Pretty sure this is still the last time Y&R was knocked out of first place.

That was the last time Days was # 1 in the Nielsen household ratings...the week of July 25-29, 1988 (Steve/Kayla's wedding). However, YR's streak at # 1 started at the end of that year (the week of 12/26/88, I guess AMC/OLTL/GH came in at # 1 a few times between August-December 1988). Prior to the Steve/Kayla wedding week, the last time "Days" had been # 1 was the week of 3/11-3/15/74.


I don't have the Nielsen ratings chart for that week in July 1988, but here's what the ratings looked like a few weeks before, the first week of June 1988:

Daytime Nielsen ratings for the week of 5/30/88-6/3/88
Rank. Series...Rating/Share
1. The Young & the Restless...7.2/27
2. All My Children...7.0/24
3. One Life to Live...6.9/24
4. General Hospital...6.7/23
5. Days of Our Lives...6.4/22
6. As the World Turns...6.2/22
7. The Price Is Right 2...6.1/26
8. Guiding Light...5.7/20
9. The Bold & the Beautiful...5.1/18
10. Wheel of Fortune...4.9/21
11. The Price Is Right 1...4.7/20
*. Another World...4.7/17
13. Win, Lose or Draw...4.2/18
14. Santa Barbara...4.0/14
15. Loving...3.7/14
16. Scrabble...3.6/14
17. Classic Concentration...3.4/15
18. Super Password...3.2/12
19. Sale of the Century...2.9/13
20. Who's the Boss?...2.8/12
21. The $25,000 Pyramid...2.7/12
*. The New Card Sharks...2.7/12
23. Home...2.4/10
24. Ryan's Hope...2.1/8

And, for comparison, just 3 years prior to this, The Price Is Right (second half) was king and # 1 back in June 1985! They still, to this day, split Price Is Right into two separate half hours for ratings purposes, since the second half hour scores much higher than the first half hour.

Daytime Nielsen ratings for the week of 6/17/85-6/21/85
Rank. Series Network..Rating/Share
1. The Price Is Right 2 CBS..9.4/36
2. General Hospital ABC..9.2/30
3. All My Children ABC..8.7/28
4. One Life to Live ABC..7.8/27
5. The Young and the Restless CBS..7.7/27
6. Wheel of Fortune NBC..7.3/29
7. The Price Is Right 1 CBS..7.1/28
8. Days of Our Lives NBC..6.6/21
*. Guiding Light CBS..6.6/22
10. As the World Turns CBS..6.5/21
11. Sale of the Century NBC..5.7/22
12. Capitol CBS..5.5/19
13. Another World NBC..5.2/18
*. Scrabble NBC..5.2/20
15. The $25,000 Pyramid CBS..5.1/20
16. Press Your Luck CBS..4.7/18
17. The Facts of Life NBC..4.5/18
18. Loving ABC..4.3/15
19. Super Password NBC..3.9/14
20. Santa Barbara NBC..3.5/11
21. Ryan's Hope ABC..3.2/12
*. Search for Tomorrow NBC..3.2/11
23. Angie ABC..3.0/12
24. All-Star Blitz ABC..2.9/11
25. Body Language CBS..2.1/07

Wow....a 36 share for TPIR! That means over 1/3 of all TVs were watching TPIR back then. Cable TV was just starting to invade the network airwaves and hadn't yet taken too much of a percentage of the ratings back then.

Love ED, and so glad she seems happy.

For me, though?

Days > Y&R
Kristen > Ashley
Brady >>>>>>>> ANY love interest she every had on Y&R (and that includes Tucker, Brad, and Granddaddy Victor)

She got a H-U-G-E upgrade in leading men with Martsolf. The man is sexy as hell. And he's come into his own as a leading male. I just love them together, and I think it's been one of the best pairings Tomlin has created this time around.

It's a HUGE win. The actors really connect together. It was a gamble, but it paid off.

If anyone cares, I'm at the Days event in Orlando and will be tweeting anything I hear or see. I'm not going to the meet and greet stuff, but I'll probably pass by and make random comments about who's there and what they're doing. Depending on phone service, my plan is to tweet the q&a.

I'm intrigued about Blake's tweet to Freddie I wonder if Blake's tweet has anything to do with what they are taping coming up since Wally tweeted about taping in Salem on Monday. Could be something big is going down? Possibly custody related? Unless it's not even show related.
