RATINGS: Y&R, B&B and GH All Up In Total Viewers!

The ratings are out for the week of August 15th through the 19th.  While Days of our Lives was still preempted for the last week of NBC’s coverage of the Summer Olympic games in Rio, the other three network soaps were airing new episodes.

And in a turnaround from the previous week, The Young and the Restless and General Hospital gained in total viewers.  The Bold and the Beautiful, which added the most viewers last week, also was in the positive for the new ratings period..

Y&R added the most viewers for the week adding +124,000, while adding viewers in all women demos 18-34, 18-49, and 25-54.  However, they continued to tie an all-time low in the ratings share for the 18-49 demo.

GH, which added +47,000 for the week, also added viewers in the 18-49 and 25-54 categories, but did not fare as well with the 18-34 females, tying a low for the fourth straight week in that ratings share.

B&B came in with an additional +11,ooo in total viewers, and gained viewers in the 18-49 and 18-34 categories, but was in the minus column in women 25-54.  The CBS Daytime drama also tied a low for the seventh straight week in the 18-49 ratings share.

It will be interesting to see after Labor Day and with Days of our Lives being back airing new episodes, if the end of summer brings higher ratings.  While every soap of the three that aired during the ratings period gained viewers, its also interesting to note that  each lost viewers in a different age demo category.  View the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

Numbers are based on Live+Same Day ratings

(Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year)

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,565,000 (+124,00/-196,000)
2. B&B 3,732,000 (+11,000/+105,000)
3. GH 2,573,000 (+47,000/+81,000)

To speak fact; If I or CC watch or do not watch a soap, what we do is ‘not’ in the Nielsen ratings numbers.. The ‘only’ ones that are counted are the Nielsen watchers.. It is totally in the hands of the Nielsen families/whatever.. As to who is tuning in or out– it is calculated by the Nielsen peoples.. So– if I did not watch GH for week, the numbers going down would not because of me but rather from a Nielsen family. Also– of course the number are up for all the soaps, the olympics have ended.. The households… Read more »

If you DVR and watch commercials and all you count in the Nielsen Ratings. And you have to watch within 24 hours of the airing.

hi Kelly— Neilson does the DVR+7 if you watch it on your DVR within 7 days of airing. But you can’t skip commercials. Those ratings only count if you’re not part of the Nielsen program. Neilson takes into account dvr and they have ratings for that So if a Nielsen person DVR’s a program and watches it within 1 day it will go into the Nielsen rating. If you record it on your recorder it does not count, if you DVR it and you are not of the Nielsen rating program, it is not counted in Nielsen ratings.. Comcast;; C3… Read more »

Actually the Olympics were still on here… that is why DAYS was not included in the ratings…it was not on!

Wish you would stop showing the ratings since they don’t represent the true # of who is watching. Totally agree with the comments by su0000. I am a male in my mid 40’s and I watch GH on my laptop on ABC.com a few days after they air. How am I counted in the ratings??? I bet I’m not especially since your ratings only mention women. I got my dad hooked on GH and my nephew. I bet they are counted either. Enough with the ratings reporting since it is so misleading.

Hi Tommy…there are lots of viewers who aren’t in the demographic that advertisers are looking for whether it be age, sex, race…so the point is even if a lot of people are watching on their laptop, smart phone, tablet or binge watching OnDemand…it just comes down to the numbers they gather and if the advertisers think they’re reaching enough of the market who will buy what they’re selling. What they SHOULD do is sell products that appeal to all the demographics or sell airtime to advertisers who can scatter their target audience ie sell products that appeal to women of… Read more »

Hi Tommy .. fact— You, your dad and your nephew watch GH but, you are not counted unless you are a Nielsen household. All 3 of you are an estimate by what the Nielsen watches….. People seem to believe if they watch the ratings go up If they don’t watch the ratings go down If they haven’t watched for months that is will make a difference, it does not.. It is what the Nielsen people watch that is the numbers in the Nielsen ratings. I watch GH at ABC, also.. I am tracted by ABC for its’ numbers for ABC’s… Read more »

I have never understood why the system never changed to include everyone who has a t.v.

There should be a chip in every TV that identifies what is being watched. And if some people don’t want people to know what they’re watching, then they can enter a code to disable the system and enter a code to turn it back on. Also, for a precise look at how people feel when watching the shows, there should be a chip implanted in their brains, LOL!

Serious privacy concern! Would you want some faceless corporation trackkng everything you watch?

Yes, I wouldn’t mind, but as I’ve stated, there would be a way to disable the device on the TV. As for the chip in the brain, people would have a choice to have or have not.

That’s what the code to disable would be for.

In my mind, the ratings for GH are up because of Genie Francis’s and Jon Lindstrom’s great scenes–LOL!

I hope the increase holds and more viewers saw that incredible scene with Adam & Nick at the jail. Adam asking Nick to look after his son was heartbreaking and so honest it hurt. Joshua Morrow and, especially, Justin Hartley were at the top of their game and this kind of scene shows how great this show can be with the right focus, good writing, and some of the best actors in the business.

I agree, as usual, Soaphound. I have a weakness for both actors. I did feel for Adam….reaching out to his not-so fraternal-brother was momentous. But, that’s because I trust Nick….his response was genuine and not one bit hypocritical.
However, Kay has a point. From whence does this abounding flood of love come? Blood is thicker than water?

Hi Celia…here’s what i think may be the missing link in this turnaround: both Nick and Adam finally realizing that they’ve both been victimized, used, and (in many instances) set against each other by the same father. I agree that Adam’s previously unknown admiration of Nick seemed to arrive out of nowhere, but Justin SOLD IT by virtue of great acting, don’t you think? I’d like Adam and Nick to be closer after this, and I’ve always felt that Adam has a soft spot for Victoria as well. Their interactions have always fascinated me.
