No, I always figured the final four would be B&B and Y&R on CBS, and GH and AMC on ABC, with NBC out of the soap race entirely.  (Remember, this was back when Jeff Zucker was still in charge at the Peacock network, and he seemed DETERMINED to make NBC Daytime one long "Today" block).  OLTL was never in anyone's "final four."  Even when that show had its' highest ratings during the late '70's and early '80's, it still was seen as ABCD's red-headed stepchild, a placeholder between AMC and GH.  Which is why AMC's cancellation, rather than OLTL's, took literally everyone by surprise.

Oh yes jeff "days wont live past 2009" Zucker.

Some seem to think days will not get renewed next year but i think it will be fine for atleast this year.  

 

This is an unpopular opinion, to be sure, but I really believe DAYS would be better off gone.  NBCUniversal/Comcast has slashed the budget so much -- and you know that if it is renewed, they'll just slash it even more.  Hope DAYS fans love the Blue Room, because it will be the only set you will ever see.  The ONLY set.  And they won't even bother redecorating for each new scene anymore.  You'll just have to take the show's word for it that you're in a completely different location.

I guess I understand why it never happened while the shows were positioned better---the shows actually cared about continuity, the scheduling, and PITA-ness of it all....and the "crossover event" wasn't a thing yet. But YEAH, it would've been LIT to have any sort of interaction between the shows. 

 

Well, I've always assumed that one reason why ATWT and GL never had crossover events was due to the fact that the shows didn't run back-to-back in all major markets.  That was especially true when CAPITOL was on the air, and maybe even SFT before then.

As bad as Days looks. It's still looks better than Peapack era GL. Even though i'm sick of the same couple of sets. Days reminds me of pre Peapack GL. HTS is the Main Street of Salem/Days. But i do think somewhere down the line it will look as bad. At least ATWT never looked as bad as either Days or GL. During it's rough last yrs on the air.

GL made me so sad. Filming with cam corders in 7/11s

But it was getting there.  Bob and Kim's house was gone, and Tom and Margo's had been reduced to a broom closet.

As awful as the film quality was, it still had more heart to me and felt more like the show again.

Totally disagree. I watch a few DAYS per year. Maybe 20. I certainly find them stupid, but I also find them comforting. It's not hurting anybody by being on. Though if we could get a choice between reruns and new episodes, I'd choose reruns in a second.

I think you need to make your pronouns clearer here.

Nothing -- and I mean nothing -- will ever be as bad as Peapack.

If ATWT was still on today what do you think the show would look like. And how would the ratings be?

ATWT might look as bad as Days or worse. It might look as good as Y&R. They would most likely be low rated. Someone like Jelly or Dena Higley writing trash.

I was talking about GL, which was the show that was mentioned for having bad camera work. Sorry if you were confused.
