I hope Days will improve so ratings will go up. I fear if the ratings stay this low Days will be in trouble. With the holiday season upon us, I hope they will have more positive and upbeat storylines with romance and some happy stories. Let’s put the dark, mean, ugly stories behind us, and bring in the light which is so needed!

I believe GH is the best soap on daytime Television. The Death of Morgan storyline is providing some of the best drama in a while. The actors are fantastic . I would like to say the storyline where Nell sleeps with Sonny is not my favorite. I hope it is not true and Nell is caught very soon. I would also like closure for the pill swap with Ava; where Ava is finally punished. Too much evil goes unpunished and it is distressing.

Nell druged Sonny and nothing happened. I don’t know what she’s up to yeah yet.
Bobby’s off feeling about her is right on. I don’t like Nell she’s a little snake in the grass .

I suspect Nell is acting on higher orders. Possibly, she is acting on the orders of Jerry Jax. Maybe, Nell is Jerry’s daughter.
Just a wild guess–I do not know.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yeah, Sue. I, also, think nothing happened. But, Sonny fell right into Nell’s plans, whatever they may be.
Is she the child of some woman Sonny spurned?…..and, has she come to exact revenge?
Also, I also think she may be his illegitimate child…..That’s another reason I think nothing happened.
Lordy, Lord…..that would really be EWWWWY GROSS!…..GH would not go there!!

Celia
Guest
Celia

@Addison.
Hi, Addison. Could Nell be Jerry’s daughter, as you say? Perhaps, this is the reason Nell was a match for Joss. How perceptive of you.
Does Jerry have a bone to pick with Sonny? So, Nell is acting so sweet as a means to an end.
What a sycophant!!

Days is headed for NBC announcing its cancellation in late January. It would run thru September 2017 and be done. Its barely staying above the 2 million mark, not enough for NBC to renew it again, in my opinion.

It baffles me how GH’s ratings are up when the show is a total snoozefest with every storyline going on currently. The pacing is terrible. I just don’t understand all the love for a thug who has people killed for a living. I don’t like Sonny and Carly at all and it really bothers me that Morgan got killed. Will women really support every bit of garbage this once proud show churns out nowadays? I can’t take the show anymore and quit watching weeks ago. It’s nonstop doom and gloom day after day, week after week, ad nausem. The show… Read more »

I’ve also quit watching.

GH’s continued insistence on making a career criminal the focal point of the show and allowing him to get away with everything is disgusting. The world is depressing enough without subjecting myself to this show on a daily basis.

Dan
Guest

Hey Alan, you said Sonny being the focal point of the show is one of the things that turned you off, which is certainly your right to feel that way. But I’m curious, in a hypothetical situation, if you were in charge of making such decisions, which character or characters would you make the focal point of the show?

Alan
Guest
Alan

If I were in charge I would put Laura, Liz, Anna, and Ava front and center along with Valentin. I would make Laura the emotional heart of the show, grooming her to be the eventual matriarch figure. When GH was facing cancellation in the 70’s it was the show’s decision to focus on Laura that in large part saved it from cancellation and she has the most ties (both familial and emotional) to the various characters. I would shift the focus to more hospital based stories (both medical and romantic) and utilize Liz to greater effect, building on her being… Read more »

Alan…I love your ideas for GH. What I would add is a couple of stronger male characters. Too bad they’ve neutered most of them…Paul had potential until, they made him a serial killer in a pretty dumb, depressing story. Jax and Robert just drop into Port Charles once in a while. And Duke…they had to kill him off. And while The hospital is the center of GH, not too many life and worse stories. Also really like being Delia/Dr. O back the way you suggested. Actually Delia could be the “face” of Kelly’s.

Rose

Amanda…While I still watch GH it isn’t with the same anticipation I used to have. And it is mainly because of what you said in your second paragraph. It does have it’s moments, but that’s just it …just moments. I hope things will pick up.

The ratings show that the audience enjoys Sonny, whether you like him or not the show is only going to base things on the numbers. It just shows that despite all the internet feedback, the majority of the audience feels differently

Celia
Guest
Celia

Exactly, Sean. Every piece of storytelling; whether it be a novel, a book, a movie, a soap, needs good and evil…..good guys; bad guys, equipped with foils and and counterparts. This is what makes a drama ‘tick’, in my opinion. I cannot stand Sonny or Julian, but they are both necessary evils. I think what best represents these two ( and Ava) is that their quasi human ‘good’ qualities are inserted within their core. They are bad guys with feelings. We have seen them love, hate, and suffer passionately…..all the basic emotions which makes a human being. I write so… Read more »

Dan
Guest

Exactly Sean, what it proves is that the negativity and criticism directed at Maurice here and on other sites and forums is a vocal but ultimately small minority of the overall GH viewership. They are going to write their show for what the masses want, not for what a group of people on the internet want.

