Daytime Emmy Telecast On POP Scores Nearly 900,000 Viewers Making It Their Most Watched Live Event In 8 Years!

The numbers are in for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards which were back on television after a year hiatus.  And the numbers were good for the Pop network, who for the first time broadcast the ceremonies where they clocked nearly 900,00o in total viewers from the exclusive first-run airing and the repeat broadcast.  (Pop aired two telecasts of the awards ceremony – live broadcast at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT with a repeat at 11 PM ET/ 8 PM PT.)

The live premiere was the most-watched live event on Pop/TVGN in eight years, dating back to when the network premiered Live on the Red Carpet with Joan and Melissa at the Academy Awards.

In addition, the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards hosted by Tyra Banks, ignited fans on social media and became the second-highest-ranked show in Nielsen’s Twitter TV Ratings for the night, just behind Game of Thrones.  The live awards show outranked the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards, WWE Extreme Rules and Keeping up with the Kardashians in the Nielsen Twitter TV rankings.

While the 900,000 is significantly less than back in the Daytime Emmy telecast heyday of the 90’s, and as recently as 2011 when it last aired on network TV, Pop is a cable outlet and the Daytime Emmys are building a comeback after several sub-par  outings.  This year’s production was handled for the first time by Michael Levitt Productions.

So, what do you think about the numbers for the Daytime Emmy telecast? And how well the Daytime Emmys performed on social media? Never underestimate the power of the soap viewers and those of daytime television!

It sounds good enough for POP to air it again next year…and of course its not as high rated as in the 90s…back then you had slightly fewer cable stations, and less people on internet, cell phones ect….plus back then you had twice as many soaps and soap viewers as there are today…but maybe with POP airing the telecast…which showed definately more class than last years disaster…will grow with more viewers next year…i believe it was good publicity for daytime…now if POP was available in more markets im certain those numbers would be much higher!!!

I think you’re right on all counts…especially being available in more markets. Wonder if they will have highlights on youtube@

It was a great show. All my faves won. The only con was no-Kathy Griffin, who completely saved what could be saved of last year’s fiasco.

yeah, but the numbers would be much more than that, IF Pop offered live streaming, too. And, many people on this blog, including myself, do not have Pop on our cable. Too bad, I and others couldn’t view it 🙁

Always contact your cable subscriber and say youd like to see Pop as part of your cable channel offering…sometimes if they get enough requests it might work!!!

I didn’t even know POP existed prior to this year. So, good for them. Decent numbers for a cable show. I hope they do it next year because the atmosphere was much better than 2014’s, which I attribute to the performers knowing it was being broadcast instead of streamed. Some suggestions for next year – 1) If there is a clip montage, show that to viewers and not the performer on stage. We can hear the performer. But, we want to SEE the tribute clips. 2) Having a host who is social media savvy is great. But, PLEASE, make the… Read more »

POP didn’t exist before January 2015. Before that it was the TV Guide channel.

I watched the last half of the awards, and my only problem was the TV Guide scrolling at the midpoint of my tv screen. That drives me crazy! I hate complaining because it was so much better than last year, but with the scrolling, you miss a lot. Thanks to POP for showing it on live TV!

That’s because POP IS the TV guide channel…so they were simultaneously running the guide. Agree, though. It was distracting/annoying.

It was good to have it back on TV, but unfortunate that was not everyone gets POP. It was better than last year but Tyra & her lack of clothing was terrible.

this could have been …. 10 times the audience???? hopeful

Did anyone watch Queens of Drama on Pop after the Emmys? I have to admit I rather enjoyed it (primarily due to Donna Mills’ part). It’s advertised as a “reality” show, but I strongly suspect that it’s totally scripted.

As I’ve posted before, while there were things I could have done without, there were many things that were right about this year’s broadcast and I think the show is moving back to the right path.

So happy for good numbers and hope this will encourage POP to telecast it next year.

Good for the show and POP. I hope they improve on things for next year. Show clips of the nominees rather than cutesey filler segments. I don’t need nor want that.

I saw the sneak peek and wasnt all that impressed. Donna Mills is great but I understand she is just a guest and not a regular?

900,000 viewers were inflicted with the sight and sound of Tyra Bank’s whose numerous costume changes featured dress after dress which was even more horrific than the other.
She truly outdid herself.
Please, please, please, do not let that Road Warrior meets Dynasty creature host this event again.

Great news, the Emmys were a hit online also because it was trending on Twitter all night even after the show and it was at #2 trend for most of the night. And it was trending in other countries too.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
