During the abridged Thanksgiving holiday week of soap viewing, November 23rd through the 27th,  only 3 new episodes could count in the ratings (Mon-Wed) as the rest of the week were repeats or pre-emptions. In the end, it was ABC’s General Hospital and NBC’s Days of our Lives that were the two soaps showing gains!

The CBS soaps of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful showed some losses.  (NOTE: The total audience count for the Tuesday, November 24th episode for Y&R is missing, according to the latest stats from SON)

With a solid week led by more of the fallout of the Jason (Billy Miller) reveal and a Quartermaine Thanksgiving among other moments, General Hospital actually got back to third place in total viewers just slightly over Days of our Lives!  GH added the most viewers for the week of any soap at +154,000. They also showed the most gains in the key womens 18-49 demo and women 25-54.   GH tallied in at an average of 2,822,000 for the week.

Meanwhile, DAYS was playing out the aftermath of the sudden death of Bo Brady and the Bradys first Thanksgiving without him.  DAYS added +132,00 viewers for the week – making their total viewer count to 2,813,000.  In addition, the NBC soap that just turned 50, scored best in women 18-34 more than any other soap, and added viewers in the key 18-49 and 25-54 categories.

The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful while even losing some  viewers for the week, are stil firmly in the number one and number two positions.  However,  B&B tied for a new low for the second week straight in the ratings share in the women 18-49 demo.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,796,000 (-98,000/+198,000)
2. B&B 3,508,000 (-10,000/-89,000)
3. GH 2,822,000 (+154,000/-161,000)
4. DAYS 2,813,000 (+126,000/+385,000)

So, what did you think of the performance of your favorite soap during the shortened holiday week?  Was General Hospital the best show? Was it Days of our Lives?  Did you feel that Y&R and B&B delivered the goodsm and you thus would have expected viewers being added to the positive side of the number count?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

That is what I recently said, as well. We have this forum to voice opinions but in the end, I for one am happy that all four shows are still televised. I respect all the talented actors.

A little off topic, but I found People Magazine’s GH 50th Anniversary issue from 2013 at my local Dollar store today. I have to think some of you already have it, but OMGoodness it’s got incredible pictures of all of our favorites. For those commenters who think some of us are stuck in the past and miss our legacy characters, reading this mag makes me remember why it’s hard to let them go, and see them relegated to cameo appearances if they are still around. It even makes you love the younger Luke after having gone through the Fluke thing.… Read more »

On Y&R, the surprise witness reveal did not absolve Adam 100% in the death of Delia. For court, I actually believed that someone else would be implicated in order for Adam to gain his freedom. But that is the way the cookie crumbles in the soap world. In reality, a real court would not look beyond the removal of the handcuffs at the hospital to overturn a sentence. Probation. Community Service. What? Christine will not file an appeal! What? No court ordered restitution! What? No wrongful death civil lawsuit! Wouldn’t a federal agency (FBI) be called in to handle cyber-attacks?

DAYS and GH are my two! I really don’t know which one I prefer right now. It’s great to see DAYS be in second place in the key demo group 18-49!

Days and GH both need to pick it up. Both shows are seriously just treading water. There’s nothing truly horrific airing in either right now but nothing that is all that exciting either. The Bo story hijacked the show for weeks which has resulted in everything else just hitting the skids. The Ben storyline is dragging out way too long — start killing again, starting with several of the SORAS’d kids. GH needs to give Laura a story besides doling out motherly advice. Find her a man. And let’s wrap the Patrick/Robin story and send them off together with their… Read more »

I have to agree with you on Ben/Abigail; time in Salem is moving at record speed and they are still locked in that cabin? Thank god, looks like next week we may see some movement there.
Bored with Liz. Don’t understand why Laura is keeping this secret?! If she’s so worried it will be found out, why doesn’t she just divulge what she knows? lame!
Ciara and her grating voice ……. is very ffwdable!

I agree, Ces. I try, but I cannot find anything relatable with Ciara. At least, not emotionally. Her eyes and voice belie her words.
Liz needs to take a long, refreshing nap. And then, miraculously she’ll wake up an honest person, decked in morals galore. Ha!

