Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – Exec Producer Pushes Peacock Move
Ken Corday, executive producer of Days Of Our Lives, seeks to make the move from NBC to Peacock sound like a win-win for the show, cast, and viewers. And he insists that everyone will benefit. But Corday also spilled an unexpected twist, as the print edition of Soap Opera Digest just revealed.
Looking ahead, the Days Of Our Lives executive producer promised that the show will not change. But he then added, “And it will be better.” However, Corday defended the shift to Peacock. And he insisted that the contract included the possibility during last year’s renewal.
“The network always had the right to migrate the show exclusively to Peacock,” shared the Days Of Our Lives executive. “And now they’ve decided to do so, and we’re excited. The bottom line is, this is the future. Whether people believe it now, or in a year or two, this is the future of first-run dramatic television. Let’s just hope the migration is wonderful and our loyal viewers stick with us and subscribe.”
Days Of Our Lives – Fans SLAM Ken Corday: Here’s Why!
When Ken Corday decided to chat about the move, he might want to have gotten one of his own writers to help with his quotes. Because social media slammed him for some of his rude remarks in his interview. For instance, Corday took on a condescending tone. And he implied that anyone older will not follow Days Of Our Lives to Peacock.

““It’s still Days of our Lives but it’s not your mother’s Days of our Lives,” stated Corday. The quote blew up on social media. And it quickly earned the executive producer slams. For instance, one Twitter viewer responded, “Maybe Mr. Corday should remember that all us old moms are the ones who kept this soap going all these years. Been a loyal follower for over 30 years.”

And others slammed the executive producer for assuming that fans will automatically start paying to view Days of Our Lives. For example, one viewer shared on Reddit, “I’m sorry but I have pets I have to feed. I’m not paying even one more dime to watch Days or any other friggin’ tv show. Especially when I’ve been watching it for free for 57 years now. I stopped watching the day they announced this ridiculousness.”
Corday also faced a backlash for mocking those who predicted that Days Of Our Lives will get cancelled. In response to the exec producer labeling them “bottom feeders,” some fans even decided to cancel the show on their own. For instance, one retorted, “His attitude makes me not want to watch it anymore.”

