RATINGS: DAYS Doldrums, While GH Only Soap To Increase Total Viewers And Demos!

The ratings are out for the week of May 23 through the 27th, and hardest hit was NBC’s Days of our Lives.  Unfortunately, the series hit multiple all-time lows, according to the latest Nielsen data.  In total viewers, DAYS tallied an average of 2,081,000.  Their previous series low was 2,154,000 back for the week of April 13-17 of 2015.  In addition, the long-running series also hit all-time lows in womens demo 18-34 and 18-49, in terms of total viewers and ratings share.

Over at General Hospital, it looks like the GH Nurses’ Ball and adjacent storylines helped the ABC daytime drama series perk up.  GH was the only one of the four network daytime soaps to increase viewership with a solid +122,000 bringing its weekly average to 2,886,000.  In addition, GH was the only soap to add viewers in the womens 18-34, 18-49, and 25-54 categories.

Meanwhile over at CBS Daytime, The Young and the Restless also took a hit down -122, 000 from its previous week and losing viewers in all key demos.  Its sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful was less hit losing -77,000 for the week.

While the last week of May was not its best, CBS heralded in a press release that for the entire May Sweeps period it was the highest sweeps ratings for The Bold and the Beautiful since 2008, and the most-watched season of The Young and the Restless since 2009.  They went on to say that The Young and the Restless (4.80m, up +2%) had its most-watched May since 2010, and The Bold and the Beautiful (3.77m) was up +2% in viewers from a year ago and most-watched May since 2008.

It might help Days if it wasn’t filmed in near total darkness. Turn on a couple of lights for God’s sake! The writing is generally quite good, especially some of the humorous dialogue. The acting is generally excellent with a few notable exceptions. However the show lacks energy overall. Between the pacing and the darkness it can tend to be less than compelling.

I’m with you on the darkness factor, Mr M. It especially doesn’t make sense when they have one of the best looking casts on soaps, particularly the men. Why not let them shine? And, unlike GH, they don’t seem to require men with great hair to keep getting buzz cuts!

I totally agree, the lighting is horrendous.

I also wonder if they are filming in high definition? They are they only soap that seems to be filmed through yellow cheesecloth.

They need to lighten up in other ways, too. It’s so depressing.

I’m watching today’s show right now and having to endure a screaming infant and a barely visible Kate hiding in the bushes like Arte Johnson on Laugh-In. Verrrry interesting….

Dr Helen Ruth
Guest

Other soaps will keep the crying babies to a minimum. Days will let the screaming take over the dialogue and drown it out, as does the “background” music which makes it impossible to hear the actors.
Kate was so obvious and visible. It was laughable.

General Hospital is my soap. It has hands-down the best cast in daytime. However the writing has rarely been worse than it is right now. I’m talking about the stories they are choosing to tell and the way they are telling them. A lot of the material is actually an insult to the viewer’s intelligence. It’s almost as if they go to air with stories before all the plot points or even the resolutions have been worked out in advance. Interest cannot be sustained when plot lines meander and characters vanish for long periods of time. More and more characters… Read more »

GH took the easy way out when it came to Jason .. just make him Jason Morgan again, don’t give him any layers or nuance, play to the simplistic formula many of the fans want .. Jason the enforcer, Sonny the godfather, Sam the mob moll. It’s just not interesting to those of us who’d like to see some character development, a new side to Jason coming out, perhaps develop his Quartermaine side .. nope, that doesn’t play well to fans of the mob. Those are the fans GH caters to now. That’s why I’m out.

You hit on some major problems, Mr M. I also enjoy the show daily for the wonderful actors and overall excellence. But WHY are there so many accessory characters? We all know sometimes they’re needed to advance particular stories. But why do we have to keep them when they’re just not clicking? And when they DO show long term potential, like Rosalie, they abandon them AND the stories they rode in on. Regarding the Jason story, I adore Billy Miller and refuse to place any blame on him. To be honest, both he and Kelly Monaco look like they’re fighting… Read more »

I agree, Timmmy. Fluke creeped me out, I must admit. And I expressed my dislike in more than a mouthful. Nonetheless, I also praised the acting. Anthony was volcanic, for lack of a more suitable word. He definitely deserved the Emmy for that creation. Jason? You bet, Timmmy. I cannot follow that cadaverous character. It seems that Billy Miller’s ( my hero) input is dead. Breathe some life and dimension into the character….is he told to act without spirit? He simply demoralizes me. And, so does Sam….too serious and morose. What a couple!! For that, I concur with Soaphound. I… Read more »

