65 September 26th, 2014 RATINGS: DAYS Has Solid Week Adds Total Viewers And Up In Key Demos!

Courtesy/NBC

The ratings are out for the week of September 15th-19th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives which was the only network soap to gain in total viewers! DAYS tallied in at 2,534,000 adding +34,000!

Looks like as things were heating back up between Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott), Chad (Billy Flynn) was making his presence known in Salem, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) was trying to move on with her life away from Bo, and admitting she has feelings for Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove), Eric (Greg Vaughan) was making a sacrifice to help save John (Drake Hogestyn), these story points and other helped the series also show gains in the key Women’s demos as well: DAYS was up in Women 18-49 and Women 25-54!

In fact, DAYS was the only soap to gain viewers in the female 25-54 category.  And DAYS was also the only soap not to lose viewers in the 18-34 Women’s demo.

The Young and the Restless lost the most total viewers for the week losing -180,000 and dropping its 1st place lead to 4,522,000! And the number one soap also lost the most viewers in the women’s 25-54 demo!

General Hospital which was full of surprises on-screen during the ratings period was down in total viewers ever so slightly -7,000, but still close to the 3 million mark with 2,996,000!  In addition, GH added some viewers in the Women’s 18-49 and 18-34 demos. The Bold and the Beautiful lost viewers in all key demos, but only was down -9,000 in total viewers coming in for the week with 3,429,000.  Check out the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here!

    I stopped watching around 1988, 89. It became trashy and Jerry Springer-like.

    Moved to ABC soaps and never looked back.

    I, on the other hand, I GH and came to Days and never looked back. We might have bumped into each other in hall.

    good to see Days is doing well. This was Days best week in a while. GH holding steady,ratings were low on Friday probably due to the NFL press conference. B&B needs some new stories. I’m sick of Hope,Liam,Wyatt triangle. They are wasting some actors. Y&R is the most boring soap right now. Subpar stories,and they are dragging on too long. Let’s hope Y&R’s new head writer can give us some good stories,and lift the snoozefest.

    Oh, good grief, Robert…lol. Y&R has been great this past week. Phyllis is AWAKE!!!! And on the go!,,, we can already see how Phyllis’ determination put the wheels in motion.
    Nonethess, you are so right about Days. I was very much impressed by Theresa and her exceptional acting. Her face is an open book. You can literally see and smell the fear in her changing expressions…her fear is palpable…WHAT A PERFORMANCE!!!! I am, however, somewhat concerned, in that, if she is found out, it will be the end for this character. So, inasmuch as I feel guilty even thinking this….I hope John never remembers what really happened.
    GH is just wowing me also. All in all…my soaps delivered!

    i’m so glad.. that posts are positive about Jenn Lilly

    she just knocks me out, over, and IN her show

    quote, unquote… from the other lady, herself… Kassie DePaiva

    asked about Jenn Lilly : “She’s Fearless” (from SOD)

    ’nuff said

    she has all the attributes for riveting

    if she’s not clearly fleshed out… as fans have bemoaned, she’s more on than most

    LOL… I am so satisfied with JL take, after take… with regard to character actor

    Jeanne Theresa Donovan is at the top of her game

    the TOPS

    where to start: I loved the scenes this past week with Mom Caroline Brady and soon to be ex daughter in law, Hope

    Caroline tells Hope… “you’ll always be my daughter”

    this was before, Aiden shows up at the pub… and quipping to Hope about their date….

    cut to the quick… knife plunged…. her son Bo… AND “Hope” ????

    nuCHAD is right on. I love the nuSophistication adulthood… eyes that engulf… I like this nuCHAD… he’s got all the acumen a DiMera needs…. it’s all being laid out for this new stalwart…. it’s his show… sigh: once EJ and Kristen ( leave… of their own accord ???? !!!!! ) that was my bemoan… but… Chad with dad… is DiMera clandestine behaviour

    i have a bit of a reservation…. about pairing him with Abs…. as she’s the childlike, hasn’t earned her stripes or shown womanhood worth…. on her own. she barely flickers with Ben…. it was hot with EJ…. it was laugh out loud… all in a GOOD way…. could have been and still is her sexiest act yet. with Patrick Muldoon’ Austin. I don’t see it with Ben… talk about a character who’s one dimensional…. flex some muscle… and stand by Jordan and Abby… with nary a reason…. do we care about Ben… this long : i’m over him…. his sullen stubborn, bore his eyes in to Chad at his place of employ… wasn’t cutting it….

