Good news today from fan favorite Greg Vaughan of Days of our Lives!  For those worried that perhaps Eric Brady might be part of the Salem serial murder killing spree, rest assured.  That’s apparently not happening.

Vaughan tweeted that he has re-signed with the NBC soap opera for more time in Salem, plus Greg related he also will be featured in a new movie from the Hallmark Channel.

In his tweet, Greg excitedly shared to his fans: “Great day today! Official contract extension @DaysofourLives & new movie @hallmarkchannel Truly Blessed!”

Does this mean that Ericole will finally have their chance at love and it will stick this time?  Viewers next week will see the end of the line for Vaughan’s other DAYS love interest, Melissa Archer (Serena) when she meets her maker, and from what has been previewed it looks like it might be Eric who stumbles upon her lifeless body.

So, happy to hear Greg will be sticking around Salem?  Hoping that Eric and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) will build a future together? Comment below!

I happy Greg will be sticking around, but upset to hear/read it! DAYS’ performers should be under a gag order. They shouldn’t discuss contract renewals, which would add suspense to the serial murder storyline. Put a lid on it, DAYS!!!!!

I was hoping Erik would return to the priesthood and turn out to be the killer…each victim would have been murdered by strangulation and found wth a rosary around their neck and one of the Ten Commandments pinned to their clothing…and yet the Salem police cant figure out whodunnit…oops, sorry, ive watched to much GH and their dumb cops…lol

We don’t know for how long the contract extension was for. Eric may have split personality we don’t know about yet. GG commented that he knows who the killer is and its someone you would never suspect. The killer is suppose to be aroundbinto 2016.

I’m sure he didn’t post without at least tacit approval from his bosses at Days. There may be some reason they want people to know his character in particular is sticking around. Or, it is a soap: it may be a ruse. New contract…. but they will bump off Eric in 13 weeks. You never know!

Or the character is bumped off and the extension is needed for some appearance beyond the grave– or they did kill him off but changed their mind and want to bring him back from the dead like they did during the infamous killing spree a few years back when pretty much everyone in town was murdered only to be found alive months later on Stefano’s island.

I’m so happy to find out that Greg has been extended. He’s a good actor, and the material the previous writing team gave him was so subpar. I hope this means great things for Eric.

Love Greg Vaughan. Happy he is sticking around. Eric needs a boost though.

DOOL was great today… love, suspense, mystery… keep up the great work.

Off topic: I’m really going to miss Daniel Cosgrove. Bad move losing Aiden Jennings.

I always said Hope shouldve been paired with Rafe and now they seem to be going there…wouldve prefered Aiden with Jen!!!

They need to pair Jen with someone interesting (i.e. not Daniel). Holding out hope for a Jack return for the 50th.

though, Kayla always seemed to have her eyes on Aidan pre-Hope & Aidan. I loved watching that radiant look in Mary Beth’s eyes! She wanted him so bad! 😛

ALLright : I am giving Greg Vaughan a reprieve

a let … that his character … per Deidre Hall…. when she and we found out that he was cast to play her son….. ” he’s too beautiful”

oh! notwithstanding… the writing…. no ones good enough for him… has Kristen put her stamp on his libido? is he caught in the middle of his virtue and wanton ideal

is the retread of Nicole still rendering or piquing ?

darned tootin ! Greg Vaughan is today’ current William Holden !

he just needs a story

Brady just needs a story… stop being so entitled… how dare he grandstand and lord over Jeanne Theresa !

if Daniel is so deserving an act… PUT HIM BACKBURNER.. now that real troops are back ON

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

Totally agree. Jeanne Theresa can do so much better than bully Brady. Daniel needs to be back burnered. They need to perk up the writing for Eric. He is ‘too beautiful’.

I like Greg. But the character of Eric needs a complete overhaul. He’s a horrible character in his current incarnation — always whining, always yelling, enough!

Mo

He’s BORING!!!!!!!

I am glad I am not the ONLY one who thinks that his character of Eric is about as exciting as unbuttered toast.
I do not have anything against the actor, I am happy to hear that he will remain on the show, but they need to spice up his lines, or something – his character is very whiney and childish and overall, bland to watch. Aside from that I guess I love him LoL.

Mo

I just find him so blah.

I was hoping he wouldnt resign and sign with GH as Lucky. The character needs to be on the show and he was damn good. JJ gets the upper hand because of his chemistry with TG. But Greg was really good on GH.

GREG VAUGHAN IS MY FAVORITE…I think he is a great actor, a professional who puts himself into the script and reacts naturally..Days is lucky to have him..GH lost a fine Lucky when he left. I LOVED FATHER ERIC.. but Greg needs Nicole…#ERICOLE.. looking forward to a new..improved storyline for @greg_vaughan..

Will Jackée Harry Find Herself In Salem and Days of our Lives?

From out-of-a-tweet from Grammy night come a part for TV and film star, Jackée Harry on Days of our Lives?

As CBS aired the Recording Academy’s annual kudofest, Harry sent out a tweet with a side-by-side image of Grammy icon, Bonnie Raitt, next to DAYS’ Suzanne Rogers (Maggie).

Harry, who is known for her humor and wit in her tweets, expressed: “Has Bonnie Raitt been moonlighting as Maggie from Days of 0ur Lives for the past 20 years?

Jackée, who started her TV career on Another World as Lily Mason, and eventually played Sandra Clark on the sitcom 227, and various other signature roles, next received a tweet in response to hers from DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati.

The head scribe expressed: “No, Bonnie is obviously Maggie’s evil twin. The real question is, when is Sandra Clark going to come visit Salem?

Next, an excited Harry sent back: “Ha!!!! I would LOVE to play with the DOOL cast, Ron.”

On Monday, Carlivati tweeted a GIF of a game show moment with Jackee Family Feud style, that says “Name something you must have in order to live” The answer he tweeted: “A part on Days of our Lives?, Jackée Harry”

See the exchange below:

So, would you like to see Jackée in Salem? If so, what do you think would be a fun part for her to play? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

Photo: JPI

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

Courtesy/NBC

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.
