Genera Hospital is on the upswing with its audience! The sole remaining serialized daytime drama on ABC, climbed to 18-week high for the week of February 27 – March 2nd in the Nielsen Ratings! GH showed gains in the key women 18-49 demo (657,000) and women 25-54 demo (871,000). And, in the results in women 18-34 (172,000) they registered a three-month high, with total viewership (2.403 million) it’s best since the week of Jan. 9, 2012.
However, according to TV Media Insight, The Revolution was still way down from its prior timeslot occupant One Life to Live, but had a small increase in viewers for the ratings period, scoring its second highest total since its premiere. The outlet posted, “Based on the Live Plus Same Day ratings for the week of February 27, recently introduced talker The Revolution on ABC picked up steam, with its second most-watched week to-date in total viewers (1.62 million) and women 25-54 (871,000). But compared to year-ago occupant One Life to Live (using demographic ratings), this was still a loss of 23 percent in total viewers and as much as 40 percent in the three key female demos.”
However, The Chew, All My Children’s replacement is unfortunately doing very well for itself with 2.48 million total viewers for the week, and is gaining ground on AMC’s old numbers, which does not bode well for fans who were outraged by the networks decision to take the town of Pine Valley off the map!
