Since last week’s ratings, On-Air On-Soaps fans of Days of our Lives have been posting their critiques and criticisms over the basement dwelling position of the folks in Salem.  Now the new ratings have come out for the week of October 11-15 and we can report that DAYS slightly improved in the ratings to #5 out of six soaps with an increase of total viewers of 75,000.

However, the converse is true for One Life to Live which shot up to #4 last week.  While it is still holding on to that position, the show lost the most viewers of any soap last week with a slide of soapers totaling a minus 108,000!   The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful were the only other soaps besides DAYS to have an increase of viewers for that week.

After the jump check out the official ratings supplied by Soap Opera Network!

the ratings for DAYS went up as people are tuning in to see James Scott. EJ was in a coma for more than a month while Sami was all over Rafe. Nobody cared much for them and now that EJ is back, people want to see him. Having their lead actor in a coma cost DAYS alot of viewers. They are going to have to do major damage control to increase their viewings even more. I am a James Scott and EJ fan first and Im also a die hard EJAMI fan. I can’t for EJ to take rafe down.

Producers and writers please listen to the fans! But, the fans and some soap magazine critics have to understand that new characters (newbies – hate that word) have to be introduced, in order to keep story going. This is a difficult time for soaps and we have to hang in there and applaud the shows when something is done right and voice our opinions constructively, when we feel something is off.

I am really concerned for my ultimate soap Days of our Lives!! They really have made some bad bad choices this year and now the show is paying for these bad decisions. KC shouldn’t tell US what couple we want to see, now look what has happened to the ratings since he practically told us no more Ejami and Safe is the direction they are going. He destroyed this whole entire summer of Ejami and with the shooting certainly grossed out many viewers of all ages. Second bad choice putting one of his lead characters in a coma for almost… Read more »

ITA and just want to add if they would just do what they keep talking about and bring back the romance, family, good writing, and fast moving sl the ratings would improve. Keep force feeding us things we don’t want like Safe and drawn out sl and the ratings will continue to decline.

Not everyone wants to see Ejami, as there are many Safe and Ejole fans out there. There are even many Lumi fans waiting for Lucas’ return. Many viewers are tired of the “Sami and/or EJ” show. There are other cast members, many of them vets, that we want to see as we care about them. Also, if the stories weren’t so predictable and so long and drawn out, perhaps viewers wouldn’t abandon the show having more of a vested interest. You can stop watching for a month, and when you return it’s as if you haven’t left at all. Gotta… Read more »

I agree with Sheree’s comments about Days. I, too, am an EJami fan. What have they done with our Samantha Gene? Made her into a murdering monster! And allowing her son and boy friend to help her in the cover up. We had EJami love this summer but the writers were only teasing us to keep us watching. Did they take notice of the ratings going down because of the horrible attempted murder and our favorite in a coma for almost a month? James Scott and Alison Sweeney are a gold mine and TPTB need to utilize and capitalize on… Read more »

I am a long time viewer. JS and AS are not a goldmine to all viewers. Some of us are plain out sick and tired of them, and actually wait for days (no pun intended) when neither is on so we can sit back and enjoy the characters we do care about. Bo and Hope are still a supercouple and deserve more onscreen time!

Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives had Eric Brady saying a sudden farewell to his loved ones before he departs Salem for Africa to help those in need.  That marks the on-screen departure of Daytime Emmy winner, Greg Vaughan who will last be seen on Wednesday’s episode.

As DAYS fans were aware, Greg wrapped his run months ago on the NBC daytime drama series, but since before the Covid-19 pandemic DAYS taped almost seven months ahead, Eric’s on-screen exit is airing this week.

Over the past two days, Vaughan took to his Instagram to share some sentiments, ‘thanks you’s’ and some photos of some of his favorite memories with his castmates expressing, “Seeing it’s the last week I’m airing on @nbcdays …I wanted to share some great captured memories this week with my incredible fans & castmates.”

The actor also posted a special photo album of pics with his longtime on-screen partner and love interest, Arianne Zucker (Nicole).  In that, he posted this message: “To my Ride or Die partner Ari!! Never a dull moment, laughing or crying, she was the party, always with a smile! Love ya #ERICOLE”

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.
