344 February 1st, 2012 Payback’s a Bitch! “The Revolution” sinks even further in the ratings!

Courtesy/ABC

One Life to Live fans who have been desperately clamoring to get the show’s replacement, The Revolution kicked to the curb could get their wish if the horrific ratings for the new lifestyle/makeover show continue in this downward spiral out of the gate.

According to TV Media Insights, the second week of The Revolution was pretty dreadful and is down 28% of its lead-in The Chew and even more importantly down 43% down from its time period a year ago, “Hello One Life to Live, people”

Here is what TV Media Insights had to say with its complete analysis of the situation! “The next set of Live Plus Same Day data from Nielsen (which includes total viewers) will not be available until Thursday.  But based on the metered markets to-date in week two (through Tuesday, Jan. 31), critically panned new ABC daytime talker The Revolution has sunk further.  Using the weighted household averages, the Monday and Tuesday telecasts of The Revolution this week is averaging a mere 1.3 rating/4 share in the 56-metered markets.  Compared to the week one average (1.5/ 5, Jan. 23-27), this is a loss of 13 percent.  Keep in mind that the week one total viewer average for The Revolution was already a subpar 1.68 million viewers (which was off by 37 percent from One Life to Live one year earlier).  So, unless there is an uptick, week two will be lower.

This week to-date, The Revolution is down by 28 percent from the lead-in average (1.8/ 6), and 43 percent from the time period average in January 2011 (2.3/ 6).  Next up at TVMI: the week two total viewer results for The Revolution.

So what would ABC next plan be if this show tanks?  Keep General Hospital from cancellation?  Bring back One Life to Live?  Or, fill the time slot with another show with a bunch of hosts that no one cares about?  Let us know your thoughts?  We know you have something to say about this one!

    Abc made a boo-boo replacing our soaps with reality tv. Hopefully The Revolution and Chew will be taken off the air and GH will be moved up to the 2pm hr.

    Bring back One Life To Live I think would be the right thing to do. The Revolution is the worst show I have ever seen, They really made a big mistake. The ceo of abc WHAT WAS HE THINKING!!!!

    Maybe ABC can turn one of thier nighttime pilots(Nashville & Americana)into a daytime soap instead.

    No. Bringing back OLTL is more economical and makes more sense. Primetime soaps were never designed for five days a week.

    bring back our soaps OLTL and AMC!!!

    Susan M. replied

    Yes, makes a lot of sense to bring back our beloved soap ‘ ONE LIFE TO LIVE!” I miss it soooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sharon replied

    any shows in the amc & oltl time slot will be boycotted by us soap fans, we will either boycott abc till we get our soaps back, or only watch gh on abc and nothing else, and laugh when we see the ratings fall for non-soap shows on abc.

    melody replied

    We will continue to reject anything less than an acknowledgement of ABC/Disney’s mistake and putting One Life to Live back where it belongs, are they getting it yet???

    Marcia White replied

    Let’s rally and keep writing ABC programming to bring our soaps back. Please go to this link and write a note. There is power in numbers, let’s stay united and make this happen! Thank you. Please pass the link on to others.

    Don’t agree at all with Rich’s comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rich replied

    OK,let’s hear how you all would bring back AMC/OLTL since ABC SOLD the rights to Prospect Park. I don’t see ABC getting those rights back anytime soon. Nor would PP be willing to sell them to Agnes Nixon.
    Then there’s the cast. Most of whom have relocated to LA(Kirsten Alderson,for example,will be playing Starr on GH for the next three years. Unless,of course,ABC pulls GH in favor of Katie Couric.)or have become involved in other projects. So,again…just HOW do we get our shows back?

    Susan M. replied

    There is no harm in hoping OLTL comes back.. It should be put on another cable channel..This what I have been saying all along!!!!!!!!!!!!! They gave up so easily on putting OLTL either on line or back on thr T. V….. They didn’t try hard enough!!!!!!!!!!! Gave up on the first try..As the saying goes if you don’t suceed at first, try,try, AGAIN!!!!!!!! They didn’t fight hard enough for OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!! I really mean all of this!!!!!!!!!! It really upsets me a lot!!!!!!!!!!!! I have no favorite daytime program to watch anymore.. I fell very passionate about all this!!!!!!!!!! I really love watching OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s All !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Terri replied

    Rich, where have you had your head stuck lately?? ABC/Disney and PP are all owned by the same people. They have not released or sold the rights to anyone that is not within their domain. If they had we would have our shows back on another network channel. The cast would gladly go back if OLTL and AMC was picked up by another network. They have to make a living too and they are just taking what they can get until the show makes its comeback. I as Susan M and millions of others have all joined in this fight for our soaps and we have been heard loud and clear, they no longer believe that we will eventually get over this. NOT!!!! What are you doing besides gripping?? If you can’t be loyal to the cause then we don’t need people like you spouting negativity. You need to join in the fight or just keep your negative comments to yourself. You must not be a very loyal fan if you think prime-time can take the place of our daytime. Never in a millions years! It would fall like the Revolting is now. We need to work on bringing down the Chew also. I am with you Susan. We all are except Rich!!!!

