Days of our Lives icon Peter Reckell (Bo Brady) is giving out some major kudos to DAYS new head writing team of Dena Higley and Josh Griffith, who are apparently turning the show on its ear, and are apparently penning inspired storytelling come time for the show’s 50th anniversary milestone.

Over the last few months, everyone On-Air On-Soaps has spoken to from the cast, the powers-that-be, and those behind the scenes are over the moon with the scripts and the storylines that they are taping, and that viewers will see come this fall.  DAYS turns 50 on November 8th.

Today on Twitter, Reckell shared: “These new writers are really inspired for the 50th anniversary. They will have you laughing, crying, jumping for joy!!!”  In addition, Reckell said in a previous tweet:  “The show has been on hiatus this week, so I went camping with family! Looking forward to Salem this next week, have some amazing material!!”

So, do you think Josh Griffith and Dena Higley have found the golden formula to make sure that DAYS 5-0 is one for the soap opera record books? What do you think will be Bo’s story when he returns on-air?  Are you excited by all the enthusiasm and all the big returns from Thaao Penghlis, Stephen Nichols, Jason Cook, Reckell and more?  Comment below!

    This is all sounds very good for DAYS! It pleases me that Peter Reckell and other cast members are excited by the new writing team. This is great news. Looking forward to the return of Thaao, Stephen, Peter Jason, and Allison.
    I just wish NBC would realize that the advance taping may have been very effective in the past, but it’s not working now. Fix that problem, it has to be addressed, so the show can quickly fix casting issues, storylines, etc. in a quicker fashion.

      I agree about the 5 months,they Need to ‘re think their letting go of good actors like sonny,and Melanie…..what’s up with that…I am a little disgusted watching gay men kiss and make out…not right read the bible.
      Get rid Massey he does a terrible job of acting,of will.

        You sound like a homophobe, If you think seeing 2 men kissing, is discussing then dont watch Days of our Lives. You are a bigot.

        Besides the stupidity of the comment regarding two men kissing I have to make one slight correction to your inane rant, Ms. Davis. Chandler Massey hasn’t played Will Horton for over a year. The actor portraying Will Horton now is Guy Wilson. Get a grip lady, your knowledge of the cast is just as poor as your alleged Biblical knowledge. The Bible actually does not address two men kissing on television. In fact it says nothing about men and women kissing on television. So if you’re gonna use that make believe book as a tool to get your point across at least have the intelligence to back it up factually. Your opinion on the matter is simply that — YOUR opinion. I, myself, happen to love seeing gay men portrayed as responsible, loving humans who express love the same way that the heterosexual community does. It’s time to drop that line of thinking. It’s not backed up factually, in fact, Christ himself NEVER condemned homosexuality. So place that in your Bible study and educate yourself. Here’s to Will Sonny and Paul. Let’s have some more gay characters come to town and educate the world on the value of these members of our world. Kudos to DAYS for moving into the 21st century and proving that love is love no matter who is partaking in it.

        I don’t know it this will get pass the moderators because it is really off topic but I do wish to address Becky’s comments and those who responded to it. I will try to be brief

        @ Becky– if you are going to judge fictional characters and stories by Biblical standards then you need to judge all of them. You cannot say you offended by the gay storyline because it is not right, yet be okay watching, premarital sex, adultery, murder, lying, or any other sinful behavior, because those too are not right. If you’re okay watching immorality and are only picking and choosing which sin to be offended by, then I respectfully suggest your issue with homosexuality is not rooted in Scripture but your own dislike. If you are equally offended by all displays of Biblical immorality on this soap then wouldn’t it be better for your spirit if don’t waste your time watching it, and use that hour to read Scripture, listen to worship music, pray, or better yet, go out in your community and give your time to helping others. Doesn’t that make better sense than filling your mind with “garbage” then complaining when it stinks.?

        To everyone else —–There has been a huge cultural shift in attitudes towards homosexuality in recent years. It would be unfair to expect everyone to be adjusted to this shift. Trying to change minds by spewing hate to those who spew hate, is a bit like trying to teach your child not to hit others, by slapping them across the face- its pointless.

        Becky is uncomfortable watching two men kiss, she might not be able to understand the source of her discomfort, and is mislabeling it, but that doesn’t make her a bad human being, just human.

        If you can honestly tell me there hasn’t been at least one gay man who hasn’t felt a bit revolted by watching straight people kiss, then yes, I might say, let’s jump on the band wagon and shame Becky for having a human response to something unfamiliar to her life experience. But if not, let’s us try to be more compassionate, and show the love we wish people would show us.

