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.

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.

Your opinion only. Steve Burton is a fine actor and make a great Jason character.

Chris

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 established as Lawyer/Private Security for Aurora/Metrocourt.

I’m sure a similarly plausible scenario can be crafted for AMC characters.. GH needs to do something soon or ABC will pull that plug faster than you can say The Chew.

Harry

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/

Boop

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 so right in saying support the four remaining soaps, they can be taken away from in a flash. And, we don’t want that.
Best to all 4 Daytime dramas.

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.

Boop

Strasser is holding her own ; which I knew that she would. I want her to stay!

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.

Satan

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!

Chris

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!

Satan
Satan

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 Zaccharra. Of course all I saw with TC was Nikolas Cassadine, so that’s pretty much a trade-off.

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.

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.

If Sonny , Jason , Carly , and Sam aren’t anchors around the residents’ necks; nobody else is! Days is my number one Soap.

Barbara from Atlanta

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 but, with the rating performance each of these shows indicated on a regular basis on sites like this, no one seriously could think that all of these shows will remain on the air — without some radical and immediately successful change.

I continue to watch Y&R. But, in all candor, it really is out of habit/loyality/support for it and NOT because the show is giving me a compelling plot. It isn’t and hasn’t for nearly a decade.

It really is a sad situation.

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.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

Photo: JPI

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”

DAYS Head Writer Ron Carlivati Talks On: Ben Weston, Soap Amnesia, Doppelgängers, and the Time Jump

Days of our Lives viewers have been going through some changes over the past month since the launch of the innovative time jump from the creative mind of the series and Daytime Emmy-winning head writer, Ron Carlivati.  As episode after episode unfolds, the audience has been finding out just where their favorite Salem residents have landed and with whom, in the one year flash-forward.  There have been shocking deaths revealed, longtime couples facing different kinds of obstacles that could change their relationships forever, and some characters brought back on the canvas, in one form or the other, to shake things up.

On the series finale of the Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast,  Ron Carlivati was the very special guest and addressed many of the decisions that went into making the flash- forward happen starting with when Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) wakes up from her coma after her fall, thanks to Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso), and how it impacts the canvas.  You can listen to the can’t-miss interview here via iTunes or at NBC.com/Inside Salem.

Due to the length of our conversation with the talented head scribe, some of the questions and answers did not make it into the podcast finale due to time constraints.  So, we have brought you the rest the interview here as Ron discusses: the popularity of  #Cin, back-from-the-dead storylines, writing for the original series on the DOOL app and further creative decisions that went into crafting the one-year time jump.  Check out what Ron had to say below.

Photo: JPI

You have been able to make #Cin, the hottest duo on daytime by taking a now reformed serial killer, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) and pairing him with the daughter of one of DAYS all-time supercouples, Bo and Hope in Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal).  Were you ever  concerned as to how this story/romance would play to the audience at home, because in reality no parent would ever just stand by and let their child get involved with a man who strangled and killed women, previously? 

Ron:  To sort of try to glorify a guy who strangled women and make him into a romantic lead, we don’t do that lightly.  Not unlike, Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) on One Life to Live who was a rapist, and who became sort of an anti-hero, but also a romantic lea.  And in this day and age, it’s even a bigger decision to do something like that, I think.  So, that said, it is a soap opera and there are certain things where we know we are pushing the envelope.  We know in the real world that no mother would ever get past her daughter being with a guy who murdered, killed, and strangled three women or strangled and shot one, but the pairing worked so well.

Photo: JPI

In the time jump, you gave Ben an intriguing prison cell mate in Will Horton, given that Ben had “killed” him previously.  Add to that you brought back Ben’s criminal father, Clyde back into the mix.  There’s lots of prison orange these days on the screen.

Ron:  When we knew we were sending Ben to prison, then obviously father and son have to cross path. It just added another element, so it wasn’t just going to be Ben and Will (Chandler Massey) talking to each other, and making a shawl together like Martha Stewart. (Laughs). Ben’s relationship with Clyde was interesting to me.  As horrible as Clyde was and is – there does seem to be some sort of love that he has for Ben.

