GH revolves around gimmicks which aren't half as clever as they think they are, and bored men degrading women. It's also very poorly written and staged, bad dialogue, bad acting, weak directing. I wish that the ratings falling on the week of their big baby switch start would tell them something.

I know the demos still aren't good enough for DAYS to stay around but I do hope they can turn it around. Unfortunately the Stefano shooting is all so lackluster, not sure if they will keep those viewers.

I wonder how CBS really feels about B&B's performance. 1.1 million less people watched B&B then YR. Maybe the international sales do well to make up for that but if I were a programmer B&B would be a red flag to me. In fact Id say B&B is doing worse than Both Days & GH

Just don't get the low ratings for GH. Two 1.6's

This show is the best on daytime right now and on FIYA.

I agree! GH was pretty good last week and this week. I like the way they are weaving some of OLTL's characters into GH.. At least GH increased in the key demo that the networks counts.

I'm glad dreadful Days got a little bump for Stefano's stunt death.. I watch Days out of pure loyalty. I'm not enjoying a single story or character on Days right now.

I don't get the logic. Why is there an expectation. B&B perform equal to Y&R? It never has. If that a the case AMC and OLtl were flops on ABC for years, underperforming GH for years in all categories.

It is the only soap to maintain consistency for the most part from week to week with gains from last year in every category. Why on earth would CBS consider that a flop? No soap is a whopping success but I'm not sure why the need by some to diminish what B&B has been able to accomplish with a fairly inexpensive younger cast.

The real red flag should be why has Y&R bled millions of viewers in the last few years.

That Too but I find it weird That B&B doesnt hold on to more of Y&R's audience? I wonder If Days gets a ratings bump in their last half hour?

It's been that way for years. If CBS is unhappy with this why wasn't B&B cancelled years ago. Why doesn't ABC cancel Private Practice because it doesn't hold it's lead or CBS cancel the Mentalist because it doesn't retain it's lead or how about every comedy ABC has put on after Modern family. Lead ins help but no one expects the entire audience to be retained it's a diff show. I can only recall a couple shows in recent years that went onto surpass it's strong leadin.TBBT on CBS surpassing Men for one.

    • Can't wait!! Seasons 8-10 is very high praise indeed!
    • @CatI feel like Tamra was the missing piece of the puzzle, but this is a good set up for her to return next year. It felt like classic RHOC like seasons 8-10. They gave you everything, but with the elevation that Heather brought when she first joined. Even Emily and Gina felt right. It felt like no time had passed. I didn't miss or even think about Kelly Dodd.
    • Just so, so ridiculous! I've always wondered if Andy is really not into Latinas, especially ones with slight accents like Adriana. Even though all of us watching can perfectly understand Adriana and enjoy her Brazilian telenovela flair. There is no reason Adriana couldn't be a mojito-holder, and Martina Navratilova's wife (I mean, God bless, because Martina is a straight-up ICON), who barely appears in the trailer, couldn't be a FOH. Marysol, too, is like a tentpole figure whose PR business united all the women in the OG RHOMi. ITA that Marysol seems a lot more entertaining than she was on the original series. Back then, Mama Elsa dominated and Marysol seemed a lot shyer, more passive and sensitive. Since her mother's death, I imagine Marysol has had to come to terms with that and come into her own fabulousness. I always found it interesting that Marysol, Alexia and Adriana had an understanding (las cubanas + la brasileira) to the detriment of other friendships.   Thanks for the glowing review! I will catch up on it. Does it feel like familiar OC? I feel like OC lost some of its familiar OC magic in the last few seasons, so I'm excited about Heather returning. Obviously if Tamra popped up, it would be phenomenal! I'm just so glad the toxic, exhausting Kelly Doddlezal is no longer on the show. I can't overstate how much she was ruining the show for me.
    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
