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.

  • days in my life being aggravated?

    Good one on the writers - they had us all going thinking that Clyde did the killings. Still don't like him. Gee, why don't they have Ben kill Abjay in a fit of rage instead of Paige (a bit better actres than Abjay). Ughhh, Zander and Theresa? How much more can we take!! Can we just have Zander kill Theresa off!! Don't you think it's rather strange that stupid Eve and Clyde happen to have some listening device that seems to last forever without charging? Is everyone in Salem walking around with these contraptions? What kind of a cheesy life are these people leading? Why don't we put Eve and Clyde together and they get married happily ever after and GO AWAY FOR PERMANENT!!! 8/27

    The episode two days ago was way boring and a waste of my time watching, with Julie and Hope waxing on and on about old stuff that we already know. Today's episode wasn't any better with Clyde. PLEASE have Stefano or Victor kill him off already!! Abjay's flipflopping is working on my nerves - her acting is pathetic, in fact the whole family is pathetic to watch! Gripe, gripe, that's all we've been doing lately - writer's having a block? Time to tune in to another channel! 8/21

    What's with all the 'babies' theme. First Teresa and her baby - nothing great to watch, now with AbJay? First they have her with the same theme of being pregnant from EJ now with Chad? Who's next? Going through the family, how about Stephano? Lol - and why not? They have JJ and Eve doing it. Might be quite funny and disgusting to watch AbJay and Stephano going at it. Might make my day!! (Ugh) Have they ever heard of birth control? Teresa with the baby is bad enough to watch now we've got to watch stupid AbJay going through all the stupid emotions from her own stupidity. I bet the writers will have Clyde go and alter the Dna results, blah, blah, etc. Don't like Stephano, but hey, just have Clyde killed off by him. Kate with Rafe it was ehh! Now Kate with Clyde - that is the worst pairing!! ENOUGH of sickening Will as well, I've lost the 'will' to watch - LOTS of fastforwarding! 7/23

    As usual, like before when their lives are in danger - Nicole and Eric are blabbing away instead of trying to b look for another way out BEFORE Zander finds them?? Really stupid!! Will's acting is UGGHHHHH!!!! Annoying just to watch him!! Just have Sonny and Paul together and have Will kill himself - and take Clyde with him!! Enough of pathetic AbJay as well. In fact ... time for the whole of Days of our Lives to end. All the main good actors are gone! 06/19

    Boy, do those writers know how to write a stupid story line! Don't tell me two strong men cannot even push Marlena out of the window!??? The stupid sugary 'ga-ga over the baby' Teresa is making me nauseous!! She's all bitchy and nasty and all of a sudden she's all sugar and spice? Too sickening and boring to watch. Called it right on Floozy Abjay!! Swinging right back to Chad - real nymphomaniac! Boring as heck too. Along comes a new guy - guess who will be there - seen one, seen all!! Same old story!! A 05/16

    Ugghhhh, seriously could someone just get rid of Will - have Clyde Weston kill him off!!! I don't like Clyde Weston, but lately he's looking way better than Will!! Lucas and Adrienne??? Double yuck!!! I can't even watch that! Floozy Abby (can't even act) and Ben - really, really boring! Hope and Aiden is starting to get a bit sickening - when they were against each other in the beginning with that little bit of interest in each other was way more fun to watch. They just seem to be killing off the wrong people! 04/30

    Oh, cry me a river Will!! So annoying! You did the deed, now you do the time! I hope Sonny leaves you for good! Why are Brady and Eric always being suckered by women? 03/06

    GOOD JOB writers bringing stupid Clyde Weston back from the dead!! JUST like they did with Nick! What happened? Run out of story line? I thought it might be too good to be true that Clyde would be dead permanently. Can't stand him, thought I had seen the last of him - lots of fastwarding!! Some more JJ and Eve - ewwww, how much more can a person take watching it!!! Ugghhhh!! 02/15

