Well, I believe, if not for the people I listed, DAYS would never have started out as low in the ratings as it did when Hogan arrived in the first place. I support Hogan, but I will certainly admit he has written things this year that I have not liked at all (Crazy Steve, Tinda Lau, Touch the Sky, Pocket, etc.). But my point is that Hogan did not start the alienation of DAYS fans. That started long ago with Langan's damn teen invasion in the early 2000's, and (except with a brief rejeuvenation under B&C) just got worse under Higley and Reilly.

I agree with this assessment.

I definetly feel that DAYS ratings decline is from a number of headwriting tenures.

The Salem Stalker (pre-Melaswen) is the only time DAYS has risen to pretty high numbers and I think that had more to do with the buzz around the show and the fact that DAYS once again was once again producing a storyline that was being talked about at water coolers at work, in high school lunchrooms and on college campuses. Not to mention it was in the mainstream press/ET/AccessHollywood ect. The storyline was riveting and no doubt many lapsed and new viewers turned in to see what the fuss was about and got caught up in it all.

Melaswen destroyed anything that Salem Stalker established (ratings wise) and the show has been tanking every since (ratings wise)...outside of Zach's death (which brought in decent ratings).
