Ratings, Rants and Raves: Soaps Didn't Find The Nielsens Wishbone Thanksgiving Week
DAYS went down 72,000 total viewers over the previous week. The NBC sudser also fell in households and among W18-49. Among W18-34, DAYS went up one-tenth of a point.
John (Drake Hogestyn) was livid at Marlena (Deidre Hall) for deleting Kristen's (Eileen Davidson) voicemail about an injured Brady (Eric Martsolf). Father Eric (Greg Vaughan) convinced Nicole (Arianne Zucker) to make amends for her nasty stunts. Lucas (Bryan Datillo) decided to stop stick-blocking WilSon (Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) got good news about Caroline (Peggy McKay), which meant Bo might be coming home soon.
I really don't know what to say about DAYS at this point. The cast is stellar, but the storytelling is beyond anemic. When you compare how GH is executing their big ticket returns to the way DAYS is doing it, you're left scratching your head. On GH, Cesar Faison (Anders Hove, Ian Buchanan) is impersonating his obsession's great love. On DAYS, Kristen is leaving voicemails. I give up.
