Quote dani9564: I just don't get it... Prime time soaps seem to be doing good they need to bring more daytime soaps back.
I have a question and you made me think about it. I'm posing this question to anyone who wants to answer.
I agree with you that Prime Time soaps seem to do good. Would you watch daytime soaps more if they were presented in Prime Time fashion?
Meaning...lets say they had 5 soaps that aired once a week. So lets say they keep GH as the standard 5 days a week show (or not) and they had from 3-4pm on Monday it's Grey's Anatomy, Tuesday it's Revenge, Wednesday it's Private Practice, Thursday it's Army Wives and Friday it's The Lying Game. Or whatever shows they created as daytime soaps. Do you think that would bring soap watchers back to daytime tv?
See, I think they could do something like that. It could be soaps that run on 26 week seasons and be produced cheaper than the nighttime versions. I think it could boost all of daytime ratings. Even maybe bringing back OLTL and doing OLTL and GH every other day at the 2pm spot giving Friday a talk show similar to SoapNet's Soap Talk and One Day With but not limiting the people to those on soaps now. Kick a little more money into The Chew and ABC could start pulling the ratings away from CBS.