    Susan M. replied

    What rich commented about putting Nashville & Americana … Possibly putting one these on daytime instead of primetime…..This what I disagree with………Are you crazy??????????? Daytime programming BELONGS TO OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!! Not primetime soaps…….. Which I will never watch!!!!!!!!!! I totally disagree with Rich on this one… OLTL FAN FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Daytime is reserved for OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get It (Rich)!!!!!!!!!!

    Reply

    Rich replied

    Wow! OK,i’ll ask again. Since ABC shows no apparent interest in bringing back a show they longer own because Prospect Park can’t get thier as together and is keeping both shows hostage,how do you propose they bring them back? NBC & CBS won’t do it. Oprah won’t do it. FOX? Please,no way!

    So instead of trashing my idea,how about coming up with ways to get the cast members back from LA and various other places in the country/world they may be and get these shows back on TV.

    scott replied

    ABC would never go back to OLTL because they do not want to be proven wrong. Another is what Rich is saying. Even though I miss OLTL and wish it would come back. I sadly admit OLTL is over I would almost be interested in a new daytime soaps but I think I would have to be asured that it would be on for more than 1 year. The new show could in fact be developed with the bucs since the mannings are gone for now. But I pretty sure ABC will not add a new soap only another disappointing talk show. I still trying to understand with 50 or so hours a week why we need 30 or more of those hours being talk shows…

    Crystal replied

    ABC daytime does not belong to OLTL anymore. I would love for OLTL to return but realistically, it’s not going to happen. Like Rich said ABC sold the rights to Prospect Park and and most of the cast has relocated to LA. The Chew and Revolution’s tanking ratings might save General Hospital from cancellation but it won’t bring back AMC or OLTL.

    Susan M. replied

    My previous comment on 2/2 at 8: 22 p. m. I kniow ABC won’t put AMC or OLTL back on !!!!!!!! But, as I was saying all along about putting OLTL & AMC on another channel on the t. v. Maybe some other channel will sponser our beloved soaps………..If Agnes Nixon can buy back the rites from Prospect Park!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prospect Park is useless for OLTL & AMC.. They aren’t going to do anything w/OLTL or AMC……….. They have proven that already!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe some other channel will see they would be an asset to them… Realize OLTL is top notch & that it got a raw deaL on ABC!!!!!!!!! That’s what I think about the whole situation!!!!!!!!! ALWAYS WILL BE A OLTL FAN!!! This soap will be very difficult to replace… Forget that crap they have on now (The Revolution) Doesn’ t fill OLTL shoes by a long shot!!! And it never will !!!!!!

    barbara t replied

    rich,this is a question to get answered by 1loveabcsoaps or heather,but abc does own the rights to all my children and one life to live.and they can choose to give them to agnes nixon so she can go to another network,if p p would have got these soaps on line,they would have to pay abc alot of money,if you want to help go to facebook, then to swan there is a group of people trying to get agnes nixons rights back and so far abc is not listening,also rumor has it that p p may have a announcement to make this week.what it is about no one knows ,could just be a rumor.stay tuned.

    Barbara Schuima replied

    No way OLTL was on 40 plus years for a reason.

    Prospect Park don’t own the rights to OLTL. They just kinda leased them. The contract was very strange. Giving ABC the right to make a profit if PP was able to profit off of OLTL and AMC.

    The LAST thing we need is another talk show or reality show! There are enough of those! How about real acting and scripts?!! Yes more people work and are not home during the day but that is no excuse to cancel soaps. I work and was watching the soaps on TiVo. I miss AMC and OLTL. I miss OLTL the most even though I had watched AMC longer. The story lines were great and I would LOVE it if it was brought back and know a lot of others who feel the same way!

    OMG!!! I hope so too!!! I’m hoping that GH is a temp holding pattern for the few OLTL actors and somehow the show can come back. IT’s a long shot, but that’s my wish. I miss OLTL more than ever b4. If it does return I will watch faithfully like i’ve always had. Fingers crossed!!!! We need some good soap news!!!! As the actors have said there’s nothing like soap fans!! Kassie DePaiva is great at keeping the fans posted.

    Kathy replied

    I agree. Bring back OLTL. However, if OLTL were coming back, it wouldn’t be Kassie making the announcement. It would come from the execs. Most likely, it has something to do with her stint on GH. Interesting….

    Gail replied

    True, it probably has to do with GH. I still wish they would revive OLTL. It may not be too late…if they do it before everyone gets other jobs it would be awesome.

