The ratings are out for the week of November 10th through the 14th and General Hospital and Days of our Lives were the only two of the four network daytime dramas to be in the plus column in total viewers!

GH added the most with + 154,000 to bring its tally to back over the 3 Million mark at 3,074,000.  In addition, GH was the only show to add viewers in the women key 18-49 demo, and was the only soap to add viewers in the women 25-54 demo.

The Monday November 10th episode was one the most watched for the week for GH scoring a rating share and total viewers of 2.38/3,260,000.  In it, Sonny (Maurice Benard) was starring down the the barrel of a gun thanks to a betrayed Michael (Chad Duell). Next, the mob king is arrested for the murder of AJ Quartermaine!  Meanwhile, Ava (Maura West) is hysterical in the hospital that Nina (Michelle Stafford) and Madeline (Donna Mills) have kidnapped her baby!

In addition, the Wednesday November 12th episode was solid for GH with ratings share and total viewers digits at 2.39/3,176,00.  The episode opened with the Franco (Roger Howarth) narrated prologue which ends with the line, “This isn’t karma … this is revenge!”.  Later, Michael (Chad Duell) gets cozy with Rosalie (Linda Elena Tovar), Sonny (Maurice Benard) end up the slammer, and Nina (Michelle Stafford) having knocked out Madeline (Donna Mills) becomes further delusional.  Finally, Franco leaves a haunting videotape message for Carly to watch (after his bomb rigging ruse), as Franco orchestrates his getaway with Nina.

Over at Days of our Lives, they were the other soap to gain in total viewers adding +38,000 bringing its total to 2,411,000, while The Young and the Restless lost the most viewers for the week with -136,000, but note the top rated sudser is not that far away from the 5 million mark with 4,845,000.

Y&R though, had the most-watched episode of the week for any of the daytime drama on their Monday, November 10th episode bringing in 3.61/4,981,000In the episode, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) asked Billy (Burgess Jenkins) why Jack (Peter Bergman) has a picture of Kelly (Cady McClain) in his desk and begins putting two and two together.  Stitch (Sean Carrigan) tells Maureen (Meredith Baxter) that he is going to tell Victoria (Amelia Heinle) the truth tonight.  Adam (Justin Hartley) watches Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Connor on his computer and gets upset when Chelsea talks about Billy moving in.

As for The Bold and the Beautiful they lost -86,000, but they still holds strong in second place with 3,691,000 total viewers.   To view the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON click here.

General Hospital is on fire now, and the ratings prove that. The acting is wonderful, Chad Duell who plays Michael is doing an excellent job. I love Nina Clay and Ava Jerome. Maura West and Michelle Stafford need to win emmys for there work on general Hospital. Also Billy Miller is doing a terrific job as the new Jason Quartermaine. Days Of Our Lives is also a wonderful soap, I cannot wait until we see Melissa Archer as Serena. Molly Burnett is also back today on Days Of Our LIves. I am so happy, Melanie is back in salem.

General Hospital is so good, good acting all around fantastic story lines and jaw dropping episodes they are all Emmy worthy, each and every person who contributed to the show. Y&R losing viewers is not a surprise some the story lines are not that great. If you are not watching GH then you are missing out on some good stories.

To bad that the ratings for daytime move at a snell pace compare to primetime, where if a show starts to gain ground you can see it in the numbers. for some reason it takes longer for a show to over throw another show, i.e look how long it took gma to finally knock the very boring today show from its #1 position. You see the same thing playing out with the soaps, where its obvious that GH is a more entertaining show yet Y&R out ranks it in the ratings simply because viewers stay loyal to their shows even… Read more »

I KNEW IT! GH ratings rise again. Sadly, I feel the show has done this without 1 iota of help from ABC Daytime. CBS promotes their daytime shows! We must continue relying on Mr. Fairman and a few other sites to promote our show! Thank goodness for them and twitter! I feel the ratings would have been over 3 million last week as well if it wasn’t for Wednesday’s Obama preemption. Just that day they took a hit. I’m thrilled about this for GH because this is my kind of sweeps- fast, fun, outrageous, funny as hell, heart-breaking, shocking w/a… Read more »

