Well I guess I will be soap hunting, my two fav actors fired? SianaraNBC put a bunch of young actors on in an attempt to get younger viewers to watch. Guess what? You're not getting the new viewers and you're alienating the fans. Marlena and John, Patch and Kayla, Bo and Hope--that's what people want.
And it's not that I'm opposed to having some younger couples. Sometimes they do work out, because the characters are already interesting (i.e., Sami.) Stephanie, Max, Chelsea? Boring!
