Matthew Ashford Says Goodbye to Days Fans

By May 16, 2012

Follow me on:

Matthew AshfordIn an ironic twist of fate, weeks after learning he was being written off Days of Our Lives by the show's new head writing team, Matthew Ashford was nominated for his first Daytime Emmy Award as Jack Deveraux.

How does the actor feel about leaving the soap that has been his daytime home, on and off, since 1987?

Ashford revealed all in a recent interview, which you can access here.

1987 the year I started watching Days! Oh how I loved Jack and Jen back then when Jen would throw herself at Jack and he would always push her away. They sure were awesome to watch! It’s a shame how they’re treated now!

May 16, 2012 at 7:10 pm
(2) EA says:

I remember Jack and Steve fighting on the fire escape. I think Steve gave Jack a kidney? So long ago, haha. Remember that one dark haired Jack that was more buff? I think he played Jack when Jack was in the hospital and Kayla felt guilty and they married. I never liked comedy Jack and it’s too bad Mark Valley was never the major Jack since he was awesome.

Why is it that the writers don’t use Matthew in the best way. He adds the humor to Days and that is missing, The character is one for the base characters and needs to be there even if it just once in a while. It is a shame the big people don’t see it that way!

It must be hard for these actors to be fired and rehired time and time again for the same show. Much as I never liked Jack for Jennifer, he would’ve been an interesting partner for Billie. I think they would’ve made it as a couple. Even Matt Ashford and Melissa Reeves, from reading their interviews are tired of the same old same old storyline of Jack leaving Jennifer and then coming back to win her over and over again. It was a stupid move to bring back Jack to break up Daniel and Jennifer who had a great relationship going, only for him to leave again.

Here we go again!!!! How many of out “Days” favorites are going to be written off again. You would think that after the demise of so many soaps and the rise in ratings for “Days”, due in part to the return of so many of our favorites, the new writers would try and create better story lines ~ not write our favorites out… I am very disappointed.

I do not understand why they even bother to bring the character of Jack back and not give ant storyline and now why firing again. Such senseless acts certainly kill enthusiasm to watch more episodes. Good writers will write stories with the characters already intricately involved in the story lines and integral part of Horton family. It is such a shame. I can only see dooms day.

May 23, 2012 at 11:29 am
(9) A says:

I can’t believe the way the show has yanked Jack fans around again. He came back with so much good story ready and waiting, but the show just refused to use it. I was so excited for Matt Ashford’s return, but I feel like the show just pulled a fake out on me. Any love I had left for the show goes with Matt Ashford.

May 23, 2012 at 6:00 pm
(10) DLEE says:

I’m keeping the faith. I hope his leaving isn’t final and DOESN”T happen. Jack and Jen should both be on (hopefully) or both be gone. What good is a half couple? (I.e. Kayla – DId she dessert he child and husband or what? and what can they do with that?) What about Caroline? What about Daniel? soon to be Brady and Abe. They should keep Jack and give him a real story line (not just comedic relief) while he is working is way back to Jen. If not, oatch them off, and send them to a DC hopsital to work with wounded, returning soldiers.

May 23, 2012 at 9:13 pm
(11) LB says:

Why do soaps bring back characters and a few months later let them go again. What a waste. It was so nice having some of the original cast back. Here we go again.

May 24, 2012 at 8:43 am
(12) BECKY says:

JACK AND JENNIFER ALWAYS MEANT TO BE ON DAYS OF OUR LIVES WITHOUT THEM THE SHOW WOULD NOT BE THE SAME SAME AS THE OTHERS YOU ARE KICKING OFF.

May 24, 2012 at 2:01 pm
(13) Diane Zion says:

I was so excited that Jack was back only to see they misused him and now he is going again. I am already annoyed with the show as it is (Sammy and Rafe story). After watching for 40 or more years, I am not watching anymore.

