`Be a soap ambassador and support our shows!!
Posted May 20, 2013on:
This group has always been about tasks and making our voices heard and creating change.
Today we continue that but in a new way.
We need everyone here to become soap ambassadors looking out for fans that are not currently watching both shows.
We need to inform them that these shows survive together and die apart. If one goes, they both go!!
Let us explain, the model for these shows to keep costs down is to use the same crew and location for both shows.
Remove one show and the costs don’t work out.
For those saying to just bring back AMC– most of the actors don’t live on the east coast and have no plans to move back.
This shooting schedule makes doing the show an option.
Just do OLTL? OLTL has lower viewership than AMC so financially that makes no sense.
Drop the “More” show? That show costs a fraction of the cost of an episode but gains them the same potential in ad revenue.
We need to help PP and let the Friday show play.
Not happy with it? Email them and explain what you don’t like in a nice way (format, host, topics, etc).
We Hope this shows you though that these shows are tied together.
That if we don’t band together and let them both play to be counted we are jeopardizing our chance of keeping these shows.
This would also cost 200+ people their jobs.
So we need to be posting comments about watching both shows everywhere DAILY.
If you see someone who isn’t watching both use the info written here to help educate.
Lets pull together and get those viewership numbers up!
For those of you in Canada, let me start by saying I am heart broken for you, and let you know you still have options.
iTunes Canada is carrying the shows now and if you get VPN you can watch thru Hulu.
If you would like to tell FX that you still want the episodes even though they were cut to only 2 a week per show
& the More show you can contact them here via their “contact us” form http://www.fxcanada.ca/contact.php
remember to be polite 🙂
We also need you to let other soap fans know the importance of watching both shows and the more shows,
which brings more viewers which will bump the need for more shows which is what FX needs!!
And for all our tweeters, I have composed easy tweets to each of the actors and some crew
letting them know that we are forever fans, 4 shows or 2 we will support both shows!!
here is the link to those tweets. (I will put them back up on Tuesday as well in case you are not
able to get thru them all today)
If you like the ease of easy tweets but want to say something different I have done
easy tweets with each of the actors twitter handles but nothing else, just click who you
want to write to and say what you want 🙂
And don’t forget to watch AMC today!!
allmychildren.com will take you right to it!!
