Days of our Lives this morning released an official statement welcoming Sarah Brown to the cast and revealed who she will be playing in Salem!  The show confirms that Brown will play Madison James, a powerful and seductive CEO who looks to take on, in  one way or another, Sami, Kate, Brady, and Victor.

Sarah stated about her new role: “Days of our Lives is one of television’s historic gems. I’m excited to join such a talented cast as well as to play such a strong yet feminine character that will inspire our female viewer.”  The three time Daytime Emmy winner, joins former cast members Matthew Ashford, Christie Clark, and Patrick Muldoon, who are returning to the show, in celebrating its 46th season on the air.

Greg Meng,  DAYS Co-Executive Producer, commented, “We are thrilled to have Sarah join our family at ‘Days.’  We needed a strong actress who can mold this character and go toe-to-toe with other strong actresses such as Alison Sweeney and Lauren Koslow. Madison defines a new femininity, displaying confidence, savvy, and elegance.”

This could be good soapers, don’t you think? Let us know your thoughts and stay tuned!

They should also bring back martha madison as belle, and jason cook as shawn. Bryan D as lucas please. As well as faye Nicole mom, I adored abe and faye. Send rafe packing. It seem so weird that patrick muldoon is back. I have to be honest. patrick to me doesn’t respect the soap genre, he left because he got a better offer and I have a strong feeling his time at days is not perment. Pat will probably leave again onced something better comes along again!!!. Austin peck and Christie clark did a great job. And I absolute detested… Read more »

Quote “plus he looks like john and marelna”, Kyle Lowder was Brady from 2000 – 2005. But I’m not sure why Kyle or Eric should look like Marlena. Brady’s mother is Isabella Toscano Black, not Marlena. But I did love Kyle as Brady also, I’m just not sure he could pull of the dark side of Brady we are see now from Eric.

Not excited. I’ve never enjoyed SJB, and I hate it when soaps bring in other “name” soap stars and make them brand-new characters instead of connecting them to core families. This role should have been Sarah Horton.

Funny you say that b/c Sarah originated Carly on GH and Tamara took over the role which is now played by Laura Wright.

I think it would be great to finally have Nicole/Brady/ and now Madison story! Nicole & Brady have been need of new story and direction for a long while! It’s about time Nicole & Brady got a story and someone to tackle. It’s been reported that Madison will set her sights on Brady. Which means that you know Nicole is not going to like that one bit!

Nicole/Brady/Madison story makes great sense and something new and fresh for the characters of Brady and for Nicole, and the right placement and direction for them together!

Days better get it right, because Sami can only be her old Sami self with Lucas there to cheer her on. Lucas needs to be added to this storyline!

No offense well actually a lot of offense! So they let go of a phenomenal two time emmy winning out of this world talented actress Crystal Chappell ,and turn around and hire Sarah brown? They had so much potential with Bo and Carly, Jenn and Carly or even Daniel and Carly. Im extremely disappointed and DOOL has just taken what little interest I had in watching the show and chucked it out the window! Ill finish watching CC storyline and shut DOOL off permanently! Onward and up ward to Venice and the Grove!

The storyline with Madison James sounds like it is going to be good. Looking forward to it, especially if she takes on Kate and Victor. It will be fun to see someone take them down a notch or two!

I think it’s a good hire. We’ll miss carly,vivian etc. but who knows they may be brought back later. i’ve heard rumors that chloe may return late 2011,early 2012. As far as the current storylines the writers are tying up loose ends to relaunch the show. Let’s give them a chance before we judge them. More vets would be nice. and hey who knows if the ratings go up and stay up we may all get our wishes or a days spin off??????

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

‘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.
