Trivia

In September 2015, while reporting on the millions of Syrian migrants who were undergoing extreme hardships to get to safety in Europe, John Oliver and the other writers on Oliver's HBO show "Last Week Tonight" saw a news interview with an enthusiastic, bright, wheelchair-bound sixteen-year-old Syrian refugee named Noujain Mustaffa. Mustaffa said that she had learned English by watching her favorite TV show, Days of Our Lives, she was a particular fan of the relationship between Sami and E. J., and she wished that E. J. had not been killed off. In response, "Last Week Tonight" arranged for Days actors Alison Sweeney (Sami) and James Scott (E. J.) to film a scene for "Last Week Tonight" showing E. J. returning from the dead (after having been resurrected by a witch doctor). In the scene, Sami and E. J. briefly discuss E. J.'s return but then quickly move on to sympathizing with the plight of the Syrian migrants, making sure to work Noujain's name into their conversation multiple times. See more »

watch the Christmas show
7 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I started watching this regularly in the 1970s, but haven't watched in a decade or so. Now that I'm older, the melodrama, the snail's pace and the young actors aren't appealing. I LOVE this show because they bring back the veteran actors.

Anyway, when I remember, I watch the show on Christmas day. The characters used to gather round the tree and gaze at the ornaments with their names on them and reminisce.

I loved MacDonald Carey and Frances and miss their sense of stability on a show full of divorce, murder and mayhem. Nice contrast that's missing now.
