SOAPnet set to Sign off on March 23rd as Disney Junior Takes its Place!

It is not a good week for soap opera fans, and that is putting it mildly.  Actually, its a dreadful week!

With One Life to Live about to air its final episode this Friday, now comes word out of TV Guide that after months of wondering when actually SOAPnet would be pulled by the ABC/Disney Cable Networks,  a date has been announced!

The Disney Channel has confirmed a launch date for its new 24-hour preschool channel. Disney Junior that will replace SOAPnet on most cable and satellite systems at midnight on Friday, March 23.  However according to TVG, “A handful of viewers will still receive SOAPnet after March 22, but only because a few cable and satellite deals with Disney are still being finalized. Once those deals are done SOAPnet will completely shut down.”

The new cable network, an offshoot of Disney Channel’s Disney Junior block, will launch with the new animated series Doc McStuffins. That show, about a six-year-old girl who nurses her sick toys back to health, is one of several new programs that will make their debut on Disney Junior.  This marks the beginning of a sea change in the ‘preschool plus’ television landscape,” said Gary Marsh president and CEO of Disney Channels Worldwide. “The response to our Disney Junior programming block has been extremely positive.”

Wow, a kiddie channel for kids and their parents, and now the remaining four soap operas  have no cable outlet home with no way to broadcast encore presentations of day and date episodes for fans to catch other than online or on their original daytime slots.   Hard to fathom!

This is so ridiculous. Dont get me wrong. I Love kids, but anotheer kid station. There is already, ABC Family, The Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network. We wont be able to see our remaining soaps at night or on the weekends for marathons. I watch Soapnet pretty much 24/7. I got digital cable, a few years ago, SPECIFICALLY because timewarner was making it a paid for channel on digital versus basic cable. I am beyond upset at this whole Daytime screw up the powers that be are seriously SCREWING UP. They will regret it. SOAP OPERAS are DAYTIME TV,… Read more »

there are to many kids channels ,and they wonder why all the kids are getting over weight ,they get that way from eating while watching all those kid shows .they need to get out and do push ups ,play games ,and most of all think for themselves and get creative ,but no there letting mickey mouse do all that. and while all this is going on we cant even have 1 soap channel ,whatever.

I am just fed up with tv and so many things like high gas and a goverment that just cares for the money they can make off us anyway they can! My soaps have been my way to cope for over 35 years and now its all almost gone with taking away soap net! Have not watched ABC replacedment shows and NEVER WILL! AMC and OLTL were tv’s day time for many people. It wont be long and my husband and I wont watch tv anymore at all. Someones putting on to much CRAP on tv! This just sucks!

Most of us work during the day and enjoy watching the daily soaps on soapnet. Now we won’t have that and more people will just not bother with the soaps at all.
What a shame

How many preschool kids stay up 24 hours a day that they would need a Disney Channel all day and night. Ridiculous as it is. What a waste of time. I have 6 grandchildren and I love them dearly but there are enough channels on at the proper time for them to watch so leave us the soap net channel

Do we really need a 24 hour channel for preschoolers? Kids are supposed to be asleep at night.They should have split the channel 12 hours for disney and 12 foe soapnet.

Aren’t there enough channels for kids? I thought it was bad for them to watch too much T.V.? Where’s the government to regulate this?

barbara t
Guest

Yes there are to many ,And they do watch to much television ,they should be outside doing some pushups or other activates ,and leaving t.v. viewing to us .The government is doing something about it, there raising the taxes so dam high on all the good junk foods,and sugar stuff .so they can line there own pockets ,and keep our kids skinny at the same time.

I was holding on to hope that SoapNet would stay around and run old episodes of OLTL, like it did for Ryan’s Hope and way back when, Dynasty. Really very sad. I don’t understand why the NY based soaps can’t survive! Why only CA based soaps?? OLTL in my opinion was the BEST show on the air. GH & DOOL pale in comparison.

I would be so disappointed if they ended GH…we don’t need another talk show on TV. Just like we don’t need another children’s channel. I am watching TV less and less. Nobody wants to see a Katie Couric talk show. Let me guess…there are no guests, she just talks to hear herself talk. Ugh!

I think a cable channel — or internet channel — for cancelled soaps and soaplike primetime reruns would have a place on cable… peppered with original programming.

TCM has made a killing as a steward of film programming and cinematic history. Wouldn’t one cable channel be able to succeed in our increasingly niches world with a lineup devoted to daytime dramas and similar storytelling?

DISNEY IS DESTROYING TV! I AM NOT LOSING HOPE. I have NO CLUE why a cable network will not PICK UP OLTL. The cost to run the show, and pay the actors…..CHARGE A SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE TO THE “SOAP OPERA NETWORK” and YOU WILL HAVE THE MONEY, THE SPONSORSHIP…..Apparently the AUDIENCE is ALIVE AND WELL. GIVE THE MILLIONS of OLTL FANS THEIR SHOW!! GIVE US OUR DAILY SLEZAK FIX!!

Let me get this straight we are being told what to eat what to drive what to wear and what to watch on TV. Somehow I thought I lived in the United States of America. If this is Hope and Change you can beleive in then you can have it. My sister does not have a dvr and she works all day so she used Soapnet to watch Y&R. News channels talk shows are boring I like to escape from all the problems if that makes me stupid then I guess their are a lot of us.

I agree with you Barbara T-100%. Those awful, loud shows-they sound like game shows don’t they? Embarrassing. They encourage everyone in the audience to hoot & holler like if it is noisy enough they’ll think they are having fun & not notice how bad it is. I too would go back to 3 channels & my rabbit ears.

Well B&B never aired on Soapnet so they lose nothing here.

But the closing of Soapnet is definately a major blow to the other 3 remaining soaps that depended on Soapnet for their evening audiences.

What a stab in the back. SOAPNET was all about viewing our soaps. Little by little they chipped away at soap fans, first SOAPTALK, PC, SSW, CANCELLED AMC, than OLTL. How stupid for another Disney channel for kids! Like there isn’t enough already. No more ABC during the day for me. I will start my tv at 3:01pm for GH. Soap fans will not give up the fight, we will find a way to get our stories back.

Why, why, why does NOBODY get this? Are all these channels free to maintain? Do they not cost money? I notice OLTL has commercials, which means they have advertisers willing to pay. I DO NOT GET IT.

I have watched soaps for over 40 years. I was so excited when I got Direct TV because Soapnet was included! Now they are taking that away as well. Not only that, but they disrespect soap viewers with commercials for the shows that are replacing them. I feel betrayed and looked down on. Once GH is done, I will no longer watch ABC. Let the babies watch. After all, those kids spend a lot of money don’t they?

Many good ideas have been posted on here. I like the idea of splitting the time. The 1st part of the day, air shows for the children. Later part of the day air the soaps. Even if it is reruns. I’ve been watching the reruns they have been airing at 3 & 4 am and it is almost like watching them new. I’ve forgotten many of the story lines. They could begin when the soaps went to an hour format which was in the mid 70’s. If they started then and aired 2 episodes of each soap, there would be… Read more »

Another thing, I watch soaps from the UK and their product placement is evident, no stupid scenes talking about the products, simple product placement suffices-hello people don’t they understand every product has a symbol which we know, since they have been shoved down our throats, and ABC could have made tons of cash using product placement, do we… Read more »

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
