Days of our Lives anniversary week is being capped-off with news from Nielsen Media Research, and in a press release from NBC, touting the 50-year-old drama’s current success!

For the week of November 2- 6, DAYS delivered its most-watched week in 20 months averaging 2,721,000 million viewers for the ratings week.   That performance is only bested by the week of February 17-21, 2014 where the show averaged 2.836,ooo viewers.

In addition, week to week, DAYS grew +10% in women 18-49 (0.87 vs. 0.79 for the week of Oct. 26-30) and +11% in women 18-34 (0.52 vs. 0.47).  Versus the same week last year, DAYS was up +15% in total viewers (2.721 million vs. 2.373 million for the week of Nov. 3-7, 2014), up +49% in women 18-34 (0.52 vs. 0.35), up +6% in women 18-49 (0.87 vs. 0.82) and up +12% in women 25-54 (1.18 vs. 1.05).

In results for the 2015-16 season thus far, DAYS ranks #5 among network daytime series in both the women 18-49 and women 18-34 demos.

With Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove) and Hope’s (Kristian Alfonso) wedding, as Bo (Peter Reckell) attempts to get back to Salem,  the Bicentennial celebration, and Abigail  (Kate Mansi) learning Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the necktie serial killer, the series was firing on all cylinders.  We anticipat next week’s ratings for this week’s airshows, where Bo and Hope see each other again for the first time in 3 years or more, will also garner some very high numbers!

So, what do you think about DAYS rating performance?  Is it the best daytime drama on television right now?  Did DAYS knock it out of the park for their 50th anniversary?  Are you surprised at the numbers?  Share your thoughts below!

HI, Mary. Sounds reasonable and reprehensible, at the same time. I am as suspicious as you are, but not comparable to what was done to Will. From what I gathered, Peter does not want to be part of the show. There were probably many negotiations going on behind the scenes. But, I believe, Guy was just thrown under the bus without much notice. As far as I’m concerned, Guy/Will was stabbed in the back, as it were. I read all these comments about ‘haters hating on Will’ ( which is one of the worst grammatically incorrect expressions in existence). No… Read more »

too bad daniel cosgrove was sacrificed for peter reckalls temporary return,,, imo daniel cosgrove s mezmorizing portrayal as aiden s tortured last days were one of the main reasons viewers kept tuning in!… at the very least aiden should ve ran off and not been killed off. hope and aiden were the next ‘ it’ couple!!!

instead of tptb turning aiden into a maniac why couldn’t they write hope being torn between bo & aiden – then kick bo to the curb and then bo leaves salem since peter didn’t want to stay on the show……………..

That would have been nice. Instead, the writers are going to give fans what they want in the short term. Bo and Hope back together for a few weeks then the rug will be pulled out. All will find out that Bo is dying as a result of what happened to him during his 3 year captivity. He cannot be saved. Since Peter is leaving the show Bo’s death will happen fairly quickly. But the writers will make sure that Hope, Kayla, Steve, Victor, Caroline, Shawn, Ciara, Jennifer, Maggie, John, Marlena, Roman, Brady etc each get to say goodbye to… Read more »

The only surprise is that the ratings weren’t higher. I continue to hear from long-time viewers that they can’t wait to watch the show each night. I do not think the ratings are completely accurate. With more than 5,000 fans gathering in Pigeon Forge two weeks ago for the book signing, it seems a lot of fans are not be counted. The highlights from the shows have been endless. Will’s murder, the return of Sami and Sonny, the dark side of the murders, Aiden’s descent into madness, the emergence of Abby and Chad as a supercouple, Bryan Datillo’s tour-de-force, are… Read more »

Problem is many people Fast Forward through commercials on their DVR then the ratings do not count. Also many fans do not have a DVR & will watch on YouTube when they come home which also doesn’t help ratings. I agree ratings are much higher then the ratings sport.

Theresa and Brady? I mean, hasn’t there been enough of the pairing of those two? I just think it gets a little monotonous with the SAME deal of Theresa being manipulative and Brady being taken in over and over. Also, I am bored to death by Nicole and Daniel. I DO like the storyline of Ben and Abigal, due largely to the incredible dramatic performance given by Kate Mansi as Abby. I also enjoy the tension between Chad and Ben. I realize of course that the show has other characters, but it’s time to explore other avenues than the same… Read more »

OH and having the writers get all “Shonda-rymes” with Aiden, was hard to take. But having his son, Chase, and Ciara grow up literally over night? Come on. Usually they send kids away to school THEN bring them back as teens.

Days is real good right now but i hope they tone down the violence soon…glad ratings improved…Andre is a little too cartoonish…seriously, give Patch a makeover…couldnt we have some Julie and Gabi scenes about Nick Fallon…judgement is still out on the teens…how about a triangle involving Ciara-i know she is a teen-with Rafe and Hope kind of like the 70s triangle involving Julie and her mother Addie with Doug!…GH could take lessons from Days…use your vets…tie newbies to the vets…interesting character driven stories that involves the entire cast…i miss Rory and Bev…where is Ann and Maxine…Bo is going to die… Read more »

Bev needs to return, pronto!

even if to mix it up and played bad girl… and “lure” JJ

she’s a HOTTIE…. reminded me of a young Cybill Shepperd… ala, the “Last Picture Show”

plus Bev could hook up with the new Australian actor

I like Maxine too.

