The camera quality isn’t as good as the other online content… but it’s definitely an improvement of what’s airing right now. Let’s hope it is a sign of good things to [finally] come, production-wise, any way.

Apparently NBC doesn’t care anything about the elderly in nursing homes across the country who do not have tvs that can stream and have watched this soap for years but will no longer be able to access it.

Like my mother who has dementia and doesn’t know how to navigate her remote even if she did have Peacock. This is/was all she had in her life to look forward to. I can say how disgusted I am but I sure would love for my choice words to be put in print here because I have said every cuss word in the book. As a matter of fact, I think I made up some new ones.

$1.99 is nice. I will wait until September to join. I feel bad for Days’ fans who can’t afford or access Peacock.

I’m already streaming on Peacock, so, I’m not affected by this.
This video seemed forced and fake to me. Why do it at the Horton set? I mean, I know why but it’s trite. The town square would have worked better.
I do wish people would get over it though. Moving to streaming is better than an outright cancellation. For myself, I’ll watch where ever they go until the last sand falls through the hourglass.

P.S. Thank you Michael for this forum. I love being able to come here and say my opinion without fear of backlash. You Rock!

This is a slap in the face for all the loyal elderly fans that have been loyal veiwers for all these years. I feel bad for them. They are your core fans and lets be honest the younger generation that watches and stream shows dont care a flip about Days or any soap operas! You might as well go ahead and nail the coffin shut on Days of our lives. Its sad that its own network doesn’t recognize there own fan base and viewers! BAD DECISION BAD MOVE.

It’s interesting that you say the network doesn’t recognize their* own fan base and viewers. I bet they do and studied the viewing level on Peacock as part of their decision.

Let’s face it.. it was either cancelled or move to peacock. So, if you are the elderly that can’t afford it or can’t stream just pretend it was cancelled and move on… sorry I know it isn’t the best situation but the ratings have slowly declined every year it was bound to happen.

Well, I was surprised today, the 1st, turned on the TV and they are still showing Days as usual, so I don’t know WTH is going on.

Satan just informed us that the move to Peacock doesn’t start until the 12th. So sorry I mislead anyone.

The people of Salem have been my friends and family for 52 years. As I moved from state to state as a transfer person, the residents of Salem always followed me. I have seen and interacted with them 5 days per week over the past 50 plus years. I don’t see my family or closest friends that often. I don’t get many visitors so I will miss and mourn the loss of my dear daily friends. I can afford to subscribe to Peacock but I choose to stand with all the viewers who cannot afford the service, who do not… Read more »

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.

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.
