Quote diehardAW: DAYS rating keep going down. I do wonder why?
Days has been at around a 1.8 for several years now. For a nano second it went up to a 2.0 but went right back down.
I've used the word layers for years now also. That is what has been missing from the show. Interwoven characters and s/l that cross over each other.
The only s/l even remotely being written like that is the gay one. And even that s/l missed out on several layers that could have been added. Will thought Austin was his dad for years and lived with him and Carrie, yet there was no interaction. Jack was Sonny's uncle, yet they never interacted and he barely had a conversation with his sister Addriene the entire time he was back on the canvas.
Back in the day the story was intricate in it's relationships and people over lapped, most s/l now are isolated.... and that's the biggest problem of the show - IMO
