I also hate how it always comes back to the ratings as a measurement of something working. There have been shows out there putting out alot of quality and they have nothing in the ratings to so for it. Ratings can not be used to measure quality, especially in this day and age where soaps are lucky to just stay the same regardless of what they do. It seems like only stunts and gimmicks get rewarded nowadays and even that isn't working much anymore.
You may not be able to measure quality, since that's always subjective, but like it or not, the ratings are what the show goes by. I don't think it's a far reach to acknowledge that the quality of the shows has been in decline for years and the ratings reflect that. It just so happens that TPTB do all the wrong things to try to raise the ratings, from gimmicks, to stunt casting, to trying to appeal to teens. Steady good storytelling would solve the problem, imo.