Photo: JPI

On the soaps, and as has been part of DAYS enduring legacy, characters are killed off, only to be brought back to life somewhere down the road. Many return with classic soap amnesia as a vehicle to drive story.  Is there ever a time when as a writer, or as a soap fan, you think “enough is enough”, and characters should just stay dead?  Many fans who watch daytime dramas get very invested in tragic death stories, where characters have these shocking or sudden, or long goodbyes, and the viewers goes through the grieving process; along with the other characters, for what then seems like a waste of an emotional investment when said character turns back up alive.

Ron:  We were talking about bringing Jack (Matthew Ashford) back right around that same time we had the Will story.  We couldn’t bring two people back from the dead at the same time, and that’s why Jack’s return kind of got put on the back-burner, so we could do the ‘Will is alive’ story arc.  Look, the audience will go with you, especially if they want somebody back desperately.  They will overlook how did it happen, and how could they be alive.  They will accept almost any explanation, but I think you’re right, if you do it too much, you tend to water down the permanence of death … especially deaths that you saw on-camera.

Photo: JPI

Viewers know you love doppelgänger storylines.  And, in the time jump you brought back none other than Hattie Adams (Deidre Hall).  Why the decision to bring Hattie back at this time?  I know Deidre loves playing her.

Ron:  I think Deidre likes playing something different than Marlena, because she played Marlena for many, many years, and she knows her like the back of her hand.  Hattie is an escape and something fun, and the chance to do and say outrageous things that Marlena would never do.  So, we bring her back whenever we can to have fun with, and again, it seemed to work because  she was in prison, and we set Eve in prison when we started the time jump off, and we’re like, “Who’s Eve (Kassie DePaiva) going to be talking to?” and we’re like, “Oh, well of course.  It has to be Hattie.” (Laughs)

When do you first see the fruits of your labor?  Do you see a feed from the set as the show is taping? Do you receive episodes where you see how what was written has come to life? 

Ron:  In prior shows, One Life to Live and on GH, I saw it when it aired. At One Life, I was in the studio, so I often saw production shooting scenes.  Here, they send me the completed shows once it has been completely edited, the music has been put into it, and it’s all ready to roll, and they email me the link to 5 or 6 shows.  So, I could in theory watch a couple of weeks ahead of the audience, but I tend to (unless I’m so, so curious about how a certain thing turned out) watch it when it’s on TV.

Photo: JPI

The “Lani (Sal Stowers) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) joining a convent” storyline is at a critical point in story.  How did you come up with the decision to put Lani, and of all people, Kristen together and about to take their vows as nuns, and kind of becoming bff’s?

Ron:  I mean, you can’t imagine sort of two more unlikely friends as Kristen and Lani.  We grew to really love the relationship that developed between the two of them.  I think we sat down and said about the time jump, “There have to be enough big changes that you do the double-take.”  Like, Will is Ben’s cell mate, Adrienne is dead, and Justin and Kayla are together now.  You had to have enough of those WTF moments to justify passing a year of time.

You have also been writing series for the DOOL app.  What did you think of Chad and Abby in Paris with that being the initial one and how it all came to pass?

Ron:   It was fun.  I had no time.  I was writing six episodes a week of DAYS, and I was asked “By the way, can you write two seasons of a web/app show for us?” (Laughs) Greg Meng (Co-executive producer, Days of our Lives) has really been the mastermind behind this app and developing this app into something.  I love all of the stuff you guys came up with for all the behind the scenes content, but I know that Greg really wanted original series content on it, too.  Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Kate Mansi) just seemed like the logical couple to do that with.  You wanted somebody tied to Salem that wasn’t currently on the campus, but you know the audience cares about what their up to, and Chad and Abby just seemed perfect.  The process was totally different because I’m used to writing six outlines a week that are 15 pages long, and all of the sudden, I’m like, “She comes in, this happens, and this happens.” .  That’s like a whole episode of an app series right there.  Corday Productions produced it while they were producing the regular show, and they made a special set into Chad and Abigail’s apartment, which I thought looked incredible.

