According to a Variety article from 1972, at the time P&G managed to get all of it's soaps in a block on CBS. they were pressuring NBC to move Somerset to 3.30 following AW now that EON was not airing in that slot on CBS. NBC refused saying that Return to Peyton Place had built to a 30 share in that slot and they were happy with that.
Okay, found the date (but not yet the clip) for Philip's performance. Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2001. Two days later, Chloe and Brady sang from The Sound of Music. Oh, and if this wasn't enough earnest singing, the teen characters apparently also sang "Michael Row the Boat Ashore." Lest we forget, they were all in Puerto Rico ostensibly for a class trip on ecosystems.
I think Isabella holds up as a character in history more than real time. Because she annoyed the crap out of me back in the day. I hated her pressuring RoJohn about the baby (Brady) every single second. Looking back, I hate, hate, hate the Tale of 2 Romans, but Izzy B doesn't bother me as much in hindsight. I just remember her sleeping with John when they were in Mexico and Marlena being super devastated and I thought Isabella was so mean. But I built a bridge after 30 years and got over it lol.
I think the Teens could have possibly done a TNBC spinoff. It was just ALOT in the regular show. And I never liked any of those teens much. I liked Mimi and Chloe, but Belle, Shawn D, and Phillip just didn't do it for me. I am OK with them now, but they never inspired fandom for me. I'd rather watch Jarlena or Bope do silly things than Belle/Shawn talk about promise rings.
