RATINGS: GH Only Soap To Show Gains! DAYS Hits New Lows in Key Female Demo!

courtesy/ABC

The ratings are out for the week of July 9-13th and there was some good news to report for General Hospital!  The lone ABC soap was the only daytime drama to add total viewers for the week adding +76,000 eyeballs.

However, Days of our Lives did not have a good week.  Not only did it lose the most viewers -176,000 of all the network soaps, but it hit all-time lows in the key women 18-49 demo in both total viewers and ratings share.  The Olympics can not come too soon for the NBC sudser, and with the big cliffhanger, some time off, and the episodes from new head writers, Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell about to take front and center stage, the soap is hoping for a boost come mid-August.

The CBS soaps; the number one The Young and the Restless, and the number two, The Bold and the Beautiful also dipped in viewers, but remained steady in their slots.  You can view all the ratings via Soap Opera Network here!Time to play armchair programming exec quarterback, soapers!  Tell us what it is working on your favorite soaps and what is not.   What would you change, and what would you do to increase the ratings for all four shows?

I hope the DAYSaster story brings and keeps new viewers. As a longtime viewer, I am holding out hope that the writers restore a little bit of balance to the show. It’s been heavy with a select few characters for awhile now, and although I know we fans all have our favorites that we’d like to see everyday (mine being John and Marlena), I think variety and balance might help retain viewership.

If TIIC had left OLTL alone, they would be doing great right now. OLTL was their top-rated soap. Dumb move, ABC.

Dear Paul (lee)

first i want to say i watch all four remaining soaps – the story line i am must disgusted with is the awful triangle between steffy/liam/hope on b&b – it has just been going on forever & it is so tired & boring……………..
i have watched gh since 1963 & i am so glad it is doing so well…….i really want to see gh be the #1 soap!

susan M.
susan M.

What about OLTL did you like this soap also???? This was my #1 soap & still is…Gh is my 2nd favorite soap………….

GH HAS been working out okay for me lately. Anna as the new PCPD commissioner is working out great. Significantly brought up the IQ factor of the office. Patrick’s struggle with addiction is riveting. As well as the unlikely aspect of Lulu helping him as a friend who had experience dealing with a loved one in the same trap. Love her new maturity and real portrayal of a marriage by her and Dante. Another of my favorite characters. Loved GH pairing him & Anna as cool investigators. Loved Luke showing more care for his cupcake as a father. I liked Jasam until the freaking where’s-the-baby SL. The length of time its taking for that makes my eyebrows twitch in annoyance.But gotta say Todd Manning is a howl factor that I really enjoy. Also NOT working for me is the amount/type of things Mad Hatter Heather is allowed to get awaywith. Stretches the belief factor. Todd should be picking his teeth with herfor crissakes. So far Michael and Starr are okay.

TS

I am really liking the crazy Heather..I hope they keep her on for awhile. .I am afraid she will be gone soon.. I hope not!! Now there is going to be another mystery with Patrick finding his wife.. Loved the clue… good surprise for the viewers.. …

Days will have one last chance with these new writers.. or I am out.. My time is not worth this soap and I need to find better use with my time than to watch the poor writing… I understand why they are losing viewers..maybe revolution could be picked up on NBC in the Days time slot… 25 years of watching Days.. might be time for something else

YEAH GH! I’m currently enjoying all 4 daytime dramas, so I’m not sure why the numbers are down. Perhaps the holiday? Anyway, GO SOAPS!

Patrick
Patrick

You should share with us, fans, from a fan perspective…. since, you watch all 4 dramas… what your ratings would be like.

i’m able to watch, DAYS & GH…. I left Y&R about 2 years ago… and surprisingly, i don’t miss Y&R. I champion for DAYS. couldn’t not watch my favorite DOOL. as for B&B… I think in my mind… that 1/2 hour went by too fast. how i kept up with all, was by reading the soap digest mag… at the grocery and local drug stores.

i’ve posted before… mine, would be 1. GH
2. DAYS
3. B&B
5.Y&R

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

My ranking would be
1. GH
2. DOOL
3. YR
4. BB

I only started watching B&B after OLTL was cancelled. It took awhile for me to get into it because I think it skews a little young for me. They harped on the Hope/Liam/Steffi triangle too much, but I’m starting to enjoy it more now. Y&R was a real snoozefest for awhile, but it’s picked up again in the last few weeks. I think DOOL has been really good lately, but GH is my fave.

