    Errol, I don’t think I say THANK YOU enough for posting these each week, they are so appreciated. Even TV By the Numbers waits for you!! xxoo

  • One reason General Hospital has been horrible is because Anthony Zachara is on the screen whining incessantly all day long and this does not make captivating television. Therefore, I am not surprised about their ratings slipping.   I am surprised that Y&R has lost viewers  because I believe it is the best soap on tv right now.   I dont believe Days of Our Lives is experiencing some sort of “revival.”  It was up 280,000 viewers the first week and then lost nearly half of the total viewers in its second week right after the relaunch.  I would hardly expect it to wind up in the 4 million viewer range to be a contender with  Y&R.

    GH Last in every category but 1?? And that one they came second to last??
    So its not just me who is appauled with the writing and what is going on behind the scenes?

    Anthony Z was adorable with his weekly scenes. Now they have him leading a story?? If that is even a storyline.
    What storylines does GH have right now?? NONE.
    Where is Alexis?? Where is this talented actress who hasn’t had a storyline in years.
    Carly is being written into a hole. Deep hole.
    Jason is talking to the stars?? For a week??
    I love MB, but enough with Sonny and his past!!!! And his ‘women’.
    Why and where is Jasper Jax? Nik?
    Who are these new people they are bringing on for us to love?? The new lady cop is as exciting to watch as watching paint dry. Really??
    Even Lucky couldn’t stop crying at the demise of this show and had to leave for awhile!!!!

    When we were told a new head writer was coming on, we thought there was no where to go but UP.
    How wrong were we that we could & DID go further down??

    GH will be gone 9/2012. My question is, will PP even want them??
    As a 35 year vet of this show, I really wanted to ride this last year out with them.
    Can’t they show us long time viewers some respect for all our years, and give us a final year of GOOD writing?

    Devoted Fan since the 80’s.  “Career Woman” please change the storyline with Jason, so boring this week with Sam. It didn’t keep me glued to the soap at all this week.   Bring the storyline in with mystery that includes all the Spencers, and turn it around into the deep dark secret that maybe Luke is really the other son of the Cassidines, misspelled I believe.  Pump up the storyline with Franco and Jason.  Give Johnny hot romance,  and Ethan as well.   Sonny and the new Kate on the scene doesn’t move me to watch them at all. Put Sonny and Carly back into bed, Elizabeth and Jason, Anthony into bed with Cassidine  match of sorts.   Luke and Tracy back in bed having a good time.   Johnny play more of his music, put his dad into a rubber room with Lady Cassidine plotting their new scam of death and sex games.   Bring back Jax and Rick, Sonny’s brother, and also Maxie the original.   The new casted Maxie is not cutting it!!!   Also, Bring back Robin’s parents putting them together with Luke and his kids against the creepy Cassidines to include a great Halloween party that turns dark with elements of love, evil, greed, joy  guilt and unforgettable shocking surprise for us FANS…  Michael needs a younger romance, not thrilled with his present lover match, give her to Johnny going back to the Gentlemens’ Club a story around how women end up in those clubs and that livestyle and where it leads a young woman, and how to get them out of that lifestyle a model to younger woman.  Bring on the Hood and that drug seen connection with the Gentlemen’s Club for the shocking reality of it not being so exciting for young women to get into dancing and hooking for a living.     Need a Halloween Party this is exciting.    Pair Franco with someone exciting, maybe a child that is his in Port Charles and possible the other sibling on Jason and to reunite with their birth parents something on that line.   Sam is way to needy, change her story, please…..  Alexis and Max relationship going somewhere soon.  Where is Bobbie, bring her back on the scene with a lover wrapped up in saving her brother’s family from going DARK!!!
