Programmers Cook Up New Recipes for Old Channels
SOAPnet doesn’t seem to have a lot in common with a pre-K net, but some of its fans are likely moms to young children. It’s also a bit of a different bag in that it was created before DVRs really took off so that soap fans could catch up on their favorite shows.

Christian character joining GLEE
"I'm adding a Christian character," says Ryan Murphy. "We've taken a couple jabs at the right wing this year, so what I want to do with this character is have someone who Christian kids and parents can recognize and say, 'Oh, look—I'm represented there, too!'

  1. LOL. Yeah, and before the VCR some of us used audiotapes to record our soaps.

    No lie.

    And before that, there was the slate, LOL.

  2. Funny! The Disney spin has mentioned the same thing - DVR use makes SOAPnet irrelevant. It doesn't explain why they refused to invest in new soaps or more classic soaps.
