I am surprised GH lost viewers, as I have been enjoying the show and the whole two Jason story. Sorry, but the whole Bill and Steffy story makes me nauseous. Sleeping with your father-in-law, yuck. The problem with this show is you can’t root for any couple because they only stay together for such a short time before moving on to someone else. The only good thing for me on this show is that Ingo will soon be on.

Well, sort of good news…but nothing to brag about IMO if one is paying attention to the big picture. B&B ratings have been falling for some time, and yes, they finally increased for the week in total viewers but they were really low the previous weeks. I’d say this week was a mixed bag for B&B, up over last week(first number listed) but still behind compared to last year (second number.) B&B remains THIRD place behind GH in the all-important demos of Women 18-49. Yeah…I am a nerd that has been following the ratings. lol!

nothing wrong – at all – WITH an analytical perspective

whatever it takes .. fans KNOW the lowdown any way… just helps that much more for fan intrigue

TIME passes by – SO – fast.. that I can’t keep up with the ups and downs of the ratings… I just know.. that my DAYS is always 4th… and is keeping pace plus

all I can hope for. 14,000 EYES – do something

i’m interested in how GH will fare once Steve Burton and Billy Miller.. settle in.

GH and DAYS for the WIN

I’m rooting for DAYS OF OUR LIVES! It’s fun, romantic and a can’t miss show for me, now that head writer Ron Carlivati has taken over the reins.

Someone has to be bored or forgot to turn their TV off if you are watching Bold . Brad Bell completely let the air out of the tires concerning the return of Sheila and what JMW at a young age has done to her face has made this show unwatchable and also I respect KKL but thirty years later we are still trading husbands every three months.

I turned B&B back on because of Bill & Steffy and the explosion drama. They finally brought back their most chemistry filled pairing. Controversial but that’s why most people watch soaps in the first place. I’m looking forward to a huge blowout when the truth comes out. Now we have Ingo on too. B&B has the talent, now they just need to keep the meaty stories coming.

I so agree with you, vinman. It may only be 30 minutes but it FEELS so much longer. The same few characters playing musical beds year after year. Yawn..

BB it’s getting good. I finally started watching again after about six years lately. Finally the riders were smart enough to capitalize on the explosive chemistry between DD and JMW as Bill and Steffy. Hoping that the explosion will be the end of wasting Steffy on Liam. The triangle with Hope was never believable. But the love story between Bill and Steffy brought passion to the screen airing the too hot shown only in snippets love scene. Will continue to watch as long as they stand a chance. If the powers that be decided to not continue many viewers want… Read more »

I had said a long time ago that Liam was to whimpy for Steffie. Since the days of Steffie and Hope fighting over him I could never figure out what the big attraction was. She needs a real man and not a whining little puppy dog. Like you, I only hope this is the beginning for Steffie and Bill. I guess Brooke was only a brief “love of his life”. What I can’t wait for is the truth hitting the fan. Let the various cat fights begin. I am sure Brooke will try and get her digs at Steffie. Maybe,… Read more »

PS If Steffie and Bill decide to marry, Bill will be Ridge’s son-in-law. And if Brooke and Ridge marry for the millionth time, Brooke will be Bill’s stepmother-in-law. I just thought I would give you something to think about. Only on the soaps. Take care.

I mainly watch Days and GH…will watch GH more when Britt returns…Days is best improved show…worried that GH will become the Jason/Carly/Sonny hour -some episodes of GH are better than others…i like Cassandra? or whatever her name is-hoping for a battle of the witches-her against Nina(sorry but i really was never won over by her) and hope Cassandra wins the battle…

Shay

@Jimh….I like your idea for a battle royale between Cassandra and Nina….and I am rooting for the same side as you!!!….Nina really has to go….she’s just never found her footing in Port Charles!

Jimh
Guest

Cassandra can stay-she is winning me over…she has this sneakiness about her i am enjoying-seems something big she is hiding and hoping for a good payoff-the calm before the storm kind of sneakiness before the big reveal…Michelle Stafford is a fine actress but her Nina irritates me like nails on a chalkboard…the only thing i like about her is scenes with the mysterious Cassandra!!!

