Re: Spoilers and coming from the Spoiler Queen/Guru, I completely agree with you. OLTL spilled everything. There was next to nothing that wasn’t out there regarding the 40th Anniversary shows and the surrounding episodes. Did I still love it? SURE DID! There is a difference however with GH. When I report things, there are some spoilers that are 100% for sure, there are some that are slightly off and then there are the flat out fanfic/fakes. It makes it a little more interesting despite GH being the less interesting show. Neilson Ratings!@? Love it! Those ratings are severely flawed!

Very glad to see you all continue to talk about the absurdities of the Nielsen ratings, one of my main issues when it comes to soaps. ————————————— THE EDGE OF NIGHT: 2008 – Hi-Octane Version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA5DbWdX8IA Log in to Reply Revafan001 July 29, 2008 We need a new ratings system.. Like inglood DVR. They should be able to tell what shows are recorded and if they are watched.. Agreeded with all of what was said about the ratings. GL/AMC/ATWT/GH/B&B/Y&R Fans!!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 July 30, 2008 Did I hear you guys right re: OLTL having a small budget? I read on another blog (can’t remember which one) that OLTL actually has a really high budget due to expensive actors, the high number of those actors being used in each episode and because of all the sets they use in a single ep… Log in to Reply Mark July 30, 2008 Hey! I’m on the list! (since I’m a Nuke fan LOL) I agree about the ratings. They changed that earlier this year here in the Netherlands. They are now counting how many viewers watch something on DVR later (I think it’s in the 7 days after the original broadcast). They release that information seperately and the last time I checked, a soap was at the top of that list. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
