Since Days of our Lives tapes four months in advance fans have been waiting for Intel on when two-time Daytime Emmy winner Chandler Massey will last be seen as Will Horton and when the new Will, Guy Wilson will step into the role on-screen, even though backstage he has been playing the role for the last few months!

On-Air On-Soaps heard the news last week that Chandler’s last air date is January 2nd, while Guy Wilson debuts on the January 8th episode of the long running NBC soap opera!

What viewers can anticipate when Guy Wilson premieres is that there is some very exciting story ahead for Will.  And of course, everyone is waiting to see if Guy has palpable on-screen chemistry with Freddie Smith who plays Sonny, Will’s boyfriend!

So, are you ready to say farewell Chandler and welcome Guy to the role of Will?  Let us know!

I was wondering when this would happen. Thx!

my first thought… ie: current storyline….

that the ‘big” surprise party… Will thinks Kate, Sammi, and Gabi… “are” planning… this will be the big surprise reveal…. tada! it’s the nuWill.

Not looking forward to this. Looks like the end of Will/Sonny for me, especially if they’re doing a wedding without Chandler

I will miss Chandler Massey at his best, but his best was several months back. He created a messy situation and lost his spark. Chandler’s constant grin bothered me, but in the end even that will be missed until Guy makes the role his own. Guy should have no problem when compared to the uneven performances by CM these last few months. Chandler lost interest and Guy should be excited about HIS new role.

Good luck Chandler!

I will really miss Chandler. But I am willing to give Guy the best chance to settle into the role before I make my judgments on his part as Will. I know he has the acting chops, though.

Because Chandler Massey was so popular – I wonder if DAYS didn’t encourage / direct o some lackluster performances. Massey always gave it his all in the past. While they finished filming for him in August. They are still airing him until end of year. Guy Wilson would have been a wildcard. He will be there for Feb sweeps. Good risk management for Days. if Guy Wilson catches fire if not – they have delivered the wedding – even if they move on from Wilson as front burner. Guessing Massey’ s salary went to hire Daniel Cosgrove as new character… Read more »

I like CM, but agree that there were times when he was smiling in scenes and did not understand.

I think the character of Will should be written out to depart when Camilla Banus leaves. I think Days lost an opportunity when the character of Will was written ti be gay. Will and Gabi should have remained a heterosexual couple and become that generation’s “Tom and Alice Horton”. They could have used a different chracter as a gay person and not Will Horton.

So as far as I am concerned, Will can leave town with Gabi and the baby.

Nathan should come back. He looks like a suitable heir to be the next generation’s Tom, with Melanie as his “Alice”.

I know I’m in the minority here but I’m looking forward to the recasting. Since Chandler announced he was quitting the show; a smirk has become the main trademark of the character and frankly I’m tired of looking at it. I wish him the best in future endeavors and welcome the new actor to the role.

DAYS Billy Flynn, Greg Rikaart & Mary Beth Evans Talk On: Abigail’s Murderer Revealed, Orpheus’ Poisonous Plot & the Move to Peacock

September had been a pivotal month for Days of our Lives.  After nearly 57-years on broadcast television, the long-running soap opera shifted from NBC to exclusively streaming on Peacock.  While fans have been adjusting and wrapping their heads around the change, the stories of the characters you love to love, or love to hate, are continuing to play out in Salem.

This week, after months of a whodunit and who is to blame for the death of Chad’s wife, Abigail DiMera, DAYS fans finally learned that the actual killer was none other than Clyde Weston (James Read).  Meanwhile, Kayla has taken ill along with Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate (Lauren Koslow), all a part of Orpheus’ (George DelHoyo) longstanding feud with the women and the men in their lives.

Now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, DAYS stars: Billy Flynn (Chad), Greg Rikaart (Leo) and Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) discuss their latest storylines, plus their thoughts on the soaps move on Peacock and its future.

As viewers witnessed on recent episodes, Chad figured out that it was Clyde who murdered Abigail, and went after him with a gun. Chad decided he wanted to hear the entire sordid story of how Clyde killed her.  This led to the showdown scenes at Abigail’s gravesite which included a visit by EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), who saved his brother from Clyde. During this interview, Billy weighs-in on taping the climatic scenes, what it was like to blame multiple characters for months for Abigail’s death, plus what the future holds in store for Chad as he moves on with his life post-Chabby.

Greg Rikaart shares his thoughts on if he ever thought Leo would turn out to be Abigail’s murderer since Leo had a revenge plot against those who wronged him. Rikaart also weighs-in on the story where Leo had a relationship with Craig Wesley, his enduring on-screen relationship with Emily O’Brien (Gwen, ex-Jana, Y&R) , plus working with Billy in the limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem, where Chad goes in drag as “Belinda Chinashop” and more.

Mary Beth talks on Kayla’s latest plight; that  being kidnapped by Orpheus along with Marlena and Kate, the good doctor has become very sick while trying to maintain order at University Hospital.  Evans also shares her thoughts on the arrival of Abigail Klein as her on-screen daughter Stephanie, the departure of Marci Miller as Abigail, and more.

Check out our full interview with Billy, Greg and Mary Beth below, and make sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Michael Fairman Channel for more celebrity interviews, music videos, game shows and special event coverage.

Now let us know, what did you think of Clyde being revealed as Abigail’s true killer? What did you think of the confrontation scenes between Billy Flynn and James Read? What has been your favorite Leo moment since Greg came to DAYS?  Will Kayla figure out what Orpheus has done to her and others?

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.
