Thats twice, not "many times." Also, both those times had good stories. With the Bill/Laura SL, it was so well written and Bill suffered through a lot of turmoil all those years. I'm watching the old clips and I see why lots of people were/are fans...it was a good story written by one of the masters of soap writing, William Bell.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepNIELSEN RATINGS: WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-NOVEMBER 27, 2009

DAYS has been getting 1.7s- 1.9 all last year. Beastsex wasnt a watershed event. DAYS did get 1.9 before it happen:NIELSEN RATINGS: WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 26-SEPTEMBER 30, 2011
3. Days of Our Lives NBC 1.9/06
I dont care for SAFE and at this point I barely care for DAYS, but if you're going to say that EJ and Sami being together was some kind of ratings juggernaut, then the proof is not there. How about this past Spring and Summer? They were heavily featured, was it all 1.9s then?
(I checked that too...1.7s-1.9s...and a 1.6) http://www.jason47.com/days/ratings2012.html
The ratings will fluctuate between those numbers because at this point, I dont think no one couple, event, return, is going to have a sustaining ratings impact. In fact the only year consistently at 2.0s was 2009 (and it wasnt a EJ and Sami year.) ;)
Because EJ and Sami were in play too, along with Safe and EJole. EJ wasn't shown to be the Sydnapper until January 2010. Until then, anyone with any familiarity with soaps would assume that the parents would be reunited when their child was found. :shrug:
I disagree. EJole were the couple in love, SAFE were the couple in love. But it was a STORY...beginning, middle and end. People watched because it was entertaining. DAYS hasnt been entertaining in a long time.
If you want to go with familiarity, then no, soaps dont usually reunite a rapist with his victim.
Days has many times. My mom was a huge fan of the Bill/Laura/Mickey triangle, and Sami and Austin have been reunited as lovers several times in my lifetime. Besides, if the audience was offended by EJ & Sami, the demos wouldn't jump up when they finally share screen time as romantic interests. :rolleyes:
With Austin and Sami, she never got him. In the end, Carrie won out as how it should be. Sami was the villain in that trio and she never would win Austin. His heart will always be Carrie's.
The ZZZ EJ and Sami saga is written on toilet paper and has more holes then swiss cheese. No depth, no remorse, no growth, actually, it got worse after the rape, not better.
These redeemer/victim sl work when a writer takes care to craft a good story where not just the uberfans are going to like it. Most of the audience have to think its believable. That hasnt happened in a long time.
As for the ratings argument you make again, I have proven to you that no, EJ and Sami dont bring in consistent ratings, but you can think of however you want to think about the pairing you like. I just showed you the numbers. Agree to disagree...
