    SRY Y&R FANS I CANT GET INTO IT IM WATCHING NOW THE MAC STORYLINE I LIKE THATS IT

  • bizzarr

    Y&R AT HOSPITAL IS IT GH BRAIN DAMAGE ON Y&R REALLY STERE BURTON SHOULD BE GOOD AT THIS

  • Mike

    I never understand soap fans who think if they put down the other shows or another show then that makes their show look better. Sorry but that is a big fail to me. All you do is make your show look worse to me. It just says to me that my show is so bad I can’t make it look good any other way but to put down other shows.

    Tell me what is good about your show. All you do is make me tune out what your saying when you constantly put down other shows to make your show look good.

    And frankly I love the CBS shows and they are what I like. We all watch what we like….and that is the way it should be.

  • Kayla Rae

    I have no problem with folks expressing their viewpoints(be they positive and/or negative) on any/all of the shows. I know what I like and I have no problem if you disagree with me. I don’t see why it bothers others to hear negatives about “their” show(s). Se la vie.

    I know that I love DOOL and find it far more interesting than any of the other soaps. I will be watching some of GH now to see Laura’s return. There is not much more about that soap that interests me quite frankly. Though I must admit I do like a few doses of crazy Heather from time to time!

    The CBS soaps just don’t do anything for me at all.

  • Stephen Judson

    I watch all the soaps, but I love GH and Y&R. Surprisingly Y&R is a lot better under JFP, and I’m shocked.

    The dialogue on Days is not that great to me, and I find that the show is going in shambles under the current writing. And I find B&B to be repetitive. But people have an option to like what they like. Glad that soaps as a whole are up vs last year.

  • Joie

    Well said Mike.

  • Mike

    I have no problem with folks being negative about a show. Say what you don’t like about a show, I really don’t care. You can complain about Y&R or B&B all day if you want, I don’t care. I know what I like about it and what I don’t like. In fact a few weeks ago and months ago, I was attacking my shows too. And I will again when they need it. I give my shows props when they deserve them, and if they don’t they get what they deserve.

    I don’t get all wound up in it. And I definitely know that it is a TV show and I am not going to whine and cry if you say something bad about my TV show.

    But statements like “I don’t see why people watch those dumb shows” or my show is so much better than said show…..the others just suck….just sound lame and childish and don’t tell me anything at all.

    If a person wants me to consider watching their show then tell me what is good about your show and then I might consider it. Simply attacking another show to make your show look better doesn’t help at all. In fact it makes the other person defensive and they are going to tune out anything you have good to say about your show.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Y&R misses the boat so many times with their storylines. My jaw must have hit the floor when Summer confessed to her mother Phyllis that she indeed did send hateful messages to Jaime, and Phyllis said absolutely NOTHING to her daughter about how her actions drove this boy to perhaps commit suicide. Huh???? Instead, the 2 girls immediately started this giggly, girly talk about Phyllis’ girlfriend/boyfriend relationship with Jack. WTF????? Totally stupid writing. Where’s the comeuppance to her behavior? Why isn’t Michael and Lauren balling Fen out in his part in all this too?

  • Kayla Rae

    I doubt that anyone is going to watch another show based upon what anyone says on this forum. Simply put: people will watch what interests them based upon their own likes or dislikes, not what someone else’s opinions are.

  • Jeff

    Just say some talk show ratings, and GH is about 50% or higher in all demos than the CHEW, almost beats the View in ratings, and beats the View handily in all demos, and B&B and Y&R do the same with the TALK, and they are way higher rated period. I know they are cheaper, but makes me wonder how much money they can be making when the soaps blow these shows away in ratings and demos. And, as always, this doesn’t count other revenue sources like SoapNet, online viewings on the network websites, etc. I am sure the soaps kill the talk shows in those places too. Would love for the networks to release data on how many times the soaps are viewed online or gather a total viewership #’s. I am guessing the soaps rival some of the lower to mid rated primetime shows in terms of ratings and demos when all viewings are counted.

  • Pat

    If any of the shows maintains a 2.0 or higher, I think they are safe.

    And with Days and GH finally hitting that, we should have all shows around for while.

    PLUS NBC has NOTHING else, and ABC isn’t in much better shape with its lineup. CBS has a full successful Daytime lineup right now with it’s soaps, game shows and the Talk.

  • bizzarr

  • bizzarr

  • jackieO

    GH is doing so well compared to last year

  • Mike

    MzDiana….Genie Francis did not leave Y&R to go back to GH. She was fired at Y&R which made her available to GH.

    As much as I love Genie Francis I was not in the least upset about her being fired this time from Y&R. Many that have been fired on Y&R played characters that didn’t fit.

  • bizzarr

    TO ME GH HAS A DARK LOOK LUKE LAURA SCOTTY BACK IT SHOULD BE GOOD

  • bizzarr

    I DONT CARE WHY GENIE IS BACK JUST GLAD SHE IS SHE WILL ALLWAYS BE LAURA
