Days Of Our Lives

RATINGS: Great week for DAYS as show reveals its reboot!

Days of our Lives was the big winner in the ratings for the week of September 26th through September 30th, and that is because, as many know and had been well planned, the show did its reboot that week, bringing with it staple stars, Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Matthews Ashford, Christie Clark and Patrick Muldoon.

DAYS increased its viewership + 260,000 eyeballs and that is also over last year at this same time.  DAYS also had increases for key demos during the week as well.

The only other show to garner more viewers that week was General Hospital who added +55,000 viewers. And the top three remained  1) The Young and the Restless 2) The Bold and the Beautiful 3) One Life to Live.

Also of note, this was the first week that All My Children did not appear in the ratings. Sadly, the ratings sheet looks more empty with only five soaps left at this time.  Who would have ever thought we would see that day?  View the full ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network after the jump!

Great for Days! They deserved it! Bringing back old faves, great balance, great stories, great mysteries, pulling out all the stops!
Hope Y&R learns from this!

Glad to hear of Days’ ratings success! I am one of those viewers who tuned back in after years of not watching so I could see my faves Marlena, Carrie, Austin, John and Jack again. So far, I’m liking what I’m seeing, but I have to admit I don’t really like this cast outside of the returning characters and Bo, Hope, Jennifer, Kate, Stefano and Victor.

I love them all and hope Bryan Dattilo/Lucas Horton comes home to Salem to stay forever.

Totally agree!!!

OLTL lost its momentum. Victor being shot left for a so-so who dun-nit. It has been pretty boring all week. Let’s move story along…..who is in the hospital bed, who killed Victor, let Nat find out Brody knew about the paternity, let Jack go to juvenille detention, etc. I fast forwarded through much of the last 2 weeks. I haven’t done that in a long time.

Yeah, I continue to watch, but these last two weeks have been agonizing…. We all know that Shane is the one who took out Victor. Stacy is in the bed, but she’s had her face re-done to look like Gigi (no secret, I’ve just put the pieces together) And for God’s sake will someone please tell John that he’s Liam’s father!!! Out of all the stories, that is the one that is getting on my nerves the most. This is the one major issue that I have with soaps…..they drag some stories on for a life time. The DNA baby story has outlived it’s expiration date. It’s so time for the truth the come out. I mean, has anyone else noticed how Natalie doesn’t even try to remember what happened on that rooftop between her and Marty? And I’m sick of Brody and this self-entitled attitude he has about being Liam’s father Oh, and how many times is Blair gonna scream from fright thinking that Todd has slipped off and died? Get the stupid man to the hospital, and hurry up and wrap this story up….Notice how Todd could care less about the trouble he has gotten his daughter in? Thought he was supposed to care so much about his kids…..

Oh, and I must say, it was a little strange to look at the ratings and not see AMC listed there any longer….very sad. 🙁

WATCH: ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Cold Open: ‘Days of our Impeachment’

In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

In the SNL cold open; Mad Men alum Jon Hamm took on the role of  former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor.  Kate McKinnon reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, while Heidi Gardner played a fainting soapy impeachment hearing attendee.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
