The ratings are out for the week of January 2-6, the first week of the daytime drama of 2012. The Bold and the Beautiful was the only soap to show gains for the week, with total viewer eyeballs nearing 3.5 million and with a gain of +36,000 viewers. Seemed the Cabo remote storyline featuring the quadrangle of Steffy, Liam, Hope and Thomas had fans tuning in and wanting more.
One Life to Live in its second to last week of ratings, and despite heralded stories, failed to add anymore viewers as it was nearing its last week and actually lost -184,000 from the previous week. Y&R continued its dominance at number one even though they also lost -166,000 from the previous week. And, DAYS remained in the fourth spot.
General Hospital was in last losing more viewers and households in key demos. But the ailing soap looks to get an infusion of life with the announcement of upcoming arrivals of Tristan Rogers, Emma Samms, Finola Hughes, Roger Howart, Michael Easton, Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, along with newly transplanted One Life creative team of Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati. Let’s see how things shake out, once all of this hits the Port Charles canvas.
