Higley never hit a .8 in the key demos ever.
As for backstage, Meng doesn't impress me never has. I am not saying Tomlin was perfect but his production model is the same one Valentini gets kudos for. Any EP can bring back out of work fan faves and fire others but I am not noticing any groundbreaking changes in his production style or storytelling and he's likely lasted this long because he's a Corday yes man. Ed Scott who didn't have a successful reign showed more innovation than Meng but then Scott also learned from Bill Bell.
I am not a huge Valentini fan but his production style gives the illusion of faster pace. Better music, shorter scenes, split scenes gave OLTL a more contemporary feel. And a lot of the camp fit OLTL. It amazes me how the man that likely saved this show from cancellation and got it a renewal to 2013 and a potential 2014 pickup is constantly lambasted.
