This November sweeps has been a good one for the daytime soaps! Now, ABC is reporting that General Hospital scored an 11 month high in total viewers for the ratings week of November 11th-15th numbering 2.98 million! And that is the best viewership since the weeks of 8/15/11, 3/21/11 and 12/24/12, respectively.
Looks like the drama that unfolded at Franco’s (Roger Howarth) art gallery opening, in which Derek Wells reveals to all he is indeed Julian Jerome (William deVry), the fight between Morgan (Bryan Craig) and Michael (Chad Duell), Carly (Laura Wright) and Franco becoming closer, Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Silas (Michael Easton) becoming closer, the nasty court custody battle for baby Connie, and the continuation of the Robin Scorpio Drake return (Kimberly McCullough) all contributed to pulling in the audience!
General Hospital also climbed to an over 2 year high in Women 18-49 (753,000/1.2 rating) and over 2 and a half year high in Women 25-54 (1.00 million/1.6 rating), placing a solid #2 in the demos. In addition, GH ranked as the #1 program in daytime for the 12th , time in the past 13 weeks in Women 18-34 (255,000/0.8 rating).
