McClain replaces Melissa Reeves, who is for now in Nashville with her family during the coronavirus pandemic. Since Cady’s DAYS debut she has received high praise from viewers and pundits, many of whom are so happy to see her back on their screens again after loving her as Pine Valley’s Dixie, or Oakdale’s Rosanna.

Over the weekend, Cady tweeted her gratitude to the fans for welcoming her into the Salem family sharing: “Thank you all very much for your support! I am happy to help keep #jackandjen front and center… wait till you see what Matt Ashford does with this story! He really shines! Proud to be a part of this terrific cast .”and show!

 

And fans should stay tuned as Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer’s relationship is rocked, as the story involving the content of the letter, and Jack and Kate’s (Lauren Koslow) secret comes to light, setting the stage for drama, drama, and more drama this week as the series celebrates its 55th annuverary.
So, what do you think of Cady’s performances of Jennifer so far? Glad she is taking on the role? Comment below, but first check out this week’s extended promo for DAYS featuring Cady and Matthew and a big ole’ slap!

She needs to stick around; am loving her in the role, and cannot wait to see what comes next in the storyline. Not to mention, she has fantastic chemistry with the cast, especially Matthew Ashford (who I am not a huge fan of).

Sorry, was trying to give her a chance, but she isn’t good. Not as bad as the replacement Kristen Dimera from Eileen Davidson but it’s bad. Plus she needs to lay off the Botox…. I just hope Missy Reeves comes back soon!!!

Adam, take a flying leap! You say her acting stinks and her looks are bad? I’d love to see what you look like!

Violet, I didn’t say her acting stinks, I just said she wasn’t good in that role. I also didn’t say her looks are bad, I just said she needs to lay off the Botox… I think you need to stop reading into things and go take the flying leap yourself.

Missy Reeves, despite the PR spin, is in the proverbial dog house. I will be very surprised if DOOL brings Missy back any time soon. NBC is still dealing with the loud backlash as a result of Missy’s publicly stated views about BLM.

Contrary to your opinion, I think that Cady is brilliant in the role of Jennifer. Long May Cady stay!
The comment about Boxtox is both insensitive AND uncalled for. Your personal approval of Cady’s appearance is not required or requested.

Appreciate your comment. As I happen to like Cady. I guess my buttons got pushed when he said “she isn’t good and to lay off the Botox”

not one questionable “commentary” look how quickly other characters get to respond… no waiting… no long camera pan… truthfully.. i’m still caught up in the election, covid, interruption galore… so affecting my viewing habit from what i’m catching up on…. Cady’ got it… and Jack is responding!!! i hope to be back up to speed, when Ava returns !!!! at the very least my new couple that i was rooting for from the start, may be back on track… and that’s the lighted up blossom of Tripp and Ali. “YOUNG LOVE” stirring two qualified acts , hit the skids and… Read more »

Current Days of our Lives and former All My Children reboot stars, Cady McClain (Jennifer, Days, Ex-Dixie, AMC) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, Days, Ex-Pete AMC) chat with Michael Fairman in an enlightening and exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
