January 31 to February 4, 2011
Daniel and Melanie saved Jennifer's life after re-transplanting her heart. Abe and Roman placed Jane and Lee under arrest for the illegal trafficking of body parts. Stefano's plant in the Salem PD threatened Jane's life if she named Stefano as her boss. Dr. Walters seemed shocked that the police thought that he was part of the group killing off inmates for their organs. Carly and Hope shared a special moment and reached an understanding. Carly ended her relationship with Bo and urged him to make things right with his family. Hope's freedom was on the line and in the hands of the D.A. Victor seemed torn between whether to help Kate get Parker away from Chloe, or to heed Maggie's warning to say out of Chloe's life. Taylor arrived in Salem to visit Nicole, who was less than welcoming. Abe and Lexie invited Taylor to stay with them. Chad told Lexie of Stefano's recent indifference toward him. E.J. and Stefano kidnapped Rafe and put an imposter in his place. Sami and Nicole thought it odd that "Rafe" and E.J. had decided to become fast friends.

They had a huge bump there....all soaps did well but Days had double the gain of the rest on a week/week basis....

I'm surprised GH did so well.....I still like the show and watch it regularly but many people aren't liking some aspects of some stories now.

and don't forget hooking Chloe.....and druggie Carly.....seriously I can't believe that by the end of May of 2011, Days had lost about 700K viewers.....shows you just how fast it can happen.

This was the beginning of the end for the Higley/Tomlin regime though...it was all downhill from that weeks high....to nearly losing 1 million viewers 8 months later.

I think the 2011 bump was more about the time of the year than about the quality of the stories. Those numbers were great, but there were nearly 100,000 more viewers watching during the same week in 2010. I wonder if the same pattern of hitting three million in late Jan/early Feb held before 2010, too.

Holy crap! Days came really close to 3 million viewers on Tuesday. How cool would THAT have been?! I couldn't even imagine the last time they had over 3 million viewers. Probably the serial killer story, I guess.
The article says that they hit 3 + million in 2011.
It also said the baby was born last week.
My mistake. I meant the press release in the OP. And it is correct -

3. DAYS 3,030,000 (+244,000/-93,000)

DAYS
Monday: 1.9/2,667,000
Tuesday: 2.1/3,071,000
Wednesday: 2.4/3,567,000
Thursday: 2.1/2,937,000
Friday: 2.0/2,910,000

I remember there were huge snowstorms then. That's why the ratings were so good lol.

This is a random question, but what was the highest point for Days' ratings during the serial killer story? I know they went up pretty high. Didn't they come close to beating B&B for the #2 soap at that point in time?

^It's hard for me to imagine any soap having a 3.2 in women 18-49. That's nearly miraculous.

I hope the lesson Days takes from this isn't character-specific but about storyline. Whether I personally enjoyed them or not, it seems like they built much of the show around two stories with concrete beginning, middle, and end points (insofar as soap storylines end). And I don't think either of the big stories felt like there was a lot of interference with them, which is sort of...it's not the norm for the show for that past few years, imho. There was some WTF-ery, imho, in terms of character actions, but no reversals or abrupt left turns, really.

If they carry that concept forward...that'd be nice. Glad to see it paid off for them.

It's funny because now the only show that can get a 3.2 18-49 on NBC is "The Voice".