        Not saying we have to agree with Becky, or we cannot challenge her statements, but lets try to do it with kindness, if you truly desire her to hear your view, otherwise, hating the hater will just beget more hate from them.

        As for Mateo’s statement that Jesus didn’t condemn homosexuality, thereby implying Jesus was okay with it, that isn’t quite right. Jesus was a devout Jew, and as a devout Jew, he followed the law of Moses. The Jews believe the law was given to Moses from God Himself. And according to the law of Moses, God did forbid the Jewish people from practicing homosexuality. Jesus didn’t need to tell the Jewish people not to do it, because they all ready knew what the law said about it. His silence wasn’t consent on the matter.

        What Jesus did say was he came not to destroy the Law, which meant, he was saying everything in the law still applied, including the law against homosexuality, but fulfilling it. The fulfillment of the law is love. The law was God’s way to protect the Jewish people from His own holiness. it was given out of love. God’s holiness is like a fire. Fire can be beautiful, it provides light and heat, but it can very dangerous. If you go too close to fire without protection, you will get burned.

        You cannot blame the fire for being fire, and doing what fire does. Likewise we cannot blame God for His holiness. God, first solution was the law, as long as the Jewish people followed the law they were protected from God’s holiness. But they weren’t able to keep the law, none of us can and they suffered the “burning”. This resulted with the Jewish people going 180 degrees in the other direction. They became law crazy– sort of like if you got burn by a fire, you might overreacted by covering yourself so much with protection from head to toe that you not able to see the fire, it’s light, heat or beauty.

        So Jesus wasn’t preaching about morality, he wasn’t trying to give the world more laws to wrapped themselves in fear of God. Jesus taught redemption, a way to be close to the Holiness of God without fear of getting burn or the need for so much protection that you cannot enjoy the fire at all. And that way is love. I won’t get into the details on how Jesus did that, because this isn’t the site for that, but for those who might be curious I suggest you do explore that on sites that will explain it better than I can now.

        I apologize for the length of the post and those who were patient enough to read it all, thank you for allowing me to express my thoughts.

        There is an old saying “don’t argue with an idiot”. Becky, your comments are so absurd and inane they really don’t warrant a response. However, if you’re unhappy with the direction the show is taking, then by all means don’t be a part of the viewing audience. Honestly, no one is forcing you to watch the show.

    Wont judge the stories for the 50th until i see them……so far the guest appearances are exciting! Keep them coming! Wish they could get Denise Alexander for a few eps.—she was Julie’s rival Susan Martin.—would love it if she showed up as Anne’s mother. Susan did have a daughter named Annie.

    • Patrick

      just for you : Denise Alexander, “Susan Martin” ex- Days : 1966-1973

      an excerpt from the DAYS 50th anniversary issue.

      ie: she was asked… about Susan Seaforth Hayes

      “do you still keep in touch with her?”

      “oh, yes. I will love her and Bill forever. I can’t explain to you the affection. it’s everlasting and it will be life long. in your life you just meet some people that become like a sister of the soul, and Susan is that to me. I also have a great fondness for Susan Flannery, or Flannels, as we called her. one of the most stunningly beautiful women you would ever want to meet and with a mouth like a truck driver! we were just crazy about her, the other Susan and me. we knew we were odd and we didn’t care! what made me laugh, made Susan laugh, made Flannels laugh. maybe it was because the show was new and we were struggling to survive, but its as close to a real family feeling in a work situation that I’ve ever known”

      Denise also alluded to the fact : that she got a call from ABC.. and Denise was told by Betty Corday… “you have to do this.. they are offering you 4 times what we can give you”

      hence the rest is history

      I too … am in love with this woman

      ps: JimH… this site… offers you some respite and distraction… enjoy… don’t worry about all your lively posts… it’s a treasure to share this with you… do take care

        Susan Hunter Martin Peters

        Portrayers: Denise Alexander 1966-73, Bennye Gatteys 1973-76
        Date of Birth: unknown
        Parents: Richard and Diane Hunter
        Entrance onto Show: Susan was an old schoolmate of Julie’s
        Marriages: David Martin 1966, Dr. Greg Peters 1973
        Romances: Bill Horton, 1968/9, Scott Banning 1969
        Children: Richard “Dickie” Martin 1967, Annie Peters 1972
        Occupation: Founded the David Martin Clinic
        Crimes/Incarceration: Shot and killed her husband David Martin
        Other Interesting Facts: none
        Date of Death: Still Alive
        Susan was Julie’s best friend, and married Julie’s husband to be David Martin in 1966. Susan only married David because she learned she was pregnant as a result of a drunken one night fling with him. Both Susan and David planned to give the baby up for adoption and tell her parents it was still born, and in January on 1967 Susan delivered a premature baby boy, named Richard “Dickie” Martin. Susan vowed to keep the baby and told David they would make their marriage work for the baby’s sake. However David did not feel the same way and went to Susan’s parents with the truth, not knowing Susan had already told them the truth. Richard and Dianne Hunter told David he should take responsibility for his actions and stay with his family.

