More battles within in the DiMera and Kiriakis families? Check out our poll and vote on what you’d like to see.

    Why is EJ able to be a lawyer, when he has done criminal acts and should be disbarred? Melanie should make a quck exit and take all the newbies with her! Marlena needs to stay on the show. DAYS needs to return to better writing and actors. I have watched it from day1.

  2. From FROM DOROTHY

    Malena and John needs to stay,Melanie needs to go,Philip,Kate, Lucas why are they still on????????????

  3. From Kathy

    Bet Nicole loses the baby but still pretends to be pregnant to keep EJ around. I see a Kristen/John story all over again. I don’t care as long as EJ ends up with Sami in the end.

  4. From Karen

    I like Melanie. I felt sorry for her at the police station. Nick is crazy. I don’t won’t Nicole to lose the baby. I don’t really like her and EJ together. But don’t let her lose the baby. That would just be very sad. Malena and John can go. Kate needs to die. Lucas and Philip need to find someone new.

  5. From Alta

    I’m only watching until Deidre Hall leaves. Therefore, it doesn’t really matter to me what the incompetent Corday has planned.
    I resent how shamelessly he has used Deidre to promote this show and his own personal wealth over the years and then resorts to treating her like disposable dirt. He should be paying her out of his own personal wealth that DEIDRE earned for him.

  6. From Linda

    If Corday is writing John and Marlena out of the show, then my days of watching DOOL are over (after more than 40 years). All the newbies don’t hold a candle to the talent and fan base of John and Marlena. If they aren’t important enough to keep, along with the other vets, then I’m not wasting my time on the others. Where is the loyalty to fans and to the actors/actresses who have made the show what it has been for so many years? And, if this is another scheme of Corday’s, shame on you!! How sad that you would mess with people’s lives and emotions like that.

  7. From barbara

    please keep john and marlena and get rid of some of the young brats! keep nick, too. bring the nicky stuff to an end…at least for a while. rafe and sami are way over the top and boring!

  8. From Joan

    I agree with fans from the early days of DAYS – writing off John and Marlena will also be writing off a fairly strong fan base that has been built through the years. Maybe if they cut out some of the others (Chloe, Stephanie, Max,Daniel, Brady, etc.) they could afford to pay the more talented actors.

  9. From Lori

    i was so shocked to hear that john and marlena was leaving the show i have watched days since i was 18 yrs old i am now 39 its my favorite show would watch it over anything!i do not like the new brady replacement he doesn’t even compare to the original, so they should get rid of him and also melanie i hate her! and i wouldn’t be dissapointed if kate died, i also don’t care for rafe or that storyline at all.but i do love max i think hes awesome.and magee is sweet but i would be okay with her leaving if it saved john and marlena.and if nichole and ej don’t stay together that will make me ticked off i like them as a couple.i hate that sami is pregnant again and that nichole is losing her baby thats just wrong!

  10. From Ali

    PLEASE do not pair Brady with Chelsea or Stephanie…. They are related!!!! Chelsea’s dad is Brady’s uncle (Kiriakis side) and Stephanie’s mom is John’s (Brady’s dad) cousin!!!

  11. From Bill

    It’s just wrong to get rid of John and Marlena. They used to have to best story lines and drew people to watch. But the show now has some terrible writers and they need to get new ones. I admit I don’t like the nu-John, but get his character back to the way it was and boom we have a winner. There is so much to do with John/Marlena/Stefano. Days should use what they have and stop trying to bring new people in. Stefano is the best character Days created well use it. John, Marlena, Roman, Bo, and Hope can have a huge storyline involving Stefano and oh include Tony in it too. Get rid of Brady, Chloie, Max, Patch, Kayla, Lucas because even when thse characters have story lines they are boring. When the show is about them that day I change the channel.

  12. From deni

    ii wish we could watch ej and sami enjoy her pregnancy together (last time she had to w/ lucas).
    It would be nice to watch them fall more in love during this time.they belong together. i only watch if either of them are on.

  13. From deni

    ej and sami, tony and anna lets get these story lines going.

  14. From Doris Blaker

    If Corday is writing John and Marlena off DOOL then I will not longer watch the show when they leave. I’ve been with DOOL ever since my husband introduced me to DOOL over 25 years ago. He was an avid fan and both he and I agree that we want all the core families to remain on the show intact ,i.e. the Brady’s which includes Kayla and Stephen and Stephanie, Marlena and John and Brady Black, Victor and Phillip Kiriakis, The DeMera’s….Stefano, Tony, EJ, Anna, Lexie (Theo and Abe); all of Hortons including Lucas and Kate, and for Christ sake, keep Chole and bring back her parents. If you want new adventure, return the Alamains and Marlena’s crazy sister Samatha. If these family members, their spouses and children aren’t important enough to keep, then I’m not wasting my time watching. My loyalty rests with the actors and actresses who have made the show what it has been all these many years. If Corday is up to his threats again, he should be ashamed for taunting fans emotions and loyalty. And if NBC is interested in saving money then they ought to get rid of some of those dead prime-time shows they present, like Dateline which’s has long since worn out its purposed and.