CORDAY DOESNT CARE ABOUT THE OLDER FANS EVEN THOUGH THEY R THE ONES WHO KEPT DAYS GOING, IT IS WEREN’T LFOR THE MOTHERS AS HE SAID THAT WATCHED DAYS LOYALLY, IF IT WERENT FOR THEM DAYS COULD HAVE BEEN GONE, BUT THEY R THE ONES WHO MADE DAYS POPULAR, IF THEY DID NOT LIKE IT IT WOULD NOT STILL BE ON, NOW THEY R TAKING IT AWAY FROM LOYAL FANS WHO CAN NOT AFFORD THE EXTRA MONEY, WHETHER IT IS 4,99 OR 9,99. MAYBE THEY R ON A TIGHT BUDGET AND CAN’T AFFORD THE EXTRA MONEY,. THE FANS IN CANADA HAVE TO PAY EXTRA BESIDES THE COST. AS I SAID THEY DONT CARE
I ‘ve been watching Spenc
I any way I wanted to say I’ve watched sense High School. I won’t let 4.99 stop me now. I realize so of you can’t and I m sorry! A FAITHFUL FAN NOW DONT MAKE BEN SO SLIMY….PLEASE
I thank we all should delete this show now. To HEEL to the show. Older viewer.
It’s very upsetting and it’s a kick in the butt to fans. I will NOT pay to watch it. I feel bad for the actors most of all.
i was going to stop watching this show any way, with the ridiculous story line of the devil and bringing people back from the dead, face masks! I think all the writers need to be fired!!!
No, I won’t pay extra for peacock, I perused the site when Days made the announcement, and other than days there was not one other show that was of interest to me. I already pay for different sites I like. I don’t need to add peacock for just one program. Over the years many shows that I loved were cancelled, I got over it, and truly can’t even remember what they were.
Started watching DOOL in 1965 when it premiered and I was a Senior High School student depending on my Mom to watch daily and let me know what was going on. Watched it every day out of school and in summer just like my Mom did. Mr. Corday’s disdain for the older viewers is insulting and I suggest he take a look at his identification and have someone calculate HIS age if he has forgotten. At the age of 74 and a second-generation fan who passed on the loyalty to a 3rd and, now, 4th generation, I am disappointed that my loyalty to this program is not reciprocated by the producers by even a small proportion. Shame on them all. I will no longer view the show on Peacock nor will I view any other program offered by that service. I know it matters very little to those in power, but I have also removed the current NBC channel from my cable favorites scroll feature.
How dare he act like that. Who does he think he is to speak his audience that way.
I have not had cable for years and watch all of my shows on apps like Paramount Plus. I have saved a ton of money doing this and have had the Paramount Plus app since it came out. I got tires of cable companies going up every year and charging too much. This man had no right speaking to NBC viewers like that and NBC should fire him.
Well said, couldn’t agree more !
Corday has the typical “Big Elite Corporation” attitude. He is basically saying that the Peacock move is catering to the “younger” generation and that older long time fans are no longer the target audience they desire or care about. I may be wrong but I believe this has to do with the content on the show. Days has become very progressive in the storylines in the past 5 years. I don’t think Day’s writer’s and producers want to hear complaints about some of the controversial relationships and issues that they tell on the show. Moving to Peacock streaming will target a young group of people that won’t complain and are okay with these types of changes. Corday is of the mindset older people will NOT watch streaming and they are okay with that. Like I said this is just my opinion.
I really do not think DOOL has younger viewers!
Daytime soap operas use to be watched during the day, now we ALL tape it and watch our friends on
DOOL. Goodbye friends on Sept 12th – ridiculous to pay an ongoing television show – pay for a movie, or special event makes sense, but not for an everyday tv show. It’s bad enough we have to pay to get basic TV
Last week I read that one of the considerations in making this move is that DOOL rating were the lowest of the 4 remaining Soaps on television. If they wanted to raise the ratings, they should have changed the writing staff. I know the powers that be and an Emmy award went for the crazy devil story, All I saw online were comments from viewers refusing to watch during that storyline time. I know I did. Perhaps an award is more important to DOOL executives than ratings and viewer’s concerns but this is what you get. Moved to a venue that we loyal fans of 57 years will not be able to watch. We have been loyal and now you discount our financial situations in our older years.
I will never stop watching Days. This is the future of TV it’s the 2020’s not the 1960’s we have to move with the times.
I will never stop watching Days. This is the future of TV it’s the 2020’s not the 1960’s we have to move with the times. If it’s a duplicate copy people need to see it again.
Bottom feeders… will not subscribe!
KEN CORDAY ….. your parents are rolling over in their graves….. you took their dreams and livelyhood away….. I always knew you were a spoiled rotten kid and the proof in in the way you have treated the loyal viewers….. most of the viewers that have watched this show have watched it for free for their entire lives, NOW YOU want to charge them money to watch it ….. why couldn’t you have put it on regular Pecock for free ????? OOPS, I forgot you are a money hungry, spoiled rotten brat ….. May you go to HELL a BROKE, SPOILED ROTTEN POS …..
I have watched DOOL since 1989 and on Sept 12 2022 I will stop watching it. I refuse to pay for watching a soap opera as I pay for my cable already and get to DVR and On Demand so not interested in streaming. Good Bye Days it was good while it lasted
I have been watching DOOL from day 1. College, marriage,as well raising a family I am now 81 on a fixed income, but sad to say goodbye. I cannot afford to pay for this programming going forw ard. This is a poor and selfish way to say thank you to devoted fans. Move to Peacock fine, but at NO cost . Greedy Stop and think it’s the original viewers that supported DOOL. It was good while it lasted. Phoenix will not rise again in my household
Ken Corday, dool, announced a special agreement with Peacock which is the $4.99 per month charge for $ 1.99 per month or $19.99 yearly. How does one process to get this offer? offer is only good to apply for in the month of September.
Writing in demonic possession, LGBTQ fun, reanimating the dead….what; no vampires? Hey SNL fans, you’re next!
I have watched Days Of Our Lives for years and years…..I am 80 years old now, but am not subscribing to
Peacock. Its very annoying for us older folks, which I believe is the primary audience for this show. Anyway, I
wanted to see Sarah and Zander get back together and now they have so I think its a good time to end my
viewing of the show — sadly. I’ll just have to keep checking to see who really killed Abigale, but will no longer
be a regular viewer! So, here’s farewell to my long-time show!!!!!!j PAS
