Long before ABC's Upfront presentation got underway at around 3:45 PM on Tuesday, May 17, when invited guests began scuttling into the Avery Fisher Hall, the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) looked to take attention off of the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) by promoting its new fall programming with a rotation of more than a dozen Grayline and CitySearch NYC buses that were filled with wide open spaces or a lack of passengers in this case. While the seats may have been empty, no one could miss the colorful brand making its presence known while its competitor seeks a piece of the $9.2 billion pie during a crucial television season that lies ahead for the Disney/ABC Television Group. Insert the NBC peacock now featured on billboards in newly stylized glossy graphics.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Brian Frons, President, Daytime, Disney/ABC Television Group (pictured right wearing sun glasses), went into the ABC Upfront on Tuesday, May 17 knowing he was the most hated man in television today. Frons inherited the title from former NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker and all it took was a bunch of protesting fans to get the message across as they booed the executive while he walked across the street from Lincoln Center to an ABC After party at the Atlantic Grill restaurant. So how does the man that canceled a collective 83-years of daytime drama respond to angry fans? With a chuckle of course!As the Soap Fans United protest was reaching its final half hour and industry movers and shakers made their way to various parties in and around New York City, daytime soap fans were surprised to see Frons walk right on by as they rallied on...
On Tuesday, May 17, fans of ABC's recently canceled "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" protested outside of the Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City as the ABC Television Network presented its 2011-2012 broadcast television schedule to its owned & operated stations, affiliates, advertising partners, and the dozens of press outlets gobbling up everything said during the networks upfront presentation. Joining protesting fans were Colleen Zenk (ex-Barbara Ryan, "As The World Turns"), Mimi Torchin (founding Editor in Chief of Soap Opera Weekly), and "One Life to Live's" Ilene Kristen (Roxy Balsom).

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Pardon me soap fans for being harsh, but It has now been more than a month since ABC canceled "All My Children" and "One Life to Live." It has been nearly two weeks since reports surfaced that "General Hospital" might be in danger of cancellation as well. Since the news broke on that awful Thursday afternoon, message boards and websites all around the world have been flooded with your comments. A failed protest on Tuesday, April 26 in New York City included police presence, but the Los Angeles protest outside of Disney's Burbank headquarters was a joke. Did you see the picture (it's the one on the right)? The LA protest was also attended by former "One Life to Live" star Catherine Hickland (ex-Lindsay Rappaport), who is the blonde pictured in the middle. I mean seriously people! If you have any desire to Save Your Soaps, the...
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Don't worry soap fans, ABC isn't creating another "The" show...at least none that we've heard of. However, there was a major clue right under our noses that the network was going to be canceling your favorite daytime soaps "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" just one day before the announcement was made. Beginning at 7:00 AM (unclear if it was eastern or pacific time) on Wednesday, April 13, the network posted the first images of "The Chew" crew on their website, ABC.com, along with a description of the series and a biography of the hosts.According to the posting, "The Chew," is described as "an innovative and groundbreaking daytime program co-hosted by a dynamic group of engaging, fun, relatable experts in food, style, and entertaining." The one-hour daily Talk show co-hosted by Mario Batali, Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, Michael Symon and Daphne Oz, debuts on Monday,...
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- After beginning her press tour in promotion of her new memoir "All My Life," Susan Lucci vehemently denied rumors of "All My Children's" demise as anything but and that said rumors were not coming from ABC. While ABC didn't publicly create the rumor, they sure didn't deny it either...except to Lucci and the cast members and crews at "AMC" and "One Life to Live" after the idea of the two being canceled escalated beyond the networks control in the press. So why did the network leave Lucci to look like a fool on national television for weeks, including on their own networks "Good Morning America," while secretly finalizing plans to launch "The Chew" and "The Revolution?" We may never know the answer to that question, but we can take a look back at the timeline of events leading up to the demise of a genre on the...
