Log in to Reply Mencha November 5, 2009 P&G must really hate its soaps and the actors, because using CM is just plain insulting. Not only is he an ABC actor, he sucks!! Log in to Reply Crustee November 5, 2009 Really Proctor and Gable? I mean you are really going to use CamMat instead of one of your actors from ATWT? I mean really? It doesn’t matter that you have a talented cast to chose from—you would rather use someone with 1/2 the acting chops? Really?? Is this your subtle way of letting the fans and ATWT cast & crew know that you are canceling the show? I mean really? How nice P&G–you suck–and I mean really! If only Seth Meyers would do something like this on SNL. Well, maybe–they did talk about the end of Guiding L:ight this season.

Cameron Mathieson is one of my favourites. Log in to Reply dschmoot November 12, 2009 I think it shows that P&G can poke fun at the daytime drama genre they created over 70 years ago. Relax posters, it’s just a fun online site that sends up the ridiculous nature of soap operas. Has anyone watched some of the videos, they’re funny. Sandy is in a coma and they throw her a surprise birthday party. It’s hilarious actually. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
