Watching Y&R more recently I am reminded of the fact that despite all of Latham's faults with Y&R she proves daily that she knows who works on Y&R. And that is the biggest reason Y&R has not free fallen like so many other shows.
Latham has the sense to know where the talent lies and what characters fans care about. And she has the sense to know that just because a woman reaches 50 or even in Cooper's case almost 80 she doesn't lose interest and doesn't immediately become undesirable.
She keeps Cooper with stuff to do as well as Chapman, Walton, Scott who are all over 50 and still vital women and characters. As well she keeps Jack and Victor in the action.
She gives the younger sets lots of stuff to do but she never forgets to focus on her older set too. No wonder Y&R does well in all the demo groups which helps to keep them at the top of HH's.
