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!

Lisa Rinna Exits ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ After 8 Seasons

Days of our Lives alum, Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie) is departing her reality series gig with the announcement she is exiting Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after 8 seasons.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Rinna shared on her decision: “This is the longest job I have held in my 35 year career and I am grateful to everyone at Bravo and all those involved in the series. It has been a fun eight-year run and I am excited for what is to come!”

Actually, the decision to leave RHOBH came when Lisa’s contract was up at the end of last season, and after discussing her options along with her other business obligations, Rinna and Bravo mutually decided she would not return for another season. Rinna joined the franchise in its fifth season, back in 2014.

Throughout her time on RHOBH, Lisa was involved in numerous dramatic moments, twists, fights, feuds, along with a ton of social media vitriol antics.

Lisa was last seen as DAYS Billie Reed when she reprised her signature soap role for the Peacock limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem which premiered in the summer of 2021.

So, glad that Lisa is finally finished at ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’, or will you miss all the drama she finds herself in at the epicenter of each season? Comment below.
