  1. IN LOVING MEMORY CHRISTOPHER LEWIS 1971-2016 "Days of Our Lives" Assistant Editor Christopher Lewis, the Daytime Emmy-winning assistant editor of "Days of Our Lives" for the last 13 years, passed away on Friday, December 16, 2016 in Sherman Oaks, California. He was 44. Lewis had suffered a seizure in November. Shortly after graduating high school in 1990, Lewis joined his mother, Nancy, as an assistant to the producers at "Days of Our Lives." In 2004, he became the assistant editor of "Days", winning a Daytime Emmy for his work in 2015. In memory of his love for books and libraries, the Christopher Lewis Memorial Library has been founded at the Ovation School for the Performing Arts. He is survived by his wife, Stacey, and 8-year-old twin daughters, Lauren and Sadie.
  2. You would think most of the soaps would be 100. Maybe the column they used on the paper could only fit two #s in that column. If not, then I guess there was one rogue affiliate for each of ABC, CBS, NBC which did not carry the shows back then. I only have some random reports from that time frame in late 80s/early 90s. Would be fun to see how it continued on in the past 20+ years.
  3. I was posting this on another board and thought people here find might it an interesting read too. (Just realized I posted in the wrong thread...didn't mean to post in Spoiler Section...sorry!) A LOOK BACK AT CLEARANCE RATES... Someone mentioned "clearance rates" tonight (the percentage of clearance each daytime network show has per all of their affiliates), so I remembered I had a few charts that listed them from a long time ago. Here's a look back at each show's clearance rate for several years. I had never studied these stats before, so they are quite interesting! B&B slowly rises from 93 percent coverage in 1989 to 96 coverage in 1993, while Another World drops from 99 to 96 and Santa Barbara drops from 99 to 94. Also, this time frame is when NBC started to slowly give back its network time to local affiliates. They gave the 10-11AM time slot back to local affiliates between 1990 and 1992, and the 11-1130AM time slot in the fall of 1992. CLEARANCE RATES FOR NETWORK AFFILIATES...SEPTEMBER 1989 & FEBRUARY 1990... [LOCAL TIME, 10-11AM] Home I (ABC, 11AM)...88...82 Home II (ABC, 1130AM)...94...89 Perfect Strangers (ABC, 12PM)...68...65 Loving (ABC, 1230PM)...88...SAME All My Children (ABC, 1PM)...99...SAME One Life to Live (ABC, 2PM)...99...SAME General Hospital (ABC, 3PM)...99...SAME Family Feud (CBS, 10AM)...84.....80 Wheel of Fortune (CBS, 1030AM)...78...SAME Price Is Right I (CBS, 11AM)...98...SAME Price Is Right II (CBS, 1130AM)...98...SAME [LOCAL TIME, 12-1230PM] Young and Restless (CBS, 1230PM)...99...SAME Bold and Beautiful (CBS, 130PM)...93...95 As the World Turns (CBS, 2PM)...99...SAME Guiding Light (CBS, 3PM)...99...SAME Scrabble (NBC, 10AM)...81...75 Classic Concentration (NBC, 1030AM)...82...79 Golden Girls (NBC, 11AM)...97...95 Win, Lose or Draw (Sept)/227 (Feb.)

  4. I do all sorts of teasers in all sorts of ways. I did the Warning Alert to Salem last year for many months before Larry, Clyde, Xander and Orpheus were announced. I was happy to see that Xander and Orpheus' returns were not spoiled until the NBC promo aired that day. It was fun finally being able to talk about them after so many months not being able to! When Jade Harlow was coming on, I posted I think around 9 photos of former Passions actresses as possibilities. Christopher Sean's impending arrival I posted the theme for Hawaii Five 0. And I posted a video of singer Vanessa Williams as Valerie Grant's casting was about to be announced. So, I like to change things up each time to keep it interesting for myself. In this case, since we're so far out from May, I'm just doing a generic (more boring-type) statement that's announcing someone will be returning., which I modeled after the long-running "Stuff We Know But Can't Tell You" column that appears each week in Soap Opera Digest. Sorry if it's not everyone's cup of tea. I've been doing teasers about Days for almost 20 years now, so it's not like I'm a rookie. When I was a "rookie" back in 1999, I posted the entire farewell script of Carrie and Mike around 2-3 weeks ahead of it airing (this is back when the show was only taping 3-4 weeks ahead of time). But, I quickly learned you don't spill major details like that way far in advance. If I had kept that up, I'd probably no longer have any sources left!
  5. Of course. That's why I said "If that's the case." And Cassadine, you can always check out my FB page for all my latest posts. I only post a small fraction of stuff on the message boards. There's a lot of other posts I make on a daily basis on my FB page.
  6. Didn't know these weren't allowed. If that's the case, I guess I won't post these teasers to this site then.
  7. WELCOME BACK..."DAYS" FANS SET TO SEE ANOTHER FAMILIAR FACE LATER THIS YEAR...PART OF MAY SWEEPS STORYLINE Expect to see yet another familiar face making a return later this year. The storyline is part of May sweeps.

  12. CORDAY PRODUCTIONS RESPONDS TO VICTORIA ROWELL'S LAWSUIT...FILES SUMMARY JUDGMENT MOTION THAT SAYS SHE WAS "NOT THE RIGHT ACTRESS" FOR ROLE OF MELINDA TRASK "Corday Productions has filed a summary judgment motion that asserts the decision not to cast [Victoria] Rowell had nothing to do with her advocacy. "Rather, Plaintiff – who has years of daytime drama experience and her own fan base – was not the right actress to play Melinda Trask, a minor, one-note character who appeared in only 20 episodes of DOOL," Corday's lawyers write. The motion relies on testimony from the casting director, Marnie Saitta, who felt the Melinda Trask character didn't have a lot of depth and so wouldn't be appropriate for Rowell. As for the soap star's advocacy work, Saitta apparently viewed it as a positive." "Sony Pictures has also filed a motion for summary judgment on the basis that it is not a producer of Days of Our Lives and wasn't involved with the casting of the Melinda Trask role."
