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.

Christy

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) are no longer OLTL actors — they are General Hospital actors.

I say anything they can do to bring in more viewers and keep the show, is OK with me!

been watching since the beginning… and you know I remember actors from General Hospital actors showing up on One Life to Live, I didn’t care — it’s just part of the show for however long they’re on. Like Andrew Carpenter’s father Sloan — he was on General Hospital decades ago. Same actors, same characters, different shows, whatever I don’t care, just as long as General Hospital stays on the air.

I don’t think now is the time to complain about your show… if you’re loyal to General Hospital, then you stick by it, no matter what’s going on. If you want to complain about a show and get it cancelled, go complain about GMA afternoon, or The Spew.. as we’ve already killed the Revulsion, thankfully! ha!

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 above are the ones to complain about, I want my One life to live back and I am so tired of hearing people complain its like they never had new characters show up in port charles before, and why didn’t any of them complain about that miserable character Franco now that was worth complaining about, I believe he was a plant put in the soap to kill it for abc once and for all. And I am also sick of them saying that general hospital is looking like One life to live, Well its not, unless it happens in the future, Isn’t anything even close to how One life to live was. One life to live had heart, and had many wonderful families, General hospital has been a non stop gangster show that killed all the good families they had, I mean why kill Allen, Aj, Emily, Fire lila, Bless her heart.Monica and Edward are hardly ever on, And where is Bobby?Many of us want to know the answer to that question, She was a major player, I liked her relationship with almost every one in Port Charles. And the ratings that are going up are because of those cross overs from one life to live who as you say are now on General hospital. Take away those landview people General hospital will sink like a rock again, And I don’t think that anyone wants that to happen, I think we have gone through enough of the soap killing by abc/disney, I like the music short and sweet to, but hearing 12 seconds I need more time before I can comment. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so Ron and Frank need the time to put our last abc show together. so I will complian about Jasons behavior to Sam and I don’t care for the new Christina, There is no way a kid of mine would take over my home and pull the stunt that she is,He behind would be out the door and I love my kids but they will never blackmail me.Someone said here that When Kristin Storms comes back that we want to keep Jen Lilley, Dye her hair and let her be Kristina, I don’t want to see Jen leave I really like her. Hey thanks again, Christy.

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 a cliche, recycled, predictable way since the new regime took over.

Christy,Thanks again, I always forget about wikipedia. They have all the old shows there you can pretty much research anything, Its nice to go back to the good old days of television, all those great shows, Again thanks a lot.

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.

susan M.
susan M.

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………….

M.V.

But it is indeed THE BEST! I will never stop watching it as long as I and/or the show lives!

Hope

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…

For GH don’t wait too long to get Sam and Jason back with their baby. We have waited forever for these two to have a little bit of happiness.
For DOOL”S do whatever needs doing to keep Peter Reckell. Enough said!!!!

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!

Stephanie

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
Heather

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.

barbara t. Loves one life to live # 1
barbara t. Loves one life to live # 1

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.

susan M.

Today on GH(MON.) Well if Tray’s father is Joe Jr. Then Kate might be his mom..Since Joe Jr. raped her all those years ago..Don’t you think???? What do you think Barbara t. loves OLTL #1…….Let me know…………Have to make dinner …Talk to you later……

susan M.
susan M.

Joe Jr. claims he didn’t rape Kate all those years ago..Who’s lying & who’s telling the truth????????????????????

Michael Parks
Michael Parks

If only they would listen, I would definitely tell the writers of GH to officially bring Melissa Archer on as Natalie Buchanan.

Torrey
Torrey

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 in to watch it. I know that they are two completely different shows, but when you incorporate so many characters from a show that still has a strong fan base and expect us to go along with just any story, just because you think we’ll just be happy to see these characters, you are making a big mistake. It becomes hard to see that character in any other way than what you’re used to seeing. They should have just brought him on as a completely different person…at least then we would not have to sit back and watch and character we love, just abandon his family.

david
david

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
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 necessary to kill off Cole & her daughter….not to mention how Hope’s death was quickly and abruptly dealt with. I get that she wasn’t and big part of the GH canvas, but she was a part of a major family on the OLTL canvas and I’m still very unhappy with how her death was handled…..I mean, all the OLTL fans know what Starr, Cole, Blair, Todd & the McBain family (Marcy & Michael) went through when the whole situation of Hope when Starr was going to give her up….Being that she wasn’t a big part of the GH canvas, why briefly bring her on, just to kill her, when you know you won’t be able to spend time focusing on how the loss of both Cole & Hope effects so many people in LLanview?

