On DOOL, John Black’s return has made the show appointment TV for me. Knowing/ hoping that there’s a Jarlena reunion in the future makes me tune in. I’m also enjoying the nice, slow pace of Hope and Aiden. He’s a newbie who is not being shoved in my face all the time. It’s a smart move to write him as nothing like Bo and not have him be related to Stefano (so far). Using Hope’s and Aiden’s kids as a way for the parents to meet is natural and original for DOOL.

Days is the best serial right now…i predicted the Hope and Aiden coupling and i knew one of the newbies would be evil…but i thought Liam would somehow be tied to Jordans mysterious past…like her abusive ex but i dont think that’ll happen now…i now think Jordan and Ben are in some protective witness program and this is why they change identities…still hoping Jordan and Ben are Eve’s children…maybe Eve was once involed with Liam and is coming to Salem to warn Jordan and Ben who are fleeing from him anyway?

Its good news for all soaps but the neilson system is outdated and discriminates against men and older viewers. Im certain these ratings would be much higher with a new ratings system that includes men and people of all ages and not just women of certain ages…we all buy things advertised on these shows!!!

GH today with Donna Mills first appearance as Ninas momma was its best in weeks…looks like Nathan is tied to Maddie…her son? her grandson? HER LOVER!!! Maybe they are working together to get Ninas money? They knocked off Ninas father too!!! OK, its not Couger Town but i do hope Nathan is Silas’s and Nina’s son like someone else said…and is this Jordan T.J.’s mommy???

Maybe Donna Mills character is Anthony Zaccharas sister and she was also Ric Lansings real mother and this is why she is funding the Jeromes to take Sonny down???

For the most part, all the storylines are working for me. Its the little details that get missed that bother me and mostly because they bother my husband, who watches the show from behind hos iphone but criticizes. I actually tweeted Rob C about it and he tweeted me back but it really was a lame response lol. I am talking about the AJ shooting. My husband keeps saying all they need to do is pull up the security footage from Ava’s building and check who came and went and what time. I agree but I also know its a… Read more »

The number of watchers is nit as important as ”who” is watching. advertisers care more about demographics. If they want to reach young adults, they don’t care that your soap is number one with people 55 and older. Not what they want. A Nielsen report is divided into a long list of age groups. While it may be tiresome to compare the numbers between women ages 18-34 versus men ages 25-54, these are the numbers that matter most to advertisers. Nielsen can’t monitor every home in a city, much less the entire country, so it chooses a small number of… Read more »

You are right about some especially demos but if 4 people are in a home doing neilsons all 4 is registered and participate in the research not just 1…yes, 18 to 49 is still the most important age group but they still keep record of all in that house of whoever is watching what…thats how they learn what childrens shows kids are watching and how they knew 50% of Edge Of Nights viewers were men, and how many over 50 are watching certain shows…i was part of the neilsons when there were 4 in my house and all were included…Now… Read more »

Total viewers, older viewers are important. All this talk about demos is great and makes people sound like they know something but there is a larger picture that is important. GH for example reaches approx 250,000 women 18-34 and about 700,000 women 18-49. Advertising is sold on a cost per thousand basis. If you only sold to advertisers targeting those demos, about 700,000 people, you could not generate enough ad dollars to sustain the show. The bulk of the advertising revenue is generated by the advertisers paying to reach the other 2 million viewers.The younger demos are important because they… Read more »

Well, I know they didn’t gain an increase by me, I’ve been too busy for over a month and am only able to watch via YouTube for GH (which has sucked since Robin left) and Days. Screw Y&R! I don’t care about the characters over there anymore. Spring Break and vacation time helped these increases, they’ll fall again after March is over.

