Great news for Days of Our Lives. Glad to see it up. ABC also released a press release looks like a great week for General Hospital as well “General Hospital”: (2:00 – 3:00 p.m.) “General Hospital” climbed to an over 2 year high in Women 18-49 (753,000/1.2 rating) and over 2 and a half year high in Women 25-54 (1.00 million/1.6 rating), placing a solid #2 in the demos, and set a near 11 month high in Total Viewers (2.98 million) – since weeks of 8/15/11, 3/21/11 and 12/24/12, respectively. Furthermore, “General Hospital” ranked as the #1 program in daytime… Read more »

So over the past 48 hours, Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives and General Hospital have been shattering records?

And Young and the Restless? Still a mess?

So women over 54 don’t matter to viewing numbers? Hmmm. And we have lots of disposable income. Maybe I’ll stop watching TV. Online soaps are pretty good.

It was the best soap that week, and continues to be good…keeps it up it could well trade places with GH for third place again unless Robin finally reveals herself to Patrick on GH and then itl go back to third…but thats if Patrick and Sabrina dont marry and go on honeymoon first or Faison stops her…

you know… Eileen Davidson is watchable in any role… at this point… be it Y&R or DAYS. selfishly, I want for DAYS. it occurred to me as of late: DAYS Kristen… from the get go … always has to fight for herself, be on guard… from everyone in Salem… you know… in a constant.. yeah, it’s me… so ?!?! would that be a tough grind… day in and day out… always, not having to prove herself to me… but to the audience… heck… the halo-ed brethren of Salem get in a mood… that’s impenetrable. DiMera’s further story… for a REASON.… Read more »

Bravo Days! Last week was excellent. Greg Vaughan was outstanding!! Eric Martsolf was the best I’ve ever seen him. Arianne Zucker – what can I say – she breaks your heart with all her scenes. John Aniston was delicious and needs to be seen more. Deidre Hall – her reactions and her emotion shone through her scenes. And finally, Eileen Davidson, the queen of vengeful, psychotic, tortured women who can have you cheering for her one minute and appalled at her actions the next. All of these actors deserve an Emmy nod for their portrayals and Days deserves Best Soap… Read more »

Loved Days last week everyday was great my fave day was the Ejami fight when Sami kicked EJ out of bed classic acting from Ali and James but I have to say the whole week was great magic acting from Eileen, GV and EM and AZ and DH it just a marvellous week that Brady and Eric punch up was brilliant to watch.

More! More! As always, I am so happy for the success DAYS is having with these imaginative and wickedly entertaining and crazy stories. I hope they continue to climb in viewership. They really and truly deserve it! Congrats to everyone involved!

……And I believe they’re up for renewal in January. This was a mighty fine time to have this press release with this news!

Loved it. Days always bring it for sweeps week and this Nov did not disappoint. I am also enjoying the fallout. I laugh myself silly today seeing Fr. Eric outfit. I guess a suspended priest wears all grey and when he gets defrock he can wear colors again LOL. And Victor’s exchange with Marlena was pure gold. These things might have the impact as a big reveal, but they are as much of a reason as the grand stuff as to why I like this show.

Well of COURSE the existing soaps are doing well. Not to suggest that Days of Our Lives isn’t a fine show because it most certainly is, but there are so few soaps to choose from that the very few that have been lucky enough to survive are doing just great. Some people are saying that soaps are a dying genre, but it seems to me that NBC is doing just great with Days of our Lives and CBS is doing well with their shows, and ABC’s General Hospital is pulling in the numbers. Don’t mean to go off topic here… Read more »

Move on already and come back to planet Earth please. AMC is done and is NEVER coming back to ABC. Even if ABC bought back the rights (rather unlikely at this point) where exactly would ABC put it? Dream on. Like it or not, ABC seems very happy with The Chew. Its ratings are growing and are at least on par with what declining AMC pulled in its final years on ABC. Plus, it’s much cheaper to produce, so ABC seems to be making more $$$ in that time period. Please try to understand that already. Yes, the four remaining… Read more »

Nick, I work in Cancer Research trust me I am acutely aware of the hazards of being on, as you call it, “planet earth”. I am not, as you phrase it, “intolerant” of someone who enjoys a cooking show. ABC-TV did not even consider, to the best of my knowledge, experimenting with a different model of the iconic ALL MY CHILDREN, as in trimming the episodes down to a half hour or presenting it as a one hour a week night-time Program. I completely agree that, unfortunately, at this particular point in time it is unlikely that it will resurface.… Read more »

Best show on the air right now period! GH is a close second but I prefer Days! GH has surface plot device edge of your seat moments, but with the exception of the Robin stuff it is fluff, don ‘t get me wrong I love GH, but I find the storylines on DAYS to be much deeper and more complex these days.

Patrick
Guest

I have to agree:

Days is: focus… innuendo, nuances, delivery, reaction, further intrigue… must see TV

GH: on par with, surprises…? bait and hook… and it’s more than that.. makes Serial FUN.. whereas:

my days is serious, quality, my own investment… delivery, I like my imagination with… whew…

deservedly, #1 and #2, your call

You’re crazy to think DAYS fans would support YawneR if DAYS is dropped. DAYS viewers are accustomed to edgy entertainment. Daring daytime drama is where it’s at! Not dimwitted dull crap like YawneR! Be careful what you wish for! If DAYS drops dead, then they all will die!

No, I am not crazy. If I was, I would not have earned a Ph.D. degree at age 29 and been a successful tenured University Professor for the past 11 years and still gainfully employed. You have your opinion and I respect that. But, I have a mind of my own and my opinion.

You go, Days!!!! I’ve been watching Days for 47 years and have never been bored! Some storylines stand out more than others but it is on fire!!! The fallout of the Kristen/Brady is reverberating throughout Salem and beyond. Will Kristen be found, only to make more trouble than she already has? I will miss Eileen Davidson but not Kristen. The storylines and acting have been phenomenal. The only one that I don’t like is Jennifer/Daniel. Keep up the good work, Days! You’ve got my tv and dvr tuned in every day. Wouldn’t miss an episode!

LOVE THIS! DOOL finally getting the love they deserve. This show has been rocking! When I go to my DVR DOOL has been my first pick for weeks, GH a close second and sadly, I’m two weeks behind on Y&R (but that’s no reflection on the talented actors). I don’t watch B&B but am always happy for their fans. Lots of soapy goodness on daytime tv.

Excellent Read!

we have the same soap musts:

#1 DAYS
#2 and nipping at Salem heels: GH
#3 Y&R – I’m at a loss for how to help Genoa City – but: it’s a treasure trove
#4 B&B – could never disbend my belief to watch millionnaires

3 soaps giving and getting ALL TIME big numbers

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.

Share your remembrances of the exceptional Robert Clary via the comment section below. But first, watch Robert talking about working with Bill Hayes on Days of our Lives, and his appearance in Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Lifetime Achievement Award package at the Daytime Emmys (produced by Michael Fairman).