Ces
Guest
Ces

lol! I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of Ciara on our screen unfortunately. Also, grates on my nerves when Hope screams Ciarrrrrra — annoying. Hate rapid growth on soaps; I’ll add that I don’t like Chase either. Hope he goes the say way Silas’ nephew left on GH, remember him? I can’t even remember his name but I did not like him.

CeeCee

Hello, Ces.
Silas’s nephew’s name was Rafe Kovich. Funny you should say that because he wasn’t liked by many, or so it seemed. Yet, when he was killed off, everyone Oooohed and awwwwed about it. I wasn’t a fan either.
I agree, Chase does grate….but, I do like Theo. Kyler Pettis plays the teen with mild autism to the letter. He’s also a looker.
Hope? Thorn on my side…..for the longest time. Now, I have two thorns. Wow!! Mother and daughter are killing me.

Ces
Guest
Ces

Ah yes, Rafe. I never liked that character or the actor. I definitely wasn’t sad when they did him in.
Although Kristian has done a great job with the work on Bo’s death, I did love her more back in the 80’s and 90’s; she looks hard now in appearance and comes off that way too. I think it all started with the Princess Gina stuff that I didn’t care for. Ciara can go!!

When it comes to ratings; 30-DAY RATINGS Where you’ll see them: It’s important to know that the networks are the ones putting these 30-day ratings reports together, not Nielsen. They’re using the Nielsen-provided data and their own internal data about multiplatform or encores, which could, in theory, be manipulated in a 100 different ways. Some of the networks even tabulate their 30-day ratings differently, so there’s no consistent way to make one-to-one comparisons. ratings don’t actually measure DVR viewership between days 8 and 30 of a given 30-day period. Meaning that even if you’re a Nielsen home, if you’re way… Read more »

0ohh and Get this-

Y&R has a full-time publicist, plus the backing of CBS Daytime’s social media and Sony promotional team domestic and international publicists.

B&B has both domestic and international publicists !!!

Days of Our Lives has a publicists and other media promotion..

General Hospital has a freelancer on Twitter and
Frank has to promote GH on twitter..

Sony does not own Bold and Beautiful.

Well, of course these shows should have publicists. The fact that GH doesn’t is just weird. It’s not that the other shows are doing wrong or cheating by promoting themselves, Su. Sounds like that’s what you’re getting at.

hi Dylan..
Thanks for B&B correct..
Promotion is key in media, and GH has none 🙁
If ABC would find a spot on one of their extensions to air GH at night, I think that would help..
I just would like more being done to save our precious soaps /GH <– 🙂

ABC Disney has enough outlets to air GH at night if it wanted to. It seems like they want it too fail. They own ed Soapnet for years and ran they ran GH, OLTL and AMC marathons on weekends. when OLTL and AMC were first cancelled they picked DOOLs for a while. They also ran reruns of Melrose and 90210. Then the ABC/Disney just dropped the network. I am sure this was just a tactic to get people to either pay Hulu to watch GH or justify canceling it.

Thats a good point, why cant ABC Family show GH at night? Plus Disney is so powerful, if they believed in GH it would get more publicity and a bigger financial push. I see ALL the networks televise some of the crappiest shows EVER! Well, they are dirt cheap to air but it doesnt make it right!

Kevin Spirtas Talks ‘After Forever’s’ Digital Special ‘Riley’s Unforgettable School Project’, The Loss of Michael Slade, and a Chance to Reprise DAYS Craig Wesley

The coronavirus pandemic has put to the test many content creators on just how they would keep their projects moving forward in ways they never dreamed of. However, out of that situation has come some of the most compelling, unique series, specials, and features currently streaming for viewers. One of which is Riley’s Unforgettable School Project, brought to you by the team from the six-time Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, After Forever.

Former Days of our Lives star, Kevin Spirtas (Ex-Craig Wesley) has starred in and created the first two seasons of what has become the most honored Emmy-awarded LGBTQ-themed drama series on any platform.  Along with his ‘After Forever’ writing/producing partner, the late Michael Slade (DAYS, OLTL, Passions, Another World), the two also conceptualized and delivered this latest documentary-style offering now on Amazon Prime Video.

What makes Riley’s Unforgettable School Project so noteworthy is not just how they were able to execute the series based on fictional 11-year-old Riley’s virtual school project and utilize its cast, which includes: Spirtas, Cady Huffman, Jamison Stern, Lenny Wolpe, Erin Cherry, Anita Gillette, Christopher J. Hanke, and Finn Douglas, but that it was made while Slade was succumbing to his battle with cancer, and that this special marks the final script from this talented writer.

