Oh I think Charlie is a dead man walking. He is going to be a casualty of Sheila's (not directly). I'm calling it.

 

Yes, please! Gomer Pyle is a horrible character. 

 

If it's true KB signed a year contract, they really have to keep the character in check - to a certain extent. Unlike Quinn, who had Count WyNot and Deacon, during her reign of terror, ShEvil has no one on canvas who cares, likes or trusts her. 

 

Knowing B&B's structure, we'll see:

 

Bad Santa boots Quinn who turns to Widge

BS rekindles with ShEvil, while Quinn tries to win him back 

Widge finds his muse again in C2 until he senses trouble with Brill - probably over H8ie and Ct WyNot or something equally weak - just because

Another boring episode.....Sheila was only brought back to pimp the awful Quinn/Ridge story. No one was interested in it so he brings in Sheila but it still sucks and her return is a big failure!

Basically all the H8ie scripts were handed over to ShEvil. The only difference is that it took less than 5 episodes from ShEvil suspecting to telling Bad Santa. 

 

ITA - instead of Quidge being taboo and hot, the past 3 months (since Oz) have reduced to Quinn being a passive nervous ninny that needs a man to solve the situation.

 

Theory: Remember when Quinn was a strong independent woman who took action? Yeah, she was kidnapped on way to MC last year and was replaced by a doppelgänger - who'll we'll discover is really Donna. Because no one plays victim better than a Logan and all 4 Logan women have it bad for Bad Santa burnt Yule log.

Seriously why are the Forresters still allowing Sheila in their house? This is ridiculous!

It is so stupid.  I didn't watch yesterday and I'll rewind and watch later - but I heard part of it...Sheila all up in their house - why would anyone trust her or have her around even???  Stupid.  And Eric - yes, let's talk about this all now (with Sheila there...????)  LOL.

it's so beyond ridiculous for anyone to give Sheila the time of day, but bring back one overrated overused wacko to make the pet wacko look sane and gain sympathy for her.  

 

Eric will soon marry Sheila and not even Eric should be this damn stupid after all Sheila has done.  But then again, he married Quinn after her wacko chit.  

Bold remains trash!

WRONG. I'm loving Sheila this time around, she's not being written as OTT like she was the last few times on B&B and YR. I just LMAO at Eric, cause I can't feel one bit sorry for him.

 

Faux Dolla Bill & TSFTV are so damn BORING zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I think we should rename June/July thread - let's face it - it's going to be the same three stories - Swimsuits in MC; Quidge/Bad Santa/ShEvil; and GayJ/CoCoPuffs (redux of Marcus texting PSA). 

 

KB is still amazing. The Quidge reveal was disappointing to say the least. And how could Brooke not tell her latest destiny/roughrider the truth about something so significant? C'mon - any man would want to know why he suddenly got in game 5 minutes after she cancelling wedding to her UberDestiny?

They are so boring and NOT needed. Why is Cocopuffs still in the cast? Neither has anyone to interact with....they are two dull characters

Quidge/Bad Santa/ShEvil;

The storyline is awful to begin with and to top it off all of LA knows and it's Sheila who spills the beans.

I haven't seen one eppy with Sheila yet and I honestly don't care.

 

 

You're not missing much. 

 

I haven't seen the last two episodes.

 

Sheila should be on Y&R instead and revealing to Lauren that her dull son Scotty is an imposter.

With Sheila's return I had put the show back on the DVR but have since taken it back off. Zzzzz

 

I agree Sheila should be on Y&R. I know some are tired of her but I think Y&R could use the shakeup and a bit of excitement. Lauren sure isn't doing anything. The actor playing Scott is as dull and boring as they come ... and they could make Tessa her kid. I think she has a lot more options on Y&R. She could bounce back and forth I suppose ...

Sheila is coming across as a less crazy Katie. Her return has been a big waste

I'm not surprised it's been a big waste. Shame. I think Brad wanted her back and made it happen but then didn't have any plans really past the reveal. Which seems typical of him. I think it's time Brad hand the reigns over but he won't.

    • Hope you can add some more. My next contribution is Dear John on NBC. In the 1998/89 season it took Night Court's 9.30 pm Thurs slot following Cheers. Cheers was # 4 and Dear John a respectable #11. In it's 2nd season it kept the 9.30 pm slot till mid season when it was replaced by Grand. I believe NBC was under pressure from Carsey/Werner productions to place their new show in that plum slot (they supplied Cosby and A Different World) Dear John got moved to Wed 9.30 following Night Court. It finished #17 for the season but that average was bumped up from the Thurs showings. In 90/91 it retained the 9.30pm Wed slot but now followed a new show Fanelli Boys. Wed 9-10 Wk 1 1990/91 season ABC Doogie Howser #8 CBS Jake and the Fatman # 25 NBC fanelli Boys #42/Dear John # 52  Fanelli flopped and NBC moved Dear John to 9pm. By Jan 1990 Night Court was back to 9pm and Dear John was back to 9.30 before being shunted to 10.30 Saturday. It's overall ranking was #50 For it's final season it was given the 9pm Fri timeslot but was moved to 9.30 . It ranked #77. So it only worked with a strong lead in - timeslot hit.

Wheels NBC (R) 10.0/18   NBC showing the most mini series for the least return.  The Innocent and The Damned was a new title for Aspen. Maybe they thought people would be fooled into watching a rerun. The Wheels rerun was truncated due to dreadful ratings. Originally all 5 episodes were going to be shown, but after dire ratings for ep 1 and 2, they showed a summary of eps 3&4 before playing the final episode.
    • I agree. With that in mind, I think we've pinpointed a good amount of 1980s and 1990s time slot hits.
    • Bit hard to play that when Paul has been gone for years, but yes beforehand their connection was downplayed. With Paul isolated because of LLB's absence they could have easily played up a lonely Paul leaning on Lauren. Write in some issues that would cause friction b/w Lauren and Micheal and bingo! Paul and Lauren could be tempted. Yes that relationship should have remained stronger over the years.
    • To my way of thinking a show can only be classified as a timeslot hit if it is moved out of a timeslot it is rating well in, and doesn't perform as expected/hoped for in the new timeslot. That discounts a lot of shows that get moved at the end of their lifespan. I would put Hotel in that category along with other examples like Falcon Crest and Trapper John, which after several successful seasons were falling in the ratings and basically moved elsewhere to finish their runs. Had Hotel been moved in Season 3 and bombed then its status as a timeslot hit would be proven. Looking forward to your response!
