I did not say that Nicole was the reason for the low ratings, but I did say that one reason for the low ratings is that Higley is prioritzing characters such as Nicole incorrectly, and Higley is writing other characters out of character and moving them into the background. There are other reasons the ratings are low, and those were in effect before Higley began doing this with Nicole.

I think my answer to this post and to Tim's post that he and I are watching different shows would be the same, which is that yes, Nicole has gotten a positive reception, but in terms of my watching a 'different show' than Tim, the show I'm watching is unfortunately doing poorly in the ratings and seems to be in danger of cancellation. Why is that? I'm suggesting that one reason (and perhaps I didn't explain myself clearly) is not that Nicole has increased screen time, but that she seems to be the lead of the entire show lately, while the other (former) leads are playing characters which are unrecognizable, and that most of them are background characters at this point. Filling the show with characters like Nicole (and actresses like Ari) would definitely be a positive in my book. But instead, Higley has created only one such character, seemingly at the expense of the other characters.
It was doing poorly in the ratings BEFORE Nicole ever came on the scene, so I don't quite see your point.
