RC is pretty much writing a sitcom, which every now and then works due to some game actors (like PT and SSH) but often leads to some headscratchers. I suppose he got Jackée and said, let me lean into the wackiness.
I wonder if the glossing over of GH has anything to do with how the power dynamic was there. Guza/Pratt had a producing credit (which I assume gave them some autonomy), and we already know what working with Frons on ABC was like.
