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.
Make sure to view the total viewer ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network after the jump!
