For the foreseeable future it appears that Days of our Lives is not on the chopping block and going anywhere! This vote of confidence came yesterday at the current TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter Press Tour!
According to TV Line, NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt expressed that Days of our Lives would remain on the air beyond its current contract cycle, which expires in September.
Greenblatt started, “I think Days is going to stick around. I don’t know that I’m at liberty to say that officially yet, but it’s not going anywhere.”
This would seem good news for DAYS fans, whose favorite soap has been last in the ratings of all four of the remaining network soap operas, and has been hitting recent record lows in the key female 18-49 demo. Many had been concerned that if DAYS did not perk up in the ratings rather quickly it could be canceled.
So soapers, are you happy to hear the news that DAYS should be sticking around? What are your thoughts to now improve the show so it has staying power? Let us know!
