    Why the hell do they preempt their daytime show that is drawing the best ratings by far? Me and my friends don’t watch anything else on ABC anyway since they canceled AMC and OLTL.

      Martha, do you have no compassion for the lives lost one year ago here in Boston? Losing 20 minutes of a daytime soap opera to remember the lives lost in this horrible tragedy shouldn’t even be an issue. The reason it was done during GH is this was the time it happened one year ago. I am a big GH fan but in this case I can do without GH for 20 minutes to remember the lives of people. Sad that you would even complain.
