I like Days and glad it won but if you havent seen all the soaps on the list you really cant pick the best out of them…


Yes, I participated and am an avid Days watcher, but voted for OLTL. I’m happy Days won if OLTL couldn’t win. These days, DAYS is HOT HOT HOT!!!!


Don’t get me wrong, there’s something special about every soap opera. There’s something extraordinary about the whole genre. But Days of Our Lives is not the best soap opera of all time. The official Days of Our Lives facebook page sent out a call for all the fans to vote. DOOL was the only soap in the whole poll to do that and that is how they won every round of the poll. Without question, had Y&R, GH, or B&B done that, DOOL wouldn’t have won a single round. And if the official One Life to Live page had done that, OLTL would have won the entire poll. But alas, that’s not what happened, and so DOOL won the poll. Yet there is something so exceptional about the soap that made it to the final round without even being on the air.

I agree, if DOOL fans hadn’t flooded the vote, OLTL would have won. It deserved to win best soap. It was consistently great story telling.


. Until NBC posted on FB for their fans to vote, it was neck to neck. ABC and Prospect Park didn’t care


Totally agree!


Pointless Poll. Wow an active soap beats a canceled soap.


I agree it was pointless. Any “brackett” poll is unfair and unreliable.

If they really want to get a true (or at least somewhat more accurate) poll, it needs to be a straight-out “vote for your favorite,” include every soap, and then be well publicized for all soap viewers to have the chance to vote.


foretelling: Days Of OUR Lives – repeat Emmy Winner – Best Serial

I am rabid – LOL

soap box that

Have watched Days from the beginning and it will always be the “best daytime drame” with the best actors in television.


Thank You… I so agree with you.

it’s often times hard to explain why…. DAYS is better than the other 4…. given how the “other” three are so heralded…..

blah, blah, blah….

CBS – get over yourself…. after today…. sink…. never was #1 in my book
GH…. yikes… dote on about FV and RC… and the yawn 50th

DAYS – Sony – NBC : has made DOOL… must see….

everything about their product…. production is superlative… for the last 2 years… steamy and ALL !!!!

giddy DAYS! lovin it

they take such care… in hiring good actors…. (I digress some… w/Daniel and Gabs) but… they nevertheless fit – Jenn makes me ad nauseum, grans jewel

quality actors who shine… even in lackluster times… and it’s above board and on par expertise showcase

I’m loving the horizon…. with Kristen, Eve… and a must is more Shane and Kimberly

tantalizing stuff…..

now… let’s see more Justin, Adrienne, and Kayla… and i’ll soapbox that much more

truly the best cast who are an act unto themselves


Don’t Bring Jill Farren Phelps


Congrats Days! Love them all.


The parade poll sounds rigged but who cares it’s a supplement to a newspaper and a bad one at that…


The right soap won!!! #DAYSOFOURLIVES


Maybe that is because people could vote countless times. I ignored the poll once I realized this.


I’m really happy that DOOL got this recognition. While OLTL was my favorite of the two, DOOL comes in such a close second that it doesn’t matter to me.
And I think both soaps are similar, in that both shows have, at times, been treated like the ugly stepchild, while both shows have also shown good quality over extended periods that are recognized by the fans but not always by the press or TPTB.

IMO, DOOL has stayed truer to the core soap values that drew me in to soaps to begin with, qualities that GH and Y&R only sporadically celebrate anymore.

I hope ALL the remaining shows continue on as long as possible and continue to grow stronger. I’ll miss OLTL and AMC always, but having DOOL around makes me one happy soap fan.


Yes, I participated, but I voted for OLTL. Miss it soooo very much and yes…….I still watch the old video on youtube. Still love John McBain & Natalie Buchanan and Rex & Gigi.

Boo! However congrats to Days!


I love One Life to Live. Fans voted for OLTL to show that it is still beloved and we want it back. We voted to show we still care. But ABLSleaze and Propect Park did nothing to help the voting while NBC did.
I only watched OLTL AMC and GH . I used to watch some very old soaps no longer on the air, but don’t want to start watching any I have not seen before. I beg PP or ABC or some other entity to bring back our AMC ad OLTL. At the very least one of those channels like TV Guilde take over the old shows Soapnet Re-ran.

OLTL is the best soap. I enjoy some of the others, but they will never be as good as One Life to Live. No contest.

ABC really goofed. They need to bring it back.


KUDOS TO OLTL!! 2nd place is still great!


I voted for Days in the final round. Days is kicking ass . Love it.

#OLTL will always be my favorite soap. I’ve watched since the beginning. When you invest that much time into a soap (I’ve watched All My Children since day 1 too), it’s devastating to lose. #OLTL was the red headed stepchild in the ABC lineup for years and to have it place second in this poll and to be ranked higher than any other ABC soap is testament to how wonderful the show is. It taught me tolerance as a young girl from a rich lilly white town that didn’t know the difficulties and experiences of others except through those I saw in Llanview.

Much changed through the 43 1/2 years in Llanview but it was always the same in that it was there for me every weekday. I still hope that one day it will be there for me and all the other One Lifers again.


congrats days you did it i’m so proud of you


All of the networks should look at this and realize that OLTL should still be on the air!!!
