Molly Burnett is in the news this weekend! First, it appears that Burnett is set to return again as Melanie Jonas on Days of our Lives this January.

According to a report from Jason47.com, “Burnett’s length of stay is not yet announced. Will she be around for an extended stay, or to just help wrap up the Daniel storyline?”

As DAYS fans know, it has been bantered about that Shawn Christian (Daniel) is exiting the series shortly, and since Melanie plays his on-screen daughter it makes sense she may be back for his swan song.

In addition, Molly is also appearing on tonight’s (Dec 20) episode of CSI: Cyber reprising her role of Nina Moore!  In the episode which airs on CBS (9PMET/PT)  they tease: After an innocent bystander is killed when dozens of ATMs suddenly spew money into the street, the Cyber team investigates the bank heist that is orchestrated by a real-life cyber Robin Hood.

So, glad to hear Molly is coming back to DAYS?  Will it be a short visit, or a longer one?  Share your thoughts below!

Melanie returns to attend Dr. Dans funeral after he is killed by a drunk driving Erik…when Erik is only given probation, a vengeful Melanie goes beserk and attempts to shoot Erik but by mistake accidentally shoots her grandma Maggie who is temporarily paralyzed…Melanie has a breakdown and is sent to a sanitarium and a remorseful Erik leaves town and reenters the priesthood!!!…just kidding!!!!!

you are a marvel ; love your plot points

this would be excellent stuff for Suzanne Rogers!

let’s give her some meaty material

perhaps along the line she self-medicates … addiction… then Victor truly does have a stroke

“Mother Horton”… wouldn’t this render all the Denizens of Salem… including fans alike

that’s okay that’s probably better than what the current writing team will come up with. You left out the part however where they all have a funeral in
Fake Leaf Park.

That fake park looks like as bad as that fake back yard on that old Brady Bunch series…must have some connection to the name Brady being Bradys on both shows…lol

Yes! Let’s hope that Molly is returning in a contract roll like Nadia Bjorlin is as Chloe! I love Melanie way better of course, her acting is superb, and 2 Emmy nominations don’t just stand for nothing 😉 can’t wait for her to be back!

I am all for her returning FT. I know so many are not, but I really like Molly Burnett and Melanie. I don’t care what other people say. I would like to see her and Phillip rekindle something. Keep her away from Brady. I am liking him with Theresa.

this is a big stretch…. even with new writers

they (writing team) certainly don’t seem to be having much affect with the SORAS teens… plus; Belle, Phillip, Shawn D., Claire, Lani, Nicole, Eric, Jennifer, Daniel

SHE ” ONLY ” needs to return to see her Dr. Dullard Dad … killed off

if… she is brought on long term… i’d tell to stop the tilting her head to the side and enough of the sweaters off the shoulder… and seriously! Brady is way out of your league… the furrowed expressions…. are ugh!

I totally agree with what you say about her being out of Brady’s league, the head tilting, sweaters off the shoulder and the overacting.

I do not wish her on Brady and even though I don’t like Melanie I can tolerate her when she’s with Gabi.

UGH please make this a very short return. Had to stop watching Days between this one and the Sami hour there was way too much overacting and destruction of the more interesting.

Days has to stop propping the Jonas’ all of them

The propping will end with a Jonahs heart stopping! The return of Melanie (and Chloe with Philip?) signals the end of the Jonahs family.

My guess: Daniel is killed by a drunk driver. Eric is blamed, but the culprit is really Maggie who turned back to booze over Caroline moving into the Kiriakis mansion. Melanie returns for her father’s funeral. Chloe returns for Parker. In the process, Philip is revealed to be Parker’s true father and Melanie leaves, but may return when her grandmother is sentenced to rehab for the death of Dr. Dan.

You are pretty good too…you are probably right about Parker…seems weird seeing him small and Arianna too when the other children were aged…i know the other kids were about a decade older anyway but its still weird to me…

I really like the idea… that … Phillip is revealed to be the father… and Victor has no recourse but to accept Chloe… much to Kate chagrin

Phillip is killed off somehow… (love, whomever, posted, that he’s in a mind fix ) so be it.. he’s not nuPhillip

he dies off trying to takeover Kiriakis.. but.. it’s Vincent Irizarry who comes to the rescue…

Peter Blake and or EJ is resurrected and launches the formidable DiMera

No way are they going to rewrite Parker’s paternity again. At least not until they get the real Phillip back.

No legitimacy for this latest idiotic recast, for the love of all that’s unholy.

more bad news on the days front.
.. instead of getting real keepers like jason cook as shawn, jay kenneth as phillip, bringing back real faves like austin and carrie, keeping eric and eve, giving jj ,paul , jennifer, justin, adrienne, lucas
….we get chloe and melanie!? ouch… days maybe wasted too much budget on a two week return for bo?! this is b.s…

I like Burnette as Melanie, but I need her acting to show growth. Enough of the overacting and silliness and coming across like a teen. She’s in her mid 20’s pushing 30 and she should project that maturity. I still also, think she would be an excellent replacement for Hope on B&B, should Kim decide not to return.

Tim Welles

Hopefully it’s a short return because her giddiness and teeny bopper attitude was beginning to get on my nerves as Melanie. If they allowed or instructed her to play the role with a tad more maturity maybe it would be okay.

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.)

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.
