Days Of Our Lives

NBC Execs Weigh-In On DAYS Future And Remain Hopeful!

Courtesy/NBC

After all the rumors began circulating that NBC’s longest running dramatic series, Days of our Lives may be cancelled in favor of a new daytime talk show hosted by former Fox news anchor, Megyn Kelly who signed a lucrative deal with the peacock network, fans of the soap have been concerned.

However, on Wednesday at the network’s TCA (Television Critics Association) panel, NBC entertainment president, Bob Greenblatt addressed the future of the 51-year-old soap opera with its beloved characters and the town of Salem.

Greenblatt expressed to TV Line: “We don’t make a decision for another couple months. But I don’t think it’s over yet.”  As to how Kelly coming over to the network immediately had people thinking that DAYS’ days were numbered, the exec added:  “Everybody assumed that she would kill that show. And that’s a bad assumption.  It’s still too early to know where she’s going to be in daytime. And we have a lot of news hours in daytime, so there’s some flexibility.”

As to if Days of our Lives fans worst nightmare were to come true, Greenblatt revealed he would give the show as much notice as possible, “We would try to do that. Unfortunately, soap operas are written so far ahead of when they air… like, six months. But yeah, we would try to be respectful.”

In addition, NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke told Deadline on DAYS future, “We hope that the show comes back.”  While Greenblatt told the outlet, “I think we will know more in couple of months. As they age, these shows diminish, there is a lot of delayed viewing and very little linear viewing anymore, you have to keep looking at that.” Deadline also shared that they are hearing that the odds are in favor of DAYS getting its renewal pick-up.

So, what do you think of the thoughts expressed by Robert Greenblatt and Jennifer Salke on the future of Days of our Lives?  Will there be more DAYS ahead? Share your comments below.

We don’t need another daytime talk show really . Everybody I know watches Days. I myself now at age 55, remember coming home from kindergarten and watching Days with my mom. I have continued to watch all these years . Love the show and would hate to see it go for another talk show . Believe me if NBC wants to upset a lot of viewers that is exactly what will happen if Days gets axed. Keep Days ALIVE!

I know it’s a different network, but after what Brian Frons did to AMC and OLTL over at ABC, I believe absolutely nothing that comes out of the mouth of Daytime Executives. The bottom line is they don’t care. NBC will cancel DAYS without a backward glance. Frons cancelled the ABC soaps, lied to Susan Lucci after she asked TPTB point blank if the rumors were true — and laughed at the people who were outside protesting. No, I’m afraid DAYS is in its last days… SIGN OF THE TIMES

@NBC – and – @ SONY

please… just let it alone… it’s been a staple… of your daytime lineup for … 50+ years

Me too Patrick,. I love Days. Deadline.com did say, Days has a 60 percent chance that it will get renewed for one more year. Lets hope this is true
We fans need to stick together. Days is getting better. I love that Leann Hunley is back as Anna Dimera. I adore Leann Hunley, you love her too Patrick. I always read your comments, always agree with your comments. They need to sign Leann to a contract, she is a wonderful actress. They better not cancel Days, I will be devasted if they do.

Recast Sierra with Brittany Underwood ex Langston OLTL, she is a terrific actress. Get rid of Claire, she is very annoying and not a very good actress. I am sure, she is a terrific lady, but that’s how I feel. Keep Carrie and Austin, I love there acting. A suggestion bring back Wayne northrop, the original Roman Brady.