May 25, 2012 at 4:41 pm
(14) Karen says:

Sorry to see Jack leave. Stupid to make him a part of the story and rip him out again. Now, will not miss the wooden Howdy Doody actor who is Austin, a really BAD creepy actor. Poor Carrie, being stuck with him. But, that is the way stupid writers do things.

May 26, 2012 at 11:57 am
(15) Carnation says:

I have been watching Days since the 1960s and have seen lots of actors come and go. Here are some thoughts I have on DOOL:

1- Get rid of: Madison, Ian, Gabi, Melanie, Austin, Kayla

2- Keep: Marlena and John, Billie, Shane, Carrie, Chad

3- Think about changing the “character” of Hope. She is arrogant, and possibly anorexic. Recently, she was disgusting as Princess Gina, sucking on a cigarette, with that goofy accent.

4- Give the characters of Bo, Roman, Abe more to do. (Keep Lexie – I know she wants to leave, but she’s one of the best characters.)

5- Keep Will! (Especially his interactions with Marlena and EJ.)

6- Somehow, throw Stephano in jail!

7- Take away Sami’s brattiness and childishness. Have her grow up.

8- Give Rafe someone to care about – how about staying with Nicole and raising her baby as his?

9- Resolve the who is EJ’s father storyline. Make EJ a good guy fighting his father. Give EJ a woman to love.

These are my random thoughts – I want Days to stay on the air; I want it to be full of adventure and people who care about each other.

(16) Janiebell says:

With “Jack” LEAVING dAYS OF OUR LIVES YET AGAIN what will happen to the “Jack, Jennifer, Abigale” storyline? Why was Jack Jr. not brought back?

May 28, 2012 at 1:55 pm
(17) jeri jackson says:

I agree about Will that child is one fantastic actor…You will be lucky to keep him….He throws a fit very well….he could lead to Emmys for you………..And of course I agree that Stefano needs to go…his story lines are to old school…………….need a new bad guy….or girl…..

May 28, 2012 at 1:59 pm
(18) jeri jackson says:

more emotional Will . he could get you an Emmy…….Stefano has out lived his usefulness………to old school…………………………………..I am a young 70……I remember all of his story lines……get a new bad guy with modern day bad stuff going on…..give us a new person to hate……….

May 28, 2012 at 8:02 pm
(19) ak says:

bring Jack back!!! His style, humor, and character complexity is great! He was the only reason I tuned back in…and when he leaves…will tune back out!

May 29, 2012 at 4:14 pm
(20) Diane says:

Get rid of Jack, I love the Jen and Daniel story. Please let them together again.

May 30, 2012 at 11:53 pm
(21) MzNuRsE says:

PLEASE BRING TONY DIMERA BACK!!!!!!!!
Sami & Lucas should get back together.
But Please, BRING TONY DIMERA BACK & LET STEFANO LIVE!!!

May 31, 2012 at 1:29 am
(22) Paula says:

Bring back Jack!

May 31, 2012 at 6:54 pm
(23) Nan says:

Rafe and Carrie make a great couple so upset they are letting Carrie go, put EJ with Sami, Nicole with Brady and Jennifer and Daniel together.

June 1, 2012 at 3:41 am

no jack. No days
Might as well let jennifer go too. She is only good with jack

June 4, 2012 at 2:51 pm
(25) GC says:

” DAYS ” PLEASE FIND A WAY TO KEEP JACK IN THE SHOW.
BRING HIM BACK………DON’T LET HIM GO.

