The ratings are out for the week of September 3rd through the 7th, and it was a good week for The Bold and the Beautiful! The series was the only soap to gain viewers adding +87,000 and the CBS soap is maintaining increasing viewership over a year ago at this time.
B&B also gained in its rating share in total households with 2.5/8! Was it all the behind-the-scenes shockers with the departures of Ronn Moss and Susan Flannery that sparked some interest? Or, the storylines for the week involving Rick/Caroline/Thomas/Hope, and Brooke and Ridge’s upcoming nuptials?
Meanwhile both General Hospital and Days of our Lives lost viewers for the week! GH while still maintaining over 2.5 million viewers was down -100,000 and DAYS lost -113,000 viewers and remained in the bottom slot of the four soaps. DAYS also took a hit in the key 18-49 female demo total viewers in the category and rating shares.
The Young and the Restless which is now going through a major revamping as we are seeing the last weeks of Maria Arena Bell’s regime’s work, lost -41,000 viewers but also gained a few in the key 18-49 female demo. You can view the entire ratings picture via Soap Opera Network here!
