NBC (ended 1999)
|A couple years back they started airing sb again and they stoped showing it in the middle of coles search for caitlin, does anyone know whether they plan to finish showing the rest of it, I mean they didn't even show a full year of sb|
|I wrote back stating this was probably because it was on at 4 am on a Saturday and Sunday morning, when most people are asleep, plus they did not advertise...|
It was being compared to shows that had been on the air for over 30+ years. Sunset Beach actually had a lot of "new to soap" viewers, considering it was only around for 3 years, but it was cancelled before getting a chance to attract more fans. I absolutely LOVED this show. It would be wonderful if they ever got it back on the air, but it is doubtful, as it has been so long since it was cancelled.
The networks did the same thing with Port Charles - just when it was getting interesting, and had a great cast, they pulled the plug. It is so sad, because, both shows would have been able to attract "younger" viewers, who would be able to start watching and catch on to the storylines without having to be confused with decades of past characters, etc. These newer soaps were a little crazy at times, but entertaining. Are any of the cast members available? Now that there is the internet and Soap Net, maybe bringing them back wouldn't be so far fetched. Are any of the "powers that be" listening out there?
I had never seen an episode on tv of Sunset Beach, i really adore Sunset Beach.. Sadly they never aired an episode so far as i can remember.. If they had i was only 4 years old when it started. After that they never aired it in the Netherlands.. Thanks to 2 people on youtube now i can watch my favorite drama-serie..
