My favorite soap is Days but i wish Jen had a different storyline: first Anne causes her trouble, then Theressa, then Liam…REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT!!! Also, Eric and Nicole’s storyline is starting to bore me…a great twist would be Nicole coming clean for a change…Erics story is one that should be wrapped up much sooner…i can wait months for stories to unfold but Erics isnt one of them…Sonny and Wills wedding should bring in more viewers…it would be a real treat and a suprise if Days finally does a wedding without something going wrong but i wont hold my breath!!! GH… Read more »

If TPTB don’t realize that it is the pairing of Katie and Ridge and Hope and Wyatt, and just for kicks, Quinn and Bill, they need to wake up and smell the 21st Century !!!!!

Weekly ratings go up and down– basically the soaps are holding their own– which is okay. My beef for the week is with DAYS. There have been a couple of scenes in the park or outside St. Luke’s and there are leaves on the trees and nice green grass on the ground. Come on– Salem is supposed to be somewhere near Chicago is it not? When does it look like summertime in the middle of March??? Doesn’t DAYS have some kind of department that is supposed to make sure the scenery is matching the calender on air date even if… Read more »

Don’t watch it anymore but are they doing what GH&Y&R do the women wear sleeveless dresses in the dead of winter? I was thinking the other day when we had like how many soaps to choose from so if you did not like one you were bored you could go to another now you have 4 and for me since I watch 3 off and on if they were cancelled tomorrow I would not care they are that bad. Not trying to be a downer but if you watch clips of the old ones on you tube you find out… Read more »

Sorry for being such a downer I just watched about 15 minutes of Eden & Crus from Santa Barbara and man what a couple! Miss those great actors!

Thrilled to read that Y&R hasn’t “gone down the toilet” as predicted by the MM fanbase.
” while The Young an the Restless added +288,000 giving it 4,942,000 for the week in total viewers. Y&R was also the number one show in all the key demos”

The Young an the Restless is not all that great.. From the 32 countries that air the Y&R it has to be getting numbers from at the least one of those countries, somehow.. General Hospital is by far the best soap and DOOL too, both better than Y&R.. Y&R gets the numbers that makes it the most watched but not the best.. I watch Y&R every day, I am a number, and usually nood off when I’m not FFing, but I watch out of habit and hope more than anything.. This year has been the worst.. And it’s major stories;… Read more »

Exactly! The most watched does not mean the best. They push that #1 crap too much! People that decide to finally give soaps a try turn to #1 and think the soaps need to be buried because #1 is crappy! #1 is bad for the soaps!

You need to give up your weekly rant every time YR goes up. Nielson said they only count US viewers. YR is #1. n

So su0000 at it again being childish nincompoop screaming about YR and propping up GH…just typical. You must have a miserable, lonely life with so much loneliness in your life to berate a soap opera! OK! maybe you don’t like YR, fair enough but your array of rants speaks volumes about your posts and having posted so many well this is also showing what kind of person shining through in your rants. GH isn’t my kind of soap style in writing but you don’t see me seething in my posts and degrading GH in every turn. I have some realistic… Read more »

Typical comments from su…

I don’t understand why you’d watch a show that bores you.

That’s why I can’t watch the cartoony GH, and choose not to.

The other three shows are traditional soaps. But surprised to see Days is now down over last year…

HERE HERE P~ this is soooo typical from su0000…I had to comment over the asinine post. He does this on every thread about YR. I might have some minor problems with YR but this kind of posting is ridiculously forth telling in the individual.

Comments like that are just foolish, and transparent.

Stick to what you know…”the best” soap GH.

I’ll be in GC and LA.

My favorite is Bold & the Beautiful by far. I love the new Ridge but I want to see a different attitude with Brook. It’s always Ridge breaks Brooks heart goes with Caroline/Doc then he comes back to Brook with opened arms who always takes him back until the next girl and it’s a merry-go-round. I know he can’t live happily ever with Katie or that would be the end of the story but I would like to see him gradually get tired of her and try to get Brook back, who finally says NO and really makes him realize… Read more »

My favourite has always been Y& R so was glad they did so well. I also watch B&B sometimes, but I would be happier if Wyatt & Quinn weren’t on all the time. Can’t tolerate too much of them. I think Y&R is better without MM & MS.

Well the old saying, “if you don’t like what you’re watching , you can always change the channel” , is where I am headed. Bell, in spite of the tremendous popularity of Katie and Ridge’s story line is insistent on going back to the 20th century with Brooke and Ridge. Another way of showing who is REALLY running B & B…KKL ! Eric has become Brooke’s latest lap dog ! “The Chew”, is so much more satisfying ! Au revoir B & B !

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
