See that is where people misinterpret ratings. Ratings have never been about quality. Not from the beginning of their creation. Some of the poorest quality shows have been at the top of the ratings pack from time to time - in primetime and daytime.

Do you think ATWT which was #1 in ratings for 20 years was top notch in quality all that time. No they weren't. Shows like Love of Life esp. were top notch in quality at times esp. under Labine/Mayer, but their ratings were never that great.

Where the Heart Is was always a good quality show but never had outstanding ratings.

People keep comparing quality and ratings but they are two totally different things. Ratings were never designed to judge quality - that is left to the critics.