The teens are awful. They cannot act. I was watching Y&R last night and thought the actress who plays Faith is a great actress. Why can’t the Days’ teens act? They are wooden. I hope they will improve, but it’s painful watching them while they try to act their way through scenes.

Most definitely it is the best soap airing–and it is giving the fans what they want–familiar and beloved characters, suspense, romance, and high production values with music, lighting, etc. And it is telling stories that the viewer can’t wait to see. It is not insulting nor ignoring the longtime, loyal viewers. And, at its core, it is about family.

and, if you’ve noticed, it’s getting back to its Catholic roots, with Caroline & Bo both saying novenas, and Sami consulting the priest, with the message from EJ in the Bible .. TomSell didn’t even have the traditional Christmas Eve service in the church last year. Nor did they show everybody at Thanksgiving dinner. Remember? Last year’s Thanksgiving episode was Kate & Clyde in bed! My mom always looked forward to seeing the holiday episodes with “the family”. LOL, so glad to see DAYS is back on track!

Along these lines, I fully expect that this year’s Christmas episode will include Will’s Christmas Tree ornament “accidentally” (on purpose) being smashed into a million pieces. I’m betting that a Horton dressed as Santa will step on and crush the ornament, to figuratively add another nail to Will’s coffin. However, if the writers really want to appease the vengeful fans, then a lightning bolt from the heavens will reach down to shatter the ornament, as a sign of the Almighty’s complete disapproval of everything about Will. Given the show’s recent track record, it’s most likely outcome will be that Will’s… Read more »

Hey ChandlerFan, that’s very funny, and I know you are hurting at the loss of Will. So sorry. I loved Will too and I’m hoping that somehow the DiMeras will be able to “resurrect” him, as they have so many others, LOL. As for religion vs. gay, does it have to be one or the other? Why can’t DAYS have both? They usually show everybody in the church at Christmas Eve (everybody at the same church, LOL). Will & Sonny were there two years ago. Last year, no, they did not show it. Nor did they show any families having… Read more »

Goes to show;
people like vets returning and suspenseful killings/serial killer on the loose..
Couples are ho hum and not a people graber
but- bringing vets back and dark murders are a winning ticket.

It worked for RC his first 2 years, and it’s working well for Days!
(soap couples, do not entice viewers to tune in..)
Darke intense Drama, and a damned good plot to get involved in is what gets people clicking in.
Favorite character’s, a favorite family, a loved vet, entangled in murder/serial killer putting people on the edge, who is next is what sells tickets..

Once the ratings stunts are done is when we will see if this show keeps it’s added viewers. Let’s face it, once the Bo/Hope and Patch/Kayla hype finally dies down I am sure the ratings will go back down for DAYS. The necktie killer story is coming to an end. Caroline’s ridiculous illness story line is over (thank you Christmas gods). Aiden is gone. Eve is going soon. And what do we have left but some really bad teen actors. The new Ciara has about as much talent as my dog’s fleas. She is awful and the new Chase character… Read more »

Don’t hold back Mateo tell us what you REALLY think – LoL. I agree though that Caroline and her visions while wearing the red living room drapes was a tad ridiculous. Nicole and Daniel (to me) are a snooze. Doug and Julie need to go to a Retirement community and send a postcard to Salem once in a while. The show will have to concentrate on some new characters for the new year in order to attract some new viewers. All this jazz about “Patch” being back and Bo being back will soon die down. Of course, it hurts me… Read more »

I have been trying to watch every episode, but I still wish it was available on cable NBC On Demand. Watching the missed episodes on NBC.com does not do well with the speed that I have.
This week I have been interested in Bo Brady and A. Martinez as “Eduardo Hernandez”.

You are so right about the show being on fire. Daniel Cosgrove was superb as Aiden. I am going to miss him so much. I am very impressed by Rob Scott Wilson. His unraveling Ben is riveting. (Again, makes me so sorry the online All My Children didn’t last longer. I can only imagine what he would have done with Pete if given a chance.) Kate Mansi is wonderful as the terrified Abigail. I can’t wait to see how Chad is going to come to her rescue. And now, Sami has be kidnapped. This doesn’t look good. I am enjoying… Read more »

All it took was one horrible murder after another. Killing off Will Horton was a long term mistake many new fans are still upset from it. Some may have not liked the Gay story line, but Will and Sonny were a 21st century couple. How are they going to keep up ratings when the 1980 favorites are gone and the deaths stop. The teens are boring to watch. Where will the shows ratings be in a few months?

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

Photo: JPI

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
