Days Of Our Lives

NBC says it's sticking with DAYS for now!

At today’s Television Critics Association panel for NBC in Los Angeles, Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment, addressed the future of the only soap on the peacock network, Days of our Lives.

Greenblatt said, “At the moment, we are happy with its performance. I think it will be on for a while.  Talk about aging shows.  My hat is off to them as they creatively keep these things going. It is the only soap that we have. I think it does relatively well for us.”

According to theHollywoodknow. who also attended the TCA’s, Greenblatt stated for all the cast changes at Days,  that the network had not dictated any of those. “None of those changes have been at our request,” he said.

As to whether or not he thinks the soap might pick up additional audience once the two ABC shows air their finales, he says, “I  think you might be right that some of these [soaps] going away may open up an audience. You may also be seeing this genre going into the twilight years with all the other talks shows and games shows [coming up].”

This show is on it’s way out as well, lack of diversity on soaps are so out right now. Most people are tired of seeing the same type of people get all the intriging story lines while others are used as back ground post.

Well, I for one am not sticking with Days! I’m getting tired of characters being fired, written off only to have them brought back a year or two later. I grew up on the CBS soaps and I really can’t remember this happening there. This is not what this fan wants. September 22 will be the last episode of Days that I will ever watch again. Sorry, Days! SEE YA!!!

To me, the majority of the talk shows are people moaning and groaning about something or promoting something they are doing. That’s not an escape on every day life…Soaps have lasted because people work hard and soaps allow people a chance to relax and watch characters that have been a part of their lives for such a long time. Talk shows are going to get OLD as more and more networks try and replicate the ones that are already on TV. Then, after they have cancelled their soaps, they are going to be scrambling to figure out what to put… Read more »

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
