RATINGS: DAYS Has Solid Week Adds Total Viewers And Up In Key Demos!

Courtesy/NBC

The ratings are out for the week of September 15th-19th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives which was the only network soap to gain in total viewers! DAYS tallied in at 2,534,000 adding +34,000!

Looks like as things were heating back up between Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott), Chad (Billy Flynn) was making his presence known in Salem, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) was trying to move on with her life away from Bo, and admitting she has feelings for Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove), Eric (Greg Vaughan) was making a sacrifice to help save John (Drake Hogestyn), these story points and other helped the series also show gains in the key Women’s demos as well: DAYS was up in Women 18-49 and Women 25-54!

In fact, DAYS was the only soap to gain viewers in the female 25-54 category.  And DAYS was also the only soap not to lose viewers in the 18-34 Women’s demo.

The Young and the Restless lost the most total viewers for the week losing -180,000 and dropping its 1st place lead to 4,522,000! And the number one soap also lost the most viewers in the women’s 25-54 demo!

General Hospital which was full of surprises on-screen during the ratings period was down in total viewers ever so slightly -7,000, but still close to the 3 million mark with 2,996,000!  In addition, GH added some viewers in the Women’s 18-49 and 18-34 demos. The Bold and the Beautiful lost viewers in all key demos, but only was down -9,000 in total viewers coming in for the week with 3,429,000.  Check out the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here!

Let us know, is DAYS piquing your interest right now? Which soap is making you want to tune-in each week?  Which soap is making you want to tune out? And if it is, how would you fix it? Comment below!

Days is always consistent I just look forward to it each and every day. I just love it! Young and Restless has been ok but I can miss a day and don’t care.

I stopped watching around 1988, 89. It became trashy and Jerry Springer-like.

Moved to ABC soaps and never looked back.

good to see Days is doing well. This was Days best week in a while. GH holding steady,ratings were low on Friday probably due to the NFL press conference. B&B needs some new stories. I’m sick of Hope,Liam,Wyatt triangle. They are wasting some actors. Y&R is the most boring soap right now. Subpar stories,and they are dragging on too long. Let’s hope Y&R’s new head writer can give us some good stories,and lift the snoozefest.

Oh, good grief, Robert…lol. Y&R has been great this past week. Phyllis is AWAKE!!!! And on the go!,,, we can already see how Phyllis’ determination put the wheels in motion. Nonethess, you are so right about Days. I was very much impressed by Theresa and her exceptional acting. Her face is an open book. You can literally see and smell the fear in her changing expressions…her fear is palpable…WHAT A PERFORMANCE!!!! I am, however, somewhat concerned, in that, if she is found out, it will be the end for this character. So, inasmuch as I feel guilty even thinking this….I… Read more »

Oh, I more than disagree. I hope John does remember everything. Then I hope he persuades Marlena to keep his secret so the two of them can trap Theresa in her web of lies. I want John and Marlena to lead “poor” little Theresa down the garden path to her own destruction; right to Victor’s doorstep. Don’t forget, Brady is Victor’s grandson. He will happily takeTheresa apart for what she did to both John and Brady.

Great post, Patrick–thank you for your efforts. And I concur, Cee Cee,
The Phyllis return is being handled very well and I think I am going to like Gina’s Phyllis even better than Michelle’s. Gina has a way of conveying an almost scary sense of determination which makes me shudder for both Kelly and Sharon. The bitch is back.
It does sound like GH is delivering and I most likely will return to watch Billy Miller as Jason, Fluke and of course, Luke, who I dearly miss.

Hi, Mary Lynn. I can enumerate Theresa’s evil-doing along with you. You are absolutely right. I am not trying to absolve the character’s ‘evils’. But, Jen Lilley is an absolute flawless and stellar actress, deserving an Emmy. That was my point. I would rather see her on my screen than John and that weird thing he does with his eyes. Plus, Theresa is trying….she’s just scared. If only she had a positive, good person to guide her instead of the bad influence of an older sister and twisted supervisor (Anne). And, if we get down to the nitty gritty, Theresa… Read more »

I have stuff to with my time so I can only watch 2 soaps.. lol
I FF through most of Y&R so it takes me about 10 to watch..
I never FF through GH, just saying 😉 ..

Good that DOOL is coming up it seems to have a loyal following!!

My friend watches B&B and says it’s been awful and she hardly tunes in..

I have kept true to my word… and am only recording, Y&R friday eps only

not one thing kept my attention

even, nuPhyllis lamed me out

what does intrigue some… is Neil blindness…. LOL… what potential for intrigue of the senses… what a daring romp … a lesson for Neil

this lesson with nuWIFE and his “step”son, 2 billion dollar “man” Devon…. is duller than dull

not one story…. course, it’s only friday eps… but… I daresay…

I was more interested in the Nikki and nuDRINKING “bud’ ding ” friend go where

Hmmm, Patrick…that is where we have a difference of opinion. I am enthralled by the Phyllis storyline right now. I await the ‘meeting’…..when Jack and she come face to face…I actually get chills. I hope the writers make this ‘finally here’ meeting remarkable and unforgivable.

