RATINGS: Y&R, B&B, GH & DAYS All Up In Total Viewers!

The ratings are out for the week of August 29th through September 2nd, which featured a pivotal week for The Young and the Restless, in which it aired its 11,000th episode and ended the run of series star, Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), who departed in a explosive series of events.

Going around the horn with the four network daytime soaps, each saw an uptick in total viewers.  Led by Y&R, which showed the highest increase of +91,000 and featured a Monday episode that landed an average of over 5 million viewers, the number one-rated soap fared the best for the ratings period.  However, it should be noted it did not do as well in key demos showing minuses in total viewers in the 18-49 and 25-54 female categories.

ABC’s General Hospital showed the second highest total audience gains for the week adding +64,000.  GH began its JaSam wedding, revealed who is the hospital killer and more, during the ratings week.  Additionally, GH was the only daytime drama to add viewers all three key demos: 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.

As for CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful they also added +40,000 total viewers, but on the converse, the show lost viewers in all key demo categories. The series continues to tie lows in the 18-34 and 18-49 ratings share.

Days of our Lives, which aired its final week of airshows under the old head writing regime led by Josh Griffith, added some eyeballs with a plus +9,000, while remaining in the loss column of adding viewers in key demos.  It will be interesting to see how the new episodes under new co-head writers, Dena Higley and Ryan Quan will track with the viewers once the ratings come in from September 6th airshows and beyond.  View the entire current ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,760,000 (+91,000/-17,000)
2. B&B 3,758,000 (+40,000/+190,000)
3. GH 2,588,000 (+64,000/-47,000)
4. DAYS 2,158,000 (+9,000/-157,000)

So, which soap opera do you think aired the best episodes during the ratings period? Which show is performing worse or better in the ratings than you expected? Which show is piquing your interest right now each week?  Which, is not? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!

Ratings will always go up and down but as long as they dont stay down and keep going down there shouldnt be much to worry unless we get a frons type in charge of things…

Yes, jimh, you’re right. I’ve never cared much about ratings, that is until they use them to cancel shows I like (AS THE WORLD TURNS, NASHVILLE, MURDER ONE, RED BAND SOCIETY). Hopefully our treasured shows will carry on for many years to come!

Seems the ”Nielsen Families” tuned into the soaps and were counted last week..
It would be kewl if when we watch we were counted, but we are not ..
I wonder how many viewers there ”actually” are, we are just an estimate of the Nielsen people/watchers…LOL
heh if I watch or not it makes no difference because I am not counted, I’m just an estimate 🙁

Y&R is really good! it has actual stories/plots ((GH does not it just has boring junk ahaa))

Long live our soaps!!!

Y&R is getting good now, next week Jack finds out that Phyllis and Billy boy are sleeping together. GH is really boring right now, but it will get better in time. Days better get their ratings up, or kiss goodbye too Days next year. Alison Sweeney needs to come back to Days, I miss her so much.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes…and it should not be such a big surprise for Jack! He’s already been through this ” my wife cheated on me with my brother” thing.
Jack lost his pants….doesn’t look too good with his wife’s skirt on. And, Billy needs to be run through.
I’m with you, Mark. I wish Alison would come back with Will and EJ.
As I said on another thread, the trio is together, somewhere in Switzerland. Well, it could happen that way.

Celia you might be right, you should be a writer for Days. The show needs a good writer right now. I hope Days gets better, and stays on the air. Lol to funny Jack sure lost his pants all right. He is a wimp and better get his act together. Alison Sweeney is a wonderful actress, I hope she comes back to Days, I know it was her decision to leave but she is missed.

Hey, Jay,
You know, I am so used to Jack blowing in the wind, as it were, that I can pretty much tolerate him…..regardless his stupidity….as I said he lost his pants ( could say he lost something else….but, ….LOL).
Billy? From day one, Jason T did not jive with me. Later.

Things are starting to get interesting now. What I don’t understand is how a man as smart as Jack hasn’t seen the writing on the wall before now. He has walked in Billy’s house a couple of time at least, and they were the only two there. One time Phyllis was nly wearing Billy’s shirt. If that wasn’t a clue, I don’t know what he is waiting for. I really hoping the Sully situation comes out soon. That will really affect alot of people. Especially if it comes to light that Adam and not Nick is the father, which Chelsea… Read more »

Agreed, Mark. DOOL is in BIG need of damage control. I will probably be ‘kicked in the arse’ by Hope fans, but, am I the only one who feels Hope and Rafe do not stir any emotion as lovers? Rafe has lost his ‘cool’ factor….reminds me of Jack Abbott. What’s up with these guys? Or, should I say LITTLE WOMEN?? I could never be with a guy who fawned all over me the way these guys do. Respect is a must; showing affection is a plus, but, this is ridiculous. I loved him with Sami. I actually looked forward to… Read more »

