Speaking of viewership, this is a nice, positive lil nugget from the Sony email leaks...

> However, probably the unsung heroes of DVR benefit are Sony’s two daytime dramas, DAYS OF OUR LIVES and THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Both program’s have seen a very steady and consistent rise in DVR lift since Nielsen started measuring DVR’s back in 2005. DAYS OF OUR LIVES currently has a lift of around 80% beyond live viewing among women 18-54, while THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has a lift north of 50% (see chart below for historical growth). Most importantly this DVR playback has allowed for the total audience consumption of the program to remain steady across last 10 years. For instance THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS was averaging 5.3M total viewers in 2004-2005 season, the season prior Nielsen incorporated DVR’s into their sample, and in its current 2013-2014 season it also averages 5.3M total viewers within the Live+7 day metric.

I'm surprised Y&R went up as much as it did, the show is all over the place, but I digress I'm still watching.

... No doubt B&B went up due to Y&R's lead in. Aside from that, and not sure the consensus around here on Maya's story, but the show has been up 3 weeks in a row after the Myron reveal, so think it's safe to say the storyline is working, or at least not chasing viewers away??

What happened on Tuesday for the high numbers for Y&R? Glad to see Days go up. Those 1.4's and 1.5s were dreadful.

And GH down again! Thats 4 of the last 5 weeks they have been down.whistling.jpg And this weeks episodes were very boring.

GH

Friday: 1.93/2,607,000

SS, I knew you'd enjoy GH tanking once again!,

smile.png Yup..truly deserved ….The whole Fluke story was a complete bust and now they have nothing left. Michael being drugged is so stupid…..Criminal Franco getting shares of ELQ…ummm…more horrible writing…of course Ron has to pimp his favorites. The Jason story has dragged and no one cares……scenes happening off screen still….more of that brat Spencer….all this and more equals tanking ratings for GH.

Yes GH is not really that great to me at the moment! I agree the Fluke story was a bust. However I did kind of like the recreation flashback episode that explained Luke's childhood. On some levels is was nicely written and done. I do think the whole Fluke thing was really a bad idea. I'm not really sure that it explained Luke's odd behavior and all his despicable actions. It would have been better if a villain from the past was truly behind it all and took us on a real location filled adventure treat which would've been true to GH's heyday. I think the Jake storyline has dragged on way too long and by now the reveal that he is Jason should've happen. So many people are affected! He should have been experiencing multiple fm empty flashes even when he first landed in Port Charles after recovering from his accident. Sam and Jason need to reunite. Druggin Michael story I don't like and I think as he embraces his Quartermaine roots, that re-establishing the Q family should be a priority and stop always making them as a joke. Tracy and Monica are there, recast Ned with original portrayer, invest more in Michael, bring back Dillon, Brooklyn, Cecilia' Jimmy Holt, and somehow Alexandra lol...but I would love to see the Q's, and for once put romance back into the show. Michael needs a real solid and grand love story with a viable female...something that involves location and adventure that involves ELQ. Brooklyn should be brought back and have a rivalry like how Monica and Leslie had back in the day. Maybe Brooklyn and the newest spencer can be rivals or bring back Sarah Webber and Brooklyn and Sarah can be rivals vying over the same man. There is story to be developed and written.

I'm quite tired of Morgan and Kiki, however I'm not opposed to the, starting back with each other and think given real quality of storytelling could be a great couple themselves.

I'm actually quite tired of Franco and think that his character could go. It's time to put GH back to GH and that means going back and looking at the last and what really captivated our hearts and mines. What's on screen today is not doing that by any stretch of the imagination.
