Days of our Lives is an American soap opera, which has aired nearly every weekday since November 8, 1965[5] on the NBC network in the United States, and has since been syndicated to many countries around the world.[6][7][8] It also broadcasts on SOAPnet weeknights at 11PM ET/PT. The series was created by husband-and-wife team Ted Corday and Betty Corday along with Irna Phillips in 1964,[2] and many of the first stories were written by William J. Bell.

Overview
The Cordays and Bell combined the "soaps taking place in a hospital" idea with the tradition of centering a series on a family, by making the show about a family of doctors, including one who worked in a mental hospital.[9] Storylines in the show follow the lives of middle and upper-class professionals in Salem, a middle-America town, with the usual threads of love, marriage, divorce, and family life, plus the medical storylines and character studies of individuals with psychological problems.[10] Former executive producer Al Rabin took pride in the characters’ passion, saying that the characters were not shy about "sharing what’s in their gut."[11] Critics originally praised the show for its non-reliance on nostalgia (in contrast to shows such as As the World Turns) and its portrayal of "real American contemporary families."[12] By the 1970s, critics deemed Days to be the most daring daytime drama, leading the way in using themes other shows of the period would not dare touch, such as artificial insemination and interracial romance.[13] The January 12, 1976 cover of Time magazine featured Days of our Lives’s Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes, the first daytime actors to ever appear on its cover.[14][15][16] The Hayeses themselves were a couple whose onscreen and real-life romance (they met on the series in 1970 and married

in 1974) was widely covered by both the soap opera magazines and the mainstream press.[17] In the 1990s, the show branched out into supernatural storylines, which critics immediately panned, as it was seen as a departure from more realistic storylines for which the show had originally become known.[18][19] In 2006, when asked about his character, Jack Deveraux, "coming back from the dead"—for the third time—actor Matthew Ashford responded, "It is hard to play that because at a certain point it becomes too unreal...actors look at that and think, ’What is this — the Cartoon Network’?"[20] Days, in addition to receiving critical acclaim in print journalism, has won a number of awards, including a Daytime Emmy for Best Drama in 1978[21] and a Writers Guild of America, East Award for Best Drama in 2000.[22] Days actors have also won awards: Macdonald Carey (Dr. Tom Horton) won Best Actor in 1974[23] and 1975,[24] Susan Flannery (Laura Horton) won Best Actress in 1975,[24] Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Horton) and Leann Hunley (Anna DiMera) won Best Supporting Actress for respectively 1979[25] and 1986,[26] and Billy Warlock (Frankie Brady) won Best Younger Actor for 1988.[27] As with other soap operas, Days ratings have declined since the 1990s. In January 2007 it was suggested by NBC that the show "is unlikely to continue [on NBC] past 2009."[28] In November 2008, in an eleventhhour decision, it was announced the show had been renewed and now will be on the air through September 2010. The 18-month renewal was down from its previous renewal, which was for five years.[29]

two agree that her husband Mickey should never know. The secret, involving the true parentage of Michael Horton (a product of the rape) and Mickey’s subsequent health issues as a result of the revelation, spanned episodes from 1968 to 1975. The storyline was the first to bring the show to prominence, and put it near the top of the Nielsen daytime ratings.[30] Another love triangle, between lounge singer Doug Williams, Tom and Alice’s daughter Addie, and Addie’s own daughter, Julie, proved to be very popular around the same time. The storyline culminated in the death of Addie in 1974 and the marriage of Doug and Julie in 1976.[31] In the 1980s, the Brady and DiMera families were introduced, and their rivalry quickly cemented their places as core families in Salem beside the Hortons. Around the same time, with the help of head writers Sheri Anderson, Thom Racina and Leah Laiman, action/adventure storylines and supercouplings such as Bo and Hope, Shane and Kimberly and Patch and Kayla reinvigorated the show, previously focused primarily on the domestic troubles of the Hortons. Since the 1990s, with the introduction of writer James E. Reilly, Days of our Lives has moved from traditional plots to supernatural and science-fiction-themed stories, in conjunction with the rivalry of good vs. evil, in a Hatfield/McCoy feud style the Bradys verses the DiMeras. Under the tenure of Reilly, ratings first rose and then fell dramatically. Despite the introduction of new head writer Hogan Sheffer in 2006, ratings failed to revive, which led the show’s producers to hire a few past fan favorites to stop the ratings hemorrhage.[32]

