In a brand new feature piece by John Berman and Steven Baker, “Tears in Soap City Starting to Look Real,” ABC News takes a look at the state of soap operas today. It will be the topic of conversation tonight on Nightline at 11:35PMEST. “AMC’s” star Susan Lucci and executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers participate in the piece, as does “OLTL’s” executive producer, Frank Valentini. Oh boy! I hope this does not send eveyone scrambling again, that soaps are dying and the end is near.
