    I love it when any soap, whether I watch it or not, is able to hit such a milestone. DAYS is going all out in promoting their 50th by starting a year ahead of its actual anniversary. It certainly is a great money-making plan. Their 50th anniversary magazine came out with a lot of pictures and information that stopped short of this past year. Now comes another book and I can’t help wondering how short o the 50th it will come. I’m really not complaining, because I gobble it all up. But I do wonder why they couldn’t have put things in the next memory book that encompasses the 50th year of the show? That would have felt more complete to me; not a celebration of 49 years, but 50.

    Went to pigeon forge for the book signing . It was very disappointing due to the lack of organization and nothing was ever mentioned that you had to have a ticket to get in to see the cast. We stood on line for five hours to be turned away. I would like to say a huge ty to (on screen names)hope ,Kate and Lucas. I have to say Lucas was awesome! Me vice president was awesome as well he was very appreciative of the fans. I have watched for 39 years and Peter Reckell has always been the person I wanted to meet but from what I could peek and see maybe I am glad I didn’t!

    Going to the one in Bethesda, MD on Tuesday but there are only 5 cast members and all the other signings have so many more including my favorite characters. I have always wanted to visit the set or meet them on tour. Do you know if there will be any coming in 2015/2016? I would be thrilled just to visit the set or have a meet in greet. I’m 44 and have been watching since I was 10.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)

Kyle took to social media sharing a video message on his arrival back in Salem expressing: “BEYOND excited to be rejoining my Days of our Lives family. See y’all soon!” SOD first reported the casting news. (more…)
