‘Days of Our Lives’ News: Carlivati Winning at DOOL – Kelly Clarkson Show Unlikely To Replace Days

Days of Our Lives fans wonder about the fate of their soap because Kelly Clarkson will be joining NBC daytime television. Her new talk show will be called The Kelly Clarkson Show. It will air in 30% of U.S. households. Clarkson will also serve as an executive producer with Brandon Blackston, her husband. DOOL fans worry that the show’s low ratings will cause the show to be replaced. Ron Carlivati was appointed the new Headwriter December 20, 2017, to save the ailing soap.

Days of Our Lives Fans Worried About The Fate Of Days

Fans of NBC’s long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives worry about what a new daytime show might mean for the beloved soap.  While a new show during daytime could put any daytime show at risk Days fans shouldn’t worry. In 2017, rumors swirled that The Megan Kelly Show would take the place of DOOL.  The rumors never materialized and Days was renewed for its 52nd season

Days of Our Lives On The Right Track

In recent years, Days of Our Lives has struggled with storylines and ratings. In 2018, Days is finally on the right track. At the Daytime Emmy Awards, DOOL won five trophies. Including the highest honor, Oustanding Drama Series. They also saw wins in Outstanding Lead Actor, Outstanding Supporting Actor, Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team, and Outstanding Drama Series Directing Team.

Days of Our Lives – Best It’s Been In Years

Days of Our Lives has seen some rough years. The constant rotation of writers and the six months in advance filming schedule hasn’t been kind to Days in recent years. However, Days seems to be getting back to its roots. Fans have seen much more family support this year which has always been a staple of Days of Our Lives but lacking in recent years.

Days of Our Lives veterans Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes also took home a trophy this year at the Daytime Emmys. They received the Life Time Achievement Award.

Days of Our Lives Ron Carlivati writing saved the sinking NBC Soap

Under current head writer Ron Carlivati, ratings are going up and the storylines have fans talking. The return on fan favorites such as Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Kristen DiMera (now played by Stacy Haiduk) have pleased fans. Also, the temporary returns of Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady), Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker) and Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan) have fans thrilled once more.

Days of Our Lives Returning To Its Roots

DOOL has also added much-needed comedy to the show recently. Deidre Hall and Judi Evans have reprised the roles of their counterparts, Hattie Adams and Bonnie Lockhart. These characters add a lot of humor to the show. Two major storylines currently involve Hattie and Bonnie. Both actresses are delivering the laughs.

Romance has also taken center stage once again at Days as well. The wedding of super couple John Black (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena Evans had fans tuning in. DOOL fans have come to expect all Salem weddings to involve lots of drama. Marlena and John’s delivered on that drama. Fans are also keeping an eye on Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) and Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) who are certainly super couple material.

Days of Our Lives has had a long run yet continues to have a huge fan base. DOOL has had a great year in 2018. It’s unlikely that NBC will part ways with the popular soap opera in favor of The Kelly Clarkson Show.

The Steve Harvey Show currently appears in the timeslot Kelly Clarkson will occupy next fall. Therefore, it’s most likely that his show will be canceled and Days of Our Lives will remain on the air.
