RATINGS: GH, DAYS, and B&B All Gain In Viewers!

courtesy/ABC

The ratings are out for the week of July 16th -20th and it was good news for three of the four daytime soaps, that all increased their viewership.  Topping the list with the most added viewers was Days of our Lives who badly needed a boost!  The show brought in +148,000 for the ratings period, and added the most viewers for the week in the key 18-49 female demo.  On the converse, DAYS is still having record lows in the 18-49 female rating share!

Over at General Hospital, things are looking better and better thanks to the hard work of Valentini and company.   GH posted another +125,000 and is nearing being at the 2.5 million viewer mark if they continue to make strides in the coming weeks!  The show also continues to be ahead of Days of our Lives in the rating,  And from this past week’s story with the Robin bombshells, it looks like the next rating period should be stronger too!   

The Bold and the Beautiful  continues to do well adding another + 75,000 viewers and even though many have complained about the constant airtime of Hope/Liam/Steffy its not driving viewers away significantly.

Finally, the show that has made all the headlines last week, The Young and the Restless, they are the only show to lose viewers once again losing another -13,000 in total viewers and the number one soap was down in viewers in the key 18-49 female demo.  So, could a changed not have happened soon enough?  Can the show get back on track with Jill Farren Phelps and Josh Griffith steering the Genoa City ship?

Ok soapers, weigh-in!  How are you liking the stories on the four soaps?  What would you change?  What would you add to lure viewers back to daytime dramas?  Let us know your thoughts?   You can view the entire ratings via Soap Opera Network here!

Eventho, some of us are angered by them taking away our precious soaps, should all watch the soap operas that are left before they take them away from us. Ratings are the key to keep them alive. Even if you don’t know the story line just turn your channel to them or record them daily. I did but I got hooked in watching BB and Y&R.

I hate that Y&R got rid of MAB…I am so scared of what JP will do to them..she hate vets!!!! If over the next few weeks they start moving away ect or getting killed off (ie Alan Q) I will be done with Y&R till MAB is back!!

GH fan,

Maria Arena Bell will NEVER return to Y&R. Also, it should be noted that Sony Pictures is not giving JFP total autonomy where Y&R is concerned. They will be keeping a very close eye on her as she unfolds her vision for Y&R.

As for Young & the Restless, first let’s get past this Christine thing and Rickie’s death, have the girl get her memory back it’s getting so old Get Christine off the show she is boring as hell. Get all that Rickie did finished, find the knife and let poor Paul go home. Let Phyllis get past all this.. she was totally a different person back then. Get Jack to walk again Get rid of Sharon too, many of us get so tired of her and she doesn’t add anything interesting to the show. Bring some NEW action to town. Oh… Read more »

I’m loving GH again! You can finally see the work from FV/RC clean of all the past mess / agenda from the old regime. The show is much more balanced….and when I say balanced I do mean in part that their is much less Sonny & Jason (as they say,”Thank you Soap Jesus!”). More importantly, I LIKE most of the characters again. I was not an OLTL watcher but I am loving the transplant characters! Roger Howarth is amazing as is Michael Easton. I have become an instant fan of KDP (Blair) and hope to see much more of her… Read more »

I think the drop in viewers for Y and R last week is BECAUSE of the head changes, not tje rradon for them. Not all fans are celebrating Maria”s ecit. I know Im not! Adding zjosh is good, but Jill is too fire happy, if she likes u, great, if not, start looking for another acting gig!

Let’s be serious, Jill Farren Phelps almost destroyed GH and trust me I watch Y&R also and the stories are horrible. They are just going to get worse with her at the helm. Good luck Young and the Restless.

Your right about that and hopefully she will take franco with her, because she likes him so much and puts him on the y&r and he will never again show his face in Port Charles.

Me thinks Todd and Blair might have something to do with that ratings spike on GH. IMO, their amazing scenes were the best of the week.

I’ve been enjoying GH so much again. Frank and Ron are moving the s/l’s plus not having agenda s/l hogging the screen is all good. Starting to see Jason M. coming back more he really has been a “borg” for 4 yrs. I for one am stoked about all the “returning” characters and first glimse is Robin fighting to get away from Dr Evil or should I say Ewen 😉

Love that Sony & CBS fnally gave the Hack MAB the boot. The show had become a boring and stupid mess. She never gave any fallout from big reveals. The latest one is the hit and run storyline with Phyllis & Christine from 18 years ago. MAB decided to make Christine the bad guy for wanting jutice done to the person that tried to kill her years ago while Phyllis the attempted murderer is being supported by everyone. I really hope since MAB was fired for bad ratings that the new writers and EP will fix this storyline and have… Read more »

Of course the ratings are up on all the soaps. Soap opera fans have no choice but to watch the few soaps that are left. Especially since the horrible shows they replaced our soaps with. If you are a soap fan, since they canceled GL,AMC,OLTL is there any other choice except to watch these three.

Loving GH..always have! Praying their ratings keep going up and ABC/D has the sense to keep it and not cancel it. Have always watched YnR off and on…but the story lines are just horrid anymore so am drifting away from watching it.

Loving GH and DAYS right now. Sorry to see DAYS be off the air for 2 weeks. Hope this won’t cause a drop in viewers. NBC needs to have lots of promos on through this time to keep the interest alive.

YES! A thousand procent, They are the only young adults with any sparks on B&B. Jeez, is the eye humping EPIC! I just joined their fanboard and I can’t get enough of their videos on YT. Doesn’t Brad Bell know chemistry is King for any couple?

This is great news that the ratings are up especially for my favorite soap GH! What a smart idea of Frank Valentini, Executive Producer of GH, to bring Michael Easton onto General Hospital and pair him with his former leading lady Kelly Monaco! These 2 actors have still got it! Amazing onscreen chemistry and the ability to draw viewers into the story and make them care about Sam and McBain aka McBam! They are the reason this former viewer tuned back into GH! I am also enjoying everything with crazy Heather. Robin Mattson must have a blast playing her.

I’ve watched GH since it began. I love this show but I have to work so I DVR everyday and watch as soon as I get home. I love the added OLTL characters. OLTL was my 2nd favorite. I have an Aunt with a brain injury and she loves GH and I quizz her every week on it. She loves Luke and Sonny. (don’t we all) I can’t wait for Anna to find Robin and Jason to find out about his son. I LOVE TODD! I would say ditch Trey, Kristina, Kate and Ian to boost ratings. Give us more… Read more »

Been watching GH a very long time. Years. Love Jason and Sam and was so excited when they married. their story has been horrible ever since they got married. Shaking up GH is one thing but destroying a Golden couple like JaSam with contrived BS is another. John McBain does not have half the chemistry he once had with “Livvie”. Now he is just a cheating man and a dead beat dad. None of the couples on GH are rootable anymore and GH is off my screen for good,

I think it is great for the OLTL fans to have their favorites on GH. I was never a fan of OLTL so it doesn’t excite me to watch them on GH. I am not a fan of Michael and Starr, not a JM and Sam fan, and certainly not a Todd and Carly for which I am sure is next on the agenda. I realize that new characters come and go on soaps all the time, but combining OLTL and GH doesn’t work for me. I am glad though that it is working for many and the OLTL fans… Read more »

I am glad to hear some fans are loving it. Unfortunately not everyone is. Maybe when the writing gives the GH characters something to laugh about, brings some romance in their lives, remember their true characters and not change them for HW agneda….them others will start to enjoy GH once again too.

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
