Your forgetting the J&M story (it's backburnered but still a story) and your also forgetting the impending Brady/Chloe/Lucas stuff. Your also forgetting that John's death last year wasn't even a story. It just played into the feud story. They wrapped up the death angle in a week and a half. You had 3 stories last year at this time. You had the Brady/Dimera feud which contained the Sami/Lucas/EJ stuff and John's death/Marlena's vengeance, Shawn/Belle/Philip/Chloe, and the Ford stuff. That's it. Nothing else. Three stories and, really, the Ford stuff did not get played much at all until December when he died so there is clearly more stories going on. The show doesn't have stories that involve many characters being involved. It's got individuals stories that it's setting up to kind of intermingle a bit. Big difference.
Yes, the balance is not perfect but we are seeing more characrters now then we did this year even with the lack of Tony, Steve, Kayla, etc. Instead of Sami, Lucas, EJ, Belle, Shawn, Philip, etc dominating we now have Kate, Daniel, Lucas, Chloe, Nicole, EJ, Melanie, Nick, Chelsea, Stephanie, Lexie, Abe , Bo, Hope, Stefano, Sami, Rafe, etc getting heavy airtime and the show usually gives each of them a day break at least during the week to break things up. It's also alternating stories throughout the week instead of one story dominating. Come this week, I'm sure Brady will be tossed into the mix as well and it sees J&M will be featured more to so more characters and another story in rotation. HUGE difference from last year.