Photo: JPI

Chad & Abby in Paris had a bit of a different look and feel then the regular airshows, which I think made it enticing.

READ MORE
DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R's Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

Ron:  I loved the look of it.  I felt it was just a little bit different than Salem.  We had the establishing shots of the Eiffel Tower and all of that stuff, and look, we had to keep it simple, but we added in Austin (Austin Peck).  We had Tony (Thaao Penghlis) come in season 2.  We had the new characters of Juliette (Rachele Schank) and Sylvie (Shawna Della-Ricca).  So, it was fun, and it weirdly just timed out so perfectly because we did 8, took like a week off, did another 8, and that last episode was posted right when Jennifer fell.

Right, so it timed perfect to get Chad & Abby back on the airshows.

Ron:  It timed out perfectly so that we could have Abigail get a call: “Something has happened to my mother.  We have to go back to Salem.”  So, you last saw Chad and Abby in Paris, and then the following week they were back in Salem.

Photo: JPI

Now, with the kind of massive move for DAYS with the time jump, you have to figure out: “Who are the casualties?  Who am I going to lose?” Viewers learned in short order that: Adrienne (Judi Evans) isn’t alive, Haley (Thia Megia) isn’t alive, and Jordan (Chrishell Stause) isn’t alive.  What went into the decision-making process to kill those characters?  I’m assuming it was to further the story of others on the canvas.

Ron:  Yes.  Anytime we kill somebody, it breaks my heart every time, because these are like my babies.  You fall in love with these characters, and you care about them a lot, and you care about the people who play them.  So, it’s a big decision to say, “Let’s kill them.”  It may be a great story, like, “I’m going to get this amazing story if I kill X,” but that’s a person and a job, and it’s not something we ever do lightly.  That said, in a year of passage of time, you know that life and death is going to happen, and to us, it felt like to really signify the passage of time, there had to be at least one or two people who are no longer alive, and then show how that affects our story.

Photo: JPI

Did you ever think that instead of 1 year that you’d do a bigger jump?  Like, “What if I did 5 years?”  Because it’s interesting, I was reading some comments on social media from fans who are like, “What year is it?  Is it just 1 year?  Why didn’t they do 5?” (Laughs)

Ron:  5 seemed like a lot.  I think people change physically a lot in 5 years. I wasn’t prepared to cast little children as teenagers… that would be a lot. (Laughs)  I think you run the risk of it being almost too disorienting for the audience.  Also, then it would be me having to figure out what happened over 5 years instead of just 1. (Laughs)  So, 1 year just kind of seemed perfect, and it had to be an even year so that even though it’s a crazy coincidence that Jennifer woke up 1 year to the day she fell into the coma, you needed Thanksgiving to still be Thanksgiving, and Christmas to still fall on Christmas, and that kind of thing.  So, it had to be an even year.  I think it worked out great and I hope the audience continues to go on the journey with us, because there is a lot more to come!

So, have you been enjoying the DAYS time jump thus far? Which storyline has piqued your interest most? Let us know via the comment section below.

Angelica Rosas McDaniel (Ex-CBS Daytime Exec) “Last night we lost a light in this world with the passing of Lisa De Cazotte. Lisa was smart, strong, kind, vibrant, an incredible friend and an Emmy winning producer on many beloved shows. I was blessed to know her. Sending love to her family and friends.”

Michael Logan (Former TV Guide Columnist): “RIP Lisa de Cazotte, one of the truly great soap producers. A real nose-to-the-grindstone talent, she never wanted personal glory choosing instead to do the work, quietly and fabulously. Her partnership with James E. Reilly on #Passions was epic.”
