RATINGS: Days of our Lives Has Strong Week

Photo: JPI

The ratings are out for the week of September 2nd through the 6th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives that was the only daytime drama series to gain in total viewers and households.

That week featured the debut of One Life to Live icon, Robin Strasser in her debut on DAYS as Vivian Alamain replacing Louise Sorel.

DAYS topped General Hospital for the week moving into third place adding +82,000 total viewers, while GH hit a new low losing – 143,000 viewers, as well, the CBS Daytime series of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful also lost total viewers … -189,000 and -120,000 for the ratings period.

In addition, DAYS was up +.04 in households week-to-week.   However. the show year-to-year that has continued in recent weeks to lose viewers is The Young and the Restless who from this time last year lost -453,000 viewers.

In the key demos: Y&R remained at #1 in 18-49, 18-34 and 25-54 in total viewers, but in the ratings share it tied with B&B in the 18-34 category.  Over the past few weeks, B&B has also been in the top demo slots trading off with Y&R.

With the fall season upon us and summer coming to a close, perhaps many soap viewers will be checking back in to see what is happening in the towns of Genoa City, Port Charles, Los Angeles, and Salem.

But of course, story and content is king, so here’s hoping viewers will be into what the shows are serving up in the months to come.  And if you love the genre, it’s important to remember in the words of Robin Strasser to “Support the Four”.

Check out the entire ratings picture via SON here.

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 3,616,000 (-120,000/-453,000)
2. B&B 3,196,000 (-189,000/-87,000)
3. DAYS 2,123,000 (+82,000/-30,000)
4. GH 2,023,000 (-143,000/-297,000)

Billy Miller’s exit cost GH a lot of viewers. People have had enough of the “Steve Burton Show”. Y&R is beyond pathetic. Their large elderly audience has kept them #1, Josh Griffith’s writing is running them off by the hundreds of thousands.

Agree. Steve Burton isn’t the problem. terrible writing, overwrought direction and the dragging out of this ridiculous Shiloh storyline is. I am one of the lost viewers, and I’m sure there will be more if they don’t find a way to tie in some classic ABC soaps into GH… I’d start by finally writing the OLTL and AMC crossovers now. Bo and Nora are already known to the Current GH watchers.. have Matthew and Destiny be parents to a new kid in one of the GH Kids classes, Nora and Bo relocate to help M&D with their family and get… Read more »

I don’t think it’s Burton’s fault that the stories are badly written and all over the place. I agree with you about Miller though. Both he and the fans were given a raw deal. Drew leaves without even been given an exit story line and Franco is the one who gets his memories. To say this story arc is anti-climatic and unsatisfying is the understatement of the century/

I agree; G.H. gives Jason and Sonny too much of a free rein in police business. Also, we never see Laura at her office; she’s too friendly with the mob element. I’m trying to understand the comment about Y&R’s large elderly audience aiding in its number one status ; I hope that’s not a demeaning statement about the elderly . Since you evidently aren’t there yet , one day that statement will slap you hard in the face.

Congrats DAYS! Awesome news to get 3rd ranking! And WISE words from… Robin Strasser to “Support the Four”. So True! I am behind a few months with DAYS and hope to catch up soon and I definitely look forward to watching Robin’s version of Vivian! I know she was the 1st Rachel Cory on Another World, but I only began watching AW after her departure. I know from OLTL, that Robin Strasser is a powerhouse of a performer and am so pleased that she’s in Daytime and on DAYS. I can’t wait to see her scenes. And, yeah, Robin is… Read more »

Hm, it seems like Josh Griffith’s plan of resetting Y&R to storylines from 2 years ago isn’t paying off yet. Happy for Days; it is the most consistently entertaining soap right now.

Bravo to Days, the show is on fire right now. I miss my madam Louise Sorel as Vivian, she is the original Vivian Alamain, I love Robin Strasser but sorry folks she is not Vivian to me. Thank God Robin only signed for 15 episodes. The storylines are on fire right now, GH is terrible right now, the ratings are falling for GH. Not a good show right now.

Days Of Our Lives deserves the big ratings, they are getting right now. The only thing that I want right now, is to bring back Bo Brady, recast the role if they have to. DR Rolf can revive Bo Brady.

No more recasts as long as ReRon is writing. Every one so far has been horrible.

The one time they tried a Bo Brady recast he was barely tolerable, and if you watch GH you know how ReRon wrote for that guy. Hard pass on that!

The new ( not so new now) Kristen is doing a knock out job! I also love Tyler Christopher but his replacement is great! Now he’s leaving 🙁
My point is ..great job recasts!

The “new” Kristen is a cartoon character. Original Kristen always had some borderline psychopath tendencies, but this is version is as much of a joke as Susan (who was actually written that way). Same with the current miscast “Vivian” and whatever that bugeyed freak was a few months back who bore no resemblance whatsoever to the historical Diana Colville. And for the love of all that’s unholy, don’t get a Devil started on that unwatchable mess that has blasphemized the unholy name of Eve Donovan. Nothinng against Brandon Barash, but all I see when I look at him is Johnny… Read more »

I am anxious to see how or who will kill off Stefan. I hope they get rid of his mother as well. I can not stand that woman! I liked Robin Strasser years ago on OLTL, but now she is a little long in the tooth, to put it bluntly, and all that makeup and dyed hair does more harm than good.

Thanks Violet for correcting me. Assumptions are truly just what the word means. I assumed that you were a younger person writing about an older one . Thanks again for informing me . Plus, God bless you at 86 ; I’m trying to make my three score years and ten. (70)

GH was the only one of the 4 that didn’t air a new episode on Labor Day. The numbers are skewed because of this, let’s not get too upset.

#GH in last place doesn’t surprise me. Boyfriends leading the charge in scenes and storylines result in bad ratings. Horrible actor.

Harry

I wanted to point out that I didn’t watch Y&R for a few weeks because of the wrangling which was occurring between AT&T and CBS. CBS was blacked out for about 3 weeks for me and hence, no Y&R. I believe the ratings are reflective of his.
GH is in last place because Frank Valentine refuses to give viewers what they want and continues to force feed us his favorites. It’s abysmal and depressing, and I fast forward through much of it.

Violet Lemm2

Harry,
OMG, three weeks with no Y&R? Did you have any withdrawal symptoms? I would have. I’ve never heard of a network doing that, but after the past few days, I almost wish CNN would do just that.

GH needs new writers new everything.
It has grown old and stale, a moldy soap..
Get rid of All the writers and producers and bring in new fresh minds,
Out with the old in with the new.
If not GH will die from stagnation.

These overall ratings are TERRIBLE. While there may be a momentary increase for one or more of them (such as Days in this rating period), the trend for every one of them is downward and has been that way for years. How much lower can each of these shows drop before one (or more) of them is taken off the air? Whether you personally loved or hated an individual producer or head writer for any of these shows over the past decade, none of them are delivering where it truly counts —- ratings. I’ve been a soap watcher for decades… Read more »

We shall see if it can maintain its increase but I doubt it. Days always blows it. However, I love the Julie character and her interactions with her grandson Eli and Gabi, she is fierce, and this is coming from an African American. Wish they would bring back her son and Eli’s father David as well as Valerie to give Abe something to do.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
