Quote JK9898: I was surfing the net and came across a site that had a Nelson Branco TV Guide interview with MAB and I will paraphrase what he said this interview was posted a week ago.
He basically said the LML destroyed the heart and soul of Y&R and that within a year MAB has revitalized the soap and restored it's creativity and glory without compromising cast, characters, storytelling or ethics. He said the winners are the fans. She also credited Paul Rauch, Hogan Sheffner, and Scott Hamner.
I just wonder how many of you agree with this statement. To me its a bunch of bullspit. I haven't seen any improvement within the last year of this show. I wonder how much she paid him to say that. Sounds like a lot of spin to me. To me it is nowhere near its "glory days".
I read this article when it was posted a few weeks ago and I couldn't agree with you more. If memory serves me correctly,when Hogan Sheffner was at Days of Our Lives writing, he basically ruined the show. A lot of his storylines lost viewers and their ratings really suffered because of this. I think Y&R made a huge mistake by hiring Hogan. I also think that MAB has a lot of work to do if she wants to restore the show to its glory days. The show is nowhere near where it used to be back in the days when I started watching 25 years ago.
