If Days is going off the air, why are they hiring new people and firing old favorites????
Who says they are going off the air? The show is in much better shape now then it was a year ago, most notably in the financial area of things. That is why they got rid of vets. They cost too much and you can only cut salaries so much. It's much more cost effective to get rid of some of them entirely and hire cheaper actors to come on. In many cases, the salary of one vet is worth like 3 newcomers. Not to mention, bringing on new characters is easier on the writers. Some of the vets were in the same stories over and over and that was not all on the writing team. That is all some of the fanbases wanted. The show no longer feels held back now.

So many keep assuming 2010 is the end, just like so many thought 2009 would be the end. If the show could survive the last few contract negotiations, it can survive the next. Let's remember there is a one year option for the show that NBC can pick up to that is built into the contract. Given the current state of things and how popular Days is a brand, it's in fine shape to remain on past 2010 IMO.
