The ratings are in for the week of April 16-20th, and General Hospital is in the plus column gaining the most viewers for the week of all four soaps adding + 11,000, and also gaining eyeballs in the key 18-49 female demo. Over at The Bold and the Beautiful, the number two soap remained firmly in its spot and gained +4,000.
Both The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives suffered only small viewer setbacks, and all and all it was a decent week for soaps. Y&R only lost -5,000, while DAYS was only -7,000 viewers. Of course, we want to see all the ratings on the positive side, but its been a very rocky road lately in the ratings … period!

Do you think The Bold and the Beautiful’s pill-popping Hope has got some viewers tuned-in? And, what parts of Y&R and DAYS are still turning you off? Weigh in!
