It’s a big night for Days of our Lives EJami fans when Alison Sweeney (Sami) and James Scott (EJ) appear in a skit on tonight’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on NBC!

Sweeney tweeted her fans last night revealing about the duo’s appearance:, “Days peeps! @IamJamesScott & I did a fun sketch w @JayLeno for his show tomorrow night (Tues)! #tunein #uwilllaugh #jamesinarobe #Justsayin”   So translated, that would mean DAYS fans will see James Scott in a robe and clearly something will go down that will make us laugh!

In addition to the guest appearance on The Tonight Show, Ali and James were featured in this new NBC Promo for the network’s new dating reality show which premieres tonight called, Ready For Love, about three bachelors getting dating advice from experts,  in a The Bachelor-esque twist.  Watch the promo after the jump, and make sure to watch The Tonight Show and let us know what you thought of the skit with EJami!

NOT!

I stopped watching this show way back when Rafe and Nicole were in Brady’s Pub talking and the dialogue was like hearing long finger nails on a chalk board. That’s how bad the writing was and most likely, still is. Even as a gay man, I will not watch the show even if Will and Sonny are on. Days’ writing team ruined this show for me.

Taped JL. Will watch later. Nice to see Ali and James promo NBC shows. Good to know NBC realizes how popular they are. Would also be nice to see primetime stars promo Days.

I am so thrilled at the promotion of EJami by NBC. James and Alison have such onscreen chemistry that it is just fun to watch them whatever they are doing. The “Ready For Love” promos are so cute.

Jay Leno and EJami was a winning combination. Late night has now been introduced to Days’ sexiest couple.

Really enjoyed seeing James Scott and Alison Sweeney on The Tonight Show. Jay Leno did a really good job of playing the “I’m in love w/Sami – not really in love w/Sami” piece beautifully and the double drink in the face was hilarious! The candlestick to the face? Priceless!

Loved the skit and loved the RFL promo. The show probably isn’t my cup of tea, but having Alison Sweeney and James Scott promote it as EJ and Sami was a brilliant idea. If there’s hope for them, there really is hope for anyone! Now who do I thank for finally bringing those two crazy kids together? These past couple of months have been a soap fan’s dream come true. 🙂

Loved the skit and promo spots. Reminds me of the day when they’d use the supercouples – like Bope – to promote other NBC shows. Guess that seals it…Ejami is Days new supercouple!!

YES ! It is clear than NBC and Days has gotten the memo: EJAMI GENERATES BUZZ!! They are finally using that buzz in a really smart way and targeting the key demos using this couple to increase viewership on other shows. As someone with a Marketing/Ad back ground my heart jumped when I saw the first RFL promo featuring Ejami! Is it any coincidence that this fictions soap couple has trended TWICE on twitter and took Days with it once…not to mention helping Days trend during the Ejami centric Daysaster story line in the Summer!? Yeah…I did not think so!… Read more »

What can I say anything Ejami I’ll watch. The promo for RL is a great idea because Ali is pretty well known and James is going to be a major star someday. One day we’re going to look back and remember the day when JS was on Leno and laugh because it was smart of NBC to use Ejami to bring the buzz to Late night. Also it was just plain funny in a soapy kinda of way.

My hats off to the writer who wrote such a campy scene. I laughed my arse off!!!
How James, Alison & Jay kept straight faces is beyond me.
That being said. The new show “Ready for Love” can’t be any worse than the Bachelor/Bachlorette series. I think I’ll tune in and check it out!!!
Thanks for the heads up on stuffs Michael!!!

Watched it last light and it was really funny and quintessential soapy fun, and more like a play on how flip floppy relationships on soaps can be.

And I loved Alison Sweeney and James Scott during it!

Go EJAMI!

The last Ready For Love promo was hilarious. Choosing two Days stars to help promote that show was a great idea. I personally would not have paid attention to the promos when they aired if they hadn’t had used JS and AS.

Also loved the Jay Leno skit.

The “Tonight” skit was good campy soap fun! Jay, James, and Ali all did a great job. I have enjoyed the crossover promos for “Ready For Love” with James and Ali. EJami is the perfect couple to show that true love can overcome anything, so that is a good marketing decision.

Feel so bad for Abe, he gets no air time now that his beautiful wife is gone. This show has gone down the tubes, the stories or boring and more ridiculous then ever. Jennifer/Daniel the most boring couple on the planet gets too much airtime!! Nicole who has no real purpose on the show even gets a good amount of airtime. I’m done with this crappy show.

What a fun sketch that was. My husband and I really got a kick out of it. Ali was gorgeous, James was handsome as always, and Jay proved he could start a new career as a soap star. Bully for NBC for providing some great comedy and using their talent so effectively.

Hats off to NBC for its cross promotional efforts that capitalize on the popularity of and fan interest generated by those daytime TV fictional gems Ej and Sami. The Tonight Show skit was a cute and campy cross between a melodramatic DOOL/Ejami interlude and GWTW with a dash of Leno’s own special brand of goofiness thrown in for good measure . Alison, James and Jay all appeared as if they were enjoying their Days spoof. I agree with those who have said that they watched the promos for NBC’s new reality show “Ready For Love” expressly because they featured Alison… Read more »

Loved the skit! It was a lot of fun! Ali was gorgeous and James was handsome as usual ! Glad that NBC is using the most sexy and talented couple on daytime tv to promote their new dating reality show. I might have to check it out just to see what it’s all about even tho I’m not fond of reality tv.

LOVED seeing Ejami getting exposure during prime time. And having NBC cross promote these shows is a good move. I’ll take any Ejami air time I can get, but soaps can only benefit from air time and cross promotion.

I loved the skit and promo. NBC, now the world has seen the most adorable couple on T.V. The huge fan base would love you if we could have a movie with Allison Sweeney and James Scott are at least call Tom Hanks and put a bug in his ear !

This was just soo Hilarious, Loved that NBC promoted Ejami while sending off Jay Leno..I thought Jay was a natural (lol) can never get enought of Alison Sweeney & James Scott together. I too feel they should do a Movie Together, natural Chemistry does not grow on trees..Very talented duo.

I really wish they would get this nightmare of a so called couple off my TV. This has got to be the worst couple with Dan and Jen coming in second.

Can’t watch Days anymore because it is so bad with the abusive couple getting together and in love (getting sick to my stomach) and I won’t be watching Ready for Love either, wrong couple to adverties for a love show

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
