Here it comes again!!! For weeks, it has been "DAYS is great!", "DAYS is on fire!". But, as soon as the ratings slide downward, it's back to the old, "Days sucks!", "Days is not good!" BS!!

I don't think there's too much cause for concern. Ever since #priestsex, while the show has been good, there hasn't been much happening until this week with Sami being arrested. I don't think TPTB worry as much about ratings in the summer. It's September-March that they seem to be obsessed with. The "Sami Arrested" story is really just a summer story to keep things moderately interesting until autumn arrives. I think at that point you will really see stories kicking into gear.
Exactly. Honestly, all the soaps have been doing remarkably well this summer. I mean, are people forgettingt this is summer or something? Ratings usually tank for the soaps most weeks in summer especially for Days and GH in past years. Yes, Days had a huge jump last year for the Daysaster but that was only a 2 week period of ratings growth and they also did a huge marketing campaign and a huge cliffhanger to accomplish that. That is very rare to have a jump like that in the thick of summer and we are in that now. The fact that most of these soaps have shown stability and are up vs last year is amazing. GH started off bad in June but has rebounded a bit. Days had a fantastic June and even stayed stable the week of the 4th of July holiday and that is a week traditionally bad for most soaps but especially Days in past years. I don't see the negative here. Plus, while this is "sweeps" it's July. The networks know people aren't around the TV. It's summer. Sure, if the ratings increase, they are happy but they don't care right now. September-May they do. I mean, Corday even said as much a few years back in an interview that they don't get concerned over summer ratings. You won't see how well these stories resonate until Fall when they will likely pick up steam and climax. All we have to go on so far is June when these stories started and Days saw good ratings in June so it seems there is at least interest. And these ratings are for a week with minimal things happening. The show didn't pick up steam as far as story movement until Friday, which is traditionally a low ratings day anyway. We'll see what happens for this week, which has been amazing. Even if Days drops or gets no gains this week, I still think it's nothing. If it were the Fall or Winter, sure. In summer, no way.

Once you head into the heart of summer, if you can maintain most of your audience, take it and be happy. The soaps are doing that so there is really nothing concerning about any of this. Just my 2 cents from lurkdom.

For months, I have never thought Days was great. I might say, not a bad week. There are certain aspecs of it that I have been enjoying, and that is everything that has Nicole in it, which includes Ericole, and I did enjoy the break up of Bristine, and all that occurred after until they turned Brady stupid again. There are other odd scenes too that has been good, and it is due more to the skill of the actors involved than it has to do with the stories being played out. I certainly do not like their A story, and I hate how they write the characters just to fit their plots, and the ones that are obviously the writers favorites, are certainly not mine.

So true. It always amazes me (and this is not just related to Days but all soaps) how you see different people comment in a thread when numbers are down than when they are up. That includes myself tho too because I only find reason to really post when numbers are down or when I see a topic that is rather controversial but I'm also pretty much a lurker now by my own choice. It is pretty amusing. This week Days takes it's turn in the hot seat. If it goes up next week, this thread will be completely the opposite but I guess that only makes sense. Not everyone likes the show and that will always be the case. You can't please everyone and, therefore, when ratings tumble, those displeased will feel validation. It makes sense.

Exactly...I hate when someone lumps all of us that post here together....just because one poster is saying Days is great, doesn't mean that all the other posters agree with that person. I personally only find the show acceptable because it's sucked so bad since 2010. That is by no means an endorsement of the current writing....I have liked some things and not liked other things but for the most part I'm not jumping up and down and anticipating the show to begin, but I do continue to watch.

I hate it when fans make assumptions...the only predictable thing is that not all of us agree......but the fact is the show has seen a decline in viewership the last 3 weeks, and this week is the first week for real concern as both demos declined...that's it....

Days is so much better than GH right now. I honestly don't understand how GH went up...it's almost unwatchable for me. OTOH, I'm able to enjoy most of Days, even the characters who I don't care for, because I think the writing is good.

Though Im disappointed to see DOOL slip to fourth, they are still up from last year and havent lost hardly any of the audience that they have gained since May. Now if this is the start of a trend I would be worried. DOOL is TEN TIMES better than GH right now. That show is a joke with the new OLTL alum characters.

I must be an alien B&B it's so boring and bad written right now and it keeps getting up with the ratings
I must be one too---Days is a better show now that the Franco clusterfuck has engulfed GH, but GH gets better ratings. Go figure.
Maybe but unlike Days it doesn't turn me off. It's not just the s/ls but Days couples and love scenes are disgusting. I want romance, adventure...real suspense. I just don't get that from Days. And I hardly ever see characters I like, which also hurts the show for me.
So yeah these ratings seem correct.

And you think GH is bringing the romance? Cause IMO it is not. IMO the only couple who are close to being romantic on GH is Lante. Every other couple are either rushed, contrived,are in a triangle (ie. Kiki/Michael/Morgan-rushed/contrived/triangle, Quiz/Niz-triangle, Sabrina/Patrick-contrived and nauseating. I wouldn't even invest in a couple on GH cause RC can't write romance. And plus GH is now Franco Hospital :x .

DAYS is still watchable for me & I am loving the fact that we are seeing different characters interacting. The ratings will be up & down for DAYS, but it is interesting soap right now than others! IMO

All these couples you have named on GH I also find boring, and they have been featuring them a lot. I am no longer enjoying Lante either. I miss the old Lulu, But recent developments have piqued my interest, and that is Brit and Nicolas sharing scenes. I like them a lot. I hope in the end they do end up as a couple but, I hope they don't rush it. I want to enjoy the journey. Also Sonny and Connie/Kate I always liked and they are sharing scenes again , but unfortunately the lady that plays Kate/Connie will be leaving soon and I will miss her. She is such a good actress. I am curious to see what happens with this Franco story. So, while I was bored with GH for weeks, they are now giving me something, I am interested in seeing.

What I said was it doesn't turn me off. Dannifer sucks monkey balls, Bristen is Stoopid and EJ and Sami are fucking disgusting. I will say Wilson is about the only watchable one. I may not be a big fan of Patrick and Sabrina but it's a real romance. Dante and Lulu is too.. And there's great combos that are not couples in Britt and Nicolas , Liz and AJ...etc

Days have always floundered with their ratings. They need to free EJ from Sami because she thinks that she above reproach.
The only thing good about GH is Britt/Nik :wub:
B*B is full of wash/rinse/repeat storylines,
The Young and Restless is still putting out stagnant storylines :shrug:

DAYS is phenomenal right now and deserves so much more.

GH should be tanking right now.

I feel like I am in a parallel universe looking at these numbers.
