Courtesy/ABC

In the ratings released for the week of September 29th through October 3rd, it was good week for all four network soap operas in terms of total viewers with each showing gains!

The show that gained the most was ABC’s General Hospital, which benefited from the arrival on-screen of a bandaged Billy Miller (Jason).  GH gained +103,000 and put its total viewer tally to over the 3 million mark once again! However in the key demos, it was NBC’s Days of our Lives and CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful that each showed gains in viewers on the positive side: women 18-34 (although B&B did not gain viewers it held the same as last week), 18-49, and 25-54! 

Here’s a look at the total viewers picture via SON below: with numbers based on  Live+Same Day ratings.

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

1. Y&R 4,568,000 (+24,000/-184,000)
2. B&B 3,716,000 (+79,000/+195,000)
3. GH 3,041,000 (+103,000/+310,000)
4. DAYS 2,484,000 (+49,000/+58,000)

So which soap opera do you think was on fire the most for the rating period?  Do you think all four of the network soaps are on an upswing? Do you think each soap is making improvements on the casting side and story side to try to entice you to keep viewing and staying with their brand of storytelling each week?  Share your thoughts below!

strong week for the soaps. Impressed with B&B. Next week we’ll see how Ej’s death on Days did ,and Phyllis’s return at the Shick wedding on Y&R did

The scene in the morgue with EJ’s body and Sami (DOOL) really did me in, I cried my eyes out….something which I had not done in a long, long time watching a soap.
This scene was much more poignant and heart wrenching than anything happening on Y&R.
The part where Sami was feeling for EJ’s heartbeat? Well, that had me sobbing like an idiot.
Wow and double WOW.
Is EJ really dead?

He is only dead for now…we will probably see him later at some tropical resort with his Samikins on a beach drinking something with one of those little unbrellas thingies in it…but if we dont, and E.J. is truly dead, will come back to life if the actor ever decides to return to the show…i see the guy doing a lot of primetime work or joining GH as Valentin Cassidine!!!

All soaps are picking up as stories build up for November sweeps– in general the best months for soaps are October, November, February, April and May– so for the next few weeks all soaps should be picking up in the ratings as compared to the summer when soaps tend to go a bit flat. Looking forward to some good entertainment ahead on every show in the weeks to come until the holiday season when once again stories tend to level off as we start preparing for Christmas.

All My Soaps had an interesting week…E.J.s and eventually Samis departure might change things for Days in the weeks ahead and itll be interesting to see which direction things go…itll also be interesting to see what happens when Melissa Archer joins Days later this year…Billy Millers did a fine job in those hospital scenes…im certain his joining the show and improved writing helped GH…cant wait next week for my soaps…got to see some episodes of ‘The Doctors’ and i loved it…just wish it was on a major cable channel…Liz Hubbard and the rest were as great as i rembered and… Read more »

That is great news, that the ratings are up. General Hospital and the Young and The Restless is on fire now. I am enjoying Gina Tagnoni as the new Phyllis Summers, Gina is a terrific actress and honestly I forgot about Michelle Stafford in the role of Phyllis. Gina has got be hooked again on the Young and The Restless. I smell another emmy for Gina in the future or sooner , maybe next year. I loved watching Gina, on guiding Light as Dinah Marler. She won 2 daytime emmys on Guiding LIght as Dinah Marler. General hospital is also… Read more »

I think Y&R and GH are going to explode with Phyllis and Adam on Y&R and Billy Miller on GH. I love all the soaps, except Days.

I thought E.J. and Sami were the two best people on the show. I think the show will lose some of its fun and glamour without them. I also think some viewers will leave as well.

I wonder how the Nielsen glitch will affect the GH ratings. Haven’t seen the adjusted numbers for daytime yet.

“GH” has considerably upped its game over the past month….between the gripping C-C action and added/returning talents of Billy Miller, Donna Mills and Sebastian Roche’, we have been treated to some top-notch plotlines and performances. Jerry was totally sublime yesterday holding court in that Amsterdam cafe’ surrounded by Tracy, “Sweet Sam” and Patrick. (Loved the tongue-in-cheek nod to SR’s vampire role in “The Originals!”) Somehow I just sensed last Friday when that door opened that “Jacks was back”….actually made me think “FLuke Who”…. cares?” That farce has gone on for so long, I’m almost past it….not the showrunners’ fault,, of… Read more »

Could Jerry still been Fluke…Jerry could been Fluke and is now holding Luke hostage, and plans to frame Luke for Flukes doings when it was really Jerry as Fluke and not Luke as Fluke???

