I was astounded to see a few weeks back some 2.2's/2.3's in the dailies. That is so good it's baffling...and that is usually the week people went back to work/school after the Christmas/New Year breaks. That was also the week of the polar pig or vortex or whatever the hell they called it but even with the decline last week the show didn't do so bad and this week they are back up. I think it's more about the shift in stories this January than anything else. I also think the lack of detailed spoilers is helping the show..maybe even removing the day ahead from Canada did the trick too....last week also had the news of AS leaving breaking...that could have helped too. I expect a an average ratings increase throughout 2014...slow and steady IMHO, with the show gearing up for Sami's exit, KDP coming on board as Eve, Kristen returning, etc I do expect momentum to continue through the majority of 2014 with a slow down this summer as always.

The weather may have helped but if people weren't seeing something they liked, they wouldn't have come back for more! By Friday DAYS was still holding strong. I love seeing all 2's--and knowing there was good stories to go with that! People have been more upbeat about DAYS than they have been in a very long time, which is especially amazing after the bummer year we just had in Salem when many of us tuned out.
I think the weather is only a factor this week because it was the factor LAST week that brought them down.
As one of the viewers who has tuned out, though, I gotta tell you that despite us tuning out last year, they were still getting good ratings. That's actually what makes these ratings so good, IMO. They're up over last year, and last year's ratings were also up over the year before. The show has been on a steady incline for a while now to the point that 2.0s are now almost considered low again. That's kind of amazing.
