Again, I respect your opinions but I still don't agree with most of them.

Sweeps don't have to be about big events and shouldn't always be about them. When you make every sweeps about some big bombshell, it weakens the story because everything is geared towards creating that big, explosive event. GH did this for years and the while the sweeps ratings would be okay, the show would plummet in the off months because there was no actual story being told -- just transitions from one event to another.
This sweeps, we have the big reveal of Nicole's lies, Bo and Caroline's exit, and now Eric's return. We've also had Kristen's manipulations (leading to her reveal), Sonny and Will getting together, and the reveal of Gabi's pregnancy. People may not like those stories/reveals, but it's actually quite a bit of stuff happening.
While I respect your opinions, I don't agree. We obviously have very different ideas of what type of entertainment we enjoy watching. I am enjoying GH right now and that is exactly the type of thing that keeps me interested and coming back for more. While a lot is happening on Days now, not very much is interesting to me and has been a disappointment. While I am happy for you that you are enjoying the show, I am not.
Just to be clear, I wasn't talking about GH now. I was referring to how GH operating for years until the regime change. They actually seem to have figured out the balance for the moment. Days isn't there yet, but I do think there was a lot more going on for sweeps than people give credit for. JMO.
