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 »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
