^^ They still haven't even confirmed Tara's fate -- what's the deal with these people?! This new dude 'Tom' is probably just a fill-in & Tara will slide back in a few months later all clean & ready to go again. Not that I care much about her or anything but the "silence" is really getting on my last *bleep* nerve! If the ratings do nosedive, it will be one of those things like in 'Vegas' where no on will really be sure exactly what made/makes the ratings fall - it could be the loss of Adam, the intro of Jesse, the annoying/overkilled plots, or loyal fans backing out cause they're sick to death of screentime issues. They (tptb) won't be able to pinpoint exactly where the problem is, they'll likely jump shark again to keep up & then it's just going to suck even worse. I think my faith in this show is flying out the window.
