    David, I will acknowledge something positive when I see it. And believe me you might think so highly of yourself that you think because you say something it proves it but get over yourself — it doesn’t. Just because you say balance is there doesn’t prove it. I even showed 2 weeks ago that balance was better under Wolfe but you wouldn’t even acknowledge that. You still ignore that but yet you say that others ignore what you see and say is so.

    Just like you still won’t acknowledge that Ron C. and Frank V. drove away those over 100,000 viewers in the 18-49. Those numbers are down from the end of May several months after they took over.

    And why do you keep pointing out it was Phelps that did this or that. I have never once said that it wasn’t. You can’t make Ron C. or Frank V. look any better than they are by doing that. I hate when someone tries to point out someone else’s bad traits to try and make someone look better. If you can’t prove what I said about Ron C. and Frank V. any other way then you are going to do it by pointing out something I already know.

    Just because Phelps is the one who fired her or Charleson still doesn’t make it any better that Ron C. or Frank V. don’t use them now. That is totally on them. That is their decision and it is their decision to use the OLTL folks the way they do. And they have to answer for that. What you said still doesn’t take that away.

    As much as you try to make your 2 golden boys look good you don’t succeed and I’ll still call them out on their sh*t when it stinks.

    And if I keep looking like a hater so be it because with each post you just come off as a big cry baby who has his head stuck so far up Ron C.’s butt you can’t see anything.

    And by the way if you will go back to last week’s posts when you continued to call me a hater I had some positive things to say about Ron C. and Frank V. but of course that doesn’t suit you as you just keep wanting to see things only as the gospel of David says it is.

    In the gospel of David you can only kiss the ground that Ron C. and Frank V. walk on or you are a hater. Get over it David. You may appointed them to sainthood but the rest of the world didn’t get the memo.

  • David

    Again you never once proved that it was any better under Wolfe. Under Wolfe Sonny/Jason/Carly were on constantly In fact Sonny was the “episode hog” as you like to refer to it. So you need to get over yourself, go take care of your health.

    Your hatred is obvious in every post you make. All you have done is try to make out Ron and Frank to look bad, when your posted wrong you tell people to get over themselves.

    Well get your head out of your own ass although my bet is that is the stinkiest ass on the planet earth.

    If you notice I manage to have discussions with others with no problem, even when we disagree, because they don’t exagerrate facts and try to make things like so negative on everything.

    Maybe it’s your health I don’t know but you really are a bitter old man who is wasting his life away hating on a show he says sucks. Pretty pathetic if you ask me

    What is funny Richard is you act like you know all with you at the helm GH would last 2 days before crashing in the ratings. I mean I can only imagine I mean you would probably book a major story with Rachel Ames changing her depends. I hear you are an expert on that so I am sure you would make it at least be realistic

  • PJ

    Nice to see the two crybabies are it again, so much for ignoring each other

  • Jeff

    latest ratings, GH up almost 150k, DOOL 220k, but GH down 8k in demo. I really think the ratings are not all that accurate. I truly don’t believe that’s possible given they are up that much in total ratings. Wondering what big surprise is on Monday’s GH????

    One Life was the best written show even when they yanked it. The stories kept you guessing plus they had some humor. I don’t know what happened when the writers went to GH. They started out good but lately I have been disappointed. I agree they should get rid of Joe, Kate, Shawn and Johnny.

  • carol gerald

    Y&R started going downhill when they brought on all those AMC actors. It started looking like an AMC Annex. Really, letting Eileen Davidson go and keeping Genie Francis.
