Am I hearing right? Days has fired Thaao Penghlis? (Tony DiMera) After last weeks John/Marlena fiasco,and now another Days vet Thaao Penghlis ( who was never given a chance to have his own storyline). I couldn't quite decide if I wanted to continue to watch Days. Well, I finally decided to say goodbye to Days & cancelled my DVR setting untill such time that John & Marlena returns or Days start writing better storylines....which at this juncture may not happen I know many viewers around the internet last weekend (Jan 23-25) said they wouldn't watch Days anymore, yet many will continue to watch untill its inevitable cancellation. So I guess many are split.
I'm curious how Days did this week (Jan 26-30). Is it me
folks, or does it still bother you about Days firings and what's happened to a great soap? I respect the opinion of many viewers who continue to watch. Days fans are devoutly loyal to the core. Yet I am unable to watch what Days has become. Even though I am one viewer amongst millions of Days fans, I wanted my voice to be heard so I wrote Jeff Zucker, CEO of NBC and let my voice be heard. I know it won't help in the grand scheme of things, but I felt better letting him know how I felt as an NBC viewer.
I wonder, could not a compromise have been reached? 1) I'm sure many fans would be willing to settle watching 30 minutes of Days w/its veteran actors intact vs. 60 minutes of the crap we are now watching. 2) If Corday is looking to rid himself of DOOL, couldn't he search for another network such as soapnet or oxygen network? 3) reduction of execs salaries And excessive spending ...If NBC believes it's #1 in primetime programming, wouldn't you assume that stronger efforts would be made to keep daytime programming such as Days on the air (especially with the strong viewership that DOOL has.) The same viewers who watch daytime programs also watch their primetime programs...Something TPTB needs to consider
