  1. GH will keep falling in the ratings with the trainwreck they call "Entertainment."

  2. Bring back Stefan Cassadine the fine Stephen Nichols and team him once a again with Laura's Genie Francis,their chemistry is hot! Give them a real romance that they should of gotten the first time around,their love/hate relationship kept me on the edge of my seat for years and they'd sure pump of the ratings because I know of alot of fans who would tune in for their scenes. Laura needs a real man who adores and cherishes her but encourages her too and that's Stefan!

  3. Speaking of ratings, Broadcasting & Cable has numbers for Sunday's Daytime Emmy Awards:

    "The telecast, hosted by Sam Champion, Robin Meade and AJ Hammer, averaged 213,000 adults 25-54 from 8-10:30 p.m., down 25% from 2012 and 913,000 total viewers, steady with last year's 912,000."
