Not a good week in the ratings for ABC soaps! The ratings are out for the week of October 25th – 28th and it shows that General Hospital hit an all-time low in total households and lost another 98,000 total viewers according to the ratings provided by Soap Opera Network. It would seem Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo’s return and the Brenda storyline antics are at this point, not translating to the viewing audience.
Elsewhere, All My Children ended up in sixth place of the six network daytime drama series. AMC lost another 39, 00 viewers this past week. The bright spot in the ABC Daytime line-up is once again One Life to Live which has continued week after week in October into November delivering compelling interwoven stories and high stakes drama, and the only New York soap, is still at number #4 even though they also lost 9,000 viewers.
To see how the rest of the soaps made out with the at home viewing audience, check out the official numbers and rankings after the jump!
