This is why I hate award season; the rightful nominees are snubbed.

In a way, I’m not surprised about THIS IS US, as I don’t feel this season is on par with previous seasons. Happy about Connie Britton, Regina King, Richard Madden, and Darren Criss. On the snubbed (but no surprise) list are Liza Weil and Jack Falahee, both terrific on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. I do feel Chrissy Metz from THIS IS US deserved a nomination despite the show being overlooked. Quite an accomplishment for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga also.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace was absolutely great!

American Crime Story was absolutely great!

The Americans was absolutely great!

Of the 3 I can’t choose but one will be the winner.

As for ‘This Is Us’ I love it but it’s not in the above level.
And, it has been dropping in the ratings 🙁

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.
