NBC’s ‘Days of Our Lives’ has a new streaming home

Published

on

Longtime watchers of “Days of Our Lives” will now need a Peacock subscription as the soap opera is leaving network television.

After a 57-year run on NBC, the show will become exclusive to the network’s streaming service, Peacock, effective Sept. 12, the network announced Wednesday.

“Days” has been the least-watched soap opera compared to other networks’ shows for years, Vulture reported. The Peacock switcheroo comes as the show’s contract with NBC only has one season left. The move allows NBCUniversal — who owns Peacock — to determine the show’s fate.

The new “NBC News Daily,” anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford, will fill “Days’” TV slot.

There is already a “Days” miniseries available to stream on Peacock, but there’s no data to yet determine how the specials are doing.

“This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement with viewers,” Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said in a release.

“With a large percentage of the ‘Days of Our Lives’ audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fan base on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers,” he added.

Thursday night football and ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” will also be exclusive to streaming services this fall.

“Days” departure means American soap opera fans only have three daytime shows to choose from: ABC’s “General Hospital,” CBS’ “Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

NBC spawned the popularity of soap operas in 1949 with “These Are My Children.” The genre would be the backbone for TV networks from the mid-1960s to the early 1990s.

“Days” originally aired on Nov. 8, 1965.

Mariah Carey Loves Christmas, Spoiling Her Kids After ‘Messed-Up’ Childhood

Published

on

Not always a Christmas queen. While Mariah Carey’s name has become synonymous with the festive holiday, her childhood wasn’t regal.

“I know a lot of the time people are like, ‘Oh, yay! Look at her! She’s, like, so festive and such a Christmas girl,’ or whatever. But, really, Christmas makes me happy. People think I had this princess-style life or whatever, a kind of fairy-tale existence where I just emerged, like, ‘Here I am!’ And that is not what it is,” Carey, 52 told magazine in a profile published on Friday, November 25.

She continued: “But when you grow up with a messed-up life and then you’re able to have this transformation where you can make your life what you want it to be? That is joy for me. That’s why I want my kids to have everything they can have. I want them to be able to understand that they can be anything they want to be.”

The “Without You” songstress became a mother in April 2011, welcoming twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-husband Nick Cannon. (The Masked Singer host, 42, is also father to 9 other kids and is currently expecting baby No. 12, his second with Alyssa Scott.) As Carey and Cannon continue to coparent their twins, the Grammy Award winner goes all out for the holiday season.

“I create my own Christmas moment. I mean, Santa Claus visits us. He comes with his reindeer. I am not exaggerating — this is the truth,” the New York native told W. “By the way, before my kids were born, I did all the same types of things. That’s just how it is with me and Santa and the reindeer.”

She added: “I love giving them gifts because the act of opening up a ton of presents is something I wasn’t able to do as a child.”

The Meaning of Mariah Carey author kicked off her 2022 festivities with a rendition of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, November 24. As Carey crooned her hit song, the 11-year-olds made surprise cameos as they popped out of present boxes to dance alongside their mama.

“Happy Thanksgiving!!!🍁,” the Christmas Princess author wrote via Instagram on Thursday, sharing footage from the NBC broadcast. “Grateful and so proud of my beautiful kids Roc and Roe, grateful for the lambily and for the precious moments in life. ❤️❤️❤️ Now it’s reaaaallly time!!! 🎄🎅🏼.”
