If they actually gave Ashley Abbott(ED) some good story arcs for once, then I'd be less sad if we lost Kristen on Days.
I don't watch Y&R so no amount of storyline for Ashley would make me feel better about losing Kristen for good, lol.

I do think Eileen will eventually end up back on Y&R. It's kind of inevitable. I'll be disappointed when it happens, but more than anything I'll just be grateful I got to see her in the role of Kristen again -- something I thought would never happen -- and I'll be glad I get to cut this show loose for good.
Love Ashley but I love Kristen more! I just started back watching Days again and I really enjoy Kristen. What a kick!

As long as Eileen stays on DAYS I'm happy with her appearing on Y&R for a few episodes.

Sony wants ED on Days more. Initially she was supposed to be shared between the two shows but Y&R refused to share and Sony ended ED's contract with Y&R.

If Y&R wants ED back for more than a guest spot then they're going to have to share her with Days.
It's quite shocking actually that Y&R was not willing to share, yet DAYS was....Y&R really gambled in that and ended up losing her completely.
Thank god MAB was in charge and not Josh Griffith and JFP. Or this would have never happened. The only saving grace here is that Sony has to know that ED is much more important to DAYS than Y&R, at this point.

I think Sony is well aware of that...ED is more valuable to DAYS and Kristen is a much more marketable character...I think Sony sees that.

ED is a Y&R original...so of course she is going to love being there...its her daytime home...but there is no denying the impact she has made in daytime is BECAUSE of her DAYS role...she knows that and so does Sony.

She truly is a household name in daytime BECAUSE of Kristen & DAYS...not because of Ashley & Y&R.

Yeah, my only hope is that - since Sony holds the cards - they keep her primarily at Days. I am relieved that Sony is in charge - not Y&R executive producers. Sony can always override CBS executive producers if they tried to steal Eileen full-time. If Sony stops stepping in, you can bet ED will be back to Y&R before you can say "Ashley Abbott".

Oh, and kudos to NBC for being classy about the episodes. Because CBS certainly hadn't exuded the same class to us.

Eileen Davidson was basically gifted to DAYS in this exchange so I think it would have been a really terrible move for Corday or NBC or whoever to not let her go back to Y&R for a few episodes, especially during a dark week. So I'm glad they did, but they didn't REALLY have the option to say no. I do wish DAYS would ask for something in return at some point though, whenever Y&R is dark. It would have to be a lawyer or judge or something, but they should do it just to create a buzz that the shows are sharing. They do go head-to-head in my market though so not sure how that would really work out.

I agree! DAYS has been unusually accommodating to the Bell soaps over the last decade without much getting anything in return.

Either Corday has a soft spot for those shows or Sony forced their hand and we just don't know about it.

Y&R has a 3-week turnaround...I think it is the shortest in daytime...

DAYS is over 3 months now...but whatever keeps you on the air I guess.

Corday Productions owns a small percentage of YR.

She must've forgotten what it was like to be on a show with decent hair and makeup people and a wardrobe budget of more than $5, LoL.

Nothing would make me happier than to see Days overtake Y&R in the ratings.
