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!

Counting down the minutes until the Jay Leno show begins…can’t wait! Love 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.

Ejami as a real couple…who’d have thought this day would really come? But yes, it’s here, and NBC is taking smart advantage of it!

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 tonight show skit! James & Ali were so funny you could tell they were about to laugh at any moment… I’ve really enjoyed EJami’s story on Days & look forward to seeing more promos with them & NBC!

The sketch was so funny. My boyfriend actually laughed out loud when he watched it with me! I love to see the network making the most of Ali Sweeney and James Scott with all of this cross promotion. Way to step it up NBC!

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! Lol

They have been demonstrated to be SO popular that they are now leveraging that fan base and popularity to boost other NBC shows! I say its brilliant cross promotion and they should do it more often!

This is classic Soap Couple marketing and it worked for GH’s L&L and its working for Days’ Ejami too! I am so proud of our long considered ‘under dog” couple. Clearly now that they have been given a chance, they are shining and it seems the network realizes what a golden goose they have with this couple!

Loved the promos and the Jay Leno skit had me in stitches! Ejami: NBC and all your fans say Thank you!!

I am LOVING all the EJami!! The skit was campy and fun, loved it! It’s about time that NBC realized all the potential that they have in EJami and it’s great to see them taking advantage of that finally. 😀

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!!!

Loved it! So soapy and so fun! I’ve loved NBC using Ejami in cross-promotions with other shows. Very market savvy if you ask me!

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.

The Leno skit was a riot, and the promo pieces are fun!!!! It’s all good!!!!!!

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 and James. This recent spate of cross promotional “Ejami-ness” suggest how valuable the Ejami pairing and the actors who embody them are to their parent network.

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.

Absolutely love that NBC is using Ejami to promote other shows Good PR for Days and EJami Loved the skit on Jay Leno Ali/James were awesome!

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.

Linda

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

WATCH: ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Cold Open: ‘Days of our Impeachment’

In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

Courtesy/NBC

In the SNL cold open; Mad Men alum Jon Hamm took on the role of  former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor.  Kate McKinnon reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, while Heidi Gardner played a fainting soapy impeachment hearing attendee.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
