I am not about this b/c even though Anne Sweeney at least honored her word by keeping the strongest one, she can still have the show canceled if she wants so I am -_- at “renewed”. And may God help Nellie Andreava for giving soap fans false hope lol. Though please don’t let my meh post damper the party. We’ll go a yr. w/o seeing any soaps given a time of death!
I guess it’s official that the show will see 50! Since I know that I can do this:
Yes, it’s sort of a mixed bag, but I’m taking any good news we can get this month! I am thrilled The Revolution is getting the boot rather than GH, and it kind of makes the statement that you can’t just cancel a soap and replace it with anything. At some point, you have to admit some of these shows are failures, from both ratings and creative standpoints.
And really, GMA In The Afternoon? I saw a five-minute segment on GMA yesterday morning about a guy who has become an “internet sensation” for being really photogenic in a single picture. This is the kind of crap these morning shows are filled with, so why are they even considering expanding, and how far do they think they can ride the gravy train? I also read that The Today Show is considering expanding to a fifth hour. A FIFTH HOUR. For heaven’s sake, why? Because somewhere in Oklahoma there’s a girl who’s bunny ran away, and she’s not getting the news coverage she deserves? Because they don’t spend enough time talking about what’s trending on Twitter? Because Kathie Lee and Hoda have more tips on when and how to get boozy than they can dispense in an hour? These ideas feel bonkers to me.
