Just as Salem is ringing in 2018, NBC has unvelied its latest promo, this one ushering onto the canvas, Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher!

In it, the former General Hospital favorite (Ex-Nikolas Cassadine) clearly makes an impact on a New Year’s shindig with his stunning entrance.

The promo tells viewers that Christopher’s new character is sexy and ruthless, two traits that mean D-I-M-E-R-A!  As noted from Soap Opera Digest, Christopher is playing the new character, Stefan O. DiMera, and DAYS fans get their first glimpses of him next week on the January 2nd episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

Tyler Christopher….so glad to see him again. He sometimes comes off arrogant but overall he is a great addition to this show but let’s get real, this means nothing without Louise Sorel as Vivian. She is the reason this will all be so tasty. Happy New Year Ron Carlivati, you brought back what I loved about DAYS……excitement, fun and something worth watching.

I cant wait to see Louise Sorel/Vivian….

Oh, Jimmy, my friend….I just caught up….the best show given by no other than our queen Vivian!!!!!
Oh, my, my , my….How rich and sweet was the caricature of Lady of the castle executed?….
“Andre– we must have lunch….your treat……”, said she, LOL. I could never get enough of Ms Sorel’s Vivian.
She, certainly, did not disappoint!! She never fails to “hold court” with flair and style.
Tyler, as Stefan O (Octavian) wasn’t too shabby either. …..strong presence which commanded respect. Kudos!!
Hmmmm…Octavian is an adaptation of the number ‘eight’ …..it is an Italian name, in a sense…..carrying the name of a paternal grandfather and so forth down the line….. Could Stefan O be Stefano the VIII? Eight Stefanos before him?? ….we never know with these writers.
I still believe Stefano is alive ……I bet Vivian and Stefan O know exactly where he is??
Some posters do believe it is a fallacy….no way can Stefano ( Joseph Mascolo) be ‘duplicated’. I agree, albeit it could still happen.

Tell them, Jimmy….tell them you want payment for continuously using your ideas….LOL.

I think he will fill the hole the show has felt since EJ left a few years back. I am looking forward to this storyline and would love to see him end up with…Hope.

Celia
Celia

Oh, my gosh, b’gosh, Ray!! I don’t wish Hope on anyone. The woman is so ‘ramrod’ straight ( reminds me of Sister Mary Margaret) , I think the only emotion she shows is the arching of one eyebrow.
She never used to be soooo ‘unbendingly’ stiff……

Yes, Mateo, DAYS is a smorgasbord…There is plenty of variety that the viewers can feast their eyes on while the performers sink their teeth into! I’ll have the sauteed salmon in Salem!!

Wickedly entertaining!!!

Yeeesss, 4ever….”wickedly entertaining”… I lke that…perfetto!!!! Thanks to Vivian!

Again they are using my idea…sometime ago i suggested Robin Strasser come on as Lee Dumonde who has a long lost child by Stephano…but its Vivian instead…this is the second story idea of mine…the other being David and Valerie had a child together..i like it!!!!!.

Preach Mateo! Ron Carlivati is the only reason I came back to DAYS after 20 years. Ron is a wonderful writer who isn’t afraid to “go there” with storylines. He adds humor, mystery, great drama, and exciting twists. He brought life to both OLTL and GH and as we’ve all witnessed, he’s doing the same at DAYS. I think Tyler Christopher is a fantastic addition and I’ve been in love with Louise Sorel since she played Augusta Lockeridge on Santa Barbara. Now that was the best soap in history in my opinion. Boy am I showing my age…Ha!

Jovin

Santa Barbara ruled!!!

Patrick

love the props for Ron Carlivati. I am so thrilled at the outcome and the dream like state i’m in… wowing myself when I tune IN.

ie: Louise Sorel from two of the best . Santa Barbara and Days of OUR Lives

GAVEL.

Santa Barbara is an American television soap opera that aired on NBC from July 30, 1984 to January 15, 1993
from Wiki

??? I tend not to put Santa Barbara with the much LONGER running serial. duh ? ATWT will always be my #1. but… like you and plenty other – Santa Barbara is the crème de la crème.. of stellar TALENT. the BEST CAST and heck… I’m still in love with Jed Allen… and so much love for Nicholas Coster and Louise Sorel… PLUS PLUS PLUS.