Excellent for General Hospital my fave (and only daytime) show. The creativity of the off camera crew is showing through to the actors and their characters. Love the chances the writers are taking.

Hope
Hope

On General Hospital… More vets FRONT AND CENTER in the storylines…we want to see GH characters that we care about and have invested time in. Also very important is honoring the history of those legacy characters. We’ve been watching for years, you can’t fool us with bogus history and characters that don’t resemble the ones we know and love. If that is done, we may be more likely to accept OLTL/new characters and watch on a daily basis. Finally, BRING BACK ROBERT SCORPIO and reunite him with Anna and Robin. Honor his character and the history between them all. NO GUZA SCORPIOS! I’d also love to have Frisco return…and Sean Donely while you’re at it! Finally…I want to escape when I watch GH. Bring back love and romance. BTW…I am in a key demographic. I started watching when I was 10. FV and RC…are you listening??? I do want to thank tptb for bringing back Finola Hughes and putting her on contract. She’s the best part of the show for me.

Violet

Ditto everything you just said, Hope! And because I love him so much, I’ll add an extra “Bring Back Tristan Rogers” to your comments!

BOnnie

totally agree with you! Love the threesome with Luke and Tracy, the sadness that Anna and Patrick have endured. When Faison comes back…who knows what will happen!

Hope
Hope

I would LOVE it if Faison came back! I wish they would also do a better job of explaining why Robert/Anna stayed away from each other and Robin for so long. They need to undo the Guza Scorpio damage and have an explanation in keeping with their history and characters. I wish they would bring Sri Rao (Night Shift writer) in to to write for the Scorpios/other legacy characters. He has such a great understanding of Scorpio history and he watched back in the day! No offense to RC, but his heart obviously lies with OLTL…which I can understand. How about some TEAM WRITING! SR/RC! Then everybody would be happy! A girl can dream, right! 😉

GH is better than ever! Love the old faves like Anna, Luke and Tracy and love OLTL characters mixing it up..Todd is just awesome..comic relief that the show needed. Love Michael with Starr! Ron and Frank have worked their magic as always! Been watching since I was a kid over thirty years and GH is feeling like it did years ago..every single episode is awesome!

I really like crazy Heather causing havoc and the scenes with her and Todd.I would love to see that “friendship” to continue.I hope they keep Heather around long term so she can continue to keep things exciting !! I think spoilers are a big part of the declining ratings for soaps,Before the internet you had to turn in every day to see whay happened next,now you can find out how everything is going to turn out days before it airs–also you know far in advance who’s coming and leaving the show.I think if less info was given before hand,ratings would increase.

Gang, DAYS is in SERIOUS trouble. I’ve seen the promo for the cliffhanger…and DAYSaster? Really? I want them to make it on general principle, but they MUST do better than this.

GH-Scoff all you want, but ratings have been more up than down since Cartini took over, and displaced DAYS fans, we’ll be glad to have you in with us during the Olympic break…

Ever since Frank and Ron came from OLTL, GH is the best its been in years! Love the cross over characters from OLTL which was my favorite soap and wish they would bring it back! Have been watching since I was 13 I am now 57! Also please Frank and Ron give us back our favorite #1 soap couple Todd & Blair! PLEASE give Kassie a contract. They are so good together! Love those two together, we all know they belong together and you do too!

This goes to show that if OLTL were place rightfully back where it belongs that ABC could add to their gains. We just want our scripted drama back, I miss OLTL so much every weekday! I love GH and the OLTL characters that been mixed in, plus the writers making artwork out of it all. Absolutely genius!!

FV/RC are the best writing/EP team out there. Its too bad Frons canceled OLTL but hope this great team is appreciated at GH. Now if ABC would just run promos maybe they could get some of the old viewers back that Guza/Phelps ran off.

