The promo is so revolting I laughed at the absurdity of the gross factor of this whole promo. Thank GOD that Nicole will be free of these tacky people soon!

I miss Alice, but thankfully she is RIP and not forced to endure this travesty. It is discusting that her house is being inhabited by the worthless Jenn and that the remnants of her family are involved with the pervert.

I might be terribly wrong, but I am under the impression that most people couldn`t care less about Jennifer and Daniel. From what I have read, there isn`t really much interest in this pairing whatsoever.

Am I wrong? Is there something I`m missing?

There must be some interest in them somewhere. Has to be.

Salem needs Jack Deveraux. Bring Back Matthew Ashford.

^The only place I see most pro-Dannifer support is on the Days Facebook page. Every other board I visit they are mostly despised (yes they have a few fans on the boards but nothing overwhelming). I think the fact it's clear Jack (and Nicole's baby) was killed for these two idiots to get together is where most of the hatred comes from. But we all know that Days takes hate as an emotion and that means they're getting a reaction - hence the decision to push them forward. I would honestly like to know what their appeal is because even if I didn't hate them before the way others have been sacrificed to try and sell them as "true love" :rolleyes: makes them completely unrootable (and disgusting) to me. It's not like they're two new characters with no previous history..you can't erase a 20 yr love story anymore than you can pretend Daniel doesn't sleep with all his patients etc

Ugh can't believe they sacrificed Jack and Nicole's baby for these two. Days is so out of touch with what the audience WANTS to see. Does anyone even like Dannifer? lol
The funniest thing to me is that there still seem to be people out there who are convinced that Jack was not killed for Daniel and Jennifer. HELLO!! How can anyone not see that? Jack dies and they are pimping Dannifer within an hour. :fp2:

My view is that Tomlin likes Dannifer and that's all that matters to him. He came back bent on putting everything back to the way it was in the summer of 2011. He's determined to restore the show to basically the way he had it -- come hell or high water or Daysaster or whatever. There are some exceptions. For example, Kristen, John and Marlena were imposed on him by Sony. And PR bowed out pretty much because TomSell returned, so GT was forced to write some kind of exit story. Otherwise, he's writing for himself. As long as he likes it -- and as long as someone in the NBC executive offices approves of it -- he'll continue to write for Dannifer, and it really doesn't matter what the viewers think.

The negativity from viewers likely will get to the network folks before it ever fazes Tomlin. Our only hope is that they will start to overrule him once the ratings go low enough. Then again, that's what they did to MarDar last year and look what that got us. So, unfortunately, there isn't much hope as long as we've got cynical, uncaring executives and decision-makers in charge of this show.

Seriously the Dannibore pimping started the second Jack died. It couldn't be more obvious that they killed off Jack to pair Tan and Jenbitch up.

Instead they should have sent off Dannibore together if that's the pairing TomSell wanted and kept Jack while bringing on a new woman for him.

That doesn't surprise me that much. I actually saw a comment on Days FB page the other day that stated that Jennifer mourned Jack both now AND when he was in Afghanistan :shrug: and that she was nothing but a loving wife to him since he came back (and this was a serious post).

But I don't know how anyone can't see it - especially the Jack part. Dannifer hadn't shared a scene in 6 months and suddenly they're on daily and are all about each other again but it's just a coincidence because now they have a lost spouse in common (not that it ever comes up). If Jack had been there for all this Nicole stuff there's no way Daniel could swoop in as her hero - and that is why Jack was killed off because having him just apart from her wouldn't stop him from wanting to protect her (and I'm sure he wouldn't be manipulating Nicole to run away with him to do it).

There used to be several proDannifer people here. I'm not one, but I can't say I blame them for not posting here.

Oh the Days Facebook page ... home of the blind and braindead viewer. Yeah, that's harsh but I call it as I see it. Danho wasn't even in Jennifer's orbit until Jack died, then all of the sudden his "feelings" for her were back and he was willing to shove Nicole off to the side. Anyone who doesn't have their head in the sand should be able to see that Jack and Nicole's baby boy were killed off for this useless and unpopular couple.

I checked out the Days FB page and Dannifer fans are not posting there either in the numbers they were last Fall. While there are several anti-Nicole, pro-Jennifer, and pro-Daniel references (including the usual "Daniel is hot, hot, hot" line), the actual pro-Dannifer posts are few in number and muted in expression. Some say they used to be pro-Dannifer until Jennifer chose Jack. Others are in favor of Daniel with Jennifer over Nicole -- at least until Chloe comes back. Pretty muted on Twitter, too, from what I can see.

So, unfortunately, there isn't much hope as long as we've got cynical, uncaring executives and decision-makers in charge of this show.

T&W are their own biggest fans, and they've got the severest case of RHH (Returning Headwriter Hubris) I've seen in years. It's blindingly obvious who their favorites are because they get endlessly pimped and propped, while their non-favorites get killed off, sent out of town, back-burnered, or otherwise marginalized. Even if their non-favorites are loved by the audience--the core audience, not the hypothetical hip young viewers the network is vainly trying to woo.

Daniel is clearly one of their golden boys, along with Rafe, and I find it telling that T&W haven't undone one of the MarDar twists that was universally loathed and derided by viewers: making him Maggie's stolen egg baby. That ridiculous development they've kept, and made even worse by having Daniel suddenly calling Maggie "Mom" all the time. Ironically, I actually approved of his calling her "Maggie"--because he already had a mom who loved and raised him, and that designation rightfully belonged to her, not some woman who'd unknowingly donated an egg--especially since that donor egg shouldn't even have been viable back then, because the reproductive technology just wasn't that advanced.

As far as the waning popularity of Dannifer goes--if they were ever all that popular to begin with--I just wonder whether GT has a bigger hard-on for them or Danloe. Because whichever pair he favors will most likely be the one he goes for. Not sure why viewers are assuming Chloe's already gone by the time the anti-Dannifer JJ apparently arrives in Salem--the length of NB's stay is still unknown. And JJ's hostility could provide Dr. Douche with a no-fault excuse for dumping Jennifer for the seventh, eighth, or ninety-ninth time and pursuing his younger, hotter ex-wife.

That doesn't stop other fans of less popular pairings from posting. I just don't think there are many Dannifer fans around.
