Show Summary

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives...

For over forty years, those words, spoken by the late Macdonald Carey, have introduced and underscored one of daytime drama's rare mainstays. NBC's Days of our Lives, will celebrate its 48th anniversary on November 8, 2013. It first premiered as a half-hour drama in 1965 and expanded to an hour ten years later. Today, it remains a consistent favorite among viewers of daytime television serials. It is the powerhouse of NBC's soap opera lineup and demonstrates its staying power in television history.

In its lifetime years, Days of our Lives has garnered numerous Emmy Awards, Soap Opera Digest Awards and People's Choice Awards. The show's success derives from its consistent commitment to excellence in writing and storytelling, supported by an ensemble of performers, and an uncanny knack for anticipating viewer interests. From demonic possessions and baby switches to exciting teen stories and love triangles, Days of our Lives remains a perennial favorite among viewers of all ages.

Filmed in Burbank, California, Days of our Lives is set in the fictitious midwestern town of Salem. The core families are the Hortons and the Bradys, and the multi-layered storylines involve elements of romance, adventure, mystery, comedy and drama. Original cast member Frances Reid continues to star as Alice Horton.

Days of our Lives is produced by Corday Productions Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television. Executive producer, Ken Corday, is following in the tradition of his parents, Betty and Ted Corday, who co-created Days of our Lives and helmed the series for many years.

  • Revamp Day's!

    Could someone please knock on the doors over at the "Day's set" to see if anyone's there?

    Whomever is in charge of overseeing "days of our lives" what is going on? Honestly, if the "execs" have no interests in keeping/ and or making this soap a success, ~then end the darn thing~!

    I don't have a problem with anyone's storyline in particular, I have a problem with the "lack of vision and or interests" "creating and keeping" this old vessel afloat. In other words, Days deserves better than what you have given your audience. There are many veteran actors that would be awesome on this soap, however, you're employing young nobody's "not all are bad"... but ' ' ' trying to "caterer to a younger audience that [are not] tuning in, and never will" and Yet, you have a bigger following of years gone by that a begging to see Day's back to it's glory. Why is that so hard for the "soap genre" to figure out?

    you have an oyster in hands if you would just stop beating a "young dead horse". "Revamp Days", do not let another soap die only to be replaced with another boring talk show, cooking show, game show, reality no show or what ever fluff show can fill the time slot. ~Daytime whatever shows are dead~ Please re-think this post; breathe new life into Day's.

    The sky's the limit if you can find the right Writer's? and Producers who are excited about doing their job's. Day's could be great again, if you want it to be? So many "good veteran actor's" just waiting to work again. Invest in your soap execs, and you will get your fans It's up to you. The younger crowd is a waste of your time, the older fan base has never left.

    Just stating the obvious. Many complaints for Day's. Save it or lose it!moreless

  • ok with gay

    hey - i'm ok with the gay relationships. but the promiscuous cheating gay portrayal not so much. i realize this is a soap opera, but really, enough with the sleazy depiction of gay men.
  • Full Support

    I find these comments Im reading disturbing. Yes I agree the show is getting a little boring after Alisson left but in no way are the gay story lines too much. They are exactly how they should be. Finally we are seing normal making out and sexual scenes like "straights". "Straight America" as charlottemoore3958 says is OLD news. Go to Russia charlotte!
  • Gays of our Lives

    I've been a fan of Days for over 30 years, and never once did I comment against your episodes. The problem is that now I will give you my advice....

    I have nothing against gays, i really don't BUT it's a little too much now. It's disturbing the (making out and sexual) scenes. they just kiss (peck) and that's it????

    Get more men and women (straight) for the ones that aren't coupled up yet, Like:

    Kayla,Kate and Eric and Rafe back some actors!!!! Do something more interesting please, I sometimes get bored watching and most of the time I fast foward the sscenes with the Gay scenes so basically I watch only a small part of the episode :(

    Please, Please,PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!! I'm begging you. Do something ASAP!!!!moreless