CeeCee

Hey, jimh, There is a strong possibility that Jerry is Fluke. The real Luke is in a dormant state….a stupor, actually, induced by all the mind-altering drugs he probably ingests as meals. I agree with your deduction, though…makes so much sense. What confuses me is that Jerry seemed to be genuinely surprised to hear that Michael presently holds the reins of ELQ; while, if I remember correctly, Fluke already knew that…..so, it should not have come as a surprise if Jerry were Fluke. Unless Jerry was putting on an act for Traci’s benefit. I do believe that Fluke has now… Read more »

Not in my mind, jimh….Remember, not only was Jerry suffering those injuries from his swandive off the MetroCourt, but he was near extinction due to polonium poisoning….I cannot believe he bounced back so quickly as to have been traipsing about Port Charles throughout the spring. Besides, I still cannot envision that suave, silver-tongued snake comporting himself in the perverse manner in which FLuke became so renowned.

GH has shown remarkable improvement.
However, I still irritated by the dumbing down of the women. Anna, Lulu, Carly, Alexis and of course, Traci.
Traci has been so utterly clueless and uncharacteristically gullible that she is starting to remind me of one of those Catfish victims Dr Phil constantly features on his show.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Yes, Harry…there is remarkable improvement when I can actually sit through three entire episodes in a row and remain relatively riveted….(I am speaking of Friday, Monday and yesterday.) Of course, I find myself less enthralled with today’s preview, but one must take what one can, and give credit where credit is due. But you’ve a real point in finding issue with the growing phenom of Port Charles’ fairer sex being”stuck on stupid.” Tracy’s been rolling downhill for an age, particularly in relation to her blind allegiance to Luke/FLuke, but also please tell me that any well-traveled cosmopolitan female who came… Read more »

Shay, why did God bless you with the gift of glib and not the rest of us? ( and i mean that as the utmost compliment) . I had no clue who Julia Wainwright was, so I had to research her….you’re just too much…too funny. Should have guessed it was your second favorite soap star. Oh, you don’t like the word ‘star’ being used? How about ‘performer?’ Take that any way you wish, Shay. Yes? LOL. You know, Shay, I must agree with you about Tracy…..never mind coming from the Pepsi generation, the 60’s, but she is supposedly a well-traveled… Read more »

Oh, CeeCee, there are times when I’m not certain whether my irrepressible glibness is a blessing or a curse, but if it helps makes your day, then I will favor the former! (Thank you for that….) As for your terming NLG a soap “star,” I have no quarrel with that … believe it or not, I actually enjoyed her work on “Santa Barbara.” Along with Lane Davies, she comprised a truly epic “supercouple.” They were magic together. I simply cannot say the same for the needy, obnoxious “Alexis” and her failed string of inappropriate Port Charles conquests…..in my eyes, lightning… Read more »

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

Photo: JPI

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Victoria Konefal Confirms Her Exit From Days of our Lives

As the rumors circulated they were today proven true.  Victoria Konefal (Ciara) has left Days of our Lives as a full-time cast member with the long-running NBC soap opera.

In a statement to Deadline, Konefal shared: “I cherish every moment I have spent working on Days of Our Lives. It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member. To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

However with that statement, it does appear Konefal has left the door open for her to return as Ciara in a guest-star type of appearance or in a arc of a storyline- time will tell just how that pans out.

Konefal joined the show as the new Ciara Brady back in 2017, and became popular as part of the tortured duo known as “Cin’ along with Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) who’s on-screen nuptials aired this week on the show.

Since Days taped so far ahead of air before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown and has episodes through Mid-October in the can, it would appear Konefal would make her on-screen exit during that time, since she will not be returning to the series, when it begins production again, which is projected to start on September 1st.

Konefal joins the list of departures since the beginning of this year which now include: Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan and Kristian Alfonso.

So, sad to see Victotia exit as Ciara? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
