    Although I don’t really like or enjoy any of the current GH stories, I can see why the ratings are good. Ron Carlivati has been doing a very good job at day to day suspense and forcing the viewers to “tune in tomorrow”. I don’t like Sonny or stories where he is made to look like a hero. But we are getting that in large doses. I don’t like mob stories…but here we are with a canvas full of mobsters…new , old and returning. I don’t like that AJ is being made out as whipping boy and town pariah. It kind of worked with Billy Warlock in the role due to his height and little boy quality but Sean Kanan is a man, built like a refrigerator, and he could take greasy thug Sonny down any time. Sonny is only a big powerful man with a gun in his hand. I don’t like sick children stories…here we are in the middle of yet ANOTHER one with little Danny. So basically I don’t like or enjoy any of the major stories. However there is enough I do like to keep me watching. I don’t agree with many of Ron’s choices and stories…but he is a master at interweaving stories, and building stories so viewers are taken on an excitng ride.

    I agree with you on AJ. I’ve been saying on many posts that I LOVE AJ! Frustrates me that half the town belittles him and they have committed individually as well as colllectively more harm than he’s ever done. Buts the shite outta me!

    Seriously , How could you not like any GH storylines right now? I knew that once Ron C and Frank V refused to be held hostage by PP, it would be on and crackin. I am so happy that the writing team is moving right along. Sonny is the best. He hasn’t acted this well in a few years.. Granted, he is off his meds, but MB is doing an excellent job . However, I agree about AJ being too buff to be constantly bullied. He does have panic attacks and self estem issues as well, so until he can get those things in check , he will continue to be that trainwreck. You have to admit Michael ‘s fast talking trying to stop one Dad from killing another Dad was so compelling. I cried because that young man loves them both. RH is so phenomenal as Franco. I don’t know anyone who could pull this lunacy off like him. I can’t wait to see what he does. I believe that GH will bring back the Super Couple. Franco & Carly,Michael & KiKi ( the name is growing on me ) , Alexis & Julian, Sam &Silas who by the way are so hot , it should be against the law to have that much chemistry with someone other than your spouse. It doesn’t matter who they play. They have that X factor. Of course there are things that give me pause. The mob thing, Sick or dying baby storylines, and I wish we could have had some closure for Johnny Z and Claudia before they killed her off. They both deserved to love each other with out it being weird, and creepy. It makes so much sense now. Their relationship and Claudia ‘s special bond with her son. GH rocks !

    Yes, Y&R stinks in comparison to GH, and I watch both/am a long time fan of both and GH puts Y&R to shame..
    There is something about the ratings of Y&R that is a mystery..

    people, as myself, watch Y&R because we’re loyal fans, but that gives Y&R a number but does not say it is better than GH, it is not..
    seems numbers and quality are 2 different things whit soap ratings..

    Patrick replied

    Hip, Hip, Hooray!

    Yes… Yes! let it be…..

    Days… and GH.

    what do you not understand?

    Serial, at it’s best…..

    I’m watching Y&R, again… tribute to Jeanne Cooper…. in the same breath… I don’t miss Genoa City.

    never liked B&B… that’s for the “FEW” rich and famous. who lives like that…? blah…

    so… give me Salem and Port Charles.. and I’ll find something to like… and endear me… the quality enough to keep up and Tune IN.

    love this stuff.

    The best soap on the air is General Hospital!!! Has been for 50+ years!!! I don’t watch DAYS, never could get into it and B&B got so boring, silly and repetitive that I stopped watching it. Y&R is pretty boring right now as well but I’m trying to hang in there. If I’m home I watch it but if I miss it, it’s no big deal. GH is the only soap that I tape if I’m not going to be home and even when I watch it live, I usually watch it again on SoapNet that night or on the weekend.

    Even with the ups and downs over the years, General Hospital is the soap to watch!!!!!