Storyline
When Days of our Lives premiered in 1965, the show revolved around the tragedies and triumphs of the suburban Horton family. Over time, additional families were brought to the show to interact with the Hortons and serve as springboards for more dramatic storylines. Originally led by patriarch Dr. Tom Horton and his wife, homemaker Alice, the Hortons remain a prominent fixture in current continuity. One of the longest-running storylines involved the rape of Mickey Horton’s wife Laura by Mickey’s brother Bill. Laura confides in her father-in-law Dr. Tom, and the

Best-remembered stories
In addition to the love triangles of Bill/ Mickey/Laura and Doug/Julie/Addie, other memorable storylines include the 1968 story of amnesiac Tom Horton, Jr., who returns from the Korean War believing he is someone else and then proceeds to romance his younger sister Marie;[30] the twenty-year tragic love triangle when John Black steals Marlena Brady from her husband Roman;[30] the 1982 "Salem Strangler" (Jake Kositchek, who was nicknamed "Jake the Ripper"), who stalks and murders women;[30] the 1984 Gone with the Wind storyline in which Hope Williams and Bo Brady hide out on a

and Thaao Penghlis (Tony DiMera) had been brought back to Days, in an attempt to reach viewers who may have quit watching the series, although several returning cast members are no longer with the show.[32] More recent additions to the show include the returns of Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane) and Arianne Zuker (Nicole Walker) as well as longtime soap veterans Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas), Roscoe Born (Trent Robbins) and Kevin Dobson as a recasted Mickey Horton. These additions came around the same time as many cast exits, including Brandon Beemer (Shawn-Douglas Brady), Martha Madison (Belle Black), Julie Pinson (Billie Reed) and Frank Parker (Shawn Brady).

Executive producing and head writing team
The co-creator and original executive producer, Ted Corday, was only at the helm for eight months before dying of cancer in 1966. His widow, Betty, was named executive producer upon his death. She continued in that role, with the help of H. Wesley Kenney and Al Rabin as supervising producers, before she semi-retired in 1985. When Mrs. Corday semi-retired in 1985, and later died in 1987, her son, Ken, became executive producer and took over the full-time, day-to-day running of the show,[37] a title he still holds today. The series’ current co-executive producer is Gary Tomlin, who joined the series on September 17, 2008. The first long-term head writer, William J. Bell, started writing for Days in 1966 and continued until 1975, a few years after he had created his own successful soap, The Young and the Restless. He stayed with the show as a storyline consultant until 1978. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, many writing changes occurred. In the early 1980s, Margaret DePriest helped stabilize the show with her serial killer storyline. Later head writers, such as Sheri Anderson, Thom Racina and Leah Laiman, built on that stability and crafted storylines of their own, temporarily bringing up ratings. Many writing changes occurred after Laiman left the series in 1989 and would not become stable again until James E. Reilly started with the show in 1993. His tenure, which lasted for four-and-ahalf years, was credited with bringing ratings up to the second-place spot in the Nielsens.

Cast
See also: List of Days of our Lives characters See also: Minor characters of Days of our Lives When Days of our Lives debuted the cast consisted of seven main characters (Tom Horton, Alice Horton, Mickey Horton, Marie Horton, Julie Olson, Tony Merritt and Craig Merritt).[35] When the show expanded to onehour in April 1975, the cast increased to 27 actors. By the 25th anniversary in 1990, 40 actors appeared on the show in contract or recurring roles,[36] which is the approximate number of actors the show has used since then. Of all the current cast members, only Frances Reid, who plays Alice Horton, has been on contract with Days of our Lives since it began, appearing since the very first episode in 1965. Original cast member John Clarke, who played Mickey Horton, left the series in 2004. Suzanne Rogers, who plays Maggie Horton has been on the show since 1973, and Susan Seaforth Hayes has played Julie Olsen Williams since 1968 with a few breaks in between. In recent years, Days has hired back many former cast members. In fact, twenty of the current contract cast members have been with the show, off-and-on, since at least 1999. Since 2005, cast members from the 1980s, such as Christie Clark (Carrie Brady), Stephen Nichols (Steve Johnson), Austin Peck (Austin Reed), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla Brady), Joseph Mascolo (Stefano DiMera),

Other writers who succeeded him, such as Sally Sussman Morina and Tom Langan, failed to keep the ratings success, and another writer turnover continued until Reilly returned to the series in 2003. Five-time Daytime Emmy winner Hogan Sheffer was named head writer with great fanfare in October 2006, but lasted less than 16 months with the show, with his last episode airing in January 2008. Current head writer Dena Higley’s first episode aired on April 23, 2008.[38] Her co-head writer is Christopher Whitesell.

