Hit Series Will Celebrate Its 45th Anniversary in November
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – March 19, 2010 – NBC has picked up hit daytime drama "Days of our Lives" for its 45th season, keeping the long-running show on the network through the 2010-11 television season, it was announced today by Marc Graboff, Chairman, NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios.
YAY!!! I am glad it has been renewed. I have kept up with days for almost 40 years! I would hate to see it cancelled, but I also wish that it would be like a good story you can’t wait to see how the end turns out!
Great news. My memories of Days go back to the mid seventies when Mickey lost his memory and ended up at Maggies farm house doorstep. I drifted away from the show from time to time but have been an avid viewer again since 2003 during the middle of the Salem Slasher storyline when I saw promos of my longtime favorites being picked off one by one. The writing on Days is not the greatest right now but I think the fans are getting to see some of their favorites return even if only for short stints.
I don’t know about independent, but all I know is in the tri state area NBC is channel 4 and it is pathetic that they ran infomercials for a year every morning after the today show…they kept canceling every new show they tried….They have Bonnie Hunt? and deal or no deal, then Ellen. We have Oprah on ABC, here.
