    GO GH!!! Solid as a stone…HAHA To all the haters! GH IS AWESOME!

  • cc

    GH should start to rise again with all these reveals, while Days continues to think Ejami and Daniel are soap magic. Hahahaha

  • Derrick

    Great for Y&R and DAYS!

  • Robbee 66

    Great for GH! It keeps getting better. Having to rename and redo Prospect Park characters threw them for a loop for awhile. NO MORE. Hiring Maura West was genius.

  • Greg

    Not watching Y & R but good for them!!!!! And good for B & B too! Don’t watch either one of these shows but proud of them. Only watch GH and DOOL on occasion. I’m more addicted now to AMC and OLTL on hulu. GREAT GREAT GREAT storylines on both AMC and OLTL!!!

  • Bex

    HAHA to the haters with those numbers? Waiting for the disappearing act in 3..2..

  • Bex

    Not surprised Y&R had such a fantastic growth, I mean the show has been on FIRE! The paternity twist, MS exit, the Michael/Lauren drama, I mean burning Cajun hot. Someone cool this FIRE. LOL

  • Mike

    Y&R has been fantastic lately. Loving it. Proud to see the gains.

    Big numbers up for last year for both Y&R and B&B. Good job on that.

    Days had the best week with the rise in Total Viewers and the only one to rise in the key demo of 18-49

  • dan

    I wonder how amc and oltl are doing. ….gh is getting better with the exception of that ridiculous franco story

  • DenverDean

    B&B is still the real story here. Up 500+ for last year – again. 1K slip from last week is hardly important.

  • Doug

    AMC/OLTL had a wobbly start, but increased quite a bit in week 2. Both averaged around 150,000 viewers for their new episodes, peaking at nearly 200,000, which was up over what OWN was doing before that. I would expect that numbers will continue to grow as more viewers discover the new home.

  • Eddie

    DAYS continues to hold that 3rd spot. DAYS has some good storylines going right now. Much better than this time last year. The only bad thing is they should do something to keep the young actor who plays Will. He is very good!

  • Sophie

    Loving GH so much, it’s really getting so good. A must see for me!!!!
    Can’t wait for the next episode!!! Saw Days the other Day and to me it was all new people… Couldn’t get into it! EJAMI = BORING!

  • MM

    Great GH! RC is clearly,I want to think responding to the fans demands, digging into the history of the show but of course he is a fan of GH!

    The Jerome Mob Family revisted is getting good!
    Ava & Julian,siblings and Julian is Sam’s father,
    thank God it is not Jerry Jacks!!

    And people were worried about GH!!

  • LynTex

    Glad to see some Y&R fans returned for Phyllis’ exit.

  • j

    The prosecutor on Days is awful.Stefano’s lady friend(being nice)is ridiculous.Asians should have better roles than that.Glad Kristen is leaving b/c it is starting to get old.Will and Sonny have so much to offer but won’t get the scenes that straight couples do.

  • PatF

    Great for YR…loving the paternity story!!!

  • Barry

    It’s good for all the soaps! I now DVR OLTL on OWN. I’m very happy to be able to watch it on tv and not my computer. First time I’ve written anything on here in many months because of the negativity. Nice to see it a little calmer, at least right now. lol

  • lampshade

    Good to see BB holding steady and DOOL up in both viewers and key demo. While I like EJ and Sami-you can have too much of a good thing! But seeing announcements like Eileen Davidson leaving in the fall, and the previous ones of Chandler Massey, Casey Diedriks and Kate Manzi also leaving around the same time, is oncerning.
    DOOL needs to enhance mainstays like Hope and Marlena, but also needs to develop the newbies in a meaningful way. I think this time next year DOOL will look and feel very differently.
    I caught a two episodes of Y&R last week-very good, not surprised ratings are up.

  • lampshade

    @J. I disagree with you about Kristen leaving. It will be a blow to DOOL-paraphrasing Ken Corday, Kristen’s return was a much needed shot in the arm, and it has helped ratings. I think DOOL has approached Will/Sonny very well, bearing in mind it is daytime TV. I suppose they haven’t bed-hoped the way ‘straight’ couples have been portrayed, but I think that has been refreshing. The initial focus from them being a gay couple has progressed to them being embroiled in other central storylines, where them being gay is not an issue at all. I welcome and applaud that.
