I agree with her. The American TV audience has to have not only the worst taste ever, but the dumbest taste. How many talk shows can one person watch? If you watch The View, why would you want to watch these people talk? For that matter, why would you want to watch the View? :P

There is nothing these people ever say that has the slightest bit of intelligence or honesty. Sharon Osborne is not qualified to offer cogent analysis on any topic not covered by People Magazine. She has nothing to say, just like that brain dead Shepard woman on The View. Women do themselves a disservice watching this tripe.

Although she was never one of my favorite ATWT actors or characters, except during the Douglas Cummings & Sabrina storylines, I always got the sense that she was a down-to-earth person. This interview confirms it. she is so right about those other shows not having a "soul" -- that's what makes soaps great -- especially when you witness the evolution of a character over years (decades), but it usually happens a little everyday or week or month -- other forms of storytelling can't do that. Just watch a primetime serial's episodes back to back as evidence of that.

      You apparently haven't read the 70s ratings archive thread.

    • My guess is that ABC ended up getting younger viewers (high school and college aged) that didn't want to watch soaps that their parents watched (which were P & G).
    • Late 1970s was ABC huge rise and P&G shows tanked. Did viewers suddenly switch over from P&G to ABC, or did ABC get a whole bunch of new viewers? Y&R was going strong in the late 1970s but would stumble in 1980 after expanding to one hour and changing time slots.
    • Agnes Nixon saved Another World from being canceled in the late 1960s and it rose to No. 2 in the ratings defeating General Hospital in the time slot.   When ABC saw what Agnes Nixon did with AW and what happened to GH, ABC approached Nixon to create a soap for ABC....One Life to Live debuted in January 1968 and Nixon finished up her headwriting duties at AW.  Then based on OLTL's performance, ABC wanted another soap. Agnes presented All My Children to ABC and the rest is history.   AW was near the top of the ratings from the late 1960s until its collapse in 1979 with GH's giant rise.
