In an interesting interview with TV Line’s, Matt Webb Mitovich, three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Sarah Brown talks about her decision for coming on to Days of our Lives in the new role of Madison James in a very difficult soap climate.  The acting dynamo also fills the Salem viewers in on who she will be romantically linked with and who she may have known in the past, and teases Madison has deep skeletons in her closet!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Sarah on who Madison will be pointed towards romantically and when will viewers notice that: “You’re going to get it real fast, like within my first 24 hours on the show. [Laughs] One thing I think is really important is chemistry, and if actors have chemistry audiences will pick up on that. Audiences will root for characters that don’t even exist as a couple because the actors’ chemistry is so strong. So, thankfully, Eric (Martsolf) and I have a fabulous chemistry.”

Sarah on how Greg Meng, DAYS  co-executive producer has a vested interest in making DAYS work in this challenging time in the genre :  “Greg has all the hopes for daytime that I have, that it can be completely turned around. I feel I have a good sense of what it’s lacking, and Greg and I agree on what that is. It’s got to be out with the old way of doing things, where you take for granted that the audience isn’t paying attention. Daytime is infamous for being the type of show you can watch once a week, so the idea that you need to say every bit of information from the last three days in every scene is just outdated. People are a lot smarter now, so the average person will call bulls–t on that. Saying the name of the character in every line, people hiding behind bushes and pretending the other characters can’t see them…. That’s got to change. You need to find new, inventive ways.”

So soapers,  are you looking forward to seeing Sarah as very strong businesswoman, Madison James? Let us know!

I can’t believe Madison is married. Ugh, my mom and I are so frustrated with Madison’s character because she doesn’t like Madison James. I’m an avid DOOL watcher and I’ve been watching since I was 6 years old and I think that Sarah Brown who plays Madison is beautiful. My sister and I read a spoiler on the Days of Our Lives website that Ian kidnaps Madison to keep her from telling anybody that she’s married.

Glad Days is bringing on a business woman. Images of women have to be brought into the 21st century on soaps!

I certainly agree with that. I just wish she didn’t look so much like Tamara Braun. Ew.

Christie, she doesn’t look like Tamara Braun, she’s more beautiful than her. Tamara Braun is her sister and she’s too skinny.

The character Madison James is annoying. The scenes Thursday, Oct. 27, with Brady were awkward and way too long. It was almost soft porn that just kept going and going…and seemed completely inappropriate in a business office. Much more of her rubbing oil on Brady may cause me to stop watching.

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.

Alison Sweeney Signs New Multi-Picture Overall Deal with Hallmark

Days of our Lives favorite, Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) has signed a multi-picture overall  deal with the Hallmark Media.

According to Deadline, as part of Sweeney’s new deal she will star and executive produce A Magical Christmas Village with also stars Luke McFarlane and Marlo Thomas.  The movie will premiere later this year during the Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas.

In story, Sweeney plays Summer, an architect living in a small town where she’s raising her young daughter Chloe. When her mother Vivian (Thomas) finds herself in need of a place to live, her orderly life becomes a little less so after inviting Vivian to move in with them during this transition. Upon arrival, Vivian sets up an heirloom, miniature Christmas village resembling their town, and tells Chloe it grants Christmas wishes. As Chloe begins setting up the figurines, real-life events seem to mimic the scenes she creates, including Summer’s chance meeting with Ryan (Macfarlane), a newcomer to their community.

In a statement on inking the pact with Hallmark Media, Sweeney shared: “I am thrilled to continue to work with Hallmark as they continue to support my work as an actress and as a producer. I’m very proud of our Christmas movie and excited for the future projects to come!”

Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Media, added:  “Alison Sweeney has been an incredible creative partner for us over the years – both on screen as well as behind the camera as a producer. She’s long been a fan favorite and we can’t wait to continue our work together as we bring new stories to life.”

Sweeney has been making story arc visits to Days of our Lives in recent years.  No word if she will be making a return to the series now that its permanently on Peacock.

So, will you be checking out Alison’s new movie when it comes out in time for holiday season? Comment below.

Taking on the role of motion-picture star Johnny Depp will be none other than former Days of our Lives cast member, Mark Hapka (Ex-Nathan Horton). Hapka played Nathan from 2007-2011 on the daytime drama series.

Megan Davis will star opposite Hapka in the role of Aquaman star, Amber Heard.

In a statement, Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer for Tubi, shared:  “Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial has ‘Hot Take’ in the title for a reason.  With our partners at MarVista, this Tubi Original was fast-tracked into production to capture a timely take on a story that became part of the cultural zeitgeist, painting a unique picture of what millions watched play out in the headlines over the summer.”

So, what are your thoughts of the casting of Hapka as Depp, and do you think it’s too soon for a movie based on a trial that just wrapped a few months ago in June to be released? Comment below.
