  1. Karen I love the rumor about Johnny & Carly! The only thing I don't like, is that it will hurt Carly & Olivia's frienship which I like. Carly needs a friend & Olivia is a great pick.

    I am also happy to read about Liason having some contact. I am used to Jasam now and even though hard to watch at times I can get past it. I just want the past honored.

  2. It's hard to argue ABC's plan of action in promoting the Dante reveal even though it ruined the ending for most of us. The numbers speak for themselves.

  3. I simply cannot understand why OLTL has such low ratings. Don't get it at all. Umm, could it be this show takes chances and pay off in excellent storytelling, acting, and all around great cast and crew...Absolutely love this show, this is what great Soap Opera is all about.

    Guess the "raters" love boring predictable shows, such as AMC and GH. 'Nuff said

  4. I'm wondering if the ratings have something to do with the time slot? Like people can relax and have a late lunch on the east coast and watch AMC, and for GH the high schools are done for the day, but for OLTL lunchtime is over and high schoolers are not home yet? I don't know- I'm grasping, because OLTL rocks!

  5. mosbp2003--- I agree with you about the ratings and the time slots. If GH and OLTL switched places OLTL would be ahead in the ratings.

  6. I've always said that the 3pm slot is the best. BUT, if you look at Y&R they are on at 12:30? Hmmmm.
    And Frank, they aren't THAT great but I love that they knocked the Franco sheeze to the wall! LOL

  7. I HATE OLTL! It is boring. I think the majority agree with me.

  8. I great up watching all 3 soaps, and OLTL is the only one I canturn on and feel like I can get sucked right back in. AMC does nothing for me. GH however, has been "my" show for decades. Has nothing to do with the time slot. I do know my little cousin said tons of kids college watch amc on lunch. Even guys get sucked in. Not sure why..

    As for the Carly & Johnny rumor, I'm game. Loved how Carly was good to olivia this week. That was so NOT expected. I wish we would have had Maxie w/ Lulu. heck if they had Ethan spend time w/ her, why not her BFF? I am also ready for maxie to move on from Spin. They bore me and I no longer am a fan of bradfords Spin. It got old, and him having no conscience and being a lap dog to Jason when Sam isn't around got disgusting.

    I thought Sam stealing the gun was STUPID. Kemo did a good job but come on, they finally have something on the towns biggest criminal and they don't watch over it more carefully?

  9. Anonymous, have you watched OLTL lately? And clearly you are not in the majority- at least on this board...

  10. OLTL boring? Crazy paternity story, corrupt police and politicians, and one of the best soap villains ever claiming God speaks to him and sent him the chosen one... their teens don't even annoy me like other shows' do. I respect everyone's opinions, but wow, must take a lot to impress you if think this show is boring!

  11. I was an OLTL watcher for a long time and stopped for reasons I can't remember. I just started again, about a month ago and I am loving it. The characters are great and who doesn't love Dorian?!?
    I also have always loved John and Natalie together, so I am happy they might get back together.
    They also have such great characters such as Mitch, Todd, Stacy, Kim...people that you want to see what they will do next. And they don't need the mob to create a good storyline!
