With news that Pop will now air same-day rebroadcast episodes of NBC's "Days of our Lives," along with the already airing rebroadcasts of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless," one can only wonder if the the network may have plans of airing rebroadcasts of ABC's "General Hospital" as well. Sadly, that's not the case.
In an interview with TMZ partner site tooFab, former "Days of our Lives" star Justin Gaston (ex-Ben Rogers) talks about playing both actor John Stamos and his alter-ego Jesse Katsopolis in the new Lifetime TV movie, "The Unauthorized Full House Story," airing Saturday, August 22 on the cable network. Gaston also reveals that he and his wife, actress Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman, "The Young and the Restless"), who he wed in 2012, are definitely open to having kids down the road.
Since departing "Days of our Lives" in 2007, actor Trevor Donovan (ex-Jeremy Horton) has gone on to add several roles onto his resume including appearing in episodes of The CW's "90210," ABC Family's "Melissa & Joey," and most recently starring in the History Channel mini-series, "Texas Rising." Now the actor has been cast as the lead in "The Man Who Wasn't," a potential TV series adaptation of the Thomas Caplan series of novels which follows the tales of former covert operative Ty Hunter, who unintentionally becomes the world's biggest movie star while maintaining a double life as a spy.
After a successful airing of "The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" earlier this year, Pop TV is proving it's the new home for daytime television in primetime. Starting Monday, August 24, NBC's "Days of our Lives" will be joining the network's evening lineup that already includes CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless."

In a posting on his Facebook page, hours after his final scenes as Sonny Kiriakis on NBC's "Days of our Lives" aired, actor Freddie Smith reflected on the roller coster ride he had playing the role and what it meant not just for him, but to the fans as well.
With new head writers on the horizon it was inevitable that "Days of our Lives" would also be getting a new teen scene, especially with what executive producer Ken Corday says to TV Insider's Michael Logan of something his late mother, Betty, used to share with him: "'You have to water the roots of the [Days of our Lives] tree with a new generation every 10 years or so' and that’s what we’ve done," notes Corday to Logan. "These are the children of the children of the children of the children, and they are vital to our future."
While no specific airdate has been set, "Days of our Lives" stars Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) and James Reynolds (Abe Carver) will be joining host Pat Sajak and Vanna White on an upcoming episode of "Wheel of Fortune" later this fall, it was announced Friday on the official Twitter page for the game show. Their appearance is just one of several expected to coincide with the 50th anniversary celebration of the daytime soap opera.
