Day of Our Lives and The Young and The Restless's approach to luring in All My Children fans!

With the ending of All My Children (on TV) this gave several soaps a chance to try and lure the fans over to one of the remaining soaps that they may not have watched. The only 2 soap operas that seemed to be thinking in this manner were the Sony soaps Days of Our Lives and The Young and The Restless. And what is interesting is the good and bad approaches each soap has taken to try and lure fans of AMC over to try their daytime drama on for size. Now let's examine the two approaches.

Days of Our Lives Approach
For DOOL they doubled down with 2 new co-head writers and an executive producer to save the ailing series from its lower than low ratings and bring the show back to what it was before Riley got his hands on it. They optioned for “ripped from the headline stories” that Agnes and Bill have preached about for decades over any sci-fi-you-have-to-really-suspend-belief-to-suspend-belief-to-believe-it storylines.

By going back to the basics and focusing on a cast of characters their core fans know and love, and by writing character driven storylines and bringing back the “love in the afternoon” feel that had all but been lost. They are opening up DOOL to a new generation of soap fans and lapsed AMC viewers, while pleasing their core base at the same time.

They are not telling you come back or drop by and give them a try. They are actually putting their money where their scripts are and proving it through excellent writing and writing to their actor’s strengths. READ MORE
