Y&R is just not that good to be #1 for decades, some years were terrible.
There has to be something rigged with its ratings for it be near 5 million.
Y&R can no way be #1 for decades, it is not probable; the soap is simply not that good.
CBS airs their soaps internationally in 32 countries and some how that must have an effect of their numbers.

GH airing in USA and Canada is an excellent soap and the best soap, by far..
((I am a fan of both Y&R and GH and watch both..

I’m happy for GH and the fans! I love DOOL, but I’m not a fool.
I know GH is cool, but HOT also!!!

“General Hospital” has literally been on fire here lately. I have been watching this show since 1992 and I honestly think it is on par with the excellent stories “GH” was showcasing around 1994 and 1995. Yes, THAT good.

“Days of Our Lives” on the other hand. Quit that show way back in 1987 when it started becoming the soap opera version of “The Jerry Springer Show.” Never looked back.

DAYS has gone through many facelifts over the past 26 years. Give it a fair shot today before you knock it. You might be pleasantly surprised. Personally, I think the stories over the past year have been the strongest they’ve been in many, many years. Overall, this show has been so entertaining, so satisfying, so engaging and exciting over the year, with great umbrella stories that have interesting layers, reach fantastic climaxes, spawn other great stories, involve many characters and give the actors juicy material to play with.

If you love good soap, then what it was like when Reagan was president shouldn’t have any bearing on what it is like today. I’m only one person and it’s only my opinion, but I couldn’t be prouder of the soap it’s producing these days.

Days of Our Lives is great and stronger than ever (largely in part) because of WILSON and the Producers know that – that’s why they want to make sure that the role of Will
continues to go on after the upcoming New Year.

I hope you’re a fan of DAYS as a whole.

Without Wilson there is no DAYS and I am certain a deliberate move in that direction is coming soon or DAYS is done in general.Check next ratings without Chandler.

You do NOT know what you are talking about! DAYS has never been all about one thing. Many people contribute to the successes and failures
of DOOL. Chandler/Will does not make or break DAYS. No one does!!!

Glad ratings are up. Just keep getting tired of only hearing about the key demo. Remember it’s all the rest of us that aren’t in the demo that have helped keeps soaps afloat over the years. Show us some respect!

So happy to see the ratings increased for ALL soaps..I have a great feeling that soaps will be continuing to make a surge and hopefully the younger generation will increase and make the genre relevant again and eventually further increase the ratings where MAYBE serial dramas can expand in daytime or maybe bring iconic soaps back in television/internet, like Prospect Park is doing or did with AMC/OLTL.

4everDAYS

I wish the ratings reflected the high entertainment value. DOOL and GH
should be way higher in the ratings! I’m not saying YawneR should go
down. The other hourlong soaps should just be obove YackeR. Maybe
next YeaR.

GH and DAYS are doing awesome. Both shows are great, and I wish their numbers were higher. It’s hard to believe that a show can stay on nowadays with only 2 to 3 million viewers, but I guess TV is saturated, and I’m not sure the rating system is accurate anyway. Y&R was my favorite all the way up until the late 00’s, early 10’s, but it has been systematically destroyed by the axis of awful show runners: LML, MAB, JFP. Maybe Y&R should hire their next show runner with only one first name and one last name, like Jared ********. LOL. Y&R DESERVED to be number one from the 80’s until about 2006. It WAS the best soap. Now, DAYS and GH deserve the accolades, and more people should watch. I took in B&B today, just for background noise. I can see the appeal, but the show is beyond trash, and maybe that’s the purpose, “pedigreed” people behaving badly. I know Hope is not a very old character, as Deacon wasn’t on THAT long ago, but the adult version is quite the stunning beauty. Watching her walk that runway in all her beauty and glory had my chin on the floor. I guess that’s why it’s called “The Bold and the Beautiful.

I thought B&B was some kind of soap parody. ONE BIG JOKE. People
should run their hands through the sands!

REPLAY: Days of our Lives 53rd Anniversary Facebook Live Event From The Set: A Special Tribute, Preview Of The DOOL App & Fun Moments with the Cast!

It’s been a big week for Days of our Lives, culminating in Saturday’s annual Day of Days event with the fans and the cast in celebration of the long-running daytime dramas 53 years on the air!

Late last week, a fun and never-before-seen Facebook Live event kicked-off the last several days of fun, and was hosted on the NBC official Facebook for Days of our Lives.

It was during the live event that fans were treated to some behind the scenes access, and several previews of the new DOOL app that was also released on all mobile devices the day of the series anniversary on Thursday

During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Later, following John and Marlena’s nuptials on-air, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn along with Mary Beth Evans, James Reynolds, and host for the segment, Martha Madison, chatted about the long-awaited wedding for Jarlena fans.

Bill and Susan Hayes were on-hand to tell the audience all about the “Video Vault” section of the new DOOL app, where fans can find classic clips from DAYS history.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.

Several cast members took part in a special tribute honoring the late Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady), which was an emotional high point of the event. Eric Martsolf led several key members of the cast who worked with Peggy, as they shared remembrances of this one-of-a-kind actress.   Later, Galen Gering, Lauren Koslow, Nadia Bjorlin and Eric Martsolf did a little “Show and Tell” preview of some of their videos inside the new DOOL app.

Martha Madison returned to the backstage celebration where cast and crew took photos against the step and repeat for the series 53rd anniversary and the launch of the DOOL app.  Madison chatted with several cast and producers who stopped by including returning fan favorite, Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux).

The facebook live event concluded when Stephanie Sloane walked into the celebration with the cast as they gave a big “Thank you” to the fans for keeping the show on the air, and telling them to check out the new DOOL app for all the exclusive, fun content now and in the days and months ahead.