Neil? Well, what a lost cause! Poor guy can’t catch a break…..boring repetition. He has no luck with his wives. First, Drucilla cheats on him with his brother…now, his present wife with his son? ….the most boring actor on daytime.

As yourself, I am looking forward to more scenes between Nikki and Maureen.

I agree–Y&R is doing much better. Patrick, not sure what you mean when you say nuPhyllis “Lamed” you out. Is that a good thing? Also, I LOVE Mariah. She is the female Adam–conflicted, angry, hurt, defensive and terribly vulnerable. It occurred to me that it’s time to bring back Danial as a potential love interest for Mariah. Considering her twin sister Cassie had a huge crush on him and was driving his drunken self home when she encountered the deadly crash, I think a romance between the two would be really interesting. And I always really liked Danial. With the… Read more »

And, Patrick? We agree on Maura West…but she’s bad. Will we see a new and ‘revised edition’? We shall see.
What really kills me is when Sonny tells Carly that Ava WILL pay for what she has done…..oh, yes, I agree. But, what about himself? Why should he get away with killing AJ?… .my beloved AJ!!! Methinks Sonny is too full of his superlative self……so omnipotent that he is allowed to get away with every dastardly crime he commits. …..voila’, Patrick…that’s how I feel.

@harry: I think that by ‘lamed out’, Patrick means that he was disinterested with Y&R, specifically Phyllis. To each his own, I guess. But, au contraire, I found Gina/Phyllis overwhelmingly on the mark. I sized her up…thinking she would never be en par with Michelle Stafford. But, in a short span of time, she reeled me in and held my attention with every nuance in her facial expressions. After all these months, I can finally look forward to watching some real action instead of sanctimonious Christine; sacrificial lamb Neil; almost-a-man-but-not-quite-yet Devon, making puppy eyes at Hillucifer; desperately-seeking-vodka Nikki etc. whew… Read more »

GH is really silly right now, but keeps me tuned in with the hope that Sonny gets what is coming to him. B & B needs new story lines stat. I can go months without watching and miss nothing. The Liam/Hope saga played out long ago and they are just ruining the characters to come up with ways to keep it going. Between the repeat dialogue and flashbacks, this show is not worth watching for me.

It is however very dark drama and way out of the traditional soap box…

It is full of variety but nothing silly .. 🙂

I just don’t want any thing… ANY : thing : else happening to Maura West’ Ava

I thought she was already written in to a corner.. via AJ death…. and now.. more trivialized hate… via Jason

Maura West is GH
Eileen Davidson is DAYS
Kelly Sullivan is Y&R

I can’t believe we have all this treasure

So I guess the Pickle Lila was the opposite of silly? It was a dignified and serious story.
Listen, calling GH silly is not stretch any more than it is an insult. Those who are calling it silly love it despite its silliness.

Okay, people freezing and being brought back to life is not silly? Anna Devine’s running of the PD is not silly? Sonny’s caricature of a mob moss is not silly? Milo and Epiphany, not silly? Obrecht as chief of staff of a major hospital, not silly? A murderous Cassadine head of the WSB, not silly? Dark drama? My foot!

Days is up because EJami is together again. They’ve always been ratings gold & the ratings go up when they’re together. Imagine how good the show could have been doing if not for the EJabby debacle. Sadly, Ali & James will be riding off into the sunset in a couple of weeks & I don’t believe the current storylines will help ratings very much. Dannifer is awful & loathed by most people. Ericole is just boring, as is the whole Jordan, Ben & Clyde story. Even Kristen has been mostly wasted this time around.

CeeCee

You’re right, Chloe. I had surmised that it was inescapable that EJami would once again be together, as a family. They will leave for parts unknown due to either imminent danger, or go on an extended vacation. …..how will the ratings hold up after that? We agree on Dannifer. Daniel thinks he’s so righteous and God’s gift to women, children, and, well….to the human race. Jenny? What’s with the hair? A bun?????? Women with thin lips should not wear red lipstick. It looks like someone just drew two lines where her mouth is……..don’t the hair and makeup people know that?… Read more »

I’ve only been watching Days for a few months and I have to say I really enjoy it. I spent 2 years watching Y&R and trying to get into it. I finally had to give it up. It just didn’t hold my attention. Days is so much more alive. Things are happening. The characters have lives and you care what happens to them. I enjoy the stories. The acting is great. I am certainly going to miss Allison Sweeney and James Scott. They are terrific. My pal Kassie DePaiva is raising hell as Eve and I love it. And I’m… Read more »

Luke is in Miscavage the mental hospital in Port Charles. The clinic that exploded was Crichton Clark in a different town. 2 different places. Miscavage is the mental hospital in Port Charles that houses Heather although she manages to escape all the time. Since Robin Mattson is supposed to be back on screen soon it could involve her saving Luke but not sure that Tony Geary is back taping scenes as I know he had a major back operation that has kept him off screen longer than expected(except for a few scenes he taped before he left)

