Interesting they fire these 4 but NB who is in the story with them all hasn't even aired yet. 

 

I think they should have kept BB. 

 

The new Ciara should have been the first on any DAYS cutting block.

These actors will not be missed. However, the character of Shawn deserves better. Personally, I would have left him in Maine once Jason Cook made it clear he didn't want anything long term, and not even brought Belle or Claire back at all.

 

Lani should have worked, but Sal Stowers was lifeless. I liked the potential of her bringing down the corrupt cops (Roman, Hope, Rafe), honest Abe standing by her to the potential detriment of his relationships with the Bradys. It never would have happened anyway, or if she was close to doing so, she'd certainly be labelled a villain for actually doing what was right, go crazy, and then killed off. Abe lamenting her existence.

 

I also like the idea of Summer conning Maggie. That could have been a good story, but they went about it in the most horrific route imaginable.

 

Hopefully, like others have noted, Lavoisier will be gone soon. Philip can be successfully recast, but not with this creature. Not with Prince Froglip. And now that we have hunky Dario, and the Hernandez family has been built up, Rafe can be killed off for maximum impact. Probably by the hands of Andre, who'll disappear forever, immediately after. 

 

Note: I also hate Brady and Theresa in every way imaginable. Thank you.

It's both the actors and writing, not the characters. Martha Madison has always projected old and severe and is a passable actress at best. Brandon Beemer has a nice body. That's it. If they were serious about this they'd have worked with Jason Cook and found a strong performer for Belle. But they're not serious, because DAYS almost never is. And as for planning, any writer who does have a real plan to change and evolve the show they (and by 'they' I mean Ken Corday) fire. He doesn't want to change. He just wants to go in and out and be an absentee steward of a crippled show that sort of lazes along.

 

Sal Stowers had potential for growth on AMC 2.0 - she was very, very, very green but seemed to be improving with the bulk of her time spent with actors like Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams, and with solid writing. (Rob Wilson did the same, albeit he was always far less green and much more charismatic.) On DAYS she has had neither good writing, nor rehearsal time nor solid actors to bounce off of on a regular basis. So she's been terrible. It's sad.

 

As for Rafe, Dena Higley would kill every other male lead before offing him.

no it wasn't. She barely interacted with them. The bulk of her run on AMC was with Cass kidnapped. She wasn't bouncing off of these two till her last several episodes. Before it was random thugs

More than her last several, IIRC. The point is she did better work than she did here.

Right. There were 43 AMC 2.0's. She got dropped off at Angies end of episode 20 and David saved her episode 21

I hope Casey is not leaving. He hasn't had much to do though….he was my favorite once CM left….but unfortunately it didn't keep me watching full time.

honestly dont see a place for JJ considering they SORASED the teens into the college ages and they aged him out of that without any scene partners in his age range. He shoudlnt be an adult as part of the working force yet.

I'd love to see him pop up  on B&B as a Forrester. I doubt he would be used considering Bradley Bell only has eyes for Liam.

He could play a SORAS'd RJ who gets put into a quad with Nicole, Zende and Thotsha

Someone's eyes were blind enough to put creepy-ass Wyatt front and center. I'd rather see Casey in that type of role, although he'll probably just be Thomas #43.

    • New soap from Sussman. The first daytime serial featuring a black family as one of the "core" families (around which story lines develop) debuts today (March 21) on NBC (there are two feeds: noon -12:30 p.m. and 12:30 -1 p.m.). The series centers on three generations of two Chicago families -the Marshalls, who are black, and the Whitmores, who are white. Pat Crowley (Dynasty), Taurean Blacque (Hill Street Blues), Joan Pringle (White Shadow), Lynn Hamilton (Sanford & Son), Gail Ramsey (General Hospital) and Andrew Massett (Days of our Lives) head the cast. Generations was created by Sally Sussman (The Young and the Restless), who will serve as executive producer and head writer. The show is being produced at NBC Studios in Burbank, Calif., by her company, Old Forest Hill Productions, in association with NBC Productions. In a recent press interview, Sussman said she did not create the program specifically with the notion of being the first to focus on a black family. "The fact that they are black is almost incidental to the concept of the show," she said. "What we hope to do is to be able to tell stories about all the generations, not to necessarily focus on just the young people or the older people, but to focus between the relationships and the differing classes and their struggles and the way that they are dealing in the 1990's."
    • Roseanne hit #1 the week it took over the Tues 9pm timeslot. It had a rating of 27.7/40. Cosby was #2 25.3/40 The 9.30 follow up Anything but Love was # 7 22.6/34 The competition was In The heat of the Night NBC #21 17.1/25 and the CBS Tuesday Movie #75 6.4/10 Roseanne's success to this point was noteworthy. I think it was the first  show that was moved to a lead in (8/9pm) timeslot in its first season. And one of the few shows to hit #1 in the weekly ratings in its first season. Cosby did it as did Beverly Hillbillies. Can't think of any others. Maybe Laugh In or Marcus Welby?
    • Promo ABC ran when Roseanne dethroned Cosby in the weekly ratings in 1989.  How often were these types of promos done congratulating shows that hit #1? I remember Roseanne saying at the time all ABC gave her was this promo and a stupid cake that said #1 (which she and George Clooney took a baseball bat to) while the male network stars were getting fancy cars and bigger network deals.  Must have been an amazing time for Carsey-Werner though, having the top 3 shows in all of television at this point. That’s a feat I don’t believe another production company has ever accomplished.
