It wouldve been nice if some former soap stars of cancelled soaps from the last 30 years were interviewed and gave their opinions on what they think got their shows cancelled and what they think of the renewed popularity of the remaining 4. Former stars like Vicki Wyndam ex AW, Eileen Fulton ex ATWT, Micheal Levin(is that right) ex Ryans Hope, Jada Rowland ex The Doctors/Secret Storm and Ann Flood ex E.O.N. and maybe a few others if available! I mean it would be very interesting to hear from a blast from the past and hear what they have to say! imo!

I did call in, Mn. does not carry TVGN, at least not in my area and I’m in the metropolitan area..
I was told that TVGN was once carried by Comcast, but it was dropped..

I’m in the MPLS metro too, and it pisses me off that we don’t get TVGN! It would be nice to be able to see Y&R and B&B reruns when the shows get pre-empted. I’m sure there’s some legal BS that keeps them from showing it around here, but it’s the customers who suffer. 🙁

Michael, any chance you could post the show on your site? I do not have TVGN either.

Many thanks if you are able to.

I think it’s already been removed from You Tube, due to copyright infringements. Too bad, I really wanted to see this show. Does anyone know where else it can be seen?

His daughter and my daughter are good friends, they’re the same age and I just want everyone to know, Eva and Kaya, that we are thinking of you and we are just so sad and so devastated.
