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’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…

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
