    I believe the reason Days numbers are up is because we weren’t subjected to seeing the Daniel and Jennifer Show like we were for weeks!

  • Chrisann D

    Amanda you didnt change tbe date. These are from May 6-10. Nice rebound for GH even if the show is a trainwreck right now. I mean you have Kristen Alderson playing a character named Kiki. Cant get much worse.

  • Heather

    After the sad news that came out yesterday about AMC and OLTL (which, as far as I’m concerned, are on their way to get cancelled again), it’s good to hear positive news about the four network soaps. I wish them all well.

  • Mike

    Glad all the soaps are back up. Wish it had been more but at least they recovered some of what they lost last week.

    But it is Spring and daylight savings time. So this up and down is expected this time of the year.

    Days reminds me of the old story The Little Engine That Could. Every time you count it out it seems to keep going. The only one of the 4 shows that is up from last year in the 2 key demos. And a few months ago it was constantly 4th every day of the week.

    Anyway hopefully all 4 of the soaps get out of this big up and down cycle soon and sort of stabilize again.

    And as far as calling out haters….the better thing would be calling out the fans of the shows. All 4 shows have fans who have a bad tendancy of when the ratings are down not coming into these type threads to show their support for their show, but then when ratings are up they come in to boast how good their show is and how it’s going to take over the world, etc. etc. etc. then they disappear again when their soaps ratings go down. To me fickle fans are worse than any so called hater.

  • Sean

    Bizzarr We rock!!! GH forever!

  • Dave

    Great to see GH rise of course you still have your haters but GH is doing great! Like Mike aka Richard glad soaps rebounded, has your eye sight rebounded? How are your sugars today?

  • bizzarr1000

    im happy for all the soaps im on here when the ratings are good and bad and i have watch y&r this week it seems to me there copying dante and lulu storyline with that cop and new abby

  • Bex

    Congrats to all the soaps!

  • Bex

    @Bizzarr Copying GH? What has Y&R started pulling 1.8/1.9? You clearly don’t watch Y&R on a regular basis if you think Abby/Alex are copy-cats of Dante/Lulu.

  • PatF

    Good for all the shows. Big year over year increases from GH and B and B.

    B and B’s rise continues to amaze me.

  • bizzarr1000

    then u never watched gh with dante lulu storyline then maybe its not copying butt it seems alot alike im not trying to bash y&r butt u seem to want to bash

  • bizzarr1000

    im even watching amc and oltl
