The weather, not the stories drew viewer because all the soaps did well that week– but I believe there was a lot bad weather that week and perhaps some folks normally at work were at home decided to catch up on a soap since they were trapped in their homes. If next weeks ratings are as good, then I might believe this is a trend, but if they level off, then this week was just a fluke.

They was up last two weeks as well, using the weather excuse doesn’t cut it for three weeks in a row.

Christmas and New Year’s holidays— again people are home during the end of Dec. and early Jan. It is the same every year, the ratings go up bit over Christmas and back down– and that is why to see a big spike like that– after the holidays for every single soap has me skeptical that these numbers reflect a trend. Not saying it isn’t good news, obviously the more people who are at home, available to watch will watch, the better. It is a good thing– it means soaps aren’t dead, there is an audience, it is just that the… Read more »

I agree with you whole heartedly… MarySF…

holidays… new years eve… vacation… weather… all culminated in ratings spike

I can only share…. if this helps new viewers… to DAYS and GH… then so be it… it’s worth the effort… to tune in

i’m taking a stand… for, Michael Muhney… and cast/production mishap… i’ll boycott for 1 month and longer

I’m only going to pay attn to the ratings post Jan 30 and like you say every other soap had record highs too so this is not unique to CBS.

thank goodness… which further strengthens our viewpoint

it’s not just because of habit… that teles are turned on at ll a.m… at the normal time slot for CBS

only reason… Y&R has remained steadfast…
and i have a heart left for….

but… this time around… i’m arousing… take leave … take a leave of absence.. that TPTG acknowledge… fan reaction… fan appeal…. that this time….

too much upheavel… has circumvented… ratings dip and ratings dive

Yeah, I think the weather had alot to do with it. The ratings are up for all soaps, not just CBS’ shows. If the ratings stay as high in the next few weeks or go up higher, then I’ll buy that it’s the “great” stories on all shows. Right now, I don’t see it.

Loving Thorsten Kaye as Ridge on Bold and Beautiful. And of course, Heather Tom is the best! Good for the Bold and Beautiful. Only soap I’m really liking right now.

Oh my gosh! I totally agree! Finally a Ridge who can act!!! Thorsten and Heather now have the chemistry and I watch for it everyday. I wasn’t sure about him as a replacement choice at first but he delivers every single time.
Growing tired of the Liam/Hope/Wyatt triangle but can’t have everything.

Wow I don’t even watch B&B Y&R and I think it’s great news 4 soaps. you three are Debbie Downers.

I don’t know who you are referring to but since my comment was one of three on this post for a while I am going to assume I am one of them. I am not a downer– I am skeptical why? Because I have been watching soaps for over 40 years and been following the ratings for all of them for a good number of those years. Ratings patterns are pretty much stable, meaning the same audience watching the same show. During ratings sweeps shows show a spike, generally because most large stories come to a conclusion or begin in… Read more »

Im not watching anymore YR. Even though Bold and Beautiful isnt my favorite, I enjoy it more, less depressing and longer term storylines that what YR has become. People are watching because they are watching Adam, I even turned it on this week just to see Adam.

Brooke, played by the always beautiful KKL, has been a soap favorite for over 26 years. She delivers in EVERY SL she is in. She can play the vixen or the ‘always contrite” Brooke to perfection. She is the most bashed character in soap history..but she evokes strong emotions, whether its loving her or hating her. She is the absolute best and I am glad B&B still shines with Brooke…
