“Chad visits some old friends in Phoenix”

So that obviously would be Will & Sonny. Which would be a good thing, of course. Aside from that, it sounds like it has the potential to be a return to the epic Days “adventure” storylines of the 80s & 90s.

Now whether ReRon is capable of writing such a thing…. well that’s a whole other question.

I don’t see any date announcement here. When is Peacock supposed to have this available? With a two week gap in Days episodes due to the Olympics, this would the best time to do it.

Could Chads visit to Phoenix really be bringing Steffano back ???

I guess reports of Days of our Lives demise have been greatly exaggerated. This series is ordered like two weeks after you can only see Days repeats on Peacock. Peacock must be seeing something in their numbers that is making them happy.

NBC and Peacock are likely testing out the waters of potentially moving the soap exclusively to streaming, which all networks should consider. Streaming is the proper platform for soaps in order for them to not only continue, but to evolve into something beyond the same recycled, safe stories they’re telling.

For all intents and puposes Days is on its way to being a internet only soap. i expect Peacock will eventually be a day ahead of the network in order to drive more viewers to the site. Also expect more current storylines and backstory of characters to appear on Peacock instead of regular tv. It will bleed viewers from NBC but as long as Days holds on to its small but devoted core audience Peacock wont care because its about pay tv in the long run. Its just one more sign the soaps of my childhood are gone and are… Read more »

Yep. I agree 100% with your observation. After the debut of Peacock suddenly Days is renewed for a longer period of time; TWO years. It doesn’t hurt that the full year stays up all year long now, no two weeks and gone, which was very smart on someone’s part.

Smart is Disney. They own General Hospital. If it goes to streaming it’s all profit for them. You have to wonder how much more successful Days and Peacock would be if NBC would actually promote the show a little.

Also lis the other, right now they have from September to September, the “season”. A smart move. I hope they post this upcoming season while leaving the previous. It’s fantastic watching at your own pace. People are loving it I assume or it wouldn’t have got a two year deal.

I certainly hope it’s free on Peacock.
I look forward to Lisa Rinna. If only Ben and Ciara would come across Hope in New Orleans. Wishful thinking.

This is great news for Days. I think the webisodes with Chad and Abby was very successful. Beyond Salem is taking that concept to the next level. Congratulations Days of our Lives.

I had a STROKE when I began to read: “Ben and Claire have a romantic getaway…” Then I had to recover in the ICU before I realized that it’s Ben and Ciara.

It would be awesome if NBC ordered a DAYS spinoff that focused on the ISA. It could be a procedural similar to NCIS, CSI & FBI, just more soapy and with higher drama. Lisa Rinna and Charles Shaughnessy could be the main stars, and it would provide so many opportunities for DAYS crossovers and characters who aren’t on the main show to still be in the universe.

I’m invested in the M-F show and characters, some I don’t see often because focus is often on this writing teams personal favs, I don’t care to see characters not on primary show. I will not pay for Peacock & when or if, Days moves to streaming if network show doesn’t improve I will be fine discontinuing. I enjoy GH on Hulu & YR on Paramount.

‘The View’s’ Sunny Hostin & Ana Navarro Test Positive for COVID-19; Asked to Leave Studio Ahead Of V.P. Kamala Harris Interview

This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

All of this happened before a live interview was scheduled to happen with Vice President Kamala Harris.  It was revealed that Hostin and Navarro tested positive for Covid-19, and were ‘breakthrough” cases since they had been previously vaccinated.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

Mike Richards Out as EP of ‘Jeopardy!’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’

What has become of the beloved game show treasure Jeopardy!, since the death of its iconic Alex Trebek, will surely at some point be made into a movie with backstage drama galore and breaking headlines news all along the way.

Now comes an official statement from Sony Pictures Television that they have now let-go of Mike Richards from his duties as executive producer of both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.

This comes after Richards controversial choice as the new syndicated host amid allegations, lawsuits and what seemed to be the final straw, The Ringer’s report and findings of insensitive and sexist comments made by Richards on The Randumb Show, a podcast he hosted in 2013 and 2014.

Suzanne Prete, EVP, Business and Strategy, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, sent out an internal note to the staff on both shows this morning. The content included that Richards would depart his EP roles effective immediately and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies stepping in to do the job on an interim basis.

According to Deadline, the note read as follows:

Dear Team,

I’m writing to let you know that Mike will no longer be serving as EP of Wheel and Jeopardy! effective immediately.  We had hoped that when Mike stepped down from the host position at Jeopardy! it would have minimized the disruption and internal difficulties we have all experienced these last few weeks. That clearly has not happened.  Michael Davies from Embassy Row has agreed to help with production on an interim basis until further notice. Michael and I will work together with all of you in the weeks ahead to ensure that production remains on schedule and we do not miss a beat as we head into the new season.

I know this has been a challenging time for the entire team, and I want to thank you all for your cooperation and professionalism over these last few weeks. As Ravi mentioned last week, I will be more involved in the day-to-day on our shows moving forward and I am looking forward to working closely with all of you.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything. 

So, what do you think of all the twists and turns that have now led to Richards ousting as host and his EP duties on two game show? Comment below.