    GH was on running on all cylinders last week– and when stories are hot the viewers watch. Days is picking up a bit after having slowed down for a while. Y&R is starting to feel the discontent of viewers with JFP and the direction this regime took the show– it has been a year since taking over and the show is declining, not getting better. Why Sony can’t put two and two together and realize their choice for producer is hurting the show is beyond me. The ratings should go up for Katherine’s memorial– but after that and with the new HW– I fear the show’s number might keep going down. B&B rides the wave of Y&R success as their lead in– when Y&R numbers slide so does B&B’s.

    Mary f…had to reply here…i do love your idea that Britt is carrying her own brother! but it would horrify Anna that the daughter of her enemy was carrying her own grandchild and then Dr. O kidnapped him …as for the A.J. thing i was simply pointing out to some that AJ or Ava would be too obvious…it has to mean someone or something else…however i didnt say Connie was trying to write a whole sentence…i feel she was going to write one more word which wouldve revealed killer…i seen this in some old movie or crime show a long time ago, and its why i said it.

    Frank and Ron are back in their groove after the character introductions. All story lines are building and converging. It really is all about the writing & the use of Core vs. New Characters. They have figured out the mix. Y&R losing viewers in the build up to Katherine’s death is a huge red flag. That should be a moment where fans who currently watch and used to watch check in and see this iconic character written out in a way that she is due. That is not happening, which is sad. Congrats #Cartini! Now just one nudge to bring back Stefan Cassadine :)

    Your THE BORED & THE BEAUTIFUL titkle twist made me smile. The series is dull of late. I want the characters to grow up some and the powers that be clean house some as they solidify core families/legacy characters and incorporate a few new ones that make a difference and stay on the canvas.

    GH is a strong soap thanks to the current leadership team. I am so happy it was spared cancellation for that really could have happened.

    I liked Susan Flannery as Stephanie and tried to continue watching up until about a few months ago but it just no longer interest me. GH is my favorite, ive watched Dools since it began in the 60s but its not too interesting at the moment but some episodes are entertaining and as for Y&R i tune in on occasion now and even less since the passing of my favorite Jeanne Cooper…i still like Tracy Bergman who plays Lauren and watch when she and Micheal are on…GH remains the soap i rarely miss.

    The fact that Y&R took a huge hit in the ratings should be a signal to Angelica McDaniel (CBS Daytime Chief) and Steve Kent (Sony Pictures) that fans are quickly tuning out to the dredge and druck that JFP is dishing out that thinks is good drama. PUHLEEEZZZEEEE! #FireJFP @saveyrtoday

    Summer, Nick, Jack story is pitifully bad dull not interesting terrible.. I wish the story would be flushed for the bad crap it is.

    Neil and Rose story is boring and way to drawn out..
    Who actually cares? There is no drama, it stinks of dying..

    Nikki and her stuffed nose crying is over kill

    Sharon and her Zombie act is hard to find a word to describe the stupid of it.

    Lauren and Carmine was almost a comedy as far as suspenseful whatever it failed miserably ..

    Y&R is much like the movie; Plan Nine from Outer Space, noted as the worst movie ever made lol

    such a shame ..

    Yes, GH is smoking hot! All the major stories are hitting the fan!!!!! Today on GH Britt
    admitted to Patrick that her baby isn’t his at all, Maxie with her baby , Spinelli is a dad ,& the guy saving Danny’s life is the baby’s grandfather and I think AJ didn’t kill Connie.. I think the initials in Connie’s blood is Ava Jerome(AJ) . Because Connie figured out that the guy running Crimson is really Julian and Connie over heard his conversation on the phone heard him say the name Julian over the phone with Ava…And Connie was going to tell Sonny the Jerome’s are still alive..But Ava stopped Connie and shot & killed her.

    I originally thought Ava but i think RC is going to put a twist on it and maybe its Alice or even Monica. Also, now i wish Britss baby will really turn out to be Patricks…and Robins! DrO is cleaver enough to pull that shocking twist…Britts carrying Patricks and Robins son!!!

    Patrick replied

    OMG!

    what if… that’s the truth?

    Dr. O’s been holding captive Robin?

