Canada is mourning our soaps too!  In a piece for CBC News the state of the soap genre is profiled featuring footage from Tuesday’s soap opera fan protest in front of the ABC Upfronts, a group of long-time soap watchers, and interviews with All My Children’s, Cameron Mathison (who hails from Canada), and TV Guide Canada’s soap journalist, Nelson Branco.

The segment looks at the ever-changing and dwindling canvas of the daytime genre, and what it means to many people, plus how budgets have been integral to wiping soaps off the map! Watch the segment after the jump!

Y&R has been a staple in my family. It started with my Grandmother who started watching from the very first episode and NEVER MISSED ONE up until less than a week before she passed away 2 years ago. She was 92. The love of Y&R and soaps in general is something my family has always joked about saying, “it ran through our veins like blood.” I am a Canadian fan. At 30 years old, I feel like I have grown up with many of the Characters. The thought that this genre is dying is crushing to me. While I have… Read more »

From what I hear, Couric is eyeing Oprah’s syndicated spot with affiiiates, not GH’s.

From what I have seen, promos for “The Spew” and “The Regurgitation” look just awful. They won’t last.

Thanks for using the vid link, Michael. 🙂

We can only hope that GH’s status will hold for the time being. Fingers crossed. If only one could be picked up, I really want OLTL to be the one. It’s on FIRE.

I am in the 18-49 age demographic…I have watched ABC soaps for my entire life! My mother watches, my grandmother watches, my friends watch. I have been waiting for the day my daughter is old enough to fall in love with them! This is a horrible mistake by ABC and we, the viewers, are not being counted accurately with the Neilsen ratings!

I actually have childhood memories watching that show when ABC simsubbed CBC until I was 4, not 5 but close. WXYZ simsubbed that show, even on star choice too. WCVB used to simsubbed to the CBC feeds in Atlantic Canada for two straight years for all my children. In 1998, Citytv picked up the show to avoid family rivals competing with CityTVs One life to live and CBCs all my children. I watch that instead of Barney the boring dinosaur on PBS. Until 1996, one life to live aired on CBC. In 1998, both ABC’s daytime shows starting airing on… Read more »

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.
