Whitesell gets the credit for the good things, and Higley is the target for the bad things, only because she came IN with people cringing about her. As long as she's in, she'll be the target, even if Whitesell ends up writing 95% of the show.

^ We're just going to have to agree to disagree about whether the new characters are liked. I have hardly seen any positive sentiment towards the characters you mention, but apparently you have, so we'll just have to leave it at that. I think some new characters do catch on right away (Nicole), and I think those can be compared to today's vets when they started. But I don't see the comparison at all with the other 'newbies'.
About Higley - I have no idea if she's upset J&M were fired, but she's currently head writer of the story that Sandra Robinson is talking about here, where Dr. Taylor "moves things along" for J&M. To me, that seems like a slap in the face to the characters (and the fans). Why not let J&M reunite without someone else in the middle? Why hire a new blond psychiatrist to move along the J&M story? I hold Higley responsible for the storylines, and right now, they're terrible.
She's not the only HW, Ellie. Whitesell is there too and Tomlin is very active in story. I keep seeing Higley being the only one targeted and that is unfair. Very little of what is going on right now is Higley and I will leave it at that.
And you keep citing Nicole as a new character? How? Yes, she just returned but she was on from 1998-2006 and wasn't even gone that long. She's hardly a new face.
