True, I only found out because I was off from work one day randomly and was flipping channels. Just so happened Lindsay was on standing on the pier. Took me abt 30 seconds to realize I was watching Days, lol. I thought at first NBC had resserected Passions! :P

i am a new member and here is my 2 cents worth . just think if days hired the 2 most popular actors that were leads from every soap which was on the air for the last 15 years !
It has already been proven that fans don't follow their favorites to other soaps.
Crystal Chappell's return didn't bring the Otalia or GL fans to DAYS.
Maura West didn't bring the ATWT fans to Y&R.
Kim Zimmer didn't bring the GL fans to OLTL.
Lindsay Hartley didn't bring the Passions fans to DAYS or AMC.
Lindsay brought me back (though I was a Days fan pre-EJ and pre-Passions) and I tuned into AMC when she went there (never watched any soap besides Days/Passions before that). But I do agree on a grand-scale, the fans don't follow their faves and it's a waste of time to hire so-called "ratings-grabbers".
I think the amount of fans that move with there favourites depends on the amount of exposure and promotion the soap does to let fans know of the transition... when LH came on to Days, none of my friends knew. From what I remember, they didn't do much to hype up her return to her Passions castmates so how will the fans from Passions know to watch Days? LH did do a couple of magazine articles but who reads print anymore? it's all about the web and tv.
Now we have twitter which helps alot but back 3-4 years ago, twitter either didn't exist or wasn't as big as it is now.
