A key week in November Sweeps is in the books, and for the ratings week of November 2-6, it was ABC’s General Hospital who delivered the best performance, with NBC’s 50th anniversary darling, Days of our Lives also delivering increased numbers for the network and its best week in 20 months.

Looks like the Jason (Billy Mille) reveal, and Liz’s (Rebecca Herbst) wedding to “Jake” AKA Jason leading into it, garnered GH the most gains of any daytime drama for the week adding +254,000, and netting an average of 2,877,000 in the total viewer category.   GH also was up in all key womens demo.  Especially noteworthy were  its gains of +119,000 in the 25-54 demo, and adding +94,000 viewers in the key 18-49 demo.

As for Days of our Lives, we already reported that they reached a 20-month high in total viewers for the week on the stregnth of their storylines which included: the bicentennail celebration, which led into Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Aiden’s (Daniel Cosgrove)wedding, which led into Bo (Peter Reckell) coming back to save the day, plus Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) kidnapping Abigail (Kate Masni)!  DAYS gained +63,000 total viewers for the week, and was strong and up in all key womens demos .  Previously, in the last few ratings report DAYS leaped ahead of GH.  However this time out, GH is the one who leaped over DAYS despite a fantastic uptick for the gang in Salem.

As for the number one and number two soap operas: The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful.  Y&R once again hit over the 5 million mark in total viewers during its Thursday November 5th episode.   Y&R continued to be way ahead of the pace of the other daytime drama series netting an average of 4,859,000 total viewers,  even though they lost viewers during the ratings week.

Y&R was also up in the 18-49 and 25-54 demos.   Meanwhile, B&B did not perform as well losing -114,000 total viewers, and being the only one of the four soaps to lose viewers in each of the key demos.   View the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,859,000 (-68,000/-122,000)
2. B&B 3,520,000 (-114,000/-257,000)
3. GH 2,877,000 (+254,000/-43,000)
4. DAYS 2,721,000 (+63,000/+348,000)

OK, time for you to be our Soap Opera Programming Executive Armchair Quarterback!   =What soap is having the best November Sweeps on-air in your opinion?  Do you think GH can stave off a run back to the number three spot from red hot DAYS?  Has General Hospital turned a corner under new head writers Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman?  Too soon to tell?  What changes would you make to your favorite soap to continue to, or increase viewership?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

All the crazy nonsense over ratings, sigh..
Even with J&S , GH was destined to rise, after all it is General Hospital.

Ratings are a rollercoaster, always have been always will be..
Never bet the odds on the numbers..

Great to see all the soaps doing well !!!!

Ratings are the reason we lost many soaps, Su. Like it or not, the numbers are what the advertisers look at…that and the ever-present advertisers preferred demographics. So, it is encouraging to know that GH rises after it falls…and in what groups…because if it was going consistently down it’d
be gone.

They were ahead of Gh for couple weeks and they up over 300,000 from last year. Learn how to read ratings .

Rose

Some questions I have just out of curiosity. Not earth shattering. Just wondering if time slots affect ratings of shows? For instance if I’m going to miss one “live” it’s GH because I have had to pick up kids from school , or some such errand when GH is running. Also wonder how many of the same viewers watch more than one, two, etc soaps most days? Judging from the comments on MF there are quite a few.

KansasGuest
Guest
KansasGuest

“Live” viewing is not as important as it once was, especially with local news pre-emptions that happen unexpectedly. The measurement now is “Live+7”, meaning live viewing + 7 days of DVR/delayed viewings are added together. Executives know a majority of viewers cannot watch live in the afternoon because they work. It would be silly to exclude employed viewers as unimportant. Now, those who either DVR their programs, or watch via streaming services like Hulu or On Demand, or apps via iTunes are all included in the numbers if they watch within 7 days of the original episode date. (BTW, those… Read more »

I don’t understand how B&B can be in the top 2 soaps. It’s horrible. The writing is so bad. The characters just keep repeating and repeating the same thing over and over day in and day out for weeks at a time. I can’t stand watching it anymore. Boring, boring, boring.

Ces

Ah, Ces. Y&R has only been monotonous in movement these last couple of years. I agree there. But, there was a time that Y&R offered everything; passion, humor, sadness, happiness, frivolity….you know what I mes, I’m sure. Please don’t scratch your beautiful eyes out (I’m sure they are) LOL.

