In the ratings released for the week of September 29th through October 3rd, it was good week for all four network soap operas in terms of total viewers with each showing gains!
The show that gained the most was ABC’s General Hospital, which benefited from the arrival on-screen of a bandaged Billy Miller (Jason). GH gained +103,000 and put its total viewer tally to over the 3 million mark once again! However in the key demos, it was NBC’s Days of our Lives and CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful that each showed gains in viewers on the positive side: women 18-34 (although B&B did not gain viewers it held the same as last week), 18-49, and 25-54!
