On Sunday night, HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver had a very special surprise for for 16-year old wheelchair bound Syrian refugee Noujain Mustaffa and Days of our Lives fans.

Noujain is the young teenage girl we told you about earlier last week, who was trying to get to Germany and seek asylum. When ABC News first brought the young girl’s plight to the forefront, they asked Noujain how she learned to speak English.  She said by watching Days of our Lives, and in particular the struggles of Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott).  She also related she was upset that her favorite character (EJ) was killed off the show!

But for one night only, EJami was reunited thanks to the efforts of Oliver and his production team who hoped to shed light on the struggles of the migrants and refugees in Europe, and wanting to do something for Noujain.  So, after a hilarious recap of what led up to the “death” of EJ DiMera, Oliver threw to a clip which featured Alison Sweeney and James Scott playing out a sort of EJami reunion with a shout out to Noujain as only EJ can!

James Scott took to Twitter following the airing of the broadcast saying: “Thank you #LastWeekTonight and #Ali_Sweeney and #Noujainfor one last Dimera dance!”   He then followed it up with a hashtag in a new tweet, #ejamiaintover   Alison Sweeney added on Twitter: ” So glad to give Noujain her HEA and bring attention to her story. #Days50″

Watch the entire segment after the jump, which includes the set up from John Oliver featuring James and Alison as EJ and Sami after the jump!  Then let us know what you think of Alison and James coming on board to do this segment with a nod to Noujain and her story? Do you hope to see EJami back on DAYS in the future?  Comment below!

    This was sooo amazing!! I loved that James and Ali did this for noujain!! But really this was for all Ejami Lovers who got cheated out of our HEA! So for James and Ali to get together and do this for her was so cool!! But that’s just the kind of awesome people that James and Ali are!! I would love to see them reunited back on Days, but I’m not holding my breath. But for know, I know it was just for noujain on LWT, but it was a way for Ejamis to finally get our HEA!!! Thanks James and Ali!!!!!

      Now that Ejami got their HEA let’s pray that Noujain and all those seeking a better life will get one too.

      God bless John, James and Ali.

    So cool by Ali and James to do this 🙂 Ejami created a sensation on Days the actor’s intense chemistry and the characters fit so well together, do not know if they ever can create a similar pair on the show like Ejami? Anyway, very nicely done for the Syrian girl who seemed to love these characters. Strange that the show could not give Ejami fans a happy ending when they were on? Therefore Ejami fans left the show they were fed up with the disastrous writing as EJ and Sami got. Very strange that what was so obvious to viewers was not as obvious to the writers, producers etc?

      That James is one hell of a good winker too.

        @Harry, yes James is! Gifted across the board.
        What a treat. Alison & James are class acts!

        Question–why isn’t James Scott a huge movie star?
        He reminds me of High Grant.

        He should be and AS should have a prime time tv show.

        Ahmad, thank you for sharing this. Just love her infectious joy! She’s an amazing girl. Reminds me how lucky I am and not to focus on my first-world “problems”.

    It was a lot of fun to watch and such a surprise! Who would have expected them to be on the John Oliver show. Wish they would both come back to Days.

    I don’t think I will ever quit missing these two,, ,, and one of the nicest things to do for this girl ,,, love it

    It doesnt matter if EJ and Sami are together on Days(not really sure) but what they did for that girl was nice!

    I’m not even an Ejami fan and I thought it was awesome! What JS and AS did for this refugee girl was funny and wonderful. In addition, it gives the Ejami fans the HEA they desperately wanted. I love that John Oliver’s show did this. How great is this? And I also have to give credit to Sony and DOOL, because they didn’t have to give HBO permission to use the show’s characters for this purpose. This is one of the nicest things I’ve seen a non-Daytime show do for a couple on Daytime. Well done by everyone!

    • Harry

      September 28, 2015 at 12:44 pm

      Yes, Beth! This was grand for all so many reasons. One, it underscores and calls attention to the plight of the migrant/refugee’s and the injustices from which they are suffering. Two, and this might seem less important by comparison, it calls attention to the soap genre. Days of our Lives viewers are bound to watch this segment and will learn something while folks who do not watch soaps, will learn how fabulous (Days and Allison Sweeney and James Scott, in particular) can be. This put Days on the grid and that is a good thing. It’s a win-win situation which had me crying and laughing at the same time. I was in absolute hysterics when John Oliver screamed,”Why, EJ? Why?”
      I swear, Mr John Oliver is a soap watcher. I only hope that dear little girl who learned to speak English from watching Days of our Lives got to see this. I also hope she’s doing well.

    So so cool, all this story is great. This amazing and courageous young girl, i hope she find a home soon. And great move from John Oliver (who is so funny and smart like his pal Jon Stewart) and from the awesome actors Ali Sweeney and James Scott (who were able to create such an unique soap couple despite all the bad writing they suffered for years !)

      I think they did suffer bad writing in the last year, but not for years. If it was bad for years, then you most likely would not have liked and rooted for them. Angst is a good thing for soap couples.

    OMG Fabulous!! I will watch this over again.

    Absolutely incredible. Amazing that Last Week Tonight was able to pull an EJami reunion off in about 5 days time, to give Nourjain something happy to treasure while she goes through her horrific journey to freedom. Kudos to Ali Sweeney and James Scott for being willing to do this for this sweet, intelligent girl. And the added bonus is that all EJami fans got their HEA, the one Days was too vindictive to give to them last year. What fools.

    My heart will never get over the VOID of AS & JS not being on the show. I miss them so much they were my couple and can never be replaced. If I was them (tptb) I would do whatever I could to get them back on especially for the 50th and beyond. I want EJami back! So do many others!!!! Thank you Michael for sharing this with us. Noujain’s reaction – I would have loved to seen her reaction too this!

    I hope to find out Noujain was able to see EJami reunite. I loved the shout out to her!

      Me too! I love John Oliver with the heat of a thousand suns.
      Did you hear John Oliver call Abby a “little trollop?”

      • 4ever DAYS

        September 28, 2015 at 2:26 pm

        Yes, Harry, I laughed so hard! Then I laughed some more when I read Kate Mansi’s response on Twitter!

      • Torqumada

        September 28, 2015 at 5:21 pm

        It was a hilarious. AND she is! LOL

    ABC News found Noujain in a refugee camp and showed her the video. Sorry, I don’t have a link. Kudos to all involved. Another reason to love John Oliver.

  19. Belle

    That was great! I miss those two. Plus, John Oliver is okay, also!

  20. Jamesj75

    September 28, 2015 at 7:36 pm

    Kudos all the way around!!!

    John Oliver is brilliant!

    Noujain Mustaffa is inspiring!

    Alison Sweeney and James Scott were terrific to agree to do this. And the scene they acted was very cathartic, not only for Miss Mustaffa, but also for fans of DOOL. It gives a degree of closure, to be sure…

    The Days of our Lives family has always shown much appreciation for their fans. So it is not surprising that James Scott and Alison Sweeney would do what they did to make this young girl happy and draw attention to her plight. This act of kindness was very much indicative of the character the Days family. Once a Salemite, always a Salemite full of compassion and kindness for fans!

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…)
