Do You Watch Soap Operas?

I just love this picture of Jeanne Cooper, the 79-year-old actress who just won her first Daytime Emmy Award for playing the grand dame of The Young and the Restless, Katherine Chancellor. The show has long been a staple in my family, so her win puts a smile on my face.

It also got me thinking: Are you a soap opera fan? If so, let me know in the comments which series you never miss!

I started to watch them again when I was between jobs. Now that I am working again GH gets TiVo everyday. I will TiVo OLTL or Y&R a few times a week, but if I miss one I can always watch them on the weekend with SoapNet. I love SoapNet.

general hospital all the way! ive watched it since the day i was born, and will always fall back on it when i need something to watch. soaps are fun. they are mindless. they are like old friends. sure, its a guilty pleasure. everyone has them. but soap fans will actually admit it. haha

Passions! There's nothing like zombies, witches, and crazy hat wearing monkeys on daytime tv.

Hello people- just cause you work doesn't mean that you can't watch. Have you heard of a VCR or soapnet??? I watch Y&R and Days. If you record you can skip the commercials and it's half as long.

don't get mad at me but the acting is so poor and the plots so retarded I don't get how anyone could enjoy these shows????

Yes, I watch General Hospital everyday (dvr's are a blessing!) and I usually watch One Live To Live maybe 2-3 days a week. By the way, Jeanne Cooper's award speech was hilarious! Something like "Everyone has the best director, etc, so I want to thank my lousy director, lousy writers, lousy cast... But we're still number 1!" Haha, loved her!

When I was in college, I was addicted to All My Children...I would even make sure I didn't have classes or other commitments at noon so I could go home and watch it! Now I watch One Life to Live and General Hospital on Fridays (my day off) - I've found you can totally keep up only watching once a week. They are so great - no reruns!

I hate them now, but I used to love Days of Our Lives and General Hospital when I was in middle and high school.

I used to watch "Days" and "Y&R" in the late 80's. Every now and then I'll turn it on to see who's still on there. It's amazing to see what plastic can do to those old hags. Haha!

General Hospital - I quit for many years, but with Tivo I can catch it a few times a week and just fast forward through the storylines that I'm not interesting in. I also loved Another World in highschool. I was sad when that went off the air.

I used to watch all the soaps on CBS, now I can't believe I used to. I blame my mother. I was young and had no control over the remote. LOL.

I don't have time to watch soap operas when I'm in college but I usually watch All My Children and sometimes The Young and the Restless. Those were the shows my mom used to watch...
