RATINGS: Y&R and B&B Have Great Week … While DAYS and GH Slip!

The ratings are out for the last week in June, the period of June 25-29th 2012, and there was great news for the CBS soaps! Both The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful showed impressive weeks!  Let’s start with number one, Y&R!  The folks in Genoa City gained the most viewers with +272,000, putting its total viewers to over 4.5 million.  Y&R also added viewers in the key demos of women 18-49 and did well with men 18+.

Over at The Bold and the Beautiful, this show continues to show gains each week.  B&B added + 198,000 viewers for the final week of June, and its total viewers are over 3.3 million.  In addition, B&B was also strong in the  key demos of women 18-49 and men 18 + as well.

This week’s ratings show Days of our Lives was again ahead of General Hospital, putting GH in fourth place. However,  DAYS has once again dropped to all-time record lows in the 18-49 rating and 18-34 rating among female viewers.  For the week DAYS lost – 47,000 viewers, but ended up with 2,329,000 total viewers checking out the action in  Salem.

Over in Port Charles, the news was not good.   GH lost the most viewers for the week -145,000, and its total viewer numbers were down to 2,277,000.    To view the entire ratings courtesy of Soap Opera Network click here!

So soapers, why are the CBS soaps making you tune into the action? Are you loving the stories?  If so, tell us which ones are keeping you glued to the set?  And over at DAYS and GH, what is making you tune-out?  How can the shows get you back to watch every day?  If you were the programming executive for these four shows, what changes would you make?  What do you think is working?  Let us know!

I am still watching GH.. Have no interest in watching the soaps on the other networks….I never have & why start now…Stickly the soaps on abc…..Never ventured to the other networks……………….They should change the viewing ages to 45-64 …The older crowd are dependable & home more often…………..Eighteen year olds change their interest like night & day……………………..These aren’t fair assumtions 18-49….That’s how I feel about it…..

Advertisers and networks have to keep reinventing themselves to appeal to the trends of the world today. Studies show the average soap viewer today is over the age of 50. I’m 48, but I understand that the world has changed so much in the last 5 decades and businesses have to keep up with the times to stay relevant and solvent. That’s a fact of life and we all need to get used to it. And the myopic vision of soap fans always troubles me. I started watching GH at the age of 5 with my mom. When I grew… Read more »

Advice for general hospital, Get rid of the reality tv garbage, Us soap fans don’t like it, Bring Natalie back to John, we don’t want Sam and John together as a couple until the Natalie and John problem is fixed, Remember he loves her (Natalie), Also get rid of the new Kristina shes a brat and very much disliked and she annoys everyone Including me.

So did I when they were Livie and Caleb, They were a beautiful couple and they were hot, But the John MCbain now has to either get back with Natalie or break up with her instead of calling her every other day telling her how much he loves her, He isn’t a cheater and it would be wrong to turn him into one after he got back together with her before One life to live was ended.

Agree with Barbara – watching GH because ABC cancelled OLTL – Bring Natalie on for John McBain and his son and quit this John/Sam crap. You missed such great storylines had they been brother/sister instead of alienating OLTL fans (by a kiss) and assassinating John McBain’s character. Would of loved John and Jason as brother-in-laws!! Hope their kiss isn’t GH’s “Kiss of Death”!

John needs to be with Natalie not Sam…..And Liam….Sam still loves Jason …She doesn’t admit this..In spite of everything Sam still loves Jason & alway’s will….Get rid of the mob princess story. It’s ruining the show…Need the right love connections on GH…No miss match ones like John & Sam….Yes they are ruining J. McBain’s character…..Can’t see Anna with Luke..Tracy is a better choice…John & Natalie had the HEAT thing going together you could see it every time they were together..They HAD PASSION…..Viewers want to see this..I know I do…..They need to team up the right people together…The writers need to… Read more »

I like Spinelli….He’s a good hearted person…I like his character…..I hope he is Kate’s son also and not Trey…..John kissed Sam but said he doesn’t want to ruin his relationship with Natalie & he doesn’t want to lose his son either…Going back to Llanview to wait for Natalie to get back fron London & with Liam…Hope it’s a short visit & will be back in Port Charles very soon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why did they even bother to bring John on GH if they are only going to make him look bad? I just saw a commercial yesterday saying starting Sept. 10, GH will be on at 2PM so I guess it’s official for now. How long it will stay there is anyone’s guess since they’re squeezing it out. They hope by changing times after all these years it will lose more viewers so they can have an excuse to cancel it. Not that they need one because as we’ve seen, they do what they want!