  16. From forever fan

    I felt bad for Nicole I would not wish that on anyone!! I really hope that we dont have the story line where Nicole adopts a baby and it ends up Samis! I think Nicole should move on with Brady and Sami needs to come home and be with EJ and there kids! Lets think of new story lines not the reacuring ones that get REALLY OLD!!!!!

  17. From Judy

    Why would you get rid of the STARS in a show?? There are new people who have no fan base and no one really cares about their characters anyway. John and Marlena along with Bo and Hope, Kayla and Patch, and Lexie and Abe are the couples that keep us interested. Can there ever be another “happy period” when people are not always fighting and backbiting? The world is in enough strife. We need a little more happiness for more couples on the show.

  18. From Cindy

    Please Please Please no more unrealistic cures for diseases and unrealistic portrayals of them! NO MORE BABY SWITCHES. Let EJ just find out! Let them together offer to adopt, then and only then get Sami’s baby. Much more romance please.

  19. From Sharon

    I have watched DOOL for40 years also. Never have I been so bored with a show as I have been lately. The actors are only as good as the script they are given! If Corday gets rid of John and Marlena I will never watch it again and neither will my friends! Sami belongs w/ Ej while she is pregnant. Get rid of the newbies!

  20. From Maria

    I hope there will be more romance and no more disease storylines. There are enough diseases in real life, you dont want to watch a soap with them too. Also, Kate absolutely cannot die. I know there are probably a lot of people who hate her but there needs to be a character like that.

  21. From jess

    John and Marlena gone. I’m not sure what the powers that be were thinking, but, if they are so worried about budget cuts, they need to trim the “fat” somewhere. The “fat” of course, is all of the newbie talent that the show feels the need to continuously bring on. I think they have forgotten what DAYS is all about….the brady’s and the horton’s. I say get rid of the newbie talent and make way for John and Marlena to stay.

  22. From Chad

    I agree it is shocking to see both John & Marlena go, but unless something is done with their current characters, then it is all for the better. John’s new character is soooooo annoying. His over-acting, Clint Eastwood wanna be character is brutal to watch. As for the new younger characters, the show needs them…you can’t keep recycling them. The way I see it, is if a character can make you hate them as they play their character, then they are doing something right. With that said, bring Stefano back to the forefront, have Marlena become demon-possessed for the billionth time, bring back swamp-thing, do something.

  23. From judy

    Keep Kate, she is so bad. But let her realize that Dr. Dan is really in love with her granddaughter Chelsea. She has to come clean and admit that she tricked Dr. Dan into thinking he slept with her. I know it’s been done before but we need Chelsea and Dr.Dan back together. Besides noone is as wicked as Kate. Plus Nobody has such good chemistry as those two. Forget age and let these two be happy. We need some happiness. Romantic happiness. Lucas and
    Chloe don’t do it for me.

  24. From sara

    I love the vets and wish they would stop with getting more young characters cause they are boring! Lucas and Chloe aren’t that great of couple! Bo and Hope are my favorite, along with John and Marlena.

  25. From DaysAlways

    Write about Romance & Mysteries & Good Guys, Bad Guys & Rescues & Revenge! Bd Smart & Keep John & Marlena & PUT THEM BACK TOGETHER! These are the Day’s of Our Lives = Brady’s, Evans/Blacks, Hortons, Kiriakis, Dimera’s. Nicole has gone off the deep end & had tied a rope around Blind Brady’s throat! Let Victor deal with her the old fashion way! Or let Stephano find out she lost his Grandchild & has lied to his son! Maybe you could even bring back John just in the brink of time to save is son & find out who did this to him! Get rid of Nicole & put Chloe back in Good Graces with the families leaving her not needing Lucas! Heartbroken Lucas can go work with Billie for an undisclosed length of time (forever) :) Please Get rid of Melanie & send Max with her. Have Chelsea work with the little kids.

