R.I.P. SoapNet!

Sorry, all of you Dynasty re-run addicts! It's time to say good-bye!

In a surprise move, Disney is closing down shop on its SoapNet channel and launching the pre-school oriented Disney Junior channel in its place!

"The decision to ultimately transition SoapNet to accomplish this was not arrived at lightly. SoapNet was created in 2000 to give daytime viewers the ability to watch time-shifted soaps, before multi-platform viewing and DVRs were part of our vocabulary. But today, as technology and our businesses evolve, it makes more sense to align this distribution with a preschool channel that builds on the core strengths of our company."

We wonder how this new channel will fare against the already established PBS Kids and Nick, Jr.!

What do U think?? Is Disney making a smart move replacing their soaps with more children's programming??
