The problem is that Days didn’t reboot. They just added J&M, Caustin and Jack to the mix that was already in play. I don’t see how replacing an EP in charge of production is going to help, and in fact, it may hinder by throwing cast & crew off balance. Is Corday ever going to understand Rafe and Daniel are Higley creations that many viewers have NO interest in? And why are there no characters in Salem between 23 -34 besides EJ? A character that has so many tire marks on his back, NCIS’s Abby couldn’t identify them all. 🙁

Days did reboot. I enjoy both Rafe and Daniel, Higley creations or no. The new writers are doing a great job. They write in a way that does not offend the intelligence of the viewer. Some viewers don’t like stories written just for persons age 23-24 (let them go watch the CW) and couldn’t care less about that. Days is doing just fine. The ratings are up. They are getting back to what soaps were about before 23-24 year olds were even born. But people that young may not understand it because they are still wet behind the ears and know NOTHING! LOL!

I think of NBC begin showing the orgingal HourGlass Closing Credits instead of the squueze ones with NBC Primetime Ads, then Days ratings would go up.

So many changes and not one of them has got me excited about Days. The reboot didn’t make a difference and I don’t see this helping the cause. The show is a ginormous snoozefest. I can’t make myself watch an entire epi. The writing continues to fail.

SPOT ON! I agree. The show is so boring that I would rather watch paint dry literally. EJ and Nicole are a snoozefest and Rafe is utterly boring i want to rip my hair out. I dont understand why EJ and Sami are no longer in the same orbit. I love EJAMI and will never watch if they are not on TOGETHER. The new head writers should be fired. Ken Corday just loves Passions doesnt he.

Agreed. Ejami is why I came back to Days. Now I watch Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries like I used to watch Days. I couldn’t wait to watch the next show. I ended up searching the net for spoilers and discoved the world of soaps on my computer. Chuck and Damon have now replaced my EJ. The dark gorgeous character with the soft spot for the girl he loves more than life itself. That recipe never fails! The reboot is not working for me. Characters I don’t care about in stories that put me to sleep. That is a recipe for disaster and the ratings are proving it. I still look at spoilers hoping for something to draw me back in. I muddle through shows here and there only to end up deleting followed by removing several more without even trying to watch. If something doesn’t change quick the reboot will end up with the blue screen of death.

Don’t Worry. Once Will and Sonny hit the sheets, then Days of our Lives will be back of being the greatest. Hey Marlena, please get possed by the devil so then you try to chop off Sonny’s head when Will and Sonny make love in your Penthouse!

Days loves firing people I’m getting bored. We want The Dimeras NOT Rafe/Austin/Madison fire them! Dammit! Bring back CC and Nadia.

Actually YES we do want Austin. Carrie and Austin are one of Days’ premiere supercouples and basically the only reason I’m back to watching this silly show.

And bring back Jay. EJ needs someone to play against. Rafe does not cut it.

Passions is my favourite soap, so this news excites me. Unfortunately, the new head writers haven’t made Days as interesting as they made Passions, but maybe help from Passions’ former EP will help in that department.

Passions was a horrible soap. Really as It was. from 2000-2009(GL), and 1999-2008(Passions), they creubated Daytime. IF Passions and GL got rid of that “crap” and became a regular soap oprea like Santa Barbara, they they would have survived.

Passions was fantastic because it was a satire of soap operas, and people who liked “normal” soaps just didn’t get it. Passions was brilliant and Reilly was a genius. Thank GOD that we got 9 years with Passions, because the show was amazing and revolutionary. I love Passions and will always love Passions—now let’s hope the new EP and head writers rub some of that Passions influence off on Days!

Dan and Rafe need to hit the road and take Carrie and Austin with them,and Jackass can go back where he came from.
rewritten history over and over isnot good IMO
they broke up Sami and Lucas so she could have EJ and then broke them up so she could have Rafe and now she and Austin is living together with Rafe and 4 kids,@@
Sami and Lucas Horton and 4 kids need to be together and stop all the bull sh,, going on,,, I love that John and Marlena are back,and now can we have Tony and Lucas back???????????????????????????????????

LUMI

Days is not Passions, they got rid of Another World after 35 years and put Passions on and just how long did that soap last @@
If they want to put actors on Days get the actors they let go,we want them back first.

Bring Back Brady #1. Nicole’s Husband in real life need a job. Chloe can return. Oh yeah Farah Fath as Mimi’s back on Days in April and she been boring probabaly.. Jason Brooks is back in April as Peter two for three month guest appearance contract and he’ll be evil and crazy and boring. I like Days from 1992-2004. Remember when DAYS had exterior outdoor scences and closing credits>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9AI0BS_UUg &http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwlIRiLGsXw&feature=related

I like the changes they have made and the direction the show is moving ( women are working not just chasing men, storylines with more substance – class action suit, mayoral race, etc) but they have to stay focused on the major storylines, move them along more quickly, and spice it up a bit, so people won’t lose interest. I understand it is taking some time to make the transition, get the characters and storylines in place, but I fear if they take too long people will lose interest. Just trying to give some constructive criticism because I think the show is much better now than it was the last year.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
