The ratings are out for the week of July 25-29, 2011 and two shows showed strong gains compared with the rest of the pack and those are…drum roll please… One Life to Live and Days of our Lives!

First, let’s talk about the canceled One Life to Live who is holding again mighty strong in third place among all the daytime dramas.  During this ratings period, OLTL gained another + 33,000 more viewers for the week, and the show is up + 481,000 viewers over last year at this time! Take that decision makers at ABC!

Now on to Days of our Lives, which increased the most viewers last week with + 109, 000 viewers! It seems like Crystal Chappell’s performance as Carly’s drug addiction escalated, made viewers tune in!  So the question is now… can the venerable NBC soap opera make a big comeback?  We shall see once the new DAYS resets itself on September 26th.

I would love to see OLTL jump up to the number 2 spot and surpass B&B, just to slam dunk it in the faces of the execs at ABC…..I and I would just go crazy if we could somehow get it to the number 1 spot! LOL Come on OLTL fans, lets watch like we’ve never watched before…..encourage friends and family members to tune in and watch.

I don’t know why they don’t count Canada. I’m sure Y&R counts every country they can, since they’ve been number one so long. I mean don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Y&R from time to time, but OLTL is the all time best soap on television!! And it deserves to be in the number 1 spot. Not to mention it deserves to win Outstanding Drama over B&B, which has won two years in a row.

OLTL deserves to be number one.

DAYs deserves the cellar, it’s that bad. 🙁

Seriously, Crystal was phenomenal this week and it showed in the rating. They are probably going to ride her ratings wave until she’s gone and blame it on all the hype they are putting around the “reset”. Whatever, I am done come 9/22.

Yup, in the words of @mollydollyy, “@crystalchappell killin the game”! She OWNED last week on Days, especially on Tuesday. Stellar performance. All they had to do all this time was WRITE FOR HER. It’s a shame we won’t see that kind of work after 9/22.

It’s amazing what decent writing will do for a character and an actor. Thanks for confirming what Crystal Chappell’s fans have been trying to tell NBC for months!

Riveting performances, one after another, from Crystal Chappell, the past few days on DOOL. The thought of not seeing her brilliant acting on our TV screens (I’m so hoping it’s temporary) after 9/22/11, is so disappointing. I sincerely hope that another daytime show, or primetime, will sign her on, so that her incredible talent will not just be confined to the web.

I agree! If Days refuses to pay attention I hope the jump in the ratings is making other soaps take notice. We really need to keep this women in Daytime!… or Primetime. I’d take her there, too!

I be laughing if Crystal wins the emmy (through I doubt Erika does not have a lock for Viki’s 40th.)
OLTL Can sweep Show, Direrting, Writing, Lead Actor (Trevor, Roger, Robert, or Jerry), Supporting Actress (Bree for Jess ripping the neckless of or Nat), supporting actor JPL (through I understand Jackson is a lock for GH), Eddie for younger actor….Cystral can win actress….

Wow! ONE LIFE TO LIVE is slamming the ball right out of the park! Way to stick it to Disney and their cartoonish executive clan! I don’t know if #1 is possible, because that’d be about 1.5M more viewers, but maybe jumping to #2 overall? That would be an awesome way to leave abc in the dust. I’m hoping someone will take notice and Prospect Park will be able to find a new TV home for our show, which is undoubtedly the best soap on TV right now and perhaps one of the best soaps ever (in its current state).… Read more »

My guess is that TSJ is going to be Powell Lord (The Powell a couple of years ago was a fake from the “agency”). He is either Brianwash or has D.I.D. and really believe his is Todd.

Watch Days rating go thru the roof on Sept 26th. Instead of tuning in to AMC I will tune in to Days !!!! Me and the Millions of other AMC Fans. No way would I watch the crap they are planning to put in AMC’s place. The PUKE… The FOOL… The CHIT .. I cant even say the crappy name. When I think about AMC going off the air and those ugly boney characters they want to replace my soap with. I just get a queasy feeling inside. ABC Execs are so out of touch it’s not funny, but to… Read more »

As someone who has watched Days and AMC on and off for about 25 years, I recommend strongly that you not bother. Even at its worst, AMC is so much better than Days — the acting is better, the storylines are more interesting, and the characters relate to each other in a far more meaningful way. The sharply downward trend in Days ratings over the last 18 months attest to what a total trainwreck Days is. The only thing worth watching now is Chappell’s performances and even that is solely for the great acting, not anything about the show’s storyline… Read more »

Even diehard DAYS fans would acknowledge that John and Marlena haven’t been interesting for 15-20 years. (Basically, their last interesting moment was when Sami walked in on them in Titan boardroom resulting in the conception of Belle). Marlena is only interesting when she’s possessed or brainwashed. John is a clueless oaf. Carrie and Austin are far from riveting. Jack is usually a joke; Matthew Ashford shined when he was Todd Manning-esque 20 years ago, the tortured soul aiming for redemption. He shined as a serial killer on OLTL. But Jack has been written as a buffoon for most of the… Read more »

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
