  1. Wow @ GH .. What will ABC do??? These numbers are horrible

    1. GH's ratings make me really sad. The new regime has their work cut out for them.

  2. It's going to be really difficult for GH to get that audience back. Most people who stop watching a soap eventually get on to others things and forget about it, plus soaps do not play episodes on holidays when most people might think of taking a peek to see what's going on.
