Good news for E! Entertainment’s first reality with daytime soap stars!  Dirty Soap which this past Sunday moved to the 10:30 p.m. ET time slot following lead-in Kendra, saw a strong showing and boost in their ratings!

Both reality series did get a nice assist from,  Kim Kardashian and her wedding special, which was the highest event in the history of E! drawing 10.4 million viewers.  But according to TVByTheNumbers,  “On Sunday following Part 1 of the wedding, Kendra in its new 10pm time slot benefited from the strong Wedding lead-in, and posted its highest rated and most-watched telecast ever with a 2.15 HHLD rating and over 2.7 million Total Viewers.  Immediately following at 10:30pm Dirty Soap, in its new time slot also delivered its highest rated and most-watched telecast of the season with a .95 HHLD rating and over 1.1 million Total Viewers.”

Now the question is, which story from Sunday’s episode kept you tuned-in the most?  Kelly’s GH wedding dress and relationship drama? Farah and Kirsten’s sour reunion?  Brandon and Nadia and Galen and Jenna’s trip to Napa?  Or, something else?  Let us know!

The cast of Dirty Soap should purchase Kim and Kris a nice wedding gift since The Kardashian wedding extravaganza are the ONLY reason the ratings went up for Dirty Soap! The ratings bump won’t last. The ratings for Dirty Soap will drop and taper off next week and onwards.

Why are commenting on a show you probably don’t even watch. What does one show have to do with another. I think dirty soap is great and will continue to have good ratings.

Nadia and Brandon are my favorites. Gaylen and Jenna not so much. Why would they even go anywhere together? It seemed forced and they don’t seem to really be friends. Plus Gaylen is as boring on Dirty Soap as he is on Days. By next week I’ll be fast forwarding when he’s on the screen.

I’m a Mom so I relate the most to Jenna. But I like the other cast members. Farah is hilarious and so is JP…and I don’t think Galen is boring AT ALL…I love Dirty Soap and I hope it continues!!!

I agree about Galen being boring as he is on DAYS. My favourites are JP and Farah. They are so cute but I agree that the ratings will go down again.

I enjoyed this week’s episode, as I have all thus far. My favorites are Farah and J.P. and Kelly and Kristen, but I do enjoy all the storylines. It is nice to see a different perspective of their lives, and I wish all of them and the show much success. I will certainly continue to watch!!!!

My favorites on Dirty Soap are Galen & Jenna, then Nadia & Brandon so I very much enjoyed the Napa trip that featured these couples.

Thanks, Michael, for keeping us up to date on Dirty Soap. I hope you will be able to do more interviews with the actors about their experiences on DS.

My favorite persons on Dirty Soap are not the soap stars, but some of the supporting cast memners: Fary (Nadia’s mother), the Gering boys (sons of Galen & Jenna Gering) and coming in 3rd, JP’s mom (she is a hoot)!

However in general, I do enjoy a behind the scenes look at soap operas. I hope to see more cast members from Days and also more hehind the scenes shots there.

I watch the show to see Kelly Monaco, unfortunately they don’t show her much. All the time is spent on Nadia and Brandon and JP and Farah constantly telling us how beautiful they are. Wish we could see more Kelly, she’s cool, down to earth and my fave.

Kelly Monaco is the ONLY reason I watch DS. I find her to be extremely real and down to earth. I realize a lot of DS is planned…but, Kelly has the ability to make it look spontaneous. In fact, her portion is the MOST REAL of all of the show. The GH behind the scenes stuff is the BEST part of DS for me. I love GH and Kelly…so, it’s a win/win for me. The last episode was the best so far…Kelly in Pocono’s with her mom was awesome. Great relationship.

DS is good. I LOVE LOVE watching Nadia, Brandon and Fary. I also like Farah. But Galen and Jenna are so boring I have to FF, and Kelly is a narsicist and looks like she should belong in a trailer somewhere.

But they need to reboot for next season. Get rid of Jenna and Galen. Maybe get Kyle Lowder and Arianne. Kirsten should be back after her 90 day treatment and should resume her fights with Miss Farah.

But I could watch the show if only Nadia, Brandon, Fary and Farah were on. They carry the show.

Lets not get it twisted. This show is only being put together for one reason and one reason only. KELLY MONACO.. THE E Network would not have signed off on it unless Kelly was involved. Do I think Kelly and Kirsten are just work friends? Yes. Kirsten’s endometriosis spotlighted that clearly..

I Aboslutely LOVE ‘Dirty Soap’. I have been a faithful ‘Days’ watcher since its’ start 45 years ago – I’m 54 now – and love the characters (past and present), so the stars included in this show couldn’t have been better choices. I didn’t know Kelly Monaco, but have enjoyed following her here. It doesn’t matter which episode airs; I watch the show regardless. Please continue with this entertaining series. It is so nice to see our favorite soap stars out of character and in their own ‘soaps’!

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.