Execs need to stop flogging a dead horse. Promises of the return to legacy have fallen by the wayside…the veterans have either moved on or they are staying as far from this total flop as possible. Let’s be honest; the failure to replace actors who played Sami, EJ and yes Bo were the biggest mistakes made. TPTB refusal to stop this stupid filming 6 months in advance should have their head examined. It leaves no opportunity to correct errors etc. A big example of this is the possible sighting of our beloved Stefano. The actor died immediately prior to the… Read more »

I believe that both Kristen Alfonso and legions of fans will react very badly to the idea of another actor been given the role of Bo Brady. These fans will never stop hoping that Peter Reckell will change his mind and return to DOOL. As for Kristen Alfonso, the last time they cast another actor, Robert Kelker-Kelly, it did not end well. It’s more than difficult to stop the filming 6 months in advance since there are now six months worth of episodes that fans have no seen, if you get what I am saying. As for recasting EJ and… Read more »

I hope the NBC executives seriously take into account that there will not be an audience for Megan Kelly during that time slot… I know viewership for soaps is not what it used to be but Days is the last remaining daytime serial on NBC, it has so much history and an audience that has remained loyal to it, it would be a real shame and turn me off NBC forever if it goes away for yet another daytime talk show that will likely fail with in a year or two.

I always love “corporate speaks”…”as they age, these shows diminish, there’s a lot of delayed viewing and not a lot of linear viewing anymore.” Maybe it’s just me but I get the feeling NBC is still hedging their bets on renewal. Hope I’m wrong for Days and it’s fans. Why do they write six months ahead?

Irregardless of what some think of her most important is the networks view of her importance. The same they had with Katie Couric. I have been watching soaps since 1969 and have watched nunerous come and go. By now you know the lingo when it comes to cancelation. The show is over and trying to be shopped elsewhere. Which won’t happen either. Like Rachel Maddow says “watch this space”.

This is a tough one to call because we all know how the Nielsen ratings show low numbers for DAYS but at the same time, I can’t picture NBC wanting to be the one major network that doesn’t have a soap in it’s afternoon lineup. I guess we wait and see what the decision will be in a couple of months.

I hope it stays. Let them look to ABC to see what happens when you get rid of soaps for other shows. The grass isn’t always greener. NBC has one soap. ONE HOUR OF THE DAY! How many hours of news and talk shows do they have? Way too many. I watch a little of the Today show in the morning and I DVR Days. I don’t watch their other programming–even if I’m home. And I won’t watch Megyn Kelly. Not a show I’m interested in.

I just watch the morning shows (I will switch channels between ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC) while getting my dog’s breakfast ready in the morning weekdays. So it’s not like I’m sitting down ensconced with NBC Today.

There are a lot of news channels. If people want news, let them watch those. Far too many talk shows and news on IMO.

While Greenblatt told the outlet, “I think we will know more in couple of months. As they age, these shows diminish, there is a lot of delayed viewing and very little linear viewing anymore, you have to keep looking at that.” What is so hopeful about this comment??? Days is in last place of the ratings for a pool of shows where NONE of them have stellar ratings. I don’t watch Days but am not hoping that it is cancelled. However, to think the show is in a good position to be renewed seems like wishful thinking. Greenblatt’s remark is… Read more »

The NBC exec doesn’t want to be besieged by soap fans right now so he beats around the bush. But his comments on viewership will drive the bus and Days will be canceled. I don’t think the fate is tied to Megan Kelly as much as it is tied to lousy ratings, poor demographics. TV is a business and one by one soaps are biting the dust. This year it will be Days, then GH. Maybe the CBS shows hang on another few years. The smart soap actors have long since moved to other gigs like Cameron Mathison and Rickey… Read more »

If the election taught me anything, it was do NOT believe the polls. I think it is crazy to believe that the ratings are as low as they say, yet 5,000 turn out for an event in Tennessee last year. If Anderson Cooper and Katie Couric can’t be successful in daytime, what makes NBC think we need another talk show? If the network would invest more money in the show for sets and other expenses, the quality and product would lead to better ratings. I am still not over losing “All My Children” five years ago.

Days has been on for year’s and if they take it off to put someone like Megan on in it’s place the network need’s there heads examined. She’s the last person I would tune in to watch. Thank god for cable , at least there would be something else to tune in to. Keep Days on.

