You can spin it any way you like. The facts are that Java has been big part of the show when they've lost .3 in demos and .3-.4 in HH. And the point of my original post was that according to the "rumors" TPTB said Java was a hit. On what basis? When/if J&M get back together, who knows...the damage has been done. And Lucas/Chloe, Chan and the other mismatched couples are also to blame.

Sounds like someone with an anti-Deidre agenda and too much time on their hands.
*The reference to Java as a "hit" despite the tanking households and demos since they were moved front and centre. TB has been well received and has decent chemistry with Drake but to call them a "hit" is- at the very least- an exaggeration
*The implication that Deidre has the power to "put a stop" to a story she doesn't like.
*The dig at Deidre as the "odd, older woman"
So, again, the blame for the ratings goes on ONE couple? I'm sorry. I can't buy your reasoning. Certainly, the personality of the Great Ms. Hall falls somewhere in the middle, but based on what I've heard in the past (and from people who have been involved, from people who know those working in the studio, and from people who have attended fan events), I'm not surprised at all.
WHY, despite decent arguments to the contrary by folks who look at ALL the aspects of ratings, does this old argument of blaming one couple keep going? ARRGHH
OK, I'm going to calm down. You can take it as you want. Personally, I can see this happening. All of it. Do I believe it? I don't know until i hear it from elsewhere. But it's certainly not a Terry rumor.
Great post ladyofthelake. IF Java was the ONLY couple that was in the works, I'd blame the drop in ratings on them, but they're NOT, several different pairings started at the same time Java started as well as storylines in many cases took a turn that has left some fans unhappy.
I hope that the show CAN get Tamara back and hope that she is paired with Drake again. I haven't been THIS excited about one of Drake's pairing since Jate ended. John and Marlena as a couple do nothing for me, I just don't like them PERIOD!
Once John and Marlena get back together, you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be keeping a VERY close eye on the ratings so anybody blaming Java for the show's poor ratings, had better hope that the days that John and Marlena are together have ratings that go through the roof, or else saying Java crashed the ratings makes as much sense as saying Jate crashed the ratings. There ARE other storylines going on.