June 4, 2012 at 5:06 pm
(26) Jean says:

PUT JENNIFER BACK WITH DANIEL. GET RID OF JACK, HE IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN A BIG JOKE. WILL HAS NOT ACTED ON BEING GAY. SO PLEASE LET HIM BE STRAIGHT. LET IT JUST BE HIS MIXED UP EMOTIONS, WITH ALL THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON. HE IS NEEDED ON THE SHOW AS A STRAIGHT GUY.(THERE AREN’T MANY). LEAVE RAFE AND NICOLE TOGETHER. SHE REALLY CARES FOR HIM. HE NEEDS SOMEONE TO CARE FOR HIM HE IS A GREAT GUY. IF LEXIE CAN’T OR WON’T STAY WHY CAN’T YOU HAVE HER GO FOR TREATMENT AND COME BACK WITH A REPLACEMENT FOR HER? WE ALL WOULD RATHER HAVE HER STAY,BUT IF SHE DON’T. FIND A REPLACEMENT. THE SHOW NEEDS LEXIE.

June 5, 2012 at 2:50 am
(27) Shelia says:

Daniel and Jennifer get real……..Daniel and Billie have great chemistry….Thats’ if they don’ write her off too. Days is slowly dying….Goodbye Days

June 7, 2012 at 9:33 pm
(28) Kitty says:

I’m glad to see Jack go. He’s the biggest buffoon on there, and that’s saying a lot. I can’t stand him or Austin. They can both leave and take that hateful acting Will with them!

June 9, 2012 at 10:24 am
(29) Julia says:

As a very longtime fan of Days, I was devastated when the old Jack and Jennifer storyline ended, but the new Jack and Jennifer storyline just never cut it. It just never seemed right the second time around.

June 9, 2012 at 12:56 pm
(30) Carol says:

I have watched Days since I was a kid, I remember playing sick so I could stay home just to watch the show.Only half hour at the time.The show has gone throw so many changes, sometimes I want to stop watching all together but Im hooked I cant stop watching.As to what I believe the show need is more Hortons and less Bradys. Or mix them together like Bo and Hope.Make EJ a Horton that would wake the show up. Can you see Hope related to EJ.Bring back the Hortons.

June 14, 2012 at 3:12 am
(31) Charlene says:

I was hoping Stefano wasn’t really dead. If they are getting rid of all my favorites I’m going to stop watching days permanently . I mean why bother? I’ve tuned in since I was a kid off and on nearly 40 years to see what is happening with characters you have known for mot of our life now it will be just pointless . What with bring characters back just to ax them? Guys your making a big mistake.

July 29, 2012 at 5:03 pm
(32) marily says:

No, not Jack!!! i love him and Jennifer together, and to tell the truth, i was very disappointed when Jack got a job at the university teaching journalism, that we never did see the university of Salem!! Supposedly Jack and Marlena work there, and so did Austin…but why wasn’t that played up more? that would’ve been very interesting. AND what happened to the ladies breakfast club they were supposed to have every week or something? i hate when the show comes up with great ideas and then never follows through with them. I have watched this show faithfully for years, and i can say the only characters getting anything interesting is Kate and Samantha – the rest of the story lines start out exciting but seem to whither…this past week, however has been very exciting.

without jack there is no jennifer keep jack and give him a decent story

August 1, 2012 at 4:59 pm

I llove days since forever! Stefano should not be dead.let Ej find out he reallyis stepanos son.get sammy back with Rafe! I love days!

August 3, 2012 at 11:55 pm
(35) Carolyn says:

PLEASE KEEP JACK ON DAYS! Daniel is cute with Nicole since Madison took Brady away. I was so sad when Jack and Jennifer were off the show and so excited to see them back! Why punish him again when he is doing such a great job! Always loved Jack and Jen!!! Please Change your plan for Jack !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

August 7, 2012 at 7:29 am
(36) leah says:

will you get Sammy out of every mans bed and give her somebody to
hang onto. Rafe was good for her but she couldn’t keep her pants on.
love the show and have been watching since it started . Can’t wait for
the games to be over and get out of London and back to Salem

August 7, 2012 at 2:20 pm
(37) Robin says:

I agree with Carnation about who should go, except for Melanie. Stupid decision to let Jack go. I agree: let Jack and Jen go off and be happy; you can’t just get rid of one. Kayla back without Steve is stupid. And hope Bo isn’t off either (he leaves in October). The new “old” writers are disappointing me.