them the 4 p.m./3 slot, which many (if not most) stations had been preempting for years anyway.[39] By 1986, ABC and CBS followed suit, under the intense pressure of lucrative (and cheap) syndicated programming offered to affiliates. By the early 1980s, Days had displaced Another World as NBC’s highest-rated soap. However, the entire NBC soap lineup was in ratings trouble. In fact, by 1982, all of its shows were rated above only one ABC soap (The Edge of Night) and below all four CBS soaps. The "supercouple" era of the 1980s, however, helped bring about a ratings revival, and the 1983–1984 season saw Days experience a surge in ratings. It held onto its strong numbers for most of the 80s, only to decline again by 1990, eventually falling back into eighth place. In the mid-1990s, however, the show experienced a resurgence in popularity and the show reached number two in the ratings, where it remained for several years before experiencing another ratings decline beginning in 1999, the year that Days became NBC’s longest-running daytime program (upon the cancellation of AW). Throughout the 2000s, Days and all the other remaining network daytime serials have witnessed a steady erosion of viewers, mainly due to vastly altered viewing habits induced by cable networks and alternative genres such as reality and talk shows on minor network affiliates. On January 17, 2007, NBC Universal Television president Jeff Zucker remarked that Days of our Lives would not be renewed and would most likely not "continue past 2009."[28] With the 2007 cancellation of Passions by NBC, Days is now NBC’s last remaining traditional daytime program (excepting The Today Show) on its mid-day schedule. After the January announcement, the Nielsen ratings for Days dropped to 1.9 million households[40] before stabilizing in June near 2.4 million households.[41] In an April 2007 interview with Soap Opera Digest, executive producer Ken Corday remarked of the ratings decline of the previous months, "If I don’t pay attention to the ratings and what the viewers are saying, I’m an ostrich. I have not seen a decline in the ratings on the show this precipitous — ever. I’ve never seen this much of a percentage decline."[42] But Days has not been able to recover the viewers it has lost. On September 10, 2007, Days moved to Passions’ 2 p.m. weekday timeslot in some areas,

Ratings and scheduling history
See also: List of US daytime soap opera ratings During its first three years on the air, Days of our Lives was near the bottom of the daytime Nielsen ratings, and close to cancellation. However, its ascent was rapid; as the 1969 TV season ended, Days became a successful part of NBC’s attempt to dethrone CBS. By 1973 the show, pitted against CBS’ Guiding Light and ABC’s The Newlywed Game at 2 p.m.(EST)/1 p.m.(CST),[4] had matched the first-place ratings of As The World Turns and sister NBC serial Another World. NBC capitalized on this success with the decision to expand to one hour on April 21, 1975. This expansion had followed the lead of AW, which became TV’s first-ever hour-long soap on January 6, three-and-a-half months earlier. Further, Days’ new starting time of 1:30/ 12:30[4] finally solved a scheduling problem that began in 1968 when NBC lost the game Let’s Make a Deal to ABC, and in its wake, eight different shows were placed into the slot, with only one, Three on a Match, lasting more than nine months. However, this first golden period for NBC daytime proved to be short-lived, as Days’ ratings began to decline in 1977. Much of the decline was due to ABC’s expansion of its popular soap All My Children to a full hour, the last half of which overlapped with the first half of Days. By January 1979, the network, in a mode of desperation more than anything else, decided to jump headlong against AMC and moved the show ahead to the same 1 p.m./12 Noon time slot.[4] In exchange to its affiliates for taking away the old half-hour access slot at 1/Noon, NBC gave

but most affiliates continue to broadcast the show at its 1 p.m. hour.[43] Days of our Lives has finished the fourth quarter of 2008 tied for #4 among network daytime series in the women 18-49 demographic, while ranking #1 outright in the valuable women 18-34 category, according to in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research. Days (1.4 rating, 8 share among women 18-49, 1.2/7 among women 18-34) equaled its ratings for the year-ago quarter among women 18-49 and women 18-34 and is up 5 percent in total viewers (with 2.8 million persons versus 2.7 million). “Days” also increased its audiences among working women 18-49 and females 18-24, 12-24 and 12-17 versus the year-ago quarter.

