More bad news for daytime soap fans and the genre itself.   The first reality show featuring daytime soap stars, E! Entertainment Television’s, Dirty Soap is not being renewed or picked up for a second season.

Dirty Soap cast mate Jenna Gering, wife of Days of our Lives and Venice star, Galen Gering tweeted her disappointment today stating, “Sot he word is that Dirty Soap is NOT being picked up for another season. Thanks to all of u who watched. You all have been so supportive!!!”

So what do you think was the issue for Dirty Soap not getting a second chance on life on television?  Do you think the cable network did not put enough effort behind the series in terms of marketing? Do you think mainstream audiences just refuse to tune-in to anything connotated with the word, “soap”, even though the product to many was entertaining and interesting?  Let us know your thoughts!

I am not really surprised it wasn’t renewed. In all honesty I found the show in badtaste, rather tacky and pointless. It actually boggles me that soap actors would participate in these soapreality shows when they directly are causing damage to the general soap operas they have careers in. :/

I don’t agree…The soaps are being phased out…. They were smart to do this show because they wouldn’t have any jobs at all otherwise. There are too many food shows isn’t America fat enough? I would rather see the stars on a reality show rather than not at all…

I think Dirty Soaps was good. It was on E, maybe they can try another station. I seen nothing that was in bad taste, considering the Reality shows they have on. I seen picked on Ice T, no thats bad taste. I say to the producers of DS, keep trying. If the ratings were good, maybe Oprah Chanell. I just want Dirty Soaps back.

I just think it sucks that they didn’t renew DirtySoap. It was an entertaining show which gave us a look into the personal lives of some of our favorite soap stars. I don’t think they really gave it enough of a chance. It was only on 8 times! First my OLTL and now no DirtySoap either! I was looking forward to seeing my Faves Farah Fath and John Paul Lavoisier! 🙁

I thought it was super interesting. A really fun show & I am with you-I thought at least I can see my precious Balsom & Morasco again. Damn.

I am so sad…. I loved it they are taking away all my soaps and replacing it with food… Is it me or is there some new obsession with food shows, America is fat enough.. bring back soaps and bring back dirty soap There is a whole world of people who do love this. They should have given it one more season and market it better. So not fair to the people who truly love soaps and lets face it… They are phasing out the soaps. I want to atleast be able to see them in a reality show……

This is too bad. I really liked this show. Probably didn’t get renewed because so many soaps have been cancelled. If Disney did the right thing and gave back the rights to AMC and OLTL then more soaps would come back to cable networks. Could be that ABC/Disney pressured the producers to pull out to make it look good for the
ABC fiasco

ABC will be sorely out of luck with everyone boycotting ABC daytime and and nighttime now due to pulling AMC/OLTL they are in for a rude awakening!!!! Many won’t be watching the Oscars now!!!!!

That thought crossed my mind as well. Just had a feeling that somehow someway ABC had a hand in it! I did enjoy the show very much. I hope they can give it another shot.

I have been here,Feel bad for the dirty soap fans ,I really tried to watch ,I think it was on at a stupid time,they could have tried to change it before they canceled it ,Im up at 6 so im dead at 9 ,I have to put toothpicks in my eyes for a few of my shows ,I dont have one of those taping things ,so I have to watch the shows when there on,I am missing one life to live so much ,looking forward to seeing what will happen in port charles,getting more interested in days of our lives,hard to learn new names ,use to watch it when maggie was in crutches ,so there is history there ,the other 2 soaps I cant watch because of the time they are on in my area,so 2 oclock is free to miss one life to live,and it is missed,dont think it will be brought back,I hope I am so wrong,all the actors are going all over the place,landview can never be the same unless our same people are there.

Sadly just a reflection of how many view the daytime genre right now maybe one day there will be a revival of some sorts…

TPTB sure made their minds up rather quickly.I thought wewere all going to find out in a couple of weeks.You know,Kelly and Mark had a great concept and talent to back them up.I’m surprised E couldn’t make room for at least 10 more.

Carol

Pointless show to begin with. A reality show, showing the dirty laundry of soap stars. Surprised they found any daytime actors willing to take part in the genre that’s killing their jobs in the first place.

