Ironically the day of the "reveal" got the highest ratings.

This is what happens when viewers stop getting invested in storylines, couples and characters. What's the point? Days destroys every storyline, every couple and every character viewers get invested in. There is no joy, no focus on families or true love. They do the Einstein's definition of insanity - "the same thing over and over again and expecting different results".
ITA...and the WTFery of a fake reveal killed Monday's ratings. I read the east coast pbp and took it off my dvr & didn't watch it once I found out it was a fake. I caught portions of it on YT so the idiot show runners wouldn't get any credit for putting out that kind of effort & pr into something that didn't even move the story forward. There were tons of others on twitter that did the same. It' so sad and it makes AS & JS look like geniuses for jumping ship before it gets any worse.
Except that they liked it and promoted it...

This was the beginning of sweeps, so it definitely isn't good, but there wasn't much promotion for the main story of the week. I'll be interested to see how the next two weeks are. Maybe, just maybe, that low in the demographics will help us get a new writer.
Be careful what you wish for lol. The ones we have now are once that were fired already. With our luck they'll rehire Dena.
Ha! I don't think if can get worse for me. But at the very least I might have hope again.

How about new writers and a new exec producer? I do believe a lot of these crap storylines are de Cozette's doing. Granted the writing stinks, but so do many of the ideas.

EJAMI has been one of the main reasons this ship has been sinking quality wise for the last 6 years...so yes I am glad they are jumping ship too...I can finally get my damn soap back.

There is one reason the ratings are down. It's not EJami or EJabby or any of this. It's Fetch. Whenever Fetch are on the front burner, ratings go down. This has been consistent for a long time. What's in common of all the great sweeps periods of 2013? Barely any Fetch. You'd think the writers would get a clue.

Dannifer are boring as hell and I hate their guts, but they haven't proven to be ratings killers. I think this is the first time the ratings have really tanked when they were heavily featured. I do think the combination of EJami and Dannifer is brutal and really hard to watch though. The whole show has been a bore for a couple of months now. There's a lot of blame to be passed around.

Jennifer/Daniel/Chloe last year was a ratings killer too.

:cheer: ICAM. I love EJ but I can't take more Ejami shoved down my throat so if they both gotta jump ship so be it. Maybe just maybe once they are gone, they can finally start paying attn to Jarlena! We last saw John 2 months ago it seems.

And if by chance they get new writers, can we please get a team that likes Lucas??? :frustration: It baffles me that he continually gets shunned in favor of Rafe and Dr Orangeglo.

The trouble with taping so far ahead is they can't change something when it is not working.
