    Cool now let’s hope they don’t ruin it with an all summer about an Abby’s snoozefest triangle or Rafe waking up from his coma to play hero to the rescue (been there done that and uber boring), he was not missed it is clear..don’t ruin your momentum Days and Corday…don’t ruin it.

    • Susannah

      I entirely forgot about Rafe! You’re right, that’s one of the main reasons this show has been so enjoyable, his smug face face has been lying in the hospital for the past month!

    I am a bit confused how is tying for last place a positive?

    • Hugo

      I think “tied for 4th place” means among all daytime programs, not just the soaps.

      • LukeNoahFan

        Yes, of course. And that tells us something about which programs get the most attractive viewers!!

  • Debi IluvSteffy Dorsett

    GO DOOL!
