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.

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 Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
