    I like Victor on Days, hes a cranky/comedic genious! His spars with Chloe and Nicole are awesome. I like that the veterans are back but I also like the Nick, Gabi, Will storyline. I’m not sure how i feel about Kate and Rafe but Stefano is coming back soon so that’ll be fun. Days is doing a great job, FINALLY, just get rid of that muscular angry eyebrowed rat-man named Lucas and bring back Bo and I’m happy :) Oh and MORE nurse Maxine!!!

  • Mike

    JayTN, I agree with you. I have never understood that reasoning either.

    As far as the argument made, I don’t know anyone at all who hardly watches any soaps at all. Most of the people I knew who did have quit. But I am smart enough to know that my friends don’t represent the whole nation.

  • Rachel

    General Hospital is sooo boring same with Days, how can anyone watch those dumb shows?? The acting is horrible on both and the storylines are old and lame

  • Pat

    Jake…your comments don’t make sense.

    I can say the same…no one I know watches Days or GH, but it’s because my entire extended family has always watched CBS due to the part of country we lived and the signals back then.

    But I do know there are millions of soap viewers out there.

    I’m sorry that your shows aren’t performing as well, however we all need to be behind all the shows. It’s important for the remaining four to co-exist.

    GH HAS A MIX OF OLD IN NEW SO MENNY STORYLINE Y&R & B&B SAME CRAP OVER AND OVER I CANT WATCH CBS

  • diana

    Woo-hoo, GH got over 3 million viewers on Monday, Feb. 4, the day Jack Wagner arrived, I’ll bet ratings will be even higher for Feb. 11, with Genie Francis. And today, Luke&Laura come face-to-face! GH is a lot of fun lately.

  • bizzarr

    ITS FUNNY HOW ALOT OF GUYS I KNOW WATCH GH THANKS TO RON AND FRANK THEY SAVED GH

  • MzDiana

    I’ve been a fan of both Y&R & BB. The story. lines are getting better. I hope Adam &Chelsea get back together! Sick of the role of Sharon always in his life and other marriages. Maybe her & Mac would make a good couple! Also on BB I’m sick of the Logan’s getting everything and anyone they want! I pray they keep Steffy & Liam together! I love her character, Hope on the other hand should get back with Oliver! She’s so Fake, immature, now emulating Brooke in the past! She’s been married to every Forrester on the show! Don’t like how the role is changing for Bill,they’re taking away his harbour image: -( . They need to find a partner for Thomas also, someone new, not someone like Caroline who’s a reminder of Ridge’s past. Again I hope Steffy & Liam stay together and have a family instead of history repeating itself from the days of Brooke & Taylor. What happened to Jackie and that whole story line & Jack Wagner?

  • bizzarr

    TWO ME GH IS MORE A GUY SHOW THATS WHY I LIKE IT I NEVER KNOW IF ABC WILL KEEP GH CBS SEEMS HAPPY WITH THERE TWO SHOWS

  • bizzarr

    JACK WAGNER BACK ON GH @MIZDIANA

  • MzDiana

  • bizzarr

    IF YOUR A FAN OF SOAPS WATCH THEM ALL IF U CAN THERES JUST 4 LEFT ON TV

  • bizzarr

    SO WAS IT A SOAP TRADE FRISCO FOR JASON

  • MzDiana

    @Bizzar thanks that explains it. Really like him. Genie Francis left Y&R to go back to GH. I used to watch that show as a kid when it was all about Luke & Laura. There’s a new guy on Y&R that was either on Days or OLTL. Not sure but I remember seeing him on one of the Soaps,. He’s a Hispanic guy playing the part of a cop. Easy on this eyes!

  • MzDiana

    I LOVE SOAPS! I HATE REALITY TV ! THERE’S NOTHING REAL ABOUT THE MAJORITY OF THOSE SHOWS! THEY ARE TAKING OVER ALL THE GOOD STUFF ON TV!

  • bizzarr

    I LIKE GOOD STORYLINES IF ITS GOOD I WILL WATCH

  • Shelly

    Glad to see all soaps back on track. If you have a favorite; watch, watch, watch. Do not let talk shows take over.

  • bizzarr

    STARTING THIS FALL TWITTER WILL HELP IN RATINGS FOR SOAPS

  • bizzarr

    SO WILL ANY OF YOU WATCH THE NEW AMC OR OLTL
