The ratings are out for the week of July 9-13th and there was some good news to report for General Hospital! The lone ABC soap was the only daytime drama to add total viewers for the week adding +76,000 eyeballs.
However, Days of our Lives did not have a good week. Not only did it lose the most viewers -176,000 of all the network soaps, but it hit all-time lows in the key women 18-49 demo in both total viewers and ratings share. The Olympics can not come too soon for the NBC sudser, and with the big cliffhanger, some time off, and the episodes from new head writers, Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell about to take front and center stage, the soap is hoping for a boost come mid-August.
The CBS soaps; the number one The Young and the Restless, and the number two, The Bold and the Beautiful also dipped in viewers, but remained steady in their slots.
