The ratings are out for the week of March 5- 9th and all four of the remaining network soaps, showed a loss in total viewers!
While The Young and the Restless remained at number one with 4,275,000 and a loss of -78,000 viewers for the week, The Bold and the Beautiful remained at number two with 3,063,00 viewers with a loss of -36,000, Days of our Lives remaining at number three with 2,249,000 with a loss of -119,000 and General Hospital in fourth with 2,344,000 with a loss of -59,000, we can’t help but wonder, what is going on?
What is concerning is that GH had a slight decline fromthe previous week when it was on the upswing for the ratings period report, and was ushering in more big returns, OLTL’s favorites, and continuing to play out Robin’s exit story. Is it a case of a failed reporting rating system glitches? Fans not-on-board yet? As for DAYS, Y&R and B&B, what do you think they need to do to encourage you to watch more frequently?
You can check out the entire ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network here, and also read an interesting item about a snafu that occurred with General Hospital’s DVR descriptions for for the March 2nd episode, that could have confused viewers, and makes you wonder if it could happen again, and if it really had any impact on the outcome of the ratings.
