All 4 soaps tied for #1 in Women 18-34...that is the first time in history that all network soaps on the air have tied for #1 in any demo.

SMH @ Y&R.

The show is capable of so much more. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Just when you think the show can’t get anymore hideous it does; the ratings are really reflecting it! Mar/Dar sweeps ratings wonder what they would be if it wasn’t sweeps!

Bravo Days! Well deserved ratings! Keep writing those captivating stories and keep focusing on the same privileged group of characters. I love being bored to tears by Rafe, Carrie, John, Marlena, Bo and Hope.

Days numbers are sad but what do you do when TPTB refuse to change anything. Im glad though that the one day I did watch got the highest ratings. At least my viewership counted for something, or so I like to think.

Day's numbers are just sad and depressing but not surprising.

Not sure anything can save DOOL at this point. They need to start taking some chances because their chances of redemption are just about over.

Days deserves these ratings. I want the show to be saved, but its hard to have hope when they recycle the same SLs year after year.

I don't get all the panic over these numbers, which aren't much different from what the show has been getting for the better part of a year and a half. The show is in no more danger than it was last week or even a year ago and, keep in mind, I still think the show will be with us for a few more years despite what has been going on with it. NBC clearly still has an interest in it.

These numbers, while bad for sweeps, aren't that bad. The show was only down a little from last week and a little from last year. I was expecting much worse for both Days and GH. This week can be a rough week for soaps, especially soaps that aim for younger viewers (like Days and GH). I've seen years where they suffer HUGE losses toward the end of the week on the verge of a holiday weekend (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, etc). Notice both Days and GH suffered their worst daily numbers on Friday when many were likely taking off for the holiday weekend. The CBS soaps skew older so they never get hit as hard when long holiday weekends factor in because their audience isn't as reliant on those who would likely take off for a trip over the holiday weekend.

Days is a HUGE mess but I would say these numbers are pretty good given that and given the week it was. I would say the show's been holding up pretty week given how bad it's been since MarDar came on.

I don't think they're that bad, but I do think they're funny. The show will be cancelled, but it's not going to be because of quality.

NBC primetime lineup on Thursday and Friday have comparable numbers to those of DAYS, that's what's really sad.

Except for Awake, thats not even remotely true at all - at least in the 18-49s demos, the actual ratings that count. Besides Awake, no other show dropped below 1.2, which while pathetic, is still close to double DAYS 0.7 this week among W18-49. We don't get to see A18-49 for DAYS, which would be worse than 0.7 because fewer men watch than women, so its fair to assume the comparable demos are more than doubled by Prime time.

The only prime time shows that got comparable ratings to DAYS were shows like Bent, Best Friends Forever, The Firm, Harry's Law and Awake - all of which were cancelled. The only other show with comparable ratings was Rock Centre, but that costs much less to produce.

Yeah, Income statements dont care about that. They only register 480,000 W18-49 watched during sweeps and that means much lower advertising rates (greater losses?) until next sweeps.

For all of you wearing rose tinted glasses, unless Tomsell can turn this ship around, there is no business case to expect DAYS to cheat death when all those Prime time shows could not. Especially since The Chew has not exactly tanked.