    Karen replied

    I saw on twitter that Starr *Kristen Alderson and John (Michael signed a 3 yr contract with GH so maybe Kassie got one too.

    Susan M. replied

    My last comment was GOODBYE TO THE CHEW & MOST OF ALL THE REVOLUTION!!!!!!

    Todd replied

    All Kasie’s announcement was is that she’ll be on HSN Sunday…

    Elhu replied

    Thanks for that info Gail !!! I am guessing that Kassie is probably making an announcement about her work on General Hospital. Whatever the announcement is though, I am sure it will be something we will look forward to. As for the ratings of The Revolution, I think we all saw that coming. I have never, and will never watch it, but the trailers promoting it are uninteresting, so why would the show be any better!

    I’m so happy that show is tanking. Very proud of the OLTL fans who have stuck together to show ABC we mean business!!! I want more than anything to see OLTL revived but I am thinking, with the writers and cast already moving on, the hopes for that are dim. I imagine they will move GH to the 2-3 slot EST and put the sure to flop Katie Couric talk show at 3 pm .Really wish The Chew’s ratings were just as bad!!!

    Barbara, you are so right. Soap fans are loyal! We pass on our love for the soaps to our children. It’s a family affair. And ABC didn’t think that through. They also lost me as a viewer. I miss OLTL, but I have started to watch The Young and the Restless and it’s not too bad. I will not watch any talk stuff, and I am done with ABC, which, as the home to my soaps was always the channel of my choice.
    But, that’s loyalty!!!!

    I love the fact that these two new ABC shows are sinking faster than the Titanic!! Unfortunately for we, the millions of devoted fans of AMC and OLTL, these two shows may have been off the air for too long now. I mean, does ANYONE really think that the actors and actresses from those wonderful soap operas have been simply sitting around in the hopes of having their shows resurrected?? A few are already being seen elsewhere and I’m sure that many others already have new things in the works. So, how can they bring back any show that is missing too many of its key players? I have hoped and prayed each and every day they I would see see them again. But, realistically, I now feel that the most we may hear is an apology from ABC to all of the fans of these two institutions. Sadly, I believe we have seen the last of All My Children and One Life to Live.

    Yes they were destroyed in December.

    Catherine Hickland (Lindsay) wanted to buy them. But ABC had already disposed of them.

    MBmomof3 replied

    thanks for the info Heather. I guess I always thought if PP really intended to continue with OLTL and AMC they would have made a deal to purchase the sets from ABC. The fact that they destroyed the sets only furthers my belief that PP never really intended to produce the shows and it was all a smokescreen to quiet the soap fans until the shows were out of production. I don’t know anything about show business, but I find it ironic that ABC/Disney would believe that fans that have been so loyal for so long would just go away quietly. They really underestimated the viewing audience. Soap Nation Speaks!

    PD Miles replied

    PP actually did purchase the sets from both shows, after the deal fell through, ABC had them destroyed.

    barbara t replied

    thats a good question,I remember when ryans hope was canceled and they gave the bar to another soap,I dont remember which one ,heather ,was it destroyed or dismantled ?sometime the sets are sold,good grief I cant stand the thought that pine valley and landview are all over the place or that someone had a big bonfire, and abc/disney had roasted marsh mellows ,say it isnt so.

    Reply

    MBmomof3 replied

    Thanks for the clarification. I thought i had read somewhere that PP purchased the sets for both shows, but then later read that ABC destroyed them. I still believe this was all a farce from the get-go to quiet the soap fans. Anyway, if ABC destroyed the sets “when the PP deal fell through” who now owns the rights to these shows? Does PP still have the rights or does ABC? I ask because I really want to target my messages to anyone with some ownership over the potential futures of these iconic shows. While I’d love to see them return to TV, I’d be happy if I could access them online, cable or as future movies or books. There are so many possibilites for them to be successful. They have a HUGE fanbase already. I don’t see why anyone would be so shortsighted to throw away these shows and their millions of fans when they could easily be reformatted and produced more cost-effctively or in other media formats.

    Heather replied

    ABC still own the rights. ABC never sold the rights to PP. They had just licensed them to PP. Even if AMC/OLTL would have live on with PP, ABC would have still gotten some royalties.

    It is extremely unlikely that ABC will sell the rights of the soaps to Agnes Nixon or anyone else for that matter. Licensing the soaps, no problem. But selling them outright, fat chance. Even if the soaps are no longer in production , ABC probably still has plans for them such as releasing them on DVDs like P&G is currently doing with ATWT/GL or syndicating them internationally like Sony is currently doing with their soaps.

