ABC will be transitioning Soapnet, the 24 hour soap cable soap channel, into yet another Disney channel, Disney Junior. The new Disney will feature programming geared towards preschool age children and their families. The change is set to take place in 2012. I can't say this comes as a surprise at all (relive my Soapnet rant from last year by clicking here). Soapnet has steadily declined it's soap related programming, opting for tired Lifetime movies and ill fated reality shows. Once Soap Talk was canceled, it was the beginning of the end. What shame. The only channel devoted to soap fans will soon be nothing but a memory.
