RATINGS: Days of our Lives Has Solid Week; Only Soap To Gain Viewers From Last Year At This Time!

Salem has all sorts of drama going down, and mainly from the three faces of Abigail!

As this juicy DID tale continues to turn on Days of our Lives it has put Marci Miller (Abigail), Billy Flynn (Chad), Tyler Christopher (Stefan) and a host of others from and center. Then of course, has been the heartache of Steve (Stephen Nichols) losing his eyesight and several other plots that have made DAYS solid soap viewing.

In the latest ratings for the week of April 2-6, DAYS gained 51,000 total viewers and was up +156,000 from last year at this same time.  DAYS also gained in all the key womens demos: 18-34, 18-49, 25-54.

Also in the plus column for the week was The Young and the Restless netting another +8,000 in total viewers, while adding viewers in the 18-49 and 25-54 demos.

General Hospital gained +7,000 for the ratings period in total viewers, and gained in the 18-49 and 25-54 demo, as well.   The Bold and the Beautiful was the only soap to lose total viewers for the week with -23,000.  However, the CBS Daytime soap bounced back gaining viewers in the 18-49 and 25-54 demo.

Check out the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,419,000 (+8,000/-147,000)
2. B&B 3,552,000 (-23,000/-4,000)
3. GH 2,516,000 (+7,000/-58,000)
4. DAYS 2,253,000 (+51,000/+156,000)

Can’t understand why Days hasen’t jumped ahead of GH ..
I gotta mention;
The Sam, Jason and Spin doing their 3 Stooges act as detectives were quite stupid and Lame!..
It was not drama nor humorous, just lame dumbstuff.

I hope Sam never ever enters Drew’s space again. He deserves so much better than her.
I want drew to be a Batcholar.. playing the field and not belonging to anyone but himself.

GH has become 3 things
Boring
Stupid
Lame

( with the exception of Max/Mike, the Alzheimers story. That story is very good.
The other stories suck junk …

This news is well-deserved! I’m a new viewer who began watching Xmas Eve last year (Lani/Eli fling, JJ’s suicide). I’ve been hooked from that moment on. And what a treat it has been! Tyler Christopher’s hire as Stephan to shakeup the Dimera’s, Three Faces of Abigail, Eli/Lani/JJ, Eve and Brady’s courtship and the Jennifer/Eric pairing are my favorite stories. I can never predict what’s about to happen because the twists keep coming and coming, keeping me off-balance, which I love. Head writer Rob Carlivati has proven time and time again that he is a major talent in the soap world.… Read more »

Days is the best…GH does have two good stories with Mike and Nelle but of course both are tied to the Sonny and Carly show!!!

I can’t believe Days is the lowest rated; I haven’t been bored yet! Great characters, stories, acting. Really hope it hangs in there!

On that note, I think soaps should spend some money on advertising. I know: budget. But I just wonder if they branch out to more than the soap audience with some clever ads if they can suck in “non-believers” to the wonderful world of mayhem, murder and malcontents, sprinkled with love, lust and longing with a dollop of crazy. Who could ask for anything more? !

Well, DAYS aside, I’m sad that the terrific story of Victoria and J.T. hasn’t grabbed more attention and/or viewers. The tale is disturbingly real and, sadly, constantly needs retelling. The actors, especially Amelia Heinle, have been brilliant and I’ve found myself tearing up more than once. Regarding GH, lower ratings don’t surprise me. Why would people want to see more of Sam as a Mata Hari wannabe cavorting around Switzerland, ignoring her own safety, playing high stakes espionage with the eternal dullard. This story has me in stitches every day…not the writer’s intention, I fear. Sure, Sam, who’d want a… Read more »

Best show on daytime. Article mentions Abigail Chad Stefan and Steve, but also Kayla, Marlena, Will, Kate, and Vivian and of course Gabi. Gabi hold her own and deserves much better than Eli. I am hopeful she will find her match soon.

