RATINGS: Days of our Lives Struggles, While All Soaps Down In Key Demos!

Courtesy/NBC

Courtesy/NBC

The ratings are out for the week of February 22nd through the 26th and it was not a good week for NBC’s Days of our Lives.  The series which had a nice uptick in total viewers during its 50th anniversary run of stories from late October 2015 through early January 2016 following Daniel’s  (Shawn Christian) death on New Year’s Eve is struggling of late.

In total viewers for the new ratings period, DAYS averaged 2,353,000.  That is -81,000 from the previous week and -69,000 from the same time last year. The series also tied its lowest rating share of all-time for the second week in a row in the womens 18-34 category, 0.32 (-.02/-.05)

The only daytime drama to add total viewers in this new ratings period was General Hospital.  The lone ABC soap added +26,000 bringing its weekly total to 2,968,000.  However, GH as well as Y&R, B&B, and DAYS are down across the board in all key female demo categories: 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.   Breaking it down even further, GH lost the most viewers in the 18-49 and 18-34 demo, while B&B lost the most viewers in the 25-54 category.

The juggernaut that is The Young and the Restless still holds firmly to the number one spot with just under 5 million in average total viewers for the week at 4,967,000, while its sister soap The Bold and the Beautiful also continues to maintain its number two spot with 3,766,000.   View the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,967,000 (-21,000/-399,000)
2. B&B 3,766,000 (-29,000/-280,000)
3. GH 2,968,000 (+26,000/-221,000)
4. DAYS 2,353,000 (-81,000/-69,000)

So, what do you think about the latest ratings picture?  What do you think should be done on your favorite soap so that more viewers till tune-in instead of tune-out?  Which daytime drama is working best? Which needs some help? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH is where it is, there has been no measurable or notable difference the past few weeks. The numbers are down significantly from this time last year in total viewers and demos. Down below 500,000 in 18-49 at 495,000, it was 620,000 last year. 460,000 18-49 numbers are what got RC fired and that was June & July when the numbers would be lower than Feb sweeps. GH has it’s audience that will watch Julian and Julexis and Franco the funny hero who loves kids and who feels all paternal and squishy with Kiki. Last week was a week that… Read more »

I don’t have much to add to AJQ’s insightful and spot on post nor can I add much to Patrick’s earnestly hopeful one. All I can say is that after Sonny jumped up from that wheelchair, production had to make use of the wheelchair investment, hence, Kiki is paralyzed. Good Lord, really? This is the best they can do? Alexis and Julian are all about sex–there is no romantic tension, nothing which tugs at the ole heart strings. And sorry, but Jason and Sam are a snooze fest. No wonder Kelly is mumbling more than usual–she is falling asleep in… Read more »

PS. Patrick, the other day Maxie told Nina to get a second opinion about whether she can have a baby or not. She was told by Brit that she could not have a baby because she had gone through menopause while in a coma.
Maxie said that seeing it was Britt who made this statement, she could hardly trust it.
Gee, could it be that fifty something Nina really cannot conceive a child at this post menopausal stage of life?
Honestly, if they make Nina get pregnant I will be beyond irritated.

I quit watching GH two weeks ago when it became clear to me that romance is no longer a priority on this show. Nathan&Maxie were promoted to have a marriage proposal, but what did we get? ‘Let’s shack up’. Lulu&Dante .. does anybody really want them back together after everything that’s gone down between them this past year? Not right away, that’s for sure! Alexis&Julian .. I’m sorry, but I cannot stand GH’s sorry attempt at whitewashing this scum. Nor do I buy Sonny as the ‘hero’. Then there’s Jason&Sam .. they are not a couple, they are a ship… Read more »

Maddie, I know, right? I come home after a long hard day at work and check out GH on the DVR. I find myself fast forwarding through the entire episode. I see a sea swell of faces I don’t care about–Sonny, Morgan, Carly, Nina, Franco, Ava, Paul, Jordan, Alexis and Julian and I find myself eventually giving up and pushing delete. There are times when I see flashes of faces which give me and the fast forward button pause–these faces are Mac, Felicia, Laura, Anna and Robert. But those faces are incredibly fleeting–I think of that line from Keats’ “Fled… Read more »

AJQ, I write this with respect. You always have a lot to say about GH, most of which to be perfectly honest, I don’t agree with. Which is fine, rational adults can disagree without being disagreeable. I do respect your passion for the show and your desire to see it be better. So a serious question. I’m very curious, as the long time viewer that you are, if someone handed you the reigns of GH tomorrow, what would you do to fix the show and get the ratings back up to where you feel they need to be?

