I am not sure if this has been posted here yet, if it has please forgive me but I don't think it has, because this appears to have not been brought up yet, but this quote from the NY Times just troubles me.

Courtesy Faulkner at SON:

Daytime shows would suffer next. Soap operas like “The Young and the Restless,” viewed by some six million people a day, typically have a monthlong backlog of episodes. Because of their serial nature, soap operas do not perform well in repeats. Networks say they would try to maintain ratings during the day in the event of a strike by substituting more news and sports programming. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/20/arts/tel...ion/20cons.html