        In the summer of 67 when her son Dickie died while with her husband David, Susan became so consumed with grief that in a moment of hate she shot and killed David. After a long hard trial Susan was proven not guilty by reason of temporary insanity in October of 67. After being acquitted Susan went to David’s mother to apologize, and was then shot by her. Susan had to undergo surgery and survived, but was left heart problems.

        In 1969 when Scott and Janet Banning moved to town with their adopted son Bradley (In reality it was Julie and David’s child) Susan began to take care of Brad due to his mother’s fading health due to a brain tumor. After Janet died Susan became found of Brad, and of Scott. However, Julie Olson would exact her revenge on Susan and would sue for custody of Brad (Little David) and would win. Eventually Julie married Scott.

        In 1970 Susan met Doug Williams, who was trying to romance her out of her money. Susan didn’t fall for Doug, but she did see a way she could top her old rival Julie. Susan payed Doug to have an affair with Julie Olson Banning, but when she eventually realized she couldn’t live with what she had done and tried to call the deal off it was too late.

        When Scott left town with David after becoming separated from Julie, Susan became depressed, and while taking a walk in the park one night Susan was attacked by a man, but refused to talk about the incident because she was too embarrassed. The only clue to the attacker was a button she was grasping in her hand.

        In 1971 Susan opened up a clinic with her dead husbands inheritance and began working at the David Martin Clinic. There she met and began to have feelings for Dr. Greg Peters. Suddenly Susan would learn she was pregnant as a result of the attack in the park. She considered having and abortion, but decided to keep the child instead.

        When Greg took Susan to meet his family Susan seemed to have recognized Greg’s brother Eric. Eric didn’t recognize Susan, but she seemed to know him from somewhere. At another dinner at the Peters home Susan slipped into Eric’s room and found a blazer of his with a button missing, the missing button was the one Susan was clutching in her hand the night of the attack. Eric Peters was the man who raped her months ago, and the father of her child. However, upon confronting Eric, Eric claimed the sex was mutual, and Susan only panicked and ran after they had slept together. Both Susan and Eric decided it was best if they kept this a secret from Greg.

        In 1973 Susan gave birth to her baby, it was a girl and she named her Annie Peters. Susan and Greg were to be married in February of 73 when Susan suddenly left town, leaving a note behind for Greg not to come looking for her. Susan left her baby Annie with Greg’s mom and went off to decide if she should tell Greg about what happened in the park months earlier.

        Upon hearing that Eric had been beaten by his brother Susan returned to Salem and visited Eric. Eric had kept Susan’s secret safe from Greg, and almost payed with his life. Susan thanked Eric, and then told Greg the truth. Greg was shocked but later came around, and in 1973 Greg Peters and Susan Hunter Martin were married.

        In 1974 Susan and Greg’s marriage began to dissolve, and when Greg left his job at the clinic to join Dr. Neil Curtis’ practice it put an even bigger strain on their marriage.

        In 1976 Susan and Greg divorced, and Susan moved to California with Greg’s brother Eric and their daughter Annie.

      ps: I had “NO” idea.. she was on DAYS

      I absolutely loved Lesley and Rick Webber… OK : give me this… I loved him

      ie: Lesley ; the character was killed off in March 1984. Angry fans picketed the studio, upset that the character had died.[4] In 1996, the series wrote the character back on, and Alexander appeared in a recurring status until October 2009

      HOT stuff

      I hope … she returns… to GH.. and rights her grandson… Nikolas… she’a a HOOT

    There have been rumors that Days of Our Lives will not be renewed for 2017, as of now. Days will stick around till September 2016. The ratings are really bad now. I enjoy Days but the Serena storyline is boring and Dragging on and on.

    May 30, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    Well I am glad to hear that they are making a true effort to make the 50th year special. I am looking forward to it, and hope it lives up to the press being put out there to create buzz. It only saddens me to think they are making this effort only because of the 50th, and not because they truly want to improve the show. Why does it take a special milestone for producers and higher ups to finally make changes to set the show back on course? Don’t get me wrong I am happy the show seems to be getting back into its old groove, but I just wonder if the 50th wasn’t on the radar, would we see these types of stories, or would we have been stuck with newies and diamonds in elephants for months to come?

