The ratings are out for the first week of 2018, January 1-5th, and it was CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful that had the most significant gains in total viewers and key demos.

In story, it was the big reveal when Liam (Scott Clifton) learned from Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) that she had slept with his father, Bill (Don Diamont) that helped push these numbers.

The episodes during that week featured a strong performance by Scott Clifton. B&B gained +172,000 total viewers edging them close to the 4 million mark (3,943,000).  As well, B&B added the most viewers in the key womens demos of 18-34, and 18-49.

General Hospital also had a solid week gaining + 136,000 in total viewers bringing their tally to 2,889,000.  The ABC daytime drama series also added the most viewers in the womens 25-54 demo, and added viewers in the 18-49 category.

The Young and the Restless also had a good week with the highest numbers in total viewers and key demos under EP Mal Young’s tenure with the show.  The top-rated soap added viewers in all key demos.

Days of our Lives was slightly down for the week, but still scoring much better than a year ago at this time. DAYS also added viewers in women 18-34 and 18-49.

Because people can’t turn away from a train wreck. 😉

I agree. And after today’s episode of B&B, (1/19), the train wreck is going to turn into a colossal disaster. Am I the only one that has visions of Ridge beating the crap out of Bill? Let the games begin.

I imagine the same thing. Actually, though I don’t promote violence, Bill’s beating is long overdue!

Why are women 18-49 the big category ? Male viewers don’t count ? Old er women need not apply ?

Good point, as I am an avid watcher of 2 shows and in the over 49 category.

Of course the ratings for the soaps were going to be up. With freezing cold, snowy, winter weather in many places in the eastern/midwest part of country, more and more non-working women are inside in front of TVs during the day. GH’s numbers, however, are also up for the same reason people can’t look away from gruesome car wrecks on the road. That show is a complete shell of what it once was.

Shelly Altman and Chris Van Etten have had three months of consistent ratings. They are a great writing duo together.

GH has some phenomenal acting and fortunately the show stayed afloat because of this. The previous writing was very poor and not until Chris Van Etten came into his “new spot” did things start looking up.

According to the ratings for GH (compared to previous week/compared to previous year):

Nov 27 -Dec 1 : -113,000/+21,000
Dec 4-8: +209,000/+248,000
Dec 11-15: -110,000/+156,000
Dec 18-22: -113,000/-10,000
Dec 25-29: +76,000/+218,000
Jan 1-5: +136,000/+71,000

While they are mostly up from last year, they are not consistently retaining viewers week to week (I would guess that is due to the lack of story diversity — if you don’t like Sonny, Carly, Jason, Sam, and Drew there isn’t much for you as a viewer).

I honestly can’t understand the high ratings for a show that’s only 20 minutes long and the contents are mostly flashbacks. Really?

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

I agree with. And they keep showing the exact same clips. Can’t they humor us with different scenes at least? ! If I see Steffie in her wedding dress with construction boots one more time I’ll scream

I think Scott Clifton has outdone himself this time and is probably headed for another award. Never particularly a fan of his he has finally won me over with his current performance.

I’m surprised Days is down; I’m loving it!

DAYS is the most entertaining and only “can’t miss” soap right now with its mix of diverse storytelling, romance, mystery, and humor.

Y&R is just a mess with its new format, a lack of storylines, and any couples worth rooting for.

B&B is formulaic at best. I just can’t with Liam, Steffy, and Wyatt — any romantic configuration featuring one or more of those characters always has me fast-forwarding.

GH is one note, rinse and repeat. All Sonny, Carly, Jason, Sam, and Drew. Nothing different to entice and retain new or lapsed viewers and with Genie Francis’ exit the show has lost any heart and soul it had left.

Under Jean P ratings were like 2.3 to 2.4 million and they have risen over 400000 since Burton came back and head writer change. Shelly and Chris mesh well together.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
