On the heels of yesterday's somewhat surprising news that Oprah Winfrey's OWN network would *save* the once-dead popular TV soap opera series, All My Children and One Life To Live (in an exclusive 40-episode/10-week limited engagement this summer) after previously being adamant about not being interested in them, saying that they weren't an option for the OWN Network, I thought we'd have some fun and open up the floor for your suggestions on what canceled shows you would love for OWN to *save* as well.

My Twitter feed was all abuzz about it, and I believe it was trending in the USA at one point, so, evidently, a lot of you watched it. I don't have the hard numbers yet, so I can't tell you how well it did in terms of viewership and ratings. But I should have them soon enough, and will post here once that happens.

“I guess the way it all shook out, (the ethnicity of [Meagan] Good and [Laz] Alonso) is a way of sort of dealing with race without actually having to talk about it... But it’s not something we really talk about too much in the writers room…I just think it is sort of there. I’m not sure what we could put in the characters’ mouths that would speak louder than the fact of what you’re looking at on-screen.”

I only just found out that it NBC had put the pilot episode online, so I haven't watched it yet, meaning, no commentary from me (at least not within this post).
