Photo: ABC

In great news for Days of our Lives, Daytime-Emmy winning scribe, Ron Carlivati has renewed his contract with the NBC soap opera.  Formerly head writer at One Life to Live and General Hospital, Carlivati took over the lives of the good people of Salem back in 2017, and since then the show has been on a creative and ratings uptick.

Ron spoke with Soap Opera Digest and revealed he is staying put in Salem stating: “I am both thrilled and grateful to be staying put in Salem.”

After winning a Daytime Emmy for his work on the show (from the 2017 season last April of 2018), and the series winning the trifecta of Writing, Show and Directing, Ron added: “From day one, (executive producer) Ken Corday, (Co-executive producer) Greg Meng, and the entire cast and crew at Days of or Lives welcomed me into their family with open arms. It is truly and honor and a privilege to write for these wonderful characters on this legendary show.”

Look for more drama, mystery, romance and antics, Carlivati-style in the days and months to come.

So, DAYS fans, glad to hear Ron is staying on-board at DAYS? Comment below,

Ron is currently the best and most consistent head writer working in daytime. Bradley Bell over at B&B has been driving the show into the ground for years, Mal Young has completely changed Y&R in the last year, and GH has been suffering from major ups and downs with each regime since Ron left the show. But over the last two years, DAYS has been on fire, showcasing more vets in front-burner story than any other soap, and giving fans what they want. With the recent addition of Judith Chapman and return of Diana Colville, Ron is really digging into… Read more »

“… and GH has been suffering from major ups and downs with each regime since Ron left the show ” ^^^ this is all I’ve been clamoring about. Frank / Shelly / Chris w/Jean the nonstop showcase of Carly and Sonny ; Jason and Sam ; Michael , Finn, Franco, Peter… have done nothing to reach the 18-49 demographic, women stronghold… if they ain’t ‘tending the show ALL the rest of the cast is missing in action… just left by the wayside… yes, I will “clamor” and use this thread for my passion PASSION : thanks to Jason Patrick Stuart..… Read more »

Ahhhh, Patrick….always on target, you are!! A lot of ‘face’ could be saved by ‘re-arranging’ some storylines…..the potential is there. Let’s have a look at EJ’s new face……Have Johnny DiMera come back as a teen and have a relationship with his Dad. The opening is there……Rafe ran to Sami’s side to give a hand in ‘straightening’ out whatever problem she was having with her son. Perhaps, Johnny’s sibling, Allie Horton should also come back……no youth on the show anymore. ….miss that!! The kidnapping of Ciera and baby Charlotte is lunacy…..”what have they done to” Jordan, “Ma?”. I always loved both… Read more »

his only mistake was to cast Judith Chapman as Diana intead of Genie Francis . Sadly Diana is unrecognizable even personality wise . The shows history matters to us and we have a great memory .Diana was more than John’s girlfriend . They were engaged at one point and Diana was never this neurotic , nasty and unstable woman . We all are fond of Ron’s work but the Diana we all love needs to return to our screens . Bring back our Diana ! Bring back our Genie Francis . We want the magic of Drake Hogestyn and Genie… Read more »

Great news, but I would like to see more slow-build romance and Adrienne/Bonnie, Hattie/Marlena and multiple characters played by the same actor. In the coming year, bring back Steve, Stephanie and Joey and make the Johnsons front-and-center. I would also love to see a realistic storyline with a character like Kate dealing with a serious illness. I have always said it would be great to have Colleen Zenk playing Kate’s sister and they have a love/hate relationship. In addition, it would be nice to see Phillip back and maybe a sibling for Sonny.

Great… another year of endless newbies, recycled storylines, ridiculous plot point writing, and recasts of characters that have been gone for decades, which don’t make a shred of sense.

Yes, it’s good to hear Ron is staying at DAYS! Ron, maybe Sami’s rapist, Alan Harris, can return disguised as an older lady named Lana Sirrah. Lana could become Ari’s nanny. Sami can return, but Carrie is a must, too. She was Alan’s first target many years ago. Plus, Carrie and Austin’s intersex child, Noah, could somehow help Alan/Lana. The last thing viewers knew of Alan is that his junk was shot by Sami. Therefore, linking Alan to Noah, who has extra genitalia, would be a good contrast. I’m not being sarcastic. I just feel thinking outside the box is… Read more »

Well, dahaaam!
I wanted Ron Carlivati back at GH..
trade Frank for Ron..

GH is a pile of mold..
It’s like watching hair growing on a statue..

GH is in dire straights and it desperately needs to clean house..

Frank has stayed way beyond his time, like a decade, it seems..
and what’s her name (the one that near killed Y&) she needs to retire
both need to GET OUT!!

((I wanted Ron back 🙁

Well, dahammmm!
I wanted Ron back to GH..
I’d like to trade- Frank to Days Ron to GH..

Frank has way overstayed his time ay GH and he became a worn out drag that needs to go and take that whatshername with him , she near killed Y&R not easily done but she did it)
0ooh lawdy! the music box story, I’m lost for words on that one..

GH has become moldy an overkill of stale !!

GH suites need to put an effort into GH and bring in new writing talent if not, it will remain to die its slow death.

Fantastic news and congratulations to Ron & Days. Ron “gets” the soap opera genre and gives me the thrills and chills and humor I haven’t experienced since the prime years of All My Children.

SO MANY of us have been Days of our lives fans for quite some time . We are more than thrilled and happy that Ron Carlivati is staying as head writer . The quality of his writing is simply outstanding . However we encourage him to recast Diana Colville with the original portrayer the wondeful Genie Francis . We simply want to see the thruthfull portrayal of Diana , she was simply not the person that Judith Chapman plays . We don’t want this version of Diana we want the Diana we all fell in love with and we want… Read more »

I don’t like how he has returned characters played by actors who played other characters on the show and completely changed their personality. Old Brady is the new Rex, who used to be a stand up guy and a hot nerd and now he’s a wonanising cad. Old Angelica is now new Diana who used to be a heroine and now she’s a bitchy type. At least Jordan is played by the same actress but again a sympathetic characters has now gone crazy. I really thought she would come on to support her brother, but as yet they havn’t even… Read more »

I’m not impressed with any of these stories. They are all sad and depressing. And this Eve and Jack as mayor and Comish is just stupid. And stop bringing back people from the dead. None of this is enjoyable. You’re wasting the talents of some very good actors.

Some great news for daytime fans!  Following a deal announced today between National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and CBS, the network now has a two-year deal to broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards.

CBS will present this year’s 48th Annual Daytime Emm Awards, on Friday, June 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network and it will stream live and on demand on Paramount+.   This will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network.

In addition, this is the first time since 2008 that one network will broadcast both the Daytime and Primetime Emmy awards in the same year. CBS last hosted both specials in 2005.

 

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00PM, as well as all forms of children’s television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content.

NATAS also revealed today that this year’s Daytime Emmys are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011 and 2020. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and director from ATI.

So excited about the Daytime Emmys will return to network TV for two more years guaranteed, and that we have a date for this year’s presentation this summer? Comment below.
