Greetings Soap, Fans! my name is Toure Cannon, and I’m a HARDCORE FAN of the soaps All My Children (AMC) and One Life To Live (OLTL). And it gives me great honor to be a guest blogger on LET’S TALK ABOUT SOAPS!
You see this image below? Well, let me first tell you that I started watching AMC and #OLTL in the 70s & 80s…AMC 1975 and OLTL 85. I was so hooked on the Chandler/Martin/Kane families as well as the Lord/Buchanan/Cramers. I got hooked so fast I wanted more, more, more..!
Until that fateful, terrible, sad day they got cancelled!! No! I was so disgusted and pissed off, I wanted to puke! Thinking you go and cancel two long-running (to put it mildly) iconic soaps for two talkers that got cancelled Katie an The Revolt-ion/Repulsion (The Revolution)…not to mention The Spew/Chew?! Yes, The Spew…the worst, repulsive, rejected, regurgitated, ignorant, talk show ever to hit the daytime airwaves and take the place of our soaps…AND WE WANT IT GONE, DEAD, and CANCELED!!!
Now on with the boycotting! We’ve been boycotting all things Disney/ABC and their sponsors and products since they axed AMC and OLTL in 2011 and again in 2012. I’ve been boycotting Disney/ABC since the middle of 2012. Actually, I’M NOT GOING TO LIE, 2013 for two FUNKSTINKING YEARS…AND HAVE NOT STOPPED. And I am head of a group that now has over 180 members (187 to be exact) fighting for their return! Our slogan is “No Mouse In My House!” Meaning we boycott Disney/ABC, primetime and daytime, 23/7 (one hour for us soap fans to watch General Hosptial is the only show that we watch and support on this boring b—–d channel Always Broadcasting Crap (The Chew/Spew), until our canceled soaps return!
Our boycott has claimed a few cancellations of some primetime shows already: Cristela Forever, The Taste, an The Neighbors, the last a show that was so, so, so, dumb, it wasn’t even funny at all! Whoever said boycotts don’t work needs to look it up in a dictionary or is high ignorant as h—.
OK, an online company called The Online Network /Prospect Park (TOLN/PP), heard the howling cries of us AMC an OLTL fans and revived them as 30 minute web series cut down from an hour. These online versions began from where the broadcast versions ended when ABC made the stupid, horrendous, horrific, decision to cancel AMC and OLTL.
Now all of a sudden there’s a lawsuit that PP filed. A class act bankruptcy hearing claiming ABC sabotaged three characters from Llanview to Port Charles…but what PP doesn’t know is that characters return from the dead on soaps all the time. I’m still boycotting ABC until our soaps return, and ABC needs to get their heads out of their network a**es. They need to get it right, and for a change listen to us, giving us our shows back!
Their channel is in danger form becoming ABC to XYZ if they don’t wake up. That a—–e Brian Frons who has founded a career on making bad decisions like canceling AMC and OLTL, got fired, now his successor Ben Sherwood is the new Head of ABC Daytime. He can fix what Brian the Fartknocker Frons broke. The Shrew,–excuse me—The View is plummeting in ratings, further nose diving since Barbara Walters and the original cohosts after her, left. No matter whom you replace them with, ABC is a sinking ship….GEESH JUST CUT YOUR LOSSES, ABC, AND CANCEL THE VIEW! If Ben Sherwood doesn’t fix his I’m-stuck-with-idiotic numb-nutted-uneducated-stupid-halfwits-high-on-crack attitude he’ll definitely join Frons in the my a– just got fired club!
Reality TV is finally choking, gagging, and croaking. It’s dying off because some networks are finally realizing they made a stupid mistake on investing in realicrapity TV, non-scripted BS, BUT NEEDS TO WAKE UP and give us our soaps back, dammit! Stop farting around ABC an Mr. Sherwood, and revive AMC an OLTL, if you want this boycott to end and gain your longtime viewers back an maybe some new ones as well.
Because as long as you drag out this childish lawsuit, the boycott is going to further continue!
Revive All My Children and One Life To Live as they were in their original time slot, Mr. Sherwood…GIVE US BACK OUR SOAPS, AND WE’LL LOVE YOU FOREVER!
By Toure Cannon!
Readers/Soap fans: What do you think of the points Toure made? Are there other angles from which our Disney/ABC can get our soaps back? What else are you doing to ensure AMC and OLTL return?
