What is your definition of "vet" in this context? Are you considering years on the show or some other criteria?

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
She's had way more time in the spotlight than most of the vets ever did, lol.
It's a business. The promo is there to promote the major story that week and draw in viewers. If the promo gets thousands of hits and the ratings stay consistent, then the TPTB will consider it effective. That is what drives what is on our screens. If showing a promo of a rotting banana pulled in viewers, Sony would show it every week. They could care less about variety or honoring the past or anything other than bringing in enough of the right viewers to command the advertising dollars to keep the show on the air. If the show could do that with a major s/l and non stop promos of (insert character or couple name here) they would do it.
Most of the promos this fall were about the lead up to the Bristen wedding then it switched to the Nick murder. The ratings have been consistent. How is that Sami overkill?
I didn't say it was though, if I still cared, I could put my argument here for why it is. But I don't. All I said is that she's been in the spotlight more than most of the vets. She has.