Stephen Parker
Stephen Parker

Carlivati and Valentini are geniuses. Plain and simple. Ron’s writing is head and shoulders above the entire TV fray. GH owes its resurgence to the dynamic team composed of the former OLTL writer and that show’s ex-producer. Bringing back classic characters to the GH storyline was a brilliant and successful strategy. It all goes to show that true storytelling produces sterling results. It also proves the fact that OLTL was murdered in cold blood.

I LOVE Days and have been a loyal viewer of my fave soap since I was a kid. However, I am very worried about the state of things in Salem. I have watched Days through its many ups and downs over the years; and I can’t, for the life of me, understand how the current writers have missed so many opportunities to portray dramatic conflict. Soaps, when they are done well, are all about conflict, emotions, beloved characters, and the “what will happen next factor?”. Days has just missed so many opportunities lately. Why didn’t Corday see that Carrie/Christie Clark is riveting and interesting to watch, and come up with some great plot revisiting Carrie and Sammi? Why do we have the inane, repetitive storyline with Brady and Madison and that old man that plays Madison’s ex? Sarah Brown is an excellent actress. Why don’t the writers utilize her? Why can’t Days separate John and Marlena, acknowledge that John is boring (sorry) and write a dramatic storyline that involves the talents of the legendary, still beautiful, Deidre Hall?? (btw, please stop Will from calling her “Grandma Marlena” ten times a week. Really, we know she’s he’s grandma. We know that Deidre Hall is now old enough to play a grandmother. But, enough already- Hall is riveting, and probably expensive to keep on contract. Why not USE HER??!!) Why do they keep the stocker/Gabby storyline going when it is just plain unbelievable, and lacking any emotional depth whatsoever? Also, that actress that plays Gabby is just plain terrible. (sorry) How did the casting director miss that? Why oh why do have they missed 101 possible story lines for Will that could shed some light on the coming out process, beyond the “I’m out, now I gotta blackmail E.J yet another time?” Why don’t the writers capitalize on the chemistry between Sammi and EJ and write something compelling, instead of repeating the same old dialogue and circumstances. And yes, we know they have “kids” together, but if I hear Sammi/Allison mention their “kids” in one more scene together, I’m gonna throw out my hourglass. And for God’s sakes, why did they ruin Rafe’s character by putting him in that nonsensical “relationship” with Carrie?? Rafe has always been a stand-up guy, and he simply would not go after his wife (or ex-wife’s) sister. The whole storyline seemed false from the moment it began, and Days is simply wasting Galen’s talent. Why are they pairing up Abigail and that really boring actor (sorry) while completely ignoring the talents of Jenn and Jack?? Why are they writing off Jack (AGAIN) before trying a new direction for his character? Why don’t they give Jen/Melissa Reeves a compelling, emotional storyline that utilizes her character?? Sorry, but I love Days. Every time I read a story on this website that mentions a dip in the ratings, I worry that Days may not make it to their next anniversary. Also, for the life of me, I do not understand… Read more »

I also wonder if the drops can be traced back to the loss of Soapnet in so many markets. For example, I hadn’t watched Days in many years, but was able to catch up on it in the evenings on Soapnet after OLTL was canceled. (At that point, I had some evening time I could replace OLTL with Days.) Then I would watch Days sometimes during the day when it aired if I had time because I knew what was currently going on with the characters. Now, my Soapnet is gone. I can’t watch Days in the evening so don’t have the momentum to watch during the day when I’m busy with other things and have lost track of current Days events. They lost me as a viewer, unfortunately.

I’m loving GH since Frank and Ron took over. I’ve been a GH fan for 18 years, so my loyalty is to GH first and foremost, and it always will be. But I’m happy with the way they’ve incorporated the OLTL characters into the show, and I think they’ve all fit in very nicely. Todd has quickly become one of my favorites. The guy is a hoot.

But I also didn’t want to see the show become OLTL 2.0 either. I know that’s what some people wanna see, but that wouldn’t be fair to the loyal GH fans. Frank and Ron have done a nice job coming up with a happy medium that should be able to please fans of BOTH shows.

