Not a good week for Days at all, although they've been losing viewers for 3 straight weeks now, this is the first week that both demos were affected. This week was a good week but I wonder if some of these stories aren't resonating with the rest of the audience like they are with us. They are back to 1.8, and 1.7s...lets see what this week's numbers bring
I think you hit the nail on the head about the stories not resonating with the audience. IMO the Wilson and Wabi baby stories were a big part of the reason for Days higher ratings. Now those stories aren't front and center anymore. I think many are bored with the Bristen story and don't really care about the Sami story and that's what seems to be front burner for summer. I do like JJ and Jennifer, but it isn't enough to override the other garbage for me.
I suspect the month of August is going to be a bad month for Days. Not only did Days do rather well last year when the show came back after the Olympics, but it has sustainable growth the couple of weeks after they came back. For the week of July 23 (which would correspond to this week's ratings when they come out) Days had 2,481,000 total viewers.....the week of August 13 (when they came back post Olympics) they had 2,699,000.....let's see what happens....I've been trying to say this all along, Days might be better now because the show was shit last year and the year before...
