RATINGS: DAYS & GH show strong gains!

The ratings are out for the week of August 15-19th 2011 and there was good news for the folks in Salem and Port Charles! Days of our Lives showed the strongest total viewers gains with adding +147,000 viewers, while General Hospital also did quite well adding +125,000 viewers for the ratings period.

The Bold and the Beautiful also showed some gains adding +25,000 viewers and retaining its spot at number two, followed closely by One Life to Live who lost -84,000 viewers that week, but who still holds in the number three spot!

The basement position this week in at #6 belongs to the canceled All My Children, who is winding down its network television run on ABC…and still at number one, The Young and the Restless, who is still above the rest of the pack, even though it also lost -73,000 viewers for the week.

Ms. Bell you want to get back on track I have a bucket full of storylines that the fans would love with the characters that they love. I just might have to get in touch with her before she ruins my favorite show!!!!

I also want to add and I expect to get in a lot of trouble for this!!! Eric Braeden & Sharon Case’s chemistry is off the chart and there is 30 years difference in their ages but boy what I would love to see the look on old Nicky and Adam baby boys if Daddy made her the manor of the house what a hoot!!!!

I think you could be right on this one. Look at B&B the sister soap of Y&R. They do these types of couples all the time, I see no reason why Sharon and Victor couldn’t have at least a fling. Put some excitement back on this show.

Crystal Chappell’s portrayal of Carly Manning’s attempt to quit taking drugs cold turkey, played four of the five days during this ratings period. I think her remarkable performances may be why Days had such good numbers. Hard not to watch and look forward to seeing her brilliance conveyed across the screen.

I agree that CC is doing a bang up job in these scenes. My only wish was that she was staying with the show. CC is one of the best actresses in this genre. I think her character was just not given the right material until it was too late and then they decided to let her go. Oh well I will enjoy her while I can and then watch her on Venice. I still love DOOL though. 🙂

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
