You've heard all the jokes about "soap on a rope".  Of course, for younger viewers they may not get it.  That's OK.  For a little over 10 months ABC Daytime fans have been getting their soap rope jerked.  Tonight we explore the history of the spin since April 14, 2011 and how people have purposely dropped rumor bombs to throw soap fans off the right path.  For us it's no longer personal -- it is ALL business!

Whether you realize it or not, the fact is WE ARE GETTING NOTICED!  Two significant pieces in the New York Times plus the OLTL/AMC victory on the iVillage poll led to a segment on The Today Show.  We've talked with cable providers who have unequivocally stated that the latest SoapNET will be broadcasting is around April 18th.  So, we have PLENTY to discuss tonight as a cohesive movement going forward.  We have to get our acts together -- ESPECIALLY GH & DOOL fans. 

Tonight a clear, concise explanation of the purpose of the Soap Cable Channel Campaign and where we stand.  We'll also discuss the appeal of GH actors & crew to start tuning in to GH as the new team tries to archive a 2.0 in March.  Soap fans have the edge -- we just need to recognize it!  Unlike so many who proclaim the soap genre "DEAD" we refuse to accept the notion at all.  It seems the sentiment springs only from people who have an ax to grind with the genre itself and we all should be wary of people who would just as soon see the genre die than work toward reinvigoration! 

With the successes of Crystal Chappelle's Venice: The Series to the groundbreaking programming available on The SFN, we see a brilliant future for scripted serial programming both in broadcast and on line.  It takes creative minds with a vision of what the possibilities can be!  So, join the chat, hear what's up & make an impact!
