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...

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- "All My Children" Fan Club President Debbie Morris went to her official Twitter page to alert fans that Trent Garrett, who plays Asher Pike on the ABC soap, is not leaving the soap.

Susan Lucci Reacts to Cancellation of ‘AMC’

Sunday, April 17, 2011 3:48 PM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- “It’s been a fantastic journey. I’ve loved playing Erica Kane and working with Agnes Nixon and all the incredible people involved with All My Children. I’m looking forward to all kinds of new and exciting opportunities.” That is the original statement Susan Lucci released to the press immediately following the announcement of the cancellation of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live."

Entertainment analysts and ardent fans have been asking that very question since reports surfaced that the premier star of the daytime drama format, Susan Lucci, apparently learned the news of "All My Children's" cancellation with fellow cast-mates and "One Life to Live" friends about fifteen minutes before the news was released to...
