See? If they never had to count Friday, the show would be doin great.
Any idea as to why DAYS takes a hit on Fridays and other shows don't? (well at least not this week...)
In recent years, all the soaps would regularly see one of, if not their lowest, numbers on Fridays. Days would see the worst drops and I recall GH would often see bad drops on Fridays too.

I think it comes down to what young audience the soaps have don't watch on Fridays and the numbers are even worst around holiday weekends. They either DVR, watch online when they can, or don't watch at all. Days seems to suffer the most from this. People, especially the younger they are, only watch when it's convenient. It's hard enough for people to tune into a primetime show, which airs only once a week, so it's no wonder a soap that airs 5 days a week has a hard time getting consistent viewership 5 days a week, all year round.
