General Hospital is on FIYAH! According to ABC, the week of September 23 – 27 showed more gains in total viewers for the lone ABC soap opera and highest to date in five months! Plus, the series remained for the sixth consecutive week the number #1 daytime show for women in the key 18-34 demo.
As fans know, during that ratings period GH got everything in place for the explosive storylines to bust wide open this week! Of course, we are talking about the reveal of Maxie and Spinelli being the bio-parents of baby Connie, and the whereabouts of Robin! We expect next week’s ratings to spike this even higher for GH, since the week of Sept 30 is when viewers got some of the reveals they have been waiting for.
According to the ABC press release for week of September 23-27, “GH surged to a 5-month high in Total Viewers (2.80 million) – since week of 4/8/13 – posting double digit increases over the year ago week across all core categories. Notably, GH ranked as the #1 program in daytime for the 6th consecutive week in Women 18-34 (262,000/0.8 rating), and placed a solid #2 in Women 18-49 (730,000/1.1 rating) and Women 25-54 (954,000/1.6 rating).”
General Hospital grew by robust double digit margins year to year in Total Viewers (+11% – 2.80 million vs. 2.52 million), Women 18-34 (+44% – 262,000 vs. 182,000), Women 18-49 (+44% – 730,000 vs. 554,000) and Women 25-54 (+31% – 954,000 vs. 726,000).
