The Future of Daytime – AOL’s Inside TV

Interesting article about the further eroding of daytime, and how DAYS is leading the way in winning viewers back:

…’Days’ not only doing well, but also gaining viewers?” Bruno asks. “That’s something people didn’t think could happen anymore.”  …

‘Days” increase could be attributed to the return of such fan favorites as Crystal Chappell (Carly), Louise Sorel (Vivian) and Wally Kurth (Justin). (Ratings soared back in 1993 when Vivian buried Carly alive.) Bruno advises shows seeking to maintain and rebuild their fan bases to copy ‘Days’ methods. “I’d bring back Genie Francis to ‘General Hospital,’ Victoria Rowell to ‘The Young and the Restless’ and Cady McClain and Julia Barr back to ‘All My Children,'” the manager says.

AMEN, Michael Bruno.  Read the full article by clicking HERE
