Too bad about OLTL. It should be above the other ABC soaps.

I know the ratings never really change but I hope ATWT keeps going up, I think it's improved lately.

This was the first Olympic week for DAYS last year, right? Thatīs why the ratings were so much better.

Still, not bad. DAYS as an absolut must see soap now, IMO, so itīs good people noticed. I hope next week we will get back in 2īs. The show really deserves it.

Yeah, it was Olympic week last year - that's why DAYS was so high.

I agree and I hope so too. I just hope ratings don't fall further because Corday is known to panic and I'm afraid he's going to do something stupid to ruin Tomlin's momentum.

Hey Toups. Thanks for the ratings. I have to laugh at how much our definition of "decent" has transformed. I just keep remembering that GL had to sustain 1.8 to avoid cancellation. I would kill somebody to know how they arrived at that number because I'm sure it wasn't plucked out of thin air. It had to constitute some sort of breakeven, or minimum financial threshhold to justify profit objectives.

That was definitely a myth, the "1.8 threshold." Total viewers, households, teens, 18-34....none of that matters. The networks sell their ads in daytime based solely on the 18-49 demo. And in that demo, the "threshold" for cancellation would vary by show, and by network. ABC's could probably drop the lowest in that demo and still be sustainable since they own them and could make their own budget cuts.

Glad to see ATWT go up. I was hoping for a 1.8 but considering last week was the best week in a long time. I can see some still not watching. At least the numbers were solid down the board with 1.7 and viewers going up and Friday's numbers up too for Holden's accident. This week has been another good week. Maybe ATWT will go up another point next week.

Wow. Its a shame that these ratings are considered decent these days. Haven't watched soaps in awhile but quality must be really terrible if random Kardashians are able to rack up more viewers.

I was doing some catching up on news reports on GL and one of the articles stuck out to me and it was surfaced back in June. That P&G intentionally ran Guiding Light into the ground to get out of the television business and focus more on their products. I have to see this is as true due to the fact that both GL and ATWT are the only soaps to be cancelled before 2011. Most of these soaps could've easily been saved for another two years or more like ABC's drastic move to save costs to move to LA, OLTL to move to their studio, Sony's Y&R and DAYS to cut costs and secure liscences with their networks.

Both GL and ATWT could've still been around past 2010 even if they were on their last legs. It was the handlers on the show that intentionally ran it into the ground. I knew all along there was something weird about that. What made it even more weird was the fact that GL couldn't find a network. I think they could've easily found a network even a limited one. I was also reading that they might've not even tried to find a home at all which I believe. With DAYS looking likely to be axed before any of these soaps just two years ago, it was saved b/c they were able to cut costs and Sony still values it to keep it around.

I'm sad that GL is leaving the airwaves just like everybody else but I still have hope that the show will air in some capacity in the near future. I believe somebody is going to step up and save this show. My idea is maybe having one of these parent companies pick it up after it airs its final episode. Since Sony seems to value their soaps b/c they do very well for them worldwide, why not have Sony pick up both GL and ATWT in a package and distribute them the same way?

ABC owns their soaps. CBS doesn't own GL or ATWT. There is not the same synergy. If CBS wants done with these shows they will happily cancel them. P&G has little say. I don't have a hard time believing no other networks wanted GL. Only DirectTV took Passions, which was supposed to be a much hipper, youth demo soap, and look how long that lasted.

Considering the persistent rumors that OLTL will be gone within a few years, and how ABC has let AMC and GH fall completely into the trash heap, I can't bring myself to praise them.

Oh yeah, I forgot, this thread didn't have five pages of people calling for Toups to finish dinner and post...snark