    MBmomof3 replied

    OK that makes sense that ABC leased the rights and would want to retain ownership, but that’s really messed up. ABC thinks these shows are losers, but they don’t want anyone else to have them, and they destroyed their sets just in case a viable offer comes down the pike. I really believe that the shows could have been retooled (One Life to Live 2.0 per Allison’s script) either for web production, primetime, telenovella, made for tv movies, etc. It would have been nice to have the original sets, especially the iconic Lord library, Angel Square, LaBoule and so on. They could have whittled the cast down, maybe rotated them with AMC and GH (even show AMC Mondays, The Spew Tuesday, GH Wednesday, The Revolting Thursday, OLTL Friday) Anything but completely dismantle and destroy it before trying other alternatives. At ABC.com OLTL hasn’t been gone but a few weeks and it looks like it never existed! Yet they still have a message board for Lost? How long ago did that show end? It’s like they think that destroying anything related to AMC or OLTL we’ll all just forget the last 43 years existed. “Oh, I guess my entire life was just a dream sequence” ABC’s lack of appreciation for their talent, crew and viewers after so many years of loyalty just shows how out of touch they are in their ivory Disneyland towers!

    I’m still not sure why ABC thought woman would want to watch how to cook and what to eat and then go right into letting us know what we should look like and what to wear etc….this IS NOT what woman want especially coming from men and people who have no reason at all to be on TV…we want AMC and OLTL…we want to sit down for 3 hrs whether in real time or DVR or Soapnet and watch our family and friends go thru their retched lives…THIS IS what women want even men….I would like to know how the SPEW has been doing and I would really like to know in general how ABC is doing as a network since they pissed off sooo many people…I can honestly say I watched alot of ABC it was the main station in my home…it has only been on now for GH…as a true soap fan I HAVE given up on Ellen and DWTS and my Wednesday nites…it’s really sad and maybe I’m not making a big difference but I do feel better knowing that I was faithful for 40+ yrs to my stories and I can be faithful in never putting ABC on in my house again…I have 7 TV’s and no-one in my home can watch anything that has to do with Disney/ABC and that was given up alot for my kids because they love ABC Family…and it’s just not allowed any more…you know the saying “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature” well it’s not nice to PISS OFF Soap Fans…..

    No its not nice Cherle. Soap Fans are very strong. We are a sea of people. Though you don’t make a dent in the ratings since its all in the Neilens box which is randomly placed in homes. I googled after Oprah said its just not viewed according to the ratings. But I dropped ABC 99% I do like my Bachelor and as far as GH. In 2 weeks John, Starr signed a 3 yr contract with GH and maybe Todd and Blair will be next. So at least carry on the story line. ABC knows they messed up and this is suppose be a bandaid. I’ll take a bandaid. But I want a full recovery! Back in the day we sung.”I WANT MY MTV” well GUESS WHAT ABC “WE WANT OUR SOAPS!”

    Lori, you are right. I have watched many of the shows abc has on their network. Once Upon a Time looks like it’s going to be a pretty good show. But I am not watching. I was going to give The RIVER a chance. But not now. I am not going to get involved with any of the shows on abc. Not until they make some kind of reconciliation with the soaps the have cancelled. If they don’t want the soaps or their viewers they need to release the rights so we can watch them somewhere else. Then and only then will I consider watching anything on abc again.

    I agree with @Cherie. I feel like this was a terribly shortdsighted business decision, based on executives relying way too much on studies and focus groups designed by people in the business of being in business with these executives. If ABC wants to justify cutting costs at the expense of customer loyalty, than that isn’t going to go unnoticed at a Disney board meeting. Someone, somewhere, is in charge of protecting the Disney brand from just this kind of loud, vocal, annoyed and fiercely loyal customer base. Someone is going to get fired who ISN’T Brian Frons. Because they did NOT consider what several million people is worth in this fragmented day and age. Maybe it costs the production arm of ABC less money per day, but at what cost in terms of potential ancillary revenues? The longer we’re out here, pissed, more sophisticated than they thought and more business savvy than they realized, more heads will roll. If my job is to tell you that you need to put on more reality shows, then that is what I am going to say, even if I don’t tell you what happens as a result. Lazy, sloppy business practices by out of touch, desperate corporate whores who have NO IDEA what viewers really want are to blame for this.

Okay, Lucci probably makes a ton from that show. But why couldn’t they just cut it down to a half hour we would have been able to handle that instead of shoving a talk show about weight loss and self esteem.

    Bringing back OLTL makes the most sense. I already KNEW this show wouldn’t fly. All the way back to the Richard Simmons days, people are just not that invested in someone else’s weight loss journey. I’m still mystified as to how “The Chew” has even stayed alive. Unlike other cooking shows (which I watch avidly on the cooking network’s where they belong) you hardly ever see the dish prepared from start to finish. You still have to go online and get the ingredients but also have to figure it all out. At least on the other shows you see it so some of it is retained. Might as well buy a cookbook for all the worth this show is about. I think they should can this garbage too and bring AMC back, get some decent writers and hire the out of work actors back.

