It amazes me how close DAYS and GH are in the ratings, yet I still feel as if GH's production values are still more costly than DAYS

I’ve noticed that too. Not that GH looks wonderful, but they seem to make a whole lot more out of less.

Regarding the Thursday, 7/26/2018 episode, I thought Laura Wright's performance was really good.  The character of Carly is usually not a victim, so it was nice to see that side of her acting.  I hated that Lucas wasn't in the scenes where the new baby was introduced to only one of the adoptive parents.  Lastly, do you mean to tell me that they are going to try to make Franco Carly's possible rescuer and her salvation?  Cut me a break.

Franko is everyone's savior. He can change loaves and fish into a feast and water into wine.  No one cares that he had Michael raped in prison, kidnapped Elizabeth's child. ?ValenVarni tell us so.

 

Julian is also a hero. Who cares that he put a knife to his wife's throat?

 

Nina just kidnapped Peter, but she's just misunderstood.

 

Angsty, pathetic Finn is a serious romantic leading man.

 

Doe eyed, dumb as a box of hair Kiki is on the fast track from student nurse to surgeon.

 

All five could be written out and not missed in a day, but FV continues to put them front and center.

I’m assuming you’d get rid of Carly, Sonny, Jason, Anna, Ava, Julian, Maxie, Alexis, Franco, Drew, Nina, Valentin, and their kids, which they’d have to do make room/budget for the influx.

 

I dunno. In an ideal world, that’d sound good to me because most of the above characters are either horrid or played out. But I think ABC would cancel the show instead of doing a drastic reset.

I forgot Finn. The show has a TON of dead weight, so if they wanted to drop some of it, there are plenty of places to make cuts. I’m sure they have some data that Maurice and Steve are draws, so they are unlikely to give them up. But they don’t even have to touch them to dramatically change GH.

I'd pare down starting with the five I mentioned.   Drew will have less sreen time with BM signing to recur on a new show. Kim could have easily been Sarah, JDP Jeff, and Anthony Montgomery should have been Tom, Jr.    Carly has Spencer roots, and Ava has the potential to be a more usable character.  As for Sonny/Jason, I could take or leave either. The bulk of the budget could be made up by letting the Staff, Devry, Easton and Howarth. All of their contracts cost us former cast members. Howarth and Devry were gone, as was Easton until Valenvarni re-negotiated withthem, or just brought them back. While Julian was in prison and Franko was in "NYC" dealing with victim's families, were ether missed?

    • I was out exercising this morning, and my thoughts kept circling back to Victor and Nikki, and I realized I still have nagging questions...  (only on a soap forum could people understand that I would be out exercising and thinking of vintage '90s Young and the Restless  Please register in order to view this content) I recently watched summer '96. Nikki was vulnerable with Victor and made it clear she was open to a reconciliation. IMO he seemed totally disinterested. Like, he had moved on from that chapter in his life. Hope straight-up asks Victor if he will remarry Nikki, and he replies, "I don't see that happening" So I guess my question is - when does Victor re-discover his love for Nikki? Is it before Nikki is shot, or is it because Nikki is shot and on death's door?
    • @victoria foxton, do you know these guys? I’m addicted to this song (although it came out last year… just discovering it now):  
    • Back in '98-'99 various corporate entities approached P&G (not PGP or Televest) about buying AW or buying into AW or buying the right to re-broadcast vintage AW. FOX TV wanted a daytime lineup of their own & thought starting with what was then current AW would have been great. ABC & Angela Shapiro wanted her good friend Linda Dano & her character Felicia Gallant. The entity that became Viacom wanted something, details unknown. The entity that is now Paramount wanted something, details unknown. What is now Sony but was then, I think, Columbia Tri-Star (and SoapCity), wanted to do some kind of partnership. P&G predictably, I might add, sent them all packing. As a fan activist in favor of AW having some kind of future, at that time, all of that from the pages of the Business section and/or Variety & Advertising Age, was very disheartening because it was basically the other shoe dropping. No other eventualities existed beside cancellation. Now, all that said, and I'm sorry if you've been over all of this ground & it is tedious covering all the dam*ed history, all I want to know is if Collen's alleged information is about *current* destruction of materials or if it somehow is about the historical wiping or taping over that is already known. To me that is what is key. It would be easy for someone to hear about the historical practice & mistake it for new activity. The last information I have on this subject is that *CURRENT* P&G (or PGP or Televest) has 5 soaps "in warehouse" (whatever that means) & that 5 different streaming services have contacted them specifically wanting to buy outright or license to stream vintage P&G soaps & that P&G had replied, "We are no longer in the soap opera business." That dovetails perfectly with my personal appraisal that P&G values its stuff too much to sell or rent, but not enough to invest in a future for it themselves. I am personally suspicious of the above being about *5 soaps" & about "5 corporations". What's up with the number 5?! Could just be being cynical. Oh, yes, but if it is 5 in storage, I believe that is AW, ATWT, GL, SFT & I don't know the last.)
    • It seems like DAYS got more media coverage back in 2019 when they released all the actors. It will be interesting to see if there are renewal talks, how they will go. Will they actually be doing most of the negotiations before episodes made especially for Peacock even air? If they get renewed, the first thing to go has to be 5 sixty minute episodes per week. There's no point now.
    • Thank you! It's nice be heard without being shot down! This is why an Edge of Night reboot could work right now! There's a show that could rock the arc based story format!