Of course the soaps are doing well, there are only FOUR of them left and what else do “soap” fans have to watch? I gave up praying and hoping for ALL MY CHILDREN to come back, and now I watch Days of Our Lives which is – well, it’s all right, a tad predictable (Like Abby possibly being pregnant) but it’s well acted. The fact that three actors from AMC are on Days of Our Lives helps me get through it. I know that sounds absurd and I don’t mean to offend long-time viewers of Days. I enjoy watching it,… Read more »

I turned off Y&R on my set and DVR for the whole month, so don’t blame me for JFP and CBS/SONY not bringing Billy Miller Back and ruining our show! Shame on the rest of you for letting her laugh at the fans and arrogantly think she can destroy the show and the sheep will keep watching.

If Y&R doesn’t do it for you of course you should stop watching, reading updates and no more tweets! Give it a break,, If I stop watching I”ll stop everything.. of course the last 3 producers/ writers have ruined Y&R, don’t know if it will ever come back, soaps will not be around many more yrs.. For now I will continue to watch, word being “for now”

I have only been watching GH once a week. They have so many different story lines being juggled that it moves at a very slow pace. It’s too frustrating to watch. With all of the stories, there is NOT 1 love story happening. It’s “love in the afternoon” not constant turmoil !!!!!!!!!

I am a great Y&R fan, but do watch B&B fairly often. I would probably watch it more often if Wyatt wasn’t on. I usually do something else while he is on. His acting turns me off, & his Mother is beginning to annoy me too. Am enjoying Y&R a lot right now. Hoping for a real reunion for Nick & Sharon. Victor is an annoyance too. He needs to lose sometimes.

Summer fits better with Nick, that being said I hope she is Jack’s kid! Jack doesn’t need to lose again!.. I heard MS is coming back as Phyllis?? Anybody know?? I would hope for a recast not a fan fav. of MS…+ MS said she was not coming back, if she does, jobs must be hard to get and the dollars bring them back every time.. also way too many actors without jobs!!

3RD GENERATION Y&R FAN… Runs in the family lol. Being a faithful fan, for me, has only become painfully hard these last few months. Screw JFP… All this soap needs to do is stick with the wow factor characters, bring in decent younger talent, amp up the storylines and get rid of victor. Plzzz get it together!!! Let’s go ynr! #FOREVER-mrs.c,phyllis,billy,ADAM,chloe 🙁 :@

On GH, I would love if Ric turned out to be working with a very much alive Claudia Zacchara, since his father, Trevor Lansing, was secretly running the Zacchara mob for years. Then, Madeline would turn out to be Claudia’s mother, Anthony’s ex-wife, and they’d all be working together. I’d really like it if Madeline turns out to be Victor Cassadine’s current/ex-wife, and he would be Nina’s father. That would make sense, as Nina was being kept in the same facility where Victor brought Robin. I also think Nathan is Madeline’s son, so Nina’s brother, and Vinessa Antoine’s character will… Read more »

Loving B&B! The show is a fun, beautifully produced guilty pleasure. I don’t miss an episode. If I forget to DVR, I watch online. B&B reminds me of early Loving but a bit more updated. Glad all the soaps are doing well.

‘Queen Sugar’ Gets Season 6 Renewal by OWN; Ahead of its Season 5 Premiere

A month before its 5th season is set to bow, Queen Sugar has been renewed for its sixth season by OWN as it was announced on Thursday.  The first of its 10 episode season will drop on February 16th.

After having to shut down production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it gave DuVernay time to retool the series remaining season episode and to incorporate the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter protests of last summer and the general election. Production on Season 5 of the series did not begin until September of last year and ran till December 2020.

In a statement, Oprah Winfrey shared: “The way Ava creates space to allow these characters to embody real-world experiences is television at its finest and we are proud to continue this ground-breaking series. I hear from so many people that they see themselves in the Bordelon family, and my hope is that through this kind of storytelling the hearts and minds of people are opened for a deeper understanding and empathy of one another.”

Greg Vaughan shared via Instagram on the renewal: “Let’s GO!!! 🎉💥🎉💥@queensugarown @warnerbrostv #QS6 #breakingnews”
