  • GHFan

    GH is 4th place again.

    Hello writers, something isn’t working and we all know what it is!!!

  • Mike

    Good to see Y&R and B&B recover.

    Nice job for Y&R and Days up in every category.

  • Steve

    GH is up 240,000 viewers from last year and is 2nd in 18-34. The only place they are struggling a bit is the 18-49 which based on the 18-34 tells you that it is the 35-49 that are not happy.

    The fact that the ratings increased despite all the complaints about the Franco thing shows that there is interest in that story.

    Great to see all soaps up, we only have a few left so way to go toa ll 4 soaps.

  • Marissa

    My GH request: more Lucy, more Anna, more Laura. LESS Franco, Keke.

  • Derrick

    All soaps are up…………..
    Way to go Y&R, B&B and DAYS!

  • 4hourglass

    Tennis and now golf! What’s next, bowling?! Wake up NBC!

    Congrats go to Deidre Hall (DAYS Marlena), recipiant of a star on the
    Hollywood Walk Of Fame, in 2014. Well deserved! Are you listening NBC?

  • Bex

    Nice to see Y&R up again, the past two weeks have been pretty great.

  • Bex

    Steve, why is you same comment posted on SON under the name Dave? GH 18-49 demos have been declining since January, apart from the Nurses ball.

  • Mike

    The fact that Days was up this week shows that pre-emptions often have nothing to do with low ratings. They were pre-empted on Thursday and Friday which didn’t count but the biggest drop came from Tuesday to Wednesday when they lost over 300,000 viewers.

  • Jenny G

    Go DOOL! Love, love, it! Kristen is killing it!

  • Eddie

    DAYS is on a ROLL!!! Good job! The writing at DAYS is some of the best I’ve seen in over 5 years. Keep up the good work!

  • SG

    GH: bring original LuLu back and keep Laura in the storyline, hello!

  • moshane58

    Glad to see all are up.Glad Prospect Park has resolved there union problems and hope they go back to more episodes a week for online soaps.Loving GH.Hope soap fans stick by there shows and keep them going for years to come..

  • Steve

    GH’s demo numbers have not been declining since then Bex but you can keep hating on the show like your friends Richard and Mike.

    I’ve been reading the posts here the last couple of weeks and have seen them doing nothing but hate on a show they don’t like.

    Mike should concentrate more on his diabetes rather then his shows.

    And Bex don’t respond to my posts you c..t

  • j

    Nbc has a cable sports channel they should have golf and tennis on that.Then on the weekend use Nbc.Days is going so well despite the stupid network decisions.

  • jonboyelk

    Wonder when ABC is going to make some changes over at GH. Based on the numbers around the 50th they have to see there is potential for real growth but its just not happening. Some backstage shaking up needs to happen ie, writing. I want to keep watching but its becoming more difficult each day. With the possible exception of Rafe all the characters RC has either created or resurrected are completely unlikeable.

  • Bex

    Using multiple names is so juvenile. Someone needs to take a look at the monthly averages for GH, they have lost 100k. Moving on, as I don’t entertain children.

  • Bart

    GO “Y & R”!!!! 8c) Ratings are up from same period last year when that hack Maria Arena Bell was in charge!!

    Love what the new regime has done with the show!!!

  • 4hourglass

    I thought Bell was synonymous with good writing. Apparently I was wrong.

  • Mike

    Bex, don’t you recognize it. You know who is back.
