Various people at SOD do this everytime there is a new writer or producer. They loved Reilly and then as fast as you can blink, they didn't. Same with Hogan and so many others. One minute they are tripping over themselves to tell us how good the show is and then the next week, they are outraged at how bad it is. Which is it?

SOD loves Days because their magazines with Days on the cover sells, hence the number of covers Days gets which is odd considering the ratings. Therefore, you can bet that the editors are going to kiss everything that Corday has to keep on his good side.
I disagree. They never loved Hogan. Never. Days barely got rewarded under Hogan, even when he penned superb stuff. The first 3 months of Hogan's reign he got a few accolades but that was it. The next time Days got any credit under him was John's death and Belle admitting the truth about her affair to Shawn.

SOD seems to award plot-driven stuff more then character-driven and that is a big issue I have with them. Look no further then it's praise of OLTL. Sure, it rewarded some of the bigger things like Nash's death and Rex and Adriana's wedding but no credit is being given for anything else. I'm noty saying they deserve an editor's choice every week but it seems like they are almost being forced to praise it rather then wanting too whereas they freely praise shows like GH, ATWT, etc which are in some trouble right now and are definitely not up to quality standards.

I think SOD knows they will get Days covers regardless because Corday views it as good promotion. Sure, it's possible he is bribing them or forcing them to praise Days but SOD has been praising Higley's work since January (even when it wasn't clear she was writing). They made it known in Corday's interview in April, which formally introduced Higley, that they enjoyed her work in the first four months of the year so I do think they genuinely are enjoying her writing. Then again, they also liked the majority of Langan's writing so we shouldn't be surprised at the way they do things :laugh: .
