There is good news and bad news for Days of our Lives fans this week. First the bad news. At the end of the week, on July 27, 2012, Days of our Lives goes on hiatus for two weeks while NBC telecasts their London Olympics coverage.
The good news however, is that episodes of Days of our Lives screening this week were penned by the new Tomlin and Whitesell writing team. So not only do the new writers want to leave fans on the edge of their seats for the two week break, but they are positioning their new storylines.
