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!

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