Days of OUR Lives is doing it

I’ve been waiting months for Tyler so needless to say I can’t wait to see his face on my TV again.

nancy dillingham

Unfortunately, I was not bowled over by his initial appearance/scenes.

Jovin
Jovin

Maybe he will get to tap Kayla! That would put Tyler, Mary Beth, and Stephen back into a triangle from their days at GH. I’m not sure how I feel about ANOTHER DiMera child. How many kids can Stefano have? It’s a little bit absurd when a heretofore unknown child pops up every few years. I like Tyler as an actor but he is much better as a nice guy because he is quirky and charming. Playing “bad” just doesn’t seem to come naturally to him. But of course, I will reserve comment. I don’t like the idea of Stefano being alive either. I totally look at it as a slap in the face to Joe Mascolo, who was given special episodes as closure. Joe is deceased and so should Stefano be! There is no reason a 90 year man would still be plotting murder and mayhem. Leave that to his children. I also hope it is revealed that Andre is really Tony. This lovesick puppy dog is nothing like Andre. Has anyone forgotten that Andre is a brutal serial killer?? He viciously stabbed Renee, Trista, and other women. He also staged all the killings in 2003-2004 that traumatized half the town, including Abigail’s father Jack. To see her cozying up to him on the couch saying she loves him is a bit much!!

Lisa

I disagree about him not playing bad – that is when I like him the best when he gets pissed and goes off, OMG very powerful. I am thinking he can hold his own and them some with all these guys in his family, and he will definitely attract the ladies. I don’t know this cast so not sure who is available to be his love interest, but he is Amazing in love scenes

Patrick
Patrick

Hi Jovin – I would get – soooooo – pissed @GH. when , Billy Miller “Jason” would , WIN every fight, altercation, battle, as it were. Nicholas it seems, never stood a chance.

that’s what pissed me off… and yeah,… pissed that they fired a mega watt

I daresay – Tyler Christopher MUST play tough guy well… because … NEAR every other post while he was on GH, at the latter end… when NIcholas was throwing more shade… posts were livid… where is the Prince of ole

I am so glad he is back on our telee

@Lisa – YES – tell it like it is. boffo appeal across the board

TC is a force

rebecca1

I’ve never watched this soap…might check it out now. There are FOUR

rebecca1
rebecca1

hahah…must have hit send by mistake….I was saying there are four previous Cassadines on the show now! (Was Cathrine a Cassadine? Don’t remember if she married Stefan…but she was in their orb).

Will have to catch up on the history of the show and give it a shot!

Jaime
Jaime

if he goes near kayla I am cancelling Days forever. Not amused that tyler was propped at Nichols expense on GH when Stefan cassadine was far more interesting than the duller Nikolas so if he robs Stephen of another I am so done with him and days & grossly over rated ron carlivati

Celia
Celia

Ohhhhh, Jovin…..what a great assumption!!!!!! Andre is really Tony????? I love that. And, you are right. What we see is not the stuff of which makes Andre. Imagine Anna coming back…bye, bye Kay?…albeit, Kay is one of my favorites on DOOL.
Concering Tyler? He doesn’t need to be “bad”, in the true sense of the word. He could be ‘imperious”, as his name suggests, Octavian ( Augustus).
His ‘badness’ may be distributed more subtly from his father’s. I wouldn’t count any cruelty coming from Tyler, as Stefan, out. He did a pretty good job of showing his bloodthirsty side at the end of his tenure on GH.

michele

WOW Christopher looks great what a loss for GH i wish they can work something out down the road . i have been watching GH for over 26 yrs and he is one of the reasons and his son on the show is great i miss him . i guess i will have to start watching this also .

Patrick
Patrick

yeah, inasmuch as I’m so excited for him… this new opportunity

and he’s back on all our telee

i’d readily WELCOME this man back @GH. SHOOT he ( also spent like Steve burton ) 20 plus years @GH.

I will never forget what Jean Shelley and Frank did to this show and Tyler.

after all the hoopla of the TWIN dynamics die down.. and it will spiral… once Sam reunites back with Jason… and it’s the fab four back in front. SIGH

WHAT : are Carly Sonny Jason and Sam going to do ? what we haven’t already seen and know ? what ? could these 4 possibly bring now ?

Nicholas Cassadine will forever be GH… muchmoreso than most.

Stefan O. DiMera – this adds so much intrigue.. because of TC being a DiMera.