Of the three I watch (B&B, Y&R, Days), B&B is my least favorite right now because I don’t like the Steffy/Bill hookup.

I really hope Days’ ratings will go up because the show is so good. The one I want to watch first.

I am tired of B&B’s carousel of relationships. No romance. No genuine love. Only actions that in any other world would be unforgivable. I enjoy a good redemption story yet it seems whenever we get close to a new stage for a character, something just so stupid happens. Steffy is the new Brooke, dancing with father and his two sons. But is there any endgame to really root for? No. I support and try to watch all four legacy soaps because I do not want the genre to die. But B&B lately is making it difficult. I was hoping Brooke… Read more »

I love the Bold & Beautiful bringing back a new Sally the actress that plays her is awesome!!! Steffy & Bill are great together cause their both evil, selfish, & power hungry. Bring Hope back for Liam she is his true love Steffy just got in the way and messed him up for a bit but his heart is with Hope she’s good like him.

Hey, T, Since there’s no site for Y&R, I agree with you. Marla is amazing and funny…I get a kick out of Dina, illness or not ….she will always remain one of the greats. Also, remember when I said to you ( pre Sharon) there was too much sexual tension between Abby and Scott? They just ‘hated’ each other at first glance. That, alone, spoke volumes. Sharon is just a sidetrack, which is soooo low. You were right, you saw something in him I did not. He’s a snake. As I said, when I first thought Abby would be pregnant… Read more »

While YR is my hands down favorite, I’m enjoying Bold more than GH though that may change when Tamara Braun returns to GH.

I do have to say Bold’s stories and couples change at a break neck speed, it’s gotten ridiculous. The return of Shelia Carter has been a total bust for me, won’t be upset when she leaves.

Be careful what you wish for, Anne….Henry will, indubitably, take a wiff of Tamara’s skirts, LOL.

Okay, this cracked me up. I love this and take it you are a big Tudor fan too!

Yep YR is hands down tops for me. No everything is not perfect but the improvements have been huge and very fast. Some people want everything to happen immediately instead of letting stories play out.

Oopsies…whiff.
You are the only fan, Anne, I have seen on these sites who favors Y&R above all others.
I love my Y&R…will always be loyal to it for the long-haul.

Oh, yeah, Anne!!!! I am a Tutor fan…..I am a British History fan—-a History buff, in general. But, British and American History fascinate me the most.
Glad I made you laugh, a bit….we all need a dose of it, now and again.
Who would not be a fan of Henry VIII? I consider him sort of a caricature; no disrespect to the Tudors, LOL.
My maternal grandmother’s maiden name is Stuart (Stiubhart)…. I should look into that. LOL.
If my Y&R is taken away, Anne….I shall mutiny….

I have been defending Y&R but alas, think some of the critics might be right after all. I am bored with Abby and suddenly she is in a major front burner story line. She looks perpetually confused with her mouth always hanging open and the brows furrowed into the shape of the number 11. Abby sleeps with Scott with nary a twinge of guilt of having slept with another woman’s man. She slept with her niece’s husband and later she slept with her sister’s live in boyfriend. I cannot stand Abby the mouth breather cause she lacks a moral compass… Read more »

Mal Young is now the head writer and I noticed the changed immediately- gone are thoughtful and realistic conversation between characters and in came silly mock conflicts– in what universe would anyone who isn’t a first responder be allowed inside a building about to collapse? But Jack was so he can have a heart to heart with Billy. Now every conversation is a argument — characters are becoming stereo types again. The Alzheimer story line could have been great, but it is already riddled with cliches—and since the dialogue is written so badly, I find even with best actors on… Read more »

Hi Mary SF, I so totally agree…We all have our opinions but IMO we will never see the classic glory days of Y&R again since Bill Bell pass…I really think we would of had it with Sally Sussman and Kay Alden but I think that CBS/Sony intervene and they decided to let Sally and Kay go and they were the reason that I started watching Y&R again and now with Y&R falling backwards again it’s just a matter of time before I quit watching and I don’t think that Mal Young cares for he’s not listening and turning it into… Read more »

Sooner or later they will soap opera age Little Will (Katie’s son that is never on anymore) into a teenager and he will be dreaming about Steffy too!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
