||Man, they just don't do the real classics anymore, do they?|

||Ugh at the reruns on ABC. I miss the days when they would show classic episodes from the early 90's and 80's. Who wants to see a show from a few months ago?|

||I loved the 40th Anniversary episode of OLTL, but why would I want to see that again after only a MONTH, when I could see something from 10-25 years ago?|

when did ABC ever show 80s classics. That was CBS. Barbara Bloom, with her ABC mentality, nuked that in favor of movies.
Anyway ... foolish Days. You basically have a day when you could be the only soap to air an original episode, maybe get some people to tune in and watch .... I know on that very fatefull day 10 years ago someone shot Franco Kelly on labor day, and I had to start using the VCR to see who it was when school started the next day ....

||Not surprised that Days may have made another stupid mistake by not showing a regular show. JMO|

Well, it isn't the people at DAYS decision to not air an episode that day it is NBC's.
Even if it had been on the rating wouldn't of counted. It would be classified as a special.

Geez...now people are blaming Days for shit not in their control :eyeroll: . Seriously, the day won't count anyway and the week before Labor Day heading right into it is usually low too. This isn't the same ratings climate. You won't attract anyone on Labor Day. It's the last chance at vacations. It's the end of summer. Most just won't have the time.
As for ABC, not surprised. The classics make the current stuff look like shit and they want to show stuff to pimp up the current stuff going on. Not surprising. We don't even get classics anymore on Soapnet. We used to get Marathons and everything. Thanks alot, Frons. :angry: .