They’ve brought in some OLTL characters, but also honored GH’s brilliant history by featuring legendary characters like Anna and Heather, rejuvenating a boring character like Kate and making her exciting again, and giving a great actor like Jason Thompson the best material of his career. The mob storylines have been put on the backburner, as well, which is also a big positive in my book.

They still have plenty of work to do, and the show isn’t perfect. But all the people that have tuned out for various reasons in recent years should give GH another chance.

Great news for GH, may the ratings continue to fly high! Bring back the Nurses Ball and it will be magical. I think Robin’s ghost, Heather’s shenigans helped!

Heather said yesterday to Anna that Robin is ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is she telling the truth or not??? Heather is twisted…………….

Heather is twisted, but cleaver, she knows what she is doing By telling Anna that Robin is alive, and It looks like she knows who has Robin, I keep hearing that Ewan is involved. Interesting.

The day that Days showed somone putting the gloves in back of the print in Ejays, Ian was in another scene talking to Kate… then days later they show a replay of that scene showing it is Ian… poor writing and editing by the show… mistakes like that should not happen…

Patrick
Patrick

my take on that was, they were just showing, the audience, the inevitable… that, we already, surmised…that it was Ian all along… course, it would seem, like Ian’s responsible for all the mayem… going on… ie: Brady’s being drugged, framing EJ… cause, Ian wanted Stefano’s empire…thru Kate. course, kate is “on” to him… becoming more suspicious… and now… John Black… finally, is being given some thing to do…

now, John, who is a “DiMera”… is going to contest Stefano’s will…. etc… and get, what is “rightfully” his share as well…. Marlena quipping… imagine, John… running the DiMera Empire….

doesn’t this all seem like a lot is happening to EJ… without “his” family, prior to the return of Kristen and Stefano? October 11, can’t come soon enuf for EJ… i thought, days, would wait… till both, kristen and Stefano… were back… to help EJ… fight it all out… with Salemites.

i say this, as well, cause, Lucas found the letter, Will put in the safe, that alice wrote to stefano, saying EJ is not his son…. i was hoping this would all come to light in october, when stefano, and kristen returned…. how will they play this out? i want EJ to be a DiMera.

This for Barabara t. Loves OLTL #1……….You were right about Ewan the shrink…He is behind everything to do about Robin….What is his motive???/ Why is he doing this????? He comes off as goody two shoes…But he isn’t…Heather was telling the truth to Anna today(thurs.) about Robin being alive..That she saw Robin in Ferncliff when she was there…Poor Robin got a shock treatment..Will she lose all her memories??? And what about Todd today seeing on his computer the confession of Johnny’s killing of Starr’s baby & husband… Oh BOY!!! EXCITING!!!

Sorry, I have been gone, never got any e mails from you, I was right about that Ewan guy now the big question is who does he work for and why did he choose to shock our poor Robin. Do you think Heather was telling the truth i have to hear more today It is getting very interesting, I hope Robin will be ok and she gets found SOON before they shock her again, I want to know who this enemy of Anna is. And it looks like Todd does know about Johnny shooting out those tires, If he did it maybe someone else did it and we are being lead to believe it was Johnny, Yes General hospital is getting good.

I saw in soap digest today it said Robin has a dangerous escape….What ever that means…I just read the cover in the supermarket..Didn’t buy it. Don’t know the rest of the story……Who is Ewan taking orders from when he was on the phone in ferncliff???? Anna is very determined and is going to austria..She found the pamphlet on the floor by robins bed…………….keep watchiin….Talk to you later…

This is not surprising. As far as I am concerned, ABC always had the best soaps. And I not just talking about GH, AMC and OLTL, but Dark Shadows, Ryan’s Hope, Edge of Night, Port Chuck (as I called it), etc. ABC would be riding very high if they had just left things alone and left the 3 super soaps continue. But no, they had an go mess things up, screw with the viewers, and now they are paying for it. I hardly watch ABC anymore, except for GH, and Castle (but its on summer hiatus). There was a time I would pretty much watch ABC all the time. But no more..

susan M.
susan M.

