Days Of Our Lives

Is Bryan Dattilo finally on his way back to Days of our Lives?

So could this finally be the right time for fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) to return to the Salem fold?  For all intent and purposes it would seem the timing couldn’t be better, as over the next several months the Horton family be dealing with Will’s (Chandler Massey) coming out, as the character tries to come to terms with this within himself.

It would be interesting to see how the writers decide to write the character of Lucas in this scenario and his reaction to the news that his son, Will, is  gay. Would Lucas be the supportive dad, or the homophobe?

In any case, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Datillo was spotted earlier this week at the set of Days of our Lives at NBC Studios!

So let us know if you would be excited for a Lucas return? And if so, how would you like to see him deal with his son’s sexuality?

i would love to have him back and i would hope that the writers write lucas as a supportive father of his son become who he really is . I think the writers need to ask Bryan how he thinks the character should respond to his sons comming out also i would love if johnny turns out to be lucas’s

If the character of Lucas returns I hope it’s only for a short time to support his son. Or better still, just call.

I’m DYING for Lucas to come back to DAYS, and there is absolutely no better time than with this storyline. Lucas’s presence is essential right now, they can’t tell this story properly without his perspective. He would NOT be a homophobe though, never. He would be very supportive of his son and his sexuality.

If true, I would be SO happy to see him return! It’s been a long, long wait, I can’t wait for the confirmation. He is so needed in Salem.

DAYS has been so dark for the month of November especially the last couple of weeks. Hearing the news of Bryan’s possible return is like a ray of sunlight. There was never a character needed on any show more than Bryan is needed on DAYS right now. People need a reason to watch, a reason to care about the show since the writers are making it known that they really don’t care that much what the fans want or are interested in. I know I have never been so discouraged in DAYS in my life as I am right now.… Read more »

I think he’s needed for the Will storyline and that’s about it. Maybe he’ll bring a bride back from Hong Kong instead of rehashing Lucas/Sami version 348.

I would be delighted to have him back. I love Bryan, I love Lucas, and frankly Sami only seems to be tolerable with Lucas by her side, but I’m not opposed to him having a romantic storyline outside of Sami, I think it’s about time that someone other than Sami shows some true love for Lucas. I think it’ll be great if for the FIRST time Days treats this fan favorite and someone who’s been so loyal to Days with some respect and gives him the storyline that Lucas deserves. If the rumor is true that he is back or… Read more »

Lucas Horton will be a supportive dad, I would love for Lucas to have a new woman in his life, someone to help him and love him and his kids.
Im just sooooooo HAPPY he is on his way back to Salem. 🙂

I like Lucas and think it would be great to have him back to be supportive of Will. Just keep him away from Sami because she belongs with EJ.

I would love to see Lucas return!! And even better, it would be great to see him reunite with Sami. Sami and BoringRafe have zero chemistry. I’m so hoping they break up & having Lucas around would be perfect timing! I hope Lucas is supportive of Will. I can’t say I am happy about this storyline, but Lucas’ presence would make it more enjoyable.

You’re kidding, right? Days has needed Lucas back for a long while now…it makes no sense that Lucas would not have been there for Will’s graduation, etc. Bringing him back is the best thing Days could do at this particular time.

Its always been the right time for Lucas. He should have never been gone in the first place at least Lucas would have never left his children. I’m estatic that he may be back I just don’t want to be letdown. This show is notorious for that.

I quit watching when Bryan was let go (both times). Lucas is my favorite character and without him the entire storyline with Will seems empty. I saw Chandler’s scenes Friday and for the first time in YEARS actually anticipate seeing his scenes Monday. He knocked it out of the park. IMO if done right, Bryan and Chandler could really do some Emmy worthy scenes. Days reboot – while I did try to watch – was an epic fail in my opinion and bringing Lucas back for this storyline would be a HUGE step in the right direction. I’m still at… Read more »

i will be excited if he is back and it better be for long term
i also i would hope so that the writers will write lucas as a supportive father of his son become who he really is too

Bring Bryan Dattilo back pronto. Would love to see him in the storyline with Will. I’m a huge Lucas fan and would expect that Lucas would have a difficult time with Will being gay, but in the long run, Lucas’s love for his son will always out weigh the doubts he has about homosexuality. This could be a roll that Bryan could sink his teeth into, but please keep Galen/Rafe out of the story line.

I would love to have him back on the show too.. Have been fan to him for the past 18 years. and would make this fan very happy if Lucas comes home. and he should be there for Will and only Lucas should be there for him.. and not Rafe..””That is all that matters, cause Will is our son. And If anyone is gonna be here for you its gonna be me! If anyone is gonna help you through this, and hold your hand and be supportive, I’m gonna do it! Not him!”

