SoapOperaNetwork released the latest ratings and GL got a 1.4 - That is another record low rating for GL!
So last night I was thinking about how this show can be save? Yes, it can be save!
I was thinking that Digest need to run a story about saving this show. Digest really needs to do this. It is unfortunate that Ellen Wheeler and her team keeps running this show into the grave. Very unfortunate! This show is over 70 years old and I would like to see it on air for atleast 100 years. It can happen!
I love this genre too much and I disagree with those who say the genre is dying and so on. Daytime need to get its act together now before its too late. It is already late but the damage can be reverse.
We all know GL will be canceled. There is no more another year for GL - None, nada! It's going off the air with all these record low ratings. Ellen Wheeler needs to fire that writing team if she has to. Employee people who can actually write an interesting story.
I know SOD plays nice with everyone so they can get scoops and whatever but its time to lay the smackdown on some of these soaps, writers and execs. We already lost Passions; GL is next followed by Days and ATWT. With soaps gone, SOD won't even exist. I believe if SOD print an article about saving GL someone at CBS will actually listen. Make it your cover story. SAVE GL - FIRE ELLEN WHEELER AND HER WRITERS? Ed Scott would be a good EP to replace Wheeler. That man is too talented to be unemployed.
30 minutes - GL, ATWT, Days and AMC need to go back to being a 30 minute soap. They just need to. Look, when you have crappy writers, no one want to sit down and watch 1 hour of nonsense being dragged out. With 30 minutes, it will be good. I do believe more viewers will watch since it will be a half hour show. They will also save a lot of money. GL needs to save every penny that they can save. Same goes for you Days! GL also need a better time slot. A 30 minute show will get them a better time slot. I hate the 10 AM time slot here in NYC. That is way too early.
What do my fellow GL viewers think? Fire Ellen Wheeler? Fire the writer team? What? Let me know.
