    I don’t think I have seen anything she is done but she is beautiful and will make a great Abby.

      AGREED. And, I also feel your disappointment. I hear you. All of you!!
      Besides Underwood, there are so many other actresses who could have definitely fit the bill.
      However, as is my nature, i’d like to give anyone a shot. Then, critique…LOL.

        I haven’t seen her in any other roles either, so I hope she will make a great Abigail, BUT, will anyone else notice the new Abbey has BLUE EYES???

    I am very disappointed they didn’t get Brittany Underwood. You’d think TPTB would want someone with daytime experience to take on this critical role. But, welcome and the very best of luck to Marci Miller.

      Just because you’ve got experience in daytime does not mean you are qualified for the part, and IMHO, Brittany is not experienced or qualified enough for the demand of Abigail Deveraux. I have a feeling Marci Miller is going to be great!

        Me too and she is working that vamp look.. She looks a bit like Elizabeth Hendickson Chloe on Y&R.. and more like a better replacement for Jen Lilley

      Marci Miller more than likely went through several screen tests before being chosen for the role. I am going to give her the benefit of the doubt until I see how she does.

    We’ll see. I was never a fan of Mansi in the role anyway. Nor am I a fan of the characters of Jennifer, Abigail, or JJ. Definitely willing to give Marci a chance.

    No, no, no, no. Kate please come back you’re the best!

    • Mary

      June 1, 2016 at 6:19 pm

      Kate Mansi has made her decision. She doesn’t want to be type cast. In Hollywood, for some reason, it’s very difficult for actors in daytime to get cast in films. There’s a hierarchy in the industry; first is film, second is mainstream television and in third place is daytime.

    • Jim Preston

      She chose to vacate the role – to pursue other avenues. Whoever this new gal is she will have some big shoes to fill.

  5. Lance

    Great another newbie, lol. Brittany Underwood ex Langston OLTL should be the new Abigail. Good luck to the new actress, because she will need it. Days is a big, mess right now.

    • Susan

      June 1, 2016 at 6:20 pm

      One small problem, Brittany Underwood was not considered.

      • Celia

        June 2, 2016 at 5:11 am

        Lol, Susan. I don’t think anyone said Underwood was considered. But, many of us suggested she’d be perfect for the role. My personal preferences were, actually, the original Colleen on Y&R, Lyndsy Fonseca or Kelley Missal of OLTL (Dani).

    Never seen her work. Hope she can act. She’s got gorgeous blue eyes. Good luck to her.

    Good luck! Can’t wait to see you!

    WOW, she is pretty!

    • Celia

      June 1, 2016 at 4:24 pm

      Right? She reminds me a little of a younger Sharon Case.

      • Dori

        June 1, 2016 at 7:00 pm

        I agree!

      • Timmm

        June 2, 2016 at 6:02 am

        With a dash of Mischa Barton from the O.C.

      • Celia

        June 2, 2016 at 12:22 pm

        Yes, yes, Timmmy. I can definitely see that.

    have to pray to the soap gods… on this

    ” I pray…. just pray… that she can ACT !

    I pray… just pray… that she has chemistry with Billy Flynn”


    ie: couldn’t find any thing… to show… for her work… except for the indie preview “dog bowl”

    she films nice…

    I so want this to work….

    Billy Flynn is Days Leading Man

  10. Tim

    June 1, 2016 at 1:11 pm

    According to her IMDB page she plays the title character in a movie called About Abigail.

    Her eyes are beautiful. 😉

  12. Marie

    June 1, 2016 at 1:24 pm

    Wish her all the best and look forward to her stepping into the roll of Abby. Hope fans will give her a chance

  13. Jimh(leave it to beaver)

    June 1, 2016 at 1:44 pm

    I do not know what to think….from the pose/expression she looks like she would be a little bit villainy-maybe a Teressa replacement…but she is Abby…we will see this fall how she fits with Billy/Chad…if he decides to ever leave i think it would be too hard to replace him-he so owns that role now…jmho!!!

    • Mo

      June 2, 2016 at 4:40 am

      I would love for Billy Flynn to leave. I have never liked him as Chad.

  14. Eso

    June 1, 2016 at 3:12 pm

    Wanted a bigger diva who was on soaps before

    • Mary

      June 1, 2016 at 6:21 pm

      I’m going to reserve judgement.

