Victoria Konefal Returns to Days of our Lives

Photo: NBC

Cin fans will be happy to know the other half of the DAYS super couple will be back on-screen later this month as Ben (Rob Scott Weston) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) love story is set to continue.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

When the missing in action Ciara returns she will bring with her a new character named Rhodes played by Jason Downs.

No word on how long Konefal’s stay will be this time, since she has been off-contract with the show since last year.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.

Thrilled. She is the next generation star of DOOL. I know actors always want to do other things, but I hope VK’s stay will be for the distant future. If not, the character is too central to the show not to be recast. Now, let’s see how Hope’s absence is explained.

I agree. But hope, she can stay gone. Dont care for her anymore. She hurt rafe and he need someone in his life that’s going to love him like nicole. Erick is a disappoint so it’s time for her to move on. I think they will make a great couple. Plus he loves kids.like to see eva plot to get steve back and find Charlie guilty. I like the old Clair better. This one don’t fit the part. She’s to nieve to me.

They are thinking of recasting hope for ciara’s return I don’t really know if they are actually going to do it though

Satan

HELL no!!

After the godawful abominations that the current regime has passed off as “Eve” and “Diana”, and the new “Claire”, who can act but is literally older than her mother should be (Belle was born in 1994, for Hell’s sake and now has a daughter who’s 28??) I really do NOT want to see what a “Hope” recast looks like from this regime. Probably 10-15 years too old for the part and horribly miscast, if they want to be consistent with their recent track record.

This story line needs to be brought back to DOOL. This relationship although new is a significant lifeline to the show. Ben is just floating his character has no purpose. Whoever thought releasing Victoria was a smart move made a huge mistake!! The chemistry between Ben and Ciara is so real it’s amazing. Currently the show is lacking something it seems to hit a brick wall. Ben and Ciara’s lives intertwine with all the characters in Salem some way. Without them the show has a huge dead spot. I must admit after being a fan for a long time I… Read more »

Yes, Im glad she is returning! I hope the guy she is bringing with her won’t interfere with the relationship between she and Ben. The couple deserves their time together. I also hope this show isn’t ending! I’ve been watching since I was 6 years old, and I am now 61!! It has become a part of my life!!

Satan
Guest

Depends on how you define “interfere”…. the new character “Rhodes” is the thug that Psycho Vincent hired to hold Ciara hostage, so it’s not likely there would be any romantic involvement between the two.

That is, unless ReRon drags out the tired old amnesia gimmick, and Ciara doesn’t realize she’s a hostage.

I suspect that ReRon will do with Jan Spears what he did with Heather Webber on GH…. She will be the cartoonish token psychopath that ReRon drags out of the attic once or twice a year when he needs a mindless “filler” storyline.

Ben deserves happiness with ciera. Bring her and bo back. The show is not the same without him and his daughter. Also can somebody find a man for Kate that’s not young enough to be her son. Wow I like Kate she reminds me of Victoria on the halves and have notes. She’s a diva but can’t seem to find a man her own age. I know she’s lonely but do yal have to make her look like a desperate cougar on da hunt for fresh young meat? It’s time for her to come up again and be that diva… Read more »

‘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.

DAYS Alum Mark Hapka to Play Johnny Depp in Tubi Film on Heard/Depp Trial

That didn’t take long! A TV movie based on the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation case is set to have its premiere on September 30th on Tubi.

Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial will follow the tumultuous relationship in court and out of Depp and his ex-wife in a dramatization of the two-month long defamation trial that captivated the public.

Photo: AP

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.
