On-Air On-Soaps recently attended a sneak peek preview of the new Horton Town Square set from Days of our Lives. As part of the reset of the show coming September 26th, the invited press were able to get a bird’s-eye view of the very large and open space that is very similar to some of the more upscale outdoor malls you may see in anywhere U.S.A.

We can tell you that the Horton Town Square, named after the shows beloved couple, Tom and Alice Horton, will be at the epicenter for much drama, intrigue and romance in the months to come.

Some of the show’s biggest staples including: Deidre Hall (Marlena) Drake Hogestyn (John), Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Peter Reckell (Bo), Galen Gering (Rafe) Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) were at NBC that day to celebrate the unveiling of the Horton Town Square, and the upcoming relaunch of Salem!  Also part of the day were newcomers, Kate Mansi (Abigail) and Freddie Smith (Sonny), and DAYS newest big league addition, Sarah Brown (Madison), plus returning favorite Patrick Muldoon (Austin).

So as the press were having a field day shooting your favorite from Salem, we took a few shots to share with you in our special photo gallery that you can view after the jump!   Look for our very special blog on the day with interviews with the cast coming this week and find out what they had to say about the new DAYS, and what you can expect from the gang in Salem!

Fantastic pics – looks just like the old Days – the one we all know and love. Particularly thrilled at the return of John and Marlena. I stopped watching after they abruptly left. I’m back now and excited for the reset in September.

My favorite wasn’t there. Bryan Dattilo as Lucas Horton should be there. No Dattilo, No Days, its that simple. Lucas is a Horton, he should be in the cast. I thought the plans were to get Days back to the way it was, how can those plans not include Bryan Dattilo as Lucas Horton? Bryan needs to be invited back before I will come back as a viewer. I know many others who feel the same way. Just look on twitter and you’ll see.

Was hoping to see Lucas return to Salem. After all, he is a Horton. And Bryan Dattilo is among the familiar faces fans have come to expect to see when they turn to Days. It is disappointing to see that Austin and Carrie are coming back, (Sami is already there) yet no plans for a Lucas return…it’s not quite complete.

The set looks great…now if only Days would bring back Bry D. I’d definitely start watching again then

You are completely right! Bryan is a Horton, he should have been brought back. Too bad I’m not going to be seeing all these changes. 🙁 Maybe when tptb finally realize they need Bryan back.

I agree! Nadia should be on! I can think of many more actors that have only been on 5 years or less that should have gone before her.

The fact that Jack Deveraux is coming back is what’s bringing me back to watching the soap come September. That, and I hope that they eventually repair the EJami dynamic.

That must have been fun since the prima donna, Allison(Sami), was not in attendance. I am so sick of seeing her face day in and day out. She needs to be put on a far back burner for a while. Now THAT would be a burst of fresh air!

I am really hoping that Days will now improve and get it right. Glad they have a new set, and are going to make major changes in story lines and character development. Hopefully, the actors from the past will be able to reinvigorate the show. I have not watched in months and actually, would like to watch again. Look forward to the changes. I don’t expect perfection, but I hope the show will be good!

So glad to see that TPTB are giving the fans what they want! Love, Romance, and HISTORY! Would love to see Bryan Dattilo back on air too! Kate needs all her kids in town.

I am happy to have Jack back too. Hopefully they fix this stupid storyline of him leaving Jenn! Have him kidnapped and help hostage for all I care, just make it right! Love Magic and State. Very happy to see John and Marlena together and in Love! So much better than NuJohn!

DAYS Billy Flynn, Greg Rikaart & Mary Beth Evans Talk On: Abigail’s Murderer Revealed, Orpheus’ Poisonous Plot & the Move to Peacock

September had been a pivotal month for Days of our Lives.  After nearly 57-years on broadcast television, the long-running soap opera shifted from NBC to exclusively streaming on Peacock.  While fans have been adjusting and wrapping their heads around the change, the stories of the characters you love to love, or love to hate, are continuing to play out in Salem.

This week, after months of a whodunit and who is to blame for the death of Chad’s wife, Abigail DiMera, DAYS fans finally learned that the actual killer was none other than Clyde Weston (James Read).  Meanwhile, Kayla has taken ill along with Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate (Lauren Koslow), all a part of Orpheus’ (George DelHoyo) longstanding feud with the women and the men in their lives.

Now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, DAYS stars: Billy Flynn (Chad), Greg Rikaart (Leo) and Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) discuss their latest storylines, plus their thoughts on the soaps move on Peacock and its future.

As viewers witnessed on recent episodes, Chad figured out that it was Clyde who murdered Abigail, and went after him with a gun. Chad decided he wanted to hear the entire sordid story of how Clyde killed her.  This led to the showdown scenes at Abigail’s gravesite which included a visit by EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), who saved his brother from Clyde. During this interview, Billy weighs-in on taping the climatic scenes, what it was like to blame multiple characters for months for Abigail’s death, plus what the future holds in store for Chad as he moves on with his life post-Chabby.

Greg Rikaart shares his thoughts on if he ever thought Leo would turn out to be Abigail’s murderer since Leo had a revenge plot against those who wronged him. Rikaart also weighs-in on the story where Leo had a relationship with Craig Wesley, his enduring on-screen relationship with Emily O’Brien (Gwen, ex-Jana, Y&R) , plus working with Billy in the limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem, where Chad goes in drag as “Belinda Chinashop” and more.

Mary Beth talks on Kayla’s latest plight; that  being kidnapped by Orpheus along with Marlena and Kate, the good doctor has become very sick while trying to maintain order at University Hospital.  Evans also shares her thoughts on the arrival of Abigail Klein as her on-screen daughter Stephanie, the departure of Marci Miller as Abigail, and more.

Check out our full interview with Billy, Greg and Mary Beth below, and make sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Michael Fairman Channel for more celebrity interviews, music videos, game shows and special event coverage.

Now let us know, what did you think of Clyde being revealed as Abigail’s true killer? What did you think of the confrontation scenes between Billy Flynn and James Read? What has been your favorite Leo moment since Greg came to DAYS?  Will Kayla figure out what Orpheus has done to her and others?

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.