    I LIKE their father… Clyde… if this gives us more air time with Kate…. she deserves to feel

    that pleasure dome… that’s all her. Kate has it all…. why not some Clyde… LOL… I like his southern/hill billy/ dare… doesn’t he clean up rather nicely. still, to this day…. Jordan and Ben are inconsiquential… matter? I think not. placing Kate with Rafe… and it seems obvious that it’s going to be Chad with Abs… so, missing these two… is not going to happen…. I’m sorry to say that about Jordan. if they kept Clyde… LOL.. that’d work for me… as Jordan and Ben are once agian on the lam… running… far away from Salem’ites

    John’s awake. I hope this gives him a noggen…. a brain to let go… Brady is a grown man….. LOL… if he hasn’t learned by now… that he’s not listening to his parents… and “loves” the wrong women…. Theresa and Kristen… SO what ?!?! he’s fun to watch with both of these women with edge…. till he get’s it… here’s hoping he never does… cause he’s FUN.. doing what he does with these two women… let it forever run it’s course

    my biggest beef: in the eventual demise… of EJ, Sami, and Kristen…. the writers’ need to pull it together… and pronto…. I’m over Eric… wrestling and jostling with his own shadow…. Nicole IS…. our future…. let these two have at each other…. HE”S too hot… to waste time …. front and center these two… they have “IT” in spades to help the onslaught of no more…. EJ, Sami, and Kristen

    they could also send to la la land… Jenn and Daniel… and bring back : Shane, Kimberly, and Sheryl…. (Lucas ex )… and they could also rid us of Jordan and Ben.

    I’m not getting the Abs and Ben are tight
    I caught on to Paige and evenmoreso… that she’s Eve’s daughter… so she’ll never go away in my book… and it’s GOOD with JJ as well… let’s see more trepidation, smolder, tease, and whet… with more Eve and JJ

    Sami and EJ : even I have to confess… they are better, together… the turmoil for this pairing… is too much… tumultuous staggers and whets the appetite… which these two have … is this paving the way…. for Stefano and Chad to supplant every one else… and herald… the future of the DiMera… as EJ, Sami, and Kristen bid adieu

    Hope and Aiden : gosh darned it… Bo, is so handsome… and this pairing will always be

    the writing and pairing of Hope and Aiden has marveled…. it’s not Bo… but… it’s doable… about time… that Aiden pulls Hope through… it’s her new life…. and, it’s so easy to forthwith…. Aiden…. he’s dreamy, his eyes circumnavigate your wholesome…. LOL.. it’s time Hope…. just time… it’s Bo’ loss

    Theresa is going to rise … and be.. what she’s wanted…. rich, moneybags… status, power…. if she ends up preggers with Brady’ child… and Johns grandson…. she’s such a powerhouse of an actress

    I wish upon hope…. that the writers would bring back… Justin Kiriakis for an Eve/Adrienne triangle

    Sonny and Will : god… one can’t help but think of Chandler Massey… but… the nuWill… does have more on moments than we need to get over CM. perhaps it’s with Sonny discontent… his time to shine… that he admits… a wandering eye… a power pull all his own… a Kiriakis aplomb worthy all his own… Sonny’ on

    Eileen Davidson’ Kristen : knowing you’re leaving days… is a quandry …. dull genoa city…. time spent… hopefully, SONY , contacts you to DAYS…. as you’ve led

    Kassie DePaiva : Eve” i’m still loving you…. now that it seems the writers have steered clear of you and Jenn… thank god…. as the godlike Jenn bible thumping has dulled…. and it’s time to leave well enough alone with your daughter Paige…. she’s good with JJ

