Subject: Raven, can you explain???.................................

Raven WHAT is the rationale behind canceling GH if ABC wants the 18-49 demographic? It is #2 behind The View in daytime, and at times, it has surpassed it.

The Talk has lousy ratings, according to this article -
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/showtracker/2011/01/cbs-finds-a-way-to-make-low-ratings-roll-the-right-way-for-julie-chens-the-talk-.html

...and why it was renewed is inexplicable, as you can read in the article.

So it must be money, but what is the point if no one is watching? Does anyone honestly think there are viewers for a cooking show and a weight loss show in the afternoon?

Joan, Julie Chen is married to Les Monvees, the murderer of GL & ATWT, the creep who referred to both soaps as "grandmother's soap operas", the guy she had a baby with about a year or so ago & then ATWT was cancelled & she got a talk show about babies.

Does it make more sense now?

I understand about The Talk but I DON'T understand the rationale for giving GH a year at most. If the networks want the 18-49 demographic, and GH vascillates between #1 and #2 for ABC daytime, WHY replace it? What is the rationale? Cheaper, okay, but do they think they can get that demographic to watch another reality show?
