Days of our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that the NBC sudser is wowing in the ratings race, just in time to disappear from the network and force viewers to pay for the privilege of watching the decades old show.
According to Soap Opera Network, the other three daytime dramas were lackluster in the ratings game for the week of August 22-26, 2022. But the show that is about to make viewers open their wallets in order to watch, is the only one to show any gain in traction. Here’s what to know.

In actuality, DOOL’s numbers aren’t that spectacular when you consider the long view. The show posted numbers of 1.648 million/1.1 and but was down 74,000 total viewers from the same week in 2021. The show can only be seen on Peacock starting September 12 and gained 23,000 total viewers for the week.
It gained in the key demo of Women 18-49, putting them in a tie with the other three soaps. In addition, DOOL tied with General Hospital among Women 25-54.
The week’s storylines included Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) comparing notes about the night of Abigail DiMera’s (Marci Miller) murder, and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) taking home rookie cop Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu) for some love in the afternoon.

The Bold and the Beautiful dropped 96,000 total viewers for the week (2.888 million/1.9), meaning it was down an incredible 255,000 total viewers for the same time period in 2021. Additionally the show remained steady among Women 18-49, and dropped with Women 25-54.
During the ratings week, the show focused on the eternal, infernal, tired triangle between Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) and Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye). Obviously viewers are not pleased, but will the show exec’s listen?

GH dropped 157,000 total viewers for the week and down 92,000 total viewers from the same week in 2021 (2.010 million/1.4). The week featured Jordan Ashford (Tanisha Harper) warning Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr) about Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner).
Finally, Y&R (3.270 million/2.1) was in last place and lost the most viewers of the four soaps. This is not good—the show was down nearly a half million viewers from the same time last year, 422,000 total viewers.
Apparently fans are not digging the moldy plot about Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) besting his dad Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), nor boring, uncombed Chance Chancellor’s (Conner Floyd) ethical dilemma concerning the Newmans.