August 11, 2012 at 12:32 am
(38) Jack Burgin says:

To hell with Days. Tired of this crap the writers do. Bring Matt Ashfod back then fire, then bring him back then fire him again. Jack, and Jennifer were a supercouple, and these so called writers, and producers are doing this same crap again. Well to hell with them, I will not watch this show again after Matt ashfords last airdate. They treat a good mand and actor like him like crap, and totally screw up the charecter. Yeah keep up the cost cutting. You are loosing your fans, and you wonder why.

August 11, 2012 at 9:15 pm
(39) Pam says:

Seriously…..I’m a die-hard DOOL fan have been since I can remember I don’t like a lot of their changes, but I’ve learned over the years you can voice your opinion then just wait and see what happens and believe me I have several opinions about the latest shake ups. My opinion even if they bring Matt Ashford back Jack and Jennifer SHOULD NOT be a couple let Jennifer be with somebody AMD be happy What bout Frankie Brady? Now there’s an idea….but only my opinion and what bout Sami? Come on give the poor girl somee lasting happiness let her grow old with Rafe or Lucas

August 12, 2012 at 7:32 am
(40) X-DaysFan says:

I was a die hard days fan and so was my family and friends, but we are all done with this show now, we loved Jack and Jennifer together, they have had a rough go of it with all the times the show has killed jack off and bought him back, why dont they let jack and jennifer live in peace. I also loved the Sami, Rafe storyline but they had to bring back Carrie (who I dont think can act at all) and mess it all up! I think the Days writers need to rethink what they are doing and think about the fans. I wont be watching again but I hope for the sake of the shows ratings they think about their fans alot more than they are doing now!

August 13, 2012 at 3:56 pm
(41) Sylcia says:

I have watched day since beginning. I am upset that NBC and Days let Peter(BO ) go. He and Hope are the future of the Hortons and Bradys
Why are the writers doing with Sami? Allison should object. No sane woman would want to be with the likes of EJ. Lucas and Sami are also about the Hortons and Bradys. That is what this show was all about. I never did like Jack so I wish they would get her and Daniel back together.
I am about ready to give up on Days, so I hope things get beetter

August 13, 2012 at 9:34 pm
(42) Evelyn Burnside says:

I don’t care if those wonderful, glorious new writers won silly little awards, These awards are given by people in the industry. They are
certainly not given by the audience you are trying to reach. I think the new writers have lost their ever loving minds…getting rid of some of
our faviorite actors. These writers are just trying to impress and entertain each other. I think you need to get rid of these power hungry little farts and get some real writers. I have been watching DAYS OF OUR LIVES since they came on the air.
I spend 35 years in advertising agencies and television stations and
always managed to get to a television somewhere to see this show.
Only soap opera I ever watched. I’m getting ready to pull the plug.

August 14, 2012 at 12:44 am
(43) VR says:

I couldn’t wait for Jack to come back on Days. Then he’s back and they barely give him a storyline. He’s one of the reasons I started watching the show again just to be disappointed. Now, they’ve let him go again along with some other great characters. Doesn’t seem worth watching just to see Sami and EJ. Sad the writers and producers can’t figure out OR stick with anything long enough to gain and retain viewers. They’ve lost our household with the “death” of Jack.

August 14, 2012 at 12:49 am
(44) Ann says:

The reason Days has lasted has always been the couples and their relationships intertwining. I stopped even including Days on my DVR settings until you brought Jack back and had hoped that the writers would find a great storyline for them, but no they write off Jack. Get rid of Gabi and some of the whiners on the show instead of breaking up the best couples on daytime TV. Time to take Days off my DVR list when Jack gets the axe.

