CBS Protest Rally now on CNN


Recommended Posts

The rally we held outside CBS on April 16 is on now on the CNN website...I am proudly holding up a tee-shirt that says 'I'd Rather Be Watching "The Edge of Night."

Edge and ATWT both premiered on April 2, 1956 on CBS as the genre's first two half-hour soaps. We were also filmed by a Dutch TV camera crew.

Just type "cnn rally soap" in Google search box and see what pops up.

OMG! This is so damn embarrassing! And I am an out and proud soap opera fan. Meaning everyone in my life knows I watch daytime.

Jesus, and even "I" wouldn't do this to myself on national TV.

Well, yeah. The point of the search was to see this same thread appear in 578 other message boards.

And the CNN video... I just think it's sad, everything: 5 people rallying and the cancellation. But nothing you can do about it.

Yup. I've walked down the street in a Star Trek costume on my way to a convention but that...no just no.

Regardless, more power to them. Pick your battles and fight them 'til the end.

Guys, the guy posted the news he had a rally and you are all discussing how embarassing the rally is?

+1

I highly doubt that I would get my butt out there and do the same, but never say never, who knows how I'll feel upon AMC's and OLTL's cancellations. Some people choose to protest, others choose to snark it out on the net, both apparently useless but at least the protesters got some fresh air.

A lot of soap fans have a justifiable defeatist, "roll over and take it" attitude about the demise of soaps and when all the shows are gone and all the sites like this one are dead or revamped, we'll get on with our lives. But I do admire people who rally and fight, regardless of result, because if something isn't worth fighting for, then what did it really matter to you to begin with?

    • Can't wait!! Seasons 8-10 is very high praise indeed!
    • @CatI feel like Tamra was the missing piece of the puzzle, but this is a good set up for her to return next year. It felt like classic RHOC like seasons 8-10. They gave you everything, but with the elevation that Heather brought when she first joined. Even Emily and Gina felt right. It felt like no time had passed. I didn't miss or even think about Kelly Dodd.
    • Just so, so ridiculous! I've always wondered if Andy is really not into Latinas, especially ones with slight accents like Adriana. Even though all of us watching can perfectly understand Adriana and enjoy her Brazilian telenovela flair. There is no reason Adriana couldn't be a mojito-holder, and Martina Navratilova's wife (I mean, God bless, because Martina is a straight-up ICON), who barely appears in the trailer, couldn't be a FOH. Marysol, too, is like a tentpole figure whose PR business united all the women in the OG RHOMi. ITA that Marysol seems a lot more entertaining than she was on the original series. Back then, Mama Elsa dominated and Marysol seemed a lot shyer, more passive and sensitive. Since her mother's death, I imagine Marysol has had to come to terms with that and come into her own fabulousness. I always found it interesting that Marysol, Alexia and Adriana had an understanding (las cubanas + la brasileira) to the detriment of other friendships.   Thanks for the glowing review! I will catch up on it. Does it feel like familiar OC? I feel like OC lost some of its familiar OC magic in the last few seasons, so I'm excited about Heather returning. Obviously if Tamra popped up, it would be phenomenal! I'm just so glad the toxic, exhausting Kelly Doddlezal is no longer on the show. I can't overstate how much she was ruining the show for me.
    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
