    jon and steve, I really am glad you are enjoying Y&R– I just don’t get the things they are so focused on. That TAG & GRAB BullS. needs to go now. I can’t believe how much time they have spent on this silly nonsense already. I’m WAY over Nick and Avery making goo goo eyes at each other for the 10,000th time, and it’s disgusting having Nick hit on his ex’s sister anyway — GROSS! They brought Jill back and she’s done absolutely nothing worthwhile since hitting GC again. ???? Adam and Chelsea = z.zz..zzz…zzzzzzzzzzzz. I refuse to give up until 2013 though…

    GH is back!

  • Janet

    I watch GH, B&B and Y&R. GH is the best. Love Duke, Fiason, Robert, Anna and Robin. Love Maxie, Dante and Lulu planning a baby. Love the nurses ball. Y&R – love Chelsea and Adam. The rest is boring. B&B – I’m having a difficult time watching. I hate the Logan show. Brooke hitting on both Bill and Eric is disgusting. I can’t wait until GH is number 2 and B&B is number 3. That is what the writing and direction of the show deserves. I just don’t understand how B&B gain viewers. If newbie reads any boards, they would turn on GH or even DOOL.
