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!

Victoria Konefal Returns to Days of our Lives

Cin fans will be happy to know the other half of the DAYS super couple will be back on-screen later this month as Ben (Rob Scott Weston) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) love story is set to continue.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

When the missing in action Ciara returns she will bring with her a new character named Rhodes played by Jason Downs.

No word on how long Konefal’s stay will be this time, since she has been off-contract with the show since last year.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.
