    The only soaps I watch these days are Y&R and DOOL. The good news all of the soaps except for GH are up from last year in women 18-49. I haven’t watched GH for over a year now, so I don’t know what is the reason for there drop in viewers. I am happy to see that DOOL is no longer in last place. Both Y&R and DOOL have been worth watching lately.

  • Deshawn

    People keep hatin on gh it’s been good this whole week people not giving the soap a chance stop complaining you don’t have nothing good to say don’t so nothing I hate negativity all the soaps are boring not just gh so stop hating

  • Chrisann D

    So sad to see soaps down. Still loving GH, Days and Y&R. Love how Y&R is show casing a couple trying to put their marriage together after infidelity. Riveting and so real to life. I hope all the soaps rise in next weeks ratings. GO SOAPS!!

  • Kelby

    I think DOOL has a pretty good group of actors these days, but the storylines are awful. Y&R has way more questionable actors these days. What in the world! Y&Rs storylines are awful as well. These shows are pitiful! Get it together! I smell cancellations coming.

  • DB

    I read that DOOL, Y&R and B&B have renewed for another year. I haven’t read anything about GH being renewed.

  • Dee

    Haha @ GH! That show is so awful. I have seen it bad, and I have seen it ugly but never this bad or this ugly. LMAO at the Cartini fans are so blinded by their adoration for these 2 bums that they can’t see what a total mess they have made of a great show. The Franco/RH thing is horrible. We never see actual Quartermaines in the mansion. Just Kiki and Freako stinking up the place. And please don’t get me started on the mess that is Silas. Michael Easton is a terrible actor!

    This isn’t GH. This is RC’s haven for lost and jobless One Life to Live actors!

  • Dee

    GH will be cancelled imminently if they don’t fire the monkeys running the show right now.

  • Mike

    I wish fans would just accept that some weeks fans don’t want to watch, have things that get in the way and can’t watch, or the stories just don’t interest them. Or this time of the year there are vacations to be taken, time to spend with the kids, the park is calling, the swimming pool is calling, the garden is calling, and so forth.

    It just comes off as pitiful when fans grasp at straws to come up with an excuse for the ratings being low….it can’t obviously be they just didn’t watch.

    The latest is that people were getting ready to start watching the Trayvon Martin case so they tuned out of their soaps last week. If that is the case then I wouldn’t count on ratings being back up until the Martin case ends and they say it will probably go a month.

    I heard more people talking about watching the Jodi Arias trial than I have the Martin trial, and ratings didn’t go down during it.

    And what does it say about your favorite soap if a trial is more important to you to watch than your favorite soap.

    I’m surprised that some of these newly appoint soap fan judges haven’t yelled that any true soap fan wouldn’t do that. After all they never fail to remind everyone daily who is a true soap fan and who isn’t.

  • Dee

    Y&R – I hope the ratings climb. This week’s DOOL episodes were pretty boring but I am hoping it rebounds next week. GH and B&B are just beyond terrible, especially GH and there is no hope for it being repaired at this point IMO.

  • lm cee

    Not surprised by GH ratings. We are losing another actor that makes 5 and 1 now on recurring since the horrible team took over. Rumors are we will be losing 2 more this fall. Kristen Storms and Jason Thompson. The only characters and stories that are front and story are the people Ron has hired since he took over. They need to be let go or another writer needs to be hired to help Ron before it’s too late.

  • PatF

    They probably posted the GH logo since it was at an all time low in that stupid “key” demo.

    Since all were down they had to pick one, and GH is in last place.

  • j

    Franco character on gh is so bad,can’t stop lmao.Days has been good.Y&R is going to be interesting to see how MS leaves.The way they are dealing with Summer is slapstick humor instead of soap drama really hate that.Phylliis kissing Kyle lmao.

  • Mike

    I figured they used GH this week since the last few weeks either Y&R or Days has been the ones up so they used them. This week no one was up so they used GH since they haven’t been used in awhile.

    I personally would have loved to have seen B&B’s logo up there. Even though they have been the ones up the most consistent they are never used.

  • tj

    I’ll buy that Pat. True Mike.

  • Sedgrick

    @Im cee really KS may be leaving quick Days go snatch her up so we can get our Belle back and JC aint working either you better get him to Days cause you guys are on fire and just need to get your Shawn and Belle back.

  • Iris Carrington

    Y & R has decided to throw Phyllis and Kyle together. Phyllis is engaged to Kyle’s father. Kyle is also dating Phyllis’ daughter, who also happens to be his sister. Is it any wonder the ratings dropped for this trash.

  • PatF

    And actually DAYS was down the biggest percentage over last week -7.1%…

  • LaLa

    Mike, I see your daytime talker Katie has been cancelled. What do you have to say about the cancellation? We soap fans predicted that it would happen.

  • LaLa

    Monzo, I agree GH ratings should drop with those three ridiculous roles Silas, Kiki, and fake Franco whose doing a poor portray of the real Franco.

  • LaLa

    Hi GHFan, we one life to live fans left when Prospect Park brought OLTL and AMC back to their network TOLN on Hulu those three need to leave GH and return to oltl, GH have good actors they could use instead of those three.
