Hi Greg! First off, I can’t tell you what a delight it is to have Leo back on screen! You must be having an absolute blast (you can tell onscreen) being back at Days. I mean…how much fun did you have taping that wedding?! The suit and hair were on point! And the scenes with Sheila (T-boz) officiating had fans ROTFL ! So tell us what is next for Leo? Will he continue to torment Sonny/Will?? Also, will there be more scenes with Leo and Sheila bc those 2 together are a comedy act! Also, Judith Chapman is returning as Leo’s mother…what can you tell us about that??

Please tell Greg Rikkart he is doing AMAZING work at Days of Our Lives please!

I tried calling just now but my connection was bad, I was hoping to speak to Greg Rikkart or leave him a comment.

Please tell Greg Rikkart that he is knocking it out of the ballpark! Ron C. writes the best lines for Leo and Greg gives Leo life! Is Greg going to have more questions with Sheila?

And I love hearing Robin Strasser. I miss her, Dorian and OLTL. it was cancelled when it shouldn’t have been, OLTL was on fire and their ratings were much better than GH was!

Absolutely right, Blake. Hard to believe Y&R let the versatile, sexy Greg Rikaart go so they could hire a bunch of zeros like Mia, Kerry, Nate, Rey, etc. Tells you a lot about why Y&R is unwatchable these days while DAYS has a glut of great (and great-looking) actors.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.
