    Wow General Hospital last; I wonder how the premiere of One Life to Live and All My Children next week on OWN will affect the rating?

  • James

    Well, all soaps up from last week and last year. GH not good in any demo really.

    The only good thing about the day time genre is that Prospect Park made that deal with OWN. So a 10 week summer test run for AMC/OLTL on cable tv. While it’s reruns from online run, new episodes be on hulu/iTunes.

    if gh would use its vets the show would do better in the rating in stead they keepgiving us chracthers like felix britt milo tj Sabrina Patrick to make a lo cost show abc either pay the bucks to the actors we want to see or let the show go it horrible . give us laura luke tracy monica heather Felicia anna duke bobbi and Robert along with sam micheal elisbeth alexis lucy molly and rafe abc gh has been good to you over the years its made you lots of money now pay it back by putting a little back into it . all the new chracthers frank and ron have brought on to the show are flops besides rafe.

    I agree with robert to a certain extent….
    GH has shown in the past that having vets front and center brings in higher ratings. But i think that the new and younger cast members could pull in decent ratings too if they had better storylines, most of them are quite predictable and not as creative as possible. I do like the ava and franco thing going on but it needs a bigger conflict. Also i really like kiki and michael together but i hate that they r cousins!!!! That is the worst way ron carlivati could have created a conflict for michael and kiki. Im lovin sonny and olivia and alexis and shawn scenes though! Keep them comin!

    Days has been great lately and they deserve those numbers! Very well done!

    AMC has been my soap the longest and i love that it’s back. I just wished it would air on own in canada!! But i cant help that!

    Overall my fav soap right now is amc then days and gh is last right now:/

  • LukeNoahFan

    So all four soaps together gained almost 700,000 viewers in comparison to the same week last year.

    The big upward trend is holding steady!!

  • Dee

    LOL at GH being 1.8. It may be SLIGHTLY higher-rated than last week but this show is still dying a really fast death!

  • tyrone

    Sorry robert but i like felix cant stand rafe and molly or sam and her mom. Give me more franco,ava, carly the Q’s remove olivia, lulu, dante, brit, i heard connie(thank goodness) is leaving bring back brenda, jax and heather and i think u have a good soap

  • tj

    Soaps up, GH pictured. Yes I noticed, thanks. My question is that when we do get the ratings for OLTL and AMC will they be included with these or as a cable shows rating? Either way I’ll be happy to see them. Any bets on whether OLTL and AMC will be OWN’s highest debuting show on the network to date?

  • Derrick

    Great all soaps are up!

  • j

    Days is really good.I like vets like Roman and Marlena and Abe will have screen time with upcoming s/l
    .Y&R has another spirit/ghost Cassie story,thinking it was bad to kill her off in the first place.I wish Y&R would end the the spirit/ghost stuff.John Abbott and Cassie should rest in peace.

  • moshane58

    Glad to see all soaps up.I think GH is better then ever.Don’t like they are letting Kelly Sullivan go.love her character.

  • Jill

    DAYS is finally getting its rightful spot and doing some good storytelling. I would agree that the ratings for DAYS will continue to rise!

  • Tony

    Soaps are as useless as Reality TV. They belong on the internet with all the other junk.

  • Mike

    It’s good to see the soaps up. Wish it had been more. Only Days recovered all it lost last week. Hopefully they will continue to grow and not drop again next week. Lately that has been the trend.

  • Heather


    You’ll never see the ratings of AMC and OLTL on this thread. They are internet shows, whereas the soaps on this page are broadcast network shows. It’s comparing apple and oranges.

    Even if the ratings AMC and OLTL on OWN do get to be available, they most likely will be included of a different thread than this one.

  • jonboyelk

    Unless theres a drastic improvement in the next week (which seems doubtful) this viewer is dropping back to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday viewing rather than every day. I’ve just been feeling that GH is a waste of time anymore and no longer interests me. We hail the vets, yet the show has never really used them other than as window dressing. And I can’t stand any of the characters portrayed by the former OLTLers. If I’m still dissatisfied I’m going to two days a week, then one, then so long GH. Such a shame. I had high hopes for the show.

  • cc

    Nice to see the numbers up on the soaps. A dying genre, my butt.

    Agree about too many newbies hurting GH. There are days you turn the show on and wonder wth show your watching. I think they had their best ratings when they were preparing for the 50th anniversary, with returning characters. That’s what most viewers want to see. I understand it’s a cost issue, but at what cost? Lose the viewers to save a few bucks?

  • cc

    Ooos, *you’re not your.

  • cc

    And that shoulda been oops.