Days of our Lives
Days of our Lives and moved over to SABC 3 where the show began 20-minutes earlier at 4:55P.M. CAT. Initially ratings dropped from 3.8 million viewers on average to around 1.7million viewers. However the show is still the second highest rated show for SABC 3, which has a lower audience rating than SABC 1. Repeats of Days of our Lives the following day on SABC 2 garners almost 1 million viewers bringing the total amount of viewer to about 2.8 million viewers on average that watch a Days of our Lives episode. Days is currently 2 and a half years behind US broadcast, but is expected to fall a few months behind in the foreseeable future due to regular pre-emptions during cricket season. Days also airs in a number of countries across Europe, premiering in Turkey on October 8, 1990, France on July 29, 1991 and since July 1998 after the end of Loving diffusion on France 2 , Germany on September 6, 1993, Sweden in September 1997 (currently four years behind USA), Finland on August 11, 2003, and Hungary on June 14, 2004. Channel 5 aired episodes of Days in the United Kingdom from March 2000 until April 2001, eventually pulling it off the air; network executives deemed its audience of 200,000 viewers as too low a figure.[8] Days had previously aired in the UK and Ireland on the Sky Soap channel between 1994 and 1999; episodes were three years behind U.S. telecasts. From September 3, 2007, UK viewers will be able to watch Days on the femaleskewed entertainment channel Zone Romantica. In Italy Days aired for only three months in 1985 on Rete A; in 1992 Italia 7 started to air new episodes, five years behind U.S. telecasts. In 1993, after 260 episodes, the show was cancelled. Days of our Lives also airs in the Middle East and the Arab World Since 2003 in the cannel MBC2 and then moved to MBC4 as a channel of American TV shows and the show is 5 years behind the USA. Belize’s Tropical Vision Limited features Days as an afternoon staple. Currently it airs at 3:00 p.m. UTC-6 (Central Time), though it previously aired as early as 1:00 p.m. or as late as 5:30 p.m. as a lead in to the news.

External distribution
See also: Screening of daytime US soap operas in Australia According to Variety, Days is the most widely-distributed soap opera in the United States, with episodes not just broadcast via NBC, but also via cable (SOAPnet), and as of June 2007, episodes are offered via iTunes.[44] Days also has an international audience. It started broadcasting locally in Australia in 1968,[6] later moving to the Nine Network. Over time, Days ended up airing at a delay of nearly five years behind the United States due to cricket pre-emptions in the summer, so in 2004, Nine aired a special titled Days of our Lives: A New Day, which summarized four years of storyline in one hour, in an attempt to catch up to more current telecasts.[6] This speed-up caused mixed feelings as viewers missed many vital storylines and it landed right in the middle of the Melaswen storyline. Now, episodes are ten months behind the United States. New Zealand has aired Days nearly as long, debuting on Television New Zealand by 1975 at the latest,[7][45] and currently running approximately five years and 3 months behind the United States on the TV ONE channel. In South Africa the soap began airing on SABC 1 being a ratings hit and being the second highest international show on South African often battling with The Bold and the Beautiful for first or second spot. However in March 2006, due to ICASA (Independent Communications Authority South Africa) broadcasting regulations, SABC 1 cancelled

Days of our Lives

November 8, 1965 - March 31, 1972

Almost completely unmodified since the show’s debut in 1965, the titles show an hourglass, as sand slowly trickles to the bottom against the backdrop of a partly cloudy black and blue sky.[47] In 1966, the focus moved from the entire hourglass to the bottom, with the sand trickling away as the theme played.

April 3, 1972 September 28, 1984

In 1972, the current title lettering was introduced,[47] a condensed version of the Times New Roman typeface in yellow coloring (before then, the show’s title was in Latin Bold font). The title card would also say "Copyright 1972 by Corday Productions, Inc." While the copyright was only for the title sequence, viewers would become confused in later years, as the 1972 copyright notice stayed on the title sequence until 1984.

No marked difference came in 1984’s titles revision, save for the removal of the copyright notice from the bottom of the screen.

October 1, 1984 - June 18, 1993 In 1993, a computerized version of the visual was made, with completely redone sound effects and rearranged music. In this version the hourglass, now slowly spinning clockwise, starts focus at the bottom-half, overlooking the dawn. As the sun rises, the focus is zoomed out, and the audience sees the entire hourglass and the show’s title "flourishes" onto the screen as the music flourishes.[47] While the entire hourglass is revealed, the clouds in the sky change formations. The current version of this theme is about 30 seconds in length, however the full version lasts around 3½ minutes. A version of this opening exists that does not include MacDonald Carey’s voiceover.[48] A shortened version of this open debuted in 1995, when the show’s time period was shortened due to news coverage on NBC of the O.J. Simpson trial (and later for the Martha Stewart trial in 2004). The shortened version is still used when episodes run over the allotted time, usually during sweeps periods. are the days of our lives." After Carey’s passing, the producers—out of respect for Carey’s family—decided not to use the second part of the opening tagline.

