The ratings are out for the week of September 15th-19th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives which was the only network soap to gain in total viewers! DAYS tallied in at 2,534,000 adding +34,000!
Looks like as things were heating back up between Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott), Chad (Billy Flynn) was making his presence known in Salem, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) was trying to move on with her life away from Bo, and admitting she has feelings for Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove), Eric (Greg Vaughan) was making a sacrifice to help save John (Drake Hogestyn), these story points and other helped the series also show gains in the key Women’s demos as well: DAYS was up in Women 18-49 and Women 25-54!
In fact, DAYS was the only soap to gain viewers in the female 25-54 category. And DAYS was also the only soap not to lose viewers in the 18-34 Women’s demo.
The Young and the Restless lost the most total viewers for the week losing -180,000 and dropping its 1st place lead to 4,522,000! And the number one soap also lost the most viewers in the women’s 25-54 demo!
General Hospital which was full of surprises on-screen during the ratings period was down in total viewers ever so slightly -7,000, but still close to the 3 million mark with 2,996,000! In addition, GH added some viewers in the Women’s 18-49 and 18-34 demos.