    I can only hope that Eve and Justin Kiriakis meet

    I LOVE DAYS… and am so happy for the last two plus years…. it’s on target for daytime recipe… and above board… deserving of the cream of the crop

    the best show

    Mary Lynn replied

    Oh, I more than disagree. I hope John does remember everything. Then I hope he persuades Marlena to keep his secret so the two of them can trap Theresa in her web of lies. I want John and Marlena to lead “poor” little Theresa down the garden path to her own destruction; right to Victor’s doorstep. Don’t forget, Brady is Victor’s grandson. He will happily takeTheresa apart for what she did to both John and Brady.

    harry replied

    Great post, Patrick–thank you for your efforts. And I concur, Cee Cee,
    The Phyllis return is being handled very well and I think I am going to like Gina’s Phyllis even better than Michelle’s. Gina has a way of conveying an almost scary sense of determination which makes me shudder for both Kelly and Sharon. The bitch is back.
    It does sound like GH is delivering and I most likely will return to watch Billy Miller as Jason, Fluke and of course, Luke, who I dearly miss.

    CeeCee replied

    Hi, Mary Lynn. I can enumerate Theresa’s evil-doing along with you. You are absolutely right. I am not trying to absolve the character’s ‘evils’. But, Jen Lilley is an absolute flawless and stellar actress, deserving an Emmy. That was my point. I would rather see her on my screen than John and that weird thing he does with his eyes. Plus, Theresa is trying….she’s just scared. If only she had a positive, good person to guide her instead of the bad influence of an older sister and twisted supervisor (Anne).

    And, if we get down to the nitty gritty, Theresa felt threatened by John. He came at her, menacingly, teeth bared ; growling like a bear and pushed her so hard, she fell. Not only that, but he then turned toward Brady. One could argue that Theresa panicked as she thought John was about to charge and hurt Brady. That was the moment she struck him….it is called survival. It is instinctual. That is what I saw.

    I have kept true to my word… and am only recording, Y&R friday eps only

    not one thing kept my attention

    even, nuPhyllis lamed me out

    what does intrigue some… is Neil blindness…. LOL… what potential for intrigue of the senses… what a daring romp … a lesson for Neil

    this lesson with nuWIFE and his “step”son, 2 billion dollar “man” Devon…. is duller than dull

    not one story…. course, it’s only friday eps… but… I daresay…

    I was more interested in the Nikki and nuDRINKING “bud’ ding ” friend go where

    CeeCee replied

    Hmmm, Patrick…that is where we have a difference of opinion. I am enthralled by the Phyllis storyline right now. I await the ‘meeting’…..when Jack and she come face to face…I actually get chills. I hope the writers make this ‘finally here’ meeting remarkable and unforgivable.

    Neil? Well, what a lost cause! Poor guy can’t catch a break…..boring repetition. He has no luck with his wives. First, Drucilla cheats on him with his brother…now, his present wife with his son? ….the most boring actor on daytime.

    As yourself, I am looking forward to more scenes between Nikki and Maureen.

    CeeCee replied

    Disagree…doing much better and on track!

    Reply

    harry replied

    I agree–Y&R is doing much better. Patrick, not sure what you mean when you say nuPhyllis “Lamed” you out. Is that a good thing?

    Also, I LOVE Mariah. She is the female Adam–conflicted, angry, hurt, defensive and terribly vulnerable. It occurred to me that it’s time to bring back Danial as a potential love interest for Mariah. Considering her twin sister Cassie had a huge crush on him and was driving his drunken self home when she encountered the deadly crash, I think a romance between the two would be really interesting. And I always really liked Danial. With the return of Phyllis, maybe this will happen.

    CeeCee replied

    And, Patrick? We agree on Maura West…but she’s bad. Will we see a new and ‘revised edition’? We shall see.
    What really kills me is when Sonny tells Carly that Ava WILL pay for what she has done…..oh, yes, I agree. But, what about himself? Why should he get away with killing AJ?… .my beloved AJ!!! Methinks Sonny is too full of his superlative self……so omnipotent that he is allowed to get away with every dastardly crime he commits. …..voila’, Patrick…that’s how I feel.

    CeeCee replied

    @harry: I think that by ‘lamed out’, Patrick means that he was disinterested with Y&R, specifically Phyllis. To each his own, I guess.
    But, au contraire, I found Gina/Phyllis overwhelmingly on the mark. I sized her up…thinking she would never be en par with Michelle Stafford. But, in a short span of time, she reeled me in and held my attention with every nuance in her facial expressions.
    After all these months, I can finally look forward to watching some real action instead of sanctimonious Christine; sacrificial lamb Neil; almost-a-man-but-not-quite-yet Devon, making puppy eyes at Hillucifer; desperately-seeking-vodka Nikki etc. whew !!!!

