RATINGS: B&B Has Great Week With Raya's Wedding, GH Struggles, DAYS Poised To Spike With Big Returns!

The ratings are out for the week of August 10th through the 14th, and it was an excellent week for The Bold and the Beautiful which saw a gain of +316,000 total viewers.

During the week in question, it was Rick (Jacob Young) and Maya’s (Karla Mosley) wedding that played out with the confrontational drama between the Avant family, and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) trying to remember what happened the night Aly (Ashlyn Pearce) was killed and if she was indeed a murderer!  B&B came in with + 3.815,000 for the week.  The CBS soap also the only daytime drama to add viewers in the key 18-49, and 25-54 women demos.  B&B also added the most viewers in the 18-34 women demo of any soap.

Elsewhere, General Hospital is continuing to struggle.  The ABC series is once again hitting a new low in the key 18-49 women demo, as well as tied in that category for all-time low rating share.  GH actually added +11,000 in total viewers for the week, but their overall total viewer performance tallied in at 2,555,000  and that is down -284,000 from the same time last year.

And this now opens the door for NBC’s Days of our Lives, who this week just debuted the new head writing regime of Josh Griffith and Dena Higley’s work, as all the returns will now be starting to file in beginning with Patch played by Stephen Nichols next week on-air.

DAYS is just under 100,000 plus total viewers away from the number three spot that has been held for so long by GH.  Will DAYS overtake GH in the coming weeks?  Can GH stave them off and keep their number 3 position safe?  It’s not looking promising for the folks in Port Charles as of this week’s ratings report.

The Young and the Restless continues to hold very strong. The number one soap gained +82,000 total viewers for the ratings week and is almost at +400,000 since the same time last year.  Y&R continues to also be in first place in every key demo. Check out the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

So, was The Bold and the Beautiful the show to watch last week? Can GH gain some momentum? Will DAYS finally be in the number three spot by the end of August when the ratings come out?  Share your thoughts on what is working and what is ailing on your favorite soap opera in the comment section below!

I believe the new GH writers, the dual that near sank Y&R with it lowest ratings ( and that was not an easy feat) to bring it that low but they managed to it lol
and both head writers were fired and will now be writing for GH and I see nothing hopeful that’s going to come from the Queens of Snooze..

DOOL has cleaned house and put a great effort into saving it.
It looks very promising..
(too bad Jean and Shelly were not dragged into DROOL, smart people at NBC … lol

Long Live ALL the Soaps!! they are loved!!

su0000,

With you being a fan of Chuck Pratt’s story telling and GH and Y&R essentially swapping head writers, I knew it wouldn’t take long before you became more of a Y&R fan and less of a GH one. Y&R is still some good, some bad for me.

hi Mr. X ..
I have always been a Y&R fan just not 2014 happy fan lol
2014 put me near comatose lol
Pratt has awakened me..

GH, I have always loved, I really enjoyed RC writing, lued it!
I fear for GH under the Snooze Queens..
after all they were responsible for the Y&R big snooze of 2014 ..

I pray the snooze queens did not drag Cassie’s tombstone to GH with them to continue on with the long long loooong boring speeches that seemed to be a 10000 a year .
And god forbid if they hauled in the infamous unfinished Music Box story!

i’m hoping GH can get its act together, and they need to do it quickly, i sure hope this new writing team knows that they don’t have the luxury of time, just get with it and reveal jason is alive, and in the process, give us back the nickolas and elizabeth that we love, i hate this dark slimy prince and hate that they’ve made liz so desperate for a man. We also need answers to where is Robin? Decide once and for all if you want Genie Francis back full time and stop with these short unsatisfieing visits. Don’t… Read more »

I don’t watch B&B but think maybe the writers from GH should to see why it is working. Sadly, I have taken GH off my DVR recording and have not even peeked at it in about 2 weeks. I am not giving up and harbor some degree of hope that they can get it together. As is stands now, I cannot abide the following: the sight of Denise’s horrible wig and the sound of her confused and badly employed accent, Nina’s lip twitching from all the scene chewing, Roger’s continued bad and muggy acting, Kiki’s histrionics, Morgan Fairchild’s stale and… Read more »

