Good! Y&R is out and it deserves to be out.
How it stays #1 is a mystery..
I believe the way it has ratings counted is a scam
perhaps it pulls in via whatever means Puerto Rico etc.
Some dark tech going on there, yup
Since the first soaps, Y&R has been #1
what are the odds of that-?
Many soaps were much better during the past 5 decades
to not have one of them be #1 just once.Just once.

The Nielsen ratings aren’t a reflection of a programs quality. We know that even though it’s been number one, it is far from being the best soap, probably ever. It’s just a habit of many people leaving the tv on during that time period on that channel, doesn’t mean they are paying attention to the show.

No Y&R not surprised – the writers are awful, feel for the cast, they not being used very well. It’s awful that BB did NOT submit -their writers are awesome, great storylines with an awesome cast. They rock!

It’s already sad that there are only four soaps left & then I see only two nominees. If GH doesn’t win this award there is no hope left for quality writing & these awards like others are pointless.

General Hospital for sure should win them all. Days used to be good a few years back then it would have been a toss up for me but not now.

Same old names since the 1990’s. They just keep recycling the same old failed soap writers among the final four soaps. And you wonder why the audience only sees back from the dead stories and poor ratings!!! Is it really so difficult for the heads of daytime to demand new writing blood on these shows? Can someone at least pass a Rooney rule for daytime soaps where at least each writing team has one member under 30 and a person of color?

The problem is that many fans of daytime, like my mother, started watching GH, Days, Y&R and B&B years ago. These people want to the writers to mainly focus on the “legacy characters” ie Laura, Monica, Anna, Robert etc on GH, John, Kayla, Patch, Marlena, Maggie, Julie, Jennifer, Jack etc on Days and who ever the legacy characters are on the other two shows. My mother and others believe that the younger generation should be there to enchance the legacy characters storylines. And these people don’t believe that writers under 30 have the ability and experience to write the necessary… Read more »

I would buy that if the legacy characters actually had real lives and weren’t generally used as props for the younger group. Look at John and Marlena or Victor Newman, these vibrant characters are pretty much reduced to worrying about their children and meddling in there lives. People over 50 do have something more to offer than advice and for Pete’s sake let’s keep people out of the hospital.
