Guiding Light: 60 Minutes

I can't believe we're into the last week of Guiding Light....

here are youtube links for the 60 Minutes segment which broadcast yesterday (and yes, it did make me cry):
part 1:
part 2:

And I have to say, Grant Aleksander completely called it in this comment:  "There are some great stretches that the audience will grant you, you're allowed to send a child off at the age of 12 and bring them back 6 months later fully grown, they will accept all those kinds of things, they won't accept if you take a character and write it in a way that is completely inconsistent with what they have come to accept"

Shoddy, sloppy writing, more than anything else, is what irreperably harmed the show. Although I still think that if CBS had taken the leap of faith and renewed it for another year, things may have been different, because they really turned a corner in Feb of this year (Grant coming back, Otalia, etc)



(no subject)

To quote Brandon Barash's twitter: "Well done Kanye for perpetuating your P.O.S. reputation. Keep it up, buddy."  I mean, seriously, could Kanye be any more of an eejit? Link (for those who don't know what I'm talking about!)

Taylor's reaction:

Have to say, Beyonce has gone way up in my estimation - classy, classy lady for calling Taylor out later on so she could have her moment. 

Pretty much all the responses seem to be of a mind: Kelly Clarkson's reaction on her blog is also bang on the money: "Dear Kanye, What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we're all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like s**t... I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her, so why can't you be?"
