Pease and Shaughnessey weren't fired at the same time either.

I do feel for J&M fans. This exit does seem rushed. It really should have been bigger and better.
I do see why DAYS doesn't want to focus too much on J&M before the exit. It makes sense. They probably know they are going to lose a lot of viewers when they leave so why build up the show and make it rely on J&M if you are just going to write them out? I am not saying it's what I would do, but I could see, from the show's standpoint, why they are doing it.
I don't know if I would write a huge exit for them either (on my blog I would, but a blog and the real thing...so different LOL), but their final week would definitely be dedicated to lots of flashbacks and tributes, if I were writing it! I'm not sure why they are not giving J*M fans that, at least.
You're right, that's how they think. The problem with that is that instead of sending them off with happy fans they send them off with pissed off fans. Wouldn't you think it would be better to send off fans with a positive experience, if you ever hope to get that viewer back or at least know that they might tell others they know that Days did them proud by sending their favorites off with a good ending? When I stop watching Days I will not be happy. I will not have a good feeling about Days or NBC. I will tell anyone who will listen to not invest in Days or NBC. Is that really what they want?
At least they're leaving together which is more than Kim and Shane fans got.
