  2. I think he had posted a few Days summaries from that from the 1975 time frame, just pre-Soap Digest time frame, which I linked to. But that was a long time ago. I only had those few links to his images, nothing else sorry!
  3. No, I don't have him on the cast list for anything, so if he's been on, that would most likely mean a U/5, or there were episodes in the 1990's where months would go by without any credits, so it might be for a principal role from the 90s.
  4. TRIO MAKE DEBUT AS TOP OF MONTHLY RANKINGS: Lamon Archey (Eli), Brandon Barash (Jake) and Sal Stowers (Lani) tied for the monthly lead in episode rankings with Deidre Hall (Marlena) at 13 episodes each. This is the first time Archey, Barash and Stowers have led the monthly rankings. They become the 159th, 160th and 161st actors to lead the "Days" monthly rankings in the show's 54-year history.

  5. I haven't heard a firm date, and that was even before the horrible numbers coming in this week for LA County. I doubt any of the other TV shows will be resuming soon as many things are already starting to close back down and there's supposed to be more updates from California announcing stricter rules coming out tomorrow.
  6. SALEM TODAY... Thanks to a "Days" fan for passing along these photos of "Days" Studios 2 & 4, normally filled with over a dozen sets, but now totally empty and ready for a deep cleaning.
  7. Actually they added an additional week of 9/20, but it's ending on 10/11. So "Days" may be preempted for the semifinals on 10/8 and 10/9. However that could also become moot because "Days" will have just run out of episodes by around that point too if they can't resume production. And by the way the numbers are looking this week, it's a possibility.
  8. They have around 75 episodes left, through around second week of October (the episodes moved up 3 weeks due to the French Open/Olympics postponements).
  9. "DAYS" PRODUCTION SHUTDOWN HITS 100 DAYS ON SUNDAY... Sunday, June 21 will mark the 100th day since "Days of Our Lives" shut down production on March 13. Here's a look at some photos of the Burbank Studios parking lot from today, taken by "Days" fan Doug of Burbank: Longest Production Shutdowns in "Days" history (as of 6/21/20): 3/14/20-Present...100 days+ 11/28/19-2/2/20...67 days 11/19/16-1/15/17...58 days 2/27/16-4/3/16...37 days
  10. I've known them to do maybe scenes from 5 or 6 episodes in a day. Never known them to do 15 episodes in a day. In any event, whatever is taped averages out to about 1.5 episodes of material per day. That's why they average 7.5 episodes a week.
  11. NBC DAYTIME 1964 PRESS RELEASES... When I was doing some research recently, I found a batch of 1964 NBC press releases, with the debuts of "Another World" and the original "Jeopardy!" So, although they aren't about "Days", thought fans would still enjoy seeing them!
  12. Update on Judi Evans... Via Howie Simon on Facebook: Since I’ve received numerous DMs on my FB page .... I spoke to Judi on Sunday and she is STILL in the hospital - 23 days now and counting. She contracted COVID-19 while there and she had what is known as the COVID blood clots in her legs and she nearly had both legs amputated on two different occasions. She had mild symptoms - fever, aches, a cough and the blood clots. On top of everything, when she went into surgery on one of her legs, they forgot to numb the leg and cut into her leg while she was fully conscience with no numbing of the area! However speaking to her on Sunday, she was in good spirits and back to Judi “humor” despite all these spiraling turn of events. She has said she appreciates all the prayers for her and they’ve helped her mentally, physically and spiritually! She just wants to continue to test negative on COVID19 before she can go home and get the rest she so needs!!! https://www.facebook.com/howie.simon/posts/10158590954488586
  13. IN LOVING MEMORY TED POLMANSKI FEBRUARY 8, 1955-AUGUST 11, 2019 "Days" Lighting Director, 1993-2019 Ted Polmanski, the long-time "Days of Our Lives" lighting director, passed away on August 11, 2019. I was just informed of his death, so that is why this is just being posted now. Polmanski was just nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award, his 18th nomination for his work on "Days." He was still working at "Days" up until his death. Due to the advanced taping schedule at "Days", his last episode aired on March 31, 2020. Ted (Tadeusz Czeslaw) Chester Polmanski, 64, of Agoura Hills, California, passed away on August 11, 2019. Born on February 8, 1955, to Anna & Tadeusz, Ted C. Polmanski grew up in Chicago, graduated from the Gordon Tech High School and studied at Columbia College in Chicago, IL. Although he moved away to pursue his career, Ted always kept Midwest roots with him. Polmanski began his NBC Staff career at 22, working for NBC Sports, travelling to games and assuming various jobs in production, where he honed his talent and passion for TV Lighting. He transitioned to working on Variety shows, Specials, Sit-Coms and ultimately Day Time Soap Operas, which became his forte, including Santa Barbara (1984-1993) where he won two Emmy's for Lighting Direction. For the remainder of his career, he worked on Days of Our Lives, receiving additional Emmy nods for a total of 27 nominations.Whether you knew him as Ted, Teddy, Shecky, or Dad – he loved and was loved by many. Ted was a proud husband, father, cousin, brother-in-law, uncle, mentor and friend. He was quite the baseball devotee with allegiances to his LA Dodgers and his home team, Chicago Cubs. He was a brilliant photographer, never without at least one camera, and longtime, respected lighting director. His photos are still up on instagram.com/tpolmanski/ and will remain there to be shared. Survivors include his wife & partner of almost 33 years, Sue; and his daughter, Hayley (Matt). Ted is also lovingly remembered by his cousin, Casey (Marianne), sisters-in-law Phyl & Marcy, brother-in-law Larry, nephews, niece, cousins, great-nephew as well as an extraordinary circle of friends and colleagues.

