17 November 4th, 2011 RATINGS: B&B & GH have Good Weeks! All Soaps up in Female 18-49 demo!

The ratings are in for the week of October 24th -28th and it was a good week for most of the five network soaps and in particular for CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful and ABC’s General Hospital who added the most eyeballs to their daily drama.  B&B added the most with + 113,000 viewers, and has clearly gotten the number two slot pretty much locked up at this point.  GH added +56,000 viewers for the ratings week.

In the key female 18-49 demographic, which last week had all soaps losing numbers, they were all back up again led by One Life to Live and General Hospital who added the most viewers in this category and gained in their ratings share.

Days of our Lives was the only soap to lose viewers for the week.  Now view the entire ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network by clicking here!

    Blah, Blah, up & down, fake ratings and horrible story lines, soap opera’s are the past. I’d rather watch the even trashier reality show’s at least they focus on all the characters.

    I hope GH doesn’t take this that there writing is good. Though Friday was ‘plausable’ it still has far to go.

    ABC Daytime is going to sink like a stone once the Soaps are gone. Love my OLTL and GH… don’t watch anything else on ABC.

    BTW, have the ad networks noted that The Chew is still on when OLTL is slated to begin at 2pm EST? I think they are taking a few extra ratings points by going over into what should be OLTL because people tune in a minute before or so before, or on the hour for OLTL. Instead of commercials btw the two show they go right from The Chew to OLTL.

    ABC must be desperate, LOL!

    yeah I had noticed that when i turned to oltl one day and saw that horrible chew show so i immediately turned it to another channel til it was exactly 2:00. I agree that ABC must be desperate to get people to watch that mess of a show.
    Once OLTL is off abc i will be done with abc for good.

    Looks like some passive aggressiveness above. Gotta love those people that sign on anonymous message boards just to be hateful. Oh, gotta love life in 2011. hehe Anyway, on to my take for the week. At #1, I caught some of Y&R’s episodes on Soapnet: not too bad this week, unlike prior weeks, but a far cry from the glory days. MAB needs to give me her pen so that I can fix her mess. hehe. At #2, I never got into B&B. It’s a little (OK, a LOT) too incestuous for me. Does anyone know the population of LA? Can’t these people find anyone else to date in a city of millions? At #3 is my darling, ONE LIFE TO LIVE, which is still the best of the remaining soaps, although a little slow lately, but RC always has something special waiting for us. At #4, GH: let’s just say, IMHO, they cancelled the wrong soap on that network that I don’t mention by name anymore. Simply unwatchable. Enough said. At #5, I’ve been enjoying DAYS lately. I love Marlena, John, Bo, Hope and Jennifer, and the stories seem to be more focused inter-generational storytelling. Therefore, my grades for the week:
    Y&R: C
    B&B: don’t watch, just not my style
    OLTL: B+
    GH: F (get rid of Sonny, and I’ll up you a grade, and my apologies to above, but can we do without another Brenda return?)
    DAYS: B-

    Your grades are so hateful, but I get it, it’s your opinion. Thank goodness we can still have an opinion in 2011.

    I do love my soaps but have for the last few years been unhappy with how stories are written and produced. It might not help that everyone gets so focused on spoliers and such. The surprise in these shows is often missing because it’s all dissected before the chapters even play. Also, people do not like to invest time or thought anymore. News stories are reduced to sound bites. Businessmen do not want any more the basics. Good storytelling takes time to build and unfurl. If the people do not have the patience, the how can we expect the webs to have the paitence? There is a place for quality daytime drama, and I am doing what I can to preserve that as a fan of the genre.

    Days is freaking boring..no wonder ratings are bad bad bad maybe with the exiting spoiler between Ej and Sami there is some hope for drama and exiting storylines but i don’t have much hope..and yeah OLTL is the best soap right now but yep like it or not Dena is right daytime soaps are pretty dead when you see great storytelling, dialogue, good acting and chemistry on prime time soaps you know that cheesy conservative daytime soaps are not needed anymore..
