  • Bexx

    Not surprising, but still quite nice to see Y&R sweep #1.

  • Andrew Hass

    I’m not surprised the ratings went down but maybe the good thing is most of the ratings in all the categories are up from the same time last year.

  • Laughing In Your Face

    All I have to say about those DAYS ratings is: HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!!!! Their shitty ass was the only one who didn’t get any viewers!!!! Hahahhaha!!!! I hope they’re the next soap to get cancelled. DAYS, you are NEVER getting my viewership or ratings EVER again!!!! #ByeBye #HelloGH

    • Bexx

      Bitterness is so unbecoming.

    • reed

      Days was actually renewed for two years. shows how much you know. Its the best soap on the air. Especially compared to that trashy and campy GH.

      • Jeff

        Well the numbers say differently. All 3 other soaps were at least up from one year ago while Days was down from one year ago. And Days is still stuck in last place where it belongs with its recent crappy stories.
        Congrats to Y&R, B&B and GH

        • Hudson

          Wow…. Classy

  • Blaire

    I hope James Scott leaves. His character is a joke now. EJ Dimera has been assassinated with this awkwardly disgusting Child & Pedo storyline. Days has totally ruined him. And for who? A bland, shitty actress like “ABBY!”. Just wrong. I would say he might as well leave with what little dignity “EJ” has left…but he’s got none. He has been completely destroyed beyond repair. RIP EJ Dimera. The character is dead for me, so is the show. I won’t be returning at all this time. See you in Cancelville, Days! You rightfully deserve it!

  • Paul

    Thought EJ and Abby were ratings gold I know all soaps went down and no couple make or breaks ratings but I thought Days would only dropped a few hundred thousands not nearly double that they only soap down from last year you destroyed Ejami for what lower ratings they better this time last year.

  • Lorenzo Canada Jr


  • Fox

    Good thing all those renewals came in last week ;->

  • Hugo

    Those are solid numbers for DAYS! The same week last year was the Nick/Gabi wedding debacle which scored big numbers so it’s not surprising that they are down compared to last year.

  • let the numbers speak

    Yeah, and guess what: The “normal” numbers are still very good, in comparison to the last year(s) and to other daytime shows.

    Soaps are drawing the best ratings in the key sales demos (that advertisers actually pay for) by far!

  • Kelly25

    By the way, where are the season averages?? Haven’t seen them for a couple of weeks now.

    As far as I’ve seen in the SON Ratings ArchiveTill, they must be the best since the 2007-2008 season!!

  • fanny

    ALL THE SOAPS are down in viewers and DAYS has always been last even when your “favorite” couple was on. Wishing a show to be cancelled, or an actor to quit his job (his bread & butter), simply because you don’t like his storyline, is truly pathetic… This is only a soap and these are actors performing on a soap. It’s not reality-tv! And just so you know, pedophiles prey on young children of 10 years old or less. That is definitely NOT the case with EJ & Abby on DAYS. Get a grip, people!
    That said, I’m enjoying DAYS very much these days, for many storylines and I’m not fixated on ONLY one. Congratulations to all the shows’ renewals!
