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!

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.

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… Read more »

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
