I feel the writing lately on Y&R is terrible. So dragged out, the new Adam it’s been well over a year.

Cool..CBS rules in the ratings..I am sure is all about 18-49, and there is when ABC gets more ratings.

I am not sure about that, Omar. Recent news reports have come out about how The Nielson ratings have been somewhat unreliable and erroneous. I read that they erroneously made it look like GH had higher ratings in that demographic than it really did.
In any case, I don’t look at the soaps as competing with each other. Rather, they are competing against other afternoon programming genres such as talk shows, cooking shows and game shows. Any rise in ratings for any soap is good news for the soap opera ratings genre period and will help sustain their existence. So, this is good news for all of the four existing soaps.

Thanks for that update, I did not know Harry..AND yes any gain on any of the 4 soaps is good news for the genre…There is still so many displaced soap viewers out there that stop watching daytime soaps after their soaps got cancelled..If those fans tune in to one or more of the remaining 4, ratings for genre will rise some more!! I just wish the networks will work hard at trying to lure young viewers via advertising and promotions..We need a new generation of viewers, once we all drop dead, LOL.

Great news Young and The Restless is on fire now, The ratings really prove that. I love Gina Tagnoni as the new Phyllis. Gina is a terrific actress, I am so happy Gina is back in daytime, where she belongs.

Agreed–Y&R is hitting it out of the ball park these days. Not a fast forward moment to be found. Even the Winters’ family is interesting.

Neil being blind has turned him into an acting champ! Shame on Devon! Cane, how can he stand by and watch this going on? Neil will eventually regain his eye sight and he will see things that will confirm his suspicions! I see him keeping his recovery a secret until he gets Devon and Hillary right where he wants them. I cannot believe the Winters family is actually entertaining again!

I’m loving Gina Tognoni as Phyllis! For once I didn’t fall asleep during a scene with Jack in it

Bah ha ha! And, Mark? I adore Peter Bergman but he and Kelly (love Cady too) are rather somnolent inducing together.
jack looks like a deer stuck in the cross lights while Phyllis rapidly and intensely interrogates him about what has been going on for the last year.

This is good news for the cbs soaps. Y&R was great last week with the Shick wedding and the return of Phyllis.

I love Y&R…and, I love Gina Tognoni…not with Jack, though…ugh!!!!!!
And, as much as I lavish my admiration on Gina, I hope I will stop comparing her to Michelle…it isn’t fair to Ms Tognoni. I chide myself because Gina is an outstanding protagonist.

Always loved these shows. Y and R my all time favorite. I like all the new character changes, it gives others a chance to show their acting abilities.

On B&B I’m loving the sexy Caroline/Ridge storyline. It’s what soaps are all about. Two gorgeous people working together, fighting their feelings, while Ridge goes for broke to win the CEO position and Maya schemes to break up Rick and Caroline. Fans like me must be tuning in to see them because this is one of B&B top stories. Go B&B!

Great news. She is a good actress and still looks great! I can see her connected to Madeline. She actually looks like a younger sister of Donna Mills.

Can someone explain to me as we rejoice over Y&R’s ratings why Nikki made a deal to meet with Ian as long as he agreed to testify that Dylan didnt kill him. What the? I mean Paul heard Nikki talking to Ian and Paul is the Chief. What more does he need to release Dylan. Ian is alive! Why is Dylan still in jail? What did I miss?

I wish I could answer you, but I only watch Days of our Lives on NBC!!!

Paul knew Ian wasn’t dead and was setting Dylan up for his murder but he needed proof of this. So a plan was devised that Nikki would put an ad in the newspaper asking Ian to contact her. If he did, they would use Nikki as bait to entrap Ian, which would prove Dylan didn’t kill him, but also so they could arrest Ian for kidnapping Mariah.

When Ian contacted Nikki she had to give the impression her reason for wanting to meet with him was for Dylan’s sake. They had to give Ian the impression his plan to frame Dylan for murder had worked, and that was Nikki’s only motivation to see him, to help her son, otherwise he might suspect it was a trap.

Paul needed to have Ian physically in custody otherwise because he is Dylan’s father, they might think he fabricated evidence to get his son free. So the point of the sting operation, wasn’t just prove Ian was alive, but to capture him as well.

And Dylan is free or will be free by Monday’s show.

Viewers are looking forward to scenes between Bechtel and Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava), Genie Francis (Laura) and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin). Will those all come to pass? Stay tuned.

So, happy to know Bechtel is back as the mischievous Spencer C.? Comment below.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
