RATINGS: DAYS Up Slightly While All Other Soaps Down!

Courtesy/NBC

The ratings are out for the week of September 21st though the 25th, and overall it was not a good week for your favorite daytime dramas.   The Young and the Restlesss lost -115,000 viewers bringing it to an average total viewer count of 4,399,000.  In addition, it had also tied itself again for an all-time low in the women 18-49 demo ratings share.

General Hospital did not have a good week, either. The ABC soap lost – 142,000 viewers, the most of any daytime drama series.   The series brought in 2,593,000  total viewers for the ratings week.

Meanwhile, The Bold and the Beautiful also struggled.  The series tied an all-time low in the womens 18-49 demo and 18-34 ratings share.

However, NBC’s Days of our Lives which is heading shortly into its 50th anniversary month in November, and continuing to bring back fan favorites, while adding potential new ones (A Martinez, Sal Stowers, etc), was up in the total ratings picture.  DAYS added +25,000 viewers for the week bringing its total average tally to 2,410,000.   The series also the only soap to be in the plus column in key demo categories: women 18-49 and 25-54.   View the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

Noe, it’s time for you to be our Soap Opera Programming Executive Armchair Quarterback:  If you were in charge of your favorite soap, how would you assess what’s working?  What do you think isn’t?  What constructive changes would you make?  Is DAYS delivering and meeting your expectations and more as it turns 50? Are the other soaps disappointing you … or, are they as exciting as ever?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

What started as a two-week hiatus from GH, it’s now turned into 5 weeks without watching. I had not missed an episode in 3 years until a month ago. I don’t miss the show at all and find myself watching an hour of more interesting tv in its place. I stopped watching GH in the 90s after being sick of the Sonny and Mob Show, and now it’s come full circle again.

So, am I the only one who was surprised that “St. Sonny” was not accorded a “papal visit” in his current incapacitated state? With the way he is treated like royalty in the scheme of all things Port Charles, it was the least the writers could have done for poor Dimples!

Shay, I believe the Pope had a secret meeting with Sonny which commenced before the meeting he had with Kim Davis.

@Shay.
Oh, my gosh…SHAY!!!!!! Where have you been? I just posted ‘I miss you’ on another thread.
A visit between the Pontiff and Sonny? You know what would happen if that would ever come to pass, right? The sun would shut down, the skies would roar in protest, the wind would crack and whip uncontrollably, and darkness would prevail.
I would think Sonny has been excommunicated by the Catholic Church. Later, amica mia .

But Suoo, how does the Pope’s coverage explain Day’s rise in ratings? Or Y&R’s? It doesn’t. Like Charday, I am not really watching GH. I have it on my DVR and pretty much DVR through all of the episodes. Frankly, I am worried sick. I am reminded of two things: 1. during the last year or so of AMC, my first soap opera, I was rooting for it to end. Yes, it got that bad and it almost seemed like TPTB were trying to ruin AMC so when it ended, the collective fan uproar would be muffled. and 2. Right… Read more »

It’s about the week..

I was not referring to past months, only to the WEEK, the ratings of the week..
And yes- the Pope was in America and had tv coverage and his appearance had near trillions and trillions and trillions of viewers,and I’d bet some were soap watchers 🙂
It’s only ratings no big deal, they always have been a rollercoaster.

GH down…maybe if retitled the Corinthos Story it would make more sense to those confused by the General Hospital title…Days refocus on vets and bringing back favorites and adding popular newbies with killer(pun) character driven drama is why Days is the hottest soap right now…only mistake is letting go KD as Eve…i feel there is more story to tell especially with Eves ex Eddie in town…Eddie could start dating Jen and Eve would cause them all sorts of trouble while Eddie has been keeping a secret from Eve…Paige had a twin!!!

Soaps ratings have been going up and down since they first aired on tv…im used to it…Neilson ratings use less than 5000 homes to help calculate ratings…and how can you trust what they claim to watch unless an electronic device is attached to the tv to keep track of what each home watches…back in the 70s we were part of the neilson ratings and we had to write down each show we claimed to watch…how would they know if we watched what?

Rose

Does Neilson track all viewing devise as well as the taped ones to be seen at a later time? Or even the ones I watch on youtube the next day when I missed one?

You got it, Jimh! Days’ refocus on vets–fantastic! So great seeing Patch and Kayla again! CHARACTER DRIVEN DRAMA–you got that right also! And the scenes are long enough to savor. Like I said in an earlier post, the scenes with the suspense surrounding the murder(s) mystery are reminiscent of the 40’s film noir. Go Days! I’ m watching you now! And enjoying it immensely!

I agree. Of all the missteps DAYS has taken recently, and there haven’t been too many, letting KD go was the most egregious. We need a vixen/bad girl on canvas and KD was doing a hell of a job. She was well liked by all, and she liked DAYS too. I think there were plenty of places they can take the character. It’s a shame she’ll be off soon.

