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. 🙁


yep the show needs Bryan Dattilo/Lucas Horton and now that
Farah Fath is out at OLTL,I think Days exMimi and Lucas would be great together,they could have meet why his been in Hong Kong and now they are coming home to Salem.

Some good news for Days. Glad it got a bump. It’s doing much better with the new stories I’m looking forward to watching every day.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Return to Days of our Lives to Celebrate Abe and Paulina’s Juneteenth Wedding Anniversary and a ‘Going Away’ Party

There are several reasons that Days of our Lives favorites Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani) are making a return on the Wednesday, June 19th episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera.

First, Lani and Eli come back to Salem to celebrate the wedding anniversary of Abe (James Reynolds) and Paulina (Jackee Harry), which happened on Juneteenth Day which is on June 19th.

Juneteenth, which is a Federal holiday, is an annual commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States after the Civil War, has been celebrated by African Americans since the late 1800s.

Meanwhile, the return also serves as a “apparent” send-off for Johnny (Carson Boatman) and Chanel (Raven Bowens), who are set to depart Salem, since Johnny landed his dream job in California.

Look like Elani is also attending their going away party, but are the departing couple (with Chanel being pregnant) really going to leave Salem? Stay tuned.

Stowers made her first Days of our Lives appearance back in September of 2015. Lani is the adoptive daughter of Abe and the biological daughter of Paulina. As for Archey, he arrived on the scene in 2017 as Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) grandson. Sal and Lamon were last seen on-screen in March of this year.

Looking forward to seeing Eli and Lani back on DAYS? Do you think Johnny and Chanel are exiting the Salem canvas? Comment below.
