Couldn't agree more. And you know what else? It's the summer! Yet ratings have gone up without a teen beach moment all week. I'm sure they're totally perplexed by that, lol.

I think Days just took the perfect opportunity and ran with it. Given that I'm sure they knew the Olympics would have a huge lead-in effect, the show put on recognizable, very strong talent all week, and improved the writing so much. I have no doubt the ratings will decline after the Olympics, but I'd hope the show did permanently gain back some lapsed viewers. Of course, Dena will lose them eventually, but I hope it provides a nice bounce for a little while.
That's just what ticks me off. TPTB see that DAYS usually goes up in the ratings when popular characters are featured, yet they would rather plague us with the newbies and characters that fans are annoyed with.
