Killing myself slowly
|DAYS got a 0.9 in W18-49...that is the same thing they got last week, so I don't expect to see much fluctuation in their ratings.|

Last week message boards all over the planet were flooded with I will never watch this show again as long as I live now that they have killed Delia!
Obviously those were not Nielsen families that participated in the shut-out.

Didn't we all expect this spike? Of course we did.
But its only temporary, the real challenge for Ms. Farren and company is - do those number have staying power?
People tuned in to peak their curiosity, but now, lets see if Ms. Faren can actually write something that will keep the audience.
My guess is - not

||I have to say, all the (negative) buzz around this storyline had me curious so I watched a few episodes last night. I rarely watch Y&R but I thought it was really engaging thanks to the actors, especially Billy Miller. But I understand why people are angry, they want to be entertained in the middle of their day, this is just too depressing. Maybe they can't stop watching right now because they don't wanna bail on the characters during the tragedy but they might give up on the show later.|

No offense but I just can't even fathom why a person that doesn't watch this show would tune in just to see people grieving over the death of a little seven year old girl.
I just don't get it. I can see tuning back in for a back-from-the dead character or a wedding between two people kept apart forever .... but to watch the fall-out from the worst thing that could possibly happen to a parent?
I started watching this show way back in 1981 when I was only 10 years old and over the years I have read of people tuning out for this and that and I always wondered if that day would ever come for me, a 32 year viewer.
Yep. Came last week. Jill Farren Phelps + Dullan + Delia's death = too much for one soap fan to take.

I guess it's easier to distance yourself when you're not a longtime viewer.
It didn't feel like I was watching real people grieving, I was watching actors getting through some really tough material.
Of course, it made me sad because I thought about real parents losing their child.
I don't know if you see the difference.