    Oh.. Jim… you’re too much… could this be…?

    I’d hold out the red carpet if you’re right…

    this would be big time stuff… for the twist and story of all return stories….

    SUSAN M. replied

    Then why did Connie put the initials AJ in her blood?

    Jules replied

    Jim, you come up with the best theories and ideas. You really do! This one in particular though, about Robin and Patrick, is probably my favourite though :) .

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Susan, i think AJ in her blood is a red herring to fool us viewers…it could mean A.J or Ava Jerome or Connie could also be trying to warn that Sonny that Ava and Julian are part of the Jerome family…she could been spelling out A.J.s mother or even Alice who is fond of A.J. I just think A.J. and Ava would be too predictable…i could be wrong but i dont think RC would write it that simple…it has to be someone other than the two obvious…unless the shocking twist is A.J. really did shoot her!!!

    Reply

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    One more suspect…Heather Webber…shes been known to escape the sanitarium before…Connie couldve been writing A.J. is innocent but died too soon…Heather might not liked it that Connie hurt Franco when she revealed Kiki wasnt his daughter…maybe farfetched but there are endless possibilities and stranger things have happened in PC!

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    O come on Jim, the woman is dying, she only has moments to live, she is desperate to say something and you think she is trying to write out a whole sentence, like AJ’s mother, or AJ is innocent– please. I am starting to think it is not an A and J but she was trying to draw some kind of symbol that is related to the killer— maybe a tattoo he had or a pendent on a necklace– I agree anything is possible, but a dying woman is not going to be writing a whole sentence, just something short and to the point.
    As for Dr. O impregnating her daughter with Robin and Patrick’s child– for what purpose? She hates that family, I can’t see any reason why she would want to give her swore rival Anna another grand child. It would only torment Anna if she knew the kid existed and they had him, otherwise what would be the point— The more creepy option would be — Dr. O when she was younger had some of her eggs fertilized by Faison, and they have been in storage all these years and now Britt is about to give birth to her own brother. Now that would be some twist.

    Well, you can never say never when it comes to Heather!!!!!!!! Interesting thinking jimh!

    Young & The Restless do not know of one of my friends or relatives that watched it are still watching they have shut it off and tell me they are much happier. I saw 10 minutes of the storyline of Carmine & Michael’s fight and I was truly embarrassed for this once great show. I have set my recorder for JC’s memorial but I am not taping it anymore after that. And if that is disloyal so be it had enough when it is junk it is junk. As for GH still have hope usually more good days then bad. Disappointed in the death scene of Connie I mean here is a mobster who can’t grab something to stop the bleeding and call 911. And please get someone on the set to teach MB how to hold a revolver.

    What an expansive imagination you have, jimh!!!! I always enjoy your theories and flights of fancy regarding GH storylines….don’t know if a less evil Dr. O. would be nearly as enchanting or entertaining, but I do hope the “GreatGati” will be around for a long, long time!!!! Speaking of creative notions, I could not help but ROFLMAO at Britt’s assertion that Brad is her “babydaddy!” REALLY? Like we are supposed to believe that the brilliant beauty and her equally gifted mutta decided getting the gaysian lab tech to “donate” to their cause was the solution to all their problems? PLEEEZE! As if someone wouldn’t notice when the child came out half-Chinese with a funky hairdo???? Totally beggars belief!!!! It’s such a ludicrous idea that I am simply not buying it…and how about Patrick’s reaction??? He was meant to be seething with anger, and it was quite obvious he could barely keep a straight face at the big reveal!!!! The whole thing is sooo completely bizarre, and I am still waiting for another twist to happen! Was a really absurd episode yesterday…..between Britt’s “whale of a whopper” (and I don’t mean her figure…but is she not the hugest fake pregnant lady ever?..She looks ready to explode!!!!!) and Sabrina’s pathetic DIY display, the visuals were just TOO much! (Well, that and WDV’s skivvie moment….) Hope the way Sappy’s little home project collapsed is but a foreshadowing of her so-called “relationship” with Drake Jr. Hahaha….As for Epiphany…yeah,WHERE is she? The woman is no shrinking violet in either girth or deed…..would be awfully difficult to hide her!!!! Paging Nurse Johnson!!!!!

