  1. Can I just say GO DAYS! and ehmmm suck on that Guza! Ok now that that's out of the way I totally predict Days to beat B&B (at least for a week) when the Alamains come back especially watch me jinx them.

  2. What the heck is wrong with people abandoning OLTL when it is such a well written show?? I wonder if the Oliver/Kyle storyline is pushing away some viewers? Or, are people tired of Todd?

    BTW, hello!! Look at ATWT! If it's numbers keep improving, talk of cancellation may be put to rest for awhile.

    Does Brian Frons look at the AMC ratings and say to himself, maybe it's time for a co-headwriter to assist Chuck Pratt?

  3. I'm afraid the Oliver/Kyle storyline might actually pushing fans away or the Stacy storyline. I for one am loving OLTL especially now that Tea is back and Vicki and Dorian have more story. AMC however needs serious help Frons needs to fire Pratt but you know he wont. Can we just bring back Agnes Nixon have her write some storylines and let her choose her own replacement when she gets done?

  4. I look at these ratings sadly, but then I look at the report down below that AMC and OLTL ratings are way up on Soapnet. So does that mean that Nielsen is in fact documenting that these shows are being watched, but on SoapNet instead of ABC?
