RATINGS: Days of our Lives Red Hot!

Courtesy/NBC

The ratings are out for the week of February 5th through the 9th, and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives who gained an impressive +117,000 total viewers, and even more impressive is that the show under head writer Ron Carlivati is up +320,000 in viewers from last year at this time.

DAYS in the total viewer category is now only +156,000 viewers away from third place General Hospital (2,529,000  to 2,529,000, respectively). During the ratings week, the fallout from Andre’s murder played heavily in Salem.  In addition, DAYS is in 3rd place in the womens 18-49 demo ahead of The Bold and the Beautiful.  The 52-year-0ld daytime drama was the only network soap to show increases in all key demos for the week including: women 18-34 and 25-56.

The Young and the Restless gained +74,000 total viewers for the week, but they have tied an all-time low for the second week in a row for the ratings share in the womens 18-49 and 18-34 demo. The Bold and the Beautiful gained +26,000 total viewers, but both CBS Daytime dramas are down in viewers from last year at this time.  B&B also hit an all-time low in the 18-34 total viewer demo.

As for General Hospital, the ABC soap was the only soap to lose total viewers for the week with -63,000. GH also lost viewers in all the key demos for the ratings period.  Check out 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 4,448,000 (+74,000/-96,000)
2. B&B 3,617,000 (+26,000/-55,000)

Good for DOOL! I was thinking about some people feeling that the multiple personality story was just Ron doing the Vicki/Nicki…Jess/Tess OLTL and Connie/Kate GH stories…but Abigail didn’t just split into a different person; she took on the identity of her friend. Very different than having multiple personalities of yourself…each “fighting” to gain control and leading different lives. Abby as Gabby is an interesting twist to his other incarnations. As for GH? I think it’s been great. Not sure when these numbers are calculated but if they’re after Genie Francis was “demoted” that probably accounts for the huge drop in… Read more »

Isn’t she, though, blake?….. never thought this is where TPTB would go with Abbi….but, it’s working.
I said from the onset that the culprit would be Abbi or Gabi……the least people we would suspect.
However, I feel something is not right about this…..Abbi is being ‘maneuvered’ by something or someone.
Would Stefano kill his own son to reach some twisted goal? Yes!!

WHOA !!!!! DAYS is now only +156,000 viewers away from third place General Hospital (2,529,000 to 2,529,000,,,, RC will bring it home!!! GH made a huge mistake letting Ron go and by doing so that created a biggly uuuuggge competition. Ron Carlivati is up +320,000 in viewers from last year at this time. ( GH has lost more than gained ) If RC keeps rollin on Days will be atop GH sooner than latter (( Day’s has Bad guys, real Bad Guys for excitement and thrills)) (( seems; many don’t want to watch GH a dull boring soap of Saints… Read more »

General Hospital needed to let Ron go. Sorry, but he was truly bad there. Yes, he might’ve had some bright spots, but, for the most part, his story-telling was stale and very boring to watch. And you saying GH lost its being in 2013 means you couldn’t have liked Carlivati’s regime, since he was there in 2013.

Honestly, I feel like the current regime of Shelly Altman and Chris Van Etten are doing a great job with the soap.

Iakovos
Guest
Iakovos

Agree, Scott. I think GH is more stable now and less ‘out there’ in its stories. Still, I find it lacking in many ways. GH always has been the more adventurous soap but after decades of Gothic sci-fi and mob violence, I long for something more authentic, especially with the hospital setting at the core.

Iakovos…Mike’s alzheimer story is as authentic as it gets and extremely well done. Breaks my heart and I would have rather they brought Mike back for a different type of story so that we’d have this wonderful character on for the duration…but his diagnosis will end him unless they find out he’s been misdiagnosed or his medication halts the progression for years to come.

Hating the “diagnosis”; loving the heart and soul behind it. Both Max Gail and Maurice are about as real as it gets…incredibly poignant. Can’t watch their scenes without getting misty.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Iakovos, the issue is that GH can either be hot or cold; there is no “just right” with them, unfortunately. Chris Van Etten has added some stability, but it lacks in something ultra interesting to grasp onto.

DOOL has me enthralled…yet, I am still on the fence about Abbi as Gabi….makes no sense.
Is her mental disease so far gone for her to adopt Gabi’s persona? So very different from before….then again, Abby Devereaux is Laura’s granddaughter.
I await where this story leads with anticipation….

But, I do watch during the day, as well….my son gets home from school just as GH comes on….he’s eight and still in love with Maxie, LOL…..albeit, he’s a bit confused about her little baby bump.
Ahh, to be that innocent, again….

DAYS has my respect for coming back fighting. Ron Carlivati is hot as hell when it comes to scripting the show. I would be happy to see DAYS and Y&R battle it out for ratings. While the cast on Y&R is perfection, the majority of their stories are lacking right now. Focus on people I don’t care about. But DAYS needs to keep the momentum going because they can do it under the pen of Ron. Kudos DAYS you won my respect back.

