Soap Dish: Is ABC Daytime President Brian Frons In Hot Water?

April 22, 2011

You know what they about karma it can be a real biotch and it looks like ABC Daytime president Brian Frons just might be getting some well deserved karma. Oh yes it is a Soap Dish you won’t want to miss!

Brian Frons

The man who just cancelled two icon daytime soap operas might just be in some serious hot water from that decision. Soon after the decision to axe All My Children and One Life To Life was announced the backlash began. Now it looks like just a mere week after Mr. Frons just tossed aside two long standing beloved shows for some crap reality TV that he just might be feeling the heat from his recent actions.

According to an article in The New York Post the powers that be at ABC are none too thrilled with the ad revenue fall out from Frons decision. Just in case you aren’t aware Hoover pulled all of its ad revenue from the network and Hershey has said that it will pull theirs too if they receive 10,000 calls in support of the soaps that were canned. What all that means is that ABC could be losing some serious cash, plus there are other big name advertisers such as L’Oreal that are getting some serious heat from consumers to yank their ads as well. Oh yes if ABC loses some of its biggest advertisers than Mr. Frons just might be on his way out.

I personally think that Brian Frons is a jack who doesn’t know a thing about what the people want. Here is hoping that he gets what is coming to him because I assure you that you will not get the same type of dedicated fans for the new shows as you will AMC and OLTL. I think it would be perfect karma if Frons got the boot and if the buzz on the street is any indication then that just might happen. Those are my thoughts on this hot topic let me know what you think and if you are a soap fan I know you have an opinion so spill it.

    I was in shock when I heard the news. People laugh and say it is just TV which is very true however for this stay at home Mom it is my escape from all the crazy things of normal life. I have been watching AMC and OLTL for about 15yrs now.
    I love the shows and really am going to be sad when they go off. Bad move ABC I will not be watching any ABC shows in my house when these are off the air!!!

    The soaps have a huge following, and I’m hoping that Frons get kicked to the curb before we see the last of AMC and OLTL.
