Yes, I participated and am an avid Days watcher, but voted for OLTL. I’m happy Days won if OLTL couldn’t win. These days, DAYS is HOT HOT HOT!!!!

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 that, OLTL would have won the entire poll. But alas, that’s not what happened, and so DOOL won the poll. Yet there is something so exceptional about the soap that made it to the final round without even being on the air.

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.

Have watched Days from the beginning and it will always be the “best daytime drame” with the best actors in television.

Thank You… I so agree with you.

it’s often times hard to explain why…. DAYS is better than the other 4…. given how the “other” three are so heralded…..

blah, blah, blah….

CBS – get over yourself…. after today…. sink…. never was #1 in my book
GH…. yikes… dote on about FV and RC… and the yawn 50th

DAYS – Sony – NBC : has made DOOL… must see….

everything about their product…. production is superlative… for the last 2 years… steamy and ALL !!!!

giddy DAYS! lovin it

they take such care… in hiring good actors…. (I digress some… w/Daniel and Gabs) but… they nevertheless fit – Jenn makes me ad nauseum, grans jewel

quality actors who shine… even in lackluster times… and it’s above board and on par expertise showcase

I’m loving the horizon…. with Kristen, Eve… and a must is more Shane and Kimberly

tantalizing stuff…..

now… let’s see more Justin, Adrienne, and Kayla… and i’ll soapbox that much more

truly the best cast who are an act unto themselves

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 celebrate anymore.

I hope ALL the remaining shows continue on as long as possible and continue to grow stronger. I’ll miss OLTL and AMC always, but having DOOL around makes me one happy soap fan.

Yes, I participated, but I voted for OLTL. Miss it soooo very much and yes…….I still watch the old video on youtube. Still love John McBain & Natalie Buchanan and Rex & Gigi.

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 like TV Guilde take over the old shows Soapnet Re-ran.

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 saw in Llanview.

Much changed through the 43 1/2 years in Llanview but it was always the same in that it was there for me every weekday. I still hope that one day it will be there for me and all the other One Lifers again.

All of the networks should look at this and realize that OLTL should still be on the air!!!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
