Today's audiences are different from the 70s. The bar has been raised. Maybe the bad dialogue on OLTL wouldn't stand out to me so much if they had the caliber of actors to deliver the lines in a way that didn't seem uncomfortable.

People demand more quality and soaps don't want to step up their games to deliver it which is why their audiences are declining. There are more options today than in the 70s. If you didn't like one soap, you turned the channel to another or turned off the TV. Not many options. Well, now you can turn the channel and find anything you want or pop in a DVD or turn off the TV and go surf the net.

The stories on OLTL are good but I don't think I can watch day to day because the bad acting and dialogue take too much away from it so that is not enjoyable enough to bother.
