You have to love ABC. Issuing press releases and silver linings even when they finished last overall and in the key demographic. I wish the other networks would follow ABC's lead.
Following are the Daytime Lineup Nielsen ratings averages, plus Top 5 Programs Ranks:
|Daytime Nielsen Ratings Dec 24-28, 2007|
|Total Viewers (Millions)||4.16||2.94||2.95|
|Rating/Viewers: Women 18-49||1.4/908,000||1.3/873,000||1.4/911,000|
The View was shut out of the top 5 in the key demo during "Christmas week" 2007, but ABC took comfort in week over week increases for all three of its soaps.
Top 5 Daytime Programs Women 18-49, December 24-28, 2007:
