Each Monday, we plan to publish our weekly Daytime Ratings Report, which covers the broadcast soaps, game shows and talk shows. Unfortunately, due to an arm injury I sustained last Thursday, my typing skills have been put to the test and the report was delayed. Alas, I'm feeling a lot less pain than I did for much of the past week so here now is the daytime ratings report for the week of September 29-October 3, 2014. Better late than never, right? This week we highlight how the broadcast shows ranked overall in Total Viewers, Men 18+, Adults 18-49 and Median Age.
On Thursday, September 25, Soap Opera Network reported that CBS completed its 28th year as the most watched network in daytime with its highly ranked lineup consisting of soap operas "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," game shows "The Price is Right" and "Let's Make a Deal," and growing talker "The Talk." In honor of their continued success the network has bestowed upon the cast and crews of each program a plaque that highlights key reasons everyone watches CBS Daytime.
The Monday, October 13 episode of “Days of our Lives” marked the final airdate for James Scott as EJ, and to commemorate the momentous occasion, the series’ beloved actress Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) took to Facebook to not only list her favorite EJami moments, but to also share what it was like filming the tense scenes that ushered her onscreen love off the canvas. Following in the actress’ footsteps, Soap Opera Network is asking you to share your favorite EJami moments, too!
Last week fans had some hope that Peter Reckell might be returning to NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the coming months as his character Bo Brady after the actor tweeted, "With luck I'll have some answers by next week. I'll let u know what's happening as soon as I know. Thanks 4 your patience and understanding." Since then Reckell has clarified his comments with insight on what was not a factor in his deciding to leave the drama series two years ago, while emphasizing the importance of family.
A deafening shot rang out on Friday’s episode of “Days of our Lives,” but the piercing blast wasn’t able to drown out cries from fans who realized that the bullet probably spelled the end of EJ (James Scott). And once the howling began — onscreen and off — it built into a frenzy leading up to the character’s final moments in Salem, which played out on today’s episode. But just how powerful were the scenes, which also put the nail in the coffin for the relationship between EJ and Sami (Alison Sweeney)? And was murder the best way for Scott’s alter ego to be written off the canvas? Let us know after the jump!

Ratings Report for the Week of September 29 - October 3, 2014
With bidding set to expire on Thursday, October 23 at 3:02 PM EDT, Disney/ABC Television Group is auctioning off a nonspeaking walk-on-role on ABC's "General Hospital," which benefits the GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) Respect Awards Auction. Additional ABC related auctions benefitting GLSEN include a walk-on-role on "Modern Family," a chance to meet "The View's" Whoopi Goldberg and 4 tickets to a taping of the talk show, and 4 tickets to the season finale of "Dancing with the Stars" on Tuesday, November 25.
“Days of our Lives” star Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) was taken to the hospital earlier this morning after the star reportedly lost control of his car in Kingsville Township, Ohio. His passenger, Alyssa Tabit of North Hollywood, was seriously injured in the crash and is in critical condition, says Ohio State Highway Patrol.

“Days of our Lives’” Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker) and Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas) are personally inviting you to join them in Napa Valley, California for a special afternoon touring the Padis Vineyards!
As Soap Opera Network gets ready to celebrate its 13th anniversary on Wednesday, October 8, we are proud to announce that we will begin providing our readers with weekly ratings reports for not just the daytime soaps, but also talk shows "The Chew," "The Talk," "The View," "The Today Show 2" and "The Today Show 3," as well as game shows "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right," along with the previously reported ratings for "The Young and the Restless," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." The charts, which will vary week to week, does not take away from the weekly daytime drama rankings we will continue posting each week, but instead represents what daytime programming as a whole looks like when compared with one another and not based solely on genre.
