  1. GH was down overall week to week but not as much as YR and Days. Glad to see it up year to year and doing well in the demos. That was a good week for GH story & character wise imo. Haydon & Nik sex, Ned confessing his love to Olivia, return of Ellie and a whole week of my current favorites and most entertaining duo Nina and Franco.

    Poor Days though :( The months leading up to their 50th are going to be very harsh if this trend continues. If they were so far a head I think there could be some easy fixes to some of the central stories.

  2. DAYS is the best soap currently on the air so I am saddened to read about their ratings woes.
