      Speaking of hair in soaps, generally…maybe hairdos where the actors aren’t continually pushing their locks out of their faces and eyes?

    DAYS winning for music direction and composition for a daytime drama, I think DOOL’s background music is the worse of the 4 shows…

    I hate to say it, but DAYS OF OUR LIVES has HAD it’s day – Maybe it’s me, I know soaps are silly, and I’m not growing younger and I remember the good ole’ days of ALL MY CHILDREN – of course, as I said, I was younger and even though they were preposterous even then, I enjoyed them. Now, watching Days of Our Lives, it’s so ridiculous, or maybe in today’s modern high-tech World it just doesn’t make it – and the writing on Days is just awful. How it got nominated for anything is in itself a wonder.

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…)
