The ratings are in for the week of February 6-10th for your favorite daytime soap operas and it was not a good week for the now lone ABC sudser, General Hospital! The series brought in its lowest amount of total viewers with 2, 193,000, numbers are of course based on Live & Same Day ratings. GH is not getting any help from its lead-in, The Revolution which again underperformed and is way off the mark from OLTL’s ratings a year ago at this time.
But, help is on the way this coming week for the long-running ABC dramatic series with Robin’s exit storyline set to play out, the returns of Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) and Emma Samms (Holly), along with Finola Hughes (Anna) who began airing again this week. In addition, in the next two weeks look for the debut of Kristen Alderson (Starr) and the Manning family of Kassie DePaiva (Blair) and Roger Howarth (Todd) to also hit the airwaves. New GH EP, Frank Valentini and head writer, Ron Carlivati’s first shows will also begin to air.
In other ratings news, the only soap to gain viewers for the rating period was Days of our Lives which picked up +82,000 eyeballs bringing it to 2,461,000 Salem fans. DAYS also looks to have a big week planned for the week of Feb 20th when many of the stories collide including Sami and EJ’s grief-sex outing, and Will kissing a guy for the first time!