I’m with you, Harry! It’s been over two weeks and counting for me as far as tuning out GH. Just reading the daily synopses/spoilers has been a thankless and unpleasant task, given the idiotic goings-on. As long as the showrunners insist upon utilizing their endless parade of ignominious characters like Nina, Franco, Hayten, Denise, Val-Chops, Sappy, Mikey, Morgan, Grossalie, Jordan, Ric, Alexis, Molly, TJ and so on and so forth, I’m outta there!!!! Even the sublime Liesl, Jake, and NuPaul cannot keep me viewing in whilst these terrible Ron C storylines play out…..perhaps when Anna returns, and other old favorites… Read more »

Harry, Same for me. I haven’t watched in close to three weeks. It isn’t just the writing, it’s who the writing is for and what they are doing with it. GH is unrecognizable. I don’t want to watch a show that has Franco’s charges and trial at the center and focuses on other characters like Nina, Ava, Kiki, Dr.O. And you’re right, it isn’t just the writing. As you say, Howarth’s acting choices and execution are his and have been from day one. He has done his best to make Franco unwatchable regardless of the writing. Denise/Ava’s accent and delivery… Read more »

O come on Harry a real soap fan stays in the trenches and watches everyday for the greater good. As a vet of soap watching I have endured over forty plus years of watching various soaps some of the most horrendous stuff imaginable and nothing on GH right now comes close to the bottom of the soap barrel. I watched MS for years on Y&R as Phyllis and I tell you as Nina the girl is on Valium– my goodness on Y&R it was like the character was on speed, saying almost every line three times in a row, are… Read more »

GH struggling because the show continued to be awful..I can’t find not one character on the show now that I even care about, I don’t care about the murder victim, don’t care about the suspects to want to know who did it, so over Sonny I don’t even watch him or the mob anymore, the new characters bored me senseless, so not investment and that’s all we have to look forward too. Bring back Robert Scorpio, and give me Anna Devane & Robert Scorpio doing anything(solving cases anything..Give me something to get excited over with GH. I’m hanging on by… Read more »

This is exactly how I felt when I gave up on GH about 20 years ago. I only started watching again when it was announced that OLTL and AMC were cancelled :(. I didn’t like or care about one single character. I’m pretty close to that now. I hope new writers can save the show.

“I can’t find one character. . .one character I . . . care about.”
You are correct. And if TPTB do not care about the viewers, the viewers don’t care about the show. It’s that simple; we’ve been trying to say that for months/years, and our protestations fell on deaf ears or were simply ignored. TG care take a lot of credit for that also.

Heeey Harry.. The Fluke story went on too long. when Tony was out for 6 months the Fluke story should have been put aside (but on return, it did give Tony his 8th emmy.. It was the Luke exit that put other big stories on hold..therefore tune-outs, and the Luke exit was not all in RC’s hands..and too long and a mistake to run it that long. but hey- it was Tony yah know.. now that it is over RC these past weeks has brought back his A-Game, GH has been very good since Luke’s exit.

GH needs to get back to the real GH. Fire Ava, Nina, Donna Mills, etc. These ladies may have worked on other shows, but this is General Hospital and they do not belong here. The show is unrecognizable. I believe Days will pass up GH in the ratings, because it is a better show to watch. Days is still focused on its core families. Something GH abandoned long ago. I will watch when Genie Francis returns in September, but I can’t watch what we are seeing now.

this is the problem of not developing new writers. they keep going to the same people who recycle the same stories and at some point just becomes a hamster wheel. I’m glad there are new head writers coming in, but I am not optimistic because of what I have been reading about their stint at Y&R. Let’s hope they learned from those mistakes. As others have said, please get rid of the new characters who ARE NOT connected to either a core family or the hospital. Silas is a good start, but I think Ava, Nina, Kiki and Madeline all… Read more »

Days has been slowly improving, and will soon be the no.3 soap and if all goes well with the returns and writing, i can see Days dethrone B&B at second place…hopefully, Days will keep its vets equally front and center with its aged children…the teens can help refreshen things but not carry the show on their own…and less Danial too!!! As for GH, the show lacks a hero and a heroine—it badly needs Robert and Anna, more Mac, Felicia and Monica, and like Days it might eventually need to age their children—as 15 year olds Emma, Spenser, Cameron and Josslyn!!!… Read more »

I didnt mean that Jake wakes up realizing he is Jason and five minutes later he is performing surgery at GH…my comment might imply that but it wasnt what i meant…i want him to finally remember he is Jason and how he once planned to become a doctor and he pursues that dream…im sick of the mob stuff which isnt well done in the first place and hoping Jason will eventually become a doc and not Sonnys sidekick!!!

