I couldn’t believe a network didn’t carry the Emmy broadcast. Granted, on line, everyone can say what they want, which was entertaining. However, it doesn’t do justice to all of the daytime TV community. Millions of people watch these shows and I think the entertainment industry underestimates the contribution of daytime actors. For the producers to leave it in the hands of those morons on the red carpet was insulting.

Thanks so much Michael! Loved this interview! Almost called in myself but honestly didn’t think I’d be able to talk, lol.

Yes, big congrats to Eric and Eileen, so happy they won! I was rooting for them. I watched Passions for nearly it’s entire run (minus the last year, though I’ve since watched most of it on youtube) and it’s been awesome to see Eric as Brady. He’s great in the role, and I do agree he got even better last year. I also have watched Days since the mid-90s, and was thrilled Eileen won. I’ll say that generally when I watch award shows I don’t really care who wins except under certain conditions. And after Eileen and Eric’s performances last year on Days I really thought they deserved to win, especially Eileen though b/c of the “yelling at Jesus” scene alone, lol.

Kristen’s return really did provide Days a MUCH needed shot in the arm. They had been floundering before that for a while (imho).

Anyway to the Award Show itself, the Red Carpet was horrific! My roommate watched a bit with me and she asked me, “Are you sure you want to watch this? These girls are terrible.” I can’t even believe that was allowed. Now I will say they were not terrible with everyone, just most everyone. And the girls inside were not as bad as the ones on the carpet (and for some reason the girls in the black dresses were worse than the two in the white). But when they asked Joe Mascolo what made him legendary, it was a real “oh hell no” moment. I’m 27, so not much older than them, and the whole situation just made me really sad.

The awards itself though were pretty nice! Without a doubt the best in many years. I really hated the Vegas awards and the HLN were worse. Loved Kathy Griffin making fun of the Robin Meade country singing & that stupid couch, so bad!

One final note, I’m a bit upset by how Days handled Chandler Massey’s win. Not only did someone provide the wrong clip (intentional or not), but they also never congratulated him on FB! Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things but come on, at least act appropriately given that he played a pivotal role for several years. And this is not coming from a Will or Wilson superfan, but just from a regular superfan of Days who thinks Guy Wilson is doing great (better with Sonny than Chandler) but also thinks Days needs to treat their actors with decency and not anger/spite.

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…)
