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 »

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
