The votes are in and Days Of Our Lives has won 'Parades' "Best Soap Opera of All Time"

"This week marks the 65th anniversary of the first daytime drama to air on TV: These Are My Children on NBC. Since then, dozens of soap operas have lit up the airwaves and caught our fascination, from The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful to Days of Our Lives and One Life to Live.

But which soap opera is the best one of all time? We asked for your help to crown the greatest daytime drama ever with a four-round tournament. First, we selected 16 of the most popular and long-running soaps to start the competition. The first round of voting on Sunday knocked out The Doctors, Passions, Search for Tomorrow, The Young and the Restless, The Secret Storm, Love of Life, The Edge of Night, and Another World. Monday’s round eliminated General Hospital, As the World Turns, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Ryan’s Hope.

That left the semi-finalists: All My Children, One Life to Live, Days of Our Lives, and Guiding Light. On Wednesday, the finalists, Days of Our Lives and One Life to Live, went head-to-head in a final battle. And the winner is:

Days of Our Lives! Days won with 62.4 percent of the vote, while One Life to Live put up a great fight with 37.7 percent.
