After the big Kristen wedding reveal and her leaving, I think everyone was concerned how they would keep the momentum going. But they sure have! They have delivered in every way!

Kudos to everyone over at Sony/NBC and DAYS! Great work by everyone involved!

After the firing of Michael Muhney, from Y&R, Jan. 30th is the last time this Y&R fan will watch. DOOL sounds like a great replacement. Will check it out on Jan. 31st. Good to know.
Thank you once again Michael Fairman for your positive spin on what is really going on. You do good work.

I think Days is going to stay strong with the stories they are putting forth now. The Ej and Abby affair was a shockingly fun twist that can’t help but make one want to see how it plays out. Nick is he dead or isn’t he (? ) keeps me engaged and I love the sweet romance they’ve put forth with Rafe and Jordan! I’m enjoying they’ve now included Lucas and Sheryl into Jordan’s mystery opening up the canvas to make that an intriguing tale. Great work Days!

DOOL is the best of the four network daytime serials thanks to he focus the lead characters — EJ, Daniel, Jennifer, and Abby. Should the writing team create a compelling story to lure Peter Reckells back to daytime and cast a new dashing young actor as Shawn-Douglas, the audience will continue to grow significantly.

Lena

Since when did Abby become a lead character?

Or Jennifer? To me the main characters are EJ, Sami, Nicole, Daniel, Brady and Eric! Who else agrees?

Wow, from the comments I’ve been reading Days sounds like the place to go after 1/30 if Michael Muhney has not returned to Y&R. For me, after being a Y&R viewer from day 1 there will be no more Y&R/CBS/Sony. Counting the days….

I don’t want to spoil this and say you’ll be free from 2/3 when you come to DAYS, but DAYS IS a WAAAAY better show than YR! You should start watching now because the major stories are just starting up again. It’s the soap to watch for sure!

The Ej and Abby rendezvous has kept me watching and wanting to see more of what happens between them. Good soapy stuff. Keep up the momentum Days, and we will keep watching!

Emily

Good for Days!!:) I’m hooked and enjoying it. Have been watching since circa ’83. I like the storylines, how the characters interact/changed up, it flows. For me the rgt amt of drama, soapiness and the shenanigans (brings a little bit of the funny:)

The Abigail and EJ love scene was smoking. I’m not looking at them as a couple per say, but enjoying that twist in the story line. Yowza, when Sami finds out….

Keep it up!!

Kelly

Always has been and always will be my favorite soap!!!

Sooo happy that the world is starting to see that daytime tv is still alive!! I have always watched DAYS but the s/l’s are sooo intriguing, it’s better than most shows at night! I love the Eric and Nicole love story..who doesn’t want to see a priest–who was drugged and raped by his future sister in law and accused his first true love of raping him–end up falling in love once again!???!! This is pure soapiness at its best!!! Keep it up DAYS:)

Dmitri

Woot woot! Days has been doing so well! Between the Daniel-Eric-Nicole love triangle-ish stuff to the shocking but very hot love scenes between EJ and Abigail. Now, with Rafe and Jordan getting together and Lucas getting more scenes with Sheryl, things are only going to get better.

“…The folks in Salem have received a wonderful New Year’s present with their latest ratings! ”

Isn’t this a further testament… to how good it is to be : in Salem!

yes it is!

Ta-Da!

there is no cast shock… no bait and switch… no waiting for story advancement, comparable to the other 3 shows… the whole cast expertly weave themselves throughout the canvas… and I’m giddy and can watch the whole hour… and still dream… along

Days of OUR Lives… for Year 2014… will reign us all in… for intrigue… awe… and fascinate us with the actors skills… and comparable on par writing… to maintain… best show… and must repeat… as best show… at this years Emmys!

Jeanie

In my personal opinion “Days” always was the number one show! Got hooked with Ejaylor and now just can’t wait for each episode – and OMG isn’t it exciting now!!! Love Nicole, Daniel, Eric triangle but can’t WAIT to see what happens with EJabbie!!
PS – have never like EJami (although I do like Alison Sweeney, just not her character)!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

In the latest promo for DAYS, look for Sonny to also lower the boom on Maggie with another deserved outburst and a homecoming for Will and Sonny.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Freddie and Camila? What do you hope happens to Maggie after her remembrance of the night of the crash is revealed? What will Xander (Paul Telfer) and Victor (John Aniston) to next and all of their plans seem to be unraveling? Comment below.  But first check out the scene from Friday between Camila and Freddie, and this week’s promo for DAYS>

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
