What do The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Days of our Lives have in common? They all made this year's list of the world's most-watched television series.
Vulture recently released a ratings report spanning 18 countries including Australia, Argentina, Canada, Italy, and South Africa, and both DAYS and B&B popped up on the list of most popular shows from the period of January 1 through October 31 of this year.
B&B made it onto the list of the top ten most-watched shows in South Africa, with DAYS also making the list in spot number nine. Not surprisingly, B&B managed to land in the number one spot in Italy, as it has done several times in years past.
This is the first time DAYS has landed on the international top-ratings list, proving that the NBC soap's 50th anniversary has been much more than just a national celebration.