And don’t get me started with the whole, baby dying/baby switch story….so sick of that!!! It’s overdone in the soap land, and Ron should know better. Then you throw in John Mcbain forgetting all about his family in Llanview and it all becomes a little too much for me to watch. GH & OLTL are too different shows….And what I gather from a large portion of the long-time fans of GH, not all, but quite a few, don’t seem to be too happy or appreciative with the addition of the OLTL characters onto the GH canvas….so, why do I want to support a show that I was never that big of a fan of, and a portion of the fans are always complaining about the addition of characters that I love? Especially when those characters are being ruined, just so they can fit the needs of GH…..

No John & Sam……………………………………….NO WAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GH needs Melissa Archer. I can’t watch John without Natalie. We waited 12 months for a John/Natalie reunion and only had two days. They are soul mates and belong together. Jolie forever.

ABC needs to let Frank Valentini run promos during primetime. How else are we going to get new viewers or old ones that stopped watching when the show was destroyed by this mob stuff?

barbara t. Loves one life to live # 1
barbara t. Loves one life to live # 1

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.

Ann

Yes primetime shows have won multiple emmys for one show, many more than five.

Christy

Barbara T, he needs to bonk his head and forget … like Jason did and gees, I’d like Jason to get out of the mob too…. they should have hired ugly guys to be mobsters! tehehehe

Susan M.

Does he in real life go to a tanning salon (Sonny)???????????????????He looked even darker today on GH (MON) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Or is it his natural complexion???????????????

capo84
capo84

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 something Sonny said from an episode in 97′ as if that show aired yesterday…so you can feed me some bs now an expect me to just accept it. Also what happened to the Q’s? That was the foundation. Theres no more families…just a bunch of individuals running around like chickens ! GH needs to get back to basics

Pat

I’m happy that the rating are going up for GH but I feel it’s turning into OLTL. Pretty much know the story lines. Maybe switch it up some, Star, Michael….obvious…. Try something different for a change. This mob princess is getting old too.

Don’t like the mob princess story…She’s a SPOILED BRAT & DISRESTPECTFUL! No Class………………….

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 that camera guy wouldn’t be far behind.

Has nothing to do with this….This for Barbara t. Loves OLTL #1…. I thought this would be something you would be interested in and here it is: last night my husband and I watched this old Sci-fi movie from 1954 (THEM!) And guess who had i bit part in it???? He played a cop and it was Dr. Hardy !!!!!!!!!!! He was a bit younger verision from GH…..I have seen this movie quite a few times and never noticed it before…………..

Susan m, david is just kidding, he knows the one life to live crossovers are not ruining general hospital. the post below. june 30th 2012 10:22 pm. the mob princess should go, Do you know what I would like to do to that kids camera?

.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!!!

Judy

I so agree! Friday’s show was INCREDIBLE! What a terrific surprise. Not the usual boring stuff. Yes, I too agree, Doug Davidson was F/Amazing! He needs to submit that show for next years’ Emmys.

…and while the Nielsen numbers for “Y & R” continue to drop, Maria Arena Bell is STILL running the show into the ground with her ludicrous & lame ‘stories’…

Rodd

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.

Damn those OLTL characters and FV/RC. They are ruining GH. The ratings are going to sink. Oops, I don’t know what I am talking about.

I am curious which abc show did win the most emmys for one show in one season, like best show, best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, best supporting actress, and younger actor and actress? I tried to look it up and I can’t find it, Figure maybe you would know.

Christy
Christy

you called me? 🙂 well if you mean 2012 awards, and go by one show, I believe it would be General Hospital – they won 10 awards in total.

at the Daytime Entertainment Emmys, ABC tied with the Syndicated channel with 5 awards each. NBC got 3, CBS 2, Food Network 2, The Hub 1, Nickelodeon 1, PBS 1, Takethislollipop.com 1

ABC-General Hospital – 5 awards: 
• Outstanding Drama Series
• Outstanding Drama Series Directing Team 
• Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series-Anthony Geary
• Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series-Nancy Lee Grahn
• Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series-Jonathan Jackson
    

However, at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards (separate ceremony at the daytime awards), PBS was the winner with 13 awards. Nickelodeon 10, ABC 8, Syndicated 5, CBS 5, NBC 5, The Hub 2, Cars.TV 1, Cartoon Network 1, Disney Channel 1, Food Network 1, MeTV 1, MTV 1, The Style Network 1, OWN 1, VH1 1.

Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Camera Editing For a Drama Series
Outstanding Achievement in Live & Direct To Tape Sound Mixing For a Drama Series, an award they tied with CBS’s “The Young and The Restless.”

if you mean of all time, sweeping the categories, I’ll have to do more research – let me know Barbara T!

Christy

Barbara T – if you want to look at all the winners, on a chart, so you can figure out who got the most awards in one year, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Daytime_Emmy_Award_winners

Christy
Christy

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! Looks like prior to 1954, the best actor/actress was just listed by their name and not a show.

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. Some years, no awards were given to some categories, due to this, a show might only be able to get 1 emmy total.

