    I can’t stand Aisha Tyler, she talks so much and is always talking over people.

    All this means is that Y&R and B&B had another good week and this show continues to bleed hard out of B&B.

    It’s still a gabfest (and pretty dull) but at least they speak about things other than motherhood. While that’s probably great for mothers, for the rest of us…not so much.

    I think anything would bring in the same ratings in this time slot—-the original plan was to put a game show in this time slot—?incarnation of Pyramid–still hoping CBS may do this eventually—I’m also sick of this “crackling hen party”

    Am so happy they have moved General Hospital opposite The Talk in our area so now I can watch both Days of Our Lives and General Hospital since they aren’t on at same time anymore. I can’t stand any of the women on The Talk. The more they try to be different than The View the more they come off as only a copycat. And….I’m not bragging on The View. Can’t stand that show either.

    Enjoy the escapism of the soaps. Young and Restless is my favorite daytime show.
