Sharongate, bitches!

Hmm, I'm surprised at Frons using Y&R as an example, since he obviously had a bias against the show and its ratings dominance a few years back. However, Frons knows Y&R is the probably the only soap that could possibly emulate the success of GH:NS, since Y&R is a strong performer on both daytime and on SoapNet. However, Y&R isn't Disney/ABC owned, but I'm sure they'd have to strike up some deal with Sony, if this were to happen. Sony does have a history of cooperation with Disney/Buena Vista Television though.

Latham is a primetime writer and she specializes in episodic structure, so this could possibly work. However, Y&R in its current state doesn't deserve a spin-off.

OLTL is another iffy situation, given that the show is a NYC based production and its much more expensive to produce a show in NYC, than it is in say LA or Canada.
