I knew Days wouldn't be able to retain the viewers they gained. They'll see even more drops in the next two weeks. Spoilers seem to indicate that there's nothing worth watching coming up.

When will Days learn? Stunts and shocks work on a very, very short term basis--then when they're over, viewers tune out. Sadly, I no longer believe the current HWs are capable of delivering on their promises of character-driven stories that would make people care about the show on a ongoing basis.

This makes me sad. I loved Wed, November 30th - Jack and Marlena's first therapy session. And Friday, December 2nd - Will's tantrum after Gabi breaks up with him.

But I think part of the problem is that the GA doesnt know those great episodes are coming - so they don't tune in. There isn't a build up - just one day a gem of a scene(s) suddenly appears out of a misty/dull week.

The Ejami sex week brought ratings, but that also had week long build up and tons of marketing/buzz. The Jack and Will breakdowns weren't built up or advertised. I did see the promo for Will's "bad week" - but the promo didn't do the scenes justice. I waited the following week before seeing the taped Friday episode (because I had some time to kill) and was then pleasantly surprised to not forward the teen set. That was the first and only time I really enjoyed them.

With Will calling out Sami during the tree trimming - MarDar show they can write some good soap. But everything else this week has sucked. Why are they so spotty? I think consistency is the key to sustained improvement in ratings.

I know I am only tuning in to see one or two characters or scenes. But that kind of viewership won't save DOOL. The entire show has to be consistently good and interesting. Get the fans to tune in for their favorites and then get sucked into watching the whole show. That means good long story - not just a few powerhouse scenes every blue moon (as we may blink, or fail to wake up or tune in, and miss them)

I figured this would happen. Days pulled a stunt for the last week of sweeps, then immediately went back to the same old shit. I did enjoy Jack and Marlena's therapy session and Will's tantrum but I think Days has burnt so many of their viewers now that they aren't going to be sticking around to get burnt again. I can relate since I feel that as a JnJ fan the writers are giving me a HUGE :flipoff: :flipoff: every time I tune in.

I think the only reason they gained that week was it was holiday week. People were at home, but when you look at the numbers, they are not really impressive. I knew DOOL would tumble this week. Stunts that have nothing to do with character growth are worthless, especially when they ruin characters.

I'm glad you said that about the holiday week. It would seem that perhaps an audience is out there, though, so maybe Days should try some new stuff before it gets canceled and they have to try and make that work to stay alive.

If it's not holiday-related, I'd be more apt to say that people didn't like what they saw during the prior week, hence the dip. It's tough to pin ratings to storylines though, imho, on a week-to-week basis whether they get the credit or the blame.

They doing the same stuff they did before so makes sense ratings are back to what they were before. I sure hope Days didn't expect ratings to stay up. The know the ratings their crap gets. The lesson is to NOT write fluff/crap and carry on the same storylines/pairings the audience has repeatedly rejected (via the ratings).

I was certainly one of the 18-49 demo group who did not bother to watch last week nor have I bothered this week nor do I see any reason to bother anytime soon. You want my viewership, you have to deserve it. Stop beating dead horses is your first clue on how to deserve it.

Interesting. I keep hearing that Y&R sucks, but they are still the number one soap. So what does that say about all the other soaps that are trailing in ratings?

I saw an old promo on YouTube years ago from the cast of DOOL - thanking the audience for making them the top rated soap that week. It featured Patch/Kayla and Jack/Jennifer. I wonder if that was the last time Y&R was knocked off their perch.

Why isn't KC trying to have Days emulate that time - rather than hiring JER/Passions folk? And why fire a great producer who learned from a master, who came from the top rated Y&R? Maxam made DOOL look so much better. I don't get it. I am not looking forward to DOOL looking cheap and laughable again.

Days stinks for me. I have barely watched in the last three weeks, and I watched a lot of the Higley junk.

Days got an expected bump due to the holidays/Ejami sex stunt. But the actual stories, if you can call them stories, are terrible.