Theme song and opening title sequences
The title sequence of Days of our Lives has changed several times since the show’s debut, but always maintained hourglass imagery and trademark voiceover, "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." Beginning in 1966, the voice has been that of Macdonald Carey (1913–1994), who played Dr. Tom Horton from the show’s opening until the actor’s death from lung cancer.[46] From 1966 to 1994, the voice would also intone, "This is Macdonald Carey, and these

visuals, and in 2004, with an orchestral arrangement that was only used in eight episodes, at which time the theme was reverted back to the 1993 arrangement, and is the one currently used. From its debut in 1965 until March 1966, announcer Ed Prentiss spoke the words now made famous by Macdonald Carey.[47] Since April 1966, Macdonald Carey has intoned the epigram "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." From 1966 to 1994, he would add "This is Macdonald Carey, and these are the days of our lives." After Carey’s death in 1994, the decision was made to remove the second part of the opening, out of respect for Carey and his family.[47]

death scene" in which his character was stabbed while performing surgery.[57] In an additional link between Days of our Lives and Friends, John Aniston, the actor who portrays the character Victor Kiriakis on Days is the real life father of Jennifer Aniston, who portrayed Rachel on Friends. The show has also been referenced on The Simpsons episode, Pygmoelian, when Moe Szyslak gets plastic surgery on his face becoming a very handsome man. He then gets a part playing Dr. Tad Winslow, on a show called "It never ends", a parody of Days of our Lives. "It never ends" plays on the show’s title sequence; "like the cleaning of a house, it never ends". The eye patch worn by Dr. Tad Winslow refers to the character Steve Johnson or "Patch" from Days of our Lives. The Show is also referenced in The American Sitcom "Scrubs" as being the favorite show of Dr Cox. The Show is also referenced in the American sitcom "The Nanny" in the episode "Take Back Your Mink" . The Nanny watches "Days" and her employer Mr Sheffield (played by Charles Shaughnessy who also played the character of "Shane" on "Days") joins her and makes fun of Shane’s British accent.

Cultural references
Days of our Lives was satirized on the hit sitcom Friends when one of the principals, Joey Tribbiani (played by Matt LeBlanc), got a job as Dr. Drake Ramoray on the show,[50] despite the fact that Joey lived in New York and Days of our Lives is shot in California.[50] All storylines shown on Friends (with guest shots by actual Days of our Lives stars) were fictional and did not represent what was really going on in the soap opera itself. Joey’s fictional stint on the show ended when he angered its writers and his character was killed after falling down an elevator shaft.[51] Later, his character was brought back to life in a further spoof on the show (no fewer than thirty-six characters have been "brought back" from the dead on Days).[52] Joey was brought back as a man with a brain transplant. His new brain was from the character Jessica Lockhart, played by Susan Sarandon. Lockhart died from a horseback riding injury.[53] The Lockharts are also the last names of Bonnie, Mimi and Patrick on Days, but the Jessica character is not a relation to any of the three. Alison Sweeney, who plays Sami Brady, appeared on Friends as Jessica Ashley who stars with Joey on his version of Days.[54] Additional Friends episodes feature Kristian Alfonso as Hope Brady.[55] and Roark Critchlow as Mike Horton[56] In an episode where Joey hosts a soap opera party on the roof, Matthew Ashford and Kyle Lowder each make an appearance, Ashford even giving Rachel his number. In the spinoff sitcom Joey, Joey was nominated for "best

Fans
The show has had many high-profile fans. In 1976, TIME magazine reported that thenJustice of the Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall, would call a recess around the 1 p.m. hour to watch Days of our Lives.[58] Actress Julia Roberts admitted at the 2002 People’s Choice Awards that she was a fan of Days, and asked to be seated near the cast at that event as well as other award shows. In 2004, during the show’s Melaswen storyline, Roberts’ interest was considered notable enough that Entertainment Weekly quoted her saying that "the show has gotten a little wacko."[59] A 1998 TIME article mentioned that Monica Lewinsky, the former White House aide who admitted to having an "inappropriate relationship" with then-president Bill Clinton, was a passionate fan of Days of our Lives, so much so that she wrote a poem about the series in her high school yearbook. The article compared her whirlwind experiences in the White House to a story on Days.[60] Best-selling horror novelist Brian Keene has said in interviews with The New York Times, Rue Morgue and elsewhere that
