The overall balance for 2007 so far is not at all satisfying, even though it may have improved slightly the last couple of months.

It is a wise idea to have some rotation in character focus.

For example I think it would do the show good to backburner Sami/EJ/Lucas for a while.

2007 isn't over yet. We still have December that could balance that list a little more.

Unfortunately there are too big gaps between the character groups, so December wont have the possibility of making so much difference.

Hopefully the show learns from this year though and improves for 2008.

It seems to me the show has concentrated on and will continue to concentrate on stories for the top 15 or so players. It's just a guess, but the show may be trying to streamline the ensemble for exportation to a new address. This would take into consideration overall payroll too, I would expect.

Or, it could be this HW is just "stuck" on the top 15.

I do agree balance is good. The show has to do a better job of airing A-type stories and B stories. Combing two B stories for a whole day or most of a week is bad for ratings...as we have seen.

Thanks to Jason for compiling these statistics.

Meh. We've had worse Episode Rankings in the past. Still too much Sami & EJ. It is nice though not to have Shawn & Belle as #1 & #2 for the yearly total like years past.

My feeling exactly.

That doesn't excuse it because the balance for about 8-9 months out of this year as dreadful but it has been worse and is worse for others. Not excusing it. Just saying.

I also agree that it seems like the top 15 (and by that I am counting all the ties too) or so characters are who they show is going to primarily focus on, meaning anyone below that will probably seem minimal time. I think it's just a way of helping finances and using who they think is the most important to use.

I liked the fact the younger set was knocked down this month all were under 10.