These numbers equal or outdo primetime offerings on the broadcast networks and on many cablers. I think that needs to be noted. Daytime remains a vital daypart, and dramas should be part of that makeup.

KansasGuest
Guest
KansasGuest

Sorry, but that is simply not true. The top 15 primetime shows all get over 10 million viewers every week. CBS’ THE BIG BANG THEORY & NCIS – the top 2 shows in the nation every week – have roughly at least 15 million *live* households watching every week. Their Live+7 rating, which includes DVR viewings 6 days after the episode airs, easily bumps that number up to 18 million. I like my daytime soap. But, if you want to compare soaps to primetime, their numbers are on a par with shows on the CW, FOX & TNT. One of… Read more »

Well, im still correct…they tuned in a week early so they wouldnt miss her just in case she showed up then…lol

AJQ

AJQ

So I guess no one wants the Sonny/Carly/Jason show may not be correct. It really isn’t surprising that after a year of waiting for the Jason reveal that people tuned in is it? But more importantly, this reveal, this story, is about central GH characters and Vets. Sonny, Carly, Sam, Elizabeth, Jason, Patrick etc. It’s not a coincidence. In September when the focus left Franco & Nina the ratings went up significantly from August when they dominated. They improved greatly. They held the numbers they got back to through October and now they increased a bunch with the Jason reveal.… Read more »

AJQ, I do believe there is a direct relation between ratings plunging and the Franco and Nina debacle. Almost no one likes this grueeome twosome. I will fast forward through all of their scenes and if they’re on too much per episode, I won’t watch at all. I know I am not alone in this. And here’s a question–if the executive suits bring in the likes of Robert Scorpio to boast ratings, it signifies an awareness that vets like Scorpio do help ratings. Following that logic, why not sign on these popular vets to long term contract rather than just… Read more »

They have a huge fan following..
Most all I know who what GH luvs ’em too!
They are an unique couple=AWESOME!! soap fresh..

I hope Franco goes apesheet crazy!! that would be fun, but doubt it 🙁
He needs some bad boy pills to get him up and going! 🙂
I’d luv to Franco & Nina getting it on, hope its a bit kinky because they could pull it off..

AJQ
Guest

Harry, it does beg the question of why aren’t there more Vets on contract and utilized more? It does beg the question of why GH history, legacy is not treated properly and respected? There is ample evidence from the last four years now that ratings increase when Vets are on and when GH history is respected. Even without the empirical evidence they have, it is only logical, this is a 52 year old soap, it is the nature of the genre. I know the answer, but I’m not sure why it is still allowed. Frank and Ron came in to… Read more »

Such a well written and thought provoking response, AJQ–thank you. My feeling is that Stafford has no idea who Nina is? Is she mentally challenged? Is she suffering from psychosis? I don’t know and I do not think Stafford herself know. Her mannerisms and gestures are indicative of a fifteen year old girl, not a fifty year old woman (this is not an age crack, merely an objective observation). Nina acts childlike and Franco treats her as he treats Kiki–like a father, not like a lover. Then they stick these two in a dark apartment and isolate them (discounting Kiki,… Read more »

I think you’re overstating AJQ. Valentini has no stake in Roger Howarth’s career…he, as he should be, is more interested in his own. If GH goes off the air he loses his job…again.

I, too, would like to see a lot of the vets back and not just for a visit. At the same time I think Franco and Nina are being written much better so I’m interested to see if they can be better incorporated into the GH canvas.

CeeCee

I agree with su, Harry. It may not mean much, but I love Nina and Franco…..and, recently, I have begun to like Kiki. This newborn alliance between Maxi and Nina gives a positive vibe to where this ‘editorial’ storyline will go.