    Shay replied

    I’d vote for the latter, although it’s probably the former! Bet Liesl O. could do a rousing rendition of “(See What) the Boys in the Back Room (Will Have)”…haha! That being said, I can definitely envision the mad mutta lurking beneath Windemere in those secret passageways…perhaps Helena provided her a map for quick and easy access!!!!! Wherever she may be, I hope she materializes soon! Britta needs her, and so does GH!!!!! A day in PC without the dark diabolical doctor is like a day without sunshine!!!! P.S. Sorry about the double posting on “Heather.” Thought my connection timed out when I didn’t see my first reply listed…..

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I hope that Dr.O has an identical twin sister who switched places with her, and like Robin is held captive by her evil twin…this way when Anna catches the evil Dr.O and sends her to prison Britts less villainess mom can come to PC and be with Britt full time!!! She can be a little bit of a troublemaker but not too bad a villain…she also sings and gets a parttime job at some of the local clubs, and as a normal Dr. she can get a job at General Hospital and have some run ins with the staff, especially Epiphany…by the way what happened to her???

    Shay replied

    Oh, and speaking of Epiphany, am I the only one who was seriously disappointed that she didn’t perform “It’s Raining Men” at the Nurses’ Ball???? What a showstopper that could have been combined with the male revue they had!!!!

  17. Jared says:

    I will probably record next week’s Y&R. I like the idea of them keeping Katherine in the story. It has the potential to be a beautiful tribute if written well. I really wish they never undid the Katherine/Jill mother/daughter story. It was so important, and it was such a rip-off to re-write history to bring on a son who isn’t even on the canvas any longer and was ill conceived from the start. Anyway, I haven’t been able to stomach this show and what I’ve seen gets a D grade.

    B&B gets a U for unwatchable. Why this is the #1 soap in the world I cannot even comprehend. The characters literally disgust me. Heather Tom, please come home to Y&R where you belong and are very much needed. You’re too talented for this trash. Sorry, B&B fans. Just my opinion. B&B brings out the worst in me. LOL

    GH and DAYS are good soaps, and their show runners seem to understand that there’s not much room for anything less than excellence in today’s broadcasted soap environment.

    On GH, I’m pretty much loving it all, except for the ONE LIFE three. None of these characters has done anything for me, and I’m afraid abc messed this one up, maybe because the change was so quick and so jarring, plus I am not a fan of brain tumor salvation story lines. Connie’s death broke my heart, but it’s going to fuel some major story, and Lisa LoCicero was a revelation, wasn’t she? Awesome job, Lisa!

    I’m going to miss Kristen on DAYS, but I’m happy Shane and Kimberly are returning. I don’t mind a revolving door of familiar faces, as long as the story is good. However, I wan’t more and more Marlena. Deidre Hall is the star of this show, and I’m just not getting enough of her since she returned. Also, I’m enjoying JJ’s shenanigans. Jennifer and Daniel irritate me, so I’m glad someone is making their lives heck! LOL Even the mean H.R. chick at the hospital is growing on my because she says to Jenn what some of us would like to ourselves! What happened to funny, awkward, quirky Jennifer? Love Nicole!

    What a tremendous week for GH! They added another 75,000 viewers, they jumped over Y&R to move into first place in women 18-34, and they jumped over B&B for 2nd place in women 18-49 for the week and for the year to date. The show has been fantastic lately, and if you’re not watching, you’re really missing out.

    GH added viewers because the acting is suburb / intense, awesome..
    Also, the stories are mysterious, spellbinding, thrilling, and have a lot drama and heart..
    GH is and always has been the leader in high drama ..
    It offers suspense and keeps me aware and awake and at times on the edge of my seat.. The couples are not boring nor overwhelming with problems..