    This show is going to continue to go down in rating and I am laughing the whole time. OLTL needs to come back. We all miss it and if it is between staring at the four walls during The Chew and The Revolution or watching them; I pick the walls. At least the walls will tell something that is more useful and informational. These shows are just another set of recycled shows. If ABC thinks these are one of a kind then maybe they need to watch The View. Same set up different reasons to waste the viewers time. The View is based off of political and current events which is the first show of its kind and decently good, The Chew is based off of crappy food which we can watch the Food Network, and The Revolution is based off of information that is common sense (yes hats go on your head, high heels make your legs look longer duh, and a host that has never actually been a designer just held a microphone). Wow ABC I thought you said that people wanted to waste two hours out their day to watch these replacements for two soaps that never should have been cancelled; I guess the viewers should never underestimate a room full idiots. Bring back OLTL it the only way you will save any hope of daytime rating or watch how PBS will take daytime rating with Barney the Dinosaur.

No one in my home watches anything on ABC except for when I have GH tuned in. ABC/D will you every apologize and admit what a HUGE mistake you made in taking these shows off the air? More importantly you owe all Soap Fans an even BIGGER APOLOGY for dismising us like our feelings and likes weren’t important. We’ve been telling everyone and anyone who read our posts, e-mails, and listened to our phone calls, we wanted our stories and not more of the same old crap of talk shows, self-help , cooking etc. I really, really hope this proves to TPTB that Soap Fans matter and that we don’t give up. BRING BACK OUR SHOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Even though some of the characters have moved on to other things, It’s a soap, they can write around them until they can return. Mention their names every so often to keep reminding people. Gosh, it would be great.I also want to mention that I watched susan Lucci tonight on Hot in Cleveland. She was absolutely terriffic!!!! It was like “old times” for a half hour , except I kept thinking I’d love to see Jack, Kendall,Tad, David etc. At any rate, I thought she looked lovely and because she played herself and talked about losing her job because AMC was cancelled it just made it so poignant regarding what happened to her personally and to the Fans. I think she would do very well in a comedy series. ABC/D you have lost so many talented actors.

    It would be awesome to bring back OLTL, but it is only wishful thinking. Not only has the cast moved on, but so have the writers. While I think it is cool that so many of you hold out hope for that, it isn’t going to happen. Another new show will eventually move in whatever time slot. Believe me, I miss OLTL as much as the next fan, but something that ABC considers new and fresh will be thought of and eventually it will catch some kind of audience. What makes me angry is that the ratings system is so flawed and antiquated and if it wasn’t for that AMC and OLTL may have never been cancelled. It’s time for a new way to track ratings. While I don’t know what that could be, I do know that with the way that technology is, it couldn’t be too hard to get more accurate ratings.

    This is not a surprise. People that watched ABC didn’t watch it because it was ABC they watched it because they had some quality shows on in the afternoon. If people really wanted to watch cooking and makeover shows they would have been turning on cable stations NOT ABC. To make matters worse in this situation is the way Brian Frons said their viewers could be trained like dogs to watch new programming. I for one found that very offensive and may have over looked it as one jerks opinion ,but ABC/Disney never even gave a apology for that comment. So I have found other soaps to watch on CBS and NBC the only time I acknowledge that ABC exists is when General Hospital airs and if that is cancelled I will have no reason to tune that channel in. I think ABC needs to do some big time damage control before it is way to late. Their ratings have even fallen in prime time over all this. Are they really making more money producing those cheaper shows or in the long run have they cost themselves big time.

    Unfortunately as much as I love OLTL and agree with all of you… I think getting it back in NYC with everyone is not going to happen… however if we all stay loyal to GH… maybe we can get more of our OLTL characters and/or actors over to the GH canvas and maybe it will give more longevity to GH!!! Please stay loyal to GH! I am still hoping OLTL can be picked up by someone…just not ABC/Disney. Besides we would want it to be done by someone or some network that cared and saw the value in bringing it back to all of us!

    I use to watch abc from 9am thru 4pm before AMC was cancelled. I’ve since stopped watching all daytime abc shows except for the 3-4 pm slot. If GH gets cancelled I will only watch the few evening shows that I now watch. If abc wants to regain the viewers it has list I suggest they rethink their Soap cancellations and bring them back. They will see a jump in their ratings.

    Give the viewers what they want. You now know it’s NOT another talk show. That’s what a radio is for.

    I just think if The Revolting Revolution continues its downward spiral into the rock it crawled out from under that ABC will just replace it with more cheaply made talk/reality garbage.

    I think the only way AMC or OLTL will EVER be resurrected is for Agnes Nixon to take them to another network. I think ABC has washed their hands of them … to their detriment (but not their wallet).