  26. From DaysAlways

    THESE ARE THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES
    John & Marlena, Bo & Hope, Sammi, Victor & Abe!
    The rest of the roles can be reaccuring. Some of the roles you don’t even need except for fill-ins.
    I Love EJ, Steve & Kayla, Lexie & Theo, Chloe, Philip, Tony, Anna, Maggie, and Yes even Stephano most of the time

  27. From Steph

    I’ve watched Days for 30yr.s. Please keep Marlena on and let Sami and E.J. be a couple.

  28. From Steph

    I’ve watched Days for 30years. Please keep Marlena on and let Sami and E.J. be a couple.

  29. From Lily

    who dresses Stephanie anyway, a hooker. Her dress on the job is so inapproiate it is insulting to professional and all women. She looks like she is working for a madam instead of a business executive. Get a grip Hollywood. WOMEN DON’T DRESS WITH THEIR boobs HANGING OUT ON THE JOB IN REAL LIFE UNLESS THEY ARE HOOKES SELLING THEIR BODIES!

    Removed inappropriate word and switched to ‘boob’s. :)

  30. From Ann

    All of you who like Sami and EJ together stop and think for a minute – would you want to be with somone who raped you and stalked you? It is very sick to like an
    abusive person and EJ is that in so many ways. Makes my skin crawl at how discusting that pairing is.
    To say nothing of adding Stefano’s sickness to it. YUCK!!

  31. From Ann

    I love the new twist with Bo today.

  32. From Bobbi

    Melanie needs to go – very strange girl. Dr. Dan is a sex addict – interesting but preverted. Kate needs to go. Marlena and John should definitely stay. Steve and Kayla should go. I’m liking Stephanie and Phillip they have that hot stare between the 2 of them. Sami and Rafe HOT keep more coming. Lucas and Chloe NO – nothing there. They should put Brady and Chloe together for a bit to see if there are any sparks – they have not been in enough scenes together to tell. EJ and Nicole leave together dirt goes well together. I am tired of the whole DiMera thing – there has to be more scripts that Days can come up with that are not about killing. What ever happened to love in the afternoon. Wasn’t that what soaps were made of back in the 60\, 70′s, 80′s and 90′s. What’s with Maggie being on the show so much – she is definitely no the matriarch type – she is not an Alice Horton – that should of been Marlena’s job.

  33. From Marie Antionette

    First ,don’t get rid of John and
    Doc, Make John normal again. Bring back some of the others that you let go.Make the shows more realistic.To much fanasty,unreal crap.Thank you Marie Antionette

  34. From Daysfan

    They should bring Belle back to be with Philip, ad let EJ know about Sami’s baby..He oves he and they belong together.

  35. From Sylvia

    Since the show is so good at doing same old thing about babies, maybe Nicole could wake up in the shower and realize it was a nightmare that she lost her baby-rememberBobby in “Dallas”. I want her and EJ together and Sami and Lucas. They are part of the two families that have been the mainstay of Days. Get rid of all the new like Melanie,etc ane bring back Belle, Shawn and Mike Horton.

  36. From Linda

    Don’t let John and Marlena go. They are what made the show great all these years, along with the Hortons and Bradys, Bo/Hope, Steve/Kayla. Eliminate some of the newer folks and free up money to pay the vets. Without them the show will fail–and quickly! Of all the couples that should stay on DOOL, it should be John/Marlena.

  37. From Janice

    I can’t believe that the producers are letting Marlena & John go??? This couple was the mainstay of the show from the beginning when John showed up. They had great storylines as well as humor (especially when it involved Anna. Why can the producers not come up with a storyline that would see some of the original cast members working together. We haven’t seen Patch & Kayla, John & Marlena and Bo & Hope in anything major for such a long time. I remember the days when even Alice Horton would get involved in detective work and Dr. Horton would just roll his eyes and say “What are you up to now” I think if you are trying for the younger audience, your losing them as well. You need some sort of happy medium and letting your major characters go will also lose your middle-aged audience as well.

    There are a lot of people who have watched DOOL since the beginning and would like to see it go on with better storylines! If you go back to the earlier years and look at which stories brought in the most viewers or which characters (John/Marlena, Roman, Bo/Hope. Caliapi/Eugene and Patch/Kayla just to name a few)were named a lot just for the scenes they were in. There were many good stories then, and I believe that the writers & producers can come up with stories that keep us as viewers glued to our TV sets just to find out what is going to happen.

    Maybe ask yourselves why other soaps continue to be in the top??? Their not letting their main characters go, they use them because of what they bring to the show and their capabilities.

    I believe your going backwards by letting great actors go. Some of the actors on the show at the moment haven’t earned their right to stay.

    Please keep Marlena & John and start using the veteran actors more. That’s what keeps fans like myself to continue watching Days of our Lives.

