Days Of Our Lives

DAYS ratings tank! B&B ratings spike!

The ratings are in for the soaps from the week of March 14th- March 18th, and it looks like fans who are very disgruntled with the storylines in Salem including the doppelganger Rafe story, as well as other lack of interesting stories are tuning out to Days of our Lives! The NBC sudser fell to last place among the six soap opera with where it drooped a -172,000 viewers! DAYS particularly bottomed out with the 18-34 female demographic where it hit a new all-time low with a 0.4!

On the flip side, The Bold and the Beautiful which remained in second below the number one show, Y&R gained a +134,000 viewers.  One Life to Live and All My Children also saw modest gains, and OLTL is now in the fourth spot all by itself! So some marginally good news for the ABC soaps.

Check out the full ratings sheet after the jump from our pals at Soap Opera Network!Ratings Report for the Week of March 14-18, 2011

So disappointed in DAYS stories. Luckily for me I got a chance to talk to Greg Meng at a book signing in Atlanta last week. I have never seen a show just implode by itself. It’s some of the worst writing I have ever seen. The one bright spot – Chloe’s story is going to be ruined with the exit of Jay Kenneth Johnson. I do not like the double rafe storyline nor do I even make any sense out of it. What’s it suppose to be accomplishing besides making viewers jump out of windows. There’s been not one Ej… Read more »

Your comment hit the nail on the head. I agree with everything you said. I am a die hard EJAMI and if Im not getting them, then Im not gonna watch. EJOLE stinks and SAFE are soooooooooooooooo boring. One Rafe was hard to stomach but TWO is just killing me. EJAMI have never been given the chance and now we have Taylor where Ken Corday is trying to convince us that they are so in love. Did EJ forget that Sami existed? Im loving General Hospital at the moment and AMC has also perked my interest as well. No matter… Read more »

OMG this 2 Rafes makes me sick. I think they should pairing him with someone else or FAIRD him NOT working! SAFE Boring & Ej completely forget about Sami his first love. When Ej says to Taylor ” I never felt like this before” What! Who wrote Ej’s dialogue just stupid! waste of talent . I love my Ej no matter what

Put Crystal Chappell back on the air…throw in some Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso, and you’ll have a storyline that might actually get people to watch.

Fake Rafe isn’t going to cut it….

Although I really do love all the actors and characters on Days, I can see why they show is in last place right now. The writing is terrible and if it doesn’t improve really quick, the show will be canceled. They need to finally get rid of Dena Higley and hire someone who cares about the characters. Sheri Anderson would be perfect to bring back in. She IMO is really the only one at this point that could save this show.

I say EJ and Nicole is the best act Days has right now,
sick of the two Rafes
would love to have Lucas Horton and Sami and her 4 kids as a Horton Family.
Bo and Hope is wonderful.
Love Maggie and Vic
like Kate and Stefano
so happy Jenn is back,but not with Dr.Dan 🙁

Hopefully there are some fixes in the mix because I hate to see Days suffer these type of ratings. I think the forced rush of Ej and Taylor turned people off. This couple have zero appeal and lack any spark. They could have built on Nicole and Ej because they already have a foundation & chemistry. I think there was a lot of excitement when this couple first came back together, but now the story seems to be spiraling down wasting the potential of these favorite characters. Fans want to watch passion that they believe in. The doppelganger story had… Read more »

EJOLE failed the first time- why it would work again is beyond me. They havent tried EJAMI and they should and then the ratings would definitely improve. EJAMI has a MASSIVE fan base that is totally turned off watching at the moment. LUMI’s left with Bryan Dattilo, who I was a fan of actually and there are hardly any EJOLE’s. Even Danloe are gone. Now Jennifer is being hooked up with Daniel and Jack is long gone?

Ejole done well with Tamara playing a hellion Taylor could spice up this story and get fans excited again. Hopefully this story is going to take on a whole new direction once this actress takes over the role.

Peter also mentioned on twitter some good material for Bo starting in June. Fans would respond favorably to an engaging story with him. We just need the writers to focus time on developing the emotion of the character & be true to the character.

Strong stories all around are what will bring up ratings.

This is true. Awfully convenient that they got rid of a Horton/Nathan and added a Hernandez/Dario. I guess Days of our Lives will now revolve around Rafe and his family. The legacy families (Hortons and Bradys,Dimeras, kiriakis family) will be phased out for the Hernandez. Adding a new family with no history. Long time Days viewers aren’t going to watch. The writers are hell bent on selling “SAFE” as their couple of choice, regardless of the fans who are dissatisfied with this couple. I really don’t understand their way of thinking, Don’t even get me started on this 2 Rafes… Read more »

I agree 100% with your post. Sami has become so pathetic its not funny! Rafe is soooooooooooo boring and Im not buying this EJAYLOR so called love. EJ loves Sami. If DAYS brought back their core characters like John, Marlena, Tony ( I love Thaao), Carey, Austin, Jack, Lucas to name a few- their ratings would go up for sure. The Hernandez clan need to leave.

Avelina, I agree with you and I would start watching again! EJ adores SAMI, but this poor excsue of the character SAMI is beyond pathetic, there are no words to describe how lame SAMI is and how utterly ridiculous SAFE is.
Don’t they remember EJAMI of 2006-2007? EJ was so in love and so obsessed with SAMI, there is no other woman for EJ! It will ONLY be Samantha for him. Granted we need old Sami back, because this “version” of SAMI is unwatchable! and don’t get me started on RAFE, just pass me a bucket.

Hey Ken are you proud that SAFE has killed the show??? I jumped ship when that horrible storyline of Sami shooting EJ in the HEAD aired!! How that work out for you KEN?? This show has been CRAP ever since Ken Corday paired SAFE together. All I can say is EJ deserves better, Sami needs to put in jail, I truly HATE her and RAFE so much that I can’t even watch previews of them! I literally have to turn off the TV, they make me want to puke! What a shame, SAFE has ruined my show, and I have… Read more »

I agree with all. The Roborafe story line has been so horrible – just not watchable. I have not watched much since it has been on. This is not against GG – think he is a nice guy – just story line is hard to watch and take. Seems ratings have tanked since Roborafe has been on. Taylor/EJ have not worked. No chemistry, no spark. Time was not taken to build or develop the relationship just instantly they were thrown together in love, but the problem is that you do not see or feel the love. I love EJ, but… Read more »

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
