Versus last year’s 6.5 million viewers, the 2014 telecast was up 16%. NBC’s 2014 coverage matched the year-ago 18-49 rating (1.4).

    Go Days! With SoapNet now gone GH and Days will see an increase..

  • DenverDean

    Just like the huge increases with Y&R + B&B, the bad weather last week certainly played a factor. However, it’s great to see all soaps continue their upswing. Paring down to four seems to have been the answer.
