Quote daysforever: Well, we (The Fans) DO care. It's our fix, our comfortable habit, the place where we watch characters that we love and that we hate grow up, grow out, betray, find love, marry, have babies, grow old, and even die. And at times, it's our Love in the Afternoon! Good or bad story lines. We care, and that's why we watch.
DAYS is VERY fortunate to have a few like you left! The problem for the show in recent decades is they've lost MANY MORE & let them get away by simply not listening & caring about the WHOLE audience - only the ones THEY (the writers) care about while they've attempted to ignore the show's true history & write an entirely different show! That has not kept the numbers up as we all know & why this thread was started. There needs to be no real competition about who still watches & who's left - ratings staying on the bottom of the barrel shows that TPTB have dropped the ball (not the viewer) because they've done absolutely NOTHING to bring their once very loyal, family-like audience back! Their plan has been a dismal failure & there's no promise for better - been going on too long. As for DAYS staying on the air - that IS a puzzle although it no longer affects me, personally - I don't care one iota. It's definitely NOT high ratings, so who knows - maybe they don't have anything better set up in place right now OR they're letting DAYS celebrate 50 yrs. We'll soon know but for those LOVING this cheap product, knock yourselves out! Glad you're enjoying but they definitely need a WHOLE lot more to be comfortable - that's for sure!!
