RATINGS: GH Has Strong Week! B&B Up Too!

General Hospital had the best week of all the four networks daytime dramas for the ratings period of June 18-22nd.  GH has the most gains adding +128,000 viewers and landing in the third place among the soaps with 2,422,000 viewers and is now ahead again of Days of our Lives.  GH was the only soap for the ratings period to increase viewers in the key 18-49 women demo!

The Bold and the Beautiful was the only other show to show gains adding +12,000 viewers and holding strong in second place with 3, 140, 000 viewers.  Of note: B&B and GH also picked up male viewers with men 18 and up, as did DAYS.  As for the number one, The Young and the Restless, they lost another -120,000 viewers and DAYS lost -112,000 viewers.

The week topped off for GH with the ABC series winning the Outstanding Daytime Drama at the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.  Now the key question is, with Good Afternoon America about to launch as its lead-in for the summer on July 9th will it kick-up the numbers further for GH?  And what will it all mean in the long run?   Let us know what you think of GH’s chances to rise further in the ratings? And what you would tell your favorite shows to do, to increase their ratings?   To view the complete ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network click here!

off topic, the new opening is trash. A 10 year old coulda made it on their home computer. It’s embarrassing for a show 50 years old to be represented with that…i could go on. Anyway, to ratings, yes good week for GH but Monday saved them. If they didn’t hit a 2.0 on Monday they would have been last place again bc they only had 1.7’s the rest of the week. The plots are becoming predictable and many folks online, especially twitter are upset with all the recycled plots from OLTL and I can’t blame them! It’s true.

i like the new opening because it is quick – no more wasting time. That extra time is helping with squeezing in more show and with being able to fit in another quick commercial, which helps pay the soap budget. a lot of the plots were in place long before the end of OLTL and before they got the OLTL producer and writer. So it was GH writers copying plots seen on OLTL, and actually seen on other soaps too, so not just rehashing OLTL. The actors formerly from OLTL (and that by the way isn’t just these latest ones)… Read more »

Way to go christy, and thank you, thank you, thank you, for your research on the emmys and how many general hospital got at one time. I did say to ann, what other prime time show got more then 5 emmys in one season? Best show, Best actor and actress, same with the supporting and younger stars? I asked her to give me more info and she didn’t get back to me, she said that the prime time shows got more then gh. I also agree with you about the complaining, it isn’t the time and the shows you mentioned… Read more »

If you’re a passionate fan of GH like I am, there are gonna be vents every now and then. I ALWAYS stand by the show and will be with this show until the very end. I don’t mind OLTL people on GH. And by the way GH had higher ratings than OLTL for 42 1/2 years out of OLTL’s 43 so I don’t understand why people think OLTL actors are GH’s saving grace. That’s ridiculous. I’ll take as many OLTL actors as you can throw at me, but if you know GH it has never been written consistently in such… Read more »

Perhaps you are right. If this continues, GH might end up like OLTL with more than 3 million viewers and surpassing B&B. The predictability and horrors of it all.

I disagree ……… I don’t think GH will end up like OLTL…Ratings are so good they have to keep it up…I think the new regime are doing a good job…By the way not to many men watch the soaps including my husband…It’s a small percentage..I didn’t think men watched or liked the soaps..I thought you guys liked action movies or boxing………….

I’m happy for GH. Now I need a good balance of newer characters and legacy characters. I don’t want a smattering of legacy characters here and there. I want to see them as key characters in storylines. Respect the history of the show. Writers… watch youtube and do your research before you write for a legacy character. Interweave the history of the show with the newer characters and stories. Bring back ALL of the Scorpios PERMANENTLY. Finally, bring back love and romance. GH should be good to go if they manage that! Hope these ideas help…

Why B&B has anyone watching is beyond me the Liam/Steffy/Hope has been going on too long I quit two months ago watched again one day nothing new. As for GH the one complaint I have is Connie is the real one Kate was made after the rape of Connie so in reality Connie is the Host if you beleive in such things LOL!

I wish that Days of Our Lives would balance out the show a little more. It has been The EJ DiMera Show for too long!
I’d like to see John and Marlena every day, but would settle for more than one or two days a week.