August 14, 2012 at 1:27 am
(45) dee says:

bo was the steady center of ‘days.’ i haven’t watched my recordings of the show since before he left. the writers like to mock the viewers by yanking out favorites such bo and jack. i was hoping jack’s return would be the permanent removal of daniel. what a one-note actor. and he can take along nicole, another one-note actor with one expression. loved seeing jennifer and jack together, marlena and john back, and delighted to lose stephano (wish it could be permanent.) and dare i say it: i am tired, tired of sami. she never changes her character. still a boring brat pretending to be a child. her ‘days’ are over. she could take along lucas. ej has possibilities left, but rafe is a huge disappointment. i have a sinking feeling the writers think he is the new bo. no way, jose.

August 14, 2012 at 3:56 pm
(46) Pam says:

I have watched DOOL since I’m old enough to remember there have been a lot of changes over the years. This latest shaky up is a lot happening at one time granted I have some very strong opinions about some of the changes, but we need to remember some of the actors leaving is their own choice.I wish all the actors leaving good luck I will especially miss the characters of Melanie and Bo. Bit I will be watching DOOL til the end.

August 15, 2012 at 10:18 am
(47) Debra says:

I am not sad to see Sara Brown go. I never saw the attraction that Brady supposedly had for her. Hate to be critical but with her thin, stringy hair and emaciated figure she did not have the polish of the other actresses. I have watched Days since 1980 and can’t believe Bo is leaving. I think he will probably be sorry. So many other long-time daytime actors and actresses have later said that they just couldn’t. Find work in prime time or movies. It seems like you never see them again unless they return to daytime, eg. Deidre and Drake. I’m not sorry to see Ian go — he is old-fashioned looking and just didn’t fit in on Days in my opinion.

August 15, 2012 at 10:32 am
(48) Terry says:

I have watched Days forever. Cannot figure out these writers. Bring Jack back and let him go? What are they thinking. Don’t miss Stefano at all. However it would be great if EJ turned out to be a Brady, how ironic would that be? Writers: Just leave things the way they are and continue on with the present story lines. Don’t get rid of Jack or Bo. If you do you might as well end the show.

August 15, 2012 at 3:18 pm
(49) Tisha says:

I am sooooo sad Jack is leaving!when along time ago us fans were so excited to see him come back to Days!Why is Jack always Leaving?Now Jennifer and Abby are going to whine that Jack Left them again!

August 15, 2012 at 3:27 pm
(50) tERESA says:

I have watched days since 1966. I hate the way they are killing off the stars. Too much, and I keep thinking about 9/11 and what must have gone on.
If it is going off the air, can’t they find a better way to end it?
I have done nothing but cry since Lexie and really don’t watch to cry all the time.
IF Bo goes, Jack’s gone, Stefano?Who is left?

August 15, 2012 at 9:08 pm
(51) susan says:

Just when the romance starts whith watching jeniffer and jack find thier way back to eachother you guys start to kill the goodness of the show like the way you killed off stephen. You people are killing off all the good actors. So why should I even care to watch this story !

August 15, 2012 at 10:20 pm
(52) Linda Mussa says:

Really sad to see Jack killed off.Matt Asford is a wonderful actor,the James Stewart of daytime.He was funny,serious,emotional,wide range of talent.Days writer,s better wake up,stop bringing these teeney bopper,s back,very boring.

August 16, 2012 at 12:56 pm
(53) lisa says:

Jack and Jennifer belong together. What was the point of bringing Jack back just for a short time and than have him killed off.Jack and Jennifer are a super couple just like Bo and Hope. What would it be like if Bo was killed off and Hope was still on the show. Days of our lives will never be the same . Very shocked and disappointed….

August 16, 2012 at 1:16 pm
(54) days+30 says:

it is a terrible mistake to kill Jack. There is no need to bring back Eric Brady; he’s been gone so long, who cares. Rafe has been tarnished permanently for his relationship with his itch sister-in-law. I hope there are NO plans to bring Carrie back. Carrie is un-interesting. Rafe and Carrie are boring and disgusting at the same time. Jack is a wonderful multi-dimensional character. Without him, Jennifer fades into the walls. I hope Jack comes back soon, rising from the ashes, just like Stefano.

