because they're good puppets - they listen to what those really controlling the story want. the story controllers say "put Dannifer front & center" and TomSell go "yes, master" and do as they're told.

Since Kristen Dimera's main rival is Marlena Evans Black....You would think she would be up on the list too. That plus Marlena is played by a soap icon named Deidre Hall, but nah.....They just throw us more Sami in jail and Dannifer scenes. No wonder this show has gone so far down in the ratings since May.

She was on less than 1/3 of the episodes, and half the time she was on for less 5 minutes in those episodes. Pop-up Hope indeed.

not to mention....
(i believe the amount of airtime in those episodes is part of my extended rant that i was too lazy to type out for yet another month.)




Jason - with guarantees, does Days have to pay the actors some sort of compensation if they don't come anywhere near their number (ex. their guarantee is 100 episodes, but they only appear in 60 episodes)??

That top 5 is exactly what's wrong with the show.

Also, as much as I hate to say it - MBE is recurring (even if she shouldn't be) and KA is contract - and they're in the same amount of episodes. Then we have Maxine, Bev, Rory, etc surpassing contracted vets. There was balance on this show three months ago, wasn't there? WTF?

I know it's one of my favorite things to bitch about, but 5 or 6 of the sets listed this month are that same damn ugly set with the gray walls, 2 doors, and window in the corner. It's Rafe's hospital room and everyone's office. I know budgets are tight, but come on! This looks just as cheap as the Horton Town Square Private Area with it's fake ivy and plastic leaves, which is anything but private.

Never thought I'd be upset with ED being at the top, but Kristen's sucked lately to me

Kristen sucks right now because all she's doing is running around trying to get Brady back and hoping that Eric hasn't remembered what she did to him. she's currently as pathetic a villain as EJ is. and this lack of proper villains is part of the problem. TomSell need to stop with the inane couple drama and put some adventure/mystery back into the show.

Yes, that's what a guarantee is. If a person is contracted to work 2 per week, then they are guaranteed payment for 100 episodes per year. Of course, the contract can be terminated every 13 weeks, so they are only on the hook for a 13-week cycle at a time.

I share your anger Deidre is in the same boat as Kristian now :(

ETA: At least when ED leaves it'll free up some airtime for other characters and with her gone I don't see Brady being on as much so thats two people that won't be hogging up the airtime... maybe we'll see more of them in the future :pray:

so basically, by severely underutilizing Kristian (since i find it hard to believe that her guarantee is at about 1), they're losing money. or at least not getting their money's worth.

i'm frustrated because it's been month after month of about 5 episodes. (she doesn't even average 7 episodes a month if you take her total & divide it by 8 months.)

i just want late October to get here already so i can see some consistency. (and maybe a bit more airtime within those episodes)

They are based on the actor's yearly contracts...not the calendar year. Kristian's first airdate (of her current contract( was May 6, 1994. So her contract cycles run from April to March each year (with airdates of roughly August to July each year). So actually her year was up in July.

She was in 51 episodes from August-Dec. 2012 and 50 episodes from Jan-July 2013, so she ended up with 101 episodes for her "year", meaning she has a 2-per week guarantee.
Since her new contract cycle just started with the episodes airing this month, that means Hope can be on roughly 100-105 episodes between August 2013 and July 2014 (unless her guarantee changes).
With her being in 5 episodes in August, that leaves around 95-100 episodes for her to appear in for the next 11 months (Sept. 2013-July 2014).

it is frustrating and it's even more frustrating when they're only on for about 5 min each in one or two scenes in those 5 episodes :frustration: ... and then we get stuck watching the same recycled storylines with the same characters being shoved down our throats day after day.... it's no wonder the ratings are what they are :shame:

unfortunately, i've gotten used to the 5 min thing. it frustrates me more when they're on but spend 1/2 their time in the background - Hope just standing there while Marlena hypnotized Sami, or Hope's 2 scenes before just being in the montage of Bernardi's memorial. and then there's disappearing after 45 min or the final scene looking as if it should have a continuation the next day but doesn't.
