  • Sedgrick

    Wow big decreases but so glad Days hold 3 place.

  • platypus Perry

    Too bad they all dipped again. I’ve been sooooo busy the past month I know I missed a good 4 weeks of Days of our Lives :(

    Im just hoping rebound next week.

  • Monzo

    I love GH but after this New-Franco-Mess they deserve a drop. Every episode without Franco is a good one. Silas is the best of those three returning OLTL-stars, while Kiki would be better without a father.

    B&B is so boring and weak to me, but viewers don’t seem to mind.

    I thought Days would be stronger, but maybe viewers aren’t much hooked on Kristen’s stupid moves and Sami’s next prison storyline.

  • hugo

    Pretty good numbers in the key demo for DAYS, especially compared to last year. I guess the Emmy win helped.

  • Mike


    Glad to see that B&B and Y&R are still up big from last year. Still a bad week.

    Days at least saw gains in the 18-34. Only soap to see any gains this week.

    Shocked on looking at the dailies Friday was really rough on Y&R, B&B and Days. Haven’t looked it up but all three of those are really low dailies for all 3 for probably awhile now.

    And this has to be the first week in a long time (if ever) that GH did not hit one day over 2.5 million.

    There weren’t any big pre-emptions this week for any of the shows. No sports breaks, no big news stories, etc. But you have normal summer vacations, etc. that keep people away from the TVs this time of the year.

    That can definitely factor into ups and downs this time of the year. Just have to hope for a recovery of some kind next week.

  • Derrick

    Wow for Y&R, B&B and DAYS!!!
    Hope it increases next week!

  • GHFan

    Where are all the OLTL to live fans that were supposed to watch GH when they brought the infamous 3 back? These actors aren’t worth the trouble it’s caused GH. Lawsuit from PP, abrupt exit of starr, todd and john, only to re-introduce these actors 2 months later, on the SAME day, as 3 new characters. Who thought that would be a good idea?

    Newsflash writers – GH has way too many newbies 11 – in the last 10 months!!! Write for GH not newbies.

  • moshane58

    Why do we never see DVR ratings on soaps.It would show when people are gone they are still watching.Even if I watch live I still DVR it.I’m loving GH.Think is has been alot of different storylines going on.Hate they are letting Kelly sullivan go.Really love her character.

  • PatF

    Wow…wasn’t expecting that!

    GH’s 18-49 number is scary.

  • Tony

    If this means these stupid shows will get cancelled faster, then this is good news. The Daytime soap is dead.

  • cc

    Agree GHFan, too many newbies is killing the show right now.

    As long as Sami lives on Days, I will never tune in again.

  • NBC is awesome

    GHFab, I don’t agree about newbies. New characters are good and always welcomed by me. I hate when story lines revolve around old, tired characters (Carly, Sonny, Elizabeth). I really enjoy some newbies (Britt, Ava), while others not so much (Felix).

    This franco thing is horrible. Kill him off and bring RH back as a new character.

  • NBC is awesome

    Tony, “The Daytime soap is dead”, just like your brain?

  • NBC is awesome

    Soaps need to stop living in the past.

  • Cath

    How many of the story lines on GH are compelling? I am thinking…Luke’s poisoning but that is only because he is leaving for his vacation. Love to watch Luke and Tracy. They could be the whole show.

    Teen angst is just uninteresting, especially since I have a hard time believing that TJ and Molly are so in love. No chemistry. Kiki and Michael’s attraction is interesting. Don’t see Kiki and Morgan pairing either. No chemistry. Elizabeth and AJ have no chemistry either.

    GH, in its prime, used to draw us in and we couldn’t wait for the next day. I turn it on now but some days I just turn it off after the first ten minutes since I pretty much know what will happen for the rest of the show and just don’t care.

    Another “tampered with” paternity test…really…GH should lose its accreditation.

  • tj

    So when the ratings are up the picture above is Y&R or Days but when the ratings are down the picture is of GH? I’m not hating but it’s been a constant thing here.

  • aTS

    A HW and EP change would help GH. It’s time for ABC to step in and fix this mess.

  • Monzo

    About DVR: 80 % of those official numbers (Live+SD) are live viewers. +7 increase of Live+SD is just about 10 %. I think the reason why +7 numbers aren’t pusblished often is obvious.

  • Bex

    Too bad that Y&R had a bad week, I thought the past three weeks have been really great. I’m hoping for a swift turn around.

  • Bex

    I guess DOOL fans won the battle this week, GH grinding the bottom steadily in four out of the five categories. This won’t sit well with our little GH Stormtrooper.
