On the flip side, if they spoil everything, why watch?

Damned if they do, damned if they don't.  Such a shame.

That doesn't apply to DAYS at all... no one is asking them to reveal entire SL but reveal something interesting to make people watch.

Hmm...two weddings. Two big events. One in which something dramatic happens. The other that may have major complications due to the bride's infidelity. How is that not enough for a sweeps period? Sounds pretty gripping to me.

I know people are down on the show but giving out any more detail not only would dilute whatever they are planning but would also ruin the dramatic impact. That is why John's death, I feel, worked on so many levels. Not just because of the heartbreak over losing a beloved character but also because it blindsided many and it was spoiled detail by detail in the mags. It gave fans less time to prepare so it was edge of your seat. That is what I want for sweeps and that is what I thought we all wanted.

When GH does their stunts, do they ever mention anymore then what Days did here? It's always vague. Y&R didn't mention a single detailed thing about the stunt they are pulling this week. Yes, they are higher rated but, using the argument presented here, wouldn't they want to spoil more to get higher ratings? If that is the case, why don't they? Simple. They feel spoiling too much dilutes story and then you get people who don't watch because they know what is coming and don't like it or they feel like they shouldn't bother.

I wish Days just didn't release anything. It's just not worth it anymore.
