Ratings Report for the Week of March 20-24, 2017
I hope when the time comes when soaps will be too expensive for Daytime because of people simply don't watching tv, there will be other platforms for them to survive. Heard some rumors about Y&R possibly going to CBS All Access in a couple of years.

DAYS is 100% in the danger zone of unrecoverable loss.
It is bad but March brings the bad ratings to all of TV. March and April usually suck across the board. It's been that way for the past decade. Even when a show is doing well, they usually fall pretty badly this time of year. Days was lucky they had that good week in last week's numbers. That was incredibly unusual and gave them one good week to stop the bleeding.

If this were happening during in the September-February time frame, I do think it would be hard to come back from. However, timing is everything and hitting record lows this time of year or even in the summer months is not really a big deal. The audience isn't always there so it's not like it's the stories driving them away. They are off doing other things and watching on demand, online, or on DVR if need be.

The show will be able to get themselves back up to where they did this past Fall but can they go beyond that? That is the question. Ron and co has to do something big come September. They need an event to spark things and build momentum. I do think the show will rebound a little and probably stay above 2 million for the most part heading into Ron's material because they will have the buildup to the murder mystery and certain stories ending but they can't afford to have a bumpy, slow transition period.
I know March-late April is a time of lower ratings...but this feels different to me...this feels like a true loss for the show.

We will see. By May we will have an idea how bad the damage truly is and if this show can even survive that type of viewership loss.
Other soaps are doing similarly bad. Especially, Y&R that is having even bigger losses, especially in the demos.
GH is the only show that is doing relatively well in w18-49.

If Days gets cancelled, with these trends other shows likely won't last much longer either.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deepY&R - Week March 20-24, 2017
=> Monday: 3.18/4,464,000
=> Tuesday: 3.01/4,244,000
=> Wednesday: 2.98/4,214,000
=> Thursday: 3.06/4,217,000
=> Friday: 3.07/4,390,000


I can't even remember a time when Y&R dropped below a 3
Wasn't it last week where they had 2 days below a 3?

The reality is all soaps are bad right now. None of them have a real compelling must see storyline and people would rather watch something else or do something else than be bored.
the only one seemly holding steady is that bloated GH.
there are no words for DOOL......its just not watchable at all.
B&B, I am tired of watching weddings, triangles and stupid crap. Everyone other week, there is a wedding.

oh snap, you are correct. During the week of March 6-10th, the daily ratings were awful.

Monday: 3.32/4,658,000
Tuesday: 3.06/4,315,000
Wednesday: 2.95/4,128,000
Thursday: 2.87/4,016,000
Friday: 3.05/4,316,000

GH is doing relatively well in W18-49. At least it has one interesting new character -Valentin and JPS has great chemistry with Stafford and Hughes.

even with the Sharon sighting.........the episode is a complete DUD
its rather disappointing for a Friday episode.
I only watched the Sharon clips that were posted online and only the Sharon/Scott clips. I have no interest in Sharon talking to that buffoon Dickolas.
that's exactly what I am planning to do......go to YouTube and watch the clips.
I'm gonna watch 3-31-16. One of my favorite first Philly scenes :wub2: .

I'm pretty positive they mentioned a propane tank.
They definitely mentioned gas.

When JFP was in charge, I thought she did a decent job. Was Y&R stellar? No, but it was boring or a hawt mess (and the ratings were decent). In fact, I thought she worked well with Pratt. However, when she left and Pratt was left to himself, the show turned into a shit show, lol.

I think Pratt and Young couldn't work together.

It was likely JFP who was selling Pratt's ideas to the network. When she left the visions clashed.

At least from ratings perspective Pratt and JFP worked well.

This is so bad. Chloe just looks at all the evidence and leaves where it is for people to find it? Why didn't she get rid of it months ago?

I really hope they bring Kristen back. It would make sense to have Eileen back. Bravo TV is owned by NBC Universal, so it would be great cross promotion for the Housewives and DAYS.
Eileen seems a little scared of "offending" SSM over at Y&R..or at least that's what it sounded like from Logan's last interview. Which is strange, because it contradicts her interview the previous year when she said she thought Kristen should return.

Who knows what's going on in her head. I'd love a return though. It's not like Ashley is doing jack squat over there.
Ashley seems to be getting more air time now and a possible love interest with this Ravi guy who seems to be copy of Sheldon from Big Bang Theory Lol
It doesn't seem she is getting more airtime. Her guarantee seems to be the same.

Wonderful. Now Phyllis is reduced to surfing the net. How thrilling 😆!

Hilary and Jordan are hot but no buildup, no story, no investment. I doubt it will lead to anything significant. Well, wtd but Devon will be the daddy.

Villy as their super couple and a bunch of ONS :drunk: :x

Good luck with your ratings, Y&R!

I'm not interested in any of their current stories.
It's as bad as was the second quarter of SA and JP on Y&R.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
Scott will probably be fired before the book is finished.
or Victurd is going to tie him up in some iron-clad contract that basically take away Scott's balls.
he wont be able to publish the book after Victurd's contract kick in place.

I can see that. Which is not that big of a problem because he can post all that material on a blog since Phyllis showed him how to use WordPress.

Just like Nick showed Phyllis how to create online dating profile lol.

I think it might be about how everything Victor did was about him loving his family :blulaugh:

he has some fucking nerve.
knowing he started the entire chess game to begin with.
if he hadn't brought back Chloe, this entire story wouldn't have happened.
Since Victurd will most likely feed Scott nothing but fiction, I figure Sharon and Phyllis, two of Victurd's victims that he's befriended, will give him the real scoop.
Will Sally "touch" Pratt's doppelganger story?
