Yay for a full week over 3 mill for Days. I'm frankly surprised they are still ahead of GH though with all the Franco hype even if he didn't start airing until today (or yesterday).
These ratings were effective through Nov. 13, and James Franco debuted on the 20th. I don't know if GH will overtake Days and B&B to go into second place, but so far James' character has been flat-out strange.

lol, sungrey, while michael was not pleased about the writing for jack. In interviews austin peck has done, he has always raved and praised the writers/writing, even when he did an interview with that roger dude, his character had died, at that point, he went on, about, the writing/writers. Maybe that was their beef with each other. Michael comments about how it was nothing he wanted, and it wasn't his (michael) fault,and he wanted austin to know that im only guessing, about brad dying. Since now michael has a meaty storyline, and we all know what brad has. That been said, Somehow this ghost brad, katie, has been fantastic, despite, everything austin, been displaying, some great acting along with colombino. Fan's have been loving it. I agree with you a 100 % hunterF. If it looks like duck, walks like a duck its a duck.
Ha ha... you're right there. The only thing I've heard Michael bitch about over the years (and no, I don't know him personally... lol) is that he and Maura West love working together and they're not as interesting to watch apart as they are when they're united. Suffice to say if he wanted a healthy storyline... he's got it now!

The dick of Days? (rolls over laughing hysterically)

Soaps.com reports Carly's daughter is Melanie

I buy it.

It makes more sense story-wise for it to be Melanie considering who she interacts with. They laid it on too thick that it was Mia and, looking back on it, Crystal played those scenes in a way that was not in any way suggestive of her knowing Mia is her daughter.

I bet we learn who it is in one of the episodes immediately after New Year's, which is why Crystal said they hadn't gotten to it yet while taping the New Year's shows.
Nice classic bait and switch, Days. The show lays it on thick making you believe someone's the daughter when it's actually someone else on the canvas.

Me like this move!!! :D

Oh, I wasn't implying you thought Michael was a jerk. :)
You never hear anything bad come out of the guy's mouth, unless maybe it's to badmouth the writing a little bit or complain about how sanctimonious Jack can be. So that's why this was such a surprise.

I think its joshua marrow lol or ronn moss, didn't that rick guy have an affair, and that's why he and his wife separated, he later whined in an interview that he was so young when he and arianne met, and how the soap digest looked after him. GUESS because they didn't report on it must. Oh the michael/ austin bits sound tasty. You mean michael couldn't tell austin himself that he had nothing to do with brad been written out? Its funny how he claims peck wasn't fired, and in the same breath, talks about the shooting being done because brad was leaving, no doubt in my mind that he wanted peck gone. Park sounds like he writes for the show. Colomubio and Park being buddy buddy why is Park not P.O at Terri that she was sexing up his rival. I know I would be. Terri 11 years "Jessica Simpson of daytime tv " not know that getting with a co-star with cause him to loose his job? especially on As The World Turns, given their history on firing all the men involved in affairs on that set. Can we say dumb.
From all indications I've heard, Michael Park's one of the nicest guys on ATWT. It would take an awful lot to set him off...

Just for you guys, I'll give Melanie another chance. I wish she was consistent, but to her credit she does have pretty inconsistent writing. I like her with Mark Hapka and Suzanne Rogers.
Amen. Molly Burnett can be an appealing actress when handed the right material.

Dude, he's responsible for killing Stuart! Nuff said.
Is there ANY way... any at all... they can reverse that fiasco???

And I've been a Bob Guza fan for a long time, but I understand how polarizing he can be. Hell, that's another thread entirely.

ATWT: Meredith Hagner Out!
She's had nighttime producers and directors knocking at her door. She's gonna end up on a prime time show, guaranteed. Rumor is they are recasting Liberty, though...

I wonder if this one is referring to Maura West/Cady McClain. He says Brooklyn, so it has to be someone from ATWT.
This could be Marie Wilson and someone else. Isn't Marie rumored to be leaving the show?

I kind of echo Phoenix's comments, too... if you killed Mickey, you'd have to address Bill, Tommy (some of us haven't forgotten Tommy... lol), Marie, Alice, Jennifer, Sarah, Melissa... and I just don't think the show is in the right frame of mind to do this justice. We'll see, I guess. :)

Killing Mickey would be another safe death, like Shawn's was last year. Give some emotional stuff, have something permanent happen, but don't really disrupt anything or upset people all that much. It'd be kind of a smart move, imho. And I think it would kind of cement Maggie in her role, if all she had in her life are all the strays she's picked up.

I'd love to see what Rogers could do with that.
Except they went off course with that storyline. I'd love to know if the original plan involved uniting Victor with Caroline, a story I would have LOOOOVED to see. Instead, what we got was nothing. I know Frank Parker wasn't in the best of health, but it turned out to be a pointless death.

I know Suzanne can knock these scenes outta the park, but part of me wishes they would leave well enough alone.
I disagree that it was a pointless death if only because it had so much to do with the Emmy recognition Days got last year.
I should clarify... at the time it was good. I agree, Days got lots of Emmy recognition. We really haven't had any fallout or movement since then.

I'm torn. If that's what it is I'd consider it:

1. A slap in the face to the 44-year history of the show, but...
2. John Clarke's not playing Mickey, so it wouldn't have as much resonance.

That year was miserable for Cruz and Eden... and Justin Deas was marvelous as Keith. God, Santa Barbara was SUCH a good soap!

Why not Jaleel White?!
I can honestly see it now. Jaleel White on Y&R. His character shoots Victor.

He turns to the camera... all together now...

I'm also on CC fatigue. I get it....She's beautiful.

Live or on photos, Lisa LoCicero can't register a single emotion on her face. It's always the same damn look.
And your point is? lol

Still fits Nelson's criteria. She could take me to Bensonhurst anytime.

So far this story is boring and I don't really like it. I'm not the only one who thinks this alot of other people do too.
I'm not sure if it's because of the writing or because Crystal Chappell just isn't committing to it 100%, but something is definitely off. I think alot of it has to do with the contrived situation (with Bope) and the shrewish writing of Hope. Whatever the case, I'm ready for Vivian to come in and really raise hell.
I think it's a bit of both. I don't think Chris Whitesell is a strong enough writer to pull this off, for one thing... and we're still seeing CC's early performances. I back Bope all the way, but if it's a good story I'll get behind it (and the character mix certainly sounds very interesting!)...

'The Jay Leno Show' Is Taking NBC Down
The other option that's been mentioned is making it a half-hour and keeping it five nights a week. Personally I'd like to see it go down to less than five... NBC's finding out trying to save money isn't playing well with the affiliates OR the audience.
