They're getting panned by us. They DO have a fanbase and a following.
They are not just getting panned by us...the only support I have seen for them is on facebook...that is it.

They are universally panned by ALL soap media as well.

They are by far the most disliked pairing on the show.
I agree that they're terrible, but I don't agree that they're as disliked outside of here. We go through this every few weeks. Not having a good online presence isn't the same as not having fans. My guess is that in one of their other ways of gathering feedback, they must be popular.
They were universally declared the worst couple on soaps by all of the soap media. That is being panned by everyone. Of course out of 3 million people watching the show they have a couple thousand fans, but I mean...yeah we aren't in the minority here.

I'm not sure that we aren't the minority. Daysofourlives.about.com had a poll asking people if Daniel and Jennifer should be reunited. These were the results... (Spoilered because I can't shrink it on my phone for some reason).
Spoiler: click to toggle


If you take that as an accurate cross section of the audience, which it probably is since it's not a Dannifer fan site or anything... there is an unbelievable amount of support for this pairing.

Personally, I don't get it. I like both characters individually but hate the pairing an unbelievable amount. One person in favor of it seems like too many. But idk- it appears that the haters (including the media) may be a case of very vocal minority.

According to another site that examined the about.com poll, it's highly spammable, so people could vote multiple times. And there have been other polls that have been strongly anti-Fetch--most notably the SOD poll in which Daniel and Jennifer couldn't scrape even 5% of support as a couple. All I'd venture to say is that they appear to be more disliked than liked, and the mainstream soap press has described them as "snoozeworthy" and "forced," which doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement. But whether one loves or loathes Fetch, the writing for them is repetitive and boring. How many times can variations on the same scenario play out before viewers tune out? And Fetch's interlopers crop up every few months, as opposed to every couple of years.

THIS!!! If they absolutely insist on forcing fetch, at least do something-anything-DIFFERENT

Stop throwing other characters under the bus by making them desperate to have one half of fetch for no discernable reason! Stop having people worship them and holding them up as saints! Give them a mystery to solve, give them a constant supply of drugged donuts, give them a frickin animal sidekick to cause mischief so that people who don't like fetch at least have something else to look at when they're on!:

Okay, I'm trying to see the positive here:

* Dan and Jen in the same scenes so more convenient ffwding
* No more "Oh, but [Dan or Jen] you two belong together" pep talks from the Salem chorus. (That's going to cut the dialogue in half. How on earth are they going to fill it?)

Anything else?

No. That's being universally disliked by soap media which mostly consists of a few bloggers (online....and I already addressed online presence) who all have the same opinion on everything. They are terrible together, and their story is horrid. I'd like to stop defending them, but I spend a lot of time asking y'all not to do absolutes on every other facet of the show, and it's no different for them.

They are so much easier to take apart. I'm ready for Jennifer just to be a mother to JJ and Abby, I don't need to see her having a front burner, romantic storyline......let Hope that honor now. Jennifer has been on non stop with her gasping Daniel's name and how nice it was to be given a break from it for a while......why can't they just call it a day with this boring, annoying couple?
Thaaaaank you!!! :hail:

I thought Dr tan is a super hero not scared of anything. what the hell daniel needs to be safe? He's a salem womanizer that loves to sleep with all his patients. I loathed daniel specially his angry look on and off dannifer's relationship. I wish someone would just kill dr cheetos.

I've decided my positive spin on it is that every time there is a Fetch scene, I will:

a) Fast forward my DVR through that crap, and
b) pause the DVR before the next watchable scene and tweet a fact about Jack Deveraux.

It may not be the most elegant protest, but it's what I've got.

The latest SOD has an article about Jennifer and Daniel's reunion.

Jennifer and Daniel's reunion gets off to an awkward start because Jennifer has been dating Liam. Shawn Christian says that Daniel doesn't want to pressure her to break things off.

Jennifer ends up meeting with Liam and explaining, but she's surprised by his reaction. By the end of the week, Jennifer and Daniel are in bed together. Christian says that being with Jennifer is when Daniel feels safest.

Get all the details in the latest SOD!


Whos idea was this? He should have just screwed Theresa when she was "demanding" it. LOL !

It would have been so much painless...

This should be a ratings grabber... what waiting for a sarcasm alert?? LOL

They could be stalked and taken hostage by Liam, and I don't think even that would drive up interest.

I'd be plenty interested in this... if he went ahead and just finished them off for us.

Is this their first reunion without a health scare involved? I barely pay attention.

I just don't understand how TPTB are not aware that no one cares about this couple. I mean they seem to be monitoring fan opinion on everything else; whether or not they react to it, you can tell from how they 'market' things that they know what we're posting and tweeting. But with this, they just continue to go forward seemingly blind to the constant criticism. I mean does anyone like this pairing? Have there been SOD letters about them? None that I've seen. Is this a Corday pet thing maybe?
The only thing I hold out hope for is that they intend to make Dannifer a happy "supercouple" only to have Jack return someday to do the triangle correctly. I still don't understand what happened with MarDar. Jack came back, the triangle started, and then in a handful of awkward scenes Jen and Daniel agreed that they shouldn't be together and the triangle was dropped like a sack of cement mix. Jack and Jen were back-burnered, Daniel had a briefly hinted romance with Billie, and he then wound up in Nicole's orbit. Then the regime changed, Jack was offed on day one, Jen was nowhere to be seen for a month, and then we were off to the races (again) with Dannifer Part II, and it's been an 18-month forced coupling nightmare ever since. The only reprieve has been Jennifer's story with JJ the past few months. But now he is on the bandwagon as well.

I still hold out hope that one day Jack will appear onscreen, and that we will find out that MA has been secretly taping for months. And then we can go through a real triangle story that respects the Jack/Jen history, utilizes Abby and JJ's established presence (and emotional conflict), and adds a character like Eve as a fourth wheel to round things out.

But if a happy Dannifer is the end-game, and story just revolves around a constant stream of failed interlopers (Nicole, Chloe, Nancy, JJ, Theresa, Anne, etc.), while otherwise loveable characters (Maggie, Maxine) continue to pimp the pairing, then count me out.

While I hope for the former--with one caveat, which I'll get to in a moment--I've braced myself to expect the latter, given the current regime's obsession with All Things Daniel Jonas. He's their anointed Gary Stu, which means "all women want him, and all men want to be him," and any legitimate threat to his supremacy must be destroyed so he can flourish unimpeded. Jennifer herself serves no real purpose beyond being Daniel's ticket to legitimacy as a leading man/tentpole character on the show. She's his main sycophant and head cheerleader, whose life has no meaning or purpose unless he's in it. :rolleyes:

I would love to see Jack back someday, and a storyline similar to that you describe. Except that I don't want to endure another Jack/Jennifer/Daniel triangle. Been there, done that, hated it the first go-round, which made me absolutely despise Jennifer, and the last thing I want to see is another cycle of which lovelorn sucker will she bestow her shallow, fickle, indecisive, narcissistic self upon? If there must be a triangle, let it be between Jennifer, AmnesiacJack, and the woman with whom he's spent the intervening years since the DAYSaster and with whom he has a genuine bond that he's not prepared to sacrifice for the faithless wife who couldn't be bothered confirming his death or survival before moving on to another man. Let it be a conflict between Jack choosing his past, which contained as much pain as joy, or choosing his present, which offers a new beginning but could strain his relationships with the family members who want him back. Daniel can go practice medicine in WhoGivesAFuckistan or go on another surfing safari and get eaten by a shark. Too much time and effort has been expended on this bland, generic, poorly defined himbo already.
