I really hope non eof my faves go because if they do then the show will not be enjoyable for me any more. I love watching but without the people I tune in to see well what wouldbe the point?

Come On Days! Do not make me upset I really want I keep watching I really do.

ugh this doesn't sound good. i really hope the DH's aren't let go again.

I do think Matt and Missy might be let go. Maybe Suzanne Rogers and John Aniston? Carrie and Austin will prolly be leaving Salem too.

but John is recurring and they barely use him, they'd need to get rid of expensive contract cast.

Maybe a better way to see this is who's contract are up this fall?

Meng: I don't know. I think it's a beautiful story and we are committed to it. But probably it's not the story that most women are going to tune in for every day, the one they don't want to miss. I think it's a story everybody likes, but the women want to see romance. Our goal is to get back lapsed viewers our family of viewers who stopped watching altogether or aren't watching us every day.
this is where I am. The coming out story is ok. I do have some problems with it like I don't get Will as a character but Sonny is very endearing. Even as sweet as Sonny can be, it's not enough to get me to tune in to the show. I need something that keeps me tuning in, a romantic sexy couple connecting on different levels. Sonny and Will are nice but they are just too young.
This is the only reason why I am watching the show. Will is a great character who can't remain the cookie-cutter type he has portrayed almost continuously. There needs to be depth and I think the show has given him that since last November. He dealt with his mother's betrayal, better than Sami has for the last 20 years, and he is dealing with coming-out. That is a lot and I think the show has done an amazing job.

I will be sooooo angry if they decide to conform and get rid of the storyline. Who needs more couples like Bradison screwing each other when Wilson is the closest we have to what could be a great couple. All the 80s supercouples were around this age when they started and that was fine; so I have no problem with Wilson. This show has gotten so much positive press and coverage since the storyline started. Days/NBC should think about that and not about shipping crappy couples...ahem Safe, Racole, Dannifer (thankfully not anymore), Dillie, Bradison, etc.

There are only 2 people that I would be shocked to see let go: Gering and Sweeney, since TBTB seem to think the sun shines out of their asses. Anyone else wouldn't surprise me in the least.

I think many older viewers feel this way about any of the younger couples. I get it but don't necessarily agree. I think told properly Will and Sonny can be just as compelling a couple as an older couple.

I wonder if James Scott is also a possibility as another one that gets cut.

I somehow don't think that they'd get rid of Dee and Drake again....but Matt and Missy..I do think are targets. I just hope BD isn't on the list....
I don't think they will fire Drake and Deidre either. I will be surprised if Matt and Missy AREN'T fired.

I don't think James Scott will go.

yeah...I get this feeling of gloom and doom as in their going to fire a bunch of vets and whatever happens to 'kill' them off or something will air the day before the Olympics start...then on the Monday they come back viewers find out who's dead and who's not....problem is.....that by August we'll know the actors that have been fired....the show being this far ahead is really the problem here more than anything else. Same thing happened with the reset.

Mass firings won't surprise me in the least. The cast is too big, and I never understood how the show was affording all these returnees.

My hope is that a lot of actors are going to be recurring status but I fear they are going to get rid of a lot of people. :shame: Wish they would get rid of GG/Rafe first but I'm not holding my breath. :hmmph:

The DOOL cast is way too bloated, so I agree cuts are needed.......

I really wish they'd stop shooting so far ahead - it's 3 months ahead and that's WAY too far ahead.

I don't care if Drake Hogestyn is cut but leave Deidre Hall alone. I don't care if they kill John off again.

No he is trying to say romance is what viewers want to see but not romance between two gay guys. Disgusting and so unbased.

Didn't like that article at all. Major firings coming and it sounds like the gay story of Will and Sonny is gonna be run out the door. I don't see any reason to watch anymore. This is going to get even worse that it is now.
The gay storyline is easily TOAST! I mean, you could argue that Tomlin, Whitesell, and company could continue writing something for it but I can also see them saying why bother? MarDar didn't do a whole lot with it so they can just drop it and focus on creating new stories.

I think we need to get people to call in and get support for both Matthew Ashford and Bryan Datillo! They have gotten great reviews and positive feedback for being on the show. Its not like we don't see MA and forget he is on the show; we keep complaining that they are not giving him airtime. He should be commended for his brilliant PTSD storyline that they have dropped. Instead, they made us sit through weeks of Dannifer saying goodbye to each other. :x

Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn have gotten the shaft too. Especially Drake with the stupid Alamania story. At least Hall has been apart of Will's coming-out story and that has been great. I do think she needs to have a storyline involving just her or at least the DHs together.

These people need to go: Shawn Christian, Molly Burnett, Camilla Banus, Galen Gering, Lisa Rinna, Eric Martsolf, Sarah Brown...don't let the down hit you on the way out.
