It was a good week for daytime soaps, for the ratings period of April 23-27! General Hospital is inching closer and closer to finally getting out of the basement spot of the four daytime dramas! GH added +125,000 viewers and only 33,000 viewers separate them at this point, from the number three spot resident, Days of our Lives. But, with all the turmoil going on behind the scenes in Salem, the show managed to garner +7,000 viewers for the ratings period.
The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, the always consistent number one and two soap added viewers as well! Y&R gained the most viewers of all the soaps for the ratings week adding +141,000 viewers, while B&B added another +56,000.
So what do you think of General Hospital’s gains? Will we see it at number three next week? The Young and the Restless adding the most viewers when many fans have criticized the show so badly for its lackluster storyline is also intriguing. And what of DAYS? Are you tuning in? Or, tuning out? And is B&B’s now long-running Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle keeping you hooked? Let us know your thoughts, after you have reviewed the complete ratings via Soap Opera Network here!
