DAYS Only Soap to Gain In Viewers Versus Same Time Last Year; Tops GH In Key Demos!

Photo credit: JPI Studios

The ratings are out for the week of May 7-11.

The Bold and The Beautiful gained the most total viewers for the week with +38,000.  General Hospital was the only other daytime drama to gain total viewers, up +2,000.

However, when looking at the ratings picture overall, it is Days of Our Lives who is almost at +300,000 more viewers versus the same time last year, and it looks to have the healthiest future.

Days, once again, is nipping at the heels of GH for the 3rd spot, (Days last week held the #3 spot in total viewers).  The NBC drama has already past GH for the number three spots in the key womens 18-49 and 18-34 demos.

General Hospital also received more bad news.  It scored a new low in women 18-49 total viewers, and it has tied a low in the women 18-49 ratings share.  As well, GH tied an all-time low for the third week in a row in the women 18-34 ratings share.

Meanwhile, Y&R, which is still the ratings juggernaut soap-wise, lost another -13,000 viewers for the week.  They’ve also tied a low in households for the second straight week, and they’ve also tied a low in the women 18-49 ratings share.

GH deserves the trouncing it’s getting. The show has long ignored the fans pleading to give us less Sonny & Carly. And it has just gotten worse. They bring SB back and write the WORST story for his return. The triangle of boredom and passivity. And worse of all Peter/Henrick is on almost every day in a story that destroys the background of one of GH’s most beloved characters. And the actor is HORRIBLE

THANK YOU, LUCY D! I agree with you a 1,000%! Not only do a lot of viewers ask for less of Sonny and Carly; but, what do we get in response-Laura Wright’s out of work, live-in boyfriend, Wes Ramsey, on EVERY SINGLE DAY, in one of the most atrocious storylines ever retold! What makes it worse, is that the boyfriend can’t act! He thinks he is reciting Shakespeare-it’s dreadful. Also, Jason returns, and it is BORING-CENTRAL!

they really messed Jason’s return up. it should have lit the show on fire and instead it turned into the Peter show

I came back to GH after years away when Steve Burton returned but quickly stopped watching. I didn’t recognize most of the characters and they just didn’t grab my attention. I saw Tamara Braun and wanted her to be Carly again or at least interact with Maurice Benard but nothing. And I saw zero chemistry between Sam and Drew but tons with Sam and Jason. The story moved so slowly even if Sam and Jason finally got back together it wasn’t enough to hold my interest. Can’t believe Michelle Stafford left Y&R and the #1 soap for an also ran character like Nina on what is alternating now as the lowest rated soap. I’ll be sticking with my CBS shows where I recognize the cast.

”’Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings”’
It could All be a game changer if ratings were actual numbers..
A great many do not and can not watch ‘Live’ or ‘Same Day’

Media is watched at will, these days, and I’d bet a great many watch their soap next day, weekend binge, after midnight, etc,
I have never accepted the numbers as accurate viewers.

Still- GH needs to clean house and bring in writers that understand what GH was and should be.
GH is not even near what it was, its core, it’s heart and soul of old.
This FLUFFY version of GH has been its slow death.
(also- General Hospital has become Lazy, very Lazy)

tidbit/ RC is the youngest writer and that shows as obvious.
Also- RC is a brave writer.
days will take over GH, wait for it.

I wish i could put my finger on whats making GH viewers tune out, i still love the show but i even recognize that its lacking something. for me what the show needs to do is refocus and fine tune a few things and get rolling again . heres my list of what they need to do.

1. bring back genie francis and give her a big storyline like they did w/ SB from the get go….
2. peter august got to go. i mean i love seeing finola hughes front and center but not in this storyline.
3. the sam and her two horn dogs (drew and jason ) is boring as hell too, these two act like she’s the last cold coke in the desert,
4. i want to see Elizabeth more, she would of made jason return more interesting if she was more involved, her interactions w/ jason have been limited to that of an acquaintance. i saw a glimmer of hope today when liz and franco were planning their wedding and franco asked liz bout her never seen family( her parents, sister sarah and even hayden now) hopefully something is coming down the pipe involving the webber family) so heres to hoping..

#3. I love when Drew pointed out to Jason.. ie: about whom Sam will be with. as he points out to JAson about “being” the NOBLE ONE. ???? what the? where’s the fight… when this trio lacks SO MUCH PASSIONISTA. don’t bother. geez! perhaps it’s Sam mode to be subservient any way. as she ogles Jason EYES… get it … okey dokey. MOVING right along.. WOW was this a big HIT … wink wink.. 4th and last place. Hey Frankie goes to Hollywood. you placed a lot of hoopla .. all your “eggs’ in one basket… cut the NOBLE histrionics.. why should Steve Burton be so amenable OR catered two. GH will feature the trio of Spinelli, Sam , and Jason… turning .. let them burn

WHAT WILL BE THE NEXT HIT ?!?! Jerry Jax?!?! Helena is still alive ? PEOPLE these “Villains” are so old… never wooden.. but .. will not serve the desired demographic… 18-35 ? oh well. GH had that chance with Valentin. now he’s taken a beating . taking the blame for Anna son… and mucking up his marriage once again… oh that stung… as Nina tells him… LEAVE while your daughter still LOVES you. that hurts

so what will Frank VAlentini do? FIRE Shelley… I don’t know that Chris added any thing either.

what I’ve posted must mean ??? no matter how much posts have lamented how GH was not being served by Ron Carlivati… PEOPLE it’s been 3 years.. under Frank /Shelly / JEan/ Chris…

in one year.. Ron Carlivati @DAYS has WON the triple crown PLUS supplanted GH. no small feat. at this time… RC couldn’t have crashed GH… in three years.. Frank Valentini did this

Patrick
Patrick

#4. @GH. DUMP Roger Howarth… rehire Robin Christopher PRONTO. Rebecca Herbst as Liz Webber is all the SPARK Intrigue.. from the get go you NEED. YOU SAW this happen with Jake Dow. that’ Billy Miller. sumptuous… heated trigger. I feel like these posts are for naught. as I’ve posted.. are these writers even up to the challenge ? PEOPLE. under Frank Valentini regime: it’s been 3 years and no go. this cast has been so heralded.. so “desired” . LOOK outside the box… FIRE THE Corinthos’ . Plus Franco and Finn… FRESH…. simply means.. start writing for the cast

hi aria..
your list of what GH needs is not mine lol
-Genie/Laura- I do not like the character and I’m ok with her being gone.
-I really like Peter and am waiting for his next chapter.
– Elizabeth is Boring, a stale character.
– I agree with you on ” sam and her two horn dogs (drew and jason ) ” LOL they are so not entertaining.
I hope Drew never ever has to be put with Sam again, she destroys the Drew character by making him stale.

Aria, it’s time to cut ties with Parking Lot Pete. He’s one of the worst hires in one of the worst rewrites in history. # 3 made me laugh, “last cold coke in the desert!” hahaha

congrats to Days. it is the only soap putting on quality tv right now. GH needs to realize that the Peter,Franco and Nelle show ain’t working,the show needs change. Y&R is boring.