August 16, 2012 at 2:17 pm
(55) Kellybelly says:

Absolutely disgusted by Ashfords departure. Why is Gabi still there? Daniel? Ian? If they had to do it, Reeves should’ve gone with. There’s no use for her otherwise. If she gets back with Daniel, I may actually, finally stop watching. After over 25 years. Maybe the writers were brought in for the purpose of taking another soap off the air. Definitely appears that way:(

August 16, 2012 at 4:23 pm
(56) Cindy says:

I’ve been watching Days since 1966.Please stop killing off the characters everyone loves. The ratings increased when the original characters were brought back into
the storylines and now you are killing them and writing them off the show. Do we have new writers again????????We love the original characters. We fell in love with them over the years and this is what made the show so endearing. What’s going on
writers???????????????????????????????????????????????

(57) Lovey says:

This is one of the more stupid moves DOOL ever made – getting rid of Jack yet again… The new writers should have blown up in the explosion – for taking Jack out again…. I have been watching this soap since the 60′s when I was in high school, and Jack & Jen have always been a great couple. I am so p/o’d about this – I just don’t have the heart to watch it anymore. Unless you idiot writers can figure out a way to bring Jack back – I probably will tune out for good. Between letting Bo go, and now Jack – I don’t think you guys kinow what the heck you are doing.

Get rid of bed-hopping Dr. “Dude” Daniel – that guy can’t keep his scrubs on… Still have it in for him (& the writers – grrrr) for throwing Chole under the bus. He was the one who raped her & took her away from Lucas. WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE THINKING???????

August 17, 2012 at 5:27 pm
(58) Tom says:

Bring back jack and leave Bo here. Bring jack back he’s the best and the reason I’m watching.but now no more. Get rid of the young boring teens like gabbi and will and sonny and all them.im happy Carrie gone her story with race was so awful it was so gross to watch. Bring jack back.

August 17, 2012 at 8:58 pm
(59) Peyton says:

I’ve been watching the show since I was 2 and I have always loved Jack. I don’t know what the writers were thinking to kill him off. Actually they obviously weren’t thinking at all. I really hope that they find a way to bring him back.

August 17, 2012 at 9:14 pm
(60) Ann says:

you guys want people to quit watching don’t you , yall start getting rid of peoples favorites and that’s what is going to happin.

August 17, 2012 at 11:22 pm
(61) bonnie says:

Might as well say goodbye to DOOL now-this story line is ridiculous. And do anything to keep Bo-he and Hopeare a major part of the show. Roman needs someone also-he, Bo and Rafe need a decent story line.
Mel and Chad need to be together, and they could have a geat story-Andrew could blackmail Gabi, and still terrorize Mel. Sami and EJ belong together-they could run DiMeara Enterprises-leave John to his business, along with Brady. But no-idiot writers have to come along and ruin everything-why not survey the fans and see what we want?

Love to see Jennifer and Daniel get back together!! Nicole/Daniel worst pairing ever they make me want to puke. Nicole is so pathetic! She is so needy and whiny. Jennifer and Daniel are so lovabel and great together. They have such electrify chemistry together. Loved watching them on their dates that they had before! Dannifer forever!!

August 19, 2012 at 5:57 pm
(64) Bev says:

Letting Jack go was the dumbest move of all!
Find a way to correct it before you lose all your fans.
These writers need to take lessons from the Brits and their soap operas…the shows are exciting, have new story lines and no one gets killed off just to feed a story….
What an atrocity this “gas explosion” was……never saw a serious emergency personnel down in the tunnels…only Melanie, Gabi,Chad,Brady and Andrew….
as Charlie Brown would say…”GOOD GRIEF”

After YEARS of not watching, I was so excited about the return of Matt Ashford. Now they are writing him out AGAIN. I’m done.