    GH’s cast are the best of the best actors.. Excellent acting..
    GH has the best dramas, suspense full of twists turns and surprises Writers ..
    GH also uses past history and brings in past vets when possible..

    I wish Franco would leave the show forever. He was first supposed to be Kiki’s father, which would have entrenched him with the Q’s-being the father of another heir. It also looked like he would be able to save Danny which would have had the potential for some good stories but both of these things are over with. I see absolutely no purpose for this awful character. Cannot stand Roger H. playing him. GO AWAY. And WHY on earth is Ava still living in the Q mansion? Monica & Tracy would have kicked her to the curb the minute they would out Kiki is not a Q! Wake up writers!

    Shay replied

    Excellent point about Ava still being holed up at “ChezQ!” What the???? Now that she has betrayed AJ by voting for Tracy, Monica (by way of Alice…) should toss her out on her bodacious behind, but I guess the doc is still out of town attending that medical conference or whatever? Hopefully this will happen soon, although I suppose Mama Quartermaine may be a bit more preoccupied by the fact that her son is currently being held for murder….Also, it’s about time Kiki and Morgan hit the road, as well. Their little summer love nest should prove to be a bit chilly with the approaching fall and winter months….but where to go, where to go???? Would be hilarious to see them bunking at Carly’s!!! On second thought, she would probably just send them to the Metro Court!

    I am also not loving the 3 from OLTL

    are horrible together !! But I am thank ful
    That they have finally realized GH fans
    Do not want him shoved down our throats
    Every show !! Then there Silas the weirdo
    Sorry but didn’t care for Mcpain and Silas is
    Even worse but neither are a good fit
    For Sam they need Jason or at Least a
    Jason recast !!! And in all honestly the
    Actor playing AJ would have been a great
    Jason !! Instead of having to watch more
    Drunken AJ !! But I have to say AJ and Liz
    Deserve one another they are both boring
    Nic and Britt have possibilities or even Nic
    And Sabrina !! Loving Maxie and spinneli
    Now give them thier baby already !!
    Lulu has been horrible ever since the whole
    Surrogate thing started lets end it already
    I think Britts child is hers and frankly Patrick
    Doesn’t deserve a son !! Make the Dad
    Some one good !! And give Britt a actual
    Good story line the actress is awesome
    Loving Luke and Tracy get them back
    Together !!! Loving Patrick and Sabrina
    And it would be awesome for her to be
    Pregant with Patrick child when Robin
    Returns that would be high drama oh
    Yea !!most likely Robin will not have had
    Her meds and will probably be dying
    Love Felix now he needs a partner !!
    Love Rafe & Molly Kevin & Lucy
    So sorry to lose Connie that should not
    Of happened just so they could try boring
    Olivia with sonny !! Sonny & Connie was
    Way more intresting !! But carly & Sonny
    will always be my favorite !!Now get
    Robert Ethan Johnny back on the show !!
    Johnny & Carly should never been ruined
    By Connie they were awesome!!
    Star and Michael are way better than
    Morgan and Kiki !!! It has gotten better
    But the writters need to get back to the
    GH actors getting thier fair share of airtime
    And less Fako is more than enough lol

    I also don’t like sick children storues but at least Ron and his team let the children live. Guza & co. loved killing children and making all of the female characters sick and stupid. They all had to deal with many illnesses and also lost all their strength and common sense. So I will take Ron’s stories anytime over Guza’s. Sean has finally had a chance to act. Kirsten has been off the charts anazing..just wish Kelly Sullivan had been kept on the xanvas!

    I love Franco as do numerous others, don’t speak for us..
    His character is just starting to develop and RH will make his Franco awesome, RH has the character midis touch..

    ME as Silas is great! He is so much better than boring do nothing McBain
    His character is developing and I like the new life ME has. I can’t wait for ME/Silas to have a story..

    KA/Starr has grown as an actress a Kiki and she doing a great job, I like her better than Starr..

    The 3 have yet to have a story of their own..
    And I am looking forward to much more Franco, I love watching the character develop into the power Q he will become..

