RATINGS: B&B has strong week; only soap to show gains!

The ratings are out for the week of January 2-6, the first week of the daytime drama of 2012.  The Bold and the Beautiful was the only soap to show gains for the week, with total viewer eyeballs nearing 3.5 million and with a gain of  +36,000 viewers.   Seemed the Cabo remote storyline featuring the quadrangle of Steffy, Liam, Hope and Thomas had fans tuning in and wanting more.

One Life to Live in its second to last week of ratings, and despite heralded stories, failed to add anymore viewers as it was nearing its last week and actually lost -184,000 from the previous week.  Y&R continued its dominance at number one even though they also lost -166,000 from the previous week. And,  DAYS remained in the fourth spot.

General Hospital was in last losing more viewers and households in key demos. But the ailing soap looks to get an infusion of life with the announcement of upcoming arrivals of Tristan Rogers, Emma Samms, Finola Hughes, Roger Howart, Michael Easton, Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, along with newly transplanted One Life creative team of Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati.  Let’s see how things shake out, once all of this hits the Port Charles canvas.

Barbara I do not know what age group you are in but B&B will probably not entertain you unless you want to watch teenyboppers who can not act on 5 days a week. I do not beleive this survey not that Y&R is any better. Bill Bell’s legacy has been destroyed !

Also if you watch Y&R prepare yourself for soft porn everybody sleeps with everybody and we have male actors with awful hair pieces. I am sorry I am such a downer but I use to run home from work etc to watch these shows now I hit the FF button. But go ahead give it a try hopefully they will all wake up and do a reboot to save them.

How do “they” calculate the viewer numbers? Regardless of that, it is clear and simple: those who used to watch AMC are trying to watch B&B and the same may be true of the OLTL viewers. I know I tried B&B but it is so very slow, storyline is boring even with Cabo locale. So I am now watching old Murder She Wrote in that time slot on my lunch hour. I tried to watch another one on SoapNet in the evening but it (cannot even recall which one!) had such fake characters – very stereotyped “Jersey” among others that… Read more »

I have never been able to figure “ratings” out. I have watched soaps every single day of my life since I was a teenager & how can anyone know that? I was once sent a Nielson ratings form in the ’80s but it asked only about my family’s nighttime viewing. I had to fill it out for a week or so, that was it. So could someone explain once & for all, how it can be determined how many people are watching a particular show? Michael, can you shed some light on this mystery for us? Thank you.

The ratings I am looking at show OLTL had gains of 342,000. over last year and
B&B is up 241,000 over last year. Yes if you take it week by week B&B has the increase but if you compare by year OLTL did have gains and the greatest gain of all the soaps.. And in the women 18 to 34 OLTL tied with Y&R. Sadly, OLTL is now off the air and my television is very boring now.

How this show is on the air and OLTL got the axe amazes me. The writing is sophmoric, they treat the audience like morons and the acting is atrocious. Ronn Moss has played the same character for like 25 years and you can still tell he reads from a teleprompter or cue cards.

This makes me laugh! Ron Moss and whoever plays Steffy literally MURDER me every day. LOL too funny!

Can someone, who is a fan of Y&R, please explain to me why on Earth Sharon is sticking by Victor’s side so much? I mean, this is a man who is directly responsible for putting her behind bars. He was there on the mountain when Skye fell to her death and did nothing to help her or Sharon…consequently, Sharon ended up in prison for things that Victor did….but for some reason, she is on this non-stop conquest to single-handedly save Victor. Not to mention, how the entire town was in the park, the night that Diane died, but no one… Read more »

Phyllis slept with Deacon outside next to a dumpster, then hooks up with Ronan in his gross motel room & now back to Nick. Victoria slept with Deacon too, of course Niki has too. Sharon slept with Billy & was married to his brother Jack. And when I see Jack & Nick in a scene together all I can think is Jack has been married to Nick’s mother & both of Nick’s wives. Yuck. This show is way too entertwined sexually. And I do not get this Sharon/Victor thing at all. They were kissing yesterday!! She makes the worst choices… Read more »

I don’t know how ABC thinks by replacing a legendary show like OLTL with mindless dribble like that is a good decision. No show that they replace AMC or OLTL with will ever give them 40+ years of loyal viewership.

And answer me this…..Is Victor is prison or a hotel/spa? I have never seen a prisoner get so many visitors in a day. The whole town just comes in and sees him whenever they want.

I was just watching yesterday & today’s Y&R thinking the very same thing. Victor literally spends his days in prison at the visitor’s room. I am so glad he is home & I hope to hell nobody on that show goes back to prison this year!!!

Totally agree Rob and we still can not get Thorne out of the basement and still wasting Windsor Harmon’s talent.

Hey I just heard a funny line the reason soap operas are going off the air is because they can not compete with real life being displayed in the media every day. Torrey MAB is ruining Y&R and maybe she is saving on wardrobe Sharon in prison blues for months then Victor. Their theme song in prison is “I Love A Parade”.

Lately I’ve really been wanting Deacon to show up. I just really want to see things play out with him & Hope. Maybe she will show him unconditional love. He seems capable of loyalty & love so maybe Hope will inspire him & bring out the best in him? Ridge is such an unbelievable prick to her. I just would love Deacon to put him in his place! Yea!! Just a thought. <3
