More on Soap Opera History
Soap opera began in the early 1900s, as radio broadcasts. Soap companies were behind the conception of the daytime dramas because they wanted to sell soaps to stay-at-home-moms. They did their job and also launched a lifelong programming format, the soap operas.
Spanning more than five decades, American sudsers have seen the rise and fall of daytime soaps. In the heyday of soaps in the early 1980s, there was up to 13 different soap operas broadcasted. However, over the years, the number has declined. Currently, there are only four American soap operas on the air. They Include Days of our Lives (DAYS), General Hospital (GH), The Young and the Restless (YR), The Bold and the Beautiful (BB).
