  1. Bummer! OLTL's ratings haven't spiked. It's the best show on the air but it can't generate a large number of new viewers. I don't know what more the show can do.

    And, it's interesting to see ATWT has more eyeballs viewing it than AMC.

    Recently, ATWT has changed directions and has improved dramatically. The question is why did it wait so long to implement these changes? Viewers have been demanding them for ages.

    Y&R has got to turn things around. This has been the Summer of Gloom:

    1) Psycho Adam
    2) Psycho Mary Jane (kinda fun)
    3) Tortured Ashley
    4) Reliquary 2.0: The Toroni (at least the original was dramatic and not ridiculous. Tom Fisher, art thief?)
    5) Lily's Cancer.

    Then there's the utter mishandling of the Winters and the bizarre and disturbing incest between Devon and Tyra. That made no sense . It was cheap way of forcing the exit of Tyra.

    Where's the fun? Where are the Glo by Jabot kids?

    Other than the infrequent appearances of Gloria and Jeffrey, there's been little comedy.

    Where's the romance or excitement?

    Apparently, Mary Jane is going to kidnap someone, leading to a legacy character's death. Why?

    Someone pass the Welbutrin and Prozac, this show is such a downer.
