Oooh, Duffy as Bill? I'd take that. Though I liked John Martin in the role. I can't believe they didn't keep him around and I wish they'd use Laura a lot more.

 

Marie should have been used in Eric's priest story, and she should have been brought back in 2006 when Nick was introduced ...

 

So many characters that could/should be on the canvas. Like we had nearly a decade of St. Daniel Jonas but that should of been Mike on the canvas.

 

Pretty sure it's Fairchild though. I'll take her. I wouldn't mind Mills but I think Mills was like Joan and not that fond of the daytime grind, even though I think she more or less liked her time at GH.

 

I agree about a name and pulling in ratings. The soaps are past that point. The ratings are what they are. They'll fluctuate and probably go down but to see significant rises? I doubt it. For anyone. Fans that were lost aren't going to flock to see Morgan Fairchild. Or even Alison Sweeney. She may bump them a tad but it won't be significant. We're past that point. Even primetime ratings are pitiful compared to what they used to be. DVR usage tells the story.

Maree Cheatham would be a great addition to the recurring cast as Sister Marie.

 

"Maggie, I still don't understand how you could go from my brother Mickey to that KIRIAKIS man...."

 

" Jennifer, Lucas, your sons were both with that JEZEBEL  that killed my Nicky---there's forgive and forget, but COME ON!!!!  Nicky loved Will and JJ..."

For real. It's crazy looking at the primetime numbers nowadays. For instance, ABC's American Crime doesn't even pull in 2 million viewers live on a Sunday night. Compare that to just 6 years ago when Brothers & Sisters was cancelled for a season that averaged 8 million and had a series low of 5.7 million (though those B&S numbers might include DVR+3 or +7 day tallying). Still, it's insane to see such small numbers on network TV. ABC is the pits, FOX only has Empire (which has lost half its viewership), and CW is... the CW.

I hope it's Morgan. I love watching her face now. There's always something exciting and new about it. 

 

It's just too bad DAYS doesn't shellac Vaseline over their lenses like GH does for their high-definition. It makes viewers (well, me) feel like our vision's going bad, but at least it hides the fine lines on the actors.

It's what the Big 4 deserve. they put shows on and give them no time to build an audience. people have gotten tired of it and moved on.

Doesn't help either that people get longevity in streaming shows than they do network shows. Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc. draw more attraction than network shows b/c they aren't so quick to pull the plug on shows and it's cheaper to just watch streaming shows. 

 

That aside, whether it is Donna or Morgan, do people think they'll be brought on as a character from the past or a new character? I think at this stage in the game, DAYS needs to steer from new characters b/c they rarely resonate with the audience.

It is Morgan Fairchild. It has already been spoiled. She has been brought in for ratings and is short term. She is probably no longer taping since Days shoots so far ahead. She will air in June and is Tripp's grandmother and Ava's mother.

    • It's only "valuable" if it's proven to be accurate.  (And no, SONY hasn't put any Y&R "out there"; in fact, old episodes of Y&R, uploaded by fans who have recordings, are frequently removed from internet channels due to "copyright infringement". )  
    • As much as I love Lois and would be thrilled to have a scene with Brenda, Sonny, and Lois again, I don’t really wish this show on her at this point.  Lois is wholly a Claire Labine character.  Guza couldn’t write for her, and I don’t think anyone that is a soap HW currently understands how to write for a character like Lois.  And I’m all for her being moved forward character wise, but again, she had a certain set of ethics, personality traits, etc that just do not work well on todays soaps. it would end up as a caricature, and I’m tired of that happening to beloved characters and actors.

    • Hmm, okay. I must have misremembered. I thought Robyn was just hanging out with John Wayne Bobbitt & some others of his group. But, they were an item, huh? (My fave, too.) One of my oldest friends has just posted in my FB group to me that she & her husband know Robyn & her husband & shared good things about them. They live in PA & work there in professional theatre & Robyn worked there, too. Robyn was from their town. She talked about her husband, the golf pro, and how devoted he has been to Robyn. And, of course, about her last 2 yrs & how valiantly she fought but that she did not lose her great sense of humor! Apparently she had a little dog who was as devoted to Robyn as she to it. I found out last week that Paul Michael Valley has been diagnosed with lung cancer. And, I had been waiting to hear from Anna Stuart & she did not disappoint. She is so good with words & with feelings! And, they stayed so close. (I did not realize that AW was wooing Anna to come back while she was in H'wood.) I'm still in a "not okay" place about Anne. I'm a F'ANNE. But I'm trying to latch onto every positive tidbit I can find. My favorite articles besides Anna's now are the "stubborn incandescence" & the Roger Ebert website "review of career and life". I'm loving learning more & celebrating more Anne esoterica from her not knowing who Lindsey Buckingham was when she dated him (SO Anne!) to it being a serendipitous snowstorm that we have to thank for her being "found"! I have just seen 2 brand new URLs for the "Call Me Crazy" audiobook. I have it & it's wonderful that it's Anne's voice. If anyone wants the links, I'll copy/paste them. I was in a group of AW fans that were in touch with VW online & on the phone & she & CK were guardians & mentors to the Maggies & we did not like Jodi O'Keefe not one bit & they tried to get us to be good! She was just a long-legged model-wannabe with 1 trick - remain perfectly motionless draped on a sofa.
