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 OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
