Soap Dish: Hope For 2012

January 8, 2012

It is Soap Dish time again and as promised I am going to give you my hopes for the soap world.

General Hospital Cast 1

I like to call 2011 the year of the cancellation, which is why from the get go I am calling 2012 the year soaps get revived. What I mean by that is I think the powers that be at the remaining four shows have stood up and taken notice of what they really need to do in order to keep their shows on air. From the rebooting of Days of Our Lives to General Hospital’s behind the scenes power switch up to The Young & The Restless pulling out the big guns even more in terms of casting, yes changes they are a happening. That being said, network execs need to realize replacing our soaps with crap shows like The Talk and The Chew is not going to give them the fan base soaps did. Sure the cost to produce them is cheaper but the viewership is not as good, trust me!

So what I hope for 2012 is a couple of things. I hope the powers that be listen to the fans, it worked for Days after all. Pay attention now more than ever to what fans are saying. We are loyal, we need to be heard and we can save our soaps. I also hope that soap fans out there maybe tune in to a show they either haven’t watched before or in a long time. For example I am going to start watching The Young & The Restless again. I used to watch it regularly but for a while now I have only been checking it out every once in a while so I am gong to change that.

Seriously I could go on and on about all the hopes and dreams I have for the New Year because let’s face it that is what the New Year is all about, right? But instead I want to ask you what you hope lies ahead for your favorite shows this year, so spill them please.