 

Michael Fairman TV spoke with Spirtas about making the special during Covid-19, how the death of Michael Slade has made a lasting impact on his life, what After Forever has personally meant to him, and how an official third season is still in the works, and … if he would consider a return to Salem and Days of our Lives, should they come a-calling.  Here’s what Kevin had to say about it all.

Photo: AfterForever

I think the entire story of this digital special has become even more meaningful with Michael Slade’s passing. What was the genesis of the concept? You wanted to continue the telling of the story of After Forever … but we are all in the middle of a pandemic?

KEVIN:  Yes and… when we filmed season 2, we had the scripts for season 3 already completed. It was our hope and desire to film them at the same time, back-to-back, so that we would have had all of our cast and crew together, and we could have gotten through it because we’ve always imagined this story being told in a trilogy so to speak – a beginning, middle, and end to Brian (Spirtas) and Jason, (Mitchell Anderson) and Brian’s healing or his steps towards healing through grief.  Schedules turned out that they couldn’t really work out for us to hold all the people and hold all of the sets for that amount of time.  So, we thought, “We’ve got the scripts for season 3 ready.  We’ll come back to it in the following year,” and that was always the intention, and then the pandemic hit.  So, it was shut down immediately that we weren’t going to do anything, but we wanted to stay current, and instead of going back in and telling the third installment of After Forever as a Covid-19 story as well, Michael and I sat down and looked at a way of staying relevant and current with a story within COVID, and there was born the idea to do this documentary style story/special about the characters of After Forever told through the lens of the character of Riley, the 11-year-old boy, who is now being homeschooled during the pandemic. He gets an assignment to do a project about the most unforgettable person he has ever met, and he, of course, chooses his best friend, the late Jason Adams, and he enlists all of Jason’s friends and family to join in.  Michael actually said, “What if we tell a story about Riley being homeschooled?” And, not only is Riley a technical genius at 11-years-old in the story, but Finn Douglas, who plays Riley, is a technical genius.

And didn’t Finn perform and write the song “Forever There” contained within the special?

KEVIN. Yes. He is this incredible musician.  Michael thought, “What would it be like if we asked to have the character of Finn sing a song for Jason?”  I said, “Well, what kind of song would we have him sing?”  Finn could play anything, I’m sure, because he’s self-taught, he plays by ear – guitar, piano, and drums.  Michael said, “What if we ask him to see if he could write a song?” and when we heard this song, we all called each other and we all got on Zoom and went, “Can you believe this song?  Can you believe this came out of this 11-year-old?”  It’s pretty incredible.  Michael did a gorgeous job of weaving the stories in and out and how they just sort of dove-tailed into each other, and then it was framed by Riley opening the project and ending the project.  During the Zoom reading we wanted to hear the song out loud.  We said to Finn, “Would you want to sing the song?”  We all just watched everybody on that Zoom call just fall apart.  It was just so beautiful. He’s an amazing talent.

Where is your character within this?

KEVIN:  I still stand in the center of the story of Jason because my character, Brian, was married to Jason, and it sort of connects us all, and through Riley’s understanding of how we all connect to Jason, is how we are all sort of spread out throughout the story.  Michael jokingly said, “You know, you’re not going to be the star of this special,” and I said, “I don’t think it’s about being the star.  It’s really about the storytelling.”  The beauty of Riley’s Unforgettable School Project is that we get to see moments of each person’s relationship with Jason, which Riley sets out to say, “Answer these three questions: What did you like most about Jason?  What did you like least about Jason? And what’s your favorite memory?”  Those three things, cut back and forth is where we all kind of fit in.  Nobody has more of a story than the next person, and it’s all telling honest portrayals of how they’re dealing with their loss of their good friend, or their child, or partner.

It’s a very inventive idea during Covid-19 to continue it in a way where you weren’t having to go shoot a full season of episodes.

