Here now is what many fans of All My Children and the soaps have been waiting to see, the final ratings week that included the 41-year-old soap. And, we can report for the ratings week of September 19th -23rd, that AMC added a whopping +499,000 viewers, which was expected with the exciting returns and the fact that the culmination of the series was covered every where in pop culture and people wanting to tune into see how the show decided to end its run on network television. This gave AMC its best weekly performance in years with a total viewership of 2,990,000 eyeballs.
The week was also a good week for soaps with 5 of the 6 soaps adding viewers! The Bold and the Beautiful also added + 201,000 viewers, and with the addition of Jacob Young back to his old stomping grounds, we can anticipate that next week in the ratings should be a good week for B&B as well! The Young and the Restless once again retained the top spot and also added +99,000 viewers. One Life to Live fell to fourth place this week, but still added +110,000 viewers.
