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)

6. AMC 2,309,000 (-101,000/-361,000

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 ABC.com 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.

It nice too read someone else’s opinon of OLTL, again Ebony, I agree with you 100%

Finally, Michael speaks with Victoria Konefal (Ciaria) on how she “Becomes Ciara Brady” as we visit her dressing room and find out just how she gets that Ciara-look that turns the head of Ben Weston every time she walks in to a room.

DAYS Deidre Hall On The Passing Of Jed Allan: “We’ve Lost One Of The Really Good Ones”

Over the last 24 hours, the soap world has been rocked by the passing of one of their favorites, Jed Allan.  On Saturday, Allan passed away at the age of 84.  So many of his co-stars and colleagues have posted their remembrances and their grief, which Michael Fairman TV had continue to add to the original post on Allan’s passing.

But on Sunday evening, none other than Allan’s most famous romantic scene partner, Days of our Lives Deidre Hall (Marlena) came forth and shared her touching thoughts on Allan’s passing via her Deidre Hall official Facebook page.

Deidre expressed: “We’ve lost one of the really good ones. It’s been decades since I stepped on to the NBC sound stage to screen test for Marlena on Days of our Lives. I was given a 4-page scene to memorize and perform with Days’ dashing bachelor, Don Craig, played confidently by Jed Allan. Jed made it all look easy with his dark good looks, deep resonant voice, a naughty twinkle, boisterous laugh and his characteristic swagger. He used his charismatic charm to win audiences as well as cast and crew. He never tired of my lack of experience and taught by example. He was deeply devoted to his sons and his darling wife Toby. When he lost her, we weren’t sure how he’d go on, but go on he did. Jed was a giant in so many ways, witnessed by the huge emptiness he leaves behind.”

Along with her sentiments, Hall posted a clip of her and Allan as Marlena and Don; when the couple was breaking-up on the series, which is posted below.

Following Hall’s remembrances on Jed Allan, several other DAYS cast members past and present also took to social media to express their thoughts and grief on the loss of Allan including James Reynolds (Abe) who noted: “Jed Allen was one of the first to welcome me to Days of our Lives.. I am grateful he took a young actor under his wing.”

Gloria Loring, who’s character of Liz Chandler was romantically involved with Allan’s Don Craig related: “I just heard that Jed Allan, the former Don Craig on Days, passed on. Rest In Peace, my old friend. I loved working with you and will remember you with a smile in my heart.”

So, what do you think of Deidre Hall’s remembrances and statement on the death of her beloved co-star from DAYS,? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
