Okay so we have Y&R which is about to celebrate it's 40th anniversary special and GH which is celebrating their 50th? Which soap do you think is doing the best job planning and leading up to their special episode?

I think they are both doing

I think they are both doing an admirable job. GH is bringing back lots of vets. They are re-visiting the nurses ball. Most importantly they have gotten their act together.

Y&R is doing the 10 episode retrospectives and getting their act together more and more every week.

Also both shows have received a butt load of press over their anniversary's. Between GH's People magazine cover, Y&R being given ample coverage in their daytime line-up, and both soaps being heavily touted on social media, it's been a win-win situation. Given everyone was praying over the body a year ago, it's quite the turnaround in 2013 that soaps are in again.

Kudos to both! I hope they are around for many more years to come.

I agree that best not to

I agree that best not to touch this one.

There is no point in discussing which one is best. This subject could be quite volatile. I'm sure they are both great in their own way. There's enough room for everyone, right...

I think both shows are doing a good job. I'm loving the opening of Y&R each day with the actors talking about the show and their favorite scenes. Very well done!! Loving GH for bringing back so many vets and looking forward to the Nurses Ball. I just wish GH would become a bit less cartoonish and bring back more drama and romance, which Y & R is doing and it's really been rockin'. Both shows have great actors!! Y&R has been using the cast well, GH needs to take lessons from them. It's great having the vets back, give them a STORY, and bring back the love in the afternoon that GH once was.
I wish both shows a VERY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY and here's for many more years to come!

Yeah, they have two different

Yeah, they have two different identities, and they are doing two different things. Not to mention, like was said on the podcast, the 40th and 50th are two different things in my opinion.

But they both seem to be doing a great job. That's as far as I'm taking it. lol

I don't, nor will I ever

I don't, nor will I ever watch GH. So, I'm very, VERY loyal to Y&R, even during those horrible LML and MAB years (although, I stoppped watching Y&R for several months due to Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) not being on screen).

I'm loving all the attention CBS is giving Y and R's anniversary. A bit shocked too, but very pleased.

I AM jealous though that GH seems to be getting a bit more press coverage...the People cover, story on MSN, but well deserved. ANYTIME anything hits 50 it deserves a good party.

Since I'll be there in two years, I expect a People cover too!

I'm pretty sure Y&R will be on the air to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, and I'm hopeful that GH will be on the air to celebrate its sixtieth. Smile