DAYS and GH are the soaps I watch consistently. Though I have watched all shows the past few. weeks. The CBS shows are ridiculous. GH is silly, but entertaining…you can tell what is Ron’s style. The writing on DAYS is superior to any of the other shows IMO. That is why I prefer it. Heterosexual are my ratings still:

1. DAYS
2. GH
3 B&B
4. Y&R

@4ever: Eileen Davidson is the epitome of beauty, class, thespianism and personability. Her rendition of an urchin-like, white elephant Susan is nonpareil. I have never enjoyed watching Eileen perform more.

I record Days as it is on opposite GH here in the midwest. This allows me the luxury of FF through every scene Sami is in. There are a couple of other characters I find deathly boring and their scenes also get the benefit of my finger on the FF button.

So glad to see DAYS gaining a little steam..I started watching in 2012 and its just been entertaining even when at times the story lines drag on and on and the show’s current supercouple Jennifer/Daniel are kept apart for one reason or the other. It has been the best soap the last couple of years, for the most part (when GH is written well, it tops any show) and with a smaller cast than GH and Y&R. The head honchos at DAYS, should try anything in their powers to bring Roger Howarth to the show..He is not a good fit… Read more »

Great job, Y&R and B&B. Both shows are very good right now. Y&R is finally looking like a Bill Bell soap again. Who would have thought his own daughter-in-law would trash his legacy, only to have it semi-saved by JFP. Hopefully Mr. Pratt won’t ruin all the improvements that have been made. Just a note to those who call Y&R slow moving and boring. I sort of get that because it doesn’t cater to the frozen world, demonic possession crowds. It is indeed slow moving, but it’s not boring. It’s just a more sophisticated show catered to a specific audience… Read more »

Like I said, Y&R has a less vocal audience. It’s always been that way. Thread postings don’t equal ratings. Y&R has a different demographic, pure and simple. It’s obviously a larger, much larger demographic, than GH has. That’s not to be insulting. It just means different people have different viewing and posting habits. I just think people need to get over GH not being top rated anymore. In the 25 plus years since GH has lost its short lived top ranking, numerous other shows have moved in front of it: AMC, DAYS, B&B, OLTL, etc. Meanwhile, Y&R has been numerically… Read more »

I came back to DAYS last week after many years because GH has been putting me to sleep.

I am not surprised to see DAYS as the only soap to gain viewers, at least where I stand, as I watch the only other three left on the air, but now I am watching all four. But GH has become boring to me with the majority of the stories currently running.

I find each soap has it own flavor and depending on your mood that soap will resonate with you– if you want romance then watch B&B- although it is the same romance story being told over and over, at least there is actual romance on this show. If you want cops and robbers, murder, with a dash of humor and a passionate kiss or hot bedroom scene thrown into the mix every now and then– watch GH. If you want the day to day drama of the lives of the rich and not so famous check out Y&R, but if… Read more »

I know every time one of those scenes comes on where Ridge is guiding her hand to draw my television is also smoking from all the heat these two produced. I must admit, as much as a part of me will always think of Ronn Moss as Ridge– I sincerely doubt he could have pulled off that smoldering sexuality this new guy has in these scenes. It is their relationship that helps me endure the endless triangle of Hope Liam and Wyatt.

Sure, Mary…the same could be said about GH….except the box of chocolates is a lot bigger and nuttier with fudge and vanilla swirls.

I love the smaller cast, balance, and consistency of DOOL! The writing regime has really worked hard to get the show back on track-focusing on its core characters and families, the hospital, relationships, and romances. I absolutely love Eileen Davidson as Kristen Dimera. I would love to have the fearless demeanor (and style) of Kate Roberts! Love Casey Moss as JJ! I always have loved Deidre Hall as Dr. Marlena Evans! I love most of the cast! I’m happy the show is doing well! & I am beginning to like nuChad (nuWill-not so much).

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

Photo: JPI

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.

DAYS Mary Beth Evans & Stephen Nichols with Guest Ron Carlivati Talk Stayla’s Greatest Hits & Approach To Scripts During COVID-19

This week is a pivotal one for Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) on Days of our Lives.  Will they be reunited once again?

To take a stroll down memory lane of reunions past, Mary Beth Evans along with her longtime on-screen scene partner and dear friend, Stephen Nichols, watched back key scenes from the history of Stayla and offered up a second viewing experience as they commented on the clips.

Later, Mary Beth and Stephen are joined by their surprise guest and it is revealed to be Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati!

In her tweet, Evans announced: “Since we’re evidently leading up to something big on #Days … Stephen Nichols and I thought we’d get together & watch some of our reunions from the past. And, we were lucky enough to have a very special guest join us for a chat! #patchandkaylaforever”

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.
