    Great to see Days ratings are up in all categories. It is especially good to watch right now with very exciting storylines in place. Try it you’ll like it!

    Mike, I think she’s already taken away the signature look of the show. Thankfully the writing is better.

    I can continue to watch since that’s such an improvement. As long as the core characters are still there and written for…it’ll stay in decent shape.

    I still have Y&R on my tv but in the past few weeks I notice I am not totally watching it. I get up and do other things while its on and sit down to watch every once in a while. Not holding my interest anymore. The Adam/Chelsea/Dylan triangle interests me….but not much else. Summers crush on ugly Kyle just doesn’t cut it and….well, is there really anything else happening? Over on GH I feel they inundated us with too many new characters/ faces all at once. New Lulu, new Morgan, Ava, Kikki (can’t stand the brat, bring back Starr), Silas and faux Todd. I don’t care about any of them.

  • PatF

    I actually am warming up to Dylan now that he’s not being crammed down our throats with that horrible backstory with Avery.

    Also loving the paternity story, and still Michael and Lauren. So for once at least for about the last three weeks (maybe due to sweeps) Y and R is back on a roll.

    Loving Traci being back too. Keep the vets on the screen.

    Mike…CBS put out a press release about “The Talk”, which spent last week in New York City. According to the release, “The Talk” increased in viewers by 5% (to 2.43 million viewers) from both the previous week and one year ago (also when “The Talk” filmed in NYC). Among the demographics, “The Talk” was up 10% in W25-54 compared to the previous week and one year ago; and up 17% in W18-49 from the previous week and flat compared to the same week last year.

  • Mike

    JayTN — I saw that one a little bit ago. May sweeps has been light on PR from the networks for daytime. Maybe the soaps held this week. Will be interesting to see.

    it seems all the shows are geting all back on track

    DOOL rocks! I am so loving it! Go Days!
