  • TiredSoapFan

    Hate that B&B was down again this week. But here lately that seems to be par for the course. It is rare if CBS and the other networks are up at the same time. Been loving B&B and the Stephanie scenes. I will most likely watch until Stephanie leaves and as I said last week, daytime soaps are done for me. It has been an enjoyable ride. But just so over so many of the things happening on the soaps these days.

    Y&R not too sold on the new regime there yet. Didn’t like them on Hollywood Heights and not seeing much progress so far. Doubt I will watch it much longer.

    Glad to see GH fall in some categories. Haven’t been able to sit through a whole episode in over 2 weeks now. The show is just one big hot mess. The only thing I am even glad to see is that it seems someone at ABC finally realized that all the OLTL characters and talk of bringing more wasn’t going to save the show. Now it is all talk of former GH stars and that is what the focus is on. But for many of us hardcore GH fans it is a little too late.

    And Days gave up on it years ago. Nothing happening there from what I read even interests me at all.

    • TiredSoapFan

      Oh and as far as the GH returns, I have no faith in Ron C. writing for any of them the way they should be written for. There is no way I am going to tune in to watch him crucify their history and mess it up the way he has with Duke. His over the top and caricature, cartoony, campy writing is just awful. Add to that the man is a diva who needs to be knocked down a few pegs. The way he answers fans on Twitter proofs what kind of person he is. Thus why I blocked him but I see enough of his Tweets to know what a diva and sad person he is. He definitely is not a professional at all. He acts like some immature writer on the Internet who posts fan fiction and then when someone says something negative they go off. Grow up Ron. If you can’t handle criticism then get off the Internet and get off Twitter.

    • okdsokdfsokf

      what are you talking about GH is on fire. -30,000 total viewers is not that big of deal…. so yeah.

      • David

        exactly and GH is actually up in the key women 18-49 demo which is how they sell the ads and is the only rating that matters for them. And they are up in total viewers from last year way to go GH, Frank and Ron

      • TiredSoapFan

        They also lost in the 18-34 too — both viewers and in the points. I don’t care. I can bet if they were up 30,000 instead of down you would be making a big deal out of it and if I said 30,000 wasn’t that big of a deal, you would say the opposite. All I know is they still lost which means 30,000 people weren’t entertained by the mess put on screen and tuned out. Remember last week that is what was said is all that mattered. If they were entertained when they tuned in — then they were not entertained and tuned back out.

        • David

          18-34 doesn’t matter (but for the record GH is #1 in that demo if you want to go there) and they were still up in that category compared to last year before Frank and Ron Took over. The only category that matters is the women 18-49 and GH was up in that demo and doing very well. Why because the show is better than it has been in a long time, but some people wanna whine and cannot deal with that. So TiredSoapFan go cry to Mommy because you hate Frank and Ron yet they have made GH a fantastic show now come back and whine like the big baby you are. Make sure Mommy changes your diaper first though

    • David

      The only category as you and so many will remind us that counts is the women 18-49 and guess what GH is up in that key demo of women 18-49 The next most important is 18-34 and GH is number GH is done in total viewers nut remember again as you and so many people will remind us when those GH numbers are down in that categor the 18-49 is what matters. GH is on fire so may great returns already, and more coming in November and Decemeber. These week with AJ’s return has been fantastic and I bet the ratings will be up even more in the key demo come nexdt way. Way to go Frank and Ron, awesome job in getting the ratings up in the only category that matters Fantastic keep it up and keep upsetting the so called “hardcore” fans are more like the :”whiner fans” because it isn’t there way so they wanna cry to Mommy that Frank and Ron have ruined the show. Go change your diapers WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    • Jen

      You know almost every week like clockwork I come to this site wondering to myself “What petty, bitter comments is TiredSoapFan going to make about GH today?” I seldom voice my thoughts, but frankly I am fed up. You don’t like Carlivati or Valentini at GH. You don’t like the OLTL characters on GH. You think the whole regime are hacks. We get it–you are a broken record! But guess what, you don’t speak for everyone (though you certainly speak in a great enough volume for everyone). For someone who claims to have “given up” on GH, you certainly still like to complain about the show more than anyone else on this site.

