    jonboy you are hilarious. It took me awhile too but it’s “public display (of) affection” — I think?

  • TimsDale4ever

    If you aren’t watching Y&R I wouldn’t start. The new regime for whatever reason has reduced this show to 4 characters with a few filler scenes in between — Adam/Chelsea and Nick/Avery, and what makes it really bad is both of the stories are boring to boot. Ratings up to this week have continued to fall so I just don’t get it. How much money do these people make? Lord, a first grader could create a more interesting show. ?????

    I’m hoping for better things at Y&R; right now, the only soap I watch with any frequency. But yep, it is currently all about a few characters – no ensemble approach so far.

    Ratings are up at SON; should be posted here shortly. Caption is that ‘all soaps up’. Considering prior week not counted due to service disruptions because of the storm, not sure how they are spinning this. But all except Y&R are ahead of 2011 #s.