Alan
Guest
Alan

I don’t think this week’s ratings are proof that the “masses” want Sonny. The ratings for October 1st through November 4th which was a week of the non-stop Sonny/Carly pity party over Morgan’s death had GH down 239,000 in total viewers from last year as well as down 109,000 viewers in the women 18-49 demographic. Those aren’t good numbers. When the continued focus on all things Corinthos results in weekly gains and an increase in the coveted demographics over an extended period of time then a connection can be made between the two.

I am so glad to see someone else sick of Sonny and Carly. I could take Carly staying on if only Sonny wold leave the show permanenty. Carly could date new chaeacters for a while until they settle on someone interesting. The whole mob thing is out of date and silly. Especially when they go on and on about Sonny veing a great dad though all his kids have been almost killed. The Cassadines, Sonny, Luke and Jerry Jax need to be written out for new fresh actors and stories

Believe it or not, Carly’s smugness gets to me…like today when she spoke to Ava. Nice Carly I have no problem with. Smug Carly..which we see way too often? I’d rather see her and that smirk locked up before they threw the book at Sonny

Y&R is just biding time until Sally Sussman’s take on Genoa City begins. I am looking forward to what she and her team can do to revive my interest in what was a stately elegant and captivating serial. As a newbie to DAYS (since the mass cancellations), I have been disappointed but ever hopeful. GH has been clicking but because it is focusing on legacy characters and developing stories more deeply. B&B is just on endless repeat > same stories, different family members. Give these people something to do that really challenges them as people.

Celia

I am not surprised…..GH has been holding my attention. Most storylines are delivering all that a soap encompasses, albeit sometimes consisting of inane storylines . Examples: Sam and Jason…ugh; Valerie’s instant superior, displaced moral attitude…ugh; Jordan and weird shrink…ugh; Carly/ Jax/Nell/Sonny debacle is freakishly ridiculous…ugh; weaselly Nell ( who has no appeal in looks or otherwise) is exploiting her nefarious agenda, which I saw from the onset and said so….yet, her REAL plan is not forthcoming. So, the stage is set…..Will Carly find Nell and Sonny together? Is this her plan? To break up Carly and Sonny? Ahhhhh….and so the… Read more »

How should Valerie act? Hmmmm……let’s see; not with so much hauteur; considering her moral compass and code of ethics went out the window, the minute she decided to ” lay, lady, lay” with her cousin’s husband.
As far as Sonny?….. I think everyone is fed up with my opinion of him…..he’s in another chapter.

For the life of me, I cannot fathom why GH’s ratings went up. To watch Sonny morosely naval gaze? I thought that confession during the funeral was over-the-top silly and then that moron Jordan stands up and says,”Um, are you confessing to the murder of Mourning, er, I mean, Morgan”? It was the confession of a narcissist and call me heartless and evil, I wasn’t even close to crying. And hey, this comes from someone who cries watching that yellow lab trying to get his owner to take him on walk but the owner cannot because he has a back… Read more »

I get it, Banquo’s Ghost. I cry when the leaves fall.
You are so right. I said this before. Sonny’s pain twisted my heart minimally and marginally….lasted for a second. I did feel his pain in that instant.
Then, the aloofness and his selfish concentration on himself killed any pity I felt for him.
The anguish of losing his son pales in comparison to saving his own skin, with whatever evidence lays before him. Back to his old self…. what a guy!!

Glad to hear the positive ratings news for GH. The show has been excellent over the past month, in my view. And I’m glad the viewership numbers reflect that. I’m especially glad to see that a show featuring Maurice Benard, who is, in my humble opinion, the most unfairly maligned and criticized actor among commenters on this site, seemingly blamed for everything under the sun, I expect people to start blaming him for climate change and the national debt next, and an episode featuring him was the highest rated individual show on GH in months. He was brilliant on that… Read more »

Thanks Timmm, always respect your opinions. Same for you Cee Cee. Here’s the way I see it. Personally, I think Sonny is a great, complex character. He’s not all good, he’s not all bad, he’s both, shades of grey, if you will. Not black or white, cut and dry, good or evil. Both and sometimes at the same time. That’s what makes a great, memorable soap character, in my opinion. The ability to walk that line between good and evil. A character that we like and want to root for and feel empathy towards at times, but also one that… Read more »

I absolutely hate that the baby switcheroo story line has turned into a child custody case. Wait, scratch then–it’s turned into a visitation rights case.