Both Harry and AJQ state GH’s situation so very accurately. Their posts here not only succinctly explain how many of us feel and react toward the characters mentioned, but also present the most logical question: Why after such lengthy, failed runs do they remain on the Port Charles canvas??? (In addition to those referenced, one must also add Sappy—and at least a few others—to that list of inexplicably enduring players….these antagonizing interlopers make me totally cringe and definitely motivate me to tune out whenever there’s even a whiff of their presence….(About the only place I part company with these two… Read more »

@Harry….AJQ termed installing Dr. O. as COS as a “wrong,” and implied that it turned off fans and should be corrected. Someone else made a similar comment on another recent thread….I know you have said as much before, as well. Therefore, I was responding to that train of thought. Whilst I had no problem with seeing more of Liesl in her capacity as the head honcho of GH, I do think that there was a very uneven approach to the execution of her duties in said position. One day she would be all business in her unrelenting Germanic manner of… Read more »

Oh for crying out loud. I’m so sick of the whining about how Frank & Ron wanted to keep the title GH but make it a completely different show. The first few months of their regime was the best that GH had been in years. For once, it wasn’t all mob, the stories were spread out over the canvas and the hospital was once again a key scene in the show.
I don’t think I’ve ever disagreed with someone’s posts as much as I do with you AJQ.

Dan
Guest
Dan

Haven’t always agreed with you in the past, AJQ, but I agree with you wholeheartedly here. You would think the ratings would be all the evidence the powers that be need to see that the vets need to be on the show more. I know they can’t sign them all to contracts, because they have a very tight budget. But as many as them as possible should be. They are the characters the fans want to see the most, as the ratings clearly reflect.The ones that aren’t on contract, that doesn’t mean we still can’t see them more often. There… Read more »

Dr. O has plenty of fans and she deserves to be Chief of Staff . Just because she is not a coveted “Vet” should not diminish her place on GH.

Shay
Guest

Absolutely, Lou Piikes! Kathleen Gati’s Liesl Obrecht is a total treasure! Both she and her daughter Britt (Bring her back!) were fabulous additions to the GH canvas….they were introduced in textbook soap opera fashion and only flourished in response to positive fan reaction, not simply because the showrunners wanted to shove them at the viewers in a non-stop feeding fest. I do realize that the tremendously talented Ms. Gati is in high demand for many other acting projects, but her Dr. O. needs to be brought more front and center and given greater airtime. Her mirth and merriment is always… Read more »

I appreciate your defense of Dr O, Lou and Shay but I cannot see anyone being critical of her beforehand. Perhaps I missed it.
I think Kathleen Gati is an incredible talent, however, I always thought it was an unmitigated mistake to make her, a kidnapping, sadistic, cartoon-like villain, the chief of staff. She was always at her best lurking in the shadows plotting away with Faison.

Absolutely, Lou. Liesl doesn’t even have to do anything but stand there to get me going. As Shay says, her mirth and merriment is a breath of fresh air among some of these stuffy, tiresome characters.

I agree with you AJQ. I find it downright insulting that the COS of General Hospital is an international criminal. I am also one of those GH fans who will turn on the show live, and if it is an episode that has Franco and Nina on, then I shut it off and watch on another venue where I can skip them. I truly am repelled by the character of Franco – and Nina makes no contribution whatsoever. That said, the show is much, much better with the new writers. And if they start to actually write a story for… Read more »

And I would be extremely happy if they got rid of Julian and Ava Jerome as well. Which says something because I was completely interested in Olivia Jerome’s story, along with Victor and the first Julian Jerome. I think it was a horrible mistake for Frank to bring in all these non-GH actors and give them all the air time. If he would have slowly integrated them into the canvas it would have been much more successful (all except for Roger H as Franco that is, and Roger would have made a terrific Quartermaine or Cassadine).

GH definitely had a good week and I made sure to tune in for it, so these numbers don’t surprise me. DOOL is still doing well. But I’m concerned that yet another dark story on the show (Bo’s tumor) is going to take its toll. There has been much too much death and illness on Days and you can’t just ignore it and celebrate the holidays. Shows have made that mistake in the past and paid a ratings price for it. Viewers want to escape when they watch soaps. They don’t want nonstop grief and loss, especially when they’d rather… Read more »

The teens were interesting, especially liked that new Theo’s autism is being explored. Abe has a daughter! Loved Julie’s talk with Ciara about the very first episode of DAYS. Jennifer, Maggie and Adrienne reminiscing about the great weddings of the past. Yet 400,000 fans who tuned in Monday tuned out Tuesday. Maybe those fans don’t care about the history of the show, they… Read more »

It always kills me when they brag about the demographics and they leave out those of us who have watched General Hospital since the first show, April 1, 1963. Do they not care about those of us who have been there since day one? Maybe they don’t want the competition of having someone who knows the show longer than the writers or any of the actors.

It is not exactly about being undesired.

