The time is upon us Days of our Lives fans!  This week, Alison Sweeney departs Salem in her role as Sami after over two decades of playing one of the most central roles in the history of the iconic soap opera.

NBC gave Alison, and her fans, a special send-off with this touching video package complete with retrospective clips.   In it, Alison shares that she has been a fan of Days of our Lives all of her life, and to find out she would be coming to the show to play the daughter of Deidre Hall (Marlena) was something she will never forget! And that she secretly hoped that she would play the villain on the show, which is something she definitely got to experience!

Alison also shares some of her favorite scenes including when Sami bitch-slapped Nicole (Arianne Zucker) after finding out about her duplicity with baby Sydney, and the more recent standalone episode where Sami finds out that EJ (James Scott) slept with Abigail, even though that turned out to be a nightmare of EJ’s!  And Alison talks about all of her leading men on DAYS, and how she was very lucky that each and every guy was wonderful to work with.  Later, in an emotional moment she talks about leaving the series and is finally saluted by some of her co-stars and some of her fans, as they wish Alison well as she moves forward with her life and her career!

Watch Alison Sweeney’s very personal farewell to DAYS video after the jump! Then share with us your favorite scenes of Alison’s time on the show, and who was your favorite all-time love interest for Sami?

It will seem strange without her but i wish AS well and i know she’ll make some future visits…very curious to see how the show performs without two of its powerhouse stars…i remember when Doug and Julie left and it took a little time to get used to but back then the show had other interesting characters and storylines…not so much this time mainly because of the boring Jordan storyline…with the exit of Ejami, the Jordan storyline shouldve been more front and center and holding viewers interest during major cast departures but its not and it may hurt the show… Read more »

Now that Chrishell Stause will be leaving DAYS, the boring and tedious storyline revolving Jordan and her many secrets will be quickly wrapped up. I watch DAYS mostly (if not only) for Eileen Davidson. I just love Kristen Dimera! I’ve never been a big fan of Ali Sweeny or EJami. I know they have many fans; but, we all have our favorites. I do think that the actress has done a great job leaving while paying respect to the character and all of the actors she has had major storylines with.

I’m going to miss this lady a lot. I wanted Sami to end up with Rafe in the end, so I’m sad that didn’t happen, but gosh…What great fun it’s been to watch Alison Sweeney work. All the best to her in whatever she decides to do next.

Although I’ve only watched Days the last 3 years,
I’ve really enjoyed Alison and Sami. She will be missed! It is so nice the hear an actress really appreciate the opportunity they’ve been given.

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”
