It’s Insane No One Cares About ABC Family Changing Their Name To “Freeform”

I swear I think I’m the only one who cares about this, but I’m a man who doesn’t like changes, and deep down everyone i think is a little afraid of changes. If not Landslide wouldn’t be such a hit. But this “FreeformTV” change should be one that rattles people to the core. Not just talking about anyone who watches TV but like investors and stock holders and CEOs should’ve veto-ed this move. Its not a channel people watch on the reg i don’t think, but its seasonal and important for America’s pop culture landscape. Here I was scrolling through my Twitter (@EdLeeFLA5), and out of no where i saw post after post about this “FreeformTV” and thought spam accounts hacked my shit and added them self to my account. After I clicked on it and scrolled through some tweets then I realized it was ABC Family. Now I know what some of you might be thinking, “Hey Ed, what are you doing following ABC Family, are you a 15 year old girl?!” I follow it because they’re important to me and America in these cold seasons. ABC Family for the longest time has been a sneaky dark horse favorite channel because when fall hits, they get seasonal and nostalgic with their movie selections. Once October hits, its movies like Hocus Pocus, Harry Potter Marathons, Home Alone. All those movies I saw growing up show up out of no where and it brings me back to a simpler time in life. Its brand recognition. I will never get rid of ABC family because a couple of months out of a year they might occasionally show a movie I like. This “FreeformTV” can get the fuck out of my TV guide channel. Honestly how did the suits at ABC approve this? Sure lets take a long standing house hold brand name, and just change it entirely so it sounds like some PC ambiguous channel that no ones ever heard of. Its absurd.
