Well, since the viewership has gone up on DAYS since last year and it is the only soap to increase viewers this past year, I would say they ARE getting the desired results-- more viewers.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
They have not pushed EJ too far to the dark side at all. He's actually not been there for a while. He's been more his usual "gray" self, and he's been hurt and wronged by everyone he loves - Sami, Nicole and still unknown to him, his father.
IMO the thing about Rafe is that no matter what they try to do with his character he doesn't sell for a lot of people outside of NBC. He just flops as a character, and the more they keep him the more agravating he gets. I enjoyed him a bit with Nicole and the couple of funny lines he had in the Meredith scenes, but that's about it. No doubt they wrote him for Sami, but they are just not getting the desired results. People are actually enjoying the show when he's on less and away from Sami.
Who is enjoying the show more when Rafe is off and when he is away from Sami? And where was that said? That may be an opinion, but I doubt it is published fact anywhere. I am sure the ejami fans are enjoying it more b/c they want him off the show period so Sami and Ej can reunite. There are many who like Rafe and like Sami and him together. IMO he has brought a lot to the show. The writers are developing his character more and more and I think we will continue to see it develop in the future.
I think they did write him for Sami and they are getting the desired results. SAFE is a very popular couple in many published polls.
Apparently they are not getting the desired results (I did mention not to count NBC, which is mostly a Safe board, and before that it was mostly a Lumi board and Ejami fans were allowed there only on principle and suspended for mearly breathing while others were allowed (and still are) to pretty much verbally assault them). Not many here like them, and certainly not many at Sony. And as for the polls, if you are referring to SOD, before Safe, Ejami won for weeks at a time, and they didn't even share screen time together. We didn't get Ejami yet, and Safe's been on for a year now, so pretty soon we may be looking at Cafe as a new couple. I might actually enjoy that....
