  1. Wow...What's with the low ratings? I'm curious as to why daytime relies on the same set of writers who seem to shuttle from CBS to NBC and then back to ABC...There's Jill Farren Phelps who is now at Y&R but wasn't she responsible for kinda decimating Another World and Santa Barbara while at the helms of those shows. Then there's Christopher Whitsell who was brought back to Days, but wasn't he let go just a number of years back? Hmmm, I think it would have been a lot wiser for NBC, Sony and Ken Corday to hire, if at all possible, OLT's former head writer & GH's current writer, Ron Carlivarti. It just seems the soaps rely on the same old headwriters...Right now, Days is kind of moving at a snail's pace because of this new writing team's tempo if you will which is no doubt the cause for the downtick in the ratings. These writers must zip it up and quickly otherwise the powers that be should show them the door before Christmas and usher in new, innovative writers...perhaps someone similar to Ryan Murphy who is edgy and will give the show a much needed shot in the arm!

    1. If only..but with rehiring Tomlin/Whitesell which were just fired one year ago NBC, Sony and Corday seem to want their soap to be cancelled...

  2. I just do not understand the logic: is it because Sony, NBC & Corday productions believe that Whitsell/Tomlin are familiar with the show and ergo, that duo is the best choice?

    I am a loyal fan, and I, of course, watch regardless of who happens to be writing. That said, it just seems that these writers are moving the storylines at too slow a pace and that may have worked for a show in 1982 but it is not going to work in 2012. These writers have at their disposal some amazingly iconic characters to work with, quite literally some of the most iconic and gothic characters in the history of soaps, and to turn down the great opportunity to spin suspenseful stories for these characters would be a real shame. Where is Kathy Bates' character from Misery when you need her? They need a woman like her (well, not exactly like her...but you know what I mean...) to wake up those writers. Their stories are too slow-moving and sleepy...
