The ratings are out for the week of November 21-25th, Thanksgiving week. And while the soaps only aired three days of new episodes, it showed very strong gains for most of the five soaps, and most notably One Life to Live which picked up another + 167, 000 viewers of the week with the emotional episode of Matthew flat-lining leading the charge.

Days of our Lives has perked up since EJ and Sami’s grief sex and the fallout.  The lone NBC soaps picked up another + 87,00o viewers! The Bold and the Beautiful also registered well with the viewers remaining  in second place and adding another + 136,000 viewers.  Even last place, General Hospital picked up some viewers during the week.

The top rated The Young and the Restless was the only soap to lose viewers for the week with -38,000 eyeballs checking out of  Genoa City.  To view the entire ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network click here.

So glad OLTL ratings are strong proving that ABC made a huge mistake cancelling it. Your new shows may be cheaper to produce, but no longer will you have a dedicated audience. I hope its worth it ABC.

It’s all about the executives being greedy and wanting more money for themselves….the ratings for The Chew were not better than that of AMC, but being that it’s cheaper to produce, and there aren’t as many paychecks to sign, that means there is more money to disperse among the higher ups….and that’s all they seem to care about. However, what they fail to see is, come January 13th, when OLTL goes off the air, bad times are ahead for ABC daytime. I expect that all of ABC Daytime will be effected by this decision of canceling OLTL & AMC. So, when no one watches The Revolution or The Chew it won’t matter that it’s cheaper to produce cause you won’t have the profit to roll around in. I pray that advertisers pull out and really make it hard for ABC.

And OLTL gained 460,000 viewers over last year before it was cancelled. Almost a half million! How they could cancel such an awesome show with such great actors is beyond me!

I’m tried but still furious of the fact theses shows have been thrown to the side and
believe those exec’s will pay. Theses new shows will have no viewers as fateful ones.

Days has seemed to get a little better since the Ejami ‘incident’. The scenes, storylines, character development and interactions seem to have improved. Seems they need to have Ejami scenes every once in a while to spark the show and the ratings. Seems people want that. Whether they are meant to be a couple or not, I cannot not say, but definitely some passionate scenes seem to work and help boost the ratings whether people want Ejami or not. I would think the writers and PTB would figure out a way to work this in every now and then.

yep, right in the money but i am not sure these writers are smart enough to get it, they seem to just use them to drive stories and get them some ratings boots and buzz for sweeps..after that welcome back borefest..Ha.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
