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.

MFB– I agree with you. This is a great show if you are a lover of soaps. Haters– please don’t ruin it for us all.

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 love the show. I hope it continues to do well. My favorite is Kelly Monaco. I love seeing her in eveyday life.

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.

I love this show! My favorites are Kelly Monaco & Kirsten Storm I like to see the real life friendship between them. I would like to see more of the two…I love JP. Farah not so much. She is to pushy. I hope we get to see a few of my other favorites in time. I never miss the show. I make sure I don’t. I dvd it. I love,love this show!!!!

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’!

WATCH: ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Cold Open: ‘Days of our Impeachment’

In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

In the SNL cold open; Mad Men alum Jon Hamm took on the role of  former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor.  Kate McKinnon reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, while Heidi Gardner played a fainting soapy impeachment hearing attendee.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

Now below watch Days of our Impeachment and let us know what you thought of the send-up via the comment section below!

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Reeves shares the entire DAYS team was up for the challenge. Melissa also reveals during the dramatic scenes where Jennifer’s family was acting emotional circles around her, that she fell asleep during her scenes while she was playing Jennifer in a coma.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.
