  • Derrick

    Wow Y&R…….What happened?

    Happy for DAYS and B&B!

  • hudson2647

    DAYS is on FIRE right now…. even better now that the whole Jennifer/Daniel/Chole saga is over, can’t wait until Anne takes over the scene. Hope needs a storyline and quick… I know Bo is gone, but put her in some kind of storyline… Keep up the great work DAYS!

  • Ryan

    I am a diehard Y&R Fan and love all the changes but it just feels a little slow since the wedding. Hope it picks up slightly.

    CONGRATS GH!!! The show is just a fun roller coaster.

  • Sean

    GO GH!!!! WE OWN THAT # 2 SPOT IN 18-49 NOW!!!!

  • TimsDale4ever

    Congrats GH on those impressive year to year gains….. Keep it up Y&R — that draggy, boring, repetitive dialogue about basically nothing you showcase over and over again, day in and day out is going to send more viewers away! That show needs to change it’s flat tire already so it can get up and get on it’s way.

  • kingzo ogboli

    I love days I was so happy with this ratings keep it up and also chrishell stause is joining days

  • rob60990

    Great week for GH. Monday and Friday were above 3 million.

  • rob60990

    I mean Wednesday not Friday.

  • moshane58

    since I watch Gh only glad to see this,but congrats to Days and would like to see all soaps a plus every week.

  • Marissa

    DOOL = drool. What a snoozefest!

  • Mike

    Good to see all the soaps still up from last year.

    Wow what big gains for Days. What happened big on there last week? I didn’t see any big headlines or big discussion on any boards about a major happening. Those are big gains.

    I don’t watch GH and have nothing to say about the content. But congrats on getting over 3 million for two days.

    Now if Y&R and B&B could come back up again, and all the soaps hold their gains. But we are entering spring and daylight savings time is here, and the last few years have proven to be up and down times for live plus 1 viewing. I’ve just come to expect anything this time of year.

    I expect most shows to be down next week. There have so many preemptions and interruptions due to the bombing, the Texas explosion, and then today.

  • PatF

    Y and R has been slower since the 40th Anniversary celebration, but the past couple of days the storylines are again shifting into gear. Heading into May sweeps, there should be a lot of good drama. Can’t wait.

  • Ann

    Days is really bad right now so this won’t last if the show continues with the crap they’re pimping these Days.

  • Deshawn

    I love general hospital it’s been on fire they need to put Kristina wagner felicia and Lynn herring Lucy on contract gh bting back Sean and Tiffany John Reilly and Sharon Wyatt and please bring back Tristan Rogers Robert but over all go gh I love you

  • Chrisann D

    Good for Days and GH!! Loving both right now. Thank goodness for my DVR!

  • Greg


  • Bex

    I agree with Pat and JNew this week has really picked up, and I can definitely see the build up – looking forward to May sweeps. And big congrats to Days they have been trying really hard to get back on track.

  • dave

    Great showing for Days! It’s real good right now and the ratings/fans are supporting good stories. Congrats to Days. Definitely worth the time to watch it!

  • Kevin A.

    Not surprised Y&R fell. I’m taking a break while they get their signature “lets talk about everything we’ve been through 2-3 times more using different words with different people, and the pointless chit chat, yawn fest,” out of the way. GH was far more entertaining with Carly and Brenda going at each other. Things will pick up (hopefully) for Y&R next week leading into May sweeps. The fallout from Lauren’s affair will be great, also Adam learning about Chelsea’s pregnancy.

  • Sophie

    I’m so glad for GH right now! It’s just been the best! I loved Days much better a year ago. with Jack, Bo, Carrie, and Austin on. It’s just so slow right now. I really can’t watch. Thank God for dvr’s SO YOU CAN ff. Don’t like Ejami at all. I think that’s why I don’t like it! Sami is just NOT my favorite, and they shove her down our throat’s! I’m trying to start with the Young and Restless. cuz I love Steve Burton!