      • TiredSoapFan

        Oh wow another one of the Internet positive folks have put me in my place. Oh goodness what will I do. Oh geesh life as I knew it is over. Another of Ron C.’s idiot followers told me exactly what he or she thinks.

        Oh wow and again I don’t give one care about what you had to say about me or what I say. I come on here to express an opinion. I speak for myself and myself alone. I do know from reading other boards that others feel the same way. But I would say how I feel no matter what.

        I don’t care that you like GH. I don’t care if you want to marry Ron C and have his babies. I speak for me and for me alone. If you don’t like it you don’t have to read it.

        And you can come on here call me a thousand names. Chew me out. Call me a hater or an idiot. Or follow your leader David, Troy Lee Turner, Ron C. or whoever it is. The fact won’t change I think GH sucks. I don’t like it. And even if I never watch another episode. I’ll still say it and I’ll post it on any board I want to.

        And I may just do it because I know it bothers you guys so bad. Good grief. It’s a TV show I didn’t just insult your Mama or your Daddy. But I doubt some of you would care as much if I did. It’s pathetic. I find it funny too that only this new breed of GH fan is that way too. You can say something bad about Days that you don’t like. You can say something bad about Y&R. And even B&B. Those fans are adults and have a grip on reality. We all realize that not everyone is going to like all things.

        But not this new breed of GH fans. They have lost all sense of reality. What a great set of fans ABC and Cartooni are breeding. Another reason not to be a fan of the show anymore.

        So just keep it up Jen. Say all you want and be fed up all you want. I personally am fed up with fans like you who think you can censor what folks say. You might shut others up but you won’t shut me up. so be fed up all you want. Some of us are fed up too. I promise you if you guys create a board where no one can say anything bad about GH I won’t go there. I’ll be happy to stay away from fans like you. I don’t want anything to do with fans who try to shut other fans up. I would rather post with fans who know how to act like adults and realize that these are TV shows we are discussing.

        And if you will look at my post. I always make observations about all 4 shows in my first post. It is only the cry baby whining GH fans who seem to start a big war about it each week. Grow up.

        • Former Poster

          What is funny is all Jen did is come here and state her opinion how tiredsoapfan posts the same thing every week. She did not call him names, she just said we get it already and pointed out the constant same old comments every week. And who imnmediately attacked and called her names. The crybaby known as tiredsoapfan, richard, classictvfan, and any other name you may post under. It is funny when positive posts start turning up thats when the attacks begin. No one said you didn’t have a right to post your negative thoughts but dont get upset because someone comes back and points out things that you do. Or defends GH, its producer and writer. Just like you can attack them people have the right to defend then. But you cannot handle that Just like you and Patrick cannot handle the fact that people are actually enjoying GH Oh the fact that the numbers are up or the fact that ABC is actually behind the show. You are upset because you wanted Frank and Ron to fail and instead they proved you wrong. Yes it took time which I had said it would take time to turn it around. Now we are seeing that turn around. The time slow change actually turned out to be the best thing for GH and it will hit 50 years and beyond. And the two people you dislike the most are responsible for that Frank V., Ron C. Along with the great cast and crew of GH who have been invigorated like never before. Morale is so high and the success just keeps that morale going.

          IN closing how is this for attacking you TiredSoapFan. Too bad you weren’t on the jersey shore and swept up by Hurricane Sandy, then we wouldn’t have to hear your broken old record every weeek. Have a great day

          • TiredSoapFan

            You can wish me dead all you want you idiot. All you proved is how low of a human being you really are. At least I keep my comments to the show. Idiots and low life creeps like you can’t do that so of course you have to attack folks. Well if you attack me I will attack back.

            Well keep it up idiot. It still won’t change my opinion and it won’t change the way I see things. No matter what you profess in the only opinion that matters to me (Mine)……..

            GH sucks.
            Ron C. is a talentless hack

            GH sucks
            Ron C. is a no talent hack

            Cartooni Cartooni Cartooni Cartooni Cartooni — hacks hacks hacks

            And all that higher numbers prove is that people will watch anything. Look at all the high ratings and followings for shows like Jersey Shore, Dance Moms, Honey Boo Boo — oh year high or higher ratigns sure mean something is great. Doesn’t prove a thing. GH still sucks.

