After many were of the belief that the little-soap-opera-that-could, One Life to Live would finally be in at number two in the ratings, it has finally achieved it. The cancelled ABC soap is now in second place. But while OLTL ended up in second, it, and all the other daytime soap operas, lost viewers for the ratings week of September 12-16th.
The CBS soaps were hit the hardest. The Young and the Restless still in the number one show lost -382,000 viewers for the ratings period, and The Bold and the Beautiful which has been in the number two slot, slipped ever so slightly to third, which gave OLTL the runner-up position this week. B&B also lost – 349,000. All My Children also lost over 200,000 viewers that week.
Hopefully every show will bounce back in short order! To view the entire ratings via Soap Opera Network And c’mon fans, we need to support these shows and watch them for the genre to stand a chance on network television!
