Daniel/Chloe? Max/Chelsea?

Is this REALLY supposed to make people want to watch, on Christmas week, no less? LoL
Why not? This atleast feels fresh and like the show really moved on. New couples, new stories, new era.

I think having the same people in the promo for twenty years still not able to reunite is not exactly the best way how to lure in new viewers.

I think it's almost impossible to lure in new viewers at this point. Life is too busy for most people to devote 5 hours a week to one television show, regardless of how well-written it is. Not to mention that people can find much more sophisticated storytelling elsewhere these days, because Lord knows 95% of the material daytime has to offer is a bunch of stale garbage.

The best chance they have at any kind of success is wooing back lapsed viewers from the past who have find memories of John/Marlena, Bo/Hope, etc. The vast majority of viewers -- even the new viewers -- have no interest in Daniel/Chloe or any of the other gag-o-licious new pairings.
This something I really donīt agree with. For years now Iīm most interested in the stories for the so called newbies or "B" characters while I usually yawn through the vets. The vets are played and done. I love to watch new romances grow, I love to watch stories when the outcome is not clear, I love to watch characters fighting with the obstacles when the ostacles have a real chance to destroy them.

Just look at the EJ/Nicol/Rafe/Sami/Brady story. Exactly how Higley said. it has so many possible outcomes. And the best thing is I can only quess, while if the same story featured some of the vet supercouple the whole story would be reduced just into frustrating waiting till the truth is revealed and the supercouple reunites.

Replaying the same story with the same characters for 20 years is not the best kind of entertaiment. Jarlena were fighting to be together 15 years ago. Do you honestly think someone will tune in to the show if she/he sees a promo where they STILL arenīt together? For me it just show how worthless and pointless watching the show is.
