RATINGS: Days of our Lives Only Soap To Gain In Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo!

The ratings are out for the week of January 8 through the 12th, and it was Days of our Lives that was the lone daytime drama series to garner additional total viewers for the week and more.

The NBC soap opera added + 12,000, and also was the only show to add viewers in the key 18-49 womens demo. DAYS also added the most viewers in the 25-54 female demo.

In story, it was Tyler’s Christopher’s second week on air as Stefan O. DiMera, as well as Lani (Sal Stowers) learning that she was pregnant, and everybody double-crossing each other for control of DiMera Enterprises!

Over at The Young and the Restless, the top-rated CBS soap was strong in total households, and remained in the top spot, and showed some gains in the 25-54 demo.  The Bold and the Beautiful was down slightly in total viewers, and lost viewers in all the key demos.

As for General Hospital, they lost the most total viewers for the week with -75,000. and were down in key demos, but up in women 18-34.  View the entire ratings picture via SON here.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,810,000 (-13,000/+123,000)
2. B&B 3,935,000 (-8,000/+144,000)
3. GH 2,815,000 (-74,000/+162,000)

The Friday JToria rating is pretty LIT on Y&R

I like JToria but I don’t think they were instrumental for Friday’s ratings. Their hot love scene was several seconds before the end of the show.

I think, the weather likely had also a lot to do with soaps’ ratings increase this week (over the last year).

They do prove how much chemistry they have. I just have to wonder WHY they put them back together and if JT isn’t playing Victoria somehow.

Days is coming on strong.. GH had best pick up its’ game.
And-
”Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings”
I believe there is a high percentage that does not watch Live+Same Day, really who does that LOL ..
Most all seem to be watching Anytime Anywhere at their convenience…

Unless you have a Nielsen box, it doesnt matter what /when or how you watch. Its not counted for these ratings.
If you have a box, watch live if possible or before midnight.

I thought they are taking into consideration DVR viewing within 24 hours or something like that.

You are correct Chrystie, DVR viewing does count towards ratings.

Yes, SuzieQ….I agree…..but, GO DAYS, anywhichway!!!!!!
Unless one loves Days and has been watching for many years, as I have ( since my toddler ‘days’ , LOL), one will never appreciate the bond with characters ( mostly the vets) …..and for the show itself….I applaud everything ….the actors, the writers, the staff , all their efforts to making DAYS great again!! Ha?!?! LOL.

@Jimh.
LOL, Jimmy…in every soap, Jimmy, in every soap…..Sam ( GH) walking through ten feet of snow ( exagerating here, LOL), pregnant and wearing stilettos, and no coat….
It’s California….they forget.
Last month it was frigid in the northeast …..we put our winter gear on in the house, before exiting….
Very unrealistic….Sharon ( Y&R) vacuuming in stilettos…..too many discrepancies to count…but, we love our soaps, regardless, right??

Jimh,

That is how my 6 and 8-year-olds dress when it is in the 30s and 40s in California. Flip flops and shorts and run out of the house without a jacket. But they will wear long sleeves when it is 100 just because they are too lazy to find something suitable for the weather. HaHa!

I am getting completely different vibes….what is John Black doing? Did he kill Andre? I think that all these weird ‘maneuvers’ by him are heralding his departure?
Days is doing superbly….either he is leaving or there is a plotline in the works, where John is ‘pushed’ to kill Steve? Who are the bad guys behind this?

Seems he was programmed to be The Pawn again. With all the Stefano talk it makes you wonder.

Yes, John…Genie is gold….now, Nathan!!! I am going to miss those eyes….that face…that body!! LOL. Seriously, Nathan and Maxie were a shining light…..who made Lulu and Dante look like what is sooo bland in a marriage. I think he’ll be back? Does he have another ‘job’ in sight? I hope Griffin is not next. …..or Kevin. Please, not Kevin….he’s waiting for Laura to return safely, from Paris, and straight into his warm, strong, empty arms. Oh, yeah!! Get rid of Wes…..he was a catalyst to Faison’s capture….he’s done…..but, as I mentioned when he first came, and lately, he may be… Read more »

I’m worried they are about to make Kevin insane. Was Kin hinting at that in the preview? Was Kevin holding Cesar’s autopsied brain in the preview? Is Kevin about to turn into a mad scientist and Jon gets sent packing like Genie?

Celia

@Carrie. Hi, Carrie, I was just going to say that….I got the same impression from the previews. You are so right in thinking it….I, also, suspect ( probably wrongly) that Kevin may have been working with Andre? Maybe, Kevin wants to study the brain of a maniac ( Faison’s) and what makes it tick?….. I mean, he does want to conduct a study on Franco….the more the merrier?? LOL. If TPTB are ‘kicking’ Kevin to the curb, it was a last minute decision….just as as Laura….just as Andre. In that case, what of Genie? Gone for good? Laura with no… Read more »

“The Incredibles?” Oh, that’s a good one, CeeCeeGirl! Never say never where Sonny is concerned…no matter how much of him we get, there’s always room for more! As for “whatever normal is” in Port Charles remains anyone’s guess when crypt trysts, endless gangster goings-on, adults acting like hormonally-charged teens and the “living dead” are par for the course! To put it another way, whatever is generally-referred to as socially-acceptable behavior is considered outre’ in the @$$-backward GH universe! But this bizarro Kevin thing may be a bridge too far even for this whacked-out waterfront town. Perhaps Genie Francis should thank… Read more »

