So, ABC's costcutting decision to remove the "next on" previews at the end of the show has me wondering . . . how much of an effect do those previews have on general soap viewing? Have they damaged soaps at all during th decade roughly) that they've been attached to soaps?
I know for me, if I know for a fact that my fav is on the next day, i'll definately watch, but then sometimes they go with a perfectly stunning cliffhanger (Emily flying off the rooftop) to spoiling it during the preview.
And then, there's the internet, which a lot of spoilers get leaked on (especially GH-or maybe I'm just good at hunting them up) I know the internet spoilers have hurt soaps, less suspense to the major stories. Any thoughts?
