An ABC Exec Responds to Hoover Ad Boycott over AMC & OLTL Cancellation!

In response to the statement released this afternoon from Hoover on their facebook page that they are pulling out of advertising on ABC on April 22nd due to the upsetting cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live, an ABC executive who requested anonymity spoke to TV Guide and offered this counter statement and the network’s point of view.

The ABC exec stated, “Usually advertisers stop advertising when they want to cancel a show, not the other way around. We’ve said that the cancellation of AMC and OLTL was about money and ratings, so [the Hoover boycott] is just counterintuitive. You don’t save something by taking money away.”

So, who is the ABC exec? Do you really think it’s counterintuitive? Or, a true show of support for fans and the soaps and the network just doesn’t want to admit it?

Why have a statement about this late on a Monday night unless it WAS making a difference. They are scared and want us to stop because they don’t want to lose money. TOUGH! They messed with the wrong fans!!!!!!

That means they’re SCARED. If ABC didn’t care they wouldn’t response. They’ve already lost the PR campaign (which will damage new shows) and now they’re losing soap fans. Even if the soaps aren’t saved, it’s hurting ABC.

I’m writing my letters tonight. It MATTERS and our voice is being heard. 🙂

Actually, if that ABC “exec” was my employee I would commend that person for a measured, appropriate response from the network point of view. The bottom line is dollars. I know we don’t like it but that’s the way our society has evolved. We want cheap. We want fast. And we don’t give a damn that the rich get rich while the poor get poorer. The position Hoover has taken make them a consumer darling. Positive consumer response to Hoover is encouraged. At the same time fans have to realize that if there is any hope of getting new life… Read more »

What a tool! Keep going ABC I’m sure none of the execs from the companies who paying ad revenue to them have wive’s mothers grandmothers sisters and daughters who watch AMC OLTL and GH…and NONE of them are complaining to said execs about their fave shows being cancelled. Soaps are a legacy that grandmothers, mothers daughter and friends share…This is what you forgot

ABC can say what they want, they wouldn’t be trash talking about it if they weren’t upset what Hoover did! I LOVE Hoover’s idea and respect them for their opinion over this situation! Way 2 go Hoover! I’m a fan mainly of OLTL but I’d love for both shows to be picked up by another channel, any other time frame and I would watch! I’m disgusted myself at ABC’s decision going under handed the way they did the cancellations. They did all of the people who were employed at AMC and OLTL terrible!

I am afraid it’s counterproductive, if it’s being taken away from the AMC OLTL and GH timeslot.

I have sent emails to Hoover asking them to continue to advertise on the three soaps only. Wouldn’t that make more of a statement?

Flip it around — does the network want ad revenue or not? At least one advertisor is speaking about ABC practices and whether or not they think the network wants their advertising dollars. And this is how ABC responds?

I don’t think its counteproductive, as it is not simply removing advertising from ABC Daytime but from ABC entirely. This will affect a lot more than soaps. And the bottom line is ABC needs its advertisers for every show, thats where they make money, they sell commericals. So applaud Hoover for caring about its customers enough to take a stand with them, or at the very least being smart enough to know there is nothing more loyal than a soap fan!

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
