RATINGS: General Hospital Hits New Low In Women 18-49! All Shows Down In Total Viewers!

Courtesy/ABC

The ratings are in for the week July 1-5th and it was not a good week for soaps all around, and especially for General Hospital in the key 18-49 female demo where the ABC soap hit an all-time low in viewers! GH had  523,000 viewers where its previous low in the category had been 527,000 back in February of 2o12!  In addition, GH remained in the fourth slot of the four network shows with 2,332,000 total viewers with a loss of -121,000 for this ratings period.  However the good news, is that GH was still up 90,000 over this time last year.

Is General Hospital’s airtime of the new characters played by Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson, and Michael Easton … Franco, Kiki and Silas bringing the ratings down?  Or, is it fans are not clicking with Morgan Corinthos and/or the story with Kiki and Michael?

The Young and the Restless remained firmly at number one, but lost the most viewers for the week with -160,000, but still came in with a tally of 4,396,000, and it is behind 109,000 from this time last year! Y&R did gain viewers in the key 18-34 and 18-49 female demo, however.

The Bold and the Beautiful remained at number two reporting in with 3,423,000 total viewers and is up over this time last year +308,000. B &B was the show to beat this ratings period as Taylor let everyone know Brooke and Bill’s little secret, their fling and Brooke’s pregnancy, and Katie became unglued because of it, and was ready to get payback on Dollar Bill and her sister!

Days of our Lives remained in the third spot ahead of General Hospital with 2,597,000  and down -68,000 this week,  but up over last year at this time  +188,000.   The NBC soap held steady in all the other key demos.  Father Eric’s side effects from the drugs Kristen slipped him, Theresa coming to town and meeting JJ, and the grand jury decided not to send Sami to trial,  were a few of the highlights!    You can view the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here!

OK soap fans, time for you to be our Soap Opera Programming Executive Armchair Quarterback! What would you do to fix your favorite soaps and increase their ratings?  What storylines and characters are working for you? Which, are not? Are you tuning out to General Hospital? The Young and the Restless? Comment below!

The vets are not the answer. The writing is the answer. The vets will not be what brings the ratings back up. The show is a mess and it needs a change in writer and executive producer. These two with their favoring of Roger Howarth are ruining the show. The show is in the basement, and it is really sad. And they refuse to take any criticism. If you try to give it to them through social media they either through insults back at you or block you. If the show gets cancelled we will have Frank Valentini and Ron… Read more »

I think GH had a great ratings bounce leading up to and leading out of the April 50th Anniversary celebration. People who were fans in the 80’s and 90’s couldn’t help but see some of the GH stars talking up the series on talk shows, game shows and in magazines and newspapers. So these lapsed fans tuned in to see what was up. Once their favorites (Laura, Frisco, Noah, etc.) from the heydays got sidelined or left the show altogether, these former fans became former viewers again. I’ll continue to watch as long as Anthony Geary is on as Luke,… Read more »

Exactly! i told all my friends & family who were former GH fans, that GH was REALLY GOOD again! And they watched. But after the Nurse’s Ball, GH went right back to being mediocre, or, as my mother-in-law put it, “stupid”. We want to see our favorites, but that’s not enough. They need to have an interesting, engaging storyline. I have already quit watching as of the end of May .. like you, I am missing Robert Scorpio. Anna&Duke are just boring without him. GH needs a HERO! A magnetic leading man. They could (and should) have made MAC the… Read more »

Yeah, excuses and more excuses for GH. It was a holiday week, a repeat, a preemption, etc. Yada, yada, yada.

