  2. This shows how important Soaps have been to Primetime--and the Big Screen. I am a huge fan, but not one who is familiar with the real names of some of these Stars. Could your list say for example: Susan Lucci (Erica Cane, AMC)so that we know who we are looking for, what show they are from. That would help out a lot, and we'd know which of our Favorites we are looking for.
