Thank you, pferrando! What

Thank you, pferrando! Smile

What an awesome week - I'm especially glad to see DAYS' numbers up, and that they are at number three on all categories, instead of being last, as they had been for months. Good for Days!

@everyone: Days overtook

@everyone: Days overtook Cartooni's writing! What does that tell you? Camp is not a sustainable model.

These days Days has been soap opera not camp. I think they put forth the effort and it showed.

Y&R is doing well too! So the I's have it. Josh and Jill and pat themselves on the back. They have taken what Maria Hell left us with and turned it around. Take a bow!

Wow, those Women 18-49

Wow, those Women 18-49 numbers for all four shows are scary bad. Look at GH and how far they've fallen. I think ATWT and OLTL had better numbers in that demo when they were cancelled.

david... No need to put down

david... No need to put down Maria Bell. Im glad that Y&R is up, hopefully SONY & CBs are happy. Goes to show that we are wrong -- the viewers of today must love turtle-head Dylan, con-woman Chelsea, and the kooky hi-jinks of Avery and Nick!

David, she was a huge star in the twenties, thirties, and forties.

Dolores Del Rio.

When opportunities dried up in Hollywood she returned to her country of origin, Mexico, and became a legendary star there too.

You're welcome

You're welcome Yoryla...

Actually Kelley, Y and R was up over 17% for the week in that demo...
And when OLTL and ATWT were cancelled, they were no where near that.

But overall I think the ratings are still showing that the remaining soaps are pretty healthy if all of them show between 100,000 and 300,000 more viewers over last year.

If they can maintain this through the summer months it'll be a good sign.

@pferrando: That great! A healthy dose of optimism. And the writing on Y&R and Days appears to be worth it!

Since I have been watching

Since I have been watching Y&R on soapnet the last month it's given me an opportunity to check Days out. Days, IMO is the soap to watch. I'm glad the numbers are reflecting what a great job they are doing telling classic soap stories. I think if NBC would get behind their lone soap and start promoting it the way CBS has done with their shows Days could give B&B a run for it's number 2 spot.

Does Days have new writers?

Does Days have new writers?

I'm just asking because just a couple of months ago, the board was being lit up with its fans complaining about the Jennifer storyline I think?

Or was it just a shift in storylines?

Same writers. The Jennifer +

Same writers.

The Jennifer + Dan storyline has just been on the backburner since April (thank God). However, I'm afraid they're getting back to it now with the coming of Jennifer's son, JJ. Hopefully I'm wrong, and they keep it as the C-storyline, at best.

Days is probably the show

Days is probably the show that we get least information about what is happening behind the scenes; but my feeling is that something happened to put the fear of the Lord or Cancellation into the writers and/or producers.

The improvement has been phenomenal.

No, the Dannifer storyline

No, the Dannifer storyline with Chloe just finally came to a head about four or five weeks ago after eating up 4 and 5 days worth of story for a good long while.

Either way, glad to see DAYS picking up ratings-wise in the last few weeks--it is consistently the best of the 4 shows that I frequent(don't watch GH or B&B). It's been amazing for the last several weeks and this week it's been pretty damn good too. Just hoping they can keep the momentum going.
Again, can't get outta here without saying if you're not watching you should give it a try.

@SoapArmageddon: Yeah buddy! They have picked it and got it going on. They didn't come to play. They came to win. And they deserve to! It is drama.

I think it just took Days

I think it just took Days time to fix the issues and we are just now seeing what they have done 3 months ago.. imagine the summer storylines if they stay on track! Please GOD....don't let Eileen Davidson leave Salem again....Ever! I have missed her character for soooo long and knew that it would be dynamite again if Kristen came back (and any of her other characters too) lol Smile

Love it!! Lawd, wouldn't Laura die if she knew Jennifer was Kristens best girl friend? Laura HATES that woman!!!! lol too funny.
