      Happy Birthday SON. This really is the best soap message board. No crazy fans. Just fans who love soaps. But see them for what they have become. 9850b3c09cbfc7231081c06394c46322.gif

  6. Launched by two distinct individuals, one from Canada and the other from the United States long before Twitter and Facebook connected the world, today, October 8, marks the 18th anniversary of Soap Opera Network ("SON"), a haven for those passionate about the daytime genre, particularly its history and its future. Since its launch, SON has covered several soap highs and soap lows. In spite of the cancellations of such genre defining dramas as "Sunset Beach," "Port Charles," "Passions," "Guiding Light," "As the World Turns," "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" throughout the years we've been online, the website has continued to evolve and thrive. While we've gone through staff changes in recent years, we remain passionate about where our future lies. Thank you for following and sticking with us along on our journey. We hope to continue seeing you along the ride as we've got several great things coming your way soon.

  8. Personally, I do believe that Angelica McDaniel was a champion for soaps and was one of the last holdouts for the old guard in how things were done in television broadcasting in terms of daytime television on the big three networks. However, I am not shocked she was let go and I don't think there was much else for her to do at CBS. The network's reasoning for folding daytime into current programming is sound since it's already been done by ABC and NBC in years past and with traditional broadcasting being a dinosaur in today's TV/entertainment climate. Soaps have already been duking it out with the rest of TV in terms of awards recognition with their categories being folded to compete with all dramas at the DGAs, GLAAD not bothering to nominate them, the lack of interest in submission for a WGA by the soaps themselves. It's all about change. It's the way of the world. Right now, instead of competing with each other, the soaps, game shows and talk shows are competing against their overall profits individually and not in terms of what daypart they fall into. With streaming being ever more prominent, the soaps especially are leading the charge in online viewing habits. That's a good thing. That means that should broadcast transition to online even more, there is a place for that kind of programming. Heck, "Why Women Kill" on CBS All Access is a classic soap tale ala "Desperate Housewives" and it works online vs. broadcast because it's the type of show that streaming platforms need (soapy) to gain traction. Despite the faults of Prospct Park's management, "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" would have been perfect to transition online if they were canceled at any point in the last 6 months to a year. They were way ahead of their time from a business standpoint. Content notwithstanding.

  10. I actually see "The Talk" going before either "B&B" or "Y&R," honestly since that show was McDaniel's baby, ratings are WAY down and its creator, Sara Gilbert, is no longer at the helm on the day-to-day. I am sad that CBS Daytime as a division is no more, but in today's television climate it makes sense. If the CBS Daytime branding goes, which I don't expect it to, it won't be too much of a bad thing considering where we are in the entertainment world compared to 15 years ago (or whenever it was) when NBC got rid of NBC Daytime and five years ago when ABC got rid of ABC Daytime. Just my 2 cents...
  11. "The Bold and the Beautiful" is growing its audience and outpacing last year's performance in newly released ratings data. More The post ‘B&B’ Continues to Grow Its Audience appeared first on Soap Opera Network. Read More
  12. Angelica McDaniel is out as head of CBS Daytime after her position was folded into the current programming department, headed by Amy Reisenbach. ABC and NBC made similar decisions in recent years relating to their daytime programming. More The post Angelica McDaniel OUT!
