Gina you are awesome and your nom is well deserved


Agreed. Also, I think Billy and Phyllis have a lot more chemistry than Billy and Victoria, who, in my opinion, have zero, zilch, nada chemistry.


For what?


Hey Michael..
You always give a great show, a good listen, thanks..

((Michael is Star ! 🙂

Great job Michael. Thanks for doing this every year. Love that Laura Wright is back as the co-host.

I am gonna listen to this over the weekend. I am very much looking forward to it.


Very disappointed that neither Maurice Benard nor William deVry made the cut!! #GH


Agreed, regarding William deVry-love him as Julian Jerome!


I agree!

I am rooting for Nancy Lee Grahn and John Aniston the most (: Laura Wright was great but Nancy was better imo. Billy Flynn for Best Actor. Kate Mansi for Supporting Actress. Bryan Craig and Lexi Ainsworth for Younger Actor/Actress. B&B for Series and Writing; Days for Directing.

Mostly I am happy with the nominees. Not thrilled that Jeffrey Vincent Parise is nommed; I felt that Jess Walton was SUPPORTING, not Lead; not thrilled that Vincent Irizarry was nommed instead of Jason Thompson…

Glad we will get to see the show live this year!


Agreed, 1,000% percent regarding Nancy Lee Grahn, always brings her “A-Game!”

I would love to know how the hell Maurice Benard was not nominated? Just another reason to believe these awards are fixed! The Bi Polar s/l was one of the best pieces of work on daytime! Bryan, Laura and yes Maurice were fabulous! Maurice was cheated imo. Very unhappy fan


Maurice Benard has to nominate himself/put himself in the game .


Didn’t know where else to put this question but why, Michael Fairman, are there barely any posts about story for the Bold & Beautiful? It’d be great to get more discussions going for this soap. Recent fan and I love it!


Will we ever get Morgan back ? I hate it that Carly and Sonny are breaking up. Love them together.


Laura, I had read you owned a vineyard. is this sold nationally or only locally ?


I read the comment that said,”We will be able to see it live this time”, yet no one has said how? No mention of any station or site is advertised as one people can go to & watch it?


They have not reveal anything yet, all David Michaels said, that it is certain that we would be able to see it live, either on a network or livestream.


Really sad I didn’t listen to this live. But man I loved every minute of this! Thank you Michael & thank you for having Laura!

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…)
