Good news for “General Hospital.” The most recent ratings revealed that the soap closed out 2019 with a bang, thanks to the boost on the ratings of the ABC drama.
The latest Nielsen ratings, which ended last December 29, showed that “General Hospital” landed second in the most coveted category, which is the women demographic between the ages 18-49. It earned 0.43 in the category that’s most attractive to advertisers.