(66) Pam says:

I have read where Peter Reckells is leaving by his choice also Molly Burnetts Bo and Melanie are two of the characters I’m going to greatly miss.As far as Matt Ashford goes I will also greatly miss Jack butt not because I want him and Jennifer together. Was his departure by hos choice? A couple story lines I’d like to see happen is Brady being happy poor Brady the poor guy never has a chance at lasting happiness, come on writers let’s make him a major player!!!! My second choices of happiness is somebody great for Jennifer, maybe Frankie, come on writers let’s use some imagination and get this show going again and my last thong is Sami lets get her with somebody and let her be happy and grow old with that person, hopefully not EJ

August 20, 2012 at 2:33 pm
(67) Mrs. C. says:

Please bring Jack back!! He never got the chance to write John’s story (which he promised to do when John was in jail). Jack’s story line involving the veterans should have been explored further. Jack should never have been written out of “Days”. Find a way to bring him back!!!

i beleive he’ll be back someday when they bring them back again he probably got hurt and faked his death somehow, i know that he is supose to be in the morge but this show everybody comes back from the dead, i do hope they bring him back again someday cause i do love jack and jenn together. its sad when we want our favorite people together and they finally ae put together they are split up or get the ax or cheat on one another, i loved cloe and daniel together untill they ruined it with phillip and cloe then she ended up with his baby instead of daniels baby. but oh well i guess just keep bringing us our days and we will still keep watching it and be happy with it no matter what.

I have watched DOOL for many years I have seen many comings and goings that I didn’t necessarily like and a lot of the recent ones I don’t like either Were always free to voice our opinions, and I do quite frequently. Then I just sit back and see what happens,but matter what I will watch DOOL till the end.

Bring back Jack! I love Days and have been watching for years. Love the orig characters. Like Bo and Hope and Jen and Jack – they are supposed to stay together to keep the family thing going on. I know orig characters are getting older but they were the ones that made the show!!!!

Thank God Jack is gone! He is so corny and stupid! Thanks for getting rid of Austin too, he was sooo creepy! Goodbye Madison! Please get rid of Ian too! Please don’t bring back Nick’s FUG self, gag!
Bring back Kristen and Vivian!

Hope and Bo are boring
John and Marlena are boring
Jennifer is boring

The whole storyline is jacked up! Let people stay dead for more than a week! All that we have done lately is “mourn” people who aren’t really dead and watch Will decide whether or not he’s gay. Way to go DOOL, gotta appeal to the gay community? Crap move.

Y’all are making my head spin with the Sammi, Lucas, Rafe, EJ crap!
Quit making her a whore and let her be happy with someone!

We are seeing the same old story over and over and over and over. Dear new writers, Please do something to make DOOL better or else your show will go down the drain!

I was not pleased to see the new head writers finish off Jack’s
character where he can’t possibly come back. Most of Day’s lead
actors who are dismissed leave the show with the door left
open down the road. It won’t happen for Matt, who was the
more charasmatic and funny characters on the nbc soap.
You thought their ratings were low before, but with popular
figures like Jack and Melanie soon to be leaving, Days will
continue to see themselves on the bottom of fan ratings
every week. Good luck Matt, it was a great run. You should
do other comedy roles in major films.

Over this show, I liked GL. Stephano rising from the dead made me stop watching years ago. Cancel this show and bring Guiding Light back!

As a fan from the beginning of DAYS, I say BRING JACK BACK and stop writing him out of the show. It’s not DAYS with his character gone.

i agree CRJ this is a fantastic couple who gave us romantic comedic adventurous and tragic stories due to the very talented Matt and Melissa .i cant believe they just killed off half of such a fantastic couple !!!!! im still in shock !!! BRING BACK MATT ASHFORD AS JACK ON DAYS AND GIVE MELISSA AND MATT GOOD STORYLINES WHERE EVEN WHEN THEY WERE APART IN THEIR HEART THEY WERE TOGETHER .DONT LET THIS DUO STAY APART .