At least he changed his mind about Sam and is heading home to Landview to be with Natalie, I don’t think any One life to live fan will ever except him carrying on with Sam unless there is closure to his relationship with Natalie and I know I don’t want to see that happen either, So now whats going to happen to John Mcbain? The one life to live fans will tune in at 2 but that will change if our characters from landview slowly loose their Identity, Me I will always watch till the soap comes to an end,… Read more »

I watch Y&R for over 10 years and personally I think GH is better. Y&R has somehow gone downhill. I think it is the writing but since it is shown in various countries it will always be counted as the highest amount of viewers.

The problems at GH are in story, writing, and “been there done that syndrome” alas since the head people from OLTL have the helm of the show. Its too predictable, I knew two months ago what was going to happen, Kate’s root problems started with Sonny when they were young,and of course the boy doing the documentary-reality show is of course her son, the baby kidnapping story line with Todd is old news, Starr falling for Michael, and John McBain staying around, “where is Natalie and baby?” There is too much nonsense with the mob angle, now we have Traci’s… Read more »

Very True – Storylines are so much like OLTL, we’ve mostly seen them before. The stupid baby switch is ridiculous, after they find out about the baby, watch Tea disappear with Jason Jr, jusst like Brody did with Jolie’s baby. Not again Please!

B&B is doing classic soap with a nod towards unconventional storytelling and twists that amp up the anticipation/impact (I watch to see what’ll happen next, with the wedding and even with something as simple as the iPad recording because that recording had a LOT of impact. I want to see how this reveal will affect the characters involved. It’s emotional storytelling, simple at times but it works and can have moments of great impact. Seeing HOW the characters react is half the fun, character-driven storytelling can make this work for viewers — heavily plot-driven soaps lose so much of the… Read more »

IMO: It’s time for soaps to be written as they were in the past with an emotional connection — not plot, plot, plot and no impact (emotional). Aussie soaps in the 1980s/90s as well as UK soaps of this era did character-driven, less predictable SLs. Sadly it appears some of these soaps (esp the Aussie ones) are now following the American-type soaps into the plot-driven abyss: I say NO more predictable SLs, please. Enough baby-switches, psycho-killers (Y&R! GH!), more human interest stories. And NO reality TV crap, we soap fans HATE that! Soaps are dead or even dying: Viewers are… Read more »

Matt, bravo I wish the writers of GH could take a page out of your book, actually give them the ENTIRE book! GH has become so predictable & unrecognizable to the point of boredom! Everyone of these story lines its like we have seen them before, either on GH itself or from OLTL; its so bad the story lines are identical just different characters are being used. Its hard to tune into the last surviving soap on ABC when the writing seems so off key. I have actually tuned back into B&B after not viewing for quite a while, something… Read more »

Personally, I think the problem with Days of Our Lives is how out of balance it is with regards to what characters get airtime. We’ve seen EJ almost every day for a long time while others, like John and Marlena are on maybe once or twice a week! Some others we don’t see for weeks on end.

And also… I’Ve only been watching Days since AMC/OLTL cancellation announcement. The Lexie dying SL was given way too much airtime.

Rodd

BarbJ, I totally disagree with you about Lexie’s SL being given too much time. She was on for close to 25 years and was a beloved legacy character. I think it got just the right amount of air time.

Dmitri
Guest

I agree with Rob. Lexie has barely been seen on Days, so it was fine that she had plenty of time on-screen before her death. Not to mention she is a fan-favourite.

Stephanie
Guest
Stephanie

I agree as well, a long-term character, and actor like Lexie/Renee deserves a long send off that respects the longevity on the show. I appreciated that they had scenes, and flashbacks with people that had a long history with each other. I was disappointed that Roman was not at the memorial. And we haven’t seen him in scenes with Abe since Lexie died.

