Oh what a bizarre and sometimes unexplainable mess the daytime ratings are especially when a show is on fire and it is not quantifying in numbers.
On-Air On-Soaps has to tell you that of all the soaps the week of Oct 18-22nd and continuing on through this week, the one that got our attention has been One Life to Live. Every day has been riveting drama at it’s best, and yet the sole east coast sudser fell back to 6th in the ratings with a loss of 97,000 viewers. On the contrary, Days of our Lives is having a bit of a ratings resurgence as the only soap to gain viewers with 118,000 and ending up in third. Every other soap lost viewers last week. Here is how the line-up from Soap Opera Network after the jump!
