The ratings are out for the week of October 3rd-7th and it was not a good week for most of the soaps! At the top, The Young and the Restless is continuing to have some intense ratings losses and new lows in several key demos. However, the sudser still remains in the top position. Perhaps one of the most indicative signs is that Y&R has lost over 765,000 viewers from last year at this time.
Things aren’t looking bright for General Hospital either. The only soap that will remain on the ABC lineup is now at the bottom of the ratings heap and lost another -348,000 eyeballs for the ratings period. GH hit new lows in the key demos of 18-49 women.
Days of our Lives has moved on up in the rankings. The rebooted series has moved into #3 position ahead of One Life to Live, which clocked in a bad week losing 298,000 viewers! DAYS also lost viewers this past week, but it has gained over 112,000 viewers from last year at this time.
The only soap to gain viewers and holding strong at number two is The Bold and the Beautiful. The CBS half-hour soap added 55,000 viewers as their Aspen story began to pick up steam.