Aside from the first 2 days of the funeral, I don’t think there’s been much action this month on GH at all. Compare this November to 3 years ago when Luke and Robert and Anna were battling Faison and Robin was on her way to break up Patrick’s wedding. This year’s November sweeps for GH are an epic bore as far as I’m concerned.

I really think on Y&R we are tire of Sharon being the problem child. The story line went on too long. The truth should have come out before the doctor was killed. The B&B we are tire of the love triangle between Brook/Kate and Bill. Than they created love triangle between Bill/Ridge over Brook. We are tire of Brook sleeing with some ones man that she is related to. You neex to bring someone new in the picture. Oh not mention how you are turning the Quinn/Eric/Kate story the same way.

Here is GH’s #1 problem besides Frank and Jelly, which is big enough! GH doesnt commit to the stories, actors or fans. Jax is a perfect example. Here is a character that can act his butt off, is so relevant and much needed. Case in point, he left Alexis right after she ran down Julian, literally blood on her hands and a drunk! Jax is needed! Carly and Jax are gold. She has a ton of mix feelings right now. Jax is needed! Sonny is outraged at Jax and Carly, he and Jax didnt get to play that out. Jax… Read more »

Agreed, Timmmy….especially the part of a connection between Nell from hell and Jax. Will he leave with the secret? Will we ever find out what compels this girl to act so intractably?
Yet, before she crawled into bed with a ‘dead to the world’, Sonny, Nell said, “Sorry”.
What does this sort of remorseful uttering mean? Not knowing is killing me. LOL.

Two things I avoid on all soaps are funerals and court scenes– I haven’t seen a soap due either properly for years— so I gave up, so I missed Sonny’s grand confession– just like I am missing the whole brother vs brother mess on Y&R over baby Christian. It is so unnecessary, Christian is Dylan’s nephew, why would Nick have any problem with them seeing the baby? Pointless drama is worse than bad drama. What bothers me about these numbers is that November is a sweeps month and if the soaps are doing this badly when they are supposed to… Read more »

Why on earth GH’s ratings are up is beyond me, with No direction Frank and the hack writers Jean and Shelley this show has been almost unwatchable since summer 2015, I continue to watch out of spite for ABC, they want the show to be terrible so that we don’t watch and then don’t care when they cancel it, I can’t think of any other reason why those 3 still have jobs.

I think GH is the best it has been in a while! Nancy Lee Grahn is portrayal of Alexis and her battle with her shattered life, career and alcoholism is moving, she deserves a daytime Emmy!

Hi CeeCee…I don’t think Valerie is angry with Curtis for working for Julian…well, that’s not the main reason. She’s pissed because he took pictures of confidential police documents that SHE left unattended. In essence, it was her responsibility to not leave sensitive material lying around in front of a civilian and it could have cost her her job..or a suspension… if Jordan hadn’t let it go. So, she feels like Curtis took a risk at her expense… Agree with you about Joss; I liked her from the beginning and am happy to see they’re featuring her more. She was always… Read more »

Guest

Thanks, Rebecca, but, I know exactly what Valerie’s beef with Curtis is. It still comes down to ethics, nonetheless…..she has none. That is my point.
And, Jordan fell into the same pit by ‘ignoring’ Valerie’s faux pas. Jordan should be fired for putting her own ethics on the line.
It was not Jordan’s call to dismiss Valerie’s complete disregard for rules….confidential documents which could jeopardize a case. Again, that is my point.
I suppose, soap or no soap; my ethical conduct is important to me; yet, I cannot expect the public to feel the same way.

Y&R, its number one because of their legacy and CBS believes in them. It is NOT number one for its stories. They are ALL horrible! Good actors, horrible scripts! I mean, Nick is fighting Dylan to stay away from a son he thought was his. Dylan is a cop, Sharon is Faith’s mother, are these two people that bad that they cannot become “Uncle Dylan and Aunt Sharon?” Oh and that HELLSea, I cannot wait until Sharon finds out Christian is Adam’s and she runs to Nick and sends that bitch back to the gutter where she belongs!

You know what this whole Chelsea/Nick thing boils down to, Timmmy? TPTB do not know what to do with Chelsea. She must be kept on the front burner ‘cooking’ nothing. Where is this story headed? Adam is dead….Chelsea needs to keep herself as a vital presence in Nick’s life because she thinks Christian is Adam’s son.

I think that if she is to stay on, TPTB need to devise a way to make Chelsea a real person….not a fill-in…..give her some maternal instincts instead of hanging around Nick and baby. You know? Give her another dimension to her mannequin-type persona, or send her to another dimension. LOL. I am not saying she should not have told Nick… Read more »

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
