    Not again, please!!!! What round is this? Did we not go through with Hope having a bout of “Jailhouse Rock” with a bully, before? She better find her boxing gloves.
    Second verse same as the first.

    Really??? A female head writer thinks having a beloved heroine roughed up and abused in prison is what viewers want to see and consider entertainment?? Maybe in a 1940’s B movie. Hope went through this already 6 short years ago. Its not entertaining….its unnecessary….the acting is never good mainly because females do not act like that outside of stereotypical….and its repetitive. For the most part I am a fan of Higley’s work at DAYS…I feel she “gets” the show. Just as I felt that Megan McTavish “got” All My Children. Say what you will about her, but she created some of the most memorable stories and couples on that show. Back to Higley though…I may be mistaken…but didnt she write Hope’s last prison abuse story too?

    I hope that’s a wig.

    I’m not too high on prison stories on soaps because they are very limited. We’ll see how this goes.

    Sorry that Hattie ends up in prison.

    Oh man I love T-Boz and TLC. I’m going to have to watch the show to see her scenes. I hope she is on more, I haven’t watched days in over a year but this looks good!

    watching days again mainly because jj and paul/ sonny / derrick are featured more!
    cant wait for eric, austin and carrie to return
    i just caught t boz on the show and was surprised to see her on screen! should be fun and entertaining
    t boz has nt done much lately so if days keep her around to fill the black cast up on days they should pair her up with tek, abes brother and stir things up in salem! or bring tyler rederic ( ex tyler) from y n r to pair her up with!

    The clip got my heart jumping—I am looking forward to this story!!!

    Don’t know her or TLC, so I don’t really care if she stays or goes. But I’m sick of the story line with Hope in prison. How can they put a cop in a prison that could have inmates that she arrested? I guess it’s a good thing that they ages Ciara so much, the one earlier this year would have needed her mother to care for her. Enough is enough, get Hope out of prison and get on with the show

    Wait don’t tell me Dot Marie will be the inmate who acts tough but will have a heart of gold and she will protect Hope — like many said before this has been done before– the only thing that seems remotely interesting is having DH play another role since Marlena has so little to do nowadays. But please let Hope save the warden’s daughter already or have Stefano is alive — anything to get her out of stupid story line that never should have existed in first place

    Sounds as typically STUPID as this show has absolutely been this entire year – hate to say it, for I am a soap fan – and was so saddened by the demise of ALL MY CHILDREN and One Life to Live but this show absolutely DOES NOT hold up against those shows at all – ALL soaps can be a tad on the silly side, but this show lacks the humor that All My Children had and it lacks severely in the dramatic writing area as well.

      Oh John Gordon, you are so right. I watched One Life to Live from day 1 and All My Children off and on for many years. Both knew how to successfully integrate humor into the series. I also have to agree with your other point. From what I’ve seen of the current soaps, they do not hold a candle compared to OLTL and AMC. The story lines are unbalanced. Some characters are on so sporadically that I forget they are part of the show. The big stories, i.e. the return of Aiden and the escaped criminals, fall flat. In all fairness, I do realized Days and the other shows are operating under tighter budgets these days. From flashbacks of scenes from years past, it looks like there was a time when Days was on par with AMC and OLTL. The current belt tightening has taken its toll. Perhaps it’s time for soaps to go back to radio.

        Yes it’s annoying that ABC pulled the plug on OLTL and All My Children and I also agree that the writers (and performers) understood how to incorporate dry humor into their shows (Susan Lucci is practically KNOWN for dry, understated humor) and certainly the character of Tad Martin as played by Michael Knight had a feel for balancing humor with drama when needed. But THIS show, geez, the writing is so astonishingly lame – Soaps can ‘get away’ with a certain lack of credibility but honestly this show carries that to a different extreme. I also agree that it gets a little monotonous that EVERY other scene is in that ridiculous Fake Leaf Park and there are about 4 sets used – gone are the days when soaps actually occasionally went OUTSIDE for an outdoor scene –

    As a former cop, Hope would be in protective custody. She would not be with other inmates. While inmates do have access to computers, it would not be unmonitored and I sincerely doubt they would have access to the Internet. An inmate day room would not double as a visiting room. At least give us a little reality Days!

    And Hope would not be able to get a job until after she was classified and had been inside a bit. She may talk to a CO about a job, but she’d have to also put in a request. There is a system. I’m guessing Hope is supposed to be at the state pen.

    I don’t like the prison storyline and the contrived, clichéd characters and speech. Days should never have had Hope kill Stefano. It put her character in an untenable position, made me lose respect for her.

    I have been watching DOOL for years. I was surprised to see T-Boz. I wasn’t sure it was her at first. I had to come to the site to make sure.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.

How The Virtual Daytime Emmys Came Together And Will Look and Feel

Friday night, daytime fans, soap fans, and all the hard working people in front of the camera and behind the scenes that make your favorite soap operas come to life; will be awaiting the announcement in 15 categories to see who is the recipients of this year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmys.

The show finally back on network TV and on CBS, and according to Variety the show is going to be pre-taped, but to keep the element of surprise, presenters  appearing on the Emmys were asked to tape 5 different envelope openings — and every nominee in the major categories presented will have been asked to tape an acceptance speech.

As for keeping the winners’ identities under wraps, NATAS President and CEO Adam Sharp shared: “We’ve established an internal process so that actual knowledge of the winner is kept as a need-to-know basis on a category-by-category basis.  Certainly as we get closer to final delivery of the show, on the week of the 26th, there will be those who start seeing the whole picture come together. But obviously, a big goal of that is keeping that circle small.”

Look for more clips and visuals than usual in the virtual Daytime Emmys.  According to ATI’s, Al Schwartz who is executive producing the telecast: “Since it’s pre-taped, we can really present, for the viewers’ entertainment, the best possible visuals for each nominee. There’s going to be time to breathe in this show. And also, there’s time to keep the pacing up, so that it doesn’t get monotonous.”

The ladies of The Talk serve as hosts for Daytime’s biggest night, even though everyone will be shown from their homes.  It all starts at 8 p. m. EST/7 p. m. CST and tape delayed on the west coast airing at 8 p. m. PST.
