We can sit here for hours and dissect why the ratings for Days are falling, but it really comes down to one defining reason: nobody's interested in Higley's boring stories. Her couples suck, the stories suck, her writing team sucks... it all sucks.

Of course, it doesn't help that Days is the only soap on NBC, thus they don't have any sister shows whose audiences they can borrow from, but I digress. I still say the biggest reason for failure is Higley's boring stories. Uninspired, anti-climatic, slow and drowsy.
Yes I totally agree that is what it is. Just the same as I said last year. It was Hogan's boring stories last year.
I'm bored of the Higley vs. Hogan thing. Hogan wasn't perfect, but he did have moments of occasional greatness (IMO) and that's still something that can't be said for Higley. Regardless, Hogan's stuff last year has nothing to do with the discussion of here and now. The same goes for JER, same for Langan, same for SSM...

Plain and simple, the stories on Days have been lacking for YEARS now. We have moments of greatness, then it all turns to shit. Days is never great for more than two months before crashing and burning in one form or another. The headwriters all think that they can get by with mediocre work and Ken Corday -- dumbass that he is -- sits back and allows it to happen.