100 reasons for Lucas and Bryan to come back _______________________________________ 100. Lucas is an uncle yet again; he needs to see his nephew Parker. 99. Kate has too much on her plate these days, with dealing with Vivian and patching up her marriage with Stefano. She needs someone who knows Hearth and Home (Salem) to step in and keep it going. That would be Lucas. 98. Salem needs a little laughter as everyone is going through some tough times. Bryan Dattilo’s Lucas can interject that as only Lucas can. 97 Jennifer is having a rough time and losing her heart… Read more »

The ratings have bottomed out it is clear the majority do not want EJ.. Bryan will bring viewers back that were ousted by the Ej sicko show..rapists and grief sex is a big NO ! Lucas would be very supportive of Will and love him no matter what. But the bigger issue is that in the past ..swept under the dirty Dimera rug it was written that Johnny and Ali were Not Dimera, the stem cells did NOT match to save Stefano. This has to be. and should be re-visted. Nothing could make the ratings soar higher than Lucas fighting… Read more »

yes, I really want Bryan Dattilo back on my screen. I have not watched since the day he left and won’t watch until he is back on my screen. Please bring back Bryan Dattilo, Lucas needs to be there for Will and Allie, both his children. He also needs to be declared the father of Johnny, oh the drama that would cause to have both the twins be Lucas’s, as it should be. Please bring back Bryan Dattilo as Lucas Horton and reunite the Horton family. Lucas, Sami, Allie and Johnny. That would make this Lucas, Bryan and Lumi fan… Read more »

It would be fantastic to have Byan back on the canvas. One of the best things about Days is that their major actors over the years come back time after time. I’d love to see Lucas get all uptight and outraged over Will’s coming out story. (Politcal correctness does NOT make for good daytime drama.)
BTY- Massey (Will) has been fantastic lately. I loved his big dramatic reaction to Gabby’s rejection and ending of their relationship. I hope they play out this story slowly and show all the complexities involved in the coming out process.

I’d be so beyond happy and filled with joy if Bryan returned as Lucas. He should have never been let go in the first place. He’s a Horton, hes very important to the history of the show. His son Will needs him during the dark stuff that he’s going through. His little girl Allie needs her daddy. and his Soul-Mate Sami needs him to make some sense of the MESS she’s once again created for herself. Lumi belong together like Bo & Hope, John & Marlena, Jack & Jennifer and Carrie & Austin belong together. They are part of the… Read more »

Would love to see Bryan return. The show has a void without him! Watched him for years and years. I miss the days when Lucas was in Salem. Don’t care if he’s not written with Sami. Actually at this point it’s probably best that he’s not. I just want Lucas back. Dattilo is a great actor.

I’d tune back in to see THIS return! I’d like to see Lucas really blown away by Will’s coming out. Hey, if he was perfectly fine with it, that’d be very unsoap like! Things are never that easy. I don’t want to see Lucas written as a jerk though, and there is a difference. Most of all, if Lucas returned I would tune right back out if they didn’t do right to the Will/Lucas relationship that they’ve been butchering (I’ve seen scenes, although I no longer watch the show regularly). Rafe is not the first “real father figure” Will has… Read more »

If BD comes back, there is really no need for GG – plain and simple. BD can take over the co parenting duties with sami (only) and maybe find himself some sweet loving via madison or even gabi (since dool is exploring the older man young girl crush via abby and austin, lucas should be able to dip into that honey bowl). No Sami or Carrie or even Nicole pairing, Lucas has been there and done that too many times it will be insulting and depressing to send the guy back for another round of pride-destroying “romance”. This time around… Read more »

Would be very glad to have Lucas/Bryan back. Seems the timing would be right to have him come now during the storyline of Will coming out. I would want him to be supportive perhaps, at first it would be an adjustment, but then he comes to realize that he loves his son and wants him to be happy. May sound strange, but also down the road would like to have EJ/Lucas team up on something in a ‘buddy’ way not mean or angry. In the past, EJ and Lucas actually had good chemistry and at times were funny together. Would… Read more »

First of all, I disagree with Vicky…I think Days is amazing right now. They are paying attention to vets, giving us old fashioned soap stories, and love centered ones. Last I knew, this is what fans wanted. I know this fan is very pleased with what he sees. As for Lucas coming back, heck yeah. This story cannot be told properly without his father, who I could totally see being more supportive than Sami. I am also interested in seeing how Will’s friends react namely Chad. I know when my friend came out. I wanted to support him, and I… Read 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.

Alison Sweeney Signs New Multi-Picture Overall Deal with Hallmark

Days of our Lives favorite, Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) has signed a multi-picture overall  deal with the Hallmark Media.

According to Deadline, as part of Sweeney’s new deal she will star and executive produce A Magical Christmas Village with also stars Luke McFarlane and Marlo Thomas.  The movie will premiere later this year during the Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas.

In story, Sweeney plays Summer, an architect living in a small town where she’s raising her young daughter Chloe. When her mother Vivian (Thomas) finds herself in need of a place to live, her orderly life becomes a little less so after inviting Vivian to move in with them during this transition. Upon arrival, Vivian sets up an heirloom, miniature Christmas village resembling their town, and tells Chloe it grants Christmas wishes. As Chloe begins setting up the figurines, real-life events seem to mimic the scenes she creates, including Summer’s chance meeting with Ryan (Macfarlane), a newcomer to their community.

In a statement on inking the pact with Hallmark Media, Sweeney shared: “I am thrilled to continue to work with Hallmark as they continue to support my work as an actress and as a producer. I’m very proud of our Christmas movie and excited for the future projects to come!”

Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Media, added:  “Alison Sweeney has been an incredible creative partner for us over the years – both on screen as well as behind the camera as a producer. She’s long been a fan favorite and we can’t wait to continue our work together as we bring new stories to life.”

Sweeney has been making story arc visits to Days of our Lives in recent years.  No word if she will be making a return to the series now that its permanently on Peacock.

So, will you be checking out Alison’s new movie when it comes out in time for holiday season? Comment below.
