Courtesy CBS

So it’s summer.  It’s hot outside, and when it’s hot outside soap opera hunks strip half naked! And, the summer of 2012 looks no different!

Over in Genoa City on The Young and the Restless, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Neil (Kristoff St. John) play basketball shirtless while Carmine (Marco Dapper) steps out of the shower for an in awe Abby (Marcy Rylan).  Meanwhile, Billy and Victoria, Chloe and Kevin, Cane and Lily, and Adam and Chelsea, get shall-we-say cozy!  All of this action takes place in this week’s CBS summer promo.

Over in Salem, it’s the couples that non-are-to-pleased about that are featured in the new NBC summer promo including a shirtless Rafe (Galen Gering) with Carrie (Christie Clark), a shirtless Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian) doing it on the desk with Nicole (Arianne Zuker) and of course a shirtless EJ (James Scott)!

So after the jump watch “Men without Shirts” and let us know who is your favorite! And, what do you think about the couples shown in the spots?  Who would you like to see more of? And, who would you like to see less of? And we don’t mean clothes!  Let us know!

Am a Days fan, but these guys are not my favs. Too much exposure! And I don’t mean their bodies. We see way too much of EJ and Rafe.
Would like to see a whole lot more of Jack and Bo, before they are gone, and I always want to see WAY MORE of my favorite Salem man….John!

Shirts or no shirts, I have zero interest in seeing these couples on Days of our Lives. The couple I want to see the most is the one they won’t show, Will and Sonny. Thanks to the talents of both Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, and the fantastic chemistry they share, WilSon has the potential to be daytime’s next super couple. Sadly, Days seems too cowardly to move forward with on on-screen romance for these much loved characters. It’s disappointing and aggravating, especially since this show is running out of time. I really wish they would grow a pair, before it’s too late! I want WilSon now!

That’s great news!!! It can’t happen soon enough! I really hope they do their love story justice and treat them fairly and honestly! There is great potential for WilSon and it would be a real shame to waste it! Also glad to hear that Judi will have more screen time! Love her!

These men should always be shirtless, regardless that it’s summer lol.

But God Carmine on Y&R, EJ and Rafe on Days have amazing bodies, they should always be shirtless. Daniel on Days may need to go but he has a hot, hairy body!

Well I will always defer to the character Nicholas Cassidine formerly on GH..his body was magnificent! No other male character can compare.

Will Jackée Harry Find Herself In Salem and Days of our Lives?

From out-of-a-tweet from Grammy night come a part for TV and film star, Jackée Harry on Days of our Lives?

As CBS aired the Recording Academy’s annual kudofest, Harry sent out a tweet with a side-by-side image of Grammy icon, Bonnie Raitt, next to DAYS’ Suzanne Rogers (Maggie).

Harry, who is known for her humor and wit in her tweets, expressed: “Has Bonnie Raitt been moonlighting as Maggie from Days of 0ur Lives for the past 20 years?

Jackée, who started her TV career on Another World as Lily Mason, and eventually played Sandra Clark on the sitcom 227, and various other signature roles, next received a tweet in response to hers from DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati.

The head scribe expressed: “No, Bonnie is obviously Maggie’s evil twin. The real question is, when is Sandra Clark going to come visit Salem?

Next, an excited Harry sent back: “Ha!!!! I would LOVE to play with the DOOL cast, Ron.”

On Monday, Carlivati tweeted a GIF of a game show moment with Jackee Family Feud style, that says “Name something you must have in order to live” The answer he tweeted: “A part on Days of our Lives?, Jackée Harry”

See the exchange below:

So, would you like to see Jackée in Salem? If so, what do you think would be a fun part for her to play? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

Courtesy/NBC

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.
