Call in to speak with the host
After a 3 month hiatus Silas Kain returns tonight with deLIBERnATION. A lot has happened in entertainment, politics and business since we last met. We began the year promoting the web series “Fumbling thru the Pieces” and what we tried to do is show how a simple little web series is also a metaphor for every one of us. We’re all “fumbling through the pieces” of our own lives.
Tonight we’re going to discuss the latest happenings in the daytime programming. As ABC brings All My Children and One Life to Live to an end on their network, is there hope? Are we just spinning our wheels to keep a genre alive? Is there a formula out there which works? How does all of this relate to the “big picture”?
We will start tonight’s show with a recap of the events on the world stage and politics. It will be a quick review because we know the subject most of our listeners want to discuss. But in bringing those issues to the forefront, we’re going to show that connecting those dots may very well have everything to do with the crisis facing daytime programming today.
There are many items on the agenda tonight from the “fan” movements” to the actor reaction vacuum. Just what can we read into the silence of daytime actors? And just how “blind sided” were certain players? What can we do as viewers and consumers to turn the tide? One thing is clear: respect is a key issue. Soap actors never received the parity and respect they earned from their own peers. Soap viewers on the whole are subscribing to the notion that the majority of soap viewers are mindless lemmings who don’t have a coherent thought. Connect the dots. Look at the big picture.
All this and more on a 90 minute version of deLIBERnATION, tonight on BlogTalkRadio!
