Monday, December 15, 2008 12:11 AM ET | By Errol Lewis  (SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- The economy is a bust and we're in a recession.

Thursday, August 21, 2008 10:55 PM ET | By Errol Lewis(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- I've always thought that if you put on quality television with good writing combined with great acting, you'd find yourself well positioned for growth in the Nielsen Ratings. NBCs "Days of our Lives" proved just that during the week of August 11, 2008, when it moved up to 3rd place in the Nielsen rankings, pulling a 2.4/8 in households. Oh, wait...the Olympics were on. Never mind.With the Summer 2008 Beijing Olympic games as a lead-in, "Days of our Lives" was able to bring in 500,000 more households...
