I'm not surprised...|
With the exception of, probably NIGHTSHIFT and Y&R, SOAPnet is so far down the tubes. The ratings for all the soaps are steadily declining and its really not the fact that the soaps are replayed at night that the numbers are low. It's the fact that Frons and the talentless staff at ABC Daytime are running the soaps into the ground.
With Blackwell leaving, I wouldn't be surprised if they stripped their daytime acquisitions of all their airings. Love her or hate her, I think she understood what fans wanted and expected from that channel.
I guess we can ALL look forward to more Fashionista Diaries and probably Laguna/The Hills announcements.
SOAPnet's purpose should have never been rerunning primetime dramas or airing reality shows(which is what has killed the genre in the first place).
I'd like to see SONY or CBS hire on Blackwell as an executive in charge of launching a traditional soap channel for them. SOAPnet needs that competition.