DAYS is the only soap I know that will tell a story that NO ONE cares about forever. All these new characters thrown in that few people care about. The writing sucks. The cast is asleep through most of it. What used to be quick paced and lively has turned into a snoozefest. I watch DAYS once a week and see I am missing nothing. The stories are boring with no points or well thought out plots. The villains are far to campy. And most of the time they just tell old stories with new actors. The Joey story with… Read more »

Harry

Yes, and it’s fine if one story is boring because you can fast forward through it until you get to the stories which do interest you. But when one boring story dominates the whole show, one invariably turns it off. That’s why the ratings for Y&R are down. The whole Victor tormenting Adam and Chelsey from prison is just redundantly dull.

I started watching DAYS in 1995, so it’s my baby and I grew up with it. However, my viewing has become sporadic since February, and with a sad soap heart, I took it off my DVR this week. The stories are going nowhere. Victor and Maggie are a half-step away from a nursing home, and do nothing except sit in their robes and let Summer swindle them. They aren’t writing anything for John and Marlena. Steve and Kayla go round and round. I enjoy Shawn and Belle, but there’s no point getting too invested in them at this point. There… Read more »

At this point, Vincent Irizarry is my only reason for sticking with Days. He was outstanding on All My Children. So, I know he can deliver great work when given quality material. I keep waiting. Unfortunately, like with Melissa Archer, TPTB at Days don’t appear to know what to do with him.

And I so agree with you Mandy. Please Days producers turn on some lights.

Days best episode was on Wednesday when Peter Reckell was on screen with Kristian Alfonso. The problem with Days right now is so many actors are leaving there is no one to root for as a couple either. The storylines move too slow and they are wasting Vincent Irizarry’s talent should have tested him with Judi Evans and played on their chemistry. Storylines are boring I switched to General Hospital more exciting right now……and I have been watching Days for over 25 years:(

My household watches Y&R, Days and GH faithfully. Not always crazy about storylines but stick around long enough and they’ll get better. All soaps go through their highs and lows. They also have great characters and some you’d be happy to see leave. Just grateful soaps are still on. May they grow again as they did in the 80s.

At Y&R, it is time to cut quite a few of stories that are not working: Billy & Phyllis, the possible pairing of Jack and Hillary, Hillary blackmailing everyone, Victor and Meredith (UGH – but love the actress!). I have followed her from Another World and primetime, and she deserves a better storyline than this! There’s a rumor that a behind the scenes shake-up is coming and I hope it is true!

I say they bring Jill back on a more permanent basis. I can almost guarantee the ratings went up in May to the wonderful, but ufortunate way to short appearance of Jess Walton. As a fan of the show since the mid eighties, I say bringing Jill back with hubby in tow would give the show a must needed boost. Jill’s catfight scenes with Hillary were some of the best in a long while. Jill could easily be part of t th e foundation. She was always worried about Devon and Katherine’s money, not to mention a bit jealous. She… Read more »

Days destroyed itself by going dark & hateful and cruel for their celebration. The systematic destruction of the Bradys & the Hortons in favor of the Hernandez family represents total destruction. Add to that amoral writing, petty favoritism and zero respect for the show’s legacy or fans, and the ratings make perfect sense. No joy. No romance. No hope. Why would anyone watch? At this point, they could bring back Will, Eric and the reanimated corpses of Tom and Alice Horton, and most viewers would still never trust the show again. There’s nothing to invest in.

They made Chase a rapist and Joey a murderer. I know people don’t like the recast of Ciara, but they really should have not thrown any of the new teens into the deep end of the pool and given them grotesque, amoral stories that a seasoned actor would have trouble selling. Making Chase a rapist just seemed spiteful and another way Higley was getting revenge not he previous regime. The Chase and Ciara friendship was popular with fans. Why pour acid on it? Oh yeah, they were about destructiveness. And Will. He drove the action in the Pillson triangle,made things… Read more »

The GH Nurses’ Ball was the reason for the jump.
Weekly ratings mean nothing.
Weekly ratings are used as a game for the to bitch whine and moan…..LOL

As seen, the Y&R ratings went down for the week but was the highest of the month.
The Y&R month May was highest since 2009..

As far as the ratings actually having great meaning are the Sept to Sept ratings.
Weekly ratings are the bitch whine and moan game .. ahaaaa!

