As you're probably aware, Guiding Light has been cancelled, but what you might not realise is that it's far from over. Reports are coming in that the show is looking for a new network and a sudden upsurge in ratings and viewer response could even get CBS to change its mind. So this, soap, Otalia, GL fans, is where the hard work begins.
The Big Purple Dreams
forum has lots more details of what's going on, and I trust that they'll soon be organising one hell of a campaign. So, the first thing you need to do is go over there and see what YOU can do to stop this from happening.
Proctor & Gamble and Telenet own the show and are actively looking for a new home for it, so I suggest that everyone starts by contacting them and vocalising your support. Also, log onto the myriad of soap sites and express your dismay at the end of an era.( Collapse )
For all you graphics whizzes, how about creating us some 'Save GL' banners, icons, avatars etc. that can then be used EVERYWHERE. Remember, it's not just about saving the Otalia storyline, although that is, of course, very important, but about saving the show as a whole.
One final word of caution... remember, in all your communications (because I trust you'll be on that phone or writing those e-mails the second you've finished reading this), to be polite and positive about the show. Going in and ranting and raving will get you nowhere.ETA: Big Purple Dreams have come through again, and now have a thread with all the contact details you'll need. You can find it HERE.
