RE: VERY IMPORTANT - Updated Info
As you all know, we've been moving forward full steam ahead with our new goal of younging up ABC Daytime and you've been doing a great job:)
Frank added a big name to his list today by getting rid of Phil Carey. Your bonus check is in the mail, Frank! Way to go!
We've been making a lot of progress, but we still have some work to do. Remember, the viewers want to see NEW characters, not the same one's they've been watching and attached to for decades. They just don't know it yet.
I have some suggestions:
- Julie, do you think we could possibly bump Susan Lucci to recurring status? And then possibly only show her on the phone with Kendall, Josh or Bianca, much in the manner of Chrissy on Three's Company?
- Frank: we can't have Vicki and Dorian, we can only have one or the other. Which one is older? Fire that one.
- Unrelated, but Jill, I think we should look into bringing Courtney back. Maybe she has a twin sister who can get together with Jason, or a cousin on her mother's side who can be Sonny's new love interest. Please let me know what you think.
Thanks for all of your effort and hard work. Pretty soon, we'll have the median ABC Daytime cast age down to 27 and ratings will be through the roof.
