Hoover decides to pull Ads off of ABC due to OLTL & AMC Axing!

Many fans are grinning ear to ear this afternoon with the announcement on the Hoover facebook page that the vacuum cleaner giant is pulling their advertisements from the ABC line-up effective April 22nd due to the cancellation of One Life to Live and All My Children! Brian Kirkendall, Vice President of Marketing for Hoover posted that his wife and mother, and co-workers are avid OLTL and AMC viewers, and the news of the cancellations disappointed them. Hoover has thus decided to discontinue their advertising on ABC as of April 22nd, maybe sooner!

Here is what the entire facebook post said from Kirkendall: “To all the loyal ABC soap fans, I want you to know from me personally that we hear you loud and clear. My wife and mother are both passionate viewers of All My Children and One Life to Live, as are many of my colleagues here at Hoover. We were and are as disappointed with this news as you are. In fact, we will discontinue our advertising with ABC this Friday, 4/22. We’re making every attempt to pull our spots from these programs sooner. Because we feel that’s not enough, we also want to help get your voice heard with ABC. So, we’ve set up a special email address. SaveTheSoaps@Hoover.com, to help pull together the mass emotional outpouring of support for our beloved ABC soaps and get it to our contacts at ABC. Please, send your emails to us at SaveTheSoaps@Hoover.com, and we’ll get every, single last one of them to ABC. We’re 150% committed to doing what matters most to you – so if there’s anything else we can do to help or you have any ideas, please email this address, and we will respond to you personally. Thank you for standing up for what matters to you! We need more of that in this world.”

So how about that one soapers?  Standing up for Soaps by pulling out advertising!  It’s an interesting concept considering the big thing on the networks execs minds is always the advertising dollar for their programming slots.

If more advertisers would take the same stand they could go to another network with all the advertisers needed to sell OLTL and keep it going! They could even start their own network!

I applaud your stance and courage in pulling your ads from ABC due to the cancellation of AMC and OLTL. This must be a first in marketing and is simply brilliant. Most don’t understand that the advertisers are the people where appeals must be made. I hit the demographic they so terribly desire to reach and vow to you that any product I need that Hoover makes will be the only brand I consider when making a purchase. KUDOS TO YOU! Why doesn’t someone put Brian Fronz out of a job. The money he makes as an individual could probably… Read more »

After reading another discussion board re: companies pulling advertising on ABC due to the cancellation of One Life To Live and All My Children. I applaud Hoover for the action that they have taken in response to their customers complaints about the cancellations and pulled their advertisements from ABC. I will be a loyal customer of Hoover products and will be making it a point to purchase Hoover products in the future. I have written to ABC and informed them that I will NOT be watching any shows on ABC after the cancellations of these soaps nor will I be… Read more »

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.

All My Children Stars and Eileen Davidson On New Episode of Virtual Game Show “Soap Opera Know-It-All”

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

The Michael Fairman Channel just released its fifth episode of its season, where in round one of the game play, stars from the beloved All My Children served up the questions including: Cady McClain (Ex-Dixie), Jill Larson (Ex-Opal), Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Cara), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David) and Jacob Young (Ex-Y&R).  In addition, the former cast members from Pine Valley also try to stump viewers at home with some additional character-related questions.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.

Trivia questions from the following daytime and primetime soaps were put to the players during the game: All My Children, As the World Turns, Dark Shadows, General Hospital, Knots Landing, Sunset Beach, Days of our Lives, Dynasty, Edge of Night, One Life to Live, Port Charles and The Young and the Restless.

As the series moves through its now back-half of the season, the winning contestant must defeat the competition for the right to move on to the next episode to face three more challengers all in pursuit of the “Know-It-All” title with special soap-related prizes along the way.