DAYS is definitely benefiting from Ron’s love of the genre and his varied storytelling that is giving all the cast — including vets — airtime. The Abby/Gabby plot has a lot of potential and each episode advances story and leaves me wanting more. This is definitely the show to beat right now and I’m glad to see the ratings reflecting that. B&B never holds my interest for long because of its repetitive brand of storytelling, plus any story that involves Liam, Wyatt, or Steffy as romantic leads has me changing the channel — I just don’t get the appeal of… Read more »

@Alan…Terming GH a “Sonny-centric mess” is a true understatement! Ditto for the strangely somnambulant Drew-Sam-Jason triangle to which you have alluded….it started out promisingly enough, but has become a real snoozer. However, in addition to that sad truth, how could anyone be surprised that this soap experienced a significant drop in ratings after unceremoniously dumping one of its most iconic, beloved and respected characters of all time, in favor of giving her role in the highly-anticipated mayoral storyline to an over-the-hill hussy obsessed with her own sexual gratification? Why the showrunners could even consider such an unsuitable substitute for the… Read more »

So B&B’s 88th wedding for Bridge wasn’t Must See TV? And the return of the Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle Part 7 isn’t riveting for fans? I wish that B&B would take some risks, real risks, with story and try to improve the show. I’m a fan of Ingo Rademacher, but he’s floundering right now, unable to get traction, without a potential love interest, and with no real purpose. B&B is in bad, bad shape. Good for Days, and I’m hopeful GH will improve. Maybe after Y&R stops focusing on Chelsea and her exit, it can go back to compelling storytelling.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I do wish CBS had more creative control with The Bold and the Beautiful, because Brad Bell needs to be taken out of his positions. His dual role as executive producer and head writer is not working anymore, and a major shakeup is needed to give us something new and amazing! As for Ingo, I love him, but Thorne is not the right character for him. The storyline they’re telling could have been told with Winsor Harmon, and I don’t get why it wasn’t. It was a stupid recast decision by Bell, again, proving he cannot handle what his job… Read more »

Iakovos
Guest
Iakovos

More agreement, Scott. B&B is just in a holding pattern, a do-si-do of bedhopping and improbable romances. Lowest common denominator. No corporate drama. No lasting unions. No romance. What about relevant stories about #metoo or really spotlighting an issue for more than two special episodes. B&B is but empty calories, and not tasty ones at that.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Unfortunately, Brad Bell only does those kind of storylines — a-la the corporate takeover of Forrester, Maya’s transgender storyline, etc. — for Emmy submission. Then, once he’s done that, he goes back to his rinse-recycle pattern of story-telling. He is proof that keeping the same regime for a longer period of time does not always work. Yes, people may like him behind-the-scenes, but he is not the right person to be running the show anymore. I’m hoping that sometime this year we might get a shakeup.

DAYS is tops at storytelling right now. RC has it hitting on so many fronts. GH continues to be hit & miss. B&B is one broken record. It is a recycling of stories & triangles. Y&R is simply awful. The Chelsea exit is insultingly poorly written, with the Jack/Ashley conflict ridiculous. The rest is a long boring slog. CBS needs to dump Mal Young. He’s terrible.

Hi Gibbt, YES, CBS get rid of Mal Young…I will watch for the 45th anniversary to see how he handles faves coming back but Y&R needs HELP BIG TIME, CBS/Sony, wake up and see that Mal Young is not the answer to this once wonderful show and please rehire Jack Allocco and David Kurtz to handle the background music.

I just do NOT like Ron Carlivati nor his constant need to repeat DID stories . Same as what he did on every program he worked on. enough already of rehash Ron.

Harry
Guest

Interesting, Jaime, Mo and Celia. I sometimes wonder if certain actors are just playing the part in such a way as to reflect a certain brooding, non-emoting personality, or if they just aren’t very good actors. For instance, January Jones was so good at playing the seemingly hollow ice princess Betty Draper in Mad Men. I have not seen January in many other movies or shows so I was never able to deduce whether she was just strongly adept at playing a character who represses her emotions and therefore, comes off cold or if that is just all the actress… Read more »

I love Tyler, Harry, and I think he’s doing a great job over at Days. I don’t think it’s his acting that’s the problem; they cast him in a very similar role. Like Nicolas, Stefan O (his character) is well-bred, rich, a business shark and cool on the surface. There really wasn’t much room for him to stretch in such a similar role. IF he had been cast as a James Franco “Franco” role and he was still Nicolas-esque; I’d say he had no range. But the role is too similar to lable him one-note. What he does do in… Read more »

Hey Jimh… I have such a different take on Genie and GH. Yes to Genie. She’s a vet and exudes warmth, hearth, home. For me, that’s almost the problem. Not that I’d want that to change…she’s warm n’ fuzzy. But that’s all she’s been for so long that I don’t tune in for her. She’s nice to see…but they’ve made her grandma way before her time…from her grandmothering role to her clothes. I found most of her scenes pleasant but not must-see TV.

