I still think most of DAYS' problem lies in the fact they shoot so far in advance, they can't react to negative public reaction to stories they're doing and so they linger on these dud story arcs for WAY too long, then react with breakneck speed to correct it and we get messes like the website storyline which concluded in a single episode and was filled with clips that had never aired before. They really need to slow down the pace of shooting, especially if they want to survive the next year.

I think that's part of it but it's more than that. I think a lot of it is how exhausted some of the characters are that they seem to think they need to constantly focus on. I can accept certain characters are more popular and generate buzz but even with that, audience fatigue plays a part. And who they focus on And what they focus on constantly hasn't really shifted even with the writing and production changes.

Wow OLTL was doing really good this time last year, if GH is beating that then they should be safe for the time being.

DAYS... eh I really don't them being last place matters with there only being 4 soaps. I don't see NBC getting rid of it if it's cheap and the only hour they have in the afternoon. But honestly it's so boring I don't care either way. I am not even excited about Eileen Davidson anymore judging from how TomSell have done so far.

I still Miss MarDar the show was much exciting. But I do see promise in Days. I agree with the statements about fatigue. So true on Sami, Rafe and EJ. But I do like all the character interactions 'Ive been seeing. At this point I dont know what could if anything at all can save Days.

Y&R while still weird is still entertainig to me I don't know why. I've really enjoyed Phyllis the last few weeks.I also love the music cues they use.

    • Kenny mentioned how quickly they all got sick and died. How about Kayla? She was doing her rounds and they wanted to do blood work. She resisted saying she was fine but finally agreed. A few moments later she's told her numbers had dropped. She's like I'm fine and boom she collapsed. Please register in order to view this content  
    • Miami Vice weakened Falcon Crest in 1985/86 and if NBC left Miami Vice at Friday 10 pm in 1986/87 it might have finished off Falcon Crest. Miami Vice may have been the new hotness, but they still got beat by Murder, She Wrote. It will never not be funny to me that Miami Vice was clean swept by Murder, She Wrote (in weeks where new episodes of both shows were broadcast, Murder, She Wrote finished ahead of Miami Vice in all those weeks). Angela Lansbury referred to Miami Vice as Miami Heat in a 1985 Los Angeles Times interview. It might have been an accident or she might have been throwing shade but in an elegant and classy way though. 
    • I uploaded this episode. I wondered why there were missing scenes. When you scroll at the timeline you see all scenes, but when you watch the video, the end is black for 6 minutes.   i hope they upload it full again.

    • Team Thomas, but getting full custody of Douglas is a LONG shot.  This simply comes down to what Douglas wants.  Poor kid, torn between his parents.