    I’ve switched to CBS’s “Bold & Beautiful” and “The Young and Restless” to fill AMC’s 1 pm slot. Each are 1/2 hour. Does anyone know if ABC ever considered 1/2 hour for AMC and OLTL to cut costs. Especially if one of their excuses was that it was too expensive to do a 5 day, 1 hour show compared to the reality c**p they left us with? I know it’s not perfect, but it’s better than nothing.

    If ABC would have promoted AMC and OLTL the way they promote the Spew and the Revulsion these shows would have climbed in the ratings. The two replacements are constantly promoted on Soapnet, on ABC 24/7 and during GH. It was horrid the way they promoted the Chew during AMC. Like having your present wife have to cook for your future wife. And then they did the same during OLTL- promoting the Revolution. These replacements are cheap garbage that is not needed. There are plenty of lifestyle, makeover and cooking shows all over the tube. Give us back our soaps, or help PP sell them to a network that will appreciate them. Maybe the one that is bringing back Dallas, I think it’s Bravo.

    ABC needs to do what any smart business would do–cut their losses and move on with what works. Remember when Coke tried to change its formula? It was a disaster and they went back to the original. The 2 replacement shows are tanking, especially The Rrrrrrr. They should both be cancelled; AMC and OLTL should be returned either in full form, combination or even 1/2 each. Anything to get them back; GH should be retained. With better writing, it can regain the loyal viewers it had as well.

    ABC’s Daytime line up is tanking and it’s all because of them not listening to their viewers, we have told them for months that we did not want reality shows replacing our soaps but in their arrogance they refused to listen and now they’re suffering the consequences. Maybe next time they will listen to their viewers.

    I refuse to watch either The Chew or The Revolution, there are already tons of shows like this on many networks as it is, we don’t need any more. If I wanted to watch a cooking show I’d watch the Food Network or Rachel Ray & if I wanted to watch a weight loss I’d watch The Biggest Loser on NBC. ABC needs to come out and admit that they made a HUGE mistake and bring AMC & OLTL back on the air ASAP!!

    Seems like a “no-brainer” to me, bring All My Children and especially One Life to Live back!
    ABC/Disney will lose more than we, the viewing public will, since we will get used to other programs, different networks; they will not recapture the audience they lost regardless of any new programming changes, however if they bring the “soaps” back, not only past viewers will come back, but everyone who has wondered during the last months what the big fuss is all about. ABC/Disney will come out of it as a corporation which cares about public opinion, and is willing to admit to their poor choices, it would be a great model for our youth about the “big” people caring about the “little” people, and the power of public opinion and the democratic way where people CAN bring about changes.

    I hope that ABC is smart enough to bring back the soaps. Look guys, if it really is a money issue. Why not cut the shows back to 30 minutes? Yeah, the fans will not like it. But faced with not having the soaps all together, I think they would be reasonable. Also, when things get better money wise, you can always go back to the 1 hour format. Anyway, it is something to think about. But the smart thing to do is BRING BACK ALL MY CHILDREN, ONE LIFE TO LIVE, AND KEEP GENERAL HOSPITAL. Although, by now you may have a problem getting all the same actors back.

    All of the viewers of One Life to Live tried to tell ABC this was a big mistake to cancel their highest rated drama.

Then ABC can watch all of daytime viewers return to them and their rating go sky high. Big question is will ABC/Disney listen this time to their former viewer or not?

    I too saw it on the We Love Soaps website. It looks like a legit “casting call” if you will seeking “upscale men and women 21+” to fill seats for up to 4 hours for 2 tapings for $30. Can you believe this? Soap fans would gladly PAY THEM to see our soaps. Geesh!

    The Revolution show is deemed to be a failure. If ABC doesn’t want to bring back One Life to Live, the least they can do is replace The Revolution by General Hospital this fall.

    ABC is trying way too hard with The Revolution. Paying 30$ to assist the show is plain ridiculous and won’t have any positive impact on the ratings of the show. I leave in New Jersey, not far from NYC, meaning not far from where The Revolution is taped. Maybe I should consider taking the 30$ and attend The Revolution just out of curiosity to see what in the world is so special about this show that has replaced OLTL. By doing this, not only will I get paid, but also I won’t give ABC the satisfaction of giving ratings to The Revolution for feeding my curiosity need.

    Hey ABC…here is another idea if your listening. Cancel the Revolution. Give that hour to the soap fans and do AMC, OLTL, and GH on cycles. It could run like the housewives on bravo. When one finishes a 13 week run, the other one starts. Storylines would move at a quicker pace. Leaving us with cliffhangers like the OLTL finale would make the viewers come back to see how it would unfold. I rather have my OLTL for an hour but I am willing to compromise so we can have our soaps. Do the right thing ABC.

    A half hour episode costs almost as much as an hour episode because of salaries to cast and crew. If the Revulsion is cancelled they should consider bringing back One Life to Live and have some Pine Valley residents move to Llanview. Most people who watched one watched the other and you would get the combined audience of people who only watched one or the other. Then if it does well they could “spin” AMC back off on its own down the road. Because some actors from both shows have now committed themselves with other projects this would allow for a full cast of one combined show. Their crossover storylines have always worked well so I think this would work. I know i would watch it.

