The SUDS Report!

More details tomorrow...

In the meantime, updates from Nelson:

"MAJOR, MAJOR NEWS IN MONDAY'S NELSON RATINGS. This story just got nastier! And it involves Y&R. Just wait... this DAYS story is going to break your hearts. It's a sad, sad, world in daytime. There's NO hope."

"I can't legally do anything until tomorrow. I would NEVER have guessed yesterday that this news story would go in this direction. My sources left out A LOT of facts originally, and to be fair I misunderstood what they were trying to imply because of a certain scandal last year. If you love irony, tomorrow you'll be drenched in it, but depressed. I want to put you all out of your misery, but I can't. And tomorrow, please don't shoot the messenger. It gets ugly... and I don't think Days will ever recover. Yes, it sounds like I'm teasing, but I'm not.... I really didn't know what I was getting myself involved with which has never happened before in my career. This makes Martha Byrne's departure seem like a love affair between her and ATWT! News story of the year, yes, but no one wants to deliver this kind of news. But I have to now. And no, Days isn't canceled."

YES!!!!!

But please, no Jack Smith or Josh Griffith. DAYS fans would hate Smith's slow pace and if they reviled Hogan, they'll hate Smith even more. Griffith, just no, he's all wrong.

I don't see Smith leaving B&B, especially after his BFF Kay Alden is now HW.

I say hire a writer who is an actual fan of DAYS or someone who hasn't written for soaps before, but is a fan of DAYS.

Thank Christ. :drunk:

She did a few things right, but many things wrong.

I wonder if Corday will be pissed at Ed Scott since he seems to be the reason she bailed.

I think Rick Draughon might get the promotion and he might turn out to be good. I mean, he was a fan of DAYS (or so they say) prior to joining as a writer. DAYS needs new blood more than any other soap, IMO.


And NaV, I'm ready for the gossip. ;)

Apparently he was a mod at SC back in 2002 and he was very rude to some of the members there and he made it perfectly clear that he hated Philip, John and Marlena and that he was pro-Broe and pro-Brady. I don't know if this is true but that's what I was told.

Not surprising. She was obviously unhappy, she was hated by anyone and I quess it was impossible to get any good dialog/associate writer why she occupied the job. On the other side, what HW will want to work for DAYS now? I quess Rick Draughon will be given the position temporarily, but after that? Who would even want write for DAYS after the Brash/Cwikley, Highley, Railly, Sheffer, Highley fiasco. The different writers already tried everything from total campy show to ultra realistic character driven storylines. Nothing helped.

Anyway, kudos to Dena for stepping down because it takes a lot of courage and with Corday´s support she could probably hold the position atleast for another year. I liked a lot of her ideas and stories on paper and in the spoilers, but for some reason it mostly ended flat on screen. We will see what happens now.
