Entertainment: Days of Our Lives (1971 cast photo. Pictured from left:Edward Mallory, Denise Alexander, Macdonald Carey and Susan Flannery)


American daytime soap opera broadcast on the NBC television network (and often abbreviated to DOOL or Days). It is one of the longest-running scripted television programs in the world, airing nearly every weekday since 8 November 1965. It has since been syndicated to many countries around the world. Until the network's closure in 2013, Soapnet rebroadcast episodes of Days on a same-day basis each weeknight at 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific Time). The series was created by husband-and-wife team Ted Corday and Betty Corday. Irna Phillips was a story editor for Days of Our Lives and many of the show's earliest storylines were written by William J. Bell.

Due to the series' success, it was expanded from 30 minutes to 60 minutes on 21 April 1975. The series focuses on its core families, the Hortons and the Bradys. Several other families have been added to the cast, and many of them still appear on the show. Frances Reid, the matriarch of the series' Horton family remained with the show from its inception to her death on 3 February 2010. Suzanne Rogers celebrated 40 years on Days of Our Lives in 2013, appearing on the show more or less since her first appearance in 1973. Susan Seaforth Hayes is the only cast member to appear on Days of Our Lives in all five decades it has been on air.

Days of Our Lives aired its 12,000th episode on 11 January 2013. The soap was given the title of most daring drama in the seventies due to covering topics other soaps would not dare to do. The show's executive producer is Ken Corday, and co-executive producers are Greg Meng and Albert Alarr. Days of Our Lives is the most widely distributed soap opera in the United States.

The show has been parodied by SCTV (as "The Days of the Week") and the television sitcom Friends, with some cast members making crossover appearances on the show, including Kristian Alfonso, Roark Critchlow, Matthew Ashford, Kyle Lowder, and Alison Sweeney.
