'DAYS OF OUR LIVES' EQUALS EIGHT-MONTH HIGHS AMONG WOMEN 18-49 AND 18-34

August 23, 2012

MATCHING ITS TOP RATINGS SINCE NOVEMBER, ‘DAYS’ TIES FOR #4 FOR THE WEEK IN WOMEN 18-49 AND TIES FOR #2 IN WOMEN 18-34

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – August 23, 2012 – “Days of our Lives” has returned from its two-week Olympic break to match the show’s highest women 18-49 and women 18-34 ratings in more than eight months.

For the week of August 13-17, "Days of our Lives" averaged a 0.9 rating, 6 share among women 18-49 and a 0.6 rating among women 18-34, to tie for #4 among network daytime series in the women 18-49 demographic and tie for #2 in the week’s women 18-34 race. The only network daytime series to top “Days’” 0.6 rating in women 18-34 last week was NBC’s “Today Show II,” which averaged a 0.7 from 9-10 p.m. ET

For the August 13-17 week, “Days” equaled the show’s highest women 18-49 and women 18-34 ratings since the week of November 21-25, 2011 (1.1 in women 18-49, 0.8 in women 18-34).

Season to date, "Days of our Lives" is tied for #6 in the women 18-49 category and tied for #1 in the women 18-34 demo.

Ratings reflect “live plus same day” data from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise noted. Season-to-date figures are averages of “live plus seven day” data except for the two most recent weeks, which are “live plus same day.”

I'm shocked. Quite honestly I was expecting the ratings to drop dramatically because after two weeks I figured most people would lose the habit of watching. Great news for Days!!

I'll be interested in the dailies and this week's ratings. Days usually does well with events like these but they struggle to maintain. They used to be able to stay doing well for a few weeks, but the last few times it's only been a day.

If NBC is doing a press release about Days, imo that's a very very good sign.

My fear is that if this is a very large spike and we don't know until the actual numbers come out that they will bottom out by Labor Day and lose the majority of what they gained in the next couple of weeks. That is what usually happens to Days when they gain a lot...they lose a lot weeks after....hoping they are able to sustain the gain, but if history proves anything, it's that they have a hard time doing that.

I was expecting a big jump for the return week, just like I'm expecting the return to the cellar that will happen within the weeks that follow, lol.

Well they got 2 in another category, but the point is that the Olympics didn't affect them, and the even larger point is that NBC is writing a press release touting the ratings of a show which many have been wondering if they even care about in the first place.

Great news! I thought the two week break might have been a killer - it's exciting to see that wasn't the case. I can't see where this is anything but fantastic news for DAYS. :D

That's not usually how it works - people "forget" the show that wasn't on and start to watch something else. It's usually a steep hill to climb to get back up to even where they were when the break started. So this is good news.

Its all of daytime, not just soaps. I have no idea where they normally rank though.

They've been featured a lot together the past 4 months and have been front and center and the ratings haven't been all that great.

And if I'm reading the press release correctly they aren't saying they tied for 4th amongst other soaps but when compared to all network daytime programming - hence the reason the Today show was referenced.

They can't tie for 4th in soaps anyway.

No. II is the third hour with Natalie Morales, and III is Kathie Lee and Hoda.