Watched Dark Shadows..It was a different kind of soap opera…Creepy but good at times…………………………………………………..I watch just GH on abc too……ABC is making themselves to be losers as far as daytime programming goes…A lot of shows no one will ever watch…Reality/info crap shows that don’t work on daytime programming… As we all well know………The soaps made so much money for ABC threw so many, many years ,why did they have to destroy it ? Doesn’t make any sense to me..I say why ruin a good thing if there are a lot of viewers enjoying their soaps & will continue to watch them always…They don’t know what they are doing that’s ovious…………………………………..

Days’ ratings took a dip Spring 2012 when couples were broken up. Marlene McPherson and D. Thomas, then head writers were made to take the fall for what may have been unwise decisions by NBC execs who interfered with Days writing. The gay Will Horton storyline was also a major reason for the dip in the ratings.

The Lexie illness/death storyline briefly elevated the ratings. But the couples who were broken up have not been reunited. Instead of new writers blowing up Salem, bring back Marlene McPherson and D. Thomas and let them write the stories they wanted to write in the first place. After the September 2011 Days reset, rating were increasing. Ratings even reached to coveted 2.0. Go back to what was started in September 2011 and thime time do it right. That will fix the show the right way.

Blowing up Salem is stupid and disrespectful of the hard work and imagination done by wiriters who were familiar with and respected the show’s history and tradition.

It was doctor kenan!!! Get out of here to me that means he works for Helena

kay/kay
kay/kay

I heard that they were leaning to it tying back to Anna years ago when she was being held in a cage, wasn’t that some crazy doctor who had an obsession with her? Anyway they may have decided to switch gears but I always knew this Dr. Keenan was no good he must have a connection with someone who hates Anna and maybe Robert you noticed she kept calling out for Patrick plus her mom & dad I hope this means my main man Robert Scorpio is coming back.

Christy

do you mean Grant Putnam? he tried to kidnap Robin and actually kidnapped Anna.

“In early 1988, Robin was kidnapped by the insane Grant Putnam. Grant even killed Filomena and kidnapped Anna, holding her in a cage inside his cottage where she was guarded by a Doberman named Satan.” but I can’t find out what happened to Grant when they rescued Anna… he was psycho. Did they put him in FernCliff or shoot him dead??

Christy
Christy

yeah – I just read that on Wikipedia! ha! well I was correct in thinking it was FernCliff and was thinking it was a doctor doing work for Helena… so I wonder if kenan has something to do with Helena besides being Cassandra’s dr. and renting Windemere a while back.

kathy M

who thinks johnny is going to sleep with the fishes???? You know Todd wants to kill him what can stop him??? And i was hoping that liz had a boyfriend for good….gee how can that be if he is evil, i guess sam and jason are over and done with well maybe jason and liz will decide to be together again. She needs a husband, so why dont they find her one! lol. As for other soap stars from our soaps that got canceled i am all for them appearing on GH till someone gets some balls and maybe writes a new soap with all them in it, its possible they could do that, if they put their minds to it! Keep the family lines how close was pine valley to port charles and landview??? Anyone that smart enough to know? If they near enough a disaster could strike one and them all come to live in a new town, it happens alot this day and age, and people move on, so why not?

REPLAY: Days of our Lives 53rd Anniversary Facebook Live Event From The Set: A Special Tribute, Preview Of The DOOL App & Fun Moments with the Cast!

It’s been a big week for Days of our Lives, culminating in Saturday’s annual Day of Days event with the fans and the cast in celebration of the long-running daytime dramas 53 years on the air!

Late last week, a fun and never-before-seen Facebook Live event kicked-off the last several days of fun, and was hosted on the NBC official Facebook for Days of our Lives.

It was during the live event that fans were treated to some behind the scenes access, and several previews of the new DOOL app that was also released on all mobile devices the day of the series anniversary on Thursday

During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Later, following John and Marlena’s nuptials on-air, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn along with Mary Beth Evans, James Reynolds, and host for the segment, Martha Madison, chatted about the long-awaited wedding for Jarlena fans.

Bill and Susan Hayes were on-hand to tell the audience all about the “Video Vault” section of the new DOOL app, where fans can find classic clips from DAYS history.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.
