Cablevision's battle with east coast ABC7 may end soap viewing for fans! Help fight back!

As of Monday March 8 soap fans may not get to see their soaps if they have Cablevision and live in Long Island, Westchester, Brooklyn, the Bronx and selected suburbs of Connecticut and New Jersey because for the past two years ABC7 has tried, without success, to reach an agreement with Cablevision to carry ABC7.  Why?  Because Cablevision’s position is that ABC7 is worth little to nothing to its business and its proposed offers have been consistently unreasonable and unrealistic.‪ Fans can visit www.saveABC7.com to make their voices heard and for details on how to switch providers.

President and General Manager of ABC7, Rebecca Campbell, released this statement on the situation, “Year after year, ABC7 is the most watched station in New York…and the country. ‪Unfortunately, as of March 7, ABC7 may no longer be carried on Cablevision systems in Long Island, Westchester, Brooklyn, the Bronx and selected suburbs of Connecticut and New Jersey. ‪For the past two years ABC7 has tried, without success, to reach an agreement with Cablevision to carry ABC7.  Why?  Because Cablevision’s position is that ABC7 is worth little to nothing to its business and its proposed offers have been consistently unreasonable and unrealistic.‪ And that’s a shame.  ABC7 delivers some of the most popular programming carried on Cablevision today, shows like General Hospital, All My Children, One Life to Live, The View, Regis and Kelly, Oprah, Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars, and so much more.‪ We think these shows are valuable.  And Cablevision’s bills show that they agree, since their customers already pay for ABC7 as part of the Broadcast Basic Tier…a service for which customers pay as much as $18 each month.‪ What the bill doesn’t who is how much Cablevision pays ABC7 for these programs…nothing! That’s right, they charge customers for ABC7 then keep ALL the money.‪ABC7 will continue to work with Cablevision to reach a fair agreement, but regardless of the outcome, ABC7 is available to those areas in New York through a variety of other providers as well as free, over the air.  Customers can visit www.saveABC7.com to make their voices heard and for details on how to switch providers.‪‪‪”

Here is some more info about what fans of the terrific ABC series can do. There are two facebook sites that fans can join as well…. In addition to the website www.saveABC7.com and the phone number – 877-990-ABC7 – also the fact that Cablevision charges viewers up to $18 each month for access to ABC7…that’s $40 million from all their subscribers each month and more than $500 million dollars each year…and they aren’t paying anything for it…so why would they need to raise rates???  The facebook sites are Cablevision…Don’t take away my ABC7! and Save ABC7 New York From Cablevision Greed!

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.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