Days went right back to where they were last year, horrible ratings especially when compared to 3rd place GH. I don’t think there is a way to turn it around this time. Ken Corday wanted Dena Higley back and her horrible stories are a cancer on the show.

Stephen

They are LOWER than last year! And these are all-time historic lows. 11% down in total viewers since this time last year, 47% down in the young women’s demographic, and down in all the female demos. And for the last fifteen weeks in a row the young women’s rating has been at an all-time low. It should also be remembered that Tomsell’s ratings were on the road to recovery, before Griffley took over – and Griffley didn’t get a rise until they had high-profile returns and the huge publicity of the 50th – which they clearly have squandered.

What is funny is last time days was number 3 and 2 in ratings was when Dena was the head writer back in 2009. Guess what folks Dena has not written on the show since Feb. 2016 and want return to head writing until after the Olympics. Its has been Josh and Beth Milstein.

Isn’t Higley’s name still on the credits? I imagine Higley and Griffith co-wrote the bible for their intended co-writership, and Griffith and Milstein worked to that – hence Higley’s name on the credits.

Dena Higley did a lot of damage to the show whilst working with Griffith, and the show is feelling that damage now. Talking of Josh Griffith, Ken Corday said this of him on his departure: “I wrote him a two-page letter just thanking him for basically pulling us out of the bubbling pot. The show was about to go over the edge, into the abyss, and he and Dena together pulled us out …. They turned the show around. The audience for the show grew 50 percent in the demographic and that is huge.” And now we know, now that… Read more »

Well said, Steven. Days had so much going for it. It had popular couples. It had a sense of nostalgia and excitement. It had goodwill, with people wanting it to survive. Why Ken Corday thought two unoriginal and mean hacks like Dena & Josh could save the show is beyond me. Nearly everything they did was completely inappropriate and insulting for a celebration. They pandered to the worst and meanest impulses of the audience and they got rid of a number of important legacy characters that were important to the canvas, especially Will and Eric. Why they thought the boring… Read more »

This was one of the most disappointing sweeps in memory. I normally look forward to May because the soaps usually bring their A game, but not this time. Days is obviously just filling time until August when the new writers stuff will air. Josh’s stuff was most likely dumped, or reworked just to keep the show afloat until after the Olympics and it is showing– what normally should take a day or two has been stretched out to an entire week or weeks in some cases, the pacing is so slow even turtles are saying, Dude speed it up— and… Read more »

Doldrums? Try historic lows in total viewers and all the tracked demographics. During May sweeps! Try Jack’s hyped return being a total flop. Try a 47% drop from last year in the 18-34 demo. Remember when you and the read of the obsequious and pathetic soap media declared Days saved and revived? How long did those modest gains last? Six weeks, tops – then total collapse. I suppose we can expect a “the new regime will save days and the cast is excited” article by next week, right?

Can’t seem to wrap my arms around Days these days. Seems to be all over the place with too many new characters that you do not feel close to yet. They need better storytelling to make you become invested in the storylines and want to watch. The cast is doing a good job, but something is missing on the show. They should have fewer more developed storylines going on, so you want to watch to see what happens next. It feels disjointed now. At this point, I only watch every once in awhile whereas before I watched fairly regularly.

I enjoyed this Nurses Ball more than I have in a number of years. I thought the entertainment was better, and the drama surrounding the Ball was compelling with the mystery about who drugged Lucas and Bobbie, and the mystery about what happened to Nikolas. They gave us the camp that we’ve all come to expect from the Nurses Ball, but also some poignant, emotional moments like Robin’s speech, and Anna dancing the tango with Duke one last time. It had a little something for everyone. Really thought the episodes were well done. Glad to see the ratings reflect that.

But I almost don’t believe B&B had its best sweeps since 2008. Show sucks right now! Half the stories are just repeats with minor twists so they can claim they are “new”. And it’s beyond predictable. Every single story going on right now is predictable. You see where it’s going from miles away! B&B I have watched for a long time so I can honestly say I’m not impressed whatsoever.

Rope has dominated the episodes for months and the ratings have continued to fall for months. It was great they brought Daniel Cosgrove back. Haiden fans came back and ratings in key demos went up. Then we see (and GG spoils) that Aiden is just a means to promote Rope. Haiden fans screwed over yet again and we’re not watching. Ratings back down. Dena Higley is determined to make Rafe the leading man. New actors hired to invade the canvas with Hernandez. Fan faves fired and we get the Rope show. Bye Days.

