RATINGS: Days of our Lives Climbs To #2 Spot In Key 18-49 Demo

In the latest Nielsen ratings for the week of December 9-13th, it looks like Days of our Lives time jump may be paying off!

After weeks of various preemptions for all network soaps from the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, it hasn’t been an easy time for soap fans to often locate their favorite fictional towns on regular television, so they either had to wait it out till episodes were being post on network .com’s or apps, or had to wait another day to view the regularly scheduled episode.

All that said, Days of our Lives landed in the #2 spot in the key womens 18-49 demo for the week.  Only. The Young and the Restless (0.44) was above DAYS (0,42) in that demo.  While Y&R was in first and DAYS in second, B&B and GH tied for third place (0.40).

Advertisers look at the 18-49 demo as one of the most lucrative for them when choosing programs to run their spots in, as do network executives.

Back on November 8th, centering around Days of our Lives’ 54th anniversary, the series kicked off a year fast-forward which thrust many of the characters into new sets of circumstances and romances, as the audience now awaits to see just how things ended up the way they are now.

Head writer, Ron Carlivati has designed the time jump to be a can’t-miss-an-episode story, or you might miss a key clue to how things have been shaken up in Salem.

So, what do you think of DAYS jumping to #2 in the womens 18-49 demo?  Is it a signal of a upward turn for the series as it begins 2020? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Call me crazy, but I actually think DAYS is back on top again! Loving the show lately!

This is a misleading headline because the ratings are a bit distorted and not accurately represented right now due to preemptions, interruptions and bad counting. Until the impeachment stuff is over, the ratings can’t be seen as a good measurement of the soaps’ success/failure.

hi C.M Smith,
the headline was right on,,
It said; was about the demo
” #2 Spot In Key 18-49 Demo”
not ratings,,
Days has been doing very well, someday it will be #2!! 🙂

It’s clear you are a bit too drunk on eggnog and your love for Ron Carlivati’s writing during the holiday season to be rational and/or objective. Merry Christmas!

Dear C.M Smith,
I’m not in love with Ron Carlivati’.
We never dated and never had a first kiss.
‘sides, he wouldn’t be interested in me..
Nonetheless, I do admire his writing.
ahh- one can get drunk from eggnog?
I’ve never tasted eggnog, the name alone is a YUK turnoff.
Merry Christmas!!
hope Santa was good to you 🙂

You are exactly right C.M. Smith. GH numbers are lower because the showed the last 20 minutes of that Monday and can’t accurately reflect where they should rate for the week.

There is no real difference between a 0.44 demo rating an a 0.40. These ratings are terrible, all around

Overall advertisers look at all figures. Days continues to be last in the food chain of soaps week in week out, the slight increase they got in the demographic age is a joke.

Days seem to be rocking’ with exciting, intriguing interesting stories. Days has bang ! WTO Days pulling in the young ones. to mention/ GH has become gawdawful stale,, it has the potential for intrigue and excitement but failed 110% to bring the drama. GH has a villainess Chloe in the hospital with her baby bursting with betrayal deceitful lies a father that nearly killed his son Peter who killed to cover up horrible deeds Nikolas and Jax scheming against Valentin and not one- not one- story is worth watching GH stories are empty of- intrigue, drama, excitement, mystery, shockers, enticement.… Read more »

Oh Sue,
you are a reron fan, even though the writing is on the walls.
what you call ‘action’ the general consenus calls ‘the cartoon summation’ and reron calls it a ‘time shift’.
even the entire cast, well no, they shouldn’t be wondering if they’re good enough, they should be looking for work. maybe they’ll wake up come April when they still don’t have a contract. You call GH boring, ironically, it doesn’t need a cliffhanger every commercial break, and the stories are extremely consistent of late.
I expect you’ll be in tears come August, been there, done that.

hi viewer88..
Ahh the soaps..
Makebelieve and campy..
Nothing is real, but-
the stories should be exciting even if cartoonish.
cartoons and soaps, both, are great in storytelling..
Same as books- some get donated after the first chapter
and others are read to end.
its the book that grabs you into its pages.
RC, even if disliked he will grab you in 🙂

Merry Christmas !!

Good luck to all of them but I don’t give a s**t anymore and who should ??? They have slaughtered and insulted the viewers so just go to hell

I am really insulted , Kay ; especially by General Hospital . That Soap writes for its favorite characters in a stronger manner. I really want to see how the Nicholas story plays out since as far as I’m concerned , he’s a criminal as Valentin supposedly is.
Sam hates Julian ; however , she , Laura , ( the Mayor) , the police ,etc. are crazy about the biggest mobster in town. This show doesn’t have an inch of fair writing. However , I will say that I have some complaints about Young and the Restless , also .

Anytime I hear about any kind of increase in ratings for soaps, I am ever grateful. I am still mourning the loss of too many wonderful shows in the not-so-distant (and even distant) past. I will continue to support all the present shows, even “Coronation Street” which comes to us over a Canadian TV network. Here’s to continued great stories, etc. in 2020!!

They didn’t “climb” into anything. All the other shows just sunk MORE. And because Days was already in the cellar, they simply didn’t have as far to fall.

If the car in front of me on the highway breaks down and drives off the road, that doesn’t mean I sped up any.

Obviously you care, enough to read this website and comment at least. With the passing of so many soap greats recently I’ve decided to stop the criticism and appreciate the remaining soaps while I still can. No other entertainment genre cares for its female leads the way daytime does. Jeanne Cooper, Frances Reid, Helen Wagner working well into their 80’s. Diedre Hall, Susan Seaforth Hayes, Marla Adams, and Leslie Charleson still working in their 70’s. Live long and prosper daytime.

Ratings Report for the Week of December 16-20, 2019 showed that Days fell back to #4 in all categories and 1.9 Million total viewers will not be good for renewal. Hoping that GH can move higher than 2.2 Million and #3 with a new writer on the team. And Bold and Beautiful is one of the best at #2.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Photo: JPI

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

Courtesy/NBC

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
