Ratings Report for the Week of October 20-24, 2014
From Liam and Ivy, to Hope and Wyatt, Ridge and Caroline, Rick and Maya and even menacing Quinn herself, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" previews its November Sweeps storylines as told by executive producer and head writer Bradley P. Bell on the official website of the daytime soap.
While it's been the worst kept secret in daytime, Soap Opera Network can finally report that actress Molly Burnett is returning to NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the contract role of Melanie Jonas, a role in which she originated in 2008. Burnett, who left the soap in 2012 in order to pursue outside projects, returns to Salem as her character harbors a secret that even daddy Jonas (Shawn Christian) isn't aware of!
While he played a waiter on two episodes of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" in 2010, actor Christopher Sean is getting the chance to play what he loves when he joins the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" next week as Paul, a baseball player who is being treated by Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) after an injury he's sustained. His first airdate is set for Friday, November 7.
“It’s impossible to forget Samantha Brady!” declared Caroline (Peggy McCay) on yesterday’s episode of “Days of our Lives,” exactly mirroring the thoughts that many of the sudser’s fans have had on their minds leading up to star Alison Sweeney’s last episode today. Many tears have been shed (both onscreen and off), but was the character’s exit really movie magic? Or would a completely different ending been the way to go?
On Thursday, November 6, fans of NBC's "Days of our Lives" will once again say goodbye to Eileen Davidson as she wraps her three month stint as Kristen DiMera on the daytime drama series. During her return, much of Kristen's storyline revolved around her rivalry with Theresa (Jen Lilley) and her unusual relationship with Daniel (Shawn Christian), which included a roll in the hay.
After two decades of super sudsy storylines, Alison Sweeney is wrapping up her time as Samantha Brady on today’s episode of “Days of Our Lives.” And to mark the emotional occasion, the actress has penned a heartfelt letter to fans thanking them for their support!
With ABC becoming full owner of "The View," after buying out Barbara Walters' stake over the summer, the network announced today that the daytime talker will now fall under the purview of ABC News after more than 17 years under the entertainment division, this despite a drastic makeover this fall with the inclusion of three new hosts joining Whoopi Goldberg on the panel. With the talk show now falling under the umbrella of the news division, “General Hospital" and "The Chew" remain the only entertainment programming airing during the daytime on the network.

Good news, soap fans: The date for the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards has been set, and it’s closer than you might think!
As previously reported, soap stars Lindsay Hartley (“All My Children,” “Days of Our Lives,” “Passions“), Crystal Hunt (“Guiding Light,” “One Life to Live”), Vanessa Marcil (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “General Hospital”), Chrystee Pharris (“Passions,” “General Hospital”) and Hunter Tylo (“The Bold and The Beautiful”) have signed on for POP's newest reality series, "Queens of Drama," where the ladies will work together to produce a pilot for a new serialized primetime drama series. As the poster above warns, today, October 28, marks the beginning of production for show. Donna Mills (“General Hospital,” “Knots Landing,” “Melrose Place”) will also be taking part with special appearances.
Roxanna’s steamy “Unforgotten” music video featuring “Days of our Lives’” James Scott (ex-EJ DiMera) set the world on fire, and the flames will continue to roar: The pair has reunited in a second music video for the singer’s next single, “Here With Me,” which serves as a prequel to “Unforgotten.” And guess what? Soap Opera Network sat down with both Scott — who recently departed the daytime world — and Roxanna to get the scoop on what fans can expect from Part Two of their onscreen romance!
With the recent news that “The Bold and the Beautiful” is on an upswing regarding ratings, fans have had their fingers crossed that more good news would follow — including a possible return by beloved beauty Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (ex-Steffy Forrester). In response to the buzz, the actress took to Facebook to set the record straight concerning whether or not she’ll be back to stir up more trouble for Liam (Scott Clifton), Hope (Kim Matula) and the rest of the Forrester clan.
