Except B&B is not focusing on younger characters for the summer. The show has basically been turned over to the younger cast. Liam, hope, and Steffy have been driving story on this show for over a year now. Caroline and Rick and Amber had a story arc and it looks like Dayzee, Caroline, and Thomas are going to get story. Katie and Bill get less story and Brooke and ridge and Stephanie and Eric the vets are primarily in supporting roles as patriarchs and matriarchs of the show. The show has changed focus from its older to younger cast and it's been that way for a while now just not for the summer. They throw in a few short term stories like the story Crystal Chapprel was brought on for but those stories aren't the drivers for the show.
Yes, they have been focusing on them prior to summer but they are clearly STILL going to be focusing on them during the summer, hence my concern. They aren't just going to backburner them. Therefore, because they are still going to do stories focusing on younger characters, I worry the younger fans they have clearly gained in the past 6 months won't be there in summer like they've been. That's all I'm saying. I hope they are and that the show keeps doing well but recent summer ratings patterns don't make it look very promising. If it crashes in summer, it's no big deal. They will recover in Fall as long as they are still telling good story.
