Jackée Harry teases "Days of our Lives" debut, shares that her character is going to be "bold" and "fabulous."

A full breakdown of the demographics that make up the total viewer numbers for daytime soaps, game shows and talk shows.

Eight years after their cancellations, there's renewed talk of a second reboot of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," this time returning to ABC or another iteration on Hulu.

Where does your favorite daytime show stack up in terms of popularity across the nation, sorted by state? Here's a quick guide!

With the Megyn Kelly drama now behind the network following news of the former FOX News Channel journalist taking over the third hour of "The Today Show" with her own new morning program, NBC has finally made a decision on the future of NBC's "Days of our Lives" and it's a positive one.

After a <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2015/12/daytime-ratings-the-view-is-least-watched-season-to-date">tumultuous fall season</a>, ABC's "The View" seems to be turning things around. The daytime talk show beat competing "The Talk" during the week of January 4-8, 2016 in Women 18-49 with its widest margin of the season. "The Talk," however, beat the "The View" in both Total Viewers" and Women 25-54.

After <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2015/12/full-daytime-ratings-adults-18-49-breakdown">reporting</a> how daytime stacks up when looking at the Adults 18-49 demo as used by primetime advertisers, one has to wonder what daytime looks like in the actual key sales demo of Women 18-49 when it comes to the season-to-date rankings. What's surprising is how poorly "The View" does overall, and how well "General Hospital" is actually doing when factoring in the Live+7* numbers vs. the traditionally reported Live+SD** numbers seen here on <em>Soap Opera Network</em> each week.

As we prepare to publish another week's worth of ratings covering the daytime soaps "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless," we felt it was worth noting the difference between daytime and primetime when it comes to demographics as part of a year-end report.

As if being the most watched daytime drama series for more than 25 years wasn't enough, CBS Daytime's "The Young and the Restless" has placed fifth on Bing's Top TV Show Searches for 2014, just behind TV's hottest primetime series, AMC's "The Walking Dead." "Y&R" beat out the likes of E!'s now defunct "Chelsea Lately" (#6), NBC's "The Today Show" (#7), HBO's "Game of Thrones" (#8), ABC's "The View" (#9) and FOX's "American Idol" (#10).

As the polls close in some states, and prepare to close in others, it might come as a surprise to learn which of your favorite television shows may appeal more to those who share a different political viewpoint from that of your own. In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that <a href="http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/graphics/2014-most-tv-campaign-ads/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">followed political ad spending</a> on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that "General Hospital," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Talk," "The Steve Harvey Show" and even "Judge Judy," among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as "CBS Sunday Morning," "NBC Nightly News," "Nightline," the Sunday editions of both "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show," and even game show "The Price is Right," aired more Republican ads.

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.

With her “Today Show” and “The View” gigs behind her, daytime personality Meredith Vieira is embarking on the next step of her career: She’ll be hosting her very own talk show on NBC!
