Ratings, Rants and Raves: More on DAYS' Ratings Spike; Still Not Feeling GH's Connie
Salem, U.S.A. was the place to be the week of Jan. 14-18. Not only did NBC Daytime's Days of Our Lives soar among women 18-49, the sudser also hit a two-year high in total viewers, according to ratings posted online by Xavier Toups.
DAYS went up 209,000 total viewers over the previous week. Year-to-date, DAYS was up 246,000. This was a new high for the head writing team of Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell.
DAYS went up two-tenths of a point in households. Among women 18-49 and W18-34, DAYS went up one-tenth of a point.
On Gabi (Camila Banus) and Nick's (Blake Berris) wedding day, Chad (Casey Deidrick) revealed to everyone at St. Luke's that the pregnant bride was lying about who her baby daddy is. The Salemites were further shocked when Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Lucas' (Bryan Dattilo) out gay son Will (Chandler Massey) was revealed to be the champion stud horse who sired the fetus in question.
Finally, my fave of the daytime soaps still on the air isn't disappointing me. Here's hoping Ken Corday, Greg Meng, Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell can keep it up! I go more in depth about DAYS' turnaround here.
