Good morning to all of our colleagues at Days of our Lives!  It is a very special day for the longest running scripted series in NBC Television history who turns 48 years young today! And that, my friends, is quite the accomplishment!

We want to first say a big congratulations for all the hard working men and women in front of the camera and behind the scenes who have kept this darling of  soapland cranking out episodes day after day, and week after week!

In a climate where so many daytime dramas have gone to soap heaven, DAYS has been a true survivor! And this year also saw DAYS win the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, the only second time in its storied history!

And right in time for their anniversary, the Friday air show looks to be quite the doozy, now that Marlena (Deidre Hall) hit the play button and the sex romp/rape of Kristen (Eileen Davidson) to Father Eric (Greg Vaughan) is being shown at Kristen’s wedding to Brady (Eric Martsolf)!  Good timing!

The cast and crew of DAYS have something fun planned to celebrate today and that includes you, its loyal and passionate fans!  Starting at 10AMPST and going to 3PMPST, the stars will be live tweeting from the set and answering some of your questions!  Use #askdays48 and go to the @DaysofourLives to participate and also check out @NBCDays!  We are told that the actors will be tweeting out pictures, details and videos from the big event!

Alison Sweeney (Sami) kicked off the online celebration this morning when she tweeted, “Good morning! TGIF! Happy 48th anniversary to @nbcdays !!!! So proud to be a part of such a fantastic show & family. #Days #AskDays

S0 DAYS fans, leave you special congratulatory message for the citizens of Salem here!  Let’s show them some love and appreciation today!

I hope if it makes it to its 50th, Days pulls a GH and brings back many blasts from its past for a visit and short story arcs…except for school, and a brief stop watching in 1980 after that horrible mass firing of so many favorites, ive watched Days since the begining…48 years!!! CONGRATULATIONS Days Of Our Lives!!!

Now wouldve been a good time to bring back Frankie Brady…i said recently the actor they hired to play this Liam shouldve been Frankie who was Jens old boyfriend…with Jen and Danial on the splits, Jen and Frankie rekindle their old romance just as J.J. begins to like Danial for saving his sorry ass and now approves of Danials relationship with his mother…meanwhile, after several months of dating, Jen and Frankie realize they were never meant to be and part as good friends!!!

Loved Frankie Brady (and Billy Warlock). Loved Frankie and Jen together. I can’t stand Dannifer! Maybe Jen would be likeable again without Daniel. Hard to say. I used to be a Jen fan, but not anymore.

At 48 and still great, make room for DAYS on your plate! Don’t be a dummy, Days is really yummy! No time to ignore, DAYS is not a bore! Don’t mess with bee hives when things are sweet at Days of our Lives!!!

More viewers are needed to calm my fears for this beauty of 48 years.

Please help.

Congrats DAYS! Forever grateful you were there for me when I lost my friends in Oakdale and Llanview and Pine Valley. Your reboot, the EJ/Sami chemistry, the Kristen DiMera fun, and the Will/Sonny storylines have given me a comfortable warm daytime home.

Congrats Days! I watch Days Of Our Lives twice a day. The present day show on cable TV and in the afternoons we are behind about 18 years on the local TV here in Barbados. Local TV has Belle just saved from the poison that Kristen meant for Marlena. Also Dr. Mike Horton running for Chief of staff. Old!! -But I still enjoy watching it!

Congrats Days! WOW I am so happy that Days is still on the air! I was hooked since I was a young girl, my mom was one of your biggest fans 🙂 I remember during the summer she had me record (yes on an old tape recorder) the full episode and yes you could hear me giggling in the back round.. I named my eldest daughter after the character Melissa! I remember she was a dancer and always loved her.. I have a 12 year old who is now hooked! please keep Days on the air! as I would not… Read more »

Looks like the person hidden behind Jen Lilley is Chandler Massey.. Why would they hide te EMMY WINNER in a group picture?!… How quickly WERE they prepared to get rid of him, wow!

I don’t think Chandler Messy is in the picture because he was to busy running his mouth to reporters, making it all about him!

Still as classy as ever 4everDAYS..

You just keep being in denial, if it’s comfy enogh for you.

I’m not in denial. CM announced he was leaving way before he should have. DAYS tapes four months ahead of what we see. His announcement was in June. His departure WAS slated for January, I believe. That exit date would result in us seeing him into May. A public notice in June through a last airdate in May is eleven months of negativity for DAYS. The focus should be positive for DAYS, not about publicity of an impending departure of a performer, especially for eleven months. I’m sure Chandler’s reps wanted him to make the announcement to garner a lot… Read more »

Ok you are not in denial. You are delusional, sorry. I mean com’on! This was not CM manipulating anything/anyone. He was screwed over by TPTB and his team. Look at the press interview. Some journalist asks him about his plans after his contract ends, he answers and you translate this with he announced his departure? He didn’t, because mid-August (10 days before he got fired) he and his co-star were still discussing whether CM should stay or not. If you think he shouldn’t have announced his plans after December, then you know maybe he wouldn’t have if that reporter hadn’t… Read more »

May Chandler Massey have a happy and full life.

I suggest he find new reps.

The same reps that handle CS indicates bad management to me.

Victoria Konefal Returns to Days of our Lives

Cin fans will be happy to know the other half of the DAYS super couple will be back on-screen later this month as Ben (Rob Scott Weston) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) love story is set to continue.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

When the missing in action Ciara returns she will bring with her a new character named Rhodes played by Jason Downs.

No word on how long Konefal’s stay will be this time, since she has been off-contract with the show since last year.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.

DAYS Mike Manning On Role in Film ‘Son of the South’: “I Hope it Strengthens the Dialogue Our Country is Currently Having About the Fight for Equality on All Fronts”

Days of our Lives Mike Manning (Charlie) has been one busy actor; not only appearing on the NBC daytime drama series and in the digital drama series, The Bay, but also in the new film Son of the South.

The film will be released on February 5th and was executive produced by Oscar-winning director, Spike Lee.  In story, Son of the South is about the grandson of a Klansman who comes of age in the deep south and eventually joins the Civil Rights Movement. The film is based on Bob Zellner’s autobiography “The Wrong Side of Murder Creek.”

Manning plays the role of Townsend Ellis, and the actor took to his Twitter account on Monday, during Martin Luther King Day, to let his fans know to be on the lookout for the film and why it is such an important piece for our time.   

Mike expressed: ” I think #MLKDay  is a good day to tell you “Son of The South” will be out Feb. 5th. I hope it strengthens the dialogue our country is currently having about the fight for equality on all fronts. Exec produced by Oscar-winner Spike Lee. Proud of this one.@son_movie”
