The Days of Our Lives Trivia

Critics were originally very kind to the Days of Our Lives for accurately depicting real life situations of typical American families. They also complimented the series for pioneering the depiction of controversial modern day subjects such as mixed race couples and high tech methods of pregnancy including artificial insemination. Critics often referred to the series as the most daring drama of the 1970s!

When the show branched out into supernatural storylines, however, the critics were not kind. Most felt that the Days of Our Lives went from one of the most socially responsible shows on daytime TV to the bottom of the barrel due to this change in format. Viewers apparently didn't agree however as Days of Our Lives soon climbed in the ratings.

There was a pilot episode that was produced to sell the series which never aired. Actress Mary Jackson who is best known for her role as Emily Baldwin on "The Waltons" played the role of Alice Horton in that pilot but was replaced by Frances Reid when the Days of Our Lives premiered.

The episodes were preserved on kinescopes and later videotape from the very beginning and that gives the series the distinction of having more recorded episodes than any other series in the world.

The Days of Our Lives' episodes were 30 minutes in length from 1965-1975 and then expanded to one hour.

When Frances Reid passed away in February of 2010, Susan Seaforth Hayes became the only remaining cast member who has appearing on the series since its premiere. She is also the only cast member to appear during all six decades that the Days of Our Lives has been on the air!

The opening titles at the beginning of each episode have been narrated by MacDonald Carey for the entire run of the series.

In July of 2001, NBC became the first network to broadcast daytime shows with closed captioning in Spanish. In addition to Days of Lives, "Passions" also provided this service at that time.

As of the year 2010, the State that the series is set in has never been revealed!
