Thank you! Jen/Dan, Rafe/Sami/EJ - it's a all a reset of 2011. Only it didn't work then and it ain't working now. Only it's worse now because of all the characters that were sacrificed for this reset.

Yes I would love to see Tomlin get fired. Lets get a headwriter who's willing to write for the entire cast and not just his favorites.
The only regular characters who do not seem to have much of a story or are seldom seen nowadays are Abe, Kate, Lucas and Roman and that apparently changes soon for Kate. For a cast with around 30 regular characters, I think it is quite the accomplishment that so many cast members have an active story, regardless if fans like that story or not. I also think it dispels any notion that these writers are only writing for their favorites, unless 90% of the cast qualifies as being a favorite of the writers.
IMHO, the fact that they are writing the SAME DAMN STORIES that they were writing before they got fired, featured the SAME DAMN FEW is what makes it a favoritism issue IMHO. For example if they were writing a story with Kate and Lucas running a company to compete with CW, or they were writing a story for Nicole and Rafe, or they were writing a story for Daniel away from Jennifer, then I could see what your trying to say. But they are back and they put the show exactly where it was story wise at the time Tomlin got fired. It was heavily suspected at the time that they would go with a gay storyline but Wabi would sleep together before he was willing to come out to the world and then they'd have to deal with her pregnancy after he was out. Same with Dannifer.....Daniel was shown to be very much into Jen, Jen was shown to be very much into Dan and their relationship would have continued to escalate if it was not for TOmlin getting the boot. We are back to them fawning over one another....and now guess who returns? Chloe, who conveniently got fired when Tomlin did.....
Notice how I didn't even mention what occurred with Ejami/Safe.....but you get my drift.
