Well, it finally happened, Oprah Winfrey has just come forward in this just released video, after all the requests for her new OWN cable network to pick up One Life to Live and All My Children, to let the fans know under no circumstances will she be moving the soaps to her channel or attempting to save them.
At the end of her clip Oprah informs the viewers and the soap fans that, “If there was a dime left to be made from them on broadcast television, it would still be happening. All things come to an end. All things have their time. I will not be taking on the responsibility to revive an institution that, for all intent and all purpose, indicates that time has come for it to be over. Thank for you for believing I can save them, but I really can’t.” Watch the Video after the jump, and let us know what you think of Oprah’s statement!
So what do you think of Oprah’s thoughts on the state of the genre? She makes some valid points, although hard to hear. But perhaps the delivery could have been a little less terse!
