We agree that apart from the loyal audience of a show, the remaining world will criticise the dragged plots and over-dramatic twists on the never-ending daily soap operas. But while we criticise them, we also end up watching them sometime or the other. And as much as you might think that the actors can pull and entire episode holding that one expression, that doesn’t change their earning.
