The ratings are out for the week of August 15-19th 2011 and there was good news for the folks in Salem and Port Charles! Days of our Lives showed the strongest total viewers gains with adding +147,000 viewers, while General Hospital also did quite well adding +125,000 viewers for the ratings period.

The Bold and the Beautiful also showed some gains adding +25,000 viewers and retaining its spot at number two, followed closely by One Life to Live who lost -84,000 viewers that week, but who still holds in the number three spot!

The basement position this week in at #6 belongs to the canceled All My Children, who is winding down its network television run on ABC…and still at number one, The Young and the Restless, who is still above the rest of the pack, even though it also lost -73,000 viewers for the week.

    Ms. Bell you want to get back on track I have a bucket full of storylines that the fans would love with the characters that they love. I just might have to get in touch with her before she ruins my favorite show!!!!

    I also want to add and I expect to get in a lot of trouble for this!!! Eric Braeden & Sharon Case’s chemistry is off the chart and there is 30 years difference in their ages but boy what I would love to see the look on old Nicky and Adam baby boys if Daddy made her the manor of the house what a hoot!!!!

    I think you could be right on this one. Look at B&B the sister soap of Y&R. They do these types of couples all the time, I see no reason why Sharon and Victor couldn’t have at least a fling. Put some excitement back on this show.

    Crystal Chappell’s portrayal of Carly Manning’s attempt to quit taking drugs cold turkey, played four of the five days during this ratings period. I think her remarkable performances may be why Days had such good numbers. Hard not to watch and look forward to seeing her brilliance conveyed across the screen.

    I agree that CC is doing a bang up job in these scenes. My only wish was that she was staying with the show. CC is one of the best actresses in this genre. I think her character was just not given the right material until it was too late and then they decided to let her go. Oh well I will enjoy her while I can and then watch her on Venice. I still love DOOL though. :-)