KEVIN:  Well, we couldn’t. I have to say, Allison Vanore, who not only produced this special, but she also stepped up saying, “I’d love to direct this,” and I said, “Yes, please!”  She knows the characters.  She understands the story because she’s been a part of it for the last two seasons.  Allison also has this extraordinary amount of knowledge and expertise with the camera and what was needed for a remote shoot, and to also be able to organize filming 13 people in 2 different countries and 5 different cities… that’s just the technical side of it, but having that in our back pocket, knowing that it was a remote shoot, we had to send the camera, the computer, the ring light, and the microphone to each person’s house.  We had to location scout over Zoom.  We had to do wardrobe over Zoom.  It was all this big puzzle putting it together, and once you look at that board of storytelling and how we were going to do it, it kind of fell into place.  I feel blessed that a) we still had Michael with us, at that point, and b) Allison had the know-how to do this.  We all feel that at least this pandemic didn’t keep us from doing what we love.

Photo: AfterForever

In terms of the contribution of Michael Slade in this special, was it the construction of the story, and how was he able to work and write this during his illness?

KEVIN:  Michael’s contribution to the special was no less than the contribution to season 1 and season 2, and the future of season 3, because the scripts are written.  We did everything on Zoom, and we worked around his schedule of treatment.  We scheduled 2 people per day, and we spread them out over two weeks.  He was very present, and when there would be a day where he would say, “I’m going to be an hour late, let’s just push that call time,” I would ask, “Is this too much right now?  We can shelve it; we can stop it.” He’d then say, “Absolutely not, otherwise cancer will win.”  He was determined to stay focused and to stay active because it took his mind off of what was happening to him.

Photo: AfterForever

It would be lovely moment if you both were to win a Daytime Emmy for this project. 

KEVIN:  It’s our last collaboration together as a team, as I said, season 3 has been scripted, and it is on the calendar to get made.  We are just waiting for the COVID restrictions to lift a little bit and everyone to get vaccinated.  Michael was really hit hard with cancer – to stay healthy was so challenging for him.  Sadly, he didn’t make it to see the final edit of the special, and he died four days before we launched, but he had seen the cuts before that and was very approving of it, and had made some decisions, and offered some suggestions, and if God gives him an Emmy for this, it’s not because he died.  It’s because it’s great work.  It just happens to be that the work that was involved in this particular special was very tricky.  It brought up everything, like life itself to have to deal with.  Here we are dealing with the loss of a colleague, the loss of a friend, someone’s brother, someone’s son, this is life imitating art, imitating art imitating life. I can’t tell you the darkness that I went through just experiencing the need to stay focused on getting everything edited, and everything ready, and everything aligned for a release of this project that we had put into motion.  On top of it, our editor lost his mother just before Michael passed, and Allison’s mom was sick at the time, as well.  It took a lot of heavy deep breaths with Michael’s death, and the pandemic, and the loss has, for me, on a personal level, sent me back to really questioning my spiritual muscle and to help remind me that we have to come out of this better than we went into this.  I had many dark nights of the soul this last year, and December was probably the darkest.  I feel like I’m just kind of coming out of it now with the spring revealing itself.

Photo: AfterForever

It must have been extraordinarily difficult for you to also go to New York during a pandemic and also knowing Michael did not have much time left.

KEVIN:  I will say this: I am grateful that I was able to stay in touch with my heart and my instinct and go out to New York to let that be my remote location.  Yes, maybe there was some risk involved.  I wore my mask; I was Covid-19 negative, and I was determined to be fine.  Once I got to New York, I would visit him very protectively with our masks and our gloves, and I’d sit across the room, and then I’d go back to the house I was at.  It was a gift that I was able to see him at that time.  We had some good talks then about how he was feeling, and I think he was still being optimistic, and then once we got the project in the can there was maybe this psychic letting go. That’s when everything really started to reveal itself as this could be the end.  I did go back to see him when he was in hospice.  I think I was there the last two days that he really was able to really stay coherent.  He would close his eyes and be at peace and quiet for a minute, and he would finish a conversation and sort of close his eyes, not to sleep and not to go away, but I remember watching him going, “Look how peaceful he is,” and then he’d open his eyes and he’d remember that he is in this body that has been given a time limit of life, and he’s on his way out.  I’d watch the fear go back in his eyes.  At one point, he did say, “I’m so scared,” and I just held his hand, and I said, “I’m scared too.  Let’s be scared through this together.”  I don’t know how to navigate grief like that.  We are all going to be in a position at some point where we are going to be on the other side of the hand holding.  The wonderful thing is that we were able to have honest communication about our feelings.  I thanked him for everything that he has done for me and how he believed in my talent and creativity and our partnership.  I will always take that with me.  I waved my finger at him, and I said, “Listen.  Now, we wrote a series about a man talking to his deceased husband.  You’d better talk to me!”  So, we laughed about that.

