Description:

 

"Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives." For over one-third of a century, those words have introduced and underscored one of daytime drama's rare mainstays. NBC's "Days of our Lives," which turned 42 this past November, first premiered as a half-hour drama in 1965 and expanded to an hour 10 years later. Today, it remains a consistent favorite among viewers of daytime television serials. On January 19th NBC announced that Days of Our Lives is unlikely to continue past 2009. 

In its 42 years, "Days of our Lives" has garnered numerous Emmy Awards and nominations, as well as multiple "Soap Opera Digest" and "People's Choice" Awards. The show's success derives from its consistent commitment to excellence in writing and storytelling - supported by a diverse ensemble of performers - and an uncanny knack for anticipating viewer interests. From demonic possessions and serial killers to genre traditions such as baby switches, amnesia and classic love triangles, "Days of our Lives" remains a perennial favorite among viewers of all ages.

"Days of our Lives" is set in the fictitious Midwestern town of Salem. The core families are the Hortons and 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. Ed Scott is also executive producer. Hogan Sheffer is the headwriter."

It is hard for me to see Days taken off the air. Grandma Horton has been my rock! I'm 57 and have watched Days since it first started. My grandma would call me in sick at school to watch Days with her. We watch Julie and Doug get married and Hope grow up. When I moved 3000 miles away from home; my holidays were not as lonely because I had Grandma and Grandpa Horton with me. RIP in peace Grandma Horton I truly loved you. I use to pray that on Christmas my ornament with my name would be put on the Horton tree.. I too can not imagine life with out days..
I have watched Days since I have been alive my mother started watching when she was 12 years old; when it first started, she is now 53 and I am 30. I just can't imigine life without it.
I have watched Days since for 27 years and am now in my 30's. I can't imagine not watching it daily. I record it every day. Save Days of our Lives......
I have watched Days my whole life, since I was 5 years old....with my mom and my gramma. I know every character and every storyline. It would be a real sadness to see it go.

Please do not cancel Days. I have been watching since I was a little girl. It's like having another family.
Please don't cancel Days. It gives us the light fun drama that helps us forget about our own dramas
You can't cancel Days. It gives us the light fun drama that helps us forget our own dramas.
Every day we a losing something we enjoy. Show after show cancelled so that we can have more 'garbage' on that we don't want to watch. Some of us have watched Day's are whole lives. We know and love the inhabitants of Salem and they are a part of our daily lives. Surely there are enough of us to keep it on!
Please please keep days of our lives on air please I love it so much
Keep "Days" on the air please!!!
With today's economic problems is so nice to get lost in Salem and figure out who Sami really loves. I too have watched days since it first aired when I was at college in nursing school. I record it everyday and I get lost and relax with days. As a matter of fact my son played a small role on days back when Lexi was trying to have a baby. He was Rolph's assistant in the lab. Please keep days!!!!!!
Please do not cancel, I have watched since I was a child with my mom. It ia an iconic soap, and the ony one I watch.
Unless the writing gets better, there is no reason to keep this show on the air. The storylines are ridiculous. Doesn't anyone on that show work for a living? The only thing they seem to be good at is making babies, kidnapping babies, having paternity tests to find out who the real father is of all these babies, getting married, divorced, married, divorced, and on and on and on. It's silly.
PLEASE DO NOT END THE SHOW
PLEASE SAVE DAYS. I HAVE BEEN WATCHING SINCE 1965. THERE WAS A PERIOD WHEN I WORKED THAT I STOPPED BUT AS SOON AS I RETIRED I WAS HOOKED AGAIN. I JUST COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW IT HAD CHANGED. WHAT HAPPENED. THINGS BEGAN TO HAPPEN THAT WERE JUST IMPOSSIBLE AND THERE WERE TIMES I JUST STOPPED WATCHING FOR A WHILE AS IT MADE ME NERVOUS. DO NOT CARRY THINGS ON FOREVER. LIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW...EJ AND SAMI. WHY? PEOPLE GET TIRED OF WAITING AND STOP WATCHING. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK AGAIN...AFTER ALL, MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO WATCH ARE LOYAL AND HAVE WATCHED FROM THE BEGINNING. DO NOT CANCEL MY FAVORITE TIME OF DAY. DIANE BATTISTA

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't cancel my favorite show. I am a devoted Days viewer. I record it everyday and as soon as I get home that is what I do, unwind and watch days. I don't know what I would do without the Sammi and EJ drama!!!
I've been a fan of DOOL for 31 years. I have watched faithfully (aside from working) for that time. Now with a DVR, I can record it every day and watch it when I'm home. Please don't cancel this show. I intend to watch it for as long as it airs.
I as well as all my friends have watched this show for years...it's the highlight of our day. We feel so sad at the thought of it being cancelled. Please keep it on the air forever!
please keep days on the air. and put sami and rafe back together!!
I have been watching this show since I can remember. My grandma has been watching this show since the first episode. We are big DOOL fans! I remember watching this show as a child hiding behind the couch because my mom said I was too young. Please don't cancel Days!
DAYS is the best! Please don't cancel it! C. Clark
I've watched this soap my whole life, I'm 37 years old. I wouldn't know what to do with myself if it wasn't on.these characters are a apart of my everyday and family. please keep it going I would hate to lay them to rest.It would be devastating to me and my family if we didn't have this soap to watch together everyday.
Many share my sentiments. I am a professional who loves to unwind at the end of the day with Days. Please keep it coming. Theresa
