As part of their preview coverage of the upcoming Daytime Emmy Awards, Variety Online ran a piece on Guiding Light's new production model and sought out other soap execs to see if they planned to follow suit in order to keep soaps viable. 

ABC head honcho Brian Frons indicated his soaps wouldn't be adopting GL's new way of taping shows and says viewers tend to follow the soap with the stronger story regardless of production techniques. Days of Our Lives execs declined to comment for the article, but Variety touted Days' recent ratings surge and said the 43-year-old sudser might not have anything to worry about, for now.
