I don't watch these shows either, but I do wonder if this is where all the soap are headed. It's been around 17 years since NBC cut down to only one, and they are always threatening to cancel it. I won't be surprise (but I will be mad as hell) when I hear that DAYS has been cancelled. I find myself watching the all-news-channels all day long, and that is so depressing. I want the shows I can get lost in.
