Isn’t that the week that GH gave us a week full of reruns? They deserve lower ratings for that week. All that did was teach us how to get along without them. “Boo!” to whomever made that stupid decision.

Nope the week after is when their was 2/3 days of reruns. I say 2/3 cause they skipped the actual day he died & went straight to his funeral on Monday. I found it highly stupid to air a funeral but not the ep where he died. Wtf is the point then

There’s a reason why you will never see a classic rerun of GH aired on TV. It’s also the same reason SoapNet was pulled off the air, and why any full classic episodes which pop up on YouTube are yanked immediately.

It’s not even about the quality of the material in the pre-2012 shows, because we all know that already.

It’s because those shows were LONGER. First thing I noticed in February 2012, even before observing how much of the stench of OLTL had polluted the canvas was how much SHORTER the actual shows suddenly were. The actual running time of a typical GH episode is less than 36 minutes now. When you could still find classic episodes on line they were between 40 – 42 minutes.

If they tried to air one of those episodes now, they would either have to re-edit them to fit the current air time schedule, or else air them as they originally did. And then have everybody immediately notice how much more actual episode there was.

My sympathies to those who still manage to watch this show live during the daytime. I couldn’t do it without a way to lose the commercials. 24 minutes per hour is just a bit much.

General Hospital really needs to trim its bloated cast so that characters and story lines are not dropped for weeks at a time. The stories need to unfold in a more direct manner to engage and maintain viewer interest. They should also go back to longer scenes with more emphasis on dialogue. Long live GH!

Kevin C

Mister Media, I been thinking of what you mentioned about longer scenes with more emphasis on dialogue…I do not like at all when they go from scene to scene so quickly and don’t have time to really get into the story and what the characters are discussing. I also agree on the bloated cast…

The GH ratings don’t surprise me. I know I have harped on this before, but name one “happy,” exciting, non-Carly/Sonny/Morgan story line it has had for ages. So even I don’t watch attentively anymore. And it’s still continuing. With B&B, while it’s still a constant recycling of it’s major characters love lives, at least there was some comic relief at Liam and Hope’s wedding when the moms had the cake fight.

rebecca1

Yea but Steffy’s strange sister-wife, we’re all one family, kumbaya robotic trance-like speech was stranger than almost any science fiction I’ve ever watched! If I had to look at those glazed eyes as she repeated the same mantra day after day I think I would have had to buy a new TV; I was one step from throwing the one I have through the window.

rose

Hi Rebecca1…I know what you mean about Steffy. I never liked the character. And they all say the same thing day after day. You can almost repeat it with them. Still I did like the cake fight. But GH is just one gloomy story after another. And now Oscar, after one baby dying ,another baby switching, Mike, more Morgan, Nathan.

ehh.. doc Griffin will save Oscar.

@su…Speaking of miracles, maybe Griffin will bank upon his presently dormant priestly skills and pray away the tumor! Could get him nominated for sainthood…

Actually, I kinda like Steffy, Rose. What I meant was she just went all ghandi-esque when she had the baby. I honestly don’t know if it was bad acting or good acting but I couldn’t bear to hear her anymore. I agree, the dialogue is beyond redundant; seems those writers have quite an easy time. Small cast, recycled stories and same dialogue for two weeks. And, yet, go figure, I STILL like the show! lol

I think the fighting spirit Steffy is coming back; or hopefully at least some semblance of a normal human being.

I don’t like Ingo in the role of Thorne. Just not into him on this show. Maybe that’ll change but I preferred him as Jax.

Bill Spencer gets the funniest lines in my opinion. He just comes out with these sarcastic jabs, whether it’s calling someone a name or making an analogy; he just cracks me up!

As far as Oscar goes I will absolutely HATE it if they really have him die. Just horrible. They may THINK they’re recreating some Robin/Stone tearjerker but that at least was about the AIDS epidemic and was socially relevant. This would just be killing off one of the most decent characters on the show who happens to also be a Quartermaine; something sorely needed.

SONY DO SOMETHING NOW!! y&R is about to dip below 4 million which i dont think it ever has before. B&B is only 600000 away from it when it has always been a million or more.

AGAIN Y&R, family fights are not what we want to watch. No matter what Nick will forgive Victor the next time he gets a paper cut!

The feud should be Jack vs Victor and all the cast collateral damage. jack should own Dark Horse and Nick work for him. This is such garbage it makes me laugh. nick hasnt had a real job in 5 years!!

Jack is an ABBOTT. Enough said. jill should return with the proof (why cause i want jill in town) and then Jack kicks Billy out of his chair and tells Ashley, CFO OR NO.

