I don't want the vets gone but they can't be the whole show anymore. They need to be prevalent and involved. They need to have stories but the ratings don't live and die by the vets anymore. They use to but the ratings have gotten to a point for all shows where nothing will bring them back to where they were. That is why Days may as well gradually move the show into a new era where the vets aren't as heavily relied on. That does not mean you ignore them and don't play them. It simply means you don't force the issue with the vets and you certainly don't keep telling the same sort of stories with them because that gets the show nowhere. Have them young cast involved with the vets and build them up.
Melanie is a nice start and I think the show has a strong 30's cast to rely on. The young cast is strong. They just need some characters not connected to the main families. They had Morgan but screwed that up. They have options. Bring back some more Horton's or maybe break the proverbial rule of not mentioning them and bring back Rex and Cassie and find some way to reverse them being Brady's. That would help.