You look at where GH is as compared to where it was when Burton returned and there’s a story. Jason comes back and you have weeks in October, November and December at 2.7, 2.8 even 2.9 million total viewers and the demo getting to the mid 400k’s hitting 470,000 even close to 490,000 and viewership is up over the previous year. Now Jason is basically chasing his tale, Drew is thrown from a story with him into Franco’s pain and of course we basically have the Franco saga front and center, Anna has been completely destroyed, a total rewrite of… Read more »

I’m hating and liking Days at the same time ; loving it because Abby and Chad are terrific with their acting . I’m totally disappointed that Chad wasn’t nominated for an award. Hating Days because I want Chad and Abby to be happy. Also, I’m anxious to know why Abby killed Andre since she was fond of him.
The other Soaps aren’t too interesting at the present ; so, Days is it.

DAYS is on fire right now! Ron is serving up the DID goodness and I am eating it up with a spoon. More please! Y&R continues to be a mess. Devon and Hilary making a baby (YAWN!), Victor and Nikki’s open marriage (YUCK!), Jack not being John Abbott’s son (HUGE mistake), Lily running a Wisconsin based modeling agency (um, for realz?), Billy and Phyllis’ forced “comedic” relationship (news flash: no chemistry) — none of it works. But I will admit that I am intrigued by the subplot that had Victoria picking up a hairbrush from the bathroom floor the night… Read more »

You, sir, are HILARIOUS! I stopped watching Y&R during the JT/Victoria debacle. Also, remember that both Lily and Sharon are successful WI former models! Don’t sleep! They’re still trying to force Philly. No, they have no chemistry. They are more like brother/sister. It’s infinitely better than Phyllis going for Nick again. Anyway…who knew Vicki had a hairbrush? Where were the scissors, because they are desperately needed! I cannot get into GH at all. It just doesn’t pop. I have watched a few episodes here and there, but the cast is just too large, and I just don’t get it. Are… Read more »

Thanks Ron C- for saving my all time favorite show! Hands down, he is the best writer in the industry.He saved GH from near death, and is now doing the same for Salem. I really love the Abigail storyline.it brings out the best in Marci Miller.

Honestly, I am enjoying DAYS more than any other soap at this juncture. However, it remains in 4th place. Also, during last week ratings release they lost more viewers then they gain the recent ratings release period. So, are they really gaining?

GH is TWO million rating points behind Y&R. WOW, how do you ever catch them? You dont. Y&R is committed to the soap business, GH is not! #2. The show runner on Y&R is on his way to bigger and better things. GH has a guy that is running GH into the ground! Frank craps on the shows history and its legendary characters. Frank brings in his own peeps that WE care nothing about! Silas Finn Nathan Chase Jordan Amy Nina Valentin Peter Andre Oscar Franco [Sorry Roger] MORGAN! Can ANYONE argue that ANY of these characters are relevant? Notice… Read more »

Yep! When will they ever learn that GH fans want GH. I like new character, as long as they’re tied to current characters or the history of the show.

Jacob Young was not good as Lucky at all. Now that Nashville is done, there’s no reason to settle for any Lucky other than the original, if they can get Jonathan Jackson back. Definitely agree that Julie Berman was the better Lulu though. I’ve seen her show up on prime time now and then (one of the many medical shows, forget which one it was) but she never became a fulltime cast member. And isn’t the original Lois on one of the CBS soaps? They tried a recast of that character once, and it didn’t work at all. Just to… Read more »

DAYS is bringing the most drama these days and should hold steady, however, GH will continue to add viewers with The Nurses Ball on the horizon. The same can be said for Y& R. B&B will probably hold steady as well.

I don’t know why B&B is so high….because they just recycle the same story over and over….it’s about to be a whole year of the Liam, Steffy, Hope show….so sick of this triangle! Can they not write anything else??!! Steffy, there has got to be another man in Los Angeles that you can find interesting. Liam is a loser and I get sick of him going back and forth between the two of them. I know Steffy was horrible for sleeping with Bill, and I saw that coming a mile away….but I can’t help but think about the way Liam… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
