Frank it also because people like me don’t enjoy the “younger” set and watching it on line or YouTube you don’t have to watch the kids. So its not all about the younger set. The show is much better now and that is because its not the “younger” set 24/7.

It is about the younger set and the veterans. They are all used so well in good stories that honor the shows history. Frank has to be the best soap EP working now if not the best ever.
