Why is ABC’s Couric promoting an NBC soap???

I thought that odd too.

Yeah, that’s super weird.

My first thought as well. ABC NEVER cross promotes other networks’ shows. Ever watch The View? If a star from another network comes on, they always say to “check your local listings”, rather than heaven forbid name the network their show airs on.

But hey, they chose the right show to promote- another daytime serial! And it just so happens to be my personal fave. So I won’t complain!

Katie did a HUGE GH show last year. While Katie is syndicated by an ABC subsidiary, it is not an ABC show.

Jules

Oh I know about the GH special. But that is another ABC daytime show, so that made sense. But DAYS? I don’t know 100% how it works but it was my impression her talk show is produced by ABC and aired on ABC affiliates all over the country. Her show is considered part of the ABC daytime line up, replacing All My Children, after all. So to promote, let alone mention a NBC soap is quite strange for me given The Mickey Mouse Station’s love of self-promotion.

Hey 4everDAYS you should apply– you definitely one of the show’s biggest fans on this site. You and Patrick. I am not the show’s biggest fan, but I know if I had a chance to be in a scene– I would want it be with Fr. Eric. Just have me bump into him in the Horton Square and he has to help me up– i be in heaven– no lines, just to be that close up to someone that pretty in black, will be enough for this gal.

LOL. thank you MarySF.

Thank you for your input, but I would fear losing the fantasy of my soap world by visiting the studio. Seeing outdoor sets inside and rooms with 3 walls only along with lights and cameras as well as scripts in hands and directors directing would just hurt the fantasy. In my honest opinion, I think a fan of DAYS since the beginning of DAYS should and would be more deserving. I do see myself as a superfan, but have only watched for nearly 30 years. I missed the first 18 years and wish I could see all of them! If… Read more »

The early Days years were amazing…they story lines were family related with a ton of drama…Julie was quite the Nicole of the 60’s…welll maybe not quite that bad…lol but she did have a rebellious side to her …and Doug and Julie IMHO were the first Days supercouple!! What an amazing show…and the memories I have…they truly feel like a pseudo-family! Would give anything to win this contest! Good Luck to all who have entered!!

Ive watched days since the 1960s…i consider 1968 to 1978 Days best…back then it was all about the Hortons, Andersons, Peters and The Grants…the Grants was, i believe, daytimes first complete african american family, with mother Helen, father Paul, grown son Danny, and grown daughter Valerie who was in love with Julies grown son David. IMO…i consider Doug and Julie daytimes no.1 romantic supercouple! Some clips are available on utube including a rare shot of the Hortons dining room during Thanksgiving! And from 1976 scenes with the Grant family…Tina Andrews is wonderful as Valerie…if you havent seen these check them… Read more »

I never had a problem with the David and Valerie storyline myself…i liked the Grant family…also another story some fans didnt like was when Sharon Duval told Julie Williams she was in love with her…Sharons husband Karl also was in love with Julie…i had no problem with this story as well…Julie and her rival Susan were kinda like Nicole is today but Linda Anderson was more like a mix of Nicole and Kristen but imo not as wicked as Kristen…i hated it when she and so many others were part of a mass firing in 1980. The late Margaret Mason… Read more »

When I became a fan of DAYS in 1984, my research of
DAYS history revealed a startling fact about the SL of
David Banning and Valerie Grant; it ended after a negative
response from viewers once David and Valerie kissed
at a wedding of Doug and Julie. I hope viewers would be
more accepting nowaDAYS! I’m all for diversity. It would
be nice for DAYS to strengthen the weaknesses they have
regarding the different races.

LOL…Sister Mary…that would be cool!!! Just walk on that set would make me awestruck…great memory jimh..I have watched many of the late 60’s early 70’s clips on YouTube….and if my memory is correct Days had the biracial couple and were the first to enter that genre…I believe it was Valerie Grant and David Banning…Doug and Julie…WOW..I could go on forener…when Doug’s Place was THE place to go and he would sing The Look of Love to her…OMg…then when he started singing Always…like at Tom & Alice’s anniversary, wel it took my breath way…I loved the triangle of Julie/Bob Anderson/ and… Read more »

I love this! I wouldn’t dream of entering because I watch Days only ever so often, but I love that a soap is being promoted like this. I loved the huge General Hospital show Katie did last season and I would love to see this kind of exposure for soaps, of any network, continue.

In 1986 Gloria Loring (ex Liz Chandler Curtis) was doing a benefit in Cincinnati for JDF and I inquired about tickets and it was $150 a plate…which I could not afford…so I offered to volunteer to work the event and the coordinator took my name and number and said she would call me back if she could find something for me…well did she find something…she asked me if I would like to be Ms. Loring’s dresser and assist her with gown changes during her performance!! i said WHAT?

I wonder if you could find Days biggest fan in Utah? You’d have to give them bonus points for staying up late if he/she can’t afford a DVR because Mormon owned KSL (Utah’s NBC affiliate) has just reared its ugly sensorship head again by pushing Days of our Lives to late-late-night because of their ongoing gay storyline. The affiliate has refused to officially confirm why the show was bumped, but in e-mail exchanges with frustrated fans the network has claimed that the storyline has been “offending” viewers. These games that KSL plays with “controversial” programming is what’s truly “offensive”. Maybe… Read more »

Are they the same people who have multiple wives? They
should be most understanding. Where are all the women
for the single men? I believe people are born gay, but some
people could turn gay if the opposite sex is not available.
If there is 100 men and 100 women and 25 of those men have
4 wives each, what do the 75 remaining men do? They must
think DAYS is giving those single men ideas! BTW, Days of our Lives
title was lifted from a bible psalm.

Great point 4everDays! As far as the bible psalm they don’t care anything about that. Their own “bible”, The Book of Mormon takes presidence over anything found in the bible the rest of us refer to. Also, just the mormons that practice the original mormon doctrine (which are now referred to as FLDS) practice polygamy. The “main-stream” mormons no longer endorse that idea until the afterlife where they believe men will again be able to take multiple wives. But your accurate in stating that they don’t want their members exposed to homosexuality because it may give people ideas since they… Read more »

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