Don’t watch Days. Did spend a summer with it during the Denise Alexander/Susan Martin storyline; the Susan Flannery/Laura Horton days, and the Doug/Julie/Addie triangle, but not much after that. (Was elated when Denise Alexander came to GH as Lesley Williams!) Anyway – as an avid viewer of OLTL I can say that all these proclamations from NBC execs – if you read between the lines – all sound very much like DOOL will be cancelled. Their statements come across as Brian Frons-speak. And we all know what he did. Sorry.

Barbara Bloom sounded like that new NBC exec when she cancelled ATWT and GL. Get ready Days fans — the sand may no longer flow in the hourglass. Another stupid executive that wants to put on another talk show on daytime — and a news one at that! More fake political news to confuse the public. Bob Greenblatt has a not so impressive resume so he is going to tell me what I need to watch. And Megan is in love with herself anyway – just put her in front of a mirror and let her kiss herself. OMG!

Why the hate for Meghan K. The show has had years to get the ratings up but failed. Mostly due to the stubborn refusal of the powers that be to get rid of the six month film schedule, break up their aging super couples and the failure to make hard choices as to which vets should go and who should stay. And don’t get me started on musical chairs with Dena H. Very talented cast that in the hands of the right writers could have saved the show. Its sad to see the show cancelled but all good things come… Read more »

Although I’m not a regular viewer of Days, I’d hate to see the show go off the air. Bob Greenblatt was incorrect, however, in assuming that all soaps tape six months in advance. To the best of my knowledge, only Days does that. Which brings me to the best reason not to tape six months in advance: so many things can happen in and to this world in the course of half a year that the writers couldn’t possibly include in their episodes. The biggest example of that is the very sad death of Joe Mascolo and any knowledge of… Read more »

Days Fans, Y & R Fans, B & B Fans, and GH Fans: Cancellations are just a matter of time. We said it wouldn’t happen to the others: and it did.

DAYS Cady McClain & Rob Scott Wilson Talk Being Recasts, All My Children Reboot, Future of Cin & Jennifer’s Bitch-Slap

Current Days of our Lives and former All My Children reboot stars, Cady McClain (Jennifer, Days, Ex-Dixie, AMC) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, Days, Ex-Pete AMC) chat with Michael Fairman in an enlightening and exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

McClain, who recently took over the role of Days of our Lives beloved heroine Jennifer Horton from mainstay Melissa Reeves (who chose to stay with her family in Nashville during Covid-19 thus forcing the series to recast the role for now) talks about stepping into the key part of the Salem canvas, plus the recent Jennifer/Kate fight over Jack (Matthew Ashford), and how the legacy series is coping with production during Covid-19.

Cady is no stranger to be a recast.  She was the second actress to play Dixie on ABC’s All My Children, as well as the second actress to play Rosanna on As the World Turns, and she had previously taken over the role of Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless.

Rob, talks about landing the role of Ben and being a recast, and in an emotional moment, reveals how he credits the opportunity to the late producer, Lisa de Cazotte. Wilson also shares his hopes for his Salem alter-ego who is struggling to move on with his life after the supposed death of his wife, Ciara.

The actor also opens up on if DAYS decided to recast the role of Ciara, since Victoria Konefal is not presently with the NBC soap full-time, how he would feel about it and thus the future of Cin.

Photo: JPI

Both Cady and Rob first appeared together in Prospect Park’s online revival of All My Children. In this interview, they discuss how they had high hopes for the continuation of the series, how it ultimately fizzled, and what it was like to be a part of the then, groundbreaking first, for a daytime drama series along with One Life to Live.

Photo: TOLN

In addition, Cady gives the viewer insight on how she runs lines for both DAYS and GH at home with her real-life husband, Jon Lindstrom (Kevin and Ryan, GH), while Rob talks about his recent storyline where Ben was kidnapped and tortured by a vengeful Eve (Kassie DePavia) and much more.

Check out the full chat with Cady and Rob below. Then weigh-in: How would you feel if there was a Ciara recast? What are your hopes for the holidays for Jennifer?

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