When it comes to advertising they want people who don’t have brand loyalty yet. Younger viewers are new and while they may not have the money yet they may get them to be loyal to a brand/product that they aspire to have when they can afford it.

Nicole
Guest
Nicole

MTA,

The show also has to have a future. If any show is to last for another generation they need younger audiences to replace the older demos. Right now the under 250,000 in 18 to 34 is not going to cut it. And the days of passing a soap down from generation to generation is long gone.

The soaps are a business to the networks.
The suits are not emotional they air the soaps to bring in money when they stop bringing in money they will be gone from a business decision nothing emotional.
The sponsors want their products sold, they look for certain ages. It is about making money.
They do not care how long someone has watched a soap they care about the profits.

Nicole is right about the reasons behind storyline decisions, and the characters that are put on front burner vs. back burner. Joni’s comment is typical of longtime viewers, basically, “Why don’t they care about me or my demographic?” “Care” is the operative word in that question, implying that business decisions are made on an emotional basis, which is never the case. I’d put forth that viewers need to keep in mind that tv is a *business* first & foremost. While executives (like any businessperson) appreciate longtime fans/customers, that is not what keeps the tv show/business running. Any business needs to… Read more »

I love to watch GH but the storyline for the Jason reveal could have been better like when Carly told Jake he was Jason he could of thought that’s why I had those flashes of me and Sam together. And now since Liz and Nik are good friends if Nik nows then maybe just maybe Liz might now something as well it would have been nice if they had Jason think like that. And also it would be nice if they gave better storylines to the others as well instead of just focusing on Sonny,Carly,Michael,Morgan,Ava,Jason,Liz,Sam and Patrick that is jmo

Hi, Carol.
That is a great point. You are so right! …why didn’t Jason stop to think that Liz and Nik spend a lot of time with their heads together? I thought, it was probably because his mind is all over the place. Perhaps, sooner or later, all the pieces of the puzzle will come together one by one. So look out Lizzie, you’re ‘gonna’ get yours.

Not surprised. DOOL, even with all the returning characters and 50th anniversary, has been blah. Viewers tuned in to see everyone but didn’t stick around.

Take a chill pill. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. You may be “4ever Days” but I’ve watched the show for 30 years and it’s the worst it’s ever been. AGAIN people tuned in to see the returning characters. It’s a temporary gain. Mark my words. You may want to read this article again as well….GH took back over the #3 spot without 20 returning characters. Now go get a life and let everyone else have an opinion as well bully.

Days has been fantastic and riveting. I am not a long time viewer by any stretch of the imagination but have been DVRing it faithfully every day. What brought me to Days? The vets–Bo, Hope, Steve and the whole dynamics of the Horton/Brady clans. In short, it was Days’ history which made me watch.
And this comes from a non Days watcher who fits the age demographic, albeit just barely. I don’t quite trust these numbers. I am sure they will be higher upon the next reporting,

Harry
Guest

Wow, JJ–I would hardly calll 4 Ever Days a bully with her over zealous comment which is full of unbridled enthusiasm. I might, however, call you one with your acerbic response to her. I might, but will not because I think the word “bully” is being vastly overused as well as misused.

Nicole
Guest

I agree Days has been on a slow rise for months, which means it is more likely that their gains will stick. Plus they are the only soap whose numbers are above 2014. GH had a good week, it isn’t a reversal of trend, nor are they above 2014 numbers. Only time will tell if those things happen. Plus if they do it will be a spike because of Robin/Roberts returns and when they leave the ratings will crash again. But even those returns won’t be a guarantee because when JJ came back during the worst ratings slump the show… Read more »

Oh, my gosh, JJ. With all due respect, Days has been riveting. It is holding its own, and the return of vets for the 50th anniversary is peripheral to the viewers tuning in. I am enjoying days, with or without the vets because of the storylines….the necktie killer story has branched out; leading to possibly multiple storylines. But, hey, if that’s your take on the livelihood of this soap, sobeit. You have a right to your opinion. Personally, I think Days is well within the perimeters of what makes for an outstanding Daytime offering. Peace out.

Thats why people are shocked you are unhappy with the show. You have watched for 30 years. You have seen a lot and expect a lot. there is nothing wrong with that. In other words, you have a right to be disappointed. Unfortunately you are in the minority. That doesnt make you wrong. Take care.

