More bad news for daytime soap fans and the genre itself. The first reality show featuring daytime soap stars, E! Entertainment Television’s, Dirty Soap is not being renewed or picked up for a second season.
Dirty Soap cast mate Jenna Gering, wife of Days of our Lives and Venice star, Galen Gering tweeted her disappointment today stating, “Sot he word is that Dirty Soap is NOT being picked up for another season. Thanks to all of u who watched. You all have been so supportive!!!”
So what do you think was the issue for Dirty Soap not getting a second chance on life on television? Do you think the cable network did not put enough effort behind the series in terms of marketing? Do you think mainstream audiences just refuse to tune-in to anything connotated with the word, “soap”, even though the product to many was entertaining and interesting? Let us know your thoughts!
