    im not the only post saying it .viewers tune in in hopes to see there favorites frank and ron know what there doing they give us Felicia one day anna and duke a couple days and even heather frank and ron know it will bring in viewers . and I cant blame them because abc gives the show so little money to work with. and I don’t think its robin who will bring in the rating its Robert and anna . media allways does that with chracther and actors they like they do it with brenda Vanessa marcel all the time and the ratings hardly go up.

    what people are posting is not going to matter what the ratings results are

    robert yes they bring those characters on but numbers are not always up and like i said the last 3 to 4 weeks of high ratings the numbers have been up with out those characters on. they have a place on the show but to downplay that the others mean nothing is just not true.

    and it doesnt matter what is said on a message board ABC is only going to look at the actual numbers.

    i am sure robin’s return will also increase the ratings but the last few weeks cannot be attributed to vets since they were not on. if they don’t give the vets a good story then people won’t watch

    the surprising thing i have seen as of late has been people saying they are enjoying the mob stuff(something people used to complain about all the time) and now there are posts i have seen in different threads here and on a couple other boards with people liking Franco and Carlo when a couple months ago people were complaining about it

    Just saw last weeks Maxie baby reveal episode on GH and was disappointed in nu-Lulu Emme Rylan. What should have been a highly emotional scene wasn’t. She blew it!

    ABC just released another press release(3 weeks in a row, haven’t seen that in a long time!)

    Looks like another good week for GH, hope the other soaps did as well

    “General Hospital” qualified as the #1 program in daytime for the 7th consecutive week in Women 18-34 (263,000/0.8 rating), and ranked a competitive #2 in Women 18-49 (718,000/1.1 rating) and Women 25-54 (921,000/1.5 rating), registering solid year to year gains.

    Year to year, “General Hospital” climbed by 14% in Women 18-34 (263,000 vs. 231,000), by 8% in Women 18-49 (718,000 vs. 663,000) and by 9% in Women 25-54 (921,000 vs. 844,000).