Personally I will not watch “Good Afternoon America”. I vowed to not watch anything during the OLTL time period unless it is a soap. When GH moves to the timeslot in September I will tune in. I have never viewed the “Revolution” and will never view GAA. GH will continue to grow in the ratings on its own.

Heather
Guest

I want Good Afternoon America to fail even more than The Revolution. If not, it could ultimately become GH’s replacement in the future. Remember, GAA doesn’t need to get good ratings. All it needs is to get ratings like The Chew and it’s bye bye GH.

Boycott GAA.

Heather, that’s what I am going to do, that good afternoon america crap won’t be on in my home, we can’ watch any thing in that 2 o’clock hour until general hospital takes that spot, we have to let abc know we are here and we are going to continue to boycott there network.

That’s the main reason I won’t be watching GH anymore….I saw the writing on the wall, when they brought John McBain on….I knew they were going to try and relive the chemistry with Sam’s character, that they had on ‘Port Charles.’ So instead of tuning in and watching this train wreck inevitably happen, I decided to stop watching all together. It makes no sense that after everything that Natalie & John went through, for him to now all of sudden brush off his family and move on to some new chick. I’m disgusted with the storyline, and will not tune… Read more »

Very good insight. It does defeat the purpose of including OLTL characters when the storylines undermine who they were, as the audience understood them for years. This was compounded by the awful events on GH. What was the point of bringing Starr to kill Cole and Hope, of bringing Tea to kill Victor’s baby? I can’t look at John without missing Natalie and Liam too.

Torrey
Guest
Torrey

That’s my point exactly, David…. Frank Valentini goes on and says keep your fingers crossed for OLTL, but what’s the point? If it were, by some miracle, ever to come back they’ve changed and ruined so many things for the characters of OLTL that it would be hard to just forget and go on and watch blindly without addressing the issues that have occurred, while in Port Charles. I agree with what was the point of bringing on OLTL characters, just so you could kill them off? I get it….you want to pair Starr up with Michael, but was it… Read more »

How many emmys did general hospital win? 5, I wonder if any of there prime time shows won that many for one show, That alone should make them put promos on during prime time. Your right about the fans, They did leave because of all the mob crap, maybe finding out that most of it is gone they will come back, At a few sights a lot of people said they will come back when they hear that Sonny Corinthous is dead, I would rather he stay alive, just not in the mob any more.

Im a huge Sonny fan..and although I agree that the mob stuff has become to great of a story…people were turning away way before that. I stopped watching because somewhere along the line GH lost its roots. The stories in general became pathetic..predictable..and just down right corny (i.e..text message killer??? Seriously?). You cant write a soap the same way you do a sitcom where something happens in one episode and its all forgotten about the next lol. Soaps have a long history…and people remember this history. So when that history is disrespected…your going to turn people away. I can quote… Read more »

Yes, Sonny did look at bit darker then he usually is, I thought it was my tv, Maybe he had to much makeup on. Fv/Rc are our guys from one life to live Frank Velenti and Ron Carlivati he is the head writer, those two are making improvements on General hospital. I don’t like the nu-Kristina either her attitude gets worse every day, I tried to like her, I just can’t, sometimes it’s best if they get rid of someone that the fans don’t like, in this case if I was in charge she would be out the door, and… Read more »

.A small note concerning Y&R you let Doug Davidson who plays Paul give him story and he runs with it the guy is so overlooked a great job and a great shout out also to Peter Porte who played his son Ricky. MAB if you guys would write for these veterans they will deliver and you will get viewers back Friday’s episode left chills up my back!! In the words of Michelle Stafford Doug Davidson was F/Amazing!!!

I think FV and RC are doing an amazing job; so are all the actors and actresses! Good, bold stories, written well and acted well will always keep people tuing in. Mix the vets with the newbies and balance them out with historic care. Screw the network suits and fight for the integrity. If shows were written, produced and acted as if they only had a few months to live all the time, everyone would constantly be excited to watch.

Hey Barbara T – so for primetime emmy award winners, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Primetime_Emmy_Award_winners this chart goes all the wayyyyback to 1949!

It will bring back a lot of memories of shows you used to watch as a kid – all those shows in the 60s that is! ha! The chart is a little different from the daytime, as they have 3 Best Show categories – comedy, drama and variety. Then Lead Comedy/Lead Drama actor and Lead Comedy/Lead Drama actress.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

Photo: FX

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
