NBC's "Days of Our Lives" brings back former cast members, ties for #1 spot main image

NBC announced they have tied for the #1 spot in the women’s viewing demographic, which is between the ages of 18 and 34.  The show has also seen a 5% increase in viewership from the same time period one year prior (the week of October 3-7).  The boost to “Days of Our Lives” viewership comes after the show has brought several former cast members back. 

Former cast mates that have returned to the program include the following.

  • Mary Beth Evans as Kayla Brady Johnson
  • Matthew Ashford as Jack Deveraux
  • Melissa Reeves as Jennifer Horton
  • Christie Clark as Carrie Brady Reed
  • Patrick Muldoon as Austin Reed
  • Drake Hogestyn as John Black
  • Deidre Hall as Marlena Evans

“Days of Our Lives” recently closed out a number of storylines and has introduced new storylines.  A number of cast members have left the show and other story lines seem to be in limbo and may possibly never have a conclusion.  Characters that have either been written out of the show or are in temporary limbo include: Nicholas and Vivian Alamain, Stephanie Johnson, Philip Kiriakis, Chloe Lane, Carly Manning, Taylor Walker, Nathan Horton and Dario Hernandez.  As you can see, there’s been quite a big shakeup over at “Days of Our Lives,” and according to the ratings jump, it’s been worth it.

What do you think?  Are you a “Days of Our Lives” fan?  Is there a story line you are excited about seeing, or is there a cast member or character you’d like to see return?
