According to The Salem Spectator via Jane Kunitz, the mother of  twins Aaron & Griffin Kunitz who play Johnny DiMera on Days of our Lives, the boys are also leaving Days of our Lives since their TV parents Alison Sweeney (Sami) and James Scott (EJ), are leaving the show this month as well.

Saying “it’s been an amazing 5+ years”, she also tweeted what the next projects for her boys: “Griffin will be in a few episodes of Dog with A Blog which is a kids Disney show…Aaron has a DISH commercial coming out in May.”

The Kunitz twins made their debut on Days of our Lives back in January 27, 2009.  There has been an outpouring of love, support and congrats for a job well-done on their Twitter account for the twins, since the news broke of James Scott’s departure from the series, as well as the kids.

So, what do you think about the news that Aaron and Griffin are wrapping up at DAYS?

I have to add in…. hidden gems…. see them when we get them T (Tad) he works the bar, his eyes have a life of their own… they just sparkle, plus he’s a good character actor… they should feature him some story Anne: for all her one-dimensional Mean streak…. she carries herself… full load, in charge, and doesn’t give a cahoots who stands taller… would love some back story and flesh her character… she has the chops Bev : could be the nuSami in the making… the ripe Talent… to bitch and mean it up…. to get what she wants…… Read more »

You’re so right about Bev! Whilst she’s getting a bit over the top with her clinging to JJ, she’s been such an entertaining character! All the makings of someone we could grow to love, just like Sami way back when… Would love to see her entangled in another storyline.

Hoping so! Maybe Lucas will get more story now that EJAMI is not on steeling all the screen time.

Since the actors who plays Johnny’s parents are leaving it makes sense that the twins who play Johnny will also be leaving.With or without EJ with her i’m thinking when Sami leaves she’ll take her younger kids with her.However if Lucas stays on the show Allie might stay with him but that might be to be determined.

don’t you just hate this : diminishing screen time…. I mean, for Lucas… to interact

Sheryl was so good for him : I think Sami…. who would defer… for once… a child… and give, from her heart… to Lucas

wouldn’t that be a bang up job… to see

sad…. well up emotion… for Sami

The boys were a great addition to the Ejami family . They are great actors and will go far. I will like to see them on another program or movie they are very good. Maybe be with Alison or James or together. Good luck to two talented little boys.

Most of the time soaps have children around as part of the scenery– they are seen but rarely heard from– but once in a while one comes along who can actually act and then if they are lucky the show will give them a chance to shine. These boys obviously have talent and certainly were given more screen time than the little girl(s) playing their fraternal twin sister Allie. And speaking of Allie why did they cast a girl who looks so much older that her brother– it drove me nuts– but I digress. I wish these boys well —… Read more »

SO NOBODY NOTICED THAT IT SAYS JAMES SCOTT IS LEAVING AS WELL?/ NOW THATS A CRIME

People already knew about James leaving at this point when his TV sons (Aaron & Griffin…aka…Johnny DiMera) made their announcement about leaving the show with their TV parents this month. Alison’s announcement was in January; James’s announcement was last Friday (before the boys’ announcement); and the boys announcement was a couple days after James’s announcement. Looks like their mother may have waited until James made his announcement about leaving and then she made the boys’ announcement about them leaving after their TV dad (James/EJ) did his.

I will miss them so much..let’s hope we saw them pretty soon in other projects, they are so cute and natural. Love you Aaron and Griffin !

I love them. They’re adorable and I’ll miss them, but it makes sense for them to leave too. It’s not like Stefano would be raising the kids. Guess Johnny will return in a few years as a teenager.

I wonder about Ally. I guess Sydney will be gone too, not that we see her much.

Why are so many characters (actors) leaving the show. Is this a sign of bad times ahead for DOOL. It will be devastating if DOOL is added to the list of axed shows. Why did they hire DC as Aiden (the lawyer). Every soap that hired him went down the drain in a year or two. I still hate that ATWT killed off Reid to give Chris a second chance at life; and broke up Luke and Reid to prop up Katie and Chris at the end of the show.

I hope not Alison Sweeney : is doing the same thing that Eileen Davidson did… taking time off to be a mother I just can’t fathom… that… AS would leave entirely… and that a respite…. from the grind… is all thats needed… and that she’d step right back up to the plate… when she’s ready… I certainly hope this it would seem… like James Scott decided to take time off… I think, these two… know… how invaluable they are to the canvas and production I would just love it… if they recast.. Sami… for Kelly Sullivan… just to give her… Read more »

So going to miss Sami & EJ, James & Alison, and Supercouple Ejami’s family together and all these little ones that play their children. DAYS really lucked out and found some good child actors and matching looks and features to their t.v. parents James & Alison/EJ & Sami. But I’m so happy for all of them getting to get away from daytime soaps and getting to get away from some of the craziness and the crazy people in the viewership at times and not having to be used as game pieces between so many ships for their t.v. parents and… Read more »

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”