    Come on!!!! JJ and Eve??!!! EEWWWW!! Baarrrrffff!!!! More than up to my neck sick of stupid bug eyed Theresa!!! Now they endow her with a baby to drag out her time??? Fassst forward!! Will Horton (new one) is bad enough, Pathetic Paige is also 'eh", Jordan walks around with a stupid frown/squint on her face like she cannot see; Jordan's father is terrible as well. New Chad also bad; home wrecker Abigail as stated by another person looks like a deer struck by headlights. Anne, thank goodness - has toned down a bit and is a tad bit more tolerable. Still don't like her! When all these characters come on - I fast foward!! Great job writers in making us all on the road to not watching anymore by bringing on all the terrible actors/actresses!! 11/06

    Yesterday's episode was one big joke!! C'mon?? Seriously, would Stefano even marry someone like that? What with all those floozies hanging around him looking nothing like his so called "wife"!!????? That stupid tone and fake talking is one big joke!! I didn't even bother watching that episode and did something else!! I also agree with the other person that let's hope Kristen takes Teresa down. Also the replaced 'Chad' has left me flabbergasted! Seriously don't like any of the new actors! No connection whatsoever. And with EJ calling his fans f**g idiots - well he has one fan less together with his floozie AbJay!! 9/30

    Can we be DONE with Theresa already!!! She's an annoying and terrible actress!! She's seriously making me thinking twice about watching the show!! What's with alcohol being in the house when there are two alcoholics Maggie and Brady living there? Just doesn't make any sense! 9/03

    ENOUGH already of stupid Theresa!!!! Just make her have an overdose and kill herself this time. Now we have to watch someone who is just as wacky as her - her sister!!!???? One of them is bad enough - get a move on with the story - so sick of watching Theresa and her sister's whiny and malicious deviousness. They are not even good actresses - why are they being shown such a lot? Give Brady a chance! Good looking, good guy - but he has been made to look like an idiot all the way. Have a new woman come in and change his life. 07/07

    REALLY!!!???? What are the writers thinking!! They have Nick shot and they showed him eyes wide staring obviously dead. Then they have him staggering into the square??????? I hope he STAYS DEAD this time!! i can't stand Stefano but I'll take him anytime over NICK!!!! Time to bow out and take Gabi and Theresa and Ann with you! Hopefully good riddance to all of them! Hope the writers are not going to drag out the story about his death and all the stupid sobbing and screaming from Julie. I'm so sick of seeing Nick and hearing the name!! Please no dragged out flashbacks of Nick as well ... enough is enough!! 05/12

    How about the writers get Liam (cannot stand him as well), Theresa, Anne, Nick and Gabi form some sort of morbid attachment to each other and then kill each other off so we don't have to suffer watching them any more!!! Let's hope they don't decide to bring in Mr Greetings as a main actor ever!! Definitely more fast forwarding then watching lately. I'd rate the show a minus 5 if I could!!!! 04/14

    Way to go making Sierra a grasping little girl!!! Never did like her acting! Already Nick is putting me off more than ever. I've just been fast forwarding a lot lately. Time get out before my blood pressure gets any higher and the poison gets to my brains!! Whatever there is left of it after watching all this trash that is going on!!!

    Ej and scheming slut Abigail ... fast forward!!! Crazed Nick and even crazier Gabi .. fast foward!!! Nick and Abigail ... fast forward.

    Why the heck is Nick back on the scene??!!!!! I REALLY cannot stand his acting! I am already gritting my teeth watching Theresa and EJ and SEX-STARVED HOME WRECKER Nympho-Abigail. The writer's don't seem to know what they are doing!! They make Abigail a holier than thou and honest to goodness girl and then they make her do something like this? Which is it?? Good job giving all the bad actors main scenes. AARRGGHHHHH!!! Down one more rating!!!!


    SERIOUSLY... EJ and Abigail!!????? EWWWWWW!!!!! I suppose Abigail will also be like a stalker like Gabi was. Saw more love scenes between Abs and EJ - it is seriously putting me off watching any further. And COME ON!!! Nicole and Eric is almost being killed, they are sitting around yakking? Write a more decent story line!! Also agree with the other person ... the person replacing Will not the same, and also for goodness sake - time to write off Ann and Theresa!!!! Don't tell me that they are going to let Stefano get the best of someone again! What are they doing, killing off all the good actors and letting the irritating and bad actors get the main scenes??? 1/10/2014