      I am a devout OLTL fan and had never seen DOOL until 1 year ago. Since then, I’ve become a regular Days viewer and really enjoy it. I watched Y&R for 2 years and finally couldn’t take it anymore. Days certainly cannot replace OLTL in my opinion; but, it is fun and generally well done. Hope you enjoy it.

    I wasn’t watching when Peter left; i hadn’t watched Days in YEARS. i came in just before Kristen left, just as Sami left. I’ve LOVED THIS SHOW SO MUCH and hope to never stop watching again.

    Don’t know why Peter left, but i’m not missing him. i know DOOL can sell it tho, and i may end up happy he’s back.

    HEY DOOL why all the days that DAYS isn’t showing? there was a monday one week, a friday one week, now no show on thurs OR fri this week? COME ON!

    I’m looking forward to the 50th anniversary and the months leading up to it. But we’re still a long way away from mid to late August when some of the returning veterans start to air. I can’t believe we have to wait so long for all this good stuff to happen.

    I have watched days since day one. I am SO excited to hear that Bo, Steve, and Tony are coming back to Salem. From what I hear in this report, as bad as the winter was here this past year, and our summers are so short as it is, I can’t wait for September! I am so looking forward to some decent storylines for a change. And better acting now that the veterans are returning. I hope it’s not all hype, and has some real promise in what they say. Welcome back, Bo, Steve and Tony!!! Can’t wait to see you all on screen once again.

  17. Travis Thomas

    May 31, 2015 at 6:49 am

    Im so excited for this & def can get behind Josh Griffith. But Im a little annoyed that Corday would turn the reigns over to TWICE fired Dena Higley. Most viewers hated her stints in the writers room and the answer is to rehire her a third time.

    I think what makes that decision so frustrating is that Lorraine Broderick is right there to pair with Josh which would have been magical, but instead they go with Dena Higley again.

    I def know the 50th Anniversary will be amazing, but the bigger question is what happens after this big moment. Will Josh & Dena clash over where to go next, will Josh give up like he did at YR and walk away, leaving Dena solely in charge. Ugh. And of course because Days tapes SIX MONTHS in advance, if things go badly, we the audience will have to wait forever to have this mess cleaned up.

    I know some fans will say Im being doom and gloom to soon. But Im curious why a person that was let go 2 times will do an amazing job on the third try. I always wonder what makes Network exes go for mediocre vs going after the best. There are all these amazing and wonderful HW’s not being hired, but the same recycled hacks keep getting hired time and time again. And I just dont get it.

    In most companies, they chase hires that have had tremendous success; Her OLTL stint was so bad Erika Slezak, who never speaks out went public, her two Days stints were lambasted and it took forever for Days to get out of that rut. But yet here we are again handing over the keys to the kingdom. I dont understand Corday. Plus he’s the same person that claimed her longtime SL’s were amazing both times & from history we know how that turned out. So as excited as I am about the 50th anniversary shows, Im worried about afterwards.

  18. Alan

    May 31, 2015 at 6:54 am

    It would be great if the new material is enough to raise DAYS’ ratings and erase any cancellation rumors but based on Higley and Griffith’s previous work I’m not counting on it.

    I’m really looking forward to the stories starting in August. Hopefully this means the current storylines will start getting better because a lot of them will be wrapping up and they will likely be getting rid of characters like Clyde to make room and save money for the vets coming back.

    Days is going to be MUST SEE again starting in August and I can’t wait!

    “Laughing, crying jumping for joy” sounds like a Bo and Hope reconciliation to me! Didn’t expect Bo to take Hope divorcing him and moving forward with Aiden – or any man for that matter – lying down! (Don’t think Peter could take it either! I think he likes Bo and Hope as a supercouple too!)

    • Gmbenet

      June 4, 2015 at 12:56 am

      Days could make a huge storyline out of telling what Bo has been doing since he left Salem! Speaking of jumping for joy, I might do that if they brought back Joe Gallison (Neil Curtis), Gloria Poring (Liz) and Jed Allen (Don’t Craig).

      Also they say Tommy Horton, Jr. went upstairs at Horton house and never came down again. I think the actor who played Tom Jr is deceased. But what Days could down is have Tom Jr’s grandson come down the stairs at Horton house and say something about his grandfather. A whole lot has gone on upstairs at Horton house down through the years. Tell it!

