So bummed that my cable company doesn’t offer TVGN. 🙁

Comcast does not carry TVGN ..

I tried to find it, called in and was told Comcast did not carry TVGN ..

Lew S

Hi, Yes they do. I have it.


wow which state?
Comcast said they do not carry TVGN..

I really don’t care, the station is a zero, nothing their worth watching lol

I watch Y&R online , no need for to see it on TVGN ..

Lew S

I live in Boston, Massachusetts and have Comcast.


Interested to see what replaces it on soapnet


Reruns of the Chew…just kidding! lol

I say bring back Ryan’s Hope or the mega nighttime soaps of the 80s and 90s.

I have the TV Guide Network. I can’t wait to move to my new home. I am with Verizon Fios


Wish tvgn carried the reboots too!!! Own is better than nothing.


Seems OWN is ”all” we have to put the soaps on a TV network..
Nobody wants to deal with the soaps, nobody wants them, still ..


CBS recently purchased TVGN which we can deduce prompted this move of Y&R rebroadcasts from SOAPNet to TVGN. I assume TVGN will becsome the home of CBS and CBS-produced off-network fare and reruns, and that may include CW and Showtime programming, also in the CBS family. Corporate synergy!!!

I amnot sure what SOAPNet will do. I thought that cabler was to shutter last year. I am glad for it as I can see the current soaps at night now as I enjoy them, in front of my TV. (It’s taking some getting used to to log in to watch the rebooted AMC and OLTL).

I wonder if TVGN will show B&B reruns if Y&R is successful. Or maybe even reruns of GL, ATWT, or other legacy soaps from the days when CBS was daytime’s gold standard but that my be too far back in the day anymore.

As for OWN, my cabler does not carry the web and that is OK. I remain stung that OWN could not help AMC and OLTL when the cancellations were first announced in 2011.

I am not sure who decided daytime drama was past its prime. Good storytelling never is. I keep watching and following and cheering (even when plots are bad — again, Emmy win aside, B&B, but that is another post).

I would love meet all the Y&R,Star.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.
