Wasn't the original explanation, which SOD reported, that he fell out of a tree? They made it sound like it happened out of the studio. Why the cover up? Serious on set injuries are usually reported. I think it's safe to say that Drake has a job for life at DAYS now (well, until cancellation).
You guys aren't looking at this week's numbers objectively. Tuesday's pre-emptions had a clear impact on the numbers. Y&R was only 5,000 below their previous low and if Tuesday's numbers were higher, they wouldn't have hit a new low.
I agree if Brad ever stepped down as HW (but remains EP), you have to keep it within the B&B family (someone who worked there for years and worked their way up). You can't bring a total outsider to B&B. I wouldn't want what happened to Y&R after Kay Alden/Jack Smith left the show, happen to B&B. It's a family soap, keep it that way.
I don't mind this current team of Brad/Minnis/Mulchaey. B&B is a show that can turn within an instant. The show is always a rollercoaster. It's been this way for a long time and I've accepted that.
Yeah, I'm not enjoying Billy either. I thought I would like Billy better with JT in the role, because I do think he's a better actor than Burgess, and a better fit with Gina, but Billy is so unlikable. With BJ's Billy, Billy was at least funny, so that helped a little. I wish Billy had more guilt with sleeping with his brother's wife. Instead, he's just so stone cold about it. So it was nice to see (or not since it happened off-screened....they should've showed this takeover onscreen) Jill/Cane steal B&S.