          • Former Poster

            Yep you can use all the names, and comments about GH and Ron C. Wow and you call me immarture. The GH ratings are up ABC is happy with it as are a lot of people and you just cannot handle that. You can use all the names you won’t. It still will not change the fact I wish you had been on that roller coaster that was swept into the ocean of the jersey shore. Your response has me laughing. Thanks for that I needed that today

  • David

    Way to go GH in the key women 18-49 demo. Up from last week and last year in that key demo and only 93.000 short of being number one in that key demo. That is the demo that the advertisers base what they will pay for commercials during the show. Great to see that up. Shows how great GH is right now and the great job Frank and Ron have done!

  • Sierra

    Seriously, tired soap fan, you are worried about RC crucifying characters and messing up their history? Did you watch during the Guza reign of terror when Robert, Holly, Laura, Rick Webber and Anna were turned into a joke and the Luke and Laura legacy and backstory was totally rewritten? Anna this time around is back to being a strong, feisty, take no prisoners woman. As far as his campy writing style, yes it is over the top sometimes but it is entertaining. He respects history way more than Guza and at least all of his women are not slobbering over Sonny and Jason. This show now sure beats watching Sonny throw stuff, mumbling and Jason staring and shooting. He gutted the show and drove a lot of viewers away. A lot of them probably won’t come back now but they have made a start and given the show new life. Next up: The Nurses Ball, hooray.

    • TiredSoapFan

      Sorry see your reasoning makes doesn’t even add up. Just because Guza did it an dI hated it then, it still doesn’t make it right for Ron C. to do it. I hated it when Guza did it, and I hate what Ron C. is doing. As to the other that is your opinion and that is fine. As to me I know what I like and don’t like. And I don’t like what Ron C. is doing and I am not the only one. As to characters yes I am seriously worried about what Ron C. can do to them the same way I was always worried what Guza did to them. Two wrongs don’t make a right. I just find it funny that folks give Ron C. a pass for the same stuff that they gave Guza flack for. Ron C. is just as bad of a writer as Guza was — in some terms worse — he just has fans and the press on his side for now. But remember even Maria Arena Bell was the media and fan darling a few years ago too. And we all know how that turned out. I saw through all the Bell love then and knew what a hack she was. And I have known for awhile now even before GH what a hack Ron C. is.

      • David

        As Sierra pointed out Ron C is not changing the characters he is getting them back to their rots. GH has so much history that Guza throw out the door. Now Ron C is bringing that history back. Anna is back to be a strong poiwerful women, and is the police commissioner. The Quartermaines are being featured again. They are brining back the nurses ball! They have characters returning the show is just so good. Guza was garbage and now the show although yes can be campy some times the characters are back to being true to the history and the history of the show is respected. But some people will never see that so it is pointless to even try to point that out to you. Now back to your regularly scheudled hating and whining from TiredSoapFan

  • Patrick

    Poor David. He comes on with long tirades yesterday saying that posters like me were the ones jumping everytime someone said something positive. And that we jumped on every positive statement and posted a comment on every post.

    Look around folks at the posts this week. The poor boy can’t handle the truth. He is such a sad whiny person. And he can’t leave it to the TV show either like the negative comments were. No he had to issue the attacks again.

    Oh geesh someone said something negative about his TV show. I guess he’ll have to spend extra hours in therapy this week. I guess he did earn his check from ABC this week or is it Ron C. and Frank V. that pay him to defend the shows so well. What do you have to do print them off and mail them in to prove your undying love for them.

    David you say that harcore fans are the whiner fans. Take a look around jerk, the only whining being done here is by you. Maybe you should be the one changing your diaper.

    GH sucks. Cartooni suck. When GH gets cancelled they will be just as much blame as Guza and Wolfe and Phelps and Frons were. And at this point thanks to a combination of all of them but even more so to Cartooni, I won’t even miss the show when it is gone. I will mourn what it was but definitely not what it has become — a sad sad outlandish cartoon of the show it once was.

    • Patrick

      Oops that should have said that he came on making those long tirades last week*.
