This soap has been going downhill for years. The writers are bad, ridiculous storylines. People die, then they keep coming back.

This is the second soap to shut down in the last few months. Looks like their time has come. Of course now we are stuck with all the talk show wannabe's.

The best soap opera ever was "As The Stomach Turns" starring Carol Burnett.