Great to see GH being rewarded for putting on a tremendous show over the past few weeks. The acting, the writing, everything has been top notch, and firing on all cylinders. It’s nice to see the ratings finally starting to reflect what most of us have known for a while, that GH is better than it’s been in a long time! People are tuning in and liking what they’re seeing, and that’s what it’s all about. I’m enjoying the show more now than I have in many years. Hopefully they can keep the positive momentum going, and keep building those… Read more »

I watch all three and understand perfectly why Y&R has the highest overall. It is the most believable soap of the three. Nobody is ever possessed or has an embryo transplanted from one woman to another. People don’t go around packing guns and playing wise guys and mafia wannabes. The children don’t talk like little gangsters. It is a solid soap that keeps the largest number of viewers coming back every day.

Sheila, Y&R has had plenty of unrealistic s/l’s and are running a few right now. The whole Sharon didn’t know she had twins/Ian Ward was pulling the strings/Ian marries Mariah in a storage shed & torments Nikki as he please due to no security at Newman Ranch-just…no. Victor, not a doctor, finds a magic protocol (presumably he borrowed some from Robin Scorpio-Drake at Crichton-Clark), and pays off a magic doctor to wake her, just so Victor can stick it to Sharon. Nevermind the drug may kill her. But wait, then Phyllis awakes and hitches hundreds and hundreds of miles back… Read more »

Y&R ,some years ago had several ladies trying to steal Victors sperm ,so that was a little out there,it was Ashley who wound up with it ,so there is Abby,how she came to be.

Laurie the only thing I will say is that there is a vast difference between hard to believe and unbelievable. I recognize bias when I see it and to refer to Burgess Jenkins, who is far better known in filmography than is Billy Miller, as a cardboard clown is simply fanfiction at its best. Thank you for your opinion even tho it remains in the minority.

loving Days and GH. GH is great now that they’ve got Billy Miller & Michille from Y&R. I stopped watching Y&R on 1/30. GH is a little crazy, but fun. Days is more traditional love/romance based. Love Eleen as Kristen! She is extremely talented, and shines 100% more then at Y&R

“GH” is as great “must watch tv” as it was during Gloria Monty;s reign (with some help from Genie Francis, Tony Geary, Tristan Rogers)!!! The took the show from last place (out of 14) then, to the Number One spot, where it stayed for 10 years… Once again Laura/Genie Francis and Luke/Tony Geary, both under contract to ABC, were brought back together with their Son Lucky, and ratings did soar… During the Wendy Riche/E.P. and Claire Labine/Head Writer years the show went back to many real life events, relevant to that time as others, and “GH” was still the BEST… Read more »

I like your idea pertaining to Laura–she should come back as she is really needed.
I would like Tristan to come back as Robert Scorpio as well.
Currently, he is playing a con artist criminal on Y&R. While I can accept that the actor who once was the Super spy hero of daytime can play against type, I cannot accept that his character, Colin, is kind of a creepy, low level, inept criminal resorting to blackmail to cover his debts.
If Tristan Rogers is going to play a criminal, let him be one of the highest caliber.

Shocking. Sonny is actually held accountable for once in 20+ years and viewership goes up. That is something those of us who hate Sonny could have told GH 20+ years ago would happen.

Guess we will see how long this lasts. Sonny goes to jail, Michael becomes a Quartermain. So we have been telling them for yeeaarrs this was what we wanted No more Sonny. Carley needs to pay also .she destroyed evidence. She needs to go also. Send Joss to Jax. Nina made me turn the channel right in the middle of her torturing Ava and I am not even an Ava fan. It was disgusting. One thing that would keep me watching is if John Z gets to kill Sonny in jail.

Today someone sent me a link to the show Pure Soap that use to be on in the 90’s there was an interview with Tony Geary . He talked about how he loved the character of Bill Eckert and that to him he was not dead this was done in 1993. So my odds after seeing this are that if TG wants this to be his swan song Fluke is Bill Eckert. Happy watching GH fans thought I would share that with you rabid GHer’s ! 🙂

Sorry Janet but the people who took down Sonny killed Rafe. I think you need to go back and review AJ’s shooting again. I will leave it at that.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