In the last year GH has rewritten everything we saw & heard to fit their agenda which is clearly inciting fan wars. They drop stories constantly & write on a daily basis instead of with continuity. It’s always dark and tragic with no romance or anything happy. They have Drew & Sam whose portrayers have, in F.Valentini’s own words “intense chemistry” yet rarely even let them share a scene but rather force Sam & Jason with two actors who look like they can’t stand each other; once again for the sake of fan wars instead of good writing. They display blatant favoritism by propping & featuring the same characters not only almost daily but with excessive screen time seemingly ignoring the rest of the cast. It’s not uncommon to fast forward thru most of an episode or not watch at all. As a 40+ year fan I feel in the past year GH is no longer interested in giving the viewers the best they have to offer but rather what best suits their agenda.

Not one person I know watches daytime TV, they work.
AND-
they do not record it, nobody records any loner lol

I put like zero confidence in these rating numbers.. watching/recording daytime is like an antique ..

Except, these are numbers that count to the networks, not viewers who watch online. They don’t track that. It doesn’t make them any money. It’s live viewership or timeshifted viewership which they can track via a DVR on a legit service. This is how TV show survive.

With all the technology available, why they dont include DVR numbers is beyond me! I think Y&R’s ratings would be far less!

Y&R is a complete mess! #1 Charlie, Devon and Nate are useless characters and the rest I will keep quiet about! #2 No one cares about Tessa or Crystal! They are a waste of time and the show is wasting Mariah! #3 The lady who plays Phyllis has the sex appeal of a chard of glass! [I actually have some compassion towards Summer!] #4 “Whose Jacks Daddy?” A complete fail! #5 Can we get a Billy Abbott that can compare to Billy Miller?

GH: I actually like GH half of the week. Even though Mike is lumped into the mob crap, I love the actor and he is beating out Dina over at Y&R! Happy to see Kristina back and Drew with Kim or Margo, its a yes! Wouldnt it be great if Kristina and Julian slept together. Alexis and Sonny would fight over a machete to kill Jules first! BUT, GH is losing viewers. Why? #1 The are wasting Steve Burton! He should have been Jason Q when he returned and not Sonny and Carly’s pet dog! #2 Brick? Why they hell do they waste air time on some ESPN dude? Plus, he hits on Carly right in front of Sonny. Its weird! #3 Valentin has been a bust from day ONE! He was suppose to be the worst Cassadinne! He is a kitten! Everything attached to him is wrong! Peter, Nina, Madeline and Cassandra, who the BEEP cares! #4 They really have ruined the character of Anna! People will say, oh Robert is nice to have around but you need younger characters. Well, yes but Robert is still Robert and he can act! Finola can act but she is in a horrible story and Finn is a major Bruce Willis want to be! #5 They never knew what to do with Griffin. If he is Duke’s son, bring Duke back! If that is not going to happen, make Griff’s dad another dude and let him and Anna be a couple!

How do you get GH out of the gutter? Dismiss Frank, trim the fat and hire full time characters we love.

Dismiss: Amy, Michael, Nina, Peter, Cassandra, Finn, Brick, Jordan, Stella and Oscar.
Full time: Robert, Scotty, Duke, Nicholas, Kevin, Laura, Kim, Margo and Heather. *If any on this list are contract players, use them more frequently!

KristiNa having Julian’s baby-lol….Jason is in an accident because of Sonny and becomes Jason Q-he saves Oliver’s life and decides to become a doctor…Drew will be torn between Kim and Margauex but Kim finds herself attracted to Dr. Jason Morgan who is planning to remarry Sam…Valentin becomes top villain and wants revenge after attempts on Nina’s life by local serial killer Ryan who kills off Amy. Peter and Stella and Finn..John McBain returns to help investigate the killings…when Jordan is murdered Mac becomes the new commissioner…Scott and Laura grow close when Laura is nearly murdered…Laura discovers the truth about Ryan and shoots him but by mistake shoots Kevin who escaped the mental hospital…Kevin lays in a coma at the hospital and Valentin thinking its Ryan turns off Kevin’s life support but Kevin lives!!!

As longtime followers of this site know, the SF in my name stands for Soap Fan. I have loved the genre since I was a little girl, watching the Edge of Night with my mother. When soaps were at their height of popularity I was juggling 5 or more at a time. Before the internet I waited with baited breath for the next issue of Soap Opera Digest, in hopes of getting a scoop on what might be next. I was truly a soap fan.

I was convinced I would love my soaps either until I died, or the genre died. I endured a lot of lame story lines over 50+years, seen some really bad moves made in casting, but never wanted to give up on any show I watched– because there was always something that made it worth investing my time in.

So it was with a heavy heart that I stopped watching 3 out of the 4 soaps, and only barely watch Y&R. Sadly many viewers today have never seen the soaps when writers and producers who loved the genre did amazing work. Networks never gave daytime the money they gave prime time, but some daytime dramas we as equally as good if not better.

