  1. Even though none of the remaining soaps are very good (at least not consistently) but most of us can agree that their absence would not only leave a void but it would be sad, since this would mark the end of an era. This article that I read in the NY Times seems to speculate that a strike would mean the end of daytime soaps. The word the article uses is "death knell", to be precise. With a Hollywood Writers’ Strike Looming, Here’s What to Know I'm not sure whether the author is being dramatic and I don't want to sound like an alarmist or like I'm being melodramatic but I wonder what you all think about this? It was exactly 10 years ago (2007) that the last WGA strike occurred and within two years Guiding Light went off the air, the next year As The World Turns left the airwaves two years later there were more cancellations of soaps. I never thought about the aftermath of the WGA strike having any effect on those subsequent cancellations but is it possible that the strike could've been a factor, at all?
