DOOL's ratings sink farther

My advice, fire Tomlin, Higley, and whomever else is writing this crapfest.  Oh, and create a murder mystery by killing off Rafe!  To be honest, I haven't watched this show in over a week.  I just can't do it.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

  1. I agree kill Rafe!!! and his siblings!!!

  2. A standing ovation to TPTB for killing the show one week at a time.

  3. I have gotten to a point where I am just about ready to take this off of my DVR again.

    Between the constant pimping/propping of Rafe (Salem's very own Super-Hero! Barf!), and TIIC toying with the audience - by allowing Ejami to keep coming within an inch apart, yet not allowing them to kiss, well, I just can't stand this contrived stupidity any longer!

    The other things that are bothering me are the Stephanie/Nathan and Chloe/Dan storylines. The writing is really starting to remind me of Reilly's last stint on DOOL - because of how things are being drawn out, ad nauseum, and all of the Red Herrings that are being dropped everywhere. As an example: There was no reason why Melanie could not tell Maggie about Stephanie's dumping of her Birth Control Pills on today's show. That omission to Maggie (by Melanie) was brought about for no other reason than to drrrraaaagggggg this "Stephanie Traps Nathan" storyline out for the next three years! The same thing is true with the Chloe/Dan storyline. Everyone in Salem will know about her and Phil sleeping together, except for Mel and Dan, and they will not find out for another couple of years (at least). After all, Chloe has to turn up preggers first, and then she can't reveal her little ONS with Phil because the pregnancy will be high-risk - and she, of course, will not be able to experience any stress for the duration of said pregnancy. Not a spoiler - I just have a funny feeling that this is how things are going to go down.

    Mostly, though, it is Super-Rafe that is annoying me. I hate, hate, hate the way he bullied (and held against her will) Anna - and now he only wants her to wake up long enough in order to give him his precious "name" that he is so desperate for. Truly sickening! I was also furious with today's episode - between Rafe ORDERING the doctor to wake Anna up (out of a freaking COMA, and he is not even her next of kin - how does he have ANY say in her treatment?!?) and Will whining like a ten year old about how his mother ruined his life (and Algebra Grade) by losing Super-Rafe. Also, let us not forget how little Johnny coveted that dumb-ass miniature FBI Jacket, and spent the better part of at least two episodes "arresting" E.J. Anvil-dropping, anyone?

    Since when is Rafe so damn important to Will?!? Will has a father, who he has a great relationship with/loves very much, but you would never know it by the way they are writing this garbage!

    All of the writing, as of late, is nothing but pure, unabashed, agenda-driven contrivance! Until they get their act together, and put Highley back into her closet, I am afraid that the ratings will continue to hemorrhage!

    I know that I can't take much more!

  4. Ejami is finally sort of happening today was better but methinks its too late if Rafe & Sami reunite I won't watch at all after Alices' funeral

  5. i don't blame you for not watching days lately. the show i use to love is simply plan ass fuckery. ken desperately needs to divorce himself from gary, dena, and christoper. all they are doing is bringing the show down further since they have gotten this renewal. the show will probably climb back in the ratings or demos once the alice's memorial starts and ends then after that it will be back to the stupidity. i want real writers and a producer who loves days and don't want to see it fail any further come in actually fix it and not when it's in the danger zone. this show is missing so many elements many grew to love and now the ABC are emulating. such a shame to see days is waving hello at atwt.

  6. I think the stories are stale on purpose it will be moving after the farewell to Alice but come on Days it was a sweeps period !!! The stories will pick up for July sweeps but i still don't understand this strategy...

  7. Seriously can think of 7 characters that just need to be written off the show and no longer around at all Rafe and both sibs Stephanie and Nathan Chloe, I am willing to give Jessica Tuck a chance because she was very good on One Life To Live back in the day but that storyline isn't working...I am hoping that something can happen with Ej and Sami but pretty sure that as soon as anything comes close to happening Rafe will come back and ruin everything... if they want a triangle bring back Lucas

  8. I wonder if there's an "out" clause in DOOL's renewal agreement because with those horrific numbers NBC must be itching to pull the plug NOW.

    The shitty writing and stalled storylines cannot be blamed on the Alice/Frances memorial alone. A competent writing/production team could have handled the disruption without tanking the show.

  10. EJ and Samie can take a hike along with Rafe,his siblings,and the whole teen set,Stephanie (she is just to stupid to be Steve Johnson's daughter) and Melody. It is at the point, the only characters that I can tolerate are Roman, Bo,Carly, Anna, Calopie, Abe and Lexie. I used to like Hope, but I think she got what she deserved from Bo although he should have signed the divorce papers first. I used to love to hate Samie, now I just can't stand her without Lucas. I hope that they decide to keep Lucas,Carrie and Mike. Finnally, they should have kept Tony and killed EJ.

  11. I can't believe DOOL isn't rated number one as many times as they show Nadia on the show. She is the best actress on DOOL and in daytime television for that matter. She is my ho. xoxoxo

  12. Days blows. My gawd it is a wasteland of crap. Stephanie, Nathan, need a brain. Carly needs to die and die soon. Melanie needs a lobotomy.Philip needs a haircut. He is a handsome guy underneath, but maybe get some sleep once in a while. Looks like JKJ stays out a little late.

  13. I thought CC was supposed to be Days savior?

  14. "I thought CC was supposed to be Days savior?"

    Who said that besides The Douchebag? It's moronic because everyone knows that no one actor or storyline can make or break a show.

    In fact, the ratings were considerably better earlier on when Carly was in front-burner storylines with Bo and Melanie. For the last couple of months, she's been reduced to the status of frumpily dressed supporting player in the Danloe crapfest. Her disgruntled fans must be tuning out in droves.

  15. Super-Rafe has spread over this show like a cancer. His useless siblings are like the cancer spreading to other organs. The LoFitzes add nothing. The characters, particularly Rafe,are a flop. He has no charisma, no chemistry with ANYONE, and ruins what enjoyment might have been had from watching great characters like Anna and Shane. Days needs to cut out the disease before the cancer spreads to the bones and kills the show once and for all. I also agree with whoever said that if the show must have a triangle for Sami, they should bring back Lucas. EJ and Lucas were great together in their scenes, more enjoyable even than watching either EJ/Sami or Lucas/Sami. What an idiotic move by TPTB in wasting and then firing Dattillo.

  16. You are right,Lucas should never have been let go. They (tptb) should admit their mistake and fix it!
