"My heart will always be in Salem. Wanted to say thank you to all my fans for your support. I would also like to say thank you to [DAYS] for letting Mia stay around in Salem longer than expected and for that I am grateful.

That’s why airing encore presentations on Wednesday night was so great, because it doubled our total audience for the week."
