Wow! Scandal #3. Getting prouder and prouder of my soap...
Reply from: Revorushin Friday, April 06, 2012 14:57 PM
Before anyone says anything regarding the low Generations ratings, remember this is the week that it was preempted for the first time for Psl. That's why the soccer is so high an the Generations average is low due to only four days of content and its no secret Fridays a dead day

See. The Premiership games were in the Generations time frame and the numbers show. Proves the theory of the "Generations Habit." Lol
