    Rumors that DAYS OF OUR LIVES may be in trouble at NBC due to their disastrous 2014 year, are beginning to swirl.

    Yikes! Despite my misgivings about Higley/Griffith and my disappointment that Tomlin/Whitesell are gone, I sure hope this change helps improve the show’s ratings.  Cancellation rumors do seem a little premature, though, since the show is renewed through September of next year.  I have to say, also, with all factors related to the show itself being equal, you’d have to expect DAYS to be in fourth place anyway.  CBS has two soaps to help feed into one another, and ABC, despite having only one soap, has a fortified daytime lineup that the networks supports and promotes fairly heavily.  NBC has DAYS just airing among news, syndicated talk shows and random local programming, and I can’t even recall the last time I saw a commercial for DAYS on the air.  I’m not sure how much return NBC can reasonably expect given their investment.  I realize the network is not going to care about any of that, but it should.

    Calls for cancellation are premature for sure.  Days has been better in the last few years than it was for the ten years prior, and 2013, which was not all that long ago, was it’s crown jewel.  A few slow months does not justify considering cancellation.  Of course that doesn’t mean it won’t happen…

    DAYS isnt going anywhere. Renewed through September 2016.

    However, rehiring the god-awful Dena Higley is not very promising. Yes, she is asbolutely terrible. Already fired TWICE by Sony, made absolute zero sense to rehire her. Hopefully Josh Griffith, who actually isnt half-bad when he’s on his game, will keep her in line. Hopefully.

    That article doesn’t mean anything. The headline is used as “click-bait” to get as many page views as possible. And you guys fell for it.

    I actually felt that Days was the best of the four soaps in 2014. I loved the show all the way up until the end of October – 10 months as the best – and then I did feel a lull set in after Sami left, that lasted for almost 3 months, but the show is great right now, the best of the four, for the past 3 weeks or so.

    I don’t follow the ratings too closely anymore – did Days lose any viewers when E.J. and Sami left?

    It would be tragic if Days were cancelled. Looks like it will stay on the air until September 2016 and hopefully beyond.

    I preferred east coast soaps and every single one of them has been cancelled. Days is the closest in spirit to east coast soaps – more family oriented and relationship-driven (at least for the past four years this has been true. It was NOT true during the “sci-fi” years of James Reilly’s headwriting).

    Guys the quality of the show doesn’t mean squat. The ratings have been consistently down, sometimes by as much as 30% in the demographic every week. The network isn’t promoting it and with the time they tape in advance they’ll probably announce the cancellation months before the end date. It has been uniformly trending down almost catastrophically. Since NBC has basically thrown in the towel on all daytime not named Today, they’ll probably move quick to either try a game/talk show or give this hour to the affiliates.
