    It’s good to see all the daytime soaps doing well. I think the soap ratings for Thanksgiving week will be high.


  2. Janet says:

    I don’t care about The Talk. But I’m very happy for Y&R and B&B. Soaps are not dead unless what some network executives would like to make us think.

    Out of all those shows, I only watch Y&R and I’m not enjoying it.
    I FF through most of the overly boring stuff..
    I continue to watch hoping to see a change and some good entertainment, so far no luck lol ..
    The one good thing, I save my time by FFing through 50% of it :)

    If I had to watch it live (not able to FF) I probably would not watch Y&R…. lol
    so– Y&R is what I watch on CBS daytime, at night via the internet..

    Why the happiness about The Talk’s ratings Michael? It’s not even a soap opera. What will be next? A thread praising the ratings of The Chew?


    lorenzo replied

    the talk is a very good show. the ratings are hitting the roof david. also love the chew, all my children and one life to live, will never come back. at least we can still watch gh days of our lives, young and the restless and the bold and the beautiful. i am happy that all the soaps, are up in the ratings. we are all happy. the soaps are indeed alive.

    I know some ATWT fans are still bitter because it was cancelled and
    replaced by The Talk. I cheer for its success because it promoted Y&R
    and B&B by having their stars on The Talk.

    Glad for CBS. I know some fans of YR are still complaining about the show (mostly Delia) and I don’t like Phelps at all, but I know she’ll eventually be gone, so I’ve stopped with all the negativity about it.

    It’s not bad at all. Some fans from other shows call it “boring”, but the show has always moved slow. I’d NEVER want it to resort to anything remotely resembling GH, nor do I want any of the crazy storylines that sometimes were present under MAB.

    So if you don’t enjoy it…please turn it off…but also stop with the constant complaining about the show and only pointing out the negative. If people continue to do that, it just proves that if they really can’t find anything good about it they shouldn’t watch for now.
