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: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!