AJQ

Dan, very simply I would write and produce a show that appealed to longtime General Hospital fans because they are the best bet for a larger and more consistent audience in the 18-49 demo. Fans who were teenagers, college students, twenty somethings, in the 90’s & early 2000’s are currently in that demo. They would watch a show with characters, families and actors that they know and love, that they remember fondly. This experiment of new characters and “superstars” from other soaps has brought no ratings. Julian’s wedding to Alexis, Kiki shot, Ava’s guilt and five straight days of Franco,… Read more »

(Save for the Michael Easton sentiments, which seem to be the only place we part company…..) How many more times do any of us have to spell out the issues we have with this soap???

I quite agree, Jimh, I’m almost ready to throw in the towel on DAYS as well. As I commented above to AJQ, soaps need romance to survive. That is why women tune in. The couples. Not the couples murdering somebody, or being blackmailed into having sex with psychopaths. In the ’80s, DAYS, like GH, had a winning formula of slowburn love stories combined with romantic adventures that kept the couples together without getting boring. When they had a winning pair, they did not say .. okay, they’ve been together a week now, that’s enough, let’s try a different pairing now.… Read more »

I know there has been a lot of people unhappy with the “doom and gloom” stories on Days, but the last few months have drawn me back in. Legacy characters and characters with ties to legacy characters are where it’s at. Sure the Steve & Kayla story lines could be even better… but having Kayla Brady and her love back on canvas is a win for the show. I agree they should have brought Sarah or Melissa Horton back instead of this Summer crap. Also, use your gay storyline and God forbid… actually have a lesbian story at the same… Read more »

GH is focusing too much on newbies because they keep casting new people, it seems like almost weekly they have a casting call for someone new, that will have about 10 minutes of airtime a month. I really don’t know how the writers can keep up with all the different characters.

If our soaps are supposed to bring viewers an escape, romance and adventure, even mystery and intrigue, none of them are doing a very good job. I might as well be picking up on the angst from the daily news, or for some, be more distracted by the other “entertainment” going on in the country right now.

Days has lost any sense of morality. Will’s death symbolized it. It was written by hateful and cruel and homophobic writers who assumed the audience was hateful, cruel and homophobic and would enjoy his death. Every single story since Will’s death has reflected that amorality and nastiness and presumption of nastiness in the audience. I don’t if the small – and it was relatively small – ratings boost even had anything to do with all the death and “excitement”. I think it was more about the publicity and the promise of the 50th. If Days had written stories of love,… Read more »

NBC have brought discredit to themselves with their silence on the horrific homophobic pander, and their pro-active praising of the show. In 2011, the head of NBC Entertainment, Robert Greenblatt himself won a GLAAD award – the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is presented to an openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender media professional who “has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community.” An Robert Greenblatt is the man with overall responsibility for daytime scripted broadcasting, ie.

Well said, Stephen. The killing of Will wasn’t just any “mistake” and plenty of fans recognized that. It was a hate pander, pure and simple, and they could bring Will back tomorrow and make everything a dream and it still wouldn’t change that. They are absolute moral cowards first for the way Will was killed off, and then the way they have stuck their pathetic heads in the sand and tried to pretend that we didn’t see what we saw. It’s public relations 101 – when you make a huge mistake, take responsibility and apologize. Of course, most industries don’… Read more »

There’s a potential huge audience for soaps, but it just isn’t there at a specific time during the day. Teenagers find the idea of scheduling time for a show absurd, when they can get what they want when they want on youtube. People into these stories will watch pirated youtube clips from work rather than wait to DVR them, and that isn’t a bad thing it’s a good thing. It’s just that it doesn’t fit with the old, moldy revenue model. In the UK, soaps are released online when they broadcast. If any of the soaps did that, it would… Read more »

Excellent critique, kiki, and it makes me sad (and angry) to agree with you, since Days was my favorite of the four until the gay-bashing murder of Will. And I had been watching it for decades so it wasn’t “gay-fad” watching like some will insinuate. I never thought it could get worse, but it has actually continued its vile storytelling! I’m very close to leaving like I did GH after decades of being a devoted fan (and will never go back), so maybe this will give TWO extra hours a day to do something more interesting in my life.