Dmitri
Guest
Dmitri

Yeah. Roman wasn’t seen for a bit, then the only real scenes he gets is investigating this whole Stefano thing. He should’ve been seen with Abe at the memorial, considering how they are friends. But I was glad that he learned Will is gay and seemed to be accepting.

I really think if GH is going to regain viewers they are going to have to fix a few things the number one Problem John/Sam yes I know there is fans that like them together but not enough to make up for the mess of John’s history with Natalie and Liam – OLTLers don’t like the destruction of his character and I have posted with non Jolie fans that are angry….they want those actors to stay true to character and no more carnage from any OLTLer that comes over ie killing them…Also the Jasam fan base is huge too can… Read more »

I think Natalie should come to Port Charles & with Liam..Took so long for them to finally get back together…………….Don’t team up John with any one else but Natalie…..That’s what I WANT to see………………….They have a lot of PASSION &HEAT together…………….TRUE LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The writers have to remember the stories on GH in the good old days that worked so well……Not this mob stories or mob princess crap, no more alters etc……. More love relationships ETC……..

You’re right on the money Lynn. I quit watching GH a few weeks ago because I don’t even recognize the show anymore. John would never cheat on Natalie when they fihally got back together when OLTL ended. Killing kids just to hook up an OLTLer with a GHer stinks. Lots of GH actors get no sceen time. I miss Lante. Give Sam her baby back and let Liz move on with Ewen instead of being dumped when the baby is back and Jason finds out the baby is his.

AGREED Lynn, I am a jolie fan as well as a jasam fan. Speaking from a GH & OLTL standpoint characters were assassinated, John/sam/jason especially. It feels like the writers are tricking us, they brought over OLTL characters & viewers only to slap them in the face with this. Not saying this as a jasam fan but John belongs with natalie, i rooted for them for years “Red”/john. Many hate natalie but something about her & john, it was fire, i hated when they broke up so long & went with other people & liam’s paternity was dragged on so… Read more »

General Hospital is losing viewers for seveval reasons: the DID story line so copied from OLTL, the baby swap again copied from OLTL, having characters act out of the character they have been for years. For me having Sam think her baby is dead after what she went through to have a baby is disgraceful.

No big deal. It’s called Life, means nothing.
There isn’t anyway possible that anyone can sit here and Ever convince me that any other soap is better than GH or OLTL..RIDICULOUS!

Y&R is doing the same storyline over and over. It’s like it’s going in circles … stuck hopelessly in the spin cycle: Murder mystery — change characters/actors, tweak a few things … rinse … recycle … reuse. Instant soap. Repeat same process. (Maybe viewers won’t realize they’re watching the same story again and again.) Oh well, it does help get rid of characters who have over-stayed their welcome — or passed their expiration date!

Skye

Y&R my very favorite soap but your right Matt. Its time to take out the trash so to speak. They just got rid of Rickey, His stay should have been longer and kept mysterious, as far as Daisy .. Good bye forever. The one i really dislike is Victor and Sharon as a couple. I guess it happens but Grandpop is how i see it with a way to young woman and her new personality bites. Kind of reminds me of Reva who made it thru all the men in one family on the Guiding light.

If Days uses the return of Eileen Davidson to full advantage, it may help turn the show around. Sony is putting a lot on her return and her characters Kristen/Susan Banks. If they end Will’s storyline, then it’ll be harder for some views (like myself) to embrace the changes. I mean they’d be getting rid of the only SL that actually worked, prob the SL that helped the show win an Emmy for best writing for the first time since 1976.

I don’t think that Will’s storyline is going to be scrapped. Also, they aren’t firing anymore actors, so Will and Sonny are here to stay. I think they’re just going to show them being friends, even though they both like each other, and probably encounter some homophobia. Chandler also said that December is going to be a big month for Will, so maybe WilSon will start there. Days is smart for getting views from both EJami and Lumi fans by showing the Lumi romance while still having Sami and EJ interact. But I hear that a Safe/Lumi triangle is on… Read more »

I don’t dislike Dicole either, but a lot of people do. I still woud rather see EJole or Racole, but Dicole is OK. I also like Melanie a lot and will miss her. I think it would be interesting for Chloe to be on as well. Me and my grandmother discussed that. As for Gabi…I have heard rumours of her being with Chad and them having sex. May not be true, but I also know she is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Yeah, considering the mostly great reviews and Daytime Emmy Awards they got (mostly thanks to Chandler), I think his storyline is a keeper, even if they do slow things down a bit, which I hope they do not.