I don’t know what they (networks, producers, and production companies) think is going on air today, but whatever it is not real soap opera/daytime drama– I don’t know what this garbage is, all I know I can’t bare to watch it anymore. The dialogue on every soap is horrible– the story lines are not remotely entertaining- the action is pathetic, the characters have no depth, no soul, but most of all the romance is completely dead. What passes for a love story these days, makes me weep for this generation who have no idea what love should be about.

At this point in time, I don’t think anything can be done to fix it. It doesn’t seem to matter who the writer is or who the producer is– because either networks have micromanaged them so completely they are no longer allowed to write the way the genre is meant to be written, or the target audience has changed so much they don’t know what real daytime drama is– like many today have no idea what a real chicken is suppose to taste like because they haven’t never had one. So for all of you, who are watching and loving it, great– but for me, I cannot take this processed, flavorless junk and call it “chicken” anymore.

I don’t know how long I will be able stomach Y&R–and I never thought this day will come, but if I come on this site ever again, I will change my name to Mary SFIM– Soap Fan in Mourning.

Iakovos

Oh, Mary SF…. this soap fan hears you and sadly has to agree with much of your assessment. Where is the romance? Where is the suspense? Serial storytelling is an art and, after reading bios on the amazing Mr. Bill Bell, and memoirs penned by Miss Kim Zimmer, Miss Susan Lucci and the late Miss Jeanne Cooper, I have to wonder what happened. Daytime was a fun day part with quiz shows, a few talk shows, the occasional off-network rerun, and our daytime dramas. I know the nature of the business is different with advances in technology but the art remains the same. I still believe ion Y&R and DAYS but the endless and soulless coupling on B&B and the dearth of any joy on GH have me turning off those shows.

Kevin C

Mary SF, so very well said and written…I agree with you 100% and I have been watching since the middle 70’s…It is such a disgrace what these shows have come to…I am still watching 3 but barely holding on and I don’t know how much longer I can do so…I keep on hanging on thinking and hoping things will change but like I mentioned in a previous post regarding CBS/SONY regarding Y&R, they are not listening to us…

Mary SFIM
Mary SFIM

And the sad thing is that the popularity of a prime time show like “This is Us” proves there is a strong market for well written, character based dramas— those stories never lose their appeal, yet for some reason, someone like Mal Young just has to say he has some “story ideas” and two writers who trying to bring that back to daytime barely had time to turn the ship around, when Mal Young took over the ship and set it straight back on course toward the iceberg of mediocrity . The characters are so badly written and scripted that I now dislike all of them except Mariah and Dina– Most days I have to turn off the sound—but those in charge don’t care about quality, just numbers, so as long as Y&R viewers stay about the same, they are content to let things stand—it is only loyalty to what the show was that keeps me tune it–because I have been watching this one the longest

Shay
Shay

That was very eloquently——and accurately—-put, Mary SFIM! During the heyday of soaps, I watched/recorded multiple afternoon dramas, on top of all the great primetime soapy offerings! It was quite an effort to keep up with the viewing even with the help of three VCRs! However, like you, I can now no longer stomach most of what ails daytime, particularly GH, which is the only show I’ve followed for quite some time….it’s totally insufferable seeing those modern-day ignominious creatures and nonsensical storylines emanating from Port Charles, especially considering its once-glorious past which held us in such thrall! Most days, I simply skip through every character, as they hold no interest whatsoever…occasionally, some legacy player will capture my attention, but that is an increasing rarity. Of course, I am elated that Genie Francis will be returning, so I shall give Laura the attention and respect she deserves, along with Ryan…it would be an utter delight if these two vets were actually given a storyline commensurate with their abilities and fascinating character histories, but I’m really not optimistic that such will be the case. Still, hope always springs eternal…even if it has been worn mighty thin by the endless parade of insipid newbies and unwelcome intersoapers who have overpopulated Port Charles in the last five years or so.

rose

Mary SF…I’ve been thinking a lot about your comment, so I wanted to add my own thoughts for those of us who are bemoaning what’s been happening to our soaps. And it’s not just soaps. Like chicken, try to find a real good tasting tomato in the stores, even what they call field grown. Personal service. Or phone/internet/tv service.

But you can’t ignore things have changed especially since more women are working daytime than before, the internet/social media have changed everything with no end in sight, kids grow up spending more time with tech than outdoors or a book, and under more stress and less sense of safety than most of us ever worried about. Very sad for many of us who liked much of things as they were before. But you can’t help but wonder how did we let all of this get away from us. But I suspect generations in the past might have said the same thing as things “progressed.”

