HomeTVAll My ChildrenTop 10 Travesties of 2007 Luke Kerr December 12, 2007 All My Children, Countdowns, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Young and The Restless 3 Comments This was the easiest of our Top 10 of 2007 Lists. It fell into place almost without thinking. Any soap viewer who endured one or more of these travesties should give themselves a pat on the back for having made it through 2007. Here’s to hoping that TPTB have learned from the mistakes of 2007 and won’t repeat them in 2008. Top 10 Travesties 1. The Destruction of All My Children 2. The Dismantling of Young & Restless 3. The Systematic Extermination of the Quartermaine family (General Hospital) 4. The firings of Victoria Rowell, Adrianne Leon, Stuart Damon, Eileen Davidson, Drake Hogestyn, Phil Carey, and Cady McClain (twice!) 4. Cleo Babbit (As the World Turns) 5. Vincent (Passions) 6. Paul/Meg/Craig (As the World Turns) 7. Josh & Cassie (Guiding Light) 8. Constantine (Bold & Beautiful) 9. Touch the Sky (Days of Our Lives) 10.

Log in to Reply purplebraids December 12, 2007 The other travesties are break up married or couples that are dating just for angest over and over agsin. And hiring actors like the gril that plays LEYLA that can`t act .writing storylines that have people who are halve sister and brother sleep together and other relatives. Stop writing good gril characteers like ONE LIFE TO LIVES Jessica has one note and less layered then her twin sister Natalie and others make them same level as the bad grils but not losers or door mates make them stronger and just as smart. Stop having new characters takeover the canvse of show and bring them on slowly and more character driven storyline instead of event driven storylines .And a little less drama and murder for the hoildays please .
