Don’t get me wrong, there’s something special about every soap opera. There’s something extraordinary about the whole genre. But Days of Our Lives is not the best soap opera of all time. The official Days of Our Lives facebook page sent out a call for all the fans to vote. DOOL was the only soap in the whole poll to do that and that is how they won every round of the poll. Without question, had Y&R, GH, or B&B done that, DOOL wouldn’t have won a single round. And if the official One Life to Live page had done… Read more »

I agree, if DOOL fans hadn’t flooded the vote, OLTL would have won. It deserved to win best soap. It was consistently great story telling.

. Until NBC posted on FB for their fans to vote, it was neck to neck. ABC and Prospect Park didn’t care

Pointless Poll. Wow an active soap beats a canceled soap.

I agree it was pointless. Any “brackett” poll is unfair and unreliable.

If they really want to get a true (or at least somewhat more accurate) poll, it needs to be a straight-out “vote for your favorite,” include every soap, and then be well publicized for all soap viewers to have the chance to vote.

The parade poll sounds rigged but who cares it’s a supplement to a newspaper and a bad one at that…

Maybe that is because people could vote countless times. I ignored the poll once I realized this.

I’m really happy that DOOL got this recognition. While OLTL was my favorite of the two, DOOL comes in such a close second that it doesn’t matter to me. And I think both soaps are similar, in that both shows have, at times, been treated like the ugly stepchild, while both shows have also shown good quality over extended periods that are recognized by the fans but not always by the press or TPTB. IMO, DOOL has stayed truer to the core soap values that drew me in to soaps to begin with, qualities that GH and Y&R only sporadically… Read more »

I love One Life to Live. Fans voted for OLTL to show that it is still beloved and we want it back. We voted to show we still care. But ABLSleaze and Propect Park did nothing to help the voting while NBC did. I only watched OLTL AMC and GH . I used to watch some very old soaps no longer on the air, but don’t want to start watching any I have not seen before. I beg PP or ABC or some other entity to bring back our AMC ad OLTL. At the very least one of those channels… Read more »

OLTL is the best soap. I enjoy some of the others, but they will never be as good as One Life to Live. No contest.

ABC really goofed. They need to bring it back.

#OLTL will always be my favorite soap. I’ve watched since the beginning. When you invest that much time into a soap (I’ve watched All My Children since day 1 too), it’s devastating to lose. #OLTL was the red headed stepchild in the ABC lineup for years and to have it place second in this poll and to be ranked higher than any other ABC soap is testament to how wonderful the show is. It taught me tolerance as a young girl from a rich lilly white town that didn’t know the difficulties and experiences of others except through those I… Read more »

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.

Days of our Lives Mike Manning (Charlie) has been one busy actor; not only appearing on the NBC daytime drama series and in the digital drama series, The Bay, but also in the new film Son of the South.
