    This doesn’t surprise me. The show is consistently hilarious (especially Sheryl and Julie), and each person talks while the others wait until they’re finished, unlike that OTHER daytime talk show that I stopped watching. The View sometimes sounds like a bunch of clucking hens when they all get going at the same time.

    ABC moving GH against The Talk has been good for it. In many areas The Talk airs opposite both GH and Days. Non-soap fans want something to watch so they choose The Talk.

    When The Talk was up against Good Afternoon America it’s audience was dropping. But The Talk has been on the rise ever since GH switched time slots.

    Where are the other talk show ratings.Hope the Talk is kicking ABC talker’s butt.GAA didn’t hurt the Talk.GAA was low and cancelled.It has nothing to do with GH opposite either.GH is higher now then ever.It has to do with the women on the show.The Veiw has to much drama anymore.Kelly has let the show go to her head.Wouldn’t watch that theif Mario no matter where he;s on nor fake Katie.Do have to say Sssoaps are a break,There are way to many talk shows on now.It use to be nice to watch them but now its like a non stop rerun all day long.To many takes the excitment out of them.Am glad The Talk is doing good.They do have the ladies who are not fake and think they know everything.

    The View and The Chew were both up this week too moshane. In fact The View is the #1 daytime program in 18-34 this week; it knocked GH back down to #2 in that category.

    Look at the ABC press release you’ll see where the other talk shows rank.

    And you might not like Kelly Ripa but her ratings are higher than GH’s right now. And they keep going up week after week too.

    I’m glad the talk shows are doing so well. I like variety in daytime especially since 3 of the 4 soaps are not worth watching anymore. Thank goodness that B&B is still good.
