GH has been improving in consistent baby steps, but it takes awhile for the ratings to reflect it.

What is the talk about changing or removing the Nelson system? Is that merely desperate speculation or is Digital TV in the US really making a difference?

TiVo has implemented a new ratings service, Stop Watch, that gives second-by-second viewing data in TiVo households. It has some advantages, in that it will get data from the POPULATION of TiVo viewers, rather than a sample.

At the moment, it is being rolled out in select cities.

Of course, TiVo per se is a problem, since DVR penetration is far from 100%, and many DVRs are not TiVos.

But I think it opens the future. As we get closer to full market penetration on addressable, interactive DVRS, we have a mechanism for collecting 100% data (rather like streaming internet sites already have). At that point, the accuracy of ratings will be pretty much unquestionable. We'll still need supplemental data to tell us how many people are watching, and whether they're ACTUALLY watching.

The TiVo-based ratings are also valuable because they will address the issue of fast-forwarding. This is useful, because it will give advertisers REAL information on who is watching the message.

OT: As long as programs are fast-forwardable, I believe advertisers will need to insert banner-ads and surround-ads (yep--on TV), so that the message is clearly visible, and cannot be fast-forwarded.

Bluelick, the only thing I agree with is the clearness and color, but since GH's production teams don't understand makeup or lighting, I find the show looking cheaper than ever. The lighting is identical to AMC's.. I am not impressed.

IF OLTL drops to a 1.7, I give you the next soap cancelled after ATWT. I do not see the show rebounding at all anymore.

    • Well, the whole Doug Cummings story was a bit of a reference to the Willows...(gothic, dead wife, crazy assistant, Dream's End vs. Willows.)  While I am glad he came over to ATWT, I would have loved what he could do with GL at the time.  Bea Reardon was still on the canvas but not used, so he could have brought Lisa Brown back as Nola...(though getting past the Quolas would have been hard as she should have come back alone..) and built the Reardon's back up..He would have loved writing for Alex, and maybe brought Mike back to rebuild the Bauers and also he would be on the spot to write Bert's death. He could have reignited Vanessa and woken her up from her "I'm a Lewis," coma and  I do wonder what he would have done with Reva?
    • Of all the triangles Rauch and Co. were into...I can't believe they never revisited Harley and Jarsh. Well, I know its because they have to have two women fighting over one man and one woman is evil, but would have been cool to have a no villain triangle...(and saved us from Gush...) And it would have driven the Java nuts and Pharley nuts crazy!!!
    • Totally agree. AL isn’t suited to Summer written this way (which is, truthfully, in character). HK wasn’t credible in the boss-bitch moments, which AL plays more easily.
    • Welcome back, Tripp

      I’m glad Tripp is back in Salem and I like that he’s planning on being more assertive. He doesn’t deserve to get hurt again. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if some people in the Soap Universe are gonna be mad about his lines today Hopefully, we get some scenes of Johnny/Tripp and Wendy/Chanel. There haven’t been that many lately and this storyline definitely needs them. I think weaving Talia into it would be a good idea as well. She needs a new man now that the Colin storyline is over.  Rafe is still dumb. There really are no security cameras at that hospital that could have shown that Colin didn’t take Abe?? Speaking of Abe, his storyline is total ff material. James Reynolds deserves so much better than this. 
    • I've been rewatching early SATC (am mid-season 2), and am enjoying the mid-90s indie film vibe of the show at that time. It was a bit tougher and grittier but it also showed some of the growing wealth of the city at that time. SATC was always about pecking order and jostling for a better position, but on the romantic frontlines. I also enjoyed the Bad Dating SLs LOL. I understand why it went the fairytale-ish route. Part of this mirrored the evolution of the city itself, as Manhattan became more moneyed and, dare I say, unaffordable. It was a glamorous city that many aspired to live in and conquer against the odds. Part of it was also, as the show progressed, our own growing investment in the main cast and their SLs. Hence less standalone episodes and more a continuing soapy story of romantic relationships. IMO, this was a fairly organic evolution.
