The monumental mistakes were Killing John and making Sami,EJ and Lucas the main characters and the main storyline. The ratings have tanked consistently since they took over as lead characters and John and Marlena were backburned. The only spike in the ratings the past year has been when J/M were taken off the bb briefly.

The ratings spiked every week when there was a death during the Salem Stalker storyline as well. It doesnt mean after 15 years people were clamoring to see Maggie Horton because she was going to be on that week. Former viewers tune in to see them die, because its a major event that links back to the times they did watch. They then tune back out because there's nothing grabbing them. Even I checked out John's death on youtube (and its well known I dont like them), i dont find a single thing on this show interesting. Sami and Lucas are not the center of the DiMera storyline, despite what the current creative staff would like to think. The Salem U stuff is shitty and innane. And those seem to be the only two storylines on this show ..... no wonder people turned right back off.

The death scenes sucked btw, but thats off topic :lol:
