Leave it to soap stalwarts John McCook and Rena Sofer (Eric and Quinn) of The Bold and the Beautiful to generate some major numbers for the CBS Daytime drama in the latest ratings for the week of September 26-30th.

The fallout from Eric and Rena’s wedding and Eric landing in the hospital in critical condition helped B&B to almost 4 million total viewers for the week (3,913,000) while gaining viewers in all key womens demos 18-34, 18-49, and 25.54 with an increase in ratings shares, as well.

The only other daytime drama to gain viewers was NBC’s Days of our Lives which added +17,000 bringing its tally to 2,213,000.  The ongoing drama of the three super-villains reign of terror continuing to cause havoc for many  Salem favorites has shown a slight uptick.  DAYS also gained viewers in the 25-54 demo.

General Hospital, which featured the beginning of the end for Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi) being revealed to all as the hospital serial killer, saw the ABC daytime drama losing  -8,000, but GH still came in with 2,703,000 for the ratings week, and saw gains in the women 18-49 and 18-34 demos.  GH also tied an all-time low in 18-34 ratings share.

Finally, first place Y&R was the show with the most in the minus column for the week in question.  Y&R lost -98,000 total viewers bringing their average tally to 4,691,000. The soap tied an all-time low in 18-49 womens demo ratings share and lost viewers in that demo, as well.  However,Y&R saw an uptick in women 18-34.   View the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

DOOL gained..
”the ongoing drama of the three super-villains reign of terror continuing to cause havoc for many” is intriguing and drama, that’s what soaps are- drama.

General Hospital..
”which featured the beginning of the end for Paul being revealed to all as the hospital serial killer, saw the ABC daytime drama losing”
And Sonny ranting to God of his sins.. BLAH SNORE..
AND GH tied an All-Time Low in 18-34 ratings share.

note; the Serial Killer story is standing next to the Music Box story, both horrendously lacking drama and both total sleepers; can’t get any worse, or can it?…. yup..

I started watching B&B earlier this year. It is amazing how much a 30-minute show can fit into one episode. This show is on fire. Eric and Quinn needs to be a wake-up call for soap writers that people watching soaps are not interested in young actors that can’t act carrying their show. The storyline with Eric and Quinn was shocking at the beginning, but now it has so many layers it should have effect on all of the characters for months. I love it that Ridge, Steffi and Rick are now the villians. The problem with B&B is that… Read more »

I love Hollyoaks……wish we had soap writers that blended drama and comedy and aren’t afraid to “kill off” major characters….the Lindsey “gloved killer” storyline went on over a year and killed off a lot of characters….this is something that General Hospital could have done with Paul and he could have eliminated half the bloated cast…..i’m hoping that on Days, the 3 cra cra’s will really BLOW UP Salem and maybe then the show can redo the sets and bring them up to into 2016/2017….i’ve noticed that the writing has improved with Ryan Quan…..love Sonny and Paul…..and Sonny and Chad….and love… Read more »

No matter the ratings are up or down, the results remain the same with Y at 1, B at 2, G at 3, and D at 4,…on the plus side is the ratings seem healthy-for now!!!…

The soaps standing 1-2-3-4 will never change..
Why? Because–
the viewer/fans they have will maintain as are..
There will be No new watchers to mention.

Only bump the soaps will get is–
if one soap is canceled and its’ viewers migrate to other soaps.

What is will be …. GH will always be #3..
UNLESS it falls below Days and that is a possibility with J&S writing.

Bold and the Beautiful has been a must watch for me in the last two weeks! I was cheering at the tv screen when Eric was calling out each one of his family members!! The show deserves the ratings increase!

Just my thoughts on some of the ratings… GH…we are treated to three GRAPHIC killings, or attempted ones, this last period…Alexis getting her throat slit by Julian, Sabrina being strangled to death by Paul, and Tracey being held as “body armor” with his deadly syringe by Paul. And there was Monica, earlier Valrntine holding Laura at gunpoint on Cassadine Island, and even earlier, Kiki almost being held a hostage by Morgan with a shotgun in the cabin. An observation, all women. The men in the past mostly get shot. And right now we can’t blame Sonny and the rest of… Read more »

Dark Shadows and Edge Of Night had the most violence and killings of all soaps when i was growing up-however, it wasnt in-your-face graphic like todays serials like GH and Days-children could watch …both these serials used to be more like B&B and Y&R-about family issues, love and romance ect ect…now its all gloom and doom…no true heroes anymore…and like you i rarely watch the news-shooting kills dozens at club, stabbing at mall, shootings at mall and school, boyfriend fatally beats toddler to death, baby left to die in heated car, family bludgeoned to death, boy set ablaze by another… Read more »

I loved Dark Shadows as a kid. Yes they had killing and violence but it was not over done like the soaps today. And Dark Shadows dealt with family, the Collins, and the love story of Barnabas and Josette.

The Quinn Eric story is the best . This should show the other soaps we want to see less of the younger characters and give more to the vets, like Laura and Kevin.

Sorry but three super villains don’t hold a candle against one Dimera — Days lets get back to basics here. After a week of everyone abusing poor Quinn look forward to her turning the tables, but hopefully with a twist that when she is in power she will be far more gracious to Eric’s family than they were to her– I really am rooting that Quinn is growing as character– and they are transforming her in a complex person with layers instead of crazy Quinn Yes, I have to agree with Suooo, Jelly’s music box story on Y&R was their… Read more »

I did like Days story at first because it utilizes most of the cast but its just another violent story and i think its leading up to killing off Teressa which is another big mistake-boy do i miss Days 60s to the 80s years…the 80s werent the greatest time but it was far better than the 2000s ‘Mess Of Our Lives!’

Now that would be interesting…but doesn’t he beat out Sonny over in Port Charles for having the most kids???

That would be an interesting twist. But you have to figure the age factor of Quinn. In real life Rene Sofar is 47 years old. I don’t what age bracket she is in on the show, but for argument sake let’s put Liam in his mid to late twenties, and Quinn was19 or tweny at the time Wyatt was born. That would put Quinn at around 44 or 45 if I am doing the math correctly. It would be cutting things a little close, but it might be doable. That would definitely turn a few heads. Steffie being a neice… Read more »

Y&R is a complete bore. Not a single story worth my time. Phelps & Pratt have made it a total mess. The Christian/Sully reveal has drug on so long that both of the kid’s real parents are dead. Great writing….NOT.

I was thinking the same thing. And how close are Nick and Chelsea going to stay when he finds out that Chelsea knew the whole time that Adam was the father. This uselessness has the potential of dragging on for a while. For the sake and stability of the baby, they should just let sleeping dogs lye, and let Sharon keep the baby. Although now that the character of Dyan is leaving (please no more recasts) whose to say how this will play out

It’s Eric and Quinn’s wedding, not Eric and Rena’s. I really like Eric and Quinn together and the story has been great. It’s wonderful to have Eric in a story. I hope Wyatt tells Quinn about the power of attorney. Glad Days is improving. It has been better. I also hope the success of B&B showcasing Eric and Quinn shows that viewers enjoy seeing more mature, shall we say, characters and actors. We want competent actors telling good story. Days will improve more if they recognize this and recast some of the teens and also refocus onto other characters. I… Read more »

Days may be up from previous week +17,000 which is good that it is up, but down -283,000 from last year and only soap that is. That is important to take note as I can’t imagine sponsors would be thrilled about that. With that said, love my Days cast want them to stay on, but would like to see a different type of storyline. I do put the show on for a few minutes to check to see what is happening, but do not seem to stay with it long because I like a different type of escapist entertainment. With… Read more »

I was surprised by the turn and awfull decisions of Ridge & Steffy. It has shown just how greedy and egomanical they have become. When a character becomes this evil though, it makes it easier to get continue watching them. I certainly hope they turn a page. However, past events have shown Ridge is selfish to any end and Steffy will remove anyone to the point of murder who cares for someone she no longer wants. What is troubling is she does the greatest evil EVEN if she doesn’t want that man. Look at what she tried to do to… Read more »

I love this storyline with Eric and Quinn ( In Love) What I really don’t like is Spoiled Steffi and her Dad Ridge.. they are totally disgusting. Would love to see Wyatt see what a idiot he’s been for those two Losers.. Ridge ruins the whole show in my opinion..

Oh, Jelly, you really know how to raise those female demos (lmao!). You have a talented, handsome actor in Richard Burgi, and what do you do?! You turn his character into a delusional serial killer, making it necessary to write him off the show. And all for a poorly written storyline yet. What a foolish waste. But wait! At least we still have that smarmy hypocrite Sonny and his God complex to keep us riveted to our screens (UGH). What’s it going to take for ABC to realize what a terrible mistake they made renewing these two insipid “writers”?

I am loving B&B mainly due to the wonderful pairing of Eric and Quinn. The other SLs were getting so boring. Y&R has been boring and disgusting for too long, thanks to Billy and Phylliss.

I hope Jack is on to something good! He should disown Billy and no way should he let Phyllis near Jabot! He gives her a supply closet office which is funny but she or anyone else can walk into Jack’s office and look at anything on his laptop. Really? I hope these two are done for good! Jack needs to date Avery! New writing is near, Dylan is leaving and Summer is supposed to be recurring. Get her out and bring back Daniel. GH is a snooze. They resigned all three of their problems and the show is unwatchable. Griff… 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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: BlueAeris

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
