    The only reason she has any ratings is because of GH. She is flat and boring and for some reason we keep getting shows like this shoved down our throats. It really doesn’t even matter what network now, they are all horrible. Same cop shows, same everything. I might change to either apple tv or something else. I hate almost all of the shows of the broadcast networks. There are some good ones but the majority are horrible. GH FOREVER.