I love Kassie DePaiva too, but one must remember Eve’s exit is in several more months.

Eve was the perfect replacement for Kristen as Salems vixen/bad girl and KD didnt come an go like like ED because of commitment to another soap!

Jules

Great comparison Jim!
Kassie more than proved her worth with 20+ years in soaps, but she has shown this week (and several weeks before…like the JJ/Eve reveal) to the DAYS crowd what an asset she can be with good material. I so hope the reconsider. She seemed to have a good rapport with Exec Producer Greg Meng so I hope he holds onto her number. A talented team player with much more to give.

For the first time in a few years, DOOL is MUST SEE TV. What is working: Theresa and Brady, and Abby and Chad are superstar couples in the making. The murder mystery is fantastic. The use of veterans is fantastic, especially Victor, Maggie, Julie, Caroline. I really want DOOL to reconsider letting Kassie D go. Her scenes for the past two weeks has been gut wrenching. I think there is so much that can be done with the character, especially with Justin, a friendship with Kate, having a career, etc. Eve had no redeeming qualities, with the only purpose it… Read more »

I definitely agree with you about Kassie DePaiva. I can attest to her tremendous versatility from her years on One Life to Live. Every scene she has done since Paige’s murder has been gut wrenching. I’ve been brought to tears several times. I was a mess watching the funeral yesterday. There is so much potential for some kind of relationship between Eve and Justin and a connection between Eve and Kate. I’ve said all along that Eve needs a man. We need to move on beyond her hatred of Jennifer. The powers that be are making a big mistake letting… Read more »

However, Llanviewer, by your moniker, I know we both still share extreme love for OLTL. That soap and its cast will live on and on forevermore in my heart. I have seen women on shows cry and sob over losing a child. But, Kassie did something I have never before witnessed. She exuded unbearable and insurmountable grief. Perhaps, the only other time was with the movie TWO WOMEN with Sophia Scicolone ( Loren), which I borrowed… Read more »

I’ve seen enough Carly Sonny scenes to last me a life time.

And what exactly is our favorite gangster peddling? Drugs? Underage girls? He’s not a hero or the moral center of any show worth watching. Billy Clyde on AMC was an honest, unrepentant villain and criminal. But he was never ever a hero.

Flawed characters are fan favorites. But there’s a world of difference between flaws and simply ignoring how Sonny actually comes by his oh so virtuous fortune.

Wow, Torqumada! Couldn’t have summed it up better if I tried. My thoughts exactly!

right, moreover, GH is returning back to the being the Sonny show and not an ensemble show.
There has to be a happy medium between the former and the latter.

Right on, Torqumada. But, Su will give you every excuse/reason in the book to justify what caca Sonny steps on with relish. There’s an oxymoron for you, right, Su? Lol. All in goof fun.
Yes, there is a vast difference…duly noted. As I keep saying, crime and baddies are an integral part of a show, but in most cases the bad guy gets caught….short lived. But, Sonny, as I said is superhuman, brought to us to be worshipped…..he will never die. And, when he does? He will go to Corleone heaven…he will be talked about until the next millennium.

DAYS is exciting right now, and that’s something I haven’t been able to say for a very, very long time. Not liking the violence, the killings, being shown so graphically. But the Ben reveal was done very, very well! With him opening the box containing all the evidence, then bagging it and throwing it into the harbor. And the music! From looking at the ratings, it seems like the return of fan favorites is what spikes the ratings. Monday was A. Martinez’ first day. The last day ratings got above 1.9 was the return of Stephen Nichols. Viewers tune in… Read more »

Back in the day when Patch & Kayla were first falling in love, we got to see every moment of their relationship, every little conversation, all the push-pull, two steps forward, one step back, it was aggravating, but oh so worth it when they finally declared their love!

General Hospital is disappointing me, because I’m not a fan of the mob. I like the good guys, the cops, the doctors, nurses. And I see very little of them. I also like love stories, and GH really doesn’t have any right now. Everybody’s in a triangle. Nathan & Maxie are happy, but they have no story together! They just talk about everybody else’s problems. Anna’s my favorite, but I can’t even watch her right now.

Oh, but they can afford to hire every out-of-work soap actor Frank Valentini meets at a cocktail party. As for Kim M., from what I’ve heard, Valentini was not willing to work things out with her. So he just trashed a beloved character instead. And, in so doing, he trashed every other character who loved Robin. You may not care, but there are lots of other fans who do.… Read more »

I only have one thing to say in why Y&R’s ratings are going down,Chuck Pratt. The soap has been at demo lows for a month. The show is deteriorating rapidly. Y&R is the lead in to B&B,so it may be starting to drag their ratings down. Not a fan of the mob and Sonny show on GH. Days is so so.