  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BILL HAYES! Bill Hayes (Doug) is celebrating his 95th birthday today! The happiest of birthdays, Bill! Here's a look back at this very funny, great scene that he and Frances Reid (Alice) did in Episode # 2402, which aired 45 years ago, on June 9, 1975. This scene opened the episode, and was a very long 13 pages!! # 2402 Doug's Place (New Day) Doug and Ben are rehearsing an upbeat number, "You'd Be So Easy to Love." The hammers of the workmen remodeling are heard in the background. As the song progresses, it's almost as if their hammers are beating out a not-so-rhythmetic accompaniment. They stop a moment. The workmen's hammers fall silent. Doug shrugs and they start over on their tune. The hammering picks up again, growing in volume. Doug says :Maybe we should try it their way, with a Latin beat." Doug stops singing and the hammering stops again. Ben jokes "I bet they're not even union!" Doug says "Sure they are....That's their second ten-minute break in three minutes!" Ben: "Maybe we could all work out an arrangement of The Anvil Chorus.'" Alice enters and watches Doug and Ben try to play louder than the workmen, to no avail. They give up. Ben exits. Doug turns and sees Alice. Doug: "Alice, I didn't hear you come in." Alice (yelling over the noise): "I'm not surprised." Doug says he can't get any work done. "From now on, I won't sing, just do soft shoe routines. And Ben's going to take up juggling." Alice asks if that noise will continue once Doug's Place opens for business. Doug: "We're supposed to have a schedule worked out, but I'm learning carpenters are more temperamental than chefs. Wait 'til you see the mess back there, all to remodel one teeny-weeny bitty apartment." Alice sits at the bar. Doug pours them each a coffee. Doug asks Alice if she knows where he can get bedroom furniture for a room approximately six feet by three. Alice: "Good heavens! Whose room is that?" Doug: "Mine, the master bedroom...We needed the space so whomever I hired to take care of Hope will have a room of her own." Alice: "Have you considered a very small person?" Doug: "I'm at the point where I'd consider Genghis Khan, if he were good with children." Alice says she knows Doug is desperate, but the agency has had no one to send yet. Doug asks if Tom would consider renting HER out. Alice: "I doubt it. I think he'd be suspicious of the fringe benefits." Doug says he'll put an ad in the newspaper: "Wanted: Housekeeper for bachelor and little girl." Doug (more soberly)" "How about: Wanted: Housekeeper to MOTHER bachelor and little girl." Alice: "That's a little ambiguous." Doug: "You're right, and I wouldn't want a matronly type who was TOO motherly." Doug (reads with a flourish): "Hip bachelor needs hip motherly type to take care of little girl in newly-remodeled pad." "That should draw some attention." Alice: "I imagine it would." Doug asks if he should throw in "catered meals and nightly entertainment." Doug starts to get carried away. Alice suggests a more sedate approach. Doug: "We don't want any ladies in tennis shoes applying." Alice: "We don't." Doug: "We can't have someone living here who isn't with it, Alice!" You don't want your granddaughter raised by a square, do you?" Doug now thinks up this for the ad: "Casual living but lots of love required." Alice: "Oh, Doug." Doug: "What I'm looking for is someone like you, who swings enough to give Hope a sunny, happy home." Doug says the ad will need more work, but he guesses it will get results. He puts the pad down and says he'll call the paper later. Doug: "Of course it'd be a lot easier if you'd take the job,,,and we hired a babysitter for Tom!" Alice (pretending tartly): "Not with THAT ad you won't, Doug Williams. If there's going to be lots of love required at MY house, I'll handle it!" Doug :"Right on, Mrs. H. You ARE with it, see?" Alice: "A swinger, eh?" (Shakes her head) You find out something new about yourself every day." Doug grins, then asks if Alice has talked Julie this morning. Alice says she has not, but she's concerned about her. Doug asks why. Alice says she's afraid things haven't worked out too