Days of our Lives



With just 10 days to go before it goes dark for good, one piece of several puzzles surrounding the end of SOAPnet was where some of the shows currently airing on the cable network would land once it said goodbye. In a press release, Pivot announced earlier this week that it has landed the rebroadcast airing rights to "Veronica Mars," which joined the SOAPnet lineup in March 2012. In announcing its agreement with Warner Bros. Television, producers of the series, the network also announced that it has picked up rerun rights to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," which starred former "All My Children" actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall Hart), as well. "Mars" starred Kristen Bell in the title role.
The quick switcheroo from Chandler Massey to Guy Wilson in the role of “Days of our Lives’” Will Horton is about to commence: As previously reported, Wilson’s first day as Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) son will take place the first week in January, and an exact day has finally be revealed! Also revealed is when you'll get your last glimpse at Massey in Salem.

Sean Douglas (ex-Vargas, "Days of our Lives") announced that he's booked a role on TV Land's "The Exes." The actor will portray Doug in a future episode of the series, which stars Kristen Johnston, Donald Faison, Wayne Knight and David Alan Basche.
In its newest issue, Soap Opera Digest shed some light on Mark Collier's new role on NBC's "Days of our Lives." The actor, who debuts on the Wednesday, December 18 episode, is portraying Liam, who Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans) sets up on a date with Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves). "I knew his first name was Liam, but not much more than that. He went to high school in Salem," shares the actor who began filming in August. Ironically, with Collier now on board, the "DAYS" cast now includes the first two actors who portrayed "As The World Turns'" Mike Kasnoff (Collier played the character from 2002-2007; Shawn Christian [Daniel Jonas] originated the role in 1994).

Each week Soap Opera Network publishes ratings reports that break down the highs and lows of the four remaining daytime soap operas - "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" - in total viewers and the all important key women sales demos (Women 18-34, Women 18-49 and Women 25-54). Today, with both ABC and CBS noting the success of "GH" and "Y&R," respectively, TheWrap has published a piece entitled, "If Soaps Are ‘Dead,’ Why Are Their Audiences Growing?" In its report, the publication notes that each of the soaps are up season-to-date in all key ratings categories. Meanwhile, some of the replacements for the canceled ABC versions of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," specifically talk shows, have all "come and gone like, um, sands through the hourglass."
Like "As The World Turns," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "Guiding Light" before it, producers of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" have announced a new partnership with Pan Macmillan and its digital-first imprint, Momentum, in which the publishing company will release a series of novellas surrounding several characters from "B&B."
While hints of a possible return to "General Hospital" began on his Twitter page last week, where he referred to numerous Ports in the world (Portlandia, Port Hueneme, Port of Los Angeles, Port of Long Beach), an ABC representative confirms to Soap Opera Network that actor Ryan Carnes will be reprising his role as Lucas Jones, the adopted son of Bobbie (Jacklyn Zeman) and Tony Jones (Brad Maule), on the ABC Daytime drama series. "Like a ship lost in the night at sea, wondering where my next port will be...," Carnes tweeted on Wednesday, December 4.