  5. Priscilla Kennedy says:

    GH is really silly right now, but keeps me tuned in with the hope that Sonny gets what is coming to him. B & B needs new story lines stat. I can go months without watching and miss nothing. The Liam/Hope saga played out long ago and they are just ruining the characters to come up with ways to keep it going. Between the repeat dialogue and flashbacks, this show is not worth watching for me.

    It is not silly..
    It is however very dark drama and way out of the traditional soap box…
    GH is unique and has its’ own way, but far from silly and closer to prime time..
    It is full of variety but nothing silly .. :)

    Patrick replied

    I just don’t want any thing… ANY : thing : else happening to Maura West’ Ava

    I thought she was already written in to a corner.. via AJ death…. and now.. more trivialized hate… via Jason

    Maura West has done so much for GH…

    Maura West is GH
    Eileen Davidson is DAYS
    Kelly Sullivan is Y&R

    I can’t believe we have all this treasure

    harry replied

    So I guess the Pickle Lila was the opposite of silly? It was a dignified and serious story.
    Listen, calling GH silly is not stretch any more than it is an insult. Those who are calling it silly love it despite its silliness.

    jonboy replied

    Okay, people freezing and being brought back to life is not silly? Anna Devine’s running of the PD is not silly? Sonny’s caricature of a mob moss is not silly? Milo and Epiphany, not silly? Obrecht as chief of staff of a major hospital, not silly? A murderous Cassadine head of the WSB, not silly? Dark drama? My foot!

  6. Chloe says:

    Days is up because EJami is together again. They’ve always been ratings gold & the ratings go up when they’re together. Imagine how good the show could have been doing if not for the EJabby debacle. Sadly, Ali & James will be riding off into the sunset in a couple of weeks & I don’t believe the current storylines will help ratings very much. Dannifer is awful & loathed by most people. Ericole is just boring, as is the whole Jordan, Ben & Clyde story. Even Kristen has been mostly wasted this time around.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    You’re right, Chloe. I had surmised that it was inescapable that EJami would once again be together, as a family. They will leave for parts unknown due to either imminent danger, or go on an extended vacation. …..how will the ratings hold up after that?
    We agree on Dannifer. Daniel thinks he’s so righteous and God’s gift to women, children, and, well….to the human race. Jenny? What’s with the hair? A bun?????? Women with thin lips should not wear red lipstick. It looks like someone just drew two lines where her mouth is……..don’t the hair and makeup people know that? She is a pretty woman and still young to wear different clothes and sport different hair styles……why make he look so matronly?
    I also agree about the other characters, especially Nicole. I love her….so gorgeous….she has been hanging on the vine for too long. Soon, she will look like a raisin…lol. Please, give her a REAL STORY……forget about Eric; he’s starting to get on my nerves….which is not a small feat, since he’s so beautiful…sigh.

    I’ve only been watching Days for a few months and I have to say I really enjoy it. I spent 2 years watching Y&R and trying to get into it. I finally had to give it up. It just didn’t hold my attention. Days is so much more alive. Things are happening. The characters have lives and you care what happens to them. I enjoy the stories. The acting is great. I am certainly going to miss Allison Sweeney and James Scott. They are terrific. My pal Kassie DePaiva is raising hell as Eve and I love it. And I’m so happy the James Read is there too. His character, Clyde, has a lot of potential and Read can definitely pull it off. Kate had better look out. Can’t wait to see what they have in mind for Mellissa Archer.

    GH is a lot better and more entertaining than the others…but it still has some flaws and several boring characters…did Heather rescue real Luke…he was in that clinic that exploded so i thought…Days had an interesting week…i still believe Jordan was a prostitute and stepdaddy Clyde was her pimper…Eve not working for me but im still glad to see Kassie in daytime…Y&R i watch on occasion and i havent watched B&B in over a month…just grateful there are still soaps in daytime!!! Wish i got retro…wouldv’e loved to have seen The Doctors again…but my top favorite soap remains Coronation Street…love its character driven storlines and their more down to earth realistic portrayel of everyday middle working class life!!! A cable channel should carry British soaps!!!!!

