The uptick for the EJole on 12/28/08 wasn't for EJole, if you want to get technical.

Over a period since 1990, in the majority of ratings, Days has always gone up around New Year's Day regardless of storyline. The reason: people are at home with the family and tune into something familiar, a tradition.

Week of:
Dec 23, 1991 5.2
Dec 30, 1991 5.9

Dec 21, 1992 4.6
Dec 28, 1992 5.3

Dec 20, 1993 5.9
Dec 27, 1993 6.3

Dec 19, 1994 5.3
Dec 26, 1994 6.1

Dec 22, 1997 5.1
Dec 29, 1997 5.9

Dec 21, 1998 4.7
Dec 28, 1998 5.1

Dec 20, 1999 4.3
Dec 27, 1999 4.7

Dec 18, 2000 3.9
Dec 25, 2000 4.3

Dec 24, 2001 3.8
Dec 31, 2001 4.2

Dec 22, 2003 3.2
Dec 29, 2003 3.5

Dec 19, 2005 2.7
Dec 26, 2005 2.8

Dec 24, 2007 2.1
Dec 31, 2007 2.3

Dec 22, 2008 2.1
Dec 29, 2008 2.3

Placing ratings blame or credit to one couple is a dangerous thing on both sides.

People want to see good stories that have payoff. I haven't watched in a month and don't plan on watching again. They lost me as a viewer and I'm not tuning into another soap opera. I just don't watch them anymore.




Excuse me but I was quite clear in my ORIGINAL post that I was only placing markers net to the weeks so that you can get an idea of where a storyline was at. In no way was I implying that any one thing raised the ratings for the week. I posted such a long period of time to focus on THE VIEWING TRENDS OF 'A STORYLINES'

Now I only bullet pointed the following to give you an brief timeline of what was going on. Most people, IMO, have their faves but generally follow storylines. With a strong storyline in place, The Baby Switch, we've lost faves like Jarlena and Tanna and yet the ratings have not fallen.

In the recent past we've had Touch my Thighs, Tina Lau, The Vendetta and Santeen, Crazy Ava, John Black's back, Who Killed Professor Robbins and the AFP (I'm sure I left some out). Currently we have Phinnie/Phelanie, Safe, Dan/Chloe/Lucas, Ejole and The Baby Switch.

Maybe the uptick in the ratings is GG and EM being on the show or maybe it is Safe or maybe people like EJole and the baby switch.
