Hmmm, Oprah Winfrey almost suffered a nervous breakdown in 2012. “While filming Lee Daniels’ The Butler last year, Winfrey was in the midst of trying to revitalize her “struggling” TV channel, OWN”.
Was that around the time she refused to help soaps? Wasn’t that the time soap fans stopped watching Ms. Winfrey? The loyal fans who watched her show after watching their soaps. Is that the time soap fans boycotted OWN and Oprah “felt the wrath of the soap fan”?
This is another example of the power of the soap fan. A sad example, but still an example. If soap fans do not back your show you will very likely fail. Anyone remember “Revolution”? No, there is the proof. KKKKatie how is your show doing?
ABC ready to yell uncle yet? Probably not, bean counters cannot see anything beyond beans.
This also explains why Oprah took on ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life To Live’. Why she took Tyler Perry’s “The Have and Have Nots” a PrimeTime soap. A really good one also. Tyler Perry is a big part of OWN’s turn around, but so are soap fans. Many are pleading with Oprah to keep the soaps on ‘OWN’. Reminds me of my life from 2010 til 2012 as I and many fans tried to convince Ms O to help “save the soaps”. This time she should plead with the soap fans to continue watching her ‘OWN’ network. Until then we will watch ‘All My Children’ on TOLN and hope that ‘One Life To Live’ still has life left to it..
Soap watchers everywhere stay strong. The power is in your hands . That has been proven over and over again. Congratulations!
