RATINGS: DAYS falls to last place! Other soaps show gains!

The ratings are out for the week of October 10-14th and Days of our Lives did not have a good week.  The rebooted series fell into fifth place of the five network soaps and lost 107,000 viewers.  Although, when you look close at the numbers not many viewers separate #4 General Hospital to DAYS, just 5,000 to be exact!

The Young and the Restless received the biggest boost during the ratings period adding +282,000 viewers. The Bold and the Beautiful stayed at number two, but added +125,000 and One Life to Live stayed a number three and added +162,000 viewers from the previous week.

Days is on the right track. Hey, there are only five soaps left. There shouldn’t be a surprise with the flip-flopping.

U am surprised oltl gained. Th e show lost all of its monentun with the 2 Todds story. The Gigi story is a mess. Who cares who shot Victor now. The paternity is taking forever….everyone knows except Natalie and John. Even the dog knows. The Chew is a terrible lead in.

They should give EJAMI a chance!

Agreed, Avelina! That’s what I’ve love to see!

But, Days’ biggest problem right now is balance. The returning vets have all the air time, and the continuing actors have been shoved to the background. How can Days expect to hold on to their fans if they’re not getting any rewards? You can’t assume the audience who’ve been watching these past few years know who the vets are or care about them that much. Plus, did they bring back the right vets? John and Marlena make sense, and so does Jack if Jennifer is on, but Carrie and Austin? Uh-uh. Boring!

I’m surprised Days dropped in ratings. I think they could have kept Carly on the show and Chloe too. Maybe they will bring one or both of them back if the ratings don’t improve. Out of the stars that left those are the only ones I really miss. I also think that EJ has not been front and center like usual which might be a reason for some to tune out. Every fan is going to have their faves though and you can’t please everyone. I wish that Days could find a good balance though and attract viewers again because… Read more »

@Brian – Totally agree with you. Since the Days’ reboot, all of the returns are suddenly front and center. To me, that was too drastic. They need more balance. But I also think that the writing is far better and a quick turnaround in the ratings wasn’t going to happen overnight. If the stories get people talking, then the ratings will gradually increase. The main problem is I can’t see any of these stories right now drawing new viewers in. They need a buzz story and I don’t think “John as Bernie Madoff” or “EJ for Mayor” or “Rafe/Sami/Austin/Carrie” could… Read more »

I am so glad OLTL rebounded this week in the ratings. I am sure in true OLTL fashion that the revelation of Liam’s paternity will be a big event. I am assuming it’s going to happen at Natalie’s and Brody’s engagement party. Im sure OLTL will deliver it with a knock out punch. To me, OLTL can do no wrong. It has been on fire.

The ratings are bound to fluctuate a little bit. However it would help if storylines would move a little faster. Dragging out a storyline can cause viewers to become impatient. Also, I don’t watch other soaps. Many viewers may watch more than one. If Y&R, B&B or GH has a storyline that is climaxing, that could possibly cause a slight shift in the ratings. Attention spans are not what they used to be. So picking up the pace a little might help. But I don’t think there is anything to really worry about.

Bring back Crystal and Nadia, give them decent storylines – and the audience will follow

OLTL is smart because they seem to pick up steam especially when it seems to be getting stale. I know the baby’s paternity has been going for so long and it’s fustrating but that’s how soaps should be, keep us wondering if the climax is about to happen.
Todd’s story has picked up since he confessed to kiling Irene but who knows what will happen with him after shooting Victor (and proving he was brainwashed). Hell, Irene could be alive for all we know (I hope not!)
And I am glad to see Gigi awake and that story pick up also!

I agree with so much that has been said. I do think the storylines, characters, etc. are much better now, but they have to move the storylines a long more quickly or people get bored and lose interest. I think it is good that they have brought back some of the old characters, but they have to get into their storylines more, and they may need some tweaking to get them in the ‘groove.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