I’ve been a Y&R fan since the late 70’s. I’m not sure how it can still be #1 because this show is so unwatchable now, due to LML’s and later MAB’s systematic destruction of daytime’s titan. The show seems like an endless meandering of nonsensical plot lines. Also, letting Eileen Davidson go is a HUGE mistake. Letting Daisy go was the right thing to do, however. They also need to write out the following characters: Tucker, YoHarmony, Sophia, Genevieve, Cane, etc. The following need to be brought back and/or put back on contract: Nina, Lauren, Ashley, the original Mac, etc.… Read more »

Whether you like GH or not right now, Ron and Frank are responsible for boosting ratings. It’s been 5 months and it’s still not happening. IMO Ron is just recycling everything from OLTL and adding it to GH.

Ron and Frank, did not boost anything. Except for a few weeks here and there, when the ratings went up, the ratings are the same as when Garin Wolf was HW.

James

Exactly my point. They’re responsible and they’re not doing it. Therefore they should be held accountable yet so many want to praise them. I’ll praise them when they actually do right by the show. I think rating were even better under Garin (although I don’t know why because his writing was like watching wet paint dry). I think GH’s personality has changed too much, too rapidly and long term fans are not used to it. I was never a fan of OLTL and this type of writing is why I was never a fan of OLTL.

david
Guest

OLTL wasn’t this dark and twisted. If they were literally recycling OLTL, they shouldn’t have killed off Starr’s family and Tea’s baby, made John look like a cheat, and attempted to redeem Todd. Patrick is beside himself over the loss of his wife, while Starr who lost her boyfriend AND her daughter is already moving on.

These characters are warped beyond recognition. It seems no one is pleased by the recent turn of events. I don’t know what they are doing.

I heard that Will encounters some homophobia. I would like to see a reaction from Maggie, Caroline and Brady, as well as Austin. Rafe, Carrie and Roman also should react more to this news. But for now they are focusing more on Will and Sonny, which is nice, but how ’bout his other friends supporting him? That would be interesting. I applaud Days for not making this Will’s sole storyline, even if his storyline with EJ is boring.

I would like GH to move away from the central mob storylines and embarce more human interest stories. The hospital is the title character, and the primary setting should offer opportunities for paths to cross and for even some engaging short-term stories as doctors and nurses deal with day-to-day life in those hallowed halls. Y&R runs hot and cold for me. I’d like top see some cast shakedown and some attempts at lasting redemption — other than a Jimmy Stewart turn each Christmas that is forgotten a week later — of characters such as Victor.

Can’t speak to GH’s writing, but it seems the show is experiencing fan wars (because longtime GH fans hate OLTL characters coming on board. Is that affecting ratings? Probably). Days has been a mess (not even a hot mess, just a mess). Days writing has focused on all the wrong characters, fan faves who were burned out when they were written out (and now are back). Marlena is great when she is NOT with John (he’s like dead weight dragging her down… way down). Marlena could be so much more as a characters if she were shackled to the Pawn… Read more »

@Matt, I seriously doubt we will see anything “Kabe” (Kayla and Abe) in the next half of the year. Kayla and Steve will take quite a while to settle down after the divorce, and Abe would never jump into another woman’s arms that quickly after his wife died. But I do think that sometime next year, they would be a nice couple. Them getting together right away would not be realistic, and it would annoy most of the fans. We just want to see them be very close at first. I can also see many of the fans being annoyed… Read more »

I agree, though I prefer Days to GH, with you. B&Band Y&R are too old and too rehashed to be nice and interesting to watch. B&B is like musical beds and scheming galore, especially with Lope/Steffy and Ridge/Brooke. Y&R is just boring murder storylines and relationship drama. These two shows are the equivalent of reality TV