I might be in a minority here, but although Days is vastly better than it was I don’t find it as good as some are saying. I am from the school that daytime drama bread and butter was and should be romance and I am finding not just Days, but all the soaps on air right now solely lacking in that department. There isn’t one couple anywhere that I am invested in–even the super couples of old have lost their magic– perhaps I am getting too old that I am missing what passes for romance nowadays, but I find without… Read more »

Hello Mary. I some what agree with you. They no longer keep couples together long enough for you to root for them and want to fight for them. I know that drama keeps the soap turning but if you don’t care about the characters then it doesn’t matter if they are together or not. It is not just romance they are missing, it is just everyday happiness they don’t get.

GH has been average,i think the show would improve if there was less focus on Sonny. Y&R continues to be a dissapointment,Mal Young has been head writer for 4 months now and i haven’t liked what i have seen Chelsea’s exit story makes no sense and so many of the characters have no direction,why don’t Michael and Lauren have any story?

I’m loving the twist that not only does it seem like “Abigail” / “Abby” is the one that “did away with” Andre, but also the intertwining of yet this other twist that seems as if “Abby” / “Abigail” has some issues with either “Disassociative Personality Disorder” and / or “Multiple Personality Disorder”.

An eye-opener, indeed, Ashland. Nice way of putting it, on your part. I don’t know if I buy it, though….do you, Ashland? Abby never suffered from MPD…..are we to believe it is DPD? Whatever it is, I don’t remember any given time spent on her ailment…..she sorta-kinda flipped and disappeared. So, yeah….this is, definitely, a twist. For Abby to transform/morf into Gabi, tells me she is very jealous of her—-perhaps resents Gabi sleeping with her husband—perhaps she envies her popularity as a model, her label. Abby’s resentment could possibly be manifesting itself in this criminally destructive manner….many possibilities there. ….seems… Read more »

Days of Our Lives has gone from my #4 soap to my #2 soap, and that’s due to the creative team of Ron Carlivati, Sheri Anderson and Ryan Quan. Yes, I was skeptical of Carlivati becoming head writer of the soap following his miserable reign at General Hospital and the fact I hated One Life to Live under his regime (in comparing to clips I watched on YouTube, though, I still don’t like that soap), but some time away from daytime has clearly brought some creativity back to him.

Marla Adams is still apart of the cast, and with the return of Melissa Ordway’s Abby, I do believe she’ll be popping back up to play.

I don’t watch the show, Jamesj75, but it would be a real slap in the face to the “me too” movement to hire Muhney back.

There are plenty of other actors in the sea; if major film stars can be replaced so too can daytime actors.

Days,should be #2. I don’t watch Y&R right now,but I just don’t see them ever losing 1 spot. Viewers habits. Days has good stories and good characters. Much for young and older.

Great job Days I just wonder how long it will take for Chad to realize that Abby has a split personality.I think sooner or later Gabby will come out in front of everyone.I must say that Marci is doping a great job playing someone with a mental illness. I think she looks better in the dark hair then the blond even my friend said so.I am not to sure though if Vivian will keep her mouth shut about seeing Gabby-Abby.Days just keep up the good work and I jsut bet your ratings will continue to grow.

Getting, growing, and keeping audience is not easy in the soap world. But one thing I do like that CBS does is promote their soaps with teaser ads. Just saw one on CBS (serious) news this morning for Y&R. It get’s me ready for the afternoon show and what’s up with Chelsea and Nick, etc. Wish ABC would do the same for GH.

if GH is minus 63000 viewers and Days is 117,000 plus, i have to wonder if the addition of tyler christopher to Days made a difference, certainly some of his fans must have followed him, and he is doing an excellent job in the part he is playing…plus Days has more inclusive story lines, interracial, gay, drawing more minority groups to the soap, keep up the good work Days, we dont want to lose you, i still cry over the loss of Another World

I personally am CANCELLING DAYS OF NOT OUR LIVES BUT Days of Villains only and Ron Carlivati’s follies! You like to promote whatever the producers say whether or not we care. Well for one: Eve is miscast, Brady has no charisma, Stefan is rather dull, monotoned, more Hattie Bonnie makes me sick, casting the twits from space is absurd when you are throwing out Patch for this crap. Mr Fariman, be fair for a change instead of rehashing NBC’s PR dept.

DAYS Cady McClain & Rob Scott Wilson Talk Being Recasts, All My Children Reboot, Future of Cin & Jennifer’s Bitch-Slap

Current Days of our Lives and former All My Children reboot stars, Cady McClain (Jennifer, Days, Ex-Dixie, AMC) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, Days, Ex-Pete AMC) chat with Michael Fairman in an enlightening and exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

McClain, who recently took over the role of Days of our Lives beloved heroine Jennifer Horton from mainstay Melissa Reeves (who chose to stay with her family in Nashville during Covid-19 thus forcing the series to recast the role for now) talks about stepping into the key part of the Salem canvas, plus the recent Jennifer/Kate fight over Jack (Matthew Ashford), and how the legacy series is coping with production during Covid-19.

Cady is no stranger to be a recast.  She was the second actress to play Dixie on ABC’s All My Children, as well as the second actress to play Rosanna on As the World Turns, and she had previously taken over the role of Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless.

Wilson also shares his hopes for his Salem alter-ego who is struggling to move on with his life after the supposed death of his wife, Ciara.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
