You can believe it or not. That's what I heard.

I heard a while ago that NBC wants basically an all new show (like the Next Generation or something like that). Days doesn't care about what was always the basic fabric of the show...family ties, generational stories, super couples, great romances etc. I know some are all excited about this, but it's not even Days of Our Lives anymore. It just any other show.
I don't believe that's what is happening. I think that NBC wants TPTB to focus on the next generation of characters, which isn't anything surprising or new. All of the networks encourage this. I don't think the network is ordering them to fire all of their older characters and introduce new ones. If that was the case, it would've been done years ago when NBC actually had the two other soaps that were favored by the young crowd.
These cuts are all for financial reasons. Tomlin wants to help the budget and he's doing a good job at it. Unforunately, we're losing fan favorites as a result of keeping our show on the air.
