  1. Leo Mayer, Copil, Berankis, and Travaglia all retired from their matches today. Lots of guys pulling the ripcord in this heat.
  2. The pressure from the highers-up is largely off when a show is cancelled, so I can understand why shows would improve.
  3. Y&R has lost 25 percent of its 18-49 rating in a year. That’s stunning. 2020 (when Y&R’s contract is up) will be here before you know it. B&B is down 16 percent while DAYS is down a mere 8 percent. GH is up 4 percent.
  4. Yeah. I just think it’s going to be a “meet the new boss, same as the old boss” situation whether it’s NMS or Griffith or anyone else.
  5. Right. Exactly. You have all of these millionaires/billionaires living these modest lives because the shows can’t pay for more. Nothing about these wealthy, lavish lives feels credible.
  6. At the end of the day, that’s all that these shows can credibly portray with their budgets right now.
  7. And tomorrow and Wednesday will be even worse!
  8. Yikes, Y&R falls out of No. 1 in 18-49 for the first time in forever, hitting a new low, and DAYS also hits a new low in that demo. (That big Jarlena wedding couldn’t come at a better time.)
  9. This ain’t a scene, it’s a goddamn arms race.
  10. Ferrer is battling. I love how springy he still is. UGH. This camera on Armstrong makes these matches nearly unwatchable.
  11. Oddly, DY has just broken Delpo in the first game of Set 2. We’ll see if Anderson can close it out, but he’s in a totally different class than Ryan. He shouldn’t be struggling here, but I heard he has a calf issue.
  12. The Bells are loving these black folks from the UK these days.
  13. Eventually she won’t have a choice. Y&R isn’t going to be on forever even if they wanted her, and her window is closing...
  14. Hey, I suppose Y&R is finally being honest that they simply don’t give a damn about black people the Winters family. The idea of a token family for diversity is pretty insulting. I already feel TPTB’s investment in Rey.
  15. I’m not a huge KAndo fan, but only because I don’t find servebots that entertaining to watch. And when the serve is off, yikes. The shouting doesn’t bother me. So many players do that, including fan faves like Kvitova and Serena. And he seems nice by most accounts. I just can’t see myself rooting for Ryan unless he was playing Sock or Sandgren. Gavrilova just double-bageled Sorribes Tormo. Lol.
  16. Felix just retired from that match. And Kevin Anderson is about to go down two sets to one to freakin’ Ryan Harrison. If he goes out R1, he’ll lose a ton of points after last year’s final.
  17. Was it Greenlee who told Bianca, “Doing what comes naturally isn’t exactly your strong point”? Greenlee’s homophobia really got downplayed on AMC. I used to post on Datalounge back in the day as well (Gregorzick and the Cincy Soap Hood!), and while there were a lot of viciously clever posters and some REALLY juicy gossip I later learned to be true, there were also a lot of extremely damaged, toxic, cruel, racist, and self-loathing people there. It got to be too much after a while.
