I like the idea of one night a week in Prime Time. Like all the rest of the shows out there. This way workers can see it, cause in the evening, and once a week will leave time for a lot of stories to be told FOR YEARS AND YEARS! Maybe another 40???

I will take each day as it comes.
As my grandfather always told me.."Don't ever get old,it's a ..." I should have listened to him!!

I'd be happy with 1 day a week too! Wonder if they even considered such a thing? I read on the other team where Angel posted that they were talking about firing Fronnes way back in April! Why couldn't the fans be heard? I'll hold out the hope too!

Missy, I agree with you. I'd take anything, one night a week, reunion movies. "Half a loaf is better than none".

I will always still have hope! If Dallas is back, why can't our soaps come back too! I wouldn't care if it went to one day a week (like the shows at night... Desperate Housewives, Now Dallas, etc.). I'll always pray & have hope... hee hee.

Better late than never! I sure wish Frons had been kicked to the curb BEFORE the demise of our shows. I was reading something that described soaps as a "ratings-challenged genre", but my understanding is that the replacement programming is doing worse. HMM...

So this charma stuff really works .... interesting. I had thoughts about another situation yesterday and my mother in law told me put it out my mind. Going to rethink this now.

But as far as all our shows go its sad we are loosing everything. The soap opera and daytime emmys are going to be a thing of the past soon.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

I read this too and I dont really think its going to change anything. We will never get back AMC and OLTL and GH will still go bye bye next year.

On Fridays show they made a reference to Erica Kane on OLTL. They have also made a reference to Pine Valley. I hope GH will do the same.....

ABC Shake-Up: Vicki Dummer's New Times Square Studios Replaces Daytime Chief Brian Frons
Published: December 02, 2011 @ 12:01 pm

By Tim Kenneally

Brian Frons, longtime president of ABC Daytime, will leave the company when his contract ends in January, and his departure will usher in a shakeup in the way that ABC's daytime roster will be handled, the network announced on Friday.

Going forward, the newly formed Times Square Studios -- headed by Vicki Dummer -- will oversee current entertainment programming and the development of new programming for ABC Daytime and Syndication.

Dummer is currently the network's Senior Vice President, Current Series & Specials. With the realignment, she will be promoted to executive vice president, Times Square Studios, Current Series & Specials.

Frons will assist in the transition period as the new structure is put in place.

In addition to Dummer's promotion, Abra Potkin, who'd formerly been with CBS News, has been hired on as senior vice president, East Coast Programming & Development, Times Square Studios. Ann Lewis Roberts, a veteran of ABC Daytime, has been promoted to senior vice president, West Coast Current Programming & Development, Times Square Studios. Both Potkin and Roberts will report to Dummer.

Anne Sweeney, co-chair, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney/ABC Television Group, said that the new structure will allow the network to "bring greater creative resources, development strength and operational flexibility to this key area of our business.”

“While my decision to try something new was not arrived at easily, nine years is a long time in television terms," Frons, who came aboard as president of ABC Daytime in 2002, said. "I’m proud of the performance of ABC Daytime over that time, and of all of the accomplishments that our team achieved along the way. "

Dummer said that she's "honored, humbled and thrilled to have been entrusted with this new opportunity, adding, "Brian built an amazing team, and I’m looking forward to jumping into this new role and working with Abra, Ann and everyone in the group to make Times Square Studios a vibrant addition to our division.”

The change comes during a period of upheaval for ABC's daytime roster, with the departure of long-running soap operas "All My Children," which went off the air in September, and "One Life to Live," which is scheduled to go off the air in January.

In her autobiography "All My Life: A Memoir," former "All My Children" star Susan Lucci blasted Frons for what she called "some very bad decisions." Lamenting his decision to replace "All My Children" with cheaper-to-produce, food-themed talk show "The Chew," Lucci wrote, "An iconic show was losing out to greed."
