    Oh the DC Crew is boss again! I can always expect big laughs but the truth too! Yes my Y&R was an utter mess and I agree w/ Jamey & Jillian MAB needs to kick rocks! Ron & Frank would make Y&R the ish!

    One Life was the best simply the best! Here hoping 2012 will be a great year for Daytime and wishing General Hospital all the best over there!

    This was the year that I gave up on Y&R.

    I came to the realization that force of habit is not a good enough reason to tolerate the blatant lack of respect they have been showing to longtime viewers of this show in countless ways:

    1. Lip service to diversity and stereotyping of minorities
    2. The intellectual assassination of Sharon
    3. The glorification of Phyllis’ slutbaggery
    4. The one-notedness of Victor
    5. The uselessness of Jack
    6. Failing to use Jess Walton properly
    7. The misuse of Maura West
    8. The snatch and grab hiring of Genie Francis for the purpose of playing a caricature
    9. Washed up prime-time actors and reality show rejects
    10. Resurrecting Cane
    11. Making Kevin and Chloe a couple with the romantic chemistry of Donny and Marie Osmond
    12. Halfheartedly telling the story of Nina’s reunion with her longlost son.

    That’s it. I’m keeping my list at twelve for the twelve days of Christmas.

    @ SoapArmegeddon – you said it all about Y&R.

    Still, I think GH was still worse than Y&R and just unbearable. The damned head writer’s utter incompetence sent our poor Luke over the edge (as we heard in the podcast!)

    Worst Soap: Hands down Y&R!!!! I have never in my life stopped watching this show until this year. This show is a mess. Watching yesterday’s episode I was just floored at how bad that episode was. It’s beyond ridiculous and they have a plethora of characters that need to go. Avery, Tucker, Sofia, Cane, Angelo, Angelina, and Genaura could all leave tomorrow and none of them would be missed. It disgusting what MAB has done to Bill Bell’s legacy. To sideline your leading lady for almost six months is dumb damn dumb! They need to cancel Y&R and put it out of it’s misery. Hamner, Hogan and MAB are horrible writers and just aren’t working for this show. Bring back Kay Alden and Jack Smith!
