Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”

Share your well-wishes to Galen on his birthday and also for a job well-done as DAYS Rafe via the comment section below. But first see his post with longtime co-stars, Kristian Alfonso (Hope) and Alison Sweeney (Sami). 

That is followed by a video clip of Galen’s appearance on the Cliff Dorman Podcast where he first announced his exit from DAYS.

What is going on over there maybe you just might want to fold the doors and call it a wrap end on a high note

Right, Kay.
How sad!! Love “Rafe”—also heard Smith and Massey are leaving. WOW!! Too bad—love those guys, too…so much!

Well, Celia, just as I considered adding DAYS to my schedule, they go and fire two of my faves (Chandler and Freddie) and Casey M. is leaving on his own. Why bother now? GH is also slowly imploding except for Ava & Nikolas, Nelle’s return, and Lucas looking REALLY HOT for someone just out of a coma. Not a great era for soaps right now.

For better and sometimes for worse there have been many cast changes on soaps….i still recall the mass firings on Days in 1980 that was very upsetting to me and many fans,,,but in the last few years Days has had a revolving door with some stars returning for short story arcs..my problem is far fetched stories like Patch/Stefano…masks, supernatural and sci fi stories on this classic soap that used to be so much better than that…and if your going to have Stefano back instead of passing as Patch it at least would had made more sense had he showed up… Read more »

You may be right, Jimh. I remember when DYNASTY lost all credibility when Fallon was abducted by aliens! Whereas KNOTS LANDING stuck with character-based stories and lasted longer and better.

The mass firings on Days in 1980 was before my time. Who were the actors let go at that time?

Jimh
Guest

Those who let go where the actors who played the Andersons such as Bob, Phylis and Linda..Cathy who was suppose to be Marie Hortons daughter and several others-some quit like actor Ed Mallory who played Bill Horton…

Hmmmm—1980–wasn’t born yet, LOL….but, my grandmother, who has been watching since day one, Jimmy, said that DOOL has never gone this crazy….Maybe once with Marlena and the Devil, LOL….but repetition doesn’t always hit the spot. I agree, the PTB are all over the place—-there probably is a beginning and an end to their mind-spinning tales, but, many of us don’t have the patience to follow vicious circles. I am not a fan of the Stefan/Patch storyline either. This Ben thing, is becoming soooo stale, as well—among others–Jordan ‘s mysterious murderer should come to light ( was it David’s sitter/Sonny’s new… Read more »

It’s been great Galen, thank you and best of luck. On a serious, note you are probably getting out at the right time with the management/writing/producing team on this show!! It will be lucky to survive beyond the year it was just renewed for.

I am going to miss Rafe. Could this be just the beginnings of letting actors on DOOL go. Did NBC order the producers of this show to cut costs?

ALeta

So sad to see Rafe go!!! It won’t be the same. I certainly hope he’s not being recast with another man, no actor can fill his shoes! Something good better be happening with Ben and Ciara and Zander to keep people watching.

I will sure miss him, but they really haven’t had a SL for him in a long time. Even as Hope’s husband and employee, Hope acted like she was doing him a favor.
I think he can do much better than what he’s been given lately. Good luck to him. He will be a good addition to any show.

So sad that the character of Rafe will no longer be on Days. Galen is a great actor. Hope it was his decision to leave. If not, then the decision makers at Days need to rethink this bad decision.

‘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.

DAYS Alum Mark Hapka to Play Johnny Depp in Tubi Film on Heard/Depp Trial

That didn’t take long! A TV movie based on the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation case is set to have its premiere on September 30th on Tubi.

Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial will follow the tumultuous relationship in court and out of Depp and his ex-wife in a dramatization of the two-month long defamation trial that captivated the public.

Taking on the role of motion-picture star Johnny Depp will be none other than former Days of our Lives cast member, Mark Hapka (Ex-Nathan Horton). Hapka played Nathan from 2007-2011 on the daytime drama series.

Megan Davis will star opposite Hapka in the role of Aquaman star, Amber Heard.

In a statement, Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer for Tubi, shared:  “Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial has ‘Hot Take’ in the title for a reason.  With our partners at MarVista, this Tubi Original was fast-tracked into production to capture a timely take on a story that became part of the cultural zeitgeist, painting a unique picture of what millions watched play out in the headlines over the summer.”

So, what are your thoughts of the casting of Hapka as Depp, and do you think it’s too soon for a movie based on a trial that just wrapped a few months ago in June to be released? Comment below.
