    I wonder how those numbers compare with The View for the same week. Also, are they better or worse than As The World Turns? Does anyone know?

  • TimsDale4ever

    The 2.3 million and the .8 are about the same as ATWT in their last year — but CBS is looking at how much LESS they are having to spend putting on an hour of TALK vs ATWT. They don’t care that it’s a STUPID program. So sad where TV has gone — and even sader where it will continue to go.

    Thats why i ALWAYS WATCH & SUPPORT General Hospital…and i also BOYCOTT The Chew & the rest of ABC. GO SOAPS!!!!!

    Sucks and blows at the same time. They should put that in their press release. Their greatest accomplishment.

  • RJ

    If As the World Turns was still on the air, it would have lost another million or so viewers. Quit crying.

  • Pat

    ATWT should still be on the air, but it was in sad creative shape. As for The Talk , I’ll take it over 4 hours of Today, or Chew any day . CBS Daytime is in pretty good shape.

  • MBmomof3

    Pat, I agree CBS daytime is much better than the alternatives. At least their programming is more diverse and interesting than constant news/talk shows and a lone soap. I do miss ATWT & GL, but YR & BB are good soaps. I was an ABC fan until AMC & OLTL were cancelled. Now GH is the ONLY ABC show I watch.

  • Dallas

    It’s amazing how The Talk hasn’t gotten to 3 million viewers just yet and keeps bleeding heavily out of The Bold and the Beautiful which gets around 3 million regularly.

    ATWT the last 3 years of its run was getting in that upper 2 million viewer range. CBS could do better no doubt about it with another series.

    Thanks, TimsDale4ever!
