    I won’t get too excited about this, look at what the casting department brought us with the teen set. Nightmare.

    Seems like Days has near a whole new cast…
    I see someone coming or going, often..

    She is either an ex girlfriend of Rafe or maybe the daughter of Deimos..maybe both…i love the diversity here but i would like to see more Paul…and what happened to Maxine?-i liked her too.

      Hi, Jummy,
      If ‘Bianca’ is Deimos’s daughter, then her mother must be Hispanic because she does not look Greek, at all. But, as I always say, anything is possible…..look at Luca over at Y&R. He does not have the look of a Spaniard.
      I suppose she must have familial, or friendship ties to someone in Salem. Isn’t that the way it works? She is so pretty….she will be placed smack in the middle of some kind of cat-fight-envy.
      I was also thinking that her appearance may have nothing to do with family? Perhaps, she is in Salem to represent some couturier’s name; or as a designer model come to work for Theresa, Nicole and Kate (BASIC BLACK). Later, my friend.

        She does look like a model…so you could be right.

    Another one of Eddie’ daughters? Wives? How about Rafe’s ex? Anything or anyone to put a wedge between Rafe and Hope works for me.

      Hey, CeeCee…I hear ya’!!!!! More and more, watching Rafe and Hope even interacting with each other is more effective than A-N-Y sleeping pill…LOL!!!!! For me, it’s like YAWN-VILLE all the way…MORE LOL!!!!! Truly lame.

      Later, my friend. P-e-a-c-e.

        Hello, there,
        This woman is supposedly a grandmother. Her escapades are indicative of a juvenile. And, I do not buy this arduous and intrepid search for revenge. She should have known better than to think that Bo, the love of her life, and vice versa, would not have just up and left, and not come back. Neither do I find feasible that Bo would ask Rafe to look after Hope. I said this before, Rafe and Bo barely knew each other; plus, Hope has plenty of relatives and close friends on both sides, to have assumed such a responsibility. She is a darned adult, for Petey sake….there are plenty of women whose husbands have left or died. I can understand emotional support, but to forge on and act outside the law as an accomplice is stupid fora a cop. Not that Stefano did not deserve it; but Hope needs mental help. Rafe cannot see this? A well-trained detective. Bah!!!! Lol. Bo wasn’t even her husband….so, all contrived. If the soap gods wanted Rafe and Hope together, they could have achieved that goal another way… that made more sense. Is it just me that feels this way? If that is the case, someone, please make me understand the error of my ways and set me straight. Lol. Later, Jay.

      January 29, 2016 at 7:34 pm

      CeeCee…I feel the same way as you do. Yes. To me, Rafe and Hope have ZERO chemistry together!!!!! For me, it’s like MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP!!!!! TOTAL BLECH ALL THE WAY!!!!!!

      Take care, CeeCee. P-e-a-c-e.

    She’s beautiful and can act!! No speak English?

      She actually speaks good English, has no Colombian accent! She’s been in many Latin soap operas and she’s an amazing actress… Colombia has many beautiful women and she happens to be one of them.

      I just wonder why her name isn’t Blanca? Bianca is an Italian name. It would be more fitting, si? They did the same at Y&R. Luca Santori? That’s as an Italian name as one can get….not, Spaniard.
      If she is bound to stay on board, I just hope her acting is as good as her looks, 4ever.

      • 4ever DAYS

        January 29, 2016 at 7:56 am

        Her name is Blanca, CeeCee. Yahoo TV made the error which MFS must have trusted to be fact.

        It’s a fact that I knew Bianca had to be Italian because of the Tate-LaBianca murders…Horrible way to learn things.

      • CeeCee

        January 29, 2016 at 9:05 am

        Oh, ok, 4ever. The names do mean the same thing, “White”…. Also, the French translation is “Blanche”….very similar languages. I was actually trying to make the point that if the character is purported to be Hispanic, then, the name should match to avoid confusion. Thanks and later, my friend.

    So another new character???? what the what??? who is writing this’s really taken a turn around….you have characters to write for, ex. Abe and his new daughter….Paul…these characters are at least tied to long time family and longtime characters….how bout getting back to “family” oriented stories????? get rid of Phillip and Belle…story not working…..lose Ava….please update Patch’s look….and stop focusing so much on the teens that cannot act and cannot carry a story… least nobody died this week…hahaha…

      That’s funny, Scott…you made me chuckle.

      I know…they have talented actors who play Justin, Adrienne and Lucas but cant write for them or rarely even show them but gives stories to newbies…they wont make a new soap but find ways to make old ones into new ones.

    maybe she’s the daughter in law of Eduardo…

    Jordi Vilasuso, (Rafe brother’) ex-wife ?

    DAYS currently has so much going on and many characters who don’t have story, so why do they feel the need to bring on more newbies? In general, I like new characters who have ties to core families, but we already have characters like Lucas, Adrienne, Justin, Abe and Lani who don’t have story.

    The new teen set is taking up lots of screen time and most of them cannot act, nor carry the show’s story. It’s so odd watching Ciara, Claire, etc. party and whine about things and then jumping to scenes with long-time characters and actors who can actually act. I mean, on the days of Daniel’s death story, we had the teen scene playing truth or dare for god sake!

    Moreover, the show has lost stellar actors like Daniel Cosgrove, Kassie DePaiva, Greg Vaughan (and others who didn’t leave of their own volition) to make room for these newbies. And there are still new characters to be introduced! Real Andrews, Alla Korot and Jordi Vilasuso have yet to make their debuts, Vincent Irizzary was just introduced, and so many characters have been brought back, like Shawn, Belle, Philip, Chloe, etc.

    It just seems like there’s way too much going on for DAYS to add more new characters to its seemingly never ending cast.

    Too many newbies Days, I know it’s to help budget but it’s going to suck with so many newbies and killing so many off.

    Look forward to seeing her on. Glad Days is bringing in a more multi-cultural cast. They should have more black actors as well. Of course, they should bring back gay storylines too!

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…)
