Still have no idea why they let JVD go..Ross and Blake could have been the best "talk tos" the show has had in years, and with Dinah in their orbit would have quite a lot of things to respond to. I know most people don't like LK's Blake as opposed to SS..but I still think she was a grown up version of Blake who was raised basically by Ed and Bert in her formative years so can see the warmth coming out.
Exactly. I think this has a lot to do with it. This time last year, a lot of people were still out of work and possibly still quarantined (lucky them, huh), so watching television was easier. I don't see many people DVRing a talk show at this point, when they can get highlights on YouTube.
Yeah; it was such a jarring switch, and they kept using the voiceover for a few episodes. Such a bad change.
Switching from Clayton Norcross to Jeff Trachta was such a downgrade. For me, Norcross was the best in the role, followed by Winsor Harmon. Do we know why the switch between Norcross and Trachta happened? Or is it another Judith Baldwin/Nancy Burnett situation?
Thankfully, William J. Bell had this unspoken rule (at least I believe it was unspoken) to not recast a character more than three times.
