  • What Days could do to fill the eventual hiatus

    So as some of you may know, CBS has been re-running old episodes of Y&R and B&B after running out of new episodes to air. While Days still has months of new episodes to run, a hiatus is inevitable and something will be needed to fill the time. So I had an idea, Corday Productions could create condensed episodes of older storylines.

    I got the idea when I came across a video on YouTube of Channel 9's (Australian television channel) brief summary of the Salem Stalker storyline that featured all the deaths that took place. So Corday could do the exact same thing, all they would need is a dedicated group of editors to piece through popular storylines to create a cohesive narrative and they could do it. Unlike following the CBS' lead and airing older episodes out-of-order and incomplete, Corday could compile entire episodes of condensed storylines for airing on NBC.

    Thoughts?

    That's a good idea. Question would be how good a job the editors would do with it lol. Days editing department seems to have issues with cutting the wrong scenes or scenes that are spoiled in magazines or are pertinent to the stories at hand. I like the idea. The way things are going Days might need to make plans no matter how far ahead they were before the shutdown.

      I think Days could have guest hosts introduce some of Days biggest stories over time. A kind of Days rewind. It would actually be fun I think. They could do weekly themes. They could have a Dimera week for example showing the biggest stories that revolve around Stefano and his kids. That would take over a week though!

        That's what Y&R is currently doing with themed weeks and having cast members introducing episodes.

      I think doing a clip show as you suggest is much harder. I believe a show has to get permission from every single actor if they produce a clip show, as opposed to just airing a repeat of an episode. So, a clip show would not only cost a lot of money (for the many actors who might appear in clips), but beforehand, the show would have to get permission from anyone featured in a clip.

      It's different for a repeat. They don't need to get permission, just pay the actors featured in the episode.

        I think Days will show re-runs, but not recent episodes like 2019 where people are going to tune out. Plus, it might be a hit and miss with very old episodes, either people will tune in or not. And there are some people who may not be in the world today. Which is one of the reasons of lower viewership.

        I'd love for them to show old episodes, but if they do it'll probably just be from the past year or so. I wish they'd go back further. Finding old Days clips is so hard!

          Dr. Rolf can come up with a Coronavirus cure so they can keep filming.

            It would be nice if they aired their web episodes. I don't know how many there are, or how long they are, but it's a nice idea. Remember that those are not available outside of the US, (at least not the last time i looked). Many fans have never seen them. When entire Two Scoops articles are dedicated to the web episodes, the rest of us left in the dark.

            It could be a cool option, but do those episodes connect directly to what happens on TV?

              They don't connect much to the TV series. They were made to be watched without affecting the TV series much. The main connection to the TV series is that the day Chad & Abby left Paris on the app series (November 7), they showed up in Salem on November 8. And, we recently met Li Shin, the son of Mr. Shin, on the TV show. He had previously only appeared on the app series.

              Each of the Chad & Abby series had a runtime of around 1 hour. The Last Blast Reunion had a runtime of around 1 hour, 20 minutes. So, combined, the 3 web series are around 2 hours, 20 minutes. So they would take up just under 4 episodes on TV (37 minute episodes).

                Well, if we've run out of episodes by Fall, Days could revert to the 30min format and this could give about 7 episodes, 8 if it was stretched.

                  I know I will probably make many mad, but I would love to see Days do a week or 2 dedicated to Sami. I have episodes in mind that they could air too.
