General Hospital has done it again! The show that has made an astounding turnaround over the last year and half has generated even more heat for itself posting six year high numbers in total viewers for the ratings week of November 25th-29th! The soap aired brand new episodes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the ratings week before the Thanksgiving holiday and those episodes captivated viewers quite substantially!
According to an official press release from ABC: “With mystery surrounding whether Robin is alive, the continuing manhunt for Faison and the drama around Sabrina and Patrick’s wedding, General Hospital generated a near 6-year high in Total Viewers (3.30 million) – since week of 1/21/08 – tracking for its best season in 7 years – since the 2006/07 season.
In addition, GH is soaring in key demos! The soap recorded an “over 2-and-a-half-year high in Women 25-54 (1.04 million/1.7 rating) and an over 2-year high in Women 18-49 (774,000/1.2 rating) – since weeks of 3/21/11 and 8/15/11, respectively – ranking a strong #2 for the week in the core women measures. General Hospital posted the largest year-to-year increases of any broadcast daytime drama in Total Viewers (+20% – 3.30 million vs. 2.75 million), Women 18-49 (+21% – 774,000 vs. 641,000) and Women 25-54 (+25% – 1.04 million vs. 833,000).”
Congratulations to executive producer Frank Valentini, head writer, Ron Carlivati, the directing and editing teams, and the stellar cast for making GH must-see television! Now GH fans, let’s make sure they have a recorded breaking season by the end of 2013!
