As the holiday weekend is upon us, most of the daytime network soaps will be airing repeats this coming Memorial Day 2012 on Monday, May 28th.  Days of our Lives will be the only soap to air a brand new episode.

As for the repeats, here is what episodes are set to play on Monday!  Over at General Hospital an episode from April 18, 2012 will be seen where Jason finds out the news that he killed his own brother Franco, Connie takes over from Kate and Olivia asks Sonny for help.

Over at The Young and the Restless, CBS will air the July 4th 2011 episode where Sharon looks back on her life as she writes a letter to Sam  after they make love while in New Mexico, while Adam and Nick think of her back in Genoa City.

On The Bold and the Beautiful look for a repeat of the January 3 2012 episode wherLiam pursues Thomas and Hope while in Cabo, Brooke and Ridge discuss Liam’s marriage, and Katie confronts Bill.

So do any of these episodes strike your fancy to check them out again? Or will you be having a Memorial Day barbeque and taking a break from the soaps for a day? Let us know!

Only watch GH, and no I don’t want to see that one again. I’d rather see a classic GH…maybe some old Anna & Luke or Heather scenes so all the newbies can see what they were like in the past. Maybe even a “best of Heather” type of thing, lol. Won’t be tuning in for this episode repeat, even if I am home.

Since I only watch Days, and it’s airing an original, I’m all set. Not looking forward to the pre-emptions that’ll happen this summer, due to Wimbledon and the Olympics though. Thank goodness for YouTube, so I can get my Salem fix!

Stephanie, This is my first summer watching days, Are you saying they will take the soap off and put the olympics and wimbeldon on in the afternoon, Are you kidding? How long does it last? Today I went nuts because on direct tv all of our local channels were down so I missed General hospital, It was driving me nuts, The networks still aren’t on, Good thing I still have soap net will watch it later. But don’t those sports things last for a whole week?How many weeks do you not see days?

I heard that Days won’t air on the 7th or 8th of June for Wimbledon (don’t remember which date), and I think it’s off for 2 weeks while the Olympics are on.

You still get Soapnet? They took it off here at least a month ago! I wouldn’t get too fond of Days because I read Matt Lauer wants a talk show & they will give him that timeslot!

I’m not a Days fan. And the choices for the pre-emption episodes do nothing for me. So I will be doing something else that day. As many have said, I would much rather see a classic episode than the crap that’s airing nowadays.

I love GH, but won’t be watching. I would rather see an older episode, not one I just saw a month ago. I don’t want to watch Sam tell Jason again that Franco is his brother, and I don’t want to see Olivia ask Sonny for help to protect Steve from Johnny. I’ll find something else to watch…You would think that GH would want to keep the momentum going in their increase in viewers by showing a really exciting old episode. Or, like one poster suggested, showing old episodes of Anna or Heather to show newer viewers a bit of… Read more »

if tptb & tiic have to show reruns why not something from the past showing families celebrating the holiday??

I agree with a lot of the GH fans that have posted here. I would much rather see a genuine classic episode from the past instead of one from a few weeks ago. And, yes, that would be helpful to newer viewers as far as seeing the history of some of the characters!

I would have preferred that they air an episode from the 1980s instead.

In the 90’s when CBS started to repeat eps of YR, BB, ATWT and GL on Xmas and New Years, they went way back (10 or 20 yrs) and that would get me to stay home, watch or tape. Something so fresh or bad, will not gain any viewers.

I’m glad Days will be putting on a new episode on Memorial Day. At least that is one show to look forward to! I’m going to skip the other soaps, because the reruns don’t interest me.

gees… of all the shows GH could have had a repeat of, how boring! Come on – they’ve got nearly 50 years of shows to pick, and they pick that one? they should have picked one further back that was a lot more exciting! could have been the puerto brenda/sonny/luke on the run one, or any one’s wedding from way back, or Frisco & Felicia’s honeymoon that Monica help set up in Sean’s apartment, or how about the running around Mount Rushmore…. Gees, they could have had a deal where we all vote for the show we want repeated, and… Read more »

They should show special episodes from the past. Or maybe that’s a reminder for them how much better soaps were back then with budget, sets, extras, wardrobe, etc.

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Beloved Kevin Dobson Dead at 77

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

However, The Hollywood Reporter had more clarity and reported that Dobson died Sunday evening in a hospital in Stockton, California, after struggling with an autoimmune deficiency. Arthur Toretzk, Dobson’s rep, shared that with the entertainment news outlet.

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
