A. These characters are dull and boring.

B. These actors acting is mostly weak.

C. These characters completely dominate the focus of DAYS and its storylines.

D. DAYS have lost more viewers than any other soap since last year.

Now, if you connect A to B to C to D, you might be able to see a connection!

And THEN you remember how these cycles on DAYS always works. Corday creates a diversion by temorarily bringing back some vets and giving them airtime. But as time goes by, we will eventually down the road find ourselves back in a similar situation as to where we were earlier this year.

Drake Hogestyn

Deidre Hall

Stephen Nichols

Mary Beth Evans

Thaao Penghlis

Joseph Mascolo

A. All of these actors contracts expire next year.

B. Corday has confirmed he wants the show to be driven by younger characters.

C. DAYS is gone from NBC in 2009 and all Network Executives think these actors are too old and expensive.

As I said. Just connect the dots.

I know how negative and unpleasant this sounds. But Im just trying to be realistic.

The fact that any of those characters had screentime so far this year should a CRIMINAL offense.

Interesting I didn't realize Bumiller played the character in the flashbacks. He's done some small but important roles on other soaps, like GL, Passions, and Y&R.

Oh I'd say she's been a lot more episodes than that, it's just we only see her side or back, but she's always in the Brady Pub background.

I do my best to look for her in any Brady Pub scene since 1993 (and when I was doing some 1992 verification, I rewatched some Sept-Dec 1992 episodes and found many more with her (before I realized she'd be a consistent presence), so I added that to her total episode count. I don't think she's been around since January 18, her one appearance this year. They've had various other waitresses this year in non-speaking roles, they even opened a scene recently zoomed in on another blonde waitress. If I've missed any episodes with Lisa Williams, let me know, and I'll add them to her count. Same goes for Jacee Jule (Sandra, previously Java Cafe Waitress Patty) who hasn't seemed to pop up at all this year. She's there all the time anyway as a production assistant and Frances Reid's stand-in, so perhaps since Frances hasn't been on (and they haven't used Chez Rouge or Hudson Street Diner much), that's why she's been missing all year.

I didn't count Leann that day. They specifically moved her first airdate up in the magazines from June 20 to June 21, so I believe it was a body/voiceover double. I listed her as Anna Body Double in my chart for June 20. I compared it to Judi Evans debut as Bonnie (in just a voiceover capacity) when she first "appeared" just as Bonnie's voice. All the media stated that was her first episode, even though Judi wasn't seen, just heard. After doing these episode counts, now having over 20 years of them, I have to make decisions sometimes, and I've done the best I can with over 20 years worth of info. I'm only human, so I'm sure somewhere along the line there's a few mistakes (perhaps when zooming through the 1987-1990 episodes to get a character count, I missed someone, or when I did the charts for 1987-1990 on the computer, perhaps I placed an X next to someone's name instead someone else, but overall I hope that my counts are at least 99% accurate for the contract characters as well as all the main principals.

The only connection I see is that, even now with the DiMera's, the vets and improved writing, DOOL seems intent on putting very, very boring characters and/or storylines front center. For months it was Willow, the Island snooze-fest, the ignorant demonization of EJ; and poor Steve and Kayla. More recently it's been the new (boo!) early twenty-something characters; chaotic Chelsea and Nick, slurping Sami and Lucas, and dragging out the Belle, Philip and Shawn story with little to no progress.

I'm loving the DiMera's, Bo and Hope, Steve, EJ, Doug and Julie - and EJ and Sami - when we get to see them together that is. But it's hard getting through the other storylines to watch the good stuff. If I wasn't invested in the show, I probably wouldn't watch it: I mean if I just turned it on and saw Jeremy and company, or heard Sami and Lucas, well I'd turn it right back off.

All in all, however, the show IS better than it was as recently as early April (October to early April should just have been someone's nightmare -- I know it felt like one to me!)

Question: I saw it listed that J. Mascolo is signed till June 2009 - Is that information not correct??

I don't know. They are being so secretive about the contracts these days, I can barely keep track of who is officially on contract or not, with all the mistakes in the credits recently. I know in one interview I read it said Joe was signed for two years, but then a week a later he was quoted as basically saying it's only for a short time, presumably for 6 months or so, so I'll stick with the 2009 date for now. Kristian's status is still up in the air. Even her official site says her contract expired last month, so they have not updated her status yet either, so I've just been moving her status up month by month as each month passes. Jason

I also agree that Nick is on way too much. He's very irritating at times and should only be a supporting character. I wouldn't mind if DAYS axed him to tell you the truth. Also DAYS drastically needs to re-cast Jeremy Horton.\

That said, June's been the best month of DAYS in quite awhile IMHO. Glad to see the vets get their airtime up, hope it continues. More Bo, Hope, Marlena, John, Tony, Stefano, Roman, Doug, Julie & more Caroline, Shawn too. I also want more of Maggie and where's Victor?

I will agree they are using Nick way too much. I like him interacting with vets but still.

However, I don't care how much they use Ali. She is a vet and the show's future. She is extremely popular and is one of the reasons why Days didn't drop even further during their slide. Peter Reckell was on just as much last year and no one complained about him. Therefore, no one should complain about Ali either.

Hopefully, by the end of the year. we see the vets more prominent in the top ten. Reckell has made it in there with MBE, SN, AS, and BD and I am hoping KA and DH make it in there as well. That would make for a great top 10 at the end of the year and one that the show should always try to model.