I don’t like the Jade-Joey storyline and then going to the commune and having Joey become even more of a criminal than he was only made it worse. I don’t care about Dario. Wish he’d leave and he can take Summer with him. Bringing Aiden back wasn’t particularly smart. Having Chase rape Ciara was a bad move. Casting Vivian as Ciara was an even worse move. The girl cannot act, yet they give her a lot of story. Please recast this role. I am not… Read more »

As everyone wrings their hands about the lack of interest in daytime drama, I have to wonder if we as audiences are to blame too with our constant hunger for spoilers and insider information — granted I like a good share of it, too — we have lost a genuine sense of surprise regarding our programs. I also think we need to look at corporate hierarchies with their concerns for budgets, Q factors, and a desperate effort to make everything seem the same. As for DAYS, my soap since losing others in 2010 and 2012, I do notice the darkness… Read more »

I quote you “There is great drama in daily life as much as horrific deaths and murders and baby swap and doppelganger, tropes …” There is pleasure in happy times, happiness, and the rising above the troubles of daily life. There is humor once in a while that is such a pleasure. There seems to be a lack of core characters which glue the programs together. I wouldn’t watch “Friends” without the friends. Enough said. I always enjoy reading comments. It seems we all like soaps. For me every time the stories begin to open my eyes something dulls them.… Read more »

Many fans wanted Days to kill of Will (and others) and wreck havoc. Now they’re crying Boo Hoo! Too bad. Days is almost beyond saving … in fact, it may be beyond saving. And the show has only itself to blame. Hate is no way to celebrate a 50th Anniversary!

GH was just great in that last week of May. Good ratings report to close out May sweeps for GH! Third straight week the show was up in viewership (+51,000, +18,000, and +112,000) and hopefully that will continue. GH gets a passing grade from me for the month of May. The first week was pretty boring and uneventful but the next three weeks were entertaining and eventful so overall I would give a B+ cause that second week and fourth week had a little bit of everything you could ask for in an hour. We had some entertaining, compelling, complex,… Read more »

Okay, I can only speak for myself ~ when ABC-TV cancelled ALL MY CHILDREN, and then the on-line re-launch didn’t really fly, I chose Days of Our Lives as a soap to follow. At first, it was great with Will, Sammi, Sonny and Paul and Paige as the shy daughter of Eve. Then, one by one these characters dropped off the canvas and were replaced with the astonishingly uninteresting Belle and her whiney daughter (who should restrict any further vocal efforts to the shower) and the duller than dishwater Phillip. What I once viewed as an innovative soap depicting gay… Read more »

I wished Valerie was on more during May. Where’s the family scenes for the other families. where’s the friendship at. When will Valerie have more scenes with her family. General Hospital can get boring sometimes.

I wish they would re cast Jordan. The actress who plays her is dreadful. She clicks around in her high heels slipping her hair extensions around while smirking like a teenager. She does not act the way one would imagine a police commissioner to act–seriously and with dignity.
I think the actress who played Evanjolene from OLTL would be perfect as Jordan.

the end of Days is near. the show is so bad. no romance,just darkness. they need to turn some lights on because i can’t see anything. Y&R needs a regime change. the show is a snoozefest,too many bad storylines. Y&R saw a small bump with Sage’s death,now their ratings are going down again

If you look at all the posts and the length of them, you can see people are very invested and passionate about the show, so Days has a significant audience, but the show is Dark both figuratively and literally, and seems to be turning people off including this viewer that wants to watch, but puts the show on and it is dark storylines, revolving door casts that you just cannot connect and invest in it. Give us more stable storylines and the vet cast and we will watch. We want Days to stay on, but give us the nostalgia and… Read more »

Amen, Rj. I don’t care one iota about Rafe’s parents, or the impending arrival of ‘the friend’. A love interest for Rafe? Is this a stupid attempt to sidetrack Rafe from sniffing at Hope’s skirts? And, those teens!!!! Golly gee!! Don’t get me wrong; I love having youth on any show….but, allow these kids to act their age; have fun; have parties; go to school dances and events. Girls talking about boys in a positive way. Rape in not an everyday word of conversation. They should be discussing THE WEEKND; ONE DIRECTION….talk about hair and make up. You know, what… Read more »

I would say looks like it’s lights out for Days, but from some posts it sounds like they’ve already turned the lights out. Not a great way to save on the budget, sets, etc. Just because viewers can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s good, and I would say the ratings reflect that. You can only step on most people so many times before they get that you only think they’re good for a doormat. All the soaps need to have a little respect for their viewers!

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
