    Y&R is just not that good to be #1 for decades, some years were terrible.
    There has to be something rigged with its ratings for it be near 5 million.
    Y&R can no way be #1 for decades, it is not probable; the soap is simply not that good.
    CBS airs their soaps internationally in 32 countries and some how that must have an effect of their numbers.

    GH airing in USA and Canada is an excellent soap and the best soap, by far..
    ((I am a fan of both Y&R and GH and watch both..

    “General Hospital” has literally been on fire here lately. I have been watching this show since 1992 and I honestly think it is on par with the excellent stories “GH” was showcasing around 1994 and 1995. Yes, THAT good.

    “Days of Our Lives” on the other hand. Quit that show way back in 1987 when it started becoming the soap opera version of “The Jerry Springer Show.” Never looked back.

    DAYS has gone through many facelifts over the past 26 years. Give it a fair shot today before you knock it. You might be pleasantly surprised. Personally, I think the stories over the past year have been the strongest they’ve been in many, many years. Overall, this show has been so entertaining, so satisfying, so engaging and exciting over the year, with great umbrella stories that have interesting layers, reach fantastic climaxes, spawn other great stories, involve many characters and give the actors juicy material to play with.

    If you love good soap, then what it was like when Reagan was president shouldn’t have any bearing on what it is like today. I’m only one person and it’s only my opinion, but I couldn’t be prouder of the soap it’s producing these days.

    Days of Our Lives is great and stronger than ever (largely in part) because of WILSON and the Producers know that – that’s why they want to make sure that the role of Will
    continues to go on after the upcoming New Year.

    I hope you’re a fan of DAYS as a whole.

    Without Wilson there is no DAYS and I am certain a deliberate move in that direction is coming soon or DAYS is done in general.Check next ratings without Chandler.

    You do NOT know what you are talking about! DAYS has never been all about one thing. Many people contribute to the successes and failures
    of DOOL. Chandler/Will does not make or break DAYS. No one does!!!

    Glad ratings are up. Just keep getting tired of only hearing about the key demo. Remember it’s all the rest of us that aren’t in the demo that have helped keeps soaps afloat over the years. Show us some respect!

    So happy to see the ratings increased for ALL soaps..I have a great feeling that soaps will be continuing to make a surge and hopefully the younger generation will increase and make the genre relevant again and eventually further increase the ratings where MAYBE serial dramas can expand in daytime or maybe bring iconic soaps back in television/internet, like Prospect Park is doing or did with AMC/OLTL.

    I wish the ratings reflected the high entertainment value. DOOL and GH
    should be way higher in the ratings! I’m not saying YawneR should go
    down. The other hourlong soaps should just be obove YackeR. Maybe
    next YeaR.

    GH and DAYS are doing awesome. Both shows are great, and I wish their numbers were higher. It’s hard to believe that a show can stay on nowadays with only 2 to 3 million viewers, but I guess TV is saturated, and I’m not sure the rating system is accurate anyway. Y&R was my favorite all the way up until the late 00′s, early 10′s, but it has been systematically destroyed by the axis of awful show runners: LML, MAB, JFP. Maybe Y&R should hire their next show runner with only one first name and one last name, like Jared ********. LOL. Y&R DESERVED to be number one from the 80′s until about 2006. It WAS the best soap. Now, DAYS and GH deserve the accolades, and more people should watch. I took in B&B today, just for background noise. I can see the appeal, but the show is beyond trash, and maybe that’s the purpose, “pedigreed” people behaving badly. I know Hope is not a very old character, as Deacon wasn’t on THAT long ago, but the adult version is quite the stunning beauty. Watching her walk that runway in all her beauty and glory had my chin on the floor. I guess that’s why it’s called “The Bold and the Beautiful.

    I thought B&B was some kind of soap parody. ONE BIG JOKE. People
    should run their hands through the sands!
