Ed Scott worked a miracle and was fired for his efforts. But he may get the last laugh—and an Emmy to boot.Scott took over the exec producer reins at Days of Our Lives in 2007, turning a show that was close to unbearable and threatened with cancellation into a true contender.Not only did Days end 2008 as the only soap to gain viewers, it’s currently nominated for 13 Daytime Emmys—the most for any soap this year.

I have no strong opinion on Scott vs Tomlin but that's just inaccurate. Scott's final week of episodes (Sept 15, 2008) drew a 1.8 and 7th place and- Olympic weeks excepted- ratings were terrible during his final 2-3 months. To speak of DOOL "ending 2008 as the only soap to gain viewers" when another EP was in charge for Oct.-Dec. is misleading journalism on Logan's part.
It is very misleading journalism, the ratings under ES last summer were the lowest in Days history. Like or hate Tomlin's tenure as EP, the ratings only started to improve in October. The real turn around occured in late December/January. The plane crash sequence was excellent, but a lot of younger viewers like myself were turned off by his treatment of Philip & Chloe and especially throwing Chloe into a "romance" with Lucas while ignoring her history with Brady.
