I think they have a golden opportunity right now to bring fanbases together and rebuild a general audience because the reaction to the firings has actually helped things a bit, imho. There's a more general rallying cry of "just have good writing, assholes," with less of an emphasis on specific couples. I'm curious whether TPTB can leverage that.

They have to get the GA back; they are the ones that will put this show back on the map. The fanbases think they have the power but the donít because there are not enough of them. Rafe & Sami, Ej & Sami and Lucas & Sami fans arenít going to keep DAYS on the air, but instead of watching and enjoying a fictional show they would rather bitch about it constantly and wonder why the show is gone. It takes a combination of factors to have a great show, good actors, good writers, and great fans to accept the show!
The fanbases all are acting like a bunch of babies, pouting in the corner, sucking their thumbs, stomping their feet, and screaming because they arenít getting their way. PLEASE people grow up, and enjoy the show and if you are that dissatisfied with the show then stop watching and yes I include myself in on this! You have NO idea what the new writers are going to do, so give it a chance you might like it, and if not then bitch! You might surprise yourself! :frustration:
I want DAYS to stay on the air, so I'm willing to see what the future brings!
I'm also curious how they can sell this latest writing regime change in a way that would lure more general audience viewers in. Those ratings are awful. But how do you promote the idea that the show is going to get better when you just did that a year ago (well, that was the latest time, anyway) and failed to follow through?
Again I'm thinking they may have to leverage the social networks developing as a reaction to the latest firings. But...it's a tricky situation.