Getting back to our soaps. Many of us were content with three major tv networks plus some local and PBS. A lot of it must have been good because look at how many reboots are being done of some of our favorite shows. And while I like some of the other programming we can now pay to get on umpteenth million channels and gadgets, I sometimes think we have way too much choice which has diluted the writing pool for network, soaps, other sitcoms and series. Way too much violence and cheapo talk shows.

As for real romance and adventure, I find this a great opportunity still for soaps since romance books were reported as the largest selling genre in books. This bears out in the observations I have seen in the bookstore I work in where you have mainly women of all ages buying them. And not exclusively the kind of romance that have characters in bed in two seconds. Or buff guys going around with their shirts off to arouse the females/males. The only channels I see capitalizing on this are the Women and Hallmark channels. You can even find Nathan/Ryan Peavy (sp?) here on occasion. One excuse has been given that soaps are too expensive But can’t there be ways to tweak this, as some have suggested on MF…1/2 hr shows instead of 1 hr. Big Bang Theory, for instance is only 1/2 hr. Think if you took a lot of Carly/Sonny airtime off, and decreased the cast like B&B, these could really help. And also write better, more relevant stories for the young adult “preferred” audience, as well as less depressing stories for what seems the “less preferred,” loyal viewers. Spice it up a little…we can all use it in this day and age.

While Y&R appears to be bleeding viewers the most right now, it looks like the other soaps have made superficial gains that they have trouble turning into meaningful increases in viewership that they can maintain over time. I can’t say I’m surprised based on the product being presented to viewers. My advice to all of the shows would be to hire fresh writing talent and take more chances with the writing while still respecting the past.

As far as advice for specific shows go: Y&R should probably get rid of Mal Young at this point. His turn as headwriter was promising at first, but he has run out of steam. I think Y&R needs to find a writing team that combines the strengths of Chuck Pratt and Sally Sussman (but not necessarily those two people) who can craft exciting drama while also honoring the history of the show. Y&R also needs to pay its vets so that they stop losing familiar faces. You can change sets, writers, etc, but characters and actors the audience has invested in are not something soaps can give up.

With regard to Days, I think the show mostly needs a bigger budget. In addition to more money, they could do with more Eileen Davidson, more romance instead of forced pairings like Rafe/Hope, and MUCH LESS doppleganger drama, rape (of both female and male characters), and other acts of violence against female characters. Ron Carlivati has talent, but he needs a better supportive team who will challenge his writing ideas (since the way Days shoots prevents the audience from doing so effectively). As silly as this may sound, since Eileen Davidson somehow managed to prevent Ron from turning Susan Banks into a cartoon during the Will resurrection arc, I think she would be a great adviser/co-writer to keep Ron in check.

Sean Robbins

I completely agree with you. As far as “I think Y&R needs to find a writing team that combines the strengths of Chuck Pratt and Sally Sussman (but not necessarily those two people)” goes I think a good choice could be Robert Guza Jr and Meg Bennett.

Bennett would, of course, know the history. While Guza has gotten some flak over the years, I think most of it is unwarranted. You would get a balanced canvas, with excellent pacing and a sense of empathy and poetic justice in the writing. This keeps the show fresh and engaging.

For all the viewers who want Steve B to be Jason Q….. you had Jason Q with Billy Miller. It is exactly how the writers told him to play it and he did but SB’s fans wanted StoneCold back – Billy’s JM was too soft they said. Well, you got what you wanted. The real Jason Morgan. The one whose “family” is,in his own words, Sonny, Carly & Michael & who felt the worst thing that happened the night he got shot was “Bernie died”.
Enjoy your boy – he’s back.

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.

Robin Givens Tapped As Lead For OWN’s New Soapy Family Drama, ‘Ambitions’

There is a new soap in town from creator/executive producer Jamey Giddens from an idea by executive producer Will Packer, and they have found their leading lady for the ensemble cast. 

Robin Givens (last seen in the soaps on B&B and CW’s Riverdale) has been tapped to play the role of Stephanie Carlisle in Ambitions set to premiere on OWN in 2019. 

Stephanie is the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers. Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of the Carlisle family law firm and quietly fumes about her father Stephen’s condescending assertion that she’s simply not ready yet.

The series is billed as a multigenerational family saga centered around one woman who, having recently relocated and intent on revitalizing her marriage, finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city.

According to Deadline, rounding out the series regular cast are Essence Atkins (Marlon, Half and Half), Brian White (Ray Donovan, Scandal), Kendrick Cross (Acrimony), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) and Erica Page (Ozark, Bad Dad Rehab).

The show is currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia.

So, excited to see Ambitions when it makes its debut? What do you think about Robin Givens joining the series? Comment below.

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.
