General Hospital continues to be on a roll! And two of its continuing major storylines… Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) return … and the story of Maxie (Kirsten Storm) and Spinelli’s (Bradford Anderson) bio-child that were featured in the Monday, October 28th episode gave the lone ABC soap opera it’s most watched episode in over three and a half years!
GH scored tune-in of 3.16 million viewers for that episode! In addition, according to an ABC press release for the ratings week of October 28th to November 1st: “Monday’s telecast which revolved around Robin learning of Patrick’s engagement and Maxie’s frantic preparation for her baby’s return – stood also as its second-most-watched telecast in over two years in Women 18-49 (857,000/1.3 rating) and two and a half years in Women 25-54 (1.13 million/1.9 rating) – since 8/15/11 and 3/25/11, accordingly.
In addition, General Hospital grew its Total Viewer audience for the fourth consecutive week, rising to an over 10 month high (2.91 million – since 1/21/13), set an over 2 year high in Women 18-49 (748,000/1.2 rating) and over 2 and a half year high in Women 25-54 (989,000/1.6 rating) – since weeks of 8/15/11 and 3/28/11, respectively – placing a competitive #2 in the demos, and was the #1 program for the 11th week in a row in Women 18-34 (259,000/0.8 rating).”