well for her and David. Doug (who knows the score): "It takes time, Alice." Alice says Julie isn't handling the situation with Brooke too well. Doug (carefully): "It's not easy for her to accept the fact David is so grown up ,and so hung up on a girl." Alice says that Julie fighting it isn't going to help. "I remember how I resisted when my boys started getting serious about girls." Doug asks what she did. Alice: "Keep my opinions to myself. Tom saw to that. He pointed out young people are inclined to be stubborn, especially boys, and if you make it plain you don't approve of something, that makes it all the more attractive to them. Doug: "Your husband's a wise man, Mrs. Horton." Alice: "I know. Unfortunately, Julie hasn't learned this when it comes to handling David."
  15. I checked my Passions stats. So you can take away the "maybe." Mary Pat Gleason (Bad Witch # 2) 8 episodes in 2007
  16. Fun Fact: Tracey was never on contract with the show, but she was one of many characters written off in 1980.
  17. This is my ratings archive page, if you have yet to see it, for anyone interested! The household ratings for pretty much every week from 1989 covering through when SON started listing them on a complete basis. I scanned in every Soap Weekly chart a few years back and posted them. http://www.jason47.com/days/nielsensweekly.html
  18. Ron said they stopped writing as of New Year's Eve, which is Episode # 14000. They were around the 13950-13955 time frame when production shut down. So they have around 45+ scripts waiting to be taped. As of now, Days is coming close to just being 4 months ahead. They seem to be moving up the 13 sports preemption episodes, so that cuts an extra 3 weeks off of how far ahead they were and moved the last episode taped from airing around October 20ish to October 1ish. It's already moved Freddie Smith and Chandler Massey's last episode up from September 18 to August 31. Unless NBC finally decides to throw in some repeats.

  21. KAYLA & JACK EACH HIT 2000 EPISODES IN THE PAST 10 DAYS! Thanks to a fan at Daytime Royalty for pointing out this fun fact: The characters of Kayla and Jack each appeared in their 2000th episode in the past 10 days. Kayla's 2000th episode aired May 20, while Jack's 2000th episode aired a week later on May 27. Here are the appearance stats, by actor, for each character: Kayla Johnson (Mary Beth Evans-1846/Catherine Mary Stewart-156/Rhonda Aldrich-4) 2006 Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford-1475/Mark Valley-354/Steve Wilder-96/James Acheson-43/Joseph Adams-33) 2000
  22. Who knew my love of Days & stats in 1990 would lead to this 30 years later! The most fun was when the show contacted me to find out an episode that Kathie Lee Gifford was in so they could play a clip of her on Today for the 50th anniversary in 2015. Since they knew most of my records were already computerized, it would be quicker to check with me than them having to comb through their paper records from the 1970's. When I started this back in 1990, never dreamed I'd be helping two of the longest-running shows on the air find an Episode # to air as a clip!

  24. Yeah, she refused to go on contract for 2 years. In an interview she did once, I think she said it was even longer until the 1970's, but from the production paperwork, it proves she went on contract around the end of 1968, once she was about to give birth to Mike. I guess they finally locked her once she gave birth to a Horton and they wanted to make sure she stuck around. But she immediately left the show in 1975 once they had to have everyone sign a new contract because the show was expanding to an hour. I do remember posting a letter about Bill using too many people and that he'd have to cut back due to the budget. There was also that interesting note where he wanted to bring Marie back in late 1969 but he was told that could not happen because that would activate Marie Cheatham's contract again somehow. So he had to wait until 1970 to bring Marie back so she could stay recurring and not on a guaranteed contract. I guess that's how they enticed Mac to join a soap in 1965, by guaranteeing him a lot of episodes.