Maybe it is time to stop idolizing criminals. It is RIDICULOUS that Michael would give up a little sister that he loves to the man that killed his father and who has no qualms about shooting anyone, but yes he is a loving father (POOH). I also hate what they have turned Liz into. And does anyone believe Lucky would return the son he mourned and just take off again. Does anyone who is writing really get human emotion. And Liesel as head of the hospital (though I love the comedic part she brings to the show). How about some… Read more »

Totally agree, Cary. I cannot stand how they glorify Sonny Corinthos and how Carly stands by his side (her hypocrisy regarding Franco and how she betrayed him makes me want to scream) and how anyone could put an innocent child in his hands.
Enough with the guns and knives and all the mob wars!!!
GH needs to spotlight romances before it’s too late if it isn’t already.
Wish the new writers had a better track record of improving ratings!!!

B&B deserved the ratings spike. The wedding scenes were soapy goodness!

I like the Ally storyline (sorry she’s gone) despite the fact that Steffy & Liam (UGH!) are central to the story.

There’s many reasons why “GH” is circling the drain; the last of the inept stories that are unfolding aren’t drawing in viewers and quite a lot of viewers have called it in after Michael Easton was let go from the series and his character “Silas Clay” killed off unnecessarily without any sort of character evolution. To be fair, this isn’t the first time new characters were created only to eventually be cast aside as if they were nothing. That happened to Jimmy Deshler last year when his character of “Rafe Kovich Jr.” was also killed off in a storyline that… Read more »

Why do us fans always have the BEST ideas and ANY of these writers suck! Other than current binding contracts or disinterest,

Bring back: Robert, Anna, Robin, Ned and Noah.

Use: Bobbi, Monica, Mac, Felicia, Tracy, Paul, Scotty, Patrick, Sam, JASON, Liz, Nick, Hayden Lucas and Lucy

Cut: Franco, Ava, Julian, Nina, Madeline, Rosalie, Lisel, Brad, Sabrina, TJ, Jordan.

Recast: Michael and Morgan

Send Sonny and Carly on a LONG Honeymoon!

Come on now. Tristan Rogers is under contract at Y&R. Wally Kurth is under contract at Days. And for the 7 millionth time, KM doesn’t want to act full time on GH. I wish the show would just recast her so all the Robin fanatics could then complain about the recast.

Guest

Well I heard Tristan was recurring now on Y&R and if Kim wants to stay away, recast. Wally, I know he is on Days. Why did they let him go? Did he want to leave? Ned is such an important character with Tracy and Paul in the Q mansion. Recast!

Today when I was watching Days I was stuck by the fact that I was seeing something I haven’t seen in a while, love. Whether it be as something as simple as Hope wiping blood off Aden’s face, or Doc and John taking a walk in the park or Victor hold Caroline’s hand–it was there and sincere. Now,granted those moments might not be as exciting as bomb going off in Horton’s square, but honestly it was very refreshing to see. I have no doubt if Days continues on that route it will soon pass GH in the ratings.

You seem to be out of the loop, Tammy. Bo is returning next month. Steve will arrive next week! Look at the comments where viewers are saying they recognize a familiarity to DAYS gone by. The new writers material aired midweek and their three episodes have already been a huge improvement of what had been written! Steve will be looking for Bo and he will be reunited with his family. I don’t know how long Peter Reckell will stay, but Bo’s absence will be explained and his stay will be in character. If and when Bo leaves again, the present… Read more »

I agree about Days; I loved the tender moments between Caroline and Victor! G.H. : I hate the mob activity on the show. I stopped watching G.H. for years when Sonny was allowed to wreak havoc on A.J. and the Q Family. The writers gave the mob all of the power and played the Qs as weak and powerless. They’re still glorifying the mob by having T.J. cling to Sonny instead of his mother; plus, favoring right over wrong. What person in his right mind would be happy living in a gangster’s house with danger all around? Also, they’re allowing… Read more »

BB’s pre-wedding fireworks were explosive! Maya’s father’s comments were inflammatory and current to how some people truly feel about the transgender an lesbian and gay issue. I believe that both sides show be truthfully verbalized ; however, Julius should have not attended the wedding feeling the way he does. Yet, his appearance was the fuel that ignited the smoldering fire.

Bold and the Beautiful ROCKS…excellent acting and drama…It’s what good daytime drama is all about.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
