@Soapsuds you are corrrect about the huge ratings slide. It was the combo of three things: Ryan's and Malcolm's death and AB leaving. And the horrific Neil in the gutter storyline. All happened in a very short period of time. Y&R lost over a million viewers in a short period of time. Many blamed the loss solely on SM leaving, but SR and AB were extremely popular And CBS started doing surveys, etc. I believe this slide directly lead them to bringing VR back to stem the flow, especially among AA viewers. If someone has a better memory of this era, please chime in.
You're probably right. IMO, it'd make little sense to include her in the new series (at least at the start), but I can't see the producers resisting the idea. Especially if the new series doesn't do well in the ratings. So, it isn't so much a question of IF Alexis would be included, but WHEN, and with which washed-up TV veteran playing her. (My money, believe it or not, is on Shannen Doherty. Provided, of course, she beats the cancer.)
There is absolutely no way in Hell Alexis would not show up at some point. Alexis is almost all people like me on the outside know about Dynasty. It's more likely they're saving her up. But no one can do Joan Collins.
I guess I'll read the script tonight or tomorrow since this widespread gmail issue has me too paranoid to do much.
Exactly. It kills me that people online are claiming that Heavenly was dragging Mariah with them weak baby reads she was giving.
I was like, "Bitch where? B/c I didn't not see it."
Mariah was skull-dragging Heavenly like it was nobody's business.
