Well, I guess the CBS bloc-voting worked. I guess tomorrow night will be more of the same. Should I even bother tuning in?

I believe there is much more going on behind closed doors when it comes to the these awards..
It would be actual if people voted and the awards were not decided by payed off panels / media political hand shaking..
I think we all know there is hidden agendas behind all this hoopala, if not, then why have the awards if it did not benefit networks..
Also known as ; greasing of the wheel ..

LMAO .. they actually gave awards for;

SCENIC DESIGN , CASTING , COSTUME DESIGN , HAIRSTYLING , LIGHTING DIRECTION , SOUND MIXING , TECHNICAL DIRECTION .

Y&R and BB took them all..
Two words.. biased/rigid and ridiculous..

CASTING- should have been GH –
the casting was outstanding ..
SCENIC DESIGN – should have gone to GH..
Its action dock scenes, police cars, boats , on the waterfront etc also the accident road and woods was outstanding..

Theses awards are all for putting on a show and not much more..
For many years the awards have terrible..

Well I see no reason to watch the show tomorrow. I hate that some networks feel the need to fix the outcome….really unfair to the fans

Days shouldve got it for scenic design for its wonderful use of a couch that doesnt get dirty from bird poop in the town square, and for the clever way it recycles one set that is used for the police set, Jennifers hospital office and also as Bradys examining room after he was attacked in the park! lol

Congrats to the winners.

Glad to see Y and R win since most of those awards are for what happened before JFP got her hands on the show.

Watching the show right now, one of the worst things ever to air on TV, an embarrassment to Daytime.

Agreed ..it was so obvious that CBS rigged the show. It was a joke! GH and Days got robbed. I guess they think we are stupid?? Because we do watch the shows, we know enough to tell the difference.

The Bay’s creator. Gregori J Martin expressed his excitement on the casting news sharing: “Sean and Gilles are absolute pros! Such a true honor to work with both gentlemen and have them a part of The Bay family!”

The ratings are out for the week of September 2nd through the 6th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives that was the only daytime drama series to gain in total viewers and households.

DAYS topped General Hospital for the week moving into third place adding +82,000 total viewers, while GH hit a new low losing – 143,000 viewers, as well, the CBS Daytime series of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful also lost total viewers … -189,000 and -120,000 for the ratings period.

In addition, DAYS was up +.04 in households week-to-week.   However. the show year-to-year that has continued in recent weeks to lose viewers is The Young and the Restless who from this time last year lost -453,000 viewers.

In the key demos: Y&R remained at #1 in 18-49, 18-34 and 25-54 in total viewers, but in the ratings share it tied with B&B in the 18-34 category.  Over the past few weeks, B&B has also been in the top demo slots trading off with Y&R.

With the fall season upon us and summer coming to a close, perhaps many soap viewers will be checking back in to see what is happening in the towns of Genoa City, Port Charles, Los Angeles, and Salem.
