General Hospital

At first glance, it looks like “General Hospital” was down in the ratings this week after a three-week increase. The ABC soap increased the viewers by 13,000 in the key demo of women ages 18-49. And, that’s not all, the women 18-34 demo saw a huge gain too. It looks like fans are finally watching “GH” regularly again.

Bold and the Beautiful

“Bold and the Beautiful” was the star of the week. In EVERY demo, the show saw huge gains. If that’s not impressive on its own, they outshined “Days” and “GH,” which are hour-long soaps. The CBS 30-minute soap opera had at least three million people tuning in each day, beating “Y&R” three out of five days during the week.

It looks like all four soaps had some good news with the latest ratings. “B&B” had an impressive week. “GH” is still increasing their viewership each week. “Y&R” looks to be flat lined in ratings, but they maintained three to five million viewers each day. All in all, it was a great week for all four major daytime dramas. Check back next week to see how your favorite soap stacked to the competition.