But, you decided to insult 4ever, and Harry came to his defense. 4ever is a complete gentleman, to the point where he didn’t even acknowledge your barb.

I wonder if Billy Miller is bored? Day 2 after the reveal and Liz walks around acting like a saint, Sam is throwing herself at someone that doesn’t give a dam and is it me or has any remote amount of chemistry that Sam & Jake/Jason had flew out the window with the reveal?
I actually don’t think Sam should have either guy; especially feel sorry for my favorite Patrick who is getting the sh*t end of the stick. Too bad Jason T. is leaving and please no recast!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Everything you say is on point, Ces. The only thing different I see, is Sam showing some life. This is the second time where I did a double take, where she is concerned. I want to punch Liz, at this point. So, today I was actually loudly speaking to my TV set….” Get her, Sam, smack her!”
Now, you must understand I am not a violent person, I don’t even believe in spanking my kids….it is a no-no, but Liz and her innocent, pure act makes me see red. Later.

Ces
Guest
Ces

Oh, Liz definitely needs a good smackdown. I’d see Hayden giving it to her maybe. My wish would be that Jason never speaks to her again.

Hopefully Jason & Sam still have some chemistry once this is all said & done but sometimes it feels awkward between them. Maybe because both actors are bored with the whole storyline. I think it dragged out a wee bit too long.

@Harry. I thought all those things concerning Hayden, Harry. I even mentioned it a couple of times. She could very well be Paul’s daughter and working with him and Dillon; ELQ being the prize. She could be pretending in aiding Tracy, but she is underhandedly doing it for ulterior motives. I suppose she could also be working on the right side of the law. I am just very confused about Paul. What exactly is his deal? There’s not one specific thing that makes me go, AHHH!! I see, that’s what he’s after!! This consortium he has developed with Ava is… Read more »

hey CeeCee..
they are not real so slapping is OK.. lol
there hasn’t been a good cat fight in years, perhaps???

heck with Haden and Liz– I want Sam and Laura to get a good a azzkicking! A cage match to the bell death!
Laura needs her big snoopy nose knocked off .. ahaa!

I’m into Haden and Nikolas , they have a mixed bag of heat ..
Nikolas is the sexyist hotest most aluring man on GH when he wearing Cassidine hat 😉

@su.
Absolutely true. Right now, the sexiest couple on soaps is Nik and Hayden. I’d like to see a good old-fashioned cat fight myself….ones such as Sam, Hayden and Carly ganging up on Liz. I don’t really like these thoughts; however much Liz deserves it. I sound too bloodthirsty, Su. But, I can’t control where my mind goes. Not real, so it’s ok! You said it!

the day of the reveal, later that night… as Sam leaves Patrick house

she rides “Jason” motorcycle over to Liz house…

and matter of factly tells him… “so much is yours” “you can come over and visit Daniel Edward any time! ”

???

woah!

roflmao

I rest my case

it was the dumbest lamest excuse for a reunion of : Sam and Jason Morgan

GH: keep these two

Liz deserves to be out of this tryst

one of the things that just bugs me to no end… Hayden is riding Nicholas for all she can… and it doesn’t bode well for Nicholas nuBAD boy image… if he’s falling in love with her… or getting some… so be it dump her… he revealed to Hayden… she was faking her amnesia… kick her to the curb… start thinking Nicholas Cassadine… align with Liz… and power act yours come hell or high water… Cassadine empire is whatever the reveal… let them fight for it… Hayden and Traci let them do it the hard way… i’ll use MarySF … words…… Read more »

GH is terrible, unwatchable almost. DAYS IS THE BEST

I realize it didnt take a genius to predict this but I told you so, GH would pass Days. You knew with Jason being revealed to all this would help the show. Lets see if they can continue to strengthen their numbers. It seems possible since there is much more story to tell about Jason, Robin is back, Anna is one fire with Paul, Hayden is rocking it and I still say she is Tracy’s daughter AND Robert comes back next month! GH is on fire! [I know, I sound like su0000!]

You are so right, Timmm. I have not, for a very long time, loved or even liked GH. But I love that I am loving it again. I really was intending to be done with this show, but the new writers have encouraged me to stay. And I am glad.

@ Timmm…Hi… How do you figure Hayden could be Tracy’s daughter ???
Love it if that’s what the writers choose to do, it would really cement her roots
in Port Charles..Pairing Tracy and Hayden together is sublime.

