If we're going for Quality:

1. The Young and the Restless
2. As The World Turns
3. Another World
4. Santa Barbara
5. All My Children
Anyone that doesn't have The Edge of Night as number one for quality is wrong.
I was speaking from the point of view of someone who started watching in 1982 and even then, I only watched DAYS, Another World, and Texas.

In my lifetime, the 5 shows I listed gave me the highest quality entertainment. I LOVED DAYS in the 80s, 90s, and even some of the 00s, but the other 5 shows were better and more consistent imo.

My mom was a HUGE Edge of Night fan and The Doctors fan. Her list would probably look more like this (and she watched since '66):

1. Days of our Lives
2. Another World
3. The Doctors
4. Edge of Night
5. Santa Barbara

Edge of Night (and to a lesser degree, All My Children and General Hospital) was the only non-NBC soap she ever watched. I did almost get her hooked on B&B after SB went off the air, but she lost interest when I was back in school.
