Days Of Our Lives

DAYS ratings up to #3 & OLTL with stunning week of eps loses ground!

Oh what a bizarre and sometimes unexplainable mess the daytime ratings are  especially when a show is on fire and it is not quantifying in numbers.

On-Air On-Soaps has to tell you that of all the soaps the week of Oct 18-22nd and continuing on through this week, the one that got our attention has been One Life to Live. Every day has been riveting drama at it’s best, and yet the sole east coast sudser fell back to 6th in the ratings with a loss of 97,000 viewers. On the contrary, Days of our Lives is having a bit of a ratings resurgence as the only soap to gain viewers with 118,000 and ending up in third.  Every other soap lost viewers last week.   Here is how the line-up from Soap Opera Network after the jump!

Ratings for the week October 18-22, 2010

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,862,000 (-169,000/-192,000)
2. B&B 3,187,000 (-28,000/-54,000)
3. DAYS 2,531,000 (+118,000/-471,000)
4. GH 2,380,000 (-144,000/-185,000)

    The ratings system is as old and unreliable as a rotary phone. It is time to find a way to let all of us who enjoy our shows to be counted. If that were possible, ATWT, GL and AW would still be on the air.

    If we can put TV shows on a Ipod, then those in TV can come up with a new way to count how many viewers watch their shows.

      Are Canadian viewers counted? I prv OLTL on my pc, but if i miss recording it, i use youtube (it has a OLTL channel) later in the day to see it. I would use if Canadians were allowed to stream it.

    I am so happy that DAYS ratings are up. They are the best daytime drama and are only up because EJ is out of the coma. The storylines are much more interesting and I am loving this sarcophagus storyline. GO EJ AND GO DAYS!!!!!

    I’m a true Ejami fan, so DOOL ratings going up is a plus, but I don’t think OLTL will suffer. OLTL story lines are more than compelling to carry their torch. With Todd and Tea back together, The Ford brothers, and Shawn and Destiny finally getting their own storyline…I will always watch OLTL. Plus there is so much more that has my anticipation high. Like Dorian and David. Clint and everything crazy he is doing. I can’t wait to see Matthew tied in with Destiny. Jessica and Natalie real babies father reveal…I can go on and on.
    I’m not surprised that DOOL came back swinging. James Scott aka Ej DiMera is hypnotizing. I love Sami because his love for her is so strong, so I can’t hate her.

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…)
