    Jay , I was wondering what ‘unk” was. Some people never learn. In Iowa now for the last 8 months. Love it here. Hope Tennessee is treating you well.

    Looked at the numbers for last week on SON. Very good week for all the soaps. Demo’s are pretty solid for everyone and up a lot over last year in viewers and demos. Good to see.

  • Mike

    The only thing I hate about the numbers at SON is they are not for a full week and traditionally that means the next week we are in for big drops. I hope the soaps will buck the trend this year.

    Numbers looked great for last week. It was a short week it was also the first week with school back in and a week that numbers tend to trend up. Will have to see what happens next week.

    Interesting to see that the focus of GH last week was Sonny and the 18-49 hit an all time high for the FV/RC regime.

    Gosh, there’s more drama on here between the posters than on some of the soaps!
