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!

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 OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