The writing on Y&R has indeed gotten a lot better. Celia, I could not agree with you more about Jack. If I have to watch him grovel one more time at Phyllis’s feet apologizing for having the audacity to breath while in her presence, I am going to kick my air filter. And what gives with Billy? Billy has always been a deeply flawed character with a big heart. He suddenly seems so cold. He doesn’t seem to care that he is betraying his brother and he doesn’t seem to give a damn about his mother. The only person he… Read more »

Lol Celia venting is good for the soul. Good to let it out. Agree Rafe and Hope bore me to death. Love Rafe, but he belongs with Kate Roberts. They had terrific chemistry. I hope the new Abby can act, she debuts in November. Poor Maggie please let her walk again. Probably will walk again by Christmas, you know how Days drags there storylines.

Celia
Guest

@Harry. Great way of describing Billy, Harry. Jason is not working, as Billy. Not even the original Billy ( David Tom) could play Billy as Billy M. It is what it is. Naughty Billy, as portrayed by BM was realistic…..we forgave him. I don’t know why, but I did; as I think many did, too. The present Billy obfuscates the character…..too nebulous, without definition. His composure, his looks, his gestures, his comportment speak of nothing. There is no ‘bad boy’ characteristic ( so effortlessly displayed by BM) that Jason’s Billy offers that draws me in. But, I do know the… Read more »

Harry…I really doubt that ANY actotr on any show, or film, has the liberty to interpret a character the way he/she wants to the extent that they play them angrier, colder, sillier, more emotional, etc than the writer (s) intended. Jason can’t just play Billy cold to distant himself from Patrick, but can take a role that’s different to show his versatility. I think whenever these characters seem “out of character” it’s because they’re just written differently. Of course each actor has his/ her own style but can’t deviate too much from who the character is written to be….

absolutely, Mark. If not Sami, the Kate. I have always loved Kate. This is one time where I don’t even think of Kate as being in her sixties. She is that hot and sexy. Kate has chemistry with any man….that’s something that is innate. It’s unfortunate why TPTB can’t keep this powerhouse grounded. They have a gem, but do not give her the credit she deserves. I am soooo waiting for Abby. As yourself, I hope her acting isn’t as languid as the fare we’ve been getting lately with the younger group. Abby and Chad must mesh, in all ways….physically,… Read more »

I’m very worried about the future of DOOL. GH, YR & BB consistently hold steady or show improvements. DOOL has had a writing revolving door for several years now and can’t seem to find worthy or fresh stories to tell. I hope this is not the swan song for this daytime legend!!! I will stay with it for as long as it takes to bring up those ratings. Come on Days of our Lives. We need you!!!!!

Geez I was thinking the same thing – for a while there, DAYS OF OUR LIVES was really interesting and innovative, between Will and Sonny having problems and of course EJ and Sami going at it – but now, to be honest, I force myself to watch it, if Belle leaves for Japan and takes what’s his name with her, I will be happy to say Sayonara – and take Claire too so we don’t have to listen to her whiney vocalizing which I could happily live without.

Sounds like another ratings win next week for Y&R! GH: Jason and Sam’s wedding was a snooze fest! Franco is EVERYWHERE! Give us a break!

Yes, switching gears to soaps, Jack NEEDS to show his manhood, so to speak and disown Billy. UNFORGETTABLE, hands down! Billy would be dead to me if he were my brother! Sam looked old to me.

Timmm, I always enjoy reading your take on things. I personally didn’t mind Jason and Sam’s wedding, however. I thought it was refreshing to see a wedding that was just a wedding for a change, two people got married, and that was it. No one got shot, stabbed, kidnapped, held hostage, no one’s ex-husband or ex-wife came back from the dead to interrupt the wedding, no one got left at the altar, no one got into a fight, no evil twins returned, no one got arrested, no one died. Did I hit enough soap opera wedding cliches, lol?

GH hardly has anything to crow about. It’s absolutely awful right now under the sloppy, lazy and insipid writing of Jelly.

I watched a bit more of Days this week, but mostly on Xfinity after the show was aired. There are commercials on that, so it must generate revenue – does that count at keeping Days on the air? Any way, I digress, I watched to see if there were any improvements. Some of it was not too bad, I just notice that I like the parts that are not so dark, gloomy, etc. – I like the more upbeat positive aspects. Example, Sonny (whom I love and glad is back) had a nice conversation with Chad trying to uplift him.… Read more »

DAYS is DOWN in households, share, and all reported demos from last week and last year. They are down in total from all previous years. A very small increase from LAST WEEK puts them just 4,000 above the LOWEST-EVER total of Tomsell’s era (Aug 2012 to Aug 2015). Days has been down in unprecedented dumps since May! (And the catastrophic fall-off began in February!). This year so far has brought Days three record-breaking new lows in totals (in the space of seven weeks).

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.
