    They can be renewed another year doesnt exactly mean anything…they still can cancel the series…they had done that with prime time shows….of course they might have to pay something…but hopefully they wont and keep the show on…Days is my favorite soap at the moment

    Whatever happened to the renewal requirement a few years back that the filming move closer to the broadcast date?

    • Steve

      March 8, 2018 at 3:38 pm

      While that definitely makes more sense, logistically, it would be hard to do. The whole cast and crew would have to be laid off for 4 months. Or, a gradual schedule of filming fewer episodes for 6 months to a year which would not be budget friendly.

      That was never a requirement for renewal. What NBC stated was that they wish DAYS would shorten it’s tape to air schedule. What NBC neglected to say was DAYS can shorten it if NBC gave more money.

    ??? wasn’t even thinking about .. well… truly… about renewal… I’m always thinking we have until late 2018… add another year

    that’s roughly 19 MORE MONTHS… sounds longer, right ?

    Salute : “Thank You NBC / SONY !!!! ”

    I LOVE this SHOW so much

    Great news! I wish that DOOL would get longer extension, but I will take another year. The one wish is to have more sets. I would rather see a smaller cast and see the actors in their own homes. It is sad that too many conversations happen in the park or Horton Square. Let’s see Steve and Kayla’s house again. Let’s see the apartment where Ben lived.

    Thrilled to know I can visit Salem at least until Fall 2019! The show is in a good place. I, too, wish they didn’t tape so far ahead. It hurts the show creatively, but I know it is cost effective. Unfortunately, right now, $$ wins.

    DAYS has earned it’s renewal. They got the best writing team on the block and the cast has stepped up to the task. There are a few bad cast members but overall — way up to the top –. Glad I get another year of Ron and his writing teams work.

    Best show ever.I never miss an episode.How can I?With all of the stuff going on with Abby-Gabby makes for a very interesting Story. I know all about mental illness.believe me it isn’t easy living with it.Now for Brady I use to like him now I cannot stomach the guy .Although I have this sneaky feeling that Eve is onto him Keep up the great work you are doing for Days.I will be watching you.Hey I even got my friend interested now she loves the Abby-Gabby story.

      I keep going back and forth…. is that a tell tale sign of good writing

      she knows… she doesn’t . to me it looks like he’s falling for her.

      I thought it telling… when his son… showed Brady … a valentines card for him and Mommy…. Theresa !!!! as Eve looked on. AND Brady may be overlooking his texts from grand dad Victor. and hopefully just acting out “overheard” conversations

      DANG doesn’t Kassie DePaiva LOOK SO GOOD.

      if there is ONE character – I am anxiously waiting – for their own Story… BECAUSE she deserves an EMMY.

      Kassie DePaiva as Eve Donovan. LOVE HER TO BITS

      Eric Martsolf as Brady I think is reveling in his new direction with incredible scripts. YES he’s definitely turned for the worse. as long as he does not … hurt Eve. which in all likelihood a probability.

      YOU KNOW.. talk about couples brimming with possibilities potential and just a surefire dream of everything serial. LOVE watching these two date. talk about LOVE SEX and BELONG.

      I WANT to see Eve FIGHTING for every thing she wants. AND reign as she always should… on top

      PS: Marci Miller… has run the gamut from homely, bohemian, Cheryl Tiegs, to Gabs, to HOT.

      LOL.. I watched yesterday show.. as she emerged dripping in red w/black hair.. LOOKING STUNNING

      what can one say more ? Abigail Horton Devereaux DiMera.

      her poised natural take after take… I have no complaints and only want her to be a shoe in for Best Lead Actress as a newbie. she has to make the top 5 .

      • Maca

        March 10, 2018 at 5:06 am

        Love her more than the other abigail I’m glad they are giving her better story

      • rebecca1

        March 10, 2018 at 9:31 am

        Marci Miller has been wonderful to watch. I liked her even before she had the opportunity to show off all these different sides to her personality/acting skills! I venture to say she’s doing as good a job as Erika Slezak ever did on OLTL. (truth be told I thought Erika was sometimes way over the top and a tad corny.)

        But I have to disagree with you on the “homely” bit. In my opinion she’s flawless. Even in her pale, natural state she kinda illuminates, radiates flawless skin, beautiful eyes…She’s more “dynamic” when she puts on bolder colors, wardrobe, makeup…but to me that only accentuates her beauty.

        And then there’s Gabby and Ciara. Both gorgeous, too.

