Nothing to brag about. Soon there will only be 4 soaps on air. I see they hit some new lows too.
Well, aren't even nuPTB saying just to ignore everything from now on in and wait until late Sept.? If even they are admitting there is more crap to come why not just scuttle the next few months and put on classic episodes. They can have a week or so for all the characters returning,or currently on. See Jack's past, John and Marlena's, show Bo and Hope's story, Adrienne and Justin's, people forget the who rape by Duke and her killing him and Justin, the cad, being sweet to her. That could fill the next couple of months.
Because they have paid the actors that are fired, they might as well show their work then they would just be (using my dads saying here) pissing away money.That being said and i know many don't like her but I think the drug storyline has some great acting and I enjoy it but I could do without just about everything else.
Well, it is "pissing away money" when the ratings are constantly at 1.7. By showing the classic stuff it will get back viewers and prepare viewers for the actors who are returning. And it is not like the CC fans are going to watch in a few months, so why bother pandering to them, when you will get many more fans watching to see when their characters were on and/or were written well.
Because its good acting, as a matter of fact it could be that the actors are contractually obligated to be in so many scenes so if they are already paid/not paid Days could screw up with contracts and get sued. Contrary to what everyone says online some people do like Taylor, some like Dario they want to see their actors, there already pissed enough about losing them, they are't going to stick around for being treated like crap. Right now Days is higher up than most soaps you can't expect them all to show classics until they say they'll "get better"
By hitting new lows, I fail to see how Days is higher up than most soaps.
It really is, I believe Days is number 4 right now. Above GH and AMC. You can check for yourself I think Diva has the ratings up.
I'm sorry click on the SON link for the ratings.
Ah, it is tied WITH THREE soaps for #4, which means it is IN LAST PLACE. Of course some people like whom you mentioned, they are still watching, but DAYS continued to lose viewers. But that does not negate the fact that the ratings are sad, that more fans each week stop watching. They may be contractually obligated, and they did do that, they were paid for that. They do not necessarily have to air those episodes. Because otherwise they would have to air every episode which (for whatever reason) was preempted.
And @Kate, I think fans of people like Matthew , Dee and Drake HAVE MORE OF A RIGHT TO BE ROYALLY PISSED OFF. These actors ACTUALLY HAVE MORE FANS, these actors gave decades to DAYS, but were treated like crap, for the likes of a bunch of neophytes who alienated HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF FANS -- and this is not hyperbole, you just look at the ratings now and in the past.
Excuse me but you realize your part of the problem right? Holy than thow fans who think they can treat new viewers badly. They are not tied for last place only in demos ratings from years ago across the board are higher it has nothing to do with anything but changing viewscape. I'm sorry but I've watched this show all my life but the level of entitlement y'all have is astounding.
You know the neophytes are still there right? Dee and Drake were sold out for Samuel ej rafe and yes Daniel who corday just loves. You know what enjoy your trip back to the 90's I for one give up I'm tired of being treated badly n every fanboard just because I don't fawn aoverveterans I love them to but it gets to a 0oibt that I get so tired of defending myself and yes plenty of new viewers have been treated like crap to...but who cares right, the older ones will come back. Well I hope they do but I can bet money that the vets wont be full time like Dee and Drake only for the summer
Being #4 is not good,especially considering soon there will only be 4 soaps on the air.
