Getting rid of John and Marlena was a bad move that could have real negative effects on their ratings.

Recasting them will ensure it.
Well, at the risk of restarting the debate....J&M have been off canvas for a couple of months at a time in the past without any real problem in the ratings. Course, the writing was also better for the other characters at those times, too.
Based on boards I've read, a lot of avid J&M fans quit watching a long time ago. I'll wager general fans will quit watching because of the writing or boredom or real life. I don't attest to the theory that one couple or character makes or breaks ratings in a big way, except for maybe primetime shows BASED on one character or actor.
Anyway, this whole thing is probably a huge rumor and is probably a moot point.