I wish Tyler and his family all the best… respect and thank you .

Louise Sorel is the best villain in soap history. She is the only villain that comes close to Stefano. She is truly one of a kind and highly under rated. Days should be doing everything tin their power to keep her presence on the show. when Kristen goes off bring Vivian in and go back and forth between the two.

Mo
Mo

She is based in NY. I think she was okay with coming back for a short arc, but I don’t know if Louise would want to return FT.

I would love it if she did come back FT, because she has long been one of my favorites.

Who remembers her on SB cooking her daughter’s pet bird and serving it on crackers? For some reason, that has stayed with me. And of course, all of Vivian’s machinations on Days. Love her!

I don’t even watch this soap but I will now that he is coming on. His performances thru the years should have won him even more Emmys, he is that Good! Can’t wait to see his face on my tv next week!!!

Watched Tyler on GH for years and I am sure he will be terrific on DOOL. How perfect, him being Stefano’s son. He plays the dark characters so well. Loved Vivians entrance in the black cape. DOOL is in an upswing thanks to Ron C. All the actors have also been amazing. I am sure the better writing and storylines are giving them the inspiration.

I just hope this doesn’t make Billy Miller reduced to back burner. Hopefully they will work as an ensemble with Thao.

OMG! Of course. I can’t believe I said that. I must have been reading too much about the debate above about Miller versus Burton.

My apologies, Billy FLYNN!!! You know I love you. 🙂

Patrick

did you mean ? Billy Flynn : our man of the hour… he’s a lot. Chad DiMera

this occurred to me. I daresay… oy @TPTB

Leave the DiMera ensemble as it is… PLUS the one and only Tyler Christopher

the dynamic between Andre, Kate, Chad, Abs, Ben… HOT

w/ Stefan ( Tyler Christopher ) that much HOTTER

I wonder who… Stefan could be paired with ?

to this day… for the younger set “newbie” I AM IN LOVE w/Chad and Abs FOREVER

Patrick

DID you hear…. i’m so ecstatic… Anna DiMera is coming back

Leann Hunley is BACK … bigger than life… SEX’y – so sensual w/comedic timing

as all the men in Salem… get in line

Chrystie-Delancey

YES! My apologies. I follow Billy’s instagram – inlikebillyflynn. He and his wife are a riot! I love him on DAYS. I haven’t thought of Billy MILLER since he was on Y&R despite the fact that I watch GH too.

Oh, Billy FLYNN, I am so sorry.

Really???? Anna is coming back? Ironically enough, I wished for her to come back when Jovin proposed Andre being really Tony ….

Mo

I couldn’t get a handle on Stefan and Tyler’s portrayal yesterday. It was just one ep. We’ll see. Love having Vivian back. She is fabulous.

I did notice Stefan spoke in past tense about Stefano. I think that was wrong. Stefano is still alive!

Trying to figure out the time line for all this. How old is Stefan supposed to be? I guess he’s older than Chad, but younger than Andre.

Celia
Celia

I think Stefano is alive, as well…..could be that Stefan spoke of him in the past tense so that not to give the truth away; that is, Stefano being alive!!

I loooved TC on Day’s and GH. He looks good, glad they were able to cover his ugly tat.
I understand the latest fab, that young men keep their hands in their pockets. Not too DiMera style or even “Princely”. Never see TGVN with his hands in his pockets.
His entrance was strong and quite good, then he stands there like a “kid”.
Looking forward to see Stefan’s adventure thru Salem, their women etc.

Mo

Question: did he just find out about his paternity? Who named him? Who raised him? I need a little more info on the backstory. A little confused. I don’t understand Ivan stealing the Madame’s baby. What the reason for his?

KMB

Haven’t really watched but will Tyler be playing this “Stefan” who is a “Stefan Cassadine” type of character? I wonder if Stephen Nichols will give him any pointers.

As much as I do not want to see Billy FLYNN reduced to back burner because of Tyler Christopher, I do believe that Tyler was a “good get” for DAYS. He will work in nicely.

I do like Tyler but right now, I am having a tough time seeing him on screen and thinking I’m watching Nikolas. Guess it’ll take time. I went through the same thing when Josh Taylor was Chris Kositchek for years then left and came back as Roman Brady-every time I saw the actor, I kept thinking i was watching Chris.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