Days is up. that is good thing. Goes to show that promoting, actual promoting helps, a lot. Days was promoted. Promoting is needed for the soaps.. The promoting GH gets is the weekly sneak peek that is mostly GH fans that see the clips and Frank’s twitter. Yup, poor FV is promoting GH via twitter, ABC’s soap promoting is pathetic LOL The ratings are nothing much in realm of how it works.. The network and sponsor go by September to September numbers.

September is a slump month for soaps in general– summer story lines have finished and stories for November sweeps are just starting. I’d be more concerned if these numbers continue into October as sweeps story heat up — for me all soaps were in holding patterns until October, and we are already seeing things move at bit– Adam’s reveal on Y&R,, Ben’s outed as the killer on Days, Caroline coming clean about Thomas’ sexually assaulting her on B&B– Genie’s return on GH— yep, things should pick up soon for all four soaps.

Her return signifies movement in the Jake Jason story, there is no way Laura is going to let Jason and Sam marry other people– it is that plot point that will bring up the numbers, not so much Genie herself, but what her return represents story wise. When stories pick up, ratings usually go up–now I can’t predict if ratings increase for GH will be significant or long term, but in general ratings go up for all soaps in Oct to Nov– as for your other comment, I have been only watching for four years and Laura (Genie) hasn’t been… Read more »

Yeah, but Victor’s eyes, Timmm, like Fluke’s, scare me….they are lashless and rheumy. However, I do prefer him to Sonny.
Do you think Victor will have a heart attack? Afterall, he has had a heart transplant. Considering all his stress lately, he is on the threshold of having a heart attack, stroke or both. ‘Gotta’ be careful there with organ transplants….lifetime of medication and needles. Funny how he never visits the doctor…must be a very robust guy. LOL.

Days is giving its audience a good multi-generational blend of the vets and newbies in a more character driven storyline. It has been wonderful to see Patch and Kayla interacting again – the flashbacks are terrific! The anticipation of seeing Bo and Hope together once again is ratcheting up as well.

There’s a good chance for her to come back, Jeremy.

@ 4ever DAYS

I sure hope so. I HOPE they give Eve a short reprieve, and if Shane and Kim can’t return to Salem, there’s always Theresa to keep Eve in Salem. I hope DAYS has the sense to have Eve return later in 2016, with Kassie. That’s who we want in the role.

To be fair, GH lost me for life by what they did with frisco. But it seems to me, they continued that trend with Robin, Lucky, and now Paul is not the guy he was when he left canvas. Not to mention they appear from what I have read to also alter characters of Anna, liz, and Nicholas. So the “veteran’ cast members are alterned or not on (Lucy, Felicia, Scott).. or even just missing with no one giving a do dah. Ths storylines are pretty one dimensional unlike the old days where WSB or crime fit into other such… Read more »

. GH and its’ cornerstone the mob business has been GH since late 70’s. GH has been the mob since Frank Smith and a bit before that. If some haven’t liked GH the mob since 1980 .. 1980 when Frank entered Port Charles; ””Frank is a notorious mobster who employed Luke Spencer at his money laundering operation, the Campus Disco. Frank ordered Luke to execute a “hit” on senate candidate Mitch Williams. ”’ Frank committed numerous crimes while partaking in mob activities well before Sonny came to be. bottom line; GH has always had the mob and their foes and… Read more »

GH is far from the Sonny show.. Sonny has been in a hospital bed saying and doing nothing. lol It is about Michael, Morgan and Carly, actually. It is not about Sonny he is incapacitated. Love Paul he has Anna by the hair for sure. A good story about her plight and saving herself, if written right. Nik and Hayden rock, when it’s there turn again it will be good(an intriguing couple Love Franco and Nina! (a unique couple Dante and Lulu and Val is boring. but a love couple.

Hi, susu. Sonny has been doing nothing? For two seconds, yeah, true. But as soon as he wakes up, the first thing he does is to threaten Ava. Also if the writers think that by having Carly and Sonny married will gain a foothold in Avery’s custody case, they are fooling themselves. Then again, TPTB make up their own laws anyway…so who knows…sooooooo wrong. Please Su, I beg you, do not try to convince us that Sonny is a better parent than Ava, or Carly, for that matter. What makes these people think that a judge would award one or… Read more »

Days writing is good and like others have said it’s not addressing certain character’s…The thing i do no like is the lighting…to me the show is to dark in certain scenes and the background music is nothing like the Marty Davich days. Y&R will never be the same like the good old days. I tune in every now in then but I don’t stay with it. B&B…it’s my favorite for it’s has not changed over the years…Only complaint, I wish it was an hour and had more characters to write for. The sets and background music are the best and… Read more »

I to am waiting to see what the new writers do. One thing to ask, do these writers get to chose who stays and who goes? Because, the writing has been bad but there are too many characters on GH that get too much time and too many who get to little time. Like someone else said earlier, you bring Kristina back and she has been on two shows. Where is she? BUT, you’ll shove Valerie down our throats!

