These Winter Olympics will be a lot more exciting than watching the horrible and boring story lines on DOOL.

I will not be watching the Olympics. BUT I haven’t been watching DOOL for the past 2 weeks. So sick of the devil story.

I feel the same! It’s so lame to have the devil in our soap opera-like the writers don’t have an imagination and have to copy previous ideas?

Why can’t they take this Olympics to the sports network an leave the local stations alone

Well, it’s not like anything else is going to be on TV either. Half the TV shows were already on their so-called “winter break” that goes from the week before Thanksgiving until March anyways.

So it’s Olympics…. two more Sundays of football, and everything else for the next 3 weeks is either reruns or dumb “reality” dragonshit… or maybe that’s reruns too, but I don’t ever watch it. It only airs in Hell as a means of eternal torment.

I will not watch the olympics, but I really am not upset that the stories won’t be on for two weeks, because I am so sick of the devil story line and by the Xander and Gwen story line, that is the same thing, over and over, walking around half naked and in bed constantly.

I love the Olympics. I can’t wait to see them complete. I will, however come back to watching DOOL after the games are over.

Oh barf! It’s disgusting that we’re sending athletes from USA there to this communist country! It should be banned not shown on any tv and certainly not send any USA citizens there at all!

anne
Guest

Natasha – As for banning these Olympic Games from any tv, if you don’t like the idea of the Olympics being in China then DON’T watch them. The US citizens going to China’s Olympics DO NOT require your permission to do so.

Jody

I love watching the Olympics, but I agree with Judy R. I have been a DOOL fan since I was 12 year’s old. I will continue to watch until I die or they end the soap, hopefully the later of the two.

Satan

I can’t believe these Olympics are even going forward…. between Omicron, the boycotts and now NBC pulling all their correspondents and presumably narrating from a studio in NYC over remote video feeds??

It’s going to be a complete dragonshit show…. and not worthy of taking Days off the air for two weeks. Hell, just put the episodes on Peacock… that’s how I get it down here in Hell these days anyhow.

anne
Guest
anne

Satan – taking DOOL off the air for two weeks will give the writers time to come up with some story lines worth watching. Seriously, how many times do the writers have to use the same old Devil plot line?

Satan
Guest
Satan

That might be a valid argument…. if the show wasn’t taped 6 months in advance. If NBC were to pull the Olympics tomorrow, Days wouldn’t miss a step, since they already have the episodes completed. It’s also the reason why Days didn’t have any extended absence of new episodes in 2020, even though the COVID pandemic shut down production. The summer Olympics were cancelled that year, but Days kept on rolling. Worst thing that happened to the show was that they had to really double (or even triple) down on the flashbacks as they got to the end of their… Read more »

I won’t be watching the Olympics. I could never understand why the do this. Isn’t that what sports channels are for. They can’t dedicate one or two NBC channels just for sports. It’s just like when they break in with political news or something . Ist that what Msnbc, CSNBC AND CNN are for. If you wanna watch the Olympics then go to the sports channel. I for one will NOT be Watching the Olympics especially the Winter Olympics. Guess it’s Netflix, Hulu and prime video for me the whole month of February

So we will have 2 full weeks with no “Days”. Since I don’t get local channels and I watch “Days” on peacock I will not be watching the Olympics. And I don’t understand why it can’t be on at a different time slot at least for one of the weeks. Why does it have to take two full weeks of my “Days” away. Hurry back “Days”.

anne
Guest
anne

As far as I am concerned, Days can stay gone until the writers come up with logical well thought out plot lines worth watching. There is a reason the British Coronation Street is the world’s longest running Soap Opera. Days writers should learn from the writers on Coronation Street.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Well, fortunately for the Brits, Coronation Street airs on ITV. If it were a BBC show, it would probably be preempted by the Olympics as well.

I think the Olympics should be on a sports channel where you can watch it if you want but are free to watch your regularly scheduled programming at their regular time…..

Connie

I just don’t understand with as many NBC Sports Channels, WHY preempt the Regular NBC Channel with DOOL on it ? Leave some of us that doesn’t watch “sports” of any kind some of our favorite!!!

Cathy Nikel

I will be jonesing for my DOOL FIX everyday so never miss my daily dose of DOOL if I am unable to sit and watch it at 1:00 est I am ok because it records automatically. I guess I’ll be watching reruns of law and order during the Olympics because o am not a fan of the Olympics: I do not look fwd the this. Why can’t they put them on FOX instead of them just NOT BEING THE ON AT ALL!!!!!!!

I’m totally not interested in the Olympics taking Days of for pretty much a month isn’t cool. My thoughts on the Olympic games is they should’ve cancelled it do to pandemic happen there and now around the world. It’s bad enough we’re being told we can’t do this and that now we can’t watch Days come on get serious here. Why should we be forced to watch Olympics and not Days. Grrr!

Irony there is that NBC/Scumcast has a channel that is literally called “The Olympics Channel”.

You would think they could use such a channel for obvious purposes. But then, nobody ever accused the biggest (and most hated) media oligopoly in the US of being “logical”.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Susan, I feel the same regarding sports shows even though I do enjoy the Winter Olympics. Sports seem to invade everywhere, even on supposed entertainment shows. Sometimes, half of ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT is taken up with sports news, when the passing of screen legends like Olivia deHavilland, Kirk Douglas, and playwright Neil Simon are given a paltry minute or two. I don’t get the imbalance. I mean, I wouldn’t turn on ESPN and expect to hear a movie review!

The show films months in advance. They should have put the show on Peacock for the next two weeks to add more subscribers to Peacock, and had a one hour summary show to have the network viewers catch up when the Olympics ended.

I have been watching Dool since the summer of 82? I know all the main story lines,and love the show very much. But I also love the winter games as well. Yes I will watch all of the Olympics, and when they are over, welcome Salemites back with open arms!! FYI, I am saving up all the shows from now until Feb 3, so I can watch them 15 mins at a time to get my Dool fix throughout the awesome Olympics!!

Satan
Guest

Nobody mentioned “Sonny and the mob” in this thread until you just did…. but (assuming you’re referring to GH) I expect there will be a gain in the ratings for GH in the markets where it airs the same time as Days, and many viewers will probably switch over, rather than watch whatever Olympic events are airing on NBC at the time.

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.

Days of our Lives Receives WGA Nomination for Daytime Drama Series

UPDATED: On Wednesday, the nominations were unveiled for the 75th annual Writers Guild Awards to be held on Sunday, March 5 at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

Writers Guild of America West and Writers Guild of America East announced nominations for outstanding achievement in television, new media, news, radio/audio, and promotional writing during 2022.

Schock.

DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati shared in a statement: “My team and I are thrilled to be nominated for the 2023 Writers Guild Award for Daytime.  We submitted three scripts from the storyline about Craig’s late-in-life coming out, the impact it had on his wife, Nancy, and of course, his ill-fated romance with the ever-scheming Leo.
