TVSource Magazine presents its picks for the best of 2012 for daytime dramas. What did The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless get right last year?
2012 was an interesting year to say the least. It began on a sour note, as daytime said goodbye to One Life to Live and the wonderful residents of Llanview. It seemed almost certain that General Hospital, ABC’s last remaining soap opera, would soon join All My Children and OLTL in the graveyard, but in a twist befitting a sweeps reveal, GH was saved!
There were also big regime changes at three of the soaps as General Hospital, Days of our Lives (no surprise) and The Young and the Restless ousted executive producers and head writers to make room for new (yet familiar) regimes to come in and take control.
In honor of the year that was, TVSource Magazine staff has compiled a list of what we felt was the best in 2012.