I stopped watching GH last March and I haven’t looked back since. I think that show has lost its way and I’m not sure that anything the new HWs can come up with can save it. I’m back to watching DOOL on a daily basis because I’ve been longing to see more John/Marlena, Justin/Adrienne, Bo/Hope (for however long it lasts) and the return of Steve and Kayla. I’ve come to like Chad and Abby alot. Based on past experience watching Chuck Pratt, he starts off strong and then the ratings fade, and it looks like he’s back to his old… Read more »

I think GH can blame their ratings loss on their “All Corinthos All The Time” approach since the week of Labor Day.

I’m very impressed with what Days Of Our Lives is accomplishing. General Hospital is my main soap and I, like many others, continue to be disillusioned with what I’m seeing. However, the disillusionment doesn’t have to do with the over emphasis on certain characters or themes. It comes from a sense that we, the audience, are not in the hands of a team that has an overall vision for the show or story arcs that are carefully planned and executed. Things change willy-nilly, sometimes seemingly at random, as characters are engaged in behaviors that have no root in motivation or… Read more »

GH was so bad last week. It took me 15 minutes to watch Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays episodes. I know people want romance and less violence but how the hell could anybody watch three days of Nathan, Maxie, Valerie, Dante, Lulu and Dillon. Oh god, it was pointless! You might as well put Sam and Patrick on that list because you know that wedding is never going to happen! Oh and Friday’s episode ends with dark haired Laura. OOOOOOOOOH! I hope these new writers have a plan or we will be down to three folks!

Days writing has picked up in pace only but the stories are all yawns. The only good story is the Necktie Killer. Robert Scott Wilson is carrying it right now. Amazing work. Kassie DePaiva is so good it hurts to know she won’t be on much longer. I hate all these old characters coming back. Patch and Kayla, Bo and Hope and John and Marlena. Who the hell cares? It’s all a stunt to gain viewers during the Anniversary of Days…All those old super couples pretending to be so in love and then after the celebration they all go back… Read more »

Yes, Michael Fairman posted two blog articles on the subject which included the clip.
Beautifully done and it restored my faith in humanity, in the power of soaps and in the power of Mr. John Oliver who has dimples as deep as the Thames.
I did not even watch Days when Sami and EJ were the “it” couple of the year, however, I am now rooting for these two to come back and and I join Mr . Oliver with his plaintive and shrill rhetorical query, “WHY EJ? WHY?”
Why indeed? Come back and make things right.

I do have to say that DAYS is on fire right now—I haven’t seen this much energy coming through my tv screen from this show in a long time. The other soaps are good as far as the stories go too. I guess it’s all in what the majority of the fans want to see or don’t care for as far as to what’s being told and who is being shown on air. What I find funny is how some of these comments claim they haven’t watched a certain soap or any of the stories but yet they still take… Read more »

Have not been impressed with Sal or Lani. What is Lani’s job? If she is a patrol officer, she should be out on the streets, not looking at the murder board. If she has a desk job, I could see Rafe maybe inviting her to look at the board. But any rate, she’s a transfer and would still have to go to the academy/orientation.

They tried this before bringing on beat cops and it never worked out.

Ratings are like the stock market constantly up and down. These are my reasons for not watching on a regular basis anymore besides going back to college with my daughter. Y&R I really don’t care to watch a grown man 74 years old scream and get into fist fights yes I am talking about EB/Victor really get over yourself on and off camera. B&B do not know or care about any of the characters anymore. GH no one running the show over there they have let actors bully and feel self importance long enough.

Days of Our Lives is a good show, without question, and a very traditional soap which is nice – but for a while there, they were being extremely innovative with storylines involving gay characters like Sonny, Will, Paul and Derrick. Then, suddenly, Sonny was gone – Okay, we get that the actor chose to vacate the role, but they could have done a recast. Will now is pretty much a supporting player, and I don’t know what Paul is supposed to do – and Derrick either moved out of town, or got a job as a Hotel clerk at Days… Read more »

Hi Aria…Liz SHOULD be turned into the town pariah! Each time she opens her mouth and feigns concern for Sam, encourages her to move on, discusses Sam with Jake…she seems more unstable. She just perpetuates her lie over and over again…when Sonny and the blind woman instinctively sense Jake’s Jason…and we have to listen to her whacked out attempts to wipe out any plausibility of that possibility to Jason…I find her maddening! I used to love her character. Oh. And what was the point of bringing back little Jake? You would think she wouldn’t let him out of her sight.… Read more »

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 . #❤️ #😘”