I saw them sitting on the bench together on Fridays show and I was taken back how much they looked like family. Tracy had a lot of men in her day and Hayden could be hers from an old love she had on or off screen? It would be great for those two to fight each other and watch how in the end, they come together because thats what Quartermaines do!

Hi, lovely Fanny. It could easily turn out that way. You guys know soooo much more than I do. Was Tracy a player in her youth? I love the idea of Tracy being Hayden’s mom. I was even mentally turning Hayden into a good ‘guy’, but, it seems everything she does is for revenge and money. I suppose she will never forget that Nik tried to have her killed. By the same token, she could have still had her her cake and eat it too. She could have assuaged her revenge by insinuating herself more assuredly by cementing herself in… Read more »

Considering how Nick went about stealing ELQ right from under the Q’s noses…
Tracy wanting ELQ back (understandably so) it is her legacy, all she has left of
Edward… With Jason & Michael by her side the possibilities R endless. Plus
Hayden wanting to extract her fair share of revenge on Nick for having her shot..
He’s up against a formidable duo. The only crux in this plan would be Hayden’s
growing feelings for him. These two women would make a perfect Mother-Daughter
team. Great,Great, thought Timmm.

Could Hayden be Paul’s daughter from his first marriage? Do you think Hayden is a double agent?

Fanny
Guest

I wouldn’t rule anything out at this time, we know nothing of Hayden’s
past…except for how she makes her money.. How did Rick come across
Hayden ? Who was Paul married to before Tracy? If she is a double
agent & their daughter …then she’s working for Mommy & Daddy !!!

@CeeCee Sweetness… Lets just say Tracy has mellowed out with age.
She’s always been quick, witty, intelligent, hardcore, a formidable opponent.
She was a hell raiser in her day…Men have been her down fall, mostly bad
choices “she never saw them coming” after her prestigious name, money &
Co.

Maybe, Mel. But, how do you build a life based on lies and deceit? It never works. Then again, it’s a soap. Sometimes I forget that. Lol.

Yeah CeeCee that would be hard to build on lies and deceit but which would be worse, living with someones who lies or someone who pays to have your only child kidnapped. Maybe they should pair him with someone completely different. But, like you said it is a soap.

You’re quite welcome, Lou……it was my pleasure! I’ve often written posts singing the praises of Kathleen Gati and her Dr. O.! As far as I’m concerned, Liesl Obrecht was one of the few truly creative characters and bright spots of the Cartini era.

Hey, Mel. Thanks for replying. I am not sure who kidnapped whom? I am not too keen on GH…not too familiar with the characters’ backgrounds. I have been monotonizing this litany forever; that is, leave Jason be and do not attach him to anyone. I am not a fan of Sam’s, albeit I have seen a tiny spark of ‘spunk’ from her lately. If one can call it that. Liz, I loved; until the writers decided to drag her down the deep end. I’d like to know if there’s a moral to this story. Soap storytelling has taken a senseless… Read more »

Me again. I guess the kidnapping happened too long ago to be important now. I am just an old fan who watched Jason and Liz from the beginning and always wanted them to be together. Sam and Liz also have a long history of being jealous of each other and not being so nice about it. I don’t dislike Sam. Liz has just always been one of my favorites. I don’t like what the writers have done to her either. I hope that they really can redeem her. But hey, if Luke can rape and Sonny can murder and fans… Read more »

@Mel.
Never would I call you crazy for liking a character who happens to be a persona non grata, at the moment. As yourself, I can’t stand Sonny, but many love him; gun in hand and all. Lol.
I despise what Liz is doing, Mel; but I adore and admire the actress. She is so good; so convincing….if she were not, then we would not dislike her so much. I would consider Rebecca an accomplished actress. I cannot say the same for Kelly. Later.

GH made a very, very good jump-especially for a soap that was in 4th place! Before they released all of the ratings & NBC was bragging about how well DAYS did here, they mentioned GH had an 8.8 vs DAYS 8.7 & B&B 8.6 in Women 18-49. That puts GH at #2 in that demo, jumping from dead last #4 the previous week. I knew then the ratings was going to go up quite a bit. I just hope it sticks. I liked the reveal personally. I especially liked how Jason had his back turned to Lizzie several minutes when… 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 . #❤️ #😘”
