For Y&R during that week there was a lot of Dylan and Avery (I'm just saying....) and most of the vets that were featured played mostly supporting roles. That is not a good thing. It might be time for a little more balance and to follow through with actually building much more long term tales. Just for the record it has been up and down in total viewers for Y&R.

For GH the Carly and AJ hookup didn't help the ratings at all. Nor did the amnesic Lulu. Camp Charles was not on the top. Maybe the returning vets thing is only card they have to play. Um hum... I want to point out to Cartini fans GH is on 3 week ratings decline. Guess everything didn't go all good down at the court. I must say I saw Friday's episode and watching a Tracy talk to a bottle in a hotel room was not what I consider classic soap. In fact I was as bored as people say they are about Y&R. Magic is not there right now. What happened to the spell? And as a conservative soap fan I can tell you camp lovers that I TOLD YOU SO!

For B&B the men's fashion show, Liam/Steffi nor did Brooke's hoe'ish ways coming to light help their ratings. I need more fashion related tales and for the drama to spin out of that. And I need more than 1 storyline per week( s )
Report for the Week of April 15-19, 2013: B&B 3,382,000 (+21,000/+400,000)
Report for the Week of April 22-26, 2013: B&B 3,310,000 (-72,000/+272,000)

For Days Dannifer, Cabby, Bristen, Nic-hoe, Wil-son,and Ejammy, are not enough to keep things going strong. The mix of bad actors along with good ones actually hurts this show for me. Drake ugghh! Even D. Hall seems to be phoning it in. You can't leave it all up to the Dimera's and Sami to keep it afloat. Plus why would a doctor whose mother had Stefano's favorite child be hurting for money, so much so that her son would have to strip for it? Stefano would do anything to make sure that the mother of his dead child in-which he feels guilty for her death was taken care of.
