Soaps are just TV shows. There's a stereotype that only women and gay men watch or like soaps but that is so incorrect. I'm straight and have watched soaps off and on since I was a kid (my family watches them). People who try to make fun of guys who watch them probably what soaps themselves and are afraid to "come out". Guys like that suck.

I know a lot of straight guys who watch soaps.

My grandpa is a retired coal miner and he watches the whole CBS lineup. And you do not bother him while his soaps are on lol

My Dad watches Days and Passions, he has my mom record them while he's at work.

I have met alot of guys at work who watch soaps, it just takes a while for them to admit it :lol:

My grandparents used to watch GL. Some of my first real memories of the show happened at their house. Their house was close to my school, so my mom would pick me up and we would go visit their house. I started watching because of the strong lineage of the show in my family.

Soaps appeal to guys whether they are straight or gay - sexuality has nothing to do with it!

I'm gay, but I don't only watch soaps for the shirtless hunks(although they are a major attraction). I like a good, longrunning SL, larger than life characters, action, romance, adventure, excitement etc.

    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
    • Yes to all of this. I mean I wouldn’t have mind seeing Nate find success and media attention with his Ask MD website or whatever but the switch to a media executive was the worst. 
    • Honestly, as long as they don't do the shaky cam stuff, I've been thinking it's bad enough now to lean into the Peapack model. Film at a real courthouse on the weekend instead of making a set, a real park instead of Chancellor park....
    • Jon Michael Reed in an Afternoon TV review of GL criticized the 75-81 theme as looking and sounding like a Tampax commercial.
    • RHOM What a chaotic but absolutely great show. Miami just gets better with every episode.  I've always loved Las Cubanas, but they have gotten very mean-girl-clique. Alexia has always been such a great RH, but last season's success has gone to her head. She is disdainful of Adriana (who, though hard to like by some, was 100% in the right( and lowkey threatened by Nicole. Larsa is, too. I can't believe Larsa is swanning around, photographing her feet in lucite heels, thinking that qualifies as work and that this makes her superior to a full-time anesthesiologist. Bringing in the lawyers could have been so contrived (which it was), but it was so breezy and the lawyers were in on the joke of it all.  I can't believe I once found Lenny hot. Those were gaslighting, threatening words the Peacock mics picked up. No wonder those sweet kids are acting out. They are confused and probably feel lowkey abandoned by their father for this new hoe.
