These are fascinating, dmarex. It is so funny that my perception is we don't see enough of Nikki...but she was in half the shows. And if you add together Muhney and Engen, Adam (with 15 eps) is second only to Braeden and Haiduk. What an odd time to leave a role...so FULLY on the front burner.

Like I thought it would look like with Victor & gang at top...

Random but it is pretty disturbing when I considered JT & Vickie on way too much - even with their little screen time. Jess, Jeanne and Tricia should be a lot higher in light of their recent tour de force performances.

I think it stinks that Tracey Bregman is used so little. And frankly I don't want anyone telling me how they feel that having Michael and Lauren as supporting players is better. I accepted that a few months ago, but they aren't even treated as valued supporting players anymore and Tracey isn't treated any better than a dayplayer.

These writers can't even use her as filler. Phyllis's kid is in the hospital but they can't bother to have Lauren show up for her supposed best friend. We haven't seen Fen for 6 months. I bet they won't use her for the July 4 show where supposedly 90 percent of the cast was used.

Maybe Lauren and Michael don't have as many fans on SON as other sites, but CLB and TEB have always been popular actors, they have their fans and the actors are being wasted and their fans are being shafted. I can't believe they can't figure out how to use Tracey Bregman once a week, yet they can use their favorites five days a week. TEB is a good actress, a loyal vet and deserves better. So do her fans.

And don't worry about Kay, Jill and Nina. I am sure they will be front and center all summer as it is obvious they are favs of MAB. I don't mind that as they are all fine actresses and are saving graces for this show lately. I just resent that other fine actors, like Tracey Bregman, continue to get so little respect from these writers.

I'm not sure how much of a favorite Jill is. She happens to be in a story with other characters MAB prizes, but Jill herself tends to get the short end of the stick. They just wrote her as shrewish after she found out Katherine wasn't her mother. Losing her money and going back to work filing nails was written for laughs. If she weren't in this story about Phillip and Cane I think she might be seen only a little more than Lauren is now.

You have a point, but at least Jess Walton is working and being allowed to act unlike Tracey Bregman. And no doubt, Jess Walton will be front and center with this upcoming Philip story and Cane redux. There is no story even hinted at for Lauren or Lauren and Michael. Even JT and Victoria are now being placed in this ridiculous art story of the Scooby Gang. The only potential story we are hearing about is rumors that Lauren will be written out or killed off even though she has been ignored for the most part since February except for a few weeks when they needed her as Fenmore's CEO when Sharon was stealing.

I wonder what MAB's problem is with TEB and somewhat CLB? I get that Hogan Sheffer hates happy couples, but MAB claimed to like Michael and Lauren as the stable couple last fall and now they, especially Tracey, seem to be persona non grata with the writers. If they don't like happy couples then give them problems just find a way to use them.

With Lauren it's probably about money. The less they show her the less they may have to pay her. That's why I worry about what will happen to Jess when this story is over. She probably agreed to reduce her appearances when she signed her new contract, so they may decide it's cheaper to just show her as little as possible.

THIS exact reason is why I worry when actors take lesser guarantees or go to recurring. In every industry, when the going gets tough, these partial-employees get the boot first.

If I were told I had to take a 40% pay cut, I would STRONGLY negotiate for a 40% cut in rate, with zero cut in guarantee. Because a high # of appearances still gets you relevance and viability. The way it is now with Bregman, they could kill Lauren off camera tomorrow, and we'd have a mourning episode, and then nobody would care.

I don't buy the money excuse at this point. Maybe if her episodes were reduced a bit but to have her on once a month for 30 secs in June and twice a month for maybe 6 mins in May is ridiculous. She will have been used in three shows in three months if she is once again not used in July.

The actor playing Murphy is recurring and he has been 49 eps to CLBs 48 eps. Tricia Cast's Nina is recurring and I have no doubt she will be used quite heavily this summer. They have to be going over the contract limits of many of these actors who are on four or five time a week, and yet they keep playing the same characters heavily and they have to be making way more than Tracey Bregman.

They will not be breaking the bank or ruining their budget to use Tracey Bregman once in awhile. I am tired of giving these writers an excuse for everything they do because they have "financial problems". If they can go into bidding wars for Gina Tognini, bring on Johnny Driscoll, bring characters over from B&B they can pay a vet like Tracey Bregman to be used once or twice a week. She is not in the same pay category of the top actors or even the second tier actors. They don't have to pay her a minimum. They just need to pay her when they use her.

Nothing personal Carl, I am just fed up with this as a Tracey Bregman and Lauren Fenmore fan. And as a Christian Le Blanc fan I am also tired of the way they are wasting his talents and using him for a minimum of appearances.

Don't give them an out Mark. This is exactly what they want to hear. This is why they have been minimizing Lauren so that if they choose to kill her off or send her away they are hoping people would not care. We are being manipulated and if they do this with Tracey Bregman they will continue to wittle away at the vets until the majority of the cast are newer characters played by younger actors. All they will probably keep around the Jeanne Cooper's and the quad to keep the fans complacent.

I for one will miss and care if Lauren and Tracey Bregman were no longer on this show. She started on this show when she was 19 and was with one of the Bell soaps for 25 years. She is not a throw away character even if the writers are treating her like one.

I think we have several things going at once:

A. MAB and team have a hard time writing for multiple parts of the canvas. Right now, I feel they have a number of stories cooking (Quad + Billy-Chloe-Mac; Mary Jane, Adam, P3)...so the canvas IS busy. But the same players in these stories have been frontburner for some time...meaning that many others have had a loooooooooooooong stint on the backburner.

B. Cost-containment. When your scrimping extra dime, you don't spend on luxuries. If you are obliged to pay your contract players, you play them...and you disregard your recurring folks. Since the CBS license fee cut a few months back, look how little Murphy has been used. So too, Noah and Eden would be cheap recurring...but they're barely played.

C. Strategic pare down. Like it or not, it seems that the value of some of these characters is being diminished by not playing them (just as was done during Don Diamont's last year), in preparation for a cast purge.

The only good thing with Lauren and the Fishers, if they're not killed off, is that Lauren, Michael and Gloria could fit beautifully on B&B. There is no room there now, but it is a natural and easy fit over there.

Please don't talk about scary things like the Fishers being killed off or written out. I couldn't bare it. :(

    • He played someone named David Bordisso on PC so probably. He looked like a Founding Father. There's been a lot of talk about the show never finding a man who could toe to toe with Eileen's Ashley but Jill has never had a suitable love interest. John doesn't count because that was hardly a passionate love affair or marriage and Colin sure as hell doesn't count because that story sucked and they write Jill as stupid when she's in "love". ANYway back to the topic, has anyone mentioned the Ford (modeling agency) brothers from OLTL? What even was that? It was so transparent and lazy. How do we count the many, many forced familial units on GH? Obrecht gained a son and daughter in two established characters, a niece in Nina and thereby great-nieces in Willow and Nelle and a lover in Faison. How do we count those? Where it's revealed multiple disparate characters are all related.
