EDITOR'S NOTES: Most of the primetime soaps were either off the air or in repeats last week, but GLEE's fall finale aired and performed well.


  1. Look, ATWT tied GH!!!

    Um, CBS, why the hell are you canceling ATWT???

    World Turns 1.9/1.8 (+.1)—tie — GH 1.9/1.9

  2. Seems like CBS likes to cancel soaps right when they are on a creative high. But then again GL and ATWT should not have waited until a cancelation warning went out to shape up.

    Sad GH, real sad...I guess this kinda proves that soap fans don't really care about stunt casting (Franco). I know I just want to see good stories with the characters/actors I know.

  3. Angel,

    I agree with you. Christopher Goutman, Jean P., and TeleNext's execs deserve equal blame.