    I like change, it is necessary to grow.. GH has 3 great talents and it gets no better than RH, ME, in any soap as anyone..

    GH has a few old-times who are near awful, OIliva is one :)

    Totally agree about RoHo and ME….I really do not think they deserve the bad rap they have taken! I am enjoying the journey of exploring their new/revised characters, even though I completely despised (James) Franco’s vision of his namesake….the 2.0version is much more complex and human in comparison! Still not into Kiki, though…there are still too many annoying and unattractive aspects to her role at this point. I am hoping that there will be some changes and refinements to KA’s portrayal to make her more acceptable and popular. As for some of the oldies, you are correct….I have previously mentioned those I consider to be deadweight that I would like to see sent away, so I won’t expound again, but a good housecleaning of PC is definitely in order.

    General Hospital and Days of Our Lives are the best shows in daytime with General Hospital in the lead. I agree with one of the comments, Sonny has too much power. When Sonny had the gun on A.J., Dante should have pulled out his gun on Sonny and told him to put down his weapon or else. Instead, Sonny was allowed to threaten A.J with Michael begging Sonny not to shoot. Also, as the same commenter stated, A.J. is a differently built guy who should be able to take on Sonny, physically. I don’t understand why the writers don’t allow anyone to challenge Sonny. In life, Sonny would be challenged by anyone who’s a real; gun or no gun. Writers allowing Sonny to be more powerful than the Qs and getting away with taking a man’s son are the reasons I left GH before. Sonny wouldn’t be able to pull his stunts with Victor Newman.

    My least favorite show right is Young and the Restless because the writing had become poor. However, I see where the Head writer has resigned. Good!

    I love complex grey characters and couples…. hence why I’m watching and invested in 1st: EJ and Sami on Days of our Lives and 2nd: Adam/Chelsea on Young and the Restless.
    Been turned off the Bold and the Beautiful after Brooke slept with her sisters husband. Regardless of circumstances etc etc, it was a new low, low for Brooke and I don’t think the writers should have ever gone there!

    There hasn’t been an actual Franco story, an the past month there has been little of Franco..
    Sonny has been near backburnnered for past couple of months..
    I am waiting for a Franco story to actually happen and to see Sonny back in action..

    Franco, yes, Sonny, no!!!! The snail’s pace of the FrancQ storyline has been almost TOO obvious, probably due to RoHo’s outside work commitments, but he really does need to get back to frontburner status on the show…I miss his energy, comical dialogue and off-the-wall antics! At the very least, he owes Ava some huge payback for her lies regarding Kiki!!!! As for Sonny, he and his “Bensonhurst Babe, No. 2″ can stay in hiding as far as I’m concerned. His recycled plots (another love bites the dust, family problems, mob wars, Carly drama…) and his sullen/explosive reactions to them are so boring and predictable. Unless they come up with something new and creative for him this time around, then let him just go to his dark place and remain sulking there for awhile…..

    I’m REALLY disappointed in DAYS lately. They need to change Head Writers also like Y&R. DAYS needs to go back to the 80′& 90′s where they had more romance & humor and less negativity. Alice & Tom Horton would roll over in their graves with what is going on now. The BIGGEST mistake The Powers That Be are making NOW is keeping the fabulous Drake Hogestyn out of Salem!! What a waste of his talents! With out Drake on I don’t mind missing the show either.

    As far as Y&R is concerned the story line I hate more than anything now is Summer’s paternity. I think it’s awful to Summer,Nick & Jack. Sharon needs to be in a hospital for that trick!! Y&R is still better than DAYS right now though. It will be sad to watch Mrs. C’s funeral this week. But I will be happy to see the vets come back for her funeral.

    I don’t watch General Hospital or Bold & Beautiful.

    The reason for ratings getting better for GH is bc its the best soap on air now! Its getting more interesting and keeping us on the edge of our seats with connie being killed and luke being sick. maxies baby drama and just everything going on right now ! its just good tv! Ive always loved general hospital It is my favorite. young and the restless to me is boring!
