9 October 7th, 2011 RATINGS: Great week for DAYS as show reveals its reboot!

Days of our Lives was the big winner in the ratings for the week of September 26th through September 30th, and that is because, as many know and had been well planned, the show did its reboot that week, bringing with it staple stars, Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Matthews Ashford, Christie Clark and Patrick Muldoon.

DAYS increased its viewership + 260,000 eyeballs and that is also over last year at this same time.  DAYS also had increases for key demos during the week as well.

The only other show to garner more viewers that week was General Hospital who added +55,000 viewers. And the top three remained  1) The Young and the Restless 2) The Bold and the Beautiful 3) One Life to Live.

Also of note, this was the first week that All My Children did not appear in the ratings. Sadly, the ratings sheet looks more empty with only five soaps left at this time.  Who would have ever thought we would see that day?  View the full ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network after the jump!

    Great for Days! They deserved it! Bringing back old faves, great balance, great stories, great mysteries, pulling out all the stops!
    Hope Y&R learns from this!

    Glad to hear of Days’ ratings success! I am one of those viewers who tuned back in after years of not watching so I could see my faves Marlena, Carrie, Austin, John and Jack again. So far, I’m liking what I’m seeing, but I have to admit I don’t really like this cast outside of the returning characters and Bo, Hope, Jennifer, Kate, Stefano and Victor.

    I love them all and hope Bryan Dattilo/Lucas Horton comes home to Salem to stay forever.


    AlistairCrane replied

    Totally agree!!!

    OLTL lost its momentum. Victor being shot left for a so-so who dun-nit. It has been pretty boring all week. Let’s move story along…..who is in the hospital bed, who killed Victor, let Nat find out Brody knew about the paternity, let Jack go to juvenille detention, etc. I fast forwarded through much of the last 2 weeks. I haven’t done that in a long time.


    Torrey replied

    Yeah, I continue to watch, but these last two weeks have been agonizing…. We all know that Shane is the one who took out Victor. Stacy is in the bed, but she’s had her face re-done to look like Gigi (no secret, I’ve just put the pieces together) And for God’s sake will someone please tell John that he’s Liam’s father!!! Out of all the stories, that is the one that is getting on my nerves the most. This is the one major issue that I have with soaps…..they drag some stories on for a life time. The DNA baby story has outlived it’s expiration date. It’s so time for the truth the come out. I mean, has anyone else noticed how Natalie doesn’t even try to remember what happened on that rooftop between her and Marty? And I’m sick of Brody and this self-entitled attitude he has about being Liam’s father Oh, and how many times is Blair gonna scream from fright thinking that Todd has slipped off and died? Get the stupid man to the hospital, and hurry up and wrap this story up….Notice how Todd could care less about the trouble he has gotten his daughter in? Thought he was supposed to care so much about his kids…..

    Oh, and I must say, it was a little strange to look at the ratings and not see AMC listed there any longer….very sad. :(

    yep the show needs Bryan Dattilo/Lucas Horton and now that
    Farah Fath is out at OLTL,I think Days exMimi and Lucas would be great together,they could have meet why his been in Hong Kong and now they are coming home to Salem.


  6. Sue says:

    Some good news for Days. Glad it got a bump. It’s doing much better with the new stories I’m looking forward to watching every day.