    Days has a lot of potential. There are some stellar cast members. However people keep choosing to look back instead of looking forward. I mean please, how much Bo and Hope can any one stomach take. They will never be what they were in their hey day. Same for Marlena and John. Some of these couples are things of the past. Time to move forward and accept it. It’s great that they are bringing back some of the actors from the past but it would be silly to bring them back to “tease” the audience about getting something they most likely will not get. The new writing team is exciting. I like what DAYS can do when they tell a good story. But when you have boring stories like they have had for the past few months it’s hard to save them. I am wishing and hoping all the best for DAYS because when it’s good, it’s really really good.

    Lets face it. All the returns will get people like me watching. But for how long ? I haven’t wanted to or been tempted to watch days in years. TITC of GH have completely destroyed that show. I hate to say it but, TIIC of soaps want them GONE. they want more of the Chew, Talk, the gag me with all the idiots. Talk shows don’t cost as much. I never watch them no matter how many soap stars they drag on, and soaps they are not tempting me at all either. I will watch Bo’s return , Stephen , etc. sounds good for now. One thing about me. If a show takes over the time my favorite soap had, I just never watch. The talk I have never watched ,never will. I am very vindictive. .I do not forget. Cable allows me to be that way. I have gotten in the habit of not putting my TV on in the daytime. They also need to bring back Jack the original !

      Hi janet!

      Maybe you’re talking about Matthew Ashford as Jack, but he was not the original Jack. Here’s a list containing the five Jacks, including Matthew Ashford’s three stints:

      Joseph Adams (1987)
      James Acheson (1987)
      Matthew Ashford (1987-1993)
      Mark Valley (1994-1997)
      Steve Wilder (1997-1998)
      Matthew Ashford (2001-2007)
      Matthew Ashford (2011-2012)

      Joseph Adams was blonde and scruffy…much like patch.
      James Acheson was more of a preppy like the most well know Jack…Matthew Ashford, but James was not seasoned.
      Mark Valley was really good, but when he was in the shower, he turned into Steve Wilder…MID EPISODE!!

      I hope Matthew Ashford comes back!!!

        Matthew Ashford was the Jack I liked. He was the last one, TIIC destroyed. Missy and Matt had great on screen chemistry. M A is the one I would love to see returned. At one time days was the show you didn’t want to miss. Now I just don’t bother with any soaps. Oh I know he wasn’t the original, I also remember him coming on..If I happen to turn the show on out of curiosity, I think that is a different show.

    Hype for 50th sounds great. Days has always run as a rollercoaster. Counting on Josh Griffith to bring it back to life and commerate the best of show.Thrilled to hear Peter Reckell, Stephen Nichols, Thaao Penghlis, Jason Cook, Nadia Bjorlin, Denise Alexander are all returning. So far so good. I hope we see a lot or even cameos & flashbacks from Matthew Ashford,(Jack), Kirsten Storms(Belle) James Scott (EJ), Billy Warlock,(Frankie), Jane Elliott(Anjelica Devereaux), Jed Allen(Don Craig), J Kenneth Johnson(Phillip), Ashley Benson(Abby), John DeLancie(Eugene), LeeAnn Hunley(Anna), Wayne Northrup(Roman),Michael Weiss(Mike), Christie Clark(Carrie), Austin Peck(Austin), Julie Pinson(Billie), SteveBlackwood(Bart)

    I would especially like to see Jack return (give Matt Ashford a contract-he is needed so much. His whole Devereaux/Johnson family is back.) Give a special recognition to Josh Taylor as Chris Kosticheck. Have a special salute to all the Romans, like GH gave a salute
    to all the Carly’s.

      Hi Libby!

      Maybe you think Denise Alexander is coming back because she’s on so many people’s wish list. Or possibly you heard she’s actually visiting. Are you sure Denise is on her way? I sure hope so, but I would understand if you were mistaken.

      Go DAYS!!!!!

    I continue to watch because I know I will miss the show if it ever goes away. One of the biggest problems is knowing that Serena, Zander, Melanie and Sonny are all leaving in the next few months and so much of the show revolves around their story lines. The show MUST stop taping so far in advance and get rid of story lines that are HORRIBLE. Did someone at NBC actually think a ceramic elephant storyline sounded interesting involving characters we do not know or care about?

    Next, the show has dropped the ball on two huge story lines. Why did the writers not take the opportunity to show a different side of Theresa after she found her baby? She is still manipulative and her conversations with Anne make me realize how one-dimensional the character has been since Jen L arrived. The other missed opportunity is with Eve. After someone has been brought to their knees, why would the character not take responsibility and realize things need to change. Instead, we get to see Eve blame everyone else (just like Will) for her misdeeds. Please make these characters have just a small amount of rooting value. Will, Eve and Theresa continue to show us nothing but selfishness.

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…)
