I love MS and missed her when she left before. The Sandra gal was ok but I never got excited about seeing her. I place MS right up there with all the VETS. IMO, no other actor/actresses can fill in fir Victor, Nicki, Adam, Nick, Sharon, Jack, Jill, Tracy, Ashley, Billy and Victoria. These chracters are the glue that holds this soap together.
I realize that CBS powers to be has told this Jill to bring in youthful chracters hoping to bring in younger viewers. Its not working as teens could care less. Retirees are of a new age and they are way too busy to watch.
The majority of people who are still watching are those whose Mother's, aunts and grandmother's watched and we have continued that tradition. We have the advantage of DVR and soap channel at night.
I will keep watching just like I did with ATWT, GL and AMC until the curtain falls. It's sad to think that this will probably be our last soap.
