I didnt know Deidre Hall was missing…lol…i thought ‘Where They Are Now’ was about tv celebs and news makers, athletes ect., we haven’t heard from or seen in ages…we all know where DH has been including staring on primetimes ‘Our House’ many moons ago…there should be a ‘Where They Are Now’ on this message board once a month featuring former daytime and primetime soap stars from soaps past and present…j.a.t.!!!

su0000, Deidre has had a huge following since 1976. In the early 1980’s, her character was “killed” by the Salem Strangler (a favorite storyline of jimh). Her fans were in such a frenzy over the “death of Marlena” that they stormed NBC with protests which made the national news! Supposedly, Deidre had to take to phone calls to assure the fans everything would work out…Marlena’s twin sister Sam (Deidre’s real life twin Andrea) was the one murdered by the Salem Strangler!! Marlena has caused a lot of arguments within my family for many years…most of us like her, including me,… Read more »

Agreed! I don’t understand how Oprah chooses the celebrities to showcase. Many of them are still working and in the public eye.

@suOOO I know you are kidding but you might want to thank Ms Hall for helping put daytime on the map! Her chemistry with Jed Allen, Wayne Northup & Drake Hogestyn help put super couples on the map in other words she is what made daytime great ! Romance which is what Daytime use to be about she is responsible for helping put love in the afternoon. I salute you Ms. Hall!!!!!

jimh, I believe Marlena was introduced as Mickey’s psychiatrist after Mickey shot Bill when it was revealed that Bill was actually Mike’s father…BTW, in case you didn’t already know, John Amour (Michael Horton #7) recently died just shy of his 55th birthday. He played MH from 1971-1973. I would assume the first several Mike’s were babies.

I saw a tribute to him at Jason47’s Days Website/Facebook

I was loathe to post on this message board but I agree with you @jimh(leave it to beaver)…I too SMH at some of the celebrities featured that managed to stay in your face..but I really watched to see Kathy Kinney from the Drew Carey show who reminds me sooo much of a friend and girl I worked with years ago as servers in Red Lobster who was from Parma Ohio…she was a true MIMI. But it was interesting and a LOL moment when Diedre Hall was on the set of her favorite set..The Brady pub and pointed out that whole… Read more »

This is dumb Deidre is the most beautiful actress in daytime.
The question should be where is Oprah!

I wish Oprah would have picked someone who is actually missing, like Eileen Fulton, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Barbara Rodell, etc. I was an ATWT fan in case you cannot tell.

Oh Deidre still around and looking great! I will never forget when she got off an airplane and I was boarding one and tons of fans were there to meet her at the gate. She had on this great outfit and I had no idea what was going on I did a double take and she had this great smile on her face. That was during the Salem strangler storyline. I was a youngster and very mad that I was leaving town and she was in town I believe for a fan event.

Yes, jimh, Michael Fairman should have a “Where Are They Now?”

Speaking of Michaels…Where in the world is Michael Leon (Pete Jannings) and Michael T. Weiss (Mike Horton)?

Those that appear on this show, are people that were one time on her talk show…and had some life changing event. If you think more along the lines of “what have they done since” it makes more sense.

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