Rob – I agree with your ratings…. even tho, i’ll plug for DAYS…. currently, I think it could easily be DAYS # 1. I watch both shows, GH & DOOL… and, if i could watch them both, on the same day… and not FF thru commercials… to be counted.. ala Nielsons… i’d be stoked. I rate them… on how fast the hour goes by… and when i have on DVR.. like 4 shows of each… which soap i’m most eager to watch. this past week… and anticipation? it’d be DAYS. ON GH.. i’m watching Patricks fallout… and lone baby switch… Read more »

B&B is the most consistent of all the remaining soaps. The writing could be better, even more focused on character. It appeals to a younger demo than the others while keeping many of its older core fans as well… young love is hard to beat, esp in a daytime soap, and esp when there are so many ups and downs (like the iPad recording, etc.) It just works. Yet it could be even better because B&B is NOT at its full potential (as others posters have pointed out.) Thing is if B&B were in trouble, they could roll out the… Read more »

“Y & R” and its yo-yo ratings have become very irksome to this long-time viewer. No matter the week, it’s an inconsistent, over-populated, plot-driven mess of a program. It’s frustrating to watch and I keep hoping and praying for Maria Arena Bell to be relieved of her duties!!

Who would even be interested in such garbage, as if they couldn’t get enough of it in the morning? I still can’t understand why anyone watches The Chew. It’s either soaps in the afternoon or nothing.

I didn’t realize that Greg Vaughan… was on GH, as Lucky… for 7 years… and it would seem…uncerimoniously… let go… for Jonathon Jackson… to return. “allegedly”. DAYS WRITERS… PRODUCERS… hoping, they read these posts….. for the millionth, billionth, trillionth, TIME. free press… coupe… Greg Vaughan, ex-GH. Eileen Davidson, ex-Y&R. Please don’t “XYZ-Expletive” this up. THANK YOU… for Keeping DAYS ON… the lone serial… that NBC needs!

I am so not surprised that GH is failing in the ratings under Cartini’s regime. They’re cartoonish, sophomoric stories have caused me to once again turn the show off after over 42 yrs of watching. Just like the last few yrs of Guza & Phelps I can’t take it anymore. They are destroying history, they dont have the nerve to standup to the backstage politics that continue to pander to Steve Burton, Maurice Bernard, Laura Wright and Kelly Monaco at the expense of the veteran actors and the rest of the cast. And worst of all their fanatical and unprofessional… Read more »

Monday – July 9th. GH – Headlines! Todd – to Johnny/Carly “I killed my Mother, in cold blood.” “I killed my twin brother, in cold blood.” “& that’s just in this last year.” Trust me Johnny, I’m as bad as they get.” Todd OWNS GH. – You can’t put this FIRE out. Johnny/Carly/Todd – Where’s? TEA. McBain to Sam. “We crossed the Line.” “what’s the wrong move?” Sam to McBain – let’s not ruin lives… over a drunken kiss… more to the point… Jason.. saw this happening… and didn’t say or anything… I just don’t get this… is this letting… Read more »

Here we go again…Sharon the needy thief will have some kind of ailment and Nick will rush to the HOs side. He just pledged his undying love to Phyllis who confided something to him that happened a long time ago and what does he do? Tuck tail and run! Typical Nick. I had hoped that he had grown a pair and had developed an adult love for Phyllis.Many people make bad choices when they are young…although they may not and do not always carry it to the extreme that Phyllis did. One must take into consideration what her family had… Read more »

I feel that General Hospital’s ratings may be slipping because of the current storyline with Heather Webber’s return. Her storyline is sickening and may be the cause of the show’s dropped ratings. Before that , the storylines were becoming very intensed and interesting; then comes the Heather storyline and now I feel like fast forwarding. The storyline with sam and Jason’s child going to a character who is not on the soap is not interesting either. Find a way to let Sam and Jason have their child. It would be nice to See the parental side of Jason!! On let… Read more »

I respectfully disagree with you thinking the ratings are going down because of the character Heather Weber, She is the main reason I tune in every day, she is a joy to watch, shes nuts, But is she really? No Robin Mattsons portrayal of Heather Weber is the best thing going on in Port Charles at this time. I really don’t care about the baby switch, however I don’t like that a character from One life to live is dead again, as in tea loosing her child, it seems all the characters that I care about have been killed when… Read more »

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 . #❤️ #😘”