    David replied

    Luke is in Miscavage the mental hospital in Port Charles. The clinic that exploded was Crichton Clark in a different town. 2 different places. Miscavage is the mental hospital in Port Charles that houses Heather although she manages to escape all the time. Since Robin Mattson is supposed to be back on screen soon it could involve her saving Luke but not sure that Tony Geary is back taping scenes as I know he had a major back operation that has kept him off screen longer than expected(except for a few scenes he taped before he left)

    Thats right…forgot its Mscavage…i got both places mixed up…thanks for the reminder!!!

    DAYS and GH are the soaps I watch consistently. Though I have watched all shows the past few. weeks. The CBS shows are ridiculous. GH is silly, but entertaining…you can tell what is Ron’s style. The writing on DAYS is superior to any of the other shows IMO. That is why I prefer it. Heterosexual are my ratings still:

    1. DAYS
    2. GH
    3 B&B

    I record Days as it is on opposite GH here in the midwest. This allows me the luxury of FF through every scene Sami is in. There are a couple of other characters I find deathly boring and their scenes also get the benefit of my finger on the FF button.

    So glad to see DAYS gaining a little steam..I started watching in 2012 and its just been entertaining even when at times the story lines drag on and on and the show’s current supercouple Jennifer/Daniel are kept apart for one reason or the other.

    It has been the best soap the last couple of years, for the most part (when GH is written well, it tops any show) and with a smaller cast than GH and Y&R.

    The head honchos at DAYS, should try anything in their powers to bring Roger Howarth to the show..He is not a good fit at GH as Franco due to poor writing..I think ratings will rise more if he came to DAYS and he seems tailor fit for this show, not to mention Ms DePaiva is a current resident and Melissa is coming soon, LOL..DAYS should try to get those lost OLTL fans to tune in, if they are smart!!

    Great job, Y&R and B&B. Both shows are very good right now.

    Y&R is finally looking like a Bill Bell soap again. Who would have thought his own daughter-in-law would trash his legacy, only to have it semi-saved by JFP. Hopefully Mr. Pratt won’t ruin all the improvements that have been made.

    Just a note to those who call Y&R slow moving and boring. I sort of get that because it doesn’t cater to the frozen world, demonic possession crowds. It is indeed slow moving, but it’s not boring. It’s just a more sophisticated show catered to a specific audience who enjoy slow-moving character-driven melodrama punctuated by life-changing events. LML and MAB tried to turn Y&R into something it’s not. It was a show that was not broken up until around 2006, so you don’t need to fix excellence and superiority. I give JFP credit for turning this show around because credit is due here, like her history or not.

    For those who still outrageous claim GH is the number one soap, I just say that ship sailed in the last millennium circa 1988, before all 4 of my children were born. In the scheme of things, GH was top rated for a very short time. Small vocal minorities do not equal ratings dominance for a quarter century.

    Jared replied

    Like I said, Y&R has a less vocal audience. It’s always been that way. Thread postings don’t equal ratings. Y&R has a different demographic, pure and simple. It’s obviously a larger, much larger demographic, than GH has. That’s not to be insulting. It just means different people have different viewing and posting habits. I just think people need to get over GH not being top rated anymore. In the 25 plus years since GH has lost its short lived top ranking, numerous other shows have moved in front of it: AMC, DAYS, B&B, OLTL, etc. Meanwhile, Y&R has been numerically dominant above all daytime dramas during this period. Can’t spin numbers and actual viewers; and with all due respect, thread postings have nothing to do with ratings. Y&R viewers are actually watching and enjoying their favorite show and then proceeding with their lives.

    su0000 replied

    I watch both Y&R and GH ..
    thing is; Y&R is so boring, nothing happening, same stories going on for a long year that it has nothing to comment about because nothing ever changes nothing happens..
    with GH..
    something is always turning, being controversial, and new whatevers are happening, always something surprising or shocking.. so there is much to talk about with GH ..
    and that has nothing do with ratings it has to do with which soap is moving and entertaining and new things happening, to have/get 150 comments ..
    while Y&R comments are under 20, there is nothing new and exciting to comment on :)

    harry replied

    (We are counting posts again)
    Excuse the Reagan paraphrasing, but there she goes again.