GH is a disaster right now. I recently tuned out , no more PVR and I had watched GH since 89. Maurice Benard is the only reason I will tune in, but even his storylines are nothing thanks to the head writer. The OLTL 3 are on waaaay tooo much, I think they have been 3-4 characters each. (Stupid) And TOO MANY NEWBIES no one cares for. Long time GH fans have been totally ignored even crossed by the incompetent writer. To fix GH… More Sonny, Sam, Luke etc (core GH characters) Less OLTL people’s. And get rid of the… Read more »

Re: Y&R – The storylines that aren’t working for me are Dylan/Chelsea and that’s mainly because I find Dylan boring. He brings Chelsea down to the point where she is boring. I honestly think they could get rid of the character and no one would care. The other storyline that isn’t working for me is mysterious Rose. This is another one that I have no interest in following and usually fast forward through. I’d much rather have Neil more involved in one of the corporate storylines maybe making a play for Chancellor or something. I am enjoying the paternity storyline… Read more »

Britt/Patrick/Sabrina is getting interesting. Olivia/Sonny/Connie is interesting . Nikolas/Elizabeth/Aj is also interesting. I like the idea that Sam wants to find her father. Tracy/Luke/Laura storyline is good to. And Lulu/Dante/Maxie with the baby storyline is great too. Carly/Sonny/Ava/Alexis/Sean is really the best storyline. They would bring up those storylines to get the rating back on top.

louisa

GH needs to get back to basics. Focus on Laura, Luke, Tracy, Felicia, Mac Frisco, Anna and Robert Scorpio…and all of their children. Nikolas, Lulu, Maxie, Robin etc. That’s your show. And it’s a good one. Forget the newbies. First person who needs to go is Sabrina. She is a major FAIL. Can’t watch her. And as much as I love One Life to Live…these new characters are horrible. I also don’t like Eva Jerome at all. I was very happy to see Georgie back, and to hear Connie is leaving. That’s a step in the right direction.

It’s summer! Everyone takes a vacation, including the actors. Whatever is missed during the day, fans catch up watching their favorite soap on either Soapnet, Hulu or on the networks website. I’m sure if all the numbers were added up from the different medias, they’d be thrilled.

GH ís not making good use of its legacy characters – Laura, Scotty, Lucy, AJ. I keep waiting for relevant story lines for them, but none have appeared other than the crazy vampire story and the waste of the Ccasadine story to introduce new Lulu. This is a great opportunity to reconstitute the Qs, but that family drama is a caricatue of what used to be. I’m not going to waste time on Olivia and her visions. Quirky, but not in a good way.

Y&R- storylines that need to die out-Dylan&Chelsea because she annoys the crap out of me with her one expression acting, Victoria&Billy because the less I see of Victoria the better I feel. Adam/Victor/andthatannoyingchic, what the heck is Y&R doing????

GH-Kiki/Micael/Morgan-boring and no chemistry whatsoever between either character, it’s so hard to watch Kiki with anyone, especially since kiki has a meaning in my family which is not so flattering.

I’d like to know the ratings for Y&R for the week of 7/8/13, I bet they were through the roof. The Jack/Nick/Summer/Phyllis storyline are some of the best episodes I’ve seen in years.

I love Y&R as much as ever. I’m sad to hear that Michelle Stafford is leaving. However, the storyline with Summer/Kyle/Nick/Jack has been fodder for some amazing performances. I love Dylan and Chelsea but miss the amazing Adam (M Muhney). I know he’ll be back in full force soon though. B&B is another favorite on my DVR, but had been going stale with the whole Liam/Steffie/Hope triangle ad nauseum. They also rely much too heavily on recap (memory) fodder for a 1/2 hour show. Move the story along people!

Never liked the Franco character so even if they want to change him, redeem him etc., even Roger can’t change my mind. Liked him waaay better as Todd with brown hair. Like Kristen, she’s a hard working actress, but really dislike the name Kiki. Morgan doesn’t do it for me either…but maybe the storyline they’ve given him doesn’t help. I know its summertime/teen stuff, but this year it’s really a bore.