    Janice

  38. From TAnn

    It is amazing how Exec’s never learn making mistakes all the time.
    John and Marlena are the core of Day’s of Our Lives and have been
    for years. Steve and Kayla were
    gone for years didn’t seem to have
    the impact that John and Marlena
    will have. They are charismatic couple that you can not afford to lose. Seems some need to
    learn the hardway by their mistakes. You want to make cuts
    do it with the boring characters
    like Chelsea, Kate, Chloe, whinners
    Melanie, Phillip and Lucas.

    TAnn

  39. From katherine anderson

    have ej find out about necole it has went on to long he needs to find sami before the baby born

  40. From Ann

    Please keep John and marlena they are the history of the show along with Bo & Hope Steve and Kayla and it want be the same without them and Please Please Please Let E J and Stephno catch Nicole in all her lies..and let Sami and EJ get together hey Nicole and Rafe would make a good couple..I love the new Brady & RafeRRafeandRafe..alolovthemfrom passions

  41. From B Davis

    We used to watch the show in the 70′s and 80′s. Then the writing started being eh, eh not so good. We started watching again when they brought Patch and Kayla and some of the other great characters. We’ve always liked the stability of J & M, “Ma & Pa” Brady, and some others. You need to have some couples that aren’t so screwed up. We really enjoyed Eugene and Coliapy when they were on. They were fun. Give Patch and Kayla more Dialog. Add some comedy back in!!! Nick would be good in a role like Eugene. Why not write Eugene and Coliapy back in with a daughter that could be paired with Nick for some comedy? You could even write in a guy like Wallingford from that other show. But give him an attitude like Dr. House(Hugh Laurie). He could be a nosy match maker or a bartender. You need to have someone work at the pub for some fresh air, like the bartender Roman used to play, but likeable, not whiney like max.
    One last thing. Hire a new writer with fresh ideas.

  42. From Shari

    Bad move to let the characters that play Marlena and John go

  43. From mary

    I have been watchinf DOOL for 30 years. It has become so boring lately. The writers must be out of ideas. There are no interesting new couples. Stories take too long to evolve and are very predictable. All the couples are boring. Chelsea needs a new love, Lucas needs to dump Chloe (slut) I kind of like Phil and Steph, Mel needs to leave town, Sami needs to be with EJ. I do not like Bo’s visions. Wake up writers!!

  44. From Jen

    I agree with many of the other comments. John and Marlena, Bo and Hope have been on this show as long as I can remember. I also have been watching for almost 30 years. Sometimes the story lines get a little ridiculous and unrealistic but I guess that’s why we come back for more. Although, I am sooooooooooooooo tired of the manipulating people (Nicole) getting away with everything FOREVER. Things shouldn’t take so long to come to an end. Kate needs to go, I have never liked her. Lucas and Chloe are very boring. I love Rafe, but I loved him on Passions, so I am being biased…but I have been waiting for Sami and EJ to finally be together and it’s been YEARS of bulls**t! Stefano needs to die, and actually stay dead.

  45. From Clara

    I no longer watch daily. It has become a sad joke of what was once a fine show. Who is a Horton? Why do the cops always have to be clueless? Why have Bo have “visions”? Get rid of, in no particular order, Dr. Dan, Melanie, Phillip, EJ.

  46. From Bil Sullivan

    What’s with all this whining about Melanie? Probably no other actress has as much fun with her character than Molly, who delivers Melanie’s one-liners ever so brilliantly. Melanie’s full of spunk; never know what’s going to happen with her next. Right on.

  47. From Lorianne

    I would love to see some forbidden passion. A true love story between people who’s families are at war with eachother. making it really hard for the couple to be seen together or tell anyone about eachother. Secret meetings and near misses. Young forbidden love. Yes. That would be hot.

  48. From Marie

    what role does Justin have in the kidnaping he looks so guilty of something think you are doing Bo and Hope wrong

  49. From Missy

    bring bo & hope,bk together & wk things out. find celeste to help bo’s vizons. & bring ej & sami more closer than U,think & they bring down nicole, that grace,is alive. bring them bk to remarry & have full custody of their children & ej move out fm the mansion & away fm stefano. bring ej bk to normal & forgive sami. Um, Rafe & Nicole, together as a supercouple,they deserve to be together. then bring down kate,send her to jail,let kate,not to marry stefano.bring daniel & chelsea,together they are the greatest supercouple as for chloe,bk to her ex brady. philip w/ melanie,as a supercouple,nathan w/ stephanie, they are amaizeing supercouple in salem. thank’s, I, would be bring days to normal. thank’s,
