Seems like everyone and then some tuned in the week of March 21-25th, as the Jake/Josslyn drama begin to seriously unfold. Thus General Hospital, for the first time since March of 2005 has jumped to the #2 position in total viewers gaining +236,000 viewers!

Meanwhile in other news ratings news, One Life to Live scored viewers gains and remained at #4 for a second week in a row, and Days of our Lives which still dwells at the bottom as the lowest rated soap, did gain +45,000 viewers last week, but still tied a record low in total households for the second straight week.

Y&R lost a significant amount of viewers that week with a total of 196,000, but still is steady at number one. View the complete ratings from Soap Opera Network here!

Everyone blames Guza for bad writing. But if he keeps the ratings up he’s sticking around for awhile.

Im a DIE HARD EJAMI on Days but their writing is so bad right now that Im disgusted to watch. GH is my fave soap right now and with SCRUBS getting back together and Becky Herbst Staying- I am one happy camper

GH spiked because of two things:

1. Rebecca Herbst was rehired

2, Because of what fans HOPED to see. Unfortunately, Jake’s death was badly mangled with its lack of build up to Joss’ illness, with its rapid pacing and way too much focus on Jason and Carly. Luckilly, the stellar performances by Rebecca, Jonathan Jackson and Tony Geary, not to mentioned Jason Thompson and Kimberly, as well as Jane Elliot, managed to rise above it all.

Just watch the rating crash as the show returns its warped focus back to the Jason, Carly and Sonny show.

Rebecca wasn’t rehired last week during the ratings spike,,,that wad over a month ago. Death of children, weddings all spike ratings that’s why so many other soaps had weddings during sweeps also.

Many said they were tuning out because Jake was dying they either lied or news that he was dying brought old viewers back. I think they will fall again until the next dramatic plot point!

THERESA S,
THERESA S,

i love me some GH. it is my fav next to OLTL. I ENJOY all the chacters on the show. however right now i can slap Micheal up side his head. he better come out that phase he’s in now and come out of it in a HURRY……YESTREDAY, MICHEAL ! things are going GOOD for him but, he want to go into a phase.

i haven’t cried so much in a long time for a soap as i did to the s/l of JAKE. oh! how i cried. it was heart wrenching. when i stop crining, i got…… mad. mad people i didn’t thinking i would get mad at. JASON, CARLY,LUCKY, that sorry a $$ JAX and LIZ.
WHY DID THEY DO THAT TO LUKE ? they knew that was an accident . but i didn’t hear a soul asking, how/why JAKE was where he was to get hit ? why he was out in the street in the dark and so on. where was his mother . i always go by to the reading class i taught. CAUSE and EFFECT. OH. WELL ! I know i will have some more crying days to come. those are some great shows. i don’ care what the rating say.

I want to thank Bob Guza and Steve burton for the heads up on where the storyline for Jason Morgan is going…nowhere that I am interested in watching.

I loved what my buddy Nancy had to say after watching this: So he knew that having Luke be the one to hit Jake, would be the way to make it about Jason,Sonny,Jason,Carly,Jason, Lucky, Jason, Luke JASON JASON JASON

It does seem that Elizabeth and Cameron, who spent the most time with Jake, are afterthoughts in this stupid story. Will be FOREVER grateful to have had the Jason/Elizabeth scenes however.

The ratings spiked because of the liason scene promo and liason fans tuned back in.. the video of Guza and Burton was disgusting. I turned it off after Guza stated his story will be told which he was referring to Jasam. They rushed through the Jake storyline so Guza can tell his story that no one cares about. The Jake storyline was pure agenda and done horribly.. Guza couldn’t even give him a funeral or memorial or more than one liason scene (the parents of the child ran over) and gave his kidney to Joss who has no purpose on the show.. should have been Joss giving her kidney to Jake…that would have been an amazing storyline…but of course Jake reminds everyone and gives the hope of Liason and Frons and Guza are having none of that..

The Liason fanbase is the largest couple fanbase in the history of soaps and is still present even thought their couple has not been written together in 3 years yet Frons and Guza keep on with forcing Jasam.. first they tried to get rid of Becky and now they killed Jake and to add further insult to the fanbase we get this ridiculous video where Guza further insults the Liason fan base and Burton sits right there with him.. 🙁 so disappointing the PR behind GH…

The ratings increase is temporary as Liason brought 2.2 for the day they had a scene together. Jasam brings an average of 1.5 ratings when they are promo’d. So go ahead Guza tell your story we won’t be watching. This is why soaps get cancelled…so sad 🙁

I don’t think that the ratings increased because liason. The comment that liason got 2.2 ratings versus Jasam and 1.5 makes no sense. People didnt tune in for Liason, most wanted a story close to the BJ/Maxie storyline which till this day is one of GH best!! Liason had no part of it. And there is no evidence to support that liason is the largest fanbase in the history of soaps. Every issue of ABC Soaps in Depth has the two couples alternating almost every week which would make both fan bases VERY large. I don’t even look at Soap Opera Digest cuz those are robovoting for sure cuz the same couples, actors, and actresses could never always be the same. Soaps in depth had Spixie as # 1 for weeks and weeks but never got voted in at SOD and neither has jasam.

Liason wont fix GH. Better stories revolving around family, friends and romance is what will make the show better. I hope the people who tuned in for the Jake story arent too disappointed and will keep tuning in.

The very best thing I can say about that video is that it was desperation at it’s worst. The HW couldn’t have been any more of a suck up than it he had a hose connected to SBu and sucked his essence out.
I don’t expect any better from GH than these kinds of antics and isn’t that sad. If they go with a jasam baby/wedding/powwow whatever it will still be the same stuff they have given us for over two yrs.–crap.
If SBu thought that BS about jm having a big epiphany was flying he knows nothing about GH fans, especially long term ones. You don’t go from losing a child to having another in 2-3 months, but if it does happen it will only cement with fans that the whole past couple of wks was agenda driven poop.
Even worse it contradicted everything Guza said in the interview with TV Guide and confirms they are playing both ends against the middle.
I watched GH for 1 wk the one where Jake actually died and I did it for one reason only Becky Herbst and she killed that wk over and over and stiil it wasn’t from her POV it was from jm, lucky, luke even carly for pete’s sake but she was a stand out along with JJ and TG all three were excellent.

The rumors were true a lot of heavy male egos on this show!!!!! That is why I am no longer a viewer!!!

Do you think abc would do well if it got rid of Frons? GH took a dive when Brenda was brought back.. the killing off of Claudia wasnt a big helper either. The writing is just bad. so many dropped story lines… Tyler Christopher says they couldnt pay him and not only that they had no story line for him… wow… maybe they were so busy writing a book for spinelli they forgot to write for the show… its just time to clean house Guza needs to Go… the writing was better during writers strike.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”
