It speaks volumes that when there are only four soaps left, two of them don’t make the cut for a nomination. B&B, in particular, recycles tired stories and tries to pass off exotic locations as a storyline. I’m glad WGA didn’t reward them with a nomination. Brad Bell may be good at giving his audience pretty people in pretty settings, but he can’t write a decent story to save his life. Y&R was a mess all year and just fired its HW. What’s B&B’s excuse?

Agreed and agreed. When was the last time that B&B actually told an original story? I’m three weeks behind & don’t feel any rush to try to catch up. Sad when there are now so few choices to watch.

Good to cite GH and DAYS. They are the best among the four soaps remaining. GH may not always be my cup of tea, but darn! Those writers can tell tall tales and keep that supersoap cast in motion, spinning like plates. And with a nod to history. I just wish we would not rely so on resurrections and baby-stealing. DAYS remains old-fashioned in its storytelling but oh, the suspense and buildup and dialogue those characters say (especially in the heat of the moment!). There remains a strong sense of humanity is Salem this latecomer to the proceedings has come… Read more »

@ Iakovos way to go on the marquee for both shows it could be any day of the week. when one against the other just fulfills and takes first these two above and beyond take over the CBS shows I have to pull from your DAYS cull : “… DAYS remains old-fashioned in its storytelling ” I don’t know that the numbers 3 and 4 respectively will ever overtake… CBS #1 and #2… but that’s because of mindset … days and GH have never lost their or wavered less than the audience take they’ve both maintained their draw… and it’s… Read more »

And I think the Writers Guild has more cred than the Emmy nominators. That is why I am so pleased with how this is going. Thanks for the comments, Patrick. Maybe GH and DAYS will rise up, huh? I am doing my best to make that happen. Will admit I follow the other two and watch them some. Y&R was once my favorite. I miss ATWT the most.

Since They Were Shunned At The 2014 Daytime Emmy Award WHICH WAS A TRAIN WRECK…. Because They Didn’t Give General Hospital And Equal Fair Chance To Win Anything

It Was All About Jill Farren SOAP OPERA KILLER Phelps

I Am GLAD That The Young And The Restless WAS NOT NOMINATED

That Show (Y and R) And Jill Farren Phelps Don’t Deserve Another Damn Award.

I love General Hospital, primarily due to most of the brilliant cast members, but I feel the show is all over the place, too many characters, subplots. Days has more structure, and surprisingly I care about the characters more on Days. My vote is for DAYS!

I guess congrats to both. I don’t watch GH but hear good things about it. I hate to rain on the parade, but as a long-time DOOL fan, I thought I had to comment. DAYS right now is awful! I have no idea how they were nominated for the award!! Their current storylines are a mess and really boring. The vets are underutilized while dull newbies keep coming onto the canvas. Jordan & Rafe’s relationship was super boring; no doubt she’s better with Chad. But the thing is, we’ve been waiting for her secret to come out for over a… Read more »

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.
