No matter what you think, I DO love you.

Thanks for another great interview. And welcome back Mr John Black. With each passing interview I get more excited for the story they're going to be telling :)

Greg Meng has introduced me to someone at Days of Our Lives that is a social media expert.
LOL! I hope he doesn't mean Sweeney!

This is an excellent interview and finally a few little tidbits about what is going on. It all sounds good. I can't wait to see if all this hype is as good as they want it to be!

Thanks for the interview, Lysie!

Look at you, Daytime Royalty! Moving on up! Great interview.

The show has been on the air for 45 years because you have a core audience thats really emotionally attached to the show and to certain characters. When you turn that TV set on, another things happens. Other people walk through the room, and they say, Hey, Grandma. Hey, Mom. What are you watching? And as long as that set is on, thats how you get the younger demographics. I think weve been neglecting the core audience for a long period of time. Its time to bring them home. Bring them back into the fold.


This is so true. I'm the 4th generation in my family stuck on this show. It started with my great-grandma, then my grandma, then my mom, and now me. It's a vicious cycle.

Thank you Thank you.. Wonderful Interview.
Im so in Love with Drake/aka John Black
I love EVERYTHING he said, loved the way he breaks it down and lets us in, And I am excited he will be jining Twitter and Facbook YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY..
Also I thought it spot on how he said.. Its easier to write for the Villian.. For the Hero you have to dig deep and find and playout the Layers.. THATS why John Black is the Ultimate hero... They wrote him with Layers, and He knew how to express them wonderfully.

Im So Excited !!

Wow! Good job Lysie and DR. What a fab interview. Loved the outside forces which I'm assuming are Stefano, who has been waiting for John. Loved the 4 couples umbrella thing although I hate to think of Safe as the fourth couple, something about them not belonging with the likes of Jarlena, Caustin, J&J, something tells me they will be the fourth.

Wonderful! I'm so glad he's back, and I LOVE that there will be an umbrella story. I hope it's like 1986 when all the stories were so interesting and merged together and I could barely wait for the next day to find out what would happen next. Thanks!

Thanks Lysie. You did a great job. Your interview is full of good bits and not all fluff.

I love John Black. Drake has always been so loyal to DOOL. Glad he's coming back and I can celebrate the show having a real hero again.

Now if I can just wait til the crap stories are over to get to the good stuff.

Yay! I'm glad he's happy with the material so far. I'm crossing my fingers that his return is really his return and somewhat separate from Marlena. I realize they're married, but his character took such a beating in the past... it's be nice to see Drake in scenes with more than just a handful of people. I miss when this show felt like a town and not just a room.

Although he's not focusing on Brady, he's not just going to ignore the guy. We already saw Brady all clean-cut and with a suit, meeting in his office aka The Brady Pub w/Madison.
That describes every guy on the show, both white and dark.

Fenderbabe, that's very true. I hope he's not just coming back as an appendage for Marlena either and that the show allows them to be separate character and not just johnandmarlena as one unit.

i'm only sad he's only had 1 scene so far with Brady :( I was really hoping they'd get some good scenes together from the start.

Congrats Lysie on the excellent interview.

At least Drake is saying (mostly) the right things...

It was only supposed to go from February sweeps to May sweeps. It was going to be a very short run, but a powerful run.


I didn't know this, glad they realized the potential and made it something more.
