Gah, I forgot about it! It'd be nice if they released a DVD of it.

I'm not surprised by the top four in the least but I guess I didn't realize "Dark Shadows" was as big of a deal as it was. Perhaps because of the film this year they included it? That or I'm completely behind on my soap 101.

Anyone doubting that the Luke & Laura and Erica Kane shows wouldn't be #1 and 2 is cray cray. They have the most pop culture gravitas and always will. That damn hourglass comes in a distant third, I suppose.

Who was polled? I'm not so surprised by Dark Shadows, as mentioned it has a pretty large cult fanbase, and I wouldn't be surprised to have them come out and vote. As mentioned, the others still have probably the largest pop culture recognition--Luke and Laura, Erica Kane, Days in the 90s, and Y&R is a pretty recognized soapy name.

Oh, I guess they apparently asked tv writers, producers and actors to make top ten lists, and then people voted online--I wonder what the other five soap options were (I would guess GL, ATWT, B&B, OLTL and maybe some dumb choice like Passions). So I'm, not surprised at all about Dark Shadows making the top five--the fan club alone prob all voted. (not that I don't think it's deserving). At least I guess they didn't do what many other polls would do and add shows like Melrose and Dallas to the options.

You're mileage could vary, but I really don't think anyone would wanna rewatchit over and overon DVD. I mean ALF came in ahead of Miss Piggy as fave non human character? WTF? (and the fact they aired categories like that, but couldn't squeeze in the one minute soap option says a lot). Kermit did come in first though so maybe he split the Muppet vote.

    • Except it's kind of accurate? Yellowstone isn't at the risk of ending because ratings are bad - it's at the risk of ending because Kevin Costner is causing trouble with the shooting schedule, only wanting to do a week worths (6 days!!!) of shooting versus the 65 days that was agreed upon. So as of now they're exploring letting Costner go and bringing McConaughey in and labeling it a spin-off (but it's really just a continuation of Yellowstone).   We'll see what happens. My understanding is that it's not yet cancelled but it's likely to be and it'll basically be a Roseanne -> The Conners situation. Also, effectively labeling it a spin-off rather than season 6 or whatever of Yellowstone means that they can get the rights back from Peacock and put it on Paramount+. So the spin-off solves two problems - they get the show to their own streaming service while also getting rid of the expensive diva time-waster Costner.
