    How are the ratings/viewership figures?

    I’m kind of excited. But nothing still will compare to the soaps during the 80s. The adventure and the music is what made a soap what its suppose to be. Making them less campy I understand but then they don’t stand out. Today people want things that stand out and making them too realistic isn’t going to bring in that many new viewers. All the same I’ll be watching OLTL to see how it is. Would love if Cord and Tina would join the other vets.

    Now if they’d only bring back DARK SHADOWS

    I just watched the trailers for both.
    And I must say as a true fan I am kinda excited!!
    The sets look amazing. Lets hope the stories are equally amazing.
    Supposedly they are to be hipper and the characters talk like real people.
    The new new talent looks great,hope they can act!
    I have a good feeling about these.
    But how are they going to determine success,there’s no rating system,right??
    Anyway,I am glad it is free,but those annoying commercials but of course that’s money for them!

    Darn! I’m in Canada i won’t be able to watch, Hulu is not available here.

  • MBmomof3

    So freaking excited! Can’t wait! Love me some soaps!

  • MBmomof3

    @Scandalfan, It was announced that FXCanada will carry OLTL & AMC on cable. Not familiar with Canadian media, but I saw it on Michael Fairman’s On Air On Soaps website. Great site for soap fans.

    Bill, any idea on how a ratings system is going to work? Thinking it’ll be how the broadcast networks keep track of shows they put online on their websites. Viewership numbers I can see as close to accurate but demo numbers would seem more challenging.
