    She is the young actor and she needed more time. I love the last episode when she chose to live with her father.
    cheer!
    P.S. Please CBS do not get rid of the old characters....get rid of Sophia and Tucker ASAP!

    Nothing personal but Lindsay Bushman is a lot prettier than Hunter Haley King and she played the spoiled princess very well. I am not liking all the changes the writers are making. As a long time viewer, and I'm talking decades long, the writers are not being sensitive to those who have been faithfully watching for years! I started watching this soap as a young girl, with my grandmother...one generation influences the next. WRITERS...keep that in mind!

    I disagree! I think this version of Summer is much prettier than the last girl. I absolutely want the new Summer to be more like Phyllis and less like a carbon copy of Abby.

    Glad to see a new Summer.. The last one sucked.

    Summer Newman' role played by Ms. Bushman was so fresh; the actor looks normal like an average American girl who is in right weight not anorexic good looking, well mannered and most of all without any plastic surgery! So why to get rid of her? It is insane! We do not like doll and dull look alike young women to play the girl, do not we?

    P.S. She was amazing in the police station (print?) Sorry to see her being thrown out!
    OUCH the big time!

    carbon copy? ouch! she is not a carbon copy, she looks normal like the average American Girl not like a floozy!
