A Plug is Pulled, and a Douchebag Dethroned

Ok, so by now the news that St. Charles Place Productions has no money (and never had the ability) to continue EITHER All My Children nor One Life to Live online is, quite frankly, old news. But talk about it we did on this week's podcast, so you'll get an earful on that.

What you won't get an earful on, unfortunately, is the latest news that resident douchebag Mr. Brian Frons has stepped down from his post at ABC Daytime! The douchebag would have been fired, but ABC clearly let him escape with his, uh, dignity (somewhat) intact. Anyway, you can read a decent summary of the story here.

(And imagine! Just a day or two ago, the big news was that Jill Farren Phelps and Bob Guza were both gettin' their asses kicked to the curb over at GH - thank God! - and that Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati were taking their places. What a difference a day makes.)

So what does all of this mean for daytime at ABC? You tell us what you think, of course!, here.
