Sign me up as one of the fans who think this is a good marriage. Ron’s style and DAYS’ flavor are going to be a match like no other. Remember when the show was celebrating it’s 50th and how it turned into “must-see-TV” for a little while? Well, we’re going to be given back that same high dose of excitement and stories that will keep us tuning in every day but swearing at our TV screens because just when we think a payoff is going to happen, Ron will throw in another curve to keep us waiting. That’s what he… Read more »

Of course I’m tuning in! I’m a fan of DAYS, 4ever!

I look forward to Ron’s writing and think I’ll be very pleased! And it would be so mean, mean, mean if other viewers don’t give Ron’s DAYS a chance!!!

As far as I’m concerned, Ron can start (or whatever) by getting rid of that ANNOYING AND PATHETIC WASTE OF SPACE Dario…QUICKLY!!!!!

This clearly shows the level of desperation all parties have to try to save Days, which is this-close to cancellation. This man is extremely overrated, IMO. I mean, people don’t call him “ReRon” for nothing. His nonsensical, repetitive, cartoonish, plot driven brand of writing is not my cup of tea and it nearly destroyed GH two years ago before he mercifully got fired. Even worse, he can’t take any constructive criticism and takes shots at fans on Twitter who don’t kiss his fanny with gushing praise for his work. That’s disgraceful and highly unprofessional. Hasn’t Days been destroyed enough before… Read more »

Awesome post Nick! Those were my first thoughts too! However…a whole other thread started in my brain that could only be titled A Tale of Two Soaps. I look back to much of his work on One Life to Live with fondness. He wrote for the vets on that show. He honoured and paid homage to the past on many occasions. The show had focus and clarity. He wrote stories of romance for all age groups. Then…came his version of GH, which I still shudder and cringe at. He astoundingly gutted the heart and soul right out of that show… Read more »

I love Ron’s writing and GH is way worse now than it ever was and I thought he did a great job. Every writer and producer and even the actors receive a barrage of “criticism” daily- so good for him taking a few shots in self-defense. Let’s not forget that head writers take their direction from the executive producer and other higher-ups whose demands must be adhered to. Some people learn from their mistakes and continue to change and grow and improve. Others, especially, it seems some of the posters on here- do not. Ron has been given a great… Read more »

I always credited Ron with bringing back the vets to GH which Guza chased off. He “saved” Robin from dying and accommodated the actress’s limited availability by a unique (yes drawn out but not his choosing) kidnapping scheme that brought back old time villains Jerry and Faison. He brought Anna Devane back! And also brought back Bobbie, Scotty, Lucy, Kevin, Felicia, Laura (for limited appearances), Duke, and Lucas. He also helped build up the Quartermaine’s … AJ came back, he wrote a great exit for Edward’s passing, Tracy and Monica were given storylines or at least involved in storylines, Ned… Read more »

The only thing that can save Days at this point
Is to bring back the vets. Peter back as Bo, Shawn b
Belle,and Jack!! I’d love to see Days mend fences
With Vivian and bring her back.

I have full confidence that he will make DAYS exciting again like it was in the 80’s and 90’s. I only got hooked on OLTL and GH when he was head writer so the third time should be the charm for soap fans across the board.

Best of luck to Ron. I would love to see the show get back to “Must see” like when Ben was the murderer a few years back. I hope Ron’s style is to stop the killings and kidnappings. I no longer care about Nicole being kidnapped or being held hostage because it has been done so many times. Here are a few things I would to see: 1. Bring back Phillip and Mimi. 2. Peter Blake would fill the hole that has been missing since EJ left. 3. Carrie needs to be a major character/lawyer in town. I have always… Read more »

I totally agree with your comments about Eve. Kassie DePaiva is a wonderfully talented actress. Ron C. is aware of that from his time at One Life to Live. I hope the Days powers that be allow him to fully expand Eve with Kassie.

I also agree about the sets. I’m so sick of seeing that pitiful town square and the even more pitiful park. Pay for some sets folks!!!!!!!!

So far, not impressed. I don’t need two Marlena’s and now I hear Adrienne will pull double duty. I don’t care if they’re different characters, I don’t like or want it.

I’m excited for this because I’ve been a fan of Ron’s writing for a long time. I was very excited when he came on to GH and turned the show around. Yes, his writing can be over the top sometimes, but one thing is for sure: when he’s writing for a show, it’s never boring. Which is exactly what GH has become under Jean & Shelly, and what DAYS was like up until now. However, how many “Dawn of a New DAYS” promises have been dolled out in the last few years? The same promise was given in 2011, 2012… Read more »

PLEASE rehabilitate Zander!! Paul Telfer is too good an actor (and eye candy) to not play a leading man.

Zander is super hot, and I’m sure Ron C. will write for him just for that reason lol.

I’m unclear if the current shows are written by Mr. C. I hope not because they’re awful. Rehashing 25-year old story lines isn’t the way to go IMHO. 1. we either remember the first go-round. Or new folks are left wondering why this is happening. Every one is said to have a double. But give us a break, no one has an IDENTICAL double.

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
