    That may be true, however, this writing team deserves every single complaint directed their way. If they can't come up with new original ideas then they are burned out and need to find something else to do. I refuse to believe there is not one single solitary writing team that could not do better job than these hacks. If these guys are not replaced, and soon, then there won't be a show to complain about, sooner rather than later. I don't believe writing for daytime is a lost art. I am convinced better writers are available. As I have said before, a three year old is more imaginative and creative.

    I agree with you. I need to see some positive, original story lines. There are people out there. However, I'm wondering if the people suggesting SONY wants out of daytime aren't correct. It does seem to be going that way. I would hate for another reality talk show to replace Y&R, but big business and big bucks don't care about our small daytime market.

    No they truly do not care, but they should. The audience they are trying to capture doesn't have the disposable income of older long time viewers. We are the ones that are supporting the sponsors but those days are over for this household. If they think women over 50 don't control household budgets then they are sadly mistaken.

    You touched upon what is probably my biggest fear, which is Sony's involvement in all of this. If CBS by itself were in charge of this, I think JFP would already be out the door because of the hatchet job she is doing with Y&R and the legion of loyal fans that are now outraged. I feel as you do, that daytime is already glutted with talk shows and I, for one, am sick of them. I want my soap back!

    i sent steve kent of sony an email and said that very thing.

    told him i wasn't in the desired demographics but that i was a long time viewer who now had the disposable income that allows me and the husband the luxury of buying "stuff".. in fact, i just bought a brand spanking new 50" HDTV plus new stand for it and told him IT WAS NOT A SONY PRODUCT. i also mentioned that my laptop is on it's last legs and my new one wasn't going to be a sony either..i also said that seeing as how sony didn't have any loyalty to the longtime soap viewers that i didn't have any loyalty to sony either and that i was now scoping out toshiba products..
