Sorry to be that guy, but with this (undoubtedly good) news, how long before Ken Corday suddenly decides the show needs a new lick of paint and Ron Carlivati is shown the door?

Lets hope soon!  But I doubt it. Ron will continue to write his mask stories.

I think Days is more successful than we think. It’s ratings are on par with some of the primetime shows they have and add in good streaming numbers and it’s probably good for NBC. The issue is Sony. Sony needs to do more with the Days property in terms of selling it internationally and getting the past episodes streaming and they should’ve been doing DVD sets for years. That’s money that they’re just sitting on and why Corday sued them. 
 

With this two year renewal I hope Corday works with Peacock (which is looking for hits) to do affordable spin offs. Those things they did on the Days app could easily be expanded into 8-10 episode hour long spin offs and I’m sure they would cost a fraction of the shows they’re doing now. These soaps can still be profitable and relevant they just need to put a little effort in. 

THIS.

Glad to hear this, the pandemic brought me back to Days to watch more often. I was about to write the show off for good with this latest round of negotiations tbh so I’m glad Days has been renewed for two years instead of the usual one with all the drama involved.

I'm so happy fans will have a year off worrying about cancellation

Same. The last time I felt any optimism for a soap’s survival was unfortunately  GL’s in 2009 which by that point I complacent and assumed at the end of the day GL would still get renewed despite the usual worriedness as I had grown accustomed to.

I'm happy for the cast and crew who work so hard, and for the soap genre - what's left of it, anyway.

Why?

 

It takes a rare kind of incompetence to lose nearly half million viewers during a global pandemic year when everyone was in front of their TV and screens.  But Ron, Albert and Ken did it.

Which shows gained an audience beyond the initial co-vid bump last year?

 

I assume that most "bumps" these days will also just show up on streaming either way. Most people I know haven't watched broadcast in the past year - they've been binging available shows.

Toups just posted May 3rd week ratings comparing total households to the same week a year ago. Days was the only show that didn't go into reruns; it had no soap competition for weeks. That was an unprecedented situation and yet in the last year they've lost 417,000 viewers. See below:

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 3,270,000 (+50,000/+929,000)
2. B&B 2,766,000 (+133,000/+932,000)
3. GH 2,216,000 (+113,000/+78,000)
4. DAYS 1,576,000 (-41,000/-417,000)

With Days being renewed for two more years, that means on Monday January 30, 2023, Days will have had a longer run than Guiding Light on US network television.

 

As of today, the 10 longest running daytime dramas on US network television are General Hospital, Guiding Light, Days, As the World Turns, Y&R, One Life to Live, All My Children, Search for Tomorrow (both CBS years and NBC years), Another World, B&B.
