Back in the 1980s, soaps ruled daytime. It's not replaced with talk and service shows now. There are only 9 shows. Only four are produced in New York City and the 5 are produced in Los Angeles. There was a time when it was 14 and New York City ruled daytime television. Those days are long gone because of production costs and the fact that audiences don't seem to be interested in daytime television as much as prime time. In England, soaps are very popular and acceptable. They have become part of their culture. It's sad that the same country that produced the early daytime serials like Search for Tomorrow which showed Agnes Nixon's creative genius and actors like Mary Stuart and Larry Haines play Jo and Stu for 35 years to lose daytime television. Daytime soaps like Search for Tomorrow are no longer being produced in New York City. I don't believe New York City will ever reclaim or want to reclaim it's title of the daytime television industry. It's a shame. There are plenty of actors who want to stay in New York City and work in stage, film, and television without having to relocate to Los Angeles. Maybe the answer is north in Toronto where actors and actresses can work on stage, film, and television. I remember Mary Stuart and Jane Krakowski from Ally McBeal fame in this show. This was a pleasant half-hour on television. We don't have them anymore.