The most emmys for one show might be The Dick Van Dyke Show. The show got best comedy show in ’63, ’64, ’65 and ’66. Dick got best actor in ’64, ’65 and ’66. MTM got best actress in ’64 and ’66.

In 1973, The Waltons got best drama, Richard Thomas – best actor and Michael Learned – best actress. As far as their categories, that is a sweep. In 1978, All in the Family did the sweep too…. I’m sure there’s more… it’s a long, long chart!

Victor Kiriakis IS IN LOVE. – Brady’s Spiral. – Kayla has no more Patch! Victor and Maggie… find their way back! I was pleasantly, touched.. by the adult “love” story… that played out. Who knew Victor could display such telling Love for another? Watching Victor and Maggie declare their love for each other, without histrionics… “they made mistakes”. Kissed and made up. Geez! this twosome.. had me cheering and wanting more of them! Com’n DAYS! Victor Mans up! Good for Maggie. Course, Maggie keeps bringing up her predilection…Penchant… for imbibing… Give Suzanne Rogers a meaty story… traipsing around Salem, the manse, as first lady. with hands flasked. Campy fun. which brings up… Brady…. is Ian… drugging him? it’s about time… the writers give us Brady… doing something else… then, stuck, glued to the hip of Madison. Relapsing… is good story, that should be shared with the viewers. course, i wonder, if this is the catalyst for Madison, leaving DAYS. I already, posted, that on the last cover of soap digest… that it’s in the rumour mill, that Brady and Nicole, may be “leaving” days… which I really, hope, IS NOT TRUE. imo, no one does, relapse better then Melody Thomas Scott, Nikki, of Y&R. Kayla, shares with Jennifer and Abe… at the Pub! that, she and Patch are done… Divorcing. which, IMO… if this gives us more Kayla… then, so be it. She deserves, more than, standing behind the bar. Abe shares with kayla and Jenn… “you have kids, you go on.” Dag! James Reynolds… and, notwithstanding… Renee Jones… was beautiful. Abe, disclosing… “Come Back, don’t leave me”…. A part of me is missing… I’ve lost something, I’ll never get back. The tribute… of Abe and Lexie… was genuine… REAL, and affecting. by no stretch of the imagination… Love between 2 married people. tidbit, it’s said… that Abe and Kayla, may be a twosome, on the horizon. like i said… if this gives us more kayla… and the interracial story… then, its all good. I still wish, it was Fay… Nicole’s mother. two, things… i’m not sure of…. Nicole and Daniel… dag! slow down… to put out of your mind… too soon… she’s carrying another mans child. and, i clearly, saw.. that EJ sincerely cares for her… the scene in his office… as Nicole hides the bullet case, with one missing…. and turns it in to salem PD. the other, is days… teasing is with Carrie and Rafe. i’m more of a believer, than ever.. Rafe, showed Carrie, his heart… i’m plugging, this one more time: Chandler Massey, Will, wins Emmy! Chandler so deserved this. I don’t watch GH anymore, but I always thought Tony Geary was excellent. Days did so well, and continues to with this story. Chandler, Deidre, Freddie, and others, as their characters were clued in have made the story really powerful, and not just a “stunt”. Drake had the best line this week, when he found out, he told Will “You’re gay, you’re out, and I”M… Read more »

Days of our Lives Renewed Says EP Ken Corday

There was breaking news from the set on Thursday at Days of our Lives.  According to Deadline, the series executive producer, Ken Corday announced to the cast that the show will continue on.  It appears the 54-year-old daytime drama series received a one-year pick-up.

The article cites that when reached for comment, NBC who airs the show, and SONY TV the show’s distributor had “no comment”. However their sources reveal that a deal is being close to being completed and “looking good”.

This comes as welcome news to longtime and new fans of the series, who were concerned for its cancellation after a story ran over the last ten days that the cast was let-go from their contracts.

Under head writer Ron Carlivati, the soap just launched its innovative daytime drama time-jump on November 8th where all the characters lives were fast-forwarded a year.

So, excited to hear that Salem and Days of our Lives will live on? Comment below.

Former GH and DAYS Star Tyler Christopher Update: Judge Rejects Plea From Police To Put Actor In Treatment Program

Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (ex-Stefan, DAYS; ex-Nikolas, GH), who was arrested back on November 11th for public intoxication, pled guilty to two counts of misdemeanor public intoxication, according to a report from TMZ.

The report also notes that the judge in the case rejected the plea of a police officer who begged the court to put Tyler into an alcoholism treatment program.

As previously reported, Tyler was booked on his birthday and was behind bars for two days until being released.  The incident happened in Indiana, where the actor has been residing with his family.

For the public intoxication incident, Christopher will need to pay a $440 fine.

In addition, police noted that they had received multiple calls about Tyler being intoxicated since September 14.

We hate reporting this difficult news.  All of is in the daytime community love Tyler and wish him well and want the best for him.  He is one of the finest actors ever in this genre.
