I started watching from the beginning and its golden years was the late 60s to 1979…i quit watching briefly with the mass firings around 1980…watched several years…was an on and off viewer since the 1990s until a few years ago…i hope Ron C. can keep the momentum…had my doubts but he has done great improvements…i wonder what he might had done different for the shows 50th-which was too much darkness and not worth celebrating…i would had added several cameos from past cast members, clips showing past and present characters…and had several current characters like Ned and Hope play Doug and… Read more »

You and my Grandmother should exchange/compare notes, Jimmy. You tell a great story….good for you. I ‘hear’ the nostlgia in your writing, as I do my Gran’s.
Other than Another World, Days is her preferred soap.

I loved Another World…hope you showed your Gran some of those few rare vintage clips of AW that survived the wiping process from the show(a few are from the 60s to the 70s-there were some taken from a side angle but i still like seeing those rare epps in any condition)…its on kinescope but i have watched the wedding of Lenore and Walter from 1968 over a dozen times-its my all time favorite soap wedding-watching it feels like you are witnessing a real wedding-it was so well written!!!

Congrats, Days! Ron & co. have made the show fun and compelling. Really enjoying it. Now if those Nielsen numbers would come up, a renewal by NBC beyond next fall would be assured.

Remember these good times, Days fans, because Ron runs out of gas around year 3. I’m a fan of Ron and think he’s a great writer (loved what he did with GH the first 2.5 years), but it’s very apparent when he hits the wall.

Ron Carlivati went from writing OLTL almost immediately writing for General Hospital.So now that he had time off between his writing at GH to his now writing at Days he’s been refreshed in a way and he won’t run out of gas.Plus at Days he has story consultants Sheri Anderson and Ryan Quan that could keep him focused and he can rely on.

The show has been excellent lately. I would love to see Phillip come back, keep Kate front and center and looking forward to seeing the new Ciara.

Hope you don’t mind people who disagree, but days hold very little appeal for me I’ve hung on again since 2011 for some good storytelling THIS isn’t IT!!!! Characters who interest me currently are Brady, Eve, Eric, John, Andre/Tony Abe, Val, Julie, Victor, Eli , Chloe, Susan, Steve, Kayla, Jennifer, Tripp, Loni, Ben. Lucas Honestly no longer care what is happening with Marlena Evans family, Kate, Sonny, Paul, Adrienne, Justin, Hope Brady Which probably means without a significant changes my time of watching days is about over, after watching for DAYS for most of my life. IMHO nothing that has… Read more »

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