Photo: AfterForever

You’ve done a lot of things in your career from Broadway to television, and of course, daytime fans know you best as Dr. Craig Wesley on DAYS.  How does the entire After Forever project stack up to you within all that you have done?

KEVIN:  Former DAYS casting director Fran Bascom, sought me out and offered me this 2-day role on Days of Our Lives, and those 2 days turned into 8 years, and unbeknownst to me at the time, the final 3 months of that contract of those 8 years, Michael Slade was brought in to write.  We didn’t cross paths at that point, but years later, when we did cross paths in New York, and then After Forever was born, that was that universal crossing point.  I am most proud of the fact that we were able create something fresh, and real, and personal to ourselves that we didn’t have to cater to any “powers that be” that had their vision and their tinkering, that they thought that it could be better in this way or that way.  Then for After Forever to gain such recognition, within the film festivals, and the Emmys, and then, just after Michael died, we won the GLAAD award for Special Recognition this year.  We don’t even fit into one of their categories!  They found a way to acknowledge this project.  If another Emmy happens again, that might be another one to put up on the shelf for After Forever that would be beautiful, and I couldn’t have done it without Michael.

For the Daytime Emmys this year, what category have you entered Riley’s Unforgettable School Project?

KEVIN:  We are not a series this year, we are a daytime fiction special, and the “Daytime Fiction Special” category is a special class.  It’s anything that’s digital in the construct of less than 40 minutes.  NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is being bombarded with so much content, they’re trying to find ways to put categories together.

Photo: JPI

So, now, when we last saw Days of Lives’ Dr. Craig Wesley, where was he? (Laughs)

KEVIN: (Laughs) He was in a flash from the past or something in the DOOL app’s Last Blast Reunion series. I had a fun time working with Patrika Darbo (Nancy) and Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), once again.

So, if they were to want Craig to come back to DAYS, would you be all for it?

KEVIN:  Hell yes!

Photo: JPI

Now, what story would you want to be told involving Craig? 

KEVIN:  When Craig was first on the canvas in Salem, there was a lot of mustache twirling and a lot of hand wringing.  He was always plotting; most of the time with Nancy.  It was kind of this high drama, evil villain storyline being told, but when the writers created an opportunity for us to be on after those first three months by bringing on Chloe without a father, there was something real about it.  It may have been told under the construct of soap opera storytelling, but there was a reality-based story about, “You have a daughter, and we are just now finding out about it?”  Then, finding a cure to her health was another realistic story, and finding out that Craig was her real father.  Anything that’s reality based is what I’m getting to.  I would welcome any job that brings me back and gives me an opportunity to dive into something real.

Photo: JPI

Would you welcome the opportunity to play a gay character on daytime; in a medium where there are very few represented in storylines?

KEVIN:  I’d have no problem with that.  Do you know anybody who is starting that?  Let’s do it!  (Laughs) First of all, there’s nothing to hide anymore.  There’s nothing to pretend you’re not anymore.  I would think that bringing in a storyline that deals with anything outside the norm that we are used to seeing would be interesting.  How many times can you retell a story?  How many times can you set the same story up with another couple?  So, why not be diverse and have a stylized story being told through the lens of a gay person.

Photo: AfterForever

In closing, so many go through life without acknowledging people who had an impact them.  We don’t give pats on the back, often enough, and especially in Hollywood, where people can be very self-involved.  You have already paid tribute to Michael Slade in our discussion, but what gift from him is your personal takeaway?

KEVIN:  The gift that Michael really gave to me is to remember to be kind to myself and to others, and to acknowledge and salute the person who is in front of us, because we don’t know when we will have, or if we will have, another moment to do that.

Now below, check out the trailer for Riley’s Unforgettable School Project.  Then let us know, what do you think of its concept? Kevin’s thoughts on the passing of his collaborator on the project, Michael Slade? And, do you hope DAYS brings back Dr. Craig Wesley? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
