The veteran soap continues.
February 11, 2016
NBC announced today that Days of our Lives has been renewed for a 51st season. The long-running series began over half a century ago, premiering in 1965 as a half-hour drama and expanding to a full hour 10 years later. The show has won a total of 43 Daytime Emmy Awards, including last year's win for Outstanding Daytime Drama.
Days of our Lives is the network's last-remaining soap opera on its afternoon schedule. It saw an uptick in its ratings late last year while celebrating its 50th anniversary. During the week of November 2-6 the show averaged an almost 2-year high of 2.72 million viewers, carrying its momentum over to the new year with a slight increase on that number in early January.

My mom watched with my grandma, I watched with my mom and now on my own. the story turnover used to be really slow an I would only watch 2-3 a week if that because you didn't miss much of anything. Now the stories cycle through much faster and that is so much better. It is a soap opera it has to change with the times, it's just something fun to watch during lunch break, I still love it. I'm happy it will continue to be on air.

I watched the show from day one, being pregnant with my first child. Really enjoyed for many years, and have met many of the stars, I was a very loyal fan. Watching the Hortons still each year as they decorate the traditional Christmas tree, and now not knowing all the players. I will ALWAYS remember Tom and Alice and what family was all about.
Now I watch only to drop in with an old friend. Live on Days.

When this show started in 1965, I enjoyed it, I found it entertaining for a number of years, then it started to really change, for the WORSE. Don't remotely recognize now.
