It's Official: ABC Hates Scorpios
ABC/SOAPNet hates the fictional Scorpio family. There is no other logical explanation for the minimal screentime given the talented portrayers of members of that clan, nor for this....thing:
I watch General Hospital every day. Kimberly McCullough may not be on-screen nearly enough for my liking, but I am certain that when she is, she has neither a double chin nor a wonky eye. And Tristan Rogers is not, as I recall from his five minutes of screentime a year or more ago, a reanimated corpse. Why then, does this promotional tool, presumably designed to make people actually want to tune in (to a show that can't exactly rest on its storytelling laurels), convey the opposite impression on both counts?
Also -- and I can't believe I actually have to encourage SOAPNet to cater better to viewers' base instincts -- if you have Jason Thompson and Antonio Sabato Jr. as your two male leads on a show whose target demographic is straight women and probably gay men, you put them AT THE FRONT OF THE AD. Hell, you make your ads just shot after shot of the two of them in various states of undress and/or Blue Steel poses. They are hotness in stereo. Turn up the volume, ABC! Even you shouldn't be able to screw this up.