    You find Y&R boring, others do not. I find counting comments to be boring, you don’t.
    Different strokes.

    I am not surprised to see DAYS as the only soap to gain viewers, at least where I stand, as I watch the only other three left on the air, but now I am watching all four. But GH has become boring to me with the majority of the stories currently running.

    I find each soap has it own flavor and depending on your mood that soap will resonate with you– if you want romance then watch B&B- although it is the same romance story being told over and over, at least there is actual romance on this show.

    If you want cops and robbers, murder, with a dash of humor and a passionate kiss or hot bedroom scene thrown into the mix every now and then– watch GH.

    If you want the day to day drama of the lives of the rich and not so famous check out Y&R, but if you are in the mood for it all- watch DAYS–

    If Forrest Gump watched a soap it was probably DAYS because this show is like a box of chocolates you’ll never know what you will get– it could be the dull boring vanilla center that is Jenn and Daniel, or it could be the spicy center that is Ejami making love. It could be the nutty center that is Kristen or the rum center that is Brady. There is a little something for every taste, but chocolates although tasty never really fill you up–but sometimes that all one needs- a treat and that’s it.

    Mary regarding B&B.just watched Thursday & Friday’s shows just got thru pouring water on my tv from the scenes with Ridge & Caroline! Good night nurse I have not seen sexual chemistry like that in years! Bring it on!

    I know every time one of those scenes comes on where Ridge is guiding her hand to draw my television is also smoking from all the heat these two produced. I must admit, as much as a part of me will always think of Ronn Moss as Ridge– I sincerely doubt he could have pulled off that smoldering sexuality this new guy has in these scenes. It is their relationship that helps me endure the endless triangle of Hope Liam and Wyatt.

    Sure, Mary…the same could be said about GH….except the box of chocolates is a lot bigger and nuttier with fudge and vanilla swirls.
    You are right…there’s variety in all the soaps. I do not watch B&B ….never did. But, I am thankful for the other three.

    You said it-Dannifer-how many times do we need to rehash the onslaugh of talks over the break-up? Daniel needs a hot. sultry leading lady! I like Jenn most when she is in scenes with Hope. I like their friendship-how close they are as cousins. Daniel always being the hero-needs to end, too-same ol’ scene over and over again.

    Days and GH are the best soaps on the air and should be 1&2. B&B has hit an time low in storytelling and Y&R is on very shaky ground.

    Awwwhhhh…what a beautiful domestic scene on Y&R…..Billy and Chelsea and Johnny and Connor …..all sharing in eating ice cream. !!!!! I wonder, will these two boys grow up knowing they’re brothers????

    I must add….for those who have given up on Y&R (as I had, but no longer) , there will be hell to pay, if my predictions are correct. So, stay tuned….

    Firstly, it is obvious to all of us, now that Phyllis is back, that doomsday is approaching for Sharon….Phyllis will surely go a-Viking……hopefully, she has not lost that unique spirit that only she can deliver. And, Kelly ? She won’t know what hit her…oh, quelle surprise !!!!!

    What about the Billy/Chelsey/Victoria debacle? What are the chances that when Billy’s and Chelsea’s relationship becomes more serious and Chelsea wants custody of Johnny? It would not be the first time…in real life or otherwise. Chelsea is the bio mother which gives her two legs on which to stand her ground. If she and Billy were to marry, it would only reinforce her stance.

    and today, of COURSE Sharon has to look incredibly silly modeling her bikini for Nicholas when Phyllis comes to their door. Perfectly in character.

    I love the smaller cast, balance, and consistency of DOOL! The writing regime has really worked hard to get the show back on track-focusing on its core characters and families, the hospital, relationships, and romances. I absolutely love Eileen Davidson as Kristen Dimera. I would love to have the fearless demeanor (and style) of Kate Roberts! Love Casey Moss as JJ! I always have loved Deidre Hall as Dr. Marlena Evans! I love most of the cast! I’m happy the show is doing well! & I am beginning to like nuChad (nuWill-not so much).