    The ABC (and CBS!) boycotting continues on in my household! Every afternoon at 2:00PM (EST)….my two TVs go dark and there’s TOTAL silence! I don’t even let the replacement shows begin! I mean, it’s a literal click of the OFF button right at 2:00 and I feel great doing it! ‘Reminds me of the thrill of voting! I’m casting my choice NOT to support these stupid networks.

    It’s hard NOT having a soap to “fill the afternoons” in that timeframe, but so be it! Losing OLTL ?…. was absolutely the last straw.

    ABC is too arrogant to give in, though. They’re gonna keep right on offending viewers to the bitter end. We’re gonna be reading about all kinds of other shenanigans behind the scenes at ABC–trying to fix this great BIG fiasco mess they’ve made.

    (Oh, but hang on fellow soap fans! We’re gonna be in for even more good “last laughs” too! Even if GH gets axed, which I predict, the joy of seeing ABC daytime ratings plummet is obnoxiously sweet revenge, isn’t it? teeee heeeee heeeee heeee)

    So let ABC enjoy their CHEW and REVOLUTION……..meaningless, wasted air time.

    But that’s okay, you know. After all, they’re “saving all kinds of money producing this alternative crappy dribble.”

If they had any sense whatsoever, they would apologize for what they’ve done, change their minds about taking away SoapNet and find a way to bring back both shows, even if they had to combine the two into one show because most of the people are probably no longer available. I would certainly watch “All Our Lives”… which could alternate back and forth between Pine Valley and Llanview (we already know the cities are close together, so it’s really not that much of a stretch)…I would take ANYTHING to get back my friends in those two neighboring Pennsylvania towns…I miss them all SO much!! :(

Bring back AMC (back home to NYC where it belongs) and OLTL, keep GH at 3:00. Keep replacement #3, but if you have such high hopes for her, she should do just fine at 4:00 (Oprah’s old time slot in syndication). Sell replacement #1 into syndication.

They haven’t given the Revultion the time of day since that post. No promotion on their website like they give Live with Kelly, Ellen, or even all of the Judge shows. Yes, contact your local affiliate. They make their money through local advertising. They’ve got to be feeling the pinch…

    OLTL was a constant. Viki, Blair, Dorian and Bo were always there for me to peek in on their lives … always changing, yet always the same.

    Viki was a class act, and provided inspiratoin for us all to improve upon every aspect of our lives. I miss you Viki the most. Maybe we’ll see you in Eterna………………

    Yes it was a fantasy, but one that drew me in everyday. It was compelling, humorous and sometime thought provoking. But OLTL was always entertaining. And I enjoyed the entertainment and bought products from the sponsors of the show. Not anymore.

    ABC – what were you thinking? I haven’t watched your stupid programming in these last three weeks. There are millions more just like me. Hope you see it in your ratings. And don’t forget, we soap fans warned you. .

    I couldnt have said that better myself,abc has to go down,for murdering our soaps and thinking of canceling general hospital,and can you believe they have to pay people 30 dollars to sit in the audience for 4 hours.I cant deal with the ads for those shows ,there is no way I am sitting with a group of idiots screaming and clapping every time one of those hosts says something stupid.abc shoud have listened to what we had to say, kill our soaps, we dont watch your pathetic blabber mouth shows ,or anything else on your network.abc should have gave a dam on how the soap fans would feel after what they have done to our shows,did they really think we would stay and watch these shows ?not in a million years .

    If they bring back one, both or a hybrid of the two soaps I will watch BUT they have lost my respect. I would like to see the shows back. If they need more money then sell the rights to show different items by their brand name. example: Everyone drinking Coke and showing the brand. That should be worth something to someone.

If ABC has any brains at all, they would cancel the horrible shows, THE CHEW & THE REVOLUTION, and put AMC & OLTL back, and then viewers would be happy, and start to watch ABC programs again. Seems like such a simple solution, and a win win for everyone. I can’t understand why this is so hard for the morons at ABC to understand! Obviously it was not brains that got them their jobs at ABC, so it must have been money! Because I can’t comprehend how someone so stupid can hold this sort of job at ABC. They must have paid big bucks to have that job!

    I think that ABC should bring back One Life To Live. It is a good soap and the public likes to be entertained and not talked to. The viewers had voiced their opinions before and nobody listened. If we want to watch a talk show there are many like this one on other stations. Personally I never liked talk shows. This station should offer variety and I’m clearly seeing that all they want to do is offer the same types of shows-talk shows. Boring!!! I’m not a fan of GH but they are talking about replacing this soap with yet another boring talk show. I’m sick of this crap. Maybe someday they will run out of people to make over and we can be entertained again.

