sharon and Adam please agin and agin . Love the Shadam years

Will watch for it.

Sounds like he’s playing himself hahaha. Good luck to him.

Justin is one of the better actors on Y&R, they were lucky to get him, and I figured sooner or later, he’d move on to something better. I hope this works out for him!

hopefully y n r can keep him and make it work so he can do both shows!…if the brass can work around a nobody character on the show like dylan, surely adam s character can be accomadated!

With Dan Fogelman producing it, it will be a hit..
All his series are doing very well..
Y&R might lose JH , ya betcha !

“All his series are doing very well…” Have you seen the disastrous ratings for season 2 of “Galavant”? LOL.

It’s only a pilot, it is has a lot way to go before it might be picked up as a series– and even if does it might be 2018 before it airs and then whether it will be picked up for more episodes after the initial order if it makes it that far is a big question mark– so I think we can enjoy JH on Y&R for a long while yet.

Sure hope Alan’s bad habits don’t run off on him! LOL Good Luck Justin!

Well. it doesn’t surprise me that Justin Hartley would eventually move on from Y&R. If the show is picked up and is shot in NYC, there would be little likelihood of his staying on the soap. Good luck to him and the show. Y&R will have to find another Adam, just like they’ve done with the character of Billy Abbott.

I love Justin Hartley’s acting and I never doubted for a minute he would get into movies. If he leaves it will be a sad day for Y & R but I want to see Justin get ahead. If I knew Tom Cruise I would call him myself and have him watch Justin and I know Justin would be the next J.Renner in Tom’s MI movies. Congratulations Justin great work you deserve moving on.

Well, I felt Adam and Chelsey held Y & R together for the past year. However, don’t get angry, it never seemed to me that Adam was a great actor; good, but needing a bit more help. His speech pattern is so quick, continuously, that the possibility of being the new Brad Pitt did not seem to be something that was going to happen. Hey, for him, I hope it is.

I did feel that the producer had better watch out or they were going to lose Justin. You all seem to know a lot more than I.

It felt that in the last programs Adam has looked tired and not as attractive. Perhaps two jobs took a toll.

Last week the program seemed very slow; perhaps transitioning. I still can’t understand how Victor seems to know who the father of Sage’s baby is. I missed a couple of days.

I like Hartley very much. The preview of new Billy was pleasing, but after seeing a few episodes I am not sure. So many changes at once can make it difficult for viewers.

Best to all. Reading comments each weekend is fun for me.

Love Justin Hartley. Great actor and so handsome. I hope he does well, but I sure hope he doesn’t leave Y+R. Love watching him. I only hope they will keep Adam and Chelsea together. Great chemistry.

On General Hospital, Elizabeth played Meg Baldwin who had a young son, Scott (Kin Shriner) from a previous relationship and who married Lee Baldwin (Peter Hansen). The role was originated by Patricia Breslin from 1965-1969. Breslin was temporarily replaced by Jan Shepherd for three weeks in the summer of 1967. MacRae took over the part from Breslin full time from 1969-70 and again from 1972-73.

In story, the character of Meg suffered a nervous breakdown and Lee had her committed to an institution. In 1971, Meg was released and came home, but suffered from severe hypertension. In 1973, Dr Lesley Webber was assigned to her case. Meg became jealous of Lesley and began to think that she was trying to get to have sex with Lee. During an argument with Lee, Meg died of a stroke and soon after Lee adopted Scott.

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