  15. blake

    June 1, 2016 at 4:10 pm

    She’s beautiful, but can she act? We don’t need another Ciara!

    • Shell

      June 1, 2016 at 5:21 pm

      Speaking of Ciara. I am not a fan of the Ciara/Chad storyline. I find it creepy. I’m sad to read the new Abigail won’t debut until the fall. I was hoping it would be soon so she could put Ciara in her place. I don’t think I can stomach seeing a long, drawn out romance emerge between Chad and Ciara. I’m not sure I will keep watching Days.

      • Celia

        June 1, 2016 at 7:23 pm

        I know, Shell. Ciara is barely out of diapers… It seems like yesterday that she was what? Eight? LOL.
        I think it’s sick. Other than the fact that she’s still a kid, one would think that after such a traumatic ordeal such as rape, any intimacy would be repelling….like a leper’s touch. What are these writers thinking?

      • nancy dillingham

        June 7, 2016 at 5:53 am

        Yes, bad move re Chase and Ciara–W-A-Y too soon, anyway!

      • nancy dillingham

        June 7, 2016 at 5:55 am

        Oops, make that CHAD and Ciara–:)

      • Carissa

        July 25, 2016 at 3:37 am

        Yes, I so agree! Chad and Ciara story is ridiculous. There has been too many of those back when Abby first started and she thought she lived Austin. Abby and ejs affair, and the last one was jj and eve. We don’t need another one of those !!

    • dmr

      June 2, 2016 at 7:59 am

      I have said from day one, when TPTB recast cute little Chase and Ciara, that
      nu-Ciara did not have the skillset for this role. Given the current storyline, and the seriousness of the topic, I think its even more apparent. There was no reason to recast the smaller generation of kids. The teenage scene is not cutting it for this (past) viewer and I no longer DVR the show. The acting is awful and the storylines are beyond dreadful.

      • blake

        June 5, 2016 at 4:42 pm

        I agree, I can no longer support and defend Days anymore. And my favorite actors keep leaving it too and they only get vets back for one or a few episodes now because they can’t afford it.

    I’ll be wearing white for Marci Miller’s debut, in celebration of Abby’s return!

  17. Angelo

    June 1, 2016 at 6:09 pm

    She is pretty, but can she act? Let’s give her a chance. If she fails, I can play the role of Abigail. I will put on a wig, high heels and make up lol. I am very sexy, with a smooth body, very passable as a woman. I am Italian and do drag shows part time. I have full lips, with a nice smile. Call me Days, if you need me .

  18. Mary SF

    It is hard to judge by just a photo— she looks a bit too old for the role and too exotic looking to be the girl next door type that Abby was, but I am willingly to give her a shot. I don’t care if she doesn’t have daytime experience because daytime is getting a bit incestuous with the same big names hopping from one show to the next, so I am glad to see some new blood come onto the scene, yet will reserve final judgement once I see her in the role.

  19. Jamie

    June 1, 2016 at 6:56 pm

    After Thursday’s episode, I do not think Ciara and Chad will have a romance. She mighty go fatal attraction on him!!! But- hey, that’s what he gets for moving the teenager in the house at break neck speed. Can you tell I am disappointed in that story?
    Anyway!! I am excited! She appears cute and beautiful. Her reel shows talent. It was a great run with mansi but I say welcome to the crazy world of Salem miss Miller. They obviously took their sweet time with the casting so I think she and mr. Flynn will be magic together.

  20. Tim S.

    June 1, 2016 at 7:56 pm

    well it took the casting people a long time to find her… This will say a lot about them if she is the right actress. Glad they did not rush it and waited for the right one. Time will tell. .lots of pressure on these folks who hired her..

    Um…Sarah Buxton circa 1997?

    I am very disappointed, I love days but Kate mansi made Abby and is Abby the character won’t be the same without her , the shoes of Abby cannot be filled by anyone but Kate mansi! If she can’t play it, Abby’s character would be better off getting killed off! First ej, Sami , and now Abby . I feel like this could ruin days of our lives forever! ☹️

    I really never got the obsession over her character,except the love Chad and her had.So I welcome the new girl hopefully the writers don’t mess up her only good role loving Chad.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
