  1. Nicely Said, and well put Mimi.. speaks volumes....:)

  2. Mimi Torchin makes some good points here. Why didn't ABC consider changing how the soaps are aired? If All My Children and One Life to Live are too expensive now, why not make AMC and OLTL a half hour long instead of an hour? Why not change the schedule, like airing one soap three times a week and another twice a week? Or why can't they look into raising revenue through other methods, like charging for internet streaming or overseas sales? And why don't soaps reflect current issues more instead of constantly showing old cliches like baby swaps and characters coming back from the dead?

  3. Eloquent as every Mimi......Those A/hole Network's & exec's have no idea what the average viewer want's to see.
