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

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?

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… Read more »
