I am going to sit back & watch SD melt down over shit that is not going to happen. Jaudia, Jasam kiss. Patrick believing he is the father, this stuff aint happening in the next few weeks people. Also Liz did not hit Sam.
Patrick already suspects that.
I don't think he does. I think he suspects that she didn't go with an anon donor.
That's what I think too. Patrick is a moron.

PATRICK DOES NOT KNOW!!!
(source)

Liz warns Robin about the emotional toll it takes in keeping a secret of such a huge magnitude on your shoulders.
Patrick worries about Robin.
Long List Scoopster
(source)

Patrick doesn't think he's the father. However, he thinks someone on Robin's list is. (source)

Do you know why Patrick gives Robin flowers?
He is trying to talk to her about the baby and uses it as an excusefor htem to talk.
Is it because he suspects he may be the dad? Or because he thinks the daddy list came into play. TIA
He suspects. (source)

Ratings Stuff...says the ratings for last week are down again
They aren't up. No worries there.
How can you be sure? I can alreasdy hear JFP crediting this lame boring ass Borianna crap for the ratings increase and saving feb sweeps.
Because I know and you'll just have to wait until they're public tomorrow. No one is crediting anyone with saving sweeps. The business folks are near full panic with the current sweeps results.
Is that just for GH or ABCD?
Across the board but the is the second underperforming sweeps for GH and the revenue loss will be high.
Watch for more product placements that have little to do with the go red campaign
Why won't they consider trimming there cast?
Who says they aren't?
Poster who knows about the ratings, how close is Frons to losing his job?
Not as close as he should be but closer than he was.
How close is Sweeney paying attention to this sweeps?
She's paying attention to the only thing that matters - the bottom line. It certainly seems as if she's watching the bottom line drop more and more. Is she seeing financials that have been spun, like more commercials airing to recoup costs from the lower demo?
The show will likely shave 1 minute to 1 minute 30 coming out of sweeps.
She's getting multiple reports including one prepared independently of ABCD
We'll see whose right next month. All I know is the plan is to cut them even more. The HIV baby storyline is being credited with the decrease in ratings. They've promoted it heavily and no one tuned in. They are sorely disappointed in the response.
Okay, now I know you are full of crap. I know all about the ratings and who is watching what. And whoever fed you that, is talking out of their ass.
Again, we'll see when the airtime for KMc/JT and Scrubs continues to disappear.
You really, really shouldn't take me on in this but have at it.
Do you mind elaborating? I believe you, and I'm sure 99% of us do. Sad
~Scrubbie

I will elaborate to say that I have knowledge of the ratings, how they are measured and attributed and I can state with certainty that this is not what is happening.
How can they blame the HIV storyline if the storyline isn't even being told? The whole month Scrubs have had maybe 10 minutes of airtime. Robin even less. I think you just plain full of it.
they are full of it. if they knew how promotion was measured then they would know that the pr scope for this storyline has yet to hit its heavy phase.
but don't let that stop them
So was someone in the last thread really implying that the promotion for the worst baby story on a soap opera ever in the history of soaps hasn't even geared up yet?
Why bother doing anymore? They should just do 1 minute a week podcasts and cut them completely out of the regular show. Why the fuck are they going to promo something even more that there are no plans to ever show on the fucking screen?

I wasn't implying it, I was straight out saying it - there is more promo to come and by no one's measurement has this been considered heavily promo'ed.
As for the rest, it's clearly rhetorical and I'll leave you to it.
If you read my post I never said it wasn't "really promotion" I said it wasn't heavy promotion Heavy promotion relates to the dollars invested.
Scoff all you want. I really don't care - you're the viewer and that's your right.
I was answering to a baiter who was trying to claim that the two actors involved were going to have their airtime reduced. I know they aren't and that the current ratings were being laid at their feet. (source)

I seriously doubt it unless that can take less than 3 minutes a month. Expect their airtime to be cut in 1/2 from what it is now by March. That is a FACT.
No it isn't but don't let that stop you
how many scenes do scrubs get?
3
Do you have anything on scrubs you can share? Please we'll be good (at least i will) PromisE!!
Patrick will ask Robin point blank if he is the father.
and beyond that I'm not saying any more. the mood of this board is foul and I'm not interested in putting on hip waders (source)

Robin confides in Liz.
Patrick grows agitated when he thinks he finds out who the father is. (source)

Patrick jumps to the wrong conclusion when he overhears Jax telling Robin he is excited about becoming a father. (source)

MHO is that the ratings are down because most of us are DONE with this whole Robin and Patrick on/off again relationship. Either put them together and have the s/l be the struggles of staying together or break them apart and be done. If the GH PTB want to know why the ratings are circling the toilet bowl - have them go done the block to the Grey's Anatomy PTB and ask them how the break up of Mer/Der is working for them.

I swear - the higher you get in management - the dumber you get.

i really agree with you they have ruined the best couple they were so real but all this pushing and pulling is just crazy and now they have robin lieing to patrick about the baby if you know robins history then you know that shw would never lie about something like this they are the best coulp on the show and the only reason why i watch it
