^o) YA DOOL is so good,I mean the ratings show how wonderful it really is :huh:,give me a break,no wonder I don't read the sh** no more.

Good ratings don't necessarily reflect that the show is good IMO.
I've loved a lot of critically acclaimed, well written shows that have been canceled due to poor ratings.

Just a few off the top of my head:
Primetime: Homefront, My So Called Life, Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, Picket Fences, Cane, Bostonm Public
Daytime: Santa Barbara, Another World.

Exactly. People need to stop using the ratings as a benchmark for what is good and what isn't. Daytime or primetime makes no difference. There are plenty of good shows that end up at the bottom of the barrel because alot of fans nowadays prefer action and events rather then solid, quality, character-driven stuff. Look no further then the daytime ratings. Solid, character-driven drama gives you nothing but if you blow something up or kill someone off or something you get ratings. It's sad but the ratings system is a system driven by gimmicks and events now.