I agree as well. I have a small circle of friends who all watched Days – mostly via DVR and online – and they have all stopped watching. We laughed and rolled our eyes through the elephant story but starting with Will’s obviously homophobic death, one by one they dropped off. The last straw for the last watcher standing was Chase raping Ciara. It’s just sick. As the mother of a gay son and longtime watcher, I stopped with Will’s death and I won’t go back. The new writer may be gay, but unless they admit to what they did,… Read more »

I have two teenage girls, and they devour Korean soap operas on Netflix and Youtube. The only story that they ever showed any interest in on Days was the Will/Sonny/Paul triangle, and they watched it not with mom but on Youtube. We aren’t Asian, either, it’s just the Korea soaps offer a kind of melodrama that appeals to them that none of the American soaps manage to do.

You have to keep the characters constant. We don’t get to really know them before they’re killed off. We’re always wondering which long time character will be the next to leave and that’s not suspense, it’s misery. I’m not interested in a storyline about a bunch of teens. I’ve watched the show for too many years to resort to that. If you need to give them major storylines then send the right message regarding rape, etc. let these kids know how important it is to trust their parents. The storylines are just getting so ridiculous. We have enough crazy stuff… Read more »

Days– each of their dark stories by themselves would have been okay, it was because they did one right after the another that it got a bit too much for daytime and that is the key, daytime is different than prime time. If in August the new writing team wants to pull a Dallas and make the whole last year a dream that would be fine by me. Usually Days has the best Feb sweeps, but this year they were dead last, no pun intended. GH– it is very uneven these days, when it is good it is very good… Read more »

A dream is probably Days’s only shot at survival. Griffith & Higley didn’t want to save the show they wanted to destroy everything that TomSell did, especially what was working. Hope/Aiden and Will/Sonny/Paul were the stories that viewers actually seemed to enjoy and engage with and they destroyed them. Killing Will so maliciously and with pride that they were pandering to those who hated having a gay character was just disgusting, but what was done to Aiden and then Chase was equally disgusting. I’m not exaggerating either. I felt true disgust when those stories unfolded. I’ve never felt that way… Read more »

AJQ’s post — above — is brilliant and absolutely on point. Sweeps was Julexis, the Corinthi, and the mob/arms deals. There are a lot of us who do not want to see this rehash of the kind of emphasis that has consistently tanked GH. Last Friday was Morgan and Sonny day, and a huge ratings loss. There is a message being sent to TPTB of GH by viewers. TPTB need to take us seriously. As has been proven time and again, healthy ratings will never result from Corinthi 24/7, mob action, and over-hyped, one-dimensional pairings like Julexis. This isn’t rocket… Read more »

I certainly understand why Days is losing viewers. TPTB had made multiple boneheaded moves: 1. The boring elephant statue story they gave Melissa Archer. 2. The one note character they gave Kassie DePaiva. Kassie and Melissa are very talented, compelling actresses who can carry complex stories. Both deserved better stories to tell. Please don’t make the same mistake by wasting the talent of John Paul Lavoisier and Vincent Irizarry. 3. Destroying Will and Sonny. Yes, Freddie Smith decided to leave and no one liked Guy Wilson.

I liked Guy Wilson better than I liked Chandler Massey. One was overrated and one was underrated and both are a thousand miles better than pretty much anyone on the show now. However, there’s little doubt Guy Wilson was the victim of a smear campaign orchestrated by some insane Massey stalkers and then was the victim of the double standard that queer characters are always held to. Personally, I thought there was tremendous potential in a Will and Paul pairing – and their chemistry was better than Will and Sonny by far. Moreover, the show’s current attempt to use Paul… Read more »

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
