Every Sami pairing has at some point in time been a ratings draw. I don't see an argument for one over the other. I also don't understand why any person in the world would want one of their favorites (Rafe, Lucas, EJ) paired with Sami. At this point I think its just about winning the fan base wars rather than having the actual pairing be on tv. I can't stand any of those pairings at this point.
Personally, to me, If something IS working, why change it now? If EJami are working, use them, If EJole are, use them, If Lumi are, use them, & god forbid, if Safe are also, use them. I don't think it's a fanbase thing, maybe it, maybe it isn't, agree to disagree, but not EVERYONE can be or will be happy with what couples they get & if they don't like the product, don't watch.

I don't remember Safe being a big ratings draw, not saying they weren't I just don't remember seeing it.

They were mainly a Higley creation and DAYS was bleeding viewers like a knife to the jugular.

I just saw the GH promo, I don't watch GH but I was tempted (Todd Manning), then I saw the new DAYS promo and it was so bad it was comical.

If I remember correctly, the last time El Seņor douchebag Rafe & his Fembot were pimped by a writer, it nearly killed Days.

That new GH promo is better than any promo DAYS has put out. Even the ones we freak out about when they are first released. Also for being such a short promo it really kills DAYS' regular promos. Plus General Hospital went on location and from the looks of it it actually looks like golden age GH with Luke and Laura trying to save the world. Looks beautiful. I would kill for DAYS to be able to do that. Right now DAYS is killing it in the ratings compared to GH though, so people just like what they like. I don't understand it, but its working.

EJ & Sami were not featured very prominently that week. If anything Safe was, there was a lot more Safe than EJ and Sami were. Then there was lots of Wilson, Will/Lucas, and Will and Gabi scenes that were also very compelling. There was a lot going on that week. There is just nothing to base the claim that EJ and Sami are what helped the ratings. I fully expect them to go back down once the viewers realize that the Days of Sami's hoo ha are going to continue indefinitely.

Mmm....

Wait, wasn't this the week of Safe? I think EJ was stuck with Stefano. So don't see where Ejami comes in. But I agree, there was a lot going on last week and those that tuned back in after Disaster I think were mainly focused on the big event and Jack dying. Becuase we all know the ratings before that were in the 1.6's to 1.7's for a while. So it's the new interactions and the mixing up the characters and actually I think stuff moving along that's helped the ratings. I think most were just ready to see those "changes" that the writers talked about from what we've been subjected to over the last few months -- which has been Sami, Sami, Sami ad nauseam and her men folk.

Why on earth do the men love Y&R? It's crazy!
Not exactly sure of the "why" however I think for some of those men watching the women on Y&R being pissed-on like a common alley cat whore is must see TV.

Days is UP!!


http://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2012/08/ratings-great-week-for-daysyrbb

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,505,000 (+194,000/+92,000)
2. B&B 3,284,000 (+213,000/+357,000)
3. DAYS 2,771,000 (+72,000/+331,000) *

Wednesday: 2.2/2,859,000
Thursday: 2.0/2,719,000
Friday: 2.1/2,864,000
Very nice to see Days holding strong. Lets :pray: :pray: it continues.

It goes to show that EJami can STILL draw the numbers & Safe doesn't! :poof: :poof:
Kind of strange that you would say that because that was a heavy Safe week....and very, very light on Ejami....they were only on one day, the rest was Ej/Stefano heavy, Safe, Wilson, Wil and Gabi, Lucas and Will....you name it and everything else was happening...it was the balance and not the couples that caused the spike in ratings...I hate Safe and I can't stand Ejami but neither really proves to do anything for the ratings, it's the story....and nothing else.....also Stefano returning from the dead for the 1,000,000th time appears to do wonders for the ratings...same thing happened in 2008 when he returned....it's amazing....

How about the fact that there was drama last week with the fact Stefano was revealed alive and didn't Nick show up last week also. And all the Will and Sonny and Gabi drama.Will slept with Gabi last week didn't he but of course that couldn't be a factor right?

As far as Abc, they have always had good promos but for me GH is a huge piece of trashy garbage. The production, directing, and Acting are awful, the stories are retconned history. Throwing a few vets on screen hasn't improved it. Faster pace doesn't make it better but worst of all, it doesn't feel like GH. In all the years of Days awfulness, I've never felt Days was not Days.

When you get away from the Ej and Sami show the ratings go up imagine that? Rafe and Sami were on everyday discussing their feelings; the GA audience wants to see LOVE and SAFE is best at conveying love. And I agree with the other posters there was something for everyone ~
If Safe gets the credit for this week's boost, I assume EJami is retroactively being acknowledged for the ratings jump of the previous two weeks? And last November's? ;)

I am surprised at how well Days performed, because I was underwhelmed with Stefano's reappearance. It didn't feel like there was any real effort behind the explanation of his murder. Stefano announcing his death "didn't take" would have made just as much sense. :shrug:

Friday's ratings were exceptionally good, and I wonder if NBC will use those numbers to argue for retconning Will's sexuality, or at least making him bi.

I think the overall stories will get the ratings. RAMI may have shared scenes but story wasn't about them. Sami was trying to escape Rafe while waiting for EJ in a very sexy black dress. Just sayin.

Can we just agree that Sami and whomever she's with don't affect the ratings? Stefano's return on the other hand, did. Not to mention all the death and destruction and upheaval left in the wake of the Daysaster.

Wednesday had the highest ratings & that was the day of Jack's memorial was mentioned in the tv previews, hey maybe people tuned in to say good-bye to Jack. Also the daily tv previews didn't really mention too much about Safe or Ejami,
it mentioned many different people.