        Loving Kassie as Eve. It’s so amazing how I don’t see Blair when I look at her; only Eve (which of course is the way it should be). Same with Tyler as Stefan O. Even though his character is very similar to Nicolas I see Stefan. Ahhhh..the power of imagination and the ability to suspend disbelief.

        Yes to Cheryl Tiegs. Marci bares an incredible resemblance to Cheryl’s younger modeling days.

    Great news! I wish they renewed for at least the next two years. Back in the day you never even thought of cancellation; you just expected these “worlds” to be there always…

  12. Patrick

    March 8, 2018 at 6:19 pm

    I”M so glad there were no threads of “anticipation” . I forgot… whew! I had every reason to expect as much… Thanks to Ron Carlivati and HIS TEAM.

    18 – 19 months.. here we come

    Great news and well deserved! The ratings for Days have surged lately and the show is on fire. Days really is the best soap on and has been since Ron C’s stories started last summer.

    I’m not surprised by this news because I love everything they’ve been doing on the show. Only thing i wish for is for the show to be less far ahead in the production schedule. Never understood what the deal was being 6 months ahead in production.

    Hopefully, NBC will give more money to DAYS once that horrible Megyn Kelley is cancelled. What a waste of so much money for a dud show. How does the Peacock network not understand that we dont want hours and hours of boring talk shows. We want our soaps to remain. Hell, bring on another 30 minute soap like Bold and Beaut…i’m sure people would show an interest….

    • blake

      March 11, 2018 at 5:25 pm

      I forgot Megyn Kelly has a talk show. Stupid of NBC to give a talk show that both liberals and conservatives can’t stand. You are correct, they have too many talk shows, and most don’t last more than a season.

    Yay!!!! I do wish they’d renew for 2 years, but 1 is still great!

    Love this news! Daytime drama is a wonderful valid genre. Really, without what would daytime TV be? Too much talk, courtroom, news, and trash already. Why not solid dramatic programming in daytime?

    Maybe NBC can see value in Ron C and launch a new show, even a pair of half hours with online connections? Develop THE BAY or one of the other successful efforts.

    Now if nbc would only pour $$$ into modernized sets and advertisements !.. Days fans are a 50 + year loyal audience but have to suffer through recycled office and park bench scenes but yet nbc has $$ for crap like the megan kelly hour?.. Shame on nbc

    • rebecca1

      March 10, 2018 at 9:23 am

      Soaps are astronomical to produce which is why most of them are off the air. They have no budget to modernize sets; would rather they focus on being able to afford to keep it going.

    • Steve

      March 11, 2018 at 10:07 am

      NBC does not own the show. It negotiates a fee to broadcast the show from Sony and Corday. It’s up to them (not NBC) to determine how the budget is spent. They can try to negotiate a higher fee from NBC, but that’s highly unlikely.

      The only current soap owned by a network is GH.

    • blake

      March 11, 2018 at 5:27 pm

      Agree that hopefully the better ratings and the renewal will bring on better sets. NBC should be cutting Megyn Kelly, they were so stupid to bring on someone that no one can stand.

  21. Andrew Hass

    March 9, 2018 at 10:54 am

    I’m not that surprised by this news because i think it would have leaked if NBC was even considering cancelling Days.However even though NBC just renewed Days for more year there could be something in the renewal that says they could renew it for a second year come next year like i think they did the last time they renewed Days.

    I love it.I just wonder how many more personalities Abby is going to have.Did I hear that right she said that Abby killed Andre?Also I just loved what Eve did to Brady.Can’t wait to see Mondays show.To bad Brady you lost

    Great news , congratulations to the cast and crew!!!
    Now hopefully we can see some of the other sets ???
    Hopes house; Steve and Kaylas house, The Spectator offices ;
    Can some of the characters eat at a table at home??
    Enough use of the Horton Town Square; the Police Station, and that park bench,,!

    what also happened was Megan Kelly failed on NBC.
    But I think Days Carlivati has to answer to his poor taste in using john’s pathetic reasoning regarding poisoning Steve as we currently keep reading in the news how putin kills agents using poison. I think the bad taste of this writer needs to be acknowledged and he must issue apologies. At the very least John should not be held by other characters as having done the right thing but instead held accountable for his failure to trust and warn his partner Steve and that he did the wrong thing.

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…)

Kyle took to social media sharing a video message on his arrival back in Salem expressing: “BEYOND excited to be rejoining my Days of our Lives family. See y’all soon!” SOD first reported the casting news. (more…)
