8 May 27th, 2011 RATINGS: OLTL holds at #3, ABC & CBS Soaps show gains!


It was a good week for daytime dramas! The latest ratings are in for the week of May 16- May 2oth and every soap on the ABC and CBS Daytime Lineup gained in total household viewers! Only, NBC’s Days of our Lives lost viewers.

The canceled One Life to Live again stayed strong and came in in the number three spot among the six soaps and gaining 105,000 viewers.  But it was the number one soap, The Young and the Restless that showed the greatest gains with  the addition of 268,000 viewers, and we anticipate with the arrival of Genie Francis today that Y&R will gain viewers again over the next few weeks.

    Can’t believe B&B is 2nd…That’s the dumbest soap on the air right now. No one on that show is beautiful. Steffi is so fugly. Brooke is the only one on the show that has some appeal, but age is catching up with her. No I don’t watch anymore.

    My bad, it’s last where it belongs.


    Kalamaty replied

    It’s not all bad…. Don Diamont is smokin’ up the screen, there. He’s like a perfectly aged slab of beef-cake!

    I like KKL looks…at least she’s natural looking and not deformed like Hunter Tylo who ruined her once beautiful face.And Don Diamont….he’s so good when he’s bad.Thats what getting older in a good way looks like.So sexy ! The writng on the show can really get bad, but I’m biased because I’m still missing ATWT and my beloved Van Hansis!
