One Life to Live not only went out in style and class, but with fantastic final ratings numbers! The show many dubbed “The red-headed step-child of the ABC Daytime lineup” illustrated to the ABC network just how wrong they were to ax their most truly prized property as viewers responded not only in the final episode, but through the entire week!
For the ratings week of January 9-13th, One Life to Live had averaged 3,120,000 total viewers that is +407,000 from the previous week! It was also the highest week for the series since September of 2007. As for One Life’s grand finale, they hit 3,848, 000 eyeballs last Friday, that is by far the highest of the last five canceled soaps including All My Children, As the World Turns, Guiding Light and Passions!
One Life also was number two in the key 18-49 female demo of all daytime programming just behind The Young and the Restless, but they were ahead of The View, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Price is Right and General Hospital!
