The Suds Report 4/23/10

Back when I worked at Soap Opera Weekly and Soap Opera Update, we in the press never understood why Y&R was No. 1 in the ratings. Yes, we respected the show during the Bill Bell years but we never got its appeal and were less than passionate about the show and its traditional stories.

This is one reason the soap mags are in trouble, they are out of touch with the audience.

After Smith worked his magic on Y&R, I remember former Soap Opera Weekly editor Mimi Torchin calling me to say, “Wow, Y&R is the s***.

I can't for the life of me picture Mimi Torchin saying this.

That was a rather pointless article.

Poor Nelso, getting his hopes about about VM returning to GH...You know she'll never be back. And if she is, I'm sure she would demand so much money they'd have to fire everyone else and she'd only be in seens with herself.

Neither can I. It's like MT is far too classy to call anything "the s**t." That's like if ATWT's Helen Wagner (Nancy) were to say, "Drop it like it's hot!" or "Shake it like a Polaroid picture!"

What's he even refering to--or should I ask? :unsure: It's like he just rambles off stuff so he'll have "news"

• Kreizman and Swajeski promise a big front-burner storyline for Angie and Jesse next month. Look for their work to debut on May 12. Question: So why is the new head-writing team currently commenting on interim scribe Lorraine Broderick’s stories in all the magazines? Why isn’t AMC allowing Broderick to talk to the press?

And why is he even writing about soaps--he claimed he couldn't watch One Life in ages, because he doesn't wanna see the Kish exit, he also claims he's behind in GH because he doesn't wanna see nunuMichael--nelson has complained before about how he's so behind in his shows. Ummm... Isn't this his JOB??

As for the Y&R thing, in the same paragraphhe admits he never really liked Bill Bell's writing (!) and then claims he still wants Maria Bell in charge cuz he wants a Bell there. Umm these's logic here, cuz? :blink: (and the same article has him complaining about Bradley Bell)