GH has, IMHO, been systematically destroyed since February 2012 with the arrival of the new team. Months of time was spent watching a baby switch with a character (Tea) from another show. Some viewers did not know and did not care about this character. More time was spent on the Kate/Connie story. Johnny was thrown into insta-romance with Carly which left me wondering how that would ever happen. My personal favorites, Dante and Lulu, were left with no story for months. Todd and John McBain were given a lot of screen time. Months later, John was made into Steven Clay,… Read more »

All three actors changed their lives to become part of GH. I didn’t mind them as their former characters, and I still Like ME. I abhor Franco and I can’t stand to see him on screen (would have always disliked him but the constant screen time, now coupled with the completely hackneyed “Is Franco Jason” tangent, I have to turn it off from being so appalled at the writing.) I feel for Roger Horwath. His schtick as Todd was entertaining. But, at this point the only thing for TPTB to do is to let him go with a big bonus… Read more »

We keep saying that we don’t like the storylines with Franco/Todd and Kiki and Michael but no one seems to care and as a result they’re losing what was their main fan base, the older women. The writers don’t seem to realize that teenagers aren’t the main fans of this show and most people don’t want to turn on their telly and watch someone come to work and play with his real life girl friend on the show every day. The fact that their characters are “supposed” to be cousins makes it super creepy, and her flashing her new assets… Read more »

It always surprises me that people complain “soaps” are boring in the summertime– because they have always been like that. TPTB know people are away, or out enjoying the outdoors, not sitting home watching soaps. They aren’t going to waste their best stuff on summer viewers. I was actually shocked this whole fall out with the paternity tests on Y&R happened now- suspect MS leaving forced them to move it up a notch. Also some soap actors are enjoying holidays too- so they go MIA — usually we get teen romances and newbies at this time of year- it is… Read more »

A lot of us OLTL fans just started watching to see the continuation of Todd, Starr and McBain’s storylines. I thought those transitions were handled fairly well and those characters brought me into the GH storylines. NOW however, we have OLTL back (even on TV now) and the former OLTL actors are now in new roles that we have no investment in. I can definitely see how people who enjoyed their former roles, and enjoyed the 50th anniversary nostalgia would start tuning out as it has become practically a brand new show.

Something needs to change and fast. I am all for new characters and for integration. But slowly. What we are seeing is saturation. Viewers are not invested in these characters because there is no history. They have to realize they hit 2 year highs in December, not with the OLTL3 front and center, but with legacy characters like Robert, Anna, Robin and Faison. Since then its been hit and miss with heavy promo for the 50th that produced a spike, but nothing to write home about because the 50th centered on another new character and her Cinderella complex.

As others have said, the show had taken a creative nosedive since the anniversary and it’s not looking any better.

The story line that definitely does not work for me on GH is sonny with olivia and connie. Olivia and Connie are both so annoying and boring. They both need to go and just put Carly back wtih Sonny.

I can only speak for GH, because that’s what I watch. I am honestly not sure what’s happened over the last couple of months. The show had been really fun and exciting to watch. And now….it’s just not. There are too many characters, the background music has become cheesy, and yes, it is hard to watch the OLTL actors in new roles on GH.

These ancient day soap operas need to stop w/ rehashed arcs and cliched characters. There needs to be new storylines told w/ racially diverse actors. African american core families don’t get the same priority as white core families. b&b has 2 lesbian partners w/ their 20s daughter. Yet there are still no Asian american patriarchs and matriarchs w/ their sons and daughters as romantic leading characters.

Hey “bc,” if you knew the history of GH, you would acknowledge that waay back in the ’80’s, they had a very active Asian storyline with Yank, Jade, etc…it was quite a cool intriguing mystery, but the best part was that it was a creative effort that grew out of imagination, not just someone bending to today’s constant clamoring by the “pc” brigade.

Why can’t the ratings tabulators use data from PVRs to determine who is actually watching a show? Maybe people aren’t tuning in during the first air time, but are recording and watching later. Personally, I think GH is awesome right now! The writing… Read more »

THANK YOU!!!!!!! Totally agree…seems to be the prevailing opinion on most discussion boards, too. Just wish we could get a petition going to get rid of that obnoxious character and the annoying, talentless person who plays her!!!!! Keep hoping the delicious “Dr. O.” will bump off that little simp and put us all out of our misery…Did you hear that “Cartini???”

I am a loyal GH fan but it gets harder & harder to keep watching. The show is a big mess. from kissing cousins to bringing Franco back. RH is a great actor so he will make it his own but it just was a stupid move. ELQ by now I don’t care who runs it! AJ & Elizabeth are adults can they do something already! Move the stories a bit faster & give us a clue about Robin & Robert!

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