I was hoping it would get picked up for the next season. I watched to see Kelly Monaco.

It was bad timing for the reality show. 2/3 years ago when we had 8/9 soaps it would have worked, any maybe would have even helped. But in 2012 with 4 soaps left? I can’t say I blame E!. They have real cash cows to tend to.

I have to say that initially I was looking forward to watching Dirty Soap. I loved the cast members that were chosen, and I had hoped that it would be juicy and give some backstage insights into the world of creating soap operas. Boy oh boy, was I disappointed. I watched all but the last episode, and found it tedious to get through. The show’s demise has nothing to do with the lack of interest in our favorite genre- the show was just plain boring. Really boring. I love Galen on Days, but- OMG his personal life may be fine and dandy- but his daily routine of being a husband and a dad is just NOT interesting television viewing. To say nothing of the One Life couple and their GRATING relationship. Farrah was fun to watch on One Life (and previously on Days) but I can’t figure out why John-Paul (?) stays with her if their Dirty Soap appearance is indicitive of their real life relationship. She pretty much yelled at him and treated him life a child for the duration of the enitre show. However, that was nothing compared to her unexplicable, catty “feud” with former BBF Kirsten. Dirty Soap was just plain disappointing, and that’s putting it mildly.

Good enough idea but not great execution. It did not hold my interest. I would enjoy more examination of professiona lives and such, not home life and personal drama.

Agree. I was looking forward to it, but was disappointed by the show itself and that had to do with the cast. They weren’t interesting enough or likeable.

I thought it odd how Jenna reacted to Galen’s job. It’s called acting. He is being paid to kiss Ali. His paycheck is what enables you to stay home and take care of the kids.

I liked Farah before DS, but on the show she came off as a total bitch.

Nadia’s mother was also infuriatingly annoying. It’s a testament to how much Brandon loves Nadia that he stays with her despite having to put up with Fary. If I were Nadia, I’d tell Fary to take a hike until she can get on board with the relationship with Brandon.

Kelly and Kirsten seemed like they were pushed together. It wasn’t organic.

I would also have liked to have seen more footage of them on-the-job, working on their soaps and get a little backstage peek. I thought that was going to be included, but from the eps I saw, it wasn’t. Seeing Kelly sitting in her dressing room didn’t really cut it.

Plus, of the eight cast members, only three are currently working on soaps. Two contract and one recurring.

I’m so glad Dirty Soap was canceled. The “reality” show was fake, phony, staged, and embarrassing for all of the actors in the show. All of the actors came off in a bad light as did the soap genre. Plus the show was a boring wasted of space. I’m glad it was axed.

It sucked! I tryed to watch it a few times but it was awful! But most reality shows stink! The networks like them because they’re cheaper. Farah was a real bitch on it!

It sucks that they are not having a 2nd season. I liked watching this reality show on the soap stars, because you got to know who they were outside of their character.

I am very upset that it got cancelled! I love the show, and was excited to see the new adventures of all my favorite soap stars! It was great to get a look into their real lives, and who they are as people. Not just their characters on the soap! Now all I have left is GH. Not sure why all the other reality shows make it (and some of those are really stupid) and Dirty Soap didn’t! This sucks! Not happy right now.

It is to bad Dirty Soap was cancelled, it was great fun and I was looking forward to it for a second season. I don’t think it was advertised enough.

I am upset that DS will not be back and that Kelly,who I watch every day never mentioned anything. I have been a soap opera fan for at least 50 years and feel my TV viewing is not my right any more. Shows can so easily be yanked off the air leaving me grieving.

I am so upset that Dirty Soap is not coming back ON. I purposely searched nonlinear to find out if I missed the second season. I hope someone changes thee mind and bring it back on. I grew up with soap operas so to see their personal life and struggles is a real soap opera.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

47th Annual Daytime Emmy Ceremonies Canceled Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

There won’t be any “And the Enmy goes to _” come this June, where NATAS had originally scheduled three nights of award presentations honoring the best in daytime programming at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys.   The three-day event was slated for June 12-14th, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