    Unite through the ABC boycott and write the wayward ABC executives. Who dreams up things like the Chew? A show about food, half the people on the show are way overweight. That sends the right message to the public about eating healthy? I could never tolerate the commercials for that show and I never watched it. Now they Revolution show is paying people $30 to sit in the audience in an attempt to gain viewership? ABC, have you gone mad? Correct the poor decisions to cancel the soaps; the head exec that made the decision is out of ABC now. Turn things around for us loyal viewers. This is an opportunity!

    From time to time P.P. (Prospect Park) still comes up in discussion here, but I’m coming around to the notion that the entire premise of “Prospect Park” was a ruse (ie. HOAX) to just thwart attention from the groundswell of public outcry which ABC subsequently faced upon cancelling AMC and OLTL. ‘Got to admit they had us all going there for awhile, didn’t they?

    No, P.P was a cruel hoax for the fans and even for the two shows’ cast, crew, and staff. Had “their plan” really been plausible to begin with?….then it would have HAPPENED.

    But, it didn’t.

    No. IMO, there never was any real serious effort whatsoever to save these two cancellled soaps. P.P. now seems as nothing more than a publicity stunt (likely contrived by ABC.)

    Talk about adding insult to injury!

    I think so to ,and if abc is responsible for there little head games they played with us ,it just makes me want to annoy them more with phone calls ,e mails and boycotting there crappy shows which I will continue to do.I still believe that abc knows they made a mistake ,when you have to put ads all over the place to pretty much beg for people to come and sit in there audience for 4 hours ,I think its safe to say that abc/disney is hard up.and knowing that makes me a very happy,ex abc soap fan.(except for general hospital).abc is off my television.over at facebook ( daytime fans unite) there is something that p p said unless its fake ,I read it today,and dont know what to think,its the same bull.and I think its terrible that abc put us through the cancellation of all my children and one life to live twice,what a disappointment that network is.It use to be my favorite place to go for entertainment ,well not any more.

    I think ABC completely discounts the audience that works during the day and either taped the soaps for evening view or watched them on Soapnet. Maybe they shot themselves in the foot by having Soapnet show their soaps, but they should be able to count total viewship between the two networks. I’m 55, I work, have watched these shows since I was a teenager. There are plenty of viewers of all ages, men and women, who love these shows and want them back.

    ABC, the alarm clock has been ringing for quite some time! When was the last time you saw such loyalty from viewers about cancelled shows? Bring back AMC and OLTL? There are people with minds who enjoy drama, humor, sensitivity and good acting, as found in the soaps. ABC is focused on cheap, reality shows (whose reality is that junk) that do nothing to provide quality. I have deleted ABC from my channel line ups as a result of the soap cancellations. I watch nothing on your network now. Wake up, let Agnes Nixon have her rights back to AMC, get things going with OLTL again and I, along with my family and many friends, will start watching your network again!

    Ever see the soap ratings dating all the way back to the 60′s there were tons of soaps,along the way they dropped off..Remember Ryans Hope and Loving .Young and the Restless wasnt always the top soap acually it was on the lower end ,than something happened, it began to pick up ABC soap stars, and other stars from daytime,all the while gaining an audiance add in good scripts and now u have daytime #1 drama, is it making money and do u think CBS would cancell it ?. ABC could of had it all, but they didnt work hard to get where CBS is today. For along time ABC audiance put up with mediocre scripts while ABC rode the backs of loyal watchers and I hope they feel the burn BURN.I remember when Lost (primetime show about a plane that crashed on dessert island) first came out great show than reruns came one after the other so I stopped watching in fact I hardly watch ABC why because its a cheesy station that wants hand outs without the work. I really dont care if OLTL came back on I hardly watch GH anymore Im going over to CBS where I can watch long ago familure faces on a dedicated #1 show,and ABC I wont be back.

    Ideally ABC should apologize ( remember new Coca Cola) and return to being the best at what they used to do daytime drama, and if they have to chose of course I would selfishly want OLTL ( my favorite) as it was by far at the top of its game, had the most diverse cast, amazing actors, best couples,and highest ratings.

    I would love it if AMC and OLTL could return. Even if ABC/Disney was purchased by someone who cares and put money behind the soaps, it’s not within the realm of likely. The cast and crew are no longer under contract.
    Perhaps picking up certain characters – I really think HBO/HBO Latino bout make a lot of money with Téa Delgado, Victor Lord Jr./Todd, Daniela, and Tomas (with the same actors, of course). It could be done right – would be possible, but to return OLTL or AMC to the airwaves with integrity/actors/crew intact would be nearly impossible.

Bring back the other two shows and “General Hospital will do fine on its own. You know, shw interest go up and down.

    I think ABC soap time should be spent watching NBC or CBS. NO it should be spent with the family.
