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.

  • ok with gay

    2.5
    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.

    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!

    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
  • GAY BOY, GAY GIRL

    I AM SO SICK OF THIS GAY BOY THING. WHAT YOU NEED NOW IS A COUPLE OF DYKES GOING AT IT AND YOU WOULDN'T;T HAVE TO COME UP WITH ANY-KIND OF STORY LINE. OOPS, WAIT, THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE NOW, NO STORY LINE. HOPE YOU HAVE YOUR GRAVE DUG, YOU'RE GONNA NEED IT.
  • Over it!!!

    1.0
    I have watched this show since I was a kid with my grandmother. I am now nearly 43 years old and I am OVER IT!! I knew things would be different when Allison left the show but I feel like the writers are trying so hard to cater to all audiences but going overboard in the gay department. I am all for everyone having a part in the story line but this Will, Sonny and the new ex-baseball player are driving me INSANE. I am thankful that I TIVO this show because I scan through it and decide if there is anything worth looking at. More times than not I end up scanning and deleting. I have been a lifelong watcher but I am ready to cancel my scheduled recording and move on. The things that I always admired about DOOL's is gone. It feels like the emphasis is on the gay marriage and everyone else is miserable. You don't even have any good villains anymore. Long story short, your story lines stink like last weeks garbage.moreless
