As a fan of DAYS, I am satisfied with the writing, but can’t deny the improved writing of GH.
I just hope YawneR does not win!

I don’t think any networks broadcast the Writers Guild of America Awards. They all assume the general public only cares about the famous faces of actors and actresses, and the occasional well-known director, not the scribes who actually create the lines!

All the writers who elected ficore status during the last writer’s strike are not eligible for WGA awards. Tomlin, Josh Griffith and Paula Cwikly from YR are missing from the rosters this year because they are all ficore status. Jeanne Marie Ford is missing from the nominees too.

For a few years Y&R has not been all that good, not at all..
Without fail, no matter how bland it is it holds #1 constantly for two decade, or so..
The odds of that happening are ………………………. ??

Perhaps CBS has some type of influence..

my original comment: GH is my first choice, Days my second choice but Nicks story and ‘death’ almost makes it a tie for me! Days Abigail will have an affair with E.J. and not Danial who i once predicted…its just a feeling i have after the way they were looking at each other in a previous episode! I could be wrong!

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
