giving into some one else's bad program(ming). Respect/honor your...
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Thursday, April 14, 2011 is a day that will live in infamy for ABC soap fans as, in the blink of any eye, the network canceled long running serials "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." By the time they air their final episodes in September and January, respectively, a combined 84 years of drama will become nothing more than a piece of television history. The news certainly gave viewers of both soaps a lot of "Chew" on, prompting many of them to start a "Revolution" and shun the very network that helped give them more than four decades of memories from Pine Valley and Llanview. In this special edition of My View of Llanview, I will take a sentimental look at "One Life to Live" as it nears its abrupt, but nonetheless bittersweet, ending. As I set here writing this column, the weather outside my window...
After news broke earlier this evening that Hoover was pulling all of its advertising from the ABC Television Network on the heels of the networks decision to cancel "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," Soap Opera Network got word from a high ranking Disney official, speaking on condition of anonymity, that Hoover's decision would not only not change the networks mind about the cancellations, but that it would only hurt, not help, the soaps in their final months on the air from a financial perspective. According to the insider, ABC Daytime has been producing both soaps at a financial loss and the decision to bring on "The Chew" and "The Revolution" will allow ABC to bring in approximately 80% more revenue from the demise of each soap as it cost ABC between 30-40% less to produce a talk show than it would a soap opera.As we all...

People seem to think that boycotting ABC, sending soap to networks headquarters in New York and Los Angeles, etc will get ABC to change their minds about canceling the soaps. Unless you want the FBI on your butt, you will do no such thing. You watched enough soaps over the years to find a more constructive manner in dealing with this. Calling is a waste of time and energy as the network is deleting your messages and changing telephone #'s for their employees as fast as you hit a key stroke on your keyboard (for many, that isn't fast enough). Tuning out only gives you less time to tune in. If you find yourself seeking input from the 2-3 people that "boycotted" outside of "The Early Show" studios after "Guiding Light" and "As The World Turns" got canceled, you'll come across as much of a loon as you've been...
