I remember people remarking that daytime was dead after Y&R first fell below a 6.0. That was back in 2000. Sure, they're still alive now, but most are barely breathing :(

DAYS ratings were not so steady at all.

DAYS lost 30% of its audience during Tom Langan. And it never got them back either.

Eh, still. I was one of the viewers that enjoyed the teen stuff, since I was a teen for most of that time. I really don't see why so many people hate Tom Langan.

PF - I could have given him a chance and tolerated the teen stuff if that had not been the whole emphasis. It was the same problem I had with this year and Hogan.

Under Langan during the teen invasion Days became a different show. I know that there has to be changes from time to time but when a writer comes on and changes a show to the point you no longer recognize it or feel like you are watching a new show then something is wrong.

Under Langan I felt like I was watching a daytime version of Saved By The Bell.

Hogan has done the same thing. I don't have a show to compare it too, but it is a nuDays even now with the balance somewhat restored and stuff. It still doesn't feel like Days to me when I watch. As bad as Reilly and Higley were I still felt like I was watching Days.

With Langan and now with Hogan it didn't feel that way. That is the biggest reason I think you have seen the big ratings falls during both tenures.