@Shay. Hi, Shaybelle, LOL…”The Incredibles” and “The Invincibles”….what more a’ propos name is there to describe the “chosen” ones? They have overtaken GH……nowhere to run. I don’t get the reason why TPTB are turning Carly into a worse shrew than she already is….now she bullies pregnant women? …she wears the pants…I know it’s a passe’ expression, but what kind of hardened mafioso is Sonny? Carly needs to be tied down….sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong, is her life’s mission. Fishwife. The fact that Sonny said his father ‘hangs’ with the wrong people drew an unlady-like snort from me, …HaHa.… Read more »

@Timmm.
Hi, T,
Matt was probably emotional because he knew Ryan was leaving…..they may have become good friends….as Dominick. I thought DZ was so authentic in expressing his emotions.
Sure, they were acting, but some of their ‘real’ personal feelings do come into play, I would think.
I do get what you’re saying….doctors should be impassive when it comes to patients. Their job is to be rational, stoic and professional
LOL, T, ….I have seen doctors get teary-eyed and emotional, in real life….trust me….they are human ….. The way you said it, cracked me up….

It likely took a chunk out of the budget to bring Steve Burton back, so I would expect more exits over the next weeks.

Ryan chose to leave; has his own jewelry line and wants to do more films, preferably action.

I’m hoping Kevin doesn’t leave. Ugh..what if we find out he’s really his supposedly deranged dead brother!!!!??? Please no….

GH’s ratings will keep going down and down some more unless/until Genie is brought back. The show has become such an unwatchable hot mess under the smug, arrogant Frank Valentini. It’s abundantly clear that he, his staff, and TPTB at ABC have zero regard for fans who’ve supported this show for years. All they care about is having Frank’s personal pets front and center on the show day after day, week after week. I’m done. This is no longer General Hospital and hasn’t been for quite some time. It’s surprising they haven’t changed the title. Several of my friends who… Read more »

You are so right, Pat,….I posted on the Ryan Peavey site out of habit…..LOL….I guess I was caught up in his possible death?, and Ms Gati’s impassioned scene, over her son.
As I said, Genie is gold and her ‘non-presence’ is strongly, and deeply felt…..GH needs to straighten itself out in the name of survival.

With head writing duties being assumed by Ron Carlivati, it isn’t at all surprising that Days is seeing an uptick. This guy knows how to write a soap! GH started to flounder immediately following his departure, and it has become virtually unwatchable. The new writing team really dropped the ball with the return of Steve Burton to the point where they are rewriting history and disrespecting viewer’s intelligence. When good actors struggle with poor writing it is obvious, and that’s what is now happening episode after episode. Can’t help but wonder if this is the network’s plan so they have… Read more »

I absolutely love Tyler Christopher in his new role as Stefan O. (Rather ironic since Stephen Nichols played his uncle on GH as “Stefan” Cassadine. I always missed Nichols on GH; loved his portrayai as Stefan Cassadine and I loved the scenes at the mansion in the early days…when Stefan and Nicolas moved there…and Alexis was found out to be Stefan’s half sister/Nic’s aunt. The parties they had there..the Masquerade Ball, etc. That was such an incredible time on GH…really packed with adventure, intrigue and magic… But I digress! I love seeing both actors on Days as well as Mary… Read more »

Oh man, you said it all!

I also am one who really appreciates an actor who can convey so much with just their eyes. It is a rare talent and not many exhibit. Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers), Ben Stiller (There’s Something About Mary), and Matthew Rhys (The Americans) — this guy could put his body on vacation and just leave his eyes in the scene, he is that good! They all seem to exhibit this organic affect that really resonates with me and does not seem forced.

Patrick. I hear u loud and clear. I totally agree with you about Carrie, JJ, Abby and Stefan, and Tripp. Those are my must see characters and stories. I disagree with Eric and Jenn though. I d love to see Eric together witj Jenn til Nicole comes back to rekindle their romance. Ericole are a days supercouple.

Oh, Patrick!!!!….my poet….Noooo, not Claire—terrible acting….and, albeit I like nuCiera better than the sorased original, she overacts…..no one can do a 180 the way this characted did..—-not believable. Tripp ( sp) is unbelievably good ( the actor; that is). He is ‘collected’ and mature for his age….he ‘has it bad’ for Claire ( ugh), but tries hard to control himself. You know what I think? Tripp and Ciera will fall for each other….I will welcome that—Claire is like Devon ( Y&R) to me……they both look twelve.

One thing I have noticed about Y&R and Days is that CBS and NBC promo them with ads throughout the day. You wouldn’t think it was their preferred demo, but saw Y&R teaser just this morning on CBS morning news. Can’t hurt. Whereas ABC does nothing with GH.

The writers on GH have done a decent job. Over at Y&R which has such good ratings, the stories SUCK! Dina was the best part of the show and she is off the air. Thank God Scott is gone! Nick, Noah, Billy, and Mariah are floating around with nothing to do. ANYONE attached to Devon is FF city! He gets all this screen time and he is the worst! Michelle Stafford could be finishing up at GH, bring her back, for starters. AND, Muhney can save the show. It just has to be written and produced as an american soap… Read more »

Agreed, T……especially the MS and MM part!!

I think that having homosexuality is wrong on your show. I caught my 2 young sons watching it after school. I was horrified. I never watched it again myself. My 2 sons saw them in bed. I had to get this channel blocked. .

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
